Denzel Washington, Tom Cruise And Dwayne Johnson Are The Action Heroes Of Summer
“Denzel Washington, Tom Cruise And Dwayne Johnson Are The Action Heroes Of Summer” : And we have another round of summer movie preview content! I searched the superhero movies on Monday and the horror / suspense movies yesterday. Today, let’s look at the six unofficial “action man” films. There are a surprising number of star-driven action vehicles this season, with the exception that one is a scenario where the character (as opposed to the actor) is the star. Nonetheless, there will be a constant supply of testosterone on the screen that can make the public party like it did in 1994. Without further ado, here are the action films directed by men of the summer of 2018 in order to release date.
Solo: A Star Wars Story (May 25):
Okay, so Han Solo is the draw, not Alden Ehrenreich. But this attempted steal by Ron Howard seems to want to play in Michael Mann’s sandbox. Let’s see if the much debated Star Wars Story movie goes to more terrifying police action in the Star Wars universe or if it tries to shape the past of Han Solo into a superhero storyline. Of course, this is likely to be the lowest-grossing movie in the Disney Star Wars series, and reimaging probably sent that budget to the $ 200 million standard brand. But if it’s a good movie, you do not have to make a coin to keep the franchise relatively healthy. Even more so with the behind-the-scenes melodrama, it’s more important that Solo is good than being ridiculously lucrative.
Sicario: Day of the Soldado (June 29):
Sony chose Lionsgate’s Black Label Media, probably because Lionsgate saw that a sequel to Sicario without Emily Blunt (or a corresponding female lead) would make the drug war thriller much more conventional. As good as it sounds, and it seems pretty intense, Josh Brolin and Benicio del Toro are not newcomers, and this is yet another case of a female genre led by having a sequel without that female lead. It did not work out for The Huntsman: Winter’s War and trading Emily Blunt as Del Toro’s tortured hero having to protect Isabela Moner is a hell of a lot more conventional. Could (a bit) come out as an antidote to the May / June fantasy films? Of course, but you have to justify yourself seriously.
Skyscraper (July 13):
By default, this release of Universal / Comcast Corp. will probably be the most expensive film of the year, not based on anything, live action or any other way. However, this Dwayne Johnson vehicle has a solid tone, essentially Die Hard finds the Hell in Towering as Johnson’s hero must save his family and stop the bad guys while the whole building is burning. Written and directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber, this is one of those who hope to do well in America, but even better in China, and if he clicks, you can add the director of Central Intelligence to the list of trusted Rock directors. I hope Brad Peyton is not jealous. And with Johnson and Jason Statham ready to make the Fast / Furious spin-off, I hope there’s a friendly bet between Johnson’s Skyscraper and Statham’s The Meg.
The Equalizer 2 (July 20):
Equalizer 2 is not just Denzel Washington’s first franchise; it’s his first sequel, period. Of course, Washington has done its share of remakes (Manchurian Candidate, Taking of Pelham 1, 2 , 3, etc.), but this is the first time for the relatively free IP star movie. And yes, this is based on an old TV show from CBS, but the core remains the inherent appeal of Denzel Washington: Righteous Avenger Man. The first film grossed $ 100 million worldwide and $ 200 million across the world with a budget of $ 50 million, and then Sony hopes to repeat the performance. We’re getting a trailer for the sequel to Antoine Fuqua tomorrow, and I’m happy that Melissa Leo is back in the group.
Mission: Fallout Impossible (July 27):
After “winning” the Super Bowl with the best trailer of the year, Paramount / Viacom Inc. should be happier with A Quiet Place, knowing they have at least one mega-hit up their sleeves. This will be the sixth film Mission: Impossible and only the first sequel to having a previous director returning to the herd. For one thing, I loved that this franchise was a director’s sandbox. But one cannot argue successfully and Rogue Nation, by Christopher McQuarrie, was a superb entry into a remarkably consistent franchise. These films have grown in popularity and it stands to reason that one will end up with the $ 700 million worldwide ceiling. Will Fallout (presented in 3D this time) be the chosen one? Anyway, I’d be shocked if this was not one of the best studio releases of the summer, if not the year. In Ethan Hunt, we trust.
Mile 22 (August 3rd):
“Denzel Washington, Tom Cruise And Dwayne Johnson Are Action Heroes Of Summer” : While Mark Wahlberg‘s star power has cooled off since 2014, he has not made that kind of hard action movie since “Two Guns” in 2013. Ditto Peter Berg, who spent a lot of time documenting American historical tragedies to decrease (financial) returns. This original action movie about an American intelligence agent trying to steal a police officer with confidential information from the country, starring Wahlberg, Lauren Cohan, Ronda Rousey, Iko Uwais and John Malkovich, has a chance to be the last film of the genre. season. And with Meg going PG-13 and The Predator changed to September, this A24 release could become the adult movie of choice, to the extent that such a thing exists anymore. However, you can have a difficult time with Skyscraper, Equalizer 2 and M: I6 still in theaters, with summer coming to an end.
