Trailer Time: Jackie Teaser #1 (2016) *Portman Plays the First Lady Post-Assasination*

Natalie Portman looks like she’s got another Oscar-level role upcoming in Jackie.  The biopic will focus on Jacqueline Kennedy in the aftermath of her husband’s assassination in 1964.  This seems a perfect fit for Portman, and she bears a striking resemblance to the former First Lady.  The film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, John Carroll Lynch, Max Casella, John Hurt, Greta Gerwig, and Billy Crudup.  Jackie opens in theaters on December 2, 2016.

Trailer Time: Iron Fist Season 1 Trailer #1 (2017 – Netflix) *The Last Defender*

I just finished the first season of Luke Cage, and while it maintains the quality of the MCU on Netflix tradition, it was probably my least favorite of the series.  No knock on it, but that’s how high Daredevil and Jessica Jones raised the bar.  One thing Cage did do, was start to show you how all these people are going to be tied together, and using The Night Nurse (Rosario Dawson) as a catalyst in all four series was a brilliant idea.  If you’re wondering where all these trailers are coming from, the New York Comic Con is ongoing, and while it’s not the trailer deluge San Diego is, we’re getting trailer rain.  Iron Fist’s challenge is the same one Luke Cage faced: he doesn’t have an iconic archvillain.  It looks great, but great heroes need great villains and though the tweak to the Serpent Society they did with Cage was pretty brilliant and well-acted, it’s not Kingpin or Killgrave.

Also revealed at the same panel that gave us the Iron Fist trailer was that Deborah Ann Woll, who plays Karen Page on Daredevil will also be playing that role in The Punisher show, and the identity of who The Defenders will be facing was revealed.  Well, the actress playing whoever the villain is (and I have no clue who it could be) will be Sigourney Weaver.  This experiment on Netflix has just been a home run for both Marvel and Netflix and I’m looking forward to seeing Danny Rand arrive in the MCU when Iron Fist Season One is posted on March 17, 2017.Iron Fist, Netflix

Trailer Time: John Wick Chapter Two Trailer #1 (2017) *Stay Away From His Dog!!!*

I was not a huge fan of the first John Wick (or THE WORLD’S ANGRIEST PET OWNER).  People hyped it to me as an amazing action movie, and I just thought it was kind of boilerplate, and with any Keanu Reeves movie, you need to have a whole lot of stuff happening so he doesn’t have time to try to, God forbid, act.  It’s kind of like jangling your keys in front of a Golden Retriever so he gets all excited and forgets to drool.  That’s how you win with a Keanu movie.  I did give it a second try, and was less harsh on it.  I can see it as a guilty pleasure action movie. It did extremely well at the box office and revived Reeves dormant career, so there’s obviously now John Wick Chapter 2 (cause it’s so literary).  For more details reed Coming Soon’s take below and check out the trailer and poster for the February 2017 release.
