A shit ton of trailers have been rolling out lately. This is where I will be recapping the trailers that were released within the week and give a few impressions on them. I have to say I am excited to start this week because yesterday marked the release of the second trailer of John Wick: Chapter 2. I’m so pumped for this! Why? Do you have to ask?
Who would fuck with John Wick?! No one! Because I’m pretty sure word would have gotten around the assassin community that John just wrapped up killing 77 people for the death of his dog and the theft of his whip. For the sake of story though, an antagonist must rise to confront the unstoppable ANGEL OF DEATH that is John Wick. I mean just look at the 46 second mark of this trailer. That’s like 6 headshots in 3 seconds. Ain’t Nobody throw down like the Baba Yaga. The premise of the sequel is stated, “Legendary hitman John Wick is forced back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome, where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.” Blood Oaths, bullets, and BOOMs! The Baba Yaga is back and I’ve got to say this boogeyman looks like he’s ready to cap at least another 77 in this movie.
Common ain’t stand a chance against this madman.
Also out this week is the teaser for Blade Runner: 2049
This looks to have the look and feel of the original. The neon lights of the dystopian future seem poised to shine a light on Ryan Gosling’s hunt for the replicants this time around. Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford what a killer duo, I mean sure Harrison is years beyond his prime but that doesn’t mean that his character, Deckard, isn’t ready to hunt down some more replicants.
Callin’ my shot now… Gosling’s a replicant.
Then we have this….
All I’m going to ask is… Why? Fast and the Furious has the market cornered for over the top action sequences that make little to no sense in the name of action’s sake. Diesel, slow your roll, just be happy Fast and the Furious is still killing it at the box office, and be happy that your most meaningful role in a while consists of you only saying 3 words. (I AM GROOT!)
Now onto what looks to be an actual Oscar contender (Other than John Wick). Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception, Interstellar) will be directing Dunkirk, the story of the historical Operation Dynamo.This miraculous evacuation of Allied forces, seemed damned to fail. This movie looks GRITTY! I mean I feel like all of Christopher Nolan’s movies are shot in a darker tone, and more artistic nature. The movie stars Tom Hardy, a newcomer Harry Styles, and best of all my boy Tommy fuggin’ Shelby (Cillian Murphy). If you don’t know who Tommy Shelby is, drop what your doing and binge some Peaky Blinders. Educate Yo Self!
Looks like there won’t be any issues with the dreamscape and the space-time continuum to make this just another convoluted Nolan film.
