With the new movie Creed hitting theatres on November 25th, MGM and Warner Bros have just released a new TV spot and official poster for the film. Adonis Johnson (played by Michael B Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa. Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (played by Sylvester Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.
As many of you know a feature film adaptation of the mega popular mobile game Angry Birds is heading to the big screen, and the first trailer for it has now hit the web. The film will follow Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis), a citizen of an all-bird island who has problems controlling his anger. He’s not alone in this, as the spastic Chuck (Josh Gad) and the explosive Bomb (Danny McBride) are similarly incapable of managing their rage. It’s up to these three unlikely heroes to defend their island from the intrusion of the green pigs.
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens now just a few months away, Lucasfilm has released an immersive 360 video of Jakku on its Facebook page. The video allows you to look around all directions as you speed past the crashed Star Destroyer featured in the Force Awakens trailer.
A brand new poster for the upcoming Disney Animation film Zootopia has just hit the web. The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. Zootopia is directed by Byron Howard (Tangled, Bolt) and Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph, “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”). Zootopia opens in theaters on March 4, 2016.
OPENING THIS WEEK (brought to you by AMC Theatres)
First up is The Green Inferno. In The Green Inferno, a group of college students take their humanitarian protest from New York to the Amazon jungle only to be taken prisoner by the indigenous tribe they came to save. The Green Inferno marks Eli Roth’s return to directing for the big screen for the first time since his Hostel franchise, and tells the story of what happens when “slacktavism,” the well-meaning social media response to global catastrophes, turns into terror in the depths of the Amazon rainforest.
Next is the animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 2. Now that Dracula (Adam Sandler) has opened the Hotel Transylvania’s doors to humans, things are changing for the better; however, Drac is secretly worried that his half-human grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing his vampire side. So, while Mavis and Johnny are away, Drac enlists his friends to help him put the boy through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But things really get batty when Drac’s cantankerous, old-school dad (Mel Brooks) pays an unexpected visit.
Dance Man writes: Hello Guys love the show. Let’s just hypothetical say we know that Man of steel will get a sequel and we already know there will be a batman stand alone in the coming years. If that’s the case and Batman v superman lives on its own, what do you all think are the chances we get a BVS 2?
Daniel Robert Levsen writes: If Paramount got their hands on James Bond could you ever see a possible team up between MI:6 and the IMF?
Christian Ramirez writes: Hey guys I’m a big fan from NYC and watch you guys everyday. Last week you guys talked about how the Tropic Thunder movie saved Tom Cruise’s career and I agree. My question is do you guys know if there was ever any talk about a Les Grossman Movie. I think he was the best part of the movie and would love to see a movie based on him. Do you think we will ever see a Les Grossman movie or do you think it’s too late. Thanks and keep bringing the filthy.
