Actor Tom Holland recently shared a wonderfully touching and inspiring video of a visit he made to a children’s hospital. It really quite moving to see him bringing so much joy and happiness into the lives of these kids.
Yeah, it’s cool to see new stuff from the films that Marvel is making, and it’s fun to talk, speculate, and debate about these movies, but seeing the actors involved with stuff like this, trying to make the world a better place with the opportunities they’ve been given, is just as gratifying. Not only are many of the Marvel actors heroes on the big screen, but they are heroes in real life as well.
This motivates me, and this kind of stuff inspires me to want to make the world a better place. We’ve got a fresh new start in 2017… Let's make it happen!
A trailer has been released for the new 4D Godzilla theme ride coming to Universal Studios Japan and it looks awesomely insane! If you've ever wondered what it would be like to experience a crazy Godzilla attack, then this looks like a ride you'll want to rock out on! It features a Godzilla attack on the ground level and the best part is... you're guaranteed not to die! I would love to go on this, but I have no idea when or if I will ever be going to Japan. This is the same Godzilla design that was used in Toho's recent film Shin Godzilla.
As a way to ring in a great New Year, Hot Toys has released a photo giving fans a preview of their Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 action figure lineup! It includes Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. These are just prototypes that have been made for the figures, but it looks like they are going to turn out awesome.
"It is good to once again be among friends."
As we celebrate the new year and make resolutions, let's join up with Star-Lord's gang of unlikely superheroes and gear up for this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which promises an epic new adventure, an awesome new mixtape, and some exciting new collectibles from Hot Toys!
Plus 2017 is set to be another big year for movie fans, with a slew of highly anticipated movies opening in the months ahead. We can't wait to show you the new offerings we have planned for the year, so remember to stay tuned!
Happy New Year everyone!
I just can't wait to see this movie! I'm sure Marvel will release a new trailer sometime in the near future with a lot more footage for us to get excited about.
Over the weekend, Sylvester Stallone posted a video on Facebook confirming that The Expendables 4 is happening, "fingers crossed," and then teased that they've come up with some great ideas and that they plan on giving fans something completely different. We have no idea what that will be, but we do know that the movie will be released in 2018 and that it will go back to an R-rating. When previously talking about the film Stallone said:
"I have actually entertained the idea of putting the group into such an unnatural environment that it, in an of itself, creates extra suspense and tension: the 'fish out of water' scenario. That environment might not be time travel, but nearly just as jarring."
We don't know which actors will be returning for the fourth installment yet, but I'm sure Jason Statham, Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, and Randy Couture will all come back. You can watch the video of Stallone talking about the film below.
In my opinion, Zack Snyder's Watchmen movie has one of greatest opening title sequences of any movie. It was done so damn well, and we've seen it reimagined for different films a few times over the years, but now we have one that was created for Suicide Squad. It comes from Chris Banks, and he did a great job with it. He did something a little different with it by including a completely different song — "I Started A Joke" by The Bee Gees. A different version of the song was used in the marketing for the film, and it works perfectly for this fan-made video.
A couple new photos have surfaced from the upcoming live-action adaptation of the hit manga and anime series Full Metal Alchemist. They both feature Ryōsuke Yamada as the alchemist Edward Elric. In the first image, he’s with his little brother Al who is in the suit of armor. In the second image, he’s in the middle of a battle against a beast created from a transmutation circle. This second image looks like a shot that we saw in the teaser trailer for the film that was released last month.
In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor. Equipped with mechanical “auto-mail” limbs, Edward becomes a state alchemist, seeking the one thing that can restore his and his brother's bodies...the legendary Philosopher's Stone.
The images come from an official website for the film launched by Warner Bros. The site also announced that a large-scale exhibition for the franchise will be held this fall.
When previously talking about this film adaptation and its faithfulness to the original source material, director Fumihiko Sori (Ping Pong) said:
"I want to create a style that follows the original manga as much as possible. The cast is entirely Japanese, but the cultural background is Europe. However, it's a style that doesn't represent a specific race or country. There will never be a scene in which a character says something that would identify him/her as Japanese."
The movie will be released in Japan in winter of 2017. I’m sure it will eventually make its way to the U.S. but we don’t exactly know when.
If you stayed to watch the post-credits scene in Doctor Strange, then you know that Thor pays a visit to him asking for his help. Well, it looks like Doctor Strange may play a much bigger role in the film than expected. The official Disney D23 site recently posted an article that offers some insight on what that might be:
“Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.”
According to that, it sounds like we'll be seeing Doctor Strange fighting alongside Thor and Hulk in the story! I have no idea how big of a role Benedict Cumberbatch's Strange will have in the film, but I didn't expect to see him get into some intergalactic battles with Thor and Hulk! That's going to be awesome... if it's true.
I hope this turns out to be true because it could be pretty damn epic. This isn't an official description, but it sounds like maybe they have some knowledge about Strange in the film that the rest of us don't have. You can't just put Strange's name next to Thor and Hulk and not expect fans to get excited!
To read through some recently released story details click here, and for some of the other details on the film and what we will see from it, make sure to click here. Thor: Ragnarok arrives in theaters November 3rd, 2017. The movie stars Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, and Sam Neill.
Last week a very rough sounding piece of audio of Emma Watson as Belle singing “Something There” popped up online. The audio for that came from a toy at Toys ‘R Us. Well, Disney decided to release a much better and clearer version of that song sung by Watson, and it’s definitely a much better and more impressive sample. Watson is going to do just fine performing the music in the film. I imagine that sometime soon Disney will release another trailer featuring many of the other songs such by certain characters in the film, so stay tuned for that! I also included two new TV spots for the film that contain some amusing new footage for you to enjoy!
Beauty and the Beast hits theaters on March 17th, and it's sure to end up being a mega-hit for Disney!
Ridley Scott has never really come across as a director who would want to make a superhero movie. Over the years he's been offered plenty of opportunities to direct a superhero film, but in a recent interview with Digital Spy, he explained why he's never taken the opportunity:
"Superhero movies are not my kind of thing - that's why I've never really done one. [I've been asked] several times, but I can't believe in the thin, gossamer tight-rope of the non-reality of the situation of the superhero."
He then went on to use Blade Runner as an example of comic book type movie that he's done, explaining:
"I've done that kind of movie - Blade Runner really is a comic strip when you think about it, it's a dark story told in an unreal world. You could almost put Batman or Superman in that world, that atmosphere, except I'd have a f**king good story, as opposed to no story!"
Well, I'm sure fans would love to see another Superman or Batman film is a "F**king good story"! The director goes on to express his concern about the current state and future of the film industry saying he thinks that "cinema mainly is pretty bad". He then said:
"I want to keep doing cinema and I hope it doesn't affect those of us who still keep making smart films. I'm hoping it doesn't affect me."
I seriously doubt that legendary filmmakers like Scott will be able to make their films until they retire because they are trusted filmmakers who have a proven record of making great movies.
