Finally The ‘Wolverine’ We Always Wanted

If you are to believe to all the reviews that have been out so far from the critics, Logan is finally the movie we have waiting for.  Logan won’t be out until March 3, 2017 but with the advance reviews Logan is presently holding a 96% score at Rotten Tomatoes.

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

The film has been compared to a contemporary western. The film has been given a R-rating, thanks to Deadpool that showed a superhero movie with a R-rating can make a money and be a hit. The film is tracking to make $60 million on it’s opening weekend. According to Jackman this will be his final appearance as Wolverine a character that he has portrayed since he originated in 2000’s X-Men. There has been some rumors coming out that Hugh Jackman is having a hard time letting go of Logan. True or not it be nice to see him do it one more time. Hey Ryan think you can get him out for a quicky in ‘Deadpool 2’.

Logan also stars along with Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Deen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq LaSalle, Elizabeth Rodriguez.

Ghost In The Shell Trailer

Again one of movie trailers making a Super Bowl appearance is the movie adaption of ‘Ghost in the Shell’.  Based on the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow.  The first series was serialized in 1989. Ghost in the Shell is a story about a counter-cyberterrorist organization Public Security Section 9, led by Major Motoko Kusanagi. The story takes place in Japan in the mid-21 century.

A big controversy erupted with the casting of Scarlet Johansson in the lead role. To many it was another example of Hollywood’s white washing. Producer Steven Paul in a statement to Buzzfeed  back in June 30th, 2016, hope that fans will be “very, very happy” with the film.

I think everybody is going to end up being really happy with it. They’re going to be very, very happy with it when they see what we’ve actually done with it, and I don’t think anybody’s going to be disappointed.

I love Scarlet Johansson and she has proven over and over again that she can do action. I am hoping that the people over Marvel finally get off their ass and make a ‘Black Widow’ movie

Beauty and the Beast – Final Trailer

rich_beautyandthebeast_header_70af050b

 

Here is the final trailer for Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast”. It’s being released Mar.17th, but I’m not sure that is such a great idea. It’s got a very” Christmasy”(Not a real word, and shame on me)   feel to it with the snow and Victorian vibe . Would probably do better during the Christmas season.

That said, it is a live action Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and well…..he’s beast. There’s an actor there(actor Dan Stevens)but he’s simply….the beast. Rounding out the cast is the voices of(for most of the film anyway)Sir Ian McKellan, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Josh Gad and a whole host of others. It’s going to do just fine.

I do hope after this though they put the concept of Beauty and the Beast……back in the vault for many, many years.

Films out Mar.17th.Enjoy

Lego Batman Movie Trailer plus Lego Batmobile….. Full size….yep…Full size.

I actually did not see the first “Lego Movie” but will watch after seeing the trailer for the new “Lego Batman Movie”. Pretty well all the jokes got a chuckle out of me, and it definitely seems original to me in content and execution. Cast includes Zach Galifianakis, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Ralph Fiennes and MR, Billy Dee Williams.

As if that’s not enough reason to check out the film, the pic above is an actual Batmobile – made out of 350,000 Lego piece that Chevrolet built for promotional purposes for the movie

Movie is in Theatres Feb.10th.Trailer 1-3 below.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

mv5bmtc0mzc2otq0ml5bml5banbnxkftztgwotq5mje4mdi__v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_

 

 

I can’t believe I missed this. Resident Evil is out today. Now when your eyes come back down into your head from what might be a tremendous eye roll……bear in mind….This is the last one.

These series must be making money, otherwise they wouldn’t simply keep making them. It’s not like Milla Jovovich is sleeping with the director…………..she is married to the director…..it’s a totally….totally.. different thing.

Okay, I had my sargasm(sarcastic orgasm Copyright 2017).Let’s move on.

I just watched the trailer for this, and to be honest if your itching for a little apocalypse this weekend,this might not be too bad. I honestly never really had a problem with Milla Jovovichs acting in these films, and to be honest with the abundance of video game property failures that have been made in the last 10 years ,this is actually a success story.

I see Ali Carter is also back(huh?). One pleasant surprise was seeing Iain Glenn(Ser Jorah Mormont) back, as he’s just the type of actor that can bring good to a script simply by being in the film. Another pleasant surprise to see was model turned actress Ruby Rose is part of the story.She was in Seasons 3 & 4 of “Orange is the New Black” and did a wonderful job.

(Side note. On researching the rest of the cast I’ve come to the conclusion that actor Shawn Roberts has as much, if not more, “Zombie cred” as George Romero”. I counted 9 zombie films in his filmography)

If you can’t wait 3 weeks for TWD to start back up and need your fix at the end of the world. This may be for you.Enjoy

 

 

 

 

Movie Monday: “Helio”

‘Helio’ is a award winning short film from writer/director/producer Teddy Cecil.  The short film has won over 50 awards, including Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy Film at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con.

The film takes place in a post apocalyptic underground society where a group miners work for light to survive. One minor gets an unexpected device from a rebel. The story never does not explain why there is a rebellion.  This leads to the miner now being chased by a government that tries desperately tries to stop the miner from reaching the surface. What he finds on the surface shocks and amazes him. The short has very little or no dialogue but that does not take away from the film at all.

The films has to pile a lot of information in the 19:47 length but does it very well.  This is a very well crafted and entertaining short movie.

Power Rangers Trailer #1

I did not grow up watching the Power Rangers when they came on TV. I was to old and to me I laughed at the stupid stories lines and the high quality(cough) Japanese villains. I should of like it growing up watching mostly Godzilla movies. The Power Rangers have now been updated for a new generation and for those that grew up watching. So expect the violence to be two fold. Today updated means more violence.  Okay maybe cartoon violence but still…..Humans are so special.

I am sure if you grew up watching the Power Rangers this trailer and the movie will have you wetting your pants.
