Kingsman Sequel Due in September

I hadn’t realized Kingsman: The Secret Service was as successful as it was, making over $400 million worldwide. That explains why a sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is coming this September. As with the first movie, this one is directed by Matthew Vaughn and co-written by him and Jane Goldman. It stars Taron Egerton and carried over from the previous, Mark Strong and oddly, Colin Firth. I’m surprised, given events of the first film, he’s still in it, but there […]

X-Men: Apocalypse

I didn’t see X-Men: Apocalypse in theaters. This past summer, I was pretty burned out on superhero comic movies, and I wasn’t blown away by the trailer. But I like the concept of the X-Men, especially with the revamped prequel setup and cast. Overall, watching the movie made for an enjoyable weekend afternoon. I had a fun time with the film, particularly since KC and I could stop the movie and talk about comic history, or roll our eyes at […]

Captain America: Civil War Reflections

I had a fun time seeing Captain America: Civil War. The two and a half hours flew by, although when I left, I wasn’t as thrilled and excited as I have been after seeing other Marvel superhero movies. I think we’ve all become jaded and spoiled. A film like this — one that is really an Avengers movie, with so many superheroes battling each other under questionable premises — would have been amazing if released a few years ago, but […]

The new exhibit will open May 24 and feature “Harley Quinn’s original Belle Reve prison cell”, as well as additional props and costumes from Suicide Squad and costumes and Batcave props from BvS.
