Debuting this week: Kingsman: The Secret Service, Big Hero 6, Extant

 


Kingsman: The Secret Service

Tim
This movie looks cool. It’s like James Bond meets wire fu movies for a new generation. I love the “senior” members of the cast. Hopefully, packing that much talent into a room can only mean good things. I hope that this is the beginning of a new franchise worth getting excited for.
 
Trevor
I’m feeling pretty bipolar about this one. On one hand, my inner gadget nerd is hanging out screaming that this is going to be awesome. But then I sit back and think about this show and what it’s promising and don’t find much depth. I think this is going to be another G.I. Joe, where you just need to shut off the analytical side of your mind and just go with it. I knew that going into G.I. Joe and loved it. I’m thinking I’ll do the same with this one.
 
Cortney
I think this looks great. Matthew Vaughn hasn’t let me down yet. I’ve really liked all of his movies. I’m also excited to see Colin Firth take on an action/adventure movie. The characters look fun and interesting. The only thing that has me concerned is Taron Egerton. I’ve never heard of him before and this trailer makes him look kind of un-charismatic. Hopefully he has some personality. Other than that I’m sure my wife and I will be in line opening weekend for this.


Big Hero 6

Tim
The trailer reminded me a little of the teaser for Frozen with Olaf and Sven battling over a carrot on the ice. It was a cute introduction to the film, but ultimately ended up not being something directly lifted from the story, but served more as way to illustrate the tone of the movie. I believe in Disney and Marvel, and this movie could be the best thing to happen to Disney since Cars. That franchise has been one of their most lucrative over time, especially with merchandise for boys, and this could be the next big thing. The trailer doesn’t do much to tell us what the movie will really be about, but as teasers go, my boys and I are interested.
 
Trevor
This trailer is funny and cute. It provides no real depth, but for this I don’t think I need any. It looks fun and I’m sure Disney’s going to do something with this newly built super-hero. I’m kind of excited to see the cosplayers that are dressing up based on this show.
 
Cortney
I thought the same thing as Tim. I bet this scene won’t even be in the movie. I hope this will be cool, but with the money “Frozen” has made I’m betting they’re kicking themselves for not having their next movie be a princess/musical movie. Oh well. This looks cool and Disney animation is on a roll. As far as I’m concerned they’re doing better at the moment than Pixar. So here’s hoping this one rocks.
 


Extant


Tim
I’m intrigued. This is one of those shows that could be really great with a cool, sci-fi hook. Or it could be a horrible bomb with lackluster mysteries and disappointing answers. I don’t see much room for a middle ground. Halle Berry and Steven Spielberg bring a lot of credibility to the project, but genre stuff like this is difficult to do and only the best seem to survive. I’ll consider checking this out, but I’d like to hear a little more and see some early reviews.
 
Cortney
The first trailer I saw for this did not impress me. I can’t remember the last time Steven Spielberg (who I’m a fan of) has made a good television show. And I’m not really a Halle Berry fan either. But this new trailer has peaked my interest. The human/robot aspect of the show adds another layer, that has me intrigued. So we’ll see. I’ll be checking the reviews to see if this one’s worth checking out this summer. It can’t be worse than “Under the Dome.”
 
Trevor
Ok, I saw the trailer first and then read Cortney and Tim’s reviews and was very confused. The trailer alone makes this show look really awful so I had a hard time reconciling that. Then I watched the First Look clip (which I intentionally posted first here). Now I get where they’re coming from. Having seen that, I’m thinking this show looks pretty good. I’ll go see it. Just goes to show that you may get a wrong first impression from a trailer.

Writer & Photographer at ComicCon.tips
Trevor began his forray into nerdom as a kid peddling his bike all the way to the local bookstore to purchase comic books. The boring superhero comics weren’t good enough for Trevor, he wanted the real ones. The ones with ducks. Now who's laughing while he’s on his way to cash in all those valuable Ducktales comics. Soon he’ll have his own money bin full to the brim. These days, to fill the time before the money bin construction completes (and begins), Trevor fills his time with photography, movies, television and comic book conventions. You can find his cosplay Meet & Greet mini-shoot and articles on this site as well as prints of his photographs being sold by cosplayers throughout the land.

P.S. Trevor converted to Marvel & DC comics and movies later on, so no heartburn on that one, right?
