Solo: A Star Wars Story,
finally makes it to the big screen. After decades waiting for an origin story, we will finally learn what happened to Han Solo before his debut with Episode IV: A New Hope. Will the Alden Ehrenreich version be the definitive Han Solo film or will it be forgotten in the dust bin of cinematic history?
Thanos is coming!
Avengers: Infinity War, arrives after 10 years in the making. Thanos starts a war over with the heroes of the universe. Who will win? Who will die? It will take over $1 billion dollars in ticket revenue for us to find out.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi,
may be the biggest box office draw of 2017. Claiming episode “8”, it is the second of the trilogy for a new generation. A mix of legacy and new, how will will we remember this latest entry of the Disney/Star Wars brand? In short, the review is complicated.
will it save the DCEU? Will this finally right the wrongs from Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad. With the combined efforts of Zack Snyder, Josh Whedon, and the micromanaged oversight of the studio, what could go wrong?
At long last,
what the world have long waited for, the third Thor standalone movie. Seriously, this is the third Thor standalone movie and completes a trilogy along side Captain America and Iron Man. How will this trilogy end and will it equal the the previous two? Here are a few short words about Thor: Ragnarok.
The lawyers at Sony and Marvel
join forces and release its third Spider-Man reboot since 2002. This time its Tom Holland in a MCU stamped stand-alone film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. But he’s not alone, Tony Stark makes several cameo appearances as his mentor and tutor. Will this be “Amazing” or better?
The Dark Universe,
is coming with fantastic, legendary creatures from the properties of Universal Studios. Thanks to the trailer, it made me a skeptic and the movie plummets on my “must watch” list behind Cars 3 and Despicable Me 3. Is nostalgia out of reach? Do I want to see a movie rewritten by studio committee?
The DC universe finally
has a film that isn’t terrible. It’s Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot reprises her role again as Diana in a film telling an origin story the first time. It’s a sequel disguised as a prequel released months before Justice League another sequel to the prequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Will this be another box office flop? Or will this be the first of many successes to rival the cash flow of Marvel?
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tells No Tales,
is the fifth “Pirates” film based on the famous Disney dark ride. It is also the second stand-alone film since the original trilogy. Is the franchise still entertaining and exciting? Or has Johnny Depp’s career sinking to the depths of Davey Jones’ locker?
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,
is another cash register working overtime for Disney/Marvel. Three years after surprising us with a gang of galactic outlaws, the Guardians return in another adventure. In many ways its different from the original, as subtle as they are. But its no less exciting.
