Godzilla: King of the Monsters Releases Second Official Trailer

Last night, Warner Bros. released the second trailer of Godzilla: King of Monsters, set to hit theaters on May 31st, 2019. According to the trailer, creatures have been hiding around the world for thousands of years. These monsters, known as Titans, are the rightful rulers of planet Earth and are the only ones that can save it now. The world must find them and figure out which ones are there to protect the citizens and which ones are there to harm them. However, let’s just see how many of the Titans you were able to find in the trailer.

  • Rodan: Around the 40-second marker, a giant Pterodactyl (or Pteranodon) emerges from what looks like a volcano. This Titan is called Rodan and was last seen to be on a volcano in Isla de Mona, Mexico. Rodan has an atomic heat ray, life absorption, radioactive mist, and a uranium heat beam that shoots out of his mouth.
  • King Ghidorah: Also known as Monster Zone, King Ghidorah is a large three-headed dragon that wreaks havoc on Washington, D.C. in the trailer and can also be seen buried behind a block of ice. He has a bio-electric nature that allows him to carry electric currents through his body and generate lightning, thunder, and hurricane winds. Ghidorah can also fly and shoot gravity beams from his mouth.
  • Mothra: In the film, it looks like the giant moth goddess is unfurling her wings and rising from her resting place in China to fight. The goddess has supersonic flight, reflective scales, antenna beams, poisonous stingers, and immortality. We can expect to see her in her larva and full-grown stages in the film.
  • Godzilla: Long live the king. Godzilla is seen in the trailer taking on Ghidorah in the Arctic. The king is 300-feet tall and seems small in comparison to the 500-foot Ghidorah, but it looks like Godzilla is the world’s last hope.
  • Angurius: Seen coming out of the mountains, Angurius is large, dinosaur-type Titan with a long snout and sharp spikes. Unlike other Titans, Angurius does not have any energy attacks and instead tends to hurl himself backward at his enemies.
  • Sasori Monster: At the 45-second marker, we see what looks like a scorpion emerging from the desert sands. This monster could be the notorious Sasori Monster. This scorpion-looking Titan has two claws and six legs as well as a scorpion stinger, eight eyes, and spiky body armor.

First Look at Live-Action Sonic the Hedgehog

Yesterday, Paramount released a motion-action poster for the Sonic the Hedgehog live-action movie via Twitter. This is our first glimpse at the character adapted for television and features some updates to our favorite superhero hedgehog. He has realistic fur, which is understandable for a hedgehog but also quite different from the static hair that we see in the video games. Sonic also has updated kicks that bring his video game shoes into the 21st century. However, in the motion-action poster, we see him speeding around and collecting rings, which brings us back to the true heart and soul of the character.

Sonic the Hedgehog is expected to hit theaters on November 15th, 2019.

Netflix Gives us the First Look at Carmen Sandiego

Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Pretty soon, she’ll be making her new home on Netflix. The streaming service is bringing back the classic animated series with 20 22-minute long episodes, featuring Gina Rodriguez as the international thief, Carmen Sandiego and Stranger Things’ Finn Wolfhard as Carmen’s sidekick, Player.

Yesterday, Netflix released the first poster for the series, which gave us the first glimpse of the red-clothed mastermind. According to Netflix’s tweet, Carmen Sandiego will head to Netflix on January 18th.

Netflix is also working on a live-action film that will also star Rodriguez. The movie has been described as a “standalone Carmen adventure that will embrace the beloved ‘90s property”.

Everything is Awesome this Christmas with The Lego Movie 2

In November, we received the first trailer for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. However, now, the film has released a LEGO Movie Short just in time for the holiday season. Although the short doesn’t give many details about the movie, it is a warm and cheerful present from the studios that will bring some smiles and joy to all their fans.

The short starts with happy-go-lucky Emmet wandering around Apocalypseburg and spreading holiday cheer. He then takes Lucy on a journey to plan a Christmas party complete with Wonder Woman decorating the tree with her Lasso of Truth, Batman drinking eggnog, and the Green Lantern lighting the Christmas lights. Celebrate the holiday season with The Lego Movie and see why everything is awesome.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second part will hit theaters February 2019.
