Sorry for posting all these videos, henchies. I’ve been busy at work with some fun stuff and just haven’t had much time to focus on this blog. And it helps that we’ve got some good videos lately, like these trailers for upcoming Amazon Prime TV Shows!
Like the second season of The Tick!
First season was amazing, can’t wait for more! Wonderful and hilarious adaptation of The Tick! The new season arrives on April 5.
Next up is Good Omens!
I read that book years ago and enjoyed it. So here’s hoping this is going to be a great show! It’s got a good cast, it’s got Neil Gaiman’s good will; I have high hopes. Good Omens debuts on May 31.
There have been a ton more trailers coming out of Comic-Con, and I’m too lazy to make individual posts for each of them — don’t judge me, it’s the weekend. And speaking of a lazy Sunday, how about we just run them down, shall we?
I love The Boys comic from Garth Ennis. It was pretty great from start to finish. As always, I’m a little worried about a TV show adaptation, but this trailer looks fine so far. Quality comic book show to make.
I read Good Omens a couple years ago, when I was reading Neil Gaiman novels. It’s good! And the trailer looks good too! So here’s hoping it’s another success.
Ugh. The trailers for this movie keep focusing on the wrong things. I want to see more of these giant, mobile villages and cities. That’s such a unique idea, and the trailers make them look amazing!
But no, the trailer focuses on all the usual Young Adult adaptation ideas. We’ve got a magical MacGuffin amulet, a Terminator-like monster, mom secrets, and more. Then the protagonist is described as “very, very rare”. Seriously? The badass female antagonist who is both “beautiful” and yet has “jagged edges”? Isn’t that every single badass female YA protagonist?
I’m still gonna see it.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power
This looks amazing! As I’ve mentioned before, I rather enjoy all these serious reboots of classic 1980s cartoons. There are maybe too many of them, but I’m not going to complain about nostalgia-based entertainment. I’m as much a sucker for that as anybody. And I love how this looks!
