It was back in October when we last discussed the TNT original series “Snowpiercer” and considering how the days bleed into each other right now, it feels like a forever ago. As I always defer to earlier posts for the completists, those who missed the teaser trailer can click HERE before continuing on to the brand new Official Trailer for the show’s second season. Enjoy.

The Premise: Snowpiercer is set in 2021, seven years after the world becomes a frozen wasteland, and follows the remnants of humanity who took shelter on a perpetually moving luxury train built by billionaire Wilford, consisting of 1001 carriages that circles the globe 2.7 times per year. The constant motion of the train provides energy and prevents the passengers from freezing as well. Since the catastrophe, the train’s population has become rigidly separated by class, caught up in a revolutionary struggle against the strictly imposed social hierarchy and unbalanced allocation of limited resources. The show explores issues of class warfare, social injustice, and the politics of survival.

Though there aren’t any conventions to attend because of the pandemic and this applies for the concerts as well since large-scale gatherings are forbidden, I am glad that we still have a whole of lot comic book and film presentations to share with you in the readership as we continue to ride this terrible storm from the safety of our homes. You might have heard that TNT has given the show “Snowpiercer” a second season and while we’ve months to go before it airs there is a teaser trailer to enjoy below. Check it out.

Opening Today: “Pixels” (2015)

Though I had stated that this is not generally the kind of movie broadcast that I do, having posted the First and Second trailer, I might as well showcase the film opening date as well. I enjoyed the trailers and felt it was a less serious take on “Independence Day” if I could draw a quick comparison. As an old school Colecovision and Atari 2600 dude I have to admit I was chuckling when I saw the clips. The movie “Pixels” opens up today in theaters almost everywhere. Check out the poster, premise and the cast below. I will return with some thoughts of my own afterward.

Poster - Pixels - 2015

The Plot:
In 1982, in the hopes of establishing peaceful communication with extraterrestrial life, NASA launches a time capsule into outer space containing images and footage of Earth life and culture. However, the aliens misinterpret enclosed video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war. They attack the Earth using the games as models for their various assaults including Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Centipede, Space Invaders, Arkanoid and Tetris. Their technology creates voxels that change form and are capable of turning any form of matter into more of itself. President Will Cooper calls upon his best friend since childhood, former video game professional Sam Brenner, who is now a home theater installer and had a previous relationship with Cooper’s wife. To combat the video game characters, Brenner decides to lead a team of retrogamers Eddie Plant and Ludlow Lamonsoff to defeat the aliens with technology similar to those used in games.

Sony Pictures Presents: “Pixels” Official Trailer 2

It was a couple of months ago when I shared the first trailer for Sony Pictures “Pixels” and while comedies aren’t something that I normally plan on posting here on PiercingMetal, it had that 1980’s video game nostalgia which won me over. If you missed that first trailer post, you can click HERE to see it and then move onto the next level for the second trailer. I’ve added something of a bonus for you as well with some promotional posters that were a hoot. Enjoy.

Sony Pictures Presents: “Pixels” Official Trailer

Now despite having posted movie items for a few years now over on my no longer in existence “PiercingMetal Musings Blog” (I merged that with the core website in a narrative found HERE), I am still getting used to serving up this kind of narrative on the PiercingMetal site. I’ve aimed at keeping to superhero, science fiction and monster movies but this one seemed to touch a little on each topic and be a comedy as well. Maybe some of our readers who are gamers will find this to their liking, so let’s see what Sony Pictures “Pixels” is all about care of their first trailer.
