It takes less than half the new trailer (in either green or red band) for us to learn that the little girl that old man Logan and the aged Professor X are protecting is a very familiar character at a very young age – and that they might just protecting others from her, as well.
Note the amusing – and thought-provoking – way Logan ties in to the X-Men cinematic universe. Very, very clever indeed!
Logan opens on March 2nd. Hold onto your hats and check out both red and green band trailers after the break.
Hidden Figures, which had a two theater Christmas release for awards consideration, opens wide this weekend and it is a remarkable film.
The story of three African American women who made major contributions to the space race while working for NASA in 1961, it is a story of glorious achievement against a background of casual racism and sexism.
Callum Lynch wakes up the morning after his execution to discover he’s the essential part of a plan to travel back in through – through an ancestor’s memories – to locate the Apple of Eden for the contemporary Templars. In doing so, he learns that that ancestor was an assassin, tasked with keeping the Apple out of the Templars’ hands at all costs.
Assassin’s Creed is a jumbled mess of a movie that ties to achieve a mystical conclusion via a quasi-scientific means – and fails spectacularly.
The Spider-Man we know and love makes his first appearance in a trailer for his own movie – Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Quippy, cocky yet insecure – the kid at the losers’ table in the lunchroom, daydreaming about the hot girl who’s way out of his lead; the hero who takes down a bunch of thugs while wisecracking – this is the first co-production between 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios and it looks like they got it just right.
And Michael Keaton’s vulture? If his Batman had gone bad it might have looked like this.
Check out the trailer after the jump. Spider-Man: Homecoming will open wide (very wide) on July 7, 2017.
I just stumbled across the first trailer for Logan (for some reason, 20th Century Fox is the only major studio that won’t put me on their critics’ list).
Set to the strains of Johnny Cash’s take on NIN’s Hurt, this is a future Logan – a mutant who has gotten old in a world where Mutants are gone. A man without a purpose until Professor Charles Xavier gives him one…
Logan will be in theaters on March3, 2017.
Beginning today, Eclipse will be grading trailers the same way we grade movies. The Logan trailer is a great place to start.
