I know I’m getting old, because I only got home around 2AM from my high school reunion and I’m absolutely freaking exhausted today. Time has its toll. So, let’s end this week on a chill note and check out some of the lastest TV and movie trailers.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
I got chills when Jonathan Majors showed up. He’s going to kill it as Kang.
The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special
Adding Kevin Bacon was everything.
It Takes Three
The production value doesn’t look that great, but I could be into it. Aurora Perrineau is amazing.
The Pale Blue Eye
Netflix is really leaning into Poe stories and I can’t fault them for that.
It looks kind of interesting, although I’m not sure I got the timelines exactly in the trailer.
Is it a movie about the opioid crisis? Is it a revenge movie? Is it both?
How many movies did MGK and Megan Fox do together? There’s at least three just from the last years, I think.
My mates from Dark are about to give us another breathtaking and complex show.
The Santa Clauses
I loved the movies when I was younger, interested to see how it will work as a show.
Fleishman is in Trouble
Looks really interesting to me.
Lockwood & Co (Teaser)
It’s more of a scene than anything else, but I’d watch this show despite not knowing anything about the source material.
That detective guy has a creepy vibe for some reason and I don’t think that’s intended.
Could this have Knives Out but as a limited series potential?
I think it’s a bit too short to really have an opinion on it yet.
Jack Ryan (Season 3)
I never even started the show.
Succession (Season 4)
I know a lot of people who are looking forward to this.
Servant (Season 4)
I did not watch previous seasons.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania: Phase 5 is looking great so far.
GotG Holiday Special: I already love it! Especially with Kevin Bacon in it.
Pale Blue Eye: OOOOOOOOOOOOH! Looks right up my alley.
1899: Reminds me of a book I read at the beginning of the pandemic, including the possibly Lovecraftian elements. I look forward to checking it out.
I don’t remember, did you finally watch Dark? Because I stand by the fact that it is one of the best German shows in existence. The mystery is top notch!
I haven’t. I’m way behind on my Netflix viewing. I still haven’t watched any of the recent Dahmer stuff they’ve released, and I’m definitely going through some FOMO right now.
I’m still very anti-Dahmer ever having been released. The person who made it said they reached out to the family members of the victims to make it accurate and none of them responded. Which means he should have left it alone, that should have been his sign that it was too soon/too fresh/too painful. I don’t like the fact that people are lusting after Dahmer and the trauma of these people gets dredged up again.
I do understand your feelings. However, I still want to check them out, and to decide for myself if the Dahmer stuff is actually glorifying him or not.
And it’s not like anyone is stopping you 😉 I just personally wouldn’t want to give Netflix the views.
I completely understand.
The Ant-Man trailer didn’t do much for me, but that’s ok because I am expecting the movie to be great. I loved the first two. As for the Guardians Holiday Special, that trailer definitely made a good impression and am looking forward to it coming soon. That 1899 trailer was just bonkers. Don’t know what to make of that just yet. I saw you recommending Dark in an earlier comment. I’ve toyed with the idea of watching that ever since it came out. Is there anything you would or could compare it to?
The entire trailer of Ant-Man didn’t much for me either (and I’m still a bit salty about them recasting Cassie), but I am MASSIVELY excited about Kang.
Hmmm … Dark was compared to Stranger Things a lot back in the day, but make it time travel? I think it’s far more complex. It’s not a show you just let run in the background, you have to pay attention. Also, please don’t watch the dubbed version, it’s terrible.

Thank you for the advice and heads-up on Dark. Yes, that recasting of Cassie Lang was probably a case of wanting a “bigger” star because the movie and the role going forward required it, or as simple as they owed Newton a role after promising her something else. I like Kathryn Newton a lot, but I generally don’t like it when they recast.
I definitely don’t have anything against Kathryn Newton as a person, it’s really just the recasting for clout that I have an issue with. Especially the way they handled giving the news (or lack of giving that information) to the previous actress. They should have thought ahead and used someone else in Endgame.

I am looking forward to The Guardian of The Galaxy’s Christmas special. It’s going to be a big budget throwback to TV of olde.
That guardians of the galaxy trailer cracked me up!
