Trailer Time: Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer #3 (2017) *For My World to Live, Yours Must Die*

While they haven’t specifically used the word, it seems clear that Unicron is the threat in Transformers: The Last Knight and that he is responsible for turning Prime evil (didn’t we do that already?) and trying to consume Earth.  While this is the least annoying of the trailers for the fifth live-action Transformers film, it still doesn’t give me any hope that anything has changed.  What’s more chilling is that director Michael Bay is claiming (I gave the source for CONTEXT) that 14 more Transformers films are in the works following next year’s Bumblebee spin-off, which will be a prequel.  Just mull that over.  TWENTY of these if they keep making money.  For what that will cost, we could go to Mars…..and leave Michael Bay there.

Poll Results: What’s Your Most Anticipated Summer 2017 Film?

Now that the chaos of March is done, we have a fairly quiet month reserved for The Fate of the Furious to rule until the summer movie season begins proper in May.  Killing Time readers voted and their most anticipated film of the season is the first one out of the gate: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.  Remember waaaay back in 2014 when no one knew (ok, yes, I knew) who Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot were?  Marvel took a huge gamble on casting big names and giving director James Gunn all the money he needed to make a science fiction epic and open the cosmic corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  It opened the first week of August and practically steamrolled the box office for two months, ending up the year’s highest grossing film.  Now all those characters and more are movie icons and the sequel is getting the coveted “Marvel May Weekend” summer spot.  What a difference three years can make.

Trailer Time: Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer #2 (2017) *Pretty Much What Meets The Eye*

I try to make it a policy not to pre-hate movies (I reserve the right to occasionally diverge), with the exception of the Transformers series as directed by Michael Bay.  The Transformers were, and are to many people in my generation, an integral part of our childhood memories and Bay has despoiled them.  If they’d ALL been awful from the start I’d understand it more, but the first film was not bad.  It was flawed, but I got my chills moment of Peter Cullen’s voice emerging from a live-action Optimus Prime.  Since then, they’ve been crude, noisy, unbearably long, stupid, occasionally racist, degredations of everything that made the Transformers cool.  Also there’s been a weird move to make Optimus Prime act less and less like Optimus Prime until apparently he’s just the villain in this film.  I say apparently, because this trailer is weird.  It’s shot like a documentary of the life of a little girl who likes bots until things get splodey at the end.  Oh and in case you thought anything has changed, Grimlock barfs up a hatchback.  It’ll make a billion dollars.  Whenever they pry Bay from this franchise, if they even manage to get a genuine fan in the director’s chair, I don’t think you could undo the damage.  But since there will be one a year now, we’ll probably find out.  Transformers: The Last Knight will open June 23, 2017.

Poll: What’s Your Most Anticipated Summer 2017 Film?

Amazing as it was, it’s nice to finally put 2016 to bed and to get on to the business of a new year of movies.  I apologize for being a big behind on reviews, but I should have that caught up by the weekend.  The summer is traditionally where the movie industry showcases their biggest, loudest, splodiest, franchisiest entries, but-let’s face it=summer began last week with Logan.  Summer, now-apparently-runs from March to August, but we’re going to be all crazy traditional and limit this year’s Most Anticipated Summer Film to May – August (we’re wacky like that).

All the Super Bowl 51 Movie Trailers!!!

Atlanta Falcons, New England Patriots, Super Bowl LI, Super Bowl 51

While the Patriots may have won the most epic Super Bowl of all-time, movie fans watch the Super Bowl as much for bite-sized new trailers as the action on the field.  Last year’s Super Bowl gave us one of the best trailers of the year with a full-length Jungle Book trailer.  This year gave us Super Bowl sized trailers for Logan, Beauty and the Beast, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, The Fate of the Furious, Transformers: The Last Night, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and more.  Plus, if you had any doubt Stranger Things is Netflix’s most successful series yet, the streaming giant took out a Super Bowl ad for the show’s second season.  Check out them all out below!
