Mark Hamill gets choked up filming with Yoda in TLJ

This is a very cool behind the scenes look at Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) filming a scene with Frank Oz (Yoda) on the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It’s like watching two old friends be reunited for the first time in decades. Essentially that is what is happening because even though Mark and Frank have reunited, this is the first time we see Luke and Yoda reunite since The Return of The Jedi was released back in 1983. For fans who saw The Last Jedi this was definitely an emotional moment and it’s really cool to see that it was for the actors as well. Check out the video below and be sure to let us know what you think of it Nerd Nation!

Pacific Rim: Uprising LEGO Trailer

Many movie trailers have gotten some really unique fan made versions of them and Pacific Rim: Uprising is no exception. This time it gets the LEGO treatment from Brick FORCE Studios and it looks awesome. I would definitely watch a Lego Pacific Rim movie not to mention be excited for some actual Pacific Rim Lego sets. The video below is a great recreation of the first trailer that was released for the upcoming Pacific Rim movie back in October of last year. If you haven’t seen it yet (which we recommend that you do first) or want to compare the two with each other, then just click here to see the first official Pacific Rim: Uprising trailer.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Movie Trailer

Ever since we heard that Marvel was going to be able to feature Peter Parker and Spider-Man in their Marvel cinematic universe we have been wondering what Sony was going to do with Miles Morales. Last year they announced that they would be making an animated movie featuring him as Spider-Man and today we finally get our first look at it. The movie is titled Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and right off the bat the animation reminds me of an updated version of the 2003 MTV Spider-Man series. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing though. In fact it actually looks pretty cool. I love the stylized look to the animation and especially Miles as Spidey. 

Batman Anime Trailer and First look

So an new Batman anime movie is actually a thing and it looks pretty amazing. Our first taste of a Batman anime was all the way back in 2008 with Batman Arkham Knight, which was a compilation of short animations from different artists. It was released as a promotional project that coincided with the Batman: The Dark Knight movie. Personally I loved this idea and always wondered what it would be like to see batman in his own anime movie. Well wonder no longer Nerd Nation because an official Batman anime is coming and it looks awesome. The movie is titled Batman Ninja and we have the trailer and first look posted for you in a video below.

Avengers: Infinity War Official Trailer

10 years of Marvel movies has all led up to this. After all the waiting and speculation we finally get our first look at the third and possibly final Avengers movie. Who knows what will follow but one thing is for sure that the Marvel cinematic universe will never be the same after this next movie. The first official trailer for Avengers Infinity War dropped today, and from the very start of this trailer you get the sense that this is not going to be like the other Marvel movies that we have seen before. For the first time ever we get to see all of the Marvel heroes from The Avengers, to Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and even the Guardians of the Galaxy come together in one epic movie. 

Star Wars The Last Jedi Official Trailer

Here we go Star Wars fans! We’ve been waiting anxiously to get another look at the latest Star Wars movie titled The Last Jedi. Just like Star Wars The Force Awakens, this trailer premiered during Monday night football. It was all the way back in April that we got our first look at The Last Jedi in the form of a teaser trailer. If you missed it or want to watch it again, then just click here to check it out. This time we get a much more sinister and mysterious looking trailer than the Force Awakens. I don’t want to say that the Dark Side has a big upper hand in this one, but it is definitely looking that way. Still, what else makes for a great story other than some serious conflict?

Pacific Rim: Uprising Official Trailer

It was back in July when we got our first taste of the new Pacific Rim movie in a short teaser, but we didn’t really get to see any actual footage from the film. If you missed it, be sure to check it out by clicking here. Well here we are 4 years after the original movie was released and we finally get the first official trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising. Once again the new Jaegers look awesome and the Kaiju look even more menacing than before. Also it appears that the humans are back to doing what they do best, which is of course fighting with each other. All in all this trailer is awesome and Pacific Rim 2 looks like it’s going to be even more intense and action packed than the first one.

Blade Runner Black Out 2022 Anime

Blade Runner 2049 is set to hit theaters in just a couple of weeks on October 13. It is the sequel to the 1982 science fiction classic starring Harrison Ford. Some of you may be wondering how a movie from 1982 will connect to a movie being released in 2017. The answer to that question as well as many others is of course…Anime! That’s right an original anime short titled Blade Runner Blackout 2022 has been created to connect the events of the 2 feature films. This is actually one of 3 short films that has been produced for the Blade Runner saga and it is directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, the genius behind Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.
