Trailers – The SyFy Channel has ordered a pilot for a new series “The Machine”. This will be a TV series based on the 2013 movie of the same name, the trailer for which is shown above.
The concept will be that the world is being transformed by the emergence of Artificial Intelligence. While we are not there yet, our society is in the process of being massively changed by the growing introduction of robots, AI and Automation. The series will show the struggle between the emergent AI and humanity.
This might be a good series if it makes it through to production.
Trailers – This looks to be a different, and darker view of the King Arthur legend. It reminds me a lot (from this short 2:40 clip) of the “The Return of the King”. It looks to weave magic and medieval combat into the battle scenes. This might be an interesting new view on King Arthur and Excalibur. We will get to find out soon as this fantasy movie opens May 12.
Trailers – The newest vision of the Mummy will appear on the big screen June 9. This time Tom Cruise has the lead male role in the battle with supernatural forces.
This short (2:35) trailer is full of action. The Mummy once again is unearthed in the Middle East, then moves to terrorize modern day London. This could be an interesting movie.
Trailers – By now we have all see “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” at least once. I think I’ve seen it four times now.
This isn’t a trailer as much as it is a look behind the filming of the movie. While this short (2:56) video doesn’t really reveal much, it is a different look with a couple of brief scenes that I think got left on the cutting room floor.
In any case, if you like Star Wars you will want to see it.
Trailer – A trailer is out for the next season of “Game of Thrones” and it is titled “Long Walk”. Season 7 begins on July 16. Glimpses of the three main characters, Cersei Lannister, Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, are shown walking through their domains in the trailer.
Not much is really revealed in this short (1:32) video. My wife and I avidly await this coming season. It is hard to believe that just over a dozen episodes remain in the series. There are so many plot threads that have yet to be wrapped up and explained.
Trailers – The third movie in the latest series of ‘Planet of the Apes’ movies will premier July 14. I have not followed these recent additions to the ‘Planet of the Apes’ movies myself. From what I see in the trailer this one might be good.
We will all know in three months.
Trailers – The anticipation begins to build.
The first teaser for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” was released today. It doesn’t reveal too much, it just wets the appetite for more Star Wars. This episode of Star Wars (#VII) premiers on December 15.
May the Force be with us all until then!
Trailers – This Science Fiction movie premiers April 21. This movie is shot in sound-footage-style (shaky camera, which I dislike and often makes me nauseous). The premise behind the movie is:
The three students decide to investigate the UFO sightings over Phoenix, Arizona and Sonora, Mexico in March of 1997. They vanish without a trace. Now, twenty years later, ‘lost’ video footage of their last hours has been found.
This could be interesting. It is hard to tell from the trailer. It could also be one of those movies where I would like to take some very large spikes and nail the photographer’s feet in place and give him a steady-cam.
A new trailer is out showing more of what we will see when the new Spider-man movie premiers July 7. It looks good, but viewing the full length movie will make all the difference. This one of course is tightly integrated into the Marvel Universe of the Avengers.
Disney – Teasers – The movie “Avatar” was a big hit in 2009. Now you can visit the world of Pandora, or at least a 12 acre recreation of it in Disney World. The expansion will open this May in the Animal Kingdom park. When I was there in January of 2017 we could see that the expansion was nearly done and where the entrance will be.
Disney says “Pandora – The World of Avatar will transport guests to a visually stunning world complete with floating mountains and bioluminescent plants. Here, guests will be able to experience two excursions that will truly push adventure to the next level. First, the family-friendly Na’vi River Journey will send guests down a sacred river hidden within a bioluminescent rainforest. Their journey will end in an unforgettable encounter with a Na’vi Shaman, a figure who has a deep connection to the life force of Pandora. And second, the Avatar Flight of Passage excursion will offer the jaw-dropping experience of riding on a Banshee over the world of Pandora.”
There is more to be seen in an interview with James Cameron as he gives a preview tour.
The video above gives a little background to the mew Pandora world, though it talks mostly about Animal Kingdom in general. The new land is oriented heavily towards nature and ecology.
