Comic-Con Trailer Sunday!

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?

The Boys

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.

Good Omens

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.

Mortal Engines

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!

The New She-Ra Looks Pretty Good!

I don’t remember if I ever watched the She-Ra cartoon back in the 1980s, and I watched a lot of cartoons in the 80s. I definitely watched He-Man. I also watch a lot of cartoons these days, and the new She-Ra and the Princesses of Power looks pretty good to me!

We’re in an odd place right now. There are a lot of awesome cartoons, like Steven Universe, Adventure Time and more…but some of those are ending. We’ll need new cartoons. And so many of those cartoons appear to be reboots all of a sudden, instead of original ideas.

We have the DuckTales reboot, the Voltron reboot, then there’s that Thundercats reboot, now here’s a She-Ra reboot and there’s even been an announcement of a Care Bears reboot. So much for original cartoon ideas. I hope I live long enough for the Steven Universe reboot.
