So a lot has happened since the teaser trailer for “The New Mutants” first came to our collective attention back in October 2017. Yes my friends, its been that long so let’s recap for any of those who are not up to speed. First up, this film was supposed to come before “Dark Phoenix” to the best of my knowledge but it didn’t. Then Disney would end up purchasing 20th Century Fox Studios (discussed HERE) and that returned the whole group of X-Men, Fantastic Four and assorted other connected characters to the eventual control of Marvel Studio. Insert sigh of relief here. The original trailer for the film left many for want (see for yourself HERE) and it was reported that test screenings did not go well. Then “Dark Phoenix” came out and was a bomb and shortly after that, Disney and Marvel Studios released “Avengers: Endgame” which became the highest grossing movie of all time (discussed HERE). Most of us wondered if this film would see the light of day and well, it looks like it will and a brand-new trailer is here to see some two years after the first one. Let’s look.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been watching the show religiously since it began but I’ve never managed to read the books. It’s one thing that I’m planning to assign myself going forward but right now I will focus on my exhuberence for the final season. This looks great and I think that it’s safe to say that a whole lot of twists and turns will manifest across each episode and leave us shocked. What say you in the readership? Chime in down below and let’s begin counting down to 4/14/19….
The hit HBO Original Series “Game Of Thrones” will return for its 8th and Final Season on April 14th. Just in time for your taxes to be due. With the excitement about the shows return ramping up, HBO has unveiled a number of character/promotional posters that feature the main characters all sitting upon the Iron Throne. I think you know who everyone is by now and if you are a new viewer and do not, you’ll need to buy the DVD’s or subscribe to HBO and catch up to the rest of us. There has been some good stuff for sure. Let’s check out the posters.
Though a lot of us fans out there wish that the X-Men family of characters were back in the hands of Marvel Studios, one has to agree that the people at 20th Century Fox have succeeded without a doubt with the films “Deadpool” and “Logan”. Each of those were rated “R” and pulled out all the stops that one would expect in such a film and heck, even “X-Men: Age Of Apocalypse” was not too bad. The next film in the franchise comes with “The New Mutants” and the first trailer was released a few days ago. Check it out.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’m not sure about how much I like the idea of “The New Mutants” being a bit of a Horror film, I am surprisingly intrigued about their taking this route. I enjoyed the original cast of characters in the comic book that I purchased so very long ago and think that it will be cool to see them fleshed out on the big screen. Fox did a pretty great job with “Logan” and if you have not seen that one yet I say get to purchasing the DVD release, or the Blu-ray since that is what we did. This film comes out in April of 2018 so I am thinking that a longer and more in-depth trailer will be coming eventually. When that happens you can count on my sharing it here. Until then you can let me know what you think about this one down below.
