A Comic Movie from England

It seems that every Icon Comics series might be getting a Movie after the success of the Kick-Ass films. This time it’s Mark Millar’s The Secret Service. The film follows secret agents of young English adults blah blah blah, explosion, blah blah Colin Firth, Michael Cane, blah blah Samuel Jackson with a lisp. The film drops on October 24th.

At least it looks pretty

An internationla trailer fro the upcoming Jupiter Ascending film hit the week this week. It features action and a little plot. It still doesn’t stop the movie from looking goofy as all hell. I’m hoping to be surprised. The film comes out on July 18.

Finally a title was released for the antispated Man of Steel Sequel. The film, now called Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice looks more like the title of a legal battle, but this is a first step in the right direction. The film is currently in production with May 16th 2016 as the proposed release date.

So. Many. Comic. Films.

Hey it’s another trailer for a comic book film. This time the Big Hero 6. The film is the first Marvel film produced by Pixar, the money making machine also owned by Disney. It looks kind of fun.
