‘The Batman Trailer Is God Like’

Matt Reeves and Robert Pattison have teamed up to perhaps give us one of the best comic-book movie trailers I’ve ever seen. The Batman is going to be special, and maybe the best Batman movie ever made.

I’m not going to panic, or go into over-reaction mode. But let’s have some fun with it! DCFanDome just ended and it truly ended with a bang. Matt Reeves gives a tease at what to expect from his up-coming Batman flick. What a trailer!

A couple things to note. They have only shot about 25-30% of the movie because of Covid-19. So this is impressive that we even got this much. From what we did get, we got our first look at, well, a lot. Gotham City, Commissioner Gordon played by the great Jeffery Wright. We get a look, not in his iconic green suit, well not yet, The Ridder (Paul Dano). He’s the guy taping up and murdering people. Zoe Kravitz is here as Catwoman and she looks incredible. Her and the main man himself, The Batman even share a little fight scene together. Boy, do we get along good look at all the glory that is Robert Pattison as the Batman. I even think we get a glimpse of Colin Farrell has The Penguin who is unrecognizable!

It’s his second year fighting crime in Gotham City and he’s on the hunt to find someone who is murdering citizens of Gotham. We get a real sense of his detective skills as Matt Reeves pointed out in the panel. It will be a major focal point of the movie. Which is amazing because that has never really been fleshed out in a Batman movie, and it’s something that every Batman fan has wanted to see. He’s still new to the world of being a superhero and Matt Reeves has said that Batman is still learning and making mistakes and trying to be the hero that Gotham needs. He’s dark, he’s broody and he’s beating the shit out of criminals. This is going to be so unique, but it feels so grounded at the same time. Reeves really tapped into something here and Pattinson has done wonderful things here. He’s voice is damn-near perfect. The suit is gorgeous and the batmobile is unlike anything we’ve seen yet!

I’m so excited for this film, I can’t wait to see the finished product. I want to write more and might do so later, but right now I’m going to watch this another 10 times. ENJOY!!!

‘First SnyderCut Justice League Trailer Arrives’

It’s been a long journey, but the first official SnyderCut footage for Justice League is here and fans couldn’t be happier.

Darksid

2016. That’s when Zack Snyder started shooting this movie. Isn’t that just kind of insane? That this has actually been a winding road, with so many ups and downs. The kind of trip that feels like it’s taking forever, but once you have arrived at your destination, everything that has come before it, it was all worth it. Well that’s exactly how fans are feeling right now.

The big boy above, that’s Darkseid, learn that name, and learn to fear it. That’s the big baddie of the DC universe and he’s coming for Earth and the Justice League are the only people that can stop him. Separated, they stand now chance, but united, they can accomplish anything. Yes, we got a Justice League movie in 2017, and I guess if you aren’t hardcore into movies, you wouldn’t know that there was so much drama and behind the scenes nonsense that went on, we ultimately got a version of the movie, that wasn’t even close to Zack’s original vision.

Well, here we are, at DC FanDome where they just released a new trailer for a movie that was released 3 years ago. Crazy world we live in, but this time its the right movie being promoted, and it feels just bittersweet. There’s a ton of new footage, and everything feels more Snyder. Whether you like that or not, that’s up to you. For me, I love it and I can’t wait for the 4 hour long event on HBO Max next year.

I’m sure along the way Zack like always will gift us with more trailers and surprises but until then, enjoy the trailer and be happy for the man who gets to finally see his vision come to life!

‘Second Wonder Woman Trailer Drops’

It’s a big day for movies. DC FanDome has kicked off and it started with a bang. The newest trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 is out and we finally got our first look at Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah!

img_0232

What a start to a terrific day! It’s been a while since we have gotten any sort of DC movie news. But this past week has been chock-full of goodies. Yes, Wonder Woman was already supposed to come out, but things change so instead we get this brand new trailer and everything seems right in the world!

We pick up in 1984, and the world is drastically different from the last time we saw Diana Prince. It’s the 80’s and everything is much more colorful, but that doesn’t mean that all the bad is gone in the world. This time around she will be taking down both Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and none other than her arch-nemesis The Cheetah (Kristen Wiig). I was excited about this trailer, mainly due to the fact that I knew we would be getting our first look at Cheetah in all of her glory and she didn’t disappoint. They are going toe-to-toe at the end of the trailer and it looks great! Chris Pine is back as the love interest Steve Trevor and he appears very confused and excited about the 80’s lifestyle. He’s brought back into her life under some weird circumstances and I’m sure that will come to a not so happy ending, but only time will tell. It’s bright, it’s funny and everyone seems like they are having fun. Wonder Woman is the heart and the soul of the Justice League and Gal does such a great job encompassing both of those traits.

Director Patty Jenkins is still unsure when we will see this enter theatres with everything going on with Covid-19, but expect news soon and in the meantime enjoy the trailer below!

It’s happening. Ben Affleck is Putting On The Cowl Again.

He was known as the Batfleck and now he literally is back-fleck.

Ben Affleck as Batman in Justice League

Well the internet was kind of broken today. It’s finally confirmed. It’s actually happening, something personally I thought couldn’t happen is taking place. Ben Affleck is going to play Batman in another movie. No it’s not in his own standalone movie or in a sequel to Justice League. But rather in the up-coming Flash movie. Director Andy Muschietti announced it today that Affleck would return in a “cameo” type role for his upcoming superhero flick.

It’s already been reported that none other than Michael Keaton himself is also reprising his role as the Cape Crusader, but this is just shaping up to be something special. Affleck is back in a positive place, and feels like he’s up for playing this character again. We will see more of him once Zack Snyder’s Justice League is released but this could be the farewell that he wants to give fans. Or it’s a door that will remain open for him to continue to wear the cowl in other projects.

There is an iconic scene that takes place between Barry and Bruce and I believe this is the exact scene that Ben will comeback for and it will be very bittersweet.

This all came before the big day ahead on Saturday when DC Fandome takes place. Expect more news and plenty of other goodies!

Feels good to be blogging again.

‘Judas & The Black Messiah’ Trailer

Buckle up for this powerful retelling of Fred Hampton, the Chairman of the Black Panthers of Illinois, and how he is betrayed by one of his own, who becomes an informant for the FBI.

Daniel-Kaluuya-in-Judas-and-the-Black-Messiah-Trailer

It’s been months and months of very little movie trailers that have really caught my eye. Then this little gem drops yesterday and a couple of things crossed my mind. First, how much I miss going to the movies, and just having new trailers and movies in my life. Secondly, you can pretty much lock it in that Daniel Kaluuya will be nominated for an Oscar, and from this 2 minutes of footage, might be in the driver’s seat for taking home the gold. The world owes him for the Get Out mess up.

This is just a quality movie trailer, powerful, well-edited, and just gives us an idea of what to expect. Strong and emotional performances across the board. Kaluuya isn’t the only one throwing 100 in this thing. LaKeith Stanfield and Jesse Plemons are also giving us solid performances. You can bet your bottom dollar that one of these two will also nab an Oscar nod.

Just it’s so hard to discuss movies right now, because who knows when it will actually arrive to theatres, so you can get excited for something, only for it to be delayed a handful of times and then perhaps get buried in a slew of other major releases. But this is going to be special and come award seasons, this movie will be taking home a ton of gold.

See for yourselves!

Sneak Peek At Zack Snyder’s Justice League

We get our first tiny peek behind the curtain of Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League. In a tease that shows that he’s bringing DC’a big guns to the battle.

When it was announced last month that HBO Max would be releasing Snyder’s cut of Justice League fans united all over the world. As the once promised movie was broken down piece by piece until what we ended up getting was nothing short of a tire fire. Now, what will be 4 years later, his vision is finally coming to life and we couldn’t be happier.

So today Jason Momoa dropped maybe a little ahead of schedule the first glance at Gal Gadot staring at what appears to be some sort of hieroglyphics of none other that DCs big baddie Darkseid! We even got our first glance at the man himself.

This is a small tease but still exciting news. Expect a full trailer on August 22nd when DC unveils DC Fandom a 24 hour immersive online experience for fans.

New ‘Tenet’ Trailer Drops

Christopher Nolan is doing everything in his power to make sure his newest movie, Tenet, gets that July release date. After seeing this trailer, I don’t blame him. Who’s got a hazmat suit I can borrow?

EYlWd4yXYAEooHN

Anyone else a little lost? If you’re not, then you are a certified genius because this trailer is the definition of a mind freak. It’s not time travel, it’s time inversion, whatever the hell that means. It appears from the trailer that certain characters are going to be able to manipulate time with ordinary objects.

Does it even matter? We get to watch Robert Pattison, notice the cutaway after the “Dark Knight Trilogy” was on our boy! Alongside him, John David Washington, they have fantastic chemistry in this trailer, are playing secret agents of sorts, and Washington is the one capable of time manipulation among the pair. Time moves one way, while people move in the other, a neat concept at its core and even more satisfying to watch unfold. The bigger picture is hush at the moment, Nolan doesn’t like to give too much away in his trailers and you can expect some serious head turns along the way.

Nolan is the master of taking some sort of concept and shaping it into a spectacle on the big screen. Whether it was inside the mind with Inception, or conquering space in Interstellar. Now he is tackling time, Christ at this point he is just collecting the infinity stones himself. This looks to be one of the most original movies we have seen in a long time, and tonight Washington himself said that this film with dictate the next 10-15 years of the cinema landscape. Which happened not too long ago, when Nolan changed the game with The Dark Knight. Nolan is a craftsman and loves to explore boundaries that not too many film-makers are willing to explore and it usually makes for a fantastic product.

Now the big question is, when will this be released. Set to hit theatres on July 17th, but with COVID and safety measures in place, that isn’t set in stone. Regardless, this will surely be a box-office success and if it is the first big new release when we are able to go back to the movies, this could rule the box-office for months. Everything else has been pushed back drastically and WB and Nolan could take full advantage of that.

‘Da 5 Bloods’ Trailer

Spike Lee is back and this time he’s heading into the Vietnam War

EYTX9hvU8AAQ68d

Doesn’t it feel good to watch a real movie trailer again? It feels like it’s been forever since the world has gotten to watch a fantastic trailer and it’s no surprise it comes from the man Spike Lee. This of course is his follow-up to his Oscar-winning flick BlacKKKlansman, and he once again sets the bar extremely high with this overall impressive trailer.

Da 5 Bloods will tell the story of veterans from the Vietnam War as they look to reclaim some buried gold and battle their inner demons all while trying to honor their fallen comrade. From the different aspect ratios, the flashbacks, the back and forth between past and present, the editing alone in this has Oscar nomination written all over it. Throw in an ensemble cast that is equally as impressive that circles around Chadwick Boseman who is playing “the greatest soldier who ever lived.”

With Spike Lee at the helm you know that there will be all sorts of great race relations messages and a big heart at the center of the film. He loves to educate his audience with every single film he makes and isn’t afraid to tackle important issues within society today. That’s what makes him such an extraordinary film-maker. This is the first movie that feels robbed that we won’t be able to see it on the big screen, as it’s coming to Netflix next month. War movies always work better with better sound and a bigger screen. Regardless, this looks like another great Spike film, that a lot of people will be watching when it eventually does hit Netflix.

‘The Green Knight’ Trailer

Strap in for this re-imagining of the story of Sir Gawain and the Green King by director David Lowery in this impressive debut trailer.


So this trailer just kind of came out of nowhere and blew us away? Giants, Kings and foxes oh my. From David Lowery director A Ghost Story, comes this fantasy world where the things aren’t quite quote on quote, normal.

Dev Patal stars as Gawain, King Arthur’s nephew and one of his Knights of the Round Table. It looks like the film centres around his story and how he potentially becomes King? Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton and Sean Harris fill out this lovely cast.

The cinematography is stunning, with some crazy imagery that leaves you wanting more. Some mysterious looking shots that leave you questioning exactly what is going to happen.

The Green King just shot up the leader board for most anticipated. This looks original, beautiful and more importantly really well acted.

‘The French Dispatch’ Trailer Arrives!

Hop into the wonderful mind of Wes Anderson once again, as his latest film looks as zany as ever.


You’ll need to watch this trailer multiple times for multiple reasons. First and foremost to truly get a grasp on what the heck is actually going on and secondly to count the number of famous faces you can spot. Both great reasons to watch this delightful little trailer again. We all know that Wes Anderson has a certain style and flare to his work. His craft is unique and truly stands on its own and The French Dispatch seems no different.

This is a smorgasbord of talent. They even had a nice joke when referring to the amount of people that will ultimately pop up in the movie. Most importantly Bill Murray of course! It looks like a whole lot of interconnecting stories that centres around a love letter to journalists.

The trailer was a ton of fun, it’s just so refreshing seeing his new work, because of how it stands out so much and so much on its own. Whenever Wes Anderson makes a movie you expect his cast to be diverse and deep. That’s what usually makes his movies so entertaining, you get to see all these actors who probably under any other circumstance wouldn’t be sharing the screen together. But somehow he manages to get them all in the same movie. Wes always manages to get the best out of people, even if they only have one scene. Expect this to make some noise next year at the Oscars.
