‘Creed 2’ Trailer

DRAAAAAGOOOOOO!

trailer-for-creed-ii

I’m not going to take all the credit for this movie, but I did know exactly where this franchise was going after Creed dropped in theatres. So here we are, 3 years later and Creed is still boxing, but something from his past is coming back. That’s right, Ivan Drago and his son Viktor want a piece of the Apollo’s son.

I’m not saying this is absolute genius bringing back the Drago family, because it will have be done in the perfect manner in order for it to translate onto the big screen. It’s crazy to think, that when most people think of the Rocky franchise, usually their mind goes to Ivan Drago. So bringing him back to finally confront Rock himself, could be fireworks before our eyes.

Now the biggest problem for the film, Ryan Coogler isn’t returning to direct. He did help write some of this film, but that is my biggest concern. He wanted to make Creed for the longest time, it was a passion project for him, so him not bringing that same passion could be a problem for the sequel. Steven Caple Jr. is taking over and I hope he’s ready to fill some pretty big shoes. All the other party members involved are so passionate and love this franchise that I’m not to concerned about the director change. I thought the trailer looked great, but Ivan himself was missing, which was a problem for me. Still can’t wait to see this, I love this universe so damn much.

‘Mortal Engines’ Trailer

We got the biggest bomb of the year folks! This is one steaming pile of hot garbage.

I really do hate being that guy who rips things to shreds. A lot of hard work goes into making any movie. Hundreds of people put a ton of time and energy into each project, but sometimes you just need to tell it like it is. Mortal Engines STINKS, I haven’t seen the movie, but my god that trailer told me everything I need to know.

Two words come across the screen, Peter Jackson and that immediately gets you going. This man is responsible for the Lord of The Rings, turns out he’s not directing, not a good start. They want to suck you in with thinking he’s heavily involved, he’s not. He might have been responsible for getting Hugo Weaving to star. This seems big and bold, something he is known for, but it doesn’t really have any of the Peter Jackson DNA on it, at least in my mind. The concept seems pretty cool, but unfortunately the execution looks just terrible, sad really.

I feel like I have seen this movie a hundred times over the last decade. Some rebellious kid wants to take down some evil organization all on her own. Only for them to be recognized as the symbol of hope. I just can’t do it anymore. This has all the makings to be a massive flop, let me reiterate, this will be a massive flop.

See for yourself.

‘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.

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!

‘Mission Impossible: Fallout’ Trailer.

Henry Cavill vs. Tom Cruise > Superman vs. Batman. Calling it now.

“Ethan Hunt and his IMF team, along with some familiar allies, race against time after a mission gone wrong.”

This trailer was so good and they didn’t even have to show us Tom Cruise running! I pray we get to see Tom Cruise running in the next installment of the Mission Impossible franchise.

These movies remind me a lot of the Fast & Furious. This franchisse was kind of dead in the water after MI3, much like Tokyo Drift, but since then, these franchises have both reached new heights and keep getting better. Now you’re telling me Tom Cruise is going to throw down with Superman, are you kidding me!? Henry Cavill looks pretty pissed off in this trailer, and his moustache looks glorious.

Ethan Hunt always finds a way to get himself into trouble. The whole team is back including Ving Rhames (Luther Stickell), and Michelle Monaghan (Julia). Simon Pegg, Alec Balwin and Rebecca Ferguson are all returning as well. We also got Angela Bassett joining in on the fun!

One the best things about these movies is Tom Cruise trying to one up himself with each new insane and dangerous stunt. Well he did it again, because he’s hanging by a rope from a helicopter. That’s probably so easy for the guy, the balls on that man I tell you. Fallout is describe as a Mission Impossible mission gone wrong. Well that seems to be the case with every movie, but these have become so enjoyable, the plot doesn’t really mater to me. I’m here for cool fight scenes, great action sequences, crazy ass stunts and of course the epic score to these movies! That bathroom fight scene looks phenomenal, can’t wait for this. Henry Cavill playing a bad guy, will be a 2018 movie highlight for me

‘SkyScraper’ Trailer

This really is Die Hard with The Rock, I’m in!

So Dwayne Johnson is going serious. So serious in fact, that he only has one leg! Give this man the Oscar already. Okay is this a little over the top? Absolutely. Do I really care all that much? Absolutely not.

We got Will Ford (Dwayne) a “glorified security guard” living in what seems to be the worlds tallest building known as The Pearl. A former FBI agent, who, after an on the job accident is no longer with the force. He lives in this building with his wife Sarah (Neve Campbell) and their two kids. Will is worried about the security measures and safety and security challenges are piling up.

You totally know where this is going. Everything is going great, but his family gets abducted, there is WAY more going on inside The Pearl that meets the eye and it’s up to Will to save the day. I’m calling an inside job right now, I’m looking at your character Pablo Schreiber! I was hoping this would be a little more of a serious role for Dwayne and it appears that we are getting just that. No one does a bigger and grand scale action movie better than Dwayne Johnson right now, and SkyScraper is no different. Things are blowing up left and right, and he’s even taking on the word record for longest long jump. By now, you are either watching every single movie Dwayne Johnson does, or you are sick and tired of him. If that’s the case, I believe you don’t have a soul anymore. I’m excited to see Chin Han back in action, he was Lau from The Dark Knight and soon to be BFF with The Rock.

Final ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Trailer

Again, the combination of robots vs. monsters synced up with TuPac is pure genius.

The final trailer for the highly anticipated Pacific Rim sequel has hit the web and it’s a doozy. I’m very much looking forward to shoving my face full of popcorn and enjoying a large farva while I watch this.

In terms of a “popcorn” movie, I don’t know what else you really need or want. I know going in, this won’t be able to top what Guillermo del Toro did all the way back in 2013. No one has quite the vision he has, and his sense of style and artistic view on movies is unmatched. But I know I love the world he built. The characters, and I love watching giant robots kick the living shit out of monsters. So there’s no sense in saying stuff like why bother going if Guillermo isn’t directing and blah, blah, blah. These are the kind of movies you see on a Saturday afternoon when you got some time to kill. Or if you’re like me, you go Thursday night because it’s one of your most anticipated movies of 2018.

I’m done talking up this movie, it’s going to be a really fun time in the theatre and actually has potential to be really good.

‘Oceans 8’ Trailer.

I pray this isn’t another Ghostbusters situation on our hands.

Seriously though, I’m all for this fantastic group of women getting together to make a heist movie, but I don’t think it needs to be an ‘Oceans’ movie.

Sandra Bullock leads this all-star cast as “Debbie Ocean,” Danny’s little sister. I love the Ocean movies so much, I hold them dear to my heart. I don’t think you mess with the success of this franchise, unless you have a future plan of combining these two groups of people for an epic Oceans 14. It just doesn’t make sense, this doesn’t need to be set in the same universe, change the title and just make a really good movie about female con-artists. I’m sure they will sprinkle in a few cameos here and there throughout the movie, but I don’t know, it makes it feel like a cop-out.

This cast is stacked, Bullock, Paulson, Blanchett, Munn, Hathaway, Dakota Fanning, Bonham-Carter, Holmes, Rihanna, Kaling, I could honestly keep going, this movie is full of star power. So why not have a woman directing these leading ladies of Hollywood? Gary Ross is directing, the guy behind some of the Hunger Games, but I think they should have totally gotten a women to do this. With everything that’s goes on in Hollywood, more people think woman should direct, which is true, this would have been the perfect chance to do just that. A movie about women, directed by a woman, makes sense to me.

The premise is much smaller than what we are accustomed too, usually these movies deal with casinos, this is about a 100 million dollar necklace, 150 million sorry. I really hope they pull this thing off, do I want to see Danny and the boys back together? Absolutely right I do, and I think so does everyone else. Add in these lovely ladies and I think you’ll have a real winner. I’m hoping the execution of Oceans 8 is pulled off as well as the heists in Oceans 11 and 13.

‘Annihilation’ Looks Incredible

This is the female Ghostbusters movie we all wanted.

annihilation-slice1-600x200.jpg

Writer and director to the epic sci-fi masterpiece Ex-Machina looks to be following it up with another stroke of genius with Annihilation. This movie and this trailer is shrouded in mystery and it looks like a really great new science fiction movie, something we need right now. Everything we have seen so far regarding this movie has been incredible, and for lovers of science fiction movies, this could quite possibly be their most anticipated movie of 2018.

Natalie Portman stars as a biologist who is headed into the unknown, or as it’s referred to as “the shimmer,” she’s in search of something that has come in contact with her husband (Oscar Issac), and wants some answers. She leads a team of other badass women, Tessa Thompson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez and others, into this place, where it seems the laws of nature no longer apply. Animals are cross breeding, strange plants are growing and some cool ass monsters are lurking in the darkness. Things are going to go up shit creek for these ladies, and it seems like they all won’t make it out alive. The visuals are simply stunning, but that should come to no surprise, seeing this is coming from the guy who made Ex-Machina. Portman is going all sorts of Ripley in this trailer, and she’s really pulling it off, she’s unloading her gun on god knows what, a bunch of times throughout the trailer. I’m just so intrigued by all of this, the landscapes, the creatures, what a place like this is doing on Earth, and I’m sure we will get all these answers in the movie. Trailers should leave you with wanting more, and this one certainly did it’s job. We have a real winner on our hands here I think!

‘Ready Player One’ Trailer

Really curious to know how they got the rights to all these characters.

So the new trailer for Ready Player One just dropped and it’s a real doozy. Being a massive fan of the book, when I heard this was being adapted into a feature length film, I was pretty happy to say the least. When they debut the first trailer at Comic-Con this summer, I wasn’t really that impressed with what I saw. I have changed my mind about this movie after this trailer, because it really does look spectacular.

Now I know going into this movie, it can’t be exactly like the book, but from this trailer a lot of things I was hoping would pop up did. There are actually too many characters to even name that appear in this trailer, and I’m really excited to see all these people on screen together. Look it’s Steven Spielberg, you already know it will be an enjoyable film. But he has the ability to make a truly special piece of film, and I think he might be hitting a home run with Ready Player One. It’s got a great cast and it’s based off a phenomenal book. This has all the makings to be extremely successful. Let’s hope so!
