SYFY Set To Tell The Story Of ‘The House Of El’ On “Krypton” (Trailer)

Okay, I’ll be there for this. Not an avid fan of SYFY series, but the channel has put out a couple of gems. Hope this one is good.

The legacy of the House of El is no longer safe. Brainiac is coming. Rao help us all.
Krypton premieres 3.21 on SYFY.

In particular, I want to see how the ‘House Of El’ will play out. Jor-El – father of Kal-El (aka Superman) – and most of the El ancestry is not known to us; which is good because that means there is a greatly-reduced chance of making fanboys and purists upset.

And there has been talk of the Kryptonian deity Rao on The CW series “Supergirl.” I’m interested in that story angle, too. Seeing as how Superman is pretty much a ‘god’ on Earth… what does a god’s god and religion ‘look like’ in this canon?

Of course, there is Brainiac. If they f**k that story arc up there will be consequences and repercussions!

Donald Glover Goes Where Only Billy Dee Williams Has Gone Before In This New “Star Wars” Story (Trailer)

Memorial Day release date. Doooope! Wonder why someone did not think of this before. Well, they probably did; which is why we get this movie gem in a few short months. “Solo” is a Star Wars Story that folks loyal to the canon NEED in their lives. Han Solo has been, at best, an ancillary character in the stories told as part of the SW franchise thus far. Why not put him front and center in a flick.

What’s great about this is that all the folks involved are likely attached for love of the story. Gotta imagine back when Harrison Ford was Han, he had no idea just how big these stories that happened long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away could get. But bet good money that Donald Glover (playing Lando Calrissian) knows.

We are NOT in ‘Atlanta’ anymore. Definitely. Ha! Enjoy the trailer.

This Forthcoming ‘Stargate’ Sequel Series Takes Us Back To The “Origins” Of The Series (Trailer)

Yup, they are doing a prequel jawn. So… can we go through a ‘Stargate’ to go back to before they were going through Stargates? No. They don’t work like that? Stargates ain’t real? Whatevs haters. Watch the series trailer.

You Want This “ZVP” Movie. You NEED This Epic Action/Sci-Fi/Martial Arts Short Film In Your Life (Video)

On everything, this is EVERYTHING!

So alright, there is the trademark corniness and poorly-executed effects to get by… that is inherent in most ALL the dope old school martial arts flicks / westerns / grindhouse films (so do NOT trip)! But this is a most AWESOME way to waste a few minutes of your day.

I did. And do not regret it. At all.

(Neither will you, once you get to the surprise twist!)

Gaming/Relationships: Man Marries The Anime Character Of His Dreams (Video)

Hmm… file this under, “Naaaah, not crazy at all. Do you, um, player!”

Japanese adult game developer Hibiki Works recently performed a VR assisted wedding between a man and the anime character of his dreams. The wedding – which actually took place in a chapel in Tokyo – was part of Hibiki Works’ promotion of their upcoming game “Niizuma: Lovely x Cation.”
– Vocativ

So, question: With the virtual wife concept… Would that be ‘death do them part’ after losing one life on the video game; or is this an ‘all lives matter’ situation (like, you have to stay with the new virtual spouse through all your game lives).

Best. “Black Panther” Teaser. Ever!! (Trailer)

Okay, so Wakanda is not real. But styling its geography, geopolitics, and people makes the “Black Panther” movie real enough to reward watchers for agreeing to suspend disbelief. In other words, we don’t feel stupid for believing in vibranium-fueled fights… in ancient hidden cities laden with high-tech… spaceship-looking flying back-and-forth… bustling cityscapes where many random vehicles, streets and buildings get wrecked…

If the storytelling is good, we will be here for it all. And from what this trailer is showing us, the storytelling is gonna be good.

Action-packed but so ‘real’ and so good! So really good it’s surreal!

Enjoy the trailer thoroughly.

Watch The Teaser For “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” (Trailer)

The Force is strong with Rey. We saw that in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That’s why she had to go see Luke Skywalker at the end.

Oops. Hope that was not a spoiler for you… If so, hurry up and catch-up. We have a whole ‘nother Star Wars coming in December! Watch the trailer for “The Last Jedi” (the last chapter for the Jedi??)

This teaser has gotta have viewers thinking, “This is gonna be crazy. Good and crazy!” Watch and figure out your own feelings about it though (above).

Watch The Teaser For Marvel’s “Runaways” (Trailer)

Hmmm… could be verrrry interesting! So Hulu is getting into the Marvel game. Saw this “Runaways” start playing while I was YouTube surfing, and I immediately tried to figure out whether this fits in the Mutant Universe (like what Fox and FX are trying with “The Gifted” and “Legion” and the “X-Men” movies) or the MCU (Marvel Comics Universe, with all “The Defenders” on Netflix and big screen smashes like “Avengers”). Check out the Teaser.

(Oh… and the Mutant vs. MCU thing… looks like this is something else altogether! Maybe some “Doctor Strange” mixed in with a hybrid of both.)

Action/Fantasy/Thriller: Natalie Portman Stars In “Annihilation” (Teaser Trailer)

The teaser doesn’t give much away about the story, but it might give you a case of the heebies and the jeebies (that ‘music’ though)! A little digging… so Natalie Portman’s character’s husband got into a spot of trouble in a spot that’s like a dark Narnia meets the Savage Land meets the Bermuda Triangle. Guess the rest of the story will come to us on or before 1st quarter 2018.

Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, “Annihilation” stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac. It was written and directed by Alex Garland (“Ex Machina,” “28 Days Later”).

Watch The Full Comic-Con “Justice League” Sneak Peek Teaser (Trailer)

Oh snap! I just caught something around 1:30… before dude said “no Kryptonians”… he said “no LANTERNS!” Think they might try to make up for that Green Lantern goof-up a few flops back? Maybe.

Or maybe let The CW add it to their #DareToDefy line-up. The John Stewart kick-azz Marine Green Lantern (who dated Vixen, another #DareToDefy character on DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow already, on the Justice League Unlimited cartoon series back in the day). And maybe that story ties into the new Black Lightning series arc. Just an awesome idea.

Okay, so above is the 4+ minute trailer folks saw at SDCC for the upcoming “Justice League” movie. Here’s to hoping that the best part of this thing ain’t the trailers… again.

Check Out The San Diego Comic Con 2017 Teaser For “Death Note” (Trailer)

Hmmm… Death is no angel in this movie, eh? Granting wishes though; the most macabre wishes… like who you wish was dead… and HOW! Just write it down and bam! Damn. They’re dead. Most gruesomely.
