Clips Fast & Furious 6, Iron Man 3 & A Bit Of News

I would also like to say, the trailer for Thor the Dark World and Man Of Steel looked awesome in 3D, I mean, they looked amazing! On the big screen, Man Of Steel plays quite well and seeing the intense graphics definitely heightened by desire to see it asap! 
It is the best of Iron Man.
The third installment is a great point of argument that sequels really to foster creativity: with the initial release of a film, like Iron Man (the first one), there is the originality; with the releasing of subsequent films, the audience all ready has a bond with the characters, so the film makers are walking a tricky line: one, maintain that bond by keeping the character consistent with what audiences have seen before, but deepen the character so audiences see them in a new environment where they have to adapt and convert, but still remain the character the audiences wants. Iron Man 3 has perfected this formula and it's probably the film of the year, although there is tremendous competition, we will probably look at it as the year's best. The review is coming and we are not going to be focusing on capitalism and socialism; it's in there, but Iron Man 3 and GI Joe Retaliation reveal the villain of what is called one-world rule; mostly, however, we are going to be examining game theory.
We will talk about Despicable Me closer to the sequel's release date this summer, however, it's safe to say Gru (Steve Carrell) is a capitalist and a thief in the original but he's converted. The two most important aspects of the film is that it's the North Koreans who have the shrink machine Gru needs to steel the moon, and it's the name of the bank Gru goes to for a loan (formerly Lehmann Brothers). Knowing the Anti-Villain League wants Gru's assistance to catch a really bad villain in the sequel, reveals that--like Vin Diesel's Dom in Fast & Furious 6, Gru has been converted from being an outlaw to aiding the law, unlike The Lone Ranger when the Lone Ranger turns into a criminal.
Al Pacino has left the cast of Despicable Me 2 due out this summer. The film is scheduled to stay on course for the July 2 release as Benjamin Bratt has taken the vacant role and will re-record the voice of Eduardo, the enemy of Gru (Steve Carrell) in this version of the film. Bradley Cooper's fast-tracked biography of the most lethal sniper in American military history Chris Kyle has gotten director Steven Spielberg with Cooper to play Kyle (it appears Spielberg's Roboapocalypse has been put on hold for a while). Director Christopher Nolan's next project, the sci-fi film Interstellar, has confirmed Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConnaughey as leads, with the great Jessica Chastain in talks to also star; joining the director again after their work on The Dark Knight Rises is Sir Michael Caine (this will be their sixth time working together). The film is being kept secret, but it has been revealed it involves physicist Kip S. Thorne's theoretical work on the existence of wormholes, used as a shortcut through space and time, which featured prominently in The Avengers (where Tony put the nuke launched at Manhattan at the end of the film) and seems to be mentioned constantly in Iron Man 3.
My sister will be watching The Great Gatsby with me, so in spite of how anti-capitalist I think the film will be, she's good at swaying me with other perspectives and angles a film can take, so we will all have the benefit of her input as well. I am dreading the film but she's really looking forward to it.
Kevin Feige has confirmed that Dr Strange is the next Marvel hero they are going to be exploring in Phase 3 of The Avengers, with the brother-sister duo Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch joining The Avengers 2 cast. Lily Collins (Mirror, Mirror and The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones) has been confirmed for the lead in the upcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies written by the same liberal who did Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.  Owen Uziel (Mortal Kombat) has been picked to re-write the script for 21 Jump Street 2 and Men In Black IV; Men In Black III earned more than the previous two films but it's uncertain how involved with the fourth installment Will Smith will be.
Something I was not expecting: two clips have been released for Fast and Furious 6! Based on his performance as Owen Shaw in the film, Luke Evans was offered the lead for the newest remake of Dracula; in this clip, an intimate and intense discussion between Shaw and Dom (Vin Diesel) over the fate of Lettie (Michelle Rodriguez):
This is going to be an important scene in the film; why? The race takes place in London.
And a clip of the fight scene in the subway:
We know when Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) finds Dom that--even though it appears he has the perfect life now--something is missing. Of all the things Dom's crew could ask for from Hobbs for their help, they ask for full pardons, and in our minds as the viewers and recipients of this story, we have to connect Lettie's re-appearance with this pardon to fill in what is missing in Dom's life for him to risk losing what he has for what he doesn't have. Part of the conflict--at least in my mind--is the role the cop from Brazil Elena (Fast Five) will play especially since Dom has found Lettie again, although that doesn't automatically mean Dom and Lettie end back up together, especially since we all ready know Fast & Furious 7 is in the works.
