I am so excited for Lucifer! Ever since I left the Supernatural fandom in a blind rage, I have been searching for another interesting pseudo-religious show, and I think I found it. Furthermore, the show is based on a loose adaptation of the character Lucifer from Neil Gaiman’s comic The Sandman and the spinoff comic Lucifer. Sadly, though, Lucifer does not look like David Bowie like he does in the comic. I guess we can’t have it all. But oh well, let’s talk about the trailer.
As a kid, my family actually really liked the Terminator films a lot. I don’t know what about them was so appealing to us, but we all loved them and watched them—the first two, at least—several times over. So when the trailer for Terminator Genisys started appearing in the commercial breaks of my TV shows, weird title spelling and all, I was pretty excited. Cautiously excited, but still excited.
By this point, E3 is in full swing, and when I started writing this, I was completely planning on having some sick trailer from the Bethesda conference to put here. However, fate had other plans for me. Today’s trailer isn’t a new game for me, nor is it new for many people around the world; however, it does mark a very important moment in Nintendo’s relationship with a certain series creator, Shigesato Itoi. Today, I want to give time to a series that my brother, and many other people, love: Earthbound. And with the release of Mother’s port on the WiiU, there’s no better time.
I’ve seen this trailer so many times in movie theaters at this point that I was shocked to realize that we hadn’t covered it here—especially given that we’ve discussed the ramifications of its casting choices in detail.
Given that the first trailer looked more like it was advertising a more boring Interstellar knockoff than a superhero flick, I am at least relieved that this one shows us characters with powers up close and personal. I’m still not sure if I want to see it, though.
I went to the theater to see Mad Max: Fury Road this past weekend, and surprisingly enough, I actually got to the theater in time for the trailers. (I have a bad habit of arriving at the latest possible second and missing all the trailers, which sucks for me, because I love trailers.) However, this time, almost all the trailers before the movie were horror trailers, so I spent a lot of time covering my eyes and wondering if I would have to spend the entire pre-movie with my eyes shut. Fortunately, right before Mad Max started, there was one non-horror trailer. Here it is right now.
I admit that I haven’t always been the biggest fan of Supergirl. It’s probably because the first Supergirl comic I ever read featured Superman putting his poor cousin in an orphanage and Supergirl barely ever got to fight any real bad guys. But as DC rebooted the character, over time she was given much more to do and was stereotyped significantly less. She remembers more about Krypton than Superman does and is even more powerful than him. I mean, the girl can even kick Darkseid’s ass. She is a great character. It amazes me that it took this long to finally get a Supergirl TV show. And I have to say, the new trailer gives me a lot of confidence that the show is going to be awesome.
When I went to see Age of Ultron ten-ish days ago, I found myself underwhelmed by the majority of the trailers. We’ve covered our disinterest in Batman v Superman already, and I would preferably look at dog shit for three hours over spending money to see Ant-Man. But nestled among the uninteresting trailers for an nth Mission Impossible movie and a third Insidious installment was an unlikely gem: the preview for Tomorrowland. For a film that wasn’t even on my radar before I walked into that auditorium, I’m pretty psyched to see it now. Continue reading
