Trailer for “Black Panther”

Trailers – Disney and Marvel have released the trailer for their latest movie in the Marvel Universe, “Black Panther”. It will be a while though before we can see it as it is not scheduled to open until February 16, 2018. What I find in the way of a synopsis is (from IMDB):

T’Challa, the new ruler of the advanced kingdom of Wakanda, must defend his land from being torn apart by enemies from outside and inside the country.

We got a glimpse of the Black Panther in “Captain America: Civil War”. The character comes from the fictional African nation of Wakanda which has progressed on a separate technological path from the rest of the world.

Trailer for “It Came from the Desert”

Trailers – This movie reminds me of those I used to watch when I was a kid in the early days of Science Fiction movies. I guess that it should make me feel that ways since it was inspired by the films of the 50s.

This is actually a indie movie that was inspired by a video game that was released in 1989 for the Amiga, PC, Sega Genesis and TurboGrafx-16. It is billed as a ‘Horror Comedy’. I’m not sure if it will have theater release or just DVD, though it is schedule for release sometime in 2017.

Would I spend much to purchase it? Probably not.

Trailer for “Game of Thrones Season 7”

Trailers – Game of Thrones will be coming back to HBO on July 16. I am really looking forward to seeing it, yet it just brings me that much closer to the end. Seven episodes for this season and probably only six for season 8. That does not seem like enough time to wrap up this saga. Nor do I want it to end so soon.

Not much is really revealed in this trailer other than there will be battle scenes. It is impressive how this Fantasy story has become such a huge hit. Perhaps when the TV series is finally over, George R. R. Martin will finally finish the book series. I have read and thoroughly enjoyed the first five novels in the series. He has a sixth underway and a planned seventh.

He has proven to be such an incredibly slow writer that I have no plans to read any further books in the series until he has finished it. Book five was published in 2011 and there are no publication dates yet for the next two volumes.

Trailer for “Star Trek: Discovery”

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.

Final Trailer for “War for the Planet of the Apes”

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.

Trailer for “Iron Sky: The Coming Race”

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.

Final Trailer for “Wonder Woman”

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.

Trailer for “Blade Runner: 2049”

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
