Comic-Con San Diego was this past weekend.. it’s the big one.. the mother of all comic-cons.. This is where the heavy hitters pull out all the stops to impress the biggest of fan boys and girls. Which means today we find ourselves swimming in awesome new movie and tv trailers.. here’s everything you missed or want to see again..
It’s a little sloppy in spots like it was rushed together for this event but that’s alright with me. Batfleck is awesome. No hint of Superman yet which is cool. They also score some serious bonus points for both The White Stripes‘ ‘Icky Thump’ and for The Flash having ‘Rick and Morty’ on one of his TVs.
The slavery joke at the end seems a little shoehorned in.. and doesn’t really fit the tone of the rest of the trailer. That aside it’s a kickass trailer and should be a badass movie. Gal Gadot was stellar in her limited role in ‘Batman v Superman‘. Expect big things.
One last plug for what could end up being the biggest movie of the summer. Looks cool. Can’t wait to see it. Not much else to say at this point. Oh except to tell you that you could win tickets to an exclusive Edge preview screening August 3rd by entering here – http://www.edge.ca/contest/14572/enterContest
IT’S NOT ‘THE WOODS‘ AT ALL!! It was all an elaborate rouse! The secret Blair Witch Project sequel (technically 3rd installment in the series, don’t worry about number 2 though. haha number 2) was revealed to audiences at Comic-Con and the wait is going to be short to see it! September 16th. Remember how terrifying the ‘Blair Witch Project’ was?? Can’t wait to see this.
I’ll admit this is where ‘Superhero Movie Fatigue’ sets in for me a bit. I love that we live in an age where I get to see all of my favourite heroes as a kid come to life right in front of my eyes on the big screen.. having said that Dr Strange feels like a reach to me. I get he’s an important figure in the Marvel universe but I just can’t get excited for this. I’ll see it for sure but I’m certainly not counting the days til it’s release.
Batman. Lego. Take my money.
“Kong: Skull Island”
It’s got a weird kind of ‘Apocalypse Now’ vibe to it doesn’t it? Love Brie Larson, Loki is cool. Sam Jackson, John Goodman? King Kong?! I’m into it.
“Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them”
At least it’s an original idea, even if it is tweaked off of another franchise.
Jax from ‘Sons of Anarchy‘ finally gets to use his regular voice. I don’t know if it’s just the trailer that has this Lin-Manuel Miranada vibe or it’s the whole flick.. either way it looks decent.
Ugh. ‘Sherlock‘ is the best.
Im still on Season 1.
Haven’t watched ‘The Flash’ but Flashpoint is awesome story arc in both comic and DC animated form so this should be really great.
Never seen a second of ‘Prison Break‘ but I know he had very convenient tattoos.
There’s more but that seems like enough for now..
