The Incredibles 2 teaser trailer which premiered this morning does not offer a lot of detail, but it is whetting appetites for what may come. If the first frames are any indication, baby Jack Jack is going to be a handful and papa is not sure if he should be proud or afraid.

Although more than a decade has passed since the first movie, no time has passed for the Parr family. No plot details have been revealed for this film by director Brad Bird. Most of the vocal talents from the first movie are coming back. Confirmed story elements include a greater focus on Holly Hunter’s character, Helen. As for exactly what that means require waiting for new trailers or just waiting for June 15, 2018 to arrive.

For this fan, I would like to see an adventure that sees a new villain interested in the kid. Since he is an elemental polymorph, to exploit the various abilities he has can lead to all kinds of nastiness. While I can see Helen Parr possibly returning to the workforce, I think this will be more of a subplot to the ongoing adventures with the team. All the familial problems will still plague the Parrs. As to how bad it’s going to depend on how well they can integrate with society since that they do not have to hide out.

Michael Bay’s Transformers Has a New TV Spot & Tying the Film’s Mythology Together

7 Jan

Could there be a decent story in Michael Bay’s 5th Transformers movie outing? The Last Knight has a new television trailer, and it shows Optimus Prime behaving badly. The tagline of “Rethink your Heroes” suggests he’s been corrupted. He’s purple eyed and looking scary.

Including the previous trailer, there’s very little information to explain Prime’s transition. The last movie had him rocketing into outer space to search for the Creators, while carrying the Seed. While I doubt he’s going to ram that down their throat upon finding them, I suspect he did discover their whereabouts and because he was one to their many — they overpowered and reprogrammed him. He’s been left for scrap, floating helplessly in space. As the full length trailer suggests with the vortex (conical) shaped spaceship, could that be the Quintessons vessel? There’s not enough detail to say, although I am hoping these creators will be featured in this fifth outing.

Out of all the announced films for the year of 2017 that are gunning for the blockbuster position, is anyone as excited for the Fullmetal Alchemist live action movie as I am? Slated for December of this year, Fullmetal looks to have received a hefty shooting budget if the teaser trailer was any indication.

The movie follows the Elric brothers, Alphonse and Edward, in the fictional country of Amestris. In this world based off the manga series written and illustrated by Hiromu Arakawa, steam power is king and alchemy is one of the most practiced sciences.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 Teaser Trailer 2 Released!

3 Dec

By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

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.
