Looks like they put together quite the cast for the live action Sonic the Hedgehog movie. With luck it will hit the big screen in November.
If you missed this 2010 film, now might be the time to go see it or add it to your personal collection. He will be missed! I had to include the piece on him by Looper as well, it is a great tribute.
Mamoru Hosoda’s latest film, Mirai will be in theaters for a limited engagement beginning November 29th courtesy of GKIDS. They have just released another trailer for it, and I wanted to share it here. If the creators name sounds familiar but you’re not sure why, some of his previous works included The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Wolf Children, and Summer Wars.
The new Captain Marvel trailer is absolutely amazing, so I had to share it here. This woman is subtle like a brick wall, and the story brings us back to the beginning. I can’t wait for this one, it will get us focused for the next decade of films from the MCU!
The Avengers were amazing, and since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox we got to see it a week earlier than expected so it wouldn’t cut into Deadpool 2’s box office. They will obviously be pounding on the 4th Wall again, and I am particularly looking forward to how the actress will personify Domino.
Perfume started life as an electronica oriented art-rock band back when they lived in Shibuya, and they have evolved wonderfully in the past decade. They have a tasty new tune to share, and although the versions available for posting online are short, they illustrate the power the full version brings to the table.
Mugenmirai, in English Flash, is the theme song of CHIHAYAFURU, a movie about the card game that is at the core of so many Asian games, and of the spirit of competition it brings. It can look a little confusing to western eyes at first, until you look at the cards and realize they are not the standard 52 card deck. Each card is actually a fragment of a poem; if you can see the poem hidden within the hand you have been dealt, you only have to remove all the cards that are not part of it from your hand before your opponent does the same with theirs. If you rethink anything, if you hesitate, if you even take a breath before acting, you have lost; only the swiftest and smartest have a chance at winning this game.
And don’t think this is a team sport. The huge crowd bent down on the gymnasium floor may be broken into two groups, each wearing their school colors, but the similarity ends there. You start out going up against members of the opposing school, but when you have thinned them out you play against your classmates, until a single person is victorious. There is no team in this sport, only a winner and a few thousand losers.
The second track is a visual variation of that same song, and since I went that far, throwing in a trailer for the movie seemed only fair. The songs were posted on February 14th, soundtrack will be released on March 14th, and the movie itself comes out on Saturday March 17th (if I am reading the information correctly).
