Here’s the second trailer for Disney’s latest offering Big Hero 6, an adaptation of a Marvel creation, although you wouldn’t know it as Disney fail to give the company any credit in this production, even if they are now owned by them.
Big Hero 6 is set in a futuristic San Fransico which has blended somehow with Tokyo and revolves around robotic prodigy Hiro Hamada. He is forced to employ the help of his friends and his closest companion, who just happens to be a cutting-edge robot named Baymax, to help save his city from impending doom.
The film hits cinemas in 3D on November 7, 2014.
Bit late to the cosplay orgy with this one but here’s the first official look at the new Spiderman movie.
Anyone who ever doubted Andrew Garfield’s ability to fill out the latex onesie has obviously never watched the actor in the amazing Red Riding Trilogy. The cat can act, end of.
But really though, another Spiderman movie? Another superhero origin movie? When will this madness end?
Here’s the official trailer for Captain America: The First Avenger, starring Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones and Hugo Weaving.
They should really just have named this film Captain Roids: The First Abuser, about a man who goes from being weak, puny and downtrodden to a musclebound Adonis after accidentally injecting himself with anabolic steroids and shrinking his balls in the process.
We’ll still go and see this film simply because we’re suckers for World War II movies especially one which have a hard-bitten Major addressing a collection of hand picked soldiers in a courtyard, explaining to them just how dangerous the mission is that lies ahead of them. That kind of scene has never been done before…oh, unless you count this or this of course.
