Marvel’s Doctor Strange Trailer 2

The first trailer was good. Then I watched it in 3-D and all the special effects popped out; I knew I had to see this in IMAX. Then the second trailer came out for SDCC and it just reinforced my 3-D plans for the film.  This looks like a supernatural INCEPTION movie on drugs. Mikkelsen is …

HBO Westworld Trailer! Creepy Androids And Cowboys

When I first heard that HBO was doing a series version remake of Westworld I was excited.  Not only because it’s up there with my other favorite classic science fictions, but the network should be able to do the 1973 film justice and take the Micheal Crichton story to a new level.

The DOCTOR STRANGE Teaser Literally Bends Reality

Doctor Strange01

Wow! If you ever want to impress me with a trailer, this is how you do it.  I don’t know how the overall film with be, but from this we do know that DOCTOR STRANGE will be a visual mind bender.  The city on multiple dimensional surfaces reminds be of Inception. I’m also glad this …

New Trailer – “LIGHTS OUT”… Nah Yo! I’ll Pay the Electric Bill

This is a bold statement I’m about to make, but I think James Wan is close to being my new John Carpenter.  Wait, you don’t know who John Carpenter is?  Halloween, The Fog, They Live?  He was a master horror and quirky film director that blew up in the 80s.  He’s one of my all …

DAREDEVIL SEASON 2 TRAILERS – PARTS 1 & 2

DD2 Shot

Netflix is combining the dreams of my childhood with the dreams of my adulthood.  They have given me what I’ve been wanting to see growing up, but they are also manifesting the stories that up until now have only been foreign territory for studios.  You can see the confidence that Netflix has in creating this …

Powder’s Little Brother? – Midnight Special Trailer (2016)

Country folk and Half Alien kids?  That’s just my guess as to what MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is all about.  The little kid with the glowing eyes (Jaeden Lieberher) may not have anything to do with aliens. He may just be on some X-Men mutant gene stuff.  Either way, this has a vibe that makes me want …
