Avengers: Infinity War Trailer #2 (2018) “The End is Near”

What began in 2008 with Iron Man will begin to come to a close in 2018 with the release of Avengers: Infinity War.  The first of a two-part finale to an unprecedented 22-movie story arc spanning the Marvel Universe, the film will unite essentially the entire MCU in a fight against the Mad Titan Thanos.  Heroes will die.  Stories will end.  It’s no small coincidence that this trailer is dropping as Black Panther’s run at #1 begins to come to a close.  Marvel is clearly trying to keep the momentum of its unexpected phenomenon going, and has moved up the release date of Avengers: Infinity War one week, so that we’re only six weeks out from the BIGGEST film of the year.  This trailer is very Thanos-centric, fully introducing the threat first seen at the end of The Avengers six years ago.  Avengers: Infinity War will open April 27, 2018.

Mary Poppins Returns Teaser #1 (2018) *Another Spoonful On Its Way*

I have serious doubts about the viability of a sequel to a movie as perfect as Mary Poppins, but as far as totally teasery trailers go…..this was a nice one.  I love that Dick Van Dyke is involved.  I love the cast.  I think if anyone can come close to Julie Andrews in today’s world, Emily Blunt has the best shot, but I’m going to be skeptical about Mary Poppins Returns until proven otherwise.  Read below for more from Coming Soon.

The cast of Mary Poppins Returns includes Emily Blunt (The Girl on the Train, Into the Woods), EmmyGrammy and Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton, Moana), Ben Whishaw (SPECTRE), Emily Mortimer (Hugo) and Julie Walters (Harry Potter films), with Colin Firth (The King’s Speech) and Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins). In addition, Dick Van Dyke plays Mr. Dawes Jr., the chairman of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank, which is now run by William Weatherall Wilkins (Firth), and Angela Lansbury will play the Balloon Lady, a character from PL Travers’ original children’s books.
