New Star Trek 3 official release date finally unveiled by Paramount. Recently, Paramount Pictures officially announced when the new Star Trek 3 movie will be hitting theaters to celebrate their 50th anniversary. It turns out they’re going to drop the 3rd installment on July 8th, 2016, so be sure to jot that date down on your movie calendars.

Their official announcement reads like this: “In the Summer of 2016, Paramount will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek series by releasing Star Trek 3. Today, Paramount Pictures has given the film a July 8, 2016 release date.” In addition to that, the movie will be directed by “Fast And Furious” director, Justin Lin, who replaced Roberto Orci.

Plot details have not yet been revealed, although the previous director, Robert Orci, stated earlier this year that his plan was to set the action in deep space, unlike the relatively Earth-centric J.J. Abrams films. There currently is no intel on whether the film will move forward with the same screenplay scripted by Orci, Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne or look for a new draft.

pirates of the caribbean image

New Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 movie to be a possible reboot,new details. According to a recent report from Comicbookmovie.com and their sources, Orlando Bloom, who starred in the first three “Pirates of The Caribbean” movies, is claiming that the new, 5th installment, might actually be of the whole damn franchise, and that he might be returning as a totally different character!

Orlando explained to the press: “I’m not entirely sure that I’ll be back just yet, but there are talks. Basically, they want to reboot the whole franchise, I think, and do something with me and the relationship with my son. I’m of course Davey Jones now, so I’m down the bottom of the ocean. It might be kind of fun to do something where I’m rumbling round the bottom of the ocean, because I won’t look anything like me.”

In addition to that, it’s also reported that five young actresses are currently auditioning to portray the love interest for Thwaites’ character. The actresses are: Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner), Gabriella Wilde (Carrie), Jenna Thiam (The Returned), Alexandra Dowling (Game of Thrones) and Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter).

New Annie 2014 movie got mostly negative reviews from top critics. Columbia Pictures (Sony) released their new comedy/musical “Annie” 2014 remake film into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews are in from the top movie critics. It turns out that most of them really didn’t like it at all. In fact, it got the dreaded 0 score from one of them. Overall, it got a 33 score out of a possible 100 over at Metacritic.com.

The film stars: Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, David Zayas, and Quvenzhané Wallis. We’ve posted blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Matt Zoller Seitz from RogerEbert.com, gave it a decent 75 grade, saying: ” Annie is light on its feet, frothy, and always insistently, at times provocatively kind, determined to melt grumpy hearts like marshmallows.”

Claudia Puig from USA Today, gave it a 50 score. She stated: “Quvenzhané Wallis is adorably plucky as the lead in Annie. She and Jamie Foxx as the newfangled Daddy Warbucks character have an appealing chemistry and their songs together are the best moments in the movie. But the rest of Annie is banal, shallow and markedly cynical.”

Ty Burr over at the Boston Globe, gave it a 50 grade, stating: “The unforced cleverness of the opening scenes gives way to lazy plotting, awkwardly staged musical numbers, and car chases. By the end, the movie resembles just another formulaic, family-friendly piece of product, one the kids will enjoy and you’ll endure as it goes in the DVD player for the 40th time.”

Mary Houlihan at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 50 score, saying: ” Musical theater versions often seem dated, so moving the story into the 21st century does make sense (as does the multicultural casting), but in the process Gluck and his all-star cast create a chaotic film that tries too hard and fails to capture the charm and heart of the musical.”

Inkoo Kang at TheWrap, gave it a 50 grade, saying: ” No amount of self-referential jokes can make up for a lack of heart and spirit. Thankfully, Annie lacks neither.”

Elizabeth Weitzman over at the New York Daily News, gave it a 40 score. She stated: “For all the talent involved, the overall effect is surprisingly flat. Foxx appears disconnected, Byrne is wasted and a painfully hammy Diaz seems to be in another movie altogether.”

the pyramid movie poster image

New The Pyramid movie got mediocre reviews from top critics so far. 20th Century FOX released their new horror/thriller flick, “The Pyramid,” into theaters today, and a couple of the critics got a review in about it, but they were both pretty less than stellar with only 50 and 20 scores out of a possible 100 over at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Denis O’Hare, Ashley Hinshaw, James Buckley, Christa-Marie Nicola, and Amir K. We’ve added blurbs from the critics, below.

Guy Lodge over at Variety, gave it a 50 score, saying: “Correctly ascertaining that auds will be less interested in the outcome than in the obstacles along the way, Levasseur plants and executes the pic’s exclamation-point scares with grinning, squelching gusto.”

Chris Michael from The Guardian, gave it a 20 grade, stating: “Levasseur understands the claustrophobia of being locked inside a stuffy pyramid with collapsing floors and sand traps. Unfortunately for him, Indiana Jones turns out to be incompatible with Alien, and the bad acting and atrocious script don’t help.”

penguins of madagascar movie poster image

New Penguins of Madagascar movie got mixed reviews from top critics. 20th Century Fox and DreamWorks Animation released their new comedy/animation flick, “Penguins of Madagascar,” into theaters this past Wednesday and all the reviews are in from the top movie critics. it turns out that the outcome was pretty mixed with an overall 53 score out of a possible 100 across 30 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: John Malkovich, Chris Miller, Peter Stormare, Tom McGrath, Ken Jeong, Benedict Cumberbatch, Annet Mahendru and Christopher Knights. We’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Michael O’Sullivan at the Washington Post, gave it a great 88 score, saying: ” The screenplay by John Aboud, Michael Colton and Brandon Sawyer has a fizzy, pop-culture pizazz, tempered by a distinctly vaudeville sensibility. It’s smart, but not brainy; dumb, but never inane.”

Walter Addiego from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 78 score. He said: ” There’s plenty here to tickle the kids, and that’s what counts.”

Christy Lemire from RogerEbert.com, gave it a 75 grade, saying: “The pacing is so zany, the jokes are so rapid-fire and the sight gags are so inspired that it’s impossible not to get caught up in the infectious energy of it all.”

Bill Zwecker at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 75 score. He said: “From the opening frame right up to the whirlwind finale, you will be treated to non-stop action, clever dialogue and quite a bit of zany energy. If I’d fault anything about this fun romp, it’s that the filmmakers tried to jam-pack too much into one movie.”

Ben Kenigsberg at The New York Times, gave it a 70 score, saying: ” The decision to focus on the series’s comic relief has resulted in the loosest and perhaps funniest film of the brand.”

Elizabeth Weitzman at the New York Daily News, gave it a 60 score, stating: ” A sassy script and good-natured voice work from Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich should keep kids and grownups entertained over the holidays.”

Claudia Puig from USA Today, gave it a 50 grade. He stated: “This is a joyless, frenetic film that is very rarely funny.” Betsy Sharkey from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 50 grade, stating: “The pun is a gun for Penguins’ writers. Not a sharpshooter rifle, but a machine gun that unloads a nonstop quip barrage, mowing down the real promise of this 3-D animation action comedy.”

Tom Russo over at the Boston Globe, gave it a 50 grade, stating: ” It’s a movie content to stay within the show’s comfort zone, changing things up mainly with flashier, 3-D visuals, a couple of which are dazzlers, and a theme that doesn’t connect in any notable way.”

New Hunger Games 3,Mockingjay Part 1 Movie Got Mostly Positive Reviews From Top Critics

mjmpsmall

New Hunger Games 3,Mockingjay Part 1 movie got mostly positive reviews from top critics. Lionsgate released their new action/drama flick, “Hunger Games 3: Mockingjay Part 1,” into theaters today, and all the top movie critics have submitted their reviews. It turns out that most of them did like it with an overall 63 score out of a possible 100 across 44 reviews over at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Natalie Dormer, Stef Dawson, Evan Ross, Lily Rabe, Patina Miller, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Jena Malone. We posted blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Claudia Puig at USA Today , gave it a nice 88 grade, stating: ” It’s easily the most political of the three films. It also is the most absorbing and best in the series.”

Alonso Duraide from TheWrap, gave it an 83 score, saying: “Suffice it to say that while Mockingjay, Part 1 might not be as consistently thrilling as “Catching Fire” — the second movie always has the luxury of being all PB&J and no crust — it’s the movie equivalent of a page-turner, consistently suspenseful and filled with surprises and illuminating character moments.”

Peter Travers at Rolling Stone, gave it a 75 score. He said: “Delivers the dazzle without sacrificing the smarts. The suspense is killer. Ditto the thrill of the hunt. The film uses the extra time to, of all things, develop characters and give this dystopian fable a human scale.”

Michael Phillips from the Chicago Tribune, gave it a 75 as well, stating: ” Not everything in “Mockingjay” is dynamic or remarkable. Director Lawrence, working from Peter Craig and Danny Strong’s screenplay, occasionally mistakes somnambulance for solemnity.”

Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 75 score. He stated: “Ultimately, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 serves as solid if unspectacular first lap around the track of a two-lap race.”

Joe Morgenstern at the Wall Street Journal, gave it a 70 score,stating: “As smart as this film is about image-making in the age of all-pervasive media, the theme threatens to wear thin until Katniss comes to a new and moving awareness of her power, not just as a figurehead fashioned and elaborately feathered by political consultants but as a source of authentic inspiration to her shattered nation.”

New John Wick Movie Got Mostly Positive Reviews From Top Critics

johnwickmpsmall

New John Wick movie got mostly positive reviews from top critics. Lionsgate released their new action/thriller flick, “John Wick,” into theaters yesterday, October 23rd, and the top movie critics have submitted all their reviews. It turns out that most of them liked it with an overall 69 score out of a possible 100 across 26 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Adrianne Palicki, Dean Winters, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, John Leguizmo, and Willem Dafoe. We’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Chris Nashawaty at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a nice 91 score, stating: “John Wick, is not only a return to badass form for the actor, it’s also one of the most excitingly visceral action flicks I’ve seen in ages.”

Robert Abele from the Los Angeles Times, gave it another very good 90 grade, saying: ” It’s a B movie made with A-student love for the relentless thrill of bodies in brutal motion.”

Jeannette Catsoulis from The New York Times, gave it a 90 score. He said: “Harboring few ambitions beyond knock-your-socks-off action sequences, this crafty revenge thriller delivers with so much style — and even some wit — that the lack of substance takes longer than it should to become problematic.”

Bruce Ingram at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 88 score, saying: “A lean, spare, stylish and grimly, methodically ultra-violent extravaganza that provides star Keanu Reeves with a much-needed infusion of cool. And hard-core action fans with combat-centric cinematic expertise on a par with 20ll’s “The Raid.”

Justin Lowe from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it an 80 grade, stating: “Distilling a couple of decades of stunt work and second-unit directing experience into 96 minutes of runtime, Stahelski and Leitch expertly deliver one action highlight after another in a near-nonstop thrill ride.”

Michael Ordona from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 75 score, saying: “Reeves’ skills are on glorious display in John Wick, an expertly made revenge drama in which he goes all headshot on lots and lots of bad guys, and it’s awesome.”

New Fury Movie Got Mostly Positive Reviews From Top Critics

New Fury movie got mostly positive reviews from top critics. Columbia Pictures (Sony) released their new action/drama flick, “Fury,” into theaters yesterday, October 16, and the top movie critics have submitted their reviews. It turns out that it sat well with most of them, getting an overall 64 score out of a possible 100 across 38 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal and Jason Isaacs. We’ve posted blurbs from a few of the critics, below.

Mick LaSalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a perfect 100 score, stating: “At its best, Fury examines the psychological experience of warfare.”

Kenneth Turan over at the Los Angeles Times, gave it an 80 grade, saying: ” What makes this film distinctive is the adroit way it both subverts and enhances old-school expectations, grafting a completely modern sensibility onto thoroughly traditional material.”

Joe Neumaier from the New York Daily News, gave it an 80 score. He stated: “Fury excels in showing the ground-level, guttural intensity and claustrophobia of battle.”

Peter Travers from Rolling Stone, gave it a 75 grade, stating: “Pitt is tremendous in the role, a conscience detectable even in Wardaddy’s blinkered gaze. But it’s Lerman who anchors the film with a shattering, unforgettable portrayal of corrupted innocence. Fury means to grab us hard from the first scene and never let go. Mission accomplished.”

Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 75 score. He said: “Pitt is at the top of his game, playing a man who has forgotten whatever he used to be and has wholly embraced his role in this war.”

Claudia Puig from USA Today, gave it a 75 score. She said: “Fury does capture the brutality of war and the misery of life spent largely confined in an armored tank during the war’s final weeks, in April, 1945.”

John Anderson at the Wall Street Journal, gave it a 70, stating: ” World War II is often called the “last good war,” which has also meant that it was the last global conflict out of which the studios could make an unabashedly heroic movie. Fury is not that movie. And because it is not, it provides a few psychic disturbances beyond its shocking gore, burning soldiers blowing their brains out, children hanged from trees by the SS and imminent rape.”

gone girl movie poster image

New Gone Girl movie got mostly positive reviews from the top critics. 20th Century FOX released their new drama/thriller flick, “Gone Girl” into theaters today, and all the top critics have submitted their reviews.

The movie stars: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, Carrie Coon,and David Clennon. We’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Claudia Puig at USA Today, gave it a great 100 score, stating:” Grimly dark humor and spot-on production design buttress the captivating story and heighten the unnerving atmosphere…Gone Girl will leave you breathless and haunted.”

Joe Nuemaier from the New York Daily News, gave it another awesome 100 grade, saying: “Fincher is a fearless filmmaker who understands his audience’s intelligence (not to mention their cinematic blood lust). By the end of Gone Girl, we feel like we’ve lived through about four movies, not just one. Good luck letting go of any of them.”

Kenneth Turan from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a perfect 100 as well. He said: “Superbly cast from the two at the top to the smallest speaking parts, impeccably directed by Fincher and crafted by his regular team to within an inch of its life, Gone Girl shows the remarkable things that can happen when filmmaker and material are this well matched.”

Chris Nashawaty at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 100 score too. He stated: “Anyone who loved Gone Girl the book will walk out of Gone Girl the movie with a sick grin on their face. You can stop being nervous.”

Justin Chang from Variety, gave it a perfect 100, stating: “Surgically precise, grimly funny and entirely mesmerizing over the course of its swift 149-minute running time, this taut yet expansive psychological thriller represents an exceptional pairing of filmmaker and material.”

James Rocchi from TheWrap, gave it a 90 grade, stating:” Not only brutal but also brutally funny, Gone Girl mixes top-notch suspenseful storytelling with the kind of razor-edged wit that slashes so quick and clean you’re still watching the blade go past before you notice you’re bleeding.”

Matt Zoller Seitz at RogerEbert.com, gave it an 88 grade, saying: “Gone Girl is art and entertainment, a thriller and an issue, and an eerily assured audience picture.”

Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it another 88 grade. He said: “The editing, with so many twists and turns and so many supporting characters needing their due, is without hiccups. And thankfully, there’s plenty of dark humor.”

Michael Phillips at the Chicago Tribune, gave it an 88 score, stating: “David Fincher’s film version of the Gillian Flynn bestseller Gone Girl is a stealthy, snake-like achievement. It’s everything the book was and more — more, certainly, in its sinister, brackish atmosphere dominated by mustard-yellow fluorescence, designed to make you squint, recoil and then lean in a little closer.”

New Equalizer Movie Got Mixed Reviews From Top Movie Critics

the equalizer movie poster image

New Equalizer movie got mixed reviews from top movie critics. Columbia Pictures (Sony) released their new action film, “The Equalizer” into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews are in from the top critics. It turns out that around half of them liked it with an overall 57 score out of a possible 100 across 41 reviews at Metacritic.com. site.

The movie stars: Denzel Washington, Marton Csokas, Chloë Grace Moretz, David Harbour, Bill Pullman, and Melissa Leo. We’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a great 88 score, stating: “The Equalizer features some gruesomely creative violence, but it’s equally memorable for the small, gritty moments set in that diner, or on the rough-and-tumble streets of Boston. And most of all, it’s got Denzel going for it.”

Todd McCarthy at the Hollywood Reporter, gave it another nice 80 score, saying: ” Ramping up his style to a more dynamic and elegant level than he’s achieved previously, Fuqua socks over the suspense and action but also takes the time for some quiet, even spare moments to emphasize the hero’s calm and apartness.”

Lou Lumenick from the New York Post, gave it a 75 score. He stated: “There’s nothing hugely original about the script by Richard Wenk (who cowrote “Expendables 2” with Sylvester Stallone), but Washington is a master at putting his own inimitable and stylish spin on even the most familiar situations.”

Susan Wloszczyna at RogerEbert.com, gave it a 75 score as well, stating: “While some might decry the ludicrous showdown that unfolds in the darkened aisles of McCall’s mega-store workplace, I got a kick out of watching Washington turn everyday hardware supplies into lethal weaponry.”
