Hardcore Henry is a shot of pure adrenalin on top of an urn of coffee, a six-pack of Coke and about a pound of rice krispie treats. It replicates the experience of watching an expert play a first person shooter video game while layering in a love story and several unexpected dollops of wit.
Powers is back for a second season and it looks like fans of the comic will finally get to see an adaptation of the first Powers storyline: Who Killed Retro girl?
The new trailer for season two finds a retired Power coming out of retirement and last season’s biggest wannabe getting some good advice from former Power, Christian Walker. Also, it looks like the government is trying to outlaw Powers. I wonder how that will go?
Check out the trailer after the jump. Powers returns on May 31 with three episodes. New episodes will roll out on subsequent Tuesdays.
The new trailer for STX Entertainment’s Hardcore Henry is even more bat$#+!-crazy than the first one. And the snippets of reviews pasted into it are pretty entertaining, too.
Check it out after the jump. Hardcore Henry opens on April 8th.
It was a bit of a shock to learn that Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s dark stake on super-powered characters, Powers, had been licensed by Playstation.
Then they cast Sharlto Copley as Christian Walker – a former Power who lost his powers under devastating circumstances and now was a detective investigating Powered crimes. The they cast Eddie Izzard as bad guy Power, Wolfe and changed Walker’s partner, Deena Pilgrim from petite blue-eyed, blonde to African-American because Susan Heyward’s audition was so impressive. Then they added Michelle Forbes as Retro Girl – one of the few genuinely altruistic Powers in the world. Suddenly, the Powers live-action series become a source of much intrigue – intrigue that grew with the release of the first trailer last October.
Now, Sony and Playstation have released the first behind-the-scenes look at the world of Powers – a seven-minute video that features interviews with most of the major players in front of and behind the camera. Check it out after the jump.
Powers premieres on March 10th, with new episodes released on Tuesdays
What if humanity’s last hope isn’t human? Meet Chappie.
From Neill Blomkamp, the director of District 9, Chappie premieres on March 6th. Chec out the new teaser after the jump.
Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings — some good, some bad — and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever.
We all know the story – even the shortest TV spot gives us the spine of it – the Alpha, or A-Team is set up whilst on a covert ops mission and court-martialed for a crime they didn’t commit, so they break out of prison to clear their names and nail the person[s] responsible for the frame. Sounds simple, probably because it is.
This is the part where I’d admit to being just a little bit ashamed [if I wasn’t so darned shameless]: The A-Team is bereft of anything even remotely approaching story or character development; it is nothing more than an excuse to brawl and shoot and blow stuff up real good; the pacing barely ever deviates from frenetic [and when it dials down, it only drops to furious] and, yes, the headline quote from former-Colonel Hannibal Smith [Liam Neeson] accurately describes the flick [and make no mistake, this a flick – not a film, not a movie – a flick]. And I enjoyed it.
