Final ‘Venom’ Trailer

He’s got no food. He’s got no job. He’s biting peoples head off!

We have come a long way from Topher Grace and whatever he was playing in Spider-Man 3. My god, it’s like night and day. That doesn’t mean I am officially sold on Venom yet, but at least they are trying to bring us Venom from the comics. You can tell the effort is there. And sometimes with a movie like this, effort will go a long way.


Yeah I’m sure this will end up with a 29% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but Tom Hardy really is bringing Eddie Brock and Venom to life. This has potential to be the next Fantastic 4, but it could also surprise a lot of people. You can tell the CGI isn’t done yet, but that’s to be expected, the movie isn’t due out for another 4 months. And some of that dialogue – can you say cheese fest? But even with the CGI not being fully completed, some of the visuals are stunning. We have symbiote on symbiote crime here. We get our first look at Riz Ahmed as Riot, the films other symbiote. Who looks like he will be going toe-to-toe with Venom. He’s a fantastic actor and I really hope they don’t water him down and make him a cartoon character come to life.

No signs of Woody Harrelson yet, who is rumoured to be playing Carnage. Maybe they are saving that ace up their sleeve for the movie. Because obviously they want to make this a franchise and be part of something bigger. The movie will not only have to be good, met with some praise, but be financially successful as well. All these things can happen, but I dunno, this has disaster written all over it. That doesn’t mean I’m not excited to watch Venom bite peoples heads off. I still think in order to win over the audience they needed to shoehorn Spider-Man in here somehow. Maybe they will do just that. Because Venom looks menacing as hell, and I would love to see him go up against Tom Holland

Only time well tell he outcome for this potential franchise. But I’m really on the fence. I love Venom, but these trailers just aren’t doing it for me fully.

‘Mid 90s’ Trailer

So somehow Jonah Hill has created a time machine. I guess we can add writer and director to his resume

I’m serious though. This entire trailer doesn’t just look like the 90s, it might have been made in the 90s. The colour grading is so subtle but yet so sublime that it honestly feels like you are flipping through a 90s photo album.

Just when you thought all the trailers dropped this weekend at SDCC, Jonah Hill comes along and drops this Oscar bomb. His directorial debut and add the written honours to it as well. This will certainly be a nostalgia trip down memory lane for so many people and it appears to be an homage to skateboarding.

A coming of age drama, just shouts Oscar material and with Hill behind the camera, next March this certainly will be getting all sorts of recognition. Lucas Hedges is apparently in everything these days, but the remaining cast just looks like the perfect assemble for this movie. Really impressed by this trailer and have insanely high hopes for this one. Getting a real Kids vibe from it, and that movie was bat-shit crazy.

‘Godzilla: King of The Monsters’ Trailer

This is the best movie trailer in a very long time

Saved the best for last


So the world is ending and our only hope is Godzilla. 2014’s Godzilla reboot turned a lot of heads, and rightfully so. Everyone loves Godzilla, he’s awesome, he’s big, he’s mean and he’s ready to mess shit up.

Awake from his slumber, it looks like he might even have a tag team buddy in this next instalment. The breathtakingly beautiful Mothra will be fighting side by side with Godzilla. He’s going to need all the help he can get, because Rodan and King Ghidorah are coming and they are going to bring the pain. There’s a deep roster of CGI monsters and not only that a great cast to boot.

The dark, apocalyptic nuance that this trailer brings is stunning to look at. The visuals in this trailer are some of the best I’ve ever seen. The monster aesthetic is a treat to look at. I’m not even sure how the world is going to survive this one.

But a cast of Millie Bobbie Brown, O’Shea Jackson, Kyle Chandler, Vera Fermiga and Charles Dance are looking to come together to stop the world from ending. We have a family dynamic storyline happening, and Ken Wantabe and Sally Hawkins are back. Hopefully with more to do than simply say “let them fight.”

A packed cast full of monsters and actors. Incredible visuals and the king of all monsters, I don’t think this one is going to disappoint.

Oh yeah, King Kong might even show up. So we have that to look forward to.

‘Aquaman’ Looks Stunning

The world will finally now see Aquaman can more than just talk to fish. Also Black Manta for the win.

Everyone. Say hello to Black Manta. The coolest villain not named Joker in the DC universe. Get use to him because he’s going to be around for a long time to come. Just so we are clear. You will learn to love him as much as I do, and you’ll soon understand why he’s one of the biggest badasses in all of comics.

Just needed to get that out of the way first. HOLY SHIT!!! James Wan, just when you thought the DCEU was down and out. Boom Shazam trailer than this breathtaking, underwater spectacle gets dropped in our laps. The world has been waiting for this, it’s finally here and I have water in my eyes. Aquaman truly doesn’t deserve us. Years of insults, and thinking he’s weak. Now the world will know.

Again Geoff Johns reinvented this character in the New 52. Currently rereading his masterpiece and boy this movie looks like his story ripped from the comics. Aquaman, Mera, Orm, Black Manta. All the big players are here and it’s time for Aquaman to take back his throne. Orm played by Patrick Wilson is Aquaman’s half brother and he wants to take the surface by storm. It will be up to Aquaman and Mera to take back Atlantis and make sure all is right in the seven seas.

Star Wars under water? Something along those lines right? It’s just incredible. So happy for everyone involved and more importantly us fans. We never gave up on you DC!

‘Shazam’ Trailer Hits

This looks like a laugh a minute. Tons of heart. With the right bit of edge. DC crushed it.

What happens when a 10 year old becomes a Superhero? Well Shazam wants to tell that story the world.

David F. Sandberg is about the tell the story of Billy Batson. The unexpected kid who happens to become a real life Superhero. Shazam is a great story and a terrific character, and I’m so glad that DC is telling it to the world. A lesser known DC hero, when compared to Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman he is considered second tier.

When DC comics reinvented themselves with the New 52, Geoff Johns tackled Shazam’s origin and it blew up. He reintroduced this character in a way that no one had seen before. DC jumped on the opportunity to make this movie and he’s know a frequent member of the Justice League. He’s a hero, with the heart of a child. And what better person to play and represent this than Zachary Levi himself. Talk about a home-run.

Being part of the Justice League means we will see him interact with Batman and Superman at some point. And from what we just saw in this trailer, that is shaping up to be something unique. I’m really hoping Superman makes a cameo in this, maybe to teach Billy how to use his powers.

There’s one last thing. Shazam’s arch-nemesis is Black Adam and that role is being filled by none other than Dwayne Johnson. You heard it right. He’s joining the DCEU and first up will be Shazam.

This trailer blew my expectations out of the water. They nailed the tone and style down perfectly. Congrats to Zachary Levi, because no one thought this was possible.

New ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Sequel Trailer

Johnny Depp legit just ruins everything now.

I remember going into the first Fantastic Beasts and being pleasantly surprised. Going back to the world of magic and muggles and all things in-between was incredible. Then towards the end of the movie Colin Farrell’s character morphed into Johnny Depp and well, my jaw hit the floor. Not because I was shocked, not because I was happy, because it flat out ruined the movie. Yeah 90’s Depp was awesome, but now, he’s just Johnny Depp. He’s no longer an actor. Okay, it didn’t ruin the movie completely but I can’t believe they did Colin dirty like that, he was fine in this role and I think he was better suited for the role.

So now we have the upcoming sequel which predominantly features Depp and all I see is Johnny. It’s hard to see him as anything else these days, and I don’t know how I can possibly sit through this movie. It appears to be darker in tone and have way more magic, both great things. Jude Law is playing a younger Dumbledore which seems all too perfect. I can’t wait to go back to this world again, it’s just a shame we have to put up with Johnny Depp in the mean time.

The trailer is pretty fantastic, no pun intended. These new characters especially Newt are a nice additional to an already packed universe. It makes me want venture back to this world again and again. Check it out and see for yourself!

‘Glass’ Trailer Preview

First name Mister, last name Glass

MV5BNjc5OTk0ODA1OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTkxNDM5NTM@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,1617,1000_AL_.jpg

First Unbreakable, then came Split. Now we are getting an end to M. Night Shyamalan’s epic Superhero trilogy. Who knew when Unbreakable first came out, about 20 years ago that it would all lead to this? M. Night has gone on to prove that he’s still got it and could create one of the best Superhero trilogies of all time. Now that the trailer just dropped at SDCC, it appears that Glass is going to be an incredible finish.

Everyone is back, David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) and psycho of the year Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy). The trailer is a bit mysterious, but Crumb is back to his old ways and has kidnapped some girls for the beast to feast on. David accidentally bumps into one of Kevin’s 24 personalities on the stress, which turns into a race against the clock to save the captured girls. Mr. Glass is also trying to use Kevin to his advantage and cause more problems for David.

Everything about the trailer is spectacular, the cinematography, the visuals, the cast. This is going to be such a wonderful treat, and knowing M. Night we don’t even know the half of what we are going to witness next year. Twists will happen, and with him, always, expect the unexpected. Personally I believe Unbreakable is Samuel L. Jackson’s greatest performance because it’s just so far out of his comfort zone. I can’t wait to see him dive back into this character and see how much he has evolved. M. Night was making gritty, dark and serious superhero movies before it was even cool to do so, Unbreakable doesn’t nearly get the credit it deserves.

Check out the Glass SDCC trailer below!

Brand New ‘The Predator ‘ Trailer Hits

Just throwing this out there. That jacked Predator you see. Well it’s been cross bred with Arnold’s DNA.

Well this is interesting. I can’t figure out if this is going to be the worst thing of 2018 or not. For the life of me I cannot get a good read on these trailers that Shane Black, the director has been dishing out. The trailers are very cut and dry and extremely quick edited.

I recently watched the newest Jurassic World (review soon) and I feel like this is just so similar. Why do we need another bigger, badder Predator? It doesn’t make any sense. Why are you trying to reinvent the wheel, that isn’t what made the franchise successful in the first place. I know you can’t keep doing the same thing over and over again, but drifting so far from what made you successful doesn’t make sense to me. I like the cast, and some of the cheesy dialogue, well that kind of is the whole idea of the Predator franchise. So I’m okay with some of the one-liners throughout the trailer. The cast is stacked, and it appears that they all had a ton of fun making this thing, I just want it to translate well onto the big screen.

So instead of getting Arnold back in the flesh, I sense part of him is in that Predator, and if that happens, well I should just write movies myself.

Check ya later.

‘Creed 2’ Trailer

DRAAAAAGOOOOOO!

trailer-for-creed-ii

I’m not going to take all the credit for this movie, but I did know exactly where this franchise was going after Creed dropped in theatres. So here we are, 3 years later and Creed is still boxing, but something from his past is coming back. That’s right, Ivan Drago and his son Viktor want a piece of the Apollo’s son.

I’m not saying this is absolute genius bringing back the Drago family, because it will have be done in the perfect manner in order for it to translate onto the big screen. It’s crazy to think, that when most people think of the Rocky franchise, usually their mind goes to Ivan Drago. So bringing him back to finally confront Rock himself, could be fireworks before our eyes.

Now the biggest problem for the film, Ryan Coogler isn’t returning to direct. He did help write some of this film, but that is my biggest concern. He wanted to make Creed for the longest time, it was a passion project for him, so him not bringing that same passion could be a problem for the sequel. Steven Caple Jr. is taking over and I hope he’s ready to fill some pretty big shoes. All the other party members involved are so passionate and love this franchise that I’m not to concerned about the director change. I thought the trailer looked great, but Ivan himself was missing, which was a problem for me. Still can’t wait to see this, I love this universe so damn much.

Live Action ‘Dumbo’ Trailer

You would think, an elephant with giant ears would terrify kids.

So the ultimate creep that is Tim Burton is brining Dumbo to life. As per usual he didn’t disappoint on the creepiness factor. In fact, I can’t believe they are doing this story in live action because it’s so insane. Clearly it will probably differ vastly from the animated version we are all used to, but still.

Where are my talking crows at? You’re not going to show them off in the teaser trailer? I think they dropped the ball on that end. And how about his little mouse friend? These are things I want to see and make sure are going to be present in this adaptation.

The cast looks great, the visuals are simply stunning, Disney is going to pump out smash hit after smash hit with these live action adaptations. It’s still so far away yet it looks this visually stunning, just means this promises to be quite the spectacle.

Check out the trailer below and see for yourself.
