Venom – Official Trailer # 2

Having just watched the latest trailer for Sony’s–In Association With Marvel!–Venom I have to admit that I like it a lot more than the first. Though the American accent Tom Hardy appears to be ruining? Not so much. But don’t misinterpret my meaning. I still think Venom–and the other characters of the SpiderVerse–belong with Marvel […]

The Gifted – Trailer

The Gifted is the second series begat from the deal between Marvel Entertainment and Fox and it’s curiously conventional-looking, especially compared to Legion (the first series launched on sister channel, FX).

The Magnificent Seven – Official Trailer

  I think that Warner Bros, possibly with the exception of the upcoming Suicide Squad is terribly mismanaging their DC Films relationship (and Yes, I include the upcoming Wonder Woman in that estimation as well)–like Fox is doing with the X-Men franchise, only less successfully. But Antoine Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven? With Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt? Money […]
