A new teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is now out, released in part due to Comic Con Experience in Brazil taking place this weekend by James Gunn on Twitter, and people can start this feeling right away. If only fans can ooga-ooga ooga-chaka tickets sooner than later, because everything we adored from the first film is here in the second. All the intense energy, the humour and love had for the first film will no doubt be transferred to second. Baby Groot will easily steal the show, and merchandise sales will no doubt go through the roof for this sapling now a few months older.

No timeline has been established into when the shenanigans resume in-universe. It’s a safe bet a few weeks if not months have passed. When considering the bomb-loving Rocket Raccoon has built a nuke that it will kill everybody in a huge radius, just what this team has done has me curious. Maybe the explosive is meant to kill that huge octopoid like creature? The only “plot” detail known is Kurt Russell plays Peter Quill’s father, a living planet known as Ego.

The montage set to Sweet’s “Fox on the Run” in the trailer may suggest the team is being chased yet again. The threat is uncertain. Until the release date nears, we can all wait for May 5th, 2017 to arrive in bated breath.

The Second Ghostbusters 2016 is a Slight Improvement!

18 May

I must admit, this second trailer is far better for enticing me to check out Paul Feig‘s reboot. My reason to see this film is to find out if Kevin (Chris Hemsworth) succeeds at becoming a Ghostbuster. I haven’t watched this actor’s other works where he’s working on honing his comedic chops, but to see him dressed up as a nerd is appealing. To see him, as this trailer reveals, turn sinister and ride off somewhere to take on a potentially villainous role … Well, I’m sold! This actor has played more charming roles, and to see him as menacing as Vigo the Carpathian has me curious.

Even if he succeeds at being exorcised or he has a bigger role in the film than previously led on, I wonder if he will equalize the status quo of an all-female paranormal team. Since the animated version had Janine Melnitz as a Ghostbuster to bail the guys out, I have no problems with any role-reversal going on. Fans owning the box set of this great animated series can check her out in “Mr. Sandman, Dream Me A Dream,” “Janine Melnitz, Ghostbuster,” and “Jailbusters.” In the Extreme series, she put on the uniform again, as I recall. I’d love to see a nod to the animated series approach to accepting new members, although I doubt the writers of this film even bothered to look at the past material.

The Force Awakens Final International Trailer

10 Dec

ForceAwakensOfficial1By James Robert Shaw (The Wind up Geek)

The lastest and last Star Wars: The Force Awakens international trailer has been released and it clarifies a few things in the film. If you don’t like spoilers then I suggest you turn back now because this new trailer will ruin things for you. Not only do we learn things like how Han Solo is introduced in this film but we also learn what role deceased Sith lord Darth Vader will play.

The rough translation of the introduction: “Hello everybody, I’m LuHan, I’m very pleased to serve as China’s ambassador of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Follow me and light up the lightsabers. Enter the planet, awaken the force. Next, let us watch the Chinese version of a special trailer.

Latest Force Awakens Trailer Gives Fans a Taste of the Action!

Snoke: “There’s been an awakening. Have you felt it?”

Ren: “Yes.”

Snoke: “Even you have never faced such a test.”

Ren: “It is time.”

And with those words from Supreme Leader Snoke (played by Andy Serkis) to Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver) we start this newest trailer off with a bang. So far much of what we have seen has been character development but this trailer gives us a taste of how epic many of the battles will be both in the air and on land. We also get a peek at the “Starkiller Base”, the home base of the First Order, an army based off of the Galactic Empire.
