Awesomesauce | Exclusive 4 Min Super Preview for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

So far it seems like The Avengers is surely going to be the biggest film of the year. I’ve already seen it twice and I can see why it’s made almost 4 billion and counting in revenue. The film just had all the components of comedy, action, great acting, special effects, and overall it was just one of the best movies I’ve seen this year. It’s hard to measure how the other films this summer are going to stack up in comparison to The Avengers.

I’m not sure how well Prometheus, The Dark Knight, and The Amazing Spider-Man will do at the box office, but so far the trailers and exclusives for each film have been promising.

One of the most promising clips I’ve seen is the exclusive 4 minute super preview for The Amazing Spider-Man. I was already planning on seeing the film, but the exclusive super preview sealed the deal for me. There is no way I’m missing out on seeing The Amazing Spider-Man. It just looks really really good.

I doubt it will beat The Avengers in revenue at the box office, but it still could be a big summer movie. Check out the exclusive 4 minute super preview below. You think it’s going to be a box office hit?

Awesomesauce | The Avengers 1978 Movie Promo [1952 Trailer + 2012 Trailer]

Dude and dudettes, I’m super stoked for the May 4th release of The Avengers. OMFG, I can’t wait!!! I’m just looking forward to seeing my favorite characters, especially Thor, Iron Man, and Hulk kick some major ass. It’s probably going to be such an epic movie, that I might have to see it twice (I saw X-Men First Class 3 times.)

I know I’m not the only geek out there that is almost drooling everyone they see the trailers and TV spots, so I’m glad to know that someone decided to have a little bit of fun and make a The Avengers ’78 Movie Promo.

The trailer is oh so old school. It’s weird to watch this fake trailer for a movie that was never made, then to go watch the high-def and super badass trailers for the upcoming The Avengers. But I surely have to say I enjoyed watching the genius editing and mashup work of The Avengers ’78 Movie Promo. Plus, I used to love watching Hulk and seeing him telling Mr. McGee “don’t make me angry.” Since my last name is McGee, I used to always crack up at that line.

Oh, and there is also a trailer for what The Avengers would look like if the movie was made back in the 50s. Haha, weird right? Yeah, I couldn’t wrap my head around that, but it still cool to watch.

Check out Earth’s Mightiest Heroes below and see what they would look like in the 70s, 50s, and of course just because I’m super stoked, I’m going to post the 2012 trailer. Such a geek!

It’s Official, Samuel Jackson Has the Art of Playing “Evil” Down to a Science

It amazes me how Samuel Jackson can continuing staying in the acting game, and constantly playing roles that give him the chance to do what he does best; telling people to shut the hell up and basically stressing the importance of how he expects things to go, his way.

I’m a huge fan of Samuel Jackson, and I love how he always has these “seriously, shut up, let me give a speech” moments in his films. Usually he speeches are pretty good, but I’m not going to lie, his speech in Deep Blue Sea, followed by getting eaten by the shark, always cracks me up. He was just so cantankerous! But then again, that’s what Samuel does best, playing a cantankerous bad ass who gets the job done. So when I first saw the trailer for Meeting Evil, I knew it was about to be on like Donkey Kong!!

Prior to seeing the trailer for Meeting Evil, I was only expecting to see Sam Jackson do his thing as Nick Fury in The Avengers. But watching Meeting Evil, a film based off the crime-thriller by Chris Fisher, truly showed off a dark & sinister side of Samuel. The film co-stars Luke Wilson, who is basically known for his roles at that happy go-lucky guy or the boyfriend who just can’t seem to get it right. The funny thing, Luke knows that he is typecast, and in an interview with IFC.com, he explains why he decided to take the role in Meeting Evil. Click here to read that interview, it’s pretty good!

So, let’s get down to what I’ve learned from watching Meeting Evil. Well for starters, Samuel Jackson scares me. After watching Meeting Evil, I realized that he does too good of a job playing evil. Seriously, he’s got it down to a science. I mean I knew he had it in him to be really rough around the edges, but in Meeting Evil he just plays this sick, twisted, and extremely insane evil guy that just decides to terrorize Luke Wilson, yet doesn’t actually try to kill him.

Towards the end of the movie, you sort of see this twist unfold in which we learn the truth upon why Samuel decides to terrorize Luke and essentially f*** up his day. But prior to the revelations at the end of the movie, you have to sit still and go on this rollercoaster ride of Sam Jackson killing people, letting out sinister laughs, and rationalize that he just wants to be Luke’s friend. No harm in that, right? Wrong!!! Samuel’s character, whose name is Richie, idea of friendship is basically murdering people that might potentially upset Luke. And if they haven’t upset Luke or possibly might do harm by saying something rude, then Richie just decides to murder them anyways. He enjoys killing, something he surely leaves off job applications when asked about his hobbies.

From the get-go, the movie brings the thrill. From the sinister close-ups of Sam Jackson to the maniacal rationalizations, the character Richie keeps the momentum of thrill rolling. It’s one of those movies that is quite murderous in it’s overall message, but you can’t help but to watch it and see how the story will end.

The film won’t hit theatres until May 4th, which is the same day The Avengers hits theatres. But if you happen to be a Comcast subscriber, like myself, then you can watch the film On Demand. If you like crime thrillers or seeing Samuel Jackson be the ultimate sinister bad ass, then you should totally watch Meeting Evil.
