Terminator: Dark Fate

After multiple failed attempting at continuing/rebooting the Terminator franchise, the filmmakers have return to their roots and are putting out a film that ignores all the events in the Terminator universe outside of Terminator 1 and one of the greatest science fiction films ever, Terminator 2.  James Cameron returns to the franchise as producer this time, and more importantly, Linda Hamilton returns as Sarah Connor.  Strangely this time, there is no mention of John Connor.  He may have possibly been killed, and someone may have risen up in his place, but of course that’s just a guess.  Either way, it seems as if there is still someone to protect to save the future and there is still a Terminator (albeit a cooler looking one) hot on their trail.  This go around Tim Miller (of directing Deadpool fame) takes the reigns.  Will this be the Terminator sequel that we finally deserve?  Only time will tell.  View the trailer below:

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

The trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s next feature film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has been released.  In typical Tarantino fashion, the film transports us 1969 Hollywood where we meet an aging actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stuntman (Brad Pitt) in Hollywood.  Along the way, we are introduced to Bruce Lee and of course Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie).  Against the backdrop of this seemingly zany story, we see the rise of Charles Manson and conceivably the tragic murder of Sharon Tate.  As always, the film seems to be stylized with that certain Tarantino magic.  View the trailer for yourself:

It: Chapter Two

After an incredibly strong first effort, the eagerly-awaited sequel to the Stephen King novel It has released it’s (excuse the pun) first teaser, and believe me, it does not disappoint.  As many already know, the second part of It takes place when the Loser’s gang (the group of protagonists) have grown up and left Derry.  A string of familiar killings brings them all back to face off with Pennywise once again.

The movie looks strong and with a cast featuring the likes of Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader and James McAvoy, hopefully it will be much better than the second half of the made for TV movie of It which started incredibly well and then fizzled towards the end.  Here’s to hoping this film will do the opposite.  From what has been said it seem that this film will stay closer to the mood and content of the novel than previous adaptations.  You can view the trailer for yourself below:

Sonic the Hedgehog

So… this is now a thing apparently.  Whether we needed it or not, the Sonic the Hedgehog film is coming.  It seems as though Sonic may be an alien sent to somehow save our planet from the evil Doctor Robotnik (played here by Jim Carrey).  How this movie will fair remains to be seen, but hopefully the second trailer will be stronger.  View the trailer for yourself below:

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker

After many strangely quiet months from the world of Star Wars, the good people at Disney finally gave us our first look at what is supposed to be the final entry into the Skywalker saga with the trailer/teaser for Episode IX of Star Wars.  The teaser doesn’t show us much, but it does give us some seemingly incredible information. We are treating to new lines spoken by Luke Skywalker, telling Rey that this is now her fight.  We also, see Rey perform some pretty spectacular acrobatics in dealing with Kylo Ren.

As cool as all of that is, the real surprise in the trailer is both the title The Rise of Skywalker, which is strange considering this film was supposed to mark the end of the Skywalker saga.  And of course, Luke Skywalker, saying “No one is ever gone” and then we hear a familiar evil laugh, which has to be Palpatine, which would be a major twist (albeit one that some have guessed).  It looks like the film is in good hands once again.
