Enjoy the New Year…And the Movies!!!

The New Year is practically here, and if you’re looking for a way to fill in some extra time off work, why not see a good movie or two? This week there is a plethora of big releases, most of which have already been released in select cities and are seeing additional expansions. Here are some notables to check out…

Live By Night

Ben Affleck’s new Prohibition-era gangster drama is now playing, but initial reviews and audience reactions have not been good. Personally I’m not a big Ben Affleck fan, but the rest of the supporting cast, including Elle Fanning and Brendan Gleason. That said, Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams both star in a new movie called Manchester by the Sea from writer/director Kenneth Lonergan, so maybe see that one instead. Continue reading

First Trailer For ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Now Available

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally opening in theaters this week, movie-goers are starting to look to the New Year to get their blockbuster fix. Over the last week we have seen new, full-length trailers for Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and X-Men: Apocalypse, which will bring the comic-movie circuit back to life after the Star Wars bubble finally bursts. This week, however, we have a new trailer for another sequel we have been keeping our eyes on, in the form of Independence Day: Resurgence. Original ID director Roland Emmerich (The Day After Tomorrow, 2012) is back with returning veteran actors Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, The Grand Budapest Hotel), Bill Pullman (Spaceballs, Lake Placid), Vivica A. Fox (Juwanna Mann, Kill Bill Vol. 1), and Oscar-winner Judd Hirsch (Ordinary People, A Beautiful Mind), leading a new generation of actors including Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games, Paranoia), Joey King (Crazy Stupid Love, The Conjuring), Maika Monroe (Labor Day, It Follows), and William Fichtner (Heat, Black Hawk Down). Picking up 20 years after the events of the original film, we find scientist David Levinson (Goldblum) and former President James Whitmore (Pullman) facing a new insurgence of alien visitors that will test the world’s new defense systems that were developed using the technology of the original invaders. Unfortunately for fans of the original, Will Smith will not be reprising his role, and instead the plot will focus on a new-generation fighter pilot (played by Hemsworth) named Morrison, but other than that the rest of the story looks (on the surface) pretty legitimate. As always, we’ll have to wait for the final product to know for sure. Stay tuned for further updates.

‘Self/Less’ And ‘The Gallows’ Opening In Theaters This July 10th


Movie-goers will have plenty of choices when it comes to suspense in this week’s new releases. First up is the new dramatic thriller Self/Less from director Tarsem Singh (Immortals, Mirror Mirror), starring Sir Ben Kingsley (Schindler’s List, Shutter Island) and Ryan Reynolds (Safe-House, Woman in Gold). The film comes from screenwriting brothers David and Alex Pastor (Carriers, The Last Days) and also stars Natalie Martinez (End of Watch, Broken City) and Matthew Goode (Watchmen, The Imitation Game). You can watch the trailer above. Also coming out this week is a new horror flick, The Gallows, following a group of high school students who attempt to pay tribute to a horrific accident that took place at the school 20 years earlier, only to find the spirits of those dead still remain in the shadows. I’m sure you have already seen a bunch of previews for this one on TV, and while it entails new subject matter, it looks essentially like a Blair Witch Project meets Michael Myers mix, with relatively unknown actors and producers. That being said, this is the kind of movie you should definitely watch in the theaters for the full effect, so find yourself a date and enjoy!

‘Entourage’ Opening In Theaters This Friday, June 5th, 2015


At long last fans will be able to see the next chapter in Vince, E, Turtle, and Drama’s epic conquest of Hollywood. Picking up 5 years after the series ended, Entourage finds Vince moving into uncharted territory with his directorial debut with the help of his now studio-head agent Ari Gold. Series creator Doug Ellin (Phat Beach, Kissing A Fool) returned to write and direct the film with returning cast members Adrian Grenier (A.I., Hart’s War), Kevin Connolly (John Q, The Notebook), Jeremy Piven (Smokin Aces, The Kingdom), Kevin Dillon (Platoon, The Doors), and Jerry Ferrara (Think Like A Man, Lone Survivor), as well as supporting cast members Emmanuelle Chriqui (Detroit Rock City, Wrong Turn), Debi Mazar (Goodfellas, Collateral), Rex Lee (Suburgatory, Young & Hungry), Perry Reeves (Old School, Mr. and Mrs. Smith), and Rhys Coiro (MacGruber, Straw Dogs).

New Drama ‘Woman In Gold’ With Helen Mirren And Ryan Reynolds Now Playing


The new drama from director Simon Curtis (Five Days, My Week With Marilyn), Woman in Gold, is now playing in theaters. Starring Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren (The Queen, Hitchcock) and Ryan Reynolds (Waiting, Safe House), the film follows the story of Maria Altman (Mirren), a Jewish woman who seeks to regain her family’s lost artwork that was stolen by the Nazi party in World War II with the help of her lawyer Randol Schoenberg (Reynolds). The film is based on the memoirs of Altman and Schoenberg and was adapted for film by screenwriter Alexi Kaye Campbell (Possession, Planespotting). Included in the supporting cast are actors Daniel Bruhl (The Bourne Ultimatum, Inglorious Bastards), Katie Holmes (Phone Booth, Batman Begins), Tatiana Maslany (Eastern Promises, Heartland), Max Irons (Being Julia, Red Riding Hood), and Jonathan Pryce (Tomorrow Never Dies, Pirates of the Caribbean). The announcement for the film came around the same time as The Monuments Men was released in theaters in February 2014, so I’m sure there will be comparisons made between the two, but definitely give it a chance nonetheless.

Director Marc Webb Set To Direct Amazing Spider-Man 3, Not Sure Yet About #4


With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 coming to theaters this May, there is a lot of buzz going on around Hollywood about director Marc Webb and actor Andrew Garfield and whether or not they will be involved in both the third and fourth installments of the series. Sony Pictures has already set release dates for the next two movies, the third movie being set for release in June, 2016 and the fourth film set for 2018. Variety recently reaffirmed that both Webb and Garfield would be returning for the third film, but beyond that everything is still in the air seeing as there is no official contract. Nevertheless the two will be very busy in the next several years. Sony also recently announced that the Spider-Man franchise would bring to theaters several spin-offs over the next few years, much like the X-Men series has done with Wolverine. There is no telling whether or not Webb will direct any of these, but in the meantime Andrew Garfield will be busy working on a number of dramas between his superhero duties. The actor will be taking a role in Martin Scorsese’s next picture, Silence, as well as 99 Houses, and The Woman in Gold with Helen Mirren, which follows a similar story to George Clooney’s Monuments Men, but from a courtroom perspective. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters this May; check out the trailer here on MADE.

For Those That Didn’t Know…

It recently came to my attention that my roommate was not aware that the Austin Powers film series is a parody of the Sean Connery James Bond films from the 1960s. Having discovered this I felt I had to write something about it and possibly inform others that may not be aware! Sean Connery was the first actor to portray James Bond in the film series from producers Albert R. Broccoli and Harry Saltzman. All of the films that were made with Connery came from the books and short stories of author Ian Fleming, whose first Bond novel, Casino Royale, had already been adapted into an unsuccessful film in the 1950s. Mike Myers and director Jay Roach made the first Austin Powers movie in 1997, two years after Pierce Brosnan had brought the Bond franchise into the 90s with GoldenEye. The movie contained a number of major references to the Bond series, some of which are listed below.

1. Dr. Evil and Ernst Stavro Blofeld

In the original films, James Bond faced a series of obstacles that were all the work of one man: the director of the SPECTRE organization Ernst Stavro Blofeld. SPECTRE was an organization had expanded on the ideals of the Soviet organization SMERSH. The acronym stands for SPecial Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion, and as the films progressed so did the endeavors of SPECTRE to begin wars between international countries and acquire a massive amount of wealth by threatening the united world organizations. Blofeld was last seen in Connery’s last role as Bond, Diamonds Are Forever, and the character never appeared in any of Roger Moore’s Bond films.

2. Mini-Me and Diamonds Are Forever

Mini-Me first appeared in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. The title of the movie is a play on the Roger Moore Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, which came out in 1977. While Mini-Me is a clone that is only an 1/8th the size of Dr. Evil, in Diamonds Are Forever, Ernst Blofeld produces several clones of himself by putting volunteers under plastic surgery and implanting a vocal chip in their throats.

3. Pussy Galore and Alotta Fagina

Pussy Galore was portrayed by Honor Blackman in the third Bond film Goldfinger (1964), the most successful installment in the series at the time. Although she was employed by Bond’s nemesis in the film, she comes to his aid in the end and helps Bond stop Goldfinger from robbing Fort Knox in Kentucky. Many characters in the Austin Powers series have been based around Pussy Galore, including Alotta Fagina and Ivwana Humpalot.

4. OddJob and Random Task

In Goldfinger, James Bond must face a henchman by the name of OddJob. OddJob is a large Vietnamese man who throws a gentleman’s hat that has been fitted with a razor sharp blade around the brim. In the Austin Powers series, Dr. Evil has a henchman named Random Task, who throws a shoe rather than a hat to take out his enemies. You can see an image from the original scene from Goldfinger above.

5. Goldfinger and Goldmember

The third Austin Powers movie is titled Goldmember, and has a villain of the same name. Both are a direct parody on the third Bond film Goldfinger, who is also the villain of the film. Both are obsessed with gold, although Mike Myers brought it to an unconventional level for the Austin Powers version, and both will stop at nothing to acquire as much gold as possible.
