Kung Fu Panda 3 Trailer and Images

We were pleasantly surprised with the 2nd Kung Fu Panda, it might not be on the level of a How To Train Your Dragon that we anxiously anticipate but whenever we sit down to watch it, it’s always a fun ride.

Most of the actors are back with a few new surprises. Check out the trailer and some promo images.

Kung Fu Panda 3 is set to land in UK cinemas March 2016.

Episode 22: True Grit, Green Hornet and our Oscars predictions

New Episode 22 Upodcast: The Team reviews True Grit, Green Hornet in the 3D Dimension! More crack than an egg factory the team gazes into their Crystal ball and predicts the future winners of the Academy Awards. Check out the new epsiode after the jump!

 

First off, we talk about our review of Green Hornet, the film version of the comic book, of the radio show of the TV show. Whilst none of us could have imagined Michel Gondry directing such a feature, we’re damned pleased he has.  Released in the cinema graveyard slot of January, this has set the benchmark for superhero / comic book related films to come in 2011.  Green Lantern and Thor will need to be excellent to better Seth n Jay.

We then proceed from arguably the ridiculous to the sublime with genuine Oscar contender, True Grit (22min 36sec). Beautifully re-made by the Brothers Coen, what does the new version give us? Is it a Coen’s Western and if so, what kind of Western? Sadly we’ve been too lazy to watch the original John Wayne film (and in my case, any John Wayne film) and give you that comparison so you’ll have to make do with our thoughts on this one alone.

Finally we bring you our highs, lows and unknowns of the Oscars 2011 (42min 30sec). Gaze into our crystal ball as we steer you fundamentally in the wrong direction for who will win and who will lose. Make no mistake; if you use our guesses for gambling you’ll also be a loser on Oscar night.

Trailer Green Hornet

The First Green Hornet trailer has just been released and has received a collective “meh” from Geek audiences it seems. This Michel Gondry re-imagining of the popular 60’s TV show starring Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Jay Chou and the awesome Christoph Waltz from Inglorious Basterds fame. Although I do enjoy remakes and sequels unlike most people, I have to admit a tad skeptical  the whole concept of the Green Hornet re-imagining. Check out the trailer and why The Green Hornet has got us excited after the jump!

Reasons why I am excited:

  • I still like Seth Rogen even after his last few movies have bombed at the box-office and even critically, Rogen has added more of a comedic tone than the original show which is no real surprise.
  • Christophe Waltz, this is his first release after Inglorious Basterds and although he will probably never play a villain like Hans Landa, this could be the opposite of the Jew Hunter which could be interesting.
  • Michel Gondry, he’s always been an exciting and exceptionally creative director and this is probably his first truly mainstream picture although the shots we see are pretty generic.

My Question Marks:

  • Jay Chou, He’s supposed to be this Korean Pop superstar but after seeing  Rain’s ( the other Korean pop sensation) dismal performance in Ninja Assassin, I am worried as he’s taking over the mantle from the legendary Bruce Lee (dramatized in  Dragon the Bruce Lee Story or check out this clip!). Jay has some large shoes to fill (that kick really fast and high) and I am not sure he can do that.
  • The Special effects, they look a bit cheesy. Kato seems to be kicking like Johnny Cage from Mortal Kombat, I am getting a bad Speed racer vibe.
  • The general story line looks like Iron Man crossed with Batman, which could make or break the movie. But at the end of the day, how much originality can there be in a superhero origin story?
