Transformers: The Last Knight header image

Now that production for Transformers: The Last Knight has officially wrapped, Paramount Pictures has released the first official trailer for the film. The fifth installment in the Transformers film franchise will live up to its title by adding a medieval element to the story. But don’t hold your breath on the film actually having a plot, this is a Michael Bay feature after all.

That being said, these Transformer films have been very lucrative and has even given Paramount the idea to created a shared universe about the war between the Autobots and Decepticons. And the idea that there could be knights involved is very intriguing, even for a film that has been critically panned time and time again. So check out to see the first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight.

The Mummy reboot Tom Cruise Annabelle Wallis

Now that Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Alex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, it’s time to answer some of those lingering questions we may have about the film. No, not about the shared Monsters universe that the studio is creating, but on how they shot that gravity-defying scene that sees Cruise and co-star Annabelle Wallis twisting and turning in a plane.

As it turns out, this wasn’t CGI or done on a soundstage. This was real and shot in an aircraft, appropriately called The Vomit Comet. Watch the featurette here below.

Star Wars Rogue One Creatures

Practical effects are coming back in a big way, and we have Star Wars to thank for that. The drive to have real physical effects gives a film a bit more believability, and we saw a lot of that in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Now, Lucasfilm will continue that tradition in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

With the film just two weeks away from release, we are getting a new look at how they brought the creatures to life in a brand new behind-the-scenes featurette. From the stars of the film to director Gareth Edwards to the very people who created these creatures, find out more on what it was like to shoot the film with practical effects.

‘The Mummy’ Trailer: Tom Cruise Meets Terrifying Gods and Monsters
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Universal's The Mummy

The popularity of a shared universe is undeniable. Disney has their Marvel Cinematic Universe, while Warner Bros. has the DC Extended Universe. Both studios use comic book source materials to expand and grow their superhero franchises. This doesn’t leave much for other studios. But in the case for Universal, they have their classic monster movies at their disposal. So, in order to keep up with the competition, they are launching a shared Monsters universe, and it will all kick off with Alex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Star Trek Beyond)

The film’s first trailer dropped during Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead. Check it out here below.

‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Trailer: These “A-Holes” Play To A New Awesome Mix

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 header

The response to the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at the San Diego Comic-Con this summer was overwhelmingly positive, and it was easy to see why some may have pestered director James Gunn to release it online. When October came, no one expected to see a snippet of what is to come. That teaser was more of a reintroduction to those familiar a-holes who helped save the galaxy. Now we are getting our first official look at the sequel in the form of a brand new trailer.

Check it out here below.

Movie Review: Jackie
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Jackie starring Natalie Portman

Jackie
Director: Pablo Larraín
Screenwriter: Noah Oppenheim
Cast: Natalie Portman, Greta Gerwig, Peter Sarsgaard, Max Casella, Beth Grant, Billy Crudup, Richard E. Grant, John Hurt
Distributor: Fox Searchlight Pictures
Rated R | 99 minutes
Release Date: December 2, 2016

Contemporary biopics no longer adhere to the traditional means of telling the entire life story of a subject. Nowadays, audiences are only given a small fraction of it. But it is in that stage of life that truly defines the subject. In Jackie, we see Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy at her most vulnerable point in life, where she has to deal with the grief of losing her husband, the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. The traumatic event would be enough to shatter anyone, but it is what she does in the aftermath that will truly cement her name among the greatest of First Ladies. With a strong script from Noah Oppenheim and director Pablo Larrin giving an outsider’s perspective on the matter, Jackie is hauntingly poetic view of an untold story. My full review below.

Disney In Depth Banner

The Walt Disney Studios released three critically/viewer acclaimed films in 2016 that also were major financial hits – Moana still pending, but early signs look favorable; Finding Dory; and Zootopia.

Which of the three films, though, is the best? That’s like picking a favorite child, considering each movie’s unique strengths. To help determine the winner – in my book, at least – I have established a bunch of categories that apply to all of the films. Let the battle commence!
