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!

‘Deadpool 2’ (And Cable) Coming To A Theater Near You In May 2018 (Trailer)

“Deadpool” was an epic cinematic bonus chapter of the Marvel Entertainment movie anthology. Take that part seriously, but not much else… even the serious characters. Like Cable: serious dude. But in this wacky Wade Wilson world, best believe you will be getting in quite a few chuckles.

After surviving a near-fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
– 20th Century Fox

See? Can’t even be serious in the trailer write-up.

(Sidebar: How did Josh Brolin land the role of Thanos AND this Cable role?? Those are some huge Marvel characters; with a huge chasm between them in the Universe.)

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.

Enlisting the help of two young soldiers, Catherine must use all of her wit and nous as she and her new allies embark on an adventure into the unknown to rescue her father, and save the Earth from an unimaginable darkness.

Christopher Meloni Stars In SyFy’s Original “Happy!” Coming To Starting December 6th (Trailer)

Well, would you look at this… Elliot Christopher Meloni Stabler from “Law & Order: SVU” has got himself another gig. Looks like a cross between “Roger Rabit” and “Sin City” – like those two flicks had a fling and abandoned the baby. And it grew up with no home training, unhinged and macabre af! Probably helps the aura of this movie; the fact that Meloni also starred in the very graphic “Sin City” sequel.

But enough of the past. This trailer is for “Happy!” (based on New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name). The series follows Nick Sax (played by Meloni) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hitman – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt).

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.
