Let’s be honest here. Guardians of the Galaxy was a monster of a sleeper hit. The so-called “Space Avengers” surprised everyone, taking third place among the highest grossing films in 2014 with nearly $775 million worldwide. So interest in a sequel by fans and the press is nearly as high as that other space opera set in a galaxy far, far away.
Every week countless trailers go unnoticed or unreported. Trailer’s are an art form in itself, and can be just as entertaining, if not sometimes more, than the actual films, so they deserve their own recognition. That’s why every week we sort through them for you guys, and put the ones we feel you should watch here in our Trailer Roundup.
Recently a whole bunch of new posters were revealed for some of the most anticipated new Hollywood blockbuster releases. The event took place in Las Vegas, Nevada at the annual CinemaCon (formerly called ShoWest) event. This is where major Hollywood studios give exclusive glimpses into their new products. Below are some of the more interesting posters displayed on that day.
All of these look stunning but what caught my eye was the teaming of Ryan Reynolds and a very steam punk looking Jeff Bridges in R.I.P.D. The Hangover part 3 has the most interesting designed poster, with its gatefold cover parodying pretty much every other Hollywood blockbuster poster out there. To see more of these posters please check out the Cinema Blend website.
Before that though look at the posters that were shown on Hollywood Reporter showing the incredible looking Pacific Rim movie directed by Guillermo del Torro. My favorite poster is the retro styled war posters mimicking the enlisting posters of old.
All in all some pretty impressive film posters have come out recently. Here is hoping that the movies live up to the posters hype. Keep checking Grizzly Bomb to find out if they do.
Remakes. Sometimes good, and sometimes completely unnecessary, unwanted, and absolutely dreaded. Movies that stand alone as their particular works of art, which cannot plausibly be recreated to contain the same zest and epic-ness as the original. I’m talking about the upcoming American remake of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy.
As we learned from FilmDrunk, Josh Brolin has been cast to play the lead in Spike Lee’s remake of the 2003 South Korean film Oldboy by director Park Chan-wook.
The original movie won the ‘Gran Prix of the Jury’ at Cannes in 2004, and therefore has some big shoes to fill.
We have also talked about it here before, but I’ve included the trailer for you again.
