New ‘Infinity War’ Trailer Is Madness

It’s madness baby, madness – Dick Vitale voice

So it’s March, which means the NCAA tournament is upon us and it’s officially “madness” time. Well the Mad Titan Thanos probably doesn’t care about how busted your bracket is at this point (thanks a lot Arizona), but there’s a whole lot of him in the new Infinity War trailer.

At this point no one needs to be sold on this movie, we all know it’s going to be the comic book event of the decade, well until part 2 rolls around, but in the mean time we have this to look forward too. This just looks incredible, the Russo Brothers actually did it, they some how managed to pull this thing off. So many characters, so little screen time, but some how, they have managed to blend all these heroes together for what appears to be the team up movie of the century.

Thanos appears to be really pissed off, and is on a one way mission to collect all the infinity stones and destroy half the universe in the process. Everyone is accounted for in the trailer and everyone is going to have their “time to shine” or “their moment” in the film. The whole thing looks epic, we are finally getting some death, destruction and a little torture. Stakes are at an all time high, and everyone isn’t making it out alive. The last shot of Captain America squaring off against Thanos like he doesn’t give a shit was fantastic. The cinematography and colour scheme were just magnificent, couldn’t believe how colourful everything was throughout the trailer.

This was it, this was all they needed to do, this movie is going to be here before we know it and it’s going to make billions of dollars. I just pray it turns out as good as the trailers, because if so, we will truly have something uniquely special on our hands.

‘Christopher Robin’ Trailer.

Hide your kids, because this is actually more terrifying than Pennywise The Dancing Clown.

Imagine sitting peacefully on a park bench minding your own business. Then out of nowhere this thing calls out your name. I would be running as fast as I could to the nearest bunker.

Meet Winnie The Pooh, you know the pantsless bear who loves honey more than anything. Well he’s back in a new live action kind of way. I wouldn’t fully consider this live action, because he’s just a walking, talking stuffed animal, but you get the picture. I don’t know what it is about this bear, but it really scares me. I can’t get over this and why they thought this could possibly be a good idea?

This has a very serious Hook vibe and feeling to it. Remember Hook? Peter Pan grows up and becomes a royal dick to everyone in his life and forgets what it means to be a kid and have fun. Well meet Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor) who has zero joy in his life at the moment. So when he is reintroduced to his childhood friend Winnie The Pooh, well it’s up to Pooh and the rest of the gang from the 100 Acre Wood to make him a believer once again. Like most people at one point in my life I loved Winnie. Brings back some memories, it’s hard to forget that loveable voice. So when the trailer came out, I know this was about a week ago, I was shocked by his introduction back into my life. Now it may all make sense once the movie comes out, but if Pooh looks like terrifying, imagine what Owl and Tigger will look like.

I loved Hook, so this will be right up my alley, will just have to put on my big boy pants.

‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ Trailer.

Johnny Depp is here to fully ruin this movie for everyone.

Seriously though. Who’s bright idea was it to cast this guy? Throughout my entire life I’ve had the privilege of watching Johnny Depp act, and he’s a fine actor, but as of late….Well he’s just now Johnny Depp. That’s all I ever see, not the character he is portraying, but rather I just see him as himself.

So why on Earth anyone thought it was a good idea to thrust him into the world of muggles and magic is beyond me. On top of that he’s playing the bad guy. The first Fantastic Beasts was fine, everyone loves being transported back into this world and seeing familiar things and hearing that iconic score that is all too familiar. I even didn’t mind that it takes place in the past and we get a better understanding of the world that Harry Potter lives in.

A movie based in the world of Hogwarts and Wizards without Harry Potter was an adjustment to say the least, but the new additions to the characters was met with reasonable expectations, and everyone seemed to enjoy the first film. If they hadn’t we wouldn’t be getting a sequel. We are now seeing Jude Law added into the mix as young Albus Dumbledore, which for me is going to be extremely strange to see. I can only picture a wise old man, not this young guy, who seems nothing like the person we grew to know through 7 books and 8 movies. I do like Jude Law, so this could very well work, but I won’t know until I see more.

Overall the trailer looks great, visually it’s right on par with the original and I love the beasts aspect of these films. The creatures are a nice additions to this magical world. But someone please explain to me why we have to have Johnny Depp.

The Grinch Is Back!

Max is the definition of dog goals.

“The grumpy Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the village of Whoville”

So the team behind the Despicable Me franchise is going from Minions to Whoville. Based on Dr. Seuss’s classic book, we all know the story by now right? Grumpy green guy hates Christmas and just hates everything in general and decides to destroy the special holiday for everyone?

Well they are tackling it again, and to be honest I don’t mind a new animated version of this story. It’s great, it always has a great message and I trust the team behind it. Not to much going on in the trailer, except Max being the best boy possible! Probably going to end up being the standout of the movie. A few tricks and pranks are put on by the Grinch which I laughed at. Benedict Cumberbatch is behind the voicing of the Grinch and I think he’s going to do incredible voice work for this.

The movie looks like a ton of fun, plenty of laughs, awesome animation and if you have been a fan of the Despicable Me movies, you will more than likely enjoy this come November!

‘The Incredibles 2’ Trailer Is Well…..Incredible

The moral of the story is, stay at home Dad’s are the real Super Heroes.

Finally, after teasing us for about a week, Pixar finally released the first real trailer for The Incredibles 2!

Everyone’s favourite Super Hero family is back and they didn’t skip a beat, literally, the movie seems to take place directly after the original and that’s pretty cool. I remember leaving the theatre and wanting to see them throw down with The Underminer and now we get to see that happen.

So this time around Elastigrl is being pushed into the spotlight for a new PR stunt to help rebuild the image of Supers. While she’s having saving the day, Mr. Incredible is at home, tending to the kids, well mostly Jack Jack. He needs to succeed at being a stay at home Dad, so Elastigirl can succeed at being a hero. I don’t mind this angle but it seems to familiar to the first, where the person in charge of the “PR stunt” Winston Deavor voiced by Bob Odenkirk isn’t all he says he is. I expect a double cross at some point. Which if this ends up being true, will kind of be disappointing, because we all saw that coming. I hope there are a few surprises in store for us, which I’m sure there are.

Other than that, the trailer is full of great jokes, laughs and Jack Jack really steals the show. Hope Pixar knows what they are doing and don’t screw this one up!

New ‘Rampage’ Trailer Kicks Butt

Animal on animal crime.

“Based on the classic 1980s video game featuring apes and monsters destroying cities”

“Of course the wolf flies.” When I heard Dwayne Johnson utter those words in this trailer, it was in that moment I was all in. The second trailer for Rampage has dropped and it’s more of the same – complete and spectacular awesomeness. I get it, giant monsters destroying cities. We have seen this a million times before, but none of these had Dwayne Johnson teaming up with a giant ape now did they? Dwayne hasn’t had this big of a tag team partner since the Big Show.

The trailer didn’t show us too much more new footage, but they don’t need to at this point. Either your sold or you’re not, and new footage probably isn’t going to change your mind. They didn’t tease that George the giant ape and Dwayne will actually work together in the end to stop the other monsters. I feel like Rampage will be this years Kong: Skull Island – a big dumb fun monster movie that you will enjoy much more if you see it on the big screen. Can’t wait!

‘Venom’ Trailer

We didn’t even actually get to see Tom Hardy as Venom. Still better than Topher Grace.

It’s been a decade and Sony pictures finally made up for the mess and the embarrassment that was Topher Grace and Venom. They didn’t even need to show us the demon creature in this teaser trailer for me to know, that this is going to be great.

The whole trailer is kind of shrouded in mystery and it seems like this will be a deep psychological thriller. Not so much of a comic book movie, where it’s bright and fun, but it seems serious and grounded. The trailer has a very serious Chronicle vibe to it, at least that’s what it reminded me of. A real life person gaining extraordinary powers and seeing it done in a very realistic and level way. I’m all for that when it comes to this incredible character, who happens to me one of my favourite characters in all of comics. I didn’t want them making fun or making Venom light hearted and a fun movie, because he’s anything but that. He’s a tortured soul and conflicted to say the least. Eddie Brock was a good person, with a few problems before the symbiote attaches itself on to him.

From what I could gather from the trailer, it looks like the symbiote has merged deep within Eddie and is giving him more powers than we are used to seeing. He’s just not becoming this demon, but it looks like he may have some telepathic powers. This could be the case until he transformers into the monster fully. Venom looks pretty dark and twisted and Tom Hardy is going full on deranged mode. Something has crashed to Earth and Eddie being a reported more likely goes to investigate and something happens, he changes. As they put it in the trailer, “You used to be one thing, now you’re something else.”

This looks promising because it doesn’t look like every other comic book movie being released. It doesn’t even feel like a comic book movie to be honest. So far so good, can’t wait to see what he looks like as Venom!
