The Wolverine

It’s The CoF Weekend Preview! Check out what’s opening this weekend and decide what you will be seeing in theaters. For the big picture, check out The Summer Movie Guide to see what’s coming out over the next few months.

The WolverineRT (69%) – Trailer

This is obviously the big movie of the weekend.  Hugh Jackman returns to the role for the sixth time and for his second solo Wolverine film which already looks better than X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  This film also looks to promise us the berserker style Wolverine we’ve been waiting for all these years, but…will it deliver?  I…can’t say, I haven’t seen it yet…they don’t let me leave the office.

Blue JasmineRT (85%) – Trailer

Woody Allen is one of the most prolific directors in Hollywood, the man has had a film out every year since the early 80′s.  Obviously someone who just loves making movies.

The To Do ListRT (70%) – Trailer

Aubrey Plaza speaks in a bored and monotone voice…and I’m assuming she uses that voice for this movie too HEYYOOO!

 

New Trailer for The Wolverine – Silver Samurai is a giant

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

The Wolverine battling Silver Samurai

So this isn’t going to be a rant about how the Silver Samurai is a giant robot and how I am totally against it. I don’t care much about how closely the character follows the original source material. I am a very casual fan when it comes to the Marvel universe. I’ve enjoyed some of the movies and hated the others. Well there is a new trailer for The Wolverine and it looks pretty action packed. It also doesn’t seem so heavily focused on mutant powers an abilities as some of the other X-Men movies. Watch the new trailer below, courtesy of IGN and see what you think!

The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013.

Domestic and International Trailers for THE WOLVERINE

Wednesday, March 27th, 2013

wolverine, hugh jackman

The international and domestic trailers for director James Mangold’s sequel The Wolverine have landed this morning.  Wolverine is isolated in modern day Japan where he faces his ultimate nemesis “in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.”

The difference between the two is that in the U.S. version we see the reveal of the man offering Wolverine a chance at mortality.  That’s right, the Wolverine doesn’t want to be immortal anymore!

The film stars Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova.

The Wolverine opens on July 26th, hit the jump to check out the trailers and synopsis.

CoF Presents: Superheroes of 2013

Friday, March 15th, 2013

super-heroes-2013

The onslaught of superhero and comic book movie adaptations over the years isn’t slowing down any time soon, and 2013 is proof of this.  Some of these movies rank high on must see lists; others might be left in the dust.  Whether you’re going to stream superhero movies or check them out in theaters, there will be a lot of options waiting for you.

A superhero is a type of character possessing “extraordinary or superhuman powers” and is dedicated to protecting the public. That’s how I got away with including some questionable “superhero” movies here folks. That’s why I wear a bow tie.

Find out what’s coming out and when. Let us know what movie you’re most excited for:

New Synopsis for THE WOLVERINE

Friday, November 16th, 2012

wolverine

This week a new synopsis has been released for The Wolverine, basically underlining what we’ve heard from Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold.  The good thing to hear is that it’s going to be a much darker Wolverine movie, as the character should be.

The film also stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Brian Tee, Rila Fukushima, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova.

The Wolverine opens July 26, 2013.

Via The Lebanese Cinema Movie Guide:

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.

News Bits: Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, The Wolverine and Thor 2

Friday, July 1st, 2011

hugo

Martin Scorsese‘s upcoming 3D family film Hugo Cabret has been retitled, it will now be called Hugo.   The movie hits November 23, 2011.  This will be Scorsese’s first movie aimed at kids; it will be interesting to see what he can bring to the screen with this one.  More on the movie here.

In other news, according to Hugh Jackman filming starts this October on The Wolverine.  This is a little excerpt from a radio interview that we found on indiewire: “We shoot in October, so it will probably come out a year after that. That’s usually around the timeline”. So I guess this movie is actually happening, and Jackman is a reporter now too.

Finally, Marvel Studios has announced they are committed to making Thor 2, with Chris Hemsworth set to reprise his role in the lead. Deadline reports that Kenneth Branagh will not be directing the sequel.  So far the film has grossed $437 million and counting worldwide.  A release date will be scheduled for Thor 2 for sometime during summer 2013. Iron Man 3 has already been slated for May 3, 2013…it’s another summer of over hyped superhero movies baby!
