NEW TRAILER: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Yes yes, I know -

Some of you may remember that I didn’t get on that well with the first take at this reboot (I would argue that my 14 second re-make is much better) BUT this sequel looks promising. That’s Electro, being a bad-ass, Green Goblin (maybe) working with him, and the Rhino (mechanical form) getting a nod too.

If you count Vulture’s wings and Doc Ock’s arms, along with The Lizard from the first TASM, then you’ve got a six sinister bunch of villains right there, if you get my meaning.

Bring it.

NEW TRAILER: Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I’m actually well up for this.

  1. I like that this is (or at least seems) a bit more suspenseful.
  2. Nick Fury gets a beating. Oof.
  3. Falcon looks awesome.
  4. I hope The Winter Soldier actually gets some lines.
  5. The above is Trailer 2, but Trailer 1 is one worth a look too.

Not long now…

Captain America

The Robocop CES video

Watch this and tell me if you think it’s rubbish -

If you’re unsure of what this is about, Robocop (yes, that’s right, ROBOCOP) has been remade and is coming out later this year. No, I’m not kidding.

Robocop2014

I know. It’s terrible. Everyone knows. But much like Total Recall before, and Indy 5 and Die Hard 6 no doubt after, it’s coming whether we like (let alone want) it or not

The trailer isn’t actually that bad, but the marketing video above, launched to coincide with the real CES that has just finished up in Las Vegas, is a clear homage to the same style of video that Ridley Scott released last year for Prometheus. In that one, Guy Pearce’s character, Peter Weyland, gives a talk at ‘TED 2023‘ about how he ‘WILL CHANGE THE WORLD’.

If you’ve not seen it, it’s [still] worth watching -

It was smart, it was innovative, and it certainly stood head and shoulders above the usual trailers and teasers you see year in, year out (for what it’s worth, Prometheus was OK, but the plot holes were enormous).

This thing from Robocop is a poor imitation at best. At worst, it puts people off seeing a film that they probably didn’t want in the first place.

At the time of writing, the view-count is still sub-100k.

I wonder if the box office takings will be the same.

Incoming: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #GOTG

First post of 2014. Don’t be surprised now… 

Guardians of the Galaxy!

I know it’s literally just one image, but still: I’m so up for this.

The final film in Marvel’s ‘Phase 2′ (after IRON MAN 3, THOR: THE DARK WORLD, AND CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER), GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is the last piece of the puzzle before we see AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.

It’s a risky move, but I reckon Marvel can pull it off.

Left to right: Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Peter Quill / Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), and Groot (Vin Diesel).

The official synopsis:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

Still want more?

Educate thyself.

 

PS. Release dates for GOTG (and more) on my Instagram.
