The summer is dwindling down which means that the summer of blockbusters is almost over and it’s time to look forward to the fall. I recently watched three films and I have a small little review of all three which are Sinister 2, American Ultra, and Hitman: Agent 47. The films were released today so choose wisely and enjoy!

sinister 2Sinister 2– Back in 2012, we were introduced to an evil demon known as Bughuul who gets children to commit unthinkable acts to their parents. In the first film Ethan Hawk was an author who was researching all of the weird crimes for a book that he was writing with the help of Sheriff Deputy So & So (James Ransone). As we all know, Ethan Hawke’s character dies and now the ex- deputy So & So is back and this time he is obsessed with solving the mystery. While on the journey, he runs into a mother (Shannyn Sossamon) and her twin sons who are living in an old house that has been marked for death. I truly believe that the first Sinister was just brilliant and spooky while this one just tries to spook you with the cheap scares and some gruesome kill scenes. The film isn’t terrible, but it definitely wasn’t better than the first despite the fact we get to see Bughuul a little bit more. The film also stars Lea Coco, Robert Daniel Sloan, Dartanian Sloan, Lucas Jade Zumann, and Nicholas King as Bughuul. I am giving the film a C- for a final grade

american ultraAmerican Ultra– There was quite some hype heading into this film as some were saying that if Pineapple Express (a personal favorite of mine) and all The Bourne Films had a baby this would be their child. The film stars Lex Luthor himself Jesse Eisenberg as a stoner who has no idea that he is a Government secret weapon until he is activated by his creator while at work. Along with his girlfriend Phoebe (Kristen Stewart), they’ll go one heck of an adventure as they try to avoid ultimate extinction. I have to be honest with all of you and say that I really enjoyed watching this film even though I had no expectations heading into it. It’s fun and it’s a different kind of way to handle secret agent films to make it more hip to the younger crowd. The film also stars Topher Grace, Connie Britton, Walton Goggins, John Leguizamo, and Bill Pullman to name a few. I am going to give this film an A- for a final grade.

agent 47Hitman: Agent 47– I honestly didn’t know what in the world was wrong with the Original Hitman movie that starred Timothy Olyphant, but then again I am not in charge of these things. Well, Agent 47 returns to the big screen in Hitman: Agent 47, but the role is played by Rupert Friend (Pride & Prejudice) who is a man on a mission. This time he is looking for a woman by the name of Katia (Hannah Ware) who is just as special as him and can lead him directly to his target, but he has to get her before Syndicate agent John Smith (Zachary Quinto) does. If you’re looking for a very high body count then you’ll want to check this out, but some of the interactions are a little awkward at times during the film. Look for a full review coming next week in Ass Whoopin Wednesday. The film also stars Jürgen Prochnow, Ciaran Hinds, Angelababy, and Dan Bakkedahl to name a few. If you want to know what grade I gave this film, then you’ll have to wait for the full review coming on Wednesday.

We are doing a collection of trailers in one post because we are approaching the time that all of the summer blockbusters and so on will release their trailers for all to see. 2015 is already shaping up to be one of the greatest years in a long time for films with so many antcipated releases coming up like The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road, Ant Man and so many more. I want to share all of the latest trailers with you guys to get you amped up for the big year. So, let’s get started.

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron: There have been a lot of trailers that have been released so far that have revealed the newest member of the team in Vision as well as the debut of the clip of Iron Man vs The Hulk at the MTV Movie Awards last night. The trailer I just watched titled Let’s Finish This just shows you every character in the Avengers during certain situations and further shows you some of the bad ass scenes you can expect. Below that I also have the Iron Man vs Hulk video:

Ant-Man: This is the other Marvel film that is going to be released this year besides the Avengers film that introduces us to the guy who was supposed to be a part of the Avengers in Ant-Man. The trailer introduces us to Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his protege Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) who becomes Ant-Man and we also get introduced to who his villain is going to be. The trailer has a col scene at the end you should check out that I think is funny.

Terminator: Genisys: To get off of the superhero train and on to one of the greatest franchises to star one of the greatest action heroes of the 80’s in Arnold Schwarzenegger in the new film Terminator: Genisys which some fans feel takes the franchise backwards. Well, the new trailer throws another monkey wrench that I never saw coming as John Connor is trying to kill his mom now. Check it out for yourself:

Mad Max: Fury Road: I am so pumped to see this film in May because it looks so epic and series mastermind George Miller is at the helm which means it’s going to be great. We get to see a little bit more of the guy with the mask and the trailer explains a little more. Check it out below:

San Andreas: The Rock is already having a superstar year as Furious 7 has already grossed more than 800 million worldwide, but he has another film coming out this year. I have to admit that I didn’t really have an interest in seeing San Andreas, the latest disaster flick, but after seeing this trailer with the beautiful Carla Gugino, I might just go and see it.

Sinister 2: The first film was fantastic as I deemed it my surprise hit the year it was released. The idea of the first film which is continued into the sequel was absolutely brillaint and creepy. Well, the Bughuul was creepy as hell and he’s back and more visible his time around. Check out the trailer below as the film is slated for release in August.

Spectre: We treated a couple weeks ago to a teaser trailer from the upcoming Bond film Spectre which promises to be great, but I feel the series has taken a dark turn much like Skyfall did, but I’m not complaining. Check out the teaser trailer below:

Creed: I like the direction they decided to take with the Rocky series as we are going to receive the spin off Creed which finds Rocky training Apollo Creed’s grandson Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan). Check out a photo Sylvester Stallone posted below:
