This is awesome.
While you’re here, here’s the latest Godzilla trailer too –
Oh my god, let’s DO THIS.
They’re here, and they look awesome. The newest and weirdest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (yes, this is what ties into that post-credits sequence in Thor: The Dark World) and it looks AMAZING.
BRING. IT. ON.
Sidenote: I still can’t get over how awesome Karen Gillan looks. The former Amy Pond is almost completely unrecognisable –
UPDATED: The poster has been dropped too, YOU’RE WELCOME.

Watch this! Quickly!
It’s just a teaser, admittedly, but…
HOLY BALLS THAT’S OPTIMUS PRIME RIDING ON THE BACK OF GRIMLOCK FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.
WHAT?! I CAN’T EVEN.
I hope they make a hoodie of this new version.
The one I have of the old one rocks my face off.
Yes yes, I know –
Some of you may remember that I didn’t get on that well with the first take at this reboot (I would argue that my 14 second re-make is much better) BUT this sequel looks promising. That’s Electro, being a bad-ass, Green Goblin (maybe) working with him, and the Rhino (mechanical form) getting a nod too.
If you count Vulture’s wings and Doc Ock’s arms, along with The Lizard from the first TASM, then you’ve got a six sinister bunch of villains right there, if you get my meaning.
I’m actually well up for this.
Not long now…
Watch this and tell me if you think it’s rubbish –
If you’re unsure of what this is about, Robocop (yes, that’s right, ROBOCOP) has been remade and is coming out later this year. No, I’m not kidding.
I know. It’s terrible. Everyone knows. But much like Total Recall before, and Indy 5 and Die Hard 6 no doubt after, it’s coming whether we like (let alone want) it or not
The trailer isn’t actually that bad, but the marketing video above, launched to coincide with the real CES that has just finished up in Las Vegas, is a clear homage to the same style of video that Ridley Scott released last year for Prometheus. In that one, Guy Pearce’s character, Peter Weyland, gives a talk at ‘TED 2023‘ about how he ‘WILL CHANGE THE WORLD’.
If you’ve not seen it, it’s [still] worth watching –
It was smart, it was innovative, and it certainly stood head and shoulders above the usual trailers and teasers you see year in, year out (for what it’s worth, Prometheus was OK, but the plot holes were enormous).
This thing from Robocop is a poor imitation at best. At worst, it puts people off seeing a film that they probably didn’t want in the first place.
At the time of writing, the view-count is still sub-100k.
I wonder if the box office takings will be the same.
