The Witcher – Teaser Trailer

I have never read The Witcher novels by Andrzej Sapkowski though they’ve built quite the following. They’ve also been spun off into video games, which appear to be equally as popular as the novels, if not more so. Now the character is being ported to television, with a series starring Henry Cavill, fresh off of […]

Brightburn – Trailer Into Reaction

This is an AMAZING trailer on so many levels.  First off, it reads as a retelling of the Superman origin story, which can’t be an accident.
