Bright Trailer #1 (2017) *Will Smith’s Netflix Blockbuster*

Netflix continues to forge ahead with their plans to take on the big boys in movies as well as TV, despite the critical bomb that was Brad Pitt’s War Machine.  The next big effort will come in December with Will Smith and Bright.  You can’t say it’s not ambitious.  I really didn’t think you could come up with a more diverse, racially-divided LA, but…hats off to David Ayer for bringing elves into the mix.  It looks like it could be great or awful with absolutely no middle ground.

The movie was directed by Max Landis and it also stars Noomi Rapace, Edgar Ramírez, Ike Barinholtz, and Brad William Henke.  Bright will be available to stream on Netflix starting on December 22, 2017

Set in an alternate present-day where humans, orcs, elves, and fairies have been co-existing since the beginning of time. Bright is genre-bending action movie that follows two cops from very different backgrounds. Ward (Smith) and Jakoby (Joel Edgerton), embark on a routine patrol night and encounter a darkness that will ultimately alter the future and their world as they know it.

Pacific Rim: Uprising Teaser #1 (2018) “JOIN THE JAEGER UPRISING!!!”

Pacific Rim was a lot of stupid, huge fun, but it could have been more.  Charlie Hunan is not a strong lead, and not even the greatest name a character has had outside of the Star Wars Universe: Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost, could save it from being essentially a huge B-movie.  But oh there is an uprising….there is an uprising a’coming, people.  And if your last name happens to be Jaeger (which mine does), you are going to play this first teaser trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising every morning like audio cocaine to start your day until the film opens in February 2018.  For full details from Coming Soon, read below.  RECOGNIZE JAEGER PRIDE!!! (Oh, no, this is just beginning! Imma gonna milk this like a yak for eight months!)

The Snowman Trailer #1 (2017) “The Iceman Cometh”

Boasting an impressive cast, and adapted from the best-selling novel by Jo Nesbo, The Snowman…doesn’t seem immediately to have anything to distinguish it from the run-of-the-mill horror film.  However, when you have Fassbender, JK Simmons, Val Kilmer, Rebecca Ferguson, and others involved, there’s always the possibility….oh hey, remember the Michael Keaton movie where he’s a crap dad, dies, and comes back as a reincarnated snowman?  This, I say with confidence, is already a leg up on that.  The Snowman hits theaters in October.
