‘The Little Things’ Trailer

Denzel Washington solving things? Sign me up!

In a world where theatres are probably closed for the foreseeable future, have no fear, Denzel is here! January, known as the driest movie month of the entire year, but things could change. The movie landscape for right now is up on its head. Enter The Little Things.

Two cops tracking down a serial killer. One of whom is no longer a detective and the other is on the up and up. Sounds a tad familiar doesn’t it? If this trailer didn’t give you all sorts of Se7en vibes I don’t know what to tell you.

Denzel. Rami Malek and Jared Leto? This is a powerful cast, so instantly I am intrigued. Whenever Denzel plays a roll like this, it’s in the must watch category.

The trailer is creepy, Jared Leto is on another planet throughout the trailer and clearly everything isn’t as it seems. This one promises to have a great twist and if not, you can bet your ass we will be getting some knockout performances. Could be the first great movie of 2021. We shall see!

Disney+ Just Unleashed A Lot.

From Buzz LightYear, to the Little Mermaid. Disney just unloaded so much content for the fans, it’s a little overwhelming to say the least.

This is not a drill! Dug is back! The worlds best dog and my favourite animated character of all time is getting his own adorable TV Show on Disney+.

But besides Dug returning and Darth Vader and about a million more characters, today Disney decided to show us what we can expect for years to come in terms of future content. Animated shows, movies, new Star Wars shows, sports documentaries, anything you can think of, Disney+ is doing it.

When it comes to Disney, there are two properties that bring the boys to the yard, and it’s Star Wars and Marvel. We got news of about half a dozen future Star Wars shows, after the immense success of Mandalorian, with even two characters getting their very own spin-off show. We got news that Patty Jenkins, director of Wonder Woman will be directing the next big Star Wars movie, Rogue Squadron! Massive news Patty J earning the respect she deserves and she’s going from one gigantic property to another. But that was just news, the fans always want content! Enter the MCU.

Kevin Feige decided to bring the goods, announcing some new things that we can expect down the line. The man never comes unprepared and not willing to tease us a little bit. We got 3 brand new trailers for the MCU shows coming to Disney+.

WandaVision Trailer!

This show looks bonkers. Two of the more interesting characters the MCU has to offer. With by far the weirdest relationship. WandaVision is going to tackle the mental side of our characters. If it lends itself from the comics, we could see Wanda being pregnant maybe even giving birth in the show. I have no idea what to expect, I don’t even know if any of this will be real. Part of me thinks, this is what Wanda will think about after she gets snapped at the end of Infinity War. That’s just speculation, but she’s powerful enough that maybe she can shift her mind elsewhere while the snapped happened. Seeing how we know how things end with Vision and he can’t possibly be alive, he’s no long gone. This looks promising and I can’t wait.

Loki

He’s back! Everyone’s favourite MCU villain is returning. When you watched Infinity War you would of never guessed Loki was getting his own TV series. But here we are! I say that, because the thing that worries me the most about this show. The fact they are essentially erasing all of Loki’s character development from Thor 2 & 3 and what transpires in Infinity War really bothers me. He’s a fantastic character, but it was due to all of the character building and relationship he built with Thor. So how the reckon that will be interesting, it’s the same thing with Gamora actually. The show itself looks interesting, if you watch closely, was that a Black Widow cameo at one point? Owen Wilson and Tom Hiddleston look like the perfect pairing. Again, super intrigued by the premise and curious to see how they pull this one off. Get Doctor Strange to show Loki is alternative timeline and speed his ass up to date. We need him and Thor to be besties again.

Falcon & The Winter Soldier

After all these shows were announced, this was the one I was most looking forward to. After watching the Mandolrian for two seasons, it’s pretty obvious that Disney is sparing no expense when it comes to production quality and value for these shows. You can tell by just the last 15 seconds of this trailer alone. These are two terrific characters that have excellent chemistry. They kick a lot of ass so I’m expecting big things from this show and I know that it’s going to be well executed. Will we see Sam finally take up the mantle of the shield or is that something the MCU wants to have done in a movie? Only time will tell, but this promises to be a ton of fun and I’m sure both of these characters will only grow in this show and start to bare a ton more responsibility when it comes to the Avengers.

What a day folks!!!!

‘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.

EgEVfxVWAAAzNl_

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.
