What? Someone had to watch it. Jordan gives his quick review on the new Arnold movie, Terminator Genisys. We won’t be going into the details today completely because next week most of the cast will be on air.
Batman v Superman
We got a sweet preview of what could happen at Comic-Con this week from the first official Batman v Superman’s magazine cover! The featured magazine, Entertainment Weekly, also showed off some of the first stills from the movie. Two of the stills were of Diana and Bruce dancing at a ball together and of Lex Luthor with a full head of luscious locks. To an average movie goer, these stills would appear to be new and fresh, but to any longtime fan of the characters, these images remind them of so many other impactful moments in comics. Our expectations have been raised for this universe and this only speaks good things about Hall H at Comic-Con.
Well, we should all just be happy that this movie even exists. At least we know that Batman can turn his neck in the suit.
Star Trek Beyond
Star Trek Beyond is an upcoming sequel to the 2013 film Star Trek: Into Darkness. The franchise seems to be taking a more “adventurous” approach after Simon Pegg made the statement that,
[W]e just want to take it forward with the spirit of the TV show. And it’s a story about frontierism and adventure and optimism and fun, and that’s where we want to take it, you know. Where no man has gone before – where no one has gone before, sensibly corrected for a slighter more enlightened generation. But yeah, that’s the mood at the moment.
This revelation made many fans excited after the controversial 2013 instalment. In fact, what got Star Trek so popular was the TV show. It only makes sense that in a desperate time they would call back on their roots. Trekkies can’t be more excited to see what direction the story flows in and how exactly the delicate situation the franchise is on. With Star Wars constantly fighting for the target audience, it’s getting harder and harder for Star Trek to pull tickets their way.
Comic Con is just around the corner and it feels as if DC is going to be the focus on everyone’s attention. Many top studios are not attending this year, opting to use their own resources for media attention. We’re hoping that Warner Brothers uses this time not only to focus on Batman v Superman, but to give some attention to another movie that is coming soon: Suicide Squad.
It almost seems as if this is DC’s golden opportunity that comes once in a blue moon. There are so many options on what they could do and so many movies to pick and choose from.
