The ‘Hotel Artemis’ trailer… announcement?

God, this stuff gets more complicated every year.

Anyway, Hotel Artemis looks like something out of John Wick, only everybody involved had been up all night making poor life choices. Please do not take that as a criticism, because it is not meant as one. There’s a surprisingly decent cast involved here and I am hopeful that it will be fun.  Then again, I am notoriously easy to please.

The New Incredibles 2 trailer.

I remember being that tired.

Seriously, though, it’s looking pretty good. I dunno if they’re gonna be able to collect lightning in a bottle the second time, too, but Incredibles 2 should be entertaining.  Out on June 15th, so we’ll see then.

The new Ocean’s 8 trailer.

I’m gonna wait until the reviews are in, but this trailer doesn’t take Ocean’s 8 off of the list.

Basically, it’s a gimmick film where I don’t mind the gimmick. Do an all-woman heist caper flick? Sure, go ahead.  I’m sure that the plot will be absurd, but then Ocean’s 11 at one point required the team to set off an electromagnetic pulse in order to make the caper work. Also, and let me be honest: I watched the first Ocean flick and didn’t bother with the other two. I’m not upset if they gimmick it.

But we’ll see what the reviewers say.

Apple to take a stab at Asimov’s Foundation trilogy.

Good luck with that: “In a competitive situation, Apple has nabbed a TV series adaptation of Foundation, the seminal Isaac Asimov science fiction novel trilogy. The project, from Skydance Television, has been put in development for straight-to-series consideration” (Via @danwallace70).  They’ve been trying to make something out of that IP for decades, and nobody’s every figured out how to make it gel.  Then again, Apple can afford to throw money at the problem in ways that most production companies can’t.

Bad Medicine download now available from @HPLHS.

Bad Medicine is the collection of medical-themed Mythos and Poe stories: “Cool Air,” “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar,” and “The Picture in the House.” Admittedly, the last one is perhaps a bit of a stretch when we’re talking medical. But certainly anatomy is involved.

I’m getting the CD itself, but check out the MP3 version. HPLH’s Dark Adventure Radio Theater productions are a favorite of mine. I mean, they must be: I’m not even trying to get a cut of the sale.

The “The Meg” “Guess I’m doing trailers today” trailer.

The Meg looks endearingly stupid.  But will it be endearingly stupid enough?

And the Future World trailer.

And then there’s Future World, which presents itself like it’s a Fallout mod where the modder had finally worked out all the bugs about using vehicles in-game.

My mini-review of “The Death of Stalin.”

Short version: legitimately funny while at the same time noting just how gruesomely awful Soviet Communism was.  I don’t know if you need to see The Death of Stalin in theaters, but if you do you won’t be wasting your time.
