Marvel Entertainment released the third and final trailer for the upcoming film Avengers Age of Ultron and it’s a doozy! However, don’t just take my word for it:
Yes, I realize that this went live yesterday but a hard-hitting case of the flu knocked a certain site admin off of his game for the past 24 hours.
Wow… there’s a lot to digest in this short two minute eighteen second burst of Marvel goodness. There’s plenty of creepy James Spader-voiced Ultron, some snippets of the two “Miracles” (because Fox has the rights to the term “mutants”) Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, some hits at a deepening relationship between Natasha Romanoff and Bruce Banner, and Tony Stark admitting that he created Ultron as a “suit of armor for the world.”
We’ve known for some time that the Marvel Cinematic Universe was going to play by its own rules in terms of continuity and events. Changes such as Nick Fury having never served in World War 2 or the absence of Dr. Donald Blake were par for the course when it came to condensing decades of comic book history into two hour cinematic blocks. However, it would seem that a major change is in store for Ant Man as Hank Pym is no longer the creator of Ultron. In addition, this could be the VERY reason that Tony Stark and Steve Rogers come to blows in Captain America 3: Civil War. (My money’s always on Cap, BTW.)
Regardless, May 1, 2015 cannot come soon enough for this Marvel fan!
The next 40 days until the debut of G.I. Joe Retaliation are going to be a whirlwind of activity in the media! New TV promotional spots, new viral advertising and, thanks to Paramount Pictures’ International YouTube Channel, a new trailer. Geared toward the Asian market, these new spots offer increased exposure for returning star Byung-hun Lee as Storm Shadow! As more footage is leaked it appears to be increasingly likely that Storm Shadow may end up on the “side of angels” after all. (Check out the kitchen sequence– both he and Colton appear to be in the same room!)
Here’s the trailer:
And the TV spot:
Is it March 29th yet? The more I see of this film, the more excited I get!
Okay, if you’re one of the G.I. Joe fans who can’t get enough of Retaliation you’ve probably contemplated going to see Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters this weekend to catch a glimpse of the brand new Joe trailer. However, you don’t have to wait until Friday… Break.com has posted a “preview of the preview” and JBL has mirrored it below:
Feast your eyes on the latest trailer for G.I. Joe Retaliation– hitting theatres on March 29, 2012!
Honestly, this is the strongest trailer yet– at least in my eyes. A few new shots of Snake Eyes and Jinx preparing for their mountain assault, a longer shot of the HISS tank, more Bruce Willis, and a “buddy cop” moment between Roadblock and Duke– something that was lacking in the previous previews. Plus, it looks like Zartan throws the gauntlet down to several world leaders– and gets a dig in at North Korea in the process. It’s a win-win!
I’ll leave the bulk of the commentary up to the internet but this trailer has me more excited about things that I was previously.
Feast your eyes on the awesomeness that contains HISS tanks, Cobra as “special forces units”, and more of Firefly, Cobra Commander, and Storm Shadow. Oh yeah, and apparently Roadblock has kids?!!
It’s a solid solid trailer! In all seriousness, this trailer looks to be miles ahead of anything that was released for Rise of Cobra in anticipation of that film’s release. Solid character portrays, minimal Channing Tatum exposure (who STILL manages to be the weakest part of the trailer), and some awesome looking action.
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra was a mixed bag for most fans. It was one of those films that had some familiar elements but still seemed to miss the mark in terms of overall feel and story. The sequel G.I. Joe: Retaliation seems to be having the opposite effect as fans and pundits alike can’t seem to stop talking about it in a VERY positive light– and the film hasn’t even hit yet!
That’s right, Joe fan– the super bowl trailer will drop on iTunes some time TODAY!!! Like most Joe fans, those of us at JBL HQ are going to be keeping our eyes peeled for new footage from what is turning out to be one of the summer’s most anticipated films!
