Warner Brothers Pictures: “Blade Runner 2049” Official Trailer

It’s been an exciting few days on the film media side of the fence with the resounding response to the opening of the “Guardians Of The Galaxy” Vol. 2 film and during the viewing that I did on Monday morning, I saw the short teaser trailer for the upcoming “Blade Runner 2049” film which is of course the next chapter from the “Blade Runner” movie that came out way back in 1982. When I got home I saw that a full trailer was online care of the Warner Brothers Pictures and I am happy to share it with you now. Check it out.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This might surprise you a little bit if you know anything about my personal interest in so many different Science Fiction franchises, but I have never, ever, watched “Blade Runner” straight through and when I say this my longest time friends shake their respective heads saying “but how???” – Truth be told I don’t know how that ended up happening but it just did. I guess I got lost somewhere along the lines with the galaxies far, far, away and by boldly going where no one has gone before stuff. This admission finds me now on a mission to finally sit and enjoy this film and catch up to what everyone loved about it. I liked what I saw in the trailer and with today’s special effects the playing field is rather limitless. So what do you readers think about this trailer and the idea of a sequel to the classic Science Fiction story? Let me know in the comments section below.

PiercingMetal Sees “Suicide Squad” @ Alpine Cinemas

Hey there readers so “Suicide Squad” opened just over two weeks ago at the time of this writing and since I am aiming at doing a lot more movie reviews when they are still in theaters here we are. I usually hit these films with our stalwart media companion Skeleton Pete but he couldn’t join me this time around. With this film, I decided to keep it local and went to the Alpine Theater in my own Bay Ridge neighborhood which was a better idea since the price of my ticket and some snacks were about the same as the ticket only at the Manhattan theater. Let’s go to the movies.

For those who are in the unaware, “Suicide Squad” is the third film in the currently being built DC Extended Universe. This began with “Man Of Steel” and continued into “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” which was released earlier this year and since that last one was received with a very mixed and negative opinion, one could only cross their fingers about this one and to briefly recap its premise, here is what the Wiki had to say about the film’s bottom line.

We have arrived at the third installment of the DC Extended Universe and after the division that “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” left us with I can only hope that we shall be placed onto a more proper live action path with this one. Check out the poster, premise and cast and then I will return with a few more thoughts on the matter.

As the memories of the recent “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice” film slowly fade and our nerdy data banks open themselves up to the next installment from Warner Brothers Pictures that continues the build of the DC Extended Universe with “Suicide Squad”. The film features a number of the DC Universes deadliest villains who are teamed together to fight even nastier menaces. I’ve enjoyed the comic series over its many incarnations and only hope we get a better presentation than what we were left with in “BVS”. Earlier today WB release 2 sets of “11” character posters and I love sharing that stuff with you here as a part of our “On Screen” stuff. Check them out.
