Ryan Reynolds is a marketing tool on his own. Reynolds has since the first Deadpool movie Ryan has constantly tweeted, Instagram images and updates. I truly believe that Ryan was able to get people out to see Deadpool because of the use of social media. Once again he has done it with Deadpool 2. Earlier he used social media to introduce us to Zazie Beetz as Domino.
Now this weekend Reynolds posted 2 pictures of Josh Brolin in full Cable gear. Brolin’s Cable has the cybernetic arm, and eye along with an adorable teddy bear attached to his belt. This version of Cable is trimmed down but looks dam good.
Neill Blomkamp has been a very busy boy. Earlier Neill release to short film through Oats Studios, titled “Rakka.” Now this time an 26:52 short film called “Firebase”.
Neill Blomkamp along with independent production studio, Oats Studios are producing some great experimental filmed content. Then through various online platforms they will be able to raise additional funding by sale of more original digital content on Steam. Their hope is that they will be able to then give what the fans want by financial support and feed back. So in a small way each financial backer is a producer.
If you enjoy this short film and would love to help support Neill and Oats Studios follow the links below.
If Sony had of just called this movie “Welcome to the Jungle “they probably would have saved themselves a tonne of grief. The word Jumanji conjures up images and memories of late comedic icon Robin Williams and that’s something that will probably not help this film. Many tweets I’ve read about these trailers have been negative .Many for no reason I feel.
The Trailer begins almost as an Homage to “The Breakfast Club” in that 4 students of diverse back grounds get to spend some time in detention. I’m not completely sure this was not a coincidence. They actually gave a little bit more away in this trailer then I wanted to see.Sometimes it’s not a bad thing to keep a surprise how people get from one place to another.
Soon we’re cranking it up with strains of Guns and Roses “Welcome to the Jungle “booming through the scenes. Guns and Roses works with practically every trailer so not reading too much into the movies quality here.
The movies stars The Rock, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan. Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), also signed on for it and he usually doesn’t do scripts unless there is something there so that interests me . Most of the Jokes in the Trailers land, and Jack Black channeling a lovely blonde seems like it might have a few chuckles from the trailer. You are, of course going to see many, many dangerous animals along the way in all their CGI majesty
I found the International Trailer did a better job of selling the movie for me.These folks seem like they had a good time making the film and poking some fun at their character stereotypes so that to me is a plus. If people go in to watch the movie without thinking of Robin Williams they will probably enjoy the movie much more. All the man wanted to do was make you smile. Why not try it?
It’s releasing Dec.22nd and will probably face some pretty rough competition at that time(The Last Jedi drops the week before) but it might be effective counter programming. I say cautiously. Domestic and International Trailers are below. Thanks for reading
A little while ago Scott let you know about a new experimental short film project from Neill Blomkamp. Well today Neill and Oats Studios gave us another view into this new project. Some “more weird shit” as it is mention in the trailer.
We get to see more of the effects coming and more action. Also we get to see Sigourney Weaver in this one. Some of the effects look dam impressive. This looks very, very interesting.
Take a look. Does this not interest you? Come on now just a little right?
ZackSnyder is stepping down from the upcoming Justice League movies after a family tragedy. Snyder told The Hollywood Reporter he decided to step away after the sudden death of his daughter. Justice League is in post production and Joss Whedon will be stepping in to finish help with post-production and do some additional scenes. The plan is still have the movie on track for its Nov 17 release with the help of Whedon.
“In my mind, I thought it was a cathartic thing to go back to work, to just bury myself and see if that was the way through it,” said an emotional Snyder in an interview Monday in his office on the Warner Bros. lot, with Deborah sitting by his side. “The demands of this job are pretty intense. It is all-consuming. And in the last two months, I’ve come to the realization … I’ve decided to take a step back from the movie to be with my family, be with my kids, who really need me. They are all having a hard time. I’m having a hard time.”
Synder also told The Hollywood Reporter that he is already anticipating what some DC fan may think.
“Here’s the thing, I never planned to make this public,” he says. “I thought it would just be in the family, a private matter, our private sorrow that we would deal with. When it became obvious that I need to take a break, I knew there would be narratives created on the internet. They’ll do what they do. The truth is … I’m past caring about that kind of thing now.”
I have been on the side of those wanting Warner Bros/DC to find someone new to helm the DC movie universe. I do like Zack Snyder and some of his work but I felt that he missed with his vision of the DC universe.
But not this way.
Now I am not saying he won’t be back. Yes I would love to see Joss Whedon take the reins of the whole DC universe along with Geoff Johns. I think some wonderful things can happen. But I do not wish what happen to Zach Snyder and his family on anyone.
So I wish the Snyder family my condolences and hopefully Zach will be back soon making movies again.
