INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE trailer two rounds up the cast and goes bang real good

independence day resurgence movie trailer 2

Second Independence Day: Resurgence trailer makes waves

A new trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence is making the rounds, and it continues to preview a movie that’s a mix of forced nostalgia and new blockbuster bang bang. Unfortunately, there’s a lot in this new trailer that can be used to deduce plot points and character deaths, so consider yourself warned. That said, I’m on the fence about Independence Day: Resurgence. On one hand, it feels like a sequel strictly churned out to cash in on an old property and fill it with young, hot faces (which is nothing new, it’s just routine at this point). On the other hand, I’ll admit to being a bit excited over the prospect of more Goldblum, an aged but still noble Bill Pullman as former President Whitmore, a Starship Troopersesque group of young kids killing bugs, and crazy scientist Brent Spiner. So, I’ll have to check this one out for curiosities sake.

Jason Bourne trailer sees a strong cast navigating deep sequel territory

Jason Bourne is, believe it or not, the fifth movie in the Bourne franchise. The first trailer for the movie finally dropped, and it’s more punching, running, and control room than it is revealing in any way. That said, if you’re a fan of the franchise and felt the last Bourne movie was missing something (namely Matt Damon), this one’s most likely made for you. Director Paul Greengrass is returning, and his brand of action is sure to be on full display. That’s a mixed bag, depending on how you feel about the movies.

THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN trailer teases a shoot-em-up western remake from Antoine Fuqua

The Magnificent Seven trailer assembles a few familiar faces

Yesterday saw a handful of first look images pop up for Antoine Fuqua‘s remake of The Magnificent Seven, and today a trailer followed. The first trailer makes the movie look more shoot-em-up and action driven than it does meditative and dramatic, but that’s to be expected. That said, we’ve got a handful of always entertaining actors joining forces to bring us back to the Wild West, and The Magnificent Seven is sure to attract an audience when it’s released in theaters this fall. Just the mention of Denzel Washington dressed in black and Chris Pratt doing a flying 180 while firing a revolver is enough to fill seats, but film fans are also probably pretty curious how the property is being treated. For a remake of a remake, there’s some history here.

(Review) Disney’s THE JUNGLE BOOK is a solid CGI showcase that’s not without its flaws

jungle book movie review disney 2016

The Jungle Book is a beautiful “live action” adaptation

The Disney camp is going full steam ahead with their commitment to live-action remakes of classic animated movies. The latest in what’s promised to be a long line of reboots is the Jon Favreau-directed, CGI-heavy big screen adaptation of The Jungle Book, and the new movie proves to be an exceptional showcase of modern digital animation. That said, the weakest element in 2016’s first big Disney spectacle (don’t forget, Marvel is now Disney’s baby) is the human aspect, and I can’t help long for an all-animal Lion King movie in the same style.

As a family friendly live-action update to one of the most cherished animated classics, The Jungle Book is sure to please most audiences. It’s cute, beautiful, surprising, frightening, and inspiring while staying true to both the original Disney classic as well as the Rudyard Kipling source material. Not without a few faults, The Jungle Book previews a new wave of anthropomorphic animal drama aimed at exploring humanity’s moral dilemmas.
