Pacific Rim: Uprising does not have to be great cinema. It need merely be big, stupid fun for me to be completely onboard. It may not equal the del Toro directed first film, but if you think that’s going to prevent me, as a guy whose last name is Yaeger, from going to see a movie in which giant robots called Jaegers save the day…..you are sadly, sadly mistaken. It could be the worst movie of the year and still serve as a two hour self-affirmation journey for me. So when the Kaijus return in March….I shall be there! RISE JAEGERS RISE!…………..IN GLORIOUS IMAX!!!! Continue reading Pacific Rim: Uprising Trailer IMAX Trailer (2018) “Nothing Can Prepare You”
Ready Player One is a book I loved, and I have never felt that any of the trailers that have been presented for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming adaptation of the book felt like they were on point, and that continues with the final trailer, which is an homage to the Willy Wonkaesque quest that players will go on in the OASIS to find the hidden keys. I have no confidence in Steven Spielberg as a director anymore, either as a serious film maker or a crafter of the kind of blockbusters he created as a the driving financial force in Hollywood. There seems way more emphasis on Easter Eggs and cameos in this trailer than the actual plot, which is more than enough to sell the story. If they’d pushed The Iron Giant this much before his own movie, more people would have seen that animated classic. He’s gotten more screen time than the plot. I hope I’m wrong, but I think this film is going to go horribly off the rails. Ready Player One opens in March 29, 2018.
Set in the near future, Ready Player One follows outcast teenager Wade Watts (Sheridan), who escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first. The film stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cook, Leticia Wright, Mark Rylance, Simon Pegg, and Ben Mendelsohn.
During last night’s exhibition of superhuman abilities at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Disney Pixar unveiled a new sneak peak of this summer’s most anticipated animated film, The Incredibles 2, opening June 15, 2018.
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.
Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
Serving as executive producers are Marcus Viscidi, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Jeff Fierson, with Wendy Jacobson co-producing. The screenplay is by Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel, and the story by Ryan Engle.
Released in 1986, the original Rampage put players in control of one of three monsters: A giant ape named George; a giant lizard name Lizzy; or a giant werewolf named Ralph. The game saw the monsters running amok across the United States, fighting the military, and destroying key landmarks. Several sequels were developed for the title as well, adding even more types of monsters to the playable roster and extending their path of destruction into the cosmos and even back in time.
Rampage is set to open April 20, 2018.
