SDCC 2017 – News & Trailers

Pacific Rim: Uprising (Teaser Trailer)

And rise we will

I’m so ashamed to admit that I haven’t seen Pacific Rim by Guillermo Del Toro, really. It’s definitely on my ‘to watch’-list, but with the abundance of films that come out each year, it always get pushed back and back and I never get around to it. I might have to change this now. Just because of this teaser. It looks great. It doesn’t give anything away from the story, nothing really. But the images look great. The appeal is definitely there. And with John Boyega (a bit more serious than we’re used) and apparently Scott Eastwood attached as well, this movie can’t be anything but great. If the story isn’t there, at least the images will look great and it will be a true spectacle. I can’t wait.

Wonder Woman #2 has been confirmed

Oh, she’ll be back

News_01It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody that, after the huge success Wonder Woman had at the box office, WB decided to make a sequel of it. It still hasn’t met all expectations, but her run isn’t over yet and I’m sure she’ll even surpass the sum Batman v Superman made. DC and Warner Bros finally found their way and it would be a total waste if they didn’t go further with this character. This news was nearly drowned under all the other amazing clips, trailers and news that was released at Comic Con, but for me it is an important one, so I wanted to add it in right here.

 

Justice League – Trailer

All In

This looks epic. After watching this trailer I’m left behind with jitters all over my body. The different action sequences look insane. The interactions between the characters are so interesting and funny. I’m a huge fan of Aquaman and The Flash, so I’m so happy to see they get their fair share of screentime and we get the first scenes underwater as well. I just hope they don’t go to dark with the story, but that they keep it a bit lighter that we’re used from DC. To be continued.

Ready Player One – Trailer

Finally we got images

This is another story, movie, event I’m hugely looking forward to. This seems amazing. I haven’t had the chance to read this book yet, but a lot of my friends have and they absolutely love it. When I heard Steven Spielberg would direct, my excitement for this movie rose and I have been eagerly waiting for a few snippets here and there. Off course they would release this trailer on Comic Con and I absolutely love it. I do get a bit of a Tron-vibe, but that is maybe because I don’t really know the story. I can’t wait to see this one and I’m sure it’s going to be an epic adventure.

Thor: Ragnarok – Trailer

The latest by our favourite God

I still have the feeling that I’m looking at a trailer for the next Guardians of the Galaxy. The way they use the music, the way they get a group of misfits together to overthrow a goddess in this case and save the world. I’ve been there and seen that. The only thing that does differ is the world their one. And Cate Blanchett looks just epic as Hela. Can’t wait to see her in all her forms and use her magic. I’m still very excited for this one, because Thor will forever hold a special place in my heart, but I do hope they didn’t lose too much of what him Thor.

Off course there has been so much more that has been released at Comic Con, but these are the ones that I am most excited about. What news or trailers were you excited to see or read about? What did I overlook? Let me know in the comments below and let’s discuss.

Movie & TV News (#4)

Three of the latest news fresh out of Movieland I’m most excited about

 

Stranger Things

News_03This is another series that just got a new release date and a new poster! I haven’t had the chance to watch this one yet. I know, I know… no excuses, but I just didn’t want to get up in all the hype. The trailer got me really excited, but with everyone loving and praising it, I wanted to wait a little bit until the storm settled before watching it, so I would be able to give my honest review of it. But it’s definitely on my watchlist this summer.

Now this poster has got me even more excited. The sky seems crazy with all the red and with the four kids standing and watching it turn and twist, a feeling of impending doom settles over you. The craziness is far from over if we can believe this poster. I can’t wait to watch this series and then continue directly with the second season. I still have a few months before October 27th is here.

Quentin Tarantino has a new project in the works

News_04Now this is a director that I can see tackling this project. If you know anything about the Manson Murders, then you know it was quite a shock in the entire movie world. With the death of Sharon Tate, the wife of Roman Polanski, and four other persons, this is a gruesome story and one that will impact Polanski in a big way.

We will have to wait to see what Tarantino will do with this story, but if he goes the same route as he did with Inglorious Bastards, we can expect a crazy film with the story loosely based on real events but with his signature style. I’m interested.

Outlander Season 3

News_01We finally have a release date for the new season on Starz. This is one of my favourites series of all times. I’m obsessed with Scotland and have been for years, blame it all on Braveheart (aka. my favourite film of all times). Whenever I hear bagpipes I lose myself in a sort of trance, so you don’t even want to know how I excited I get whenever the title song of Outlander comes on.

After a shocking first season and a second season full of twists and turns and heartbreak, I am totally ready for a more action-packed third season where hopefully we get some more scenes between Jamie and Claire. The first season was packed with cute and steamy scenes between these two and in the second season we see them apart as well. I hope the third season will be able to put them back together. Because these two together is just chemistry.

The use of history with the magical element and a love story that spans several centuries is just so interesting. The production design on this entire series is out of this world and the actors are subtle, but so strong in their rendition of these characters. I seriously can’t wait for september 10th.

 

What do you think? Which of these three news are you most excited about? Let me know in the comments below.

Movie News – New Pictures for Mary Poppins Returns

MaryPoppins_06Disney takes us back to Mary Poppins

Entertainment Weekly has released some new pictures of this highly anticipated film. I myself am so looking forward to it, especially after seeing the first picture. If I’m not mistaken we could only see Emily Blunt’s back with her typical little hat and she looked just perfect.

Mary Poppins Returns

And now with these pictures I’m even more excited. It looks magical with a typical Disney look to it. And also the pictures from the cast rehearsing spark my interest.

Have you seen these pictures of the concept art? I mean, these are gorgeous. If the movie is as beautiful as these pictures, then I’m sure we’ll have a heck of a movie. Check the full article right here.

Credits goes to Disney for these pictures…

Movie News – New Poster Alert

There’s a new poster for the latest movie with Jennifer Lawrence.

Mother!_01

by Darren Aronosky

Centers on a couple whose relationship is tested when uninvited guests arrive at their home, disrupting their tranquil existence.’ (IMDb)

The combination of Darren Aronosfky with Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Domnhall Gleeson, Kristen Wiig… This seems like such an amazing cast and under the direction by Darren Aronofsky, this movie just can’t be anything other than great.  

The poster is eerie looking, with a drawn Maria-like Jennifer Lawrence holding out her heart. The colours, the greenery, the flowers. It all seems so strange and yet totally mesmerizing.

The storyline doesn’t tell us much and gives me more the feeling that this is just a regular story, but I can’t wait to see the first trailer for this as to see what this story actually is about. 

Are you excited? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Movie News – We have a new Lara Croft

We’re getting a new Lara Croft and I’m so excited! You can find the news right here.

Croft_03

Alicia Vikander is the new Lara Croft. After several games and a memorable performance by Angelina Jolie, it’s her time to bring this epic character to life. Am I excited? Well, we’re getting a female kick-ass character, a sort of Indiana Jones, fighting her way through whatever this story will give us… Yes I’m excited. I want to know how she’ll portray this character and what she’ll bring to it. I think Alicia Vikander is a little sweeter and less intense than Angelina Jolie (though if you have watched Ex Machina, she can be really intense as well), so this new take on this character will be different and I can’t wait to see it.

Croft_04

I’m a sucker for a strong female character, because let’s be honest, there aren’t many out there. Although there is a good evolution in current movies, which of them mostly have one or two kick-ass female characters in them, it’s still not enough. We’re getting there with Wonder Woman and Star Wars (I mean Rey in VII & VIII and Jyn Erso in Rogue One). And these are great, but where is Scarlett Johansson in her solo Black Widow movie? Fans have eagerly been waiting for this one, but Marvel keeps on coming out with other movies. 

Croft_01

These first pictures got me excited and I can’t wait to see what other news will be dropped soon or even the trailer! How exciting will that be! Another kick-ass character for me to cosplay later.

What do you think? Are you excited for this movie?
