Suicide Squad 101


Fun times await the DC Universe

In a month’s time, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. are going to unveil their entry in the all-important Summer Blockbuster™ sweepstakes. This promises to be yet another game-changer in a genre that had the  esteemed auteur Steven Spielberg comparing its surge in popularity to Westerns in his boyhood years.

(Ho ho, ha HA ha ha, it’s me, again, Deadpool, again breaking ze foorth wall as usual.  Y’see, I was going to write up something about my favourite bunch of roguish miscreants and all-around SOBs but I got called again to undertake a hush-hush assignment, so I left some rough drafts for my friend – this here blogger – to make sense of all that mish-a-mash *notices annoyed glare* Ooopsie – all righty then, henceforth, all my contributions shall be rendered in italics, with the DP byline at the end – DP) Continue reading

Trailer: Shin Gojira

The original, Toho-made, Japanese Godzilla is back – and boy is he gnarly!!!!

Shin Godzilla (“True Godzilla”, to be retitled Godzilla: Resurgence in its eventual western release) shows the titular monster once again threatening to wreak havoc in a Japanese city.

Gotta love the texture on the creature this time around…it looks like hot lava is threatening to burst out of his skin!  All the more it accentuates the general bad-ass nature of the phenomenon.

The film is co-directed by Hideaki Anno (Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (Attack on Titan) so expect simply awesome goodness by July 2016.

Trailer: The Space Between Us

This interesting sci-fi film from STX Entertainment stars Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game) as the first human to be born in Mars.

His existence has constantly been covered up by NASA, who cautions him against travelling back to Earth, even if just to meet a girl he initially falls with online (played by Tomorrowland‘s Britt Robertson).

Sounds familiar?

It’s basically Robert Heinlein’s Stranger In A Strange Land, with twice the sappiness (to hook the Twilight crowd in) and without its hero’s Messianic powers and pretensions.   Now why isn’t the late author’s estate calling the filmmakers on this????
