August 2015 Action Movies

I feel like a remake of Fantastic Four is unnecessary, but maybe this version will be more fun than the ones from a few years ago. The last Hitman movie seemed to come and go quietly so I am surprised another one was made, and it doesn’t even have a good actor as the lead. I do want to see Man from U.N.C.L.E. because it looks like old school spy movie and Guy Ritchie does make fun action films.

Remake of this superhero origin story, with overall better cast, even though I did love Chris Evans as the Human Torch in the original one. I guess he’s a tad busy being Captain America these days.
