Trailer Park Tuesday, Mad Max: Fury Road

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa.

Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

The special effects and the cast look amazing in this trailer. I wasn’t a fan of the original Mad Max movie, but I’m thinking I might enjoy seeing this one with my husband while it’s in theaters.

The Expendables 3, The Cast, The Excitement & Will They Make A Fourth?

The cast at Cannes 2014

Cannes_2014_2

Fans of gray-haired action franchise The Expendables should be able to see the third in the series by the time they read this. It’s been released in London and is due to hit theaters in the US on August 15th. The cast is amazing, adding to the line-ups from the first two – I can’t wait to see it!

Cast
Personally, I found that The Expendables 2 was great fun, I’m a big fan of exploding movies. The original movie from 2010 was built on nicely, with bigger and better explosions and funnier dialog. Bringing even more muscle – the third installment has Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford and Antonio Banderas joining existing cast members Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sly Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren and Jet Li.

Excitement

There are a huge number of explosions of course, kicking off shortly after our aging heroes meet up with Mel Gibson’s character, Conrad Stonebanks, an arms dealer who likes to hide out in the deserted shell of a casino in some unspecified third world country. Early reviews suggest that, despite all the shoot-ups and effects, you might be better off playing a few hands of Blackjack in an online casino like GamingClub.com, (Mel Gibson certainly could have done with a little practice there, maybe he wouldn’t have run out of cash when he visited a Casino in Vegas a while back) than wading through this movie, if it’s a raised heart- rate you’re looking for – though if you’re as old as the average age of the cast that’s probably not such a great idea.

Early Reviews

The rumours from across the Atlantic are that the joke The Expendables is based on is beginning to wear a little thin. It seems that cramming another bunch of retirement-age action heroes onto the screen has been subject to the Law Of Diminishing returns. Stallone’s co-written screenplay gives each star more or less equal screen time, but given the sheer number of them, it does tend to interfere with the smooth unfolding of the plot.

Injuries

The theme of the movie, broadly speaking, is the teaming up of old and young, as the veteran members join up with the youngsters to defeat the evil Stone banks. Both older and younger cast members got into trouble while filming; Jason Statham found himself hurtling towards a 50 foot drop into the Black Sea when the brakes failed on his truck, only managing to survive by diving out of the open door. Stallone was injured as well, after an on-set fall left him with a metal plate in his back.

A fourth movie

It seems that whether you’ll want to see The Expendables 3 will depend mostly on how much you enjoyed the last two, and how much you want to see all those older guys on screen together. I have to say I’m actually looking forward to it; I’m expecting it to be cheesy, I’m expecting it to be pretty exciting, and I’m also expecting to be entertained. But, will they make a fourth?

Trailer Park Tuesday, Benicio del Toro as Pablo Escobar in Paradise Lost

paradise-lost-movie_poster

Young surfer Nick (Hutcherson) thinks all his dreams have come true when he goes to visit his brother in Colombia. Against an idyllic backdrop of blue lagoons and white beaches he falls madly in love with a beautiful Colombian girl called Maria (Traisac). It all seems perfect until he meets her uncle, one Pablo Escobar (del Toro).

I’ve been waiting to see footage of this film for what feels like forever! If you know me offline, or have been reading my blog for any real amount of time, then you know Benicio del Toro is my very favorite actor, and has been for over a decade. One might say I’m a tad-bit obsessed. I guess I can live with that. Anyway this teaser looks amazing. The shot where Benicio is giving the look – you “the look” it gives me chills already. I am so looking forward to seeing this movie on the big screen!

How about you? Do you think you’ll be seeing Paradise Lost?
