Yes, this is literally yesterday’s news, but hey, I got distracted by the Bumblebee trailer yesterday. Anyway, the sequel to 2014’s The Lego Movie was announced out of the blue a couple of weeks ago and now the first trailer is out. I’m a big fan of Lego and The Lego Movie was a whole heap of fun, so I’m really looking forward to being able to see the sequel, titled The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.😄
OK, when I first noticed the trailer for Bumblebee (the upcoming film from the Transformers franchise) on my YouTube feed yesterday, it did catch my eye, but I wasn’t terribly excited about it. I was eagerly awaiting the trailer for next year’s Lego movie, after all.😋 Well, I did get around to watching the Bumblebee trailer earlier today and I can now say that I am (cautiously) excited!
In January, 2008, a new type of figure was released as part of the limited edition version of the PS2 game The Confusion of Haruhi Suzumiya (which is of course, part of the The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya franchise). This figure was of Haruhi Suzumiya herself as a superhero and it marked the beginning of the figma brand of articulated figures, which are now ten years old!
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?
