Geostorm is the latest sci-fi / disaster movie starring Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Eugenio Derbez and some super expensive special effects. Directed byDean Devlin, the story centres around a climate controlling satellite that needs to be stopped from creating one of the biggest storms the world has ever seen…
I’m going to be honest, I’m tuning in mainly for the special effects. Everything else will just be a bonus. As such, may the effects please be as thrilling as they are in San Andreas (2015).
Kathryn Winnick, Alexandra Maria Lara and Gregory Alan Williams also star.
Starring Ben Winchell, Maria Bello and Andy Garcia, Max Steel is the new action/adventure/sci-fi movie centred around the adventures of teenager Max McGrath and his alien companion, Steel.
Directed by Stewart Hendler, based on the story by Christopher Yost and with no direct connection to Marvel Studios or DC Comics, what we have here is a new superhero movie. One where Max and Steel must combine their extraordinary abilities to work together against some dark forces and… as if you hadn’t already guessed. Save the world.
Max Steel seems to have some notable differences when compared to other superhero movies – something which at this point in the superhero domination of Hollywood, is definitely a good thing.
Whether the differences prove enough to hold serious interest for those already fatigued by this genre depends on the execution of this story. I already know right now that Steel is my favourite character.
I’m also happy to see that this new trailer edit is a definite improvement on the international version of the trailer that I chose to ignore a few days ago.
I want to say that ‘here you have it, the first Ghostbusters trailer has finally landed!’ But as you’ll soon see…
It’s not all bad. The music works with the visuals. In fact, it’s really exciting at first because you think it’s leading to a moment of revelation. Only there is sadly, no revelation.
Pointless is a word that comes to mind for this teaser to a teaser trailer. I’m still excited about this reboot because it stars three great ladies of comedy; Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon. The director, Paul Feig is the man behind Bridesmaids (2011) and most recently the very entertaining Spy (2015) so on hope lives!
One of the best executions of a teaser teaser trailer I’ve ever seen is for Deadpool (2016).
In just over two weeks (March 3rd 2016), we’ll have the next Ghostbusters trailer. All I have to say is, may it be good enough to make up for the above, dare I say, nonsense. Chris Hemsworth, Michael Kenneth Williams and Andy Garcia also star.
