Much of the advertising for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dean Men Tell No Tales has been conspicuous by the absence of Jack Sparrow. Sorry, Captain Jack Sparrow. Despite billions of dollars in the bank, it seems that Disney is keenly aware that Johnny Depp‘s schtick as the world’s best (or luckiest) pirate has worn a little thin, which is why the focus has seemed to fall on Javier Bardem‘s villainous Captain Salazar, who has a little history with Capt’n Jack that’s about to catch up to the both of them. In the new trailer, that history is given a little more light as “The Final Adventure” (?) begins. (more…)
With less than 2 months remaining, fever is growing for Marvel’s next Phase 3 movie, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2. The sequel to the surprise blockbuster is expected to be even bigger, funnier, and have even more classic songs than the first one. Tonight, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt showed up to debut the third trailer for the upcoming film.
It wasn’t just beer ads and trailers for sequels during last night’s big game. An upcoming science fiction film called Life premiered its second trailer and it looks absolutely amazing! Sure, the action on the field was pretty intense and certainly worth watching, but it’s a pretty well known fact that people just tune in for the commercials. Studios spend big bucks preparing their projected hits for these spots costing a whopping $5 million for every 30 seconds of airtime so the studio must be as excited to bring Life to theaters as they were to make this 2:30 spot at a cost of $25 million just to air. This is a trailer with some explanation so SPOILERS ahead (Duh).
In what has become a busy trailer day, we get a new look at Logan, the latest X-Men film, and the final film for Hugh Jackman in the role that made him famous: The Wolverine. People got pretty excited following the release of that first trailer, its dystopia tease, it’s Western flavour, and this latest trailer offers more than that. But it’s also less pensive, offering more action, and yes, more blood, as this is the first R-rated Wolverine movie. And on top of all that, we finally get to see a new key character in action as she gets a chance to clean her claws… (more…)
It’s Morphin’ Time! No seriously, because in this trailer, we finally see the Power Rangers morph. Following up on the initial trailer, which only showed the titular Rangers in their civilian identity as basically a 21st century Breakfast Club, discovering some mysterious coins that could lead to their destiny, but now we get a taste of that destiny. For those of you that have wanted, and waited, to see the Rangers in action, as well as Zordon, Alpha 5 and some Megazord awesomeness, then this is the trailer you’ve been waiting for. Behold the spectacle of the new Power Rangers! (more…)
This past weekend a new teaser trailer dropped for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and everyone went crazy. There previously was a “teaser” teaser trailer which gave us a few images to get us once again “Hooked on a Feelin,” but this new trailer gave us even more fun visuals and a brand new (well old) song to love. The first Guardians of the Galaxy movie was a surprise hit, so we know that the next film is going to be big. So it’s no surprise that the latest teaser for next year’s film already has been viewed a whole lot!
Few authors can lay claim to creating a cultural touchstone. L.Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz has been a childhood favourite for over a century, and NBC are now poised to bring us a retelling of the fable. Their venture down the yellow brick road is only the latest in a long line of adaptations and re-imaginings. Ranging from The Wiz, Oz the great and Powerful and Wicked to the iconic 1932 original. It’s also not the first story set in Oz to cast Dorothy’s quest in a darker light, with 1985’s Return to Oz introducing many a fresh-faced youngster to their first taste of existential terror. So what does NBC plan on bringing to the party?.
“They call it the Death Star” the trailer begins in the breathy, intense tones of Jyn Erso, played by Felicity jones. So these are the stakes: men in dark costumes are pressing glowing buttons and there’s a great deal of dust and lasers. We’re watching the new Teaser for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first standalone film from the Star Wars universe which tells the tale of how the plans for the Death Star first fell into the hands of the rebellion. The last teaser was jam-packed with action, this time around we’re getting a bit of heart as well. (more…)
In case you’ve forgotten, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is just a few short months away from release, and if you needed anymore convincing to see this thing the moment it hits movie screens in December, prepare for overload. Now, the first two trailers have shown us many things. They’ve shown us the woman too rebellious for the Rebellion, Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), and they shown us the ragtag group of freedom fighters she helps put together to jack those Death Star plans, but what this new trailer reveals is that the mission for Jyn is much more personal than the pending destruction of the Rebellion… (more…)
When John Wick first premiered, it was a pleasant surprise. Keanu Reeves showed us that he can bring the same high impact action we saw previously from The Matrix films in a film surrounding a lonely assassin coming out of retirement for revenge. Who thought a movie based on the death of a dog would be so awesome?!? After grossing almost $90 million on a $20 million budget (and quite a cult following), it’s natural that a sequel would get greenlit.
