Raise your hand if this kind of movie sounds appealing to you: Sci-fi, Laurence Fishburne, and lots of M-4’s (that’s AR’s for all my civilian counterparts out there). No, this isn’t another Battle for Los Angeles – which was a great movie nonetheless – or even another Starship Troopers Redux. The name of this intriguing Summer 2014 potential blockbuster is The Signal, and the exciting trailer above gives us enough information to want more, but not enough to truly know what we’re, or Nic, the main character is dealing with. As a huge fan of sci-fi, as well as Mr. Fishburne’s acting resume – not to mention M-4’s! – The Signal looks like it has potential to be an awesome film.

Who should I thank? Christopher Nolan may be my first guess, but Zach Snyder probably deserves the biggest high-five since he’s the director. Superman has been a mammoth in the comic book world since its inception, but to this guy, the character himself, along with the television shows and lately the movies have all been super cheesy. Maybe I’m a little biased because of my preference for Batman, but I don’t want to bring in the superhero debate. I mentioned Mr. Nolan earlier on because Man of Steel, the latest Superman movie to hit the big screen in just two weeks on June 14th, has that same dark feel that the most recent Batman director brought to the Dark Knight series, and that has me really pumped for this flick. Watch the trailer and I guarantee you’ll agree; Man of Steel looks legit.
