Flight Trailer Blows Me Away
I am a fan of Denzel Washington. I am also a fan of Don Cheadle and John Goodman. And aside from his CGI mo-cap movies, Robert Zemeckis makes amazing movies. What do we get when we throw all of these wonderful talents together? We get this.
I was blown away by this trailer. Depending on how the movie is (it looks very promising) I would say this movie may be in line as Oscar bait since it comes out in November. I gotta say, as far as trailers, when it rains, it pours. Three great trailers today.
Ka-Pow 101: Looking at Marvel’s Movie Future
As the country has decided to move past the Avengers and onto the rest of the summer movies, I decided to continue informing you about the future of the Avengers movies. Marvel Studios is already working on continuing and expanding the Marvel movie universe. I don’t know all the upcoming details, but I’m going to take this opportunity to speculate based on the information that I do have. We’ll look at movies that have been slated for release, are in development, and are rumored to be made. There will be potential spoilers in this article, but many of these will be based on comic stories. Let’s continue, shall we? Read More…
Bleeding Cool has released the new trailer for the new 007 film, Skyfall. Check it out:
Not too much on details. We definitely get to see a lot of the modern Bond action sequences that I enjoy. I really hope the meaning behind Skyfall is kept a mystery, but the words I would have said in response to Skyfall: “Anticipation”.
No More Action: Jackie Chan Retires
Three words haven’t meant so much to this nerd since “No more mutants.” Yeah, I went there. But at Cannes, Jackie Chan has announced that he is retiring from action films. He will continue acting with a larger focus on his abilities as an actor, not just a comedian. Read more over at Daily Mail.
I will miss Jackie Chan’s action but at 58, he has gone above and beyond what he needed to do. I will always remember the movies that introduced me to his wonderful martial arts style like Rumble in the Bronx, Drunken Master series, Operation Condor, and Supercop. I look forward to seeing what roles he begins to take now.
Ka-Pow 101: Wibbly Wobbly Avengers Time Stuff
So readers have really been enjoying the Avengers stuff lately. I wonder why. Well let’s add on another layer. You’ve all seen the movies. You know they all are connected. But do you know the timeline? Well now you can. Marvel has released Avengers: The Art of Marvel’s the Avengers (that’s not a long title). Inside you can find a copy of the movie universe timeline. It’s actually a very well-made infographic. Check it out.
I don’t know how much longer we’ll do these Avengers features, since we’re approaching the releases of Amazing Spider-man and Dark Knight Rises. I’ll definitely put up one more lesson looking at the future of the Avengers films.
And another “Amazing” trailer too…
See what I did there? Y’know… cuz it’s for Amazing Spider-man. This is essentially the trailer that was attached to the Avengers, so many of you have seen most of it. But there are a few extra scenes and an extended sequence at the beginning, so check it out.
So if you listen to the podcast, you already know that I am not as hyped about this reboot as Danny is. I am, however, up for seeing it, and I do think it will improve upon certain aspects that I felt lacking in the original franchise. The opening scene in this “super preview” embodies the heart that Spider-man/Peter Parker has as a hero. We also are reminded that Spider-man has lighter side. His wit is his way of avoiding the fear and anxiety of the life he has chosen. I’m curious (and I’m sure we’ll get some answers July 3rd) about who that is talking to Connors in what looks like a prison cell. Norman Osborn? Otto Octavius? The actor has a very Adrian Toomes look to him?
The We and The I Trailer
Prior to its premiere at Cannes, Michel Gondry’s The We and the I now has a trailer. So hit full screen and take a look. Then see what I’ve got to say about it.
Now I know some of you recognize the name Michel Gondry but aren’t sure why. Well, I’ll remind you. His body of work includes Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep, Be Kind Rewind, and The Green Hornet. Now I’ll admit that Green Hornet was a flop, but all of his other movies have been very interesting and deeply emotional. This trailer gives me high hopes for a well-told emotional story. Having been one of those rowdy kids on the bus in high school, I can relate to the events of this film. There’s a lot of potential.
