“The Civil War begins”
With a bunch of characters giving us the feel of another “Avengers” type of film, Captain America: Civil War pits Captain America and Iron Man on two separate sides of the Superhero Registration Act. I recommend that you guys not only read the Civil War comic series, but also check out the video game, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. Although this game came out back in 2009, it allows you to eventually play out this major “politically” based storyline. The memories I have of that game are fantastic! The epic film releases May 6, 2016. Check out the official trailer.
As if the NFL and Roger Goodell didn’t already have enough issues to deal with. “Concussion”, starring Will Smith, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Luke Wilson, and Alec Baldwin is based off the 2009 GQ article, Game Brain. Head injuries will once again be at the forefront of the NFL as this film gets closer to its’ release date. The film will tell the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith) who discovers CTE in the brains of some NFL players, which later has life-ending effects. Roger Goodell and the NFL will receive a gift not anticipated as this film releases right on Christmas Day.
“Join The Revolution”. This is the tagline for the final installment of The Hunger Games film franchise. Scheduled for release in November of this year, the film finds Jennifer Lawrence back as Katniss Everdeen for one final battle. Will Katniss and her friends prevail in taking out President Snow? Check out the teaser below.
Comic book fans feel rejoiced. Earlier today Ryan Reynolds tweeted out our very first look at Deadpool channeling Burt Reynolds. Deadpool’s outfit is straight from the comics. Ryan Reynolds is back at the helm as Wade Wilson, a mercenary who is going to bring laughter to moviegoers with his sense humor and breaking of the fourth wall. Deadpool is the perfect character to be adapted to the big screen. His interactions with the audience, and other superheroes should be priceless. I’m glad Ryan Reynolds is back again since portraying him in the Wolverine Origins debacle. He is absolutely the right guy for the part. So good thing they brought him back. Deadpool will be released in February 2016.
“With great power, comes great irresponsibility”
They’re heeeeeeeeeeere! A little over a week ago I brought you the Fantastic Four reboot trailer. This time around it is the trailer for the reboot of a franchised considered “cursed” by many. Sam Raimi serves as one of the major producers of this reboot. Raimi’s horror history includes directing the original Evil Dead series. He also served as a producer to many other horror flicks including the most recent Evil Dead reboot. Watch this version of the movie unfold on July 24.
Ever since the announcement of the cast for the reboot of The Fantastic Four, I have been looking forward to that moment when we would be exposed to a teaser of sorts. That moment is now. See Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell as Mr Fantastic, The Human Torch, The Invisible Woman, and The Thing respectively. Expect to see the film in theaters this summer.
The Barden Bellas are back and ready to entertain us once again. Pitch Perfect 2 will be out on May 15, 2015.
