For those that love American Football, the big game’s here. Two teams face off for the biggest prize in the NFL and I’ve decided to stay up late to watch it.
But wait, I hear you saying… “This isn’t a sports blog… why the sports?” Well the Super Bowl’s a long game that’s watched by an average 111.9 million TV viewers (in 2016). That’s a lot of eyes watching and a great platform for anything your selling.
Enter the film industry and a whole host of new trailers. And now I’ll stop typing give the people what they want to see. Stay tuned and I’ll try to regularly update this post as and when the trailers get released.
‘Ghost in the Shell’
‘Transformers: The Last Knight’
‘John Wick: Chapter 2’
‘Gaurdians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2’
‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’
‘The Fate of the Furious’
‘A Cure for Wellness’
Keep checking in for more trailers as they hit!
So the 2nd trailer for Logan landed this week and this movie is living up to the hype. The fight scenes, the in jokes and swearing from Professor Xavier made this trailer everything I wanted and more. The first trailer revealed the dark future that Logan and Charles now live in, the X-men are gone, mutants are being hunted and the world is a darker place, similar to X-men: Days of Future Past but a lot worse.
The introduction of Laura, a clone created from the remnants of the Weapon X experiment adds the passing of the torch from Wolverine to her character could (and should) happen at the end of the film. Her evolution into the infamous “X23” who took the mantle of Wolverine in the Marvel comic universe.
The bleak trailer and setting signals the end of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and what a tenure its been. He took the character from the first X-men movie and evolved him over 17 years and 10 movies, taking his place as the original Wolverine. My hopes are high for X23 and the next generation of mutants, with the X-Force movie in the works the mutants can have a resurgence in future.
