I will comment on this tomorrow, let’s all enjoy this right now!!
If you know me well and you know how much I love movies, you will also know that I love the James Bond series. I get excited for new trailers and new movies when they come out. Today we were treated to a new trailer for the James Bond movie Spectre. Upon first viewing this has everything we are expecting from James Bond and more! They have really turned this franchise around with Daniel Craig and the stories that we are shown on the big screen. I love the action and the sense of being able to step into a world of secret spy stuff. This is why I go to a movie like James Bond, it’s a world I can experience outside my own life. Watch the trailer below and enjoy what is to come this winter.
A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.
Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
Well, the people have won again. Not really. WB was forced to release this trailer even though they didn’t want to and all due to fans that can’t keep it to themselves. I know why the fans want to release stuff like this and they feel like they are helping others that were not able to attend. The cool thing about attending events like Comic Con and special panels that you know will show you special footage, is the just that, you get to see special footage. I want to say that again YOU GET SPECIAL FOOTAGE. Sure, I would like to see it and trust me in years past when I haven’t attend I wanted to see it and couldn’t and just about went crazy. How I was jealous and wish I was able to see some of the panels. Yes, I am a geek. Well, below is the trailer that was shown at the SDCC panel for WB and they stated that this is not a finished product and in fact as of today the movie is still being shot. So they really got a special screening of a movie that has yet to be completed. The trailer below looks great and for not having a finished product they did a good job making a trailer that will get fans excited. I like that excitement of wonder and that is what I would have had if WB would not of released the trailer and they felt forced because a crappy version was out there and sure it would not of done justice to a movie that looks like it will be great. Tell me what you think, I loved it and I am very excited to see a lot of these characters do their thing.
I know I only review trailers and movies etc…But, this is worth talking about. Tom Cruise is known for the many wacky and crazy stunts in his movies. I don’t know of many actors that will risk their body and life for that matter, for a good shot. You always hear him talk about entertaining the audience and giving people what they want, but you can do that and live to see another day and make more movies. I have heard rumors and I am sure it is confirmed somewhere, but Tom fired his insurance company when they were doing Ghost Protocol because they would not insure him if he did the high rise stunt. Don’t tell him what he can’t do, cause you are going to get fired! Now I wonder how he convince the power that be about doing this stunt and boy is it a great stunt. Who thinks of this? Never mind, We know who and he keeps making great action movies. Look below and I also included the latest Rogue Nation trailer. I can’t wait for this one as well.
And the Trailer:
One of the great things we get to do aside from giving you a review on movies and TV Shows, is to meet with stars of movies that we love to watch. So the perks of being able to meet and chat with the stars makes this job the best. I love getting their views and perspective on a movie they were in or maybe the character they are playing. That is what we are about honest views and an honest reaction from the stars. Today we have a transcript of the interview that I had with Brandon Routh, most of you will know him as Superman from the 2006 Bryan Singer version. Brandon is a great guy and even after having what looked like a long day at the Salt Lake Comic Con, he still took the time to chat. Right now he is working on the hit TV Show The Arrow and plays Ray Palmer who later becomes The Atom. We were able to get some of his thoughts on that role along with what his favorite character has been to date. Read below for the interview.
MR2GO: Salt Lake City Comic Con, is this the first time coming to Salt Lake?
Brandon Routh: First time in Salt Lake, but I have also been to Park City and Goblin Valley State Park.
MR2GO: How are you liking it so far?
Brandon Routh: Its great, you know, you judge a lot by the people you meet in this city and everyone has been really kind and awesome.
MR2GO: I wanted to ask you a couple of questions about your current work now and what you have done. First off what has been the most memorable or favorite character you have done?
Brandon Routh: Superman, and the character of Superman has got to be the pinnacle of everything so far, it’s going to be hard for anything to replace that one.
MR2GO: I agree, we are a big fan of that movie and the work you did there to represent the character. Moving on to another of your project, Arrow. There is talk of a spin off based on the character that you play there. What are your thoughts about doing an Atom show where we see Ray Palmer take on a more central role?
Brandon Routh: I would love to play Ray Palmer for as long as possible, at this point it has been a lot of fun and whatever capacity he is in, I am game to keep playing him.
MR2GO: We are excited to keep watching what happens there. What else are you working on aside from Arrow that you can tell us about?
Brandon Routh: I have a movie called 400 days, it’s a space sci-fi action thriller that is supposed to come out this year, Caity Lotz is in it who is also Black Canary on Arrow, Tom Cavanaugh who is in flash currently and Dane Cook.
I have to say with everything he was doing during the Salt Lake Comic Con, being able to interview him and the time he took has really shown me why so many people like Brandon Routh. He really cares about the fans and taking the time with them however little or long it is. I saw him doing autographs and taking pictures with fans and he made sure every fan there felt appreciated. Brandon really wanted to take time with everyone there. I hope we get a chance to run into him in the future and look forward to his projects going forward. You can follow Brandon Routh on twitter and facebook and see all the great things he is working on.
Update: Since the interview with Brandon back in Janurary 2015 we have heard and seen great new things for him. Now that Legends of Tomorrow is official we will see a lot more of him.
