I’ve been looking forward to this movie based on the Oscar Grant shooting since I heard it was in production. I hope this continues the rise of Michael B. Jordan (The Wire, Friday Night Lights, Chronicle)
Holeee shit! 10-year old Sean is foaming at the mouth.
I think this is the best trailer yet.
This is my most anticipated movie of 2013.
Not Iron Man 3.
Not Star Trek Into Darkness.
Not The Wolverine.
I really hope it doesn’t disappoint.
This better be good. X-Men Origins: Wolverine had so much potential but was such a mess. I know Hugh Jackman really wants to make a good Wolverine film so I have faith this will be a little better.

Julie Delpy’s follow-up to 2 Days in Paris starring Chris Rock as her new boyfriend with her family coming to visit. Rock’s acting isn’t what I’d call goo but I trust Delpy.
I’ve been a fan of director Rian Johnson since his debut film, Brick. Although I didn’t love his follow-up, The Brothers Bloom, as much, I still thought it was a pretty good film.
In his latest flick, Looper, Johnson reunites with his Brick star Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Gordon-Levitt plays Joe, a hitman for a mob in the future. The mob sends people back to the past for Joe to kill until the person sent back is his future self (Bruce WIllis). Hijinks ensue.
- I’m not a fan of Captain America’s (Chris Evans) new suit. Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) new suit isn’t much better.
- Apparently Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) only knows one move (the neck flip).
- I hope the movie makes Black Widow and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) seem useful
- Robert Downey, Jr. gets all the best lines. He seems like a great fit for a Joss Whedon movie.
- Best part of the trailer:
Captain America: ”Big man in a suit of armor. Take that away, what are you?”
Iron Man: “Uh. Genius. Billionaire. Playboy. Philanthropist.”
- Nine Inch Nails’ “We’re In This Together.” Interesting yet a little on the nose.
- It goes without saying, I can’t wait for this movie.
