Everything is fun and games till the sharks turn on you! <guffaw> I must admit I LOVED Deep Blue Sea when I saw it with friends at the Cinemadome and we laughed like hyenas! It was and still is the funniest horror movie I’ve ever seen so let me be the first to say … am ready to watch this with a bowl of hot buttered popcorn and a soda (no brand preference).

Has humanity learned nothing about making sharks super smart? What next giving them legs so they can terrorize us on land next (just kidding sharks rarely attack humans)? Well it looks like we haven’t because a new mad genius has decided to improve on the sea killing machines that haven’t changed all that much since the time of dinosaurs.  Deep Blue Sea 2 will be released on April 17, 2018 on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP), DVD ($19.98 SRP) and Digital. The Blu-ray™ Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition, a standard definition DVD and a digital version of the film and will be rated R for gore, violence, language and general mayhem!

Deep Blue Sea 2, shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun (Danielle Savre) is invited to consult on a new, top secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant (Michael Beach). She believes the project, performed at a remote, sea-based facility, focuses on extracting shark antibodies to help work toward cures for human diseases. However, Dr. Calhoun is shocked to learn that the company is using unpredictable bull sharks as its test subjects, and Durant has bio-engineered a shiver of highly intelligent, super-aggressive bull sharks. When science meddles with the time-tested process of nature and nurture, the outcome can be deadly. The film is directed by two-time Independent Spirit Award nominee Darin Scott (Menace II Society, To Sleep With Anger), and written by Hans Rodionoff (Lost Boys: The Tribe) and award-winning writing partners Jessica Scott & Eric Patterson (Another Cinderella Story). Tom Keniston (Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure) serves as executive producer, and Tom Siegrist (Santa’s Little Helper, The Exorcism of Molly Hartley) is the film’s producer.

Rounding out the cast are Danielle Savre (Heroes, Boogeyman 2) in the lead role of shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun; Rob Mayes (John Dies at the End, Mistresses) as Trent Slater, a highly decorated ex-Navy SEAL; and Michael Beach (Third Watch, The 100, upcoming Aquaman) as Carl Durant, a big pharma billionaire with questionable ethics. Rounding out the cast is Nathan Lynn (Outlander) as tech expert Aaron Ellroy, Kim Syster (Sterlopers) as neurobiologist Leslie Kim, and Jeremy Jess Boado (House Party: Tonight’s the Night) as clinical neurophysiologist Daniel Kim.

 

Deep Blue Sea 2 is a true sequel, staying within the mythology of the original film, and taking the next step in the evolution of the sharks … and their human counterparts,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, WBHE, Vice President, TV Marketing, Family & Animation. “This time, there’s more perspective from the sharks, giving greater personality to the ‘villains’ in this film. It’s a thrill ride that will keep the audience guessing throughout.”

August 21st, 2016 by Cherry

I went to see Suicide Squad with very low expectations since I wasn’t impressed with most of the cast, am tired of the Joker/Batman/Superman and DC movies are uneven. I got my hopes a little bit at SDCC with all the fans excited about various characters from the film and all the fan experiences.

I was pretty spot on with my concerns from watching ads and reading about reshoots of the film after the dismal Batman vs Superman (if you want to have a movie about Batman and Superman fighting have a DAMN movie about them fighting smh). One of the first things I noticed and didn’t like is that the film is so dark even with the pop of candy color it just was so shadowy it was hard to make out the movie. The opening sequence didn’t pull me in and left me feeling and just wasn’t sticky so I’d like to say what I’D do if I were in charge of the movie/DC Films.

I would divide the film into 2 separate arcs. The first is showing why Amanda wanted to create the Suicide Squad and A.R.G.U.S. test capture of 3 metahumans. If I’d been writing the film it would have opened with some people being killed by a villain or even by a metahuman fighting a bad guy/gal and they would just be collateral damage and Amanda Wallis leading A.R.G.U.S. are unable to do anything. The next scene is the opening title/credits for the film with the comic book that has inspired the film. Amanda and her team are capturing metahumans and putting them in the bunker. They have a couple of lowlevel/weakones and after practicing they decide to grab a ‘big gun’. Amanda is in the war room with the ‘Most Wanted’ on the board decided who will be the first test of her men/women. She say’s first we grab Deadshot using the love of his child. Harley Quinn using her love of violence, sex and the Joker (he’s not on camera). The closing scene is the main gate closing of the facilities. Closing credits and than the scene opens with Amanda and the Generals in a skybox looking down at the prisoners using their powers. She says ‘their will always be metahumans wrecking havoc but we need our own to fight for humanity’. One general says ‘we can’t control these monsters’. Amanda smiles and opens a hand with a little pill and says ‘I’m always in control’. That’s the first film where humans go up against three bad guys/gals.

One of the residents of Apokolips, Granny Goodness is in charge of training (sometimes through brainwashing) new soldiers for Darkseid’s forces. She leads the Female Furies.

The second film would start with capturing the rest of the team with backstory and their first takedown as Suicide Squad of a better villain than the Enchantress and her bother . I would have loved ANY of these lesser villains that would have been hard to take down and were just visually more interesting. Also WHY did she shimmy while casting spells? I expected a pole to appear and 5 inch stripper heels to match the stripper outfit she had on to appeal to ‘fanboys’.

 

 

Grey Lora High ranking operative of the terrorist army Basilisk.

Artemis is the Shim’Tar (greatest warrior) of the Egyptian Amazons of Bana-Mighdall. For a short time, she also held the title of Wonder Woman.

Also the ‘big bad’ was a big boring snore and the fight scenes looked like a pretty

Agni was a member of the Jihad and had pyrokinetic abilities.

good video game but I don’t want to see a movie that looks like I could be playing it at home. I suppose my frustration is watching this film gave glimmers of what a blast it could have been but DC failed to make a good non Batman movie and is too busy playing catch up to Marvel that they are ignoring the incremental steps they took to introduce new characters and build up a world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What did you think of the film? Geek out below with what you thought of the Suicide Squad.

Darkness & Light: Art Inspired by Heroes & Villains, Hope & Heroism exhibition is a one-of-a-kind art and education tour to raise awareness and funds for the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa. Darkness & Light features some of today’s top contemporary artists and showcases a collection of original artwork inspired by DC Comics’ Justice League characters paired with real world photography that depicts the everyday heroes fighting hunger in Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya. From the Super Heroes that fight for justice in the comic world, to the human heroes who make a difference every day in the real world,Darkness & Light tells the story of the crisis through the lens of those working tirelessly to be of service to those in need.

The exhibition shows us what is possible when we tap into our own best qualities of responsibility, willpower and inner strength to be of service to others in need. And just like our favorite Justice League Super Heroes, the art reflects the Super Hero powers we each hold that compel us to do good in the world.

The centerpiece of the collection features a large-scale piece of original artwork by Jim Lee, the legendary artist and DC Entertainment co-publisher, featuring the profile of Batman in a color palette inspired by the hues of Africa – yellow, green, red and black. Lee’s work is featured alongside journalistic photography that expose moments of heroism by aid workers in the Horn of Africa.

Select pieces of DC Entertainment artwork will be auctioned off at the end of the tour with all net proceeds going directly the We Can Be Heroes campaign.

Darkness & Light is launching at Mercy Corps’ Global Headquarters and gallery in Portland, Oregon – a nonprofit partner of We Can Be Heroes – and then traveling to cities across the country including Comic-Con in San Diego July 9-15.

If you’re in a tour city, stop by to see the artwork and find out how you can make a difference! DONATE

 

One small act can make you a hero. Give now.

Support our nonprofit partners working on the ground in the Horn of Africa
and DC Entertainment will match your donation 100%.
