Trailers You Might Have Missed … (July 18-24)

trailers

This week we have a sort of SDCC edition of trailers and promos because that is where most (but not all) of them come from. In fact there was so much to choose from that I may have cut it down a little so that the post wouldn’t be too overwhelming … which it will probably still be. Now, before we get started, I just want to give a shout out to all the people who send me links for trailers (like for example you, Rami) because I really appreciate the thought behind that, but you need to trust in me that I will bring the best trailers to you! I have a pretty good network of getting them myself and I get confused if I end up with too many notifications and links. But if I ever do end up missing something essential, please feel free to make me aware of that in the comments!

Movies

Suicide Squad

So, this is probably my least favourite of all the Suicide Squad trailers, but I may just be a little bit in love with the editors nonetheless. Seriously, who is cutting those trailers? THEY SHOULD BE CUTTING EVERYTHING, THEY ARE SO ON POINT!

Justice League

I am more or less excited about this. More, because it packs more humour than the dreadful Batman vs. Superman did, and less because even though they have great casting they completely disregarded the already existing TV universe. I’ll get over it eventually … probably once I can actually see the movie.

Wonder Woman

I know this is a movie about a powerful woman and I don’t want to diminish the awesomeness of that AT ALL, but I do love any movie with one of the Chrises in it (Chris Pine, Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris I-don’t-even-know)

Doctor Strange

It’s still the comic book adaptation I am least excited about in the near future, but it does look so much better than the first promo we got! It’s just that houses that fold into themselves keep reminding me of Inception, I can’t shake that.

King Arthur

I love the Arthurian legend, usually really enjoy Guy Ritchie’s vision and CHARLIE HUNNAM – I need no further convincing!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

MAGIC! YAY! (Is it weird that I just want the Newt Scamander Pop Figure?)

Kong: Skull Island

Ever since the whole HiddleSwift fiasco, I can’t take Tom all that serious anymore … it’s just weird that this really made him loose some of his credibility in my eyes. However, Brie Larson is awesome, so this is a maybe for me.

The Girl on the Train

Still wondering if I should read the book …

xXx: The Return of Xander

I was honestly not expecting them to make another movie in that franchise.

The LEGO Batman Movie

I guess the first Lego movie was so successful, they have to keep banking in on it. It does look funny though.

Moana

I don’t understand a word BUT CUTENESS!!!!

TV Shows

Sherlock Season 4

I have no words other than FINALLY!

American Gods

It’s a Neil Gaiman adaptation, so I know the hype around it will be big no matter what!

All the Marvel Stuff

(including The Defenders, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Agents of SHIELD, …)

All the DC Stuff

(including Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow …)

Once Upon a Time (Season 6)

They are showing Jafar, but THERE ALREADY IS A JAFAR!!!! They made it very clear that Once Upon a Time and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland belong together and share characters, so WHY is this a different actor now?

The Vampire Diaries Forever

I think it’s about time this is ending. Better go out with a bang though!

Lucifer Season 2

I need to know more about Mum!

The 100 Season 3

Teen Wolf Season 6

Why do they always put Stiles through the emotional torture?

High Maintenance

I just finished Looking by watching the absolutely fantastic movie they ended with and then I stumbled upon this little promo. HBO always has great content, so I am pumped for this!

Sorry this got so long, but as always, what are you going to watch?

  1. My thoughts in order:
    1. Thanks for the shout out!
    2. AAAAAAH! Ghost Rider! I can’t wait, but I worry they won’t show his skull side as much. Or that the CGI for it will be terrible. After all, they could only afford to really show Hive’s true form for a minute in the season finale. How much does it cost for a really good flaming skull?
    3. Blame Sense8. Naveen Andrews is busy with that, so they had to recast Jafar. Not the first time: Robin Hood was played by a different actor in his first appearance. When he became a regular character, a new actor was chosen to play him, for whatever reason. Same with Maid Marian.
    4. AAAAAAH! Lucifer season 2! I want to rewatch the entire first season now, but I’m not sure if I should.
    5. Well, at least Teen Wolf will be back sooner than I expected, but I’m a little sad that it’s the last season (even if I kind of expected it). I hope everyone survives, and that it turns out alright. Also, I would love to see Derek back. We never really learned what happened to him.

    • 1. You’re welcome
      2. I don’t know … I have sort of lost interest in Agents of SHIELD. They had a more than solid first part of the 3rd season, but I still haven’t watched the finale.
      3. SENSE8 WILL NEVER BE BLAMED FOR ANYTHING! THAT SHOW IS PURE GOLD! But it doesn’t feel like they recast Jafar and more like they made a new character.
      4. I don’t have time for rewatches, but go for it, if you feel like it 😀
      5. I am so done with Teen Wolf. Season 5 was absolutely terrible. I would love to have Derek back as well, but seen as he is now Superman on Supergirl, I kind of doubt that will happen.

      • SOOOOO, I’M BACK !
        -I’m so anticipating Suicide Squad, I can’t even put it into words, and I think for me too, this is my least favorite trailer.
        -WHY DID THEY CHANGE THE FLASH WHY ? NO!!!! That’s so wrong and confusing, I love the Barry Allan from the TV show. The movie does look funny though hahaha.
        – Why are all Chrises handsome ? 🙈 Omg we sound sooooo shallow !! Hahahah
        – oh totally off topic here, but is it just me or did they change the Marvel ?
        – Yaaaay ! I looove Arthurian stories so that’s enough for me to be excited about this movie !
        – There are soooo many great movies coming out this week, Fantastic beasts is one my most anticipated. Harry Potter world, so duh ! 😁
        – I have been debating reading the Girl on the Train for so long that i just sort of lost interest but I’ll definitely watch the movie.
        – Moana is so cute that Ill watch that trailer in all languages available 😂😍
        Well this was a long comment, but I just had to, right ? Hahahaha

      • YAY! I love long comments 😀
        -Suicide Squad is my most anticipated super”hero” movie of the year 😀
        – I am super mad that they don’t acknowledge that the DC verse already exists on television. It works so well for Marvel … I think that might have been a mistake.
        – We are shallow, but I don’t care. All power to the Chrises!
        – Hello there fellow Arthurian 😀 another thing we have in common. I like it!
        – I think I am among the last people who haven’t read HP. hahah I am still excited about the movie though, I loved all the previous movies.
        – Moana will top Lilo & Stitch at the rate they are going right now.

      • Hahaha then I shall keep posting my rambly comments 😂
        And yes we do have a few things in common which I’m super happy about !
        Well I already knew that 😂 but I grew up reading them and it definitely is easier than reading them aaaall for the first time now ! But you should though ! If you eventually have time 😂
        Yees ! It probably will.

      • Weird thing is, I am not sure I want to read them now … maybe when I have kids. Is that a weird thing to say? It’s getting even stranger, because I am thinking about buying The Cursed Child … I am not all there sometimes.

      • I got the Cursed Child early yesterday, because I work at a bookstore. I am not allowed to officially buy it until today, but I already got a snoop of it 😀 I love books that are written like a script. I just like scripts in general hahaha maybe that will spark my interest in reading the other books sooner.

  2. I’m sad, but I kind of suspected that this season of Teen Wolf will be the last. My theory is the final scene will be them at graduation, and that’s the series wrap. I also have a theory that I will cry. AND I’M SO HAPPY THEY’RE DOING THE WILD HUNT THING. I’ve always liked the creepiness of that legend, and once I pegged Parrish as a hellhound (when Lydia mentioned the Wild Hunt early in season four) I hoped that they would bring the actual hunt part into it. I’m happy yet sad. Hopefully this will be a totally epic season.

    AND SHERLOCK. //drools

    • I know it sounds harsh, but I am glad Teen Wolf is ending because it’s going in a direction I don’t like. I haven’t enjoyed season 5 at all … so, maybe it’s for the better. And I can definitely see them ending with graduation.

      • No, it doesn’t sound harsh. I get it. I didn’t like season five as much as I liked the others, and while I didn’t hate it, I just felt kind of “meh” about it. But I’m hoping they’re going to attempt to do a go out with a bang sort of thing and write a super fantastic season six.

  3. Hmmm. I liked that Suicide Squad trailer. I really hope that hype doesn’t let me down. It was filmed in my city after all. I got to see a lot of cool things when they filmed!

    As for the Justice League trailer, I still don’t know how I feel about that Aquaman. He looks more savage then the Aquaman I know from the comics. And that Flash is going to have to grow on me some more! 😛

  4. Omg yes to Sherlock!! I saw the trailer yesterday and squealed like a little girl! I am so excited!! Also, I have watched up until about halfway through season 5 of Once Upon a Time, but I need to carry on watching!!! But I still watched the trailer for season six and I am still excited. Plus, I love the character who plays Jafar 🙂

    • I don’t have anything against the actor who plays Jafar, but why have two people in general? Especially since it wasn’t a character that just appeared once, but rather a main character in the series. I get that the other actor is busy, but they didn’t have to go in that direction with the series anyway now that they different villains anyway.

      • Understandable. I mean, I do actually need to play catch up, so I may actually feel the same way as you do by the time I have. Although normally, as soon as I get used to another actor playing the character, it doesn’t actually bother me that much

        Like

      • Well, Jafar wasn’t in OUAT but he was in Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. He was the main villain there and since they brought the Knave over to OUAT, they made it very obvious that those two belong together. So, I had an entire season of Jafar being the main villian … it just feels wrong, you know?

  5. So many superhero movies!! The ones I particularly like the look off are Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman. I’m less interested in the Justice League one simply cos I’m really not sold on what they’ve done so far (I saw Man of Steel and wasn’t impressed; the trailer and reviews of Batman v Superman would have been enough to put me off- but honestly I never want to watch a movie called Batman v Superman- when I heard it I instantly thought Pirate v Ninja and just laughed it off, before I realised it was real) I’ve kind of ignored the Hiddleswift drama- I kinda went off him just cos I didn’t like him *at all* in the hollow crown adaptation of Henry V. And yup- I kind of feel duty bound to watch and like American Gods regardless- but I didn’t know that was happening- so now I am ridiculously excited!!

    • Suicide Squad is definitely my most anticipated super”hero” movie this year, but I also like the looks of Wonder Woman. She’s a badass female and I think the first one to get her solo movie since the new boom of superhero movies.
      Batman vs. Superman was dreadful … really, I just couldn’t. It was sometimes a random constellation of scenes that made no sense. I think it was just too much that they tried to cram Batmans origin story in as well as the whole drama about humanity doubting Superman. I actually really liked Cavill as superman here though. I just wanted to hug him and tell him that it would be okay. I am not a fan of Ben in general, so he left me a bit cold as Batman.

      • Me too! Yeah I think she’s one of the most fresh and exciting superheros I’ve seen in a long time! Yeah that’s what I’v heard :/ ughhhh that annoys me so much- especially cos we recently had the nolan version and that was so good. I wanted Joseph Gordon Levitt to come back as Robin who had become batman, following on from the last films :/ but they didn’t want it in that universe :/ (why I’ll never know) I do like Cavill- but don’t think they’ve done a good job. And I just want to hug him anyway 😉 Nor am I- I didn’t like the casting at all- and as I said, I kinda wanted Levitt- because, well, he’s Joseph Gordon Levitt (jeez- I may be coming across as *slightly* guy obsessed in these comments, but that’s just cos… well, I’m slightly guy obsessed 😉 hey- we are talking about fit guys in capes 😉 )

  6. Yeah, the Justice League trailer just.. I don’t know, fell flat. I don’t know why I’m not as excited as I should be, but I’m not…. The new flash season seems interesting and TOM FELTON. Need I say more? I actually just recently finished Sherlock so I haven’t been waiting that long, but yes, finally! Moriarty! They chose a different actor for jafar because Naveen Andrews is in sense8.

    • People keep telling me about Naveen, but I don’t think that’s an excuse hahaha they could have just NOT went with Jafar again. There are so many other villains, so many other realms. They already went with Disney movies and they JUST introduced the Jekyll-Hyde thingy, so why bring it even up?
