Let’s Watch Some Marvel Trailers

Marvel has released an ad for the return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on March 3 that emphasizes the women on the show. Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) is awesome (because she’s basically Wolverine), and I like deadpan Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg — not in this trailer), but … while I want to see more of Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki — have they called her that yet?), I don’t want to see Skye (Chloe Bennet) get powers, and too many of the plot […]

Kingsman: The Secret Service

I just got back from a free preview of the upcoming Kingsman: The Secret Service, due out February 13. I had fun, since there were twists I wasn’t expecting (although I didn’t like some of them). Then again, I didn’t remember much about the comic it was based on. It’s an action-adventure spy film, emphasis on the action. The plot threads are familiar: young aimless dude Eggsy (Taron Egerton) is taken under the wing of accomplished, well-dressed older man (Colin […]

Guardians of the Galaxy Featurette Clips

Although the home video release is next month, tomorrow marks the release of Guardians of the Galaxy digitally. And to promote it, Marvel has been releasing a ton of clips from the extra features. Here they are, starting with the Blu-ray release trailer. (I found it interesting that instead of critics, they use quotes from celebrities. A new frontier in marketing?) Here’s director and co-writer James Gunn talking about his vision, with the prelude of a fake video game. Of […]

The direct-to-home-video movie is described as “action-packed and hilarious”, and I have to admit, based on the trailer below, the alternate Justice League […]

Marvel’s Upcoming Film Slate

Following Warner’s superhero movie slate announcement a couple of weeks ago, Marvel has laid out specifics of their movie plans in this video. Or, as they put it, details of their “cinematic universe”, which sounds much more exciting! The visuals are mostly logos, and the first couple are expected. After next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron comes a Doctor Strange movie in late 2016. The Guardians of the Galaxy sequel has been moved to May 2017 so another Thor, Ragnarok, […]

Guardians of the Galaxy Out on Home Video for Holidays

Guardians of the Galaxy, like so many big movies these days, is getting a tiered release. You can rent or buy it digitally this month, on November 18, in HD or 3D formats. I’m curious to see it again, to see how it views differently now that I know the surprises … and how successful it was, as the number one movie of 2014. The home video release comes out in three formats next month, on December 9. There’s a […]

DC All Access Lists Upcoming Warner Superhero Films

DC All Access ran down an announcement of all the upcoming Warner/DC superhero movies in this segment: Or if you’d rather jump right to the news, here’s a screen shot of the final run-down: That’s two superhero movies a year for five years, starting in 2016, plus unscheduled solo Batman and Superman movies. Warner Brothers is clearly stepping up its competition with Marvel significantly; let’s hope they can also capture the cross-generational appeal of those films by combining action, characterization, […]
