This week we have the new
Spider-Man Captain America trailer which has everyone excited about seeing Spider-Man Iron Man and Captain America go at it. We have something called Sausage Party, news on Unfortunate Events casting, The Lonely Island’s new film trailer and a Rick and Morty update.
Captain America Civil War
Well this is it guys, the big one. The trailer that gives away the goose. Captain America Civil War is big news this week. Not because the trailer fills in a lot of blanks plot wise, not because we see Ant-Man and Hawkeye finally team up but because that little pip squeak puny Peter Parker has popped up and landed in the latest trailer. Everybody gets ‘one’ so lets hope Iron Man hasn’t used his up
Rick and Morty
It’s fair to say that I have an unhealthy obsession with Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty so this little piece of news has me particularly stoked. Last we heard we were going to have to wait over a year for a new series of the show which last aired in October 2015. New episodes were set for March 2017. At Magic City Comic Con in Miami Florida however, Dan Harmon and Dino Stamatopoulos dropped some welcome information about season 3. Not only are they expecting it to air at the end of this year but instead of 10 episodes like last season, we’re going to get 14 episodes. Mr Poopy Butthole will be exited about that news too I reckon.
Star Wars: Trials on Tatooine
Valve have ben working on some pretty nifty VR stuff which will probably be a big part of gaming in the near future. We’re not quite all VR Troopers yet. We’re getting there guys, we’re getting there but not quite yet. Anyway Valve have released a trailer on their ‘VR Experience’ set on the Star Wars planet of of Tatooine. Looks pretty sweet to me.
Popstar: Never Stop Stopping
This one is the baby of The Lonely Island crew and pretty much speaks for itself. Plus it has a boat load of cameos in it and he’s kinda doing a Justin Bieber thing. Just a little warning on this one. The trailer is red band for a reason, NSFW ie there might be boobies in it.
X-Men: Age of Apocalypse
Last week we showed you the villain’s poster. This week we have the heroes poster. It’s as simple as that.
A Series of Unfortunate Events
We finally have our narrator for A Series of Unfortunate Events. Lemony Snicket is an integral part of the books and on Netflix’ new series Patrick Warburton (The Tick, Family Guy, The Emperor’s New Groove) is the new Snicket. Warburton will be joining Neil Patrick Harris’ Count Olaf, Malina Weissman’s Violet Baudelaire and Louis Hynes’ Klaus. No word on who they’re casting as Sunny, the baby of the family. Are any of those kids from Look Who’s Talking still about?
It’s amazing the tings that slip under the radar like this one for example. how come I wasn’t aware that the guys behind Superbad and Pineapple Express were making an animated film about food? It’s like some sort of adult Pixar looking thing. The antidote to ‘Inside Out’ and ‘Ratatouille’. All I can say is this thing looks awesome.
