The New Genre: Super Hero Movies (Part I)

Author: Jay-Rey (@jay_rey)

The two largest publishers of comic books are DC and Marvel. While constantly duking it out in the comic book stores, they have recently started doing battle in theaters too. The name of the game for both studios is franchise, and that is exactly what both companies plan to do. But will this competition hurt the super hero movies of the future?

Professor X, Magneto, & Wolverine: Coolest Dudes on the Planet?

Short answer: yes. Thanks for reading.

Long answer:

Talking with my girlfriend @LQuitto15 this weekend, it occured to us: James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, and Hugh Jackman are all awesome. Borrowing the words of the great poet Fabolous, “[they’re] a movement by themselves, but a force when [they’re] together.” In addition to being three incredibly talented actors in their own right, when you put the three of them together, hilarity ensues.

May the Puppets be with You

JJ and a cast member

 

I am sure many of you saw the video JJ Abrams posted yesterday. He announced a charity he put together called Star Wars: Force for Change. The goal is to raise funds to help children all over the world. People who donate at least $10 will enter for a chance to have a walk on part for Episode VII. Pretty sweet right?

But what I really took from the video is the background character seen in the picture above. True to classic Star Wars set design, this friendly fellow here is a puppet. Star Wars fans know the puppet characters well, as they largely set up the world of unique creatures throughout the universe. Yoda, Jabba, and the famous Max Rebo are all puppets after all. While the new trilogy did away with puppets, going so far as to replace Episode 1’s younger Yoda puppet with a CGI model, puppets are very much connected to the star wars universe. The fellow pictured above looks like a hint of things to come.

Are you excited about more puppets in Star Wars? Am I getting excited over the wrong things?! AM I?!

New Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer!

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Prison-Team-Shot
Hot damn! The second official Guardians of the Galaxy trailer just dropped about 40 minutes ago, and the movie continues to impress me. The Guardians of the Galaxy are the rag-tag group of space travelers who come together and kick ass. The first trailer looked awesome, and showed a more obvious humorous tone than other Marvel movies tend to. Don’t get me wrong, Iron Man is plenty funny, and Captain America had some good laughs too, but with Chris Pratt taking the lead it is hard not to think of Andy Dwyer. Not that this is bad, of course.

 

But check out the trailer and let us know what you think!
