Looks like summertime is trying to put springtime down for the count, but springtime ain’t going easy. We had a nice few days up in the 80’s, now it’s back into the 70’s for the next few days. I can live with that :) Especially when we’ve got robots, wizards, mutants, and a bow on hand.

Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon

New trailer out today. And boy does it look good. Before watching the trailer, get a little taste of the clips hitfix was shown a few days ago. Visit the photo gallery over at Apple.com.  3D? meh. But I will see this in IMAX, and if the IMAX happens to be in 3D then so be it.

Ahem. Some lines from the trailer…

“Our entire spacerace of the 1960s was in response to an event.”
“You’ve lied to us. You’ve made a grave mistake.”
“From here, the fight will be your own.”

While the second movie (appropriately, “number 2”) was a bit of a miss the one thing that was truly EPIC in that film was the robot vs robot battles. And it sure looks like there will be plenty of that in this movie.

See the X-Men and Harry Potter after the jump…

X-Men: First Class

Ain’t it Cool News has an interesting take on not just this trailer, but the entire upcoming Bryan Singer franchise, assuming they get made of course. Quote from AICN is below, emphasis mine…

Now – Singer has said he wants the next film to take place in the 70’s. Then the next to take place in the 80’s.

What if…  just what if…   they’re creating a full fledged mutant film history.   Re-writing the way things go.   It is with this opportunity that you can actually build the larger fantasy universe of the Mutant story.   Does Nixon unleash the Sentinels?   Or will it be Ford or Carter?   Or will they save that for Reagan, who I absolutely could imagine building giant mutant hunting robots…  he did found our real STAR WARS initiative after all.

This film opens up the possibility of reforging the world we live in and with a series of films – realizing what we’ve kind of always wanted to see – which is that alternate timeline of history where mutants are a part of the equation.

Keep that in mind as you watch the trailer and the movie seems just a *little* more interesting…

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2

I didn’t see part 1 yet (and all the previous ones seems to blur together for me anyway), but this looks like quite a doozy. Lots of ‘splosions and I guess some people kick the bucket in this?


I have no idea where the premise of this movie comes from. I’ve heard comics/graphic novels, not sure if anyone can confirm. Regardless, it’s a 300-looking greek-ish piece with gods, former gods, battles, and one really kick-ass bow. It looks like it’s worth at least a Netflix when it comes out.
