It’s been 35 years since “Blade Runner” first hit theaters and the long-awaited sequel is ready to hit the big screen. We finally got our first good look at what the film will be offering as Warner Bros. released the official trailer on May 8 with a lot to see and enjoy. So I took a closer look at the trailer and broke down a few details that I found to help you guys get excited about the film which will be released this fall.
Superhero films aren’t just for comic book fans. While many of the most popular and well-done hero films have been based around superheroes that first came to life in the pages of comics, quite a few have focused on completely original heroes who bring their own sense of justice to the big screen. With “Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2” lighting up theaters over the weekend, I took at look at ten of the most notable non-comic superhero films of all time.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a movie-making juggernaut and the poster child for the creation of an extended universe since 2008. It has been so successful that the studio found a cinematic hit with some of its more obscure characters in 2014 with the massively entertaining “Guardians of the Galaxy”. The long awaited followup had a lot to live up to and has been one of the year’s most anticipated films. The final product is, to use a single word, “awesome”!
It’s the weekend many have been waiting for! “Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2” finally hits theaters this weekend to kick off the summer blockbuster season and continue Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So to prepare for this weekend’s fun I took a look at ten fun facts about the film you should or might want to know going into the theater.
One of Stephen King’s most popular book series is finally coming to life as Sony has released the first trailer for the highly anticipated cinematic take on “The Dark Tower”. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Idris Elba, and Tom Tyler in a tale of two worlds, our world and an alternate one whose fates are intertwined through a conflict between a Gunslinger and an evil sorcerer. I took a look at the trailer and broke it down to take a closer look at what we can expect from this upcoming sci-fi adventure.
A lot of buzz has circled around the future of the X-Men film franchise as of late with details still being worked out as to exactly what we can expect from the seventh entry in the 20th Century Fox powerhouse. Recently it was confirmed that “X-Men 7” will reboot the Dark Phoenix saga, a storyline explored in the third “X-Men” film, “The Last Stand”, with fans and critics loathing the first portrayal of the famed comic book arc. There’s a lot of newly discovered details about this announcement to share, so I decided to take a look at where things stand so far.
One of the most mysterious upcoming films of 2017, “It Comes At Night” first hit the public eye with a teaser trailer that offered very little detail on exactly what we can expect from this horror thriller. Now A24 has released a longer, more detailed trailer giving us our first real look at the action, suspense, and potential horror the movie will provide so I decide to break it down a bit in my trailer reaction.
Summer is upon us, which means summer movies season and blockbuster season begins and May is where is all starts. With many films anticipated for the next month, I looked at ten that are among the most anticipated to get everyone excited for what’s to come. Here are the top 10 anticipated films of May 2017
In the age of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube almost nothing is private anymore. It’s a reality that was pretty much scripted to eventually become a focal point for the film industry and is the central theme of “The Circle”, a supposed cautionary tale about the impact that these technologies can have on our personal lives and our intimate moments. However, what could have been a fantastic and harsh examination of society today actually plays out as a boring, uninteresting mess.
The film industry has given the world some of the best and most quotable monologues and speeches of all time. Some have been lengthy and drawn out, others short and sweet, but no matter how long it’s the context that matters and over the years we’ve enjoyed some magical and inspiring words spanning many different themes and situations that inspire us still to this day to live our lives better and approach situations with a new perspective. These are ten of the best.
The penultimate weekend of April 2017 was packed with new releases, and the one that created the most buzz for the wrong reasons was “The Promise”, a $100 million historical drama following a love triangle in the middle of the Armenian Genocide that some are already labeling one of the year’s biggest box office flops. Intrigued by the story and the time period that the film is based in I gave it a watch and, while the film makes a noble effort to drive home the horror’s of the Armenian Genocide during World War I, it loses its way as it bends the line between historical and romantic drama in a way that fails to drive home to true impact the genocide had on the Armenian people and the world.
In 2015 “Kingsman: The Secret Service” became a huge hit for director Matthew Vaughn and 20th Century Fox, so it’s fitting that a much-anticipated sequel is on the horizon, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”. We finally got our first look at the new film in a trailer released on April 24 that promises to expand the world of the Kingsmen with new characters, a new enemy, and new allies from across the pond. I know we got two teaser trailers recently, one that is a normal trailer and the other a super sped-up trailer full of Easter eggs and hints, but I;m focusing on the trailer most viewers will obsess over in the coming months, the full length teaser.
