It’s our least favorite Monday of the year — the one after the holiday season. But that doesn’t mean it has to be a sad one here at Movie Morsels, not when we’ve got the news of Sly Stallone’s next Rambo and Rocky movies, as well as the latest Cinderella trailer and featurette, word on when we can watch the next Jurassic World trailer, and an image of what is quite possibly the coolest-looking Guardians of the Galaxy collectible we’ve yet seen!
Those who have been crying out for a follow-up to 2008’s uproariously funny Rambo (in which John Rambo wielded a gun so powerful as to uproot trees) will be happy to hear that Sylvester Stallone has announced the title of the fifth Rambo film, the ominous-sounding Rambo: Last Blood. Sly will write, direct, and of course star in what is expected to the character’s last adventure. He’ll then return to his other iconic role as Rocky Balboa in Creed, directed by Ryan Coogler, in which the Italian Stallion will train the grandson (played by Michael B. Jordan) of his late friend and one-time rival Apollo Creed. The busy beefcake filmmaker is also set to begin work on a film about the life of real-life gangster Gregory “the Grim Reaper” Scarpa.
Good Morning America has confirmed that the next trailer for Universal’s Jurassic World will indeed air during the Super Bowl on February 1st on the company’s NBC network. The Chris Pratt starrer will arrive in theaters in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D on June 12th. This summer’s other anticipated blockbusters are also expected to debut trailers during the Super Bowl. We’ll keep you updated on all of ’em.
Guardians of the Galaxy
2014 may be over but the year’s most successful film is still going strong in the form of merchandise, and none continues to excite us more than Hot Toys’ line of Guardians of the Galaxy figures. The company has just released an image of the next character it will tackle — none other than Death’s suitor himself, Thanos, as played by Josh Brolin. Of course this world-ravaging scene-stealer will also nicely complement your Avengers Hot Toys figures. Oh, to be able to afford these goodies…
Disney followed up last week’s international “Countdown” spot for its live-action Cinderella with a New Year’s Eve sneak peek called “Midnight Changes Everything.”
Th studio has also released a “Legacy” featurette taking viewers behind the scenes of the adaptation of its 1950 animated classic. The Kenneth Branagh-directed Cinderella — starring Cate Blanchett, Lily James, and Richard Madden — loses it glass slipper on March 13th.
Ninjas Vs Monsters
Do you likes ninjas? Do you like monsters? Then feast your eyes on the trailer for Ninjas Vs Monsters, the final film in director Justin Timpane’s horror-comedy Ninjas series (the previous installments of which were Ninjas Vs. Zombies and Ninjas Vs. Vampires). Blair Witch Project filmmaker Eduardo Sanchez produces this monster-mash-up, which pits his heroes against classic movie monsters Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, and the Werewolf (because Universal owns the rights to the Wolfman, natch). Uncork’d Entertainment brings the movie to theaters on February 2nd.
