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).
In 2045 the world is on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world.
When an unlikely young hero named Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) decides to join the contest, he is hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
The SDCC 2017 trailer for Ready Player One is unique. Enjoy.
Maddy Whittier lives in a house that, like the Mars biosphere training facility, is completely sealed off from the rest of the world – because Maddy has Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID), making her essentially allergic to almost everything.
When Olly Bright’s family moves in next door, he notices her looking out her window and is intrigued.
Based on the novel by Nicola Yoon, Everything Everything is a story of first love/coming of age/indomitable spirit.
Guy Ritchie made his bones (so to speak) on hard-edged crime films with wicked humor and striking visuals. Then he went big budget with Sherlock Holmes and provided a very different (but surprisingly canonical) consulting detective. Next up was the criminally underrated The Man From U.N.C.L.E. – the best non-Bond Bond flick since the first Jason Bourne.
Now Ritchie is dissecting and reassembling the Arthur legend in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – and it’s a very kinetic movie that is also, simultaneously, more than a bit of a slog.
Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Wonder Woman and it’s chock full of new footage – more battles, a few more quips and a sense of just how epic the film is intended to be.
Additionally, the trailer includes a good deal more of Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor – showing that he’s more than just a DID (Dude in Distress). This is a guy who may not have superpowers, but is every bit as brave as Diana, Princess of Themyscira – and very good at his job.
Going in Style is the rare remake that is better than the original.
That’s because it creates a plausible (if not entirely believable) set of circumstances in which three octogenarians are forced to consider the unlikely remedy of robbing a bank – and are smart enough to do it.
