Marvel showed off a new Black Panther TV spot last night during the Grammy Awards that is now online for the fans to check out. It offers up some more new cool footage from the film and is sure to keep the hype for it alive. Not that it needs any more hype! This film is going to explode at the box office! I've also included a new featurette that focuses on Black Panther's new suit and the capabilities that it has. It's enough cool new tech that is sure to make Tony Stark envious. The video includes Chadwick Boseman and Letitia Wright showing off some of the enhancements and upgrades the new costume that T'Challa wears.
Marvel Studios’ Black Panther follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Angela Bassett, with Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis.
The film is directed by Ryan Coogler and it will debut in theaters on February 16th.
If you've ever wondered what kind of horror thriller that director Steven Soderbergh would make, wonder no longer because the first trailer for his new film Unsane has been released, and it looks great! Oh yeah, I should probably mention that the entire movie was also shot on an iPhone. This just goes to show that you don't really need much these days to make a good movie. All you really need is a solid story and script.
The story for the movie follows a young woman, played by Claire Foy (The Crown), who is "involuntarily committed to a mental institution where she faces her greatest fear – not knowing if it is real or part of her delusion."
I'm a fan of Soderbergh's work and it looks like he's made yet another intriguing and thrilling movie that audiences will enjoy. I love the tone of the film and that the story is set in a mental institute because that kind of stuff has always interested me. This certainly looks like it's going to be a gripping and intense story and I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out.
The film also stars Joshua Leonard (The Blair Witch Project), Jay Pharoah (SNL), Juno Temple (Killer Joe), Aimee Mullins (Appropriate Behavior), and Amy Irving (Traffic ).
Unsane is scheduled to open in theaters on March 23, 2018.
Last week we learned that the next film director Steven Spielberg is developing is a new features film adaptation of the classic musical West Side Story. This news left fans wondering when exactly he will get around to Indiana Jones 5. Well, according to THR, he plans on starting to shoot it in 2019 after he's done with West Side Story. That should give the director enough time to finish it in time for the previously set July 10, 2020 release date.
There's no information on what the story will entail, but we do know that Harrison Ford will be back to reprise his role of Indiana Jones. A couple of years ago I wrote up a list of archeological mysteries and discoveries that could spark Indian Jones' next adventure. I doubt the story will involve any of those, but I'm sure Spielberg will come up with a great idea for the story! I can't wait to see what that idea ends up being!
Are there any story ideas that you have for Indiana Jones' next adventure?
I've got a thrilling trailer for a great looking film that is worth checking out called Mohawk. The film comes from We Are Still Here director Ted Geoghegan, and the story is set during the War of 1812. It follows a young Mohawk warrior embarks on a journey of revenge as she hunts down the American soldiers that are after her. As you might imagine, the movie looks like it's gonna be pretty brutal. I'm really excited about this movie and i can't wait to check it out!
After one of her tribe sets an American camp ablaze, a young Mohawk warrior finds herself pursued by a contingent of military renegades set on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods they call home, Oak and Calvin, along with their British companion Joshua, must now fight back against the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers – using every resource both real and supernatural that the winding forest can offer.
Mohawk stars Kaniehtiio Horn (Hemlock Grove), Justin Rain (Fear the Walking Dead), and Eamon Farren (Twin Peaks: The Return) along with Noah Segan (Looper), Jonathan Huber (from the WWE), Robert Longstreet (I Don’t Feel at Home in this World Anymore), and Sheri Foster (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). Geoghegan co-wrote the script with Grady Hendrix.
We've seen the still frame of Tom Cruise just before he broke his foot while filming Mission: Impossible Fallout, now we have a video breakdown of how it happened. Honestly, it doesn't look as bad as I thought it did...but damn.. it still had to hurt! Check out the video below where Cruise and his co-stars weigh in the whole experience.
There are still no story details for the film, but it also stars Henry Cavill, Vanessa Kirby, Rebecca Ferguson, Simon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner. I imagine we'll see a trailer drop sometime in the near future. Mission: Impossible Fallout is slated for release on July 27, 2018.
It was recently confirmed that Games of Thrones Season 8 wouldn't premiere until 2019. Well, thanks to Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark, we now know the month, and that month is April! While talking with Metro in a recent interview, she said:
"We wrap in December and we air our first episode in April . That’s a four-month turnaround for these huge episodes. There’s a lot that goes into the final edit. You would not want to rush this season at all. We owe it to our audience and our fans to really do this final season to the best of our abilities."
She also goes on to talk about what she is hoping to see happen with Arya at the end of the story:
"I’ve always said I wanted her to find peace. The things that have been driving her through her story have been very bitter and twisted and aggressive. I would love for Arya to find her true self again and let go of this anger and revenge that’s accompanied her on this journey. I’d love for her to be happy."
I hope that happens for Arya as well, but this is Game of Thrones we're talking about here. It's hard to think that anyone will ever find peace. I can't help but think that this whole thing is going to play out like some kind of twisted greek tragedy or something.
What do you think? What do you hope the ending will be like? Do you think Arya will actually find peace?
All I know is that there is going to be an all-out war of chaos and devastation next season. That's what everything is leading up to!
Other than a little teaser trailer that was released recently, I didn't know much about director Jason Reitman’s latest film Tully. The movie has a fantastically talented cast that includes Charlize Theron, Ron Livingston, Mark Duplass, and Mackenzie Davis. They were all great in their roles, but Theron once again shined and gave yet another amazing performance. She’s such a damn good actress!
As you know, Theron has been doing a lot of badass action films recently like Mad Max: Fury Road, Furious 7, and Atomic Blonde. But Tully is nothing like those film. It's the complete opposite. In this movie, she plays a middle-aged mom barely hanging on and trying to hold it together!
Theron plays Marlo, a mother of three kids who is gifted a night nanny by her brother after having a baby girl. She doesn't want to take advantage of it, but there comes a breaking point for her and she ends up making the call. Marlo and the night nanny, Tully, end up forming a very strong relationship and Tully begins to help get Marlo’s life back in order. There is an interesting twist to the story that I won’t get into, but it definitely makes for a fascinating movie. It's almost like a modern-day Mary Poppin's story.
This movie definitely isn't for everyone, but it's a well-made film. I tend to enjoy Jason Reitman's films and I was able to connect with this one because I have three kids of my own and I know what it has been like for my wife and I. This is a movie that people with kids can definitely relate to. If you don’t have kids, this movie might want to make you hold off on having kids a little longer.
The film had a good mix of sad and depressing drama and light fun humor that will make you laugh... if you can relate to what the characters are going through.
The script for the film was written by Diablo Cody (Juno, Young Adult) and if you dig her style, whether you have kids or not, then you’ll enjoy probably this film.
We've got a new promo spot for Jennifer Lawrence's upcoming spy thriller Red Sparrow. The spot offers some new footage from the film which follows a young woman who is trained to be a seductive and deadly assassin for a secret Russian intelligence service. The movie looks like it's gonna be great and I'm excited about watching it!
The film is based on the book by Jason Matthews and here's the synopsis:
Dominika Egorova is many things. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs. A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit. A master of seductive and manipulative combat.
When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.
Red Sparrow was directed by Francis Lawrence (The Hunger Games) and it also stars Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker and Jeremy Irons.
A couple of years ago, the great composer Hans Zimmer announced that he was “retiring” from superhero movies. He provided the scores for The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and many more. Thankfully, it seems he’s coming out of his self-imposed retirement to score X-Men: Dark Phoenix. This announcement was made by accident by Evan Peters who was talking to HappySadConfused at Sundance. He said:
My excitement for this film has just jumped up a few notches. I love Zimmer’s scores. Batman Begins has one of my favorite musical scores from a film, so I’m excited to hear what he does with Dark Phoenix. You can listen to the podcast and the talk about Dark Phoenix starts around the 28-minute mark.
The Walking Dead has a pretty cool, ominous, intense opening theme. It fits perfectly for a show about a post-apocalyptic world where you don’t always know if you’re going to live to see tomorrow. What if this show had come out in the 1980’s though? We most certainly would have more mullets in the show and more denim. I’m not sure if those are negatives or positives, but we also probably would have had a slightly different sounding theme song. Synthesizers were huge back in the 1980’s and GentleBruce has done a synth version of this haunting theme and it might be more haunting than the original. What do you think Carl would’ve looked like in the 80’s?
