Skyscraper

Skyscraper
Director: Rawson Marshall Thurber
Writers: Rawson Marshall Thurber
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Neve Campbell, Chin Han, Roland Møller, Noah Taylor, Byron Mann, Pablo Schreiber, Hannah Quinlivan
Studio: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 102 Minutes
Release Date: July 13, 2018

Science and physics do not apply for a blockbuster film. So don’t expect to see any of that in Skyscraper. The film starring Dwayne Johnson seems to defy all logic and sound science, and somehow still manages to be a modestly entertaining film, even with its thin story and cheesy goodness.

So after facing off against some unlikely antagonists, which have taken many different forms throughout the course of his career – from giant beasts, terrorist organizations, even earthquakes – Johnson is up against one of his tallest adversaries to date, a giant burning building filled with terrorists holding his family hostage. Check out our review of Skyscraper below.

Skyscraper starring Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has faced off against some of the craziest things in his films. Submarines, earthquakes, Vin Diesel, giant flying wolves, a jungle, and sports. But scaling a burning skyscraper. Well, that’s something new.

Universal has released the second trailer for Skyscraper, where the actor plays Will Sawyer, a skyscraper security advisor. When he is assigned to a detail in China, a group of terrorists infiltrate the building, framing him for the job and holding his family hostage. So it is up Will to rescue his family and clear his name, all the while the building is ablaze. Check out the latest trailer below.

Dwayne Johnson films have always been big on entertainment, and it looks like his latest blockbuster will live up to that reputation. In Skyscraper, he plays a former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran who has been framed for a crime he did not commit. Now a fugitive, he must clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building…above the fire line.

Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell

Back in April we saw the first image of Scarlett Johansson from Paramount Pictures’ live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga Ghost in the Shell.

Now Paramount is doing something a little different. They haven’t released the first teaser trailer, or a quick teaser video to promote the release of the first trailer as we see so often these days. Instead, they’ve released five brief teaser videos, each with a few moments of footage.

You can read more about the movie and watch all five of the videos below.

Movie Review: Contagion

Contagion

Contagion
Directed by Steven Soderbergh
Starring: Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet, Elliott Gould, Jennifer Ehle, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Chin Han, Griffin Kane, Sanjay Gupta
Release Date: September 9, 2011

Contagion is a movie that showed much promise with its previews and its advertised premise, but in reality it turns into 100 minutes of wasted production opportunities used instead to push stereotypical propaganda at the viewer. With its notable ensemble cast, and a plot device that is not new but has been proven to be popular over the years, the Steven Soderbergh film had huge potential that will do nothing but disappoint the thriller/horror fans expecting an epidemic epic.

I have been quite a big fan of medical thrillers over the years, particularly those that focus on diseases and outbreaks. From stories of crazy Ebola-like viruses to weaponized disease, I’ve been fascinated with the concept both in its reality, and in its use as a plot device in thrillers. I have no rationalization for this attraction: perhaps it was the wonderful conclusion H.G. Wells brought us to in War of the Worlds, or perhaps it is the disease-based plot devices of some of my favorite zombie flicks. Either way, when word came out Soderbergh was taking up the subject; I was thrilled at the prospect.
