The best, easiest way for me to share the geeky joy coming out of Comic-Con is with movie trailers. They’re easy to post on this blog and require little work on my part. So how about we check out a bunch of them?
First up is the trailer for the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which looks insane and potentially awesome! I was a big Kevin Smith fan back in the day, during his good movie years. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was the first movie I went to see when I moved away to college. So I’m excited for this new film.
It’s probably not going to be very good. But it looks like Kevin Smith is just gonna go nuts, reflecting on his entire life and career. That should be more than enough to be weirdly awesome!
How about the new trailer for It 2!
Looks confidently scary and spooky. The first one was really good. Did I ever tell you henchies that I saw It twice in theaters? I saw it at the same theater a week apart with two different dates. It was weird, but funny in hindsight.
Next up is Top Gun: Maverick, a super weird return.
I was never super into the original Top Gun. It’s a fine film, and I saw it as a kid, but it wasn’t life changing. So to bring Tom Cruise back for a sequel some 30 years later? Yeah, sure, I suppose that’s what people are doing these days. The trailer looks alright. Here’s hoping it’s worth watching.
Stay tuned to my blog over the next couple of days for even more trailers and any other news I can squeeze out of Comic-Con!
Jason Mewes – of Jay and Silent Bob fame – will be starring later this month in a movie about competitive video gaming called Noobz…which I’m pretty sure is supposed to sound like ‘boobs’. And if that’s what they were going for, they definitely succeeded.
The movie will be released in theaters on Jan. 25, with January being the typical dumping grounds for bad movies. I don’t expect it to be any good, it’s just nice to know that Jason Mewes is still getting work, plus the game appears to be about a Gears of War tournament. My friends and I used to play Gears of War online all the time. We were semi-good, and it was a blast. So maybe this will be some kind of guilty pleasure movie.
And judging by the poster, they were definitely going for ‘boobs’.
