Spider-man: Far From Home Trailer

When I went and saw Avengers Infinity War in the theater I remember hearing someone crying when Spider-Man gets turned to dust. While the scene between him and Tony Stark is touching, knowing that there was a new Spider-Man movie coming out kind of nullified any sadness for me.

Now we get to see what Peter Parker is going to be up to once Avengers Endgame rolls its credits. Looks like an overseas class trip is in order. We finally get to see Nick Fury recruit Spider-Man and most importantly we get Mysterio. While it’s not the Bruce Campbell Mysterio we all kind of wanted during the original Spider-Man trilogy this version still looks pretty cool to me. Check out the trailer below.

The Midnight Drive-In: The Deadly Bees & The Swarm

We are down a host as Doug got another moose tangled up in his internet so we start things off for some reason talking about Patrick Swayze and then transition to talking about people from the Poltergeist films. After that we talk about two Bee movies with The Deadly Bees and then Michael Caine helps us take on The Swarm. We also talk about Mindhunter, Into The Spider-Verse, and complain about all our health issues.

The Midnight Drive-In: Elvis & Bubba Ho-Tep

This week we’re celebrating the birthday of The King Of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. First up we look at the completely fictional TV Movie ELVIS directed by John Carpenter and starring Kurt Russell as the man in the jump suit himself. After that we finally get into the true adventures of The King by talking about Don Coscarelli film Bubba Ho-Tep starring Bruce Campbell. After that we talk about Bandersnatch, Spiderman: Into The Spider-Verse, and how depressing The Road is.

The Midnight Drive-In: Starcrash & Flash Gordon

This week we take to the stars as we talk about one movie that rips off Star Wars and another that was based on the property that inspired Star Wars. First up is the movie that made David Hasselhoff famous. Ok not really but he is in it. It’s Starcrash. After that we go off to fight Ming in Flash Gordon. Also we chat about Blood Simple, The Predator, and how our Christmas was.

The Midnight Drive-In: Body Bags & The Village Of The Damned

For Christmas we got you a double feature of Mark Hamill and John Carpenter working together! First up we talk about John Carpenter’s anthology film Body Bags. After that we get a movie that has Luke Skywalker, Superman, and that lady from Cheers in Village Of The Damned! After that we comment on the chaos at Noah’s house, some movies to watch for Christmas, and troll a list that tries to convince us Rocky IV is a Christmas movie.

Hellboy Trailer Drops

Lionsgate gave us an early Christmas present by dropping the new Hellboy trailer today. This reboot of the Del Toro films seems to pick up on a similar tone which makes me wonder why Mignola wanted to start over rather than continue on with Del Toro’s series of films. He promised a darker tone but this seems on the same track.  I guess we’ll see in April when the film hits theaters.

Zack Snyder’s Vision of an Evil Superman finally realized…by James gunn.

Hey everyone, Sometimes Mike here. Between living in hotels and also locking myself out of GN.com, I’ve been away for a bit. But with the hotel’s wi-fi, and the help of some guy named Bryan in GN IT,  I’m back now, and what have I got for you? No, I didn’t get you any T-shirts. I didn’t know what sizes to get, or if you’d even wear them if I got them for you. 

No. Today, I’ve got a new trailer for you. The movie is called Brightburn, and while James Gunn’s name is stamped prominently on the trailer, as well as shamelessly on the above title, it was written by his brothers, Brian and Mark Gunn, and directed by David Yarovesky. 

The tagline goes thus: What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister

Sounds familiar, and you’ll spend the trailer making note of all the similarities to you know who. Superman…in case you didn’t know who but didn’t want to ask for fear of looking silly. 

Give it a look:

I mean, they even used the same font from Man of Steel. And I haven’t looked that closely into it, but the music sounds very close. Zack Snyder’s vision of making the DCEU’s Superman (or at least, this movie’s version of an alien that for copyright reasons definitely probably isn’t Supes) the evil overlord of Injustice fame is coming true, at the hands of a group of people very capable of making it worth seeing. At least we know there might be decent, unambiguous character development this time around.

Superhero horror is the next logical step in this equation, and let’s be honest, it’s taken a lot longer to hit the big screens than you figure it would. This looks interesting for sure, and my curiosity is more than a little piqued at the timing of such a movie, what with Gunn getting the boot from Disney, and half the DCEU’s future being a giant question mark. Is this a play to prove something to the ill-fated, lackluster WB/DC movie-verse, or is it a move in spite of them? Either way, James Gunn’s money is in the pot, so I think we’re in for something special.

Brightburn hits theaters May 24th, 2019. 

What did you think of the first Brightburn trailer? Let us know in the comments.

The midnight drive-in: enemy mine & innerspace

This week we go Full Quaid.  Luckily it’s full Dennis Quaid otherwise we’d be in big trouble. First up we see him get marooned on a planet with an alien and they have to work out their differences in Enemy Mine.  Then we see him get shrunk and injected into Martin Short . . . where they have to work out their differences in Innerspace.  After that it’s chatting about The Legend Of Hill House, Christmas Specials, and Hostiles.

Let’s Talk Avengers: Endgame

This morning I saw on Facebook that the first trailer for Avengers: Endgame got dropped. After a few viewing throughout the day here’s what I have to say.

I’m liking what I saw… To me it felt like Avengers: AoU because how bleak it was. Stark talking about dying floating in space, I can see him getting Rescue[d]. Capt. is clean shaven and is worried about the future and I got all electrified when he gave his “Not sure what to do if it doesn’t work” speech. A down and out Steve Rogers fighting to survive, it can get nasty.

Hawkeye or Ronin both good characters in the comics. I don’t mind the costume change. Barton slice and dicing probably mad his family disappeared in the snap.

So! GOTG wasn’t highlighted much in the trailer and no tears over that. Scott Lang returns, how nice. Hopefully we find out how he excepted the Quantum Realm.

Thor, Banner not much to them in the trailer I hope A:EG isn’t focused on Thor like the last film. And! If you seen the set photos and the dirt sheets talking about time travel, not a fan. Don’t want to relive Marvel’s Avengers all over again. Could come out as a What If? story.

So what do you think of the trailer, comment below with your fan theories or fantasy bookings. Massive!

The Midnight Drive-In: Watchers & Whispers

It’s time for some Dean Koontz movies!  While there aren’t as many to choose from as much as Stephen King movies we were able to track a couple down.  First up is the Corey Haim film Watchers!  Next up we watch Chris Sarandon have awkward sex in Whispers. Noah talk about the new episodes of MST3K, we ponder about the cancellation of Daredevil, and Doug tells us all about Creed II.

The Midnight Drive-In: Dead Heat & Full Eclipse

Lately cops have been getting a bad rap but this week we’re looking at two movies where the cops go out of their way to do the right thing by becoming MONSTER COPS!!!  First up is the 1988 Treat Williams and Joe Piscopo zombie cop film Dead Heat.  After that Mario Van Peebles has to join a squad of cops that turn out to be werewolves in Full Eclipse.  We also talk about Noah’s work woes, Doug’s internet woes, and the animated Batman 66 movies.

The Midnight Drive-In: Gargoyles & Mazes And Monsters

This week we head to the land of TV movies.  First up is the 1972 film Gargoyles.  After that Tom Hanks leads us into some role playing with Mazes & Monsters.  Noah then gives a talk about how Mazes & Monsters was part of the Satanic Panic scare at the time that tried to cast D&D in a bad light.  After that we chat about some Daredevil, Vigilante, and Dead Like Me.

 

The Midnight Drive-In: Endgame & Deathrow Gameshow

Reality TV just doesn’t cut it anymore so we have to take things to a higher level.  How about a live TV show where one person is the prey and has to fend off a band of hunters?  Or how about a gameshow where prisoners on deathrow try to win prizes for their families after their death or maybe even their freedom?  If either of these sound great then you’re in luck.  First off we’re talking Endgame.  After that we take a trip to the wackier side with Deathrow Gameshow.  Also we talk some Walking Dead, Daredevil, and The Meg.

The Dream Master on Blu-Ray in the Elm Street Collection

I finally bought A Nightmare on Elm Street collection on Blu-Ray. I owned all those movies in the past on VHS and only got around to buying the first and fourth movies on DVD.

My main reason to buying this collection is to have A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 4: The Dream Master on Blu-Ray. The DVD copy I have is really grainy but after watching the Blu the picture is so clear and the sound is top notch. Specially when Running from this Nightmare kicks in.

The extras for the Dream Master are short and sweet. A handful of featurettes looking at Freddy’s makeup, chest and meatball face effects and interviews with director Renny Harlin, Robert Shaye, and KNB founding member Howard Berger. If you seen The Elm Street Legacy you probably heard those stories before.

I keep thinking there’s some kind of uncovered information about The Dream Master but there never is. I have the same problem with The Punisher (1989) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990). Just give me that special edition Blu that I always wanted and call it a day. Now I can put The Punisher to bed, because Umbrella Entertainment released a three cut with commentary and extras Blu. That’s all I need.

There’s a bonus disc that came with the Elm Street collection. Two episodes of Freddy’s Nightmares, handful of interviews with Wes Craven, Clive Barker, Rachel Talalay and many others who worked on the Elm Street franchise.

I’m happy with this collection. And just having a better quality of The Dream Master makes up for the $30 price tag. Also I didn’t get any 3-D glasses for Freddy’s Dead. The extras are fine but watch Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy for a rundown on every film.

The Midnight Drive-In: Demon Seed (1977) & Split Second

This week we’re talking big guns and rapey houses.  First up is Julie Christie (which is the name of my very first girlfriend from back in 6th grade. true story) in Demon Seed.  After that Rutger Hauer gets Noah all a quiver in Split Second.  Also Doug tells us about trick or treating with little kids, we talk about the movie Trick ‘r Treat, and we go over favorite Halloween specials.
