First ‘The Matrix: Resurrections’ Trailer Drops

 

It’s time to journey back into the matrix with Neo and Trinity with what appears to be a wild ride.

The question always was, red pill or blue pill? I guess Neo has ditched the red pill and gone for blue and that has totally made him forget who exactly he is. A sequel to the mega action blockbuster that shaped how movies were not only viewed but made 22 years ago. The Matrix will stand the test of time and it looks like the 4th installment is taking a ton of plays out of the playbook of the original.

Visually stunning, cued up with White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane, this trailer has just about everything you would want from a matrix trailer. It’s trippy, it’s hard to understand, and has more visually pleasing moments than you can count. Neo (Keanu Reeves) has forgotten all about his past, including who Trinity is (Carrie Anne Moss) which seems a little odd, but more surprising than anything is the fact he no longer knows that he is the chosen one. There’s a lot to unpack with this trailer, that leaves a lot of questions unanswered, but that’s kind of what you want going into this movie.

The action looks incredible, going back to its roots with groundbreaking camera work with unique sequences and well-choreographed fight scenes. He may have forgotten who he is, but he certainly still has the majority of his powers. It’s just great to be back with these iconic characters, who helped shape popular culture in the late ’90s and early 2000s. Toss in some awesome new additions to the cast, Yahya Abdul-Mateen, Jonathan Groff, Neil Patrick Harris, Jessica Henwick, and Ellen Hoffman, there’s so much to be excited about.

I’m sure this movie will have a ton of surprises and leave your jaw flat on the floor. Hits theatres this December.

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Trailer Is Glorious

Strap in. Every single Spider-Man and all their baddies are coming back for one epic showdown.

Image

If this doesn’t get your blooding, I don’t know what will! Look at that picture above, all these years later and a little de-aging but Alfred Molina is back at Doctor Octopus and I think he’s brought along some friends.

So turns out that Peter just wants so privacy in his life. After the world finds out he’s Spider-Man, things aren’t going so well for the man. All he wants his things to go back to normal so he turns to the one man that can do that for him, Dr. Strange. So when Strange conjures up a spell to make the entire population of Earth forget that he is Spider-Man, obviously things don’t go as planned and all hell breaks loose.

They somehow open up the multiverse and this is where things truly get exciting. Jamie Foxx is back as Electro, Thomas Haden Church as Sandman, Rhys Ifans is back as the Lizard and the legend himself William DaFoe is back as Green Goblin. All of them teaming up with Doc Ock and one more party member to form the iconic Sinister Six. Six against one, I don’t like those odds for Peter unless…….

Not only are we seeing villains return, but their counterparts as well. Not shown in the trailer, because Marvel is clearly saving that money shot for the actual movie, but Tobey and Andrew are suiting up to help this universe Spider-Man take down their foes.

Like, I don’t need to say much more. Three Spider-Men, classic villains, and who knows what else is going down. Both Tobey and Andrew never truly got their swan song and a proper sendoff for their iteration of playing Spider-Man and this is going to be so bittersweet.

The movie looks like a ton of fun and for someone who has seen every Spider-Man movie in theatres, this is something I’ve wanted my whole life.

Due out on Christmas.

Final ‘Eternals’ Trailer Hits

Is the big baddie Galactus showing up in Eternals? Sure looks like it, the new and final trailer packs a punch

Eternals: Full trailer for Marvel film introduces the Deviants

Chloe Zhao had herself a year. Coming off multiple wins at the Oscars, she now finds herself in the grand universe of the MCU. Her take on the Eternals sure feels like something new and doesn’t quite look like every other single MCU movie that has come before it. Disney has given her the freedom to do her own thing and it shows her sense of filmmaking, which shines in this latest trailer. Some absolute gorgeous cinematography, the monumental cast, perhaps Phase 4 of the MCU is going to let the directors speak for themselves. Something previous movies have lack, a sense of identity.

The big question on everyone’s minds is, “where the heck these people were during the battle against Thanos?” Well, that has been answered in this trailer, by simply stating that the event almost wasn’t big enough and not their responsibility. Unless something known as the Deviants are involved it’s a no-fly zone for our heroes. That’s all about to change because the world may be ending in 7 days and it’s up to the Eternals to save the day.

Nothing like a great, getting the team back together troupe in a movie. Building back the team that has been on Earth for 7000 years, all reuniting for the first time in centuries. The cast is so large and incredibly talented that I can’t list them all, but this feels like a slam dunk of epic proportions. No one feels out of place and I’m sure they will all get their time to shine, but two notable standouts are the Game of Thrones alumni, Kit Harrington and Richard Madden.

Yes, it will have the MCU humor and everything that comes along with being a movie within the MCU, but that doesn’t mean this doesn’t look and feel different. Something the MCU has been lacking as of late. I think stakes will be at an all-time high and this will seriously be a massive launching pad for the MCU going forward. My prediction, the Fantastic Four or at least one of them will be the stinger at the end of the credits.

Due out in November.

New ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Trailer!

Carnage is the star of the new trailer and he looks glorious. This franchise knows exactly what it is and that’s what makes it special.

Well, I don’t think fans expected to get a brand new look at Venom vs Carnage this morning, but here we are. Woody Harrelson is going full on crazy mode for his interpretation of Cletus Kasady the mass murderer turned super-duper bad guy. They don’t really shy away from focusing on him this time around with a ton of new awesome footage of Carnage in action. He’s mean, scary and the body count is about to skyrocket with him around.

They set up the story a little bit more and take us deeper into the relationship between Eddie Brock and Kasady before their alter-egos will go toe-to-toe. I’m not sure if biting Eddie Brock is means for Kasady to turn into Carnage but it could very well play a role in the matter.

The movie honestly feels like a rom-com comic book movie. The romance just so happens to be between Eddie and Venom. Their constant bickering and flawed relationship being pushed to the test. It was the best part of the first movie and it’s a great thing they aren’t shifting that focus away. All poor Venom wants to do is eat people, but it’s clear the movie is setting him up as very anti-hero material and that they will have bigger problems at hand when Carnage is set loose on the city. Epic fights, great visuals and some really good humour make for a wonderful new trailer.

The big question is obviously going to be, will this be linked to Spider-Man in any way and I think if this movie is successful enough, that is just inevitable. These are two of the most iconic Spider-Man foes, and with star power like this behind the characters, it’s a no brainer.

This looks like a ton of fun and when a movie has confidence about what it wants to be. That can only lead to good things. Bring on the Carnage!

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.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife reveals new characters and its first haunted house | GamesRadar+

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!

New ‘Dune’ Trailer Rocks

Feast your eyes on the world of Arrakis and all of its beauty. Dune truly will be one of a kind.

Dune Official Trailer - YouTube

The world has been waiting for more footage of Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune, and this morning is finally that day. What a gorgeous and stunning trailer that was just delivered. Based on Frank Herbert’s best-selling novel, we are transported to a land where spices rule all and no one can be trusted.

Fresh off Blade Runner 2049, which is arguably one of the most beautiful movies ever made. Somehow, Dennis has upped his game for Dune. Each shot is rich in texture and color, making the landscape of Arrakis looking hauntingly beautiful. In the world of Dune, you can only trust a select few because the others are trying to kill you. Protect those closest to you, and fight those who are not.

We get a great sense of the scale of this movie, with giant landscapes, armies, and vast battlefields. The trailer does a fantastic job at showcasing the diverse cast, each playing an important role within the universe. Duncan Idaho (Jason Momoa) is on full display here as Paul’s (Timothee Chalamet) trusty sidekick who will stop at nothing to ensure he remains safe. The cast is brilliant and stacked so deep, that you wonder just how something like this could be assembled.

This isn’t going to be some flashy new movie universe. Dune is a slog, that isn’t filled with lightsaber fights, or talking creatures, it’s about humanity and finding peace within yourself and others. Its barren landscape can be just as beautiful as anything we have ever seen in a science fiction movie. That’s what makes Dune so potentially special, is just how different it will be from any other massive scale movie, its depressing nature and stature. Everyone is very stoic and poised and it works in its favor. It’s a movie that takes itself very seriously.

Dune needs to hurry up and get here, and a movie like this is why IMAX screens exist.

New ‘The Suicide Squad’ Trailer Drops

Bring on the misfits for James Gunn’s new Suicide Squad trailer. Everyone is having a ball and it looks like we have a real winner on our hands!

The Suicide Squad: Official Plot for James Gunn's DC Movie Is Here

Don’t mess with Bloodshot because he’s putting Superman in the ICU apparently. It would have been cool to see happen on screen, but nonetheless, stakes are extremely high for the squad this time around, as they will be battling the intergalactic Starro!

The trailer is more of the same, but we really get a sense of why Bloodshot will be joining the ranks of Amanda Waller’s team and that like most men, he wants to protect his family at all costs. I love the addition of Idris Elba to the squad, but obviously, Will Smith and his Deadshot will be missed dearly, but if you’re going to replace him, you can’t do much better than Mr. Elba himself.

This looks action-packed, with a ton of jokes to be had, which won’t be for everyone, but if the jokes work and they don’t seem out of place, they will just add to the experience of the movie. Look at the cast of characters we have going for us, it’s clear that jokes will be made and it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.

No one seems safe, but it appears that a few new standouts will make it to the end of the film, Polkadotman, Ratcatcher, and Peacemaker are the clear favorites if we are talking human characters. Give us 3 solo movies of King Shark please, he’s adorable and I won’t be shocked if he ends up stealing the entire movie.

Can’t be a Suicide Squad without a little Harley Quinn and once again, Margot Robbie was actually made for this role and it’s just fantastic that we are seeing her in action again. Her character really works so well with others and especially other misfits such as herself. Love her dynamic with everyone else on the team and the trailer does such a great job at teasing all of the epicness that will come with the real movie.

The Suicide Squad looks to be like a major hit. Drops August 6th!

‘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.

Image

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.
