Iron Man 3 Trailer is just Awesome!

Iron Man 3 Trailer is just Awesome!

Before May 3rd arrives (or April 25th for those in Europe) watch the new Iron Man 3 trailer that Marvel just released. Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Gwyneth Paltrow as his assistant Pepper Potts and Ben Kingsley as the movie main antagonist – The Mandarin. Don Cheadle reprises his Iron Man 2 role as Colonel Rhodes while Guy Pearce plays Aldrich Killian, a man who has created a dangerous virus (but that is not elaborated on in the trailer). I...

Iron Man 3 posters revealed + Pepper Potts isn’t happy with Tony’s Helmet!

Iron Man 3 posters revealed + Pepper Potts isn’t happy with Tony’s Helmet!

I have never been a huge comic book fan, especially not superhero comics. The medium was always too much of a go-between of novel and motion action. If, on the other hand, a movie is made based on a superhero comic I will give it a try depending on the reviews and whether or not it maintains at least a semblance of plausibility (Batman, Kick-ass and The Walking Dead). Iron Man is one of those franchises and despite a disappointing second installment I am...

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire victory posters released!

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire victory posters released!

The first thing on your mind when you hear ‘Hunger Games’ is Jennifer Lawrence photo-shopped picture on every billboard and internet banner there is. This year we get to do it all over again as the sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is slated for a November 22nd release in the US. And to mark the fact that there are only nine months left to release Lionsgate Studios has released two preview posters of antagonists Katniss Evergreen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) on their victory...

New slave Leia picture found (that means Carrie Fisher in a Metal Bikini)!

New slave Leia picture found (that means Carrie Fisher in a Metal Bikini)!

So, what now? You just might be thinking. Has George Lucas changed his mind on whether Greedo shoots first or was it definitely Han Solo. Or has it been confirmed that one of the spin-off Star Wars movies is going to be a mash-up with other J.J. Abrams franchises such as Mission Impossible and Star Trek. No. Someone uncovered a new image of Carrie Fisher as slave Leia wearing the infamous metal bikini she wore in Star Wars Return of the Jedi. The...

Zoe Saldana in wetsuit as Uhura - Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness HD pictures!

About a week ago Entertainment Weekly posted an article about Star Trek Into Darkness in their latest issue. The article itself contained only outdated data as they always do now in the information age. However, they did include some spectacular images from the movie itself such one of Benedict Cumberbatch as John Harrison and Zoe Saldana as Uhura. As it was from a magazine the resolution was poor. Now that has been remedied. Below you can find 5 high-resolution images of those EW shots. I will definitely...

Star Trek Video Game (2013) behind the scenes footage from Namco Bandai!

Star Trek Video Game (2013) behind the scenes footage from Namco Bandai!

Game developers Namco Bandai have posted this ‘making of’ trailer for their upcoming Star Trek Video Game on Youtube. When I say ‘making of’ it is actually a new trailer with commentary from developers and studio officials. I must say it is the best trailer for the game I have seen so far. The trailer highlights the co-op elements and suggests that not only have Captain Kirk and Commander Spock different personalities that will show in the storyline but their style of gameplay is...

Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi flick ‘The Host’ preview!

Andrew Niccol’s sci-fi flick ‘The Host’ preview!

This March Andrew Niccol will release his latest movie The Host based on the novel with the same title written by Stephanie Meyer (famous from the Twilight Saga). I must admit that I was only vaguely aware of the movie and so far tried to avoid because of its association with the afore-mentioned Twilight writer. However, upon reading the synopsis and viewing the trailer I think it is at least worthy of proper preview. In essence the story resembles others relying on teenage-angst and...

New Star Trek Video Game Trailer!

New Star Trek Video Game Trailer!

Namco Bandai has released a new trailer for their upcoming Star Trek Video Game entitled ‘Salvation’. We’re calling it the Star Trek Video Game because it doesn’t have an official subtitle to distinguish it from the 2009 movie. STVG has been getting the same kind of buzz among gamers as the upcoming J.J. Abrams movie Star Trek Into Darkness scheduled for release in May this year. The Star Trek Video Game is itself scheduled for a April 23rd release on PC, Xbox 360 and...

Total Recall - Three breasted girl

Total Recall (2012) Movie Review!

This summer the remake to the 1990 movie Total Recall from Paul Verhoeven was released in theaters. Frankly it was a remake nobody was really waiting for as the original starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is just brilliant. So instead of a movie that adopts a Phillip K. Dick story that has not yet appeared on the big screen we get movie based on one that already has left a big legacy. The remake also choose do away with the whole Mars subplot and...
