‘John Wick 3’ Trailer

He’s legit killing dudes with books.

Super-assassin John Wick is on the run after killing a member of the international assassins guild.


It would be scary to be in a Staples with John Wick. Actually anywhere in the world. The man who can kill you with just about anything returns in the first trailer for the third part in this glorious action trilogy. Expectations are high, the world was waiting for this to drop all week, and let me be the first to say, it didn’t disappoint.

They’ve upped the budget and you can tell. From the beautiful cinematography, it’s crazy that this is the first thing I mention about the trailer, but it looks stunning. The palette and the colour scheme is truly something special. The way they have shaped this universe which depicts every other person as a world renowned killer, these colours really make up this great universe. These are more than just cheesy action movies, they have created a compelling story, and compelling characters. When you through in impeccable cinematography it’s a recipe for one fantastic dish.

I’ve always had a sweet spot for Keanu Reeves, he’s a world class nice guy and has been making movies that I have loved for 30 years now. He’s becoming one of the best action stars ever and I think the character of John Wick himself is climbing the ranks very fast as one of the most badass action heroes we have ever seen.

Poor Boban Marjanovic who will fall victim to John Wick by I guess, death by book. I actually don’t feel bad for him, it’s my dream to be killed by John Wick in a movie. The larger than life athlete is making his movie debut in this and it’s great because he’s such a gentle giant and watching him play basketball is one thing. Fighting John Wick, that’s a whole other ball game.

I can’t say enough good things about it. With these trailers they don’t even show us a ton, you know the kill count is going to sky rocket in this installment. The trailers will just be the tip of the killing spree iceberg. He’s killing dudes with books, on horse in the desert, and who knows what else. Oh yeah, he’s now trained his dogs to kill people.

People often talk about trilogies that leave a mark and a legacy on this world. Lord of The Rings, Nolan’s Batman, well this is going down as one of the all time greats.

‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ Trailer

Now, this is what Ghostbusters 2 should have been all about. This could be the scariest movie of 2019

Velvet-Buzzsaw-Header-2_1050_591_81_s_c1.jpg

“After a series of paintings by an unknown artist are discovered, a supernatural force enacts revenge on those who have allowed their greed to get in the way of art.”

So Netflix decided to drop an atomic bomb of a movie trailer today. Talk about coming out of nowhere. From the writer and director of the illusive creepy thriller Nightcrawler, he’s back with his pal Jake Gyllenhaal. Jake is bringing a ton of other great talents with him though. John Malkovich, Billy Magnussen, Toni Colette, Renee Russo, and Daveed Diggs. This looks like a surreal hypnotic scare the pants off you horror film.

This doesn’t look like most horror films, it’s bright and colorful in most scenes, with a vibe that feels different. At the beginning of the trailer, I had no idea this was going to turn out to be a horror movie. Packed cast and a director that has shown promise in the past, this could be another hit for Netflix. Jake went full-on psycho the last time these two teamed up, and it appears he’s dipping back into the insane asylum.

Dropping in a mere few weeks, they must feel confident, but I also guess Netflix doesn’t need a whole lot of promotion to have a success on their hands. No one knew what Bird Box was until it came out, and before we knew it, the whole world was talking about it. Netflix is becoming more powerful as the days past it seems. They have massive hits dropping every month it feels like, and I can’t decide if it’s a good thing or not. People will flock towards this so quickly, and its word of mouth will spread like wildfire if it turns out to be great.

New ‘Captain Marvel’ Look

The banter between Fury and Marvel could end up being the selling point for me.

Captain Marvel she’s our hero, she’s going to turn Thanos to a zero. Now say that to the tune of the Captain Planet theme. Its taken two trailers, a few TV spots and now this new little inside look at the movie to finally get me on board. The reason? Sam Jackson and Brie Larson look terrific together on screen, and they seem to be the driving force behind it. I still don’t like the idea of her being the saving grace to the MCU and the person who will defeat Thanos, but that will all come together in Avengers: Endgame.

But this new look really focused on Fury and Ms. Marvel and I enjoyed what I saw. And I really don’t have much more to say about it. I haven’t blogged in a week so I thought I’d toss this in here. I guess I’ll be going opening weekend now.

Check ya later.

First ‘Hellboy’ Trailer Drops

Ohhhhh boy…..

Imagine trying to follow Guillermo Del Toro. Those are some truly hard shoes to fill, arguably one of the most visually gifted director working today, no wonder a lot of people disliked this trailer. Look, to begin with, people just wanted Ron Perlman to return and make a Hellboy 3, but the studio was thinking differently and wanted to take this franchise in a whole new direction. A shift tonally and having a new star could shake things up enough to peak the interest of the fans. In steps David Harbour, the star of Stranger Things. I will say this, he wasn’t the worst part about this trailer.

I mentioned the shift in tone, but honestly I couldn’t tell what kind of tone they are going for here. It seems more bloody and violent then it’s predecessors, while at the same time being light hearted and fun. They even played Billy Idol throughout the trailer. So right off the bat, fans seem confused on what to expect from the new Hellboy. I think it has a great cast, Ian McShane is a fan favourite and is always churning out wicked performances and the same can be said for Milla Jovovich, who appears to be playing the villain of the movie.

I don’t like writing off movies completely after seeing a trailer, especially the first. But this just overall came across as a utter mess. Neil Marshall who is the new director has a lot to live up too. I just wanted maybe a little more, and even some of the visual effects and certainly the way Hellboy looks really through me for a loop. But, what do I know right?

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.

‘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.
