Trailer Frenzy (Take 2)

It seems like were getting more and more trailers than usual for movies we are dying to see, Transformers, X-Men Days of Future Past, Maleficent, The Fault in our Stars and some new one as well like Cinderella, Mockingjay and Interstellar. This are some of movie announcements that happened this week.

 

1. Cinderella

Earlier this week I wrote a post about fairy tales turning into live-action motion picture and recently Disney released a teaser trailer for Cinderella and I feel like I beat every one to it, even Disney. For more live-action fairy tales check out my post Fairy Tales are Forever. The trailer wasn’t anything to get excited about and I don’t think Disney that is why they released it. I think they release it so people know that a Cinderella movie is being made, isn’t that the purpose of a teaser trailer. The trailer isn’t much just the famous glass slipper and a butterfly. The shoe looks extremely uncomfortable and it wasn’t what I expected it to look like. The trailer has been getting mixed comments but I can’t wait until 2016.

 

2. Interstellar

We got our first official trailer of Christopher Nolan highly anticipated film Interstellar, and it’s the first movie trailer I’ve seen this year that gave me chills. We get a better look at what the movie -Interstellar- is all about, A space travel story about a group of astronaut trying to find an inhabitable planet to replace Earth because Earth is on the brink of extinction. It was written by Christopher and Johnathon Nolan and it based on the theories of Kip Throne. From Nolan’s previous movies I know we are going to have our minds blown by his visual effect and it’s definitely going to be his most visually stunning movie to date. Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughnhey, Jessica Chastian, Anne Hathaway, and Michael  Caine, among others stars so the acting is going to be phenomenal. Do I hear Oscar bells? Best Score, Best Cinematography, Best Director even, too early to tell but very promising.

 

3. X-Men: Days of Future Past

X-Men: Days of Future Past has released a lot of clip showcasing  their new and returning mutants such as Blink, QuickSliver Shadowcat, Mystique, Wolverine, Beast, Storm, Magento. My favorite is, all of them, each time I watch the trailers I hope that it doesn’t have to end. I’m on the edge with X-Men and I cant wait to see it.

 

5. Guardian of the Galaxy

Another Marvel movie made headline this week, when Guardian of the Galaxy release a second teaser trailer, I’ve only seen it once and I’m not completely sold on this movie as yet. I can tell that this movie is going to have a different tone and attitude than other Marvel’s movie, it’s more on the humorous side. The Guardians include Star-Lord, Groot, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, and Drax the destroyer, the guardians are alien from the 31st century who travel back in time to enlist the help to battle the Baboon, an evil alien race that attempts to conquer Earth’s solar system. It stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Batista, Bradley Cooper(voice), Vin Diesel(voice), it’s not the best cast when you think of a superhero movie but we’ll see.

 

6. Superman vs. Batman

We got our first look at Ben Affleck as Batman this week and he looks awesome, on contrary to what people are saying. Affleck may not be the best Bruce Wayne or Batman but he’s sure going to be the most controversial and memorable. Ben Affleck is Batman people deal with it.  We also got a look of the batmobile, it all looks cool and I cant wait to see the final outcome. Keep in mind that this is a sequel to Man of Steel, it’s not a Batman/Dark Knight movie. I’m sorry I don’t have the picture.

 

7. Mockingjay

We got our first look at Mockingjay no just Julianne Moore as President Coin, which was pretty cool, she looked just like how I imagined Coin to be. We got some other stuff about Mockingjay but not trailer, just a poster teaser trailer part 1, which mean there is going to be more. I just really want the trailer to be release, it’s been long enough. I think the movie is in post-production t that’s why we haven’t seen anything, but I hope we’ll get our trailer soon.

 

So many movie announcement happened this week which one did you like the best?

-Have a good one.

2014 Summer Blockbusters: X-Men Days of Future Past

wpid-x-men-days-of-future-past-poster-posse-art-series-1.jpg

Marvel has officially taken summer blockbusters to a whole new level this year, with the release of Captain America: Winter Soldier, The Amazing SpiderMan 2 both did extremely well, dominating there opening weekend. Now with X-Men Days of Future Past and upcoming Rise of the Guardians destine to follow this path.

I wasn’t thrilled when I heard that they were going to combine the characters from the original X-Men trilogy with their younger selves from the X-Men First Class series. I thought that both series are good on its own and combined may be a disaster. I’m not a big fan of Marvel but when I saw the First Class movie I fell in love with it, I’m a sucker for a good origin story. Days of Future Past story is partially set in an alternate future where surviving mutants have been penned in concentration camps, giant robot called Sentinels patrol America, and most of the X-Men have been hunted and killed. In the present day, the X-Men are forced to stop a key event from unfolding in order to keep that future from occurring. They must change the past to save their future. The movie takes place in time different time zones, in the 1970’s(First Class) and 2018(where the film picks up with its original X-Men cast).

Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hault join forces with Patrick Steward, Ian McKellan, Hugh Jackson, Anna Pacquin  and Hally Berry who all will be reprising their iconic roles. For those who are fan of the original X-Men trilogy don’t get too excited to see the cast back together. The original trilogy will appear mostly in scenes depicting the dystopian future so time commitments for the actors are minimal.

Bryan Singer is on as director and producer, he is also the director of the original X-Men trilogy. Michael Vaughn who director X-Men First Class was previously on to director Days of Future Past but he lost out to Singer. Vaughn is on only as a producer.

With a budget around $220 million its the second most expensive film made by20th Century Fox, the first was Avatar so it has big shoes to fill. The many trailers that’s been released did not disappoint and with a budget like that it can’t afford to. The Sentinels are high anticipation in the X-Men series, fans had been waiting for over a decade to see them and in the trailer they look spectacular and they are all CGI.

Fan of X-Men can look forward to a X-Men Origin: Mystique, X-Men Origin: Deadpool and a X-Men 4 movies in the future. They are just under development and I hope that they don’t get shutdown like the Magneto movie which I would have love to see.

X-Men Days of Future Past is going to be full of action, explosion and amazing CGI and effect. If your a fan or not you should definitely see this movie.

Are you excited to see it, let me know your thoughts by commenting.

-Have a good one.
