Earlier today we got a glimpse of the final trailer of Batman vs Superman before it releases on March 25th, 2016. Check it out here!
Now something to note is that Batman has never, in the movies, kicked as much ass as he does in this trailer. It really seems that they want us to believe this will be an even fight even though we know Superman could easily win if he truly wanted to.
So what do you think? What side are you on? Let us know in the comments!
I will admit, I was not impressed by the idea of a Suicide Squad movie. Having seen the animated movie and not been impressed, a live action version does not seem all that appealing.
But man, does this trailer look good. It starts out establishing the concept of The Suicide Squad and then shows up more action than I have seen in a trailer in a very long time. Throw in some Jared Leto‘s Joker and a lot of Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn, and you have an amazing trailer. You should check it out!
So what do you think? Does DC have a winner here? The movie does not release until August 5th, so do you think they are showing us too much? Tell us in the comments!
First off, I wanted it noted that no one that I know who is a fan of comics endorses a PG-13 version of Deadpool. The very idea takes away from the character, is reductive of the idea of adult targeted comics (which have existed longer than child targeted comics) and takes away from the very spirit of Deadpool.
Comics have a long history of political and social commentary . Everything from Superman literally meaning “Uber Meinch” (the Nazi ideal) to the X-men reflecting the attempted extermination of a different race every generation since they have been out (currently the Muslims), to Captain America’s patriotism only going as far as freedom does (hence why he turns against the US Government during Civil War), comics have ALWAYS been a reflection of ourselves and the world we live in. You have children stories telling adult story lines far beyond what the kids generally understand.
This never, in popular comics, goes so far as Deadpool does. Deadpool is a reflection of comics itself. He is the only character that knows he is in a comic book, so he is the only one not beholden to its rules. He doesn’t hold back so he only inflicts minor wounds. He does not arrest bad guys so they come back to haunt him later. He does not call people “bub” instead of “asshole”. He knows the rules and he chooses to ignore them, which is great, which is entertaining. Which is why people love the character.
So to put him in a movie and then give him rules.. It is counter intuitive to the character and takes away the idea of him reacting to the fact that he’s a comic character AND NOT REAL (for the record though, only one of his personalities recognizes that, but I don’t want to make this article more complicated than it is.). The R cut does not appear to be placing rules on him, but a PG-13 version surely would.
However. There is a demand. Not only the 3,197 signatures (as of this writing) that have signed the original petition, but hundreds of thousands of kids who can’t sign the petition and very recently, every comic book fan in China. So what’s a studio to do? Here are some options:
Release a PG-13 version at the same time? Hell no. There is not enough time to make another cut and it would confuse people enough that some might avoid the movie altogether.
Wait till it comes out on DVD and then release a safe version? Again, NO! You don’t think every underage kid from every corner of the world won’t sneak in to a screening or pirate by the time the DVD comes out? In 1991 I had a pirated copy of Nirvana “Nevermind” (with the secret track) in my hands and I didn’t pay a penny for it (I did however buy it eventually) . Kids are much smarter these days than I was then.
Let the internet make it for you? This was my favorite answer once I thought of this article until recently. The internet is going to make this version even if the studios don’t.. That is unless..
Fox does it themselves and releases it a month or so, in the theater, after the R release. The internet will make one if 20th Century Fox doesn’t, so Fox might as well make money off of it. They have to advertise they are doing so though. Make the “R” limited run, maybe JUST a month, then pull it and replace it with the PG-13 (or vice versa, the censored version first, then the R version, but then we fall into the first problem of rushing a censored cut). Here is the kicker though.. They have to do it right. They have to film a single scene where Deadpool acknowledges that this is the censored version, and they literally “bleep” all his curse words (complete with visual, comic book text popups with various &$(#@!! options). This is the only way you can keep the character true and still censor him. Basically by letting him acknowledge he’s being censored. By letting him tell the kids that the things he is saying is not for them. Lastly, by letting him tell the audience that censorship is bad and that the parents should not have let them see this movie AT ALL, let alone a censored version of it, as its still going to be violent.
Make an animated version of the movie that’s PG-13! I must admit, this is an edit to the original article. I thought of this after publishing it. But imagine a cartoon version of the movie, complete with the additions I mentioned above (except the judgement) and have that be published by Marvel themselves? Then you just leave the movie itself alone! Everybody wins!
IN OTHER WORDS: Let Deadpool use common sense where the parents aren’t.
So what do you think? Can a censored Deadpool actually still be entertaining and true to the character? Do you think the whole thing should be hands off? Let us know in the comments!
So we finally got our first glimpses at “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” earlier today. For those of you far outside the loop, this is the first movie in the Harry Potter universe that does not include Harry Potter. Here is the surprising thing though..
It takes place in a very un-magical New York. Not Hogwarts, not even in Britain. New York city, just two hours from our favorite writer, Giovanni Russano (He did the “All Geeks Must Die” story for us). What makes this even more interesting is the subject matter and how the wizarding world would react. When a slew of magical creatures disappear into the sprawling landscape that is New York City, someone is going to be held accountable. Dementors might be involved, its THAT serious. Not only are they a danger to Muggles, but it breaks secrecy laws as well. So if its Newt Scamander’s fault, he may be fighting a war on two fronts. =) Only time will tell!
But here, take a look at the trailer yourself:
So what do you think? Are you willing to give this movie a shot despite the lack of the Harry Potter trio? Are you, like me, hoping to see younger versions of old favorite characters? A younger Dumbledore, a young James Potter or Sirius Black? Let us know in the comments!
Hey there folks, I’m back with yet another article and this time I’m here to bring you the first full trailer for the upcoming movie Warcraft which is based off of the very popular video game franchise of the same name. Just to be clear this is not based off of the events of the current game World of Warcraft, it is based off of the lore that has been established over the course of the games prior to World of Warcraft. So without further ado, here is the trailer of Warcraft, for your viewing pleasure.
After watching that I must admit that it looks really freaking good. Although there were a few bit of the trailer that seemed a bit off, perhaps a bit too cartoony. I’m trying to not let that ruin my excitement but you can’t really deny that there are a few moments in the trailer that seemed odd. Don’t get me wrong, I am going to see this movie and I am hopeful for this movie to finally break the dreaded video game movie curse, but at the same time I can’t just bury my head in the metaphorical sand. I’ll admit it, despite this trailer looking really cool, I am worried. However this is only the first trailer and I can’t really dismiss something that may actually turn out great. So with all that being said, I am excited for Warcraft and I will go into this with an open mind, but if things turn out not so well for Warcraft I will not turn a blind eye to it. Warcraft has a big job ahead of it, most video game movies in the past have been failures, so in order for Warcraft to break that curse they’ll have to do something that’s never been done before, and that is for them to tread very carefully. All and all I am hopeful for this movie and I am definitely looking forward to it, but at the same time I am always very cautious towards Warcraft. Duncan Jones, this is your chance to prove that successful video game movies can happen, don’t fuck this up.
Well folks, that brings yet another article to a close. Did you enjoy the Warcraft trailer? Did you hate it? Don’t care? Let us know in the comments and be sure to check out our YouTube channel to see our various discussion vidcasts. And if you want to drop in on one of our vidcasts we’d love to have you, just let us know and we’ll bring you in. I’d like to thank you for stopping by and I’ll see you at the next article, bye bye.
The idea of a movie based on the Warcraft properties intrigues me.. and scares me. There is just so much that can go wrong and it would tarnish the brand forever. However, as we can see here, the effects look amazing. So at least they have that down. =)
Check out the first footage released of Warcraft!
So this is just a teaser trailer. The full trailer will be released at Blizzcon. However we still get glimpses of Stormwind, Anduin Lothar, played by Travis Fimmel, some hippogryph action, orcs sitting idly by as a (probably human) village burns and we even see a blunderbus!
So tell us, what do you think of the footage? Do you think that letting Legendary (the folks are in charge of the recent TMNT movies) was a good idea? Are you over Warcraft because of playing WoW too much? Let us know in the comments.. Oh, and one last thing..
FOR THE ALLIANCE!
