Q&A: Blockbuster I’m most excited for/Favorite Marvel Character

Once again, I get to talk about myself with another opinion question! Awesome.  Sarah from Zwolle, La writes:

Hey!  I have a question.  What summer blockbuster are you most excited about this year? Also, what is your favorite Marvel character to date?

 Thanks for the question Sarah!

This is actually an interesting question because the blockbuster movie that I was most looking forward to was Captain America: Civil War – and that movie already came out, I saw it, I loved it.

So now I have to decide what my favorite blockbuster is now that I am most looking forward to.  And I’m going to admit – I’m going to cheat and say that I have two now that are tied for first place! Continue reading “Q&A: Blockbuster I’m most excited for/Favorite Marvel Character”

“Fantastic Beasts And Where To find Them” Trailer!!!

The first teaser for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, like many first teasers, was all about setting a tone and getting the movie’s name out there.  If you check out my past article on it you will see that I was not that impressed with it. It wasn’t bad, just underwhelming. However, thanks to the MTV Movie Awards, we have our first proper look at this prequel/spinoff of the Harry Potter series, and it actually tells looks pretty good!

The film is written by J.K. Rowling, who everyone knows as the author of the absurdly popular Harry Potter novels, and directed by David Yates, who directed the last four installments in the Harry Potter film franchise. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them tells the adventure of writer Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) in 1920’s New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school. 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is set to be in theaters on November 18, 2016. Will the potterheads be happy? Or will they not? Only time will tell.

Star Trek Beyond First Trailer!

Paramount Pictures has dropped the first trailer for the next installment in their retconned Star Trek journey.

After 2013’s  Star Trek Into Darkness‘s mild fan success, Star Trek Beyond appears to have revved its engines in the hands of a new director, Justin Lin, who previously directed four of the Fast and the Furious movies.

The Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” provides an amped-up musical backdrop throughout the clip, also hearkening back to a pivotal scene from the 2009 reboot in which we see a young James T. Kirk rocking out to the classic ‘ 90s track while driving a stolen car.

Producing the film, not directing this time, is J.J. Abrams – who stepped down from directorial duties to focus on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and co-writer Simon Pegg are all back for this new film, and facing what is sure to be a very formidable new foe, Idris Elba.  Who is nearly rendered unrecognizable under heavy alien prosthetics.

Star Trek Beyond boldly goes into theaters on July 22, 2016.

Awesome ‘The Legend of Tarzan’ Trailer!

An awesome trailer for The Legend of Tarzan, featuring Alexander Skarsgard as the “Lord of the Apes” and Margot Robbie as Jane dropped today and it looks amazing! Director of the film, David Yates (Harry Potter and the Order of the PhoenixHarry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 & 2) seems to be bring the jungle legend to life in a very positive way. In the trailer there is beautiful camerawork amidst the trees and what look like come crazy action sequences between the film villains, protagonist, and of course gorillas.

The villain of the film is intriguing, because it involves Christoph Waltz, who is always a great villain. Acting alongside Walts will be Samuel L. Jackson, who will surely bring a manic energy to the film as he always does.

The film obviously is not an adaptation of the Disney animated film, Tarzan, but is more of an adaptation of the collection of books made famous by author  Edgar Rice Burroughs. The Legend of Tarzan has a release date set for July 1, 2016.
