More Spring Movies We’re Hyped For

by

Just when you thought we had named all the movies we were excited about this spring, Marvel Studios goes ahead and pushes back the release of Avengers: Infinity War to April 27. Well, with that firmly in spring’s territory, we thought why not go back and pull another batch of movies we’re hyped for this spring.

 

Avengers: Infinity War

It’s the culmination of ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that has included 18 films, with the most recent addition of Black Panther. It’ll truly be a sight to behold when all of the different characters Marvel Studios has developed in its films come together to fight the mysterious Thanos, who’s lurked in the background of some of the movies so far.

 

Pacific Rim Uprising

Giant robots fighting giant monsters. Why do I even need to go on? The sequel to 2013’s Pacific Rim looks to bring more of the great action that made the first one so enjoyable. John Boyega takes over as our lead, and if he brings the same energy he brought to the two most recent Star Wars films, that should only make things better.

 

Tomb Raider

Being a reboot plus a video game movie, this probably shouldn’t inspire much hope. However, what this film has that dispels any doubts is its lead, its Lara Croft, Alicia Vikander. Vikander is one of the best young actresses out there and should do very well in bringing the character to life. There looks to be some good action and adventure as well, which hopefully will add up to an enjoyable movie.

 

Rampage

Really? Another giant monster movie? You may be asking yourself those questions, but let’s be honest, this movie has something in it even bigger than the monsters. Dwayne Johnson. He’s become the modern day action hero and has enough charm to turn most of his films into at least a fun time. There should be no exception here.

Spring Movie Releases We’re All Hyped For

by

Spring will soon be coming, even if it currently keeps feeling like winter is coming on and off again, and spring means more movie releases. This spring some potentially heavy hitters are coming that we’re hyped for.

 

1) A Wrinkle In Time

This adaption of Madeleine L’Engle’s space fantasy family novel focuses on a young girl named Meg whose father goes missing after discovering a new form of space travel. It is up to Meg, her friend Calvin, and her brother Charles Wallace to find her father and save the universe. With Selma director Ava DuVernay at the helm of this film it looks like quite the early spring treat. Also it has Oprah as a celestial being flying through the sky, so I’m definitely seeing that.

 

2) The Strangers: Prey at Night

This anticipated horror sequel to the highly regarded 2008 film will come out this March. The sequel will focus on a family staying in a mobile home park for the night that get stalked by three masked psycho-killers. The film will not include the first director Bryan Bertino, however it will bring in Director Johannes Roberts with Bryan still staying on as a screenwriter. The film will arrive March 9.

 

3) Thoroughbreds

Also coming to theaters on March 9th. This drama thriller centers on emotional Lily and expressionless Amanda, two upper-class high school girls from Connecticut who rekindle their unexpected friendship by creating a plan to kill Lily’s stepfather and solve all their problems with the help of a hustler. Let’s see if they can pull off the perfect murder.  

 

4) Love, Simon

While everyone loves a good teenage Rom-Com, this film alters the genre a bit. The film revolves around Simon, a gay teenager who no one knows is gay, who falls for a unknown gay classmate online. Having the courage to come out to everyone and find his online crush will be mixed with laughs, fears, and heartwarming moments. Directed by CW’s The Flash showrunner Greg Berlanti, the film is set to come out March 16, 2018.

 

5) Ready Player One

This upcoming Steven Spielberg directed film takes place twenty-six years into the future where the world’s new technological obsession is not smartphones but a virtual reality world called the OASIS. When the creator of the OASIS, James Halliday, dies, he releases a contest in which if an OASIS user finds the treasured Easter Egg, then that user will receive Halliday’s massive fortune. When Wade Watts, an average teenage OASiS user finds a clue for the egg he sparks an intense hunt against corporate enemies to find the egg and has to use the assistance of his unexpected friends to fight both in the OASIS and the real world. This high-flung Sci-Fi action adventure film comes to theaters March 29, 2018.

 

These are all the spring releases we’re hyped for and like spring flowers we can’t wait to see their beauty, well, I guess their cinematic beauty at least.
