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:

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

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!

AHHHHHH!!!

The new trailer for CREED II was released today and it looks incredible! I love Michael B. Jordan as an actor and who doesn’t love the OG, Sylvester Stallone?? I mean, right?? I was a huge fan of CREED, and the follow-up film looks to be just as captivating. Add some DMX music to the mix and you have a recipe for a highly anticipated movie!

What are your thoughts? Did you hate it or love it? Let me know!

SYNOPSIS: Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

CREED II Returns To The Ring As Production Begins In Philadelphia

“CREED II” RETURNS TO THE RING AS PRODUCTION BEGINS IN PHILADELPHIA FOR METRO GOLDWYN MAYER PICTURES AND WARNER BROS. PICTURES

Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson Reprise Their Roles

Ryan Coogler Comes On Board As Executive Producer

Production began yesterday in Philadelphia on Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures (MGM) and Warner Bros. Pictures’ Creed II, starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, reprising their roles of Adonis Creed and Rocky Balboa respectively. Creed II is the continuation of the Rocky saga and sequel to the 2015 critically acclaimed and crowd-pleasing 2015 hit Creed, which took in more than $170 million at the worldwide box office. Ryan Coogler (Black Panther), who directed the first film, returns to the franchise as an executive producer on Creed II. The new film is being directed by Steven Caple Jr., who helmed the acclaimed 2016 drama The Land.

“When I wrote and directed Creed, I wanted to tell a human story about a family from a new perspective, while also paying homage to the Rocky characters we’ve all grown up knowing and loving. I’ve known Steven was an amazing filmmaker since our days at USC film school together, so I can’t wait to see what he, Sly, Mike and Tessa bring to this next chapter,” said Coogler.

Caple Jr. said, “It’s an honor to be a part of the franchise and work with such a thoughtful team. I got involved because I’ve always been a Rocky fan and I enjoy stories with heart and substance. But when Ryan put his touch on Creed I felt another level of connection to the franchise. It started to feel personal for many different reasons. This next Creed is a tale beyond the boxing ring and dives deep into family, legacy, and fears. I’m excited to share my view and collaborate with the talented cast and crew.”

“Ryan and Steven are voices for their generation and their shared vision for Creed has brought the Rocky franchise to an entirely new audience. We know audiences will continue to embrace the legacy that Sly created so many years ago,” said producer Irwin Winkler.

SYNOPSIS: Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

Also reprising their roles from the first film are Tessa Thompson as Bianca, Phylicia Rashad as Mary Anne, Wood Harris as Tony ‘Little Duke’ Burton, and Andre Ward as Danny ‘Stuntman’ Wheeler. The new cast is rounded out with Florian “The Big Nasty” Munteanu as Viktor Drago, Dolph Lundgren returning to the role of Ivan Drago, and Russell Hornsby as Buddy Marcelle. Creed II will be distributed theatrically in the U.S. by MGM on November 21, 2018, and Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute the film internationally.

Caple Jr. directs from an original screenplay written by Stallone based on characters from the Rocky franchise. The film is produced by Irwin Winkler, Charles Winkler, William Chartoff, David Winkler, Kevin King-Templeton and Stallone. Coogler, Jordan and Guy Riedel will executive produce.

Collaborating with Caple Jr. is a creative team led by director of photography Kramer Morgenthau (Thor: The Dark World, Game of Thrones); production designer Franco Carbone (The Expendables, Billionaire Boys Club); costume designers Lizz Wolf (A Single Man, Dreamgirls); art director Jesse Rosenthal (Black Panther, Trumbo); fight coordinator Daniel Hernandez (Avengers: Infinity War, The Fate of the Furious); technical boxing advisor Robert Sale (Grudge Match, Ali); special effects coordinator Patrick White (Baby Driver, Deepwater Horizon) and VFX producer Crystal Dowd (Straight Outta Compton, Pitch Perfect 2). Filming will take place primarily in Philadelphia with additional locations in New Mexico.

Creed, directed by Coogler, was released by Metro Goldwyn Mayer Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema in November 2015 and went on to garner many honors for Stallone, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, and an Academy Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.

Movie Review by Kristin: THOR: RAGNAROK | #ThorRagnarok #thor @thorofficial

IMG_0855

Helloooooooo, movie lovers!!

I got to see a 3-D screening of THOR: RAGNAROK last night here in Miami, and I have to say . . . this might just take the top spot for me! It’s definitely the most entertaining of the Thor movies.

Now, I might be a bit biased because I love me some Chris Hemsworth, but this movie had the perfect balance of action and comedy that I felt set it apart from the others. I don’t remember the other films being consistently funny throughout the entire two hours, but this one had everyone laughing (in a good way) for a lot of it. The interactions between Thor and Hulk were some of the best moments for me. I also loved the female presence in this one. Cate Blanchett as Hela aka the Goddess of Death, and Tessa Thompson were such bad asses in this movie and it’s nice to see women being represented as such in a genre geared towards boys and men. Women enjoy these characters and films too, so it’s nice to see them being included and represented as strong, powerful beings that can kick ass with the best of them!

The cast was fantastic, and there were even a few surprise appearances thrown in that made it even better. I’m about to throw in a spoiler alert regarding those appearances, so if you don’t want to know, skip through to the synopsis.

SPOILER ALERT: Doctor Strange played a small part in the film, Matt Damon goes uncredited but plays an actor imitating Loki.

 

SYNOPSIS: Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

This is definitely my favorite Thor movie. If you’re contemplating whether or not to see it in 3-D, I say do it! I wear glasses all of the time, so it’s a bit of a hassle having to put those 3-D glasses on top of my own and it distorts the picture just a bit BUT the effects were great and it was still a cool experience. Whether it’s 3-D or not, I strongly suggest seeing this one in the theater. Check it out for yourself and let me know your thoughts on this comedic direction!
