All the fun to be had! All the Joy to be enjoyed! It’s all here! All the goss, all the trailers! We’ve got Kick Boxer, Magnificent  Seven, Star Trek, La La Land and xXx trailers. We also have a Star Wars Rogue One celebration reel. Told ya we had it all.

Pokemon Go

pokemon go newinfoThis is a thing. It’s happening. I have no real news on it but I feel compelled to mention that it is a thing. I would like to say though that I was unaware that it hasn’t been released in Japan yet so expect the internet to stop working altogether when that happens sometime this week.

Star Trek Beyond

Here’s the final trailer for Star Trek Beyond and Star Trek 4 has already been confirmed. Chekov, the character played by the late Anton Yelchin wont be recast though. Abrams has said that they are still thinking about what to do with his character. In other Star Trek news, the new TV show out in  January 2017 will be shown on CBS first and then made available in the UK the next day on Netflix.

xXx: The Return of Xander

This franchise has possibly the worst name possible in this age of the internet that we live in. I’d like to show a wee pic from the movie here but I’m afraid of what google will throw up at me. Anyway, Xander is back and doesn’t care for the sequel he didn’t star in.

Magnificent Seven

Here’s the new trailer for the sequel to the Ridiculous Six. Enjoy.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Here’s what’s called a celebration reel for Rogue One. What’s a celebration reel? Well it’s a made up name for whatever this is. To be honest I think this ‘Celebration Reel’ does a lot more for the film than the trailer did. No story spoilers or anything on the story at all but we get to see the film crew at work, some of the effects, people in alien costumes and plenty of practical effects. I’m pumped.

Kickboxer: Vengence

There’s a new Kickboxer film starring Alain Moussi, Bautista and Van Damme. This time around, Moussi will be playing Van Damme’s character from the original, and Van Damme will play his mentor Durand.

Eric and Kurt Sloane are the descendants of a well-known Venice, California-based family of martial artists. Kurt has always been in older brother, Eric’s shadow, as he lacks the instincts needed to become a champion. Against Kurt’s concerns, Eric accepts a paid offer and travels to Thailand to challenge the Muay Thai champion Tong Po and fails with dire consequences. Kurt sets out for revenge. He trains with his brother’s mentor, Durand, for a Muay Thai fight against the merciless champion, Tong Po. Durand first thinks Kurt is impossible to train, but through a series of spiritual exercises and tests, Durand discovers that Kurt has a deeper strength that will carry him through his final showdown with Tong Po.

La La Land

Here’s a trailer for an ‘original musical about everyday life that explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams’. On the upside it has Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling (AKA Baby Goose) in it.

Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee Damien Chazelle, LA LA LAND tells the story of Mia [Emma Stone], an aspiring actress, and Sebastian [Ryan Gosling], a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.
