In The News…

Let’s take a quick look at some of the news…

 

Michael Keaton Out?

Well, it looks like the talks with Michael Keaton to play the villain in Spiderman: Homecoming has stalled and it is now being reported that he is out. We’re kind of bummed because we thought he would make a great Vulture and it would also be cool to see him in a comic book movie.

 

Iron Man & Spidey

 

Robert Downey JR. will be reprising his role as Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man in Spiderman: Homecoming. According to the report, ‘Civil War’ establishes a relationship between Holland’s Spider-Man and Tony Stark, which will then lead into ‘Homecoming.’

 

Independence Day Resurgence

Fox has unveiled a full-length trailer trailer for “Independence Day: Resurgence” that shows us what Earth is like two decades after the alien invasion. The movie also introduces the new cast as well as some old faces. It’s a pretty epic trailer featuring global destruction on an insane level.

Directed by Roland Emmerich, the long-awaited sequel to his 1996 blockbuster finds that, in the 20 years after the invasion, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. However, nothing could prepare them for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

Take a look at the trailer below:

 

Opening June 24, “Independence Day: Resurgence” stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward.

 

Doctor Strange Retro Trailer

Doctor Strange will be making his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe this year, but this isn’t his first foray into the medium of film. In 1978, there was a Dr. Strange TV movie starring Peter Hooten in the lead role. The Mashup team known as Darth Blender decided to pair the new film’s first trailer (starring Benedict Cumberbatch) with the visuals of the pretty trippy original. The effects are dated, but they still pair well with the psychedelic nature that encompasses most of Doctor Strange’s world.

Basically this is for us comic book geeks and we are loving it!

Magnificent Seven

There are two people in this world who will be all over this movie. Papa SeppinRek and Bumpa SeppinRek. Yes, friends, our father and grandfather are huge western movie fans and we have to say this movie looks pretty fun from the trailer.

It has Chris Pratt, so you know we’re on board.

 

Official Synopsis:

Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ and Columbia Pictures’ The Magnificent Seven.

As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
