Trailer Dump: Dark Phoenix, Robin Hood & Creed II

We have a load of great new trailers to dump on you today, from the new X-Men movie to Netflix’s disturbing Apostle. So if you’ve been waiting to catch up on the latest trailers, have no fear. For we are here. Geekvault’s trailer dump. So just sit back, relax and enjoy. There’s a lot here to enjoy, so get stuck in. Tell us in the comments which one was your favourite.

Robin Hood

This has been my favourite trailer for the new Robin Hood film yet. The aesthetic is really enjoyable, with that modern medieval twist, like A Knight’s Tale or King Arthur. Let’s hope it’s more like the former than the latter, which became probably the worst Guy Ritchie film. Unfortunately the best I can say about this film at the moment is about  the aesthetic, and that it looks like a bit of fun. Oh well, will you be watching this?

Dark Phoenix

The first trailer for the new X-Men movie, Dark Phoenix has surfaced and it looks pretty good. Jean Grey is struggling to contain the power of the titular Dark Phoenix power and the team must help save her from doing something she regrets. McAvoy and Fassbender are back as Xavier and Magneto for possibly the last time. Though we wished they had greyed up Magnetos hair a bit. We’ve enjoyed most if not all X-Men films thus far, hopefully this will make up for Last Stand.

Galveston

This looks like it may be a surprise hit, with powerful performances that are already conveyed through this short trailer. Ben Foster is set up and Elle Fanning is caught right in the middle of it, forcing them to both go on the run with twists and turns in the middle. This is one we will definitely be checking out.

Creed II

Michael B. Jordan returns as Adonis Creed, with Sylvetser Stallone in tow returning as Rocky. For a continuation in what has become a truly iconic franchise. This time it’s about more than just honour, it’s revenge. As Creed fights to finally overcome the death of his father. Dolph Lundgren returns as Ivan Drago with his son Victor, played by Florian Munteanu, who looks absolutely beastly. We can’t wait to watch this one.

Daredevil Season Three

This small teaser trailer for the return of Daredevil in season three has Wilson Fisk, Kingpin appear in his iconic white suit. Though no purple cravats just yet. Fans of the new Spider-Man PS4 game may even think it’s reminiscent of Mr. Negative. We also see the symbolic death of Matt Murdock, as he struggles to deal with a dual identity and is overcome by the Daredevil. Let’s hope this is as good as if not even better than season 2.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

With each trailer we get more and more excited for the Fantastic Beasts sequel. The first was a surprisingly great addition to the Harry Potter lore and this next one looks even better. Beware of spoilers in this trailer though as we finally learn the identity of the girl who has been running around with Ezra Miller’s Credence. Can’t wait to see Jude Law as a young Dumbledore too. We’re already booking tickets. Don’t forget to buy your wizarding supplies here.

Bumblebee

When they announced that there would be a new Transformers spinoff about the origins of Bumblebee, everyone asked who wants this? But it maybe actually looks, kind of, good? At least the best in a while, which wouldn’t certainly be hard to achieve. This in part stems from the fact that these Transformers actually look like transformers, with their blocky colourful bodies. Let’s just hope you’ll be able to see what’s happening in the fight scenes too.

Captain Marvel

The first trailer for Captain Marvel was released and it looks epic. With the success of this film combined with Wonder Woman’s we will hopefully have an influx of new super-heroine films. This looks like it will be an above average Marvel movie. Do you think this is the start of a secret invasion? Has Nick Fury been a Skrull all along? Will Captain Marvel be a Skrull? Either way who doesn’t want to see an old lady get punched? You can even get your own Marvel gear here.

Apostle

This is one nightmarish looking movie, and we appreciate Netflix for the broad scope they’re employing. From Gareth Evans who brought the world two excellent movies of The Raid, comes something far different. It looks like the Wicker Man jacked up on heroin, meets the demon spawn of Saw and Silent Hill. We can’t wait to see how twisted this turns out.

Trailer Dump: Star Wars Resistance, Iron Fist & Maniac

Trailer Dump: Star Wars Resistance, Iron Fist & Maniac

Welcome back to another steaming trailer dump, featuring shows and movies from Disney’s Star Wars Resistance to Netflix’s Maniac. If you’ve missed out and let any new trailer’s slip you by, now is a time to catch up with some of the most prevalent future releases. Without further ado, dig in and hopefully find something to get excited about! First up…

Star Wars Resistance

The newest Star Wars show has released it’s first trailer, and this one is definitely geared more toward a younger audience. Not massive fans of the art style. This doesn’t look quite in the same vein as Clone Wars and Rebels. This is one for the kids to enjoy and perhaps fans of the sequel trilogy will to as it features the return of fan favourite Poe (Oscar Isaac), and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), set before the events of The Force Awakens. Find more Star Wars stuff here.

Iron Fist Season 2

After a lacklustre first season and disappointing team up with The Defenders, Danny Rand (Finn Jones) returns as the Iron Fist. Now brother fights brother, as Davos believes he is worthy of the Iron Fist and becomes the Steel Serpent to fight Danny. This trailer also shows us a first look at the Daughters of the Dragon. Hopefully this season will do better. You can get your Marvel products here.

Widows

Steve McQueen’s new film looks like it’s going to be a hit. A surprising twist on your typical heist movie as the widows of murdered crooks must now take it upon themselves to help their families survive. With big money stars including Liam Neeson, Jon Bernthal, Viola Davis and Michelle Rodriguez. Written by award winning author Gillian Flynn, known for Gone Girl. This is quickly becoming a highly anticipated movie.

Next Gen

Netflix continues to pump out quality content, and their new animated movie Next Gen looks like no exception. On par with the best of Disney Pixar and Dreamworks, it looks like there is new competition in town. Set in the near future where robots are aplenty, a young girl is dismayed with the world they live in until she makes friends with an experimental robot. It’s easy to make comparisons with other films like Big Hero 6, but this looks very heartfelt and great family fun. Hopefully we can get more animated feature films from Netflix. Featuring the voices of John Krasinski, Michael Peña and Constance Wu.

Arizona

The 2009 housing crisis hurt a lot of people but apparently hit Sonny (McBride) the hardest, an incompetent criminal out for revenge, takes Realtor Cassie (DeWitt) hostage as he tries to get his own payback. This looks like a fun twisted dark comedy, where things can’t help but take a turn for the worse. Coming out August 24th.

Green Book

This powerful trailer shows the unlikely true friendship of bouncer Tony Lip (Mortensen) and pianist Dr. Don Shirley (Ali) as they navigate through the prevalent racism of America using the Green Book. There is a lot of talent amongst the main two actors alone and the energy they radiate just throughout this trailer gets us excited for the movie. A story from 1962 that seems relevant today. Will you be watching?

Climax

This dance party gets deranged in the bizarre trailer for Climax which is Step Up on drugs. This looks like it will be a visual feast and highly entertaining, though perhaps not for every average move goer. This comes from Gaspar Noé, known for the cult classic movie trips, Irreversible and Enter The Void. This looks like another entry into his mind bending filmography. We’ll have to wait and see what this movie has in store for us.

Slaughterhouse Rulez

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost team up for this dark comedy that is St. Trinian’s meets Attack the Block. Releasing on Halloween in the UK, it also stars Asa Butterfield and Michael Sheen. When a school sells off it’s land to an oil fracking company they accidentally unleash demons on their students. It looks like it’s going to be a fun romp.

Maniac

This is another superb looking mind melting movie from Netflix. Starring Jonah Hill, Emma Stone and Justin Theroux as they partake in an experimental, psychological drug trial. “Pain can be destroyed.” This is my kind of movie spanning multiple genres under one funky seventies sci-fi roof, as Stone and Hill explore each other’s minds. Netflix looks like they will be stepping up the stakes set out by the Norwegian series of the same name. This short series looks like it can do great things for both Stone’s and Hill’s career, as it’s unlike anything they’ve previously done. Warning! You may get serious Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind vibes.

Trailer Dump: Godzilla, Superheroes & Comic-Con

Trailer Dump: Godzilla, Superheroes & Comic-Con

In case you’ve been living under a rock we’ve got a whole treat-load of trailers for you. From Comic-Con we have M. Night Shyamalan’s probably most anticipated movie of his career, the sequel to Unbreakable. The new Fantastic Beasts trailer. The full trailer for the epic new Godzilla! DC’s new line up of movies and TV Shows. The new series from the creator of The Simpsons and Futurama. As well as the excellent new Image Comics TV Series from Marvels the Russo Brother’s, directors of Infinity War and Civil War.

Glass

This sequel was eighteen years in the making. Starring the returns of Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson from Unbreakable, including James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy from the surprise sequel Split. Clearly there is a lot to unpack here with this realistic take on the superhero genre, as no one believes them. This may be M. Night Shyamalans’ most anticipated movie of all time.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, this may be what you’re most excited for! Eddie Redmayne returns as Newt Scamander, with friends in tow for this magical mystery movie, with all new and fantastic beasts. The brilliant casting of Jude Law as a young Dumbledore means this is one to keep your eye on and save a date in the calendar for. Treat yourself to a little magical joy here!

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

This looks EPIC! If you don’t like giant monster movies, then you don’t have much business seeing this movie but… if you love them then this is what you’ve been waiting for! Destruction on a scale like we’ve never seen before! Godzilla! Mothra! Rodan! King Ghidorah! The beasts have been awoken to fight the virus that is humanity. The first Godzilla may have been a little disappointing but Kong was fun (they share the same universe) and this looks the best yet.

SHAZAM!

What if a child could be Superman? Is the basic premise for the DC hero Shazam (or Captain Marvel depending). Now we have a first look at this brand new DC movie. Billy Batson is given the powers of SHAZAM by a great old wizard. This certainly looks different to anything we’ve seen before from DC and even really a big superhero movie. We aren’t too sure what to think yet, but it looks like fun for the family. What do you think?

Aquaman

A man trapped between land and sea. We finally have our first trailer for Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa! A lot of people have been eagerly awaiting this. Now it’s here what are your thoughts? Aquaman was possibly the best part of Justice League but that’s not saying much and unfortunately at this time it doesn’t look much better.  We were hoping for something more similar to Wonder Woman and Man of Steel. We can only wait and see now. Black Manta does look cool though. Now you can own your very own Aquaman here!

Supergirl Season 4

Supergirl returns in this all new trailer for season 4. The woman of steel has had a strong run of series so far and hopefully they can keep it going and avoid any kryptonite. Have you been keeping up to date with this super series? Are you looking forward to what comes next?

Arrow Season 7

Arrow has gone through a lot of tough times recently, not managing to give the fans what they want. Are you still watching? Either way, something must be working right for them as they are making their seventh season and if nothing else you have to appreciate and be thankful for the universe they helped create. If you are a fan that is.

The Flash Season 5

The Flash is back and just in time. Arguably the best of DC’s TV shows, last season left us with a lot of questions even after Barry and team Flash beat the Thinker. Mostly about the new member of the team who showed up throughout the last season before revealing herself to the team. We will finally be able to see get his Flash ring too! ARe you excited for this new season? Pick up your own Flash here, quick before they’re gone in a hurry.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 4

The Legends of Tomorrow today! It seems the legends haven’t caught the eye of many in the general public, but it is a great bit of fun to watch and they have their own core group of followers. Now they have returned for a fourth season to meddle with time once more. Find more legendary DC products here!

Disenchantment

The new series from Matt Groening, creator of the Simpsons and Futurama, Disenchantment! His very distinctive style is now a part of the fantasy genre, where misadventure awaits! Coming straight to Netflix so you can binge watch at your leisure. Groening hasn’t released anything new since Futurama first released in 1999, will this be another hit?

Deadly Class

This great new looking series comes from SyFy, who have been on a roll recently after once being considered a joke for their original content. Deadly Class, adapted from the hit comic book series, about a secret underground school of deadly assassins. The comic is well worth checking out and this looks to be following suit. Will you be checking it out?

Anyway, we hope you enjoyed these trailers, tell us, which one was your favourite? What are you looking forward to most?

Trailer Dump: A Look at Upcoming Movie’s & TV Shows

young justice trailer dump

Trailer Dump: A Look at Upcoming Movie’s & TV Shows

A lot of trailer’s have dropped in recent days, thanks in part to the San-Diego Comic-Con, which has released a lot of awesome stuff. So much awesome stuff you might not have been able to catch it all. We know how difficult it can be staying on top of all the new movies and TV shows coming out. You are bound to let a few trailers and announcements go by missed. We’re here to help you catch up with our trailer dump. A wide variety of all the new trailer’s, so check them out below and let us know what you think in the comments.

The Walking Dead Season 9

It’s no longer just about surviving zombies in this trailer for the latest series about The Walking Dead. Now they have to survive each other as they try and climb their way back to a civil way of living. The five minutes of footage gives you plenty to look at and guess about. Including what appears to be our first look at the Whisperers.

Young Justice: Outsiders

Star Wars The Clone Wars isn’t the only animated show being revived this year. So too returns the beloved DC’s Young Justice. We now have five minutes of footage to share with everyone. The trailer mainly recaps what happened in the last season and where we left off with our heroes before showing the state of the world they now live in. We can’t wait to see this, streaming on DC Universe.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Reach Monarch is the first sneak peek at the new Godzilla: King of the Monsters movie, starring Millie Bobby Brown of Stranger Things fame. Monarch is the company that ties the two franchises, Godzilla and King Kong, together. Godzilla will face off against Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah, undoubtedly King Kong will be teased at some point for the King Kong vs. Godzilla movie. You may notice that her bandages have a loose grip on existence.

Nightflyers

Nightflyers is the new TV show from the brilliant mind of George R.R. Martin, creator of Game of Thrones. This series is drastically different from what we’re used to with Martin, being it is the sci-fi genre and not fantasy. Nightflyers is brought to you by none other than SyFy and Netflix, who did a great job with Happy! Nightflyers however looks more like a mind-bending horror series akin to Event Horizon.

A Prayer Before Dawn

This fantastic trailer is about the true to life story of a British prisoner, Billy Moore, in Thailand who has to box his way out of the hellhole he found himself in. This looks like a star turn for the young talent Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders/Green Room/Black Mirror) who plays Moore. It looks brutal, gritty, gripping and true to life. A Prayer Before Dawn is based on the autobiography of the same name.

Doctor Who Season 11

The new Doctor Who trailer is finally here after the controversial casting of Jodie Whittaker, as the first ever female Doctor. “New faces, new worlds, new times.” Is the perfect way to describe any season of Doctor Who, and now we are on for a new adventure with Whittaker in the titular role.

Titans

If Young Justice wasn’t enough to sate your appetite of Teen Titans action, here is the first trailer for Titans. A surprisingly NSFW trailer. It has conflicting tones with that of being an overtly childlike superhero show, in terms of production and story, mixed with what seems to be an unnecessary amount of grit and angst. We have yet to see if any of it pays off. Robin however looks to be committing Batman’s cardinal sin, the no kill rule, and that is a no go for upholding character representation.

Overlord

This crazy stupid fun looking trailer for Overlord, is WW2 with zombies. Basically COD zombie mode, it was rumoured to be the new Cloverfield sequel for a long time. Many people believe that is now not the case, however only time will tell if they tie this into the franchise. Which is not outside the realm of possibility. Especially if they are using Die Glocke (There is a lot of bells ringing) which could show all kinds of crazy dimensions and futures.

Anyway, we hope you enjoyed these trailers, tell us which one was your favourite? What are you looking forward to most?
