HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
More superhero news today as well! I told you yesterday that the official title for the sequel of last year's blockbuster will be CAPTAIN AMERICAN: THE WINTER SOLDIER, and a new update says that rising star Anthony Mackie (you can currently watch him in ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER) will join Chris Evans in
it. According to "MovieWeb" he will play Sam Wilson, a.k.a. The Falcon. He was first introduced in 1969, and is one of the first African American superheroes. His power comes from a suit that gives him super strength and allows him to fly, along with the telepathic ability to communicate with birds. The new title also hints that Sebastian Stan's Bucky Barnes will be brought back to life as The Winter Soldier.
Your second trailer for today is for a delightful and slightly crazy Irish comedy GRABBERS which hits cinemas over at Ireland this August and has two famous British stars Russell Tovey (from BEING HUMAN) and always brilliant and hilarious Richard Coyle (COUPLING) in the lead roles. This rather unusual, but highly original,
film is a mix of comedy, action and science fiction. The story is set on an island off the coast of Ireland which, for reasons unknown, gets invaded by horrid bloodsucking aliens, after which the heroes of the story discover that getting drunk is the only way to survive.
