Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One (Movie Trailer)

If you’re wondering how Steven Spielberg will bring the dystopian, VR-heavy world of Ready Player One to life, you can get your first real glimpse in the trailer (technically, a teaser for San Diego Comic Con) above.


The film is based on Ernest Cline’s novel — a book that’s been recommended to me many times as one of the best depictions of virtual reality and gaming in fiction. (Sorry, I still haven’t read it!)

One of the story’s main elements is a virtual world called OASIS. What we see of OASIS in the trailer might not feel terribly visually distinctive, but it certainly looks fun and flashy, throwing together a hodgepodge of pop culture references.

Spielberg discussed the film at Comic Con, where he described it as “the most amazing flash-forward and flashback at the same time about a decade I was very involved in, the ’80s, and a flash-forward to a future that is awaiting all of us, whether we like it or not.”

New Blade Runner 2049 Trailer Shows More of The Dirty, Desperate Future

BLADE RUNNER 2049 – Trailer 2




We get a bunch of new footage from the hotly anticipated sequel to Ridley Scott’s dystopian sci-fi classic. And Harrison Ford’s Deckard says something that’s potentially very important.


Previous glimpses have shown that Ryan Gosling’s Officer K has been tasked with finding Deckard. This new teaser hints at why. Thirty years after the first Blade Runner, the Los Angeles of 2049—or at least parts of it—looks hollowed out and haunted. That can also be said of just about every character with dialogue in this trailer. We’ll find out what they’re looking for when Blade Runner hits theaters on October 6.

Netflix CastleVania S1 Review

CastleVania on Netflix is Perfection!
I was excited when I heard this was happening but I never imagined it would be this good!
You know that feeling when you reach the last episode of a season and are like, "no no no don't stop now" well that is exactly what happened to me when the 4th episode of CastleVania ended.
Although this is an animated series based of the AAA video game franchise this is definitely not for children under 12!
I mistakenly let my 7 year old son sit and watch this with me, I let the burning at the stake scene pass but then the bar fight with the nut shot, the dislodged eyeball scene was when I decided I was gonna have to wait till the kids were asleep before I could watch this.
The series wisely begins with the CastleVania III Dracula's Curse Story line and accurately retells the story from the game from the year 1476 to the location in Europe Wallachia.
The series art style, animation, writing and voice acting are all so well done it left me craving more!

I've played almost every CastleVania game since the original minus the portable ones so seeing this series turn out as amazingly as it has is equivalent to how great The Street Fighter animated movie turned out back in 1994!

Death Note | Official Trailer



What if you had the power to decide who lives and who dies?

We suggest you obey the rules. Based on the famous Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, Death Note follows a high school student who comes across a supernatural notebook, realizing it holds within it a great power; if the owner inscribes someone's name into it while picturing their face, he or she will die. Intoxicated with his new godlike abilities, the young man begins to kill those he deems unworthy of life.

BloodStained Ritual of the Night

The E3 trailer for Bloodstained Ritual of the Night just dropped and I have a good feeling this kickstarter might actually be the true spiritual successor to a classic game legacy (unlike what Mighty #9 turned out to be).
Igarashi was an assistant Director, Programmer and Writer of the legendary Symphony of the Night I have faith in IGA, if Bloodstained is half as good as SotN it'll still be 200% better than LoI.....

NETFLIX BLAME!

Watched Blame last night, visually it wasn't bad, the color pallet and character design reminded me of Knights of Sidonia (same production studio), but thankfully without the creepy elastic alien phallic creature! I really wasn't able to get emotionally vested in any of the characters, which apparently is true to the Manga....characters survive just as long in BLAME as in Game of Thrones and TWD. The environment in BLAME is supposed to instill a sense of dread, hopelessness and endlessness but I never felt that in this movie. Also the sound track didn't do anything for me either in fact I preferred the sound track from the ONA (below).
All in all the NETFLIX BLAME! movie by Polygon has the same sterile, muted visual style like Knights of Sedonia, with an underwhelming soundtrack and characters that you never get enough time or info to get invested in.... 

Blame felt like a hollow blend of The Matrix and Terminator 2. Visually it's good but it just felt longer than necessary.

Blade Runner 2049 First Trailer

Like I said at the beginning of the year 2017 is gonna put us in the poor house with all the amazing movies coming out this year, Ridley Scott has potentially 2 huge films this year with Prometheus and now Blade Runner 2049!


I'm on the fence about Jared Leto, I have confidence that Ridley Scott chose the right actors for the roles but I still have reservations.....I have a feeling Leto is playing a relative of Eldon Tryrell.
I love the aesthetic of the new film, it feels like the original based on this trailer, but also gives the impression that the world is going to be expanded upon.
It's cool to see that Atari is still sponsoring the Blade Runner franchise LMAO! I'm not even sure if Ridley Scott needed to get permission to use the Atari logo at this point, I'm not even sure who owns the trademark any more.
I guess Gaff was right when he said. "It's too bad she won't live...but then again who does" referring to Rachael because Sean Young is nowhere to be seen.
I'm really excited for this film because I have absolutely no idea what is going to happen the entire film is a mystery at this point and I love it!
I'm going to attempt to stay as spoiler free as possible!
