Jennifer Lawrence is back in the full blue body make-up in X-Men: Days of Future Past. You're welcome.
With The Incredibles becoming the highest selling DVD in 2005 (17.38 million copies), a sequel must have been in everyone's minds from the beginning. Brad Bird, the ﬁlm's director, expressed an interest to do an Incredibles 2 back in 2007 but his fear of not living up to expectations held him back. Bird wanted a sequel that paralleled the likes of Toy Story 2.
By the time Amazing Spider-Man 2 is released will it stand as the most leaked movie of all time? A crew member cannot sneeze these days without set photos being released to painstakingly chart the trajectory of the mucus. Today, we have even more. Not mucus, no, that would be gross.
Following Fast & Furious 6's monstrous opening weekend at the UK box office (and a likely equally big US box office on the horizon), thoughts turn to the next instalment in the most unlikely of blockbuster event movies.
Fans of the series who have enjoyed Fast & Furious 6 (me included, a personal review to come shortly) will have a good idea of what the future holds for the series, following a mid-credits stinger than sent audiences into a frenzy, but to keep things as spoiler-free as possible we will simply observe the settings for the next entry in the series.
Fans of V/H/S (if any) and horror anthologies (hopefully many), have we got a treat for you.
It may be the exact same set-up as the last Anchorman 2 teaser but it doesn't matter, the entire thing is still hilarious.
With Iron Man 3 being the first solo Marvel adventure to cross the billion dollar mark, Marvel have clearly proven themselves the new kings of summer, and so thoughts turn to the follow-up to their original smash-hit. The Avengers 2 is not due for release until 2015 but people just can't stop talking about it.
I have covered a lot of my thoughts on the Fast & Furious series during this Franchise Retrospective. I am a massive fan of these movies, even when I can clearly see that most of them are not good movies. I would go so far as to call the original movie, the Troll 2 of the action genre, it's a movie so bad that it borders on brilliant. Highly quotable, audacious, wrongheaded in most of the key areas; it's not a good movie but it is an absolute fucking blast.
The Daily Mail are reporting that Christopher Nolan is in talks to direct the next Bond film. The paper has revealed that "informal talks" have begun with long-time Bond producers, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson.
