Mr. Peabody and Sherman were always my favorite parts of the old Rocky and Bullwinkle show. However, after the Rocky and Bullwinkle movie I pretty much gave up on the idea of modern versions of that old show. Are there really kids, who I assume would be the ones wanting to see Mr. Peabody, who understand what and who this is? Or will they hope parents somehow remember that old cartoon and drag kids to see it?
Next up is The Appearing, which I have to assume is a horror film. Based on true events is always something fun to put on your poster, especially anything scary. But having a so-so rating of PG-13 is pretty lackluster.
Carrie normally isn't a jump scare of a horror movie. It's a creepy revenge fantasy and like a lot of Stephen King based stories are a scarier situation you can mentally distance yourself from. I hope Chloe Grace Moretz can support a movie almost entirely by herself since Carrie has to be a more reserved character than what Chloe is known for in the past.
We end this week with the new Captain America: Winter Soldier poster. It shows a bit of the new suit, which you can catch better images of by now, and doesn't really reveal much about the plot. Overall it is a pretty simple poster but for me is effective. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles when it comes to Marvel movies anymore. I know, mostly, what to expect from these films now.
