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.

TBT: Do You Remember “Event Horizon”

Right now the biggest movie in the country is a horror movie that just so happens to be a remake of a classic 80s movie. Of course I am talking about the movie IT and though it scared me as a kid, there is a different movie that I want to talk about today that scared and intrigued me even more than that one. I’m talking about the 90s sci-fi horror film called Event Horizon. For those of you that have never scene the movie I highly recommend that you check it out especially if you like science fiction, intriguing story lines, mystery, and lots of gore. In my humble opinion this is definitely a must watch for any horror fan or science fiction fan for that matter. Just be warned Event Horizon is definitely not for the weak at heart.

Rick and Morty Claymations are Awesome!

So I don’t know about you guys but I find that one new episode of Rick and Morty a week is definitely not enough. Unfortunately that is all we get and the worst part, is that we are already more than half way done with the third season. However, there is more Rick and Morty goodness to be had you just have to know where to find it. For example, take these awesome Rick and Morty claymations that have been airing on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. They are short recreations of some classic movies staring clay figures of the Rick and Morty cast, and they actually used the real voice actors from the show.
