It wasn’t too long ago that I shared the first trailer from the Warner Brothers Television series “The Doom Patrol” and if you didn’t see that yet just click HERE. The interesting thing about that is that the trailer was shared on the HBO Max service while the show will be premiering here on the DC Universe streaming service at the same time. Yes it’s a bit confusing, but WB owns HBO and they are really putting a lot of their cards on the table with the service to make it like their own Netflix and Hulu in some sense. Anyway, without further adieu, the second season of “Doom Patrol” begins streaming today on the DC Universe service and some episodes on HBO Max as well. Check out the poster, premise and casting down below.

So it’s been QUITE a few months since the last trailer for the upcoming 20th Century Studios motion picture “The King’s Man” was released and the film itself was supposed to be in theaters in November of 2019. I don’t know why they pushed it back to this past February but then the virus took hold of our world and now the film will arrive in September. If you didn’t see that last trailer please click HERE to rectify this. The world just received a brand-new trailer and a new poster as well. I am not sure if a fourth and final clip will come because September is still pretty far off for a film like this but let’s enjoy this down below along with the premise and casting.

The Premise:
As a collection of history’s worst tyrants and criminal masterminds gather to plot a war to wipe out millions, one man and his protégé must race against time to stop them.
