So waaay into the future, some things change; but some things remain the same… and go a bit more insane.

In this story, their commander (Clive Owen) sends the duo on a mission to Alpha, an intergalactic city where diverse species share their technology and resources for the betterment of all.

The Magnificent Seven (Trailer)

Yeah, this is gonna work! Denzel’s capability to bring new life to classic gritty concepts (exhibit A: his performance in “The Equalizer”), combined with some weighty co-star casting and that the target audience will be folks who’d like a reboot of the original “Magnificent Seven” movie AND folks who may not have even born when that was released… And the trailer is kick azz. Let’s go!

Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ and Columbia Pictures’ “The Magnificent Seven. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers and hired guns – Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier).

Anarchy (Trailer)

Solid ensemble cast. Compelling story. The trailer above is teasing some must-see viewing. Might have to get in a theater seat this Spring to catch a first showing.

Good Kill (Trailer)

Wow. Take a look at this “Good Kill” (in UK theaters April 10, 2015) trailer, and if you feel like engaging some friends in discussion about the morality of the world’s #1 superpower (looking at U-S-A, U-S-A) waging wars in which its combatants are at zero risk of dying on the battlefield… do that!

A fighter-pilot turned drone-pilot, based in Las Vegas, fights the Taliban by remote control for twelve hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other twelve. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is he fighting a war without end? One soldier’s tale with epic implications.

Just to get the debate started: Isn’t a big part of the reason we HATE war related to us not wanting to lose precious lives…on both sides? Well, how quick would one side be to war with another if the chance of their losing lives went to zero? Would the side without drone technology to allow such be more inclined to launch terror attacks on their enemy’s homefronts (where all the ‘innocent civilians’ are)? What would that mean for the homefront’s Homeland Security policies (e.g. think there’s a police state now). And back up a few more feet… do drone pilots even have to have the experience of actual combat so they have at least a little sensitivity to the horror of war? Before you answer that last one, hit the jump.
