Hello my fellow readers, as I manage to post in this academic storm of mine, I hope you can all bear with me for the moment. I am still trying to figure out how to expand my blog but all in due time, I should figure things out. I am part of a student funded body in my university and we usually take trips to exotic locations, recently we were fortunate to visit the Nyiregyhaza zoo in Hungary which seems to be the biggest in Eastern Europe as it took me a good while to traverse the whole landscape. I would be uploading pictures from the trip soon. For today, I would be talking about a proposed movie for a popular medieval TV show, the uncertainty of a third movie about never crossing streams and a couple of trailers that have been released recently. In light of Facebook purchasing the Oculus Rift. Let’s get it on.
- WINTER IS COMING IN THEATRES
George R.R. Martin, the creative mind behind the popular HBO critical hit, Game of Thrones has expressed interest in making a movie after the final season of the show in order to “wrap things up”. I am a huge fan of the TV show and I don’t doubt that a movie would not be awesome, but we live in a time where TV shows try to wrap up their final seasons with a movie and then the movie turns out to just be a 2 hour episode…ahem…X-Files. Personally I would prefer a movie that serves as a prequel to the whole show, exploring the lives of the people before like the Mad King and others. Don’t get me wrong, if they do decide to make a movie, I would be there on the first day. What are your thoughts?
- REVISITING STREAMS
Due to the unfortunate passing of Hollywood actor Harold Ramis, the possibilities of a third Ghostbusters movie has been put on hold. It was recently reported that Sony Pictures re-evaluated the script after Ramis’ passing, to add salt to injury, it was also reported that Ivan Reitman the director of the first two movies has stepped down from the director’s chair. As of right now, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the creative duo behind movies like 21 Jump Street and The Lego Movie are in talks to direct the movie. What are your thoughts? Is it too late for another Ghostbusters sequel?
- TRAILER CORNER
- X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
A new trailer of the upcoming X-Men movie was released recently and it featured more info than the last trailers. It gives us a more detailed exposition on what is going to happen in the movie. We also get to see better shots of the sentinels(which look dope by the way), I think it was a good thing that they didn’t go with the purple gigantic sentinels. We also see more of the other mutants in action e.g. Bobby Drake making an icy slide, Colossus armoring up( hope to see more of him, as I felt he was under used in the previous movies) and other interesting characters like Blink and Sunspot. We also get to see the older and younger Magneto and Xavier. All this have gotten me pumped for the release of this film.
Finally we get to see the trailer for the upcoming Hercules movie featuring Dwayne Johnson in the title role. The trailer seems to promise a lot, as firstly it seems that they would be sticking to the actual lore of Hercules being a demigod and completing the 12 labours. We see the Hydra and the Nemean Lion in the trailer, and both look beautifully terrifying though. Hopefully this will be the Hercules movie that we have been waiting for this year not the eye-gouging abomination that came out earlier this year.
- JUPITER ASCENDING
A new trailer for the upcoming Wachowski siblings sci-fi epic was released recently, which stars Mila Kunis as a house nanny who discovers that she is a descendant of galactic royalty. The movie also stars Channing Tatum and Sean Bean(hopefully he doesn’t die in this one). The visuals are incredible and the story looks simple enough, we wouldn’t want a repeat of complex and convoluting storylines like Cloud Atlas( which I thought was a good movie in its defense). The movie does seem to have a Matrix vibe as it still features the same principle of a special “one”. Which of these three movies have gotten you excited the most?
