Fast & Furious 6

This month, the   The movie provides its audience with the standard array of edge-of-your-seat action and snappy one-liners. The chase scenes pertain to their usual rearrangement of the laws of physics, inviting us into a world where cars can bring down planes with ropes, and gravity can be defied if you are Vin Diesel.Read more...

The Muppets live on!

Published 19th Mar 2012

The Muppets live on!


We’re only just into March, and already a number of fantastic sequels have graced our screens such as Underworld: Awakening, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.


The new, revamped Muppets movie has only just been released in cinemas, and it is already set for another sequel!  The revamp has already gained a staggering $158m at the Global Box Office, and has just spent its third week in the upper levels of the UK Box Office. Not only that, but the movie, which brings the Muppets back to our screens after a long-awaited twelve years, has also just received an award at the Oscars for Best Song. It is no doubt a success!


The new sequel, however, will not be written by James Segel – who has been said by many to be the man who brought the “Muppets back to the limelight” – though he hasn’t ruled out starring in it! Director James Bobin will instead be accompanied by Nicholas Stoller, who acted as a co-writer for the recent release. There is no news of the plot outline as of yet, but I’m certain that it’s going to contain just as much music, laughter and endless optimism as the last! This time, however, I don’t think the Muppets need to regain their fame!


The world of sequels is already looking to be promising for 2012. With follow-ups such as: Men in Black 3 3D; Ice Age: Continental Drift; The Dark Knight Rises and American Pie: Reunion, I’m more than excited. Bring it on!
