Ted Trailer

I happened to stumble upon these two trailers for the up coming movie,”Ted” (simple title, I know). The first one is more for adult viewing (It’s a “Red Band Restricted trailer) the second is a green band, which is more suitable for everyone. (Though I don’t think this movie is for everyone, who isn’t of age I mean.)

“This summer, the “Family Guy” creator brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice star of Ted. In the live action/CG-animated comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish… and has refused to leave his side ever since.” (via coming soon.net)

starring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Giovanni Ribisi, MacFarlane, Joel McHale, Patrick Warburton, Jessica Stroup and Laura Vandervoort.

 

Below is the official movie poster to the film.

April Gets a Captain

Recently I blogged about the director change for Captain America’s sequel and now we have a date. Unlike most of Marvel’s previous movies, the sequel to “Captain America: The First Avenger is scheduled to be released on April 14th, 2014.

The sequel will continue where the highly anticipated “Marvel’s The Avengers” leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. As of right now, the only cast and crew known to return is Chris Evans and screenwriter Stephen McFeely who’s notable screen writes are the Narnia movies and the upcoming Michael Bay picture, “Pain and Gain”.

 

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

Captain America May Get New Director For The Sequel

While Captain America: The First Avenger was directed by Joe Johnston and received positive reviews, Vulture is reporting that Marvel Studios is going with a new director(s) for the sequel:

They say: “Vulture hears that the search is narrowing for someone to helm the patriotic hero’s own personal sequel. Insiders tell us that a field of ten directors has been whittled to just three for the follow-up to last summer’s hit: George Nolfi, the writer-director of The Adjustment Bureau; F. Gary Gray, best known for directing The Italian Job; and, naturally … Community’s Anthony and Joseph Russo?”

Vulture adds that Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige hit it off with the Russos, who have also directed You, Me and Dupree and Welcome to Collinwood.

A decision on the director(s) should be made by mid-April

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

The Anchorman is back… In a sequel that is

Paramount Pictures has finally given the green light to a sequel to 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Will Ferrell, who made the announcement himself in-character on “Conan”, will return to the title role with supporting cast members Steve Carell and Paul Rudd said to be involved as well.

Ferrell, whose latest, Casa de mi Padre is in theaters now, will again script alongside Adam McKay, who will be back in the director’s chair.

The original film also starred Christina Applegate, David Koechner, Fred Willard, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell and many more. Though none of those members of the supporting cast have yet been confirmed. I’m sure before the spring season is done, more cast members will be confirmed from the original Anchorman movie.

 

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

“Safe” Trailer.

The trailer for Jason Statham’s newest movie “Safe”. I think its safe to say, Statham may have be “typed cast” as an actor. That isn’t such a bad thing because when he does actions movies his movements seem so believable. The plot for this movie:

“Sometimes a chance meeting can save your life.

Mei (Catherine Chan) is a 10 year-old Chinese math prodigy who is abducted from her home in Nanjing by the Triads; she is sent to America by the Triad Leader Han Jiao (James Hong), where she will serve as a “counter” for their extortion racquets. No computers, no paper trails – she keeps all the numbers in her head. One year later Mei’s new adopted “father” Chang (Reggie Lee) brings her along to count the numbers as he shakes-down his business operations.

Luke Wright (Jason Statham) is a second rate cage fighter in the mixed martial arts circuit in New Jersey. When he blows a rigged fight, the Russian mafia make an example of him – murdering his wife and threatening to kill anyone he forms any kind of friendship or relationship with. Now homeless, destitute and completely isolated from society, Luke wanders the streets of New York like a ghost, hovering on the edge of suicide.

Big things begin to stir in the city, when Triad boss Han Jiao appears in New York, and gives Mei a secret number to memorize; on her way to use this number for an unknown purpose, Mei is violently kidnapped from the Triads by the Russian Mafia, who want the information she now has in her head— as does the corrupt Captain Wolf (Robert John Burke) of the NYPD. Mei manages to escape, but she won’t be able to survive on her own for long.

Standing on a subway platform ready to throw himself under a train, Luke Wright sees the young and terrified Chinese girl being pursued by Russian thugs… he knows something is wrong, and he knows now he has to make a decision: continue on his downward spiral, or come back fighting in order to help a little girl he’s never even met. Luke comes back to life, forcing himself into violent action, and over the course of one harrowing night he tears a swath through the city’s underworld in order to save Mei’s life and redeem his own.”

in my opinion it looks a like a “B-Rated” movie that did really well in Asia and is finally here to gain some North American buzz. That being said Id still watch it, and will give you guys a review for sure.

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

TMNT Or Just Ninja Turtles?

Platinum Dunes’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to feature a very non-traditional origin for its reptilian heroes. In fact, producer Michael Bay hints that the turtles may not be mutants at all, which has sparked much “fan hate”. 

Word arrives via Stuff We Like and a video of Bay speaking at last week’s Nickelodeon Upfront in New York where he states:

Could this be the "Alien" versions? (NOT OFFICIAL artwork of the pending movie)

since this statement was made (and probably taken out of context in my opinion), Bay has realized to counter statements to respond to the fans who have become upset at Bay for “ruining their childhood”

Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story. Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.”

and his 2nd statement which is most recent.

“Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple. The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. HE’S NOT GOING TO LET YOU DOWN.

MICHAEL”

To be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will feature a script from Josh Appelbaum, Andrew Nemec, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and John Fusco.

The franchise, which began as a black and white comic book series in 1984, rose to tremendous popularity when it became an animated series in 1987. Following the first live-action film in 1990, the series spawned two live-action sequels, a live-action television series, a second animated series and a CGI feature film.

Just announced for a Christmas Day, 2013 release.

Do I feel like its needed to be called TMNT? (Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles for you muggles) No. To be honest I’d rather them make a movie thats good and has the same elements that made many fall in love with mutated, teenaged turtles in the first place.

As long as they aren’t anti hero then I’m ok with it. many bash Bay for the Transformers run he has, I don’t think any of them are right to do so. All three, in my opinion, were great movies and I can’t wait for the forth one. Hopefully the director does take into account what the fans are asking for when it comes to TMNT and gives them something to be like “OMG THAT WAS INCREDIBLE!” Cause in all honesty, 1987 was 25 years ago, so really its time to pass the torch to the new kids coming up.

THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!

The Raid Redemption TRAILER

The Raid: Redemption (Indonesian: Serbuan maut) is an Indonesian martial arts action film directed by Gareth Evans and starring Iko Uwais which is set for a 2012 release. This is the second collaboration of Evans and Uwais after their first action film, Merantau released in 2009. Both films showcase the traditional Indonesian martial artPencak Silat. The fight choreographers of The Raid are Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian who also worked on Merantau. The US release of the film features music by Mike Shinoda of rap rock band Linkin Park and Joseph Trapanese.

After its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), critics and audience alike hailed The Raidas one of the best action films in years.

Deep in the heart of Jakarta’s slums lies an impenetrable derelict apartment building which became a safe house for the world’s most dangerous killers and gangsters. The rundown apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the bravest of police. Cloaked under the cover of pre-dawn darkness and silence, an elite team is tasked with raiding the building in order to take down the notorious drug lord who runs it. But when a chance encounter with a spotter blows their cover and news of their assault reaches the drug lord, the building’s lights are cut off and all exits are blocked. Stranded on the 6th floor with no way out, the unit must fight their way through the city’s worst criminals to survive their mission.

TF4

Optimus Prime may need to gear up once and for all, for real this time.

Optimus Prime may need to gear up once and for all, for real this time.

Could it be? after being in the top 4 box office smash hits with Trasnformers 3 (Dark of the Moon), Mr. Bay has confirmed there will be a TF4 and he’s directing it that works out to be a two picture deal.
