Trailers – It has been a long time since Star Trek themed show has been on TV. It looks like the wait will be over soon as StarTrek:Discovery looks like it will be airing this fall. Unfortunately it will be on a paid channel.
This series is set about 10 years before the original Star Trek series I grew up with. From the trailer it looks to be well done and interesting. We will see when it finally airs.
Trailers – This movie looks to be quite a special effects production. The official synopsis is:
In War for the Planet of the Apes, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.
It does look like it will be an interesting movie. It appears in theaters July 14.
Trailers – I have watched most of these movies, though I am not a devoted fan. This one looks like it may have a little more story to it than some of the previous episodes in the franchise.
I do look forward to seeing this film which opens June 21.
Trailers – Iron Sky is a European Science Fiction production first released in 2012. It tells the story of Nazis who have escaped Earth and set up a colony on the dark side of the Moon back in 1945.
“Iron Sky: The Coming Race” is the sequel to that movie, taking place 20 years later. This film will appear in 2018. The synopsis:
Twenty years after the events of Iron Sky, the former Nazi Moonbase has become the last refuge of mankind. Earth was devastated by a nuclear war but buried deep under the wasteland lies a power that could save the last of humanity – or destroy it once and for all. The truth behind the creation of mankind will be revealed when an old enemy leads our heroes on an adventure into the Hollow Earth. To save humanity they must fight the Vril, an ancient shapeshifting reptilian race, and their army of dinosaurs.
Well, I can’t say I am looking forward to this film. It reminds me of those low budget Science Fiction films of the 50s and 60s. The ratings for the original film are only 5.9 in IMDB and 36% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not sure why they did sequels. Looking at IMDB, there appears to be a third film in the series Iron “Sky: The Ark” scheduled to 2018 release as well. I don’t think I will be spending any money to see these.
Trailer – This shows a little more of what will finally get to see when Wonder Woman opens on June 2. I have to say that this looks like one of the best films for this summer. The official synopsis is:
Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, Princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers … and her true destiny.
Wonder Woman first made her appearance in DC Comics in 1942 and has continued since that time. She is a trained Amazon warrior and has supernatural power inherited from the Greek Gods.
Trailers – This sequel to the original 1982 film Blade Runner (which was adapted from the 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by Science Fiction author Philip K. Dick) looks pretty interesting. It is set 30 years after the original movie. Harrison Ford appears in this movie as the much older version of Rick Deckard from the first movie.
The synopsis (from IMDB) for the movie is:
Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.
We will see how the movie plays out when it opens this October
Trailers – This Science Fiction film is due out May 19 as VOD and in selected theaters June 16. I had not heard anything about it until this trailer, but at less than a minute long, it doesn’t really tell us much.
The only thing I can find about it is (on IMDB):
A pilot battles to save his family and the planet after an experiment for unlimited energy goes wrong.
Given how it is being distributed, I don’t have very high expectations for this film. But then you never know until you sit down and watch it.
Trailers – The first trailer for the big screen adaptation of Stephen King‘s eight volume Dark Tower novel series is out. This story is the typical King blend of Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy.
The premise (according to Wikipedia) is:
Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor) is an 11-year-old adventure seeker who discovers clues about another dimension called Mid-World. Upon following the mystery, he is spirited away to Mid-World where he encounters a Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), who is on a quest to reach the “Dark Tower” that resides in End-World and reach the nexus point between time and space that he hopes will save all existence from extinction. But with various monsters and a vicious sorcerer named Walter Padick (Matthew McConaughey) hot on their trail, the unlikely duo find that their quest may be difficult to complete.
I have not read much of Steven King as I am not a Horror fan, but this does look interesting. I have read and enjoyed his “The Green Mile” and “The Stand“.
Trailers – This isn’t a movie I had heard of before coming across the trailer. The synopsis is:
The Recall centers on a group of friends vacationing at a remote cabin lake house when aliens attack Earth. Charlie (Jedidah Goodacre) and his friends Brendan (R.J. Mitte), Annie (Laura Bilgeri), Rob (Niko Pepaj), and Kara (Hannah Rose May) are forced to rely on an eccentric and mysterious hunter (Wesley Snipes) with special knowledge of the attack, explaining this day has been prophesied for years.
While definitely Science Fiction, this movie seems to also have a Horror slant to it from the trailer. Not sure about this one. We will see when it opens June 16 at select theaters and via VOD.
Trailers – I enjoyed the first of these movies “Kingman: The Secret Service” and I’m glad to see that there will soon be a sequel on the big screen. I have always liked these “James Bond” type thrillers since I was a kid in Junior High and read the first Ian Fleming novels.
This looks to be another great tale of spies, gadgets and special affects. The official synopsis of the movie is:
“Kingsman: The Secret Service” introduced the world to Kingsman — an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the U.S. called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…
Unfortunately we won’t get to see it in the theaters until September 22. It looks like it may well be worth the wait for this fun adventure.
