New York Comic-Con is still in full swing and we’ve got a bunch of more trailers to share, mostly for upcoming TV shows! I love trailers and I love sharing trailers!
First up, let’s check out the trailer for the upcoming Picard TV show, starring Captain Picard from Star Trek! I’ve never been a major Star Trek fan, but I’m enjoying Star Trek: Discovery, and will probably try out Picard.
I’m definitely a fan of this trend of bringing back original actors for revival shows. So keep it up, Hollywood!
And here’s our first proper look at the third season of Runaways! I’m really enjoying this show, and the third season looks to be good. I’m wondering if I should fully binge the Cloak and Dagger show to prepare myself for the crossover.
What shows are you henchies looking forward to? And I’ve got a bunch more trailers to share soon!
I was never a Star Trek fan. Just wasn’t my thing growing up. But nowadays I’m a major consumer of all things geeky and TVish (though I have yet to see the second season of Star Trek: Discovery). Anyway, I’ll definitely be checking out this new Jean Luc Picard-based TV show when it comes out. This trailer is from Comic-Con last weekend.
Star Trek: Picard looks to be a fun revival-type show, where a bunch of classic Star Trek actors show back up to appeal to nostalgia and fan service. Along with the obvious Picard, we’re also getting Seven of Nine from Star Trek: Voyager, which is a nice touch! Data and Ryker are also scheduled to return. And if it’s popular, I’m sure a lot of people will be back.
Picard arrives on some streaming service or another early next year.
Yesterday, Comic Con unleashed a virtual torrent of movie and TV trailers. They’ve been doing it all weekend, in fact. And if I were more of a professional, and was getting paid to post stuff online, I probably would have flooded this blog with a million trailer posts yesterday! But I’m neither of those things, so I’m just gonna dump them all right here, right now, in one big post. That’s probably better for all of you!
First up, Thor: Ragnarok!
That trailer was brilliant. Nothing short of a masterpiece in trailer construction. Funny, action-packed, giving just hints of the story, with plenty of other hints about how much fun we’re going to have watching Thor 3. Hulk looks amazing, and yet somehow, Thor comes off as even cooler. I’m very much looking forward to this!
Next up, Justice League!
That trailer was dark garbage. Complete opposite from Thor: Ragnarok. It’s all slow-motion and darkness, with a couple attempted zingers thrown in to try and appeal to the Marvel crowd. I can see why the Super DC Fanboys might love this trailer, but it does little to nothing for me. None of the characters look interesting and none of the action looks fun. It looks like Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice retrofitted to include more forced humor.
I’m definitely excited for Stranger Things, season 2!
Looks amazing! They were smart to start filming right away, since those kids all still look like kids. Season 3 is going to be in the throes of puberty. But season 2 looks great! Bigger monsters! Bigger mysteries! More Eleven! Can’t wait for this one!
I’m not too impressed, yet, with Star Trek: Discovery.
I was never a big Star Trek fan. In fact, I’ve never seen any of the series, save for maybe a few random episodes. So Discovery will be my first real watching of a Star Trek TV show. And it looks neat, but the trailers haven’t really captured me. I’m also a little disappointed that it’s set before all the other shows. That’s always a dumb idea. Not sure why they keep going back to it.
On the other hand, Orville looks hilarious!
Watch everybody love Orville, Seth MacFarlane’s Star Trek parody, more than they like Star Trek: Discovery. This show looks fun and has way more energy than Discovery, with special effects that seem on par. This should be pretty great!
I am not a Trekkie. Never have been. There’s nothing wrong with Trekkies, it just wasn’t the geeky fandom I embraced growing up. I’ve never seen the original TV series, though I have marathoned through the various movies — and I’m a big fan of the modern reboot movies.
But I’ll probably give the new TV show Star Trek: Discovery a try, because I’m a big fan of the current crop of prestige TV.
Though I’m a little disappointed that this series will be set before the original. Isn’t that exactly what they did with Enterprise, the last new Star Trek TV show? And didn’t that show flop? What’s the fascination with prequel shows? Why not boldly go into the future?
Also, is this new show set in the continuity of the modern reboot movies? Because that would be neat.
And if Star Trek isn’t your thing, Seth MacFarlane is making a parody show called The Orville. Now this show looks neat.
Maybe I’ll watch them both!
I’m still trying to wrap my head around the idea that there’s a super popular Broadway play about Alexander Hamilton. Considering I’ve never seen a Broadway play, it makes sense that Hamilton snuck up on me. Fortunately, some kind and awesome soul has already parodied the play with Star Trek.
Hats off to you, Jackson Lanzing. You are doing the Internet proud.
