Having had the pleasure of seeing the awesomeness that is the first entry of The Raid series and without even knowing the plot of this sequel, I already know I need to see this film. Some of my favorite films are action movies and with all of the fighting, gun play, and all around bloodshed, The Raid 2 might just be a great intro to an epic night out with the fellas. This testosterone injected behemoth looks sure to please any being with a love of Grand Theft Auto 5,  beer and movies that kick ass, and that to me says we have a winner. Check out the violently intriguing Red Band trailer of The Raid 2: Berandal below.

Ok. So we all know the first Captain America was kind of a letdown…Or maybe that’s just how I felt. Anyway, Marvel recently released the UK trailer for the Captain America sequel and after watching it, I can tell you that this is a huge step up from the first one. With more action scenes, better actors, and new characters, this looks like it’s going to do numbers for Marvel in the first quarter of 2014. I didn’t want to see the first installment at the theater, but after watching this preview, I definitely want to see this one. Check out Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) kicking some bad guy ass and causing mayhem in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier. (Marvel UK’s Youtube Channel)

Yes, you read that headline correctly. It appears the creators of the Paranormal Activity franchise are taking the major spotlight off of the family of the original castmembers and are redirecting the curse on a different group of unsuspecting victims. While the setting of the film is still California, the cast of next year’s Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones is an all Latino cast, giving the franchise a more diverse appeal. Not that the film needed diversity. I mean, we were all just fine watching Katie’s family go to shambles at the hand of the occult…or whatever those freaky little happenings they were having with the kids was. But, nonetheless I can’t say i’m not happy to see a more cultured version of the franchise and from the looks of the trailer the new cast tie in pretty well with their predecessors. So, at least this installment won’t feel forced or as such a huge departure as Halloween III: Season of the Witch (snore fest) was from every single other Halloween film in the franchise. Although this installment is a spinoff, I think this is what the franchise needed to remove the blatant “Katie’s family is haunted” redundancy from the audiences view and refresh the series.

Liam Neeson is back ladies and gentleman. But, this time he’s using his “very particular set of skills” as an air marshall simultaneously set out to save the passengers on the same plane he is being framed as a terrorist of. Crazy huh? Intrigued yet? You should be. Check him out in the trailer for Non-Stop below and let me know if you will be going to the theater on February 28th, 2014 to see Mr. Taken himself spring into action on the big screen.

For all of you race car gamers who have begged and pleaded for a Need For Speed movie, it appears the cinema gods (DreamWorks Pictures) have finally responded to your whimpering in the form of an action-packed high-end racing flick that’ll even give the vehicles from Fast and the Furious a run for their money. Need For Speed the movie takes gamers into the live action world of high stakes tournament racing. Although it is Fast and the Furios-esque, this ladies and gentleman is a totally different beast.

In the trailer we see Tobey Marshall, the lead character played by Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, The Last House on the Left) racing across country against multiple supercars and a barrage of police. From all of the crashes, explosions and angry facial expressions on Marshall’s face, Need For Speed the movie looks to be a fast-paced, heart-pounder with a grab bag of mayhem, vengeance and retribution all wrapped up into one hell of a film. Let me be the first to say, “Thank You Cinema Gods! We appreciate this gift and will not disappoint you on March 14, 2014.” Also, “Please Don’t Crash The Bugatti!” As far as the plot and the acting in the film, I already know it won’t be oscar worthy. But, that’s not why you go to see a movie like this. With that said, I’ve done too much typing already. Let’s allow the movie trailer to speak for itself and as usual let me know what you think by leaving a comment in the comments section.

It’s looking like 2014 will be a great year for Kevin Hart (About Last Night). Ice Cube joins him in the new comedy Ride Along for lots of laughs and some action as well. Anything Kevin Hart touches turns to comedic gold these days and it doesn’t seem like his Midas Touch will be leaving anytime soon. I will be going to the theater to see this film. Check out the preview below and let me know if you will too.

“The Greek general Themistocles battles an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes.” (IMDB)

2006: I remember waiting in line with my college roommates for over an hour to see the original 300 for free at an early screening at the University of Maryland’s Hoff Theater. It was my freshman year and I remember everyone in line so energized to watch 300 Spartans battle it out against Xerxes and his vast  Persian empire. The occasional college crowd cheers and gasps for air as we watched arrow after arrow and sword upon sword being thrust upon the Persian empire definitely heightened the level of excitement for the evening. That night we left the theater wanting to kick people into giant holes in the ground and shout, “This Is Sparta!!!!” repeatedly. It was a gloriously good time. 2014: I know I won’t be waiting in a super long line. Nor will I see the film for free. (Unless my dad decides he wants to pay for my ticket. LoL) But, I do know that I will be with friends and family and action film enthusiasts alike to watch The Rise of An Empire. If you haven’t seen the first 300, I highly advise you to. And if you have, I highly advise you watch the preview below and comment below to let me know if you’re planning on hitting the theater on March 7th, 2014 to watch this “battle of epic proportions.”
