New Batman vs Superman Trailer from Comic-Con

The new trailer for Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice was released at Comic-Con this last week.  The trailer really lays out more of Batman's motivation for taking on Superman. It looks to be related to the fight between Superman and Zod that resulted in the destruction of the Wayne Financial building.  It has some good glimpses of Wonder Woman as well.  Lex Luthor seems a bit off to me, but it's early.

Anyway, here's the trailer.

New Suicide Squad Trailer from Comic-Con

Wow.  This new trailer for Suicide Squad really enhances the eeriness of this team.  Check it out.

New Doctor Who Trailer from Comic-Con

You can't have a discussion about the greatness of Science Fiction and Doctor Who not be a part of it.  Peter Capaldi is the 12th (or in some cases 13th) Doctor and this next season looks pretty gripping.  I wasn't wowed by last season, but the episodes did pick up before the end.  Now September is looking really good with fall episodes of TV favorites fitting into the schedule and this one is looking good.

Here is the trailer for the new season of Doctor Who on BBC One that was shown at Comic-Con in San Diego.

Axanar: A new Star Trek Possibility

Before there was James T. Kirk, the early Federation was put to the test in war against the Klingon Empire.  The hero of that conflict was Captain Garth (who later appeared in Star Trek TOS as a crazed ruler in "Who Gods Destroy").

This new fan fiction and crowdfunded effort to bring this new movie project to the big screen is underway.  So far, they have created a terrific background for the film in Prelude to Axanar: The Four Years War.

I am excited to see where this project may go and could lead to powerful war movie based in the Star Trek Universe.

RIP Sir Christopher Lee

Today is a sad day.  Another great actor with a storied career has shrugged off this mortal coil.  Sir Christopher Lee passed away today at the age of 93.  His career was filled with powerful roles and storied accolades.

His most well know for his antagonist roles.  Mr. Lee personified the role of the villain in many films.  He was The Man with the Golden Gun in the James Bond movie.

He was Dracula.

He was the infamous Count Dooku in the Star War prequels.

And lastly he was Saruman in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movie trilogies.

I could go on and on about his roles.  He has played Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes.  He played the role of Death and even Lucifer. His range, depth of understanding and presence will be missed in the acting world.  RIP Sir Christopher Lee.  Take a bow and enjoy your rest.  You've earned it.
