Trailer for Captain America Winter Soldier gives us the Cap we missed from The Avengers

Marvel's CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLIDER - Teaser Poster

I enjoyed the first Captain America movie, so I wasn’t really looking forward to or lamented, the return of Captain America, but I was bummed he had such a shitty showing in The Avengers. His slow build could be a good thing, down the road, but slow doesn’t always mean careful, but they do seem to be taking their time with his storyline, but enough of this this babbling. I thoroughly enjoyed this new trailer for Captain America: Winter Soldier, not because I could name off all the new characters being introduced to this franchise cause I can’t, but because it just looked good and seemingly better than the THOR sequel and I am sick of Samuel L. always being the good guy. I think he does asshole much better.

The film stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johanssen, Cobie Smulders, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L. Jackson. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens April 4, 2014.

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier.

Jurassic World is coming in 2015

jurassic-world-logo

I guess I should report on this since, everyone else is. I lost the fire for this franchise years ago, in fact everything after Spielberg’s Jurassic Park is a fucking blur to me. But on June 12, 2015 Universal “says” they are releasing the fourth installment…has it really been three films already? Fourth installment to the Jurassic Park Quadfecta (that’s not related to any Michael Crichton novel whatsoever) and it’ll be called Jurassic World.

Can you taste the sarcasm? Mmmmmmmmmm!

According to Collider.com the films release date comes after Disney pushed back the release of the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film “Dead Man Tell No Tales” ( a title that  should’ve been used for the first damn film…duh). Btw, the two are not related at all, but the date is important considering the slew of films being released that year.

The film currently has that release date all to itself, though Assassin’s Creed and Pixar’s Inside Out are scheduled for release the following weekend.

Director Colin Trevorrow is credited with penning the screenplay alongside Derek Connolly, which appears to suggest that his rewrites to Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver’s draft were significant.

2015 is going to be quite a fucking year for films if these proposed releases do indeed take place. Also slated that year (supposedly) are Avatar 2, Star Wars Episode VII, Man of Steel sequel [Superman-Batman], Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Adventures of Tintin 2, Independence Day sequel,Terminator sequel, Ant-Man, Warcraft and Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 2 !

Yeah…I know right?

Trailer for the Robocop reboot isn’t bad

robocop2014

Can I say how much I “don’t” have any clue how good this film will be, but the trailer isn’t half bad? This reboot is still an anomaly and in a way makes me and others, who’ve been blogging about this film, scratch their muther-effin heads. I don’t think anyone realized the direction they were going with this film.

I know you want to rush to watch this trailer, but it’s not what your expecting…believe me. Although interesting, I don’t know how well it will fair with today’s audiences both old and new. But I will say, I respect that they are trying to take the franchise in another direction. I can’t help, but feel that apart of me has seen this film before…and no, I’m not talking about the original Robocop.

Oh…and by the way….MICHAEL KEATON is in this!!!!!!!!

Robocop stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Kenneth Williams, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Michael Keaton, Aimee Garcia also star in the Jose Padilha-directed. Robocop arrives in theaters February 7, 2014

“In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilises their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.“

 

Red Band trailer for Spike Lee’s OLDBOY starring Josh Brolin and Samuel L. Jackson

oldboy-josh-brolin-slice

I’m still not convinced whether this should have been done, but it has and there ain’t nothing we can do about it. The Korean cult film OLDBOY has been redone by director Spike Lee and today we get to see the red band trailer for the film. It looks pretty true to the original, so esthetically it pleases me, but they sure as hell give a lot away in the trailer, course not the big surprise and those of you who’ve watched the original know what I’m talking about. But yes the whistles and bells are there. It should be promising.

The film stars Josh Brolin, Samuel L.Jackson, Elizabeth Olsen, Sharlto Copley, Lance Reddick, Michael Imperioli, and James Ransone. Oldboy opens on October 25th.

OLDBOY is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.

CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY THIS YEAR! BEHOLD!! PRODUCTION STILLS FROM QUENTIN TARANTINO’S NEW FILM “DJANGO UNCHAINED” STARRING JAMIE FOXX, CHRISTOPH WALTZ AND LEONARDO DICAPRIO

Received a pleasant surprise this morning in the form of these stills and Jamie Foxx interview about Django Unchained via@ Collider.com. I love QT have and always will. He is why I love independent films. This new project marks a slight departure from his usual scripts, but then he’s always pushing himself. The film stars Jamie Foxx (Ray, Unlawful Citizen) as an escaped slave who sets out to rescue his wife Kerry Washington (Ray,Last King Of Scotland) from a sadistic plantation owner Leonardo Dicaprio (Inception,J.Edgar). He enlist the help of a skilled bounty hunter Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Bastards,The Green Hornet) to help him…sound B film enough? LOVE IT!!!!

The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, M.C. Gainey, Garrett Dillahunt, Dennis Christopher, Gerald McRaney, Laura Cayouette, Don Johnson, Tom Saviniand Sacha Baron Cohen. Don Johnson?! This is text book Quentin to dig deep into the “where are they know?” rolodex  sitting on his desk next to his laptop and miniature Hitori Hanso sword and say to himself DON JOHNSON. This will probably be one of Don’s best performances too. I can’t fucking wait for this film!! Below are the stills from the film and you can checkout some of what Jamie had to say about the film and it’s characters at Collider.com.

Synopsis:

Set in the South two years before the Civil War, “Django Unchained” stars Academy Award®-winner Jamie Foxx as Django, a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Academy Award®-winner Christoph Waltz). Schultz is on the trail of the murderous Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty. The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive.

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing Broomhilda (Kerry Washington), the wife he lost to the slave trade long ago.

Django and Schultz’s search ultimately leads them to Calvin Candie (Academy Award®-nominee Leonardo DiCaprio), the proprietor of “Candyland,” an infamous plantation where slaves are groomed by trainer Ace Woody (Kurt Russell) to battle each other for sport. Exploring the compound under false pretenses, Django and Schultz arouse the suspicion of Stephen (Academy Award®-nominee Samuel L. Jackson), Candie’s trusted house slave. Their moves are marked, and a treacherous organization closes in on them. If Django and Schultz are to escape with Broomhilda, they must choose between independence and solidarity, between sacrifice and survival…

Written and directed by Academy Award®-winner Quentin Tarantino, DJANGO UNCHAINED is produced by Stacey Sher, Pilar Savone and Reginald Hudlin. Theexecutive producers are Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Michael Shamberg, Shannon McIntosh, and James Skotchdopole. DJANGO UNCHAINED will be released in the U.S. on December 25, 2012, and internationally by Sony Pictures Releasing International.
