This Princess Bride thing is just a troll.

It’s a throwaway line from a Variety puff piece trying to explain, among other reasons, why CBS picked up and revived an IP (the One Day at a Time remake) that Netflix canned after three seasons because not enough people were watching it. Which CBS can do! I don’t watch network TV and I don’t have cable and I didn’t care if that show was on Netflix or not. But the Princess Bride thing was, like, one sentence in it.

The Fairly Brutal X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX trailer.

Brutal, but probably fair. I dunno, I didn’t see it. I gotta be told that the movie didn’t suck before I’ll watch an X-Men film these days. And apparently that strategy works like gangbusters!

Although, honestly? I’m not sure how they’re going to port all of this into the MCU. The entire ‘society thinks mutants are bad’ thing that Marvel liked to do worked fine in the comic books, but it feels kind of… hokey, now.

Ach, well: we’ll let Ryan Reynolds sort it all out.

The ‘official’ THE NIGHT MONKEY trailer.

Sony’s getting cheeky.

Basically, SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME is now out on streaming. Sony’s just doing some creative advertising, that’s all. Fun movie, if you haven’t seen it; I enjoyed it, you should watch it.

PS: They might also be establishing a brand for it, in case Spider-Man ends up with Disney somehow. Which is also creative of them.

The IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON spoilerific Netflix trailer.

Said IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON presented in link form because STUPID SPOILERS. Seriously, I’m not a no-spoilers fanatic — but you don’t have to give away the entire flick in the trailer. Just let us think that it’s the Obvious Thing and then surprise us when we watch.

Anyway, the movie does look interesting, and it comes out September 27th. On Netflix, so check it out there. And check out the trailer at your own risk. Seriously, it tells you the whole damn plot.

Disney+ raiding old Marvel cartoon libraries?

Yes! Well, at least in the Netherlands:

Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney Plus may be the new home of some classic Marvel animated television shows. A free trial version of the service in the Netherlands revealed a host of animated shows on the service. Disney has not yet confirmed if these titles are Netherlands exclusive, or if the titles will be available in other countries.

The titles showcased include X-Men ’92 Spider-Man ’94, Spider-Woman ’79, Spider-Man ’81, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, Iron Man ’94, Fantastic Four ’94, Incredible HulkSilver Surfer, and Spider-Man Unlimited.

Although the only reason why I can imagine that they wouldn’t would be for rights reasons. Seems like a no-brainer; not to mention, an instant nostalgia bomb. I can’t wait to see how much Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, the beloved show of my youth, actually sucked! I’m more worried that Incredible Hulk will, though. Nostalgia is a two-bladed weapon.

LITTLE MONSTERS ending up with a Hulu release (Trailer).

October 11th. And didn’t I laugh when I saw the LITTLE MONSTERS trailer gleefully use “Academy Award Winner Lupita Nyong’o” as a draw! It was a happy, approving laugh. That’s the right call, there. That’s what you do to sell your movie.

By the way, this is a zombie movie and that’s a red-band trailer. You Have Been Warned.

Oh, hey. George RR Martin gearing up to infuriate ANOTHER set of TV fans.

Isn’t that exciting?

HBO declined comment.

Tweet of the Day, I Take Joy In The Pervasive Despair Of This Tweet… edition.

…provided, of course, that the picture in it wasn’t created by Sandy Petersen. I sincerely doubt that it was. But if it was created by him, switch out the title for something with more couth.
