So Bad, so good
We are just over a month away from the premiere of Gotham season 2 on Fox and today we get to check out a new promo trailer for the show. As you can see in the embed above, the lunatics are running things at Arkham Asylum in this new promo trailer and, I suspect, they will become quite unruly as events unfold on the second season of the show. We already know that young Selina Kyle is a featured character on Gotham and that she will grow up to be Catwoman … but does this promo trailer introduce another Catwoman? HMMM. Check out the trailer, see what you think. Gotham season 2 premieres on Fox on September 21.

"Like a testicle with teeth"
Yesterday we got to see the trailer for the first Deadpool movie trailer and today we finally get to see the actual trailer … and as you can see above, it was well worth the wait. This trailer, in all it’s NSFW red band glory, was first screened at San Diego Comic-Con last month and, as promised, it has finally been released officially online a few weeks later. The language is strong, the violence is bloody and there are a few naked body parts so … yeah, it’s the Deadpool trailer that we deserve. Check out the NSFW red band trailer above to get your first look at the forthcoming Deadpool movie (due out in theaters in February 2016) and/or click below to see the censored, totally safe for work version of the trailer.

"There is a moment that changes history"
In September a fictionalized story of the gay rights movement that got its start at the Stonewall Inn in NYC, NY back in 1969 will open in theaters and today we get to see the first trailer for the film. Back in June, as you may be well aware, the US Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage here in the US and was seen by many as the culmination of the push for gay liberation that started at the Stonewall Riot … so I’d say the release of this movie next month is very timely. Check out the trailer for Stonewall above and get your first look at this film, directed by Roland Emmerich. Depending on your knowledge of the gay rights movement, this film might prove educational for you. Stonewall opens in theaters on September 25.

In theaters this Friday
The not-really anticipated reboot of Fantastic Four will open in theaters this Friday and to promote one last time, Fox has released a final extended trailer for the superhero movie. The trailer features all of the footage that we’ve previously seen in earlier trailers with a few new scenes here and there. This final F4 trailer, tho, is deffo worth watching because it comes with a cameo by Deadpool (played by Ryan Reynolds). Deadpool informs us that if we see Fantastic Four in theaters when it opens this Friday, we will get an extra treat … from him. Check out the final trailer for Fantastic Four above and keep an eye out for a special guest appearance by Deadpool.
"From the studio that inexplicably sewed his mouth shut the first time ..."

Click the embed above to see the Deadpool trailer trailer and gird your loins because the first official Deadpool trailer will be released tomorrow! Huzzah!!!

Coming August 23
Way back in March we got to see the first teaser video for the forthcoming spin-off series Fear the Walking Dead (which takes place in the world of The Walking Dead) and today we get to see the second, ominously eerie teaser video for the show. About 3 weeks ago, we got to see the first full length trailer for Fear and that clip gave us a really good feel for what we can expect when the series premieres on AMC on Sunday August 23. Fear the Walking Dead, as you may know, will tell the tale of how the zombie apocalypse of TWD got started in Los Angeles, CA. I’m not sure if we will learn what caused the zombie outbreak but we will, for sure, see how events unfolded in a major city when the zombies overtook mankind. It’s a very interesting prospect for a TV series and I expect that fans of The Walking Dead will be very interested to watch. I know I am. Save the date, friends, August 23 is day we will all Fear the Walking Dead.
Back in March, Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson walked the runway at Paris Fashion Week in character as male supermodels Derek Zoolander and Hansel as filming production of their sequel film Zoolander 2 got underway. In April, we learned that Derek Zoolander will be a father in the sequel film and we also learned that Justin Bieber will be appearing in the film (but not as son of Zoolander). Today we get to see the just-released first teaser trailer for Zoolander 2. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this fairly simple first teaser but it did make me laugh so, I’m pleased. Zoolander (2001) is still a pretty funny movie so they’ve got a lot to measure up to with this sequel. So far, it looks like it’ll be a fun movie … what do you think?

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie? YES, PLEASE!
Altho we are still in the middle of summer, the time has come to look forward to the coming Xmas season and the movies coming to theaters this holiday season. Among the movies we can look forward to at the end of the year is a new comedy titled The Night Before starring Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie. As you can see in the NSFW red band trailer above, The Night Before tells the tale of 3 friends who celebrate one last Xmas together before they end their annual Xmas celebration tradition.
Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie) have been friends since childhood, and for a decade, their yearly Christmas Eve reunion has been an annual night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball – the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.
The movie looks like it could be very funny, after all … it’s a Xmas tale told by a Jew … which equals hilarity! Personally, I’m most excited by the fact that JGL is in this movie so it’s piqued my interest. Have a look above, see what you think. Does this look like a movie you might be adding to your holiday entertainment schedule?

The Final Season
On October 24, Starz will premiere the third and final season of their mostly excellent historical fiction drama Da Vinci’s Demons. As I write this post about the release of the show’s season 3 trailer, I’m realizing that I have never written about Da Vinci’s Demons here on the blog before. I’ve been watching the show since it’s debut in 2013 and have enjoyed it along the way. I guess Demons is one of those shows you watch, enjoy but just never get around to talking about with your friends unless someone else brings it up in conversation. The show tells the fictionalized life story of Leonardo Da Vinci who, through his almost metaphysical creativity, gets wrapped up in a quest that takes him around the world in search of the truth about his past … infusing historical facts about the famed inventor that we know within this fictionalized story. The show caught my attention when its release was originally promoted back in ’13 and managed to keep my attention for two seasons. This first look at season 3, I must admit, doesn’t grab me like the previous seasons have but I trust that the forthcoming episodes will be entertaining. Starz has announced that this third season of Da Vinci’s Demons will be the last so we fans of the show have this final season to look forward to before Da Vinci‘s story is complete. Long before Outlander put Starz on the TV drama map, Da Vinci’s Demons paved the way for the growth of quality programming that the network offers now. If you haven’t been watching the show, there is plenty of time to binge watch and get caught up before the final season premieres on October 24. Watch the final season with me, won’t you?

Fox has released a new teaser video for the forthcoming reboot of The X-Files, due out early next year, and as you can see above, this new teaser features Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) actually interacting … speaking with one another. Are you ready?, Mulder asks Scully. OMG. These teaser videos are less than 20 seconds long and they mostly use the same footage but the small bits of new footage is everything! Check out the video above and get MORE excited for the return of The X-Files.
