Why did Ant-Man got postpone?

Last week we were shocked with the news of  Edgar Wright’s departure from Marvel. However more news to follow up to why he left. Director Edgar Wright is the producer Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Ant-Man-Teaser-Trailer-1“Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on ANT-MAN due to differences in their vision of the film,” a statement read. “The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly.”

Now rumours are going around that the reason Edgar left the project is because Marvel asked other writers to rewrite his script-without any input from Edgar. It seems that Marvel was not happy with Edgar’s script.

The movie was supposedly to begin shooting early next month but however due to Wright’s exit the production has been put on hold. Marvel’s President, Kevin Feige, has instructed the script to be re-written.

Now what’s weird is that Marvel and Wright had been working on Ant Man for years in which comes back the question how did script did was written without Marvel approving it and only 2 weeks before filming they decided to let re-write the script and leaving director Wright exiting the building. So the question is that did Wright really left or was he fired?

Maleficent – Review

Angelina Jolie is back with her stunning new movie, Maleficent. Maleficent is a good fairy gone back due to the betrayal of her lover. The movie basically rewrites the original character from Sleeping Beauty. Even with 11 writers for this movie, the movie doesn’t run far from the original.

Storyline
The story begins with explanation of land far away which is divided into two; one domain belongs to the world of men, and The Moors where the magical being lives.According to legend,either a hero or a villain will one day unite the land. rs_1024x759-140312101228-1024.Angelina-Jolie-Disney-Maleficnt-Vivienne.jl.031214 One day, the magical land was intrude by a young orphan boy by the name of Stefan and later befriended Maleficent. As the time flew by, friendship transformed into love and at the age of 16 Maleficent receive her first true kiss from Stefan. As both grew older, Stefan’s heart grew a little greedier and one night he decided to betray Maleficent by removing what is most valuable to Maleficent and what he need to take the throne; her wings. With the wing, Stefan became the King and married the Queen while Maleficent suffered alone. However the sped up to the time when the Queen gave birth to a baby girl and everyone were invited to give their gifts to the baby. That is when Maleficent decided to make a grand entrance and stole the show. Maleficent gave gift which was also a curse. rs_1024x759-140312101232-1024.Angelina-Jolie-Maleficent-Sleeping-Beauty-3.jl.031214 The King immediately took action by destroying all spinning wheel and also decided to keep some of it underneath the castle(Still wandering why would anyone keep something could kill their own kid). At the same time(not trusting his wife nor anyone else with his daughter), he decide to give his daughter to 3 fairies to take care off. The 3 fairies took the baby girl to a house no so far from the castle and from the very beginning they were there, Maleficent was shadowing their every move. Clearly the 3 fairies is totally useless in taking of the baby(The 3 Stooges is way smarter than them). Maleficent some how end up protecting the baby girl in certain occasion and the age of 15, the girl finally met Maleficent. Aurora – the princess, is nothing like her father. She loves everything and smiles for almost anything. When she met Maleficent, instead of being afraid she was excited. rs_1024x759-140312101333-560.jolie.cm.12614 Aurora grew close to Maleficent and likewise Maleficent aswell. Aurora would come to the magical land and play with Maleficent and other creatures(which again, fairies are bad baby sisters). One day before Aurora’s 16th birthday, the stooges fairies told Aurora of Maleficent curse and what is Maleficent. Aurora sadden by the news, decided to return the castle where her father, the King welcomes Aurora by keeping her in her room. As Maleficent’s curse takes place – Maleficent rushes to Aurora with the prince who she thought could unfold her own curse. The curse could only be broken with only a true loves kiss could awaken Aurora. At this part, the movie to a turn from the original part of the classic tale and in the end Maleficent lives. Plot: 7/10 Review:6.5/10 Imax: No

Remarks: A classic tale with beautiful twist. We have to warn you that movie is a little messy as the storyline tends to slow down and later on speed up so bear with it. Even so, the movie is beautifully written movie.

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Review

Another summer blockbuster got release today(22/5/2014) and it was worth the wait. The continuation of X-Men’s series does follow the comic a little but with a twist of Bryan Singer. The full movie action which feature Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page and many more is about the X-Men fixing the future by changing the past.


Storyline

As the title says, the movie is about travelling the past. Based on the comic it was Bishop who travelled to past, but however in this movie it’s Wolverine who does the time travelling.
The movie begins with mutants fighting with the new age Sentinels – Sentinels with ability to adopt to any power thanks to Mystique’s DNA and the X-Men’s were losing. Iceman getting his head crush, while Blink getting pierce and many more. However Kitty and Bishop were busy running away which explains the going back to the past.
Bishop’s power was to absorb energy and manipulate – somewhat similar to Rouge’s power(based on the movie not comic) and Kitty’s power is to able to time travel.
Soon after, all of the X-Men’s meet at what seem to be an old Buddhist Monastery which includes Magneto. The initial idea was to send Prof. Xavier to past but however Kitty explains that his body wouldn’t be able to sustain that kind of pain. Which means only Wolverine was the only suitable candidate.

Bryan Singer, the director seems had put in a lot of thoughts into this as the X-Men movie series is totally going to be a reboot.

In past, Wolverine is back in his old body without the Admantium(which made us sad) but after the incident of X-Men: First Class. He quickly looks for Xavier and tries to convinces him to free Magneto. Of course Xavier totally ridicule the idea but join in later. Magneto was in lock down the Pentagon and the one who frees him was Quicksilver together with Xavier, Wolverine and The Beast. After re-explaining what has happen in future, Magneto also decide to help aswell but his own agenda in play.

During the reunion of Magneto and Mystique, he didn’t hesitate to kill her and of course Xavier stopped it from happening and in between Wolverine was having a fit attack. After escaping Magneto’s assassination attempt, Mystique continued with her own mission killing Dr Bolivar Trask. Trask is a scientist who fascinates with the human mutation that he start experimenting on them which angered Mystique.
Trask is also the scientist who created the Sentinel program to protect the humans from the mutants.

After the incident of trying to kill Mystique when public, the current president at the time, Nixon decides to go ahead with the Sentinel program. Little do they know, Magneto has hijacked the Sentinel program – so instead of targeting mutant, Magneto could control it to attack on human.
During the launch of the program, Magneto controlled the Sentinel to attack on human. At the same time Wolverine,The Beast and Xavier were trying to stop Mystique from killing Trask.

Plot: 8.5/10
Review:8.5/10

A must watch movie to all Marvel X-Men fans. Even thou the movie didn’t really follow the comic, but the bit and pieces do go back to it’s origin. Our only  nay, is the timeline. As the movie is about travelling back to the past, this crosses with X-Men Origin: Wolverine and X-Men: First Class. We still haven’t figured out how the timeline of the movie is been planned but we loved the movie storyline.
So should you watch it in 3D? Not much effect is in the 3D so might aswell save the money for some pop corn. By the way, do stay till the end credit as the movie will reveal on what is X-Men’s next instalment about.

Get On Up – Trailer

The Godfather of Soul, James Brown’s movie is coming soon. For 17 years, various people had tried to create a movie about him but however when Tate Taylor got the scripts – he decided he gonna do it.

The movie talks about James’s life before and during his fame. It starts with James six years old than, old, abandoned by his mother and left to live with his Aunt Honey, who runs a brothel. It ends in 1993 with a comeback concert after Brown served prison time for aggravated assault and eluding the police in a wild car chase.
“There is a lot of pain in this movie, but as James says, take what’s bad and flip it on its head and make it work for you,” Taylor says. “That’s what he did, and that’s what we can all learn from complicated geniuses.”

The Equalizer – Trailer

Denzel Washington plays a former black ops commando who faked his death for a quiet life in Boston. He comes out of his retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), and finds himself face to face with Russian gangsters.

Guardian of the Galaxy – Trailer

Another trailer of Guardian of the Galaxy finally is out and this time is more than what previous trailer offered. This time we get to see how the 5 got together and what the movie is about a little. To be honest, the trailer doesn’t reveal alot but we know for a fact that orb “Star Lord” stole is the what they have to save to the galaxy. Based on the trailer, we highly doubt that this movie will come close to the other Marvel movie that have come out – it’s gamble now.
