Pixar is Gonna Do Another One With Turning Red

Pixar has been hot and cold for me over the past few years. I didn’t care for Soul. I loved Luca. Suffice to say, they are in a different mode these days than their all-time classics. So let’s see how they do next year with Turning Red.

Looks fine to me! A young girl dealing with anxiety turns into a giant red panda, Incredible Hulk style. Sounds like a solid metaphor for puberty and whatnot.

Turning Red is scheduled to arrive in theaters in March 2022.

Welp, the Snake Eyes Movie Has Won Me Over

Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins is only a couple of weeks away and it has won me over. I’ve been relatively skeptical about this film for a while, not entirely sure why the G.I. Joe franchise needed a spin-off out of the blue like this. But then the people at Paramount went and made a commercial that speaks to my very soul.

Just wonderful. Leaning into the 1980s G.I. Joe cartoon and action figures for your self-referential promotional material? Just hook it to my veins!

Snake Eyes comes to theaters on July 23 and you best believe I’m gonna see it!

Here Comes the Next Disney Animated Movie

Tonight I’m going to see a new Disney marvel superhero movie! Got my ticket for Black Widow already! But also today, we’ve got the first teaser trailer for Encanto, the next Disney animated movie. Looks pretty fun.

I’m very much enjoying most Disney animated movies these days. A lot more than Pixar movies. So here’s hoping! And this one also appears to be about superheroes? That’s always fun.

Encanto comes out in November.

Top 6 Russian Superheroes (Ready for a Black Widow Sequel)

The Black Widow movie is coming out this weekend and I’ve already got my ticket for the early showing! I can’t wait for a new Marvel movie after this two year absence. What can I say? I’m an unapologetic Marvel fan boy! I’m excited for the film and very excited for what it might introduce going forward.

We may get a Black Widow 2 one of these days.

So many Black Widows!

I haven’t seen the movie yet, but everybody seems pretty convinced that Florence Pugh’s Yelena Belova will take over as the MCU’s new Black Widow. Sounds like a good idea to me. There are a ton of different directions to take such a character, with the most obvious being a sequel that sees Yelena go off on her own Russian adventures. If that’s the case, Marvel is going to need to dust off some of their classic Russian superheroes and villains to make a showing. The Black Widow movie will introduce Red Guardian, so what about the rest?

Join me after the jump for an enclave of Marvel’s Russian characters who are just waiting for a sequel opportunity!

How About Another Animated Mortal Kombat?

I never got around to watching Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge. It’s on my hard drive somewhere and perhaps I will one of these days. I definitely should watch it ahead of its brand new sequel. Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms.

I definitely want to watch this new film because it has my favorite character, Smoke. That’s all it takes for me to watch. The animation looks really good in these movies. And it’s probably going to be far more accurate to the games and lore than the live action movie we got only a couple of months ago.

HBO should just make an ongoing Mortal Kombat cartoon series. Netflix got a lot of traction out of that awesome Castlevania show. A Mortal Kombat show could run for plenty of seasons, with so many characters. Think about it, HBO Max! You need more foundational shows!

Battle of the Realms comes out on Aug. 31.
