Cinemacon Goodies

Site Disruption

Apologies for the vanishing content and pause in posting.

Something untoward occurred on our web server and we rolled back. Like time travel but much less fun.

Night Sky Trailer

This trailer made us smile. The idea of a couple (J.K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek) finding a chamber buried in their yard which contains a portal to another planet is unqestionably sci-fi but not intrinsically remarkable.

Then they keep the secret just between them. Regularly visiting to enjoy the scenery from the room on the other end.

TTT's Wife Trailer

HBO have released the trailer for their upcoming series The Time Traveler's Wife.

There's considerably more action (i.e. violence) in the trailer than we would have guessed based on earlier impressions but that surrounds the time traveler (Theo James).

It's laugh out loud good. We did several times but won't spoil any of the gags. Only recommend that you watch.

Spiderhead First Look

If you can't get enough of Chris Hemsworth, we wouldn't blame you, and this week the fickle gods of entertainment have been generous in first giving us a teaser for the next Thor film and also a first look at Netflix's Spiderhead.

By look unfortunately we don't mean footage but Entertainment Weekly has published some photos and an interview with the director and some of the cast.
