Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 Trailer #1 (Disney – 2019) *#CloneWarsSaved*

 

One of the biggest and most surprising announcements out of San Diego Comic-Con this year was the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars for a seventh and final season.  The Clone Wars was canceled in 2013 after five seasons (a sixth abbreviated season was released on Netflix after cancellation).  The Clone Wars animated series was arguably the biggest thing to happen in the Star Wars Universe between the prequel and sequel trilogies.  It did a lot of expansion of the roles and stories introduced and left unexplained in the prequel trilogy and probably helped to salvage (or mitigate the damage of) those movies for a large portion of the fanbase.  While many of SWCW’s plotlines continued into Star Wars: Rebels, many of the series most important questions were left unanswered.  Now that Rebels has finished, SW animation guru Dave Filoni will have the chance to go back and properly finish out Clone Wars.  Disney will be premiering a new streaming service next year and 12 final episodes of The Clone Wars are expected to premiere there sometime in 2019.Star Wars: Clone Wars SDCC 2018

Comic-Con 2018: Recap Plus Pictures and Posters From The Convention!!!

Jason Mamoa in Aquaman
Comic-Con 2018 has come and gone, and while we got some good trailers out of it, the convention is probably more remarkable for who wasn’t there.  For a San Diego Comic-Con, this is the lightest news and trailer weekend of any in recent memory.  Warner Brothers and DC Comics pretty much had the weekend to themselves, though the biggest news of the weekend, arguably, came out of Marvel & Disney as Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was fired right before his scheduled appearance in light of offensive tweets from the filmmaker’s past.  The DCEU was rebranded “The Worlds of DC” and the first trailers for Shazam and Aquaman debuted as well as new trailers for DC’s six live-action TV series.  I thought the best trailers of the weekend were Glass and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.  I was really excited to hear that Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be returning for a proper send-off (finally!).  I think my favorite story out of SDCC 2018 though was Marvel running a grief counseling booth for people still traumatized by the end of Avengers: Infinity War (you can read more here).  The convention was also lighter on posters and promo art than years past, but I’ve put together a gallery of the best below.  See you next year, San Diego!

The Walking Dead Season 9 Trailer #1 (2018 – AMC) “Rick’s Last Ride Begins”

The Walking Dead is headed for some serious changes over the next year.  Season nine of the zombie survival drama will see a time jump from the season eight finale, and this season will be the last for Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes).  TWD has had some trouble staying as gripping as it used to be, and a lot of fans will look hard at how the show manages this transition before deciding whether or not to keep the show in their rotation.  TWD Season 9 will premiere on AMC on October 7, 2018.  More below from Comic Book Resources.

walking-dead-season9There are three months to go before The Walking Dead returns to AMC for its ninth season, but that’s not too early for the show’s cast and crew to converge at Comic-Con International in San Diego‘s Hall H for a panel highlighting what to expect when the show returns in October of this year. Alongside executive producers Angela Kang, Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert and Greg Nicotero, stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Lauren Cohan, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride and Jeffrey Dean Morgan were on hand to offer fans a few teases about Season 9. CBR is there live, so keep hitting refresh for the latest details.

The Season 9 premiere will be Sunday October 7th. The panel opened with the first look at Season 9’s trailer:

It opens with Rick visiting Negan in a makeshift dungeon — spoiler alert, they still hate each other. The time jump is confirmed by the look we get of Maggie and Glenn’s baby who’s probably about a year old. The communities are all looking far more sophisticated, developed and idyllic. We get shots of Rick and Michonne riding horses and fighting walkers and in general being #couplegoals. Rick has fully welcomed the Sanctuary into the fold and actively helps them rebuild. A team winds up exploring D.C. for an unknown reason, and one of the new communities (Toledo) appears to cause serious problems and be the new nemesis. Jadis has fully integrated into some society and looks pretty happy. There is underlying strife between Rick, Maggie and Darryl that looks very serious — not surprising considering Maggie’s promise to kill Negan when she gets the first chance.  Eugene and a partially blind Gabriel appear, as well as Carol who’s questioning her position in peacetime.

And finally, after the final title card rolled, we got a shot of two people sliding down a riverbank and covering themselves with mud to hide from a train of walkers. As the walkers pass, one of them whispers “Where… are… they?” So, you know, take that as you will.

Paul Rudd’s 10 Best Movies

Paul Rudd

Paul Rudd is a freakishly affable human being. There are actors whose sheer talent makes all things possible for them. Rudd has built an entire comedic legacy out of being possibly the most likable person alive. Working in TV and Movies since his early twenties, dRudd has an extremely impressive resume of comedy hits in an era that has not been known for producing reliable laughs. Rudd managed to become the unofficial “seventh friend”, marrying Lisa Kudrow’s character in the final two seasons of Friends. His film career took off after the success of 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Rudd is one of Judd Apatow’s favorite actors, teaming with the director for The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. Adding size-changing to likability, Rudd picked up another superpower when he joined the MCU as Ant-Man in 2015.
