CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER Trailers, Posters, Pics, And Spoilers!

cap

To say Marvel Studios has kicked the marketing machine for CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER into high gear is an understatement. They’ve taken the machine, rebuilt it from the ground up with parts designed specifically to appeal to the geek inside of all of us, put the machine back together, filled it with enough high octane geek fuel to keep it running till time to get everyone psyched the f*ck out for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and they’ve launched it at the masses with little to no regard as to how much awesome they can actually take.

Don’t believe me? I dare you to click the pic and check out the plethora of WINTER SOLDIER goodies I’ve procured for you and not totally geek out. I dare you. I dare you because it can’t be done. It just can’t. Even non-Cap fans will/should agree this flick looks AMAZING. Cap (Chris Evans) kicking ass for freedom, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) dropping quips and doing her sexy pose/kill thing, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D. head honcho Alexander Pierce (ROBERT REDFORD!) going full ‘70s political paranoia thriller, Winter Soldier (Um… Is it cool to reveal he’s played by Sebastian Stan?) tearing EVERYONE a new one, Falcon (Anthony Mackie) rocking double semi-automatics and soaring through the sky using robo-wings, a fleet of helicarriers, war in the streets, fist fights in elevators, flashbacks to WWII featuring the Howling Commandos, a possible post-credits stinger that sets up THE AVENGERS 2 with the first appearance of [SPOILER ALERT!!!] Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), and plot twists and turns so shocking they will resonate through the entire Marvel Studios film universe including AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. What’s not to love?!?

Tatum Triple Pack: New 22 JUMP STREET & JUPITER ASCENDING Trailers And A G.I. JOE 3 Rumor

JUPITER

So yeah… the first trailer for the upcoming sci-fi epic JUPITER ASCENDING starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis is really f*cking weird. I think that’s pretty evidence from the screencap above. From the glow-y bullet time to the zero gravity gun-fu above the Chicago skyline to the obvious JOHN CARTER homages to Tatum’s elf ears, neck tat, guy-liner, and blonde goatee, JUPITER ASCENDING looks to be oozing weirdness out of every one of its weird pores.

But you know what, I have 100% faith in the Wachowski Starship. Say what you will about THE MATRIX RELOADED and THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS, but those two delivered the goods with THE MATRIX, SPEED RACER, BOUND, and CLOUD ATLAS. Those flicks are bonafide cult classics.

You know what? Screw the “cult” label. Those flicks are bonafide classics. Genre-bending masterworks made by a directorial duo that doesn’t nearly get the respect they deserve. I’m excited to see they do next, no matter how f*cking weird it may be.

SPIDERMAN2

Wallopin’ websnappers! After months of nothing but spy pics, some Comic-Con teasing, and a lot of idle fanwanking, Sony has finally shifted the marketing machine for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 in full gear by releasing a sweet new triptych set of posters, an official theatrical trailer, and an exact duplicate of that trailer with video commentary from director Marc Webb and actors Andrew Garfield, Dale DeHaan, Emma Stone, and Jamie Foxx.

Bryan Singer Tweets X-MEN: APOCALYPSE Announcement; Plot Details And Release Date Revealed

XMENAPOC

“#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!”

And with that one tweet, director Bryan Singer lines up his next gig.

Vulture, Badass Digest, Movieweb, and pretty much every fanboy site on the interwebs is reporting Singer and 20th Century Fox are already hard at work on a sequel to next summer’s X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. Subtitled APOCALPYSE, the film will feature the “First Class” group of mutants – Professor X (James McAvoy), Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Havok (Lucas Till), and whoever else might be introduced in DAYS – doing battle with fan favorite baddie Apocalypse (pictured above).

I would explain Apocalypse, his connection to the X-Men, and his master plan, but it’s wayyy too convoluted to explain in just a couple of sentences. Click HERE to check out his Wiki page, if you want. Long story short, he’s a giant purple ancient mutant warlord hell-bent on destroying Earth. He’s basically the Thanos (the giant purple ancient mutant warlord who appeared in the end credits of THE AVENGERS) of the X-MEN universe. Not that his comic description matters. First Showing has uncovered the film version of Apocalypse will likely be quite different from the comic book version.
