New BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE IMAX Poster And Final Trailer
To each his and her own on the opinions regarding the full trailers for Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice. I wasn't hugely impressed despite my own anticipation of the film as I felt they were more eager to showoff the DC Trinity more than anything, and frankly, I think WB should slow down before revealing too much.
Why? Well, honestly I'm driven solely by the hype that even though we're hinting at Wonder Woman from time to time, all of the much smaller promos have been focused primarily on the general basis of the film from its title encircling actors Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. The tone and overall delivery is quite exciting and with more than a month away from the film's premieres in late March, it's taken nothing away from me in just seeing the footage of Batman and Superman boil little by little until we finally see them duke it out before rewarding ourselves with Gal Gadot emerging into action as Wonder Woman prior to her own film coming soon.
That all said, I still can't wait to see this film and what it has to offer in Snyder's own Sophomore entry into the Warner Bros's DC Cinematic Universe leading into the Justice League films. It's going to be pure fun, I bet, and the latest IMAX poster (courtesy of USA Today) and final for the film tells me exactly that. Affleck's iteration of the Dark Knight absolutely shines in a new light all its own with some sweet looking action and purposeful moments that make Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, a feat to truly look forward to, especially for Batfans looking a few years onward.
This is how you sell a damn movie! Watch and observe all below!
The past few years have been a vigorous tug-and-pull over just how long it would be before actor and martial artist Iko Uwais would see a more principal role than in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Landing a more definitive English speaking line in this year's thriller, Headshot, was just another layer on the waiting cake added until more time passed until now, with actor Frank Grillo front and center with the cast that outlines the first of possible prospects to come between two actors who've gotten their start in different markets.
I speak of prospects with a certain action crime saga remake in mind, but in the good name of staying on topic, let's bring things back into focus. For this, we now turn to the long-awaited first official teaser trailer for the new sci-fi thriller, Beyond Skyline from writer/producer/director Liam O'Donnell who served on the first film from directing duo Colin and Greg Strause back in 2010.
Those who haven't seen the first film yet have…
Director Kim Jee-Woon's 2005 action drama, A Bittersweet Life, certainly lended one of the most brutal and memorable titles Korean cinema had to offer near the start of the millenium with actor Lee Byung-Hun front and center. Fast forward to present day where Twentieth Century Fox is poised to advance a remake effort with the promise of actor Michael B. Jordan leading the cast.
Jennifer Yuh, Nelson (Kung Fu Panda 2, Kung Fu Panda 3) is being tapped to direct the remake with the goal of steering it as potential franchise starter with Jordan playing a high-level mob enforcer who becomes romantically embroiled in a deadly cover-up with his boss's young mistress. 21 Laps's own Shawn Levy, Dan Levine and Dan Cohen are producing in association with CJ Entertainment with Jason Young overseeing for Fox.
Jordan is next slated to appear in the February 16, 2018 release of Creed helmer Ryan Coogler's Marvel adaptation, Black Panther, opposite lead star Chadwick Boseman. (Deadlin…
I think it's safe to say you know your movie sucks when you not only screw the rights holders whose name and content you base your unsanctioned film on, but when said rights holders join the chorus of critics panning your movie from literally every angle of the internet. That is the level of achievement you have reached if your name is George Nolfi and you've directed a film called Birth Of The Dragon, long hyped to be a hopefully legendary homage to Bruce Lee, the late founder of Jeet Kune Do and patriarch of American martial arts movie fandom.
