‘Bullet Train’ Trailer

Brad Pitt is on a high speed train confronting all sorts of deadly assassins in a game of cat and mouse. Count me all the way in.

Bullet Train (2022) - IMDb

Sometimes you watch a trailer and realize 30 seconds in that you’ll be there opening weekend. This movie kind of has it all. Star power, stylish action and a premise that certainly never fails in Hollywood. A group of assassins in close quarters fighting amongst one other is always a recipe for success.

Directed by the action heavy David Leitch who is always trying to one up himself with each new movie. He certainly is bringing in a star-studded cast to hunt each other down. Pitt seems perfect for this kind of movie, he’s a complete bad ass but also seems like a sweet heart. I’m going to kill you but I don’t want to do it kind of guy.

This is just a small taste of whats to come for Bullet Train, guns, fists and swords? It’s just going to be straight up cool, a unique movie in it’s own right. It shoots up the list of my most anticipated that’s for sure.

Miss seeing Brad Pitt in movies and the fact we will see him like never before is the only excuse I need to go see this movie.

‘Nope’ Trailer Hits

We are all the same page right? Nope means, Not. Of. Planet. Earth.

Image

There are directors, and then there are film-makers. That craft things that entice and unite movie fans around the globe. Jordan Peele is one of those selected few now. He brought the world to its knees with Get Out, and promised us that he was just getting started. Now he’s telling an alien story? This is one of the better teaser trailers or recent memory. Can always count on him to blend comedy and horror with a little remixed hip-hop music in the background.

Without a doubt, this has the best ending shot from a trailer in recent memory. Keke Palmer getting sucked into the sky, but it some how just feels terrifying. Peele is also reuniting with Get Out star Daniel Kaluuya and this appears to be his most ambitious film yet. Steven Yeun is also joining the ranks, and he seems to be playing the ring leader at some crazy tourist attraction, which I’ll talk about in a few seconds.

You know nothing is ever as it seems with Peele and his movies, but from the look of things, either aliens are on earth living among us, and they have been turned into somewhat of a tourist attraction kind of thing. Think a circus but with alien lifeforms and their kind is coming to earth for either revenge or to bring their babies home. You can catch glimpses of weird things and people throughout the trailer, and maybe it’s them who’s opening this gigantic portal in the sky. That’s just my guess, and seeing how this is a Jordan Peele flick, I’m going to be way off, but that’s the feeling I’m getting from the first few watches of the trailer.

What a summer event this is going to be.

First Trailer For ‘Halo’ TV Series Hits

Move over Mandalorian there’s a new Chief in town.

Halo' TV series heads to Paramount+ on March 24th | Engadget

Okay, if you told someone a TV Series based on the widely popular video game series Halo was to come out. You wouldn’t ask for Master Chief to look much better than that. It’s a spitting mirror image of the iconic suit that has been in our lives for almost 20 years now.

This show feels very Mandalorian if you ask me. The quality of the show looks great, nothing cheap about it. From the little we saw, you couldn’t really ask for much else with footage that we got. Having never played a single Halo game, I’m not sure what this show will explore. The origins of Master Chief? Will it be based off the actual story lines of the first game? I’m not really sure. What I do know, is that this appears to be an interesting science fiction television series that promises action as well as intrigue.

He’s one of the coolest video game characters in recent memory, and played by the great Pablo Schreiber, and when I said it feels very Mandalorian, because even though they got this great actor to be behind the helmet, I don’t think we will actually get to see his face in the show. It’s just the vibe I’m getting and I think that’s a great concept.

The show is dropping soon, and let’s see how it goes. This could be a steaming pile of garbage. The track record for movies and television shows based off video games is not great. But this could be the start of a new trend. With The Last of Us dropping layer this year, 2022 could serve as the launching pad for a wave of great properties based off video games. I have faith!

My Most Anticipated Movies of 2022

If anything, 2022 promises to be one of the biggest years in the history of cinema. It’s primed to have arguably the biggest box-office year ever with some gigantic films on the horizon. So I’m running through the films that I can not wait to see this year.

2022 Movies: The 58 Biggest Movies We Can't Wait to See - IGN

We are going in chronological order here. Any movie that I didn’t do a little trailer post for I will attach the trailer with it! Over twenty movies on this list, so strap in, going to be one hell of a year!

Scream. Release Date: January 14th, 2022. Director: Matt Bettinelli-Olpin & Tyler Gillet.

Everything We Know About SCREAM (2022) - NerdistTwenty-five years after the original series of murders in Woodsboro, a new killer emerges, and Sidney Prescott must return to uncover the truth.

Any time Ghostface shows up on screen you can count me in. One of the best horror movie franchises returns this year and it’s shaping up to be the best sequel yet. From the trailers, this just feels like it’s heading back to its roots and very less meta. “It’s always someone you know.” That’s the tagline for the upcoming flick and fans and even the cast alike are wondering just who on earth is behind that mask? It could be anyone and there are all sorts of theories floating around, but I think it will be some of the new blood rather than one of the OG’s returning. A great way to kick off 2022, because Scream truly promises to be one of the best slashers in recent memory.

Morbius. Release Date: January 28th, 2022. Director: Daniel Espinosa.Morbius has 'some form of bat radar' in the first trailer in two years - The VergeBiochemist Michael Morbius tries to cure himself of a rare blood disease, but he inadvertently infects himself with a form of vampirism instead.

2022 has an insane amount of comic book movies and I’m here for every single one. Okay, this might end up being the weakest of the bunch, but I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve seen so far from Morbius. One of the main reasons I’m excited and I’m sure others are, the fact that this is going to belong to some sort of shared universe. Whether he confronts Tom Hollands Spider-Man or perhaps Andrew Garfield, it’s complicated but I’m sure this movie will have one hell of a stinger at the end of the credits. Maybe Venom shows up? Who knows but that excitement is just enough to have me seeing Morbius opening weekend and why it’s on this list.

The Batman. Release Date: March 4th, 2022. Director: Matt Reeves.

In his second year of fighting crime, Batman uncovers corruption in Gotham City that connects to his own family while facing a serial killer known as the Riddler.

The Batman the granddaddy of them all. The best movie of 2022 is approaching fast. Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson the unlikely duo are about to deliver one of the best comic book movies of all time. Who would have guessed that, if you asked someone 5-6 years ago, someone would have laughed in your face. But here we are, a few short months away from the release and every single thing we have seen from this movie has been nothing short of amazing. From the tone, to the aesthetics of Gotham City, to the brilliant performances from both Pattison and Kravitz. This is my most anticipated movie in perhaps forever, I simply can not wait to watch this movie about 6 times in the first few days of its release. Masterpiece incoming folks.

Pixar’s Turning Red. Release Date: March 11th, 2022. Director: Domee Shi

Turning Red (2022) - IMDb

A 13-year-old girl named Mei Lee turns into a giant red panda whenever she gets too excited.

I’m not lying when I say that this movie has had some of the best trailers of the past year. This looks so cute and hilarious and well it takes place in my neighbourhood of Toronto. The whole premise is so funny and the animation is so stylish and awesome to look at. With some amazing voice casting work and beautiful animation, Pixar has once again got my interested in a movie. A unique premise and you can’t help but smile every time you see a photo of this giant red panda.

Sonic The Hedgehog 2. Release Date: April 8th, 2022. Director: Jeff Fowler.

Is Knuckles a Bad Guy in 'Sonic the Hedgehog 2'? Here's What We Know

Sequel to the 2020 live-action feature film ‘Sonic the Hedgehog

Sequels are always bigger, bolder and always up the ante. The first Sonic movie didn’t get off to the greatest of starts, but ever since the course correction of the actual look and design of Sonic, things have been going great. Now the sequel is upon us and they are introducing us to his pals. We get both Tails and Knuckles, voiced by none other than Idris Elba, like come on, we are all sold. The design for Knuckles is also incredible and this looks like so much fun. There is so much they can do in with this franchise and bringing in these two iconic and loveable characters is a fantastic start.

Ambulance. Release Date. April 8th, 2022. Director: Michael Bay.

Ambulance (2022) - IMDb

Two robbers steal an ambulance after their heist goes awry.

Michael Bay is back! So we know we are getting over the top explosions, performances and plot lines? Michael Bay is like that awful friend you have in your life that you have no idea why you hang out with them but every single time you do, you end up having an amazing time. Now we are tossing in Jake Gyllenhaal, Yahya Manteen and Eiza Gonzalez into the mix? I know Bay isn’t for everyone, but I certainly love to sit down and turn off my brain and enjoy his movies. I don’t know how he convinces some of the best working talent in Hollywood today to be in his movies, but here we are. This promises to be over the top, cheesy but in all the best ways imaginable. Definition of “Good times at the movies.”

The Northman. Release Date: April 22nd, 2022. Director: Robert Eggers.

The Northman Movie trailer |Teaser Trailer

From acclaimed director Robert Eggers, The Northman is an epic revenge thriller that explores how far a Viking prince will go to seek justice for his murdered father.

This just looks like pure cinema. The follow-up to The Lighthouse, which was one of my favourite movies a few years ago, Robert Eggers is one of the best new film-makers we have today. The scenery, the landscapes, the look and feel of this movie, screams EPIC. Not a single green screen in sight and this is just movie making at its finest. The Northman looks torturous and brutal, the combat looks barbaric and everyone involved is giving it their all. We have directors who can make fine blockbusters, you know a CGI-fest, but there is something about Eggers that lets you know, that true movie making is never going away. The Northman will be special.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Release Date: May 6th, 2022.

: Sam Raimi.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' Teaser Trailer Shows Evil Benedict Cumberbatch

Dr. Stephen Strange casts a forbidden spell that opens the door to the multiverse, including an alternate version of himself, whose threat to humanity is too great for the combined forces of Strange, Wong, and Wanda Maximoff.

Doctor Strange really screwed the pooch when he cast that spell for Peter Parker. The whole universe and multi-verse is all messed up because of that kid and now Strange needs to fix it before everything he knows goes to shit. With a bunch of reshoots and rewrites of the script, no one knows what or who to expect in this. Seeing Tobey and Andrew come back was so emotional and rewarding that I’m sure the MCU wants to cash in on that even more. I’m not saying they will be back for this movie, but some others may pop up who knows. I think this is going to be the true launching pad for Phase 4 of the MCU with the stakes the highest they have ever been and will cement Dr. Strange as the key focal point in the MCU going forward. He could very well be the new leader of the Avengers after this. What I love most about this flick? The OG Sam Raimi of the original Spider-Man trilogy is back. He’s a master of horror as well, so I expect this to be scary and a little suspenseful at times. Don’t forget he has a certain and strong connection with a certain someone……

Top Gun: Maverick. Release Date: May 27th, 2022. Director: Joseph Kosinski.Top Gun: Maverick (2022) - IMDbAfter more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.

FINALLY!!! This movie was suppose to come ago what feels like ages ago. This is the year we get to see Tom Cruise back as Maverick and what a strong young cast he is bringing along with him. Top Gun holds a special place in my heart, it’s a great male bonding movie and just an all around unorthodox action movie. Who knows how they will up the ante for the sequel, but I expect some more shirtless Volleyball and karaoke in the bar. We have had to wait what seems like forever, so I hope this doesn’t fall flat on its face, but from what we have seen so far, this seems like a worthy sequel.

Pixar’s Lightyear. Release Date: June 17th, 2022. Director: Angus MacLane.Pixar releases 'Lightyear' teaser trailer, and Chris Evans is over the moon about it - The Boston GlobeThe story of Buzz Lightyear and his adventures to infinity and beyond.

What people need to know, this isn’t about the toy Buzz Lightyear. This is about the man who the toy was based on! This could very well be the biggest movie of the year. Everyone in the world knows who Buzz Lightyear is and attach Chris Evans to voice him? That’s a recipe for success if you ask me. This is giving me First Man vibes, the Ryan Gosling movie that was released a few years ago, and Pixar is always creating emotional journeys and I’m sure this won’t be any different. The animation is a little more mature here, which I like, because this does give off the sense of a more mature animated film from Pixar. We are going to get the backstory to this beloved character and what made him so special they decided to make a toy based off him. We could very well have just an all time year from Pixar in 2022.

The Black Phone. Release Date: June 24th, 2022. Director: Scott Derrickson.

The Black Phone Poster Introduces a Terrifying Ethan Hawke

After being abducted by a child killer and locked in a soundproof basement, a 13-year-old boy starts receiving calls on a disconnected phone from the killer’s previous victims.

All you needed to show me for this movie is that image above. That’s Ethan Hawke rocking one of the coolest masks I’ve ever seen. One of the best actors playing an absolute psycho path serial killer? We don’t get that very often, so of course I’m excited. Horror movies are a dime a dozen, so when one comes along that truly catches your eye and looks unique and just not your typical hack and slash, I will be invested. The premise seems trippy to say the least, with all sorts of those classic horror elements at play. I’m here for Ethan Hawke, and it looks like he won’t disappoint.

Thor: Love & Thunder. Release Date: July 8th, 2022. Director: Taika Waititi

Thor 4 Merch Reveals Stylish New Love and Thunder Logo for Chris Hemsworth's SequelThe sequel to Thor: Ragnarok and the fourth movie in the Thor saga

This movie is going to pack a serious punch. Going forward, the MCU is going to feel like a mini party with each new outing. It’s just not a solo film anymore. Each movie is going to be like an Avengers Mini. This is a Thor movie, but the Guardians are going to be involved and they are bringing in the big guns, Christian Bale will be playing the films villain, Gorr The God Butcher. Even Natalie Portman is back and this time she’s going to be wielding the hammer and will eventually become the new God of Thunder. Thor Ragnarok is one of the best all around MCU movies, with what seems like the perfect blend of humour and action. They have found the ideal foundation for the character and surrounding Thor with more heroes and a bigger story has only upped his story arc. Crazy we haven’t gotten anything for this movie yet, not even a poster. Could this be the end of Chris Hemsworth’s run as the God of Thunder? Time will tell, but I certainly hope not. He’s one of the strongest parts of the MCU and with Natalie Portman coming back that only adds fuel to his fire, and makes his progression as a character even more intriguing.

Bullet Train. Release Date: July 15th, 2022. Director: David Leitch.

Bullet Train: Release Date for Brad Pitt Film Delayed Until Next SummerFive assassins aboard a fast moving bullet train find out their missions have something in common.

Bullet Train is about to be bonkers. From the man that reinvented the action genre in some sense with John Wick, Atomic Blonde and Deadpool. We now get a star-studded movie about assassins on a train that I’m sure will feature close quarters bat-shit crazy action sequences. Sandra Bullock, Brad Pitt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Zazie Beetz and Michael Shannon, among so many others. This is the kind of movie that flies under the radar until that first trailer drops and it blows everyone away. There’s so much goodness, it seems like there’s something for everyone. The vast cast of characters, the director who knows how to shoot action and a premise that makes you drool upon reading it. This legit could have the best/coolest sequence of any movie this upcoming year – minus The Batman obviously.

Nope. Release Date: July 22nd, 2022. Director: Jordan Peele

Nope | Official Movie Site | July 22, 2022

Nobody and I mean nobody got us more excited to see white folks get killed than Jordan Peele. I can’t even put the plot blurb from IMDB above this paragraph because no one and I mean no one knows a single thing about this movie. Except that it stars the 3 people on the poster above. When Peele followed up Get Out with US the world was waiting for the news of his next project. Well, this is the year. More than likely it will be another psychological horror that will push the boundaries on the genre and Peele will once again try to reinvent this genre in some way shape or form. Can’t really say much, other than how can you not be pumped for another movie from Peele?

Black Adam. Release Date: July 29th, 2022. Director: Jaume Collet-Serra.

Black Adam Opening Scene Teased at DC FanDome by Dwayne Johnson | Entertainment NewsA spin-off from ‘Shazam!’ centering on the film’s anti-hero, Black Adam.

We heard it for years and years. That ‘the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe was about to change.” Dwayne Johnson has been saying it for what feels like a decade. Well, this year we will finally see his Black Adam in action. From the quick glimpse we got of this movie, it does seem it fits more of Zack Synder’s DC Universe than what we currently have been getting. That’s a good thing, because Black Adam is a darker character and I’m happy they are going that route. So much is at stake with this because if it’s successful I see Black Adam popping up in the Shazam sequel the following year, they would be stupid not to do that. But the bigger question will be, who will be Superman when they ultimately throw down? Not even DJ knows, which at this point is mind blowing, I have a good feeling about this movie.

Mission Impossible 7. Release Date: September 30th, 2022. Director: Christopher McQuarrie

The one franchise that some how keeps getting better. It’s like a fine wine, the older it gets the better it tastes. Coming off arguably the best in the entire series, M.I 7, code name still not known, will certainly have big shoes to fill. We know very little, but what we do know is that this franchise is going all the way back to the beginning, to its roots. None other than Henry Czerny who played  Eugene Kittridge in the original Mission Impossible is returning. That leaves a lot of doors to be opened and Ethan Hunt could be confronting something from his past that he certainly is not ready to handle. Cruise has a massive year ahead of himself and I can’t wait to see the just bat-shit crazy stunts he performs in his movies.

Spider-Man Across The Spider-Verse Part 1. Release Date: October 7th, 2022. Director: Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers & Justin K. Thompson

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse' First Trailer: Sony Reveals Part One of Animated SequelMiles Morales returns for the next chapter of the Oscar®-winning Spider-Verse saga, an epic adventure that will transport Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man across the Multiverse to join forces with Gwen Stacy and a new team of Spider-People to face off with a villain more powerful than anything they have ever encountered.

Animation is not messing around in 2022. In fact it’s going to have some of the biggest and best movies of the entire year. This will be no exception. The follow-up to the ever growing in popularity of Spider-Man into the Spider-Verse, a movie that is so good, I can’t even fathom how they plan on topping it. What I do know, they will top it and this promises to truly be something unique, special and full of so much heart. Miles is a bit older, so I expect the maturity level of just not the characters but the material at hand to be upped a bit. Which I’m really looking forward to, the relationship between Miles and Gwen should feel a little more mature this time around. Recruiting even more star power to voice Spider-People, including Oscar Isaac, we have no idea just what is in store for our hero Miles. It could literally be anything, the realm of possibilities is actually endless and that’s what makes this movie so appealing and intriguing to audiences. You don’t know who is going to show up, it could be anyone and the emotional baggage that comes along with this movie is palpable. This is just Part 1 as well, so you know it’s finishing with an all time cliff hanger. I hope we get a really cool animated Venom or Carnage, that’s all I’m saying.

The Flash. Release Date: November 4th, 2022. Director: Andy Muschietti

The Flash' trailer: Ezra Miller teases the multiverse epic we've been waiting for

The Flash is without a doubt one of the bigger stories being told this year. There is a lot on the line for the future of the DCEU with its release. Some are saying it could erase everything Zack Snyder has built, I highly doubt that. Is this the last time we will see Ben Affleck suit up as Batman? We get the return of Michael Keaton. We all know how much nostalgia can bring people together and sell movie tickets. The Flash is a complex character that is bringing a lot to the table for his first ever solo movie. Adding in Sasha Calle as Supergirl and who knows what else, this movie promises to be bold and unpredictable. This could be a game changer for the DCEU and without a doubt the biggest movie to date for the franchise. I love the character and I’m really curious to see where Muschietti takes it. Coming off the IT movies, he proved he can do large ensembles but he lacks certain qualities to make an all around great blockbuster. Fans are certainly divided and only time will tell. WB needs a big box-office year from their movies and this needs to hit home and be a success or the future of the DCEU could go down in flames as we know it.

Black Panther 2: Wakanda Forever. Release Date: November 11th, 2022. Director: Ryan CooglerBlack Panther 2 Receives Promising Letitia Wright Update

The most difficult 2022 movie to talk about. For multiple reasons. First and foremost the tragic passing of Chadwick Boseman and the void that is felt with not only this character of Black Panther, but within the MCU. I think as things ramp up with marketing and promotion the weight of his absence will be felt so tremendously. Secondly, the movie itself has had its fair share of problems. Leititia Wright who plays Shuri who is the person who will most likely be filling in for Chadwick has been causing all sorts of problems on set due to vaccination problems. She is anti-vax and has been causing delays and even making the production to be switch to new locations. Not much is known about the plot or how they will handle the death of Chadwick, but I’m sure it will be handled with grace and care. The first one was revolutionary and I can’t wait to see what Coogler has in store for us next.

I want them to kick Wright to the curb and bring in Michael B Jordan.

Creed III. Release Date: November 23rd, 2022. Director: Michael B Jordan

Creed 3: Release Date, Story Details & News | Screen Rant

I’m not saying right now this is my most anticipated, but after The Batman comes out, I will need to latch onto another movie. I’m thinking it’s going to be Creed III. We have Michael B Jordan stepping into the directors chair, telling us another Adonis story. This time without Sly Stallone because he is officially stepping away from this franchise. Can you believe it? The torch has finally been passed and all eyes will be on MBJ when this movie is released. We all know he will make a great director, he’s been in the industry for so long and has worked with some of the most talented people in the business. Creed I and Creed II were both home runs and it feels like its been FOREVER since we got any Creed news. The only news we have gotten is a dozy, Jonathan Majors who is having himself a year or two is joining the Creed world. Probably playing the films villain, and we are all dying to know who is he. Maybe Clubber Lang has a son………….

Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom. Release Date: December 16th, 2022. Director: James WanAquaman 2: Next DC Film Casts New Villains - IGN

Aquaman is kind of a big deal now eh? Coming off a billion dollar first outing, the King of the Sea is back in action this year and James Wan promises more fun, bigger action, and wants to change the game once again. I can see this movie moving to 2023 because of a movie that I will be doing next, either one of them will move its release date, and it could just come down to a game of chicken. Remember how beautifully bonkers the 3rd act of Aquaman was? I expect nothing short of that this time around, and I feel like everyone involved as only grown as actors since and this will be such a wild ride. Again, we just don’t know what kind of state the DCEU will be in at this time. Does this movie course correct once again, or will they treat this very successful franchise as its own thing? All I know is Jason Momoa was born to play Aquaman and I can’t wait to see what James Wan cooks up next.

Avatar 2. Release Date: December 16th, 2022. Director: James Cameron.Avatar 2 (2022) - IMDb

Jake Sully lives with his newfound family formed on the planet of Pandora. Once a familiar threat returns to finish what was previously started, Jake must work with Neytiri and the army of the Na’vi race to protect their planet.

When you share a release date with James Cameron you move your fucking movie. It’s plain and simple. The man made a movie about a boat and it was the biggest thing this world had ever seen at the time. You can hear it now, people stating how they don’t care about the next Avatar, but sure enough everyone and their Mom will go see this movie. It’s James Cameron, the man is a legend and when he makes a movie, it’s just not a release date, it’s an event. Say what you want about Avatar, but it changed how we viewed movies and what could be done in a technological sense. He’s been working on these next few movies for over a decade, you don’t think this is going to shatter all expectations and blow our minds? Again, it’s James FUCKING Cameron, get on board folks! I can’t wait to see what he has in store for us and what this movie can be. It could literally change how we view movies once again, my god this year is going to be epic.

Looks like I’ll be breaking my record of 62 trips to the movies this year. Giddy up!

New ‘The Batman’ Trailer

The bat and the cat are teaming up to take down The Riddler in the newest trailer for The Batman.

 

Well isn’t this a lovely surprise! A new trailer has just come out of left field and it could honestly be the strongest trailer yet. Without a doubt showcasing the most from the movie, in terms of vibe and actual footage from the movie. Deep dive into the psyche of the The Riddler who seems to not only be testing Batman and Bruce Wayne mentally but physically as well.

Here’s the kicker, Riddler knows who Batman is. That is really going to make this entire movie very interesting. Riddler wants to reveal the troubled past of Bruce’s parents, something that he didn’t know was there. The dynamics between them seems interesting and intense, where the relationship between Bruce and Selina seems muddled and complex.

There’s so much to look at and appreciate with each new trailer that we see. Visuals that will have your jaw drop, and honestly Pattinson looks like he’s going to eat up this role. This whole thing just seems perfect, from the performances to Matt Reeves direction, we have an upcoming masterpiece on our hands.

I simply can not wait.

First ‘Sonic 2’ Trailer

Sonic is back and this time he’s got company.

Image

Knuckles is here folks, and he’s being voiced by none other than Idris Elba himself. I’m sorry but that’s pretty awesome, and you know what? So is this trailer.

The first Sonic movie had it’s ups and downs, from the original design of Sonic being utterly hated by the internet, to the pandemic causing problems for its release date. But here we are, it’s getting a worthy sequel and the scale is only getting bigger. Introducing a couple of his pals, Tails (Colleen O’Shaughnessey) and his foe turned friend Knuckles, this looks like a really good time!

The fact, that we went from such a god awful design for Sonic, to three serious home runs for everyone in the movie, is pure joy. This sequel looks bigger, funnier and at the same time for serious. Seeing how we are getting a wider scope on the Sonic mythos, I’m sure they can expect even more success at the box-office. Also Tails is very cute.

‘Winning Time’ Trailer

I never ever do TV related posts, but HBO doing a show about the Showtime Lakers, let’s rock.

A look back at one of the greatest dynasties and greatest eras in the history of the NBA is coming to HBO next year. Magic Johnson and the 80s Lakers changed the landscape of professional sports forever in more ways than one.

From the massive success on the court, and honestly off the court, the way sports were looked at towards the end of that Lakers run was almost unlike anything we had ever seen before.

So to bring this all to our living rooms is quite exciting, and since it will be handled by HBO, you can sit back and relax, knowing this is in capable hands.

With an all-star cast, showing the many egos and personalities this era had to offer, I’m super excited to see it all come to life.

New ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Trailer Is Here

This trailer unloads a lot. We have 5 villains battling it out with Spider-Man, but something tells me he’s not alone…..

Perhaps the shot of the trailer? Lizard, Electro and Sandman all ready to throw down with some Spider-Men? The hype train is real for the upcoming MCU flick, they just had a whole event for a trailer release. Most movies don’t do this, but this isn’t just another MCU movie dropping, this is something bigger….

The worst kept secret in Hollywood is Marvel trying to hide that Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire are going to be suiting up once again as their respective Spider-Man. Not shown in the trailer for obvious reasons, they want this reveal to happen within the context of the movie and not in a trailer. With that being said, this trailer packs a serious punch and showcases a larger than life experience for Peter Parker and company.

We understand that Peter is tired of the world knowing he is Spider-Man, so when he turns to Dr. Strange to perform a spell to erase that memory from the world, it doesn’t go according to plan and he actually opens a door to other universes and enter some of the most famous Spider-Man villains to ever grace the big screen. From Lizard to Doctor Octopus this Peter Parker is going to have his hands full.

When he finds out after a battle with Doc Ock that all of these villains are met their match and Dr. Strange informs him that in their universe they all died fighting Spider-Man, Peter takes it upon himself to try and save everyone. Realizing he can’t and perhaps those closest to him, help always finds those who need it and behold, Andrew and Tobey!

Does Doc Ock have a change of heart? Does he end up enjoying the company of this new Peter Parker and realize he doesn’t want to be bad anymore? It seems like it. How are all these villains arcs going to play out? How are Tobey and Andrew going to come into play? My guess for Andrew, he swings it at the last second to save MJ – as we see her falling much like his Gwen Stacey in his universe. So much going on and we only have one more month to wait to find out!

‘Morbius’ Trailer Kind of Rocks

Jared Leto has gone from Joker to vampire, in the upcoming Sony that promises to be part of a larger story.

MORBIUS Trailer (2022) - YouTube

The movie that everyone forgot existed, including Jared Leto himself, is soon hitting theatres. Morbius just isn’t a household name when it comes to comic book characters and him getting his own solo flick, is kind of a big deal. They snatched up Jared Leto to play Dr. Michael Morbius, who goes from doctor on his death bed, to a powerful and blood hungry vampire.

The biggest takeaway from the trailer has to be the amount of easter eggs. From a Michael Keaton Vulture cameo, to a Spider-Man mural on a wall in the background, but the biggest egg that was dropped, when Morbius himself declares himself “Venom”. A little cringeworthy of a line, but none the less, it lets us know that this movie will probably take place in the Venom-Verse. Besides, the trailer is actually really well put together, and the movie doesn’t look half bad! Some cool visuals the cast is pretty stacked and it’s exciting to have another potential character in the Spider-Man universe.

There’s just so much going on in the trailer, it’s hard to pinpoint where the movie will fall, but I think they are cashing in all their cheques and hoping the movie is a success so they can decide who Morbius will fight next.

‘Ambulance’ Trailer

Michael Bay is all the way back and our lives just got better.

Are you kidding me with this? Sometimes you forget about a director and then BOOM, they come crashing back into your lives like a freight train from hell. This is peak Michael Bay and I’m all the way in. Two bank robbers who heist goes horribly wrong only to take control of an ambulance with Eiza Gonzalez as a paramedic. Just sign me up already.

Jake Gyllenhaal is going for it in this role. I love it, we really don’t get to see him play a bad gun, and you can tell he is having so much fun. When his buddy needs some money for a loved ones hospital bills (Yahya Abdul-Manteen) turns to the one man who always helps him out. This time around they are robbing banks, and after serving in the military, he finds himself in quite the pickle.

Not going to lie, this trailer is pretty bonkers and all over the place. The movie is called ‘Ambulance’ and that didn’t even come into play until the very end of the trailer. It just has so much going on and there are so many Bay explosions and I’m sure this is just the tip of the iceberg.

They did showcase a little too much of the film, but it being released on Netflix, that is a little understandable. But this is an adrenaline rush of a movie, my lord, the trailer just doesn’t slow down. It reminds me a little of The Town and John Q and do I really need to say more after that sentence?
