Coming Soon this Spring

Coming Soon this Spring

“It is spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want–oh, you don’t know quite what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” is a quote by Mark Twain and oh! Spring brings many splendored things.

Each year the vernal equinox signals the breath of new life in the Northern Hemisphere.  During the spring equinox, the amount of daylight and darkness nealy equal each other in length.

The vernal equinox has been celebrated for centuries.  In the ancient city of May in Mexico and the ruin of Chichen Itza the people gather in large crowds to watch as the shadows fall upon the Pyramid of Kukulkan casting a large snake-like creature that crawls up the steps.

The end of March has already brought the feeling of spring to the big screen, such as A Wrinkle in Time and the anticipated Isle of Dogs.  Spring ensures to come in roaring like a lion and usher in some great cinema.

The New Mutants

Action | Horror| Sci-Fi

If the superhero genre is going to survive, it has to learn how to get along with others, and Josh Boone’s The New Mutants aims to be an object lesson for its fellow superpowered cinematic outings. Loosely based on a classic Marvel Comics story by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, this flick will be loosely connected (just how loosely remains to be seen) to the larger X-Men film franchise. However, it’ll be set in the claustrophobic environment of a mental institution and Boone has said he wants it to feel like a horror movie, first and foremost. If he and his collaborators can create that kind of hybrid beast and make it roar, it could be a watershed moment in the history of superhero cinema.
