There's a teaser for the Netflix Punisher series:

 

 

btw, did anyone watch The Defenders? It's the big crossover series with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist, and it came out a few days ago, and boy it was quite poor. Easily the worst of all the Marvel Netflix shows I've seen so far (I didn't watch the Iron Fist solo show). Sigourney Weaver plays the most cliche villain you've ever seen, a snooty woman who appreciates the finer things in life, as demonstrated when she has a literal string quartet play classical music for her, and then again when her assistant walks up to complement her on her amazing taste in classical music just in case you didn't get it. In one of the later episodes she tells Iron Fist, "We're not so different, you and I", and then the very next episode a different character says the same line, also to Iron Fist.

 

The icing on the cake is that all the fight scenes are your standard incoherent strings of split-second shots of two figures in black clothes flailing at eachother in the darkness to a soundtrack of biffs. There are so many of them, and they're all so rubbish it's just exhausting. Iron Fist doesn't even know kung fu; any time he has to get into a fighting stance he just puts up his dukes and hops from side to side mean-muggin'.

 

So I don't know what to expect from a Punisher series any more. The Marvel Netflix shows were pretty reliable for having a good first few episodes and then falling apart towards the end, but it seems like Iron Fist was awful all the way through and Defenders was just perfectly mediocre. I really like Jon Bernthal as the Punisher, but at this point that's no guarantee of a good show.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize the studio making the third John Wick movie had access to a time machine, Ocelot.

I apologise profusely, and offer some supplementary gifs of Keanu killing people to make up for this grievous error in your John Wick 3 update schedule:

It's like they spliced Nu Tomb Raider with the Angelina Jolie movies, somehow. I don't know, I'll probably watch it one day. Looks kind of... bad, but also fine? Certainly seems to have more personality than that Assassin's Creed movie, at least. Or, y'know, the actual game this movie is based on. Alicia Vikander didn't even exasperatedly tell us "I'VE GOT TO _____".

 

The real story here is Alicia Vikander's bod, though:

Transformers 7: Johnny Boyg's Ill-Advised Moustache Edition is coming out next year, I guess.

Yeah but Pacific Rim was a great movie.

I'm so disappointed in Ocelot's taste lately.

More like a Bad Sequel to a Good Movie. :P

 

But I've still got hope that it'll be at least as 'meh' as the first one

 

Wait, that's a mustache? I just assumed that John Boyg accidentally smeared some ink on his face.

Pacific Rim was so bad.

 

At least they found a more charismatic actor to play the lead.

 

And uh, the guy who runs the Daredevil Netflix show to direct.

 

lol

You guys ready for this? I don't think you're ready for this.

 

Are you though? No? Too bad, here we go.

 

There is now a live-action Dora the Explorer movie being helmed by Michael Bay

Yo so Amazon has the rights to make a LotR television.

I'm super excited. They apparently have the blessing of the Tolkien estate which is huge. Yuuuuuuge.

This is gonna be great guys.

Haven't had any experience with Amazon shows, so this could be a good thing.

 

But I'm going to leave this here just in case I was wrong.

Album of leaked images from what I assume is an upcoming trailer for Avengers Infinity War. Wolfie, I have a birthday present for you:

LOOK AT THAT BEAUTIFUL MAN!

 

EDIT - Remember those stories about how Henry Cavill grew a moustache for Mission Impossible 6, and then they had to get him back for reshoots for Justice League but the Mission Impossible studio wouldn't let them shave his moustache and they had to remove it with CGI? Remember how that sounded like a really smart idea that nothing could possibly go wrong with and that wasn't super dumb at all and? Well...

You hear that.  That is the sound of DC fans weeping and begging for DC to make a half decent movie.

Maybe its in reaction to him discovering that he's coming to fight the Heroes of the MCU in the equivalent of a tank-top and jeans instead of his work clothes:shrug:

Thanos looks hilariously bad, but he always has. Every time he appears on screen in the MCU, I cringe. He is one character that could have used a complete redesign, IMO. There's only so much you can do with a big squat purple man with a giant chin. It's just easier to see how silly he is now that he's moseying around in the daylight with no armor like some schmo. :lol:

I'm a little worried, personally. But then, Christopher Tolkien couldn't stop the Hobbit trilogy from sucking, so maybe his presence wouldn't have affected much anyway.

Not to be a big Debbie Downer all the time, but I think this looks pretty bad. I really don't want to see a movie about a bunch of poor dinosaurs falling off a cliff; I hated that scene in Peter Jackson's King Kong where all the dinosaurs were tripping and falling. This movie seems to be more or less the same thing as all the other Jurassic Park sequels, only this time the island is exploding the whole time, which is so silly it sounds like a joke, but they're playing it super seriously. And they even did another big Hero T-Rex shot and had Jeff Goldblum say the line right in the trailer.
