It is a great time to be a sci-fi geek! There are so many incredible-looking movies coming soon and we just can't wait! Take a look at these thirteen that are just pining to suck the life out of our wallets! Captain America: The Winter Soldier First up, we have next Friday's Captain America sequel! The rise of Bucky, the fall of Nick Fury, the introduction of The Falcon! And, oh, Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow playing the Cap's personal matchmaker... o_O The Signal To tell you the truth, I hadn't heard anything about this movie until Harvey mentioned it. What the hell is happening to Nick? What's his condition? What's the signal? Why isn't Morpheus offering me pills?! The Signal kind of seems to pull elements from District 9, Chronicle, and Contagion, and wraps it with a neat little black bow on its head. It looks promising and I can't wait to see it! Maleficent There's not much else to say here that hasn't already been said, but can you tell we're just dying to see this?! This new trailer isn't helping any! Now we've learned the titular iconic Disney villain was in fact victimized by man and had her wings stolen! The scandal! The outrage! RELEASE THE
Only Lovers Left Alive
The second movie I hadn't heard of until Boss Walker brought it up! We've been inundated with vampires, we all know this already, but who cares when there's NAKED TOM HIDDLESTON in the trailer?!
The Amazing Spiderman 2
Now we've reached a point where a promising movie stands on shaky ground. 2012's Amazing Spiderman neither astonished nor disappointed, it did well but many hardcore fans either really hated it or really loved it -- personally, I just really dug it. This time around, however, we see Spidey coming face-to-face with Electro and Harry Osborne as the Green Goblin, we're also being introduced to the Sinister Six, but whether we're seeing them all or just being waltzed into a third film, no one can say yet. There's also rumor after rumor, speculation after speculation, that Venom is also appearing, or it could be Carnage. Who knows... we'll see! I certainly plan on watching, though!
This trailer completely caught me by surprise! It's no secret that I think Channing Tatum should only be looked at (while naked) and not heard, and that Eddie Redmayne (who is our featured image in this post) is a dead-sexy ginger and I'd have never cast him and Tatum together, but...wow! The Wachowski's certainly aren't disappointing this time around! Visually, anyway, we'll see how this one goes...
X-Men: Days of Future Past
I just... I don't know anymore. Between Kitty Pryde no longer being the hero that ventures into the past (as she did in the comics; now it's Wolverine for some reason), giving her "time-traveling abilit[ies]," having yet another version of William Stryker (that's miraculously pulled a Benjamin Button and gotten younger since X-Men: First Class), a weird-looking Quicksilver, and turning Beast human until he gets angry (what the internet is now calling a "Blue Hulk"), I just... I don't care anymore. I just don't care. Days of Future Past is being touted as this summer's number one highly anticipated movie, which makes it worthy of a mention, but I probably won't see this until it's out on Redbox because my 16 year-old cousin will want to see it. We fucking hate you here at #nerdjizz though, Bryan Singer.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
...I have nothing. It's too soon to tell. Michael Bay though, that's enough of a deterrent.
WHY ARE YOU EATING LIGHTBULBS, AMELIA POND?!
Transformers: Age of Extinction
Grimlock is the only thing holding my interest.
Guardians of the Galaxy
I have to admit, I have very minimal knowledge of the Guardians of the Galaxy but sign me up any day for shirtless Chris Pratt! Also, blue Amy Pond!
So...basically...a beta of the Matrix? LOLZ! I'm over Johnny Depp but this looks interesting enough! Anyone wanna take me? I'll buy In-N-Out or Carl's Jr. after!
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
I don't know that we needed this? But there's definitely an interest in the public for it, and I didn't hate the last movie either.
