Michael Bay has made his share of movies that do nothing but make your ears hurt. Explosions here, explosions there…but I must admit, he does wonders for action fans. So, for those of you who are fans of his, you may be excited to know that his ‘Transformers’ films will continue after ‘Age of Extinction’. Although, he has stated that he may not direct the fifth and sixth instalments, I am expecting him to return. I wish he wouldn’t, however, as I’m waiting for him to do something new. I feel like ‘Transformers’ has hit its peak, but the action is exhilarating.
I made the mistake of reading the ending of ‘Gone Girl’, a novel by Gillian Flynn, at a local book store recently. I knew it was being adapted into a movie and I was interested to know what it was all about. Biggest mistake I may have made. David Fincher directs the film adaptation, with Ben Affleck staring as a husband who is on the search for his wife, who has disappeared. ‘Gone Girl’ will be released October 3rd, 2014.
The third and last film adaptation to the best selling novel ‘Allegiant’ will be cut in half. ‘Allegiant: Part 1′ will be released March 18th, 2016, while Part 2 will be released March 24, 2015. The second film to the series ‘Insurgent’ will be released March 20th, 2015. The film joins the likes of ‘Twilight’, ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘The Hunger Games’, with each of the series finales being split in two. In my opinion, I don’t like the idea of split films. It just makes sense to combine the films in one film instead of having them drag. As much as I loved ‘Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 1′, it felt like an unfinished film, but part 2 was a great conclusion. I haven’t seen ‘Divergent’ yet, but I’ve heard mixed things from people who have. Did you see ‘Divergent’? Is it worth the watch?
‘How to Train Your Dragon’ was probably, in my opinion, one of Dreamwork’s best films. The film looked great visually and was emotionally packed. Now comes the sequel, which looks as equally great visually and emotionally packed. ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2′ brings back your favourite voice cast, including Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, T.J. Miller and Kristen Wiig. New additions include Cate Blanchett, Kit Harrington and Djimon Hounsou. The film will hit theatres June 13th.
I’m pretty excited for this one. I loved ’21 Jump Street’ and, surprisingly, I wanted to see more of Channing Tatum in comedic roles. The Red Band trailer of ’22 Jump Street’ shows, so far, that it could potentially be just as good as the first. ’22 Jump Street’ will be released June 13th.
‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ made $95 million on it’s opening weekend and was loved by critics and fans. So, why not green light the sequel? Better yet, why not release it against a rival studios most anticipated film? ‘Captain America 3′ is set to be released May 6th, 2016, which just so happens to be when the ‘Batman vs Superman’ film will be released. Do you think this is a good call from Marvel? To release the film against DC’s most anticipated film? I have yet to see ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’. I’m hoping to see it tomorrow, and I’m excited to see what all the hype is about. As for Marvel: Phase two, before ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is released May 1st, 2015, we still have ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ to be released August 1st, 2014, a film that I’m very excited about.
It’s with a heavy heart that I report the death of a legend. Mickey Rooney passed away today at the age of 93. According to TMZ, Mickey Rooney was ill for “quite some time”. I was just thinking about Mickey Rooney recently after watching Night at The Museum. I was hoping I’d see him again in some capacity in the films sequel. He was a great actor. R.I.P Mickey Rooney.
