Captain America Civil War Iron Man

Get ready for former besties Iron Man and Captain America to butt heads over a dude — or maybe over their feelings about the Superhuman Registration act, it’s hard to tell.

The film — the first of Marvel’s Phase 3 schedule — will be released in theatres on May 6, 2016. You can check the trailer in all its angsty glory below.

24 Nov

Top Ten Tuesday Alice Wonderland

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly original feature created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish that combines the fun of making lists with our love of books.

This week’s topic is a Thanksgiving-themed freebie and since Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland celebrates its 150th anniversary on Thanksgiving day, the best list possible is a Wonderland themed one!

SIDE NOTE: In case you didn’t know, I have over 19 different editions of the two books in the Alice series and had an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding, so you could say I’m a little obsessed.

The ‘A Monster Calls’ Teaser Trailer Hints at Fantasy and Heartbreak to Come

19 Nov

A Monster Calls Art

Based on the Patrick Ness book of the same name, A Monster Calls tells the heart-breaking story of Conor, who is struggling with bullies at school, his mother’s fight with cancer at home and a monstrous tree straight from his nightmares.

Directed by Juan Antonio Bayona — who made the horrifying film The Orphanage — and starring Liam Neeson, Felicity Jones and Sigourney Weaver, we have high hopes that this fantastical novel is well-suited for the big screen.

Despite the super early promotion of the film, Ness’ adaptation will not hit theatres until October 14, 2016.

Reign of Shadows Sophie Jordan CoverWaiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.

For our inaugural Waiting on Wednesday selection we’re choosing a book we cannot stop staring at: Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan.

Because yes, we have been known to judge books by their covers. Sorry. (Pssst, not sorry.)

The story itself? We could take or leave the tale of two star-crossed lovers going on an adventure, but we love the hints of darkness.

Reign of Shadows — which already boasts some praise from Throne of Glass writer Sarah J. Maas — hits shelves both literal and proverbial on February 9, 2016.

Oh. Yay. The ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Trailer is Out. How Exciting.

5 Nov

The travesty that is Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland has an upcoming a sequel starring everyone you would expect from a Tim Burton movie but with 100% less Tim Burton.

This time around, the movie is super loosely based on Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, except the plot revolves around finding the Mad Hatter. Or something.

To be honest? We’re still really upset about how horrible that first film was.
