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.

“The Infiltrator” Film Trailer is Here!

infiltrator hey mikey atl

Movie buffs, gather ’round because there’s a brand new crime drama coming to a theater near you. “The Infiltrator” will star Benjamin Bratt, Bryan Cranston, Diane Kruger, John Leguizamo and Amy Ryan and is based on a true story, the story of the man who was able to befriend Pablo Escobar’s top lieutenant and infiltrate Escobar’s drug empire.

Based on a true story, Federal agent Robert “Bob” Mazur (played by Bryan Cranston) goes deep undercover to infiltrate Pablo Escobar’s drug trafficking scene plaguing the nation in 1986 by posing as slick, money-laundering businessman Bob Musella. Teamed up with impulsive and streetwise fellow agent Emir Abreu (who will be played by John Leguizamo) and rookie agent posing as his fiancé Kathy Ertz (played by Diane Kruger), Mazur befriends Escobar’s top lieutenant Roberto Alcaino (portrayed by Benjamin Bratt). Navigating a vicious criminal network in which the slightest slip-up could cost him his life, Mazur risks it all building a case that leads to indictments of 85 drug lords and the corrupt bankers who cleaned their dirty money, along with the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, one of the largest money-laundering banks in the world.

This film sounds like it’s going to be the jaw dropping, scene stealing, and sitting on the edge movie we’ve been craving. “The Infiltrator” is set to hit movie theaters July 15, 2o16. Who’s heading to AMC with me?

First Look: Elizabeth Banks (@ElizabethBanks) as “Rita Repulsa” in New Power Rangers Movie!

elizabeth banks rita repulsa hey mikey atl

It looks like Elizabeth Banks has definitely shed her Pitch Perfect and Hunger Games roots! It was announced late last year that she had signed to portray the original nemesis of The Power Rangers, Rita Repulsa, in the cinematic reboot of the popular series. They definitely went a completely different route with her look, as she does not resemble the original character by any means. Honestly, we do not mind it! Everything from her gold talons, the chic-ness of her mean green costume, and even that snatched pony tail scream villainous bitch! The green may be a direct reference to the Green Ranger, the sixth Power Ranger who was initially evil and commands the Dragonzord.

What’s Next? The X-Men Franchise After “Apocalypse!”

x-force hey mikey atl

X-Men: Apocalypse is a little over a month next, and it marks the end of the New Class trilogy. We now wonder what is next for Fox’s biggest franchise to date? The merry mutants have entertained us on the Big Screen for sixteen years now and we have watched them fight supervillains, mutant terrorists, corrupt government officials, and killer robots. Now, with news of a second Deadpool film, X-Force movie, and a script on the New Mutants; it seems our favorite mutants will live on forever. Let’s give you the details on these three highly anticipated films!

Deadpool 2

It is official that Deadpool, the film centered around everyone’s favorite “Merc with a Mouth” is a bona fide hit! Despite being Rated R and somewhat gruesome it has solidified its place in cinematic history as the highest grossing R-rated movie to date. The next film is sure to deliver all the humor, gore, and action of the first–with the confirmed appearance of Cable! If you did not know, Cable is the son of the X-Men’s leader, Cyclops, and a clone of Jean Grey, Madelyne Pryor.

The Tale of a Man Cub–Disney’s Jungle Book (@TheJungleBook) is The Story To See!

the jungle book hey mikey atl

The Jungle Book is one the most beloved stories a child can ever read. The tale of Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a “man cub” raised in the jungle by wolves is legendary and even in 2016 just as exciting and as riveting as the day Rudyard Kipling completed its first draft. Thanks to the media giant we know and love as Disney, the latest rendition of this tale is live action and it looks amazing! The film shows Mowgli as he struggles to learn the ways of the wolves.

His adoptive mother, Raksha (Lupita Nyong’o), dotes on him but their leader, Akilah insists he not resort to his “tricks” and focus on being a wolf and falling in line with the pack. With Bagheera watching over him as well, his life seems simple, until a drought draws out Shere Khan (Idris Elba)–a bengal tiger with a deep hatred for mankind. Feared and loathed by the other animals for his cruelty and deadliness, he demands the pack hand Mowgli over to him at the end of the drought. Instead, they opt to return him to the Man Village, protected by the feared and revered, “Red Flower” (fire). Although Mowgli resists, he soon learns Shere Khan means business! It will take all of his tricks and a helping hand from a few friends to get this man cub out of the jungle and away from the tiger’s claws.

Disney has been adapting many of its animated films into live action features. However, none of them compare to this film. You really get the sense of just how dangerous and hard it is for Mowgli to be a human in a realm dominated by superior beasts. Even more so I love how they incorporated the songs, Bear Necessities and I Wanna Be Like You! Whether you’re four or sixty-four this is a movie the entire family can enjoy, so be sure you check it out. After all it’ll be good to (singing) “forget about your worries and your strifes” for at least an hour or two!

 

The Crew is Back! “Barbershop: The Next Cut” (@barbershopmovie) Hits w/ Laughs & Lesson!

barbershop the next cut hey mikey atl

It has been awhile since we have seen the Barbershop crew, and thankfully Ice Cube, Cedric The Entertainer, and company had sense enough to bring us another installment of this beloved franchise. Yep, Calvin, Eddie, Shelly (Eve), Jimmy (Sean Patrick Thomas), and JD (Anthony Anderson) are back with new loves, new friends, no co-workers, and teenage kids to deal with. Calvin’s barbershop has managed to survive the wave of new businesses that pushed out many others in his neighborhood by taking on a business partner, Angie.

His son, Jalen (Michael Rainey, Jr.), is now a teenager and attends school with the son of Shelly’s husband, Rashad, also a fellow barber in the shop. The shop’s peace is short lived as the crime and violence of Chicago pervades the lives of everyone there. Jalen too finds himself on the opposite of the law as he pressured to join a local gang. Calvin must choose between keeping the barbershop he owns and loves and doing what is best for his son by moving to a better neighborhood in the city.

What To Expect From Iron Man In “Captain America: Civil War! (@CaptainAmerica)”

civil-war-header

Marvel’s next film may be titled as a Captain America sequel, but for all intents and purposes it appears to be more of an Avengers movie. Captain America: Civil War will bring together a massive ensemble of characters, and though Hulk and Thor will likely be missing, new characters like Black Panther and Spider-Man will make the cast feel fuller than ever. And as tends to be the case in ensemble Marvel films, Iron Man is probably going to steal the show.

Robert Downey, Jr.

Robert Downey, Jr.

It’s something Marvel Studios may not have planned for in the beginning, but they seem to have embraced it over the eight years since 2008’s Iron Man. Robert Downey, Jr. is the biggest star Marvel has, and he’s turned Tony Stark/Iron Man into the primary protagonist in a sea of headline heroes. That said, he’s always a little bit different. In some films he’s clowning around, in others he’s deadly serious; in some he’s fooling around with his suits and in others he keeps it relatively simple. So what can we expect this time around?
