Trailers – This trailer for the science fiction young adult movie “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” looks good (IMDB has it rated at 8.3/10). The movie is based upon the novel “The Death Cure” by James Dashner. The synopsis (according to IMDB):
Young hero Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure for a deadly disease known as the “Flare”.
I haven’t seen the first movies in this series. Perhaps I need to view those before I see this one. Not much time as it opens later this month.
Trailers – This trailer for the young adult science fiction film “Ready Player One” looks very interesting. The fact that it is directed by Steven Spielberg also makes me think it will be a good movie. The synopsis (from IMDB):
When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune. Wade Watts finds the first clue and starts a race for the Egg.
The movie opens late this coming March. I think that this will be one I want to see in the theater.
Trailers – This trailer gives a quick look at the new “Altered Carbon” series coming to Netflix in early February. It is based on the novel of the same name written by Richard Morgan (https://www.richardkmorgan.com). The synopsis (from IMDB):
ALTERED CARBON is set in a future where consciousness is digitized and stored in cortical stacks implanted in the spine, allowing humans to survive physical death by having their memories and consciousness “re-sleeved” into new bodies. The story follows specially trained “Envoy” soldier Takeshi Kovacs, who is downloaded from an off-world prison and into the body of a disgraced cop at the behest of Laurens Bancroft, a highly influential aristocrat. Bancroft was killed, and the last automatic backup of his stack was made hours before his death, leaving him with no memory of who killed him and why. While police ruled it a suicide, Bancroft is convinced he was murdered and wants Kovacs to find out the truth.
It looks to have some real possibilities.
Trailers – This trailer for “A Wrinkle in Time” based upon the book of the same name by Madeleine L’Engle (available on iBooks). The synopsis (from IMDB):
After the disappearance of her scientist father, three peculiar beings send Meg, her brother, and her friend to space in order to find him.
This looks like a good Young Adult Science Fiction story. I look forward to it opening in March 2018.
Trailers – The trailer for the film “A Quiet Place” is very different. The family living in the remote farm must be quiet at all costs, thus the trailer is without dialog. Should the family make sound by accident, they will be hunted. The synopsis from IMDB:
A family lives an isolated existence in utter silence, for fear of an unknown threat that follows and attacks at any sound.
It looks interesting as a ‘horror’ movie. We’ll see how good it is when it opens in April of 2018.
Trailers – The movie “Rampage” is adapted from the 1980s video games of the same name. The synopsis:
Dwayne Johnson plays the part of primatologist Davis Okoye who has raised a silverback gorilla, George, since birth. A genetic experiment goes wrong causing the gorilla, and other animals, to grow to huge sizes. Johnson wants to save his long time friend George, but he has to avoid the other rampaging animals.
I’m not sure about this movie. It reminds me of those SciFi flicks from the 60s. Guess we will have to see what it really looks like when it opens in April 2018.
Trailers – I had not heard of Alita before I saw this trailer. It looks like it may have possibilities. The fact that James Cameron is one of the writers gives the movie some credits. The synopsis (from IMDB):
An action-packed story of one young woman’s journey to discover the truth of who she is and her fight to change the world.
This will come out in July of 2018.
Trailers – The next installment of the Avengers comes to theaters in May 2018. This trailer is short (2:24) but this looks to be another good addition to the Marvel franchise. The synopsis (per IMDB):
The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.
Something to look forward to in 2018.
Trailers – Netflix will air a new 10-episode series beginning in December called “Dark”. The dialog is in German with English subtitles. The synopsis:
The disappearance of two kids in the German small town of Winden opens abysses that turn the concept of time on its head. The question is not who has kidnapped the children… but when.
Though I don’t have Netflix, this does look interesting. The only downside is the subtitles. I am not a fan of subtitles.
Trailers – The science fiction movie “Singularity” opens later this month. Though this clip looks pretty good, it was only given a 5.5/10 rating on IMDB. The synopsis (from IMDB):
In 2020, Elias van Dorne (John Cusack), CEO of VA Industries, the world’s largest robotics company, introduces his most powerful invention–Kronos, a super computer designed to end all wars. When Kronos goes online, it quickly determines that mankind, itself, is the biggest threat to world peace and launches a worldwide robot attack to rid the world of the “infection” of man. Ninety-seven years later, a small band of humans remain alive but on the run from the robot army. A teenage boy, Andrew (Julian Schaffner) and a teenage girl, Calia (Jeannine Wacker), form an unlikely alliance to reach a new world, where it is rumored mankind exists without fear of robot persecution. But does this world actually exist? And will they live long enough to find out?
