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.
There’s going to be an Invincible cartoon, based on Robert Kirkman’s popular comic book series! We knew that already, but now we’ve got a full-sized trailer! And a premiere date!
Looks great! I’m about a third of the way through reading Invincible, and it’s really good. I splurged on all three mega compendiums last summer and need to start the second one. Invincible is good stuff. It’s really just a big, fun, casually-paced superhero tale with a ton of characters and a ton of world-building. The cartoon is barely going to scratch the surface of the beginning of the story, but hopefully it gets as many seasons as The Walking Dead!
Invincible arrives on Amazon Prime Video on March 26.
The comic book Invincible is getting a cartoon next year on Amazon Prime. And it looks pretty good!
I only recently just started reading Invincible the comic. I bought all three giant compendiums and have completed the first one. It’s a fun comic. So far, it’s not groundbreaking or truly amazing. It’s just a solid, enjoyable, well-crafted superhero adventure. Should make for a great cartoon!
Nick Frost and Simon Pegg have a new, supernatural TV show coming to Amazon Prime at the end of October. It’s called Truth Seekers and it looks like it could be pretty cool.
I think Frost and Pegg wrote this series, or at least created it. But I also think, based on the trailer, that it’s only really going to feature Simon Pegg. This is definitely not a show starring the two of them as a team. All the marketing seems to think it’s a Pegg/Frost adventure…but you ain’t fooling me!
Still, looks good and I’m always up for good new shows. Truth Seekers comes to Amazon Prime on Oct. 30.
I’m currently in the middle of watching the second season of The Umbrella Academy and it’s great! Very much enjoying this show. So how about the other really cool, stylish, live action streaming show based on a comic book? The Boys returns to Amazon Prime on Sept. 4!
Looks great! Obviously, The Boys has gone way off the rails from the comic, and I am perfectly fine with that. The Boys TV show is telling it’s own story. I’m not so beholden to the source material that I’m going to be bitter. The show is a fun use of the characters and concept.
