From beginning to end there was non-stop action and incredible set pieces that kept me engaged fully. The almost two and a half hour movie flew by and left me wanting more. Writer/director Joss Whedon gives every nerd in the world the movie we all want and deserve and has raised the bar for all superhero movies to come. Read More…
Jason Statham returns to his old action movie prime with the new trailer for Killer Elite. With a supporting cast of Clive Owen and Rebert De Niro, this looks like it could be a solid film. Check out the trailer below. The film is set to premiere on September 23rd.
Sorry Modern Warfare 3 fanboys, this game just keeps looking more awesome with every new trailer they put out. 80 nominations and 47 wins at E3 is also incredibly impressive. Check the new trailer below which features a new multiplayer mission that appears to be a checkpoint based match as the squad in the video pushes further and further into the metro station, but we will just have to wait and find out as more information surfaces.
