If you're one of the many sweating your 'do out this weekend, you can blame it on the release of the teaser trailer for Marvel's most-anticipated new franchise, Black Panther because it is straight fire.
Empire's Cookie may be one of the only Lyons who don't grace the musical stage, but doppleganger Taraji P. Henson cannot stop singing the praises of her latest film, Proud Mary. Henson has recently started sharing stills and videos from the last day on set, and she is already selling the film that isn't slated for release until 2018.
If you had Saturday morning plans that were abruptly canceled, it might be because DC just dropped the first full-length trailer for Justice League. Let the analysis and hunting for Easter Eggs begin!
I fully admit that this Small Screen Girl is a ride-or-die Marvel girl who believes DC’s strength lies in its television shows as long as Zack Snyder is at the helm of the films. Yet I was riveted by the trailer, particularly by all things Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).
Like most of DC’s contributions to the superhero cinematic world, I have questions...
If you've ever had the pleasure (or displeasure) of meeting me, you might eventually notice that I talk a lot. I type nearly 100 words per minute, and my brain movies even faster. I can talk endlessly about my favorite subjects-turned-obsessions. Growing up, my father affectionately nicknamed me "blabbermouth" (which was better than "Buckethead" or "Lizard Lips") when I began prattling his during his beloved Bears games. It's just a colorful facet of my personality.
And yet, I, the girl who's had lengthy discussions about Mahershala Ali's bone structure, struggled to identify or pinpoint my reaction to Hidden Figures, Fox's powerful biopic about Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), the NASA computer who helped invent the mathematics enabling space landings.
Marvel released the new trailer for the 2017's Guardian's Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 earlier this week, and the extended clip features Chris Pratt's Peter Quill, his band of crime-fighting extraterrestrials, some sweet '80s tunes, and a Baby Groot fresh from the pot.
After multiple viewings, I can't decide if Baby Groot, who is still voiced by the gravel-throated Vin Diesel, is cool or too cutesy.
Is there such thing as a good version of PTSD? Post-Terrific Sensation Disorder?
Because that's what I was afflicted with upon viewing Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids concert film released to Netflix on Oct. 12.
In 2012, a friend and I were at brunch when the secret service descended. President Barack Obama, heavy on the campaign trail, wanted to eat a local restaurant, and doing so required a dozen agents fanning through a European eatery to assess the over the overall security of the establishment. It was just another moment in the political grandeur that is being a sitting president.
There is no trace of such star-spangled fanfare in Southside With You—a sweet, enlightening sense memory of a film about Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson's first date in 1989.
It’s clear that I have a small obsession with trailers of any kind. Like newborn babies, they are brimming with possibility and offer glimpses of brilliance. This year’s crop from San Diego Comic-Con are ripe with humor, adventure, CGI and those tremulous sonic tuba farts that resonate in your chest and crank up the thrill-factor.
Since Comic-con is all about the synergy of entertainment, spectacle and marketing, so let’s see how the biggest movie trailers stack up against each other. Check out my grades for the previews for Wonder Woman, King Arthur: Legend of The Sword and more…
Admittedly, the state of movies thus far in 2016 has left a lot to be desired unless you prefer your outings to the cinema to contain capes, slaptstick comedy or CGI animals.
Thankfully, we’re entering into the back end of the year when movies become more sophisticated in order to court the attention of a very selective award named Oscar.
The trailer for the dramatic biopic, Loving was released this week, and it is nothing sort of heart-stirring. A romantic epic with a painfully timely civil rights spin, Loving tells the true story of a Virginia interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving who fought for the right to marry in the 1960s. A nearly unrecognizable Joel Edgerton (Black Mass) and Ruth Negga (Preacher) star in a film that not only won the posh hearts of Cannes Film Festival, and had this blogger reaching for the tissues.
Loving boasts that “some love stories can change the world.” And if the movie, set to hit theaters this November, lives up to its preview, it just may do the same. It’s simple and yet drips with a tempered grandeur as Edgerton and Negga, the southern setting, and the sweeping score marry into something that feels extraordinary, lovely and necessary.
Watch the trailer below, and share your thoughts in the comments section!
Pacific Rim’s long-awaited sequel just got universally cool.
