Justice League - The Flash

Over the weekend, the first official Justice League trailer debuted online, bringing us the first footage from the movie since a sizzle reel was released at Comic-Con last summer. Even fans who haven’t been impressed by Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad were interested in seeing what Zack Snyder could do with a whole roster of DC Comics superheroes at his disposal.

After watching the Justice League trailer countless times, we have a more in-depth breakdown of the new trailer, taking a closer look at just what the hell is going on in this first union of Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). But sadly, there’s no Henry Cavill as Superman yet.

Wonder Woman - Gal Gadot

Over the weekend, a brand new Wonder Woman trailer hit the web and revealed a slew of new footage from the next film in the DC Expanded Universe franchise. While the previous trailers showcased the power of Wonder Woman with some spectacular action, this one slowed things down a bit to show us more of the origin story that’s at the center of the superhero’s first solo movie from director Patty Jenkins.

In our Wonder Woman trailer breakdown below, we take a much closer look at the new footage on display. So let’s see what this first adventure for the Goddess of Truth has in store for us. But beware of possible spoilers if you want to go into the movie completely blind. Read More »

Last week, 20th Century Fox surprised us with a Deadpool 2 teaser trailer attached to Logan. Entitled “Deadpool: No Good Dead,” the three and a half minute short film follows Ryan Reynolds, reprising his role as Wade Wilson (AKA Deadpool), as he tries to save someone being robbed in an alley. You might have missed some of the fun references that filmmaker David Leitch and crew helped hide in the video, so let’s run down the Deadpool 2 teaser trailer easter eggs.

And then, like clockwork, a new trailer arrived, and you know what means – it’s time to go through this whole thing frame-by-frame.

stranger things season 2 wills drawing

The Super Bowl trailer for Netflix’s hit series Stranger Things gave us our first look at the new monster which will likely be the central antagonist of the new season. We theorized in our Stranger Things season two trailer breakdown that the monster might be a loose adaptation of the Thessalhydra from the kids’ Dungeons and Dragons game from the first season. But new evidence uncovered in the Super Bowl TV spot seems to suggest there may be a different inspiration for the season two baddie.

rogue one missing footage

The shot above is not from the version of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that you’ll see in theaters. It’s no secret that Rogue One went through an extensive set of reshoots, which very likely led to a better movie. After seeing the film for the first time, I was amazed at how much footage and dialogue in the trailers and marketing wasn’t in the film itself.

In fact, the first Rogue One teaser trailer is comprised almost entirely of footage that wasn’t in the finished film. Some of it is completely different, while other parts are alternate takes and altered dialogue. Iconic lines that were part of the marketing campaign (like “I rebel!”) are nowhere to be found in the completed film. Heck, even the imagery of Stormtroopers patrolling in knee-deep water used in most of the poster and billboard advertising isn’t in the finished film.

The curious part of me wonders what Rogue One was like before the reshoots. What was changed in the process? We might not know the answers to these questions for a while, but I think, looking back at the marketing, that we can find some clues in the unused shots from the trailers. So join me as we adventure through the Rogue One trailers in an effort to decipher this mystery.

Transformers The Last Knight Trailer Breakdown

The first trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight arrived one week ago, along with our coverage from a set visit that happened over the summer up in Michigan (find out what we learned right here). However, last week was chock full of a bunch of stuff, including the teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, first trailer for The Mummy, the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the first trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes. So we thought maybe we should swing around to Transformers to try and assess exactly what the hell is going on in that first trailer.

One of the big questions following the trailer’s debut is why Optimus Prime and Bumblebee were fighting (and some theories have been proposed), but there’s much more to dive into in this trailer breakdown, and we’re trying to make sense of it all in our Transformers The Last Knight trailer breakdown after the jump.
