CHOMP! TRAILER: THE MEG!

The trailer for the movie adaptation of Steve Alten’s best-selling novel, The Meg, has been released and it looks pretty scary (the Meg is a megalodon – a prehistoric shark that could swallow a good-sized human being whole).

The Meg has a terrific cast – Jason Statham, Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, Robert Taylor, Masi Oka and bingbing Li among them.

The Meg opens on August 10th.

In a dystopian future, most people try to escape their pitiful real lives by entering a cyberworld called The OASIS. When the OASIS’ creator dies, he sets in motion an Easter egg hunt with the winner gaining his fortune and complete control of the OASIS.

Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) and four fellow gunters (Easter egg hunters) team up to beat corporate monolith Innovative Online Industries (I.O.I.), fronted by the slick Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn) – who has hundreds of experts behind the scenes, feeding him information and taking hits in the games – to the prize.

If the quality could be maintained, it would be lovely to open each new movie year with a Paddington movie

Paddington 2 brings the same sharpness of detail, sense of whimsy, and whiff of danger that made Paddington a global hit.

NYCC 2017 – We Have to Go Trailer: Justice League!

Earlier today, Warner Bros. dropped the final trailer for Justice League.

It still has the kind of ponderous feel of a Zack Snyder film, but is leavened with some very potent humor (personally, I’m going to see Justice League for Aquaman’s somewhat flip attitude and zest for battle, alongside The Flash’s geeky awe and enthusiasm).

Justice league opens on November 17th.

You Shouldn’t Have Come Here Trailer: Tomb Raider!

With an Oscar®-winning lead and an Oscar®-winning director – Alicia Vikander and Graham Kin, respectively – you should probably expect a certain level of quality in Warner Bros. Pictures’ Tomb Raider.

The film’s first trailer suggests that young Lara Croft will be a force to be reckoned with – and Walton Goggins will be one helluva villain.

Tomb Raider opens on March 16, 2018.

SDCC 2017: Invigorating Justice League Trailer!

Warner Bros. Pictures unleashed (and that is the correct word) a new Justice League trailer at SDCC 2017 earlier today.

It sets up Steppenwolf as the villain (has the invasion from Apokalips begun?) and gives us a really good look at our heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash (Aquaman’s moment is particularly invigorating).

Also, more humor.

Justice League opens on November 17th.
