Bonds are unwritten. It’s a feeling, a connection, a similarity you have with someone shared through the same likeness.
With the release of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Jurassic World trailers in November, we are anticipating an exciting blockbuster line up in 2015!
The Fast & Furious has released the official trailer for the seventh installment of the upcoming action film. The franchise, which is unusually popular with the Jamaican audience, was rocked by tragedy last year when Paul Walker, the film’s beloved hero, was killed in a high speed car accident in Los Angeles. After Walker’s passing the crew showed their solidarity and love for the late actor with a slew of posts on social media and a very public outpouring of grief. Production was also halted since the movie was in the middle of filming when the actor was killed. Along with the trailer the film’s producers posted these words on YouTube:
As someone who grew up in the ’90s, Dumb and Dumber has continuously stuck with me. Since the first time I watched it, it became an integral part of who I am today and has a dear place on my list of all time favorites. When Dumb and Dumber premiered in 1994, Jim Carrey was already a familiar household name from his other movies like The Mask and Ace Ventura Pet Detective. But Dumb and Dumber changed everything. He became a member of the family. The movie also became a sort of coming of age milestone for my brothers and I as our favorite comedy of all time. It was our introduction to goofy. Even my mother, who is a very reverent woman, couldn’t hold it in and laughed along with us the first time we watched it.
