Dunkirk was released July 21, 2017. It is directed by Christopher Nolan, and got a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. I have heard a lot of positive reactions to this movie, but have not yet seen it (But I really want to). Dunkirk is based on a true story about World War II. This article contains NO spoilers, so you don't have to worry if you haven't seen the movie yet. <strong>Before we get into the article, I would like to thank all of my 29 followers! Thank you for reading and upvoting my content, I really appreciate it!!</strong> Now, lets get to these fun facts about Dunkirk!!!</p> <p>1.&nbsp;More than 50 boats were used for the movie, which is the most that has ever been put on film.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmVQTCxohH3MsUJwHMpnSvq4yHqdSfwjT5RtSgMNis6Kin/image.png</p> <p>2. Director Christopher Nolan said that casting Harry Styles (who plays Alex) was like casting Heath Ledger as The Joker in The Dark Knight (which Nolan directed) because everyone underestimated both of them.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmZwZL2i81g99LwsZuUTPQgnRNH8ySpbUwg8UL934E4pFL/image.png</p> <p>3. Dunkirk is Nolan's first film to be based off of historical events.</p> <p>4. Nolan decided to have young/unknown actors play the soldiers because the Dunkirk evacuation had inexperienced and young soldiers--according to first hand accounts Nolan read.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmRJc2kCKw2EvykpRW1evkjroo1W4vzp9JH2vLQe1kKmbS/image.png</p> <p>5. Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas (his wife), and a friend went from England to Dunkirk on a boat--just like how the people did during the Dunkirk evacuation (the ride took 19 hours).</p> <p>6. Dunkirk (the title) is split between 3 different colors--dark blue, orange, and sky blue to show the plot of sea, land, and air.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmPy6RqEKPe99MrEeseGfkYTD3Q6AAhRtMzuq7wLx43YRS/image.png</p> <p>7. Christopher Nolan flew in the Spitfire--the plane in the film--to help him film the aerial scene correctly and make it more authentic.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmTgH4R1ZPYiqZ3gc1Ey5DmMKxSrVugKggJsoc7QNVXxrD/image.png</p> <p>8. Nolan wrote Dunkirk, which makes it the 3rd movie he has written himself.</p> <p>9. Dunkirk is Nolan's shortest movie, at 106 minutes.</p> <p>10. Nolan made Dunkirk because of when he sailed to Dunkirk, France in 1992 with his now wife Emma Thomas.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmUBjfCwmPG4w676QmQ8akRCQc2BPMoF62vDUMocc8ccGG/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!&nbsp;</strong></em></p> <p><strong>*Comment below your thoughts on Dunkirk!!*</strong></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Kong: Skull Island was extremely well done, for many reasons. This movie came out in March, and is adding to a whole universe of monsters-from what we saw in the post credits scene- (Godzilla, Mothra, etc.) Also, if you are thinking that this movie has anything to do with the Universal Studios theme park ride, that is incorrect-the ride is nothing like the movie. Kong: Skull Island is completely different than the other Kong movies. This film does not have a love story between Kong and Ann, the characters did not come to film a movie,</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNMpGBEqbjVPEcygirSeqBCxCueLczMzjNpAHXhUiN6hS/image.png</p> <p>and this Kong is much, much, much larger. I enjoyed this movie for the visually stunning effects, the action, and the stoty. If you have not seen Kong: Skull Island yet, I highly recommend it (If action is too much for you or a giant Kong will scare you, then you probably shouldn't watch it). Let's look at all the aspects of Kong: Skull Island (2017) that made it SO good!!! [SPOILER ALERT-DO NOT read this article if you haven't watched Kong: Skull Island yet----just go watch it and then come back to read it!!]</p> <h1>1. The Plot</h1> <p>Finally a Kong movie that has nothing to do with the others! I am happy that this movie was not a remake, but more of a reboot. Kong doesn't try to take Brie Larson's character, Mason, which I was over the moon about. I do think that she should have a gun or some kind of weapon, even if she is just a photographer. In this telling of King Kong, we get more into how sad Kong's life is. The Skullcrawlers are the real creature you should be weary of, not Kong--who is the protector of the island.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmbbvWtBX522WJ2eJJU4JdWmJwqadT6nQXMFwuZ4uLWjwr/image.png</p> <p>We find out that the Skullcrawlers killed Kong's family, which humanizes him. A character who is not humanized is Samuel L. Jackson's Preston Packard. I had a feeling he was evil when he had a green light on him in the telephone booth--in the beginning of the movie(green means someone is evil/the villain). Packard was crazy and tried to kill Kong, when Kong was just protecting his home. I thought Packard was a great villain, and I liked watching his transition to evil.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmehAYCvn6TGNYuoxbt9cF5pd6Mgt9sHSSbZtFtsFdyD2B/image.png</p> <p>I liked how the story of this Kong movie was about Bill Randa (played by John Goodman) trying to prove there are monsters in the world--by going to the island. It was refreshing from the retold story of trying to make a movie and saving Ann. Overall, I thought the story was very good, and we are probably going to see these characters again in the monster universe--called MonsterVerse--that is being created. [Godzilla: King Of Monsters--with Stranger Things Millie Bobby Brown(who plays Eleven)--will be released March 22, 2019]</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmePHoKq95uUdv54UU3JF6ey91zqnyHCtxoNMnnFBMCw9b/image.png</p> <h1>2. The Action/Visual Effects</h1> <p>The action in this film was amazing, and entertaining. I love how huge Kong is, because it brings something different to this movie. The scene that stood out for me was the Skull crawlers attacking the characters.&nbsp;</p> <p>https://youtu.be/BwXIc1RpkE0</p> <p>It was visually stunning--because of the smoke and camera shots. The camera going to each of the characters' faces before the skull crawler came was an amazing choice because of the added suspense. I loved the part in that scene where Tom Hiddleston's character James Conrad slices the enemies--in green smoke--and the first person perspective in his mask. This skull crawler attack scene was just so amazing to watch, and is one of my favorite action sequences in any movie this year. Now, let's not forget about the star of the show, Kong. His action sequences were also breathtaking--my favorite being the first one (with the helicopters)--because we didn't know how strong/powerful he is.&nbsp;</p> <p>https://youtu.be/f2YM4nw68z8</p> <p>Also, the showdown between the huge Skull crawler and Kong was a very satisfying match to watch.&nbsp;</p> <p>https://youtu.be/cmZXJsklxSA</p> <p>Kong really showed that he is King, and is a force to be reckoned with. In all, this film had great action sequences-and editing- that I enjoyed a lot.</p> <h1>3. Skull Island</h1> <p>I think that Skull Island is such a cool place. It is filled with all sorts of majestic (and scary) creatures, plus it has Kong. There are even natives that live there-including a man who has been there since his plane crashed. I really like the way Skull Island was presented in this movie, and that it does refer to some things in the past Kong movies--such as the wall between the natives and Kong.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQ6iUwR85MDkyBnFetGvuvqBRjYJib2JJpeCCnJhjbEeV/image.png</p> <p>This movie just proves again that Skull Island is not a place to be reckoned with. The only complaint I have with this film is that I think the characters in this movie should be more developed. All of them are pretty forgetful, and really don't have much of a personality. I feel like the characters should have been explored more, instead of just seeing them fight off the beasts in Skull Island. Hopefully they come back in the future MonsterVerse films, and we see them have more of a personality. Kong: Skull Island has me very excited for a future Kong vs. Godzilla, and the other monster movies.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmTKsdiW1znaZCtPfCSNYDVcvVXe3PMJjReHTgYA7Y3ZJK/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!

Passengers was released December 14, 2016, and got a 31% on Rotten Tomatoes. It made $303.1 million at the Box Office (Budget is $110 million). This film stars 2 of the hottest actors right now, Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. I liked this movie, and I thought it wasn't terrible. The performances and the look of the ship were amazing. Let's take a look at some fun facts about Passengers (2016)!</p> <p>1. Under the title of the movie (on the poster) it has symbols for morse code, which read out S.O.S.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQme7eVwp1QjyNLKzeGeA1wMFh1L6ptJT2rpvSTrAAesetJ/image.png</p> <p>2. Aurora (played by Jennifer Lawrence) is a reference to Aurora in Sleeping Beauty.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmVHkXpW55AbrKHAfLeSrUw5cueT6uyw6MUXunZC1zoM6F/image.png</p> <p>3. Both Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt play a Marvel character (Lawrence-Mystique in X-Men: First Class/Days Of Future Past/Apocalypse, Pratt-Star Lord in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 1&amp;2/Avengers: Infinity War).</p> <p>4. Emma Clarke, who does the voice of the Starship Avalon in this film, is also one of the "Mind the gap" voices on London Underground.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQ69fF9VWVozqAf7sPpT5asSoUHynTt3WEVuiyA5JXnaB/image.png</p> <p>5. Reshoots were done in October 2016 (very late in production) to fix certain story elements.</p> <p>6. Michael Sheen (who plays Arthur the robot bartender) has also played Castor-a nightclub owner- (who is also not human) in TRON: Legacy (2010).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmeXmPq8qWKmMfKqzFQz3HRwbaozRbrcCx3Y1tX9obZozi/image.png</p> <p>7. Jim Preston (played by Chris Pratt) plays a holographic dance battle on the ship. Peter Quill/Star-Lord (played by Chris Pratt) uses a dance battle to distract Ronan in Guardians Of The Galaxy (2014).</p> <p>8. Jim is woken up to repair the ship in this movie, similar to Apollo 13 where Jim (name of the actual astronaut) had to fix the ship.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmYX8nA8eqJhB3owXmLMRpNUhWnEaQHtyYSrJG9Pj3TVCV/image.png</p> <p>9. Jennifer Lawrence (who plays Aurora) is an Oscar Winner, and Laurence Fishburne (who plays Gus) and Andy Garcia (Captain Norris) have Oscar nominations.</p> <p>10. A decoration in Jim's room has the logo of Village Roadshow Pictures.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWqangcmEKgqksLRodAtGAv7hJ4oDbr3MCmr57ipeXrBU/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>*I love hearing from you, so comment below!!!!*</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Ghostbusters came out July 11, 2016, and is a reboot of Ghostbusters (1984). Ghostbusters (2016) got a 73% on Rotten Tomatoes, and made $229.1 million at the Box Office (with a $144 million budget). This film stars an all-female ghostbusting team (Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon). I liked this film, but nothing beats the original. Let's take a look at some fun facts about Ghostbusters (2016)!!</p> <p>1. The hotel that is used in this movie is the same hotel used in the TV show, American Horror Story.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmY1QLaWniLZJ3jK9SL3LqaD12zzHVhMe7FgYVaPbhKP7y/image.png</p> <p>2. The character of Patty Tolan (played by Leslie Jones) was originally written for Melissa McCarthy. Director Paul Feig changed this because McCarthy has played a similar role in Bridesmaids (2011).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWAQVgQgV8mtb7ZRZhKVusPpykPRzB1vk8zCEVmzzTnc6/image.png</p> <p>3. In the teaser poster, the number on Holtzmann's (played by Kate McKinnon) proton pack is 2206, referring to the number of Dana Barrett's apartment in Ghostbusters (1984).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmeJf4Rccyu6fAnMcJER2xGXjEM6t6EXtLBmjgGKoLcdG6/image.png</p> <p>4. The sound of the early version of the proton pack failing (it gets crushed by the subway) is the same sound as the failed hyperdrive of the Millennium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back.</p> <p>5. Emma Stone turned down a lead role (even though she liked the script) because she did not want to get involved in another series after The Amazing Spider-Man 1&amp;2.</p> <p>6. Director Paul Feig said that the first cut of the movie was 4 hours and 15 minutes.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmScyMqgBoixNyqzKu1vR9SSG5bf3SPYEig6gbG8P6eyUU/image.png</p> <p>7. Ghostbusters (2016) is the most diskliked trailer on YouTube.</p> <p>8. During the scene where Abby becomes possessed by the ghost, the metal tube that Patty has is actually an exterior piece on the backside of the Delorean in Back To The Future.</p> <p>9. Kevin (played by Chris Hemsworth) says "Ghostbusters, what do you want!" on the answering machine, like Janine in Ghostbusters (1984).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWaktfHHpFVjbvcBrvJXvSPWL8sHPa83m53YML5CFWZhY/image.png</p> <p>10. Near the end of the movie, a containment unit says "D. Barret" on its monitor, referring to Dana Barrett (played by Sigourney Weaver) in Ghostbusters (1984).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmVPb3CNbCaEffkmxnfpheeNqRBo3YGrN7UZexpvwovW1M/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

The sequel to Independence Day, Independence Day: Resurgence, was released June 20, 2016. It got a 31% on Rotten Tomatoes, and made $389.7 million at the Box Office (Independence Day (1996) got a 60% and made $817.4 million). Jeff Goldblum (who plays David Levinson) returns in this movie. This film was not very good, but I liked the action and aliens in it. An Independence Day 3 is confirmed, and will have the same director as the first 2 films, Roland Emmerich. Let's take a look at some fun facts about Independence Day: Resurgence!!</p> <p>1. Liam Hemsworth (who plays Jake Morrison) said that the making of the movie was stopped for 4 days because the production ran out of money.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmep32dAQyawWt4sPEseC6ingKz7ic6oEipTrcBPuFrpsm/image.png</p> <p>2. The sequel got $90 million more than the first film (which had a $75 million budget/highest grossing film of 1996).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmediAHcsZWutUV7dt6EcA1oqKQ2vTFyCCYAJPqWq4d3Zb/image.png</p> <p>3. Fox would not give Will Smith a $50 million salary for 2 sequels to reprise his role as Captain Steven Hiller.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNk3e2crR1sHGVUjVbwZE6nNFtmTqqN7bEkxtQ6kwrpem/image.png</p> <p>4. Writer Dean Devlin had originally written a script (paid for by Fox) for a sequel after the success of the first movie. Devlin did not finish the script (he thought it wasn't as good as the first movie), and decided to just give the studio its money back. Director Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin decided to write another script 15 years later because they felt they had a story in mind.</p> <p>5. During the shoot in New Mexico, Jeff Goldblum (who plays David Levinson) would have jam sessions to kill the time between set-ups.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmZKw24CHujL92Pd3qrMAb8mNEYkgfUdoQqqNBia1PCBau/image.png</p> <p>6. The size of the new mothership is as big as Jupiter's Moon Europa (3,000 miles or 4,830 kilometers in width). In the movie, David says that the ship is so big that "it has its own gravity."</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQJG4mtwiurfDhACscPkX2A1pHqPTXJkVZNEKiEjq8aCQ/image.png</p> <p>7. Independence Day: Resurgence was originally 1 of 2 sequels to Independence Day (1996). They were both going to be called Independence Day Forever Part 1 and Independence Day Forever Part 2.</p> <p>8. Director Roland Emmerich said that they chose the word resurgence in the title because it has to do with a post-world that has come together to fight a common enemy--which is a resurgence.</p> <p>9. Jeff Goldblum has worked with both Liam and Chris Hemsworth (Liam-Independence Day: Resurgence/Chris-Thor: Ragnarok).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmdiGinAsCXGfY5oS3C64F3h2Gt4kJkL7ESATRJVtHfMpn/image.png</p> <p>10. The teaser posters showed the aliens attacking landmarks all over the world (Big Ben-England, Eiffel Tower-France, Esplanade Theaters-Singapore, Statue of Liberty-United States). According to the movie, David Levinson said that "They like to get the landmarks."</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWegDpXCGY1xWq8jHozSrXYzJxuhJ5maAVfHNSRSoVefy/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Hidden Figures was released December 25, 2016, and got a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. I really enjoyed this movie, and the story it told. This film was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, and it made $230 million at the Box Office. The cast and performances were amazing, and I think it was one of the best films of the year. Let's take a look at some fun facts about Hidden Figures!</p> <p>1. Director Theodore Melfi was considered for directing Spider-Man: Homecoming, but chose to direct Hidden Figures instead.</p> <p>2. The problem with the restrooms was not actually Katherine Johnson's (played by Taraji P. Henson) problem, but Mary Jackson's (played by Janelle Monae) in real life.&nbsp;</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmXn7BrsQebqCMc4UQZhc2yMBWTnjvyzwqaYg1kYG2BCZf/image.png</p> <p>3. The characters Vivian Mitchell (played by Kirsten Dunst) and Paul Stafford (played by Jim Parsons) were made up to represent the attitudes of some of the co-workers.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWGiuJs1uFPsQVcHV7EgigNLzqghJt9Z8JsdRJSiRvvFd/image.png</p> <p>4. Taraji P. Henson met with the real Katherine Johnson (98 years old) to talk about her life (Johnson is the only one alive out of the 3 main characters). Henson discovered that Johnson graduated high school at 14 years old and college at 18 years old.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmPfn3AupCPyixYW6Mpkgpfvi5rrKhtDuFD8nmHmumTzGK/image.png</p> <p>5. In the Mercury Mission Control set, a lot of the control console props were originally created for the Mission Control Room in Apollo 13 (1995). These control console props were also altered to be used in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmaFAxKePrueddf1fCFX3YrmPmkKomKbmJR4SJud38H3r8/image.png</p> <p>6. John Glenn (played by Glen Powell) was actually 41 years old during the launch, compared to Powell who was 27 years old during filming.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmYHR4G1B7bphanqCN2LMH7kDrLJqad1kx9d4sF1FQfQNZ/image.png</p> <p>7. In real life, Katherine Johnson's children were actually teenagers when she got married to Jim Johnson.</p> <p>8. Hidden Figures is Kirsten Dunst's (who plays Vivian) highest grossing film in the United States besides the Spider-Man movies (where she plays Mary Jane Watson).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmcUoppw12yVtC2J8VhJnhAGB6GZKYrGzaVtSUPcoLG2dL/image.png</p> <p>9. This film marks the 3rd time Octavia Spencer (who plays Dorothy Vaughn) to star alongside of a Spider-Man actress (The Help-Bryce Dallas Howard (Gwen Stacey in Spider-Man 3)/Emma Stone (Gwen Stacey in The Amazing Spider-Man 1&amp;2), Spider-Man (2002)-Kirsten Dunst (Mary Jane Watson). &nbsp;Octavia Spencer had a small cameo in Spider-Man (2002).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmdvPF9KWpbCnVjoJ1WKnfsow9cNJeLG9F8UjxvR7PGrQ3/image.png</p> <p>10. The set that was used as Dorothy Vaughn's house is actually a historic house where Martin Luther King and Ralph Abernathy met in real life.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmd1B4S4a2uqxb9SuRqh3FKj57BySBc5nZoBoiCVK43nFa/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Ant-Man was released June 29, 2015, and got an 81% on Rotten Tomatoes. It made $519 million at the box office. This film stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man. I thought Rudd did a great job in the movie, and I really liked the plot. We have also seen Ant-Man in Captain America: Civil War, and he will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War (May 4, 2018). The sequel to Ant-Man, Ant-Man And The Wasp is set to release June 6, 2018 (directed again by Peyton Reed). Let's take a look at some fun facts about Ant-Man (2015)!!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmeK3bABzTrwSUXxcqoLdyaPq3ghpfcuQUSAeHYgrdqVCo/image.png</p> <p>1.&nbsp;The Falcon was included in the movie after Paul Rudd and Adam McKay went to see Captain America: Winter Soldier. They loved the character so much that they wanted him in Ant-Man. Kevin Feige (President of Marvel Studios) said it would make perfect sense because The Falcon was living at the new Avengers compound.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmX4LhhjEwtKSq4EVfd1uUVJ7y5PatB6HFqi8b4pPcqmwt/image.png</p> <p>2. Originally, Ant-Man was going to be focused on Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas/the original Ant-Man). This was changed to Scott Lang because Hank developed a personlaity where he abused his girlfriend (this is not family friendly-so he was changed to Scott's mentor).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQm4Y17qRiL9irFuQSrcMBbWUfCiNWdxevHSEKMakMf9x/image.png</p> <p>3. Paul Rudd bought a huge ant farm to see how they interact with each other. He kept it even after shooting for the movie was done.</p> <p>4. Michael Douglas said that Paul Rudd's Ant-Man costume had to be altered because of the muscles Rudd gained during training for his role.</p> <p>5. The laser sounds Yellowjacket's suit fires is the same sound as the main gun on an AT-AT in Star Wars (Disney owns both Star Wars and Marvel).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmaT2sm4QzooruB1KHg32zjvzSaN4TWHnZBLCTS16HRLtp/image.png</p> <p>6. Edgar Wright was originally going to direct the movie, but dropped out over creative differences with Disney. A big part of the script he wrote is in the movie. Evangeline Lily (who plays Hope Pym/The Wasp) had a much smaller role in Edgar Wright's script, but she got a more significant role in the final version-Evangeline Lily even gave some ideas and input.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmZEirjBGxwXS8B12EhqUwWHn23UGvB7n6vv1DdRkF7kTG/image.png</p> <p>7. To show how small Ant-Man is, the aspect ratio was changed from 2.35:1 (which is most Marvel films' ratio) to 1.85:1.</p> <p>8. The last scene where Luis tells Scott about a tip, the girl talking to The Falcon references Spider-Man--who made his debut in Captain America: Civil War.</p> <p>9. Paul Rudd is the 2nd cast member from the TV show Parks And Recreation to be a lead role in the MCU (the first being Chris Pratt as Star-Lord).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmZVQZqQafPYJ8p7GNe2NaTybCCNVu6Ae3LB4Wpwm9zgXr/image.png</p> <p>10. During shooting, the clapperboards said "Bigfoot" (instead of Ant-Man) to hide what movie was really being filmed.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWaZZzJxZxi3xVxP9FMZy5zC3Ra28bEfEzTy1G1sAAkQg/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Suicide Squad was released after Batman v. Superman. It wasn't the best movie, and it got a 25% on Rotten Tomatoes. This group of bad guys made $745 million, and will be getting a sequel in 2019. The best part of this movie was Harley Quinn because her character is likeable and funny. Suicide Squad had so much potential to be an amazing movie. If Wonder Woman hadn't been a huge success, DC would not be looking so good right now. Let's take a look at some fun facts about Suicide Squad!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmeXVQX9HyJntvstoCobqKu8zdsUgYVQQwKKVDJBMN83hz/image.png</p> <p>1. Jared Leto (who plays the Joker) made his laugh by trying out different types in Toronto and New York City to see which made people the most uncomfortable.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmcLTTZpGYcVdwH9bkkJp3Guo5GbyaV8dbvaGqVmuFmdxP/image.png</p> <p>2. Most of the crew and cast got the tattoo "SKWAD" to represent the film(Will Smith and Margot Robbie even tattooed some themselves).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmcseyjvtgScPJWf6FpbEk4KtwYsazfTQDiVaJMr2P4ha9/image.png</p> <p>3. Will Smith (who plays Deadshot) trained with Army rangers and Navy SEALs to practice shooting a Glock 9mm handgun and an AR-15 rifle (he learned fast with the AR-15 at a long distance).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmext7kiMMGByhMxsMVB8PaxfLpwLiJhcjeTfWvp4Wq4SG/image.png</p> <p>4. Margot Robbie (who plays Harley Quinn) will be returning in the movie Gotham City Sirens (directed by Suicide Squad's David Ayer/Margot Robbie is a producer for this movie). This movie will focus on the woman of the DC universe (Catwoman and Posion Ivy are expected to be in this film).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmZN3mrPhxF3znCMDRaRfFusfWK5gy5dsmWb1dqxXH7f6E/image.png</p> <p>5. Jared Leto and Margot Robbie did not rehearse their scenes before shooting because director David Ayer and Margot Robbie thought it added to the unpredictability and madness of the Joker and Harley Quinn.</p> <p>6. Jared Leto stayed in character as the Joker even when he wasn't filming his scenes. He sent Joker presents to the cast-Margot Robbie, a rat; Will Smith, bullets; &nbsp;Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (who plays Killer Croc), a soiled Playboy magazine.</p> <p>7. Jay Hernandez (who plays El Diablo) shaved his eyebrows since his character doesn't have any hair on his body (he saved 30 minutes everyday in makeup from shaving his eyebrows).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmVcST2Pf7Z9ubckfF4hCTe82Mvsw9yFM27Vb96tMseDsQ/image.png</p> <p>8. The teaser trailer for Suicide Squad got more views than both Batman v. Superman trailers within 3 weeks of being released.</p> <p>9. Cara Delevingne was cast as Enchantress by David Ayer before there was a script. To prepare for her role, he asked her to walk naked in the forest under a full moon in the mud (she did-at her sister's mansion).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmcZF1x6s9Xovo6nr7Azmy2HBfkEH7AHdbuxeaeoKWWz4s/image.png</p> <p>10. Suicide Squad is the 4th live-action superhero movie to win an Academy Award (others are Batman-1989/The Dark Knight-2008/Spider-Man 2-2004).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmaYE68TDWQosFgZNzmHY2bB15v48a6Yc44Suv5p1qJfS3/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Finding Dory was released June 17, 2016, and got a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes. It is the sequel to Finding Nemo, which came out in 2003. I thought that Finding Dory had a great plot, and was very funny. I love ELeen DeGeneres as Dory. Also, baby Dory was the most adorable fish ever. Finding Dory grossed $1 billion at the box office, a little bit more than Finding Nemo ($940 million). Pixar just keeps shelling out amazing animated tales, and I am hoping that a 3rd Finding Nemo movie is released. Let's take a look at some awesome fun facts about Finding Dory!!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQYBNMpG9QbErJJWdEH9zjZjJwja8QZpcp48wryxTHsG3/image.png</p> <p>1. Hank was originally going to have 8 tentacles, but animators could only fit 7 on his body. They had to rewrite his backstory about why he only has 7 tentacles.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmUjYqTtaTrdRLki1J9xPftPduESLANcTeaS2WshrckdhU/image.png</p> <p>2. The Pizza Planet truck can be seen when Marlin, Dory, and Nemo meet the Giant Squid, and is seen passing by the truck headed to Cleveland. A1 and 13 can be seen on the tags on the sea lions Fluke and Rudder (reference to the classroom A113 at Cal Arts that most Pixar Animators went to).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmR5iNCJo3PExLN7dSGFsjU2Fs2EaetvNvDw3yUnKdosZc/image.png</p> <p>3. A photo of Darla can be seen during Dory's first visit to the quarantine facility.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmSR157pZ4z2PL7r9X19ERujSFy4FTEdyKQLmrf6rT3P35/image.png</p> <p>4. This is the 3rd Pixar movie to have a female lead (the other 2 are Brave and Inside Out).</p> <p>5. Even though this movie is titled Finding Dory and they are actually searching for Dory's parents, the title refers to Dory finding herself.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmXNkdiQiEkfEkWUakHTRipxwfWZ3JegNBZH8iNUiuYqUQ/image.png</p> <p>6. By the Open Ocean Exhibit in the Marine Life Institute, there are models of Squirt and Crush from Finding Nemo.</p> <p>7. Originally the setting was going to be an aquatic park, but it was changed to a Marine Life Institute after the crew of Pixar watched the disputable documentary Blackfish.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmRE49gphsFvrEmsE5ASvkGP8Xc4z9jk5bQh1UjsuHtpeS/image.png</p> <p>8. The voice at the Marine Institute is in fact Sigourney Weaver. This is her 2nd role in a Pixar movie, her first being the voice of the main computer of the ship Axiom in WALL-E.</p> <p>9. Finding Dory was originally going to be released November 25, 2015, but was changed because The Good Dinosaur was pushed back to this date.</p> <p>10. Riley (from Inside Out) can be seen when Dory is thrown into Destiny's tank (Dory hits the window).

Deadpool is an R-rated superhero film, which was a great choice. It was a huge success, and prompted other R-rated superhero films such as Logan and Venom. Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds, who does an amazing performance. Deadpool 2 is slated for release on June 1, 2018. I am very excited for the sequel and what is next for Wade. Let's take a look at some awesome fun facts about the Deadpool movie!!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmaqZdCRA7XaL9awkRUKxX4KNT4uSXD5nYd8KkQzeTLcCE/image.png</p> <p>1. Ryan Reynolds (who plays Deadpool) paid out of his own pocket for writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Rease to be onset everyday for input (20th Century Fox refused to pay them for onset input).</p> <p>2. Dopinder (the taxi driver) was named after a "really cool guy" that Ryan Reynolds knew in Elementary school that died from getting hit by lightning. The character is a tribute to him.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWteZqjRuGKMd27TjRK6q45MD2K93z6fUVwa3iZSJUkUH/image.png</p> <p>3. It took 8 hours for Ryan Reynold's full body makeup to be applied.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmafDhJebLF4SbERYGQkFXScLpsU7Mjx3PyExjNBjRkJcw/image.png</p> <p>4. Ryan Reynolds kept the Deadpool costume after filming (no one objected to him taking it).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmShuz1X6Znxdso76NTWvEfauqiFHMd5fkiQ3WS7GqHyht/image.png</p> <p>5. Deadpool was shot in 48 days, and has a lower budget than any X-men, Avengers, Iron Man, and Captain America films (budget-$58 million).</p> <p>6. Cast members could improvise scenes, and Ryan Reynolds helped revise the script with the writers.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmT7NrFQCfTbJbTMwuEJdBRzCQU96uWakAZ5y7pFGJoMJj/image.png</p> <p>7. The hilarious opening credits was originally a placeholder, but director Tim Miller decided to keep it in.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmPWgMV2XVTK98iy1JauoTqWoKwZKaw2G6EZfd5cZpSirm/image.png</p> <p>8. To prepare for his role as Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds hired a swords master for training.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmdYE7yYd7C1j7UA7AtLTdm7FmEF62ju1e6Mo1ZRhpPphX/image.png</p> <p>9. Deadpool is the highest grossing R-rated movie worldwide ($775 million), beating The Matrix Reloaded ($742 million). It is the 2nd highest grossing R-rated movie in the United States ($363 million) behind The Passion Of The Christ ($370 million).</p> <p>10. During the final battle scene, the helicarrier that Deadpool and Ajax fight on is a destroyed helicarrier from Captain America: The Winter Soldier.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmXS8k57LuvequUhtjwyLGw7t2q5rX9f15z4rmjVFmhWPZ/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Cars came out in 2006, and was a big hit. It got $462.2 million at the Box Office, and a 74% on Rotten Tomatoes. Cars 3 was released June 16, 2017. Cars 3 may not have been very successful, but everyone still loves the first Cars film. Let's take a look at some fun facts about Cars 1!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNfwtksBZvhkNCqkyeqqU5nZSg8R6y59fBipgL47EgsZ9/image.png</p> <p>1.&nbsp;Cars is the last Pixar movie to be released on VHS, and the first Pixar movie to be released on Blu-ray (it is also the last movie to be produced by Pixar before it was bought by Disney).</p> <p>2. Occasionally, Lightning McQueen's tongue sticks out when he is thinking hard about something. This is something that director John Lasseter does that the animators included into the film.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmZvHB1QkaQhJBzap9HJZS1Uv6tqjdCcR13WJiWZbuLq44/image.png</p> <p>3. The Pizza Planet truck (from Toy Story) can be seen next to the Elvis car in the crowd scene.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmUQmd7tbm36aQJRoqVzjswo9TZBJHaor8cks6VULorsJZ/image.png</p> <p>4. Lightning McQueen was originally going to be number 57 (the year director John Lasseter was born). It was changed to 95 to represent the year Toy Story was released (1995).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmc3JJto4e3TiMUc4i48EhbXWQiYbUNSeNHzfm13qSGA7d/image.png</p> <p>5. Cars was originally going to be called Route 66, but was changed to not suggest that it was related to the TV show Route 66.</p> <p>6. The human inspiration for Lightning McQueen was Michael Jordan.</p> <p>7. Mater's car design is a 1955 Chevrolet Stepside tow truck.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmefPLYiSLkWGRE8cvJuA9ySWW4quV76LUuRWkTgCKZfSd/image.png</p> <p>8. At Radiator Springs, the hill looks like the top of a radiator with a cap.</p> <p>9. Tow Mater's license plate is A-113, which represents the number of the animation classroom at Cal Arts.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmUSSijxju8g3jQdAyJmrDN5HiSSW9Nrm8WMM4iKHhUEHn/image.png</p> <p>10.

Sing was released December 21, 2016, and got a 73% on Rotten Tomatoes. This movie is from Illumination, who brought you Despicable Me/Minions/The Secret Life Of Pets. I really enjoyed this movie, and the music. Sing has an all-star cast, with amazing talent (Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, Taron Egerton, Seth MacFarlane, Jennifer Hudson, etc.). I think that this movie was way better than Illumination's The Secret Life Of Pets. Sing had a heart and a soul, and a very good plot. Let's take a look at some fun facts about Sing that will wow you!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmY3BEFV52W9vwJNvXvQdqzKZFhNzY1eU7jLWDzG7xjy29/image.png</p> <p>1. Buster Moon (played by Matthew McConaughey) slips into a secret passage, which is a hole in the wall-covered by a poster. This is similar to how Andy Dufresne (played by Tim Robbins) escapes prison in The Shawshank Redemption (1994).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmaVpHk66j8ndpkf5afTb4MvavEJfR3jTsus1Q5GruJkSf/image.png</p> <p>2. The words "Made in China" are printed on the back of Miss Crawly's eye (which pops out on the keyboard).</p> <p>3. Sing is Taron Egerton's (who plays Johnny) first animated movie, and it was a great choice to do because this movie has singing (which he is very good at and loves to do).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmU1TwPEashZvf4FioyZsgpp8ybXddMvtF6nKENbWpFqX5/image.png</p> <p>4. When the theatre becomes flooded with water, Johnny (played by Taron Egerton) saves everyone--he pushes Meena (played by Tori Kelly) into the exit. In Kingsman: The Secret Service, Taron Egerton's character Eggsy saves people when their room becomes flooded with water.</p> <p>5. The mask that Big Daddy wears (Johnny's father) is Snowball (played by Kevin Hart) from The Secret Life Of Pets.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQCXPNC6yWnxqz5gEPPvzURf4iLZ59ugJgkaS9hfkV9pU/image.png</p> <p>6. Sing defeated the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) as being the highest grossing film to not be #1 at the Box Office.</p> <p>7. Mike (played by Seth MacFarlane) is based on Frank Sinatra--Mike even sings Sinatra's song "My Way." (both have a short temper, related to organized crime, and dress the same way).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmR7jYXkCq8Vu3N2aaiTdgeU2cJuNfXAZM7QufFK3tdJ2G/image.png</p> <p>8. When Ash's (played by Scarlett Johansson) guitar gets unplugged, she stomps her foot. In real life, porcupines stomp their foot as a warning if they are scared.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmawumBTVFvJ88EvUB72bcnJT95FM21kj3DyJKCJaqmxzv/image.png</p> <p>9. Director Garth Jennings does the voice of Miss Crawly.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmXZAbJLbQtzQ2X6gJLkjTTeAaRUGr9MMfA8dtzUSLb3bX/image.png</p> <p>10. Sing is Illumination's longest movie at 110 minutes.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNYpUm5NVW6k6s8roXy3h3YFTVzJ3Q6ygW9oYXthZ6FHv/image.png</p> <p>&nbsp;<em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Thor: Raganrok will be released November 3, 2017, and marks the 3rd film of the Thor movies. Filming began in Australia in July, and it was originally going to be released July 28, 2017. From what we have seen in the teaser trailer it looks AMAZING!! I really like the Guardians Of The Galaxy Vibe and how we get to see what Thor AND Hulk have been up to during Captain America: Civil War. This movie is directed by Taika Waititi (who has not directed any Thor movies). Hopefully Thor: Ragnarok lives up to the hype, and really gives Thor the great movie he deserves. Let's discuss everything we know about Thor: Ragnarok and how it will introduce Avengers: Infinity War!! (release date of May 4, 2018).</p> <p><strong>[Suggested]: </strong>Click the video below to watch the Thor: Ragnarok (2017) teaser trailer!!!</p> <p>https://youtu.be/ODqPGttjjOY</p> <h1>~Cast~</h1> <h3>Chris Hemsworth as Thor</h3> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmZmEWeeSqfRxgYt1rtxz9dbP6fgDYCsNY4p85cvrJVL7y/image.png</p> <p><em>Thor seems to be missing his hair and hammer, Mjolnir, since it was destroyed by Hela (in the teaser trailer).</em></p> <h3>Mark Ruffalo as Hulk/Bruce Banner</h3> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmanQ4Q5MHFMABZXySftzzYKPKvnShpXZW5MDwiNtB1fRw/image.png</p> <p><em>We haven't seen Hulk since Avengers: Age Of Ultron (2015), and now all of our questions will be answered.</em></p> <h3>Cate Blanchett as Hela</h3> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmZkV4vkkqA8cQwe5yxXAnvmFRgvxgND8FycNXE5whfMGq/image.png</p> <p><em>She will be the villain in the movie, and is trying to take over/destroy Asgard. Hela is the Goddess of Death.</em></p> <h3>Idris Elba as Heimdall</h3> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmVFFj5Tsqck25ojHteBSn3oaxv94dApJqAQPoEvHegid9/image.png</p> <p><em>Heimdall is returning, he is all-seeing/all-knowing, and guards Bifrost Bridge.</em></p> <h3>Tom Hiddleston as Loki</h3> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmSoPmXPR9BFSVwU5zGDyaA4zg5tWEewQv6xFvo8d5ehqQ/image.png</p> <p><em>Loki is back, and he is such an amazing villain. He seems to be helping Thor in this movie, but you can't really trust him because he is always doing something in the background.</em></p> <h3>Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange</h3> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmReMVjyRgrZWZBEswyBwrTovaM82hjMkq9wSvxNuxLdDr/image.png</p> <p><em>Yup, Doctor Strange will be making an appearance in Thor: Raganrok (Thor made an appearance in Doctor Strange's movie).</em></p> <h3>Jaimie Alexander as Sif</h3> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmVQwfY1LaNvUx7UeWVpFK8JDmtnbWukraxhWSsKkuGb3G/image.png</p> <p><em>She was in the other 2 Thor movies, and could eventually be a love interest of Thor (since he broke up with Natalie Portman's character, Jane).</em></p> <h3>Anthony Hopkins as Odin</h3> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmbLJc8MpTqF17t7oeK2cZ1M3tS3iRBgzWG2NZbbp3Zvk9/image.png</p> <p><em>Loki became Odin in a little trick in Thor: The Dark World.

Valkyrie wants to forget about her Asgardian heritage. She is equal to Thor or even stronger than him.</em></p> <h3>Taika Waititi as Korg</h3> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmRDgZSNqHpfPhSSgtnTvzXPCHDzLB4Ufaer5Kf9jhdrtr/image.png</p> <p><em>The director of the movie is playing Korg, who is a rock-like alien.</em></p> <h1>~Plot~</h1> <p>Ragnarok is a Norse myth, which means that the world will end (the Gods die and humanity only has 2 people left to repopulate the Earth). Mark Ruffalo said that this movie will have some comedy, and Thor/Hulk go across the 9 realms (kind of like a road trip). The major plot is that Thor is imprisoned in the gladiator arena, and must get out to stop Hela from destroying his home, Asgard. I am very excited for this movie because of the plot, and the villain actually sounds badass and awesome.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmacj9PwD7VMfN9FzvKqZkmmg89vSgEUTKQLbieNjxYTat/image.png</p> <p>I really like how Thor is based off of Norse mythology, and how all the characters are warriors--with swords and shields. I mean, battling the Goddess of Death sounds pretty challenging, especially when she breaks an all-powerful hammer (Mjolnir). The teaser trailer looks serious and funny, especially when Thor exclaims that him and Hulk are work friends. I am very anxious to see Hulk, and what he has been through. Also, Doctor Strange is an added bonus to this movie.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmUAMhPZkPxxyuSSq6S2qbEPgmXAkX8JJyQwgg2RA5fj93/image.png</p> <p>Loki is basically one of the best (or literally the best) villain of the MCU, and he always has a trick up his sleeve. He is very cunning, and not loyal (we will talk about that ore in the next section of the article). I like how Thor: Ragnarok has an old school style, like Guardians Of The Galaxy, and I can't wait to see how this movie connects the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).&nbsp;</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmbbKfUz595LkC6SY56Yf2CG7bSgri1pdj2mjUaT9FjUkA/image.png</p> <h1>~Introduction To Avengers: Infinity War~</h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmTtiun3ynph9wicGF9BsNTSNxdpXDgBAfYsVwQsEGhjSQ/image.png</p> <p><strong>[If you DO NOT want to know about the teaser trailer that was released at D23 Expo--not online yet--than this section of the article isn't for you]</strong></p> <p>Infinity War news gets me SO excited!! Apparently, Thor is found by the Guardians Of The Galaxy (in the Milano) floating in space. Mantis wakes him up, and he says "who the hell are you guys?" This could mean that in Thor: Ragnarok, Thor is unsuccessful in saving Asgard and is banished by Hela by getting thrown into space to die. I am not sure because this is just a possible explanation.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmYVXU7yUmoxEwVdYPCcEVU44kRFMzcoTTvq3vi6nCCd58/image.png</p> <p>Loki could be working for Thanos all along, because Loki gives him the Tesseract for his Infinity Gauntlet in the trailer. Loki could be snaking on Thor, or he is playing both sides, or he could even be trying to get inside information to help Thor. Honestly, it's so hard to tell with Loki because he is always changing sides (and doing what is best for himself). In Thor: Ragnarok it seems that Loki is helping Thor defeat Hela, so I'm really not sure if he is aligned with Thanos.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmRSgt6ibC7o9NrhiHaaPYZgGvYAPGkKEMWfHo9aycrFEk/image.png</p> <p>Another thing the trailer revealed, is a destroyed planet while Thor is with the Guardians Of The Galaxy in the Milano. People have speculated it is Asgard (which could have been destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok). All I know is that Thor: Ragnarok definitely has something that relates to Avengers: Infinity War.<strong> [Please note that none of these theories have been confirmed to be true, it is just speculation.]</strong></p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmf92Dv2JhXMSYUwHohJVfaxsvMFQwSusCGcCkPzjDVmVQ/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>*Comment below your thoughts on Thor: Ragnarok!!*</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

War For The Planet Of The Apes was released July 14, and has a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. It is also the 9th feature film of the Planet Of The Apes franchise. I have only seen the first film in the rebooted trilogy, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes (2011). I have heard great things about War For The Planet Of The Apes, so I really want to rewatch the rebooted movies. Matt Reeves directed Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) and War For The Planet Of The Apes (2017) (both got the highest Rotten Tomatoes scores out of the 3 rebooted movies). &nbsp;Don't worry that this is the last movie, because a 4th Planet Of The Apes movies has already been announced! This movie got a $150 million budget. Let's take a look at some fun facts about War For The Planet Of The Apes <strong>[Spoiler-Free]</strong></p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmVhP3NCf9Ry4Mo83npuoTEWsQLKZDW2N2RFoe2iCMYwe7/image.png</p> <p>1. Both Andy Serkis (who plays Caesar) and Woody have been in Star Wars movies. (Serkis plays Snoke and Harrelson plays Beckett in the Han Solo Movie).</p> <p>2. Only Terry Notary (who plays Rocket), Karin Konoval (who plays Maurice), and Andy Serkis (who plays Caesar) have been in all 3 of the rebooted Planet Of The Apes films.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmVrDhw1unbk39obyMCGVTFMKnq2iBsiVZzNznXmHaWUAf/image.png</p> <p>3. Director Matt Reeves said that Alpha/Omega are the group of rebelling humans, which references the bomb the mutants praised in Beneath The Planet Of The Apes (1970).</p> <p>4. Bad Ape was created because Andy Serkis (while he was promoting Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes) was asked if the AIZ-113 drug affected apes not in Caesar's tribe. Co-writer Mark Bomback and Matt Reeves paid attention to this, and introduced Bad Ape into War For The Planet Of The Apes.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmerSuCfNr6BhqyAmVhnMSV8LHVxQwRyKEvyShMrMF2jCE/image.png</p> <p>5. Steve Zahn (who plays Bad Ape) cried after watching War For The Planet Of The Apes for the first time because he was so moved by it.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmdaKurfPtST5V3japeYTgsy5qAWDX3hYvrQsJxJ5MXF7s/image.png</p> <p>6.

There have been 3 major Spider-Mans over the past 15 years. First, Tobey Maguire in 2002, then Andrew Garfield in 2012, and now Tom Holland in 2017 (We first saw him in 2016 in Captain America: Civil War). There have been many debates over who has the best performance. Not everyone is going to agree, but this article is just my opinion. Spider-Man is an amazing superhero, who was created by Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, Tom DeFalco, and Ron Frenz. Everyone loves him, and his amazing universe of villains (such as Venom/Carnage/Green Goblin). Let's take a look at which actor played Spider-Man the best!!</p> <h1>~Tobey Maguire~</h1> https://steemitimages.com/DQmUC96YqKnbQnr71Y8wjMtntFxDWGmpwTcoYw8YzAwDSog/image.png <h2><em>Spider-Man (2002), Spider-Man 2 (2004), Spider-Man 3 (2007)</em></h2 <p>Tobey Maguire was 27 years old in the first Spider-Man movie. I grew up with Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man, and I think he did a good job in the films. Even though the dance in Spider-Man 3 was just terrible and uncomfortable to watch, that was not Maguire's fault. I really liked Peter Parker's relationship with Doc Ock in Spider-Man 2. I thought Maguire did a great job showing how Doc Ock was Parker's mentor, and how conflicted Peter was. I also really liked how nerdy Peter was.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmYAaQbKZFVLSjmSnk3YizFv63v5YhVrLNFhi5ju9KGEXh/image.png</p> <p>Maguire was the first serious role of Spider-Man that actually had a good plot. Maguire really showed how Peter has to always choose between his friends and saving others from bad guys. Tobey Maguire was very old to play the role of Spider-Man. Also, Spider-Man is supposed to be a little funny (which Maguire didn't really show). It got a little old when Peter was always chasing after Mary Jane (even when she was dating his best friend Harry). Maguire did a good job of showing how in love with MJ Peter is, and how he was never brave enough to ask her out.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmf8quhx6dH9LeCVYRygeHjinswguKLyoSEgErHRrBr1zH/image.png</p> <p>I didn't like how Maguire's Spider-Man seemed too mature and not very badass. I don't like how he was portrayed as fearful and serious. I think Spider-Man should be fun and friendly and someone who has some comedy. I also don't like how this Spider-Man has webbing as one of his powers. In the comics (and the other Spider-Man films) Peter designs his webbing. Maguire didn't indicate that he was super smart (except when he designed his suit). Overall, these Spider-Man films were pretty good. I just think that Maguire was missing certain aspects of Peter Parker/Spider-Man.</p> <p><h3><em>Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man: 6.5/10</em></h3></p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmb64bM9B62NTeocUde8Hzf9WTutMu4Y9QTmrscM2hazsj/image.png</p> <h1>~Andrew Garfield~</h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQme2EtWnemzRZJUjbQCTqKzhMyTLfdHyoGaymdUB2ePiQq/image.png</p> <h2><em>The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)</em></h2> <p>Andrew Garfield did a great job of playing Spider-Man. He showed how smart Peter is and how funny Spider-Man is. Garfield's stutter could get annoying, but I think he showed a Peter that was a little closer to the comics. Garfield was 29 when he played Spider-Man in 2012. Again, this is too old to be playing a high school student. Garfield's Spider-Man developed his own webbing and suit. He also solved the formula to regrow Dr. Connors' arm.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmPyBEgqujU5WmqCPqyxEZA2AGkCL8q8vVw1RUv1Mabwhd/image.png</p> <p>I really liked the relationship Garfield depicted between Dr. Connors and Peter. Once again, Peter is conflicted by his mentor/the monster he has become. This version of Peter was able to ask out a new love interest, Gwen Stacey. I thought that their relationship was very cute. It was sad that Peter promised Gwen's father to not date her, especially when Gwen needed Peter the most. I liked Garfield's jokes when he was catching criminals, and this film also showed him taking pictures of Spider-Man.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmfLykGpcn6WrpRuZTc4KMSPynfUFmyJ6Zm3jLUmjZGRMC/image.png</p> <p>The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was a terrible movie as a whole. There were a lot of things wrong with that movie. I still think Garfield was too mature for the role. Peter is supposed to be in high school, still figuring out his life.&nbsp;I really liked seeing Spider-Man battle the Lizard. It was much different than the Green Goblin, which I really didn't want to see again in The Amazing Spider-Man. Overall, Garfield's performance showed a more fun side of Spider-Man, but still isn't exactly what I think the best Spider-Man is.</p> <p><h3><em>Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man: 7/10</em></h3></p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmbuxzCu9YeamvWsHDp5dwAFurkM9485wpsw9G8okKvEEZ/image.png</p> <h1>~Tom Holland~</h1> <h2><em>Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)</em></h2> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmeeesGZXci1aKJ8b6nd1U9V8VdQVLDEpKK4xmf7nnynvJ/image.png</p> <p>Tom Holland was around 19-20 years old (Peter is supposed to be 15 years old) when he filmed Spider-Man: Homecoming. Tom Holland's Spider-Man is motivated to join the Avengers, which is something we have never seen. Holland did a great job of playing a teen in high school. The video that Peter filmed was so funny and seemed like an authentic reaction for a teenage guy. This Spider-Man was not very serious and honestly not very mature. He was not too scared to ask out Liz to Homecoming. Also, this Spider-Man created his own webbing (and his own not very high tech suit).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmbs5dMk4RDBBymcnnByWnpBHqapwD5mPxU2Q1jWTu1wuu/image.png</p> <p>I really liked Holland as Spider-Man because he depicted the right age, and he is very similar to the Spider-Man in the comics. He is nerdy and just wants everyone in his city to be safe. Holland really showed just how much of a kid Spider-Man truly is. This film did not show anything with J. Jonah Jameson, but it could be coming in the next 2 Spider-Man: Homecoming movies. I wish we saw more of how Peter is very smart (like in The Amazing Spider-Man).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmRhZx14hjQPWDZuycKmmWVi1vskCdcCry6fB5U2vRFbqs/image.png</p> <p>Holland showed again how conflicted Peter is (since he chased a bad guy instead of going to Decathlon and Homecoming). Holland even used a high pitched voice to show how young Peter is. Holland showed how much Peter grew throughout Spider-Man: Homecoming. I thought Holland did a very great job playing Spider-Man, and I think that he definitely fits the role.</p> <p><h3><em>Tom Holland as Spider-Man: 9.5/10</em></h3></p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmRUGbW4kCK18hbTivvQAAZmuMVmc4UiD7TWxKoUqnfona/image.png</p> <h1>~Conclusion~</h1> <p><h3>Tom Holland IS the Best Spider-Man</h3></p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWALo4HaHfaVu1t13yHcPCfhLDhLoDbMBft1aiF6rHJq2/image.png</p> <p>Tom Holland really depicts how young Peter is, and how everything is so cool to him. I liked how Peter is motivated by becoming an Avenger, and how Holland shows that Peter is not serious and mature.</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

The Harry Potter franchise ended with this movie on July 11, 2011. This movie got a 96% on Rotten Tomatoes--the highest score of any of the Harry Potter films. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 is the world's 8th highest grossing movie of all time ($1.342 billion). This movie ended the Harry Potter series in a satisfying way. Let's take a look at some fun facts about Harry Potter 7 part 2!!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmVfdx1pp9mBNrzGFLhsFi8BBFoMYHau4rYBvs27omrjkx/image.png</p> <p>1. Tom Felton (who plays Draco Malfoy) said that the hug Ralph Fiennes (who plays Voldemort) gave him was improvised. Felton's reaction of just standing there was genuine.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmdSXj5iofJ72144HZtdJygnSA9fqit2b8W9T8GtR54rPG/image.png</p> <p>2. For the Gringotts scene, Helena Bonham Carter (who plays Bellatrix) asked Emma Watson (who plays Hermione) to act out the scene so Helena Bonham Carter would know how to act as Hermione (the scene is Helena Bonham Carter acting like Emma Watson who is acting like Hermione who is acting like Bellatrix).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNMrWS8uA9sGoF1wu5Cvz4JMWzvxJw2uPA5hcqQuwzoGY/image.png</p> <p>3. For the inside of the vault at Gringotts, 210,000 coins were created.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmRCEjK4TuFscPBKZiyEFtKvZ3duvdf4ApbCSmGzRoaix4/image.png</p> <p>4. Bellatrix always makes sure to stand on Voldemort's right side because the person on the right side is the most trusted and loyal follower.</p> <p>5. This is the shortest out of all the Harry Potter movies, at 2 hours and 10 minutes.</p> <p>6. When Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 was released, it set the record for the highest grossing opening weekend ever at $169.2 million (it beat The Dark Knight). The Avengers (2012) beat that record at $207.4 million.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNQudTgEkoHD1FqLpJvhqxKynu5tFrsXaT1ivfAeXJJeM/image.png</p> <p>7. A mini scale model of Hogwarts was used in the previous movies, but in this one Hogwarts was created digitally.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmUgaaDiwedv627bPJimfQrmfSuabQPmtimN13xr4Kj7kc/image.png</p> <p>8. To make the look of destruction, five 29 tons trucks worth of rubble was used.</p> <p>9. The kiss between Ron and Hermione took 6 takes (Harry's/Ginny's at 10 takes, Ron's/Lavendar's at 15 takes, Harry's/Cho's at over 30 takes).</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmY2FnwGmnycrskhezLMR9Rhrq7Re51d5pUspmm2SuwCdn/image.png</p> <p>10. By the end of the series, Daniel Radcliffe broke 80 wands because he liked to use them as drumsticks.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmem8aAu9XcfDNHzQ4Wfi8fGDJtJ8hTLv9QHrCEiX2Aws8/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Let's take a look at this weekend's (July 14-16) 7 highest grossing movies!! <strong>[Click on the blue links to watch the trailer for each movie!!]</strong></p> <h1>7. Wish Upon-<em>$5.6 Million</em></h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmY3nJS9tAFVqMronmpy9vQVtNsbKJ9xkaxyJsQCxD7jEU/image.png</p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/VZjBpt5mCCA">Wish Upon</a> was released July 14, and got a 20% on Rotten Tomatoes. This is a horror film, and is about a girl who gets a music box from her grandfather that will grant her 7 wishes. She makes wishes that improve her life, but come with the cost of killing people she cares about in terrible ways (she is seduced by the darkness of the music box). This film definitely sounds scary, so if you don't like to be scared I definitely don't recommend this movie. This film is rated PG-13, and stars Joey King, Shannon Purser, and Ryan Phillippe.&nbsp;</p> <h1>6. Wonder Woman-<em>$6.9 Million</em></h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmT6sA3N3FbyjFyRhfACEGGPAWPTXZnf3E4YY99aBet2GR/image.png</p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/5HUlW21v1fQ">Wonder Woman</a> was released on June 2, but is still in the Top 10 of the Box Office! There is no surprise that this movie is still doing so well. If you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend buying a ticket. You don't have to know any comic book stuff or even what Wonder Woman is all about. The movie explains everything clearly, is funny, has great action, and amazing performances. This film is rated PG-13, and got a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. It stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, and Robin Wright.</p> <h1>5. The Big Sick-<em>$7.6 Million</em></h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmeMQ5S2e73HU2rA6W4zyLtHsnuZXpNCBV2wjTidMUXxCM/image.png</p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/jcD0Daqc3Yw">The Big Sick</a> was released June 23, and is rated R. The Big Sick is a Romantic Comedy, and got a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. A lot of people have been raving about this movie. I haven't seen it, but I heard that it was really good. The Big Sick is about the love story of Kumail Nanjiani (playing himself)and his real life wife Emily V. Gordon (played by Zoe Kazan). The screenplay was written by Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon. This film stars Holly Hunter, Kumail Nanjiani, and Zoe Kazan.</p> <h1>4.

I've heard great things about this film, and I really want to see it. This film is a crime movie and a thriller. It got a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, and was directed by Edgar Wright (director of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World/Shaun Of The Dead). This movie stars Ansel Elegort, Lily James, and Jamie Foxx.</p> <h1>3. Despicable Me 3-<em>$18.9 Million</em></h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQXbu2XCUVLCyAMY2LzAqG43iRVDQKB4B1xW4doe8X479/image.png</p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/euz-KBBfAAo">Despicable Me 3</a> was released June 30, and got a 61% on Rotten Tomatoes. This film is the 3rd in the Despicable Me trilogy. The spin-off, Minions is (sadly) getting a sequel in 2020. Despicable Me 3 has Steve Carell playing both Gru and Dru (his twin brother). I have not seen this movie, and I am just going to wait to watch it (I'm not very anxious to see it). If you loved the other 2 Despicable Me movies, I'm sure you will like Despicable Me 3 as well.</p> <h1>2. Spider-Man: Homecoming-<em>$45.2 Million</em></h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNfvQtXBv8aWdQXNuexBPmWaecRJk6g3SATZo7Ef934cU/image.png</p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/n9DwoQ7HWvI">Spider-Man: Homecoming</a> was released July 7, and got a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. I loved this film, and I think Tom Holland is the Spider-Man we have been waiting for. I really liked Vulture as the villain, and the twist in the movie. The post credits scene were very funny (there are 2), and I am so happy that Spider-Man is a part of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). We will see Spidey again in Avengers: Infinity War, and he has been confirmed 2 more of his own movies.</p> <h1>1. War For The Planet Of The Apes-<em>$56.5 Million</em></h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNw4bJMArRikPsFRJMrvDX2ES8NTs8xQ8kqqLhnnDr3b7/image.png</p> <p><a href="https://youtu.be/0IFAqAIWD6g">War For The Planet Of The Apes</a> was released July 14, and is rated PG-13.

War For The Planet Of The Apes stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, and Judy Greer.&nbsp;</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!</strong></em></p> <h3><strong>Thank you so much for 20 followers!!!</strong></h3> <p><br></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Alien came out May 25, 1979, and had only an $11 million budget. It got a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, and is a classic film (it is featured in The Great Movie Ride at Disney). Alien stars Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, who ends up being the last survivor on the cargo ship Nostromo (in the year 2122). The Alien franchise has 6 movies (Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien: Resurrection, Prometheus, and Alien: Covenant). Prometheus and Alien: Covenant are prequels. Let's take a look at some fun facts about the movie that started it all, Alien!!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmas7aSjL7vWRCCHiyc8h56tqHzg8kJ2U6rygVazx2pXLt/image.png</p> <p>1. Director Ridley Scott told Yaphet Kotto (who plays Parker) to annoy Sigourney Weaver (who plays Ripley) off-camera so there would be real tension between them (Kotto was upset about doing it because he likes Sigourney Weaver).</p> <p>2. The internal organs of the facehugger that Ash examines is made using 4 oysters, a sheep kidney, and fresh shellfish.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmRqPE18we1nf3YHZCs3ZmmQWbi62X56mcqHWU8zuaQWbK/image.png</p> <p>3. In order for Jones the Cat to react to the Alien descending, a German Shepard was placed in front of him behind a screen. They then removed the screen to make the cat hiss instead of advancing.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQT3A6rW6c8itLei9cWWEASTR8ibzJ8tiQ9mzoYQbQ2SD/image.png</p> <p>4. The original concept art of the Alien by H.R. Giger had eyes. He wanted the Alien in the movie to have no eyes, so it would look emotionless and cold.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmW2VurBrz13k1MWaaiV3atCHcUxPgc3L33k7ZofZxKVMr/image.png</p> <p>5. Writer Dan O'Bannon needed a reason for the Nostromo crew to not just shoot the Alien. Concept artist Ron Cobb came up with the idea that the Alien would bleed out acid.</p> <p>6. Director Ridley Scott filmed the Alien in mainly close ups so no one would get the idea that the Alien is just a man in a rubber suit (Bolaji Badejo plays the Alien, and is 7'1").</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmXQ9W4q5RFLRfJAGp4PgL4QDAMhLkXXjb97hD8yYqQEDR/image.png</p> <p>7. Copywriter Barbara Gips came up with the famous tagline, "in space, no one can hear you scream."</p> <p>8. The Xenomorph (the Alien) came into the movie an hour in and got 4 minutes of screen time.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQhQrnCY5oi9bUrmfNChHA46PHMxGE5EMuTD8y3xRDdaM/image.png</p> <p>9. Writer Dan O'Bannon originally titled Alien "Star Beast," but wasn't satisfied with it. He changed it to Alien after realizing the word came up a lot in the script, Alien is both a noun and an adjective, and no one had used the title Alien before.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmUwvb3WjzQwsYtrbr6AZw6W7LRk6BQbiuqEiyBSq1UZeQ/image.png</p> <p>10. When Kane's chest bursts, Veronica Cartwright (who plays Lambert) genuinely screamed when blood spewed on her because the cast didn't know how much blood there was going to be and where the blood would spew out.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmejq2ZDEX9Y9ddpYcDixdNTcogwC2opidDgsspTudhqum/image.png</p> <p>&nbsp;<em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!&nbsp;</strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>Coming later today....The Emoji Movie: What To Expect</strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>Source (not copy and pasted from):</strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0078748/trivia</strong></em></p> <h3><em>Thank you so much for 20 followers!!!</em></h3> <p><br></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

Doctor Strange was added to the MCU October 20, 2016. This movie features magic and has an Inception vibe to it. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Dr. Stephen Strange, whom after a car accident cannot use his hands. He finds a way to use his hands again, but as a sorcerer. This film shows the more magical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Don't worry Doctor Strange fans! Doctor Strange will be back in Avengers: Infinity War-which will be released May 4, 2018. Let's take a look at some fun facts about the Doctor Strange movie!!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmXz7rchiPjRiNAYAuu5NvkYTA8fEhVWL6T8VbFNP2kY7z/image.png</p> <p>1. Director Scott Derrickson is a big fan of Doctor Strange, so he used his own money on a concept video to send to Marvel so he could direct the film.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmcUNipd3MURZEuYckKRvWZ8YX5869yMutwwTtndGojxET/image.png</p> <p>2. Rachel McAdams (who plays Christine Palmer) was authentically frightened when the mop handle fell in the broom closet.</p> <p>3. When they were shooting the movie, Benedit Cumberbatch (who plays Doctor Strange) actually went into a comic store and bought a Doctor Strange comic in full costume.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmbpsfrRFphEsg5Bvks4GWEX3ARN3XRFUrjGpgF665oeiR/image.png</p> <p>4. Benedict Cumberbatch originally couldn't take the role because shooting began when he was committed to playing Shakespeare's Hamlet. The release date was pushed back from July 2016 to November 2016, so he was able to accept the role (the second choice was Joaquin Phoenix).</p> <p>5. Chiwetel Ejiofor (who plays Baron Mordo) is a 5th degree black belt in real life, so fighting is easy for him.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQnUZ8UNhdhk9ADYFjn9m82Ppk5MSca4xj6k4XwCaXeJ5/image.png</p> <p>6. James Gunn (director/writer of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1&amp;2) filmed Stan Lee's cameo in Doctor Strange, as well as in Vol. 2, and another movie that he did not share. Gunn said that Stan Lee's cameo is 1 of the 4 cameos that was filmed in one day itself.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmQmUiRe12WkE87hPqJspYJE3CzaSYGGRVvwstf8CXGrvG/image.png</p> <p>7. The scene where the Cloak of Levitation wipes Doctor Strange's tear was suggested by Benedict Cumberbatch to the crew-who liked it enough to include it in the film.</p> <p>8. Doctor Strange chooses a Jaeger watch before he has his car accident. Tony Stark also chose to wear a Jaeger watch in Iron Man 2 before he became self-destructive at his birthday party.</p> <p>9. Benedict Cumberbatch also plays the villain Dormammu-he recommended it to director Scott Derrickson.&nbsp;</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmSJr1KHM8H8BuhvdPBMi9uoV2isYpGMqMkiLq9fdiH69J/image.png</p> <p>10. Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi directed the mid-credits scene with Thor.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmamMJfSeN3dzVYFHwuJQ5pr1e6RXnucgdK1Uw5q6cUjLu/image.png</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!&nbsp;</strong></em></p> <p><h3><em>Thank you so much for 20 followers!!!</em></h3></p> <p><strong>Thanks for reading!

If you don't already know, every Friday I will post an article called Marauder's Movie Match. This is where two movies that have something in common fight to be the best movie. Today is Beauty And The Beast (1991) vs. Beauty And The Beast (2017)! <strong>If you want a say in the 2 movies that fight Friday, 8/4/17, comment below and your match may be picked!</strong> <strong>If it is, you will find out on Friday when the article is posted (8/4/17) and you will receive a shoutout in the article!! </strong>Now, let's get to the match!!&nbsp;</p> <p>Beauty And The Beast 2017 is a live-action reboot of the animated classic. It first came out in 1991, and is now a tale as old as time. Everyone loves the story of Belle and the Beast, so it is not a surprise how well the live-action reboot did. The original film got a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes, and the 2017 version got a 71%. The 2017 version had a star studded cast-with Emma Watson as Belle, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.The 1991 version had now Disney Legends Paige O'Hara as Belle and Angela Lansbury as Mrs. Potts. Let's take a look at which film is better, in this next <strong>Marauder's Movie Match!!</strong></p> <h1>~Beauty And The Beast (1991)~</h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNM71gN1neDEyYdE78PsUPHwYqK8TTXSu6wgwq5AKQhLt/image.png</p> <p>This film introduced us to the independent and well-educated Belle. She is an amazing heroine and a role model to everyone. The music in this movie is phenomenal, and definitely gets stuck in your head. This tale was an adventure from start to finish, with Belle sacrificing herself for her father's freedom. The enchanted castle was a magical place, even if the Beast's sadness was cast over it. I really loved the infamous ballroom scene, and the amazing animation that made it look 3D.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmZ326JJRDK4kcw4YqojPe7tDdbao4NtLJL1kf1ERtN4Bx/image.png</p> <p>I like how this movie has a female lead that has a personality, and who stands up for what she wants.&nbsp;My favorite enchanted object character is definitely Lumiere. He is very likeable and a funny guy. I like how he teases Cogsworth and does things even if his Master doesn't like it. He is definitely a ladies man, and a charmer. Gaston is another character that is entertaining to watch. He is so full of himself and doesn't actually care for anyone.&nbsp;I feel bad for LeFou because he is so loyal to Gaston, even though Gaston is just using him. I really enjoy the song Gaston because of the hilarious lyrics. It is a great uplifting song.&nbsp;</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmPeiHHVEuGpuU9vPXbaBfUtU5nvSedFbDYw4AEcHLubt2/image.png</p> <p>Belle's father is kind of a joke. He just walks into a random castle and makes himself at home?! That was not the smartest idea. He is also the joke of the town, which is why no one believes his story of a Beast keeping Belle in his castle. At least he is kind to Belle, and does not force her to marry Gaston. In this film, we don't know anything about Belle's mother, but it is assumed that she died.&nbsp;</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmWqqSbBN5KNdWU9Xgzc3LWYXuPRRAihZzf9rewtNcxJfn/image.png</p> <p>Belle and the Beast are an amazing couple. We watch as their love unfolds, and turns into something there that wasn't there before. Beast transforms from being cold and miserable to loving and caring. He saves Belle from the wolves, gives her a library, and lets her go back to her father-even if that means he will stay a Beast forever. They have a lot of romantic scenes, one being the snowball scene. I like how they didn't automatically love each other at first. We got to watch them grow and fall in love. This was a lot different than stories such as Cinderella and Snow White. Even Ariel in The Little Mermaid fell in love with Eric for his looks. This film changed the way the love stories are presented, and made it a little more realistic (minus the curse of the Beast and enchanted castle).&nbsp;</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmNqVS9YzqyUXZa3NbB4vw9SeVrC4Rk3G1xwBiUKmNB56e/image.png</p> <p>Overall, I think Beauty And The Beast (1991) is an animated classic and was very well done. The story was so much different than any other Disney princess movies. It has a strong female lead, and an actual love story. It has humor, fun, and magic. I really enjoy watching this movie again and again. It will definitely stand up to the test of time and be watched for many many many more years to come. Now, Be Our Guest and look at the 2017 version's argument!!</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmW73SDCNKQJLpjVdktG93qB6sVNiyUDoGKLD23quR2Rvc/image.png</p> <h1>~Beauty And The Beast (2017)~</h1> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmbRjV2ZjpisAV8m1Mgk8CyX2fMmRhF2j7LbSoKpWuwBfT/image.png</p> <p>The 2017 version was kept very similar to the original. It did fix some problems as well. It showed how Belle got the Beast on the horse after he was injured from the wolves attack. It also expanded on many characters' backstories. We know that Belle's mother died from the plague, Beast was twisted from his father-and the servants feel guilty for not stepping in-, Gaston enjoys war and widows(shows how deranged he is), the Enchantress lives in the village as Agatha, the curse made the whole village forget about the castle, and LeFou is gay. This did help the story expand and answered many questions that we all had.&nbsp;</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmR3wBcQFAypHWWDMp6uq3WG9Xrk4FMZsNoRgudJ4D5UcY/image.png</p> <p>Many scenes were kept shot for shot. When Maurice is first introduced to the Beast, he sees a shadow in the cartoon version. This is kept in the movie when Maurice falls on the ground after picking the rose and we see the Beast's shadow. We were also introduced to many new songs (Evermore, Aria, How Does A Moment Last Forever). I really enjoyed the new music, and I love how the Beast got his own song. Aria was the beginning song for the Beast's lavish party. I really enjoyed this scene because it showed how wealthy, carefree, and arrogant the Beast was. How Does A Moment Last Forever is a great song, and is in the movie twice (Maurice sings it in his house/Belle sings it in Paris).&nbsp;</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmRHZiACBVN6FvEV89LirXc41puMZ3FWwCKbEU4JyYka9C/image.png</p> <p>I loved the enchanted objects in this movie. Lumiere is once again my favorite. Ewan McGregor did a great job and he is still the same charming candlestick. Mrs. Potts is wonderful, and they also make a joke about her being Chip's grandmother (which is what a lot of people thought in the cartoon) when LeFou talks to her. Be Our Guest was an amazing and colorful scene to watch. It took a lot of time and effort to put that scene together, but it was definitely worth it. This scene showed exactly how extravagant Lumiere is and the lengths he will go to in order to show off. Cogsworth is just as uptight as ever, and Chip is still adorable.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmU2n85tEmtGMHJ28MPusjpTyUQFfMoMeF5gEJ84obSZCE/image.png</p> <p>Belle and Beast's love story was even more developed in this movie. We still got to see the snowball scene and the amazing ballroom dance. This movie showed how they are both very intellectual (they share a love of Shakespeare) and how they can relate to each other (they are both isolated in their own way). Gaston is an even bigger villain in this movie. We see as the movie progresses, his craziness grows. He is willing to leave Maurice for dead and kill an innocent Beast just for a girl he really doesn't care about. We even see LeFou have a change of heart, and how he knows about Gaston's insanity. I liked how the castle deteriorates from the curse and how the enchanted objects turn into regular household items from the curse.&nbsp;</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmfUe9dc4a1tLRPL1NkaQ4uMXAkY2jjy49vKpcCBeveykN/image.png</p> <p>Overall, this movie did the original justice and was great in live-action form. I loved how the characters were more in depth and the wedding scene at the end. I saw this movie twice in the theater, and loved it both times. I think this movie really helped Disney's confidence of turning their animated films into live action versions. Beauty And The Beast (2017) was a magical tale that stands up on its own.</p> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmUjJnnoGdcogtoWhCSfrgu4vkijnxiHRohXotCRd3BYXN/image.png</p> <h1>~Conclusion~</h1> <h2>Beauty And The Beast (1991) is the WINNER</h2> <p>https://steemitimages.com/DQmS8d1CKVfaFno9TokT3V3ZjJqZ9HtUmTmYaapesCcSSUA/image.png</p> <p>While Beauty And The Beast (2017) was very very good, it is not the original. The original came up with the story and music, and the 2017 version is just a retelling of the same thing. The live action version may have fixed some issues and went deeper into character's backstories, but it is still a copy of the 1991 film. The 1991 version is such an amazing and magical tale that is just better than the live action one.</p> <p><em><strong>If you enjoyed this article and want more content like this everyday--follow me</strong></em> <a href="https://steemit.com/@moviemarauder"><em><strong>@moviemarauder</strong></em></a> <strong>(1 more follower to get to 20!!!)</strong> <em><strong>and upvote this post!!!&nbsp;</strong></em> &nbsp;</p> <ul> <li><em><strong>Don't forget</strong></em><em>---If you want a say in the 2 movies that fight Friday-8/4/17, comment below and your match may be picked!
