About Time! Disney Drops New ‘Aladdin’ Trailer And It’s Great!

For a couple of months Disney has been struggling with winning people over with their live action retelling of Aladdin.  It is impossible to have missed some of the memes making fun of Will Smith‘s Genie.  However, I have a feeling that they may have just changed the narrative with this new trailer.  Its awesome!

The trailer offers our first real lookat Mena Massoud as the street-rat Aladdin, Will Smith as the Genie, and Naomi Scott as the beautiful Princess Jasmine.

Check out the trailer below!

The film opens in theaters on May 24, 2019.

‘Hellboy’ Red Band Trailer and New Posters Released

Yesterday we got a couple of awesome new posters (below) advertising the upcoming R-Rated comic book based movie Hellboy. And with those posters an announcement of a new Red Band trailer!

Dark Horse Comics announced on twitter yesterday that at the stroke of midnight (Eastern Time) a new trailer would be coming. And as promised, the trailer was delivered. And Wow! It rocks! Check out the new trailer below.


The trailer shows just what fans of the Hellboy series would want – violence, blood, hellish demons, and hilarious quips.

The trailer and posters features David Harbour as the titular Hellboy, a half deamon half human superhero summoned to earth as a baby, raised to fight the hell spawn creatures that find their way to earth.

Alongside Harbour is Daniel Dae Kim, Milla Jovovich as the Blood Queen, and Ian McShane as Professor Bruttenholm (Hellboy’s adopted father.).

The first trailer was released back in December to pretty lukewarm reviews. Claiming that the tone was not what people were expecting. However, after watching this new trailer throw all of those negative feelings out the window! This movie looks awesome! The violent action scenes mixed in with hilarious wisecracks form Hellboy to the heavy tune of Smoke on the Water is perfect. Hellboy just rose to one of the most anticipated movies of 2019.

The film is slated to be released on April 12th!

New Official Trailer For ‘Dark Phoenix,’ Fox’s Latest ‘X-Men’ Movie

20th Century Fox just dropped their new trailer for their upcoming X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix. This newest X-Men film is adapted from the famous Dark Phoenix comic and after watching the trailer it seems to be pulling a few story points from 2006’s X-Men: Last Stand. Check out the trailer below!

The film stars Sophie Turner in the leading role as Jean Grey with James McAvoy returnig as Charles Xavier, Jennifer Larence as Mystique, and Evan Peters as Quicksilver. And also shows Michael Fassbender returning as Magneto alongside Storm (Alexandra Shipp), Red Lotus (Andrew Stehlin), Beast (Nicholas Hoult), and Nightcrawler (Kodi Smit-McPhee).

Now, the point of a trailer is to get people excited for an upcoming project. Did this trailer do its job? For me, no. First off they have spoiled the death of one of the main characters. Its not even an accidental spoiler. The entire trailer revolves around the death of Mystique. And as far as trailer structure goes, its messy – something that is probably reflective of the film its advertising. Up until now its been said that the main threat would be Jean who is taken over by the Phoenix force. But who are those guys on the train with the X-Men in chains?

After seeing this trailer I have to admint, I’m not looking forward to this film. And it is unfortunate, because this may be the last time we see an X-Men film that is handled by Fox. With the Disney buyout of Fox on the horizon this is an almost assured inevitability. Also, I have heard from someone, who knows someone, that has seen early cuts of the film. And their consensus – its not good, not only is it not good, its terrible. I didn’t want to put too much stock in the rumor, however after seeing this trailer I tend to believe it now.

However, take all of that with a grain of salt. We have seen great movies with terrible trailers before.

‘Detective Pikachu’ Trailer Has Dropped!

This week is the launch of a new Pokémon game, and with it we got a first look at Pokémon Detective Pikachu, with the lovable electric mouse being voiced by Deadpool himself, Ryan Reynolds.

Along with Reynolds, Pokémon Detective Pikachu stars Kathryn Newton and Ken Watanabe and is directed by Rob Letterman who is best known for writing the animated movies Monsters vs. Aliens and Shark Tale, as well as directing the first Goosebumps film in 2015.

I’ve known about this movie coming on the distant horizon for a while now.  I’ve been very negative on the idea of making a live action Pokémon movie, I’ve been even more pessimistic on Deadpool being the voice of Pikachu.  So when I heard that a trailer had finally dropped for this film I was ready to rip it apart.  And after viewing this trailer I can say with full certainly that this is a pretty good trailer – I liked it, shockingly!

The world that they have built with a noir type of atmosphere really works for this Pokémon world.  The jokes in the trailer landed and the voice of Ryan Reynolds coming out of Pikachu’s mouth is surprisingly funny.  The look of the Pokémon also way better than I could have imagined. I now have to publicly admit that I will be seeing Pokémon Detective Pikachu.

Now, a great trailer does not mean a good film.  All it means is that they hired the right people to put out good advertising.  I may still get my chance to destroy this movie.  Or I may end up really enjoying it – either way I win.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu will be in theaters on May 10th, 2019.
