Trailer Alert – Bright

Getting Will (we are on a first name basis…he just doesn’t know it) back in the role of one half of a buddy cop team is a great thing. It’s his bread and butter. So, while I wait for Bad Boys 3, this will have to do. The trailer certainly does a good job of getting my interested–Honestly, it had me at that scary fucking fairy trying to get in the bird feeder. Love weird shit like that. I think the main reason ‘Suicide Squad’ failed (to a degree) was because Will Smith needs to be in a lead role. Him as Deadshot was awesome, but his celebrity threw off the balance of the film. Him back in a leading role is what’s best for business and Netflix gets that.

Trailer Alert – The Justice League & Wonder Woman

Justice League

Get the mop, I just wet myself. Maybe I was just as excited for the first Avengers’ trailer, but I sure don’t remember that excitement. This excitement though…this excitement is palpable. I’m super ready for The Flash, Cyborg and Aquaman to join their fellow Justice League members on the big screen.

PS – GIVE ME MORE BAT-FLECK AND GIVE HIM TO ME NOW. People can argue whatever they want, but he is the best Bruce Wayne, ever. EVER. Strike me dead if that isn’t true.

Wonder Woman

Keep the mop out, there’s another puddle forming. Gal Gadot is a smoking-hot badass who makes me cry on command when she sacrifices herself for Han in Fast and Furious. She is the Wonder Woman we deserve and the one the Justice League NEEDS. With news of Brie Larson taking on the role as Captain Marvel, we are in for more badassery all around.

Comic-Con Wrap Up: If You Ask Bryan Cranston A Question, His Answer Might Include Having Sex With Your Mother

This kid thought he was going to have his shining moment, asking Bryan Cranston a question at Comic-Con. While it was a pretty poor question, I can honestly say I did not expect that answer. Albuquerque, New Mexico isn’t exactly Barcelona, Spain, so I’m not sure what Bryan Cranston was supposed to say here. If I had any advice for that kid, it’d be to get really drunk, walk two hours back to your friends apartment and then silently and awkwardly approach Bryan Cranston. That’s how you become best friends.

Comic-Con Wrap Up – ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 6 Trailer

My favorite part of comic-con, hands down, is the release of all the movie and television trailers. The panels are great and all, but nothing beats a kick ass movie trailer, or in this case, a 4 minute trailer for the new season of ‘The Walking Dead’. Season 5 ended on a killer note (get it) and season 6 should feature a lot of infighting, as well as possibly the group’s biggest non-walker threat to date. I’ve never read the comics, but I know a lot of people who have, so it’s the best of both worlds. I’m able to get some insight on things we don’t know about, but it’s not a 100% spoiler. I have a feeling this new season is going to be a game changer, and I think more than one of the group’s beloved members won’t survive to see season 7. Also, how many band aids does Rick really need on his face? Seems a little overboard to me. Season 6 premieres on October 11th.

Comic-Con Wrap Up – Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice Trailer

The long awaited trailer for the Batman v. Superman movie is finally here, and it does not disappoint. You’re still going to have people hating on Ben Affleck as Batman, but I’m in the minority of adopting the wait and see approach. If he sucks, he sucks, but there’s no use going into the movie with a negative review already written in your head. Plus, if this trailer is any indication, this is much more a movie about Superman and his friends/family/colleagues than it is about Batman. I’ve had trouble with Superman movies because it’s really hard to take any of his enemies seriously. Superman is the most over powered super hero. He can fly, he’s got super strength, he can shoot lasers out of his eyeballs. I’m supposed to believe weird hair Jesse Eisenberg can defeat a guy who shoots lasers out of his eyes? We’ll have to wait a year to see, but I can’t wait for the battle.

Conan O’Brien’s ‘Mad Max’ Entrance To His Show From San Diego Comic Con Was Glorious

Conan, Andy and the Basic Cable Band went on a little road trip to San Diego for the annual Comic Con, and they arrived in style. Mad Max style, to be more specific. I still haven’t seen the movie, but I’ve watched the trailers enough (approximately 1500 times) to know that this was pretty spot on. Conan playing the flaming guitar, Andy driving the hell on wheel mobile and the band playing the war drums were all awesome. I’ve never seen Conan live, but I have to believe he puts on a hell of a show, or else he wouldn’t be going on three decades as a host. He may not get all the fan fare of a Jimmy Fallon or soon to be Late Night host Stephen Colbert, but Conan is still delivering after all these years.
