The Transformers Story Continues with Transformers: The Last Knight

Transformers LAst Knight

Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth.

As we wait for the latest Transformers movie to hit the big screen fans must be wondering what this latest movie will have to offer that they haven’t seen before. In an interview with Empire, producer Ian Bryce explained that Transformers: The Last Knight will take the action to new locations and create new visuals not see in previous Transformers films

There’s a new style of action for director, Michael Bay – “He’s got new scale of story and character in this one. It’s a bit different this time because I think some of what Mike is known for is what we call spitting metal, cars being ratcheted. There’s quite a bit less of that this time. There’s definitely some car stuff, but we’re probably a bit less focused on that this time. He’s moved his action into a different place… Read More

Wonder Woman – is she the Superhero we’re all rooting for?

Wonder Woman (1)

Can the first DC movie of 2017, Wonder Woman, staring Gal Gadot, bring us a feminist hero we will truly root for?

Wonder Woman is supposed to be different from other DC superheros; Superman racked by doubt, Batman, jaded and motivated by malice. This lady embodies a very feminine sense of peace, justice and what star Gal Gadot has described as “emotional intelligence”.

This, the first movie of director Patty Jenkins, is set against the backdrop of the youthful superhero’s first interaction with mankind during the First World War. But even this very green Diana of Themyscira needs to retain the character’s traditional bearing of dignity and decency… read more from The Guardian

Jack Sparrow is back –though not quite as we remember him!

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN SALAZAR_S REVENGE

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: SALAZAR’S REVENGE. The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon.

Joachim Ronning, co-director of the upcoming movie, said that the swashbuckling adventurer that we know and love isn’t the same old Jack.

“He’s lost his luck. And luck was a big part of his lifestyle. He’s lost his way. He’s lost his horizon. He’s not on the ocean anymore when we find him. He’s a land pirate and he’s miserable. He’s alone. He’s not Captain Jack anymore, he’s just Jack.”

Whether this new approach to the series’ lynchpin will help the franchise return to its former glory will of course remain to be seen, but at this point in proceedings, a different angle on the character might not be the worst thing in the world.

As long as he gets his mojo back at some point of course… Read more

From back alleys to legends – Meet King Arthur

king arthur (1)

The young Arthur runs the back passages of Londonium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to make up his mind.

This new King Arthur movie, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is filmed in director, Guy Richie style, even though original intention was to make a somewhat more classic film. That idea didn’t last long and this latest Richie movie is filled with his usual quote cuts, fast pace and tongue in cheek humour.

Charlie Hunman who plays Arthur told Entertainment Weekly “It was challenging, to begin with because there was an uncertainty about the tone. Guy’s [initial] intention was to make something that was outside of his wheelhouse, and make a more classic, straightforward, and somewhat somber film — which is obviously not what we ended up with.” Read more…

Something weird is happening… Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (1)

If you’re looking forward to the latest happenings in the Galaxy, you may find this news story on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 very interesting…

For a while, we’ve been hearing that not all of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 takes place in space. New details courtesy of an extended skit on Jimmy Kimmel last night, however, have given us a few more details that might explain a few things as to why we’ll be heading to Earth in the new movie.

In last night’s show, Kimmel sent his right-hand-man Guillermo to the set of the movie for a potential cameo role. The clip is mostly behind-the-scenes interactions with the cast of the show, but near the end… Read more from Gizmodo

Carrie Fisher to appear in final Star Wars Movie

Carrie Fisher

Let’s face it Star Wars wouldn’t be Star Wars without Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia.

After months of speculation about Carrie’s future in the sci-fi saga, Todd Fisher, Carrie’s brother, has revealed that Disney bosses want to bring Princess Leia back for Episode 9. And he said he and Carrie’s daughter, Billie Lourd, have granted the studio rights to use recent footage for the finale. It is understood that CGI will not be used to recreate Leia.

“Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t,” said Fisher… “She’s as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan — when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful,” he said. “I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue. I’m not the only part in that equation, but I think the people deserve to have her. She’s owned by them.”
