(Review) MAGGIE is a subtle, slow-burning zombie meditation

Maggie is less zombie movie than you might expect

The idea of pitting Arnold Schwarzenegger against zombies is one I’m surprised hasn’t played out on film already. As someone who was hoping to see the aging action star go balls-to-the-wall against the undead, I was a little disappointed in what Maggie actually was. Schwarzenegger dual-wielding double barrel shotguns against hordes of zombies this is not. That said, the movie is a quiet meditation focusing more on losing loved ones and the transformation rather than mass hysteria and the fight for survival we’re used to seeing. Maggie is going to polarize its audience and lose points for the slow-burn setup, but it might find a home with fans of the genre looking for a quiet new entry.

Read a few more thoughts and the rest of my short Maggie review the jump.

Marvel’s Ant-Man movie gets its mandatory character posters

Ant-Man is this year’s Marvel oddball (last year’s being Guardians of the Galaxy), with fans of the franchise hoping for the best but skeptical and expecting the worst. It’ll be interesting to see where the movie slots itself into the overall expanded universe. Until we can catch it in theaters mid-July, a new batch of character posters for Ant-Man will have to tide us over. Each tent-pole blockbuster usually gets a handful of character posters, and at least these are trying to have a bit of fun.

That’s Paul Rudd‘s character poster up above, and you can check out posters featuring Corey Stoll, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, Bobby Cannavale, and T.I.

Johnny Depp’s Whitey Bulger biopic gets a new poster

Black Mass, the upcoming Whitey Bulger biopic starring Johnny Depp, couldn’t look more enticing. Believe it or not, that’s Depp up above in the newest poster for the movie, and the man looks insane once you see his eyes. The cast is full of heavy hitters like Joel Edgerton, Peter Saarsgard, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Corey Stoll, and so many more, and the tone of the film is dramatically terrifying. If you haven’t already, definitely give the first trailer for Black Mass a watch for the atmosphere. Then, follow up with the second trailer for the movie to fill you in on some of the details fueling the fiction of the true story behind one of America’s most notorious organized crime figures.

AMERICAN ULTRA trailers previews newest stoner comedy action mashup

Eisenberg & Stewart get stoned in American Ultra trailer

The first full-length trailers for American Ultra flew by a few weeks ago, and here they are in all their puff puff pass goodness. If you’re a fan of movies like Pineapple Express where the pot-fueled antics are mixed in with plenty of ridiculous action, this one’s right up your alley. I can just imagine couch-locked friends thinking up a scenario in which a deadbeat stoner is actually a government asset just waiting to be activated, which is pretty much the plot of American Ultra. Throw in unlikely candidates like Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and even a little Topher Grace, and we’re in for one weird weed movie.

If that sounds intriguing to you, check out the first two full-length trailers (green band and red band) after the jump.

The Walk trailer sees Joseph Gordon-Levitt attempt high-wire act

The first trailer for the upcoming high-wire movie The Walk from Robert Zemeckis advertised the film’s 3D and spectacle as much as it teased Joseph Gordon-Levitt walking between the Twin Towers. It seemed the studio/director/creatives behind the project are trying to sell the spectacle as much as they are the true life story. Fortunately, a new full-length trailer for the film fills us in on some of the details behind the daredevil feat, and it’s a doozy. Gordon-Levitt’s French accent is kind of fun, and the movie looks like a nice blend of optimistic adventure and dramatic suspense. Plus, Zemeckis appears to be taking plenty of opportunities to wow with 3D where he can, which can be an exciting element if done well.

Watch a first full-length trailer and check out a new poster for The Walk after the jump.
