Opening: “Deadpool 2” in Theaters Everywhere (5/18/2018)

Hello my friends, it is once again time to make the chimichangas as the Merc with a Mouth, Wade Wilson who we all know and love as Deadpool, has returned for the sequel to his first film with “Deadpool 2”. Check out the awesome theatrical poster and a completely ridiculous and untrue premise for the film along with the casting.

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.

20th Century Fox: “Bohemian Rhapsody” Teaser Trailer

20th century fox films, movie posters, bohemian rhapsody

I don’t think that I need to extol the talents of the late, great Freddie Mercury and the music of the band Queen because that could go on in paragraph after paragraph after paragraph. So many of their songs have become timeless classics and now the bands story, or more importantly Freddie’s story will be told in a brand-new 20th Century Fox Film called “Bohemian Rhapsody”. A short time ago, the first teaser trailer from the film was released. Let’s take a look at that. You can also enjoy some premise, casting and editorial thoughts down below.

Synopsis: Described as a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

Tonight: “Lucifer” Series Finale on Fox (5/14/2018)

Hey Fiends, so you know we’ve discussed the DC Comics Vertigo based show “Lucifer” here on the website, and I wanted to remind you that tonight is the season finale of the third season. Actually, I have a little bad news for you because tonight’s episode is in truth the series finale as it was cancelled by Fox a couple of days ago. Let’s review the premise and casting once more before the episode.

The Premise: The series will focus on Lucifer, “who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell and resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the beauty of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals”.

The Cast:
Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar
Lesley-Ann Brandt as Maze
Lauren German as Chloe Dancer
Kevin Alejandro as Dan
Rachael Harris as Linda Martin
D. B. Woodside as Amenadiel
Scarlett Estevez as Trixie
Tricia Helfer as Charlotte Richards/”Mum”
Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez
Tom Welling as Lieutenant Marcus Pierce/Cain

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve already admitted to never really having read the comic series and that’s fine as far as this show is concerned since they are vastly different. I did enjoy the show and will miss it in some sense since I’ve been keeping up with most of the comic book themed shows. According to what I’ve read there are a couple of episodes that haven’t been aired and these will likely be added to a home video collected edition of the series. I honestly don’t think Fox is going to waste airtime on something that they found the need to cancel. Tom Ellis was great as was Maze if I had to pick my favorites. They would be fun to turn up on “Legends Of Tomorrow” for some kind of weird episode. Anyway, let’s see how this all plays out later on. Thanks for reading.
