The Expendables 2 trailer starring Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture,Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger in one movie!!!!

Synopsis:

"The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Lee Statham), Yin Yang(Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….”

The film hits theater on August 17th 2012!

Operation Early Bird: The Dark Knight Rises Prologue (My Experience)
 A couple of days ago, the twitter net was aflutter with the news of a site entitled “Operation Early Bird” (shown below)



This “operation” was in actuality a portal that served as a means to obtain reservations to see an early screening of the 6 minute prologue of Dark Knight Rises. This being the same prologue that was said to premiere with the screening of MI:4 on exclusively 70mm film. I am a Baltimore resident and the closest screening was Washington DC at The Johnson IMAX Theatre (a building apart of the Smithsonian, an hour from my home). I obtained some tickets (thanks Ashley), however,  and decided to make the trek! The screening was set for Tuesday December 13th 2011 at 10pm.


  I arrived to the venue about 2 hours before the screening to find that there were well over 100 people there to see the prologue. The space was huge! Hundreds of seats. To everyone’s delight, we were handed Dark knight rises t-shirts. 


Despite the fact that the Operation Early Bird site indicated that the tickets were in fact “sold out”, less than half of the seats in the entire IMAX theatre were empty.


I don’t want to give away too much about the prologue but I will say a few things.


-The Dark Knight Rises Prologue is in fact the first 6 minutes of the movie.

-There is an immense amount of action. Pay attention to the dialogue or you will completely miss the point of the actions taken in the prologue.

-Bane can be seen and heard in 70mm glory.

-Bane (Tom Hardy) is humungous. His voice is hollowed and amplified. The accent is obscure but amazing.

-Catwoman is shown…a bit.


-Not much Batman is shown.

-JGL (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is shown.

-There is something incredibly different about Batman’s suit.


I can’t wait for you all to see it. It was amazing. Summer 2012 can’t come any sooner.

The Fireflies in the Garden Trailer Debuts

A closely observed exploration of the complexities of love and commitment in a family torn apart when faced with an unexpected tragedy, Fireflies in the Garden marks the feature directorial debut of Dennis Lee from a screenplay he wrote. Lee, a student Academy Award winner for his short film, Jesus Henry Christ, was inspired to write this semi-autobiographical family drama after his mother’s death in 2002. 

To an outsider, the Taylors are the very picture of the successful American family: Charles (Willem Dafoe) is a tenured professor on track to become university president, son Michael (Ryan Reynolds) is a prolific and well-known romance novelist, daughter Ryne (Shannon Lucio) is poised to enter a prestigious law school, and on the day we are introduced to them, matriarch Lisa (Julia Roberts) will graduate from college—decades after leaving to raise her children. But when a serious accident interrupts the celebration, the far more nuanced reality of this Midwestern family’s history and relationships come to light. (steve)

The Thing Movie Poster
John Carpenter’s The Thing is held in high regard among many movie lovers. The 1982 horror survival flick was dark, scary and most importantly good. In a move that snuck up on me a bit, Universal has decided to try its hand at the movie property. Interesting. The movie will star Scott Pilgrim’s Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Eric Christian Olsen, Joel Edgerton, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. The movie is set to be released in October 2011 and is directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. (ron)
