Disney/Pixar’s Incredibles 2 opens in theatres June 15!
In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
We’re entering the dog days of summer and the last of the summer blockbusters has opened (or maybe closed – it’s been that kind of summer). Into that void comes The Hitman’s Bodyguard – a movie that would be a B-movie if not for its high powered leads.
After his Triple-A rated protection agency goes ‘Pffft!’ following losing a client, Michael Bryce (the world’s top bodyguard) gets a major gig shepherding Darius Kincaid (the world’s top hitman) to the World Court in The Hague. Things do not go smoothly.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard centers on a top protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) who is tasked with guarding his mortal enemy and a most notorious hitman (Samuel L. Jackson). The two, who have been on the opposite end of the bullet for years, are thrown together for a wildly outrageous 24 hours. They encounter high-speed car chases, outlandish boat escapades and a merciless Eastern European dictator who is out for blood.
All set to the music of Whitney Houston…
The Hitman’s bodyguard will be in theaters on August 18th.
Spike Lee can serve up sharp, subtle satire and he can serve up the blunt-upside-your-head kind with equal facility.
With Chi-Raq, he looks at the moment in time the death toll in the city of Chicago outpaced the death toll on American soldiers in Iraq – and both of his satirical big guns are fully loaded via, of all things, a classic ancient Greek play – Lysistrata, in which the women of Greece withheld sex from their men until they ended the Peloponnisian War.
Check out the cutting first trailer for Chi-Raq following the jump. Chi-Raq is in theaters on December 4th.
