Zack Snyder Releases An Official Version of Batman V Superman Trailer

Just like how he released an official photo of the Batmobile last year, Director Zack Snyder has released the official teaser trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. He calls it the “not blurry, not pirated” version, which is a shot towards whoever recorded that leaked version with a camera phone.

The trailer opens with a wide shot of Metropolis, which looks to have been rebuilt after the destructive battle between Superman and General Zod. The voice overs come from the citizens who express different views on Superman and what his existence means for their society. In the middle of the all the people voicing their opinions is the voice of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). “We know better now, don’t we? Devils don’t come from the hell beneath, no they come from the sky“. That line tells me that Luthor is out to turn the people (and maybe Batman?) against this praised superhero. The trailer hints that as it zooms in on the statue of Superman and reveals the words “false god“.

From there we get a voice over of Bruce Wayne’s butler and friend, Alfred (Jeremy Irons), along with our first look at an aged Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) who is tempted to come out of retirement. Alfred is a man who knows and understands Wayne, as demonstrated through his words as Wayne looks at his batsuit. “That’s how it starts. The fever. The rage. The feeling of powerlessness that turns good men… cruel.” I tell ya, this make me really excited to see the relationship between these two at this stage of Wayne’s life, and also the chemistry between Affleck and Irons.

The trailer then puts a heavy focus on Batman, who does in fact come out of retirement to put Superman in his place. This version of the caped crusader is inspired from the Frank Miller comics and is what I would expect as far as age, having a menacing presence, not to mention his size. This Batman looks HUGE, and unlike any of the others we’ve seen before. Then we get just an incredible line from Batman that foreshadows what’s to come in this film. “Do you bleed? You will.”

This was an awesome first teaser trailer for a film which had everyone excited since it was announced two Comic Cons ago. Now this being a first teaser, we still haven’t gotten our first look at many things, including seeing how Eisenberg delivers as Lex Luthor. I thought it was a good idea though to focus on Batman and Superman. It lets people know this film will be big, as these two will be in the same film together, for the first time.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE is in theaters March 25, 2016.

War Machine & Falcon Are Present For Avengers: Age Of Ultron

I know what you’re thinking, “Why is Marvel dropping so many TV Spots, clips, and photos for Avengers: Age of Ultron, when the film is right around the corner“? I asked that question myself and came up with an answer question like “why not“. If your a studio, why not market the hell out of your biggest movie to date that will have so many effects on the M.C.U going forward?

See Marvel knows they have our money, but they want to reach out to everyone else who may not find these films interesting for whatever reasons. Anyways, some new photos and a TV clip released for Age of Ultron confirming the appearance of two characters, Falcon and War Machine.

Look forward to fighting you in Civil War

I… love it! Falcon (Anthony Mackie) turned out to be an excellent addition in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and I was hoping his role would expand into the Avengers films sooner than later. We previously seen James Rhodey aka War Machine (Don Cheadle) in trailers and photos. What we didn’t know is if he would suit up and fight along side the Avengers at some point. I’m glad he gets to as I’m sure the team would need help against Ultron and his army. All I ask Marvel is you do not kill them off (yet), because these guys are just too awesome.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is two weeks away from its release! (May 1st)

Batman V Superman Trailer Has Leaked

Well what a surprise, the highly anticipated trailer for Batman V Superman has leaked. The leaked video comes from a camera phone, and the trailer has Spanish subtitles. Its not the best quality, but it does give the first look at several things including Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, and a voice over for Jeremy Irons as Alfred and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor. Warner Bros. has reportedly taken down the trailer on Youtube, but its still popping up everywhere else. They should probably put it up soon.

I’ll wait for the official trailer to release to do an analysis and speculation. For now, its a very dark and intense trailer and it looks awesome! Check it out in the link below.

“Wanted 2″ Is Very Close To Happening

6077103593_8876f4712b_b

I really enjoyed 2008 Action/Thriller, Wanted. The movie had an excellent cast, really impressive visual effects, and a good story. Its one of those films where I wonder why a sequel hasn’t been made? The answer is that Universal is waiting for the right story before moving forward, according to a quote back in 2013 from Wanted star James McAvoy.

Its a smart move by the studio, however, the director of WantedTimur Bekmambetov has in fact revealed (via. Collider) that a story has been created for sometime now. So what the heck is Universal waiting for?

For my part I already have the concept of the new story. I have all the screenwriters and co-producers on board. I’ve seen that some websites have even posted the posters of Wanted 2! I think there are a lot of people waiting for the second part of the story we’ve made in 2008.

So what’s the hold up?

Unfortunately, Universal is still thinking about the possible dates of the pre-production start. I know that the movie should be released, but it’s all up to Universal to decide when is it going to happen. The studio is still deciding.

Wanted

Okay, let me take a step back and look at the circumstances. The first film ended in a way to where if the story brings back Angelina Jolie‘s character (it does), they would have to find a clever way to bring her back from the dead. Also, the stars of the first film (McAvoy,Jolie) has both ascended in their careers in Hollywood. McAvoy has improved majorly as an actor, while Jolie has stepped away from blockbusters and more towards directing.

By Universal waiting for the right start date for pre-production for Wanted 2 might mean their trying to work around the busy schedules of Jolie and McAvoy. Assuming they would want to come back, McAvoy will work on X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), which is said to be his final take as Professor Xavier. Jolie is currently on the post production stage of her next directorial film, By The Sea which also stars Brad Pitt. Her next project is a drama about elephant population being saved in Africa.

I’m very interested in seeing a Wanted 2, with both stars returning. Jolie was such a badass and the gun fight sequences made it more entertaining. Hopefully, Universal will find a way to bring all together.

Avengers: Age of Ultron – First Cut, Run Time, Easter Eggs

Anytime I watch a Marvel film in theaters I’m usually left wanting more and wishing the movie was longer. Maybe that just me, but I find it as a testament of just how fun these movies are. Avengers: Age of Ultron is right around the corner from its release, and all the movie buzz is surrounding Marvel.

joss-whedon-soundbite

Director Joss Whedon was recently asked (Collider) how long the first cut for Age of Ultron is. His response was not one the interviewer anticipated…

About [3 hours, 15 minutes] which is where I thought it was going to end up.

When asked if he was being serious

No, the first one (Avengers) came in at three and we got it down to 2:15. This one came in at 3:15, and we got it down to 2:14.

Personally, I wouldn’t mind watching a 3 hour Avengers film, but when directors are busy editing and cutting the film they’ll find scenes or shots to take out that’ll make the end result better. Director Whedon also touched on the subject of Easter Eggs, which is something fans love to look for.

Yeah, there aren’t a ton of Easter eggs. It’s so hard for me to make a movie, especially this movie, I don’t spend a lot of time going, “You know what else would be hilarious?!” I’m more like, “Was the gun in the frame? Oh my God, I’m so tired.” I mean I would leave set every day and go home and write because it wasn’t quite right; it wasn’t quite finished. It needed to be better. So not a ton.

Chances are these Easter Eggs won’t be as obvious as they were in Captain America: The Winter Solider where someone just names off a bunch of things. I will probably miss many of them the first time, because i’ll be having too much fun watching the film.

Avengers: Age of Ultron  has a run time of 2 hours and 14 minutes, and comes out May 1st!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Releases A 2nd Teaser & More!

star-wars-7-force-awakens-trailer-screengrab-24-600x248

If you’re a Star Wars fan, whether average or die hard, you’re gonna find something to love about this new teaser trailer. Part of what makes me so excited in seeing the continuation of the Star Wars saga (post Return of the Jedi) is the return of the original cast. We finally got our first look at some of the original cast members, specifically Han Solo and Chewbacca. Let me just saying, its great to see them back in a Star Wars movie again. Oh yeah, the voice over was in fact Luke Skywalker, in case you weren’t sure.

This being a teaser trailer, it doesn’t feature a definitive/confirmed plot line for The Force Awakens, which is fine the movie is still more than 8 months away. What we know is that the film takes place 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi. The trailer had shots that symbolized this from the crashed Imperial Star Destroyer in the background of the opening shot, to Darth Vader’s burned helmet.Of course if you missed those, you have to at least noticed that Han Solo has in fact aged.

This trailer once again puts the focus on the new cast members John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Oscar Isaac. All three were in attendance for a Q&A during the Star Wars Celebration where the teaser trailer debuted. During their interviews, each cast member talked about their characters.

  • Daisy Ridley described her character, Rey as a scavenger in a ship graveyard who flys solo on the planet of Jakku. What I find interesting is the rumor that she’s the offspring of a character from the original trilogy, hence why she’s in hiding.
  • John Boyega revealed that his character, Finn is in fact a stormtrooper, to which Director Abrams nodded in disapproval. He also described his character as being in danger on the planet of Jakku, where he encounters Rey (Ridley).
  • Oscar Issac called his character, Poe Dameron the best friggin X-Wing fighter in the galaxy. He mentions his character gets sent on an important mission by a certain princess, where he later crosses paths with Finn.

I gotta assume that at some point all three character meet and team up.

Finally, the trailer shows off some of the villains for The Force Awakens. I haven’t seen a more dangerous looking sith in Kylo Ren since… Darth Maul back in The Phantom Menace. Speculation is still running wild as far as who’s playing the character, but my money is on Adam Driver. Then there’s the stormtrooper who’s armor is layered with chrome. He definitely stands out from the rest and someone I’m looking to learn more about.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens also stars Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis,Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Anders, Warwick Davis, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, and Max von Sydow.

Check out the trailer below.

Batman V Superman Teaser Trailer’s Teaser (IMAX)

Its coming!

Director Zack Snyder tweeted a teaser trailer for the first Batman V Superman trailer. Warner Bros is not playing around, in fact they are holding special screening events at select IMAX theaters for the trailer debut. Snyder himself will make an appearance and an introduction at each event, so space is limited.

This teaser shows off both iconic suits, which honestly could be all that’s needed to market this film. I’m serious, you don’t get any bigger than Batman and Superman in a film together. Its expected the trailer will drop shortly after its IMAX debut, and I will be all over that. So stay posted.
