Amazing New Costume For The Amazing Spiderman 2

the amazing spiderman 2, new costumeThe sequel to the Spiderman reboot, The Amazing Spiderman 2 will not be in theatre until next year. However, the director, Marc Webb has successfully created a buzz among the fans by releasing a costume teaser of how would upcoming Spiderman looks like.

The latest Spiderman costume is relatively different from the earlier one, be it the colour or the texture. One of the most noticeable difference is actually on the eye. The new costume carries a bigger and white eye (as oppose to the smaller and black eye in the earlier version).

Many fans are giving rave and positive comment on the new costume and cited that it is closer to the costume in the original comic series. What do you think? Do you like the new costume better or the old man? (I have included the poster of existing costume in The Amazing Spiderman as well for easier comparison)

By the way, The Amazing Spiderman 2 will be released in US on 2rd May 2014. I am looking forward to it especially seeing how Jamie Foxx reprise the role of Electro (the villain).

I enjoyed the Monsters Inc. a lot and hope the this long overdue prequel managed to bring back the fond memory of the time times! Monsters University will be released in 3D on 21st June 2013. 

Brief synopsis of Monsters University (source

As for the previous week's top movie, A Good Day To Die Hard dropped to the fifth place with less than convincing word of mouth/critics.

The Oscars 2013 Winners And How I Did With My Prediction

oscars, 85th academy awards 2013The Oscars 2013 Winners have just been announced a couple of hours ago. Are you surprise with the results? Being a Chinese myself (even though I am not from Taiwan), the most touching moment is when the Best Director Winner, Lee Ang, is being announced. He thanks practically everyone involved in the film, especially those from Taiwan. And oh, he thanks "Movie God" too! ;-) 

Life Of Pi is his masterpiece with great visual awesomeness and high spiritual value.

Now, let's see how I do with my predictions done about one month ago....(my predictions are highlighted in yellow).

Weekly Box Office Movies in US (Ending 2013/02/17)

a good day to die hard
Here are the TOP 5 Movies from US for the week ending 17th February 2013 (Sun).

SPECIAL NOTE : As expected A Good Day To Die Hard (the fifth installments of the Die Hard franchise) shoot up to the top spot but not without a tight fight with Identify Thief. Even though A Good Day To Die Hard tops the chart but the sales is not much higher than the early estimate. The other 2 smaller releases, Safe Haven and Escape From The Planet Earth (3D) doing relatively well at third and forth places. 

Beautiful Creature flopped at 6th place with merely $7.58 millions. Hope that the international market is able to boost the sales for the movie.

Why Is Die Hard So Hard To Die? [Infographic]

a good day to die hard, bruce willisBruce Willis' 5th installment of Die Hard franchise, A Good Day To Die Hard [IMAX] was released internationally last week and it tops the weekend Box Office Chart in US (expectedly). The question is: Why is Die Hard or specifically Bruce Willis can continue to entertain the audience (especially US audience) throughout the 25 years span (the first Die Hard movie was released in 1988). In short, why is Die Hard so hard to die? 

All your doubts could be answered by a beautiful Infographic (Five Reasons Why Americans Love Die Hard) designed by Ruby Media Corporation. Even though the Infographic is designed more for US audience but most of the points are applicable to non-US audience too (I believed)!

Are you a Die Hard fan? Have you watch him Yippee Ki-yay again? In any case, before heading to the Infographic, you may want to recap the past 4 installments of Die Hard by clicking on the image(s) below:

Yippee Ki-yay !

New Posters - Iron Man 3 And Jurassic Park 3D

iron man 3, movie poster
Hot from oven!

Today, I am going to share 2 new movie posters from the upcoming 3D movies, one sequel and one re-mastered (for 3D release). First, the Jurassic Park 3D (scheduled to be released on 5th April 2013 in US) and the other is the long awaited Iron Man sequel, Iron Man 3 (scheduled to be released on 3rd May 2013 in US).

To mark the 10th years anniversary of its release, the hugely popular Jurassic Park will be re-released into IMAX 3D format. It has been 10 years and it is about time to re-experience the world envisioned by the great director, Steven Spielberg.

As for Iron Man 3, the focus of the new character poster is on Don Cheadle as James Rhodes. I am pretty sure that this is only the first of many character posters to be released soon. For more movie details, check out my earlier coverage here

Enjoy the posters...

Oblivion - The Awesome New Poster and Trailer

Tom Cruise fans can start to screaaaam now! 

His upcoming original sci-fi movie, Oblivion has just up the ante by releasing a brand new awesome movie poster and trailer. You can never get enough of Tom Cruise from that kind of cool look!

From Director, Joseph Kosinski whom brought us the reboot of TRON- Legacy (2010), this second movie of his looks set to be one of the biggest blockbuster of the year. Short synopsis of Oblivion (source: GeekTryant):

On a spectacular future Earth that has evolved beyond recognition, one man’s confrontation with the past will lead him on a journey of redemption and discovery as he battles to save mankind.

Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.

Living in and patrolling the breathtaking skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a beautiful stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.

Oblivion will be released on 19th Apr 2013 (US) in IMAX!

Latest Promo Photo of Man Of Steel

man of steel movie
Man Of Steel, the upcoming reboot of the Superman franchise will hit the theaters in June 2013. There are still 4 more months or so to go but has garnered many positive response through the trailers and cool movie posters. Of course, expectation is also higher since it was produced by Christopher Nolan, whom last brought us the mesmerising The Dark Knight Rises.

Recently, there was a leaked promotional shot being shared online and thus would like to share it with my readers here too. For more movie details like trailers and movie posters, check out my earlier coverage of Man Of Steel here.

Now, enjoy the full view of superman in cool looking style!

identify thief
Here are the TOP 5 Movies from US for the week ending 10th February 2013 (Sun).

SPECIAL NOTE : One of this week's new release, Identity Thief (Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, from the director of Horrible Bosses) surprises the market by topping the chart with impressive $34.6 mil. 

The other new release, Side Effects (Jude Law, Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum) was debuted disappointingly at 3rd place with poor $9.3 millions (bearing in mind the numbers of A list casts in the movie). This could be one of the worst debut by Sylvester.

Oz The Great And Powerful - Motion Poster

oz the great and powerful, wicked witch
Sam Raimi's Oz The Great And Powerful will hit the cinema only on 8th Mar 2013 in US. Meanwhile, there are many promotional trailers, teasers, movie and character posters being released. 

Disney has just released a fun animated motion poster, featuring the wicked witch. Prior to this, if you like to find out more details about Oz The Great And Power, check out my earlier coverage here

Short synopsis of Oz The Great And Powerful (source: GeekTyrant):

"When Oscar Diggs (Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot--fame and fortune are his for the taking--that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Kunis), Evanora (Weisz) and Glinda (Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity--and even a bit of wizardry--Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well."

12 Upcoming 3D Movies (Till June 2013)

January has just past and we are left with 11 months to go to catch the movies. In any case, beginning of the year is usually the lull period and thus not many big budget blockbusters will be released during this period.

So far, there are only two 3D movies released in January i.e. Texas Chainsaw (3D) and Hansel and Gretel - Witch Hunters.  

While waiting for the bigger blockbusters to be released during the summer period, I thought it is a good idea to share the upcoming 3D Movies from February till June 2013 so that you can make a better decision on which movies to watch in 3D or even IMAX 3D.
