Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Unlike Ant-Man this is definitely a Marvel movie that I am completely pumped and excited to see. In this sequel to Avengers, all of our favorite heroes are back and ready to take on the malevolent and sentient robotic mastermind Ultron. It appears as if it’s your basic boy builds robot, robot becomes sentient, robot wants to rule the world and destroy all superheroes sort of movie, plus Iron Man and the Hulk fight. In this second trailer to Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, it’s everything you loved about the first movie plus, did I mention, Iron Man and the Hulk fight…hard.
However, as impressive and badass as this fight sequence looks like it’s going to be, the most impressive thing by far to me is the look of the Hulk himself. The CGI on the first film that brought the character to life was pretty flawless but somehow they were able to vastly improve it here. The Hulk here is real. He is a living, breathing, being. He is no special effect. I have not been this excited about a digital character since the first time real life dinosaurs graced the silver screen in the original Jurassic Park. Starring Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Samuel L. Jackson, James Spader and countless other people, the one FRAME from this trailer that tells me without a doubt that this movie is going to be amazing is a single shot of the Hulk sharing a look with the Black Widow. The camera lingers on this face and you would swear he was alive. The film opens May 29, 2015 and it can not come soon enough plus did I mention, Iron Man and the Hulk fight.
Framed: Movie Trailers
I could spoon feed you the same old mushy meal that is your standard movie trailer review. I could go into depth and detail describing tidbits that you could simply see for yourself by watching it countless times in heavy rotation on YouTube until you’ve cooked your noodle and seared every nugget of footage into your corneas…but that’s not what FRAMED is. A trailer is a tease, a glimpse, a snapshot of what the movie is and what it could be and FRAMED is exactly that. It’s about finding that one single shot, one moment, one individual FRAME that lingers with you and propels you to zip over to the nearest multiplex with Mike n’ Ikes and a large diet soda in tow and form a line a year in advance of the film’s release.
