Movie News: James Gunn joins Warner Bros and help write Suicide Squad 2 movie

Remember DC’s movie Suicide Squad that premiered in 2016? I got some interesting news to share in regards to this movie. It has been announced yesterday that filmmaker James Gunn has joined with Warner Bros and DC comics and will be involved with the upcoming, planned movie Suicide Squad 2. This turn of events also persuaded actor Dave Bautista to wanting to join the movie and wants to work with James Gunn.

If you don’t why this is a big deal, I will tell you real brief about James Gunn and Disney. James Gunn was in charge and help create the iconic Marvel Cinematic Films Guardians of the Galaxy and the sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The plans for a third movie is currently on hold since Disney fired and dismissed James Gunn for making controversial jokes in his Twitter about rape and pedophilia. With this dilemma, the third movie is on break and Disney is trying to decide to either go with the script James Gunn made, find a new director and rewrite the story or scrap it. This startling news has even led Drax actor Dave Bautista to stand up against Disney and is willing to leave the team.

Funimation license live-action Death Note movies

Do you like live-action movies based on anime? I got some news for you. It has been announced by Funimation on Friday that they got the license to release home video sets of the Japanese version of the Death Note movies. The movies that got licensed are Death Note, Death Note: The Last Name, and Death Note: Light up the NEW World. According to ANN, Funimation will release these movies in subtitled only. The first two movies will be bundled together and these three movies will be available to purchase on January 22, 2019.

Here is a side note: The first two movies have a dub version with the English voice actors from the anime but they are owned by Viz Media. So if you don’t care about the dub and you only want the movies in Blu-Ray, DVD and digital release, wait for the Funimation. If you want to watch the movie in dub, you might have to look far and wide for the Viz Media versions. If you don’t like the American Netflix version, get these instead!

The movies I seen in spring and summer 2018

https://siriuswrites.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/ca2.gif?w=500

Since we are reaching the end of summer, it’s time to prepare for the last two seasons of 2018: fall and winter. With fall coming in, I had a good time with spring and summer. Spring time for me was good because not only I got a job which gives me good pay and a friendly environment, but this is around the time I started to watch a lot movies in theaters. Summer may have been intense in my job, but it was a good time to sit down and have of a bucket of popcorn and watch a movie with the AC in theaters. 2018 has been a great year to watch some movies and it feels like every year it’s going to be even better. Today I am going to be sharing you the movies I have seen in the spring and summer season. Funny how can I keep track of the movie seasons and not anime seasons.

Marvel Avengers: Infinity War (April 27th)

If you are a Marvel fan, you probably already expected this movie to be a hit even after the first weekend. 10 years of building up to this point, Disney and Marvel did the impossible and made the biggest crossover movie. What started off with the first Avengers movie and now in 2018, we have the Avengers teaming up with Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy and even the high selling hero and movie character Black Panther. This movie also placed the spotlight on the anticipated villain Thanos and demonstrated his monstrous power. I really love this movie and I saw this movie right after day one of my job on May 4th; the original release date before it got moved up.

Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25th)

Star Wars is very popular in sci-fi genre and it’s dedicated to the fans. Ever since Disney bought Star Wars, Disney has been dishing out everything that has to do with Star Wars. From the video games, TV series, comics, Disney will do anything make money of Star Wars. Besides the main story movies like Episodes 7 and 8, they also squeeze in spinoff movies such as Rogue One. Their recent spinoff movie focused on the young Han Solo and how he met inconic characters like Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca. This movie was different for sure, but in a way, it was fun to watch. I like seeing Han get sassy and try to outsmart his enemies. However, based on reports and news, this movie sadly fell after opening weekend and people wanted to focus on the Episode movies. In results, Disney decided to take a break of spinoff films and are now working on the last movie Episode 9 until someone else decides to make a new trilogy outside the Skywalker story.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 6th)

After going through Infinity War, I wanted to take a break from the pain and have a good laugh. Taking place after Captain America: Civil War, Scott is under arrest and doing whatever it takes to kill boredom. When Hank Prym and Hope gets curious of the Quantaum Realm, they decide to make a goal to visit this tiny world in hopes to finding Hank’s wife who disappeared. Scott decides to help him, but this also attracts a villain who goes by Ghost who can phase through walls with technology. In short, she has some quantum powers and she’s seeking cure for this powers. Scott is going to have to shrink and enlarge himself if he wants to not only help Hank and Hope, but also try not to violate his house arrest. This movie also ties into Infinity War as well. I really enjoyed this movie for the humor. My family enjoyed it and we were able to forget the pain left from Infinity War… for a moment. I can’t wait for Ant-Man to show up in the next Avengers movie.

Incredibles 2 (June 15th)

It took about 14 years and we finally got the long awaited sequel to Pixar’s superhero family movie. Brad Bird returns to create another masterpiece and unites the voices of the heroes in this sequel. Taking place right after the first movie, the movie focuses on Elasticgirl (wife of Mr. Incredible) and shows off the awesome hero skills and prove that the world is ready to accept heroes. While the wife is busy, Bob is a stay home dad who has to take care of the kids and their issues like Violet’s boyfriend problem, Dash’s math questions and discovering Jack-Jack’s powers. This movie was so cool and seeing this really gives me the same vibes when I watched the first movie for the first time. This movie was so good that it came back in theaters in the Labor Day weekend.

Christopher Robin (August 3rd)

This movie was a guilty pleasure and the reason why I watched this movie because of nostalgia. If you are familiar with movie Hook with Robin Williams, you might know the central theme. Disney creates a live-action moving depicting an adult Christopher Robin who has forgotten his childhood friends Pooh and the rest of the gang in 100 Acre Woods. After going through life, Christopher has forgotten to have fun and now focuses only on work and succeeding life. It’s not until Pooh shows up to him and asks for help after losing his friends. I will admit, I did cry  while watching this movie. What got me was that the voice of Pooh was done by none other than Jim Cummings and hearing Pooh care about Christopher for years really hit me. It taught me that no matter how old you get, you should never lose your childhood. I also fell in love with the song used for one of the trailers online. The song is called One Foot played by Walk the Moon.

What kind of movies did see in these past months?

Marvel News: Venom might have possible after credits scene and unrated version

We are less than a couple of weeks away for the upcoming Marvel movie Venom. Unlike the other Marvel movies such as the ones from Disney and Fox, Venom is going to be from Sony and it won’t have the character Spider-Man involved with the story. Revealed on Fandango, the director Ruben Fleischer answers questions about the movie and the character of Venom. In one of the questions asked, Fandango asked for a possible unrated version for the home videos of the movie.

Fandango: Do you think you would do an unrated version of it on home release?

Ruben Fleischer: I wouldn’t rule anything out. We’ll have to see where it lands, I guess, but I wouldn’t rule anything out.

Another question is asked if there is a possible post credits scene after the movie.

Fandango: Should people stay for the credits?

Ruben Fleischer: I think it would be a mistake of any superhero movie not to stay through the credits.

These are some of the questions that I found interesting. If you want to read the questions and answers, you can follow the link or tweet to the website. Venom comes out on October 5th 2018 and the actor playing ad Venom/Eddie Brock Jr. is Tom Hardy. Eminem will be involved and make a song for the movie. This movie is already rated PG-13 and it might get an unrated version in home video release. Venom is an antihero in the Spider-Man comics, but this movie won’t be having anything to do with Spider-Man.

However, It’s also reported that Star Wars movies and shows that debuts in 2019 and beyond will appear on the service and the movies like The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi will not be on it due to Star Wars belonging to At&T Turner Broadcasting and giving them the rights to broadcast the films.
