Power Rangers (2017) Poster

Power Rangers

(2017)

    –   Action | Adventure | Sci-Fi

A group of high-school kids, who are infused with unique superpowers, harness their abilities in order to save the world.
Director:

Dean Israelite

Stars:

Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin

Watch Trailer:

THE BUZZ: Despite the worldwide popularity of The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, there’s still a question mark at the end of any sentence regarding how this modern-day movie will fare at the worldwide box office. Regardless, we love the pop appeal of the twentysomething main cast and are all sorts of primed for an OTT performance from Elizabeth Banks as Rita Replusa. And we cannot imagine this will be a one-off adventure for the kids from Angel Grove.

Life (2017) Poster

Life

(2017)

    –   Horror | Sci-Fi | Thriller

A team of scientists aboard the International Space Station whose mission of discovery turns to one of primal fear when they find a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth.
Director:

Daniel Espinosa

Stars:

Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, Olga Dihovichnaya

Watch Trailer:

THE BUZZ: I’m sorry, Passengers, but when a movie takes me to space, I want to see creatures, not an examination of monogamy. So, I’m opting for Life, a movie that doesn’t have Passengers‘ Black List pedigree – or even an original premise, if we’re going to be critical. The crew is appealing, the trailers have been effective, and Daniel Espinosa knows how to direct action. So, bring on all the aliens that we have yet to see in full, spoiler-y scale thanks to the restrained promotional campaign. – Arno

Watch Trailer:

THE BUZZ: After nearly a decade of on again/off again development at Warner Bros., Dax Shepard wound up with the lone screenwriter credit, a seat in the director’s chair, and on a motorcycle next to Michael Peña.

Wilson (2017) Poster

Wilson

(2017)
