Last season it was Hank who acted out, rebelled, and most dramatically, changed his look. One of the few perks of no longer being death prone and so easily clone-able, I guess. This season, it’s Dean who’s finding himself, and he’s morphed into some emo, hipster kid.
Check it out in this sneak peak of The Venture Bros. Season 5 premiere, “What Color is Your Cleansuit?“, airing this Sunday, June 2nd at midnight on [adult swim].
The next property DC and Warner Bros. are adapting into an animated feature is The Dark Knight Returns, and the pressure is on not to fuck this one up. Among most Batman and comic book fans this book by Frank Miller is a grandaddy of Batman stories. Dark Knight Returns focuses on an aging Batman who’s been out of the cowl for some time and what happens to Gotham in his absence that drives him back into the mask. It managed to both reinvent and define the character. Basically, folks are gonna be pissed if this animated film doesn’t live up to the source material.
This sneak peek doesn’t show much footage from the movies – oh did I mention The Dark Knight Returns will be split into two films? – but it does go into great detail on how they approached adapting such a beloved work as well as a chance to hear some of the voice work. It’s also subtitled in Spanish so hey, maybe you can learn a few phrases here and there.
The Dark Knight Returns is set in a near future where Batman is retired and Gotham City has slid into a dystopian state ruled by a gang of hooligans called The Mutants. The 55-year old Bruce Wayne is forced to don the cape once more, this time partnering with a female Robin to not only stop the Joker but keep the peace when the city falls into chaos after being hit by an electromagnetic pulse.
Peter Weller (Robocop) will be the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne, Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Robin. David Selby (original Dark Shadows soap opera), Wade Williams (Prison Break) as Harvey Dent/Two-Face; and Michael McKean as Dr. Wolper, the psychiatrist who releases the Joker from the insane asylum. The movie is being directed by Jay Oliva, who was the storyboard artist for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman movie Man of Steel, from a script by Bob Goodman.
The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 releases this fall, do you plan to check it out?
The last we saw of our band of zombie ambushed fellows, they were running for their lives from a horde of zombie wanderers. They ran from Hershel’s Farm, and headed into the woods and journeyed towards the prison. This next story arc for the show is pivotal and is one of the key areas where they are tested. In this sneak peek provided by the people over at AMC, we see the cast bloodied, injured, and filming in the jail.
Fans get a lot of promises that this season will be darker and gritty than the proceedings season, and will be a standout masterpiece of the show as a whole. Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) says that there is a big reason for why the survivors look as battered as the do. It’s all because of the direction of the show for Season 3:
“The pace of it is darker, harder, faster, deeper,” he says. “It’s incredibly dangerous, and it’s thrilling.”
Even though we have yet to see Michonne and The Governor, don’t be surprised to see a glimpse of her in trailer or sneak peeks for the show as it gets closer for the shows release this Fall.
After much anticipation, The Legend of Korra, the continuation of Nickelodeon’s hit series Avatar makes its debut on the internet. If you wish to get a sneak peek of the full episode before its official online release tomorrow on KorraNation.com . So far as I’ve checked, about 4 min ago, the video below still works so check it out while you can.
Thoughts on the first episode after the break. (caution the following thoughts do contain spoilers)
As we inch closer and closer to the release date, July 3rd is going to be a very interesting day for fans of the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. How will Marc Webb‘s reboot fair against the much loved (except for the last one) Sam Rami movies? Well some people already have a good idea. Sony Pictures did a worldwide sneak peak in 13 cities Monday showing off 6 minutes of footage from The Amazing Spider-Man. Live satellite feeds in Los Angeles, New York City, Rio de Janeiro and London with cast and crew on hand to talk about the movie.
If you’re like me and no where near any place that held one of these sneak peeks you’re left to just scour the net for scrapes and synopsis from the preview. In short, it sounds like most of it was favorable – with only few comparisons to the still fresh Rami films.
Webb is giving us a seemingly darker take on the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko web slinging everyday teenager. A clear difference from the Rami films is that Peter Parker is now a fugitive from the police, hunted by the law, even seen in hands cuffs surrounded by cops with their guns drawn at one point. For action, there is a breathtaking (so I’ve read) scene with Spidey diving off a radio tower as it collapses, deftly grabbing a hold of a building amid a shower of broken glass and debris followed by the requisite leap at the audience in 3-D. The Lizard (for what little you see) shown to be much more savage and vicious compared to Rami’s campier Green Goblin. Of course I am paraphrasing, since Sony didn’t have a sneak peek where I am, not that I am bitter.
Hit the jump for some examples of what people who actually got to see it thought, plus some new pics!
And the sneak peeks keep rolling in. Now, I know these have all been basically trailers for other trailers, but you’ll still watch them. Why? Because we’re desperate, desperate nerds and we absorb any and everything about the things we love.
First up, a teaser for G.I. Joe: Retaliation‘s Super Bowl spot,
Okay, I lied. I didn’t watch this sneak peek. Why? It’s for G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Even when paid I won’t watch this, I was burned too bad the first time. But I’m sure some of you loved it and good for you.
UPDATE! Here’s the full Super Bowl teaser for G.I. Joe: Retaliation,
Okay, this full teaser I watched and I have to say I’m slightly, just ever so slightly, intrigued. Bring in The Rock, a full on look at Cobra Commander, and a lot more Snake Eyes and I might reconsider my current ban on any and all G.I. Joe movies.
Next, a teaser for a trailer that’s not even advertising a movie! What is this world coming to? Here’s a sneak peek at Transformers: The Ride-3D,
Even Optimus Prime can’t convince me to spend more money on anything relating to Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise. Maybe the full trailer will during the Super Bowl, but only if it airs late in the game and I’m already sufficiently hammered.
What do you think about either of these teasers? Do you want to see either G.I. Joe: Retaliation or Transformers: The Ride 3D?
Check out this preview of an even larger preview for John Carter (formally of Mars) that will premiere during the Super Bowl on Sunday. It’s short and sweet, but it includes a chance to win a trip to next year’s Super Bowl, soooo – that makes it worth something, right?
I’m finding it difficult to get excited for this flick. I’m hoping for the best, but for some reason I get Clash of the Titans flashback whenever I watch any footage. I should have more faith in director Andrew Stanton, and for his sake I hope its successful. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
John Cartertells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
Andrew Stanton directed the adaptation of the classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The film arrives in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on March 9. Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church, and Willem Dafoe star in the film.
Also, make sure you stay tuned because I’m betting this is the first of many pre-Super Bowl teasers we’ll be sharing all this week.
What did you think of the John Carter tease? Are you more excited than I?
