The Final Wish – Trailer

I hate to be a cynic–it’s safe to assume not enough that I won’t act like one–though my expectations for The Final Wish are…pretty low. I like to call this one ‘The Lin Shaye and Tony Todd Movie’ because they’re the only reason anyone is likely interested in seeing it (low blow.  I hope you’re […]

The Umbrella Academy – Teaser Trailer

When Raleigh Beckett said in 2013’s Pacific Rim that ‘…in order to fight monsters we had to create monsters of our own,’ he wasn’t talking about the current streaming environment but he might as well have been because when Disney launches Disney+–their competing, terribly-named streaming service–they intend to pull all their content from Netflix. Which […]

A Mysterio(us) Missive

See what I did there? With the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home premiering-if the scuttlebut on the Interwebs is at all accurate–sometime this week it’s worth a look at one of Spider-man’s greatest enemies. Mysterio! To be fair that’s just my feeling about the character because his awesomeness will vary based upon the artist […]

It’s a good-looking trailer, and features actors like Christoph Waltz, Mahershala Ali and (this should go without saying since Alita: Battle Angel is also produced by James Cameron’s Lightstorm […]

Holmes and Watson – Official Trailer

Reilly most interesting because his Watson is somewhat of a straight man to Ferrell’s bizarre Holmes. And speaking of Holmes did anyone get a very […]

The Joke(r)’s On You

You might have heard that Warner Bros is making a movie based on Batman’s arch nemesis, the Joker. Now here’s the punch line: This version of the Joker exists entirely outside of DC continuity! Now keep in mind the DCEU (the DC Cinematic Universe) has a version of the Joker, and he was introduced in […]

Sun Sets on Cavill’s Superman?

Apparently, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Henry Cavill is out as Superman. There are quite a few reasons stated (scheduling issues, problems negotiating a cameo in Warner Bros upcoming Shazam!, delays in ramping up a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel, etc) and while–if this is true because it bears repeating that this is not […]
