New ‘Godzilla: King of The Monsters’ Trailer

And this is exactly why we go to the movies.

Yes. That’s an actual shot from the actual trailer that will actually be in the actual movie. Mouth full ain’t it? Sweet lord, what a follow up to the best trailer of 2018. The hype is certainly real with the next installment into the Godzilla franchise. I was waiting all week for this puppy to drop and let me tell you something, it didn’t disappoint. After the release of the first trailer I knew it would be hard to top it. After watching this new one about 20 times already, I can safely say that it’s a tie! I feel like the music from the first one elevated the trailer so much, that it could have been a man watching paint dry and I still would have found it beautiful. But the actual footage in the newest trailer is so damn good, this is now my most anticipated movie of 2019.

Once again they really don’t need to show much in order to have people awe struck. It’s very very large monsters literally kick the shit out of one another. I will have your largest popcorn and soda pop please and thank you. For something that is so incredibly vast in scale, these monsters or titans as the trailer is putting it, looks rather breath-taking if you ask me. It’s so clean and cut and you can actually tell what the hell is going on. I don’t know how they pull this off or even begin to create something like this. All the monsters look so glorious and the King himself Godzilla is a forefront and he looks awesome.

Just an insane cast of stellar actors and actresses, that this promises to be one of the best films of 2019 (hopefully). Everything up to this point is pointing in the direction of this being a home run, and we haven’t even really seen all that much. Just imagine when King Kong shows up. God I love movies.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Trailer

Ant-Man really out here ruining trailers.

So Tony has officially hit rock bottom. He lost his pal Spider-Man, and now he’s about to float into space and die a pretty depressed man. It’s been 8 months since the worlds biggest snap happened and Marvel just dropped the first teaser trailer for the end to it all.

Avengers: Endgame is the official title, and that’s exactly what it is. The Endgame to so many characters that we have been watching for over a decade now. Crazy to think that in about 6 months this wonderful journey will all be over. This was the definition of a teaser trailer, not telling us anything we already didn’t know and certainly not showing us anything. They will not show a single snapped character in any marketing before this movie is released. So I expect these trailers leading up to the finale to be pretty bleak and very minimal. But that is the point. If you were expecting something else, you clearly don’t know Marvel or how to properly market a movie.

I enjoyed it, I really liked the Tony stuff at the beginning and my only issue was the stuff with Ant-Man at the end. Yup, the entire universe was just cut in half but they still got time for jokes in the MCU! Just scale it back a little bit, that’s all I’m asking. So now we gotta wait another 3 months before the first real trailer with footage we all wanna see will drop. Until then, watch this on a constant loop.

New ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer

These trailers have been underwhelming to say the least. I’m not buying Brie Larson has a superhero.

Marvel was trying to break the internet last night by dropping yet another trailer for their upcoming female led superhero flick Captain Marvel. The person who will he responsible for defeating Thanos, or at least playing a major role in doing so. I found myself yet again completely underwhelmed and almost bored while watching this thing.

Here’s the thing. Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, I buy that. The female warriors of Wakanda, I buy that. Even Scarlet Witch and Black Widow, I buy that. Something seems off about Brie Larson, I cant quite put my finger on it, but I’m just not invested in this. The coolest part of the whole trailer is when she is completely CGI and that could be anybody up on screen. She’s a terrific actress, but I don’t think she’s the right fit. Gal Gadot is exotic, she was in the military, she looks like Wonder Woman. I can fully support and get on board with that. But this, Brie Larson is now the most powerful person in the MCU, the person who will be responsible for making things better? After all this time, 22 movies and counting, yeah, I’m not buying that for a second.

I also hate how this is an origin story, why do I care about anything now in the MCU that happens pre “snap?” I get it, it’s going to tell us where’s she’s been, and how powerful she is, but it just seems like a total cop out. Fighting an old lady on a bus? But wait that lady is a shapeshifter, it’s just so cheesy and dull and something I don’t care to see.

I don’t know why this bothers me so much, but I’m just not at all interested in this movie. Yeah I want to see her with the rest of the Avengers, but this movie seems so useless and almost not needed. I want more female super heroes like the rest of you, I just simply think they picked the wrong woman to lead this franchise. See for yourselves.

‘Lion King’ Trailer

Well would you look at that. The Lions finally won on Thanksgiving.

Look at this little cutie! He’s so fluffy I wanna die. Yesterday Job Favreau dropped his trailer for the up-coming live action adaptation of one of the best Disney properties of all time. People are just blown away by this and I don’t blame them.

Hot the heels of 2016’s Jungle Book which blew audiences away, Favreau decided it was time to up the ante and make adults all around the world have emotional breakdowns during this film. We got a small taste of what to expect this summer, it’s almost identical to the teaser trailer that was released for the animated version all the way back in 1994. To this day it remains one of the best animated Disney movies, and it broke the hearts of little kids and adults alike. Now we all get to live through these painful experiences once again, but this time it will look so real that you’ll probably need therapy or some crazed mothers will call PETA thinking it’s real.

The cast is so incredible and diverse and I can’t wait to actually see some real footage from this thing. I want to see these animals talking! The voice acting is and the singing with Beyoncé and Donald Glover is going to be some of the best we have heard in an animated feature film. But this is just a tease. There’s not a lot to discuss because we don’t hear any voices except for a voice over of James Earl Jones and if that didn’t give you goosebumps then I don’t know what will. Imagine they brought Jonathan Taylor Thomas out of hiding for this!

The visuals, well just giving the 2020 Oscar for best visual effects to this movie already. It’s a wrap, done, over, no need to even discuss the category. Can’t wait and it’s only going to get better with Aladdin dropping soon as well. I’m never growing up!

Final ‘Aquaman’ Trailer

God bless you James Wan.

This movie is going to be bonkers. Lucky individuals have already be fortunate enough to see it. Apparently these trailers don’t even scratch the surface of just how epic James Wan’s Aquaman is going to be.

So we are officially just over a month away from the newest DCEU movie to hit theatres and for the most part, DC fans are sitting on pins and needles. The trailers have been great, it’s getting some early positive feedback, but with everything else that has been going on within the structure of the DCEU, fans just want this to be a home run. After the news of both Affleck’s and Cavill’s apparent departure from the DC Universe, that is just added pressure on Jason Momoa’s shoulders.

If Aquaman becomes the smash-hit I think it will be, that pressure for the time being will be forgotten. But they still have to address the potential new casting of a Superman and Batman, that is frankly a very tall task. But that is not why this blog is going up. I’m here to give my feed back on the new and final Aquaman trailer. I feel like there was only a tad bit of extra new footage. Some quick new shots, I feel like they are really saving it all for the big screen, which I am TOTALLY fine with. No need to go overboard with the trailers, because this is going to be massive. Maybe not opening weekend massive, but if Aquaman turns out great, this movie with have serious legs.

They are really keeping Orm (Patrick Wilson) and Black Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen) a secret. Very little footage of either villain has been present in the trailers. Again, not complaining because I think both are going to be fantastic. Black Manta hasn’t even spoken a word yet in any of the three trailers. Hopefully they aren’t trying to hide something is all. The imagery and landscapes are incredible and the visual effects keep getting better with each new trailer. James Wan has really created his own little world with Atlantis and he’s really putting his stamp on the DCEU.

This looks so promising and I just hope it doesn’t fall flat of my expectations. WB looks to have a home run on their hands and I hope they don’t screw this one up is all.

Check ya later.

‘Toy Story 4’ Teaser Trailers

Only Pixar can incorporate an animated fork and make a billion dollars from it.

Woody must have gone to Canada because he looks high as a kite in the picture. The toys are back! Honestly who knew all the way back in 1997 when the first Toy Story dropped it would spawn 3 sequels and be a billion dollar franchise. Kind of crazy when you really think about it. Did we honestly think that 22 years later Woody and Buzz Lightyear would still be our lives?

So the first teaser is simply the toys enjoy life, holding hands, until they all realize that they are rejoicing with Forky. I’m not lying, the Forks name is Forky. Tony Hale will be providing the voice and it seems like a match made in heaven. It also brings up a ton of questions, like why is this Forky a toy? Is everything in the Toy Story universe alive? Will this be a cross over with Sausage Party? One thing is certain, this will tug on our heartstrings like no other. Apparently Tom Hanks couldn’t even function his last day doing voice work. So prepare to cry like a baby.

https://youtu.be/G9T_f7DjYho

Then we had the second trailer, which was far superior in my opinion Meet Ducky and Bunny, the new cool kids on the block. Voiced by the iconic duo of Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael-Key, this trailer was hilarious and it seemed so far off brand from what we are used to in the Toy Story universe.

I have no idea what’s in store for our toys, but it appears they will be going on a road trip and will find out even more what it truly means to be a toy. Probably insanely heartfelt stuff going on and will have some emotional gut punches.

‘Detective Pikachu’ Trailer

We are all about to be Billy Madison. Sitting around with a bunch of children. This generations Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

When news broke that Ryan Reynolds would be voicing the legend that is Pikachu, the world and myself really didn’t know how to react. But after watching the trailer and looking at this adorable picture, I can’t help but say I’m totally on board. Growing up Pokémon was a big part of my life, at one point in time I was one of the worlds best card players – probably, and I really fell in love with these characters. I can’t believe it’s taken this long to have a live adaptation of these beloved creatures.

I’m getting a vibe of Who Framed Roger Rabbit here, probably a little bit less dark, but they honestly couldn’t have picked a better person to voice Pikachu then good old Ryan Reynolds. But I’m so used to him playing Deadpool that I thought he was going to drop an F-bomb. This is going to be massive at the box-office. And if it turns out the movie is actually quite good as well, this could turn out to be a juggernaut. It looks like a lot of fun, and it was great seeing some of my old favourites again, mixing in some great jokes.

I will always have a soft spot for Pokémon, I’m sure a lot of people my age do. It was some what resurrected with Pokémon Go a few years ago, but this trailer just put a smile on my face maybe it’s because Reynolds was voicing the title character. I will for sure be there opening weekend, like I said this movie is going to be MASSIVE.

Here’s the trailer.

‘Creed 2’ Trailer

Godzilla might have some company for best trailer of 2018. Dear god.

creed-2-youtube.png

Anyone else sign up for boxing lessons today? If this trailer and his highness Lord DMX didn’t get you all sorts of fired up, well you simply have no soul. This is it, I’ve didn’t know it when I woke up this morning, but I have been waiting my entire life for this. Seeing how Rocky 4 is one of the most rewatchable movies of all time, I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am for this movie.

People like myself have had Rocky in their lives since the day they were born, others grew up with him. For a ton of people, he is one of the greatest movie characters to ever step foot on the big screen. When Creed was announced, these people (myself included) didn’t know if this would translate well onto the screen. We all know how that turned out. Creed blew us all away and we all wanted more of this universe. We also know how I tweeted Michael B Jordan 10 seconds after I watched Creed and ask him if he knew if Ivan Drago ever had a son. Well now 3 years later, not only did he have a son, but he’s about to go toe-to-toe with Adonis Creed. Seeing Rocky and Ivan on the screen together again will be so goddamn legendary, and I don’t know if I’m ready to say goodbye to Rocky just yet. Can you say Rocky ghost? Does Rocky die halfway through this thing, but he’s there in spirit? I don’t know, but I have a feeling by the time the end credits hit, Rocky won’t be around. I hope that’s not the case because this will no doubt be a trilogy, so not having him around for the final chapter wouldn’t be ideal, in my opinion.

I just need this in my life right now, and I watched this trailer ten plus times today.

 

 

 

 

Final ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald’ Trailer

They certainly did not save the best for last.

Typically with big franchise and blockbusters, they slowly but surely pump out new and exciting trailers every few months in anticipation of the actual release date. The newest Fantastic Beasts is a prime example of that method. The first two trailers have hit and today they released the final one, marking that this is soon to be released in theatres. I gotta say, I was impressed by it at all.

Not that I haven’t been impressed with what has come before it, because I thought the previous trailer was really well done and it got me excited for the film. I even blogged about it. The only problem was the Johnny Depp situation and I gotta say, he wasn’t the issue with this one. The problem I had here was this trailer just felt all over the place and I still don’t even know what the hell this movie is about. Yes Newt has to hunt down Grindelwald, but that can’t it, can it? Even the title of the movie is a mouth full, typing it out is even a chore. Of course I’m going to see it, but I now have some reservations on the outcome of this flick. People tend to judge movies a lot by the trailers they see before hand, that’s how we are as a society. I’m no different.

I’ve been rereading all the Harry Potters and just finished all the movies for god knows how many time. So I am excited to be thrusted back into this world of magic and muggles. I just wish they did a better job with this final trailer.

Check it out below.

‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer Hits

Another origin story……..

It only took 10 years, but we are finally getting a female led MCU movie! Brie Larson stars in the upcoming Captain Marvel, I feel like she’s the equivalent of DC’s Green Lantern. She’s a space cop, who lands on earth in the 80s! That’s right, we are hearing back in time to everyone’s least favourite decade. But we have Stranger Things to thank for all this 80’s nostalgia.

Look the trailer seems fine, in fact, it was just that, fine. I’m not over the moon about this movie or this character to be honest. The biggest problem I have with her is the fact that she’s suppose to be the most powerful hero in all the MCU and now she’s coming around? After Thanos wipes out half the universe? Where has this girl been? That’s what I don’t like. It’s been 10 years into the MCU and they are now introducing us to this all powerful space cop. It’s kind of a litre ridiculous and I just don’t believe it. They better have a damn good excuse why she hasn’t been around to Earth when it was trying to be destroyed 100 times over.

The cast is chalked full of great people, they are even de-aging Samuel L Jackson for this, and he has both his eyes! Jude Law looks to be a potential villain and the return of Josh Pence as Ronan The Accuser. But all of this and I still thought the trailer was simply okay. It’s a teaser I know, or maybe I’m just tired of origin stories. We know what happens 30 years later in the MCU. Why do I care about this? Remind me why I should care about an origin story of Captain Marvel that takes place in the 80s, when half the universe just got wiped out.

Anyways. Here’s the trailer.
