Taken 2 Movie Trailer

Jul 2012

Sweet new trailer from the sequel to the Luc Besson written action thriller, Taken. Looks like the friends and family of the many bad guys Liam killed in the original are looking for some revenge of their own. Great to see Liam Neeson and the original supporting cast back in some promising action.

Total Recall – Reboot Trailer

Latest trailer for the Total Recall reboot, starring Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale. Much of the dialogue seems to mirror the original, which may not go down well with some fans. Time will tell but enjoy the trailer in the meantime!

The Bourne Legacy – Movie Trailer

Jun 2012

The latest trailer from the upcoming installment in the Bourne series, The Bourne Legacy. Unlike previous installments, Jason Bourne will not be the primary hero, as that distinction will be reserved for character Aaron Cross (played by Jeremy Renner, AKA Hawkeye in the latest Avengers movie).

Fortunately they didn’t simply insert a new actor to play Bourne, and looks to maintain all previous major characters and actors of the previous movies. More to come from FavoriteHero.com!

Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol Trailer

Jul 2011

The first look at the new Mission: Impossible 4 movie, though interestingly enough they aren’t exactly calling it that, instead opting to call this the “Ghost Protocol.”  I will warn you that there may be some spoilers, as they always tend to throw in too much information than they need to in these trailers nowadays.

IP Man – Watch it!

IP Man

 

For those that haven’t had the opportunity, I highly recommend you take a chance on IP Man.  It’s the perfect blend of kung fu action, strong characters, and engaging story telling.  Plus it’s a nice break from the over-CG’d movie landscape of the Thor’s and Green Lanterns of the world.

What else would you expect from a biopic of the real life mentor of Bruce Lee?  Catch it now on Netflix streaming or at Amazon.com.

Superman Reboot: Artists Rendition of Henry Cavill as Man of Steel

Henry Cavill as Superman - Man of Steel

By now I’m sure most have heard about the Superman Reboot that’s in the works with Zach Snyder (director of Watchmen) and Chris Nolan (director of the highly successful Batman movies).

There has also been confirmation that the role of Superman has been cast in  favor of Henry Cavill (known from his roles on the Showtime series The Tudors).

The image above is just an artist rendition of what Mr. Cavill would potentially look like in the red and blue.  You’ll notice that he bares a striking resemblance the Christopher Reeves Superman (in particular his hair).

What he will actually look like we won’t know until filming begins, but make sure to stay tuned to FavoriteHero.com for all the Superman updates!

Iron Man 2 – Faux Promotional Websites

Apr 2010

In an effort to create more buzz for the upcoming launch of Iron Man 2, Paramount Studios has released a number of faux promotional websites that are directly linked to the movie.  Starting with Stark Expo 2010, which appears to be a fictional technology expo featuring the upcoming technologies compliments of Tony Stark (aka Iron Man).

The second site is Accutech, which appears to be a subsidiary of Stark Industries and specializes in the technology that makes Iron Man possible.

Here’s the sad part… These sites actually look legitimate and are probably better designed than the real companies that they are designed to imitate!

Big Apple Comicon 2009

Oct 2009

Wow, what a great weekend.  Filled with movie stars, famous artists, upcoming game previews and anything else you could want (assuming you have a single nerd bone in your body).

Stars ranging from Billy Dee Williams to Thomas Jayne were in attendance giving photo ops and autographs, while in the artists alley, you can get autographs of prints or even custom Comic covers or artwork drawn on the spot for you.

We have a number of picks to give a little taste of the Big Apple Comicon ’09 after the jump!

Peace Walker

Oct 2009

Wow.  Its been more than a year since the phenominal MGS4 seemingly closed out the Metal Gear saga.  After a ride that was as amazing to watch as it was to experience, everyone knew they would try to keep the series alive, but havent quite figured out how after that.  Well this trailer that premiered at TGS09 is to try and fill out the gaps between Big boss and Solid Snake.  Note, playing MGS3 and Portable Ops would make it much more exciting, but even the passive MGS fan will be excited to see why Big Boss turned out the way he did.

     Just to fill out a little history from memory, just to help understand the trailer.  Big Boss (Snake) was forced to kill his mentor/hero the Boss to help prevent some bad bad stuff (being vague on purpose except for what they show in the trailer, these are the events of MGS3).  Being disillusioned with fighting for a country (the US) Snake takes the time to to save the world and create a group of what is called nomads in the trailer, which is comprised of soldiers that have been abandoned or mistreated by thier respective countries.  Snake being the only person known for his combat prowess and being an overall hero leads these men into lives untethered by their home countries (MGS portable ops).   This pretty much brings you to the events of the trailer with Snake and his band, fighting for what they believe in, not what their countries tell them too, which if anyone knows MGS history leads to the very first game and its story of Outer Haven. 

Ive left out a lot of the story and the good details, but all the hardcore fans will know all this and more, and will just enjoy the trailer.
