20th Century Fox Presents: “Deadpool 2” The Final Trailer

The big screen is going to blow up big time thanks to the the upcoming “Deadpool 2” film which brings the misadventures of the Merc with a Mouth to life once more and since this film is around the corner in terms of opening, a Final Trailer has been released. Check it out below.

Per The YouTube Video Page: After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As previously noted in our earlier trailer posts, the film is NOT about what it says above. This trailer seems to give away too much and I don’t know why they choose to do this. Maybe some films need it done, like “Fantastic Four” (which was terrible) and “Justice League” (which was “meh”) and “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” (which was a massive disappointment) but based on the box office numbers of the first film, its safe to say that “Deadpool 2” will not need any help. I like what I saw here and think Cable is going to be a solid character to have in the X-Men universe of films along with the other members of X-Force. You know that they will get a film of their own eventually too. That’s all I am going to say here because I am getting ready to attend a couple of Metal shows and then one of the days of the NYC Hot Sauce Expo and in addition to that, the “Avengers: Infinity War” film is opening up next week and I am STOKED for that one. What did you think of the trailer? Chime in down below as usual.

Spotify Transports NYC Commuters to Mars with Immersive David Bowie Subway Takeover

This news was making the rounds yesterday afternoon so I made sure it would be one of the first things you would see from us today. Check it out, as its pretty darned cool.

The Press Release:
Although he hailed from London, music icon David Bowie spent the majority of his life living in, and falling for, New York City. After moving across the pond, he was welcomed to the City with open arms, and soon came to call himself a New Yorker. In the way that Bowie discovered his adopted city, Spotify is giving music lovers the opportunity to go on a journey through the immersive David Bowie Subway Takeover exploring the musician’s influence on music, fashion, culture, and the city that he loved.

David Bowie is, organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, has been up since March at the Brooklyn Museum and honors Bowie’s life, art, and work. In a larger-than-life extension of the exhibition, Spotify is transforming New York City’s Broadway-Lafayette subway station into an underground takeover that pays tribute to the legendary works and sensational life of the musical icon. Fans and visitors can be awed while exploring the Broadway-Lafayette station from Tuesday, April 17 until Sunday, May 13.

Inside the station, visitors will encounter numerous subway-wall-sized images of Bowie-inspired art, from fan-made to pieces currently on display at the museum exhibition. Each piece of art will be paired with something Bowie has said that speaks to his affection for the city and its impact on his work, giving further insight into the artist’s mindset and methods. Each piece will also contain a unique Spotify code that brings fans closer to Bowie music and will accompany the underground experience.

Commuters and subway station visitors will also be able to fly away to their very own “Life On Mars” with “Tickets to Mars;” keepsake MetroCards that may be found available for purchase inside the Broadway-Lafayette station. These MetroCards, which each display one of five Bowie personas including Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, and Thin White Duke, will be great mementos for those lucky enough to snag them. Visitors can also create their own Bowie universe by posting photos of the experience with the hashtag #DavidBowieIsHere.

The intricate details that make up the subway takeover speak to key moments in Bowie’s New York City history, many of which were in the neighborhood surrounding Broadway-Lafayette, where he spent over two decades. From legendary concerts at Carnegie Hall to recording sessions at studios like Electric Lady and the Magic Shop, the takeover beautifully explores how the City impacted the artist, and speaks to visitors about the truly unforgettable mark of New Yorker David Bowie.

Beyond the physical subway takeover, Spotify’s multimedia format, Spotlight will further extend the everlasting magic of Bowie with the introduction of a new series, David Bowie Stories. This series will give fans an even deeper look into the life of the musical icon with content including anecdotes, tall tales, origin stories, making of’s, mini-essays and more, paired with photos, video, and items from the David Bowie Archive.

*** end of press release ***

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I grew up on the music of David Bowie thanks to my Mother and though I don’t think she is listening to him much nowadays, that influence is still ringing strong in her number one son 🙂 I never got to see Bowie in concert but loved all the live videos and interview clips along with the stuff that used to air on MTV so I’ve got more than a sufficient background. My hope is to get to this station in the coming days and share my own photographs with you all so please stay tuned. I also hope that I can snag the Metrocards and dont’ have to wait a crazy long time. What do you readers think about this news? Does it spark your interest? Chime in down below if it does.
