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.
This will be the last thing I post about Star Wars: Rogue One before it comes out. I wasn’t even going to post this trailer/spot and tried to avoid watching it. But then I got bored at work and gave in. It’s only 30 seconds and I think I have seen most of the footage already but I still got a little excited. So I might as well share.
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 have no idea how many Resident Evil films I have seen. Or even how many Resident Evil games I have played. Definitely 3 or 4 for each and they have all been enjoyable. Not great, but enjoyable. The games are better than the films (they always are) but then the games don’t have Milla Jovovich in the tight and sexy outfits that women apparently need to wear in post-apocalyptic worlds. Which turns the films from being a little bit shit to quite watchable fun.
So when I saw there was a trailer for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, I watched it without much anticipatory excitement. I have to say it looks like a laugh. Plus it has Guns and Roses playing and some kind of dragon thingy flying around. I am quite looking forward to this now and know that I will probably enjoy it, even though I know it will be just a little bit shit.
I can’t wait for Resident Evil: Epilogue and all the rest.
Someone on Twitter asked the legendary Kyle MacLachlan to explain Dune. I assume it was meant as a laugh because Twitter is somewhat limited when it comes to giving explanations or descriptions. MacLachlan is always good value in everything I have ever seen him in. When I was young, he was the character that interacts with a cast of weirder characters – which, given that he was in a lot of David Lynch stuff, was some real weirdness. I’m talking about stuff like Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, and Dune.
Nowadays he plays the off-centre characters in things like How I Met Your Mother and Agents of SHIELD and is always fun. What I am trying to say is, I’m a MachLachlan fan. Now if you haven’t read the book of Dune, you should. It is superb and I reviewed it here. The film caught a lot of flack but I loved it. Possibly because I was on a lot of spice back then, or maybe I am just peculiar. If you have read the book or seen the movie, then you will appreciate the genius of what he did – you can really follow the story.
Here, in emoji, is Kyle MacLachlan’s Dune. I hope this becomes a new fad.
Good old Jar Jar Binks, the annoyance that keeps on giving. Spoof trailers, theories about him being a Sith, he is a meme that reminds us of how bad things can get when you resort to slapstick for humour. Binks is the Inspector Clouseau of the Star Wars universe – the Steve Martin version obviously, Peter Sellers was great. But the memes and parodies are funny. I think so anyway and in this corner of cyberspace, I am in charge.
Without further waffle meesa gives you Rogue Binks:
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.
For the next instalment of the Scifi Ward trailerfest, we have Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Like Kong, this has been done several times before but there are quite a few angle’s you can take with the tale. King Arthur was basically a set of legends after all. Also, Guy Ritchie has quite a fun style, as you can see from the trailer. Enjoy:
The trailerfest continues with Kong: Skull Island. This could also be fun but I am not that bothered about King Kong. I love the ‘lost world’ idea, with dinosaurs and crazy tribes, but a giant creature trashing stuff has already been done pretty well from quite a few different angles – King Kong, Godzilla, Cloverfield, Transformers, Pacific Rim, and so on. Hopefully there will be a new twist.
