Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is here, if you are anything like me you have been waiting for this since last year. I was there at 11:00 in theaters on Thursday ready to see the movie. I will admit no Katniss braid this time, but I did not do a good job with it last year because my hair is short.
To get ready for Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, coming out in less then a month I thought we would look at some of the new trailers that have been released.
The Return to District Twelve:
The movie will officially be in theaters on Nov 21, but tickets go on sale today.
After months of waiting the trailer for Mockingjay has finally arrived.
I have to say I am even more excited for the movie after seeing this trailer. It did a great job of showing some of the key elements in the story. Seeing Peeta working for the Capitol, Katniss fighting for him, the bombing, and of course all the fighting. There is a lot that happens in this story, I will do my best to not give any spoilers right now. I like what I have seen about life in District 13, it is completely different than life in the other districts. Effie in all grey, with no makeup, hair, or her usually clothes is still shocking. The action looks like it will be amazing in the movie, I am looking forward to that because there are a lot of action scenes in this movie. I am very happy with this trailer and cannot wait to see the movie on November 21st.
It’s been a little while, but as summer winds down, and Wizard World approaches, nerd news will be
Kicking up again soon.
Today, in our quest to be nerdy and girly, we bring you another fandom-based nail art tutorial.
Let me start off by saying, as a fan of “Parks and Recreation,” it was delightful seeing Andy Dwyer in space.
Although there are certainly a good number of goofball moments, Chris Pratt’s performance was a great balance of criminal, hero, dork, and suave muthafucka. His Starlord really rather perfectly captures the qualities of the Everyman.
And then there’s this.
Nathan Fillion hinted months ago that he might have a cameo in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. It has been confirmed by director James Gunn that Fillion will have a cameo role in the movie. This does not come as a shock to many people since Fillion has had a role some of Gunn’s other works. I am extremely excited to hear about Fillion’s cameo in the movie because I rather like him as an actor. His small role in Percy Jackson as Hermes was an amazing, he stole that scene. I am very curious to see what his will do with this role.
People have been speculating that Fillion might be playing the character of Nova, Gunn has confirmed that will not be happening. While Fillion will be in the movie he will not be taking on such an important role. Some people speculate that is because of his lead role on Castle he does not have the time to do it. This could be very true if the filming times conflict, but let’s be fair many TV stars have filmed a movie during the summer hiatus. It could also be because Gunn does not want to put Fillion on all of his movies. A lot of directors are like that, come on George Lucas was horribly against having Harrison Ford in Star Wars and Indiana Jones because he did not want to get a rep for always using the same people. Maybe Gunn decided that he should do some movie without Fillion having such a large role.
Whatever the reason, we do now that Fillion will have a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy. As to what role/character he will be playing no one knows. Many people are thinking he might play a role similar to the one he had on Firefly.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be out on Aug 1st.
Well we have a new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles out
I will admit this trailer makes me feel a bit better about the movie, not a lot but more so in the sense that the turtles personalities don’t seem to be messed up. It looks like they kept the personalities true to each turtle, which I am happy about, because if they had messed that up it would have been horrible. Otherwise nothing else really seems all that great in this movie, well the action scenes do look really good, I will say that.
Can we talk about the transformer that is in the movie?
Seriously what was the point of making Shredder look like that, I swear Michael Bay is still trying to capitalize on his Transformers success. While Transformers was a really successful franchise for Bay, this is not Transformers there was no reason that I can think of to turn Shredder into a Transformer. Well we all knew that there would be a good chance of Michael Bay messing up this movie.
What do you think will the movie be good or bad?
