Nerdcast Podcast Ep. 18 Topics
Jurassic World Discussion
Good god! CNN Money couldn’t have said it any better:
Overall, Universal’s Jurassic World pulled in the biggest global box office weekend with a historic $524.1 million around the world.
I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised though. This is a movie that we have been waiting for since Jurassic Park 3. This news kind of gets us wondering what the opening weekend will be like for movies such as Star Wars Episode VII and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The boys give their reviews on Chris Pratt, future installments, and the visual aspects of Jurassic World.
Daredevil was an extreme homerun for Netflix as well as Marvel. This show opened a door for the television and streaming industry. It generated hype and ideas in the minds of content creators regarding the future of online entertainment.
The original plan was to release season one of Daredevil and many other Marvel heroes; then they would lead up to an inevitable team up. It’s understandable that they would want to release season two of Daredevil before anything else so that they can keep the momentum. Adding the Punisher is a great way to get people back on the Marvel TV train.
Chiwetel Ejiofor has been casted as Baron Mordo in Doctor Strange. Chiwetel had an amazing performance in Twelve Years A Slave and many other movies. We’re very excited about this casting announcement and have high hopes and expectations for Doctor Strange.
Batman v Superman
Get a load of this! The Batman v Superman synopsis was released!
Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before. – IMDb
Holy crap people. You can’t make this up. This is history in the making…
Yeah, you heard that right. Kingsman 2 is coming. We don’t think that anyone is particularly upset with this revelation. Fan and critic responses to Kingsman were, for the most part, positive.
There’s not much else to say about this other than: Hell Yeah!
Asa Butterfield is not Spiderman. Some are pleased and some are not. All we can do for now is wait and see. Have hope my people!
Please don’t let him be old! Please don’t let him be old!
If you didn’t know what Martian is, the synopsis goes as follows:
During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. – IMDb
Steam is picking up on this movie and we love it.
