Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer 2

gog2The new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is here and I am mighty excited. It looks great. I hope they don’t play up baby Groot for cuteness too much but I have complete faith in everyone involved. The film isn’t released until May 2017 which feels like a hell of a long time away. They could at least release what will probably be an awesome soundtrack first, but it is unlikely.

Anyway, here is the second trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Looks fun.

Ghost in the Shell trailer

Ghost in the Shell

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.

Rogue One TV spot

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.

Here is Rogue One “Together” TV spot. Enjoy.

 

Firefly animated series trailer

I should start this post by stating that THIS IS NOT REAL. Sadly, there is no animated Firefly series in production. An artist called Stephen Byrne did it as a labour of love and to generally raise and dash the hopes of Firefly fans everywhere. Which is a shame as this trailer looks great and I want to see it.

I bloody love Firefly and still get annoyed when I see any show I don’t like that has gone to a second series. If it was made now, I suspect it would have survived as special effects are cheaper these days. I say that based on having no idea what I am talking about. If you haven’t seen the original series, unlikely if you are reading this, you are missing out on life.

This has been all over my social media feed but I feel that if enough people witter on about it, then maybe it will happen. Now watch the trailer, weep, then complain loudly all over the internet that it isn’t a thing. Enjoy.

Tomorrowland trailer looks intriguing

Tomorrowland

I saw an earlier Tomorrowland trailer and thought it looked ok. George Clooney is nearly always good value and the science fiction element looked intriguing, but it didn’t seem all that special. Well the new Tomorrowland trailer looks even more interesting and my intrigued-o-meter has risen.

The premise of there being a world that runs parallel to our own has been done before – I was immediately reminded of Baxter/Pratchett’s (slightly disappointing) The Long Earth series or The Talisman by King/Straub. But Tomorrowland seems really cool, with an almost retro scifi feel to it. This feeling is enhanced by a couple of clips that were released separately – more on that in a second. The film also has Hugh Laurie, who is worth a watch. I don’t know his role in Tomorrowland but if he speaks with an American accent, he’s a good guy; with his natural English accent, he’s a baddie. Sorry if that turns out to be a spoiler, I’m just guessing. Anyway, here is the Tomorrowland trailer:

I think it looks pretty damn good.
The idea is that a secret society called Plus Ultra was founded by Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, Gustave Eiffel, and H.G. Wells in 1889. They then went to live in a hidden city. On Youtube and Twitter there is a great conspiracy type account called Stop Plus Ultra that has already released a couple of videos. There’s also a website. The Youtube channel is here. The first video is great:

The second one is interesting but a bit long. For some reason, it reminds me of a recruitment drive for the underwater city of Rapture in the Bioshock games.

I’m a sucker for these kind of viral marketing techniques and have been ever seen the internet excitement that surrounded The Blair Witch Project. It remains to be seen whether the film is any good, but until then check out the STOP PLUS ULTRA website. Like most conspiracy theories it is untrue but I so want it to be real: STOP PLUS ULTRA blog.

Jupiter Ascending trailer 3

Jupiter_Ascending-267973304-large-2The latest trailer for the Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending is here and, like the previous ones, it looks pretty damn spectacular. Also pretty damn pretty. You get a bit more of a glimpse into what it may be about but I don’t really care. Mila Kunis + spaceships is good enough to get me into the cinema.

I am no longer swayed by trailers and remain firmly in the camp that no matter how incredible Jupiter Ascending looks from these brief glimpses, there is still a huge possibility that it may turn out to be utter pants.

But it looks great so far. Enjoy.

 

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy

I didn’t mean to post another trailer but the new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer is out and it looks damned awesome fun. It’s quite nice to have something a bit more non-gritty just-for-fun comic book based action. Obviously I will still be tremendously excited by the new X-men movie and possibly Superman vs Batman – although I will hold opinion on the latter until nearer the time. Refreshingly, Guardians of the Galaxy looks like it doesn’t take itself too seriously and as a bonus is full of space battles and the lovely Zoe Saldana being a sexy green assassin. Enjoy!

Purge trailer

Here’s the idea. In the near future, America has near full employment and hardly any crime and everything is generally pretty ace. This is all because once a year, for one night only, nothing is illegal. So you can smoke weed, jaywalk, sleep with prostitutes and generally behave badly. Except for all the murders, it basically turns into Amsterdam for an evening.

Interesting premise, even though almost everything about it sounds massively unlikely. The trailer looks good and it has a great cast, so I suspect I’ll be watching it. Enjoy.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

On a lot of the hip, cool and intellectually powerful forums and websites where I frequently hang out, there has been a lot of chat about Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter. I’ll be honese and admit that I tended to just skip by these forums and trailers. I thought it will be most likely be a low budget bunch of balls. I love low budget cult films if: they are well-done/ funny/ gory/ suprisingly cool/ cleverly scripted/ have pointless nudity. Often however, some film-makers inhabiting this spectrum just think of a funny name and then string something dire together.

This is what I thought Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter was going to be. Then, in a moment of extreme boredom, I watched the trailer. It actually looks pretty cool.

So here it is:
