Trailer Alert – The Last Jedi
WARNING: This trailer contains potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. If you’d like to go into The Last Jedi fresh, then skip this trailer and just watch the first trailer to help ease your nerves. Having said all that….THIS TRAILER FUCKS. I am beyond hyped for this. Like more excited than I was for Episode VII. That’s REALLY excited. So excited that I may try to stuff myself into an industrial sized freezer so. I can be preserved and then thawed for the premiere of this film (A la Eric Cartman waiting for the Nintendo Wii).
Does this look something you’d want to see? …What a stupid question, of course it is. The question is how many times will you see it? Me, I’m going to see it at least 3 times (regular, 3D and IMAX 3D). That should hold me over until I can watch the blu-ray extras so many times that the disc breaks in a million pieces.
Wes Anderson makes a movie about dogs (in the style of ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox’) living on a trash island together after being kicked out of Japan. Got that image locked in your head? If you do, then you might not need to watch this trailer. It’s Wes Anderson to the max and I mean that in the best, most amazing, way possible.
At long last, we have a full-length trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander.
I’m a huge ancient tomb/history/international terrorist movie/video game guy. Everyone knows that. Indiana Jones, National Treasure and the Uncharted games are all prime examples of my obsession. But nothing, and I mean nothing, hits the nostalgia bone like Tomb Raider. From my first time playing on Playstation, to seeing the Jolie movies multiple times in theaters, I whole heartedly love this franchise. The fire was re-ingnited last year with the brad-new Tomb Raider game on XBone and this trailer has turned that fire into a fire tornado. Yes, a fire tornado.
Also, Alicia Vikander looks badass as Lara Croft.
On Defenders day we get a Punisher trailer!? Talk about having a FUCKING day!
While this “trailer” doesn’t show you much, it actually gives you everything you need to know about the newest Netflix Marvel series. It’s going to be dark, gritty and have lots of long, deep, bloody monologues that will undoubtedly sound bad as fuck coming from the lips of Jon Bernthal. While I’m pretty content with my Marvel Netflix selection right now, (being able to go home tonight and binge the shit of the The Defenders and all) I know by the time Game of Thrones is over on Sunday I’m gonna be jonesin’ for some Punisher.
It’s no secret that here at The Average Nobodies we are big Shia LeBeouf guys. We’ve been in his corner since day one and we aren’t leaving. Having said that, it should come to no ones surprised that we are tickled pink by Shia playing tennis legend John McEnroe. After the blockbusters-only start to his career, Shia seems to be only doing pieces that he find interesting and moving. In a Variety.com interview, he actually said that he cried the first time he read this script. Interesting show of emotions for a film like this, but I also cried during the oping credits of Wonder Woman, so who am I to call the kettle black. I’m always excited to see Shia get deep in a character, so this film particularly peaks my interest.
