  • Venom

Genre(s): Action, Horror, Sci-Fi
Director: Ruben Fleischer
Writers: Jeff Pinkner, Kelly Marcel, Scott Rosenberg
Cast: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Jenny Slate, Woody Harrelson, Riz Ahmed
Rating: NR

Marketing has not begun for the long-awaited Venom movie. Venom poses one of the most interesting questions for Marvel-based movies. Will it or won’t it connect to Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man and how will the first “adjunct” movie to the main Marvel Cinematic Unviverse actually fit in? How is Venom really Venom if he’s never had Peter Parker and his spidey powers as a host or is that coming later? An all-star cast, director, and property still make for a wonderful mix as a standalone origin story for the Venom symbiote. –

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Official Trailer #1

ant-man-and-the-wasp

Marvel has released the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp today after months of teasing set photos and pictures of the new costumes. Director Peyton Reed teased the first trailer on Twitter last night.

This is the first in-depth look we’ve seen of the Ant-Man sequel since it was first announced in October 2015. Set as a sequel to the 2015’s Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp once again sees Paul Rudd suit up as the shrinking superhero Ant-Man, this time joined by Evangeline Lilly, who’ll be joining in on the action as Wasp (in case you didn’t quite get that from the title). Also returning is Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, the inventor of the shrinking technology that gives both Ant-Man and the Wasp their powers. Michael Peña will also return as Ant-Man’s scene-stealing star Luis.

The trailer shows us a look into what the plot of the new movie will be, which revolves round rescuing the original Wasp from the Quantum Realm which was teased in the 2015 Ant-Man  movie.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is set to hit theatres July 6th, 2018.

New “Tomb Raider” trailer has Lara Croft struggling for Survival

rs_1024x683-180118093811-1024.tomb-raider.11818

Based on the best-selling series of video games, the movie follows the rebellious Lara Croft as she travels to a fabled tomb on a mythical island to uncover the mystery behind her father’s disappearance. The first trailer for “Tomb Raider” showed scenes of Alicia Vikander in action as the new adventurer Lara Croft. Warner Bros. has released a new “Tomb Raider” trailer that sheds more light on the survival skills Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) will need through out the movie.

This new adaptation of the popular game will focus on a young, broke college student living in East London, whose life abruptly changes when she decides to seek out adventure by joining an archaeological mission to find a fabled tomb off the coast of Japan. It fleshes out the character’s backstory, as Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) – boxer and bicyclist goes against the wishes of Ana Miller (Kristin Scott Thomas), an associate at Richard Croft’s company, Croft Holdings to search for her long-lost father (Dominic West).

That quest takes her to an island in the middle of the Devil’s Sea, where she clashes with the film’s villain, Mathias Vogel, a rival archaeologist of Richard Croft (Walton Goggins). He’s a member of a deadly organization known as Trinity that is seeking to set off a worldwide genocide.

1024px-autopx-scale-to-width-down

The character of Lara Croft originated in a video game and was later played in two films by Angelina Jolie.  This reboot with Alicia Vikander as Croft is meant to be a prequel to Angelina Jolie’s. Hence the trailer’s tagline, “Her Legend Begins.

See full Synopsis below:

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad’s last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn’t be higher for Lara, who—against the odds and armed with only her sharp mind, blind faith and inherently stubborn spirit—must learn to push herself beyond her limits as she journeys into the unknown. If she survives this perilous adventure, it could be the making of her, earning her the name tomb raider.

The trailer’s soundtrack is a cover of the Destiny’s Child hit “Survivor”.

“Tomb Raider” is set to hit theatres on March 16, 2018.

As usual, the nominees for the 75th annual Golden globes is out made by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. It was announced Monday Morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Each year, the Golden globe nominations are know to be notoriously unpredictable and surprising to many and this year is no different. The Shape of Water led the pack with seven nominations, including nods for best picture, director, and actress, all in the drama category. It was followed closely by The Post and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, two more dramas that picked up a respectable six nominations apiece. In the comedy categories, Lady Bird reigned supreme with four nods, although it may face stiff competition from I, Tonya which got three and The Greatest Showman, the upcoming P.T. Barnum musical starring Hugh Jackman. the biggest surprise was in the film categories, three nods were given to All the Money in the World, a Ridley Scott film that underwent hasty reshoots and edits after Scott decided to replace star Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer, following a series of accusations of sexual misconduct against Spacey.

in the Television categories, Big Little Lies (of course) had the most nominations, scoring six total nods. The Handmaid’s Tale which also, like Big Little Lies, recently won big at the Emmys was tied for most-decorated drama with This Is Us earned three nominations each.
