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.
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.
A few photos from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron have been released, they are currently shooting in Italy.
We have some great photos of Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, I still hope that outfit is not suppose to be her costume. It fits for an early outfit but she needs something else for later. We also get to see Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, I am liking his outfit better, but I am not sure about the hair. It might have something to do with the fact that his beard is not the same color. Of course we get to see some of Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, his actions shots look good. We have footage of Ultron unsure if it is James Spader in the suit but he will be playing Ultron.
What do you think of these first look images?
I have to say I like the Hulk concepts, it looks like we will be getting another Hulk fight scene. I love the second one because it reminds me a bit of the first Avengers movie. I like the showing of Scarlet Witch’s powers in the third one, but I am not sure how I feel about her outfit. I am hoping that is not supposed to be her costume. I do like the way Quicksilver looks in the last one, I like this outfit way better than the one from Day of Future Past. I was already pretty excited for this movie so this is only helping me get even more excited.
What do you think of the concept art for Avenger: Age of Ultron?
Avengers: Age of Ultron has added a new cast member, Kim Soo Hyun. Hyun confirmed on Twitter that she will be appearing in the upcoming Avengers movie. It is unknown at this time whom she will be playing. It has been speculated that she might be playing a scientist/doctor who works for Tony Stark. It was also speculated that she might be a villain or maybe she will be both. All we do know is that it will be a “substantial supporting role.”
A representative from Marvel had this to say:
“It would be a spoiler, so we can’t tell you which character Kim Soo Hyun will play. Marvel always prohibits telling too much about the story. Her character is already decided and the scene is already written so we cast Kim Soo Hyun, but we can’t let you know about her character. We only can say that her character is a substantial supporting role.”
It looks like we will not be finding out who she is playing before the movie comes out. I guess we are just going to have to wait and see, it look likes her role will be a pivotal one. All we can do is speculate about whom she will be playing. She might be playing Mantis, Black Lotus, Suzi Endo or as an Asian Wasp.
Who do you think that Kim Soo Hyun will be playing?
Thomas Kretschmann who will play Baron Von Strucker in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, has reportedly signed a multi picture deal with Marvel.
“That’s great of course. I have a multi-picture deal which means I will not only appear in the 2nd part, but they’re planning with me for a longer period of time. But I don’t know details yet, they’re keeping their cards close to their chest – top secret!”
No word yet on how many movies he has signed on to do but it does mean that we will be seeing more of his character. Baron Von Strucker is a part of Hydra and often battles against Captain America. If they make a third Captain America film then this could mean that Baron Von Strucker will be the villain.
