Tag: Samuel L Jackson
Nearly a decade ago the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off with Iron Man. We didn’t know it at the time; we had no idea what we were in for until the credits wrapped up. At that point Samuel L. Jackson walked out of the shadows and introduced himself as Nick Fury, and he wanted us to know about the Avengers Initiative. Since then Jackson has appeared in 7 more films as the character. And it looks like he’s about to be back in action again.
Samuel L. Jackson is a very busy actor, having starred in over 20 movies in the past five years. However, one movie he won’t be appearing in is Marvel’s upcoming Black Panther film…and he’s not happy about that!

Cinelinx is taking a second look at seven trailers for some of the most anticipated upcoming movies.
David Yates’ The Legend of Tarzan does an effective job bringing the iconic King of the Jungle back to the big screen in a way that stays true to the classic books.

However, will this film resonate with modern audiences who are unfamiliar with the character?
The Hateful Eight is coming home on Digital HD and Blu-ray!
There have been many, many film and TV adaptations of Tarzan since the character first debuted in 1912. Some have been good, but most have been rather weak. Few have been truly accurate to the original Edgar Rice Burroughs novels. What does next year’s The Legend of Tarzan need to do to make Tarzan entertaining, relevant and marketable in the 21st Century?
