Batgirl

 photo f40a28ad-a9c0-4def-bfdb-7310909b2bf8_zps0zdw47ee.jpg

It was just announced that Joss Whedon will write/direct a solo Batgirl movie...

Batgirl is flying solo. The super-heroine is getting her own standalone movie from filmmaker Joss Whedon. Whedon is nearing a deal to write, direct, and produce an untitled Batgirl pic for Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe.

The Batgirl project will be the second movie from DC Films to star a female lead after Gal Gadot’s “Wonder Woman,” which opens June 2.

Whedon would be making a big move from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to its DC counterpart, having written and directed “The Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” for Disney-Marvel. He also created the television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Angel,” “Firefly,” “Dollhouse,” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

This is very exciting news.

I enjoy just about everything that Joss Whedon has done, so far. He writes great characters (especially females) and always has an element of fun in his projects.

Can't wait to see how this all turns out!

What a world

The new trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets was released today...



It certainly looks visually amazing, which I always enjoy. Hopefully the story and action will keep up with the visuals.

The movie opens on July 21st.

A new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer was just released today...



It appears that Spidey has a detachable Spider-Drone on his chest now....crafty.

It also looks like Iron Man might have a larger role that initially thought.

Interesting....

Guess we'll find out all the scoopage when the movie opens on July 7th.

Justice League Trailer

 photo WW_zpsxbbs15k0.jpg

The Justice League trailer was released over the weekend...



It's a pretty good trailer, although it does appear to be as dark and CGI-y as the Batman v Superman trailer, so I'm hoping it's not going to be too shot-on-a-green screen looking in the theater.

But, I'm still looking forward to this and hope the story turns out to be lot better than Batman v Superman.

We shall see...

The movie opens on November 17th.

My plan

I think this new Spider-Man: Homecoming poster pretty much sums up what I plan to do this weekend.

Just without the cool outfit and headphones.

Fargo: Season 3

 photo 9e0fb37b-a6e9-4853-a57d-452f9fd23f5f_zpsgbxy9ypm.png

The first full trailer for the new season of the FX series Fargo was released...



Like the others, this has a great cast (Ewan McGregor playing two characters, Carrie Coon from the Leftovers) and looks as dysfunctional as the first two seasons.

Can't wait!

The new season starts on April 19th.

Where's Rudolph?

Here is the Love, Actually reunion teaser for the upcoming NBC Red Nose Day special in May.



From an original script by the film’s writer-director Richard Curtis, the founder of Red Nose Day, the short film revisits the movie’s characters to discover what they’re up to in 2017. In addition to Grant, Lincoln and Neeson, cast members revisiting their roles from the movie are Martine McCutcheon, Colin Firth, Lucia Moniz, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Olivia Olson, Bill Nighy, Marcus Brigstocke and Rowan Atkinson. 

For the third year of Red Nose Day in the U.S., Americans nationwide wear their red noses and raise money and awareness to help children living in poverty in America and around the world. Red Nose Day has raised more than $60 million in its first two years since launching in the U.S. in 2015.

The short film will air May 25 on NBC as part of The Red Nose Day Special and March 24’s Red Nose Day in the UK on BBC1. 

Count me in, actually!

The first poster for The Dark Tower was released today.

Looks very Inception-esque.

The movie opens on July 28th (same day as Atomic Blonde).

Snowpiercer



As if waiting for the train in the middle of winter isn't challenging enough...

American Gods

 photo d82de41d-22bd-4dd9-9df9-29bf7b43d2c5_zpsgev1odv6.jpg

A new trailer for the Starz upcoming series American Gods was released today....



There are a lot of famous faces in this too...

It’s actually hard to name every single god we get to see here, but it looks like at least Bilquis (Yetide Badaki), Czernobog (Peter Stormare), Zorya Vechernyaya (Cloris Leachman), Mad Sweeney (Pablo Schreiber), Vulcan (Corbin Bernsen), Easter (Kristin Chenoweth), and Mr. Nancy (Orlando Jones) are all getting time. And, of course, Technical Boy (Bruce Langley) stands out from the pack, in terms of new gods.

It looks visually interesting and I do enjoy Cloris Leachman in anything. However, it does look pretty stabby, so that could be a challenge.

I'll see how the reviews are and then decide if it's worth getting Starz or just waiting for it to show up OnDemand.

James Blonde

Charlize Theron has two big movies opening up in the next few months and she appears to be kicking all kinds of ass in both of them. The first trailer is for Atomic Blonde....



It reminds me of the Bourne Identity movies...especially the one-shot fight sequences.

Looks pretty good and she's always awesome to watch.

Atomic Blonde opens on my birthday, July 28th.

Charlize is also playing the villain in the new Fast and the Furious movie...



She is definitely causing just a "wee" bit of chaos for the car kids.

I'm sure lots of cars will go fast and crash and then other things will happen...and then it'll end.

Until the next sequel.

Regardless...I'm still going to see it.

The Fast and Furious 8 opens on April 14th.
