Over the past couple of weeks here in my Media Metropolis, I can tell you that the summer heat has been sweltering and the humidity is enough to make you stay in the house with a giant glass of iced tea in front of your air conditioner while watching your favorite programming on whatever streaming service you prefer. It’s also hot enough to set up a base camp at the nearest beach but I should warn you that you just might have a little company if you do that. Sure, “Shark Week” might have ended a couple of weeks ago but now it’s time for the Carcharodon megalodon to show you he means business. Warner Brothers Pictures “The Meg” opens today in theaters everywhere. Here’s the theatrical poster, some premise and the casting.
The Premise: Five years ago, expert sea diver and Naval Captain Jonas Taylor encountered an unknown danger in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew. Though the tragic incident earned him a dishonorable discharge, what ultimately cost him his career, his marriage and any semblance of honor was his unsupported and incredulous claims of what caused it – an attack on his vessel by a mammoth, 70-foot sea creature, believed to be extinct for more than a million years. But when a submersible lies sunk and disabled at the bottom of the ocean – carrying his ex-wife among the team onboard – he is the one who gets the call. Whether a shot at redemption or a suicide mission, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life and the lives of everyone trapped below on a single question: Could the Carcharodon Megalodon – the largest marine predator that ever existed – still be alive … and on the hunt?

Here’s another trailer that the fans were looking forward to with Warner Brothers Pictures “Aquaman”. The film opens in December of this year and continues the building of the DC Extended Universe. Let’s take a look.
While the film might follow the actions seen in the upcoming “Aquaman” film, today during the Comic Con International: San Diego we got the first teaser trailer from Warner Brothers Pictures “SHAZAM”. The film continues the expansion of the DC Extended Universe so let’s take a look down below.
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (thanks Wiki).

The trailers keep on coming as Comic Con International: San Diego gets deep into its third day. Since we are on the East Coast there is still a lot of time over there to get reports from and a trailer that we were very much looking forward too has arrived. Behold the first full trailer for “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” which comes care of Warner Brothers Pictures.
Premise: The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species – thought to be mere myths – rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance (thanks Wiki)

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Okay. I have to admit that this is kind of what I was expected from a first look trailer and while we see lots of destruction and fleeing humanity, we barely see all of the legendary Kaiju outside of the Big G himself. I’ve been a fan of Godzilla for as long as I can remember and can say that I’ve seen almost all of his films. I am very hopeful for this sequel and that it gives us more Godzilla than the first one did. They paid too much mind to human interaction and if you are like me, you probably are saying less of that and more “Let Them Fight”. Am I right? Please tell me if you disagree and before I go let me remind you that the Netflix service now has “Godzilla: City On The Edge Of Battle” available to stream. I mentioned this news HERE the other day but we move so fast online nowadays you might have missed it. Let me know what you think of this trailer down below in the comments section.
