Game of Thrones season 7 is coming! There is a new trailer to prove it and it looks fucking incredible. I have utterly given up on the books now and it is pretty liberating to have no idea what is going to happen. I am pretty sure Cersei is doomed, however (I reckon eventually killed by her very loving bro Jaime). Plus. and this is a hopeful guess, there will be boobs and violence and dragons.
The new series of Game of Thrones is back on 16th July. Here is the trailer:
I wrote relatively recently about the Dark Tower book and how good it was. As I said in my review, the Gunslinger was damned enjoyable and I wanted to read it before the film came out. I’ll be honest though, I thought it was going to be a series of films but now it just looks like a one-off movie. Which is a shame but what are you going to do? The casting is great though – I am a big fan of both Elba and McConaughey and can easily imagine them in the roles. I seriously doubt that I will read the next six books in the Dark Tower series before this comes out in August, so the film had better be good.
I think the Dark Tower official trailer looks great but then trailers nearly always do these days. See what you think…
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.
The 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.
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 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.
Well, here it it. The latest, and I think final, Star Wars trailer. I think it looks superb but I am easily excited. Also above is the latest Star Wars poster. It has been an exciting couple of days! The Force is awesome with this one. Enjoy.
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.
The 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.
