Batman v superman
Mad Max: Fury Road
and the good!
Guillermo del Toro knows how to work a crowd with a solo appearance and footage from his next film, Crimson Peak. This haunted house story was described as “what happens to a female lead after her romance, after getting her guy.” It is a beautiful-looking film with an intriguing plot chock full of del Toro’s twisted fairy-tale touch. The teaser didn't give much away but we did see Tom Hiddleston in his Victorian get-up and Mia Wasikowska shaking in her bed as a long, black hand slowly reaches down to grab her. This is certainly one to keep your eyes on!
Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For
Entertainment Weekly's Women Who kick ass
They opened up with the cast of Ant-Man, including never before seen footage. As of right now, it looks like a very tiny heist movie, with Hank Pym giving directions over bluetooth to young Ant-Man Scott Lang as he struggles to ride an ant to his rendezvous point. It was interesting they chose to show footage over a trailer. I think we would have liked to see a trailer to get the overall gist of the tone of the movie but seeing Ant-Man in action was cool. There was also a surprise announcement that Evangeline Lilly has been cast as Hope Pym. For now, we are reserving judgement on this movie.
The scene opens with the Avengers relaxing at Tony Stark's pad, most likely finishing off a couple of drinks each. Thor sets his hammer down on the coffee table and challenges them to lift it, if they think they are worthy enough to do so. Tony Stark tries, once alone, and once with his Ironman gauntlet. Bruce Banner tries to "get angry" but to no avail. Captain America budges the hammer just a tiny bit, to Thor's sudden worry that he might be stripped of his Thor title.
The festivities are cut short, however, as a mangled robot hobbles in, Ultron voiced by James Spader, proclaiming that none of them are worthy and the screen darkens. Now, we thought this was good enough for us but Marvel had another surprise as the action starts up again with a full-blown trailer for Avengers 2. Ironman fights Hulk in his Hulkbuster suit. Black Widow tears down the street on an electric Captain America Harley. We see Ultron in another form, this time sleek and finished. Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver put up a terrific fight of their own. And finally, it ends with Tony Stark looking over a broken Captain America shield and the bodies of the other Avengers.
Hats off to you Marvel, you owned the night and the footage only builds our confidence for 2015!
Oh and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is getting released July 28th, 2017.
