escape plan 2 trailer

The sequel you’ve all been waiting for with bated breath is coming. The Escape Plan 2 trailer brings back the things that everyone loved about the first film: Sylvester Stallone, breaking out of insane dystopian-style prisons, and…muscle-y men? Stallone’s last screen buddy Arnold Schwarzenegger is nowhere to be seen, but at least there’s Dave Bautista, stepping up from his frequent appearances as a scene-stealing supporting character. And this time, they’re in China!

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Avengers: Infinity War.)

Everything dies, baby that’s a fact
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.

– Bruce Springsteen, “Atlantic City”

Does Avengers: Infinity War live up to the hype? That depends. If you wanted nothing more than to see the majority of the Marvel Cinematic Universe characters up on the screen together, then yes, Infinity War delivers. If you were hoping for something deeper, you might find yourself wanting more. Ultimately, Infinity War is a magic trick of a movie, full of deception and misdirection. It entertains, sure – but when the smoke clears, we can’t help but see the obvious way the trick was designed.

Dave Bautista has proven to be a stellar supporting actor in all manner of blockbusters — whether it be as a grim former soldier in Blade Runner 2049 or his lovable meathead Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy. But now, Bautista is ready to step into leading man territory.

Bautista will star in not one, but two action-comedies. The first is an mismatched buddy-detective comedy from 20th Century Fox co-starring Kumail Nanjiani, while the second is a Jon and Erich Hoeber-penned STX comedy.

dave bautista blade runner 2049

Towering at 6′ 3″ and boasting a thickset neck and torso, Dave Bautista is already an unlikely Hollywood star. The former professional wrestler and mixed martial arts fighter shot to stardom in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy as Drax, the gruff musclehead alien with a heart, and continues to shine in intriguing roles like that of the Replicant Sapper Morton in Blade Runner 2049.

But Bautista nearly didn’t get his memorable role in Denis Villeneuve‘s ambitious science fiction sequel. And it wasn’t because of a poor audition or his intimidating height. It was because — at 48 years old — everyone thought he was just too young.

Gosling Blade Runner

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049.)

Any review of Blade Runner 2049 is by default a spoiler review. Warner Brothers and director Denis Villeneuve have gone to extreme lengths to keep the majority of details about their sci-fi sequel a secret, including limiting press screenings and issuing stern warnings to the press who did see the film to not reveal anything. This is both a commendable and unfortunate approach. While it’s true that movie marketing tends to give away too much for many films, and going into a film cold can make for a more rewarding experience, the tight-lipped approach to Blade Runner 2049 may have inadvertently doomed it at the box office. Audiences knew so little about the film from its less-than-engaging trailers that they simply didn’t bother to attend.

Which is a shame, because Blade Runner 2049 is one of the very best films of 2017, and one of the most staggering big studio releases you’re likely to come across. How on earth did Denis Villeneuve convince Warner Brothers to let him make a gigantic, foreboding tone poem and dress it up as a Blade Runner sequel? We may never know, and if the film continues to underperform, we may never get so lucky again.

So how about we dive into a Blade Runner 2049 spoiler review and talk about what makes this movie work so well?
