I can’t keep thinking about this trailer, it looks amazing.
Yes, this morning the trailer for the 3rd Wolverine movie trailer titled Logan premiered and I have to admit it almost made me teary-eyed.
The movie is set some what in the distant future where most of the mutants and X-men are most likely dead and Logan is one of few surviving along with Professor Xavier and they are on a quest to protect a young girl who maybe X-23 (the female wolverine) from bad guys.
This trailer nails the exact tone I wanted it to be. The basis for this movie is Mark Millers comic Old Man Logan arc, and it nails it completely. You see Logan with scars meaning that he is losing his powers, and aging. It also reminded me a lot of the video game The Last of Us, seeing Logan’s relationship with the young girl.
I am very excited about this movie and I cannot wait until March so I could see it.

It’s Morphin Time!
This morning the teaser trailer to the new Power Rangers reboot movie and it actually looks pretty good. It also feels very different than the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV show of the early 90s which you have to admit that was cheesy as hell.
As you can tell from the trailer, it is very different from the original series, the characters aren’t the goody-goods, they are troubled and bullied, and it reminds me a lot of Breakfast Club in that sense. While some of the banter has a little bit of the Power Rangers cheese, it does seem to some of the characteristics of original rangers and a little more.
While some complain about the suits, but I actually like how they look. It seems to have a more alien feel to them and it doesn’t look like the rubber spandex that the series has.
In the end this teaser trailer, got me excited amount the movie and it didn’t show to much like some other trailers do. I grew up on Power Rangers and I would love to see it on the big screen again.
This week was Comic-Con, which meant new trailers to upcoming movies, I was going to do one trailer at a time, but I decided to do one part which will be movies and tomorrow I will talk about the TV shows.
The first trailer I want to talk about is Doctor Strange.
Like Guardians of The Galaxy before this, I don’t have much knowledge about the character outside from a few crossovers with other comics. But judging by the trailer, this looks visually spectacular. Benedict Cumberbatch looks great as Doctor Strange and I am excited to see it.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
I already talked about the first trailer. Click here. But I am very excited for this movie, mainly because I want to see an expanded universe of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
While the reception of Batman v Superman was mixed at best, one of the main highlights was Gal Godot as Wonder Women. This trailer got me the most excited. It gave us color in the DCEU and the action scenes looks great. It also made me wonder what Thor: The Dark World would have looked liked if Patty Jenkins stayed on as director. But this movie also has a lot to live up to because this is first female-led comic book movie in years, and most of the female-led have been really bad. But this trailer gives me hope for female-led comic book movies.
This is the DCEU answer to Marvels Avengers. While the reception for Batman v Superman was mixed, it seems like the DCEU is answering the criticisms, like adding more color and some lightness without being very grim dark like the previous movies. I also liked scene that introduced Barry Allen as the Flash. While I am a fan of Grant Gustin’s Flash for the CW series, I just have to accept that the universes are not connected. Hopefully both Wonder Women and Justice League will fix some of the problems the DCEU and could compete with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Those are my thoughts on the trailer. Do you have any favorite trailers from Comic-Con? Let me know in the comments below.
We are now back to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter with a spin off series based on the textbook Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
It stars Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, the author of Fantastic Beasts; in which he meets a secret community of wizards and witches in New York City. What I like about this trailer is that it still nails the tone of the Harry Potter movies, and how the movie isn’t really based on the book, but about the making of the book.
What also makes me excited about the trailer is the fact that we are seeing more of an expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and according to JK Rowling it is a spin off. The only reference to the Harry Potter is the name drop of Albus Dumbledore and Hogwarts.
I am very excited about this movie and hope we could see more of the Wizarding World universe.
This morning as I was editing the Shadowhunters review I got word that the Rogue One trailer was released, so I took a break, and then I watched it and it was incredible.
Now this is one of the anthology Star Wars films that still takes place within the Star Wars universe but not a continuation of any of the few films which are episodes 7,8 and 9. This is actually a prequel to a New Hope which is how a group of rebels got the Death Star plans and giving them to Princess Leia. Basically the first paragraph of the original title crawl.
Felicity Jones plays rebel who is basically leading the mission along with Diego Luna, Donnie Yen and Forrest Whitacker. I like that this movie feels like a war movie and showing battle scenes that a more grounded. The trailer also showed familiar images such as the original storm trooper outfits, the first Death Star and the Star Destroyer which that this a very much a prequel to a New Hope.
I am definitely excited about this trailer after seeing The Force Awakens I am excited about the prospects of new Star Wars movies every year.
