It’s tough being the CW, they already have so many successful programs that they only picked up three for the fall, and only two of them will debut in October. The odd man out is Archie. Well, make that Riverdale, the new CW series based on the long-running comic book character and his friends from super-producer Greg Berlanti (whose superhero series make up 40 per cent of the CW’s fall programming). You’ve heard for a while that this is not going to be your mother’s Archies, as Berlanti and Co. were going for something “modern”, “dark”, and “subversive”. Prepare to click all three boxes as you sink into the sorted and scandalous world of Riverdale. (more…)

Second ‘Ghostbusters’ Trailer Hopes You Can Handle It

ghostbusters-greenmist-photo-700x468

If we were being kind, we would say that the first trailer for the rebooted Ghostbusters was met with mixed results. If we were being less kind, we would say that it didn’t sell a lot of people on the idea, and that a certain subset of critics were driven to the brink of insanity about it, downvoting the trailer on YouTube because girls can’t be Ghostbusters apparently. Maybe that’s why Sony chose to release the new trailer on Facebook instead. Indeed a second trailer has been posted this morning, and if you had legitimate criticisms of that first look at the film, this new trailer will likely not make a new case to get excited about it.

The internet was created to be an open forum of ideas and opinions. The problem is that not all of those opinions are going to be positive, or even fair. As the saying goes, everyone’s a critic and no-one understands this better than the cast and crew of the upcoming remake of Ghostbusters starring Kirsten Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

Matt Damon! After 2012’s experiment in making Jeremy Renner the inheritor to Jason Bourne, the real deal is back for the fifth film in the franchise called simply Jason Bourne. A lot’s happened in the nearly 10 years since The Bourne Ultimatum: global recession, austerity throughout Europe, Wikileaks, Snowden, the Syrian refugee crisis… And it’s all Jason Bourne’s fault! Just kidding of course, but given all that, is it any wonder that Bourne disappeared to join Third World Fight Club? At least he’s stayed in shape because as the new trailer shows, there’s going to be a lot of running, jumping, shooting, punching, driving, riding, falling and crashing for Bourne in Bourne. (more…)

If there’s a common criticism to the 2014 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles other than “It sucked”, it’s that the four titular martial arts performing adolescent amphibians seemed like supporting players in their own story. Perhaps the filmmakers, and producer Michael Bay, heard that criticism because this latest trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows features a lot of Turtle action. The new poster just released also features the Turtles prominently. May we so bold as to suggest that in the coming sequel, the film will let the four heroes the movie’s named after to finally come “out of the shadows?” [Please clap.] (more…)

While Star Wars fans may have to wait until 2017 for the official sequel to The Force Awakens, we still have a lot to look forward to in 2016. This December will bring us Star Wars: Rogue One, a prequel to both The Force Awakens and the original trilogy. Ever wondered how those brave rebels first stole the plans to the Death Star? Who wouldn’t? If it wasn’t for them, the legendary events of the original trilogy would have never happened. This December will finally give us some insight as to how this intergalactic heist took place. With ten more months to wait, December 16th seems like quite a long wait. Fortunately, the first teaser is coming much sooner than we thought. (more…)

After a three week break, the Legends of Tomorrow return this Thursday with more time travel adventures as Rip Hunter and the gang work to undo the centuries-spanning evil of Vandal Savage. When we left the Legends, some of them were stuck in the not-so-idyllic 1950s while the others disappeared back into the time stream on the Waverider, and what happened to Heatwave was never really explained… But now, in the back half of the season, things seem to be really heating up (so to speak). This new trailer for the show reveals old faces, younger faces of beloved characters, and the beat up face of the man called Jonah Hex. (more…)

x-men_apocalypse

It’s been a busy trailer week in general, and the reason you know is because this new look at X-Men: Apocalypse just came out under the cover of fog. Perhaps they wanted to get some buzz going in advance of Daredevil coming out this weekend, and Batman V. Superman coming next weekend, but really, it’s just a little over two short months till this new X-Men adventure is released, so they have to get that buzz going. It’s been a good year for the franchise so far thanks to the mega, mega success of Deadpool, so can the Apocalypse keep the good times rolling (so to speak, because, you know, Apocalypse). (more…)

It’s not the most hotly anticipated sequel of the year, it probably doesn’t even make the Top 10, but Now You See Me 2 is a thing that’s being released this summer. Now You See Me was a decent hit in 2013, a fun and frothy little adventure about four talented young stage magicians doing obviously CGI magic tricks to rip off vicious old men Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. Well given this new trailer, the movie should actually be titled “Now You See Me 2: Grumpy Old Men.” From the looks of it, Freeman and Caine will chase the Four Horsemen ’round the moons of Nibia and ’round the Antares Maelstrom and ’round perdition’s flames before they give them up!

Time travel. Kids with superpowers. Gothic setting. Franchise potential. Based on a best-selling book. Is there a box that Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children doesn’t check? The movie based on the 2011 New York Times best-selling novel by Ransom Riggs – his first book by the way – will be released later this year as a big budget movie with an all-star cast, and now we’re getting our fist look at the film in a new trailer. We here at Nerd Bastards listed the film as one of the 10 Non-Comic, Non-Sequel, Original Films Worthy Of Your Time In 2016, so does this trailer live up to our expectations? (more…)
