I would bet that work productivity ground to a halt around 8am Wednesday morning, because that's when Marvel Studios dropped the much-anticipated trailer for Avengers: Infinity War. I hope you stretched because watching, even this professional and veteran blerd sprained her fangirl. I am shook!
Avengers: Infinity War stars a boatload of stars, pulling in fan favorite characters from all their franchises. Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chadwick Boseman, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland and more all join forces to defeat the supremely evil Thanos.
According to Marvel, Thanos, a intergalactic warmonger, is closer to reaching his goal of collecting all six infinity stones (a running theme throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe), which threatens the universe's very existence.
Such high stakes requires a bleaker tone and plenty of facial hair, and the Russo brothers did not disappoint. "There was an idea to bring together a group of remarkable people...so we could fight the battles," Nick Fury and Tony Stark begin, citing the beginning of the Avengers themselves with a marked and pearl-clutching finality. The trailer (below) is mind-blowingly fantastic, and as usual, I have questions.
I may have sprained my fangirl muscles this week, and Comic-Con hasn't even begun yet.
One of the major reasons for my flailing is Entertainment Weekly's exclusive first look and Saturday's release of the phenomenal teaser trailer for A Wrinkle In Time at the D23 Expo, directed by the Oscar and now Emmy-nominated Ava DuVernay (Note: The 13th director and Queen Sugar director is always courting greatness, and by helming this film, she became the first black woman to direct a movie with a budget over $100 million).
A Wrinkle In Time, Disney's theatrical adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's award-winning science-fiction novel, follows a young girl though space and time on a journey to rescue her father from the enigmatic darkness.
If you're one of the many sweating your 'do out this weekend, you can blame it on the release of the teaser trailer for Marvel's most-anticipated new franchise, Black Panther because it is straight fire.
If you had Saturday morning plans that were abruptly canceled, it might be because DC just dropped the first full-length trailer for Justice League. Let the analysis and hunting for Easter Eggs begin!
I fully admit that this Small Screen Girl is a ride-or-die Marvel girl who believes DC’s strength lies in its television shows as long as Zack Snyder is at the helm of the films. Yet I was riveted by the trailer, particularly by all things Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).
Like most of DC’s contributions to the superhero cinematic world, I have questions...
Marvel released the new trailer for the 2017's Guardian's Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 earlier this week, and the extended clip features Chris Pratt's Peter Quill, his band of crime-fighting extraterrestrials, some sweet '80s tunes, and a Baby Groot fresh from the pot.
After multiple viewings, I can't decide if Baby Groot, who is still voiced by the gravel-throated Vin Diesel, is cool or too cutesy.
It’s clear that I have a small obsession with trailers of any kind. Like newborn babies, they are brimming with possibility and offer glimpses of brilliance. This year’s crop from San Diego Comic-Con are ripe with humor, adventure, CGI and those tremulous sonic tuba farts that resonate in your chest and crank up the thrill-factor.
Since Comic-con is all about the synergy of entertainment, spectacle and marketing, so let’s see how the biggest movie trailers stack up against each other. Check out my grades for the previews for Wonder Woman, King Arthur: Legend of The Sword and more…
Admittedly, the state of movies thus far in 2016 has left a lot to be desired unless you prefer your outings to the cinema to contain capes, slaptstick comedy or CGI animals.
Thankfully, we’re entering into the back end of the year when movies become more sophisticated in order to court the attention of a very selective award named Oscar.
The trailer for the dramatic biopic, Loving was released this week, and it is nothing sort of heart-stirring. A romantic epic with a painfully timely civil rights spin, Loving tells the true story of a Virginia interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving who fought for the right to marry in the 1960s. A nearly unrecognizable Joel Edgerton (Black Mass) and Ruth Negga (Preacher) star in a film that not only won the posh hearts of Cannes Film Festival, and had this blogger reaching for the tissues.
Loving boasts that “some love stories can change the world.” And if the movie, set to hit theaters this November, lives up to its preview, it just may do the same. It’s simple and yet drips with a tempered grandeur as Edgerton and Negga, the southern setting, and the sweeping score marry into something that feels extraordinary, lovely and necessary.

This Small Screen Girl has massive expectations for the upcoming blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War. Like The Winter Soldier, Civil War’s timing feels oddly perfect now that the country trapped in the ‘this isn’t funny anymore’ shenanigans of the current presidential election. And it's almost poetic that a superhero that represents truth, justice and the American way will have to battle former friends for the greater good.
In Civil War, the divide arises when a governmental oversight committee is proposes to keep superheroes in check. Tony Stark is ironically a huge champion for it, and Steve is not. The Avenges begin to secede to their respective camps.
While Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) boasts a kickass suit and bizarrely complicated facial hair, I can’t think of one reason to side with Team Iron Man. Sorry not sorry.
Here are 6 reasons why everyone should be #TeamCap...
The best thing about the Super Bowl is that there is something for everyone. If you don’t care for the sports ball game than there’s the half-time show. If Bruno Mars or Coldplay isn’t your thing, then there are the glorious commercials or more importantly, the new movie trailers! Teaser spots for Jason Bourne, Captain America: Civil War and more aired during the big game...
On Sunday, the trailer for “Independence Day: Resurgence” invaded the internet, and didn't necessarily break it. Resurgence is theWill Smith-less follow-up to the 1996 alien invasion movie with now iconic White-House demolishing special effects. Honestly, the trailer is genuinely intriguing with a methodical and dramatic imagery overlayed with a heavy, dragging beat—eerie aliens skulls, airport hangers, astronauts in peril, former President Whitmore now a haunted, white-bearded old man. It manages to convert most of my skepticism to curiosity. But it’s not epic enough to cover the glaring absence of Will Smith (his character, Col. Steven Hiller, died in on a test flight after a technical malfunction in 2007, EW.com reports).
In the two decades since the first alien invasion, the world used purloined alien technology to build an “immense defense program to protect the planet,” according to the movie's official description. However, a second invasion finds them to be an “unprecedented force.”
New characters will join stars Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman and Vivica A. Fox in order to save the world, including Jesse Usher as Will Smith’s Steven Hiller’s grown son, and “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2’s” Liam Hemsworth. Hemsworth may be nice on the eyes, but there is no universe where he can match Smith’s charisma and presence.
