DAYS OF THE FUTURE PAST AND THE GREEN INFERNO
FRIDAY MADNESS NO.5
Hello everyone! After a couple of weeks without publishing new editions of my chronicles segment I’ve decided to change the format of FRIDAY MADNESS in order to be more attractive for everyone! Instead of being an opinion section of Panda’s Choice, FRIDAY MADNESS will be the space in which I will discuss the current week’s movie news, trailers, releases and everything that it’s trending in Hollywood. This week I watched two trailers for two movies that I’m really excited to watch. The first one, X-MEN: Days of The Future Past is a bit obvious since almost everyone is excited to watch it. Bryan Singer’s career and talent is remarkable and after this powerful trailer I’m expecting an awesome movie.
Bryan Singer’s earlier work in the X-MEN saga and the latest X-MEN: DAYS OF THE FIRST CLASS has increased my expectations for this next movie. The story looks really amazing and some of the action sequences and visual effects look top quality.
Also online this week was the first trailer for Eli Roth’s promissing new horror movie based on Deodato’s controversial movie Cannibal Holocaust (watch my review here). The trailer looked a bit short with lots of crazy things happening and there’s still a lot of fuzz going on regarding the similarties between this one and Deodato’s movie. It’s a story about cannibalism so therefore, viwers discription for this trailer is advised.
Shot in remote places, The Green Inferno is Eli Roth’s attempt to reach Deodato’s cruelty in Cannibal Holocaust. Since the animal cruelty scenes were the ones that made Deodato’s movie reaching stardom, I’m forced to confess that even though the story looks a lot like the original, there’s no space or laws that allow Eli Roth to shot violent scenes as the ones Deodato did. An iconic horror movie or just a dumb remake? Let’s wait for its debut and then I shall tell my opinion.
In case you’re not into this goryish fest I’ve also some other great clips to show you. At last I saw the trailer for the up-comming movie starring Ben Affleck and based on a bestseller that won Goodreads Choice Award in 2012 (click here for more details): Gone Girl. According to the fans of the book, the trailer looked faithful to the story and I found it quite interesting. This misteryous thriller will hit theaters this October.
And if you’re looking for movies to watch this weekend, since Transcendence is receiving some bad reviews, I invite you to read this week’s MUST (it will be published this Sunday) about Ghostbusters!
