Some movies we consider "Pang-dibidi lang" such as most rom-coms, all musicals, and porn B-movie creature features.
Superhero movies fall on this spectrum's opposite end. With made-for-the-big-screen visuals, ear-rattling explosions, and really, really tight costumes, our TV sets just can't handle them right. These comic book adaptations merit the big-screen treatment.
Thankfully there's no shortage of it in 2014. Below are eight of the loudest popcorn-popping comic book superhero movies coming to town this year!
1) I, Frankenstein
Showing in: January 2014
Remember I, Robot? Well, that has nothing to do with this movie.
This movie is a reimagining of the classic Frankenstein monster based on the graphic novel of the same name. On the frontline is Dr. Victor Frankenstein and his creature Adam played by Aaron Eckhart who continues to roam the earth 200 years after his birth. Directed by Pirates of the Carribean writer, Stuart Beattie, the flick is sure to strike the first quarter of the year like a life-giving lightning bolt.
Showing in: February 2014
This is not your dad's robocop.
This is your robocop that's adapted from the Marvel comic book series that was adapted from the Paul Veroheven original movie. Detroit police office Alex Murphy returns as the super-robot version of himself this time donning an ultra-sleek black suit!
3) 300: Rise Of An Empire
Showing in: March 2014
Are you ready to handle the next coming of Leonidas? Are you ready for more Spartans-moving-slow-mo action? Well, guess what? The next installment, based on the unpublished Frank Miller graphic novel, Xerxes, is set to give you that same brand of stylized action. As you might have guessed, this movie focuses on that megalomaniac as he faces the Greek general Themistocles.
NEXT: Captain America, Spiderman, and more X-Men!
