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!
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.
I’m a sucker for Fassbender. That being said, when I found out he was starring in The Snowman a year or so back, I went to Barnes & Noble and picked up the novel first. I liked the book so much, I’ve since read 3 others’ in author Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole crime novels. I have been drooling for this trailer for months now and let me tell you, it does not disappoint. The music for the trailer is perfect, the filming locations look beautiful and absolutely nothing is given away. In the simple words of Magneto, “perfection.” The cast includes Michael Fassbender as Detective Harry Hole, Rebecca Ferguson and JK Simmons to name a few. Combined with Director Tomas Alfredson known state side for his work on Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, we’re in for an edge of your seat serial murder mystery thriller. I’d like to say I won’t watch another trailer for this flick because I’m beyond hyped for it and this was all I needed to see, but then again, I can’t control myself. If anyone needs me, I’ll be watching this trailer on repeat for the rest of the day.
After almost a full year of trailers and teasers, this film needs no introduction. Christopher Nolan looks to have another hit on his hands. His next movie should be a biopic on King Midas, starring himself as King Midas. It’s just him walking around touching stuff… This is just the early stages of the idea, give me a break.
While I can’t tell you anything that Tom Hardy in a WWII fighter plane can’t, I will share this nice tie bit regarding Dunkirk: It’s being shown on select screens (Thanks Indiewire) in glorious 70mm. If you remember, back in 2015 Quentin Tarantino did the same thing with The Hateful Eight. To some degree, IMAX and 3D showings are just gimmicks, but 70mm screenings are the TRUTH. If it’s playing near you in 70mm, go see it in 70mm.
