Movie season is kicking off a little early which is good after a lackluster summer. Here are the trailers, schedules and the top five movies that we can’t wait for.
Kickboxer: Vengeance – September 2nd, 2016
In April of 1989 in the middle of the action crazed 80’s and 90’s, Jean-Claude Van Damme delivered an epic performance that turned a low budget action film into a pop culture classic.
The slow motion – AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH at the end when Kurt Sloane is blinded is etched into the memories of the film’s loyal fans.
Now we get to see what happens when Van Damme trains another Kurt Sloane to defeat Tong Po. The villainous fighter Tong Po is played by Dave Bautista and is almost un-recognizable.
This movie looks awesome.
For The Love of Spock – September 9th, 2016
Few franchises have loyal fans like Star Trek and Spock is one of the most recognizable characters of the late 20th century.
For the Love of Spock is a documentary about the late great Leonard Nimoy, and his incredible impact on cinema history, American culture and his fans.
This is a movie that no Trekkie can miss!
Snowden – September 16th, 2016
The most infamous whistleblower/traitor of a generation is getting his own movie.
While Edward Snowden is holed up in Russia this September, you can freely go to your neighborhood movie theater and watch a movie about what happens when you steal 1.3 million secret documents from the NSA.
The argument of whether Snowden is a whistleblower or a traitor will be front and center again. Maybe this movie will help make up people’s mind, after all it is directed by Oliver Stone.
Mr. Church – September 16th, 2016
Eddie Murphy has taken a little time off recently, but is making a huge comeback with his new movie Mr. Church.
Mr. Church looks like a tearjerker about a man who befriends a family and the bond that is created through unlikely relationships.
Don’t expect to see the Eddie Murphy from Raw or Beverly Hills Cop, but a much more controlled performance that is already gaining Oscar talk.
Funny or not, we are just happy to see Eddie Murphy back on the big screen.
The Magnificent Seven – September 23rd, 2016
Tell me how a movie with Denzel Washington, Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke and Vincent D’Onofrio could be bad. I wouldn’t believe you if you did.
Western’s have seen a little resurgence lately and the remake of The Magnificent Seven looks to be a fun, violent, badass movie. Everything we love about the Wild West.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua, the man that brought us Training Day, Olympus Has Fallen and the cult classic Bait.
Anyway you slice it, this movie looks good, but lets hope it lives up to expectations.
