THE PREDATOR (2018) Movie Trailer

Ok, so we all know the original PREDATOR was 80’s sci-fi action movie gold. 1987 to be exact. The 1990 sequel is a cult classic. And the reboot of sorts, starring Adrian Brody, released in 2010 underwhelming the masses, but totally deserving of more praise than it received. Damn, that film released 8 years ago? Fast forward to modern times and 20th Century Fox, or should I say Disney, is booting up the old reboot machine again. From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of...

New RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 Trailer and Release Date

The good news is that RED DEAD REDEMPTION 2 is upon us and it looks glorious. The bad, we have to wait until October 26th, 2018. Sigh. This is the third trailer Rockstar Games has released and they just keep getting better and better. There are not many game franchises I gush over this much. THE LEGEND OF ZELDA, MASS EFFECT, and METAL GEAR SOLID come to mind, but the RED DEAD series holds a special place and they don’t come around all that often. America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt...

New ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Movie Trailer

After the game changing events of AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, fans need a palette cleanser. Enter the MCU’s next big screen adventure, ANT-MAN AND THE WASP. And for fan wondering, Marvel is doing something a little bit different here. Traditionally, the MCU flicks have released moving forward along in the timeline. This time around, we’re going back in time, about a year and a half by my estimate. This puts ANT-MAN AND THE WASP closer to the CIVIL WAR era rather than INFINITY WAR. By the looks of this new trailer, this looks like a lighter and funnier film than...

SyFy’s KRYPTON Is Here And I Just Can’t…

I love Superman. I grew up watching and re-watching the Christopher Reeve films. I’m on a regular diet of Superman comic books. I watched each and every episode of SMALLVILLE no matter how bad it got. I enjoy Superman’s animated adventures in all shapes and forms. I’m one of the few who actually adored SUPERMAN RETURNS and MAN OF STEEL and I kinda liked JUSTICE LEAGUE, mainly because of Superman’s arc. Oh, and I watch SUPERGIRL on The CW and get all giddy whenever Supes makes an appearance. So why am I not excited about SyFy’s new series KRYPTON? I...

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY Official Trailer Impressions

Love it or hate it, a Han Solo prequel film is happening. On one hand, we get to learn more about how Han and Chewie met, why Han and Lando have such a complicated relationship, and we get to see how Han acquired the Millennium Falcon. To some these revelations will be joyous, to others it will be completely unnecessary. Even I, a self-proclaimed STAR WARS addict who consumes just about everything Disney and Lucasfilm can throw at me, am a little bit hesitant with this one. Part of me really digs that Luke and Obi-Wan just bumped into...

JURASSIC WORLD 3 Finds Director and Gets a Release Date

I know, I know, JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM isn’t even out yet! And all I really know about it is that it will feature dinosaurs and an exploding volcano. Do I need to know more? Anyways, JURASSIC WORLD 3 (not the final tittle) will release on June 11th, 2021 and will be directed by Colin Trevorrow. For those keeping score at home, Tevorrow co-wrote and directed 2015’s JURASSIC WORLD. He dropped out of directing FALLEN KINGDOM since he was offered the job to helm STAR WARS Episode IX. Drama ensued, and he was replaced by J.J. Abrams and is now...

X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX and NEW MUTANTS Delayed

Well shit… I suppose we should have seen this coming with Disney’s recent Fox buyout. Not just because the X-MEN will soon be a part of the MCU, but because when huge companies get bought, shit takes awhile to adjust. X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX shifts from November 2nd, 2018 to February 14th, 2019. But wait, that’s “dump month”! Not a good sign. NEW MUTANTS shifted from April 2018 to February 2019, and now to August 2nd, 2019! Damn, also not a good sign. Phew, that’s a lot of movement. A part of me just can’t help thinking this will give...

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Movie Trailer

I watched all the HARRY POTTER films first and then read all the books. Think of me what you will. I love both. Ok, now that I got that off my chest, here we are. 8 HARRY POTTER films have blessed our eyes and now in true epic movie franchise fashion, we are getting a prequel treatment. It happened to STAR WARS, it happened to THE LORD OF THE RINGS, and now it’s happening to HARRY POTTER. Get use to it folks, this is but 2 of 5 planned films. Yes, there will be 5 of these. While I...

THE WITCHER’s Geralt Playable in SOUL CALIBUR VI!

All sign were pointing to this happening, and finally Bandai Namco and CD Projekt Red have confirmed that THE WITCHER’s Geralt of Rivia will appear as a playable character in SOUL CALIBUR VI! This is excellent news! While I am beyond stoked for a SOUL CALIBUR sequel anyways, this news is the cherry on top! This will be an amazing addition to the franchise history of cool guest characters. Remember Link from THE LEGEND OF ZELDA in SOUL CALIBUR 2 and YODA and DARTH VADER in SOUL CALIBUR IV? This is pretty much just as cool as those. I’m...

Top 5 Comic Book Picks: February 2018

1. X-MEN RED #1 / Marvel Comics Written by Tom Taylor / Art by Mahmud Asrar Anytime a Legacy X-character rises from the ashes is a time to rejoice. Jean Grey has been dead for a very, VERY long time and it’s great having her back. This debut issue starts super strong wasting no time jumping into the action. And it definitely had an intriguing enough last panel to get me hooked. My only compliant is that I would like more time inside Jean’s mind as she struggles to fit into her new world. A LOT has changed. She...

Netflix’s LOST IN SPACE Season 1 Trailer

Guilty pleasure alert! I kind of still like 1998’s LOST IN SPACE reboot film. Yeah, the one starring Joey from FRIENDS. I saw it a few years back, and aside from some shoddy CGI, it was still pretty entertaining. What does this all mean!? I’ll figure it out later. Fast forward 2o years…damn 20 years!…and we are rebooting a reboot. Cool. This time around LOST IN SPACE is returning to TV, well Netflix, in a 13 episode season chronicling the adventures of the Robinson family as they, ya know, get lost in space. The Robinson family, part of a...

DETROIT: BECOME HUMAN on PS4 Gets a Release Date

Thanks to a recent announcement on the Playstation Blog, we’ve learned that DETROIT: ALMOST HUMAN will be in our living rooms on May 25th 2018 exclusively for the Playstation 4. I feel like I’ve been waiting for DETROIT: ALMOST HUMAN forever. Ever since I was introduced to this universe, I’ve been intrigued and eager to get my hands on the final game. Plus, Quantic Dream is responsible for some truly epic games including HEAVY RAIN and BEYOND: TWO SOULS. This is something to get excited for and I suspect it will be a contender for game of the year. Check out...

BATMAN NINJA Animated Film Trailer

I shouldn’t have to convince anyone reading this that a DC animated film called BATMAN NINJA looks cool as all hell. The above trailer pretty much sums it up. Basically, I just want you to know this movie is real and it’s coming. Put it on your nerd radar. While Marvel may be king of the big screen, DC owns the animated straight-to-DVD landscape. Ok, that made me sound old as hell. Let me rephrase. The DC straight-to digital landscape. Side note: I’m buying this on Bu-Ray. I’m confused. Also, go see UNDER THE RED HOOD. Best animated Batman...

ANNIHILATION Movie Review

Art by Kitty Rouge If you haven’t already, go read THE SOUTHERN REACH TRILOGY by author Jeff VanderMeer. The three novels ANNIHILATION, AUTHORITY, and ACCEPTANCE are easily some of the most immersive science fiction books to come out in the past 10 years. Debatable I know, but I found the novels to be beautiful, poetic, often brutal, and thoroughly captivating. I’m not going to sit here and tell you novels are always better than films, but in this case, it just happens to be true. ANNIHILATION is based on the first book of the aforementioned trilogy. It centers on...

DEADPOOL, MEET CABLE Movie Trailer

Can you believe live-action X-MEN films have been around for 18 years! And in all that time, we have yet to see Cable. Well, as promised at the end of DEADPOOL, Cable is finally joining Fox’s cinematic universe. Or is it Disney? I don’t even know anymore. I’m confused. I think I just need to pretend Disney owns everything. Statistically speaking, I’ll be right most of the time. Ok, tangent over. Cable is easily my second favorite Marvel character right after his daddy Cyclops. Jean Grey is a close third. So yeah, anyone involved with the Summers clan is...
