It seems that despite announcements that the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer would be premiering on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD next week, someone might have jumped the gun!
And as expected, James Spader is already delivering what I expected, and that is an exceptional adversary for The Avengers, in the form of Ultron. And we see action glimpses of Tony Stark’s Hulk Buster armor. Dang!
But that’s OK, because now having seen it has only spiked my interest even that much more. As long as it is up and running, here’s the trailer, and it is incredible. We’ll see if Disney/Marvel meant to release it
This week the headlining star in new movies coming out this Friday, October 24th, is Keanu Reeves in an action flick of vengeance. The other movie out is based on an old “game” we’ve probably all played at one time or another.
New in theaters this week:
Rated PG-13, it runs 89 min and is, of course, a Horror film. A horror film rated PG-13?
In it, “A group of friends must confront their most terrifying fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board.”
It’s directed by Stiles White whose past experience includes The Sixth Sense, Knowing and a few more big name movies.
The cast includes Olivia Cooke, Ana Coto, Daren Kagasoff, Bianca A. Santos, most of whom I don’t recognize off hand, so what fun comes from this film could more or less be based on the experience of the director.
This being the first in a line of movies vying for your Halloween fun, well, it is what it is.

For the fan of the giant monster/giant robot movie, Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim was a breath of fresh air.

Many moons ago Dave Howe promised that when he took over Syfy, he was going to first get the network be a competitive force amongst the advertisers and then start applying their momentum (and income) to good sci-fi.

Back in March a friend (Hi Shannon!) told me that someone she knew in the movie industry for Sony said that Spider-Man will be appearing in an upcoming Avengers movie. In my head I said to myself (LOL!) but to her I mentioned how studios pay big bucks to have the rights to a character. […]
