I AM DURÁN Available on Digital Download on June 4

 

FEATURING ROBERTO DURÁN, SUGAR RAY LEONARD, SYLVESTER STALLONE, ROBERT DE NIRO, MIKE TYSON, LENNOX LEWIS AND RICKY HATTON

DIRECTED BY MAT HODGSON

We are thrilled to share with you the trailer for the highly-anticipated boxing documentary “I AM DURÁN,” featuring Roberto Durán, Sugar Ray Leonard, Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro, Mike Tyson, and several sporting heroes. 

“I AM DURÁN” is directed by Mat Hodgson (The Four Year Plan, Night of the Fight: Hatton’s Last Stand) and features iconic boxing champion Roberto Durán sharing his life story with fans. 

“I AM DURÁN” puts viewers in the corner of one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters ever and shows how Roberto Durán used his “Hands of Stone” to become a national hero and beloved son of Panama. 

Roberto Durán is a boxing behemoth, a titanic figure with a career straddling five epic decades who is regarded as one of the most entertaining and skilled fighters of all time. 

“I AM DURÁN” tells his story, inextricably interwoven with the story of the nation of Panama.

As Roberto Durán rose, fell, and rose again, staggering between glory and disaster, buffeted by the brutal blows of his opponents and of life itself – so did his beloved Panama. 

A country brought to its knees as a pawn in violent regional and international politics and suffering from the harsh yoke of dictator Manuel Noriega’s ruthless regime, in its darkest hour Panama needed a hero, a voice and an identity.

Roberto Durán’s impact transcended boxing and politics.

Born a fighter, his success inside the ring transformed him into an icon, yet it was his flaws and failures outside the ring that made him a hero and continue to ensure that his universal appeal and popularity endure to this day.

Illumination’s tenth feature, “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2016 comedic blockbuster that had the biggest opening weekend ever for an original film, animated or otherwise. 

Packed with Illumination’s signature irreverence and subversive humor, this new chapter explores the emotional lives of our pets, the deep bond between them and the families that love them, and answers the question that has long intrigued every pet owner: What are your pets really doing when you’re not at home?

Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with some major life changes. His owner (Ellie Kemper) is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops a nervous tic.

On a family trip to a farm, Max and mutt Duke (Eric Stonestreet) encounter canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a terrifying turkey, all of which only elevates Max’s anxiety.

Luckily, Max gets some guidance from veteran farm dog Rooster (Harrison Ford, making his animated-film debut), who pushes Max to ditch his neuroses, find his inner alpha, and give Liam a little more freedom.

Meanwhile, while her owner is away, plucky Pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate) tries to rescue Max’s favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe (Lake Bell), who has discovered the joys of catnip. 

And crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) gets delusions of grandeur that he’s an actual superhero after his owner Molly starts dressing him in superhero pajamas.

But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s only been pretending to be.

Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears?

“The Secret Life of Pets 2” is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy, the visionary team behind Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch and the Despicable Me and Minions franchise, and is written by returning Pets screenwriter Brian Lynch. The film is directed by returning filmmaker Chris Renaud, who also directed Illumination’s Despicable Me series and Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. thesecretlifeofpets.com

32 New Character Posters Revealed for AVENGERS: ENDGAME

IMG_7921Ahhhh!!! Good morning, movie lovers!

I am so excited about this particular post. Avengers: Infinity War was one of my favorites, despite so many of our favorites turning to dust. UGHHHH. I can’t wait to see where they take this because, I mean, the universe simply can’t stay this way.

Marvel Studios released 32 character posters yesterday that are absolutely incredible! The release of these posters marks the one month countdown for the release of AVENGERS: ENDGAME, which hits theaters April 26th.

SYNOPSIS: After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe. 

Here are the posters for the remaining allies:

IMG_7920

And, sadly, these are the posters for those we lost in Avengers: Infinity War. Thanks a lot, Thanos!

IMG_7919

What were your thoughts when you first saw these posters? I loved the creativity of it all. We usually don’t get this many characters posters, but with a cast like this, I guess it was inevitable. I love how the ones we lost in Avengers: Infinity War are in black & white. From a creative perspective, I thought that was awesome! But we’re gonna need all of those restored to full color, thank you very much!

I seriously can not wait to see this in the theater!

 

 

Movie Review by Kristin: Netflix’s THE DIRT

IMG_7875

What’s up, movie lovers?

It’s been a while since my brothers and I made plans to catch a movie together, but the release of Motley Crue & Netflix’s THE DIRT seemed like an appropriate time to change that! Let me give you just a little bit of backstory before I get into my review of the movie.

My brothers and I are all 4 years apart and I’m the youngest of three. My oldest brother has been the biggest Motley Crue fan since his teenage years, but we weren’t far behind. In 2008 I’d been laid off from my job, I had just found out that my best friend slept with the guy I was with & I was just an overall hot mess. My brother had never seen Motley live before, but he gave me his ticket to Crue Fest without a second thought. It was only natural that I repay his generosity by buying the three of us tickets to see them live TWICE after that, including seeing their Farewell Tour with our niece. The three of us had also read the book years ago, so we pretty much knew what to expect from the movie. (Side note: I’ve always had a little crush on Nikki, so there you have it.)

Crue[1]

With that being said, the three of us made plans for a family movie night to catch THE DIRT on Netflix and we were all super stoked about it! Especially considering the fact that Motley served as producers and we all know that if something was fabricated or came across badly, Nikki would make those changes prior to the release lol.

Here’s the official synopsis of the movie:

In this unflinching biopic based on Motley Crue’s best-selling book, four LA misfits navigate the monster highs and savage lows of music superstardom.

First, I want to talk about the casting for the movie. Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly) as Tommy Lee was absolutely PERFECT. It actually felt like we were watching Tommy act out his past. Everything from their build to their mannerisms were spot-on, so kudos to Colson for his performance.

The other guys (Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx, Iwan Rheon as Mick Mars and Daniel Webber as Vince Neil) were great as well. Admittedly, I had a little bit of a harder time believing Daniel Webber to be Vince, but he definitely had Vince’s on-stage mannerisms down. That might be partly because I’ve seen interviews with the others guys talking about their preparation and everything, but Daniel Webber hasn’t really done any press. My opinion of him in this movie has nothing to do with his acting skills though because he was great in The Punisher! It’s just difficult to portray someone so well known. Either way, you can tell that the guys all did their research on the OG’s to get this right.

I had looked up critic reviews before watching the movie myself and what I saw was awful. After watching it though, I have to disagree with their reviews. There were some things about the movie that I wasn’t particularly a fan of, but it wasn’t the debauchery that the band caused and lived through. That’s part of their story and all of what makes them Motley Crue. What I wasn’t a fan of were some of the transitions throughout the movie. I know it’s hard to take a 431-page book and almost 40 years together and make it into a 2 hour movie. But, at one point, they went from playing little club shows to playing arenas with no in between on how they got there. There was also the part where it seemed like a snarky comment from Nikki resulted in their owning their own music, but I’m sure it was much more detailed than that. It was little transitional things like that that seemed off to me. I guess it boils down to just wanting to see more. Maybe it could’ve been like a two-part movie, or like a mini-series or something.

That doesn’t take away from the quality of the movie though. THE DIRT transports you back to the 80s and definitely had great production value. What critics failed to take away from the movie is that this movie  is about a band that was determined to play music their way and overcame some horrible situations over the course of their years together. Their story of success and debauchery is horrific and legendary at the same time, but these are 4 guys who went through the craziest of times and lived to tell the tale. Fans have loved seeing important moments from the band’s lives being played out on-screen, so that’s what matters most. The bottom line is that critics have always criticized Motley, but look at them now! They own their music, they have a book, a film adaptation of that book, and their music is back at the top of the charts. Seems like they’re doing alright for themselves! Plus, they still have loyal fans that are loving every second of their success.

If you’re a fan of the band, the guys as individuals, the 80s or just music and movies in general, I would recommend checking this out when you can. It’s gritty, it has moments that make you laugh and it makes you proud, as a fan, to watch the craziness that tried to take Motley away but failed! Lucky for us!
