Peek into the Cyberpunk Noir World of ‘Altered Carbon’


2017 has been a good year for Netflix original series, perhaps almost TOO good. Just in the last few months, we’ve been treated to Stranger Things 2, Mindhunter, The Punisher, Godless, Dark, and more. In fact, it’s been almost impossible to keep up, which is a great problem to have.

2018 looks to be just as dazzling. Altered Carbon, based on the cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan, is an “intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future.”

TIFF 2017: The Shape of Water PLUS Red Band Trailer

The Shape of Water is, ah, shaping up to be the film of the year. Guillermo del Toro’s latest brilliant film just won the top prize, the Golden Lion, at the Venice Film Festival, and it’s a good bet to win at least The People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival this year. It’s been such a hot ticket, it took me two tries to see it. And that’s at press and industry only screenings! It doesn’t come out until Friday, December 8th in North America, but lucky for all y’awl, the Red Band trailer just dropped. That and a mini-review after the jump!

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Beats Up The Marvel Universe OGN Trailer

asq1

Proof that we’re living in the best of all possible worlds: THERE’S A SQUIRREL GIRL GRAPHIC NOVEL AND IT’S AVAILABLE NOW! It’s a stand-alone adventure that’s both great for new Squirrel Girl readers, and also for people who ALREADY know about how she can talk to squirrels and also punch really well! Behold: a story so HUGE it demanded a graphic novel! A story so NUTS that it incorporates BOTH senses of that word (insanity AND the weird hard fruit thingies) (they’re fruits, did you know that?) (I didn’t until I looked them up just now, so looks like we’re all learning science from this solicit text for a comic book!) Squirrel Girl has defeated Thanos, Galactus, and Doctor Doom. TWICE. But in this all-new graphic novel, she’ll encounter her most dangerous, most powerful, most unbeatable enemy yet: HERSELF. Specifically, an evil duplicate made possible through mad science (both computer and regular) as well as some Bad Decisions. In other words, SQUIRREL GIRL BEATS UP THE MARVEL UNIVERSE! We know. You can’t wait either.

Batman versus Superman.

The one question that remains: what do you think?

Trailer Time: The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

The Hobbit-The Battle of the Five ArmiesIt’s been a long time coming, hasn’t it?

I can still remember the teaser trainer to the first The Lord of the Rings film, The Fellowship of the Ring. I think it was in the fall, nearly fifteen years ago and I was completely captivated by it, freeze-framing every still so that I could get a good look at all the imagery that director Peter Jackson had put on display.

Today, we have our first teaser trailer for the final instalment of The Hobbit trilogy. This is, as they say, the defining chapter of the six films.

Follow me after the jump for an early look at December’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

Trailer Time: Godzilla (Extended Look)

May 16th can’t come soon enough.

It’s a huge date on the 2014 calendar. An enormous date. A monstrous date, some might say, circled, underlined many times and even highlighted. I’ve got arrows scribbled down in my hardcopy agenda pointing to it.

And why?

Don’t play coy! As if you don’t know!

May 16, 2014 is the date that Godzilla gets released in every-imaginable-theatre-around-the-world. Follow me after the jump for the latest jaw-dropping footage!

Trailer Time: Jupiter Ascending

Love or hate, I pay attention to everything that the filmmaking partnership of Lana and Andy Wachowski produces. I’m never indifferent to their work.

 

The first Matrix film blew me away. Not so much the sequels. I was befuddled by the still-stunning visuals of Speed Racer and absolutely adored the compelling V For Vendetta. I dug the action of Ninja Assassin and really enjoyed the complex and touching Cloud Atlas. But even while sitting in a theatre and watching one of their films, I always wondered what the next big Wachowski sci-fi storyline would be. Today, we finally get a glimpse.

 

Long spoken of, if only in quiet and careful conversation, the first trailer for next summer’s Jupiter Ascending dropped today. There isn’t even a poster for the film yet!

 

Starring Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum, and the always-incredible Sean Bean (there’s even a small role given to director Terry Gilliam in the film), take a look at this hard-core sci-fi epic.

 

It’s only the first trailer, but will Jupiter Ascending be a hit or a miss? Let us know what you think in the comment section below!

Trailer Time: A New (And Last) Look At The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Yesterday evening (or was it morning or afternoon?), Director Peter Jackson and his Hobbit film friends, including actors Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield), Luke Evans (Bard the Bowman), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Evangeline Lilly (Tauriel) and Andy Serkis (Gollum) among many others, gathered in four different cities to engage an ever-growing audience of Tolkein book and film lovers.

From Wellington, New Zealand to London, England to New York City to Los Angeles; across four time zones, questions were asked, answers were given and behind the scenes stories about the making of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug were told.

And then the new, and last, trailer for the second film in the trilogy dropped! You can watch it after the jump!
