When i was asked to cover E3‘s release of the new Star Wars trailer, I came close to crapping myself! An Episode 7 trailer? At E3? ALREADY???

Well, as you’ve no doubt gathered from the headline, E3 has NOT released a trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII….

But honestly–even if you’re like me and not big on modern video games–what we have here is damn near almost as good.  (more…)

Hear Grimlock Roar While Imagine Dragons Pound Out Weak Sauce Commercial Pop in Latest ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ International Trailers/TV Spots

GrimlockAgeofExtinction

What the fuck is an Imagine Dragon anyway? Aren’t all dragons imaginary? What a redundant name for a band.

Sorry. I couldn’t help but vent there, as I honestly can’t fathom how these ‘musicians’ became popular. Now that they’re contributing their muzak-ready drivel to Transformers: Age of Extinction, I guess we can use them as a baseline for whether or not the person sitting next to you has taste that jives with the lowest common denominator.

New ‘Godzilla’ TV Spot Focuses On the Human Element

Strangely titled “Nature Has an Order” (which would lead one to believe that it’d just be thirty seconds of Gojira stomping on that ass), the latest TV Spot for Gareth Edwards’ redux of Godzilla features more narration from Bryan Cranston. Only this time, instead of warning us about the government’s lies (in his best Ozymandias tone), he quickly illustrates the inherent human tragedy the apocalypse carries with it. Yet again, Warner Bros. and Legendary have put together an incredible piece of marketing that continues to sell Edwards’ film as the must-see movie of Summer 2014.
