The Full Length ‘Ant Man’ Trailer is Here

So, Ant Man is totally coming this summer, ready or not. It’s the finale to the Phase II of Marvel films, and… well… it actually is looking better every day. Today Marvel released the full length trailer for the film, and I think it fits the tone of the existing Marvel universe while also highlighting the lighter feel of the film compared to, say, the Daredevil series.

Also, with Ant Man, it’ll be nice to get a way from New York. Too much stuff happens in Marvel’s New York.


The Full ‘Daredevil’ Teaser Is Here

The Daredevil series hits Netflix on April 10th, and I couldn’t be more excited. Today, Marvel released their first “full length teaser” for the series, which establishes that the tone for the series will be very different than what we’ve already seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe… and that’s a good thing.

So check out your minute and a half of the man without fear. It’s pretty neat.

Throwback Thursday: 3DO to Go – Escape From Monster Manor

Hey, we’re doing Throwback Thursday this week! That’s good, or something. Anyway, in this installment’s blatant recycling of old pre-Nerd & Tie content, we return to 3DO to Go, my 3DO video game review show. This week’s experiment? Escape From Monster Manor.

In the video you’ll notice I randomly pick a developer’s name out of the credits and declare “I’m going to get you, Stefan Henry-Biskup!” Well, eventually he watched the video… and agreed with my review.

Stefan Henry-Biskup seems like a cool dude.

The First ‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer is Here

So I’m not sure what I was expecting with the new Fantastic Four trailer. I mean, whether the film ends up being good or bad, I knew the trailer would probably impress me. When you have a lot of money, it’s not hard to toss together a beautiful advertisement. I’m not sure though that I expected the trailer to focus on the science aspect in something that almost feels like the early ads for Interstellar.

In any case, if you feel like getting yourself hyped for a film that at least sports a brilliant cast, here it is:

A New “Avengers: Age of Ultron” Trailer Is Here

So I could say a lot of stuff about the new Age of Ultron trailer. I could talk about how it focuses on the Hulk and Black Widow. I could talk about how creepy the use of the Pinocchio “Got no strings” song is. I could talk about how James Spader can add just the right amount of creepiness to his voice.

Or I could just share the trailer with you and you could watch it for yourself.

Yeah, I’ll just do that.

The “Ant-Man” Teaser Trailer is Here

So we’ve known for sure since last week’s “Ant-Size” promo that Marvel was planning on releasing the first teaser trailer for Ant-Man alongside last night’s premiere of Agent Carter. Well, for those of you who missed it (like the people who watch their shows on Hulu the next day… like me), here it is in all its glory.

So sit back, and enjoy Paul Rudd riding a bug.

Yes, that really happens.

Throwback Thursday: Nick Izumi Takes on Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

‘Tis the season for Holiday films with terrible messages, and since Nick nicely took on the Rankin Bass classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer back in 2010, I thought I’d share it in this attempt to revive “Throwback Thursday” on Nerd & Tie.

I swear I’ll be better about posting these, really.

The Two Trailers We’re Excited About (Jurassic World and Star Wars)

So obviously with the holiday this week, we’ve been lagging a bit behind here at Nerd & Tie. But we didn’t want too much to fall by the wayside when two new trailers were out this week for films we’re excited about: Jurassic World (because y’know, Chris Pratt + Dinosaurs) and Episode VII (because, y’know, STAR WARS).

So here you go loyal Nerd & Tie-ians. Enjoy.

Star Wars Episode VII

Jurrassic World

Hobbit Themed Air New Zealand Safety Video is Pretty Epic

Air New Zealand has a new safety video, and they have decided to go Hobbit themed. And I don’t mean just a little – the video features Sylvester McCoy, Elijah Wood and Peter Jackson himself.

And it’s awesome.

I don’t really have much more to say about it besides that, so you may as well just watch the video for yourself:

Throwback Thursday: Nick Izumi Reviews Final Fantasy XIII

Have you ever wanted to watch Nick Izumi review Final Fantasy XIII? Well here’s your chance. Because he reviewed it.

Back in 2010.

But hey, it’s Throwback Thursday, so you’re kind of expecting it. Also, I it would be pretty weird for him to just be getting around to it now, y’know?
