Trailer Time: Independence Day Resurgence

AttheMovies_t670

Yeah, we’ve got another Independence Day coming for some reason.  Another trailer has dropped.   How is it?

Self-referential?  Cliched?  Half-baked explanations for the total absence of Will Smith?  Yup.  All that is accounted for.  Like the last one, it looks like a lot of ideas and shots taken from other, better movies.  See for yourself after the cut.

Simpsons Did It!: “Stark Raving Dad”

Yay!  Season three!  I haven’t lost my sanity yet!

And look, another celebrity who may be both the biggest one yet and who had a pseudonym listed in the closing credits, despite being very obviously identified.

Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition- Watson’s Rebuttal

goldcoinsI’m totally off the grid these days, but Ryan’s predictions are so bad I had to come in and rip them to shreds and give you the REAL numbers.  His bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out were pretty weak.  He called his performance was mixed–but for him mixed was chocolate plus peanut butter.  In reality, it is a mix of Ex-lax and motor oil.  So I am going to go, one by one, through his 2016 picks and give the real number.  We have a lunch bet on who has the lowest delta between the acutals and their predictions.  NO PRICE IS RIGHT RULES IN EFFECT!

Bold Predictions: 2016 Edition

goldcoinsOne year ago I made some bold predictions about how the 2015 domestic box office would turn out.  My performance was mixed–got some, missed some others.  But now it’s time to look ahead to 2016.  Jump after the break to see what I predict will be the top ten grossing films of the year along with 33 other movies I’m making some bold predictions on!

2016.  Did any of us think we’d live this long?  Yeah, probably.  We’re Geeks, not morbid.

So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious?  See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.

That ID4 Sequel You Never Asked For Now Has A Trailer

independence_day_resurgence

Like many mid-90’s popcorn blockbusters, Independence Day often gets a hard time.  I’m not sure why (ok, I get stuff like the “computer virus” being snickered at) but it is a great mindless summer movie, with good characters, effects, acting, etc.  But I’m a sucker for things blowing up.  So I’ve always liked ID4, but one thing I never felt was required was a sequel.

But 20 years later, as usual, no on listens to me and we have Indepence Day: Resurgence scheduled for release on June 24th, 2016.  Remember that Will Smith guy who pretty much carried the film?  No one wants to see him anymore.  Let’s just bring back Jeff Goldblum from the core stars.  Hey, it worked so well for Jurrasic Park! (I’m among the few that liked The Lost World, but that’s my joke and I’m sticking to it.)

You can watch the trailer for this “long awaited” sequel after the break.  Let us know what you think.  When we watched it in the Gabbing Geek editorial meeting, Ryan and I both felt it struggled to decide if it was an intense action flick or a complete rehash of the original.

One of the hottest topics on the Gabbing Geek website these days tends to be Margot Robbie’s upcoming portrayal of the villainous Harley Quinn.  Particularly popular is her “Daddy’s Little Monster” t-shirt.  The attention continues to surprise me so I wanted to look at JUST how big a star Robbie and her character are set to become.  And as always, we at Gabbing Geek like to have some numbers.

Shooting Stars: Which Hollywood Superstars Are Losing Their Edge?

depp pirates

In an article originally published in January, Gabbing Geek asked whether Johnny Depp was intentionally trying to end his A-List movie star status.  The quirky Depp may be tired of franchises, but there are other A-listers who seem to be on the same downward trajectory.  They, however, don’t seem to WANT to be shooting stars.  Whose careers are in the toilet and what can they do to can back on top?  We at Gabbing Geek investigate!

I admit, I’m just using this pic to get page views.

Did you see the Suicide Squad footage from Comic-Con and think, “that looks pretty cool.  I recognize…um…is that the Joker?  And maybe that girl is…that crazy harlequin girl he hangs around with.  And, oh, there’s Batman!  And Will Smith!  And…that guy from The Killing.  I think he was in Robocop.  What’s his name?  Tom Hardy?”

Well, you’re probably not alone.  If you need an introduction to all things Suicide Squad, check out the video after the break.
