This is RPX

A month ago I asked what RPX was and the internet really wasn’t all that much help. Luckily I already had tickets to an RPX Show so I was going to find out anyways. I’ll make my answer brief at first; it’s a way for Regal Entertainment Group to get more of your money. In reality there are some differences from a standard film watching experience in a Regal Cineplex but I don’t feel that that benefits the movie going audience to match the $4 add on in the ticket price (non-3D).

What is RPX?

What is RPX? Well the short of it is it’s an acronym for Regal Premium Experience and it’s offered by Regal Cinemas nationwide. According to their site it’s available in 12 theaters right now (http://www NULL.regmovies NULL.com/rpx/). Po-dunk NH seems to have one, just recently installed, not even open for a month. I didn’t seek this out, I’m just lucky.

I’ve seen plenty of movies on different screens like IMAX (Tron:Legacy most recently) and IMAX has a lot to offer, but what is RPX going to give me? My only one concern with it is unlike IMAX, it’s just a way to show a movie. IMAX is a different way to shoot the movie, much larger frame, and if you saw Tron:Legacy in IMAX 3D then you should understand. Tron:Legacy was brilliantly presented in standard film stock and IMAX in addition to 2D and 3D, only turning to IMAX 3D when they were on the Grid, the real world was 2D standard film stock. RPX Doesn’t have this, is that going to set it appart? In a good or bad way?

The interwebs are buzzing with joy, as we have the first extended length Captain America: The First Avenger trailer. I love the period piece beginnings, then it kicks it up to full throttle ass kicking. I’m really thinking the Avengers movie is going to be amazing, getting the cast together will be AWESOME. Here’s cast list and then hit the jump for the trailer.

Chris Evans Steve Rogers / Captain America

A couple hours ago @Super8Movie posted the first full length Trailer for Steven Spielberg produced JJ Abrams directed Super 8 (http://www NULL.twitvid NULL.com/T6FFB) only on TwitVid right now so no embed but here is the link: http://www.twitvid.com/T6FFB (http://www NULL.twitvid NULL.com/T6FFB)

My initial reaction is that it screams classic. I have faith in Abrams after seeing Star Trek that he knows how to handle Sci-Fi, and with Cloverfield he definately knows how to handle creature features. Having this movie set in the past with mostly unknown/lesser known actors is a great formula. I’m looking forward to this movie, and have been since the teaser hit last year. Definately an IMAX worthy movie, and probably the movie I’m looking forward to most this summer, as it’s original meterial not a sequel or based on a comic book.

Update (3/24): Trailer is now able to embeded to this site… here you go!

So excited, nothing better than a fantasicly crude and off topic comedy. Sequels don’t often work, but I’m optomistic about this one!

In “The Hangover Part II,” Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.

Now this is a comedy! I feel like most of the post ‘The Hangover’ movies just keep trying to recreate the same thing, but this has an entirely different feel to it. LOVE IT!

Trailer is Red Band, but no visual problems, just language so NSFW (unless you got headphones)

Keeping with yesterdays post of what I’m looking forward to in the theaters, Sucker Punch (March 25). Here’s the most recent trailer:

Sucker Punch is directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) and has an ensemble cast including Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens and Jamie Chung. I really enjoy Snyders sytle and tone in his films, I might be in the minority but I really enjoyed Watchmen (changing the ending aside) the action in this movies looks to be amazing. I’m easy to please when it comes to movies I look for entertainment value and if it lets me escape into the film. This film may not end up with any nominations for best actor or actress but as long as the acting isn’t bad enough to take away from the story and the action, it’ll be a fun ride.

I’m working on a post for this weekend of my top movies so everyone can get a better idea about my tastes.

One of my favorite ways to zone out is to jump into a movie for 90+ minutes. I’m so looking forward to Hanna, scheduled to hit April 8th, it’s easily my flick I’m looking forward to most in the near future (ignoring the slate of summer flix we’re getting this year) to give you a taste if you’re not familiar with the title here is the trailer:

Makes me drool for the soundtrack like when the first tracks from Daft Punk’s ‘Tron Legacy’ score hit, I was also impressed with Trent Reznor’s score for ‘The Social Network‘ I’m really looking forward to The Chemical Brothers score on this flick. Here is a short clip released today of the film that does a great job at highlighting that track.

Anyone else as psyched about this action flick?
