Hello Blog Readers. This is Marcus Jackson, the FOX 10 / CW 55 Resident Movie Guru here once again.
Well I guess when it comes to literary inspiration … aka … adaptable screenplay … a comic book has more pull than a classic novel. As I told you in my last blog entry if Iron Man 3 can beat out The Great Gatsby for the top spot at the box office this past weekend it would be a contender for the Best Summer Movie of 2013. Comic Book Fans UNITED – Iron Man 3 made over $72 Million while The Great Gatsby got a little over $51 Million. This means that the pathos of Tony Stark was a little more intriguing to movie goers than the updated version of the madcap lavish life of the Great Gatsby. Summer Movie Showdown #1 goes to Iron Man 3 …. Now It’s Time To “Energize” The Next Summer Movie Showdown …. At Warp Factor 9 … And Beyond.
Now Iron Man 3 & The Great Gatsby will have to contend with one of the most anticipated movie sequels for this year and in any movie season to date. Star Trek: Into Darkness. This continuation of the Star Trek Franchise Rebooting has all the fan boys & girls alike getting out their Starfleet uniforms from their closets and gearing up for the May 17th release … or in some places the night before on May 16th at Midnight for advance showings of the film. Director J.J. Abrams promised us a real thrill ride on board the U.S.S. Enterprise and the weekend of May 17th all of us here in the USA are going to “Bold Go …. AGAIN” on our way to the re-imagined world of the 23rd Century known as the Star Trek Universe – in the J.J. Abrams’ Space/Time Continuum.
Here is just a sample of what you’re in for. Check Out This Trailer Courtesy of IMDb …. http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi1137026585/
Like I had mentioned in previous blog entries this is just the beginning of the Summer Movie Showdown. 2013 has got a lot of really good movies that are going to be released on certain weekends at certain times to maximize your spending dollars at the box office. It’s going to be up to you to decide what movie you want to see first on those particular weekends. I must tell you the majority of these films need to be seen on the Big Screen before you decide to wait for them to be “On Demand” or rented from “Redbox” or “Netflex”.
And Remember These Keywords …. “Real 3D” & “IMAX 3D”. I know the tickets will cost you a little more but with Star Trek: Into Darkness and the soon to be released After Earth, Fast and Furious 6, Disney’s Monster’s University and Man Of Steel if you can afford it see them in these formats on the big screen. You won’t be disappointed.
