After decades of development, we’re finally seeing the next chapter in George Miller‘s Mad Max saga. Months after the reveal of the teaser trailer at this years San Diego Comic-Con comes the first full two and a half face melting minutes of Mad Max: Fury Road in the form of a full theatrical trailer. In Millers own words, the movie is a “a western on wheels” and a “105 minute car chase” and this trailer solidifies that (ok, maybe I don’t see the ‘western’ aspect just yet but I am sure it’s in there. Somewhere.) It’s bombastic, sweeping, epic. It’s everything that Miller gave us in The Road Warrior (or Mad Max 2 depending on where you live,) doubled, doused in gasoline, set on fire and pushed off a cliff while some dude dressed like he failed his GWAR audition cackles maniacally.
It’s safe to say that this is a highly anticipated movie (personally I’ve been waiting for it after the first 10 minutes of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, seriously. what the crap was with that movie? Why was he walking everywhere? What the hell was up with the kids from Peter Pan in the cave… Why is everyone talking so much and not impaled on the grill of a semi-hauler with spikes welded on to it?)
The trailer does a great job of upping that anticipation. Check it out. (more…)
This time on the show, we’re talking about Star Wars and a bunch of stuff that isn’t Star Wars (but mainly Star Wars,) so buckle in for some talk about Star Wars ’cause we’ve got the teaser trailer, the careful and calm dissection of that trailer, adorabot naming rights, the finer points of DYI light sabery and, disbelief over the John Boyega hate.
Oh, and the other stuff? How about: (more…)
As promised in yesterday’s teaser, today is Judgement Day…. and by that I mean the day we judge our first look at the latest installment in the Terminator franchise.
Yes, the first full trailer for Terminator Genisys hit the ‘net today and as far as first looks go, it doesn’t look half bad. We have a new Sarah Conner (Emilia Clarke,) a new Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney,) and even a new John Conner (Jason Clarke,) sporting more facial scars than any actor in the role ever! More mean it’s good, right?
The real good news is that the Terminator remains the same. Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger returning as the (a) T-800 is not news, we’ve known for a while now that he’ll be back as the aged cyborg from the future that raises this new timeline version of Sarah Conner since the history has been officially reset in this apparent soft reboot. At first look, the trailer eases some of the concerns many of us had about this redux of the franchise. (more…)

While taking his latest round-up of proverbial high fives (and probably a few literal ones) with The Guardians Of The Galaxy hitting DVD/Blu Ray, Director/Filmmaker/Raccoon Enthusiast, James Gunn, had a sit down with IGN and the topic of the recently announced slate of DC Comic movies came up.
The truth is, it’s a list of titles, and if they’re done well they’ll be good. If they aren’t, they won’t be good. But I think we have a little bit more of an idea of what we’re getting with Marvel. I mean, we know the actors, we know the characters — we’ve seen movies with these characters. You have some idea of what’s going on already. We’ve told a big part of the story. With DC, they haven’t told the story yet. [via IGN]
Pretty reasonable, right? Well, reason has no place on the internet. DC adherents took to arms, Marvel purists used it as a rallying cry. Many caps-locks were used and someones mother probably had her purity put into question. Here’s one of the responses that Gunn received. (more…)
More specificity! (more…)
