Thanks to Looper for the movie info 🙂
A couple of my favorite movies of 2016 are on the list – Arrival and Captain America: Civil War, but where’s Creed? (See link below.)
What was your favorite movie of 2016?
“From a sweetly nostalgic musical to one seriously thought-provoking sci-fi film.” – USA Today
"The Final Frontier" | One of my oil paintings for Star Trek, featuring The Next Generation cast. I'm incredibly honoured to be one of only 50 artists in the world, and the only Australian, invited by CBS to be apart of the Star Trek touring art exhibition alongside the legend Leonard Nimoy and funny girl @missmayim ~ in celebration of Star Trek's 50th anniversary. The art exhibition opens this week at Comic-Con, San Diego🖖🏻#startrek
Did you happen to miss the critically-acclaimed movie The Revenant (starring Leonardo DiCaprio)?
If you haven’t caught DiCaprio’s Oscar-winning performance in the man-vs-nature tale, no worries – the guys at CineFix have you covered.
Behold the entire two hour epic as an old-school video game – complete with bears and vengeful mountain men.
This looks so epic!
Over the years I’ve collected fan-made videos and artwork that was inspired by the classic SciFi movie Blade Runner, and this latest addition is stunning.
The video below was created by Bhautik Joshi, using an advanced computer program. It’s really amazing how closely the video resembles Van Gogh’s masterpiece.
Open Culture has more info on the video if you’re interested.
Ever wondered what famous movies would look like in the style of Winnie the Pooh drawings?
Okay, you probably haven’t wondered, but don’t let that stop you from checking this out.
Dawid Adamek took screen shots of classic Pooh cartoons and matched them with titles of the 2016 Oscar-nominated movies. The results are hilarious and spot on.
I shared a pair of the images here, and you can see the rest via the link below (courtesy of Bored Panda).
In case you missed it, yesterday there was kind of a huge event in the world of movies and geek culture.
Marvel Studios dropped the second trailer for the upcoming superhero saga Captain America: Civil War, which is another chapter in Marvel’s inter-connected Cinematic Universe.
The trailer alone would’ve been enough to cause fans to go nuts with anticipation, but what made this promo historic was the appearance of a new character.
Yes, I spoiled the surprise by mentioning Spider-Man in the title, but Spidey does steal the show in the trailer. If you’re not aware, Andrew Garfield, the previous actor to play Spider-Man, was replaced with a younger, relatively unknown actor named Tom Holland.
The trailer below is the very first time we see the “new” Spider-Man, and also the first line of dialogue Holland says as the beloved Marvel character.
Here’s the official movie synopsis –
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.
Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016. – Marvel
So, are we excited yet???
Did you catch this new movie trailer?
In case you missed it, earlier today we got our first peek at the upcoming Ghostbusters movie, and I gotta say it looks pretty hilarious.
The movie opens July 15, and it stars some of the funniest people on the planet.
It’ll be interesting to see if this reboot of the thirty year-old franchise becomes a pop culture milestone like the original movie did.
Have a look at Ghostbusters, and let me know if you plan to see the movie.
Here’s a fun (and interesting) article that I’m sure my fellow movie fans will enjoy. I was stunned to learn some of these great actors never won an Academy Award.
