The new Rogue One – A Star Wars Story trailer looks good and it definitely has less of a’low budget‘ feel compared to the teaser released back in April…

I’m thinking that the much reported about re-shoots helped do the trick.

Rogue One – A Star Wars Story Release Dates: December 16th, 2016 (US, UK, GER)…

Based on the hit children’s TV series and directed by Dean Israelite, Power Rangers stars Elizabeth Banks, Bill Hader and Bryan Cranston. The actual  Power Rangers are played by Ludi Lin (The Black Ranger), RJ Cyler (The Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott (The Pink Ranger), Becky G (The Yellow Ranger) and Dacre Montgomery (The Red ranger). They are a group of are high school students infused with superpowers that they must harness to save the world…

I used to watch the TV series growing up. Something – namely the trailer plus the high number of super hero movies in recent years and my current feelings about the phenomenon (boredom) tells me that I should probably leave this movie to the die-hard fans and the young people who are still  into the TV series. I haven’t quite fully decided just yet.

Power Rangers Movie Release Dates: March 23rd, 2017 (GER); March 24th, 2017 (US & UK)…

A DOG’S PURPOSE (2017): New Trailer From Josh Gad, Dennis Quaid, Britt Robertson…

A Dog’s Purpose is the latest movie starring Dennis Quaid,  Britt Robertson and Josh Gad. Directed by Lasse Hallsström, we get to tag along on a dog’s quest to find it’s purpose over several lifetimes…

Unless something goes horribly wrong, this movie is going to be a great success – largely on account of the subject matter and sheer number of dog lovers out there. I’ll watch because Gad is great. I’m actually surprised that I didn’t realise he’s the man behind the voice of ‘Bailey Bailey Bailey’ until I read it. I just loved his voice work in The Angry Birds Movie (2016).

Will dog ownership rise after this movie? I think yes.

A Dog’s Purpose Release Dates: January 27th, 2017 (US & UK)…

GUARDIANS (2017): New Trailer For Russian Superhero Movie

So far, most if not all superhero movies I’ve seen have originated from the US. Directed by Sarik Andreasyan, Guardians is a Russian addition to the genre and the following trailer has me quite intrigued…

Generally speaking, I’ve grown fatigued of the superhero movie genre. However I want to know just how different this will be compared to the American superhero movies I’m used to.

So far, Guardians looks like a cross between X-Men and The AvengersPerhaps any difference won’t matter so much, as long as the movie is good – because either way, true fans of the genre are going to have a good time.

The main characters are played by Sanzhar Madiyev, Alina Lanina, Valeriya Shkirando,  Anton Pampushnyy and Sebastien Sisak.

Guardians Release Date: February 23rd, 2017 (RUS)…

KONG – SKULL ISLAND (2017): New Trailer From Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman…

Kong – Skull Island is the latest from Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John Goodman. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, it’s an  action adventure story focused on the origins of King Kong…

Was I ready and in need of another King Kong movie. No. But that doesn’t mean it won’t be just what I need by the time it’s released. Also, I’m definitely not at peace with the idea that humans are going to Skull Island, Kong’s home to capture and hurt him. Though, at least in this instance one can say, it’s just a movie.

The cinematography and dynamic between Hiddleston / Larson, plus Jackson / Goodman are very interesting. The movie also stars Corey Hawkins, John C. Reilly, Jason Mitchell and Toby Kebbell.

Kong – Skull Island Release Dates: March 10th, 2017 (US & UK); March 9th, 2017 (GER)…

WONDER WOMAN (2017): New Trailer Starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of Wonder Woman (2017).

I hadn’t really paid much attention to many of the Wonder Woman news headlines ever since it was announced that Gal Gadot had won the role. Hearing about the resultant backlash concerning her casting only worked to make me impatient for the day when she hopefully gets to silence all her critics with a brilliant performance…

Trailer 1 (Comic-Con)

Trailer 2

I like the Comic-Con trailer more than I do the one for Justice League (2017) – a trailer that was also released on the same day.

The music, visuals and general ‘badassery’ just speaks to me more. Though not just because the Amazon princess and I are both young ladies.

It crossed my mind that Wonder Woman is kind of a female Captain America. I say this initially because of the shield. I’m sure there are probably other reasons but I’m completely new to this story so I’d just be guessing. Lastly, I’d love for this Patty Jenkins directed film to be as powerful in its ability to silence the critics of Gadot as Casino Royale (2006) was for critics of Daniel Craig’s casting as James Bond.

Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen and Robin Wright also star.

Wonder Woman Release Dates: June 2nd, 2017 (US & UK); June 7th, 2017 (FR);  June 15th, 2017 (GER)…

JUSTICE LEAGUE (2017): New Trailer Starring Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller…

There’s more evidence that the comic book film domination of Hollywood is continuing to go from strength to strength. Reason being, we have a trailer for DC Comics’ Justice League, a movie that we can all guess will have sequel upon sequel to follow should this one do well at the box office.  With Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ben Affleck as Batman and Jason Momoa playing  Aquaman, even though I’m not the biggest fan of comic book movies by this point, I find myself a little curious…

I’m mostly interested because I want to see how Justice League will differ from Marvel Studios’ Avengers. As far as I can see, both films are about super heroes coming together to save humanity. I’d love to be pleasantly surprised by this movie’s execution.

As for my thoughts on the above teaser trailer, it didn’t have me slapping the wall with excitement and yelping with joy as I’m known to do when blessed with a thrilling tease of a trailer. Likely controversial, but I find this one just OK.

I’ll of course wait and see before daring to declare something along the lines of ‘Marvel does it better’.

Directed by Zack Snyder; Ezra Miller, Ray fisher, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jared Leto, J.K. Simmons and Jeremy Irons also star.

Justice League Release Dates: November 17th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Starring Emma Watson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor and Dan Stevens, 2017 is the year for another live action movie version of a classic Disney fairytale. This time it’s Beauty & The Beast…

I already love the music and visuals in this beautiful tease of  trailer. I also wouldn’t mind staying in that palace for a day or many. Preferably many, many day.

Beauty & The Beast Release Dates: March 17th, 2016 (US & UK); March 29th (FR)…
