The 91st Oscar nominations were announced this morning in a presentation by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. We have the full list of all the most noteworthy people and films up for the coveted Academy Award.
It may be part of Darth Disney’s plan to take over the world, but Marvel’s ever-expanding movie universe has taken audiences by storm (just not Johnny Storm).
Captain America: Civil War kicked off Phase Three with some impressive numbers the last two weekends, keeping the number one spot and showing that audiences are still symptom-free of what some are calling Superhero-Fatigue.
Obligatory Spoiler Warning
I saw Captain America: Civil War opening night and despite popular opinion, I was a bit disappointed.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s leaps and bounds better than the majority of other Marvel Cinematic Universe films, but I think the hype got to me and I left a little underwhelmed. So, if you loved it (and you probably did), don’t yell at me, I loved it too, my disappointment couldn’t outweigh my enjoyment. But I do have a few things I’d like to address…
We are fast approaching the release of the third Captain America film, which hits theaters in May. Today they dropped their latest trailer, and as well received as the last couple were, I would say this is gonna be the one people remember. This movie has fans excited for several reasons; Introduction of Black Panther, Ant-Man joining the other heroes, we got a glimpse of Crossbones, and perhaps the biggest headline – Marvel bringing home your friendly neighborhood wall-crawler. And this trailer marks the first time we’ve seen the webhead. Check it out…
Those who tuned into Jimmy Kimmel Live last night were given a pretty amazing treat as Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. brought the first officially released footage from the next huge film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – Captain America: Civil War.
Now I want to spend a few paragraphs going over some of the politics represented within the trailer and how it reflects on our modern societies… ah screw it. Let’s just watch the trailer, that’s what you came here for anyway.
