Life- March 24th

Life is a science fiction thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, and Rebecca Ferguson. They play scientists aboard the International Space Station who discover a life form that has its sites set on wiping out Earth. What stood out to me about this release is that it’s written by the same guys who gave us Deadpool.

CHIPS- March 24th

Micheal Pena and Dax Shepard step into the roles of Ponch and Baker in this updated version of the 1980’s TV Show. The movie was written and directed by Dax Shepard so this movie could either be hysterical or a massive bomb. We will see.

Power Rangers- March 24th

If I’m honest, the thought of a Power Rangers movie at first made me feel ill. Then I saw that they had signed Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks to this project. Follow that up with the gritty look of the trailer, and it sold me.
