Transformers: Nothing like Pink Floyd. Shush.

Posted in News, Previews, Trailers with tags , , , , on December 9, 2010 by The DvS

Dark Of The Moon? Really? That’s the best you could come up with? Sounds tragic on name alone.

Nevertheless, Michael Bay is back with his take on big robots who seem really crap at hiding. The third instalment of Transformers is on the way, and Blammo don’t half love a bit of robot on robot action. Well, personal opinon differs amongst us all, but even though Megan Fox has departed (SHAME, no really I’m serious, I love her. LOVE. A LA STALK), we still have those lovely little clunk click noises to look forward to!

We needn’t analyse anything here. There’s a situation involving the first men on the moon (not HG Wells folks. Sorry, run along…) and it’s clearly been covered up that they run into a Decepticon ship on the moon and potentially awake something that’s probably not going to do very well on the toy stakes unless it’s really cool in the movie. Don’t you hate that? Your big bad in your film is £3.97 in Toys R Us within four weeks of release? BOOOOO.

Tease us then. I enjoyed them clunks and clicks.

SPECULATE! SPECULATE!

Not much to go on, it’s just a small video from Neill Blomkamp (District 9) that turned up on the iPod edition of Wired. But when said small video shows something hideous and dead in a puddle, call me intrigued! I hope this to be a new movie, otherwise I’m questioning my local butcher’s sources.

A sense of Dredd

Posted in News, Previews with tags , , , , , on November 22, 2010 by The DvS

I do like this picture of some guy’s Halloween costume. The dedication to make this Judge Dredd outfit look authentic must have been inhuman. Alright, it’s a little bit of a leather jacket, with a few painted shoulder pads and a big papier mache badge attached. Helmet, albeit rather mighty on the cranium, looks like it’d protect you from a hefty motorcycle bump. And that gun…oh that gun is a fine example of what can happen when you put down your game controller, leave Twitter alone and go play with some toilet rolls, paint and glue. Good effort, whoever did this!

Oh. It’s Karl Urban under there? Really? I’d never have guessed. What? There is a new film coming out to make us eradicate the memories of Sly Stallone mumbling URNOTHALAWIEMTHELAW at anyone who’d listen? ‘Scuse me? It will be written by Alex Garland (28 Days Later)? Oh my. Pardon? Sorry, that’s my mess, I’ll clean it up now. DREDD is the name and will be directed by Pete Travis! Pete formerly directed a few episodes of The Bill, which automatically qualifies him to handle lawmen of the future. And when I say handle, I didn’t mean it in a literal sense. You people.

And to continue with yesterday’s post: I KNEW (YOU’D SAY THAT), RIGHT?

I’ll get my coat.

I KNOW, RIGHT? No, Green Lantern, I don’t.

Hello there, dear reader. It’s been a while since we last eyeballed each other, and I think it might have been because of you that I’ve taken this long to come back. But it seems during my absence, the muchly anticipated trailer for DC Comics’ Green Lantern hit the interwebs. Now, as resident comic book afficionado and huge fan of all things Lantern (yes, including paper), I would have liked to have joined in with those of you who pumped your fists in the air, shouted orgasmic cheers and jumped for joy as Hal Jordan‘s world sprung to life before your very eyes. Only after the initial viewing of the trailer, the only thing I had an urge to do was to cock my leg, fart, and sigh a little. Take a look if you haven’t managed to see it yet.

Skyline?! Are you…

DAY OF INDEPENDENCE?!??!?!!

No. No, you look much better than petrol station blockbusters. But, like most things, you’re teasing my loins with your whole “look, Hawking said, DONT TRY AND TALK WITH ALIENS and whaddya go and do…” Consider me interested, but if you mention at least one Bill Pullman-esque morale speech for humanity, then we’re gonna have to play rough. I especially like the end of this trailer. Little bit “ooooh” I thought. Check it!

I have very Thor bits

Some shouting chaps, a hammer and Natalie Portman. Just what you asked for, right? Five minutes of Comic Con Thor trailer for you to chew toast to. Good morning.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Tron: Legacy (again)

Posted in News, Previews, Trailers with tags , , , , , on July 23, 2010 by The DvS

Comic-Con always keeps on giving when it’s running. Well it doesn’t give to me. Have you even seen those Galactus hats?! Give me one now! NOW! And now, to the point. First megabuzz of the con was the Tron: Legacy panel and the unveiling of the latest trailer to make you all sick to your stomachs of how smart it looks and how it’s not available to you until December. According to reports of the panel, and has now made me feel old, is that not a lot of people even knew that Tron existed and that this was a new movie entirely. These same reports have eyewitness accounts of these people hogtied to lightcycles and driven down Hall H, until they were aware that there’s more to Jeff Bridges other than The Dude and Starman. There was the Fabulous Baker Boys too. You crazy!

Trailer then. The trailer that didn’t really make anyone cheer a great deal. Amazement, or ignorance?
