Dunkirk Movie Preview

Dunkirk is an upcoming war film, written and co-produced by director Christopher Nolan. Set during World War II, it focuses on the true story of the 1940 Dunkirk evacuation. Nolan wrote the story with the intention of telling it from 3 perspectives, land, sea, and air. The producers made efforts to create suspense through the details, as the script contains little dialogue. Dunkirk is set for a July 21st 2017 release.

The main premise of this film focuses on Operation Dynamo and the efforts to evacuate the Allied soldiers from Britain, Belgium, Canada and France that were surrounded by the German Army on the beaches of Dunkirk in the early stages of WWII.

The film will star: Fionn Whitehead, Tom Hardy, Harry Styles, Tom Glynn-Carney, Jack Lowden, James D’Arcy, Barry Keoghan, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance.

In my observation this movie appears to draw certain parallels to an older film called The Battle Of Britain. Not only in the fact that the events of the Dunkirk evacuation almost immediately precede the Battle Of Britain, but also that the two films seem to share a similar vibe as well. Perhaps Director Christopher Nolan drew inspiration from The Battle Of Britain, and used it as a point of reference for Dunkirk.

Transformers: The Last Knight(Preview)

 

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview the upcoming movie Transformers: The Last Knight.

 

This is the 5th live-action Transformers movie as well as the final film in the Transformers franchise.

 

The cast of Transformers: The Last Knight consists of Optimus Prime(Autobot Leader), Bumblebee(Autobot Scout), Hound(Autobot Commando/Field Medic), Drift(Autobot Tactician/Samurai), Megatron(Decepticon Leader) and Grimlock(Dinobot Leader).

 

Also, this movie introduces us to both Optimus Prime’s Creators and HotRod(Bumblebee’s French accented brother-in-arms) as well as reintroduces us to Barricade(Decepticon Scout) from the 1st Transformers movie.
In conclusion, I personally believe this movie will bring a climatic finish to the Transformers film franchise as well as teach us how important it is to value everyone’s existence and not just your own.

Justice League(2017)(Preview)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview the upcoming 2017 movie Justice League.

This movie takes place months after the events of the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

where Bruce Wayne(Batman) and Diana Prince(Wonder Woman) form a team of superpowered Meta-Humans

comprised of themselves plus Arthur Curry(Aquaman), Barry Allen(Flash) and Victor Stone(Cyborg)

to defend the Earth from the Apokoliptian General Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons as the Justice League.

General Steppenwolf seeks three MotherBoxes residing on Earth. One of which is currently merged with Cyborg,

both making up his physical form as well as giving him his cybernetic powers. MotherBoxes are powerful cubed Minicomputers So intelligent that they’re almost alive.

General Steppenwolf comes from the planet Apokolips, which is a dictatorial world brimming with FirePits

that is ruled by General Steppenwolf’s nephew known as the omnipotent Darkseid. In conclusion, this movie I believe will be as big a hit as the 2012 film: Marvel’s The Avengers and is due to IMAX theatres on November 17, 2017.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a TV show about ponies, magic and friendship. There are 6 ponies named Applejack, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Twilight Sparkle.

The 6 friends personify the 6 Elements of Harmony: Honesty, Kindness, Laughter, Loyalty, Generosity and Magic. They use the Elements periodically throughout the show. One time they had to use the Elements was when Princess Celestia asked them to use the Elements to defeat Discord the spirit of chaos. Their friendship was initially broken up, but Twilight Sparkle repaired the friendship and they used the 6 Elements of Harmony to turn Discord to stone. In Season 2, they attended the wedding of Twilight Sparkle’s brother, Shining Armor and Princess Cadence. Twilight discovered that the bride was a fake and set out to find the real Princess Cadance trapped in a cave. They managed to escape from the cave and stop the wedding. Shining Armor and Princess Cadance used the power of their love to defeat Queen Chrysalis, the changeling and her minions. The wedding was planned by the 6 friends and went off without any other problems. In Season 5, they discovered a map that led them to a quaint little village where ponies with the same cutie mark lived under the rule of their leader, Starlight Glimmer. They helped the villagers regain their cutie marks and stopped Starlight Glimmer from escaping with their cutie marks.
