Everyone fell in love with Groot in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film back in 2014. Then, during the credits, everyone fell in love with Groot again, this time as a sapling. In 2017, I predict Baby Groot to be the cutest pop-culture icon of all! Forget Minions and BB-8, Baby Groot is what you and your children (if they exist) are going to want for Christmas this year! In honor of his ...READ ON!
Below is the final theatrical trailer for what looks to be, at the very least, the most visually stunning Marvel Cinematic Universe film yet… GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, VOL. 2! So, for once, I’m just going to let it be… (Though there is obviously so much I could say…) “Groot, put your seatbelt on!” ‘Nuff ...READ ON!
For the longest time, I’ve had in my head the perfect, four movie plan for a Spider-Man story-arc that delivers fully fleshed-out origins for my favorite villains, Venom and Carnage, leaving them space to grow, breath, and become the arch-villains they are in the Comics. It’s likely said plan has been materializing in the back of my brain since 2007, the year Spider-Man 3 ...READ ON!
Since the day the news broke that Spider-Man was joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, via a deal between Marvel and Sony, everyone has been fascinated with how Peter Parker would interact with The Avengers. Captain America: Civil War added fuel to the excitement-fire by revealing the first pieces of Spider-Man’s relationship with the likes of Iron Man and Captain America, and now people ...READ ON!
It seems like whenever DC releases something awesome, say the new Teasers for Wonder Woman, Justice League, and The Lego Batman Movie, Marvel strikes back and eclipses them. While these DC titles are all higher profile (it’s Wonder Women, Batman, and The Justice League for Christ’s sake), Marvel Studios has turned one of their lesser known comics into another unique genre crossover ...READ ON!
Marvel’s Netflix corner of the MCU looks as though it will continue to blossom (not that anything can really grow in Marvel’s version of Hell’s Kitchen or Harlem). At San Diego Comic Con Thursday, Marvel Studios unveiled trailers for their next three (3!) Netflix Series. To be fair, they range from as teaser-y as you can get to full-on-bad-ass action sequence.From what I have ...READ ON!
Only MILD SPOILERS ahead. There’s nothing here that you couldn’t surmise from the trailer. Even as a huge Comic Book Movie Fan who has Marvel leanings, X-Men is one of those franchises I’ve never really cared for. X-2 is fine, I do really like First Class, but Days of Future Past and The Wolverine are simply okay. The 1st X-Men ages terribly, while X-Men 3: The Last Stand and X-Men: ...READ ON!

Last week, while my computer was down Breaking Geek’s massive array of servers was down, two little trailers hit the net and both made record-breaking splashes!First, following the amazing poster for Zoolander No. 2 (above), Paramount quickly offered up a true trailer with real footage, not just a classically Derek Zoolander nonsensical conversation with “Stephen ...READ ON!
Evil organizations are all the craze these days on the silver screen, taking center stage in at least four 2015 Major Blockbusters: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, SPECTRE (ha), and the forthcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Nothing like a whole industry of villains and evil doers, often, but not always, operating in the shadows. And though several of the ...READ ON!
We’re falling into the Holiday Movie Season, kicked off last weekend by the mediocre SPECTRE and The Peanuts Movie. Things will start to get crazy with the release of Mocking Jay Part 2 and Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, all culminating with the biggest movie release of all time: Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Whether Star Wars is pulling you out of your Netflix hole, or you’ve ...READ ON!
Everyone’s a Super Hero these days… or at least a character based on a comic iteration, be they a powerless vigilante or a supporting character. Playing just “3 Degrees of Marvel” is easier than “6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon.” There are many memorable superhero performances that have redefined comic book characters. Who can imagine anyone but Hugh Jackman playing ...READ ON!

Read Part I, where I cover my 6th through 4th favorite movies now if you missed it. First, I must make a clarification; on the first part of my list, I stated that I’m trying to balance quality and enjoyment level when ranking the best films of Summer ...READ ON!
We did it! We survived one of the highest grossing summers on record due mostly to Universal Studios hits like Jurassic World, Minions, and Straight Outta Compton. Not that Disney doesn’t deserve credit for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Inside Out, and Ant-Man. But this list isn’t about the money grossed, it’s about the quality of films we watched. What were the 6 best films of ...READ ON!
Nick and Andrew return… With A Vengeance! Though talk switches from Suicide Squad and Batman V Superman to Jurassic World, everything always ends up ...READ ON!
Everyone dismissed 2015’s reboot of Fantastic Four (or FANT4STIC) before we saw any footage. The first trailer changed that, giving us a much darker film than the original two films (starring Chris Evans as the Human Torch before his turn as Captain America). In fact, the trailer was chilling and dark in all the right ways. Trailer #2 continues to intrigues me; the accident still looks ...READ ON!
We’ve seen A LOT, I mean A LOT, A LOT, of Avengers: Age of Ultron footage. So much so, that I’ve stopped posting new scenes and extended because there is LITERALLY new material every day as we get closer and closer to the release of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ 2nd adventure. (The last clip I posted was of the already infamous Hulk Vs. Hulkbuster battle!) Today’s TV ...READ ON!
