47 Ronin - Yet Another Awesome Trailer (Dec 2013)

47 Ronin
After watching this latest trailer, I really really looking forward to watch 47 Ronin, probably in 3D. Yes, this is a remake but who cares? As long as there is good story line and mouth watering special effect..

Directed by Carl Rinsch, starring Keanu Reeve , Hiroyuki Sanada and Kô Shibasaki. I hope this movie can re-establish Keanu's filming career. Synopsis of 47 Ronin (source:

The troupe of banished samurai long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Asano, who is in theaters now as Hogun in Thor) who was responsible for the death of their master. Kai is the uneasy compatriot in their company and his standing will be questioned even more as he falls in love with Mika (Shibasaki), daughter of the fallen master. The film presents a quest where the ronin (the term for samurai with no master) face trials that test their mettle and their loyalty to one another.

The movie will be in theatres on the Christmas Day, in 3D. Now, enjoy the kick ass trailer below:

The Hunger Games - Catching Fire : Latest Trailer (Nov 2013)

The Hunger Games Catching fire
To all The Hunger Games novel or movie fans, this is possibly the last trailer from the upcoming sequel, The Hunger Games - Catching Fire. I also think that this is the most impressive trailer among all. 

All the main casts like Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth are reprising in the sequel but with different directorship from Francis Lawrence, I hope this will be a new level of games (pun intended). 

Synopsis of The Hunger Games - Catching Fire :

Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.

The movie will be released in big screens on 22nd Nov 2013.

Now, enjoy the trailer below.

Trailer from Mr Peabody And Sherman (Mar 2014)

Mr Peabody and Sherman
The title of this upcoming 3D animation, Mr Peabody And Sherman might not ring a bell for the young kids nowadays, but if you are slightly older (ok, maybe much older), you will know that these characters are spin off from the Rocky and Bullwinkle, popular cartoon series in the 60s.

In any case, Dreamworks Animation has just released the very first trailer of this 2014 reboot and it looks kind of fun. Short synopsis of the movie:

Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine—the Wabac—to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes the Wabac out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidentally rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. 

Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time-travelling trio will make their mark on history.

Tarzan - Full Trailer Of The Upcoming CG Animation Reboot (2014)

tarzan 3d
Tarzan has been adapted into many TV series (cartoon or mini-series) or movies (animation or featured films) and I believed it will continue to spin into reboot, remake, prequel or sequel in the future. 

In fact, soon, there will be another adaptation in 3D animation format and it simply called TARZAN. Recently, Constantin Film Production has released the full-length trailer of this CG animation. To be frank, the trailer doesn't seems to wow me (maybe kids will like it more).

Short synopsis of Tarzan:

Tarzan and Jane Porter face a mercenary army dispatched by the evil CEO of Greystoke Energies, a man who took over the company from Tarzan's parents, after they died in a plane crash.

It is still not clear when will Tarzan be released in the big screens. Meanwhile, enjoy the trailer below.

47 Ronin - The Latest Japanese Posters and Trailer (Dec 2013)

Here come another set of new posters and trailer from upcoming fantasy action thriller from Keanu Reeves, 47 Ronin. This time round, it is from Japan, where the movie is based upon. 

I have good feeling about this movie. No, it's not because Keanue Reeves is in it. It is because I quite like the story of Ninja blending with mythical creatures (like there is a scene in the trailer whereby Rinko Kikuchi [Mizuki] morph into a fierce dragon).

Now, with the two new stunning movie posters and a spectacular trailer from Japan, I think I will pay the premium to watch it in 3D coming December.

47 Ronin will be released internationally on the Christmas Day. Following is the short synopsis of the movie (source;

The troupe of banished samurai long to restore their honor and find vengeance against the treacherous Lord Kira (played by Asano, who is in theaters now as Hogun in Thor) who was responsible for the death of their master. Kai is the uneasy compatriot in their company and his standing will be questioned even more as he falls in love with Mika (Shibasaki), daughter of the fallen master.

Disney's Frozen - The Latest Trailer (Nov 2013)

frozen animation
Disney's Frozen is starting to get into the driver seat in their marketing drive. The latest trailer that I am about to share seems to contain all the ingredients of a successful animation i.e. the magical theme story line  (adventure of a sister finding her sister who has icy power), the funny sidekick (Olaf the snowman) and the action-packed sequence with mythical creature (in the form of blizzard in this case).  

As per my earlier post, I don't really like the poster and teaser trailer when it first released but now I have changed my view (for the better). 

Frozen will be released on 27th Nov 2013 in 3D and following is the synopsis of Frozen:

When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna ( Bell), a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff (Groff) and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna's sister Elsa (Idina Menzel), the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, an amazing and comedic snowman named Olaf, Everest-like conditions and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.

Weekly Box Office Movies in US (Ending 2013/10/20)

Here are the TOP 5 Movies from US for the week ending 20th Oct 2013 (Sun).

Wow! This week's box office result might be something that even the film distributor for Gravity didn't expect. Gravity is having the strongest holding power in its third week, by only dropping 28% from previous week. That explains why it tops the chart for the third time with $31 millions. It look set to become one of the most successful non-holiday film. 

Captain Phillips (Tom Hanks) did pretty well on its second week as well at second spot. Same thing cannot be said for the other 3 new releases though. The horror remake, Carrie  (Chloë Grace Moretz) managed to stay at third spot only with under-performing figure of $17 millions. The Escape Plan (action thriller from Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger) did poorer with mere $9.8 millions. The worst release is The Fifth Estate (Benedict Cumberbatch) making miserable $1.7 millions on its first week (not in the top five movies). 

Now, enjoy the chart...

Mr Peabody & Sherman - 6 Photos From The Upcoming Dreamworks Animation (Mar 2014)

mr peabody and sherman
The upcoming Dreamworks Animation, Mr. Peabody & Sherman is based on Jay Ward's classic cartoon. Directed by Rob Minkoff (whom brought us Stuart Little films [1999 and 2002] and The Forbidden Kingdom [2008]). The story centers on Mr. Peabody, who is the world's smartest dog, and his pet boy, Sherman.

I haven't seen any of the cartoon (or maybe I have but have forgotten). In any case, Dreamworks has just released 6 official photos from the movie and it looks like a mix of time travel and mummy adventure. Following is the official synopsis from :

Using his most ingenious invention, the WABAC machine, Mr. Peabody and his adopted boy Sherman hurtle back in time to experience world-changing events first-hand and interact with some of the greatest characters of all time. They find themselves in a race to repair history and save the future.

Oh! So Stan Lee Actually Don't Like 3D Movies!?

Stan Lee
If you are a Marvel Comics fan, I am sure you know who is Stan Lee. If you are not, basically, he is a comic book writer, editor, publisher, media producer, television host, actor, voice actor and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics. I believed you got the point on how powerful he is in the comic/movie industry.

Recently, he shared a video of him ranting about 3D Movies and I find it quite hilarious and thus thought to share it out here just for a laugh. I personally view that it is just for publicity sake and he don't really hate 3D movies. 

By the way, Stan Lee is already 90 years old and his rant/voice is still so energetic and powerful!

the hobbit the desolation of smaug
The second installment of the prequel, The Hobbit - The Desolation Of Smaug is a MUST WATCH December movie for many. As per the tradition, the movie will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D and I am very looking forward to it to see how Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and gang defying all odds and fulfil their destiny (Ok, I admit! I did not read any of the books).

Big Ass Spider - A 3D Movie That You Might Not Know Exists (Oct 2013)

Kick Ass Spider Poster
Granted, this particular movie title would not ring a bell to you and might not ring any bell even in the future. It is actually one of the SXSW 2013 films and will only in limited screening this month in USA. The movie will be released in DVD in Jan 2014. 

Since they are limited upcoming 3D movies to blog about, Big Ass Spider is one of the rare sci-fi that fit the lull period of October month. Actually, after watching the trailer, it is not as bad as the movie title. Of course, don't expect a fully developed characters and plot from the movie! ;-)

Short synopsis of Big Ass Spider:

A giant alien spider escapes from a military lab and rampage the city of Los Angeles. When a massive military strike fails, it is up to a team of scientists and one clever exterminator to kill the creature before the city is destroyed.

I am not sure whether the movie will be released in other countries but it could likely to be one of the straight-to-DVD kind of movie.

Khumba - The Lesser Known 3D Animation That Kids Will Love

khumba 3D Animation
I bet most of you have not heard of the upcoming 3D animation movie about a half-striped zebra called, Khumba. Have you?

It as actually one of the selected film in TIFF 2013 (Toronto International Film Festival). Directed by lesser known Anthony Silverston and voiced by Jake T. Austin, AnnaSophia Robb, Steve Buscemi and Liam Neeson (yes, no typo here).

I believed the film will be in limited release but basing on the only trailer released so far, it actually seems like quite fun and will appeal to kids (like in the case of Ice Age films). Before watching the trailer and movie stills, check out the synopsis below (source : :

A half-striped zebra is born into an insular, isolated herd obsessed with stripes. Rumors that the strange foal is cursed spread and, before long, he is blamed for the drought that sets into the Great Karoo. When even his father, the leader of the herd, blames him for the lack of rain and the subsequent death of his mother, the outcast zebra leaves the confines of his home knowing that he cannot survive in the herd without all his stripes. 

Khumba ventures beyond the fence - vulnerable to the ferocious Leopard, Phango, who controls the waterholes and terrorizes the animals in the Great Karoo. When a mystical mantis appears to the foal, drawing a map to what could be...

[News] Sneak Peek Of The Avatar Land at Disneyland

Avatar Land At Disney's Animals Kingdom
Still remember the Pandora Planet from the monster hit 3D film, Avatar? Soon (ok, not that soon, in a couple of years' time), you can step into the Pandora world and immerse yourself in this beautiful land full of mythical yet beautiful creatures. Just wonder do we need to turn blue to get inside? ;-)

This upcoming Avatar Land will bring the Pandora to life at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Both Avatar's creator James Cameron and Walt Disney's Imagineer Joe Rohde are involved in this monstrous project and it set to wow the audience/fans again and again.

Following is the released statement from DisneyParks along with their promotional sneak peek and concept art:

"From the moment AVATAR was released, people were captivated by the mythical world of Pandora. When we announced that we’d be working with James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment to bring this world to life in our parks, we felt certain that this partnership and combination of talent and imagination would produce an experience unlike any other ever created. 

Our combined team has taken huge steps forward in “imagineering” Pandora as a real place for our guests to see, hear and touch. At the first-ever D23 Expo in Japan, we shared an early glimpse of the plans for AVATAR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park and I wanted to share some of these breathtaking images and a short preview of what’s to come with all of you. 

As these concept renderings show in epic scale, in the world of AVATAR guests will encounter awe-inspiring floating mountains and wander through a nighttime jungle of bioluminescent plants that are alive with light and sound. Guests will also discover what it feels like to soar into the sky riding a Banshee."

Weekly Box Office Movies in US (Ending 2013/10/13)

Here are the TOP 5 Movies from US for the week ending 13th Oct 2013 (Sun).

As expected, Gravity retains the top spot on its second week with $44.3 millions. The accumulated sales in US alone already crossed the $100 millions mark and it look set to have a steady run. I've watched the movie in IMAX 3D yesterday and immersed myself in the space with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. It is very real (in terms of sensing the outer space) and very inspiring. personally I am giving it a 4.5 stars (out of 5 stars).  

As for the other new release, Captain Phillips (Tom Hanks), it is doing quite with at second place with $26 millions. It is based on a true event and once again Tom Hanks is giving another powerful rendition as a "cast away" figure.

The third new release of the week, Machete Kills (a sequel) doing pathetically at fourth place with only $3.8 millions.

The Secret Life Of Walter MItty - The Powerful New Trailer (Dec 2013)

the secret life of walter mitty
Yet another seemingly great and powerful movie on Christmas Day. The movie posters and trailer released so far for The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty is anything but ordinary. Directed and starred by Ben Stiller, it looks very inspirational and imaginative. Also, I think many people can relate to the theme, which is looking at how we live our life. 
"Life is about courage and going into the UNKNOWN!"
Recently, 20th Century Fox released the full-length trailer of The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty and it caught my eyes immediately with the new footage. At this moment, I think the movie might not be in 3D or IMAX format but I just love the trailer (and the soundtrack) and thus can't bring myself not to share it.

Before watching the trailer, check out the short synopsis of the movie below:

James Thurber's classic story of a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.

Blogging Is Here To Stay!

To me, blogging is a great channel to share what is inside my mind, especially what I am passionate about and in as creative way as I possibly can.
As you can see, I am very passionate about  movies (especially in 3D and IMAX format), hence, this movie blog of mine was born about 2 years ago.
As I shared before, besides movies, I also passionate about Internet Marketing and thus created another blog on that niche ( IM Foundation ). Being an hardcore Apple fan, recently I have created yet another blog about iOS apps. It is still at its infancy stage and many improvement are coming its way. Feel free to check it out at your free time.
The reason why I share this post is to encourage as many of you folks to try blogging (if you have not already done so). Just to give you a glimpse, there are already 156 millions public blogs since two years ago (2011). So what are you waiting for?

Weekly Box Office Movies in US (Ending 2013/10/06)

Here are the TOP 5 Movies from US for the week ending 6th Oct 2013 (Sun).

As expected, the space calamity theme sci-fi, Gravity took the centre stage last week and claimed the top spot with a whopping $55.5 millions (a personal best for both main stars of the movie, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney). This is the kind of movie that you need to watch it at least in 3D (IMAX 3D is the best) to really immersed yourself into a whole new level of movie experience. Due to my other commitment, I will catch only next week (in IMAX 3D) and I will share my review here soon. 

As for the other new release, Runner Runner (Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck), it is considered a flop bearing in mind of its casts as it managed to claimed the third place with a mere $7.6 millions.

Synopsis of the movie:

In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth.

Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.

Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.

Are you a fan of The Chronicles Of Narnia novel or movie adaptation trilogy? If yes, good news for you as the fourth installment is a confirmed project now. If no, well, I guess no harm learning more on what's coming up in the movie scene.

Gordon went on to say that :

“Like many readers, both young and old, I am a huge fan of C.S. Lewis’s beautiful and allegorical world of Narnia. These fantasy stories inspire real-world passion among millions of devoted fans around the world. As we prepare to bring the next book to life, we are humbled and excited to contribute to the outstanding legacy of Narnia.”

By the way, following is the brief extract from The Silver Chair:

A crew of seasoned criminals led by the notorious Cho Nam (Hu Jun), armed with high-powered weapons, pulls off another smooth and violent armoured car heist in broad daylight in a crowded street. Whoever tries to get in their way, they will show no mercy. This puts the police force to shame and humiliation.

A hard boiled senior police inspector Lui Ming Chit (Andy Lau), hot on the trails of Nam and his tight crew, determines to put an end to this madness that causes the lives of innocent people. But he soon comes face with the cruel reality that the usual police tactics are too futile to send these armed thieves behind bars. Extreme crime requires extreme justice, even if it means crossing his moral line. To Sing Pong (Gordon Lam), an ex-con desperate to leave his criminal past behind, volunteers to be Lui’s informant in exchange for a fresh start with her girlfriend Yin Bing (Yao Chen). But little does he know what hellish situation he is getting himself into.

While Nam is putting together his next big score, the two colliding forces from both sides of the law, each at the top of their games, will soon face their archenemies. As Lui’s hunt heats up, their ultimate confrontation is about to take place on the streets.

As the storm passes through and the dust settles, whoever survives can hardly cope with its horrifying aftermath.

Frozen - The Much Better Full Length Trailer (Nov 2013)

Frozen animation
To be frank, when I first saw the poster and teaser trailer of the upcoming animation Frozen, it didn't strike as a blockbuster animation that gonna make it big (in the same light as Kungfu Panda or Shrek). 

However, with the recently released full-length trailer, my opinion is slightly tilted to the positive side (which is a good news). From the creators of Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, I have high hope for this to be entertaining as from the trailer, I can safely said that my hope is pretty much alive.

Frozen will be released on 27th Nov 2013 in 3D and following is the synopsis of Frozen:

When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna ( Bell), a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff (Groff) and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna's sister Elsa (Idina Menzel), the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, an amazing and comedic snowman named Olaf, Everest-like conditions and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.

Now, enjoy the trailer....
