Poster: CHIPS

I’m not the biggest fan of remakes, but sometimes they jell and get a smile from me (The Brady Bunch in 1995, 21 Jump Street in 2012). Dax Shepard and Michael Peña are perfectly cast in the remake of the classic TV series, with Shepard also on directing duties. They are surrounded by an awesome supporting cast that includes Adam Brody, Kristen Bell, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jessica McNamee, Ryan Hansen, and Maya Rudolph. The movie comes out on March 24th, 2017. You can check out the trailer here.

Logan opens on March 3 and stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and Richard E Grant. This is being billed as Jackman’s final film in the role of Logan/Wolverine in the X-Men series.

Avengers 2 Ironman Poster

Marvel Studios is setting the bar ridiculously high for superhero movi- scratch that, Marvel Studios is setting the bar ridiculously high for movies in general. Robert Downey Jr, aka Tony Stark, aka Ironman, tweeted this all new solo poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron (hot on the heels of a team shot). He has also stated that a “big announcement” will be coming in 8 days. Ironman 4? Has Downey Jr extended his contract with Marvel further into the future? Will they confirm that Spiderman will be featured in Captain America: Civil War? It can be so many things, which is very exciting.

In other Avengers 2 news, we just got confirmation that Anthony Mackie (the Falcon), Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter) and Idris Elba (Asgardian Heimdall) will all be appearing in the gigantic sequel. They join an already stellar cast of heroes including Chris Evans (Captain America), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Cobie Smulders (ex-SHIELD Agent Maria Hill), and Paul Bettany (Vision), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Quicksilver), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlett Witch), rumored villain Andy Serkis, and James Spader’s title character of Ultron. Hopefully they fit in some of our Agents of Shield, like Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), Ming-Na Wen (Melinda May), and Chloe Bennet’s now “Inhuman” Daisy “Skye” Johnson.

Joss Whedon’s Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters on May 1st, 2015 and I’ll be in the first screening with a huge bucket of popcorn!

Release Date: May 24, 2013
Studio: Warner Brothers
Director: Todd Phillips
Cast: Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, Ken Jeong, John Goodman, Melissa McCarthy, Justin Bartha.
Plot: The Hangover Part III is the third and final film in director Todd Phillips’ record-shattering comedy franchise. This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.

Thoughts: I don’t think anyone saw the trailer for the first Hangover and thought to themselves “I see this becoming one of the funniest and most successful comedy trilogies of all time.” But here we are, four years after the first movie with two sequels and countless box office dollars later.

Now, the second movie in the series was a huge let down creatively. Story-wise it was identical to the original (save for a new setting), and all of the jokes felt tired and used. The trailer for Part III gives me a lot of hope that they recognized the mistakes of the second one and improved on them. Right from the description, “..no wedding. No bachelor party,”

Yeah, I’ll be there.

I’m a huge fan of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series. The original was one of the films that defined horror to me as a kid and Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 was one of those bad films that was so much fun that I could watch it over and over. Most of the other six films in the series were forgettable or more of the same, but you’ll find that with any horror series. Texas Chainsaw 3D is the seventh film in the series and it is really weird.

Even with the “3” in the title, this movie is not a sequel to the two modern rebooted movies in the series from the Platinum Dunes (the 2003 Jessica Biel starring The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and its 2006 prequel The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning). No, Texas Chainsaw 3D is a direct sequel to the 1974 original, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Ironically, this would mark the third direct sequel to the original film after 1986’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 from the original director Tobe Hooper and 2004’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. So maybe the three in the title is deserved?

The poster is a nice homage to all of the Leatherface movies and it should be interesting to see how they try and connect the films. It has been revealed that archive footage from the original movie will be used in the new one that shows original actors Verna Carson and Gunnar Hansen. The plot is familiar; “A young woman travels to Texas, along with her friends, to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with a chainsaw-wielding maniac is part of the reward.” It doesn’t sound like this has to (or should be) a direct sequel to the original rather than just another Leatherface movie. What is with director’s obsession to make a direct sequel to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Guys, just get your stuff together and do your own thing. Pay your respect to the original, but don’t try so hard to make the definite sequel. The time has passed, no one is looking for it. The horror flick is scheduled for release on January 4, 2013 from Lionsgate.

A teaser poster for the upcoming X-Men prequel has been released! Check it out below…

The movie brings Bryan Singer back to the X-Men universe as a producer with the awesome hand of Matthew Vaughn directing the action flick that stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Caleb Landry Jones, Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne, Nicholas Hoult, January Jones, Kevin Bacon and Lucas Till.

What do you think about when you see this pretty stylish poster…?

To me it reads like a period musical, something along the lines of Chicago or All That Jazz, but it isn’t. The flick is a modern day musical that stars Christina Aguilera as Ali Rose, a small town girl that moves to Los Angeles where she finds herself working at a neo-burlesque club that is run by a former dancing legend portrayed by Cher. The film has a great cast with the likes of Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, Peter GAllagher, Cam Gigandet, and the lovable Kristen Bell. There is a pretty cool picture of Bell in the film over at MTV. The film hits theaters at the end of November.
