Paramount Pictures Presents: “Annihilation” Official Trailer (2018)

Closer and closer the holidays approach so why not keep sharing the revealed trailers for some of the spookier and Science Fiction features that will be heading our way in 2018. I’ve been doing my best to maintain course on the television and movie items in terms of the films that our demographic enjoys the most. Don’t worry I will not be broadcasting any Rom-Coms here unless they feature people in spandex tights from another galaxy. That said here is an upcoming Science Fiction thriller called “Annihilation”, it stars Natalie Portman and others so check it out.

The Plot: A group of soldiers enters an environmental disaster zone and only one comes back out alive, though he is grievously injured. In an attempt to save his life, his wife Lena, a biologist, volunteers for a second expedition into the zone to figure out what happened to him. (thanks Wiki).

The Cast:
Natalie Portman as Lena, the Biologist.
Jennifer Jason Leigh as the Psychologist
Gina Rodriguez as Anya Thorensen, the Anthropologist.
Tessa Thompson as the Surveyor
Tuva Novotny as the Linguist
Oscar Isaac as Lena’s husband

Opening: “Thor: Ragnarok” in Theaters Everywhere (11/3/2017)

While it is sad to report that no brand-new first issues would be heading our way from Marvel Comics this month, I can say with some authority that the “Marvel Legacy” initiative is hitting the racks in a full steam ahead fashion and a score of titles are bringing you into the action in the comforts of home. This post however is one that is designed at getting you outside and over to the nearest theater with a viewing because “Thor: Ragnarok” opens today. Below you can find the official theatrical poster along with the premise and casting. I’ll return with a brief closing editorial thought.

The Premise:
After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor, held captive on the planet Sakaar without his hammer, must win a gladiatorial duel against an old friend — the Hulk — in order to return to Asgard in time to stop the villainous Hela and the impending Ragnarök, the doom of the Asgardian civilization.

The Cast:
Chris Hemsworth as Thor
Tom Hiddleston as Loki
Cate Blanchett as Hela
Idris Elba as Heimdall
Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster
Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie
Karl Urban as Skurge
Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk
Anthony Hopkins as Odin
Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange
Sam Neill is cast in an undisclosed role
Waititi makes a cameo appearance in the film

PiercingMetal Thoughts: For some reason the Thor films in the MCU have not been as “fun” of a ride as some of the other ones and perhaps its because they were taking themselves a little too seriously for some reason. Marvel has shown that elements of humor often work well to propel the narrative and we’ve seen this in both of the Guardians films and most recently in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”. I liked what I saw in the teaser trailer and now its only been compounded with added interest. This does this look like a thrill ride and a whole new bunch of characters to keep that MCU expanding make an appearance, there is nothing wrong with that. This will be the perfect closing up for the year of Marvel movies. You readers can let me know what you think down in the comments below. See you next time and don’t forget to hit your local comic shop for a copy of “Thor” #700 which should still be on the stands if you are lucky. Verily, I’ve repeated the cover art below for good measure.

“Hammer Time”; Behold The “Thor: Ragnarok” Character Posters

We still have a little bit of a wait until “Thor: Ragnarok” continues the live-action adventures of the Odinson as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but to help spark up even more interest a few character posters have been released. I’ll follow the Official Theatrical poster with the reminder premise and then get on to sharing those visuals. Let’s go.

The Premise:
After the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor, held captive on the planet Sakaar without his hammer, must win a gladiatorial duel against an old friend — the Hulk — in order to return to Asgard in time to stop the villainous Hela and the impending Ragnarök, the doom of the Asgardian civilization.

When this convention happens we get a bevy of trailers to post for you depending on the property and if its something that works along the lines of our geek and media interests.
