The followers or our Pop Culture focuses might recall back in November when we showcased the first FULL TRAILER for the Netflix Original Series “The Witcher”; Now, with only about a week to go before this becomes available for streaming on the service we have The Final Trailer. Let’s take a look down below. I’ve also included some premise, casting and promotional images for good measure.
The Premise: “Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.” Continue reading Netflix Presents: “The Witcher” Final Trailer→
It’s been a few months since the first trailer for the Netflix Original Series “The Witcher” was revealed and while we posted that for you HERE, it’s awesome to have a longer Official Trailer to broadcast for you now. This actually came to light yesterday on Halloween but wow was there a lot of items to attend to and with that being the case I am just starting off your day with it. Take a look on down below and know that I will return at the close with some editorial notes.
The Premise: The Witcher follows the story of Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, who struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together.

Though I’m slightly familiar with the collectibles line from Dark Horse that features “The Witcher”, I’m not too up to date with the property itself. The statues and other assorted coolness have piqued my interest enough to be on point with the upcoming series on Netflix and we can all watch the first teaser trailer down below.

It sure is a busy day for the fans of the live-action comic book presentations as not only has Netflix begun streaming “The Punisher” but today is the day that the DC Extended Universe goes “All In” as Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg stand united as The Justice League against a common worldwide threat. Yes my friends, the long awaited “Justice League” film opens up today in theaters everywhere and comes care of Warner Brothers Pictures. Below you’ll find the theatrical poster along with premise and casting. I’ll add some additional thoughts afterwards.
The Synopsis: Months after the events of Batman v Superman and inspired by Superman’s sacrifice for humanity, Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince assemble a team of metahumans – The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg – to face the catastrophic threat of Steppenwolf and the Parademons who are on the hunt for three Mother Boxes on Earth.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Even though I greatly enjoyed the trailer than was revealed during NYCC, I am a little bit on the fence about this one. It has too much of the video game look that I hated about the action sequences in “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and we all know full-well how that film has been received at this point. Now, the DCEU found great success with the “Wonder Woman” film earlier this year so can “Justice League” work from that momentum? I am certainly hoping so because I’d love for them to continue to build upon this universe as opposed to letting it all go. The timing of the film will not let me see it during the opening weekend and probably not until the middle of the following week so if you see it right away please don’t post any spoilers in the comments. Feel free to let us know if you had a positive or negative opinion only because that is fine. I’ll likely do a spoiler free review a few days after I finally see the film. That’s all I have for now so tell me, are you excited for “Justice League” or are you giving it a pass.
By now if you were interested in the building of the DC Extended Universe you will have seen the Warner Brothers Film “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” and if that’s the case you were most likely on one of two sides of the fence about it. Some loved it and some hated it and then there were others who were smack dab in the middle about this second chapter in the DC Extended Universe. Now I don’t usually post trailers for home video releases but after the film opened they announced that an ultimate edition would be coming out and be rated “R” and have more than thirty minutes of unseen footage. The trailer below features some of those thirty minutes along with stuff you might have seen already on the big screen. Take a look.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m going to hold off the larger opinion for the Blu-ray release that I will be adding to my stack of Movie Reviews but despite that stance I will admit that I felt and had expected this film to be a whole lot better than it was. Were there some exciting moments? Sure there were but there was also a whole lot of boring and unnecessary stuff that took away from the kind of superhero film that fans have deserved for so long. I’ve discussed this with fellow geeks at length and many of us feel that its going to be a long and hard road to “Justice League” at this point. Perhaps its not fair to bring up Marvel Studios in this but honestly they have been kicking butt with the films and the recent “Captain America: Civil War” film buried this one in the box office draw after only two weeks. As I pen this narrative, “BVS” has generated $871 million dollars and has been deemed a failure if you can believe that this much money means bupkus. What do you think of the trailer for the Ultimate Edition and will you be purchasing it? Let me know in the comments section below.
