Venom

As far as first looks go, there is no way that a studio would ever make a huge reveal outright. The first photos are generally teasers to get fans and audiences interested but they are also nothing to get overly excited for. Still, it does let us know that said movie is coming, and that is true for Sony’s first Spider-Man spinoff Venom.

The first photo has just been revealed, and it’s of star Tom Hardy. But not as Venom, the black suit alien symbiote. But the down-on-his-luck investigative journalist who will eventually bond with the suit to become the anti-hero Spider-Man knows all too well. Check it out below.

Woody Harrelson In Talks To Join The Cast Of ‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff ‘Venom’

Woody Harrelson

Sony’s first attempt to launch a Spider-Man universe was mocked and ridiculed for trying to keep up with the Marvel Cinematic Universe by squeezing in every single possible Easter Egg you can think of into one itty bitty film. So after that was a huge disaster, the studio decided to share the character with Marvel, effectively killing the Amazing Spider-Man universe. But in doing so, they were able to re-evaluate that same universe. However, there’s plenty of red tape that will not allow the Spider-Man characters Sony currently owns to play in the Marvel Studio sandbox.

So, with so many characters at their disposal, they are creating a Spider-Man less universe where all Spider-Man supporting characters can come play. As absurd as that sounds, it looks like they are drawing some major attention. Venom in particular, as it touts a cast that consists of Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, and Jenny Slate. And if that weren’t impressive enough, the Ruben Fleischer-directed film will be adding Woody Harrelson to the cast. Find out more on the story below.

The LEGO Batman Movie review header

The LEGO Batman Movie
Director: Chris McKay
Screenwriter: Seth Grahame-Smith, Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Jared Stern and John Whittington
Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Jenny Slate
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG | 104 Minutes
Release Date: February 10, 2017

It wasn’t that long ago when The LEGO Movie burst into movie theaters with a million of bricks and an equal amount of laughs. What looked liked a bad idea at first turned out to be interlocking blocks of bubble gum pop and child-like nostalgia. Its success would, of course, give way for sequels and spinoffs, because that’s how successful movies work nowadays. And now we are getting a taste of that with The LEGO Batman Movie.

Sure enough, The LEGO Batman Movie proves that its predecessor was no fluke. It continues the tradition of capturing the child-like imagination of playing with these building blocks to construct a manically energized spinoff full of hilarious Batman references and self-deprecating humor. But it is also a visual bubble gum pop joy that has a heartfelt message and crazy action that can be damn near exhausting.

But at the end of the day, The LEGO Batman Movie is a pure delight that even non-Batman fans will enjoy. Check out the full review below.

The LEGO Batman Movie Gotham Cribs

We are one week away from the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, the spinoff to The LEGO Movie. Will Arnett returns to voice the Dark Knight Minifigure, who is profoundly dark and brooding. Michael Cera joins him as Robin, the Boy Wonder, while Rosario Dawson will voice Barbra Gordon, aka Batgirl.

Last week, we saw a video that took us behind the scenes of the making of the film. Now a new featurette gets into the bricks of things by taking us to the film’s setting, Gotham City – which is built by LEGO bricks, of course – for an episode of “Gotham Cribs.” Check out the video below.

When we first saw The Batman (Will Arnett) in The LEGO Movie, he was a dark and brooding superhero who did not play well with others. Worst of all, he was playing second fiddle to a nobody. However, the Dark Knight Minifigure believes that he was the reason why The LEGO Movie was such a huge success. And because of that, he is convinced that the world is ready for The LEGO Batman Movie.

A new featurette titled “Behind The Bricks” brings us closer to the characters in the upcoming film. Unlike traditional featurettes, this one interviews the actual characters as Minifigures. Check it out here below.

‘Despicable Me 3’ Trailer: It’s Gru Vs 80s Throwback Villain

Despicable Me 3

Illumination Entertainment is a fine animation studio, but despite their well-convinced stories, the execution comes nowhere near the level of Disney or Pixar. If you had to ask what their flagship film would be, it would most probably be the Despicable Me films.

Despicable Me took the studio to where it is now, and Universal has released the first trailer for Despicable Me 3, starring Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, and Trey Parker.

Gifted Starring Chris Evans

Chris Evans has taken up the shield as Captain America for the past five years, but now the actor will be playing a different kind of hero. Fox Searchlight has released the first trailer for Marc Webb‘s Gifted, a heartwarming film that centers on Frank (Evans), a single parent who’s raising Mary (Mckenna Grace), his 7-year-old niece who just so happens to be a math prodigy.

While he does his best to honor his late sister’s wish of giving her a normal life, he is put at odds with his mother (Lindsay Duncan), who wants to enroll Mary in a special program for gifted students. Check out the trailer below.

Movie Review: The Secret Life Of Pets

The Secret Life Of Pets

The Secret Life of Pets
Director: Chris Renaud and Yarrow Cheney
Screenwriters: Brian Lynch, Cinco Paul, Ken Daurio
Cast: Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Steve Coogan, Ellie Kemper, Bobby Moynihan, Lake Bell, Hannibal Buress, Albert Brooks
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG | 98 Minutes
Release Date: July 8th, 2016

The whole idea that there is a life that humans do not know about when they live in their residence is not exactly original storytelling. We’ve seen it in The Brave Little Toaster and three Toy Story films. While those films focused on inanimate objects, we hardly ever seen a film that centers on pets, and if you’re a pet owner like myself, you often wonder what exactly goes on when you are way – unless you have cameras to watch over them.

So like those animated films, The Secret Life of Pets explores an exaggerated version of that narrative. While Illumination entertainment tells a hilarious story that is a culmination of every story of a pet trying to get back to its master mixed with Hanna Barbara cartoon vibes, it doesn’t quite reach the emotional level of tear shedding you would see in a Pixar film. Not a huge takeaway, but the film feels more like a Tom and Jerry cartoon that goes on a bit longer than it should. Read my full review below.

Movie Review: Zootopia

Zootopia Header

Zootopia
Directors: Byron Howard, Rich Moore, Jared Bush
Writers: Jared Bush, Phil Johnston
Cast: Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Bateman, Idris Elba, J.K. Simmons, Jenny Slate, Nate Torrence, Shakira
Studio: Disney Animation Studios
Release Date: March 4, 2016

On the surface, Zootopia looks like just another talking animal with anthropomorphic features piddling around getting laughs by means of using childish humor. But that is just the surface, and it is a very thin one. In reality, for beyond that layer lies a deeper and more meaningful story, and if you peel that layer back, you’ll soon discover that Disney Animation Studios’ latest film has a message, a very poignant one that could not have come out at a more perfect time.

In a day and age where bullying, prejudices, stereotypes, and preconceived notions are hurting many, and social issues are becoming more prevalent in our neighboring communities and homes, Zootopia has a message. Yeah, expecting a film like this to get everyone to get along is merely impossible and expecting too much, but all it is asking of us is to “try.” Try to understand one another, because if you do, you’ll become more exceptional. Check out the full review of the movie here below.
