Geostorm – Trailer

Dean Devlin, director of the troubled (anytime another director comes in to do $15 million worth of reshoots on your movie, it’s safe to assume there are serious problems, no matter how the studio spins it) movie Geostorm, apparently learned more than a little bit about making disaster films from Roland Emmerich, who he worked with (as a producer) […]

Independence Day: Resurgence – Trailer 2

  Take note, Bryan Singer, this is how you do it!  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: No body brings the destruction like Roland Emmerich (and I’m not suggesting for a moment that it has anything to do with him being German, though it can’t hurt). The sequel to 1996’s Independence Day […]

‘White House Down’ Trailer

Just when you thought that we survived “Olympus Has Fallen,” here comes the more obviously titled “White House Down.”  This time instead of Gerard Butler, all we have is Channing Tatum standing between us and those that would destroy our way of life. God help the terrorists, especially considering that this is from Roland Emmerich, […]
