Okay, on a complete whim I decided to go check Fifty Shades of Grey out during opening weekend by myself I might add. I was the first time I have ever seen a movie by myself, I have to say not as bad of an experience as I thought it would be.
Here we are at the start of a new year and of course that means new movies are coming out this year, I put together a list of some of the geek movies we are looking forward to seeing this year.
Jupiter Ascending: 6
All I can think every time I see this trailer is that it looks like another movie that Sean Bean is going to die in. The visuals, special effects and CGI look great, but that is about it, nothing is saying please see me.
Fifty Shades of Grey: 13
Ok, probably not all that geeky but is has its fan base, since I wasted part of my life reading the books, I would actually go see the movie. Now, I am not going opening weekend or anything like that, unless I have friends that wanted to. I would get around at some point heading to theater to check it out, just because I want to see how they did it. Its probably better then the book because they would have to cut things out.
Not really all that thrilled with this, but these kinds of movies are rarely my thing. With that being said I will probably see it as some point because Huge Jackman is in it; I watch just about everything he does and I am always hoping to see him shirtless.
I would go see this only because its a live action version of Cinderella and it looks pretty interesting. They are actually going with the fairy tale version so I am wouldn’t mind going to see this.
Divergent: Insurgent: 20
Well this has to make the list because well Divergent is a series that a lot of people like. I have yet to attempt it but that is because I am Hunger Games person and I am really can only handle one post apocalyptic obsession at a time.
Avengers: Age of Ultron: 1
Do I need to even say if I am going to see this, because everyone is going to see this. We will be there thurs night checking this out.
Mad Max: Fury Road: 15
Looks interesting, I am sure a lot of guys will be running out to see this. I really have no desire to see this movie, it really does not do anything for me. I am not a big enough Tom Hardy fan for him to be a draw.
This looks like a live action Disney movie, not fully sure what this is about, Wiki doesn’t know what this is about either. It’s hard for me to want to see a movie that I really don’t know anything about.
Jurassic World: 12
I feel like this movie is didn’t they learn anything the other times? I think I will wait on seeing this one, I have seen dinosaurs go crazy enough times already. Can someone please explain trying to turn dinosaurs into Shamu?
Inside Out: 19
Ok, so this basically let’s us see what goes on in other people’s head, well mainly Riley’s. I am not sure how I feel about this, someone else is going to have to watch this and then tell me if it is any good. I am just not feeling this one.
Terminator: Genisy: 1
Well it’s another Terminator movie, so the likely hood is that I will be checking it out at some point, just don’t know if it will be theaters or on cable. I do like the whole alternate reality concept of it, because they had to do something to change the story up because well we have seen it so many times. How many times can Arnold get sent back to save John Connor, also Khalessi as Sarah Connor.
Well I am sure many will be flocking out to see this, because pretty much everyone loves the minions from the Despicable Me movies.
Well its a Marvel movie, so yea checking it out is a thing. Not to mention I am curious to see how they do the movie and the whole him shrinking down to ant size and riding bugs. Seriously, I am kind of wondering how he doesn’t get stepped on.
Well it is another live action Disney movie, checking it will be a thing, just not sure when. It is nice that they are doing a prequel because rarely do we get a chance to see how Peter got to Neverland. Also Hook before he is Hook and Hugh Jackman as the villain, that will be interesting to see.
Fantastic Four: 7
Well I am wondering how they do the reboot since the first attempt was not all that great. Also I want to know how they are going to explain Johnny and Sue Storm, not that I have a problem with it, just wondering what possible direction they are going with.
Hotel Transylvania 2: 25
If you saw the first one, you know you are going out to see the second one.
The Jungle Book: 9
If you probably checked out the other 2 live action Disney movies coming out this year, more then likely you will be seeing this one too. This one will be really interesting since Mowgli is pretty much the only human character in the whole story.
Jem and the Holograms: 23
If you grew up watching this as a kid, then you are more then likely heading out to theaters to see how they turned one of your beloved shows into a live action movie.
The Peanuts Movie: 6
It’s Snoopy, who’s not going to run out and see Snoopy, it has been so long since there has been a Peanuts or Charlie Brown movie I am sure everyone will be excited for this.
Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2: 20
Seriously, will there thurs night, I must see how they end the series. I have a lot of scenes that I am hoping they put into this one. I also hope the movie ending flows better than the book ending.
The Good Dinosaur: 25
It’s Pixar, which means at some point we are all going to see it. That is what happens with Pixar and Disney, we always wind up seeing those movies at some point.
Star Wars: The Force Awaken: 18
We have been hearing about this movie for like 2 year, we have been wanting a new Star Wars movie for even longer. We will be there, people are going to check this out, especially with them not using the extended universe that people know, everyone is going to wondering what the new canon is.
Alvin and Chipmucks 4: 23
I am sure it is time to stop making these movies, but kids love Alvin and Chipmunks. Those of us that grew up watching the cartoons will probably also see it as some point just because they are beloved characters.
A new Batman animated feature called Batman vs Robin, it will be based on the Night of the Owls storyline. They recently cast Kevin Conroy to voice Thomas Wayne. Now this is perfectly fine since Conroy did the voice of Thomas Wayne in the Animated Series. Someone else will be the voice of Batman; Jason O’Mara. O’Mara was the voice of Batman for last years Son of Batman as well as Justice League: Thrones of Atlantis.
I don’t know about the rest of you but as someone who grew up on the Animated Series from the 90’s, I don’t understand. If its Batman related and Conroy is in it, why is he not the voice of Batman.
Conroy has played the voice of Batman for more than 20 years spanning at least 9 different television series, 12 animated movies and 7 video games. Let’s face it the man is Batman. He is still voicing Batman, he will still be doing the voice of Batman in the upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight video game. He is currently rumored to be doing the voice of Batman in the Lego Batman Movie.
He has not stopped doing the role, he is the most iconic Batman voice out there. People know him as Batman, so to have him in that movie and not doing that voice is going to make people ask questions.
I personally am not happy about that choice at all, while I am happy that they will have Conroy doing the voice of Thomas Wayne. It is not time for Conroy to hang up his cowl yet, he still has many more years doing this voice left in him.
Here is Jason O’Mara as Batman:
Here is Kevin Conroy as Batman:
I think it is pretty obvious who the best Batman voice is, O’Mara is just too gravely, too Christian Bale. Which is not shocking since they are both European, one Welsh and the other Irish. The voice just does not work, Conroy has a much better voice.
What is your opinion about Kevin Conroy not being the voice of Batman in the upcoming Batman vs Robin?
A new trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron has been released, a lot of the same footage as before but a few new scenes as well. I have to say I am loving James Spader as Ultron or at least the voice. Maybe it is because I watch Blacklist, but his voice as this character almost gives me chills. Since the movie is not due out until May of next year, I bet we will be seeing more trailers and sneak peeks until then.
We’ve got a name, we’ve got a logo, and we know that principle photography has wrapped. It’s very little to go on, but it’s got nerds all atwitter.
It’s hard to believe that we’re getting a new Star Wars movie, and that it’s being produced by Disney… And the guy who did the Star Trek reboot… I don’t know what to think here, so please feel free to speculate wildly in the comments.
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens in theaters December 18, 2015.
Idris Elba let it slip that he and Tom Hiddleston will be making an appearance in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“Ironically, yesterday I had to…” Elba chuckles. He’s not meant to talk about this, but he clearly enjoys doing things he’s not meant to do. “I’m in Avengers,” he reveals. He means that his Thor character, deity-cum-sentry Heimdall, appears in Age of Ultron, the second installment of the superhero ensemble franchise. “And I’m doing a scene with Chris Hemsworth [who plays Thor] and Tom Hiddleston [Loki], and they’re like, [whispers] – ‘Aren’t you [meant to be] in Ibiza?’ ” That bassy chuckle again, followed by a frown. Elba came straight to Ibiza party-time from a mythical Norse god/Marvel universe that has made billions at the global box office. His head is all over the place. “That’s why I was p—– about my set yesterday. I really just wasn’t there. I was annoyed.”
It looks like we will get a scene with them during Avengers: Age of Ultron, it will probably be a small scene but I am sure I speak for everyone when I say we would love to see some more Loki.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will be hitting theaters next May.
Filming on Star Wars: Episode VII has officially wrapped up, now comes the long post production process Star Wars in known for.
J. J. Abams did write this lovely letter to his cast and crew:
To the Extraordinary Cast and Crew of Episode VII:
It is a true honor and absolute joy to come to set every day and work alongside each of you. Your professionalism, passion and patience is more deeply appreciated than we could ever express. From the deserts of Abu Dhabi, to the Forest of Dean, to the stages of Pinewood, you have risen to every challenge and been as wonderfully kind as you are brilliantly talented. Our ambition here is large, of course, and it must be: we are here to make a film that entertains millions of people, of all ages, for generations. To create an experience people will cherish watching as much as we will cherish having made it, together. How lovely it would be if you had, in addition to your name on the screen, some actual real tangible proof that you were part of it! Here, then, is that proof. Wear it well, wear it healthily, wear it proudly. But, mostly, thank you.
JJ Abrams Kathleen Kennedy Bryan Burke
Look for the movie to hit theaters next December 18th, with some of the original cast and a few new faces.
For anyone who watched Agents of SHIELD last night you go a sneak peak from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
I admit I would love to party with the Avengers, that looked like a fun time.
I avoided saying anything about the trailer when it first came out, because I really did not want to take away from it. I am sure we all have questions, why does Thor drop his hammer? Why is the Hulk fighting Iron Man? What happened to Captain America’s SHIELD? What brings back Nick Fury? We all know at some point Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch join the Avengers, so do they do it at the end of the movie? Do they ever find out that Coulson is alive?
I am sure we are all very excited for next May to see the movie, I am sure we will be getting more trailers and sneak peaks until then. We promise to keep you in the loop about anything that we hear.
