New ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Trailer

We got one! A brand new trailer for the upcoming sequel to the cult classic Ghostbusters is here and it’s really good.

Like father like son. When Ivan Reitman directed Ghostbusters almost 40 years ago, I don’t think he ever envisioned his son would pick up the proton pack mantle and direct his own sequel someday. This trailer has everything you would want. It’s respecting what has previously been built while exploring new roads and new ideas all while making it seem directly related to the original material.

Instead of some 30 something-year-olds battling ghosts in New York City, we are going to get a coming-of-age story, that seems like a neat and interesting spin. Jason Reitman is practically dedicating this film to the late Harold Ramis by making him the focal point of the entire story. We have his family moving into what they think is a small town in the middle of nowhere and into this old beaten-down home. Unbeknownst to Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and Phoebe (McKenna Grace) is that their Uncle (Egon) was an all-time ghost ass-kicker. So when they start to put the pieces together of his legendary past, it’s up to them and a few of their trusty side-kick friends to help save the world yet again.

One aspect that everyone is very excited about is obviously the cameos of the people who built this franchise from the ground up. We get a peek at one with Annie Potts (Janine Melnitz), who played the world’s greatest secretary. But, the moment that is bound to give every fan goosebumps is when none other than Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) picks up the phone at the very end of the trailer. The cameos seem like a natural part of the story and seem to flow very nicely within the context of the movie. Not forced and it will only help drive the movie forward, something you would want with a movie like this.

We get to see the new team in action a little bit more, but the best part about the trailers that have arrived so far is the lack of action they have been showing. Not a whole lot of ghost-busting has been shown and I think that’s wonderful. This is about more than just that and the movie is clearly about more than that. We do get to see Ecto 1 back in action with a few cool new upgrades at hand and honestly hearing the sirens go with the car, will put a smile on anyone’s face.

It seems fun, inventive but close to home. Which all leads to a successful sequel. Time will tell!

‘Last Night in Soho’ Trailer is Insane

Journey through Edgar Wright’s new trailer, which promises fear, delusion, and confusion, in all the best ways.

When Edgar Wright makes a movie, it’s an event. It’s been a while for fans and his newest project, Last Night in Soho promises to be his most adventurous movie yet. This trailer is beautiful and could be the one that finally breaks the Oscars barrier because this looks incredible.

The story follows fashion designer Eloise (Thomasin McKenzie), who is somehow able to transport herself to 1960’s London. From there she is able to see her idol Sandy (Anya Taylor-Joy), and not everything seems as colorful and cherry as it appears. First of all, we have two of the best young female actors working today sharing the screen together. Monster performances are on the horizon from the pair. That is a certainty, with this being an Edgar Wright film, we know great music and A-Plus cinematography will also be involved. Just look how this trailer looks and catches your eye.

Edgar is doing something he’s never done before, a horror movie. The trailer is creepy as heck, with a few great scares and just the looks on our actresses’ faces is enough to let you know that this is going to scare a ton of people. He kind of has a Bioshock vibe going with the colors and landscape of 1960’s London, or was that just me? Time travel,  morphing slowly into the thing you love the most, and probably a bunch of psychopaths is a recipe for success.

The trailer is all about our leading ladies, and when you see this trailer you can’t help but want this movie like now. We will have to wait until the fall, but this seems like something truly special, and this is really all we need to see from it. This is the kind of movie you want to know nothing about when you enter the theatre.

First Look At Chloe Zhao’s ‘Eternals’

The new wave of Marvel heroes is upon us. Chloe Zhao brings it after her historic year and looks to bring her creative eye and immense filmmaking to the MCU.

Marvel's Eternals Trailer Brings Chloé Zhao's Cosmic Vision To The MCU | Movies | Empire

Talk about riding the pine. The Eternals are ready to unleash themselves after sitting things out for a long time. Even with a threat such as Thanos it wasn’t enough to have them decide it was time to help out Earth’s mightiest heroes, but that’s about to change. They’ve been shaping civilization forever and now they want to place their mark on the 21st century.

This cast is STACKED, and it’s way too long to go through the names, but watching the trailer you’ll play the classic game of “I know them.” This movie is kind of a big deal for the MCU for multiple reasons. First and foremost, they have an Oscar-winning director at the helm. Coming off the best director win and best picture win, the world certainly knows her name.

Secondly, they are introducing the next wave of not just heroes, but lore in the MCU. Exploring more of the magical side of things, these people will fit nicely beside Dr. Strange. They are the next team to form and help Earth defeat whatever evil comes its way.

This is a small tease, just introducing us to the characters and showcasing the vast landscapes and tone of the movie. Little action is shown and we don’t really have any idea what this movie is going to be about. All we know is the Eternals are back and they are bringing the pain.

New ‘The Green Knight’ Trailer Drops!

Any movie with a talking fox is worth watching.

First trailer for The Green Knight presents a trippy take on medieval times

In all honesty, could this be the movie of the year? It feels epic, looks beautiful, and seems to have all sorts of fantastic performances. Now if that isn’t a recipe for success, then I don’t know what is. Dev Patel stars as Gawain who is going on quite the adventure. We got headless monsters, talking animals and giants, oh my!

One of the more beautiful trailers we have received this year and The Green Knight is shaping up to be a serious awards contender, or at least in my books. We have some just breath-taking cinematography happening here, real wide landscapes and all sorts of different settings. This feels like a massive scale movie with giant set pieces across the board.

Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris, Barry Keoghan, and Alicia Vitkander round out the rest of this impressive cast, all really diving deep for this. It seems like a mash-up of King Arthur and Pan’s Labyrinth, which is just the highest of compliments. Even with two trailers, the movie is still shrouded in mystery, which is always a pleasant surprise. Not much has been given away, and that’s exactly what you want when watching a movie.

Hits theatres this summer and again will be shocked if this isn’t some sort of masterpiece.

‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Is Here

Fans have waited a long time for the first look at the sequel to Venom. It looks to be more of the same, and Carnage sure looks awesome!

Image

Doesn’t he look cute? Well, that trailer was just kind of meh eh? I would say underwhelming is the best way to describe it. It feels like everyone has been waiting years for a glimpse at this film and then the opportunity finally came, they kind of let us down.

This certainly feels like a proper sequel though, Eddie (Tom Hardy) is still living in his awful apartment and visiting Mrs. Chen every once in a while. The quirky and silly humor that goes on between Eddie and Venom is still present. Something that everyone loved from the first Venom. He’s dealing with the problem that is Venom, still trying to get him under control and eating everyone around him. Now, it looks like he might be crime-fighting which would lean more into the Anti-Hero territory for the character.

Now, the reason why this movie has the reputation it does, Carnage! Woody Harrelson appears that he’s going all-in with the role. Just like his counterpart, Hardy and Harrelson look like they are both having so much fun! Andy Serkis is stepping into the director’s chair and I hope he brought his expertise of motion-capture for some of this because that would take this to the next level.

We get a tease of the Daily Bugle (please let there be a Spider-Man cameo) and what even looks like a tiny spider at one point. Naomie Harris shows up quickly and it’s obvious she is playing Shriek!

If you are a fan of the first, this will be right up your alley. With the addition of Carnage, fans will get just about everything they would want from a Venom shared universe. Toss in that swinging webhead at the end of the movie and everyone will be losing their minds.

Hits theatres on September 24th!

Final Trailer For ‘A Quiet Place 2″ Arrives

After a year on hiatus, A Quiet Place 2 is finally coming out this month, and the final trailer is here!

A Quiet Place 2' Release Date Delayed Over Coronavirus | IndieWire

One of the long-forgotten movies of the Pandemic, being lost in the shuffle, with this originally suppose to be released in March of last year. The Abbott family is back and looking to avenge the death of one of their own.

The first movie was one of the tensest theatre experiences anyone has really ever encountered, and the sequel promises to be no different. We will get our look at day 1 of the initial invasion and I think that will be something eerie and surreal to watch unfold. It’s also a genius maneuver to get John Krasinski back into the movie. He’s back in the director’s chair, but we know what happens to his character at the end of the first movie.

The final trailer gives us more of the same, with a little longer look at day 1, but nothing really pops out from the previous trailers. Creepy monsters, absolute silence, and just a fantastic cast. This isn’t a movie you want to watch on your laptop or on your phone, these are the kinds of movies you want to be sitting in a theatre for and I hope everyone gets to do just that.

They have built something unique here with A Quiet Place and this sequel could be just as great as its predecessor. I expect Emily Blunt to go full Ellen Ripley here trying to protect her children and that alone is reason enough to see it.

First ‘Shang-Chi: Legend of The Ten Rings’ Trailer Hits

The next new wave of MCU heroes is upon us and it starts with Shang-Chi.

When the star of the movie Simu Liu is surprised on his own birthday by the release of the first trailer, it’s just something you love to see. The upcoming MCU flick promises action like we’ve never seen before, with some fabulous and color action shots.

A lesser-known hero has never been something the MCU has ever shied away from. In fact, they almost love a challenge and with Shang-Chi on the horizon, expect a lot of people Googling that name to find out what will be in store.

The trailer is a mixed blend of realism and fantasy marital arts. With almost boss battle-type fights going on. It all looks fantastic and a breath of fresh air for the MCU. Expect Simu Liu to have plenty of foes to go up against including Big Nasty himself Florian Munteanu.

We have been patiently waiting for this new wave of heroes to enter the MCU. The new blood is arriving and it will all start in the fall when Simu Liu and his Shang-Chi steals our hearts.

New ‘Army of The Dead’ Trailer Arrives!

We got zombies, zombie tigers, and bears oh my!

Image

You know the old adage, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Well, whatever is about to happen in Vegas is going to be something epic. The guest list is long and not everyone invited is alive and well.

Zack Snyder’s next zombie flick looks totally insane with some gorgeous visuals and all-around good zombie fun. When an elite group of mercenaries enters Vegas, which is now ground zero for a zombie outbreak, they need to outlive and outlast them, all while trying to steal 200 million dollars. It’s a blood-thirsty game of cat and mouse, where survivors take all. If you make it out alive, bet that you’re walking away with a hefty payday, that is if you make it out alive.

Zack Snyder knows two things really well, zombies and superheroes. We have all sorts of unique zombie-killing weapons, one of which looks like the world’s biggest table saw. When it comes to Snyder always expect the unexpected and we know that in this zombie world, animals aren’t immune. Introducing the cutest little zombie tiger, which I’m sure will end up being a big-time fan favorite.

A chaotic trailer, filled with all sorts of action shots, that make you feel once this team enters Vegas there will be no letting up. But when your trailer is synced up to Kenny Rogers it’s really hard to fall short.

Dave Bautista leads the charge and is the man out in front, trying his best to keep his team and himself alive. He’s bringing so much energy and his rift-raft teammates are all out in full force.

I fully expect this to be a massive hit for Netflix when it drops on May 21st.

First ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Trailer

LeBron James is once again forming a superteam in our first look at the Space Jam sequel.

Image

LeBron James has always kind of been in the shadow of Michael Jordan and now he’s trying to fill in some more of his shoes, by becoming an actor. Everyone loved Space Jam when it arrived back in the ’90s, it was fun, inventive, and made us fall even more in love with MJ. When it was announced that LeBron would be forming his own Tune Squad and squaring off against the Mon-Stars once again, everyone was a little skeptical.

Well, after this trailer debut I think it’s safe to say the next edition of Space Jam is in good hands. What a ton of fun this trailer was. Director Malcolm D Lee is bringing everyone and anyone in the Warner Brothers cinematic universe along for this ride. Much like Ready Player One, this just feels like a party. From the trailer, you are almost playing I Spy with all the easter eggs and characters that pop up.

Of course, we are going to get some basketball action and they are showcasing that this time around we are actually going to get more than just gags are these two teams compete. They even recreated one of the all-time NBA moments with LeBron and Lola Bunny, something that basketball fans are going nuts about on social media. Even the Mon-Stars look terrific, displaying a new look, with each one encompassing whichever NBA/WNBA star is behind the monster.

This just looks like it’s going to be full of laughs, amazing animation, and just all-around fun. The exact recipe one would want in a Space Jam movie. Kudos to LeBron James for actually pulling this one-off. What can I say, the trailer is a slam dunk.

‘The Suicide Squad’ Trailer Has Arrived!

James Gunn just dropped the first look at his upcoming Suicide Squad movie and DC films are already rejoicing! 

Coming off the insane run of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, DC fans are already being treated to the next project, with the first trailer for The Suicide Squad. Fresh off his two Guardians of The Galaxy movies for Marvel, James Gunn brought his talents across the bay and into the hearts and minds of DC fans. 

Now, after the so-so success of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, with a ton of ramifications that came after its release. Much like the Snyder Cut, Ayer has told fans there is another version of his movie somewhere out there and fans are still campaigning to see it. Moving forward with James Gunn who knows a thing or two about bringing a bunch of weirdos together to form not just a team but a family. 

Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) once again is front and center, but with a new mixed bag of characters surrounding her. In fact, it’s almost too many to rattle off, but most notably, we have John Cena as Peacemaker, Idris Elba has Bloodsport, and already fan-favorite King Shark voiced by the legend himself, Sly Stallone. There are so many talented people in this movie, and all of them playing their own unique character that will have a moment or two to shine and showcase their powers. Even Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) is back and ready to set some heads on fire, as the trigger-happy leader and boss of this rambunctious group. 

The trailer is colorful and packed full of crud jokes and heartfelt moments. The stakes seem higher and more blood will be shed. Towards the end of the trailer, we even get a sneak peek at Starro the StarFish (weird I know) who will be the main villain in the film. 

You can’t really ask for much more from a first look and this seems really promising. James Gunn is bringing his flair to the project and there is a ton to enjoy. The beautiful thing about a movie like this is everyone will latch onto a certain character. There’s something and someone for everyone, and that is always a recipe for success. 

Drops in theatres and HBO Max August 6th.
