Starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg and Gal Gadot as Wonder woman, the DC Comics’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie trailers look good…
Intense, interesting are two words that come to mind. I’ll be watching for reasons including the seemingly promising dialogue. Though, I do wonder how much longer it’s going to be before comic book movie fatigue sets in on a large scale, if it does. Either way, right now it’s the fans who really, REALLY love these stories that I’m most excited for.
Perhaps Wonder woman will get the two superheroes to work together. Quite likely.
Whilst in the mood for a good comedy this week, I opted for a buddy cop classic.
Starring Chris Tucker, Jackie Chan and directed by Brett Ratner, Rush Hour 2 (2001) is one of my absolute favourites.
The first instalment, Rush Hour (1998) is of course great, but I love Rush Hour 2 more. Not just for the reason that it has the following clip which contains the only instance of Karaoke I have ever been able to enjoy, but because it really is good. Particularly as this time, unlike in the first movie, Jackie Chan’s Lee character cracks a few jokes of his own.
The reason why the karaoke scene above works so well – besides Tucker’s comedic excellence is the fact that the guy ‘singing’ beforehand seems to believe that he’s actually doing a great job; when clearly that couldn’t be more incorrect. Featuring a Michael Jackson classic ‘Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough’ certainly doesn’t hurt the scene either.
If you haven’t already and or the above clip has convinced you, watch Rush Hour 2 because it’s funny. But be sure to remember that it’s best to start with 1998’s Rush Hour first.
Roselyn Sanchez and Ziyi Zhang are also among the key cast.
How did I not feature the Fantastic Four trailer sooner? Slight super hero movie fatigue perhaps.
Whatever the answer, I’m doing it now because it is rather well done. My favourite moment being when Reed Richards/ Mr. Fantastic looks up and down to his right. Isn’t slow motion a beautiful thing?
With some of the most talented Actors of young Hollywood, Fantastic Four is an interesting super hero movie about, you guessed it, saving humanity. This new reboot is directed by Josh Trank and stars Miles Teller, Michael B Jordan, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell.
I’ll be ready come the August (2015) release date.
As unsettling as the idea behind London Has Fallen (2016) may be, the new movie directed by Babak Najafi and starringGerard Butler, Morgan Freeman, Aaron Eckhart and Charlotte Riley looks like it’s going to be quite the spectacle.
The imagery of London actually falling is certainly horrific, but I still couldn’t help yelping with joy at the excellent execution of this teaser trailer.
Talk about haunting trailer music…
I guess it’s time to plan the viewing of the first instalment, Olympus Has Fallen (2013). Probably and quite likely.
Fast forward to 2015 and the release of his latest movie The Man From U.N.C.L.E. will soon be upon us. There’s plenty going on in the trailer and I for one am quite intrigued.
Starring Henry Cavill (a.k.a. Superman), Alicia Vikander, Armie Hammer, Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Debicki, I’m going to trust in Ritchie’s track record of great style, storytelling and witty dialogue here.
Nevertheless, just to be safe, I’ll have my fingers crossed in hopes of an absence of dodgy accents.
The new film from Ridley Scott, director of many hit films including Gladiator (2000) stars Matt Damon and looks amazing.
As excited as I undoubtedly am, something tells me I’m probably going to get my heart broken, and by that I don’t mean I’ll be disappointed but that something similar to the end of 1998’s Armageddon might happen.
I’d of course much rather be pleasantly surprised than have that particular theory come to fruition.
Then again, on the other hand, whatever it takes for the film to be great is what I really, really want.
