Duck Duck Goose –family fun movie for 2018

duck-duck-goose

There’s nothing better than a family trip to the movies… especially when it’s a comedy animation movie from the makers of Shrek! Duck Duck Goose is making a splash Easter 2018.

In Duck Duck Goose, a high-flying bachelor goose named Peng (voiced by Jim Gaffigan) is injured in flight and finds himself saddled with two adorably hilarious and demanding ducklings (voiced by Zendaya and Lance Lim), on a long journey south that will turn this scrappy threesome into a family.

Peng is a freewheeling bachelor goose who’d rather do anything than practice for the upcoming migration. He thinks he’s better than everyone else and spends his time attempting crazy stunts at even crazier speeds. In one such stunt, Peng flies too near the ground, hits a flock of ducklings and separates brother and sister, Chao and Chi, from the rest. In this unlikely meeting, Peng will begin a journey that will break his wing and nearly break his heart as he grows to understand the power of unconditional love in the form of two ducklings, who likewise grow to see him as the best father they could ever have.

Here’s a trailer for you to take a sneak preview

Watch out for pop legend Elton John in Kingsman: The Golden Circle!

Kingsman - Elton

Not only do we have Colin Firth’s mysterious return from the dead in this Kingsman 2 movie, there will also be an appearance from flamboyant pop star, Sir Elton John!

The adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons’s comic book introduced us to the titular group of superspies and Colin Firth’s badass secret agent in Kingsman: The Secret Service, back in 2014. Now it’s back, with a sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, with another wise-cracking, ass-kicking, all-star cast, including Halle Berry, Channing Tatum and Jeff Bridges.

When the Kingsman headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy.

Digital Spy asked Eggsy actor Taron Egerton what Elton John brings to the movie…

“You’ve never seen him like this, he’s hilarious in it,” Taron told us.

“It’s quite significant, as well. It’s not a walk-on. He’s there. He’s in the movie.”

Are you ready for IT? The most terrifying horror movie this year

It (2)

Are you ready to watch IT? It’s pretty scary, even Stephen King wasn’t prepared for how good IT is!  Of course it will be no suprise that a movie about a killer clown is going to be rather dark and scary – when you combine this with the legendary horror writer Stephen King then you know something disturbing and terrifying is going to happen.

In fact British actor 24 year old Will Poulter, currently starring with Star Wars leading man John Boyega in Detroit, a particularly dark and, yes, disturbing look at race relations in inner city America. It sounds like he can handle anything and yet originally cast as Pennywise Poulter pulled out of the movie because it was too much for him.

In the most disturbing scene in the latest trailer for IT, a bathroom erupts in huge spurts of blood, gushing upwards to soak the ceiling and walls, as well as the terrified figure kneeling in terror… That might be just too much for most people!

Detroit – A long watch but a worthwhile watch

Detroit (1)

Detroit, a superbly crafted movie by director Kathryn Bigelow, is one of the most unmissable, frightening, shocking films this summer. This gritty, uncompromising story is based around the true events of the summer of 1967 where three young African American me were murdered at the Algiers Motel in Detroit.

The movie Detroit uses a mix of archive footage from the events of 1967 with some incredible cinematography from Barry Ackroyd (Jason Bourne, Captain Phillips). This meshes seamlessly, and when coupled with Kathryn Bigelow’s superb direction creates an ultra-realistic feel and literally puts you in the middle of the horrifying situation.

On that fateful evening, Larry Reed (Algee Smith) lead singer of the professional, black R&B group The Dramatics, along with his friend Fred Temple (Jacob Latimore) are involved in an incident which saw his tour bus attacked by rioters. Separated from the rest of his band member, Larry takes Fred to the Algers motel, where they rent a room for the night. It is there where they meet two white girls, Julie (Hannah Murray) and Karen (Kaitlyn Dever), who introduce them to their friends Carl Cooper (Jason Michell) and Aubrey Pollard (Nathan Davis Jr)… Read more from The Hollywood News

Why does a hitman need a bodyguard?

hitmans bodyguard

A reasonable question to ask – the hitman is a key witness in a trial against one of the world’s worst dictators. Perhaps you don’t buy that – either way The Hitman’s Bodyguard starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson with their foul-mouthed chemistry results in a live-action cartoon-like comedy… the kind where someone blows a cannonball-shaped hole through Wile E. Coyote’s abdomen or a stick of dynamite reduces him to a pile of cinders, and the next thing you know, he’s up and chasing the Road Runner again. This style doesn’t always work of course but the chemistry between Reynolds and Jackson makes for a delightfully ridiculous screwball action comedy.

The premise is simple: Jackson plays the hitman, Darius Kincaid, Reynolds plays his bodyguard, Michael Bryce, and they both need to get from London to the Hague without getting killed. That’s easier said than done as a seemingly inexhaustible army of Belarusian mercenaries do their best to rub them both out (to the extent of firing bazookas down Amsterdam canals) in order to prevent Kincaid from giving testimony against genocidal warlord Vladislav Dukhovich (Gary Oldman, projecting pure evil from his eyes, while the rest of his face is hidden behind prosthetic facial scars)… read more from Variety.com
