Opening: “The Meg” in Theaters Everywhere (8/10/2018)

Over the past couple of weeks here in my Media Metropolis, I can tell you that the summer heat has been sweltering and the humidity is enough to make you stay in the house with a giant glass of iced tea in front of your air conditioner while watching your favorite programming on whatever streaming service you prefer. It’s also hot enough to set up a base camp at the nearest beach but I should warn you that you just might have a little company if you do that. Sure, “Shark Week” might have ended a couple of weeks ago but now it’s time for the Carcharodon megalodon to show you he means business. Warner Brothers Pictures “The Meg” opens today in theaters everywhere. Here’s the theatrical poster, some premise and the casting.

The Premise: Five years ago, expert sea diver and Naval Captain Jonas Taylor encountered an unknown danger in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew. Though the tragic incident earned him a dishonorable discharge, what ultimately cost him his career, his marriage and any semblance of honor was his unsupported and incredulous claims of what caused it – an attack on his vessel by a mammoth, 70-foot sea creature, believed to be extinct for more than a million years. But when a submersible lies sunk and disabled at the bottom of the ocean – carrying his ex-wife among the team onboard – he is the one who gets the call. Whether a shot at redemption or a suicide mission, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life and the lives of everyone trapped below on a single question: Could the Carcharodon Megalodon – the largest marine predator that ever existed – still be alive … and on the hunt? (c/o IMDB).

In an effort to keep up with some of the important Horror franchises, I wanted to share the recently revealed trailer for Full Moon Studios “Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich”. I’ve never seen any of the preceding films and think that there are at least a half dozen of them so far. They even have comic books and toys which is why we’re posting. Oh yeah, this is a “Red Band Trailer” which means it pulls out all the stops and isn’t one that you would likely see on television. Take a look and watch down below your feet for these little buggers.

The CW Network: “Supernatural” SDCC 2018 Trailer

Yesterday, the 2018 Comic Con International: San Diego (or SDCC) continued into what appears to have been its busiest of days. Resultant of the offerings, we’ve been loading up the assorted sneak peeks and trailers that have been revealed across the conventions four days. If you’ve missed any of them, just click HERE for the rundown of these narratives. On Saturday, The CW Network unveiled its trailers for the DC Universe and some of its other popular shows such as “Riversale” and “Supernatural”. I’ve saved “Supernatural” to be one of my final postings about The CW Network shows since I am not too up on it. Let’s take a look.

Season 13 Recap: Dean and Sam are left reeling from the loss of so many allies and family members and their new responsibility to ‘raise’ Jack, with Sam willing to give the boy a chance while Dean is immediately concerned due to his heritage. In the other world, Lucifer keeps Mary alive as a hostage to trade for his son when he returns home, but finds himself confronted by the alternate Michael, who has killed his Lucifer and won the war. Although Dean becomes increasingly bitter at their recent losses, he gains a new sense of hope when Jack unintentionally brings Castiel back to life, but things become complicated when Men of Letters Arthur Ketch is revealed to have escaped death through a spell he received from Rowena, Ketch taking Castiel and a weakened Lucifer prisoner after Lucifer escapes back into this world when Michael tries to use his grace to create a portal so that he can conquer the other reality.

Cast/Characters: (Partial)
Jensen Acklesas Dean Winchester
Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester
Katie Cassidy as Ruby
Genevieve Cortese as Ruby
Lauren Cohan as Bela Talbot
Misha Collins as Castiel
Mark A. Sheppard as Crowley
Mark Pellegrino as Lucifer

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll have to admit that I didn’t even watch this trailer since I’d like to begin binge watching the program at some point in the near future. I’ve never seen a single episode which surprises those friends who follow it religiously. These friends ask me what I am waiting for and since I trust their views on such programming I think that I best get a move on that process. I’ve been pretty behind on a lot of my shows based on a healthy concert adventuring process or “Field Work” as it were and still need to see both “Jessica Jones” and “Luke Cage” second seasons as “Iron Fists” return looms in the months ahead. What about you readers? Have you also been following “Supernatural”? How has it managed to keep your interest for so many seasons? Chime in down below as long as you don’t give away any significant plotlines.
