Opening: “Black Panther” in Theaters Everywhere (2/16/2018)

Sure a few thousand lucky fans got to see “Black Panther” last night and during the exclusive industry previews but for the rest of the world the film opens TODAY in theaters everywhere and I couldn’t be more happy about it. Those watching the continuing and building adventures in the Marvel Cinematic Universe first saw the Black Panther in “Captain America: Civil War” and since those scenes they have been clamoring for his solo feature. Let’s remind of the casting and light premise after the Official Theatrical Poster below.

Premise: After the events of Captain America: Civil War, King T’Challa returns home to Wakanda but soon finds his sovereignty challenged by factions within his own country. When two enemies conspire to bring down the kingdom, T’Challa must team up, as the Black Panther, with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje—Wakanda’s special forces—to prevent a world war. (thanks Wiki).

Opening: “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” In Theaters Everywhere (12/15/2017)

It’s time to return to a galaxy far, far away as “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens in theaters everywhere. How excited are you for this one? Pretty darned excited I’m willing to say. Let’s review the poster, some casting and a premise that I came up with on the fly 🙂

The Premise: The film continues along with the story that was begun in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and greater expands upon the Intergalactic conflict that was found taking place between the tyranny of The First Order and The Resistance.

The Cast/Characters:
Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker
Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa
Adam Driver as Kylo Ren
Daisy Ridley as Rey Jakku
John Boyega as Finn
Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron
Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata
Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux
Anthony Daniels as C-3PO
Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma
Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke
Benicio del Toro as an unnamed charter
Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo
Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Ticomber

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m pretty excited about this one despite not really finding “The Force Awakens” to be all that great. I enjoyed that one enough sure, but I didn’t love it like some of my fellow geeks did. My hope is that this film mirrors the historical practice of the second in the series being so good. Let’s face it, “Empire Strikes Back” was superb and maybe even better than the first “Star Wars” while “Attack Of The Clones” was far superior to “The Phantom Menace”. My issue is going to be like evading enemy TIE Fighters since so many of my close media discussion friends are all seeing the film on the night it opens or the next day and I cannot get there until next week. Hopefully I can skirt any information about it until next Wednesday which is the preferred day that I’d like to go. I might even need to turn off my personal Facebook for a couple of days to be on the safe side. What do you readers think about this opening? Is it the film you have been anticipating the most this year or was it one of the other ones like “Thor: Ragnarok”, “Wonder Woman”, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” or maybe even “Justice League”. Let me know in the comments section below and please NO SPOILERS if you have seen it. Those folks can just say they loved it or didn’t. Once I get to the theater, I will map out a movie review that will be as spoiler free as possible. May The Force Be With You my readers.
