The Theory of Everything decides to focus on his life before his disease and during it but the main focus appears to be him struggling through life with the woman he loves and how he work past his disease to be the man he is today. It is a nice idea to see the life of a man that you don’t know too much about. Hawking is a genius and it seems to be giving the man his due.

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 Trailer

Mockingjay-Part-1-Adds-Cast-Members

Hunger Games is kind of a weird phenomena. It somehow became one of the highest grossing movies of each year that it has been released. They are praised by most critic groups and made Jennifer Lawrence a star.  Young Adult novels have been a source for films for a while but most of them seem to fail. So far only Twilight and Harry Potter have been really successful  and now Hunger Games seems to be the most successful of the three. American audiences love it but foreign audiences have been a little less thrilled for these products. The first one didn’t do much overseas but Hunger Games: Catching Fire seemed to change that. Now I’m curious as to how the next one is going to do. It is clear that it is going to bank at the box office but how much can it make.

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) finds herself in District 13 after she destroys the Games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin (Julianne Moore) and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a nation moved by her courage.

Directed by Francis Lawrence. Starring Jennifer LawrenceJosh HutchersonLiam HemsworthWoody HarrelsonElizabeth BanksJulianne MooreJeffrey WrightJena MaloneSam ClaflinPhilip Seymour HoffmanNatalie DormerStef DawsonWillow Shields, and Donald Sutherland.

Intersteller Trailer

interstellar-trailer-07302014-111409 Christopher Nolan has been on a hot streak since Batman Begins. He has now become one of the most well known directors working today. His fresh take on the Batman saga has influenced blockbusters since. Intersteller looks to be something completely different than we are use to. Like Inception it takes an interesting concept and makes it into a blockbuster. Science Fiction has become increasingly popular and last year is probably one of the most successful year of the genre. Gravity was so close to winning Best Picture and Her was not far behind. Intersteller may have a similar run. The trailer is brilliant and showcases the incredible visuals that this movie is bound to have.

It may turn out to be too experimental for the crowd that tends to go to these types of movies. The premise sounds insane but not exactly something that people will understand. He makes his audience think and if this film is anything like the film that influenced it, 2001: A Space Odyssey, than we might have the next great science fiction film.

When a wormhole (which theoretically can connect widely-separated regions of spacetime) is discovered, explorers and scientists unite to embark on a voyage through it, transcending the limits of human space travel. Among the travelers is a widowed engineer (McConaughey) who has to decide to leave behind his two children to join the voyage to another galaxy with the goal of saving humanity.

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies Trailer

The Hobbit Trilogy has been a source of criticism since it was released in December of 2012. Personally I felt that it relied heavily on the success of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and never actually tried to make it a stand alone movie series. The first one was overlong and the second improved on the source material but they still felt corny and overly effected. With the debut of the The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies trailer it seems that it has improved upon the material even further and looks to be an actually decent movie. I still feel that if was one, maybe two, movies it could have been great but with three movies it feels like they are bloating the run time for no reason. As a whole it could very well be good in the end when you watch all three movies but as individual ones they feel somewhat disconnected.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

Mad Max: Fury Road Comic Con Trailer

DSC_3888.JPG Mad Max: Fury Road is a curious movie to me. It has been in production for as long as I can remember but only now is getting a release. I love the first two films; Mad Max and The Road Warrior, and I am even more excited for this one. Not really a reboot but more of a continuation of the events of the first three film, only with a new Max. From the footage alone I think that the wait may have been worth it. I know every one was in an uproar over the Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice Trailer that the excitement for this one wasn’t really there but after the trailer I think that this may have been the one to wait for. Shot with only storyboards and not an actual script it seems this will be more of a visual experience than anything else.

This is the fourth film in the Mad Max franchise with Tom Hardy taking on the role of Max Rockatansky, a role made iconic by Mel Gibson in the original films, a hardened ex-cop in a future beset by gas shortages and marauding gangs. The story is said to the take place a short while after Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, which keeps Mad Max relatively young. This time centering on Max and the “Five Wives,” a group of women Max must protect from the bad guys.

Directed by George Miller. Starring Tom Hardy as “Mad” Max RockatanskyCharlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, Nicholas Hoult as Nux, and Hugh Keays-Byrne as Immortan Joe. Produced by Village Roadshow Pictures and distributed by Warner Bros.
