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.

Terrifying First Look At ‘The Curse Of La Llorona’

A first look trailer for the James Wan produced film, The Curse of La Llorona, has hit the web and once again shows that anything that Wan touches will haunt your nightmares.

Wan is responsible for such terrifying horror franchises as The Conjuring and Insidious.  Now he brings us the story of La Llorona, a crying woman who lives between heaven and hell – cursed by her own hand when she drowned her two kids.  The film is directed by Michael Chaves, who Wan has picked to direct The Conjuring 3, so this proves that the horror director/producer has a lot of faith in Chaves’ capability in directing horror.

The Curse of La Llorona stars Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Patricia Valasquez, Marisol Ramirez, and Sean Patrick Thomas. The film is set for a release date of April 19, 2019.  Expect to be terrified.

Aladdin Teaser Trailer!!

Disney has finally released their first look at their live action Aladdin in the form of the biggest teaser trailer ever.  Just yesterday we got our first look at a teaser poster, and many speculated, correctly, that they would drop a teaser trailer toady – which you can see below

The film is set to be remake of the beloved animated feature with original and new songs written by Benji Pasek and Justin Paul who did music for the beloved musical The Greatest Showman.  The film will star Billy Magnussen as Aladdin, Will Smith as the Genie, and Naomi Scott as Jasmin.

While this teaser trailer doesn’t show much in the form of narrative, nor does it show any of the main characters outside of Aladdin himself, it does give just enough to know that this movie just may be that “diamond in the rough.”

Aladdin is set to be released on May 25th, so be prepared for more promotional material in the coming months.

What did you think of this trailer?  Is it  enough to get you excited, or are you still holding out?  Leave a comment below and let me know what you think.  We can make a discussion  out of it.

‘Bumblebee’ Releases A New Awesome Trailer

If you didn’t know by now, Bumblebee will be coming out on December 21st of this year and it is a prequel to the already existing Transformers franchise that first stated back in 2007.  A trailer for said movie just dropped and surprisingly its – good!

Bumblebee will be the first movie directed by someone other than Michael Bay.  Kubo and the Two Strings director Travis Knight sat behind the wheel on this, and for months has been promising a different type of Transformers movie.  And he proves it in this trailer, by showing that the film has heart.

First Official Trailer for Captain Marvel!!

The first trailer for Captain Marvel debuted today on Good Morning America, and introduces academy award-winning actress Brie Larson as the very anticipated Captain Marvel in the continuing Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We got our first tease of Captain Marvel in the post credit scene in Avengers: Infinity War, just as Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury became dust due to Thano’s triumph over the Avengers (spoiler, I guess, if you have not seen the movie by now).

The trailer doesn’t reveal much of Captain Marvel’s story, however it does show a lot of cool shots from the movie.  I get the feeling that Marvel Studios is holding back a lot of the “wow moments,”  and are using this first trailer as a way to introduce us, the audience, to a relatively unknown character.

Captain Marvel will be in theaters on March 8, 2019.
