This weekend, New York City Comic-Con has come bearing gifts for Power Rangers fans. As if the brand new character posters released on Friday weren’t enough, LionsGate has also given us our first theatrical trailer for the movie, giving us some background on the assembly of the current Power Rangers team — and one quick look at Elizabeth Banks’ Rita Repulsa as well.
Few things in life are as exciting as a new Tom Cruise action movie. We’ve all read articles declaring Cruise as the last true American movie star or marveling at his physicality even into his fifties, but even those pieces sometimes overlook the sheer pleasure of watching Cruise at work in any new Jack Reacher or Mission: Impossible movie. Five minutes of any basic cable police procedural should be enough to remind you that not every actor who holds a gun actually looks the part; actors like Tom Cruise and Keanu Reeves are on a level entirely their own.
I’m sure there’s a point at which movies like Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow will lose their appeal to me, but that day is not today. A story that centers on a character forced relive a certain period of time — to repeat his or her actions until they get them just right — might be seeing an uptick in popularity due to video games, but how many times have wanted to have a moment of our day back so we could do it again? So this first trailer for Netflix’s upcoming film Arq pushes all the right buttons for me as both a fan of science-fiction and a fan of, you know, obsessing over moments of my life.
Michael Bay is a simple guy. He likes lots of explosions, frequent cutting, and keeping the audience as close to the action as humanly possible. So when digital camera company RED approached the director about designing his own promotional rig, of course it would be handheld, and of course it would be named “Bayhem”. What’s the point in being one of the world’s leading experts in cinematic destruction if you can’t have a little fun with yourself every now and then?
“I am Groot.” With the exception of one small variation, this is the only thing we hear from Vin Diesel’s Groot throughout Guardians of the Galaxy. What makes this such a funny running joke isn’t the fact that he only says the one phrase, though; it’s the fact that Rocket Raccoon understands him perfectly, unearthing complicated sentiments and emotions from three simple words. Translating Groot’s dialogue would be like un-bleeping the profanity in an episode of South Park: you pretty much already know what Groot is saying, and the jokes just work better this way.
It’s been twelve years since Japanese film studio Toho released its last Godzilla movie, the longest gap between films dating back the first Godzilla movie in 1954. And while Japanese audiences have always loved their kaijū (“strange monsters”) movies, the fact that international audiences are starting to develop a taste for giant monsters has set the stage for Toho to bring back their most famous creation in the 2016 blockbuster Shin Godzilla.
Critics of the DC Cinematic Universe have often pointed out that Warner Bros. has tried to crawl before they can walk, choosing to stuff their movies with as many recognizable villains and superheroes as possible instead of slowly ramping up their exposure for movie fans. And while I am certainly not as pessimistic about the future of the DCU as others, I will agree that Warner Bros. too often seems to include three or more characters when one or two would suffice. So it’s not particularly surprising to hear a rumor that the standalone Flash movie will feature — you guessed it — as many villains as possib
If you’re anything like me, it’s probably been a while since you were really excited for a Tim Burton movie. While movies like Big Eyes, Dark Shadows, and Alice in Wonderland all did either OK with critics or at the box office, Burton has made too many wonderful movies in his career for “OK” to feel like anything other than a disappointment. Thankfully, Burton seems to be back on track with Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, a YA adaptation that brings together the conflict of the X-Men with the sense of childish wonder that only Burton can bring to bear.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: whenever you need to cast someone as a giant floating face planet, get Kurt Russell. Russell has long been one of our most self-deprecating movie stars, an immensely talented actor with movie star looks who, for some wonderful reason, always preferred to play the buffoon over the action hero. Movies like Big Trouble in Little China and even the more recent The Hateful Eight reveal that Russell is never happier than when making fun of his movie star persona.
Movies like Ghost in the Shell are what make me glad I’m not a box office prognosticator. On the one hand, the movie is a blockbuster adaptation of the popular Japanese manga that stars one of the most bankable international movie stars; on the other hand, we’re still six-plus months away from the film’s release date and it has already generated more negative publicity than an entire season’s worth of summer movies. Good luck figuring out those leading indicators, experts!
Despite huge numbers in China, the future of the Warcraft franchise may hinge on how well it does on Blu-ray and DVD. To that end, Legendary Entertainment has started teasing the September 27 release date of the Warcraft Blu-ray with some new deleted scenes and special features. Clips like the one above also tease some of the extra footage that director Duncan Jones shot — and was forced to cut — during the Warcraft production process.
Pixar may get most of the headlines, but fans of slightly more off-beat animation have always loved the movies released by Laika Studios. With a list of movies that includes Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls, Laika has a string of critical hits that focus on the supernatural and magic experience of growing up. And while Kubo and the Two Strings brings their movies to unprecedented heights — our own review called it the best Laika movie yet — a new interview with director and Laika CEO Travis Knight made it clear we shouldn’t expect to see any sequels anytime soon.
