The last two Thor movies have been ok. Not great but entertaining none the less. Ragnarok seems like it is going in a very different direction and looks like it could be a shitload of fun. Fewer plotlines about people being tricked by Loki the Trickster and more space adventure goodness. In fact, as the trailer went on I was fully expecting one of the Guardians of the Galaxy to pop in and say something witty. I will be surprised if that doesn’t happen in the Ragnarok at some point.
I think this looks great but that could just be I have been in a long excitement build up to Guardians 2 and this feels like a crossover. Plus – Led Zeppelin. Zeppelin rule. Enjoy.
I’m a very forgiving soul so I am allowing myself to get fairly excited about both a DC film and a Zack Snyder film. I enjoyed Watchmen and I waited till the extended BluRay version of Batman vs Superman came out and enjoyed the hell out of that too. So bollocks, I am looking forward to Justice League.
Suicide Squad was crap, so I won’t go full on “Star Wars” excited yet. DC have yet to find their feet. I know trailers mean bugger all these days, so for what it is worth, here is the Justice League official trailer. I think it looks great! Woohoo DC!
Recently there was an event in America where they have the year’s most expensive adverts and a show by a celebrity. I think some kind of sport happens too, I missed it. But I didn’t miss the obvious highlight, which was some new footage and a one minute trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. I haven’t been this excited since Star Wars Rogue One and that was totally justified.
The first film immediately became one of my all time favourite movies, so this has a lot to live up to. This clip has the new one minute trailer and, in case you haven’t repeatedly watched it recently, the full length trailer. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 looks awesome and I am almost as excited about the soundtrack. Enjoy.
I wasn’t going to post another trailer so soon but it’s Spiderman! It’s a reboot, so the first one of the series will definitely be good. Also, it is now under the lovely Marvel umbrella and frankly, they can’t seem to go wrong at the moment. Here you go – Spiderman: Homecoming.
The new Ghost in the Shell movie has its first full length trailer and I have to say it looks incredible (as does Johansson). It is not out until March 2017, which seems a painfully long time away but at least we have Star Wars to fill the gap.
I haven’t seen the original film in 20 years, so I am a bit hazy on what happens but after having watched the shiny new trailer, I don’t really care. It was bound to change a bit. Here’s the trailer:
Pretty awesome right? I highly recommend the original Ghost in the Shell anime. Someone has actually posted the entire movie on Youtube but you really should buy/rent a copy. It is on all streaming sites. There is also a TV series. If this is successful it might finally pave the way for Akira, who knows. Right, I feel an anime binge coming on.
I remember seeing the trailer for the original Guardians of the Galaxy and thinking it looked like it might be fun. Given the characters, including a talking raccoon and a tree, there was also quite a high potential for it to be a bit shit. Thankfully, it wasn’t just fun, it was superb and it now one of my favorite films of all time. It also has one of my favorite soundtracks of all time. So fingers crossed, no pressure for the sequel.
So far, there has just been a “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” trailer and a ton of cool posters. The trailer came out last week, but I was on a beach and some people may have missed it. So here it is again. It looks great.
I love The Walking Dead. It is so damned bleak and gory and filled with really horrible violent people. Brilliant. It explores the idea that if there is an outbreak of zomb- I mean Walkers, what would happen? Mostly the conclusion is that most of the survivors would be a bit psychopathic and no one would thinking of heading for sea or remote islands or anything. Or maybe they do and the whole show just follows all the nutters around as they are more interesting.
Possibly in an attempt to lighten the mood somewhat, UK streaming service – Now TV – hired John Cleese to do a recap of everything that has happened for the whole of Walking Dead seasons 1 to 6. Damned funny it is too. Just like the show, there is a fair amount of gore. But this time you’re laughing, so it is ok.
The Walking Dead is back with season 7 on October 28th. I can’t wait. Zombies! I mean Walkers! (Seriously, why can’t they say zombies?) Here is Mr Cleese. Enjoy.
Due to all the negative reviews, I missed Batman vs Superman in the cinema and ended up watching the ultimate 3-hour edition at home. I think I was so prepared for disappointment that I actually really enjoyed it. I have heard the longer edition is the better one, so maybe I lucked out. I was also pleased to have all my doubts about Battfleck swept away – Affleck is a superb Batman.
So this new Justice League footage isn’s supposed to be a trailer, but I have included in today’s post Comic-Con trailerfest because it looks and acts exactly like a trailer. It also looks pretty cool with all the leads looking right for their respective roles.
No more waffle, the final entry in my trailer bonanza is the Justice League trail- I mean assembled footage.
The Scifi Ward trailerfest continues. This is the second Doctor Strange trailer, so possibly not so exciting as the others. However, I saw this trailer in 3D IMAX yesterday and it looked superb. Also, the Doctor Strange comics were brilliant, so I am really looking forward to this one.
