Have you guys seen? A new poster and teaser trailers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was just released today. Even though the film won’t be released until next year, fans have been chomping at the book for any and all information they can get on the upcoming sequel. I really like the overall feel of the poster which I am assuming it supposed to look like an album cover. Everyone looks super badass and I am excited to see where the next movie goes. I am actually trying not to hear too much about it before it come… Read more »

Happy Monday, guys. I just spent the weekend in San Diego for Comic-Con. So many books, movies and shows to talk about soon but, in the meantime, I am posting this trailer for A Monster Calls that I meant to post last week. I haven’t read the book yet but I know I have a copy in my library somewhere. I really like the look of the trailer though and who doesn’t love Liam Neeson? I have a feeling there might be some tears when in the audience when I go see this. What do you guys think? Does this… Read more »
The official trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was just released. The trailer definitely has that Tim Burton flavor of the strange and wonderful. While the beginning scene with the entrance to Miss Peregrine’s world is quite different than what I recall from the book, it definitely makes an impression. Who else will be seeing this when it hits theaters this September?
The first trailer for AMC’s Preacher premiered last week. The show is based on a popular comic book series from the 90’s. I was a really big fan of the series as a teen and was excited to hear that someone was actually going to try to adapt it for television. It’s really hard to describe this series but it’s about a Texas preacher, Jesse Custer, who becomes joined with Genesis, a being who is the result between a demon and an angel. Through Genesis, Custer gains powers that basically allow him to make people do whatever he wants. He goes on a journey to find God, who has left Heaven, to hold him accountable for his actions. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. It all sounds a bit crazy, and it is, but in an awesome way.
The BBC just dropped a new teaser for Sherlock: The Abominable Bride special that will air on January 1, 2016. Watson and Sherlock meet for the first time in this trailer and it’s oh so good. As much as I love Sherlock, I love Watson more. I’ve always loved the long suffering partner types and Martin Freeman is fantastic as the voice of reason to Sherlock’s manic genius. I really can’t wait for this one. Who is your favorite – Sherlock or Watson?
Ahhh! The new trailer for Marvel’s Jessica Jones just dropped and man, it looks good. Netflix has been killing it lately and if the trailer is any indication, they are going to continue that streak with Jessica Jones. If you didn’t know, the show is based off the comic book Alias, written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by Michael Gaydos (with covers by one of my all-time favorite artist David Mack. It’s the story of a former costumed superhero turned private investigator. As you can see from the trailer, there are things in Jessica’s past that don’t want to stay… Read more »
The trailer for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies just dropped and I, for one, and quite excited about it. I read the book by Seth Grahame-Smith ages ago (and even have a signed copy) and I’ve been looking forward to this for a while. It looks very tongue in cheek and fun and combines two things I love – Jane Austen and zombies. I also love the little nod to the BBC adaptation of P&P that they put in. I think this is going to be a fun movie to see with my other Austen loving friends.
Hi, guys! Wow this post is abysmally late. April is what my friends like to call the start of “book season,” which means that there are a plethora or fantastic book events lined up back to back. This year was especially crazy and I pretty much had a book type event every weekend. I meant to put up all of my event recaps and posts much earlier but it’s been weeks and I have only just now found the time to do it. I also was struck down with a bout of food poisoning last week and was pretty useless… Read more »
I am a huge fan of Jurassic Park and, even though the sequels haven’t been as good, I get really excited whenever there is a new installment. Jurassic World is set to hit theaters this June and a new trailer just dropped. This one is set quite a bit after the last installment and shows the park as a successful theme park. Of course things go awry when the powers that be try to up the ante with some genetic dino testing. Chris Pratt looks great in this and the dinosaurs look fantastic. I also like that B.D. Wong makes… Read more »
It’s going to sound like I’m telling you spoilers, but almost everything I mention here is already on the jacket cover or takes place in the first few chapters of the book. Astronaut Mark Watney ends up stranded on Mars with just his wits and a limited supply of resources with which to survive. Not only must he figure out how to make do until someone comes to take him back to Earth (or he dies of misadventure), he’s got to figure out how not to go crazy. Luckily, he’s got a diverse set of technical skills, a sarcastic sense of humor, and a few decade’s (uh, the 70’s and 80’s) worth of classic TV and music to keep him company.
