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!
Right about now you're waiting news over any and all pertaining to Chad Stahelski's John Wick: Chapter Three which is still in production. This week, some of the best news to arise now sees word that Tiger Chen, Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman have all joined the production starring opposite Keanu Reeves who returns to star.
A few photos have gone viral in recent weeks seeing Chen merely hinting a presence on set but this latest update is official. The three are said to play opposite Keanu Reeves according news over at The Hollywood Reporter with Chen back on set following a starring role in the 2014 kung fu spiritual drama, Man Of Tai Chi.
It's an update worth noting as it hopefully sets up for a larger Hollywood screen presence for all three martial arts stars who've seen their rise in all of the last nine years collectively, including that of Chen whose friendship dates back to production on The Matrix trilogy. Ruhian and Rahman have been earning their claim to…
Well this is spiffy. Who Taffy Edwards is remains a mystery while said individual sits in the directors chair for upcoming independent crime pic, English Dogs. The film is set to arrive sometime this year and has Time Rush actors Byron Gibson (Only God Forgives) and martial arts sensation, action actor Ron Smoorenberg (Asura) leading the cast.
Plot details are nil as things stand, save for what we can extrapolate from the official trailer that premiered on Wednesday in addition to the film's doughty tagline: "There are 340 breeds of Dogs on the Planet but there can only be one Alpha". And that's about all we got to work with along with what the trailer offers in its ambitious British gangster tropes with Thailand as the backdrop, and watching Gibson throwdown along with shots of Smoorenberg in his element on top of chewing some scenery as a crimeboss, which is always welcome.
Check out the trailer below!
The last few years have seen the wheels turn quite a bit for director Jesse Haaja who made history in debuting Finland's first comic book superhero movie, Rendel. Nowadays he's developing other properties including Furrow, but that doesn't necessarily count out prospects for a sequel while genre specialist Raven Banner has anything to say for it.
Such is what includes Jeremy Kay's Screen International report this weekend with word that sales on sequel to the Finnish superhero hit film have launched at the Cannes market. Producers at Black Lion Pictures and Frozen Flame Pictures are planning an early 2019 shoot on Rendel 2 which has Haaja returning to the helm to follow up the story of a family man previously resurrected from near-death with a brutal, masked alterego to seek revenge in the name of a city crying out for justice against a criminal organization and their pharmaceutical cohorts. “I can’t even describe how excited I am for this,” Haaja said of the ongoing sag…
