All Aboard the Hype Train!

The second trailer for Avengers Endgame dropped Thursday morning and finds the team, sporting some new matching outfits, banding together for one final mission to do…something to Thanos.

Maybe put him in the corner and make him think about what he’s done?

The trailer looks back to pivotal moments in each of the remaining Avengers’ lives, giving weight to the long-held theory that the installment will find the superheroes journeying through their past to remedy the present.

The trailer ends with an appearance by Captain Marvel, meeting Thor for the first time, who tries to intimidate her by summoning Stormbreaker. She remains unimpressed, prompting him to proclaim, “I like this one.”

Me too buddy.

Also, are Captain America and Captain Marvel gonna start trying to pull rank on each other?

Endgame opens April 26th, that’s next month!!

Something, Something, Hype Train…Here’s the Civil War Trailer!


Captain America: Civil War will see the Avengers turn against one another in a fight over government oversight. On one side is Captain America, who is told that the world can no longer tolerate his un-checked vigilantism but that’s not the way he sees it. On the other side is Iron Man, who views the limitations placed on them as what separates the heroes from the bad guys, and also want to punch Steve in his face.

The havoc of the past films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems seem to have left civilians anxious about these super-powerful dudes roaming the planet. And the government has drafted legislation that would require would-be heroes to prove their goodwill by working under strict oversight.

The movie is directed by The Winter Soldier filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo. The story was inspired by the seven-part story-line written by Mark Millar in 2006-07 which pitted heroes against heroes in a crossover event that had the entire world of characters choosing sides behind either Captain America or Iron Man.

There Are No Brakes on the Hype Train (The Force Awakens Trailer Reaction)

Soooo, the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer looks pretty exciting.

First impression is: What? Were all of the Rebellion’s victories in the previous movies for nothing? People seem to have either forgotten what happened at the Battle of Endor or they’re too far out in the boonies to have noticed. Or maybe killing the Emperor and destroying the newer Death Star wasn’t enough to topple the Empire?

Also, although we did get Han and Leia, we didn’t see any Luke Skywalker (at least I didn’t, feel free to correct me if I missed him). What’s the deal with that? Could Luke’s absence be a plot point? Finn is shown about to throw down in a lightsaber duel with Kylo Ren so I presume someone taught him some fencing. Either that, or it’s going to be an incredibly short fight…

The spaceship battle scenes look totally rad though! In fact, pretty much anything involving a spaceship looked pretty damn awesome to me.

I could use a cigarette and a nap after that nergasm. Here’s hoping we don’t have another Phantom Menace on our hands…

Neil deGrasse Tyson Explains ‘Interstellar’ (Spoiler Alert!)

Neil deGrasse Tyson has already assessed the science in “Interstellar,” but since you’re probably still confused about the movie’s ending (as I am), here he is explaining things like time, space and how Coop (Matthew McConaughey) was able to enter the fifth dimension (that library tesseract thing) to contact his daughter in the past.

Mostly Tyson explains the overall mechanics of these concepts and how they relate to black holes, but it’s fairly simple to apply his explanations to Christopher Nolan’s complicated conclusion. He does emphasize that it’s all speculative since we don’t actually know what’s in a black hole or whether past events are amendable in higher dimensions.

Still, maybe the video will help you to wrap your head around the movie’s puzzle. If not, he pretty much says, “Oh, whatever!” at the end,  and what Neil deGrasse Tyson says goes.
