Star Trek: Discovery (First Look Series Trailer)

YES!!! Debuting on CBS television, then moving to CBS All Access, the first new Star Trek TV series in 16 years is on the way. Coming this Fall, Star Trek: Discovery! Full disclosure: I am VERY biased in favor of this series for three huge reasons: For one, because Star Trek. Second, there’s my major crush on star Sonequa Martin-Green (whose character went out like a G on AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ a few weeks ago). And then, yooooo, when Michelle Yeoh gives the order to ‘contact Starfleet’ because they have ‘engaged the Klingons’ … I got the same tingles when Captain Piccard (Patrick Stewart) delivered the classic line back in the day (“We have engaged The Borg”).

Before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise there was Discovery. Now, one of the most iconic and influential global franchises returns to television with Star Trek: Discovery. The CBS All Access Original Series arrives this Fall.

Maaaan, I got two boners. Nerd boner. And, well, it’s almost noon, right?

Black Lightning (First Look Series Trailer)

If you remember the B-rate “Black Vulcan” hero from the old, old Superfriends cartoon that used to come on in, like, the 1970s and 1980s… Don’t worry, this is NOT that. Not much cheese being teased in this DC series trailer. At all! Way to go DC. Looks like you folks are learning what Marvel / Netflix has to teach you about making small screen storytelling. Now, if the TV folks (esp. the producers of The Flash and Arrow) could pass some notes to the DC movie makers. Shot.

In fact, I wil go ahead as say it before you do: This trailer for DC’s newest forthcoming hero series – “Black Lightning” – looks and feels a LOT like some LukeCage-meets-Daredevil ‘ish. No shot, just saying.

(Oh, on that shot at DC movies, the first two ‘Superman’ movies were good (RIP Christopher Reeve), Michael Keaton ‘Batman’ vs. Jack Nicholson ‘Joker’ was groundbreaking, and ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy was dope. Respect due. Just that recent ‘Superman vs. Batman’ and ‘Suicide Squad’… at best, on a scale of wack to dope, they score a solid meeeehhh. Solid, but meh).

Marvel Presents ‘The Gifted’ (Series Trailer)

Okay! So FOX is trying to eat off ‘superhero TV’ now. FX is on board for a second season of “Legion” – a show that leans on the door of the X-Men mutant universe. Now the big network of the FOX TV family is kicking that door in and sitting at the grownups’ table this Fall. They even have Bryan Singer at the storytelling helm. He’s the one who brought us those first Patrick Stewart x Hugh Jackman x Halle Berry X-Men! Here’s the series synopsis…

What tore them apart is what will bring them together. From Director Bryan Singer, and in association with Marvel Television, comes the all-new FOX series, “The Gifted.”

Action-adventure family drama “The Gifted,” from Marvel, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.

Justice League (Trailer #2)

Haaa! Batman threw out that line from “Kick Ass” on him: His power is that he is ‘rich as sh!t.’

Hey, in pulling together a band of superheroes to defend the Earth against an alien threat, that has gotta help, though. Because… better snacks and stuff, right? But, of course, this coming “Justice League” movie is the next all-in gamble for DC to balance some huge L’s (Green Lantern, and lackluster Batman vs. Superman, looking at y’all). So an epic trailer that hints at a more epic movie-watching experience is a must.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash – it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
– KinoCheck International

Okay. This will do. Enjoy the trailer. Salivate while you wait on the November big screen debut.

Message From The King (Teaser)

From Cape Town, Jacob King arrived in Los Angeles in search of his missing sister. With a return ticket to South Africa seven days later, and $600 in his pocket. After 24 hours, he discovers that his sister died under strange circumstances…

Uh ohhhh. Yup! That’s what’s up Hollywood. Ya gaaaddaaamn right Chadwick Boseman is in town, and you have NO IDEA what he’s capable of…

Well, yeah you do. Don’t front. You saw him as Black Panther, giving several Avengers the business on the big screen, in the big Universe, and said to yourself, “Self, he needs to star in “Message from the King.” And kick some MORE azz.

Yeah. That’s exactly how casting gets done. Enjoy that teaser above by the way.

Geostorm (Official Teaser)

A couple of things… Star Trek: The Next Generation included planetary control tech in several episodes (read: we control weather in the future), and megabucks Bill Gates, aka The Nerd King, filed a patent for weather control tech way back in 2009 (read: the future is now). So, the geeks are already into this game deep. Now, all Hollywood has gotta do is not f*ck up a story we’ve been so ready for for so long.

After an unprecedented series of natural disasters threatened the planet, the world’s leaders came together to create an intricate network of satellites to control the global climate and keep everyone safe. But now, something has gone wrong — the system built to protect the Earth is attacking it, and it’s a race against the clock to uncover the real threat before a worldwide geostorm wipes out everything…and everyone along with it.
– Warner Bros. Pictures

In the movie “Geostorm,” Gerard Butler stars as Jake, a scientist who, along with his brother, Max (played by Jim Sturgess), is tasked with solving the satellite program’s malfunction. Lots of world-getting-f*cked-the-f*ck-up action in the trailer. Good start for the promo run.
