With all of the Marvel Studios features coming care of Disney and the DCEU being delivered by Warner Brothers Picturses, its high time for the world of Valiant Entertainment (aka Valiant Comics) to make their big screen debut. The first in a hopeful line of connected films comes with the Sony Pictures feature “Bloodshot”. I’ve embedded the trailer, the premise and the casting down below for your consumption.
The Synopsis: After he and his wife are murdered, Marine Ray Garrison is resurrected by a secret team of scientists. Enhanced with nanotechnology, he becomes a superhuman, biotech killing machine – Bloodshot. As Ray first trains with fellow super-soldiers, he cannot recall anything from his former life. But when his memories flood back and he remembers the man that killed both him and his wife, he breaks out of the facility hellbent on revenge, only to discover that there’s more to the conspiracy than he originally thought.

Are you a fan of the mythology that comes to us care of “Worlds of Warcraft” and its MMORPG? If you are then you should be excited because the film that brings us deeply into this mythical world is opening up today. Check out the official theatrical poster, plot and cast and then I’ll return with some additional thoughts. If you didn’t see the trailer for said film, please click HERE first to be on top of things.
Azeroth stands on the brink of war as its civilization, led by the humans, faces a fearsome race of invaders: orc warriors fleeing their dying world of Draenor to find their place in another. As a gateway known as the Dark Portal opens to connect the two worlds, the humans face destruction while the orcs face extinction. Anduin Lothar (Travis Fimmel), leader of the humans, and Durotan (Toby Kebbell), leader of the orcs, are then sent on a collision course that will decide the fate of their families, their people and their home.

I’ll start by saying that I know NOTHING about the whole “World Of Warcraft” franchise property even though quite a few friends of mine really enjoy it and have immersed themselves in the game quite deeply over the years. Sometimes its been hard to catch up with them based on their focus on the worlds found within the game. Hey, different strokes for different folks right? Now while this has eluded me as an interest there is a movie coming out that should appease all fans of this franchise and the trailer was recently posted and with that in mind I am sharing it with you below. Check it out.

Well. We’ve arrived at the opening day of the now very much maligned “Fantastic Four” film which is a complete reboot by director Josh Trank. It takes place outside of the popular Marvel Cinematic Universe since the property is under the control of 20th Century Fox based on a deal made so many years ago. The second trailer was shared HERE along with some additional posters for those interested in checking out it and down below you’ll find the Official Poster, premise and casting. Enjoy if you plan on going.
Considering my overall acrimony about the upcoming “Fantastic Four” film, I’m back again to share another look at what is heading our way with this film. I didn’t like what I saw in the clip seen HERE so let’s see if the second go-round makes me feel any different. As most know by now, this is NOT a proper Marvel Studios film and is another attempt to dilute the “Fantastic Four” property by 20th Century Fox. To keep your interest and website visiting time a little longer, I’ve added some of the promotional posters that I found as well. Here goes nothing….
The Premise: Four young outsiders teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe which alters their physical form in shocking ways. The four must learn to harness their new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.
Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic
Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/Human Torch
Kate Mara as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman
Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing
Toby Kebbell as Victor Von Doom/Doctor Doom
Tim Blake Nelson as Harvey Allen
Reg E. Cathey as Franklin Storm
Additionally, Dan Castellaneta portrays Mr. Kenny, Reed’s teacher and Tim Heidecker appears as Mr. Richards, Reed’s stepfather. Chet Hanks, son of actor Tom Hanks, has a minor appearance as Jimmy Grimm, Ben’s older brother.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you can see this does look to be action packed but I am thinking there is a lot of build up time to be found in the film. They’ve made a number of changes to the canon of the original First Family to reflect modern times and I didn’t feel this was necessary. The Four themselves look “okay” at best with The Thing being a bit more unnerving in presentation. It’s hard to compare him as to how Michael Chiklis did him but I think I would have liked a closer to the original look than what we go and then there is Doctor Doom. For most comic book fans Doctor Doom is one of the deadliest super-villains in the Marvel Comics canon and the trailer leads me to think he gets his powers along with the other four. Much like that first go-round they did in that film from 2005. Way to be original Fox. Anyway, this one opens in August and I am thinking that I will be passing on it. For years I loved the FF comic book and this presentation of them look more “meh” than “hooray”. What about you readers? Are you seeing this one based on the second trailer? Chime in down below.
