Let’s Go To The Movies!

Ah, the most wonderful time of the year! Well, for most people, not necessarily for me, the constantly-overheated workaholic! Ha! But, I digress, I do enjoy walking outdoors, gardening, going to New Orleans (which is hilarious given my discomfort in heated environments), and, of course, the summer movies and TV shows! 

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales and Wonder Woman have already premiered in theaters, so I’ve separated the trailers from the rest of the list:

Let me tell you, each of these movies were phenomenal in their own ways! I will admit I had some issues with Pirates, only, really, because they used Captain Jack as a comic relief instead of the eccentric hero he is. (You know, the line that’s drawn in the series: “Is Jack really lucky or really smart?”) BUT I completely, entirely, adore that they are continuing Will and Elizabeth’s story-line! I’m really hoping for a sixth installment!

Honestly, Guardians has been my most favorite thus far; I was thoroughly entertained and laughing throughout the movie! Especially at Drax! His straightforward phrases were perfectly timed and had me rolling in my chair!

Below are the movies I am looking forward to most this summer, with quick summaries as to why I’m looking forward to them. Of course, they’re not all the films premiering, but they are the ones that fit my taste and will have me first in line to catch a showing! Let me know in the comments which movies you’re looking forward to!

June 9 – The Mummy

I really am looking forward to this rendition, directed by Alex Kurtzman and starring Tom Cruise. The movie follow Cruise’s character, Nick Morton, a soldier, who somehow unearths a female mummy named Ahmanet, who proceeds to stalk him. Honestly there are so many things to be excited about. Honestly, there are so many things for me to be excited about with this movie!

First, Tom Cruise. I will always admire him; he does his own stunts, which truly is a feat given that he’s in action movies! Second, Sofia Boutella as Ahmanet. Lordy I love her in the trailer! I know I’m going to love her in the movie! (I’m also intrigued to see how they treat the Egyptian goddess’s mythology; will it be fictionalize or close to the established legends?) And third, of course, I know Alex Kurtzman to be the writer for Transformers, Sleepy Hollow, the J.J. Abrams’s Star Treks, and The Amazing Spider-Man. This will be the first movie I’ve seen directed by him, so I’m looking forward to what he can do!

June 23 – Transformers: The Last Knight

Speaking of Transformers, I CANNOT EVEN EXPLAIN HOW MANY FEELS I HAVE ABOUT THIS MOVIE AND IT’S NOT EVEN OUT YET! 

Ok. Now that I have that off my chest.

Honestly, I already know I’m going to have so much anguish about this movie. In part due to a fanfiction series I’ve been writing about Optimus and his human mate and I’m already having plot bunnies with how tortured they’re both going to be about this. I’m also praying to God that they don’t kill Optimus again. Remember that sixth sense I talk about, being a writer and movie geek? Yeah. I have a bad feeling about this movie and our beloved Autobot leader.

Still excited to see it though! (It will have to be delayed since I’ll be in New Orleans the weekend it premieres! AGH!)

June 30 – Despicable Me 3

I will always, always, always be excited to see my little joyful yellow Minions and their boss, Gru, get into trouble! Bonus: apparently Gru has a brother and wants to go on an evil adventure with him and his family! However, being the romantic sap I am, I’m just thrilled about seeing Gru, the girls, and Lucy Wilde further their development!

And for the Minions to steal the show!

August 7 – Spider-Man: Homecoming

Ok, guys. Don’t hate me for saying this: Spider-Man: Homecoming is the movie I am least excited for on this list. *holds up hands* NOW WAIT! Just because I’ve said that, it doesn’t mean I’m not excited to see it! Please, I’m always running to the theater for the latest Marvel movie!

Honestly, I haven’t given Tom Holland as Spider-Man much thought. Frankly, my heart is still mourning Andrew Garfield and his sass, and it probably always will. But, if anything is to be learned from the trailers and Spidey’s moment in Captain America: Civil War, I feel like I’ll enjoy Holland very much.

August 28 – The Dark Tower

Now this movie I know virtually nothing about. I have The Dark Tower and am hoping to read the first novel, at least, before this premieres. But, first, it’s Stephen King. It’s one of King’s most beloved stories. (My uncle, a man of great taste, is super thrilled for this adaptation.) And, second, Idris Elba. Need I say more?


Again, let me know in the comments which summer movies you’re most excited for, whether they’re ones on this list or others! And don’t forget, fangirls and fanboys, about the Fear The Walking Dead season three premiere, tonight at 9PM on AMC!

Deadpool Partay + Castle RETURNS!

Earlier this evening I watched the Super Bowl Halftime with my family. OMG, being a long-time Coldplay fan, it was plain spectacular! The band (with Beyonce and Bruno Mars) did a phenomenal performance that was also aesthetically pleasing. Hey, I mean, that’s what I expect from one of my favorite musicians; their concerts are always so… just… awesome. And the Super Bowl gave every audience member, near and far, that sense.

This week on Promos & Trailers (P&T) is another week where things are just continuing, TV show wise–EXCEPT Castle will be back on Mondays at 10P (ET)! I’m also excited to see the movies that premiere this Valentine’s Day weekend. I mean, come on guys: Deadpool is the ultimate date movie (*wink*)


Movies:

Deadpool
Honestly, I don’t know much about Deadpool canon, beyond random posts on Tumblr with him hanging with Spidey and outwitting bad guys in an extremely sarcastic nature. However, it was love at first sight. And I am definitely headed to this movie this weekend. Plus, he’s Marvel. And I will always go to a new Marvel movie. Always.

Genre: Action-Adventure
Rating: R
Director: Tim Miller
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Gina Carano, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein
Plot: Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is a former Special Forces operative who now works as a mercenary. His world comes crashing down when the evil Ajax (Ed Skrein) tortures, disfigures and transforms him into Deadpool. The rogue experiment leaves Deadpool with accelerated healing powers and a twisted sense of humor. With help from mutant allies Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Colossus (Stefan Kapicic), Deadpool uses his new skills to hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Zoolander 2
Oh lord. I was practically raised on Zoolander so there’s no doubt in my mind: I’m going. I have to visit my lifelong friends: Derek Zoolander and Hansel. (Hansel’s my faaaave…*hugs*) Bonus points: Ben Stiller directed Zoolander 2. Ever since I watched Secret Life of Walter Mitty (one of my favorite movies of all time that he directed), I will always go see a Ben Stiller-directed movie.

Genre: Comedy
Rating: PG-13
Director: Ben Stiller
Cast: Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig.
Plot: Models Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson) must stop a conspiracy to kill the world’s most beautiful people.


TV Promos:

Downton Abbey @9P – PBS (ET)
Well, good news, friends, is that Lord Grantham is alive and well! Yes, we’re still on the drama train (as with every Downton episode) but at least he didn’t die. That, absolutely, would’ve been crushing. Hope he’s out of the clear. Also I’m beginning to feel sympathy for Barrow… which is… understandable… but weird.

Mercy Street @ 10P – PBS(ET)
Now this is a show I haven’t mentioned before but is due for a recommendation. Mom and I have been watching it for a few weeks now and each time it keeps getting better and better. For any of you history buffs out there who love Civil War era (especially Union vs Confederate drama with some slavery themes mixed in), it’s definitely a good show to check out. Also it’s based off of actual events and diary accounts of what went on inside this Union hospital.

CASTLE!!! @10P – ABC (ET)
Ahhhh! You guys! Castle is finally back! This is the TV show I am most excited about this week. I always love watching what new antics Caskett gets into (especially Rick since I aim to have a similar writing career as him–that and we’re personality twins). But OMG Castle fans! I’m so excited to see our beloved couple back together again! AHH!

Supernatural @ 9P – CW (ET)
I mean, yeah, let’s face it guys and dolls, I’m a Hunter through and through. So Supernatural’s going to be on each Promos & Trailers post. I look forward to it every week. This week’s promo cracks me up though. Things are getting pretty hot and heavy for the boys this Valentine’s day (*wink*)

Criminal Minds @ 9P (ET) – CBS

Whoa… just whoa… so I just came across this article when looking into 11×14’s “Hostage.” Apparently the BAU hunts down a man who is kidnapping little girls, and the episode itself is based off of the kidnappings that took place in Cleveland — it especially reflects the story of Amanda Berry and Ariel Castro. Well, I mean, the episodes of Criminal Minds are all based on true stories, in some form or another, so it’s no wonder this story was going to come up. Just… wow though. I mean, that case was all the news stations here in Northeast Ohio. So I’m curious to see how the story compares, and how this episode is. Kids in horror stories are creepy as hell.
