Trailers – The trailer for the next movie set in the Marvel Universe, “Avengers: Infinity War” has been released. It combines most of the characters that have recently been introduced to the Marvel Universe. The synopsis per IMDB:
The Avengers and their 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.
The movie will open in late April of 2018 and looks to be a very enjoyable story.
Trailers – The trailer for “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” was just released and the next installment in this series set in the Harry Potter Universe looks interesting. This film follows the further adventures of Newt Scamander.

Trailers – The movie “Perfect” premiered at SXSW a couple of days ago. The synopsis:
A boy in a cold and stark modern house, in a vaguely science fictional world, is seduced by advertisements of perfection to install implantable characteristics directly into his body. The implants heal his dark, twisted visions, but come with a corporeal cost. He persists on applying them, hoping to reach perfection, but ultimately he discovers that purity of mind is not exactly as he’s imagined.
This looks like it might be an interesting movie, but it certainly looks dark. The movie has only earned a 6.6/10 on IMDB, so I am not sure how good it really is.

I have enjoyed the series, though I have not had the opportunity to read the novels. The world portrayed in the series is advanced, yet a little dark. I do look forward to seeing what this season brings to the series. The new season of 13 episodes will appear on the SyFy channel in April of this year.

I read the novel a long time ago when I was in High School and enjoyed it. I look forward to seeing what HBO has done with the story.

Trailers – WWII – The movie “Hurricane” expected in theaters sometime in 2019, tells the story of 303 Squadron founded in august of 1940 and which defended the UK against the Germans in the early days of World War II. The 303 was made up of Polish pilots who had fled their homeland after the German invasion in 1939. The synopsis from IMDB:
Hurricane (Squadron 303) is the story of a group of brave Poles who fought in the skies over England in WW2, not just to keep Great Britain free from the Nazis, but also to keep alive the very idea of their own country, which had existed in its modern form for barely twenty years before it was crushed between the opposing jaws of Germany and Russia. Equipped with the almost-obsolete Hurricane and (with some initial reluctance) given RAF blue uniforms, while they fought, Poland lived.
These pilots had to learn to fly more modern aircraft, the Hawker Hurricane from which the movie received its name. The hurricane was an exceptional aircraft credited with more than 60% of the arial combat victories during the Battle for Britain. The Polish pilots also had to survive against the German Luftwaffe and overcome prejudices within the British air corp. These “bloody Poles’ became the best scoring RAF squadron during the Battle for Britain with the highest ration of enemy aircraft destroyed against their own losses. They flew more than 1000 combat sorties in 1940 and more than 2000 in 1941. They were credited with destroying 126 German aircraft during the Battle of Britain.
I am looking forward to seeing this movie when ever it make it into the theaters.
Trailers – I have enjoyed the 23 episodes from the first two seasons of “The Expanse” and look forward to this one.
