Final Trailer for the Fantastic Four Reboot Released

Standard

The newest, and apparently final, trailer for the Fantastic Four reboot is looking much better than many suspected given the relatively quick and mum nature of the film’s production.

The teaser is definitely worth the watch, and you get to the see the family of superheroes use their powers a bit more liberally than any of the other promotional pieces that have been released.

Given some of the drama surrounding the film, as well as the less than lukewarm audience expectations, the new trailer prods one to wonder if they’re pulling back the curtain a bit to drum up interest from potential viewers.

Check it, let me know what think. Hard to believe August 7th is already right around the corner.

Warner Bros. Releases Comic-Con Teaser for Suicide Squad

Standard

Earlier today, the first-look for Suicide Squad that was shown at San Diego Comic-Con was officially uploaded YouTube in all of it’s HD glory. This, of course, comes after a second-hand video shot from a phone was released over the weekend, as well as an action packed trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

This is the first time we’ve gotten a good look at all of he main characters in the flick, and it looks like a cartoonishly manical romp. Still processing my feelings on Harley Quinn’s voice and the Joker’s new look, but I think I’m going to reserve judgement until we see more in-depth footage.

The Comic-Con Teaser for X-Men Apocalypse Has Leaked

Standard

UPDATED 7/13/15 8:59 AM EDT:

Predictably so, some shaky cell phone video of the X-Men Apocalypse teaser shown to the lucky folks at San Diego Comic-Con has leaked.

If what I’m seeing is correct, it looks like Storm, Archangel, Magneto, and even Charles Xavier Psylocke may be the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse.

Check out the video while it’s still available, as there are never really any promises with these kinds of things. The video isn’t hosted by YouTube though, so it may stick around a little longer than others of its nature. Maybe if it’s shared enough, Fox will release the clip to the public? Wishful thinking.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Has Passed Away

Standard

Sad news for the world of video gaming today as Nintendo officially released a statement earlier today that company president, Satoru Iwata, has passed away due to complications from a growth on his bile duct.

Iwata was forced to miss last year’s E3 festivities due to health concerns over said issue, and showed up to an investor’s meeting in November looking alarmingly thin, sparking concern from those in and outside of the company.

Originally joining Nintendo as a programmer for HAL Laboratories in the 1980s, Iwata worked his way up from being one of the contributors to the games Balloon Fight and Earthbound, to taking the reigns as president from 2002 onward.

During Iwata’s tenure, Nintendo saw the release of the Gamecube, Nintendo DS, Wii, 3DS, and Wii U, each to varying degrees of success spanning the gap from disappointingly unsuccessful to cultural phenomenon.

Iwata was 55 years old.

AMC Releases Trailer for “Into the Badlands”

Standard

Thanks to shows like The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men, AMC has become a household name. This, apparently, has seemingly freed them up to take some risks as far as new programming goes, hence Intro the Badlands.

I haven’t been paying as close attention to this show as I have things like Better Call Saul and Halt and Catch Fire (which is insanely good, and you should definitely check it out), but this seems up my alley. It’s got a very Tarantino vibe to it, and it reminds me of a live action interpretation of a video game or an anime.

If AMC places this rights as far as time slot and day of airing, I think it could show some promise, especially considering that the public opinion of fantastical shows like this has changed for the better with things like TWD and Game of Thrones.

If you haven’t gotten a chance yet, check out the trailer below. Let me know what you think.

Denis Leary Discusses What Could Have Happened in The Amazing Spider-Man 3… and It’s Really Weird.

Standard

If there’s any truth to what Denis Leary has to say about what may have occurred in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, then it just sounds really… bizarre. Granted, Leary can be a bit of an odd ball at times, and we should take this with a grain of salt.

Check out the short clip from IGN below:

I was a big supporter of TASM2, but it sounds like it may have been for the best that Marvel worked out a deal to include the web-slinger in their cinematic universe.

IGN Interviews The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Melissa McBride, and Scott Gimple

Standard

IGN conducted an interview with Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Melissa McBride (Carol), and producer Scott Gimple at Comic-Con. Check out the video below if you’d like to see it.

Not a whole lot of groundbreaking stuff, but you get some insights into where the show might be going, and some behind-the-scenes info from season 5.

Interestingly enough, a now shaggy Gimple mentions that by being able to bring Morgan back in season five, the writers were able to get a jump on season six.

Also kind of neat, Andrew Lincoln says the way he wants Rick to go out is being killed by Carl as Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” plays. Sounds good to me!

I also thought it was kind of neat that Andrew Lincoln gave a shout out to Frank Darabont, the original producer of the show who had a messy falling out with AMC a few years back.
