All the while we thought that Matt Damon was the end all be all of the Bourne franchise, oh were we wrong. Looks like Jeremy Renner is ready to pick up where Damon left off and there are no plans of slowing down. In the upcoming fourth installment of the Bourne series, it looks as if the Tredstone conspiracy has widened and all hell is breaking loose. The excessive shaky cameras are gone and the action is more visceral than in the previous outings. Check out the trailer after the jump.
When the initial news hit the internet that Sony would no long keep the money train going with Sam Raimi but instead reboot the Spider-Man movie series fan boys went ballistic! If we were in Victorian times I pretty sure they would rolled out the guillotine at the time. As time went on and a director and star were chosen the madness escalated and it appeared that fans had forgotten about the flaws of the Raimi films. Were we so clouded by our sheer hatred for change that we couldn’t even give these new guys a chance? “Its to soon,” was the battle cry of the anti-Spidey-reboot brigade. However, at the same time they enjoyed in mass the reboot of Batman by Christopher Nolan. Why wasn’t it too soon for that franchise to get a reboot? The difference between reboot time frames was only 3 years, surely not enough for the internet fan boys to lose their collective minds over, right?
Here is a brand new trailer for G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Everything that we have seen so far has been pretty fantastic. This movie needs to be as far over the top as humanly possible. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean nanobots over the top just insane action and ninja on ninja battles. So far, all the character images have lived up to what I am hoping is a stellar summer blockbuster popcorn movie. Check out the latest trailer, and let us know what you think in the comments.
Growing up as a young nerd I had many staples in my movie catalog. So many of these staples included Arnold Schwarzenegger kicking ass as a mercenary, kindergarten teacher, or game show contestant. However, there was one that really stood out. In 1990, Total Recall was released and I immediately loved it. From the scene where Arnold is removing the tracking beacon to the woman with three boobs this movie had it all.
Synopsis: In a kingdom ruled by tyranny, the vain and selfish Queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) learns her stepdaughter Snow White (Kristen Stewart) is destined to surpass her as not only the “Fairest One of All” but the kingdom’s future ruler. But the Queen then learns from her Magic Mirror (Christopher Obi) that the only way to remain in power is to consume Snow White’s heart and achieve immortality. Snow escapes into the Dark Forest and Ravenna recruits the Huntsman Eric (Chris Hemsworth) to kill Snow. Eric, however, takes pity on the young princess and teaches Snow White the art of war. Now, with the aid of seven dwarves and Prince William (Sam Claflin), Snow White begins a rebellion to bring down her stepmother once and for all.
In 1987 when the original 21 Jump Street was first brought to television we received a great procedural police drama series with young and upcoming stars. In 2012, we revisit the franchise but this time with crude comedy. On the surface, the remake of 21 Jump Street seems like the most ludicrous idea proposed by Hollywood in some time. However, with Jonah Hill and Michael Bacall writing we get a fresh take or an old property.
Where jingoism and realistic military action meet we find Act of Valor. The plot of the movie is very basic, arguably cliché. We are to follow a group of highly trained Navy Seals around the world as they try to foil the efforts of a terrorist group focused on performing a heinous act on American soil. However, Act of Valor has a different hook to get your butt in the seats. That hook is the fact that all the Navy Seals that you see in the film are real active duty guys. They are, in reality, badasses. Trained to kick ass and take names in God forsaken places around the globe.
