Passionate about movies, sports and writing, Ryan hails from Bend but lives in Springfield now. He earned his college degree in journalism from the University of Oregon and hopes to one day write a novel. He also enjoys sunsets and long walks on the beach.
Universal has released the first trailer for Ted 2. The huggable, foul-mouthed teddy bear is back with Mark Wahlberg also reprising his role from the first movie. In this one Ted wants to get married and have a kid, but he must first prove that he in fact has a soul. I'll admit I wasn't a huge fan of the first one. There were some terrific moments but it isn't a movie I revisit often. This first trailer for the second one is more of the same for me, but I like the supporting cast which includes Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman. Ted 2 opens June 26.
Child 44 Trailer
The first trailer for Child 44 has hit the web. Tom Hardy stars as a secret police agent in 1953 Soviet Russia tasked with tracking down a serial killer who has murdered 44 children. Hardy is always fantastic (And he always has a new accent) and it also features Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Jason Clarke and Vincent Cassel. I've seen a lot of procedurals but none set in 1950s Russia. Looks promising. Child 44 opens April 17.
Fantastic Four Trailer
The first trailer for Fantastic Four has FINALLY arrived. Josh Trank (Chronicle) directs 20th Century Fox's fourth attempt at a Fantastic Four movie with Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell as the titular group. This is very much a teaser as I have no idea what's going on, but the tone looks dark and serious and I'm intrigued. Fantastic Four opens August 7.
