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.
On today’s show we have trailers of the week, an update on the Tom Hardy Venom movie, Blade Runner 2049 early reviews and we wrap up with a little yippee ki yay mother fuckers.

Will The Punisher sooth my Defenders hangover? Well, its too soon to tell. I do know that Jon Bernthal was the PERFECT choice for the gun-weidling badass. I have a feeling that the brutal visuals, awesome music, and fantastic dialogue are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Netflix’s newest superhero installment.
Please excuse me while I sync up war documentaries to Metallica albums.
You know what looks fucking terrible? Being a famous celebrity. For those that have seen Amy, the great yet incredibly sobering documentary about the late Amy Winehouse, you’ll know what I mean. Being a celebrity, especially one in the entertainment business, looks terrifying. You’re constantly being pulled in a million different directions and you never seem to have a personal moment to breathe. Inviting a documentary crew from Netflix to follow you around 24/7 isn’t necessarily going to help that, but it does give fans a peek inside celebrities everyday lives. Gaga: Five Foot Two, if you couldn’t tell by the title, follows around Lady Gaga last year leading up to her Super Bowl halftime show. I’m a Gaga supporter (if you don’t like Million Reasons KINDLY LEAVE) so I’m hoping this is similar to the Amy documentary minus the tragic ending. Gaga: Five Foot Two starts streaming September 22nd.
Jerry Seinfeld always does things differently, doesn’t he? While many other comedians are signing deals with Netflix and putting their new stand up sets on the streaming platform, Seinfeld took a different approach. In Jerry Before Seinfeld, Jerry Seinfeld literally takes you back to his childhood and early stand up days before he became an international star through Seinfeld. It’s a unique take on a stand up special and a perfect layout for something you’d watch on Netflix. Jerry Before Seinfeld starts streaming September 16th.
I can’t wait to see the gang back together for Super Troopers 2! What makes this sequel special from other sequels hitting theaters these days, you ask? Well, this flick was completely fan funded via Indiegogo. That means the Broken Lizard team was able to make the sequel they wanted to make. No strings attached. That’s exciting stuff.
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.
I'll be the first to admit, I wasn't super excited about this remake. The original holds a special place in my heart and I didn't want it to be ruined. Having said that, I am hyped for this movie. It looks scary as shit. Like, wear-a-hoodie-in-the-middle-of-the-summer-just-so-you-can-cover-your-eyes scary as shit. Bring on the clown!
