We’ve been lauding the arrival of the Sony Animated feature “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” for a few months now and only recently shared some super cool promotional posters with the readership. You can check those out by clicking THIS LINK in the event you missed it, and not to worry because the second Official Trailer is in there as a link as well. I’ve tried to cover all the bases for your ease of enjoyment. Anyway, before I lose too much track of the point – the film opens today in theaters everywhere. Let’s review the Theatrical Poster, premise and cast before I close out with some editorial opinion.

Sure its a Wednesday but that is as good a day as any to showcase a film that will be a limited run like “Once Upon A Deadpool” which opens today in select theaters for a limited time. I’ve talked about this before and if you missed the trailer posted HERE and that discussion, know that its the PG-13 version of “Deadpool 2”. Let’s check out the holiday themed poster along with some casting and the premise that was stolen from the Official YouTube.

About The Film:
To kick off the holiday season audiences of almost all ages will soon be able to enjoy the Merc with the Mouth’s reimagining of Deadpool 2 filtered through the prism of childlike innocence.

“Fox has been asking for a PG-13 basically since the start in 2006,” Ryan Reynolds told Deadline. “I’ve said no since 2006. Now, this one time, I said ‘Yes’ on two conditions. First, a portion of the proceeds had to go to charity. Second, I wanted to kidnap Fred Savage. The second condition took some explaining…”

Netflix Presents “The Umbrella Academy” Official Teaser Trailer

Music fans will know the name of Gerard Way as being a founding member of My Chemical Romance but many might not realize that he has also created an interesting comic book series called “The Umbrella Academy” and now like many other comic book properties is making its way to the small screen with a live action series on the Netflix streaming service. Let’s take a look at the teaser trailer that was only recently released.

The Premise: On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

Warner Brothers Pictures: “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” Official Trailer 2

Generally speaking, the Christmas holidays always put me in a good spirit but this year I think that the amount of major studio films and trailers are amplifying that tenfold as not only did we recently get the clips for the upcoming Marvel Studios features “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame” and now we have the just unveiled second trailer for “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” which I have been looking forward to since the first, brief trailer that we got during the Comic Con International: San Diego (seen HERE if you are interested). Now, let’s see what the Big G has been up to since that time in July.

Premise: The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species – thought to be mere myths – rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance (thanks Wiki)
