Cowabunga Dude! First Trailer is out For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

Question, did you grow up in the 80’s? Well then you’re in for a treat, and I don’t mean pizza! I mean a big old slice of nostalgia, served up fresh courtesy of Jonathan Liebesman. The first trailer is out for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! That’s right, another one of your beloved childhood memories brought to the big screen (again) (well, again, again)! If TMNT has a familiar look to it, its because it was produced by none other than Michael “I’m gonna blow shit up so much” Bay, who as you may know, is in love with Transformers, and you can see the same look and feel translate to this trailer as well.

Check out the first trailer below… Some are calling it more of a teaser trailer, but I think its your basic set-up trailer… you be the judge!

Let us know what you think in the comments! Paul and I will give you our thoughts on the new trailer on the upcoming show this weekend where we are going to review Sabotage and Noah, but wanted to get this up for you all to see!


New Picture of Dane DeHaan as The Green Goblin!

Well well well, it appears that the folks over at Sony, Marvel or whoever the hell owns this property nowadays,  feel as is you haven’t been bombarded by enough marketing and promotional materials already for the upcoming Spider-man-reboot-sequel-retelling, the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2, so they are here to give you even more! I mean we have seen images, posters, trailers, clips, featurettes, finger paintings, Etch A Sketch sketches (close enough Paul… “A” for effort) and just about everything you can think of for all the characters in the new movie. At least this time, they give us something good. Behold, the new Green Goblin!

Oh yes. She will be mine.

Oh yes. She will be mine.

Just released is a new image of Dane DeHaan as the Green Goblin, and if I do say so myself (I do, I do say so) he looks pretty bad ass. And that is coming from me, the guy who pretty much ripped apart the first Amazing Spider-Man, and this whole new trilogy because WHY ARE WE DOING THIS AGAIN ALREADY!!! But I digress…

At least we can say that they finally got the right actor and the right look for the Green Goblin. I think we can all agree that Willem Dafoe is an awesome actor, but come on… you can only do so much when you have to wear THIS ON YOUR FACE!!!

This is on my face.

This is on my face.

Now don’t get me wrong, just because I think DeHann looks awesome as the Green Goblin and they have done a great job designing the character… That doesn’t mean I’m on board with Amazing Spider-man 2. Not one bit. I think its going to be a convoluted, disjointed mess. Usually you don’t get this mush shit crammed into a movie until the 3rd installment in the series, but this is only number 2! I cant even imagine the mess that is going to be Amazing Spider-Man 3, with all the stuff they will have to shove into that movie to start really setting up their spin off movies, and setting up all those characters! AY DIOS MIO the agony!!!

Anyways, ill try to not get too ahead of myself. For now, lets wait and see what Amazing Spider-Man 2 has to offer, at least so far, we know it has a kick ass looking Green Goblin! The Marc Webb directed Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens May 2nd, 2014. And Paul and I will be there with bells on… and his Etch A Sketch.

Let us know what you think about the new look in the comments below!


New Trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past!!!

Whats up Cinema Recon-ites!? I bring you fine spices, jewels, and a new trailer for the upcoming Brian Singer directed X-Men: Days of Future Past! Now if you don’t know, this new flick deals with a bit of time traveling… that’s right… the FUTURE!!! (and also the past, but that doesn’t sound as exciting)

In the near future our mutants are facing near extinction at the hands of Bolivar Trask, played by the absolutely always amazing Peter Dinklage. Trask you see, is the inventor of some of the most menacing machinery our mutants will ever have to face… The Sentinels! (queue loud, shocking music) So the X-Men send Wolverine back in time to convince the younger Professor X that he must band together with Magneto to defeat Trask and the Sentinels, and to save all mutant kind! Its the ol’ good guys and bad guys must come together to face a super-bad-guy before he kills them all! Yeah, pretty much exactly like that!

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments!


First Trailer is Out For HERCULES Starring Dwayne Johnson!!!

Check it out! The first trailer is out for the Brett Ratner directed Hercules, starring none other than The Rock himself, Dwayne Johnson! I have been saying it for a long time, that this generation really lacks an action star with that true star power, like Arnold, Stallone, and Willis use to have… that’s why those guys are still making movies, cause they are still bad ass, and there is nobody else to fill that void. Well, wait no more, I think he has been slowly creeping up on us all and I think Dwayne Johnson is a great actor to fill those (giant) shoes and step in as the action star of today…

Now don’t get me wrong there are a lot of ways this movie can go south… I mean after all, Ratner did direct Tower Heist and X-Men: The Last Stand. You can check out our review of Tower Heist here, and that gives you a pretty good idea of what Paul and I think about Brett Ratner. And don’t even get us started on X-Men: The Last Stand… ouch. But hopefully he has learned some lessons between then and now, and at least he has someone like The Rock starring in Hercules, who is entertaining enough on the screen that he can probably carry a bad movie if he needs to, hell he can probably carry a small elephant if he needs to.

But with that said, check out the first trailer for Hercules below…

The trailer introduces us to the story and sets up this version of Hercules, so there isn’t a lot of action shown off here. But Johnson looks awesome as Hercules, and the effects looks pretty damn amazing if I do say so myself (I do, I do say so). Be on the lookout for more trailers down the road which are bound to showcase a lot more action! Let us know what you think about the trailer in the comments section!

Roses are red, violets are blue, this is Quicksilver, and so is this.

In today’s “WTF OMG R U serious, like for realz?” news segment, we will take a look at some pictures released of the new superhero Quicksliver. As you may know, Quicksilver will be starring in not one, but TWO super-superhero movies coming out relatively soon.

First up lets take a look at the version of Quicksilver played by Evan Peters from the Bryan Singer directed X-Men: Days of Future Past… Now, I want to warn you, the images you are about to see may be considered shocking… 

Quicksilver

Oh no you di-dnt

Now I know what you are thinking but hold on… before you go throwing your laptop into the ocean and sending us money for bringing you this information, let’s provide some background. Days of Future Past is going to partially take place in the 1970’s… OK that’s enough background, proceed to make fun. At least he has one of those cool Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatches… Man, he is about one Google Glass away from being pretty much the biggest dork on this superhero loving planet. Hey, Liberace called, he wants his jacket back.

Hey, I want my jacket back.

Hey, I want my jacket back.

Well that was brutal, now on to the Joss Whedon directed Avengers: Age of Ultron, which also has a version of Quicksilver played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Why do they both have a version of Quicksilver, and why is it a different actor and a different take on the character you might ask? Great question! I have no idea! Something to do with copyright laws and character rights contracts and shit nobody understands! But anyways, we all know and love the Avengers, and the Marvel Universe has such bad ass character designs, we can be sure we will get something better than what Brian Singer designed, right!? WRONG. So very, very wrong… I give you, Quicksilver (again)!

What the fuck?

What the fuck?

Now now, we do know that most likely on both of these young lads there will be some touch up and CGI in post production so you cant really expect him to look like this in the final cut. At least, for Marvels sake, lets hope not. Jesus, he looks like the long lost Backstreet Boy who never changed out of his performance spandex after all these years, and who may or may not also have a crack cocaine addiction.

Well there you have it, two of the biggest superhero movies have two of the lamest looking new characters of all time. The only thing we can hope is that either –

  • A). There is a HEAVY amount of post production work to make them look awesome and not retarded.
  • B). Out of sheer coincidence, in both movies a bus falls out of the sky as soon as Quicksilver appears on screen, and he is killed instantly and we never see or hear about him again.

Whatever happens, I am sure both movies will be giant box office smash hits. And whether Quicksilver looks like he belongs in a boy band or… well, in a 1970’s boy band, you can bet your ass Paul and I will be first in line for both these superhero flicks.

Note – Interesting connection, Both Evan Peters and Aaron Taylor-Johnson were in Kick Ass. Guess its not that interesting but whatever, you don’t have to be a jerk about it!


New Trailer out for Neighbors Starring Seth Rogen & Zac Efron!

What happens when a crazy fraternity moves in next door to a quiet little family??? Babies eat fake blue meth that’s what! Well, not exactly but that is a pretty damn funny scene from this new trailer for the movie Neighbors starring Seth Rogen & Zac Efron. I must say, this movie looks pretty damn funny. It reminds me very much of Old School in the sense that it might actually have a decent story and also some super hilarious antics along the way. I will admit that I can get a bit tired of Seth Rogan at times but this trailer looks like he will be a little more played down than some of his other roles, but no less funny. I don’t know what is more awesome, the fact that they throw a Robert De Niro look alike party, or the fact that Dave Franco’s impersonation of De Niro is spot on. Neighbors is set to open May 9th, 2014.


First Trailer for 22 JUMP STREET!

Its a good week for new movie trailers! But I don’t know if they get any better than this. 21 Jump Street was a pleasant return to some good ol’ laugh out loud comedy done right. Nobody ever expected the combination of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum to work, it just seemed too damn odd. But, alas, the people we about as wrong as Paul is nerdy, the pairing of the two was comedic genius. But the bigger question was, if (when) they make the sequel, can the capture lightning in a bottle twice. Is that the expression? Sounds wrong… either way, you know what I mean.

Check out the trailer and let us know in the comments, but by the looks of this, I would say the lightning has definitely been re-bottled, again. This trailer is hilarious, the ending is especially awesome, and this trailer (and hopefully the movie), shows how you can stick true to a format but still keep it fresh for the sequels (sorry Hangover).
