Can we say “sequel” for CreedWe definitely hope so! The latest installment of the Rocky franchise was a surprising box office hit over the Thanksgiving weekend, debuting third behind Mockingjay and The Good Dinosaur; bringing in an estimated $42.6 million dollars. The film had everything–family, loyalty, amazing fight scenes, and legacy; proving that the nostalgia surrounding the Rocky franchise is as potent as it was nearly thirty years ago. We are definitely hyped for a sequel, and rumor has it the second Creed movie will be a true family affair.

(Spoiler Alert) As you recall, Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan) is stated by the media to be the youngest biological son of Apollo Creed, not his only son. In the sequel it rumored it will be “Creed vs. Creed” as Adonis must face one of his older half-brothers in the ring. His brothers are not to happy with him capitalizing off their father’s name for a championship fight. Mary Anne (Felicia Rashad), his adoptive mother, and their actual mother is torn between her sons and stepson making for some family drama that only a drag out fight will fix! This already sounds amazing, and we have no doubt this film too will be a hit.

Michael B. Jordan has come forward to say he definitely would do a sequel. “A character so rich as this, and the world he’s in, I want to see what happens to him next and what he does,” Jordan states. “Especially the way it ends off, it’s pretty cool. I think with success and time and circumstances, it would be exciting to come back and work with (co-stars) Sly (Stallone) and Tessa (Thompson) again.” Okay Hollywood, let’s make it happen. There are a lot of us who are more than ready to see him don those red, blue, and white trunks again. Be sure you catch Creed in theaters nationwide today!

Wonder Woman Movie is FINALLY Filming! New Teasers Released!

Wonder Woman has been the most famous super heroine on the planet for the last seventy-five years. Yet, unlike her DC heroic compatriots, Batman and Superman, she has not had a single film. Some have attributed it to female superhero films not being in hot demand after flops like Elektra and Catwoman. Thankfully the movie gods realized the interpretations of those characters do not live up to the iconography that is Wonder Woman; and that the Amazon Princess deserves her time to shine. As you may already know, filming for Wonder Woman began earlier this week for its 2017 release date! What we know from the official announcement, is the film will be related to the DC Cinematic Universe. We also know it will be part period piece as Diana (Gal Gadot) will be dealing with past and present threats and that Ares, god of war, will be the villain.

Just when you thought it was not possible the Marvel Cinematic Universe just got a whole lot more exciting! Just when we thought Batman and Superman were the only superheroes clashing in 2016, it looks like fellow Avengers and pals, Captain America and Iron Man are going “indestructible shield to repulsor ray!” Why? Well, officially the world governments have tired of superhumans and their vigilantism that may have saved the world, but also caused a lot of collateral damage in the form deaths, near global catastrophes, and an untold amount of destruction. The government wants all of them to register just as Cap and Falcon locate The Winter Soldier, the former’s former sidekick. Although he is seemingly rehabilitated, and ready to become the hero he was meant to be, the government wants him handed over. They seemingly send Iron Man and the Avengers loyal to him after Cap and his defected Avengers. Hence, the “Civil War”a superhero on superhero smack down like we have never seen before.

When it comes to films nowadays so few are inspiring are worthwhile. Perhaps the film industry finally realizes that and decided to “revive” and old Rocky fan favorite in Creed. As you know the film stars Michael B. Jordan as  Adonis Johnson, the youngest and illegitimate son of Apollo Creed. Born after his father’s death he was raised in foster care until being taken in by Apollo’s widow, Mary Anne (Felicia Rashad). Although she tries to steer him away from the world of boxing, his desire to follow his father’s footsteps are great. Against his adoptive mother’s wishes he moves from Los Angeles to Philadelphia to pursue his dreams. However, he soon realizes he will need some special and major help to make it in the professional titles and seeks out his unknowing “uncle,” Rocky Balboa! This film will make you laugh, cry, and most of inspire you. You will even find that little voice inside asking, “What are you fighting for?”

Michael B. Jordan is an amazing actor. He more than made this movie, he has possibly revived the Rocky Franchise. Having Sylvester Stallone also star in the film and have Rocky train him sort of passed the torch of greatness to him by training him. In a way it makes his character, Adonis, the child of Apollo and Creed, the two greatest fictional boxers ever. This is undoubtedly the quintessential Thanksgiving movie for 2015. I am going to see it again! You be sure you catch it in theaters nationwide beginning Thanksgiving day! “Gobble, gobble!”


Bye, Bye Katniss! “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” Ends with a Twist!

The story we love, the characters we empathize with, and a girl armed with a bow and arrow that started a revolution are all back–one more time. Yep, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 has finally arrived, picking up right where Part 1 left off from, with Katniss recovering from injuries, literally from the hands of Peeta. The film shows Katniss as the Mockingjay, now more than ever before, she has become the face of the rebellion and the hope of the people. This time around Katniss must not only deal with President Snow and the forces of The Capital, but enemies within her own ranks, one of them being a brainwashed Peeta.

I have to admit this had to be one of the slower films out of the franchise. Perhaps this is why it opened at a franchise low, at 102 million dollars. That is still a hit in the box office, but many attribute it to blockbuster fatigue. Fans were simply ready for something new. Action may have also played a part. Whereas in the book there seemed to be non-stop action, this film began slow and did not pick up until over halfway in the film. However, when things did pick up the victors of the Hunger Games, Peeta, Finnick, and of course, Katniss, shined! The girl has moves that would make Green Arrow smile. Coincidentally there’s an homage to the DC superhero in the film. See if you can spot it. Still, this is the end of an era. Katniss proved that one girl can make all the difference in the face of tyranny. Still we wish we could have learned more about PanAm and the rest of the world. It just seems like Katniss’s heroic days should not be over. We wonder how the districts and capital of PanAm would do in an international war. Think about it. There has to be more to the world than just them. Be sure you catch the finale of Hunger Games in theaters nationwide!

They say the best secrets are hidden in plain sight, especially when it comes to crimes of passion. Enter the world of the FBI and its fight against terrorism. We meet a tight knit group of agents who are determined to get the job done and seem quite good at it, until tragedy strikes one of their own, Jessica “Jess” Cobb’s (Julia Roberts) daughter, Carolyn, is raped and murdered by an FBI informant. Determined to get justice for Carolyn and revenge for her mother, Ray Caston, (Chiwetel Ejiofor) makes it his mission to bring her killer to justice even if it means going against the Bureau! The lengths, depths, and danger this agent goes through will make you question everything you think you know about this story.

This has to be one of the best films I have seen in a long time. Although it builds up slowly, it soon takes us on an emotional roller coaster for the ages. You can definitely attribute the awesomeness of this film to its three main stars. Julia, Chiwetel, and Nicole Kidman (Claire) have amazing chemistry and energy. The way their characters play off each other truly blurs the lines between doing what is right and remaining loyal to a dear friend. Be sure you catch this amazing film in theaters everywhere TODAY!

Michael B. Jordan (@michaelb4jordan)–and His Oiled Up Pecs–Team Up For “Creed” and The Cover of Men’s Fitness Magazine (@MensFitness)!


Let’s face it, the Turkey Day holiday season will be dominated by two big films, the final installment of The Hunger Games and CreedThe hype and anticipation over the latter film is not just because it is the latest Rocky Franchise film, but because of Michael B. Jordan and that oh so buff body of his! Jordan released this promo picture oiled up, chest out and has the masses going gaga! The sheer amount of muscle he has put on for this role has definitely earned our attention and him on the cover of the latest issue of Men’s Fitness Magazine. Now Michael has never been out of shape or toned, but this later transformation in his physique for the role of Adonis Johnson, son of the late and great Apollo Creed, is of super-heroic proportions! (No shade on the Fantastic Four flop!)

The question all of us (especially me) are asking is what did he do to get so buff? Hopefully his feature in the magazine will reveal his regimen. These Hollywood transformations are akin to magic, but hey if you got the time and the money you can make just about anything happen. Creed premieres Thursday, November 25th. Let’s make sure we support the film. After all just about anything with the stud pictured above in it will be nothing short of amazing!
