Second Opinion – Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, 2017

Written and Directed by Rian Johnson.

Starring Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran, Benicio del Toro, Billie Lourd, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, Jimmy Vee, Tim Rose, Warwick Davis, Hermione Corfield and Veronica Ngo.

Synopsis:

Having taken her first steps into the Jedi world, Rey joins Luke Skywalker on an adventure with Leia, Finn and Poe that unlocks mysteries of the Force and secrets of the past.

One of the big complaints about Star Wars: The Force Awakens was that it felt like an old band having one last run with a new singer (say, Queen for example). They played the old hits, the stuck to the same chord structures and they didn’t try anything too new in case people just wanted to hear the favourites again.

Justice League Review

Justice League is a “step in the right direction” in that instead of tumbling down an upwards-climbing escalator on an endless loop, DC has now managed to brace itself on a bottom step, clutching the handrail in a dizzied, confused daze. Patty Jenkins blazed a trail for franchise improvement with Wonder Woman, but this Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon double-team steps right back into the Dceu’s own mismanaged stink.

Forced “humor” clashes with Snyder’s brand of glib intensity, action sequences rage with no captivation, backstory establishment gets tossed aside – but yes, it’s far more “fun” than Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. For whatever that’s worth? Marvel cultivated their rivaling luminescent, “bright side” universe through patience and genuine charisma – DC just wants to bottle the same magic, hellbent on replicating an existing formula without understanding.

The Justice League’s first venture is to prevent Steppenwolf (Ciarán Hinds), a cosmic warlord,

Thor: Ragnarok hammers out $14.5 million in domestic takings on Thursday

Heading towards a predicted $100m+ domestic total at the Us box office this weekend, Thor: Raganrok delivered an estimated $14.5m in Thursday night previews. That places it in seventh position in the Marvel Cinematic Universe preview chart (see below), just behind Spider-Man: Homecoming, which debuted to $15.4m earlier this year. Spidey went on to gross $117m for the weekend, so the God of Thunder should be there-or-there-abouts when the dust settles on Monday.

Avengers: Age of Ultron – $27.6m preview ($191.27m opening) Captain America: Civil War – $25m preview ($179.14m opening) Marvel’s The Avengers – $18.7m from midnight screenings ($207.44m opening) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – $17m preview ($146.5m opening) Iron Man 3 – $15.6m preview ($174.14m opening) Spider-Man: Homecoming – $15.4m preview ($117m opening) Thor: Ragnarok – $14.5m preview Guardians of the Galaxy – $11.2m preview ($94.32m opening) Captain America: The Winter Soldier – $10.3m preview ($95.02m opening) Doctor Strange – $9.4m preview ($85m opening

Taika Waititi debunks Thor: Ragnarok runtime rumour

The director of Thor: Ragnarok has debunked a rumour regarding the movie’s runtime.

Fans are pretty excited at the prospect of Thor: Ragnarok, with the various teasers, trailers, and images suggesting something a little bit different from the character and the Thor franchise.

One question fans have about the upcoming film is in regards to its runtime. A recent rumour has been circulated that the movie will come in at 2hrs and 10 minutes – a pretty standard time for a blockbuster movie.

But Taika Waititi, director of Thor: Ragnarok, has quickly put the rumour to bed.

Rumor: The run-time for #ThorRagnarok is reportedly 2 hours and 10 minutes long! https://t.co/jQ2v8t9vkq pic.twitter.com/ERsHp2SynY

Thor: Ragnarok’s “he’s a friend from work” line came from a Make-a-Wish kid

A couple of weeks ago, director Taika Waititi suggested that up to a whopping 80% of Thor: Ragnarok is improvisation, and now Chris Hemsworth has revealed that one of – if not the – most memorable moments from the first trailer falls into that category, and it seems we have a child from the Make-a-Wish Foundation to thank.

“We had a young kid, a Make-a-Wish kid on set that day,” revealed Hemsworth, discussing the scene where The Incredible Hulk makes his grand entrance into the arena to square off against the God of Thunder. “He goes, ‘You know, you should say, “He’s a friend from work!”‘”

Hopefully the witty youngster is getting some good commission from all those T-shirts…

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard

Marvel Comics to kill off your favorite mutant this September

  • JoBlo
Get ready to say goodbye to your favorite adamantium-clawed mutant! (and save the Spoiler! alerts. It's a comic. It's called "Death of Wolverine." There's no mystery to it.) Created by Len Wein and John Romita, Sr., the character made his first appearance in The Incredible Hulk no. 181 in 1974 and has been a staple in Marvel lore for more than four decades and crossing over into multiple comic titles, movies, toys, etc., becoming a cultural icon....

Wolverine creator Len Wein has made more from 'Dark Knight' trilogy

Wolverine creator Len Wein has made more from 'Dark Knight' trilogy
Wolverine co-creator Len Wein has said that he has received more royalties from the Dark Knight trilogy than all the X-Men films combined.

The writer has earned more from his minor character Lucius Fox in Christopher Nolan's films than he has from the Canadian mutant, who has currently appeared in six films and starred in five of them.

Wein said that it is frustrating that he has not been credited for Hugh Jackman's character in 20th Century Fox's franchise.

"It's less frustrating for the characters I created at DC," he told the Los Angeles Times.

"Money comes with the anonymity, at least. I have contracts that guarantee me some small piece of the action. Lucius Fox has earned me a great deal more money than Wolverine ever has, although I will say that for the latest film Marvel did send me a nice cheque."

Wolverine Creator Len Wein On Creating The Canadian Superhero And Hugh Jackman

Sure, on the comic book side of the X-Men films, Chris Claremont presently finds himself recieving a lot of press recently for "The Wolverine" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" as the writer of the storylines that inspired those films. But let us not forget those that actually created the characters, like Len Wein, who introduced Wolverine(along with John Romita, Sr. and Roy Thomas) in 1974's "The Incredible Hulk #180". Said Wein on the current Wolverine film, "I loved it. We’re going to go see it again this week, in fact. My wife and my family have not seen it yet, so I’m going to take them to see it this weekend. It is in very many ways not really a superhero film; I thought that makes it spectacular. It’s really a character study. There’s all the superhero action you could ask for, but at the

Wolverine's Canada Connection: The 'X-Men' Favourite's Northern History

With all due respect to Captain Canuck, when it comes to Canadian superheroes, none have more international recognition than Wolverine. Because despite being played by an Aussie, Hugh Jackman's fan favourite character has popped up in every instalment in Fox's blockbuster "X-Men" franchise (including a cameo in "First Class"). And now with the release of "The Wolverine," he gets his second solo film.

Directed by James Mangold, Logan's latest adventure picks up where "X-Men: The Last Stand" left off, with the loner anti-hero battling the ghost of Jean Grey (Famke Janssen) and his immortality as much as the real foes he finds during a trip to Japan. The Wolverine movie fans have long been hoping for, this latest outing is a more intimate and much improved return for everyone's favourite perpetually grouchy mutant.

Yet while the movies have always played fast and loose with comic book canon, one element

'The Wolverine' makeover: New claws, no costume, and a less-nutty haircut
The clothes make the man, but in the case of Wolverine, the claws make the mutant. Hugh Jackman’s forever ferocious antihero returns to the screen July 26 with his second solo adventure, and die-hard fans will notice right away that his gleaming metal talons have gotten a makeover.

“Yes, we retooled them a little,” director James Mangold said during an interview at his offices on the Fox lot. “I found that in some of the comics illustrations that I really liked the most, they had these bevel cuts. They were faceted, that would be the best way to describe them.

DVD Review - Hulk vs. Wolverine (2009)

Hulk vs. Wolverine, 2009.

Directed by Frank Paur.

Featuring the voice talents of Fred Tatasciore, Steve Blum, Bryce Johnson, Nolan North, Mark Acheson, Janyse Jaud, Colin Murdock and Tom Kane.

Synopsis:

Despatched into the Canadian wilderness to stop The Hulk's latest rampage, Wolverine is captured by Weapon X, who plan to erase Bruce Banner's memory and turn his monsterous alter-ego into an unstoppable weapon...

Despite the fact that Marvel are head and shoulders above DC when it comes to live-action movies, they've never quite managed to match the quality of their comic book rivals when it comes to the realm of animation. Still, there are a few hidden gems tucked away, such as Lionsgate's superb animated short Hulk vs. Wolverine, which may just be Marvel Animation's finest hour. Originally arriving direct-to-dvd back in 2009 as part of the double-feature Hulk Vs. (where it was joined by the weaker Hulk vs. Thor), Hulk vs. Wolverine

""In Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., Hulk has long fought alone to protect a world that sees him as a monster, but his friend Rick Jones has taken it upon himself to film the world-saving exploits of Big Green and his team to change that image.

Emmy Hopeful: Monica Potter - 'Parenthood'

Emmy Hopeful: Monica Potter - 'Parenthood'
From day one, Parenthood has been TV's go-to-source for cathartic crying. But after three seasons of happy and sad tears, NBC's family drama reached an emotional zenith in season four when Kristina Braverman was diagnosed with breast cancer. What followed was the single best portrayal of the physical, mental, spiritual and communal toll cancer takes on the afflicted and their kin.

And while much of the credit must go to Parenthood's bravely cliche-allergic writers, the true success of the arc lies in the ovation-worthy, ugly-cry-extracting, raw-nerve performance Monica Potter delivered in every single episode. Those are three reasons (on a innumerable list) why she is poised to follow her Critics Choice Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama with a matching Emmy! 

I caught up with the uncontested best crier on television to talk about performance pressure, the welcomed burden of bringing to life a(nother) real-world disease and decompressing from delivering the best work

Disney and Marvel Create Two Team Up Cartoons Featuring The Avengers and The Hulk

  • Boomtron
Disney Xd is once again teaming up with Marvel to bring about new animated series after the success of Ultimate Spider-Man. Milking the success of the summer blockbuster, The Avengers, two new shows have been picked up to join the Marvel Universe block in Summer 2013: Marvel’s Avengers Assemble and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. Both series will feature the Hulk, which is perfect considering he doesn’t look to be getting a new live-action movie anytime soon, so he deserves a little extra attention in the other forms of media.

Avenger’s Assemble will feature the same team from The Avengers movie, with the addition of Falcon. Adrian Pasdar will do the voice of Iron Man just as he did on Ultimate Spider-Man and the Iron Man anime series. Fred Tatsciore will voice the Hulk, Roger Craig Smith doing Captain America, Travis Willingham as Thor, Troy Baker as Hawkeye,

Five Celebrity Superhero Voice Overs You Didn't Know About

by Joel Hanek

These days it's impossible to release any animated feature without at least thirty names billed on the movie poster and the smog of its promotional campaigns polluting all of late night television.

But not unlike their superhero alter egos, once upon a time celebrity voice actors remained anonymous behind their animated masks. Most of us remember when our minds were blown by the revelation that James Avery, aka Uncle Phil from "Fresh Prince," provided the voice of Shredder on "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."

Let's take a look at some lesser known, random, and nonsensical voice castings in the superhero universe.

5. Brian Austin Green as The Human Torch ("The Marvel Action Hour: The Fantastic Four", 1994)

Before Chris Evans donned the flame-retardant spandex as Johnny Storm, former teen heartthrob and present day Mr. Megan Fox, Brian Austin Green, was the first person in decades to bring life to The Human Torch.

DVD Review - Green Lantern (2011)

Green Lantern, 2011.

Directed by Martin Campbell.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Mark Strong, Angela Bassett, Tim Robbins, Temuera Morrison, Taiki Waititi, Jay O. Sanders, Geoffrey Rush, Michael Clarke Duncan, Peter Sarsgaard and Clancy Brown.

Synopsis:

The first human to be selected for the Green Lantern Corps, test-pilot Hal Jordon soon finds himself as Earth’s last hope for survival when the planet is threatened by the destructive entity known as Parallax.

It’s fair to say that outside of Christopher Nolan’s Batman franchise, Warner Bros. haven’t exactly set the world alight with their stable of DC Comics superheroes as of late. In fact, their output over the past decade or so has been anything but stellar (see Catwoman, Superman Returns, Jonah Hex), while the studio’s one decent effort – Zack Snyder's Watchmen – was never really going to be anything more than a cult hit (I mean, could

Marvel teases “Captain America” Blu-ray and DVD

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Marvel Studios unveiled a teaser trailer and a full press release for its upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of Joe Johnston’s summer hit “Captain America: The First Avenger,” and as expected, the set will have a significant tease for next summer’ “The Avengers,” currently being shot by Joss Whedon.

Here’s the trailer. The presser follows below:

As the clip reveals, the disc will take you deep behind the scenes of this Marvel origin story, showing how Johnston shrunk the buff Chris Evans to play skinny Steve Rogers and setting up the character’s pivotal role in Whedon’s ensemble.

Marvel also recently released “Thor” on Blu-ray and DVD, completing the unofficial prequel kit that sets the table for “The Avengers.” Now collectors can bounce from “Thor” to “Iron Man,” from “The Incredible Hulk” to “Captain America” to see how the pieces fit.

Movie Review: Captain America: The First Avenger (2011): Joe Johnston

Captain America The First Avenger Review. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) movie review, directed by Joe Johnston and starring Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stans, Dominic Cooper, Toby Jones, Neal McDonough, and Derek Luke.

Captain America: The First Avenger’s first act and part of its second act are a nearly perfect superhero film; almost giving birth to another resplendent Iron Man but one that would have eclipsed its predecessor.

The first act consistently gains momentum as World War II rages on in the background and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) need to enlist and “get into the fight” swells. This mentality is a result of a pre-television era where war news footage and photos showing the realities of war are not available, those sustaining the glamour of warfare instead of cultivating stark, universal repugnance towards it.
