The A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD trailer.

All-caps is apparently now the style for movie titles, or else it always was and I’m just now finding out. I can live with either one. At any rate, witness the bright line that Hollywood fears to cross:

Hrm. Zack Snyder doing zombie heist flick “Army of the Dead.”

Army of the Dead is described as taking place during “a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, during which a man assembles a group of mercenaries to take the ultimate gamble, venturing into the quarantined zone to pull off the greatest heist ever attempted.” Assuming one takes seriously the premise*, this doesn’t sound like a bad movie concept. I’m curious as to how Snyder’s going to do it.

Out on Netflix, eventually.

*I don’t mean the premise of zombies, generally, although certainly other people might be forgiven for wanting the era of zombie movies to be over. I speak of the premise that people are willing to handle or buy valuables stolen from a zombie outbreak zone. Or that ‘stealing’ even means anything, anymore. Most zombie movies assume the end of global civilization, if only because otherwise the poor shambling things would get mowed down en masse.

Some interesting MCU Phase 4 stuff to unpack.

And before anybody says anything: look, folks, they’ve been setting it up for a bunch of movies now that people besides Thor can wield Mjolnir. As I understand the comics, if they follow them then Jane Foster will eventually become a Valkyrie or something anyway. At any rate, they haven’t even started filming Thor: Love and Thunder; none of this is gonna be written in stone.

Movie(s) of the Week: Captain Marvel.

So, we were at the Target today, and I saw the movie starring Captain Marvel, and then my wife saw the Captain Marvel movie. I wanted to see the movie starring Captain Marvel again and she wanted to see the Captain Marvel movie, so we ended up getting both the movie starring Captain Marvel and the Captain Marvel movie. Which was fine, because I don’t mind seeing the Captain Marvel movie again and she had sort of meant to see the movie starring Captain Marvel anyway.

Plus, there was a nice bonus at the checkout line. It turned out that the Captain Marvel movie was on sale. Shazam!

The Witcher teaser trailer.

Well all right, then.

I can, as they say, dig it. This is definitely a book Witcher, not a video game Witcher, and I’m actually fine with that. I don’t want it to suck. Video game movies don’t always suck, but betting that they will isn’t a bad strategy. If losing the silver sword helps with that, then rock on.

So. Do we want to talk about the Cats trailer?

Or do we just want to pretend that it never happened, there’s nothing to see here, and that all of this is a silly joke hahaha that will never be brought up again?

Tweet of the Day, Yeah Forget The New Top Gun Flick edition.

I didn’t see the point of the new Top Gun remake much, and this both annoys and offends me.

So, is Terminator: Dark Fate really just Terminator 3.1?

Mayyyyyybe. “During the panel for Terminator: Dark Fate, producer James Cameron did a live stream from the set of the Avatar sequels to talk about the film a little bit. One of the major pieces of news he dropped during this live stream was that Edward Furlong was back to reprise his role as John Connor…”

The ‘IT Chapter Two’ trailer.

I like the casting.

I’m also inclined to like this movie, because I enjoyed IT Chapter One. So there’s that. I expect to see this one in theaters when it comes out in September; which is impressive, because I generally only watch horror movies when I can pause the film.

So, we’re really maybe doing a Quentin Tarantino Star Trek?

So it would appear. And since he’s taking his ‘ten movies and out’ thing, Star Trek would be his last one:

[Quentin] Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is his ninth directorial effort, which means it will be his penultimate effort should he stick to this 10-film plan before retirement. The director’s GQ interview had many fans wondering how Tarantino will choose to end his directorial career and asking whether or not his much-discussed “Star Trek” movie would be his final filmmaking project. Tarantino successfully pitched an R-rated “Star Trek” to producer J.J. Abrams and Paramount and has written a script. The studio has yet to officially greenlight the project, but if they do and if Tarantino decides to direct that will probably be his last movie.
