The new Avengers – Infinity War trailer is finally here and it’s oh, so thrilling.
Directed by brothers Anthony and Joe Russo; the stars of this next outing from Marvel Studios include Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Brie Larson, Chris Evans, Chris Pratt…
I’m in to see how well this movie comes together considering the exceptionally high number of key Marvel characters. I’m also curious since I wasn’t completely in love with Avengers – Age Of Ultron (2015).
Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen, Vin Diesel, Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson also star.
At the heart of Gifted, the latest movie starring Chris Evans, Octavia Spencer and Jenny Slate is a custody battle over a child prodigy played by Mckenna Grace…
I’m intrigued by this one, though certainly not as much as I would be had the trailer not been a mere whisker from being a short film. Actually, scrap that. This is a ‘short film’, a.k.a., a lazy **s, far too long 2:34 minutes that substitutes a genuinely interesting and creative tease for a ‘show everything but the credits’ sad excuse for a trailer.
There. Now that my true feelings are out, should you want to see the much longer version, you can – in approximately six months from now. I may, I may not.
A second trailer for directing brothers Joe and Anthony Russo has landed for the 2016 instalment of Marvel’s Captain America…
I like the first trailer more than the second, thanks to the music and the circumstances of the the characters involved. I’ll watch Captain America Civil War for this reason, as well as another chance to see Chris Evans’ portrayal the rather admirable Steve Rogers.
This instalment of the franchise doesn’t seem to be about saving the world but more about Captain America’s relationship with his childhood friend, Bucky Barnes/ The Winter Soldier and how that effects others including Robert Downey Junior’s Iron Man.
Beyond the above, my personal level of excitement when it comes to superhero movies has definitely dwindled over time. That’s what happens in most instances when you’re fed the same kind of thing repeatedly and with minimal respite. At this time I find myself actually looking forward to the time when this particular series of the Captain America Story is wrapped up. I had to say it.
I’m not a comic book reader myself, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed The Avengers, back in 2012.
The main reason I was excited after seeing the trailer – for the sequel isJames Spader’s Ultron voice and dialogue. When I did finally watch the movie, I found myself selfishly wanting more screen time for Ultron. He just seemed a lot more interesting than all the other characters; perhaps in part because he’s new to me.
As for how I feel about the film overall, director Joss Whedon hasn’t delivered a bad movie. It just felt slow in parts and I found the dialogue about Thor’s hammer at the rather awkward party to be repetitive. Additionally, I’m also just bored of the film’s heroes and tired of the same ‘the world needs saving’ dramatics.
Besides the film’s villain Ultron – during the short periods he was actually on screen, I did enjoy Mark Ruffalo’s portrayal of The Incredible Hulk and the main fight scene between Hulk and Ultron. Beyond that however, saying that I found the movie’s trailer more thrilling than the finished film is unfortunately, more true than not.
The fact is, it may actually be time for me to leave Avengers to the serious fans who really love the comic books. I say this because it’s unlikely that superhero movie fatigue will ever be a real thing for them. Tuning in to a brand new Avengers movie, for me, will likely be about the hope of seeing a seriously badass scene; like the lift sequence in Captain America: A Winter Soldier (2014) and the majorly thrilling vehicular pursuit of Nick Fury that followed in the same movie. .
Watch Avengers – Age of Ultron if you really must and to enjoy the above mentioned highlights.
Starring Chris Evans, an Actor best known for his role as Marvel’s Captain America and British Actress Alice Eve, Before We Go is a drama / romance about two people that meet on the subway in New York City.
Something reminiscent of Richard Linklater’s brilliant film, Before Sunrise (2004) is what I’m thinking after watching the trailer. As such, I look forward to seeing how this particular story unfolds. Even more so because this is Evans’ directorial debut.
