Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Plot

Volume 2 heading to a cinema near you! Chris Pratt and his band of saviors take on the deepest darkest creatures the universe has to spit out once more. Groot is his usual comedic self as you’ll come to see in the trailer below.

Us Americans are damn lucky! We get to catch it on the big screens a whole week before the rest of the world!

Fun fact: Volume 2 was already announced before the first one even hit the screens! They announced it a week before the first movie’s release at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2014.

The Lovers

The Dinner

The Dinner

Plot

Based on the novel by Herman Kock, The Dinner is a drama/thriller depicting one intricate family, a terrible act by the children, and how far their parents will go to protect them.

The cast list contains a few extraordinarily fantastic actors including Richard Gere, Laura Linney, and Steve Coogan, who you may know as Littlefinger/Lord Petyr Baelish from Game of Thrones. He’s conniving here, but not where near as much as his GoT times.

Its world premiere occurred at the Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year in February and is now set for a USA release on the 5th of May.

3 Generations

3 Generations

Plot

Capitalizing on the current LBGT trend the western cultures are experiencing, 3 Generations depicts the lives of a Grandmother, her daughter, and her daughter’s daughter, or so it seems.

The drama/comedy takes a look at what it’s like to transition from male to female, or at least what the directors believe it’s like.

Many comments on the trailer are a bit peeved at the fact they couldn’t cast a real trans as the character in question, furthering the sense the movie isn’t truly authentic.
