Hollywood films based on Japanese material normally don’t really do a lot for me. Case in point: this year’s Ghost in the Shell. Occasionally, however, an interesting adaptation does crop up. Case in point: the film formerly known as Edge of Tomorrow. Now, I only saw this trailer for Alita: Battle Angel a short while ago, but it certainly seems to have a few things going for it. Christoph Waltz, who is a very talented actor, is in it and James Cameron, who has created some fantastic films in his long career, is one of the producers. And although I can’t say I’m a fan of Robert Rodriguez, as his previous films haven’t really been my cup of tea, the footage in the trailer sure looks amazing, doesn’t it?
I haven’t played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild it all, but I still think it looks great and this version of Zelda is so cute!😍 This trailer is for DLC Pack 2, titled The Champions’ Ballad. DLC Pack 1 was titled The Master Trails, but to be honest, I have no idea it even existed.😅 Anyway, I think the second DLC pack is the more interesting one, since it shows Zelda wearing two costumes I haven’t seen her wear before. You can check them out below.
The first costume looks like a formal one and the second looks like a winter outfit. They may or may not be new, I don’t really know. Oh, the third picture is just of Zelda with her pet doggie, I guess? Again, I don’t really know. I just thought it made a nice image.🙂
DLC Pack 2 was released today (December 8). I think this is the final DLC for Breath of the Wild, so I wonder what’s next for The Legend of Zelda series? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
Star Wars Battlefront II was launched yesterday and there has been no shortage of drama surrounding it. Being a big Star Wars fan, I was interested in it at first (as was the case with its predecessor) but the truth is I’m not really into MMORPGs. And then when the micro-transactions kerfuffle started, I pretty much tuned out. However, I have to say that coming across this live action Playstation trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II, entitled Rivalry, which was released a few days ago, was a pleasant surprise.
In only a couple of minutes, it manages to tell an enthralling tale of the rivalry between two young but passionate Star Wars fans: a boy who adores the Rebels and a girl who admires the Empire. As they grow up, their rivalry becomes more intense and eventually, ridiculously fantastical, but altogether it’s a thoroughly entertaining little clip. One thing I noted, though, is that the rivalry is apparently instigated by the Rebel boy, who seems to take a bit too much delight in destroying a TIE fighter piñata. In other words, the Rebel boy is the bad guy.😁
If you’re a fan of Star Wars, this trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II is definitely worth checking out. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
As you can see, a trailer featuring the two upcoming DLC episodes for Capcom’s video game Resident Evil 7 has been released. One episode, called Not a Hero, will be free to all those who own the game. The other episode, called End of Zoe, will only be available to those who have also purchased the season pass (which contains additional content), although it’s likely that it will also be available as an individual DLC episode.
I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan for almost my entire life, but I have to say that at the moment, my love for the franchise is at an all time low. Things seem to be going from bad to worse, in that galaxy far, far away. So to be honest I wasn’t exactly dying to see the full trailer for The Last Jedi, which was released today. What do I think about it, now that I’ve seen it? Not much, actually. I didn’t find it particularly interesting or exciting. The film does seem to have a very dark mood about it, which I think John Boyega (AKA Finn) remarked on not so long ago, but that may simply be due to the fact a lot of the shots in the trailer are in dark places. In any case, it may possibly end up being the darkest Star Wars film to date. We’ll just have to wait and see.
For those who do not know, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir is a French 3D cartoon that is a clever hybrid of Japanese magical girls and American superheros. Despite being aimed at young girls, it seems to have a very broad international fan base. I rather like it myself: the heroine Marinette (AKA Ladybug) is very endearing, her interactions with Adrien (AKA Cat Noir) are amusing and their adventures are simple but fun.
The trailer for the second season is quite long and shows a number of little snippets, although these have probably been edited from a handful of the first few episodes. The battle between Ladybug and Cat Noir caught my eye: they have fought before, but only when Cat Noir was being controlled by someone else. This battle seems to be a serious one, but it is a kid’s show, so maybe I’m overthinking things.😅
The first season of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir aired in 2015. The trailer for the second season has no information about when (or where) it will start airing, but my guess is early 2018. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
A trailer has just been released for the new Tomb Raider film, starring Alicia Vikander, which is coming out in early 2018. First and foremost, I have to admit I’m not really a Tomb Raider fan. I’ve never played any of the original games and I’ve only ever seen snippets of the Angelina Jolie movies. However, I have played the 2013 reboot game (titled simply Tomb Raider) and I found it thoroughly enjoyable. Now, it’s pretty obvious that the plot of the new movie is based on this particular game (albeit with a different set of supporting characters), so it could be a lot of fun.
The only thing that slightly bothers me is the choice of Ms Vikander as Lara Croft. Sure she’s incredibly beautiful and all that, but (to me at least) she doesn’t quite seem to have the right physique for a world-traversing adventurer. On the other hand, maybe I’m just being biased because I’m so used to how Lara Croft looked in the game. It’s entirely possible that Ms Vikander may be as good a Lara Croft as Daniel Craig is a James Bond, but I guess we’ll have to wait till next year to find out.
That’s all for the time being. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
