Trailers You Might Have Missed … (July 17-23)

This week was SDCC and while I love the idea of the event and going there is definitely on my bucket list, it is a nightmare to curate the trailers from that time. There’s just so much, I am bound to forget something. So, I want to say up front that this is very likely NOT everything that came out this week, but the most important ones to me. If you really feel like I missed something vital, just copy and paste the youtube link to the trailer in the comments and it will appear as a video there!


Ready Player One

I think I was one of the few people who didn’t like the book, but oh my – the movie looks amazing and I cannot wait!!!

Thor: Ragnarok

I love the look of this so much!!!

Justice League

Even after Wonder Woman, I refuse to get excited about a DC movie just yet.

Professor Marsten & the Wonder Women

Yep, this happened.

Pacific Rim: Uprising

How cool is John Boyega?


I am so intrigued by this world!

The Shape of Water

So strange, but I like it. Of course the stupid humans just want to dissect everything.

The Disaster Movie

Have you seen the 2003 movie The Room? It’s the worst thing on the planet and now they made a movie about how they made that movie and I can’t even with laughter. This is the first time in a long time that I am excited about a Franco movie.

The Lego Ninjago Movie

Lego just makes hilarious movies.

Proud Mary

Not saying it’s like it, but it reminds me of a genderswapped version of Leon, The Professional … you know, assassin taking care of a kid and all.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

I liked the cast of the first movie better, but I am still excited.

Only the Brave

Firefighters are cool.

Rebel in the Rye

I feel like fiction IS more truthful than reality.

The Snowman

If this hadn’t been about a serial killer but rather about snowmen that actually killed people, I would have said they’ve stolen the idea from Doctor Who.


I have no idea what’s going on.


Was going to say it reminded me of Salt, then it said it was produced by the people from Salt.

TV Shows

Stranger Things (Season 2)


The Flash (Season 4)

That scene where Wally and Cisco get their asses kicked by samurai guy – I WAS THERE WHEN THEY FILMED THAT!! Also, Keiynan is like the nicest guy on the planet.

Supergirl (Season 2)

I was there when they filmed the Maggie and Alex kiss scene!!! Actually, I have to check if I can be seen in the distance when the actual episode airs.

Arrow (Season 6)

There better be a good reason how they all survived that stupid explosion.

Legends of Tomorrow (Season 3)

They really messed up so much in all the season finales last year.

The Originals (Season 5)

This will be the last season and I hear Candice is in it. I am not too happy about the new time jump, but it was to be expected. Anyway, Klaroline better be endgame!!!

Once Upon a Time (Season 7)

Was the reboot really necessary? I guess we will have to wait for the new season to find out.

Riverdale (Season 2)

Poor Archiekins

Westworld (Season 2)

It doesn’t look like anything to me. (Nah, for real, it’s going to be so intense!!!

Lucifer (Season 3)

I don’t understand anything, but yay!

The 100 (Season 4 Sizzle Reel)

I am kind of mad where they went … also, very few of the grounders were ever monsters and I don’t like that they are called that.

The Defenders

I still need to watch Luke Cage and Iron Fist before even considering watching this, but yay for Punisher.


This looks so cute.

The Incredible Jessica James

I am all for this show, but … why the name Jessica James when you have a superhero show called Jessica Jones? Like … how much more similar can the names be?

Vikings (Season 5)

Kris Holden-Ried is going to be in this season and I am all for that.

The Gifted

I think I once said I don’t like the casting, but then I remembered that I confused it with the Runaways. TOO MANY SUPERHERO SHOWS TO KEEP UP!


I love Syfy, but why is this show even a thing? No one needs that.


I am just so excited for Lockjaw, I can’t even!

Okay, this post was soooo long! What are you going to be watching?

  1. Hey Kat! Iā€™m new to this whole wordpress thing and Iā€™m trying to feet here, I was hopping you could check my blog and give me any suggestions? Sorry to bother..


    • Hey, I might hop over later on to check it out. One thing that’s always a good idea if you are new to blogging is to go and comment on other people’s blogs, but with something actually related to the blog post šŸ˜‰ If it’s similar to the ones you write about, they might visit afterwards.

  2. I think this year it is all about the Superheroes! Superhero’s everywhere!
    I haven’t ever watched one episode of the Originals but I loved The Vampire Diaries so I definitely should give it a whirl!
    These posts are so helpful for me, I always miss out on new trailers!

    • I am honestly a bit overwhelmed with all the superhero stuff at the moment. It’s so much of the same and they just keep adding new shows. I can’t keep up anymore hahaha
      Always happy if they are helpful.

      • I agree so much. I feel like every character in one superhero show suddenly gets their own show? I watched Jessica Jones and loved it but now Luke Cage and the rest are coming out?
        I can’t keep up with any of it!

      • Right? They just keep on coming. I tried Luke Cage, but I got bored. I am not sure i am in the right mindset for that kind of stuff right now. I’d rather rewatch Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency or something.


      • I saw the trailer has been leaked for infinity war and people are fangirling over it and I can’t find it and i’m like I need it. I also need to catch up on Thor (because i’ve never actually seen the first two) and wonder woman. I’m so behind and all these are coming out?!


  3. If there’s still hope for Klaroline then I should better go back to watching the series! I was shipping them so hard but then I lost all hope to see them together again… That’s very exciting!
    I also can’t wait for the second season of Stranger Things!!


    • Well, if you saw the end of TVD, you know there’s hope. šŸ˜‰
      Stranger Things is such an amazing show. I really didn’t think I would love it that much, because it sounded so creepy but not I am a super fan.

      • No I actually didn’t šŸ™ˆ I lost interest a bit and had to choose between the two. That’s great news though!
        Me too! If it hadn’t been strongly recommended to me, I probably wouldn’t have given it a shot but I’m glad I did!


      • I was actually watching both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals but then I decided I’d keep watching just The Originals. I think I have three whole seasons left in The Vampire Diaries šŸ™ˆ

      • OOOOH, okay, now I get it! Well, I am going to spoil you for the final Caroline scene. She opened a school for magical children with Alaric and a big donation came from Klaus with a letter. It was like that last nod in the show that their story isn’t over yet.


  4. Too many thoughts, so I’ll just say, I’m excited for a lot of what’s here. I may even check out Professor Marsten and the Wonder Women, and after hearing that the main character of Ready Player One lives in Columbus, Ohio (which actually is a fast-growing city), I may have to read the book.


  5. I’m gonna have to watch for you in the background of Supergirl haha. You should definitely watch Iron Fist! I really liked it


    • I just really had a problem with the pacing of the book. There were several passages where I was downright bored. HOWEVER, and I said that way back when I reviewed it, I could always see it being an amazing movie. I think they definitely gave it their best shot and I am really looking forward to it.

      • I am sure it will work as a movie, because that’s what it felt like while reading. It’s just that they could do scenes that I found boring as a montage and that would be way shorter, you know?

  6. Ever since “Guardians of the Galaxy”, there’s been a trend of putting pop music on trailers, and a lot of the time it doesn’t work because the material doesn’t fit. A lot of fan trailers do this as well. It’s been getting really annoying because it homogenises everything and makes them look like they’re the same, although it is Hollywood, so nothing new there.

    That’s why I love the use of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” with the “Stranger Things” season 2 trailer; it actually works, and it works better than I’ve ever seen or heard before. It’s also the standard to-which I’ll be holding other trailers that do it.


  7. Ah yes it’s so hard to keep up with all the trailers when Comic con happens- which is why I’m so glad your blog exists!! I was conflicted about Ready Player One- so I was somewhere in the middle on that one- but I did think it would make a good film, and it really looks like it will be awesome! I’m one of those (unusual) people that always enjoys the fun vibe off of the Thor films- and this one looks so so good!!! hahaha I don’t blame you about DC- so many times the trailers have looked amazing… annnd then they’ve sucked :/ hahahaha that trailer for the disaster artist had me in fits- I have seen the Room- I went to a movie night where the host decided to torture our eyes with that movie šŸ˜‰ Yeah I’ve not looked forward to a Franco movie, well, *ever*- but this is perfect!!! And I loved the Lego movie, so I’ve got to see the ninja one (and still gotta see the batman one) at some point! Oh my gosh it’s so cool you were there for both of those!!! Oh if only Klaroline was endgame- I gave up on that franchise so long ago, but would tune in just for that! I can’t believe they never took that anywhere :/

    • You have to go to a public screening of the Room at some point. They throw spoons at the screen – it’s hilarious. I am so excited for The Disaster Artist, which is ridiculous, but it’s going to be so funny.
      I’ll let you know about Klaroline when the season is done and then you can decide if you want to watch or not šŸ˜‰

  8. Okay, I’m not going to lie: I have been intending to watch Justice League when it comes out, but only for Diana and the Amazons. The DC cinamatic universe has…not been impressive. Also, why in the world are they rebooting once upon a time? (and why is the Space Needle in the background of the end thing?).

    Also, STRANGER THINGS. The fact that they’re apparently going out dressed as Ghostbusters is hilarious to me.


    • So, I am going to watch Justice League too, but I am just not super pumped about it. That’s all. DC has failed me 4/5 times as of late hahaha
      A lot of the actors from OUAT felt like it was time to leave, so there won’t be any more Emma, Prince Charming or Snow. However, now it’s all about grown up Henry and the story kind of repeating itself. It’s set in Seattle, so that’s why the space needle is important as a reference, I guess.
      Stranger Things is just the best.

  9. Great post as always šŸŒø
    Really excited for Ready Player One (I haven’t read the book yet) and The Snowman; it looks delightfully creepy! Also really want to start Stranger Things šŸ˜Š
