Yeah, we’ve got another Independence Day coming for some reason. Another trailer has dropped. How is it?
Self-referential? Cliched? Half-baked explanations for the total absence of Will Smith? Yup. All that is accounted for. Like the last one, it looks like a lot of ideas and shots taken from other, better movies. See for yourself after the cut.
The folks over at Honest Trailers ran their own Batman v Superman contest and the winner (barely) was the Man of Steel. As a reward, Screen Junkies had to agree to make on Honest Trailer for 2006’s failed Superman reboot, Superman Returns. Yeah. Watch it after the break.
I’ve been a big fan of Jason Bourne in book and movie form for a long time. So it was disappointing that Matt Damon appeared to hang up his spy suit and move on to other things like being left alone on Mars.
Universal tried to keep the franchise alive with The Bourne Legacy, but I’m sorry Jeremy Renner, Jason Bourne, you are not.
But somebody in Hollywood said the right things or opened up the right briefcase full of money because a new Jason Bourne film is just around the corner featuring the return of Matt Damon as the lead character. Watch the trailer after the break and head to the theatres to see Jason Bourne on July 29.
Like the interwebs, I wasn’t around in 1960, but I’m sure if we were I would have been reading about people complaining that Hollywood didn’t need to remake Akira Kurosawa’s 1954 Japanese-language film Seven Samurai. But they did, and it is considered a classic western.
Fast forward to 2016 and we do have the interwebs and me and while I haven’t seen much flack about it, they are remaking that classic western The Magnificent Seven. This new version stars Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt and is directed by frequent Washington collaborater Antoine Fuqua.
You can watch the trailer after the break. I have to say that I liked it. I’d be curious to hear what die hard fans of the 1960 original think about it though.
Earlier today, Ryan posted the new Warcraft trailer, which is a thing that is happening. I’d posted a couple, and usually couple the trailer in question with something that looks much cooler. While looking for something to go with the new one before Ryan beat me to the punch, I found this thing for Electra Woman and Dyna Girl. I had a few thoughts.
What the hell was that?
Sid and Marty Kroft are still in business? Are those guys still alive?
Who the hell are these people?
Seriously, what the hell was that?
Look, I know nothing of this whole thing, but it seems to be a thing that exists. You know, like Warcraft. There’s a date attached for June. Anyway, trailer after the cut. Go nuts. It’s probably better than Krull.
Blab had a little technical issues towards the end but we managed to get out our latest blabcast as both an audio-only podcast (which you can listen to here or on any of your favorite downloadable sources) or as a video where you can see all of our fun facial expressions! In this episode we discuss the new Dr Strange trailer, FOUR new Avatar movies, and then provide some geek recommendations for TV (The Magicians), comic books (all things Star Wars), and books (The Rook, Discworld). Check it out now or head after the break for the full video.
Here’s what Tom had to say about the last Warcraft trailer when it dropped last month:
So, a new trailer for the Warcraft movie dropped. Trailers generally don’t say much, but I think this one set a new record for not saying anything. What is this movie about? I have no idea.
The latest trailer just came out and, well, Tom already said most of what needs to be said. Except for one thing: what’s up with the text “An unthinkable threat”? These are Orcs! You live in the world of Warcraft and you don’t think Orcs are a threat? WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING ALL YOUR LIFE? They’re Orcs. They’re…well…they’re your orcs. They’re like your El Guapo, everybody has one but yours happens to be actual Orcs.
This movie is going to be so bad. Check out the latest train-wreck of quick cuts comprising a trailer after the break.
X-Men: Apocalypse is coming out soon, and Fox has always come up with some unique ads for the current X-Men movies. A new one for Apocalypse comes in the form of a cheesy 80s “documentary” series with a very familiar voice acting as narrator.
