Space Jam Looks Bad; Free Guy Looks OK

Couple of movie trailers came out in the past day, so I’m here to share! Neither one is particularly exciting. But they’re big movies this summer and I’ll definitely be watching them in theaters. It’s what I do!

First up is Space Jam: A New Legacy. I have slightly high hopes for this film, because I love the original Space Jam. It was a big movie for me as a kid.

But that trailer looks terrible. First off, it looks like a mess. It looks like a vomit of shiny CGI in every direction. And the dialogue is as cringe as it gets. This is just a trailer and I winced through most of it. It’s crazy!

Space Jam: A New Legacy comes out on July 16.

Then there’s Free Guy, a movie with Ryan Reynolds that should be more fun.

This trailer was not as good as its first trailer. This one is focused more on just the wild visuals of the film, which thankfully are not as wild as those in Space Jam. But we’ll see. I have a little bit more faith in Free Guy and I hope it is justly rewarded.

Free Guy comes out on Aug. 13.

One Last Black Widow Trailer!

The Black Widow movie is a month away and Marvel decided to release one final trailer. Just for kicks and giggles, I suppose. Every trailer has been fun and the movie looks very exciting. Here’s hoping the movie has been worth the wait!

Black Widow, new Black Widow, Taskmaster, Red Guardian; there’s a lot to love about this movie. I’m hoping for a big, exciting spy/action thriller. And I know Marvel and Scarlett Johansson can pull it off. Just gotta wait another month!

Black Widow comes to theaters and Disney+ on July 9.

You So Silly, America

Well this looks neat. A new Netflix animated comedy movie about the “true” story of America’s birth. It’s America: The Motion Picture and it looks both silly and great.

Made by the guy behind Archer, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller on as producers, this looks like a hoot and a half! We’ve got Channing Tatum as George Washington, Olivia Munn as Thomas Edison, and this looks to be a crazy romp of sarcastic patriotism. I hope we can still laugh about such a thing.

America: The Motion Picture arrives on Netflix on June 30.

Let’s All Rag on the DCEU Some More!

The schadenfreude of DC’s failed cinematic universe will never not be funny. They tried, they took some big swings, they drummed up a lot of controversy, but in the end their epics plans fell flat on their face. Honestly, it’s just really funny.

Isn’t that right, Honest Trailers?

And so good times were had by all. A good chuckle to start our Tuesday. I’m still not entirely convinced that Flash movie is actually going to happen and come out. I think they’re even filming it now. And I do still rather like Aquaman and Shazam. So at least there’s that.

A Big Pile of Movie Reviews

I love movie reviews! They’re fun, they’re short and they’re easy to share. And over the past few days, a whole pile of new movie reviews arrived and I’m going to share them all at once. Because that is the best strategy.

First up is Werewolves Within, the new werewolf thriller comedy!

This one looks pretty darn funny! It starts Sam Richardson, who is everywhere these days, and Milana Vayntrub, who was going to be the live action Squirrel Girl at one point! So this looks killer. Werewolves Within arrives in theaters on June 25.

Next up is Last Night in Soho, the new Edgar Wright film!

Edgar Wright doing dark and suspense? Sounds doable! I’m a huge Edgar Wright fan, though I’ll admit that I didn’t really like Baby Driver all that much. That’s on me. Last Night in Soho stars Thomasin MacKenzie, who was also in Jo Jo Rabbit, so that’s neat! Plus Ana Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith from Doctor Who and Jessie Mei Li, who I recently saw starring in Shadow and Bone on Netflix. Neat cast! Last Night in Soho comes out in October.

Then we have a trailer for Gunpowder Milkshake, a movie I didn’t really know existed. Seems to be a lady version of John Wick, to an extent.

And it looks great to me! Who doesn’t love Karen Gillen? Plus Lena Headey and Chloe Coleman, the little girl from My Spy? I love the whole cast, from the looks of it, and I love me some action. The title is also pretty fun. Gunpowder Milkshake will come out on July 14.

Next, brand new just this morning, is a trailer for Jungle Cruise! It’s that Disney ride film starring the Rock and Emily Blunt that was supposed to come out last year.

And it still looks fun. An action film set on a boat in a jungle starring the Rock? Seems simple enough. I’m in. Jungle Cruise comes out on July 30.

Lastly we have a new Chris Pratt action film The Tomorrow War.

This looks to be a solid, enjoyable Chris Pratt action film! This might be one of those movies that has too many plot holes, or twists that we can already predict, but we’ll have to watch it to find out! The Tomorrow War comes to Amazon Prime on July 2.

And those are the movies that put out new trailers this week. Fun for us all.
