A Quick Look on Dungeons and Dragons Honor Among Thieves Second Trailer and Merchandise Updates

26 Jan

Theatrical poster for Dungeons and Dragons Honor Among ThievesHow many classic monsters can viewers recognize in Dungeons and Dragons Honor Among Thieves second trailer? There’s one add to the list of what’s already known and overall, serves up nothing really news to what’s known which I wrote about some months ago.

Here, we are finally told about the tale: after Edgin the Bard (Chris Pine) and his merry team consisting of Holga the Barbarian (Michelle Rodriguez), Xenk the Paladin (Regé-Jean Page), Simon the Sorcerer (Justice Smith), Doric the Druid (Sophia Lillis) and Forge the Rogue (Hugh Grant), realise they worked for the wrong side, they have to do right. To do good according to the thieves way of living is a must, and it’s good to see some story reveal tie in to the film’s title.

After they accomplished one theft, they have another planned to correct their mistake. But things get hairier when the Red Wizards cometh to bring the end of the world. The plot is nothing special and the vibe suggests that this goofy gang of miscrents will find a way to do what’s right. Even though everything is foreign to them–including the use of the American spelling of the word for better marketing purposes here–they’ll find a way to correct that mistake.

But when this latest trailer reveals the undead will make up a mighty climax, perhaps there will be more surprises. I’d love to see an appearance of a Lich appear to put a wrench into the entire plan!

The Four Best Trailer Drops from Superbowl Sunday

15 Feb

Is it even possible to identify which of the nine trailers released during Superbowl Sunday are the best? To slightly borrow from J.R.R. Tolkien, there would be one to rule them all, and everything else would fall under the category of second, third and fourth best. Yes, it means I’ll be tuning into Amazon Prime’s attempt to unseat Game of Thrones with Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power. The teaser is enough to get me excited. I presume WETA will aid in the special effects production since much of this series is filmed in New Zealand.

 

 

Because of the limited number of genre pieces released, I offer my top three films that truly whetted my appetite.

On Vacation with The Addams Family 2

8 Jul

Addams Family Sequel Is Coming Halloween 2021, First Poster HereRelease Date:
October 1, 2021

The Addams Family are on vacation! While the release date for the sequel is unusual–it’s playing this Autumn–the idea is straight in line with their ideology to never do things when it should happen but at the worse time.

This film directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon looks to add to the kooky. We see them visiting Niagara Falls, The Grand Canyon and Miami–along with many other famous American locales.

There’s not too much to take from the trailer which recently released. We can expect a lot of crazy funky sit-com type situations may be comparable to the live-action iterations this series is based on. It doesn’t look like it’s going to follow up on how the family and neighbourhood have come together after the events from the last film.

Instead of the satire on being true to thyself and the look at modern society, this latest take is updated for the Millennial generation. We can certainly expect the family bond to tighten up (or should that be falling apart?) going on by this film’s end.

Jiang Ziya Quietly Gets World-Wide Release Oct 1st!

Oct 1st, 2020

Please check local listings for showtimes near you.

Well GO USA

Set for a world-wide release on the same date, the highly anticipated general Jian Ziya is set to make his mark! This animated movie was set to debut during Chinese New Year, but the Covid-10 Pandemic put a halt to that plan. This fighter is not going to take it, and although this release does not have the holiday to give it the box office support it needs, fans of this series will no doubt flock to it.

This retelling of Investiture of the Gods has its own built-in audience in China. While It’s uncertain where exactly this movie fits in the Fengshen Cinematic Universe’s timeline, those who are invested in this story will want to know more. Jiang looks like he can be the grandfather to Ne Zha, and the trailer (see below) show a much younger figure than the older, wiser individual.
