Trailers – The first trailer for the movie “Captain Marvel” has been released. The movie is due in theaters March of 2019. The synopsis (per IMDB):
Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
The short (1:56) trailer does not reveal a lot, though this movie looks like it has potential. I look forward to seeing it next year.
Trailers – I have seen an earlier trailer for the movie “Prospect”, but this is a much longer version. The movie is due in US theaters in November of 2018. The synopsis:
A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They’ve secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon’s toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest’s other ruthless inhabitants but with her own father’s greed-addled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.
This is a dark science fiction tale that has the feel of a western. It is based on a short film by the same name. It looks promising and has already scored a 7/10 on IMDB.
Trailers – WWII – The new WWII era movie “Air Strike” (AKA “Unbreakable Spirit”) will be in theaters this October in the US. The synopsis per IMDB:
During World War II, five different Chinese people fight their way through Japanese Air Force attacks to protect an important military machine in Chongqing, 1940.
It is hard to tell much about this film from the trailer. Certainly, it implies a lot of action in the film. This is a Chinese film with both English and Chinese dialog, though it looks like the Chinese voices are dubbed into English for the version released in the US.
If you are a student of the World War II era in history, you may find my pages “World War II Sources” (a collection of museums, websites, Facebook pages and Twitter feeds with information on the World War II era in history) and “World War II Timeline” of interest.
Trailers – WWII – The new movie from J. J. Abrams and Bad Robot, “Overlord” is due out in November of 2018. This is a World War II movie, but with a zombie-like twist. A small group of American paratroopers find themselves behind German lines on D-Day. They come across a small French village where the Germans are experimenting to develop immortal soldiers. The synopsis on IMDB is:
The story of two American soldiers behind enemy lines on D Day.
I’m not too sure about this film. I am not a big zombie fan. I will have to see how far into the horror genre this film goes.

Trailers – This trailer for the upcoming movie “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” was posted to YouTube today. As posted on the YouTube page for this movie the synopsis is:
At the end of the first film, the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.
In an effort to thwart Grindelwald’s plans, Albus Dumbledore (Jude Law) enlists his former student Newt Scamander, who agrees to help, unaware of the dangers that lie ahead. Lines are drawn as love and loyalty are tested, even among the truest friends and family, in an increasingly divided wizarding world.
I have to say that this episode in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ series looks much more interesting than the first installment. There appears to be more of a story here than in the first episode. I look forward to seeing it when it comes out in mid-November of this year.
Trailers – I just saw this trailer today and it looks like the movie may be good. Hard to tell what the actual movie will be like from this short trailer though. The synopsis (from IMDB):
A small group of town residents have to band together after a devastating ground invasion. As they struggle to survive, they realize they must stay one step ahead of their attackers, and work together for a chance to strike back.
The movie is being released this July. I look forward to seeing it sometime.
Trailers – The second season of Westworld begins next week. I enjoyed season 1 and look forward to this season as well.
Trailers – The trailer for the Han Solo stand-alone movie due in theaters this May is out. This looks like it will be another great story. The synopsis per IMDB:
During an adventure into a dark criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his future copilot Chewbacca and encounters Lando Calrissian years before joining the Rebellion.
I’m looking forward to this next installment to the Star Wars universe.
Trailers – This is the trailer for the 10 episode series “Impulse” that will premier on Youtube Red this summer. The synopsis per IMDB:
A young woman discovers she has the extraordinary power of teleportation.
This series is a spin-off of the movie Jumper. It looks like it might be a good series. It is a little dark and is obviously aimed at the teen market.
Trailers – The trailer for the second Deadpool film has been released. The synopsis per IMDB:
Deadpool forms a new team, the X-Force to protect a kid from Cable who has come from a possible future timeline to kill the boy.
Probably another hit in the Marvel Universe, but not a movie I am excited over. I am not a fan of movies that have this kind of humor. Obviously, I am in the minority as the first film did well.
