I greatly enjoyed the “Resident Evil” films that starred Milla Jovovich as they were tons of creepy and action packed fun. Most of you know that these films are based on the popular video game franchise and now we have arrived at the series “final” chapter. The first teaser trailer was released a couple of days ago so check it out below. I’ll return with some thoughts afterwards.
Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. In a race against time Alice will join forces with old friends, and an unlikely ally, in an action packed battle with undead hordes and new mutant monsters. Between losing her superhuman abilities and Umbrella’s impending attack, this will be Alice’s most difficult adventure as she fights to save humanity, which is on the brink of oblivion.

It’s once again time to spin that web and swing around New York City with Peter Parker as “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” opens up in theaters nationwide today. Did you see “Amazing Spider-Man” when it opened in 2012? Did you enjoy it? Let’s discuss after digging into the poster.
“Dead or alive, you’re coming with me!” was what he said back in 1987 during the original “Robocop” film, and today marks his return to the big screen in a new film that reboots his origin and potential missions. Check out the poster below.
It’s time to spin that web but first a classic song for sure…….
“Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size, catches thieves just like flies….Look out! Here comes a Spider-Man. Is he strong listen bud, he’s got radioactive blood. Can he swing, on a thread? Take a look overhead, hey there….there goes a Spider-Man. In the chill of night, at the scene of a crime, like a streak of light he arrives just in time…..Spider-Man, Spider-Man, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man; Wealth and fame. He’s ignored. Action is his reward. To him, life is a great big bang up. Whenever there’s a hang up; You’ll find the Spider man”.

Thanks to our Comic Con adventures and numerous posts about the “The New 52” titles from DC Comics, the readers of the PiercingMetal Musings blog don’t need me to tell them how we really enjoy the comic book medium over here. I will even say that I have had a serious appreciation for many of the live action movies from these characters over the last few years. With that being the case I wanted to share the recently released new trailer for the upcoming “Amazing Spider-Man” film by Sony Pictures. At first I thought this would continue the saga that we liked with Spider-Man 1, 2 and 3 but no….this film is a reboot of the franchise and when I heard this I was a little skeptical. Anyway, we can talk more on this in a moment, just watch the trailer first.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: So what do you readers think? I have to admit that this trailer sure does look interesting and the casting appears to be sound based on what we get to see here. As you can tell by the trailer, the villain for the film will be The Lizard and I am sure that comics fans have been wanting him for years. Dr. Connors was in a few of the films already but it was a tease. With the reboot we get the big change and some deeper rationale for his transformation. You know how they change this stuff ever so slightly to make it work as a movie. Since some really good stuff has been done with Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America I am hopeful that the magic continues with Spider-Man because he is one of my very favorite heroes of them all. I’d love to hear what you folks think about this or the film franchise. This one appears to be my second Summer movie as it comes out in July 2012. The first will be “The Avengers” and I’ve already mentioned just how excited I am for that one…….oooh I just got a chill. LOL.
