The new trailer for A Wrinkle in Time has dropped. With a solid cast, and some brilliant visuals, it looks pretty danged amazing.
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle is probably one of the stranger books from some of our childhoods. Disney’s film adaptation has been in the works since 2010, but didn’t really kick into gear until 2014 when Frozen‘s Jennifer Lee was brought onboard. It’s certainly a unique story with some unique and pretty demanding visuals, so it will be interesting to see if the adaptation holds up to the original.
A Wrinkle in Time will find its way to theaters March 9, 2018.
Many of us have been excited at the idea of a sequel to The Incredibles for quite some time, and with a scheduled release for next summer. Now we finally have a teaser trailer for the film too.
It’s only about a minute long (not even), and it shows us almost nothing. That said, we’re so hungry for this movie even the slightest trickle has us going crazy. I mean, it’s just a movie… right? Right. I’m going to calm down now.
We haven’t really talked about the Rampage movie since it was first announced back in the summer of 2015, but the first trailer dropped a few days ago for the film. Starring Dwayne Johnson, and based off the classic video game… you can pretty much figure out what this movie is going to be.
The movie looks sadly like they’re taking the premise seriously, which is too bad — as the joy of Rampage was just how ridiculous the game was. I mean it was a game where you play a giant monster wrecking buildings. It seems a waste to just turn it into another straight action film. At least Johnson is a charming enough actor to make it watchable.
We took a few days off (since we all went to Daisho Con this last weekend) so we missed a few things last week. One of the big ones was the new teaser for Deadpool 2. There’s a montage of new footage and images in it, but it’s embedded in the middle of a rather on-point Bob Ross spoof.
Personally I think it’s pretty funny, and probably the most Deadpool-like way to promote the movie. The first film had some pretty creative marketing too – though that time around it was because the movie mostly had the freedom to do whatever it wanted (as it was a low priority for Fox). As Deadpool was a remarkably successful film though, his time around they know that stuff worked… so we should expect to see a lot more.
Even the Youtube description for this video isn’t exactly taking this seriously:
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water is, in many ways, a romance between mute woman and a fish monster. But lest we forget, it’s also set in the 1950s, during the Cold War. The final trailer for the film focuses on that aspect.
Honestly, I’m pretty excited for this movie. It’s a unique looking story, and The Shape of Water looks visually stunning. I mean, it’s directed by Guillermo del Toro. Visually stunning was kind of assumed.
Another trailer dropped for Bright this week, and Netflix’s first foray into blockbuster film making continues to look really, really good. It hits the same notes that we’ve seen in earlierpromotional materials for the film.
Will Smith plays a cop who gets assigned an Orcish partner (played by Joel Edgerton). There’s tension between them (as there’s an obvious racism allegory happening with the Orcs), and the two run across someone with a magic wand. A magic wand is, apparrently, “like a nuclear bomb that grants wishes.”
So, y’know, a little bit of a big deal.
This is the most I’ve ever been excited about a David Ayer film in my life. I mean, it’s a buddy cop modern fantasy film — we haven’t exactly seen that before. Getting something new out of Hollywood apparently took a streaming service.
We’ve gotten a couple of trailers already for the upcoming anime film Godzilla: Monster Planet, and now we have yet another one. And this one has Godzilla fighting spaceships.
That’s pretty neat.
For those of you who don’t speak Japanese (including me actually), the film is set in the distant future where monsters have taken over the earth. Humanity tried to get away and find a new home, but was unable to find a suitable new planet. Stuck with the choices of “Earth” or “Going off to die in a vacuum,” they have to go back and actually deal with Godzilla.
Godzilla: Monster Planet comes to theaters in Japan this November, followed by an international release on Netflix.
Netflix’s newest entry into the MCU is the forthcoming The Punisher series. And while we’ve gotten a couple of trailers, there have been some concerns that the streaming service would delay the show’s release in the wake of one of the largest mass shootings in American history (which did prompt the cancellation of the show’s panel at New York Comic Con).
Well, it looks like Netflix is marching forward, releasing another trailer for the show and finally giving us a solid date for when the first season will be released: November 17th.
Honestly, it’s a Punisher series. As long as this country continues it’s ongoing problems with gun violence, there probably won’t ever be a tasteful time to release a show about a white guy with an arsenal who shoots lots of people. It’s one of the reasons I’ve never been too fond of the character. Based on their track record though, Netflix is capable of putting enough nuance in the series where I’m more than willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.
I guess we’ll all find out when The Punisher comes out in a month.
The first trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther wowed us with its visuals, but gave very little away about the film’s contents. Yesterday, a new trailer dropped for the film though, and it gives a way a lot more.
We won’t explain too much (since you might be avoiding spoilers), but this time around we get a good look at both of the film’s main antagonists. Honestly this whole thing just looks really cool, and is exactly the kind of film we need right now.
The second season of Netflix’s surprised hit of 2016, Stranger Things, is coming in just a couple of weeks, and the streaming service has now put out a final trailer. There’s so much in there, and we don’t like to unpack things in detail (so you can enjoy them for yourself) — but boy does it look neat.
While the previous trailer set a phenomenal (and fun) tone for the series, this one’s a lot darker. It also gives you way more information than the first one – so people who like to go in blind may just want to hold off until the show comes out.
I mean, you won’t have to wait long.
Stranger Things season 2 premieres October 27, 2017.
