I’m a huge book dork, it’s a fact that I’ve learned to live with over the years. And one of the greatest series of my youth was the tale of the boy Garion and his quest to find the Orb of Aldur. Yes, my friends, I speak of “The Belgariad” series. Consisting of five books, it details the trials and growth of our budding young hero and his companions as they seek this holy relic that will balance the scales between good and evil. These days, the writing level would most likely be considered young adult but this story transcends such petty things. It inspires and teaches, allowing the reader to watch as our young boy grows into more than a man, he becomes a hero.
I’ve long wished this series would be given the Lord of the Rings/Game of Thrones treatment, that someone would create a visual representation worthy of this epic tale. But alas, it has yet to happen. But my life was improved ever so slightly by this fan-made trailer, which you can watch below. Made from pieces of other films and shows, it is perhaps the best representation I have seen to date. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did/do. With all of the original content coming out on Netflix, do you think they could find the time to maybe just make me a little thirteen episode season for each book? I’d really appreciate it, if so.
Well, that was fast. Warner Bros. Pictures has planned to unveil the long-awaited teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Monday following the premiere of 15 minutes of footage on select IMAX screens across the country. Then the trailer would debut online and be attached to screenings of Mad Max: Fury Road.
That was the initial plan anyway, but following the unanticipated leak of the trailer yesterday, the studio has apparently (and wisely) decided to grant it an official release a few days ahead of schedule.
You can check it out in glorious high-definition here below.
Marvel Studios has released the first full theatrical trailer for their latest solo comic book adventure, Ant-Man. You can check it out here below.
The teaser trailer, released in January, leaned heavily on setting up the story basics. The latest delivers on the action and visual effects fronts and then some, with Paul Rudd looking mighty badass as the titular incredible shrinking superhero as he encounters insects of an unusual size and takes on Corey Stoll‘s villainous Darren Cross when the latter suits up as Yellowjacket. We also get a sense of the on-screen relationship between Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and the stakes involved in their recruiting thief Scott Lang (Rudd) for their battle against Cross.
Earlier we saw Kit Harington and his abs in the first image from Pompeii, the upcoming disaster epic from director Paul W.S. Anderson. Now comes the first teaser trailer for the movie.
In the movie, Harington plays a slave on his way to Naples in the days leading up to that fateful day when Mt. Vesuvius erupts. But as the devastating natural disaster unfolds, he works his way back into the city of Pompeii in a desperate attempt find his true love (Emily Browning) and save his best friend, a gladiator who’s trapped.
You can check out the teaser trailer for Pompeii below.
The first trailer for Paramount/MGM’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation, the long-mooted sequel to 2009’s, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, has been released today and you can check it out here below.
While The Rise of Cobra didn’t bring in the beaucoup bucks the Transformers franchise has been reaping, that didn’t stop the studio from putting a sequel into production. Stephen Sommers, the director of Rise, was not offered the job of helming Retaliation. Instead the reigns were handed to Jon M. Chu, whose previous credits include…Step Up 2 the Streets, Step Up 3D, and the recent concert movie Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote the screenplay.
