Welcome back friends and soon to be friends! We have a ton of awesome (or in some cases not so awesome) movie news and trailers this week! So let’s jump on in and see what you think!
So this week we are just boiling over with movie news. But let’s start this off with every body’s favorite childhood ruining director… Michael Bays Tmnt 2014. I’m not the biggest fan of the first trailer, but at the same time I see some hope. It seems to be going to the grittier turtles and not the comedy loving green fighting machines many of us grew up with. That’s ok. Not a big deal. What is a big deal you ask? Casting Johnny Knoxville to be Leo? Not Mikey or a different character? You picked Mr.Jackass himself to be the virtuous warrior? Hmmmm… not sure about that one guys… but then there is the new T.V. spot “Brothers” that was released this week (link here) with our first look at Master Splinter… With a fu manchu…with Tony Shalhaub doing the voice.
Loved the trailer. Splinter looks pretty cool (from what you can actually see) and the voice sound awesome. Nothing like that I expected him to sound like. So long story short there is still hope for this movie… very little but hey, hope is hope I guess, but let’s move on
So word is that Tatum has been in talks to play Remy. Let’s get it out of the way… I can hear people chanting and booing from here. Now let’s be real. He’s got the accent down (don’t believe me? Go to YouTube and look it up. He’s from the south) and could handle the physical aspects of playing Remy. Here is what Tatum had to say about the role:
“Gambit’s really the only X-Men I’ve ever loved,” the 22 Jump Street star told MTV News following Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards. “I don’t know, I guess just being from down south… I just related to him. He’s suave. He’s the most un-X-Man X-Man that’s ever been in X-Men — other than maybe Wolverine. He’s kind of the antihero; he’s a thief. He’s not even a hero. He’s walking the line of gray.”
I’m glad to see an actor up for a role and have a love for the character. I, like I said, have no problem with the choice. I only have one question… what was wrong with this guy?
Am I the only one that like the role Remy played in the Wolverine movie? Now there are plenty of parts to that movie that I want to forget but this is not one of them. Call me crazy but why isn’t he up to reprise the role if he is to be used in more movies? Guess that’s just how the cards fall on this one…at least your girlfriend won’t fight to see it
We have one final movie… short and sweet… Days of Future past is going to be incredible. You can say what you want about Quicksilvers’ outfit or the design of the sentinels (below) but all in all… it’s going to be a great movie I believe.
The character I want to see the most is Bishop. I have loved that character for a long time and to finally see him in a movie will be nice. Especially cause he looks real and straight out of the comic book (kinda)
