Movie Talk | Upcoming 2016 Films
This past Saturday found me "at the movies." For whatever reason, I was abnormally early. As my mother and I sat in our seats minus popcorn (because, well, we're those weird kind of people who don't have to be munching to enjoy our flick... I know this is probably almost against a theater outing law), we not only sat through the overabundance of trailers, we also sat through the pre-previews, which consists of film trivia and other nonsense. But, I guess the good thing that came of this was in fact, seeing some interesting trailers!
MARVEL FANGIRL | Doctor Strange Teaser
Some of these I did see for the first time at the theater, others I spotted when looking up the codes for some of these trailers. Needless to say, I think there are some interesting flicks hitting theaters later this year. My dilemma now shall be choosing which of these to see in theaters, and which I'll await the DVD arrival for.
Let's jump right in, shall we?
Matt Damon, Julia Stiles and Alicia Vikander
I'd totally be lying if I didn't say this is THE movie I'm most anticipating. It looks crazy good, plus Matt is back in the role of Jason Bourne, which is just how this series was always meant to be continued.
Jason Bourne, now remembering who he truly is, tries to uncover hidden truths about his past. - July
The Legend of Tarzan
Alexander Skarsgård and Margot Robbie
Tarzan (no matter its form) has never been my favorite legend story, so while I probably will see this one, my feelings on it could go either way. Still, it looks interesting plus I love that so many films are becoming live-action, and as if it definitely plays up the romance angle.
Tarzan, having acclimated to life in London, is called back to his former home in the jungle to investigate the activities at a mining encampment. - July 1st
The Magnificent Seven
Chris Pratt, Denzel Washington and Haley Bennett
This was a first time trailer for me, and golly, it looks hilarious! I vaguely remember seeing the oldie adaptation, so I'm curious to see how this one plays out. Oh, and can we just appreciate how hilarious Chris Pratt's performance seems in this one!?
Seven gun men in the old west gradually come together to help a poor village against savage thieves. - September
James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult and Rose Bryne
I know, this one has been "out there" for a while. But - gasp (my inner Marvel fangirl is shocked!) - I've not actually watched the trailer. This one promises to do justice to the Jean Grey and Scott love story (new actors in the roles too), so we'll see how that plays out; I liked them fine in the other versions considering Movie Jean and Scott was all I knew. (Bonus: Rose Bryne returns!)
With the emergence of the world's first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan. - May 27th
