DuckTales First Look Trailer

Disney XD posted up a trailer for their new Duck Tales reboot! 


Commentary: Okay, first the "negatives."  The animation reminds me of the Mickey Mouse shorts. I like that in small doses, but not sure it would work for a full length cartoon.  And Huey, Dewey, and Louie's voices already annoy me.

Avengers Project Announced with Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics, and Eidos-Montréal

Yesterday, both Marvel and Square Enix had said they would be making big announcements this morning.  There was a lot of speculation that the two were connected.  I even heard speculation that it was about Marvel characters being heavily featured in KINGDOM HEARTS 3. 

But instead, what they announced was something called "The Avengers project" from Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics, and Eidos-Montréal!

We got a teaser trailer, so check it out:

The WWE and Jetsons team up in upcoming Direct-To-DVD movie

WWE / Jetsons

WWE announced their latest crossover cartoon with The Jetsons & WWE: Robo-Wrestlemania, available on Tuesday, February 28, 2017 on Digital HD and on Tuesday, March 14, 2017 on DVD.

From the trailer, it looks like Big Show ends up cryogenically frozen, and when he wakes up 100 years in the future, he decides to take over the world with an army of robot wrestlers at his command; another Big Show heel turn.  So the Jetsons head back to 2016 to bring superstars to stop him, including Alicia Fox, Sheamus, Seth Rollins, the Usos, and Roman Reigns.  


Here is the trailer..

Extended Cars 3 Trailer a little more optimistic...

Back in November, I had posted the first teaser trailer for Cars 3, which seemed to show Lightning McQueen getting smashed up pretty good in a racing accident.  

Disney-Pixar has released a new trailer, that continues the story from there:

Despicable Me 3 Trailer

Illumination Entertainment posted up a trailer for next summer's Despicable Me 3.


 

As much as I enjoyed Despicable Me, I thought the sequel was just okay.  It wasn't bad or outright insulting like many sequels (looking at you Cars 2), but there just wasn't anything all that memorable about Despicable Me 2.  Watching the trailer for Despicable Me 3, I kind of felt the same way.  Kind of cool to see Trey Parker voicing the villain, and the 80's design for Balthazar Bratt was great.  But this feels like a cash grab and not much else.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, they debuted a trailer for next year's Spider-Man: Homecoming.  


I am sure I am one of the few people who care about this, but so happy to see Jon Favreau back as Happy Hogan.  And I like the contining use of Iron Man as a mentor for Spider-Man.   The opening scene with the Avengers quip was pretty funny.  

Not quite sure how I feel about the costume.  It's not bad, just looks a little busy at times.

New Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Marvel has a new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer up!


I will admit, I am a little late posting this one.  Had the flu all weekend.  Real fun.  This video was already videoed 81 million times in the first 24 hours. Personally, I loved the first Guardians of the Galaxy, and I am really looking forward to the sequel on May 5, 2017! The trailer promises more of the same from the first movie.  Lots of wild looking alien creatures (including some giant monsters this time), stong well developed characters, and a lot of humor.  And Mantis?  I am still shocked that somehow probably the least significant Avenger ever is going to be in a movie!

Pixar going in a darker direction with Cars 3

When Disney/Pixar released the teaser for Cars 3, they clearly decided to go in a slightly different direction than the bubbly optimism from the first two movies…


 

I was pretty stunned watching it.  The teaser promises “From this moment, everything will change."  They sure weren't kidding.

Tale as Old As Time Gets New Live-Action Vision: Walt Disney's Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast

With the success of the faithful live-action translation of CINDERELLA, the folks at Walt Disney Studios have moved on to yet another Disney Princess to give the real-world treatment: Belle.

Just from the stills alone, it's apparent that a brilliant casting job has been done, particularly with EMMA WATSON (HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER'S STONE) as Belle and DAN STEVENS (DOWNTON ABBEY) as The Beast. Muscle-headed Gaston will be portrayed by LUKE EVANS of the upcoming PROFESSOR MARSTEN & THE WONDER WOMEN, and his comedic sidekick, Le Fou will be represented by JOSH GAD (PIXELS).

Valerian Trailer a Scifidelic Experience

From Director LUC BESSON comes this film adaptation of VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS, and the trailer for it is a mental whorligog of clashing environments, impossible physics, and illusory moments.

Set to The Beatles' "Because," this trailer immediately starts to put me in the frame of mind I was in when watching films like BLADE RUNNER, BRAZIL, and other scifidelic cinema treats (and a few not-so-treats, like JUPITER ASCENDING). It has all the right elements of "I don't know WTF I'm watching, but I want to see more of it!"

Nailed it.

New Doctor Strange Teaser Looks "Stranger" Than Before

Doctor Strange logo

(story submitted by Ronald Green)

"Stranger" is good for Marvel's upcoming movie DOCTOR STRANGE as it now banks on the comic book panels that fans have loved since the 60s.

DOCTOR STRANGE's first few teasers were a bit perplexing because the director seems to have taken his inspiration from Christopher Nolan's INCEPTION. Bending cities have so far been the theme of the previous DOCTOR STRANGE teaser clips. Now, it would seem that the creators have decided to show that the movie will be sticking to its roots; the Doctor Strange that Steve Ditko created.

Below is the latest DOCTOR STRANGE clip.

Power Rangers movie teaser!

Lionsgate posted up a first look at the new Power Rangers trailer.  I will say up front, I hate when movie trailers use a modernized version of one of my favorite songs (in this case "I Walk the Line").  And I have been struggling with the idea of a angsty remake of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.  All that said, I actually really liked this trailer far more than I expected to.  I am actually looking forward to this movie now.  Power Rangers comes to the big screen in March 2017...

LEGO BATMAN MOVIE Trailer Introduces Batman...and Son

The LEGO Batman Movie

Yes, that's right, the next LEGO animated feature film is THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE. It focuses on the Dark Knight having to take responsibility for raising his son. And if you're thinking Damian Wayne, you couldn't be more off base.

The idea of Alfred taking charge of the man-child that is the LEGO Batman character is absolutely in character, and totally hilarious. The nod to the many costumes of Batman are a nice touch, although I cringe at the new Robin costume routine. And the trailer also offers up the most profound statement on the relationship of Batman and Bruce Wayne:

"Does Batman live in Bruce Wayne's basement?"

"No! Bruce Wayne lives in Batman's attic."

Enough philosophizing. You want to see the trailer. So here it is.

Wonder Woman and Don Draper? Keeping Up With The Joneses Trailer Released

Gal Gadot Jon Hamm Keeping Up Joneses trailer

Just to get it out of the way right up front, I saw Zach Galifianakis listed in the credits, and was looking for him -- not realizing I was seeing him. Zach's really gotten into shape -- good on you, Zach Galifianakis!

Now on to the trailer:

Galifianakis and Isla Fisher (NOW YOU SEE ME) play a typical suburban family who become suspicious of their new neighbors when they find them to be "impossibly gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated." The Joneses -- Jon Hamm (MAD MEN) and Gal Gadot (WONDER WOMAN) -- do end up being more than they seem. They're covert agents, and their lives are more adventurous and upscale than James Bond's.

Newest MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME Trailer Sparks Curiosity, Imagination

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

I haven't read the series MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, even though I've been aware of it, and have thumbed through it in bookstores. Now, having seen this trailer for the upcoming film, I want to read it more than ever.

The story is reminescent of UNCANNY X-MEN, back in the not-so-long-ago day when it was comprised of truly unusual mutants. There's a little girl with a monstrous mouth on the back of her head. There's a boy who's invisible. There's Emma (Ella Purnell), a girl who's lighter than air. There's a headmistress, Miss Peregrine (Eva Green), who cares for them all.

And there's Jake (Asa Butterfield), who believes he is completely normal, but who must discover his own peculiarity so that he can take up the hero's mantle and save them all from people like Barron (Samuel L. Jackson).

Assassin's Creed First Trailer Packed with Fight Scenes and Something Like Music

Ubisoft Assassins Creed Michael Fassbender movie trailer

He was an executed man. He now no longer exists. But he is alive -- and being trained to become an assassin.

This is great! I knew there was a rumor out there that Shane Black was going to helm the next REMO WILLIAMS: THE DESTROYER movie, but I didn't think it was coming out this... Wait a minute, that's not Master Chiun. And why are we in The Matrix? Oh my God, someone turn off that Kanye West music!

Okay, so I'm kidding. A little. While the plot of ASSASSIN'S CREED is (cough) similar in its initial concept to Warren Murphy's assassin, it veers wildly from there into a science fiction process of the restoration of genetic memories. The assassin is Callum Lynch (Michael Fassbender), and he has been brought to The Animus so that he can relive the memories of his ancestor from 500 years in the past, during the Spanish Inquisition.

Trailer Alert: Voltron Legendary Defender is Explosive!

Dreamworks has released an all-new trailer for the explosive return of Voltron: Legendary Defender, which makes its debut on Netflix June 10, 2016!

(Skip to the end for the trailer)

VOLTRON: LEGENDARY DEFENDER is not a reboot, not a continuation but a reimagining of the fan-favorite science-fiction saga, promising action, comedy, and adventure. The series will launch with an hour-long origin story called “The Rise of Voltron,” and will be followed by 10 episodes.

The animation is worthy of a Dreamworks production. As I watched the trailer I laughed, became excited, and I got chills. Yes, I'm a Voltron fanboy and it was one of my favorite cartoons as a child. This new show will be exciting for me and I can't wait to share it with my kids.
