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!
There's a ton of things happening right now with all things John Wick. The origin comic, as well as two spin-offs are among the raft of projects already in development as Chad Stahelski now looks toward bringing the third film in the canon to life for next year.
For this, casting is already underway and with exclusive reporting from That Hashtag Show which reveals the addition of actor Sanada Hiroyuki to the movie. Sanada, whose international career has seen him work with legends like Fukusaku Kinji, Corey Yuen, and stars like Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh.
Reuniting with 47 Ronin lead Keanu Reeves reprising the title role of the John Wick franchise, Sanada will star the head of a crime syndicate with a score to settle with our stoic assassin now on the run from his former fellowship of clandestined assassins. The two will reportedly be rejoined by actress Ruby Rose and actor Common following their appearances in last year's sequel in which both go toe-to-toe with Reeves.
Crowdfunding officially kicked off on Monday with a new Indiegogo campaign for The Martial Arts Kid 2: Payback. Action stars Don "The Dragon" Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock are back and co-producing, as well as rejoining a cast of returning and new faces led by title star, actor Jansen Panettiere, and once more with writer/director Michael Baumgarten who helmed the first film as well as last year's Paying Mr. McGetty. Plot details are unknown for the sequel following the first installment centered on an embattled teenager struggling to face the odds in a new neighborhood with help of his martial arts expert sibs, Uncle Glen and Auntie Cindy. Returning are Brandon Tyler Russell, Matthew Ziff and martial artist TJ Storm to reprise their roles with Chuck Zito emerging for the sequel next to actor Sasha Mitchell and with award-winning stunt coordinator James Lew back to direct the action. Florida's Cocoa Beach will again serve as the backdrop from a script by Baumgarten with …
Segueing from steering the action and stunt work coordinating films like Ant-Man, Ninja Assassin and Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World, Peng Zhang now rests his prospects at the helm. This one is no small feat either however - reportedly five years and with a tall order of $100 million dollars to date for Ningxia Film Group's upcoming Buddhist fantasy action adventure, Asura, making it China's most expensive movie in history, and as the hopeful first in a trilogy.
Signaling this month with an official teaser trailer ahead of a release midway in 2018, the film introduces a story set in the titular realm of pure desire which now finds itself threatened by a staged coup from a lower kingdom. Leading the way are burgeoning talents, actress Zhang Yi Shang (Railroad Tigers) with Lei Wu (The Shanghai Job, upcoming Nehza) starring as saviors to the realm and evident love interests to each other amid the upheaval of emerging villains and fantastic visuals host to spectacular scenery, battle…
