A Wrinkle in Time Trailer #2 (2018) *This is NOT A Wrinkle in Time*

The first trailer for Disney’s adaptation of Madeline L’Engle’s from D23 seemed bizarre, but you can’t judge a film on just one trailer.  I think, in this case, you can in from two.  It’s been a few years since I read A Wrinkle in Time, but please tell me that anything in this trailer seems vaguely like the book L’Engle wrote.  This isn’t a “reimagining”, this is a disservice.

The cast for A Wrinkle in Time includes Oprah Winfrey (SelmaThe Butler) as Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon (WildWalk the Line) as Mrs. Whatsit, Mindy Kaling (The Mindy ProjectInside Out) as Mrs. Who, Chris Pine (Star Trek Beyond, Hell or High Water, Into the Woods”) as Mr. Murry, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beauty and The BeastBelle) as Mrs. Murry, Zach Galifianakis (BirdmanThe Hangover) as The Happy Medium, Michael Peña (Ant-ManThe Martian) as Red, André Holland (MoonlightSelma) as Principal Jenkins, Levi Miller (Pan) as Calvin, Deric McCabe as Charles Wallace, and introducing Storm Reid as the iconic literary character Meg Murry.

Bellamy Young, Rowan Blanchard and Will McCormack round out the highly-acclaimed cast.

The film is a reimagining of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel that takes Meg Murry, her brilliant brother Charles Wallace and their friend Calvin on an unexpected journey into alternate dimensions on a mission to bring home their father. First published in 1962, L’Engle’s novel has sold more than 23 million copies worldwide, receiving a recent surge following Chelsea Clinton’s mention during the Democratic National Convention. Winner of the Newbery Prize in 1963, “A Wrinkle in Time” has been translated into 35 languages.

Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time movie is directed by Ava DuVernay (Selma) and produced by Jim Whitaker and Catherine Hand. Jennifer Lee (Frozen) wrote the screenplay. A Wrinkle in Time is set to debut in theaters on March 9, 2018.

The Incredibles 2 Teaser #1 (2018) *Jack-Jack’s Back!*

Of all the original batch of Pixar films, The Incredibles seemed to lend itself most easily to multiple sequels, but-to his credit-Brad Bird didn’t have the story, so a sequel was never made.  At any other studio, they’d have just gone ahead and made one without a story (outside Pixar and inside Disney they still would have; it’s why we have five Pirates films instead of one).  But Pixar and Bird have waited until they had a story to tell that picks up largely where we last left the Fantastic Four.  I meant The Incredibles.  Clearly.  They’re nothing alike.  For one thing, The Incredibles have made a film…..and another will be coming June 15, 2018, picking up essentially where we left the super family at the end of the first film.

Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

Rampage Trailer #1 (2018) “Big Meets Bigger”

Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators. As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.

Serving as executive producers are Marcus Viscidi, Dwayne Johnson, Dany Garcia, and Jeff Fierson, with Wendy Jacobson co-producing. The screenplay is by Ryan Engle and Adam Sztykiel, and the story by Ryan Engle.

Released in 1986, the original Rampage put players in control of one of three monsters: A giant ape named George; a giant lizard name Lizzy; or a giant werewolf named Ralph. The game saw the monsters running amok across the United States, fighting the military, and destroying key landmarks. Several sequels were developed for the title as well, adding even more types of monsters to the playable roster and extending their path of destruction into the cosmos and even back in time.

Rampage is set to open April 20, 2018.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 Complete Achievement List (XBOX, PS4, PC – 2017)

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes was a gigantic game with so much to do that I never approached finishing anything other than the campaign.  So the sequel, naturally, is even bigger with several huge hub worlds, a campaign through time and space, and over 200 Marvel characters to find and add to your army of plastic heroes and villains.  Kang is the big bad in this game, and I am going to spare you the bare minimum five paragraph explanation on who he is….but he’s a big bad.  The emphasis is on Guardians and alternate versions of our heroes, but the traditional Avengers are still there.  Get to building.  This one is already out.  Achievements below courtesy of xboxachievements.com.
