Movies on the way
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (April 4) - Heroes have to find a way to catch up with the times. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) AKA Captain America volunteered for a secret Government experiment that gave him a new body with enhanced strength and speed. He used his new body to fight against the Red Skull and the forces of Hydra. The final battle was won but came at a heavy cost with Cap crashlanding a weapon headed for New York. He was frozen and revived after 70 years that forced him to try and catch up with the modern day. After helping the Avengers win the battle of New York, Cap went to work for Shield. Under General Fury's (Samuel M Jackson) command and with the aid of the Black Widow (Scarlet Johannsen), Steve starts to question how the organization operates. Now they come under attack from a new enemy codenamed "The Winter Soldier" (Sebastian Stan). With his new ally "The Falcon" (Anthony Mackie), will Cap be able to stop this new threat and find the answers he's looking for?
The Amazing Spider Man 2 (2014)- (May 2) - The longer you're a hero, the more things get complicated. Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) didn't ask to become a hero but he was forced to after the death of his Uncle Ben and the threats to his new lady love Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) and to the city. Peter also finds it very hard to keep his promise to Gwen's Father to stay away from her after he passed away. Now there's a chance Gwen might be leaving when she gets a chance to move to England. Now there are new enemies on the horizon with the arrival of Electro (Jamie Foxx) and an old friend with hidden intentions. Will Peter be able to stop them and keep Gwen from leaving him forever?
Godzilla (2014) - (May 16)- Something really big is coming. Joe Brody (Brian Cranston) knows that there is something very wrong. With his son Ford (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) being in the Army and his daughter Elle (Elizabeth Olsen) who could be in harm's way, Joe just wants to get to the truth. The more he finds out, the more terrified he gets and he knows that the Government is trying to hide it. They're not going to be able to keep a lid on it for much longer because what's coming is big and is heading for New York City. What exactly is coming and can Joe help find a way to stop it?
X-Men-Days of Future Past- (May 23) -No one said being on a team was easy. After Logan AKA Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) returned from Japan, he was found by Magneto (Ian Mccellan). Magneto tried to tell him that there was a new and very dangerous threat coming that endangered the World and especially Mutants. Logan's not exactly very trusting. Much to his surprise, he's confronted by Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) who convinces him that the threat is real and they all have to work together to find a way to stop it. Logan has to time travel to meet up with the Professor's younger self (James Mcavoy) to stop the threat that's coming or the World will surely fail. Working with both X-Men teams from the past and the future, is Logan going to be able to be the bridge to help save the World?
Transformers:Age of Extinction- (June 27)- You never want to lose your heroes because there's a good chance they will be needed once more. Five years go by after the Autobots helped save the World from the Decepticons forces led by Megatron after they tried to bring Cybertron to destroy the Earth. The World has forgotten about them and is enjoying a quiet peace. That's all about to change. Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) is an inventor and is always looking for a way to make some extra money. He finds an old beat up truck and starts to fix it up. Cade thinks he might have found Optimus Prime who no one has seen in years. Cade and his family get a visit from mercenaries who want to know where the Autobot leader is. Optimus reactivates and now has to help his new friends and reunite his old allies to take on the Decepticons and the new threat they pose along with corrupt Government officals led by Harold Attinger (Kelsey Grammar). Are the Autobots going to stop this new threat?
Make sure you double check the release dates because they always have a chance of changing on us. The Toddster is really looking forward to checking these picks out and there's a good chance they could be a featured in a future Toddster's Take. The Toddster shall return.
