Let’s Hear It For The Girls! “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” (@NeighborsMovie) is Non-Stop Laughter!

neighbors 2 hey mikey atl

It’s all laughs and war in the hit sequel to 2014’s Neighbors! Mac (Seth Brogen) and Kelly Radner (Rose Byrne) are expecting their second daughter and ready to move to a roomier house in suburbia. They finally find a couple who wants the house, but it is placed on escrow (the explanation of which is hilarious) for thirty days before being sold. All seems well until an independent sorority, “Kappa Nu,” founded by Morgan (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her two friends who just want to be able to have fun and party without the harassment of frat boys. Not wanting to spook the buyers, The Radners’ reasoning and the girls’ determination to party soon cause a prank war of the ages!

The girls, however, may have the edge as they are being backed by Teddy (Zac Efron), who is currently feeling undervalued and unappreciated by the people in his life. Get ready to laugh so hard you can’t breathe and cry so hard your eyes get red! Summer is almost here and what better way to kick it off with than a movie that delivers the laughs!

This week, however, as people “did press” to promote Captain America: Civil War, there were two interesting quotes that suggest the Black Widow movie is finally closer to happening. Marvel Studios currently has nine movies scheduled from now until the end of 2019, including four team movies and five solo films (including Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and yes, Ant-Man and the Wasp). So, what’s in the works for 2020 and beyond? That question was poised to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently, and he came right out and said what many fans have been asking for. Responding to a list that included Falcon, Hawkeye, and War Machine, Kevin Feige replied, “Of the characters that you’ve just mentioned I would say certainly the one creatively and emotionally that we are most committing to doing is Black Widow.” Feige also clarified that discussions were “ongoing,” so Marvel is not yet ready to confirm Black Widow, but… they’re working on it. Marvel announced their slate extending to 2019 in 2014, so there’s a very good chance that 2016 might be the year that they announce their Phase 4 films for 2020 and beyond. And Black Widow might be in there.

Unlikely Heroes! X-Men: Apocalypse Brings Interesting Twist to “New Class” Trilogy!

462-film-page-large

The X-Men are back–well sort of–in the eighties! Marvel’s merry mutants have returned to close out the New Class trilogy in a rather “apocalyptic” way! The film begins with En Sabah Nur (Apocalypse, played by Oscar Isaac), the world’s first mutant, born in Ancient Egypt. His life force is waning and requires a new body to transfer his consciousness into. The process usually leaves him rejuvenated and having acquired the powers of whatever body he has taken over. However, it is also when he is at his most vulnerable. He is betrayed by a few of followers and buried under rubble in hibernation for thousands of years. He awakens to find the world not as he expected, believing “the weak” have taken power through religion, government, laws and systems. He sets out to create a new world by destroying the old one!

The Clash of Titans! “Captain America: Civil War” (@CaptainAmerica) is The Best Superhero Film Yet!

Zemo

Captain America: Civil War has made its debut AND it is PERFECT! Fans have dubbed this film as “The Avengers 2.5,” and they were on spot on! This film had more superheroes than any previous Marvel Studio film, and its story line is amazing. Finally, The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) takes a page from The DC Cinematic Universe and addresses collateral damage. The story begins with The Avengers taking on a group of terrorists, led by Crossbones, trying to smuggle a biological weapon out of a foreign country.

The action starts from the jump as we see the newest Avengers, Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), utilizing their skills and training to take down to help. All seems under control and the bad guys are stopped until an unwittingly miscalculation by Scarlet Witch causes the death of hundreds! The world reacts by demanding The Avengers become subordinate to The United Nations, and answer for the destruction they have caused in previous battles while defending the world.  The team becomes divided as Iron Man, feeling some guilt for the lives lost in the destruction of Slocovia, agrees to government control. War Machine (Don Cheadle), Vision, and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) follow suit. Captain America (Chris Evans), however disagrees, feeling government intervention will prevent them from being proactive in protecting the world.

Revenge Served Cold! “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” (@TheHuntsman) is a Chilling Hit!

P8fFt

These live action fairy tale movies are really becoming more and more riveting. The virtual magic of CGI and the hotness that is Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, and Chris Hemsworth is truly chemistry for any hit movie. In The Huntsman: Winter’s War we are whisked back to the world of Snow White, where we learn “Happily Ever After” still has not been attained. There are other evils in the world–colder, crueler ones. In the Deep North, the Evil Queen Ravenna’s younger sister, Freya, rules with a frozen fist. Her loss of love and her own daughter, unlocks her icy powers, and commands her to take the children of the people she subjugates.

These children are raised to believe love is a sin and trained to become her huntsmen, an army of elite fighters that succeed in conquering all the kingdoms of the North. Freya, however, is not satisfied and seeks to conquer Snow White’s kingdom in the South, but will need the power of her sister’s mirror to do so.
