With just a month and a half until James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters, Disney and Marvel is ramping up the marketing for the film by releasing new TV spots every other week or so. A couple of trailers, as well as those nifty character profiles, told us a little bit more about the strange cast of characters that make up this new superhero team.
The brand new international trailer gives us a better look at some of the comedy that will be seen and just how outrageous this film can really be. Plus we get more footage of Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) bantering “I am Groot.” Hit the jump to see the new trailer. [Read more...]
Disney is already knee deep into the business of retelling classic fairy tales. The fact that they have made a business out of it via their animated films, just shows that there is always more to a story than what we see or read. Do these retellings make for a good film? Sometimes it does, and sometimes it doesn’t. But when it comes to these fairy tale stories reimagined, we get a live-action animation hybrid that is heavily glossed over with CG and visuals.
Often times when you get a film that is so heavy with visual effects, other parts of it start to suffer. In this case, it’s the story. Like Alice In Wonderland and Oz: The Great And Powerful, the visuals are spectacular, and a few performances are wonderful, but other parts of the cast are wasted, and the script is something that does not reflect what we see in the visuals.
And that is what has happened with Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie. Hit the jump to read the full review. [Read more...]
Ever since Disney acquired the rights to Marvel a few years back, fans have been dreaming of what kind of collaboration the two giant entertainment companies could come up with. But none of them could have ever seen something like Big Hero 6 coming. The film is actually based on the comic of the same name, but it won’t be the live-action films we have been accustomed to seeing in the past. No, Big Hero 6 will be Disney and Marvel’s first full length animated feature film.
A young robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, builds his very own superhero team consisting of close friends and family, and his robot caretaker, a robot named Baymax, which looks like a walking marshmallow. But don’t let the Disney family friendly mantra fool you, Big Hero 6 looks awesome. Hit the jump to see the trailer. [Read more...]
There are good sports movies, and then there are great sports movies, but Million Dollar Arm, despite the feel good movie vibes you feel, falls somewhere in between the two. Craig Gillespie’s latest directorial effort plays it safe without taking any risks whatsoever, and uses the typical sports film formula to create a film we have all seen before. The potential was there, and it certainly wasn’t wasted. It’s just that it throws more fastballs than curveballs. Hit the jump for the full review. [Read more...]
