‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Trailer Will Rock You

See what I did with that title? Get it? Queen, will rock you….

This whole thing looks amazing and that’s even without Sasha Baron Cohen playing the lead of Freddy Mercury. Oh what could have been. That was a match made in heaven. But in drops Rami Malek, Mr. Robot himself and I have to say, he’s doing a fantastic job.

I’m a big fan of Queen, well who isn’t? So when I heard they were making a feature length film based on Freddy Mercury I was quite intrigued. It kind of sat in production hell, but they ultimately found their Freddy and their director – Dexter Fletcher.

Movies about music or musical icons can be tough to pull off. You really need a rest performance to carry a movie such as this and I think we are going to get one. Rami will be the anchor of the film and a ton of weight will be placed on his shoulders. If people don’t buy into him and his portrayal of Freddy Mercury then the movie will not succeed. From what we see in the trailer I don’t think that will be the case, it seems he has totally bought into this role and immersed himself into the embodiment of Freddy himself.

Plain and simple if they do a great job incorporating Queens music into the film, and it translates well onto the big screen, I think this will be a home run. Check out the trailer below and see for yourself!

‘The Predator’ Trailer Finally Drops

Everyone stay calm. I repeat stay calm. Not all hope is lost. Just a bad trailer is all

Well, when news broke last night that the trailer for Shane Black’s upcoming reinterpretation of The Predator was dropping today, I almost felt like a kid on Christmas Eve. Turns out I was a naughty boy because this felt like a lump of coal in my stocking.

Shane man, what the hell? You know people are expecting big things from this, you were part of the original, Christ even helped write it and this is the trailer you put out? I’m so confused. I don’t know how on Earth he approved this thing. It shows us nothing, it’s just a bunch of quick edits and Jacob Tremblay playing with toys. I can’t believe how underwhelmed I was after watching this trailer, and it doesn’t really get any better on repeat views. The cast is stacked, and they didn’t really even give us a good idea of who or what we are dealing with. Boyd Holbrook looks like he will be able to hold his own in this role. You just need to give us something. 10-15 great seconds to sell general audiences on this movie. Even the whole feel of the movie felt nothing like it’s predecessors. Predator is suppose to be dark, scary and suspenseful. With a little bit of fun sprinkled in here and there. Even the Predator itself is barely shown, I know they are invisible, but I wanted one cool moment from them.

They reshot the last third of this movie, I understand that maybe there’s not a ton of fully completed footage ready yet, but you need to go all out here. You need a ton of buzz for this, early and keep the hits coming. That’s how this becomes a truly successful movie. This just isn’t a great start. I’ll watch anything with a Predator in it, but I’m not the person they are trying to sell this movie on. You need the general audience to want to go and check this thing out. I expected a ton more from the first trailer and I actually expected more from Shane Black himself.

I knew they would go down the road of hybrid’s, I just knew it. I’m kind of disappointed by this. You don’t need to reinvent the Predator, it’s perfect the way it is. We just want to see them hunt people down and kill them in awesome and grotesque ways. Is that so hard to ask?

Anyways here’s the trailer.

New ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’ Trailer

Really thought they would really explain where Ant-Man was during Infinity War….

Any one else feel a little underwhelmed with this? With everything we just witnessed in Infinity War it’s hard to get truly excited and stoked for the next MCU movie. This is nothing personal against Ant-Man or The Wasp, but I just simply don’t care all that much.

They were even suppose to tell us where he was during Infinity War, but they didn’t say much at all. The movie seems fine and dandy, I in fact like these characters but in the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t really matter, like at all…

Does this take place before Infinity War? After? Tell us something here Marvel, my guess is this takes place right before the events of Infinity War, and it will explain when Ant-Man is absent from the biggest fight the Earth has ever seen. Or maybe Paul Rudd just had a scheduling conflict.

Overall, looks like a fun time, building on a stellar first solo outing. But I just feel empty inside and this isn’t filling any kind of MCU void for me.

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!

‘Untitled Deadpool Sequel’ Trailer!!!

All hail Cable and proper CGI!

Finally! The Deadpool trailer has arrived. I thought it was going to drop this past Sunday during the Super Bowl, but then I remembered that every other word out of Deadpool’s mouth is a curse word, so not exactly family friendly.

This was what we were all waiting for, the reveal of Cable (Josh Brolin) and he looks pretty badass I must say. For those of you who don’t know, Cable, AKA Nathan Summer’s is the son of Scott Summers (Cyclops) and is from the future. They centered the trailer around him, and we got to see him in action. He certainly did not disappoint. Josh Brolin looks awesome, I’m glad they finished his CGI arm, because well that would just look weird if they didn’t. Of course they did, but that’s why I love these movies. Calling out Justice League and the whole “moustache gate” debacle that was Henry Cavill’s stash was perfect. They aren’t afraid of a little friendly competition and nagging.

Not much is known about the plot, they really used the trailer to feature and introduce us to Cable. A ton of new characters are being added, Domino (Zazie Beetz) who looks like the lead vocalist for KISS looks incredible. This movie is going to be a ton of fun we all know that. Hopefully they don’t make it to grand because one of the best parts about Deadpool was how simple it was. I also know how much passion goes into this project because Ryan Reynolds wants to please us fans more than anything.

I’m praying for a Hugh Jackman cameo in some sort of capacity but I don’t think that will happen. Cable was the selling point for this movie and they seemed to deliver on that front. The whole marketing campaign around this movie has just been incredible and we are still months away from its release. They do a better job at almost anyone at marketing their movie and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us next. The trailer is simply spectacular.
