Summer 2015 movie guide: All the big movies you should watch

Avengers: Age of Ultron is out, which means the summer movie season is officially underway. And while the Marvel flick will likely dominate the box office for weeks to come, there are many other great movies still scheduled to hit theaters over the next few months. Looking at the list, it’s one of the better seasons in a while, featuring films such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Ant-Man, Jurassic World and Fantastic Four, just to name a few.

If you consider yourself part of the sci-fi, horror, action and fantasy crowd, there are dozens of great movies set to come out over the next half-decade, so consider this summer a taste of what’s to come. I know a lot of you folks are eagerly anticipating the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but that won’t be included on this list. Instead, we’ll talk about the films you should check out this month on through the end of August. (Don’t worry, we’ll have another list this fall.)

Mad Max: Fury Road

I can’t get enough of Fury Road’s visuals. It looks like director George Miller is relying heavily on the use of practical effects, and it makes for a very compelling, very convincing post-apocalyptic landscape. Oh, and the action doesn’t look half-bad, either. I was onboard the moment I watched the first trailer, and I’ve gotten even more excited as the release has drawn near. Fury Road is my early favorite for surprise of the year; the trailer above should show you why.

Release: May 15

Actors: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron

Director: George Miller

Does the pressure to conform stunt our creativity? Do big companies curb the growth of medical breakthroughs? Perhaps I’m reading into Tomorrowland’s premise a little too much, but the new action flick seems to explore these themes. On the surface, it looks like good, fun entertainment, and features a great cast led by beloved director Brad Bird. This will be Disney’s second live-action film in a month, followed by two animated films later this year.

Release: May 22

Actors: George Clooney, Britt Robertson

Director: Brad Bird

It didn’t need a remake, nor did it need some sort of far-fetched spiritual successor. But, like it or not, Poltergeist is getting a contemporary re-imagining, and it looks… . If you didn’t know this was a remake, you’d think, Ok, sure, this doesn’t look like an awful horror movie. But that’s the thing: it’s relying on our nostalgia for the original, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Release: May 22

Actors: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt

Director: Gil Kenan

San Andreas

A movie about an earthquake that completely devastates California—and the world. There’s something oddly fascinating about disaster movies, and San Andreas looks like it completely satisfies our morbid curiosity for human extinction. That, and we like to see The Rock’s abnormally large muscles conquer the odds. Only he can descend from the sky and single-handedly save the human race.

Release: May 29:

Actors: The Rock, The Rock’s muscles, Carla Gugino

Director: Brad Peyton

Jurassic World

I’m of two minds; on one hand, I’m happy to see the Jurassic Park franchise finally return to the big screen. It’s been a long, winding, difficult journey, and finally a new movie about dinosaurs in captivity is here. Second, nothing will ever, ever, EVER beat the first film. That one was a perfect balance of humor, adventure, and horror, and it holds a special place in my heart. The odds are against Jurassic World, what with Chris Pratt’s crew of raptors, and the genetically modified mutant Indominus Rex. But, I mean, dinosaurs, am I right?

Release: June 12

Actors: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard

Director: Colin Trevorrow

Inside Out

It’s been a few years since the last Pixar movie, so it’s a welcome return for the beloved studio. Pixar can pretty much take any subject and make it entertaining, and the premise of Inside Out looks like the most endearing yet. It’ll be difficult to top films like Toy Story and Up, but this one is primed to be Pixar’s new darling. And, hey, if this doesn’t do it for you, there’s always Pixar’s other movie, The Good Dinosaur, that’s set to come out later this fall.

Release: June 19

Actors: Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader

Director: Pete Docter, Ronaldo Del Carmen

Terminator Genisys

The first two Terminator movies were basically perfect. The ones that followed, not so much, which means we have some major reservations about Genisys. But after a series of some truly awesome trailers, including one that revealed a major twist, this one actually does look pretty decent (decent being the keyword). I don’t think we’ll ever reach the heights of Terminator 2, but, if anything, Genisys looks like good, mindless fun.

Release: July 1

Actors: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney

Director: Alan Taylor


I know we’re all pumped for Inside Out, but let’s all take a moment to recognize how wonderfully adorable the Minions movie looks. I was skeptical they could make an entire movie dedicated to the little yellow cheese puffs, but the trailers have more than proved there’s ample material to work with. And even if there wasn’t, there’s no denying the charm and humor these guys exude. You know you can’t resist.

Release: July 10

Actors: Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton

Director: Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin

Would you live forever at the expense of another person’s life? That’s the question being asked by this mysterious sci-fi thriller. It has a stellar cast and a very creative director, so this could wind up being the sleeper of the summer. And Reynolds is in need of some box office love.

Release: July 10

Actors: Ryan Reynolds, Matthew Goode, Ben Kingsley

Director: Tarsem Singh

Ah, yes, Ant-Man. I have very mixed feelings about seeing this tiny hero on the big screen, and honestly think it doesn’t stand a chance next to a movie like Avengers: Age of Ultron. But it’s so weird and quirky that it just might work. This one hinges quite a bit on Paul Rudd’s star power, so I’m very curious to see what the response is like when it hits theaters.

Release: July 17

Actors: Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly

Director: Peyton Reed

Despite my better judgement, I’m including Pixels on the list. We all know Adam Sandler movies are about as funny as ripping a band-aid off a hairy leg, but the general premise of Pixels has us very excited. And the visual effects look absolutely bonkers. It might be a good idea to just put on your best pair of noise-canceling headphones and simply enjoy the visual beauty of what Pixels has to offer.

Release: July 24

Actors: Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan

Director: Chris Columbus

Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation

Mission Impossible is essentially comprised of Tom Cruise running really fast and doing insane stunts, and judging by the most recent trailer, we’ll see plenty of that—and then some. MI continues to get better as the movies go on, and Rogue Nation looks like it’ll be the best one yet.

Release: July 31

Actors: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Ferguson

Director: Christopher McQuarrie

Fantastic Four

This couldn’t be farther from the Fantastic Four films that came out (and were quickly forgotten) in the  mid-2000s. Josh Trank, who directed Chronicle, is bringing a much darker tone to the Fantastic Four world, so fans should anticipate a very emotional ride when the film hits.

Release: August 7

Actors: Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell

Director: Josh Trank

The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Henry Cavill will take a break as Superman to lend his talents to The Man From U.N.C.L.E., a slick new spy thriller based on the 1960s TV show. Directed by Guy Ritchie, it has all the characteristics of an instant cult classic, including beautiful visuals, spot on humor and explosive action. And, come on, has there been a bad Guy Ritchie movie? Don’t answer that.

Release: August 14

Actors: Henry Cavill, Alicia Vikander, Armie Hammer

Director: Guy Ritchie

Hitman: Agent 47

The first Hitman movie wasn’t amazing, but it wasn’t horrible, either. You have to give some credit to Timothy Olyphant for turning in a decent performance as the bald killer. Agent 47 looks a lot like the first film, except now we have a different cast and a new director.

Release: August 21

Actors: Rupert Friend, Zachary Quinto

Director: Aleksander Bach

There are many more movies set to come out this summer, such as Pitch Perfect 2, Spy, Entourage, Ted 2, Trainwreck, Straight Outta Compton, and on and on and on. It’s going to be a busy and exciting few months, so start making plans now. Things are about to get real crazy.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
