PACIFIC RIM UPRISING | New Poster

image001The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.”  Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld.  But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war.  As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left.  Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

#MovieWednesday: Week 1 | Star Wars: The Last Jedi, The Princess Diaries and Justice League

IMG_0554

Hey hey hey!! Happy Hump Day!

Today is dedicated to movies, movies and more movies. So, grab your popcorn and prepare for trailers, release dates, casting news, etc. I’m hoping to have some podcasts posted here as well, so if I can wrangle in some of my cohorts, those will be included on certain Wednesdays too.

I can’t complete my first #MovieWednesday without mentioning the new Star Wars trailer! Ho. Ly. Crap. Balls. The anticipation for this one is REAL! If you’re one of like five people who hasn’t seen it yet, you can watch it below:

Ahhhhhh!!! Were you as impressed and worried as I was?? I work with two Star Wars fanatics who are uber excited about the idea that Rey might turn to the dark side alongside Kylo Ren, but I refuse to accept this. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that perhaps she’s teaming up with Luke Skywalker and pretending to side with Kylo Ren in order to retaliate for (SPOILER ALERT!!!!!) killing Hans Solo. Think I’m reaching? You’re not the only one haha. Let me know what YOU thought!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to be released in theaters December 15, 2017 and tickets are available now!


PB1208[1]This is a rather random choice for #MovieWednesday, but who cares? It’s a movie! I’ve heard so many people talking about the 1987 film The Princess Bride, but I, personally, have never seen it. I decided to change that and I recorded it on my DVR last week. I finally sat down to watch it and realized that it wasn’t necessarily what I expected. It was odd, it was far-fetched, it was cute, it was romantic, it was funny and I liked it! Have you seen it before? Want me to shut up about it now? … As you wish …


One movie that I’m really excited about is Justice League! I don’t even think I need to give an explanation as to why! lol. I’m excited to see Jason Momoa embrace the role of Aquaman, and I’m stoked to see a female superhero (Wonder Woman) holding her own amongst some of the best male superheroes. I’m still a bit salty that Grant Gustin didn’t get to play The Flash in the film since he plays him so well on The CW, but I digress. Check out the newest trailer and let me know your feelings. Who are you most excited to see?

 

Here are the newest movie posters for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Justice League:

 

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI | New Poster & Teaser

starwarsthelastjediposter[1]You guys!!!! It’s here!!!!

Here is the official poster for the new Star Wars film ‘The Last Jedi,’ and it is F*&#%&^* awesome!!!

It’s nice to see Mark Hamill’s face behind a light saber again! I’m sure most of us would love to see Luke get revenge on Kylo Ren after killing our beloved Hans Solo, am I right? I’m just excited to see another installment period!  🙂

We were also blessed with a teaser trailer which looks AMAZING! You can check that out below . . .

The film is due to be released December 15!  as always, let me know what you think! What are your fan theories?

 

SYNOPSIS: Having taken her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), Rey continues her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the saga.

Hey #movie fans!!
 
Keisha and I decided to record a podcast about Marvel news for you! Unfortunately, I’ve been extremely busy between finals week at school (yes, I’m 32 and still in school lol) and moving into my new place, so I’m not as informed as she is hahaha.  She wanted to hear my reactions to all of the news, so this is what we did:
