New Justice League Trailer

The new ‘Justice League’ trailer is here, omg, omg, breathe, please everyone just breathe, akjsdhfgkas;

here’s the new Justice League trailer that droppped over the weekend, in case you haven’t seen it yet… and some people are understandably freaking out a bit, which i get… i’ve watched this trailer at least 3-4 times now, and yeah it does look pretty awesome — but i also thought the trailer for Batman v. Superman looked pretty damn good… same with the first trailer for Suicide Squad…. ummm, so yeah, think i’ll cautiously reserve judgement until it hits theaters and read some reviews.

at the moment, i’m just waiting for the new Guardians movie to come out :)

18 More Years of Star Wars? Oh Hell Yeah!

Disney is looking at creating ‘another decade and a half of Star Wars stories’ after Episode IX

According to Variety, Iger reaffirmed that Disney would not digitally re-create Carrie Fisher’s General Leia as they had done in last year’s Rogue One, but also stated no other changes were being made to the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi in light of Fisher’s passing earlier this year. “Her performance remains as it was in [Episode] 8,” he said.

The CEO also dropped some hints about the upcoming standalone Han Solo film, confirming some long-standing fan expectations that it would explain how the character came to possess the Millennium Falcon. According to reports, Iger also said that the film will show how Solo met his Wookiee sidekick Chewbacca, and that audiences will “also discover how he got his name,” an unasked question if ever there was one.

Most importantly, Iger spoke about Disney’s further plans for the future of the Star Wars franchise. When Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012, it announced that it would produce Episodes 7, 8, and 9, as well as look into releasing new films beyond that. Those additional films ended up becoming the three standalone films that have already been announced, and which kicked off in earnest with last year’s Rogue One. But Iger reportedly revealed that Disney is looking at what comes well beyond that, exploring “what could be another decade and a half of Star Wars stories.”

damn, kinda crazy to think that they’re sitting around and thinking / mapping out the next slate of Star Wars movies and that it’ll go into the 2030’s.

no complaints here, though!

Let’s Reboot The Matrix!

Yes, Of Course Warner Bros Is Going To Reboot The Matrix

It’s often said that’s nothing is certain in life except death, taxes, and movie studios rebooting their biggest properties in a desperate attempt to stay relevant within the franchise dominated media landscape. I think Ben Franklin might have said it, but who knows for sure.

In any case, I always kind of assumed that The Matrix would end up getting a reboot at some point in the future. The fact that the trilogy grossed over a billion and a half dollars nearly 20 years ago is just too tempting for any money hungry studio (i.e. all of them) to leave untouched. And despite the pretty negative reaction to the sequels, The Matrix remains a culturally relevant, “known” brand with a world that is ripe for exploring. And so why wouldn’t WB exploit that for all its worth?

feel like i read something about a possible Matrix reboot quite awhile back, but i thought it was more like some internet wishfoo thinking / rumors… but i guess not.

they’re actually going to “reboot” the Matrix.

No Avatar Sequel in 2018

James Cameron Says No Avatar Sequel in 2018

In an interview published by the Toronto Star, James Cameron reveals that the sequel to the groundbreaking 3D movie Avatar will not hit theaters in 2018. Of course, Cameron notes that he is not merely making Avatar 2. Three sequels to the original are in concurrent production, which represents an epic eight-year undertaking for the director of the top grossing movie of all time.

Avatar’s influence on the movie and the TV industry cannot be overstated. Even though 3D for home viewing is becoming a niche format for AV enthusiasts who are into front projection—major TV makers totally abandoned 3D in 2017—it persists as a popular choice in commercial cinemas and 3D movies continue to be released. […]

Regardless of what the ramifications are of delaying the first sequel—Cameron notes that there never was a firm release date—one thing is for sure: When these sequels arrive, there’s no telling what sort of innovations they will serve as catalysts for. After all, with Avatar and Titanic, Mr. Cameron is responsible for the #1 and #2 top grossing films of all time—quite an accomplishment.

to be honest, i’m kinda tired hearing about these vaporware new Avatar movies or sequels… after all this time, i wished they’d just stop talking about it… if he ever actually does come out with a sequel, cool beans… otherwise, why even bother talking about it?

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer

NEW Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer

oh man, i just watched this trailer 3-4 times, and i’m loving it… crazy thought, but i almost wonder if Guardians will give Star Wars a run for it’s money this year? i know, pure heresy to star wars fans around the world… but maybe give it a run for the best space movie of the year then??

also, not sure… but that looked like a bit of a plot spoiler there a the end… damn it… lol

Honest Trailers, The Oscars

Honest Trailers – The Oscars (2017)

i honestly can’t remember the last time i sat down and actually watched the oscars… but every year i end up hearing about it one way or the other, from friends… co-workers talking about it… and of course, seeing people talk about it online the next day… either way, got a chuckle from this ‘honest trailer’ take on it.

John Wick Kill Count

got home last night and flipping through the channels, saw ‘John Wick’ playing, so naturally i sat down and watched it… good stuff, and right before the latest episode of ‘The Expanse’ on Syfy which was fucking awesome… anywho, had me once again starting to count all the guys he kills in that movie, which then had me wondering what the kill count was like in the latest one that i saw in the theater recently…

holy shit.

John Wick 2

went to go see “John Wick 2” over the weekend, and was kinda shocked at how effin packed the theater was… i figured everybody was there to see the new batman lego movie (super tempting), but i guess john wick was more popular than i thought.

if you liked the first one — and i know i sure as hell did, cuz it was fucking awesome — then you’ll most definitely like the second one as well… sequels usually don’t live up to the hype, but this one was just as good as the first, and some say even better.

i’ll be picking this one up on bluray when it comes out, for sure.

PS. he’s such a total badass, mang.

Early ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Super Bowl Ad

The Super Bowl Ad For Scarlett Johansson’s ‘Ghost In The Shell’ Drops In Early

Paramount Pictures has released their Super Bowl commercial for Ghost In The Shell a few days early, in case you wanted to watch a robot version of highest-grossing actress Scarlett Johansson kick guys in the chest and swan dive out of windows (we certainly wanted that, more than we ever realized).

Many of the visuals on display here were already spotted in the first trailer, and it seems like they’re trying to capture the look of the Masamune Shirow manga this is reportedly based on, even though the first two minutes of the film very much seem like an homage to the “Shelling Sequence” in the 1995 anime’s iconic opening credits instead, right down to a new arrangement of the same song by original composer Kenji Kawai.

oh man, talk about “feeding the machine”, huh? aside from that small scene at the end with her face, nothing really new… but damned i’m not pretty hyped for this movie and can’t wait to watch this one up on the big screen with some super healthy popcorn with extra butter and salt in hand.

damn right.

New Dune Trilogy?

Arrival’s Denis Villeneuve to direct Dune remake

Hot off filming Ted Chiang’s Story of Your Life to great acclaim and Blade Runner II, Denis Villeneuve is tackling the great white whale of screen science-fiction: Dune. Brian Herbert, son of author Frank Herbert, tweeted the news last night.

Dune was filmed twice, once as a stunning but mangled David Lynch epic and later as a low-budget TV miniseries. Fans have been eager for years to see the 1965 classic in theaters again, but various projects over the years have failed to enter production.

The story’s complexity sank the 1982 version, but its incredible production design made it a cult favorite. Star Kyle McLachlan explains the plot succinctly in a tweet

For once I insist this single novel be turned into a screen trilogy. Trying to fit Dune into two hours was the key mistake first time around.

i’d have to agree about them going with a trilogy with something like Dune, especially since it’s such a large and complex story — one totally worth reading — that’s nearly impossible to properly tell in a single 2hr movie… so yeah, they should go full LOTR on that shit, without a doubt!

the movie remake train continues…

James Cameron Is Salty

James Cameron Is Getting Salty About Alien: Covenant

James Cameron, patron saint of sci-fi sequels, is weighing in on a sci-fi sequel. Speaking in an expansive, otherwise excellent interview with Vulture, Cameron was asked about Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant, and had this to say (emphasis my own):

“The franchise has kind of wandered all over the map. Ridley (Scott) did the first film, and he inspired an entire generation of filmmakers and science-fiction fans with that one movie and there have been so many films that stylistically have derived from it, including my own Aliens, which was the legitimate sequel and, I think, the proper heir to his film.”

Shit, dude. “The legitimate sequel”? That’s pretty rich. Aliens was wonderful, but replaced the vibe of Scott’s tightly-wound horror with an all-action badass adventure movie. Both are masterpieces in their own right, but the middling Prometheus is still more thematically linked to Alien.

well shit dude, i’m not sure what the hell Cameron’s been up to the past few years… guess he’s still working on Avatar movies? dunno… but man, i know it’d never happen but i’d totally love to see him do another Aliens movie!

The Last Jedi Opening Crawl

Director Rian Johnson Had to Wait Until This Morning to Complete The Last Jedi’s Opening Crawl

Yesterday, Lucasfilm officially announced the title for Episode VIII: Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Now that it’s finally in the wild, the movie’s director can finally make one tweak to the current cut of the film he’s presumably been wanting to make for quite some time.

Rian Johnson took to Instagram today to share a teasery shot from The Last Jedi’s ongoing editing process, giving us a teeny, tiny glimpse of the movie’s opening crawl.

Turns out—presumably to keep the title as secret as possible during the edit process—Johnson couldn’t actually officially “complete” the opening crawl of the film until after the Last Jedi name was released by the company. Now the movie is a teeny, tiny bit closer to being complete!

oh man, what a tease…! nobody likes a tease, but in this case i’m totally fine with it… seems like december is forever away, but i know it’ll eventually get here… shit man, as i get older, time sure does seem to fly by at warp-speed so maybe it’ll feel like it’ll be here in a couple weeks.

still trying to soak in the official movie title… but a few other movies sure do come to mind, like: The Last Samurai, The Last of the Mohicans, The Last Airbender, Transformers, The Last Knight, The Last Boyscout, The Last Starfighter…

PS. little bummed that Deadpool didn’t get any oscar nominations. damnit.

Rogue One v. The Force Awakens

‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Vs. ‘The Force Awakens’ Which Is Better?

oh man, this is a tough one..!

i see what he’s talking about as far as the characters (Han Solo, Chewie, Leia, R2D2 & C3PO) in the Force Awakens, and i can agree with that… but that was never my problem with it, and having watched TFA a few times now i still feel the exact same way as i did on opening weekend — it’s the story, the plot, that still kinda drives me nuts.

i actually thought that Rogue One was the better movie of the two… thought it was a far better “prequel” than what Lucas came up with, loved all the little nods and nuggets to the original trilogy, and nearly had my jaw on the floor after watching Vader go ape-shit on the rebels as Leia was escaping… leaving off exactly where A New Hope starts off.

fucking awesome.

on the flipside, The Force Awakens definitely had the better soundtrack… no question there, and the opening intro to Rogue One kinda had me scratching my head and just felt a bit lame.

which do you think was better?

Honest Trailers – Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back

i’ve seen so many of these great honest trailers, but never realized until just now that i’d never seen one for the original (and best) trilogy… not to mention the best one of them all, episode 5.

p.s. still trying to get a pair of my nieces to watch star wars… dunno why they just flat out refuse to even give it a chance! wtf?

The Force Is Strong With Rogue One

Force is strong with Rogue One as Star Wars spin-off gets rave first reactions

The buzz so far from the premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story suggests that the spin-off to the galactic franchise has been well worth the hype.

The crowd at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles went wild with applause as the credits rolled and took to social media to express their delight, Associated Press reported.

The film stars Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Riz Ahmed and Mads Mikkelsen and is the first of three planned spin-off films set in the Star Wars universe.

The film tells the story of the rebels who steal the plans for the Death Star and is set right before the events of the original 1977 Star Wars.

speaking of movies, i already got my tickets and am totally ready for some new Star Wars action later this week… only a few more days, can’t effin wait!

few days working from home, then the office christmas party, followed by seeing ‘Rogue One’… then i’m out until january 2nd… kinda excited here.
