|Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|
It appears that August has arrived with every last minute summer movie release including the kitchen sink! But viewer beware, just because Meryl Streep (The Giver) is in it doesn’t mean it’s a good film. August has a bad reputation for being the dumping ground for movies that just don’t fit anywhere (“summer blockbuster release, award season release? I just don’t know. Hey! Let release it in August!”). This makes me wonder, why is Guardians of the Galaxy being released in August? The word around town is that this could be the best Marvel picture of them all. Is August becoming the new December?
Into the Storm is directed by Steven Quale and written by John Swetnam (Step Up: All In). In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot. Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Matt Walsh, Nathan Kress, Arlen Escarpeta and more star in the film.
Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder (William Fichtner) and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Clash of the Titans) and written by Josh Appelbaum & Andre Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol).
Deepsea Challenge 3D is directed by John Bruno, Ray Quint and Andrew Wight, with the later co-writing the documentary with John Garvin. The film follows the dramatic story of James Cameron’s odyssey as he undertakes an expedition to the deepest part of the ocean. Much like his endeavors on film, this was a breakthrough event as Cameron became the first person to travel solo to this part of the planet with a little help from National Geographic, Rolex and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. This is a journey of historic proportion and risk. The film will mesmerize viewers of all ages with the thrill of true discovery and the allure of the unknown, of new life forms, and of vistas never before captured on camera — all right here on good old planet Earth.
