Netflix have just released a teaser trailer for their upcoming The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance series, which is a prequel to 1982’s The Dark Crystal, a fantasy film by the renowned puppeteer Jim Henson. The Dark Crystal is probably my favourite fantasy movie, so I’ve been mildly interested in this series ever since I first heard of it. And after watching the teaser trailer… I’m still mildly interested in it.😅
I found this teaser a bit confusing, to be honest. As I said above, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is a prequel series, but not only does the trailer feature locales from the original film, it also seems to have flashforwards to it, making it hard to tell what era each bit of footage was depicting. Hopefully the subsequent trailers will make things clearer. But one thing I can say now is that I’m glad that The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance has a prominent heroine in it, although she cannot hold a candle to Kira, the heroine from the 1982 movie.😋
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is out on August 30. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
HBO has released a trailer for a new series titled His Dark Materials, starring Dafne Keen (who was, incidentally, fabulous in the 2017 film Logan). I’m not familiar with the source material of His Dark Materials, namely the trilogy by Philip Pullman, but I have seen The Golden Compass, which was a 2007 film adaptation of the first of these books. I thought The Golden Compass was reasonably entertaining; the world it is set in, where magic and science co-exist, was interesting. However, because no sequels were ever produced, I don’t know how the story turns out. Hopefully the HBO series will be able to cover the entire trilogy.
His Dark Materials is due to be released by HBO later this year. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
Well, this Japanese trailer for the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel film is just incredible. Unlike the Western trailers, this one really gives you a sense of the epicness of Alita‘s story. I’m very impressed! I only wish I’d seen it before I published my last post, on the Alita poster, because I could’ve included it in there.😋 I actually had the webpage with the Japanese trailer open while I was writing that post, but I assumed it was the same as last month’s Western trailer, just with Japanese subtitles. I was planning to watch it simply to see what the Japanese subtitles were like. I certainly wasn’t expecting to have my mind blown.😀 I think I’ll go and watch it again now. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
This poster for the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel film was revealed on twitter yesterday. Alita looks amazing, doesn’t she? I love her pose, her proportions and her expression. She’s perfect!😍 I was a little disappointed when Alita was pushed back to February (from its December release date), but seeing this poster has got me excited for it once again! Assuming this is the official theatrical poster, it’ll be great to see it in the cinemas soon. And it’d be great to see it on my wall one day, as well!😄
A second trailer for Alita was released last month and a short clip from it was released only a few days. You can check out both below. Continue reading
Today, three more characters were revealed for Koei Tecmo‘s upcoming fighting game, DEAD OR ALIVE 6. The most interesting among these three is the brand new character named NiCO, She is, rather surprisingly, an 18-year-old evil scientist, but she is clearly the eccentric-type rather than the threatening-type. She fights using Pencak Silat, which is described as a style of Southeast Asian martial arts and she can also shoot plasma from her rings.
I completely missed the first one, but a second trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse animated film has been released. Spider-Man has always been my favourite super hero, probably because I think the design of his costume is incredibly cool. So although I’m not really into American comics, I have been interested in this particular film ever since I saw the teaser trailer for it earlier this year.
Yesterday, which was the first day of the 2018 Tokyo Game Show, a new trailer for the upcoming remake of the Resident Evil 2 video game was unveiled by CAPCOM. This trailer focuses on the game’s plot and it looks simply amazing. We see a bit more of Leon, but we also get to see a lot of the female characters who appear in the game.
