Check out 7-Minute Preview of STAR WARS REBELS

via press release

Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures.   It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world.  As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people.  The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.

Scheduled to premiere this October as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

New Movies This Week: HERCULES, LUCY

New Movies This Week: HERCULES, LUCY

It's the week of one word titled new movies, where Dwayne Johnson and Scarlett Johansson lead the way into theaters with new movies.  Check out the quick list and my preview take on the movies. (For what it's worth!)

Opening This Week - July 25

Hercules, starring Dwayne Johnson
Hercules

Rated: PG-13 98 min

Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.

Stars: Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane, Joseph Fiennes

My thoughts: At first I was all about Johnson playing the legendary strong man, but then I caught some previews that were hack full of 3D gimmick scenes of things coming at the viewer. For some reason, I thought that crap went away a long time ago.

Because of that, I've put this on the back burner until it becomes a rental, a pay channel focus or it lands on FX of TNT or some such channel that doubles the length of the movie with loud commercials.

LUCY starring Scarlett Johansson
Lucy

Rated: R 90 min

A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

Director: Luc Besson
Stars:    Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Min-sik Choi, Amr Waked

My thoughts: Director Luc Besson has had some great popcorn hits under his belt, like the Taken and Transporter film franchises. He is also credited with creating the CW TV series, Nikita.  So there's that.

Scarlett Johansson... well, if you think about it, I'm guessing there will be a strong male demographic heading out to see this film. She rocks it as The Black Widow in the MCU so why wouldn't she here?

If I weren't going to Comic-Con, this would be the flick I'd be seeing in theaters this week.
