Beware My Power
Posted By:

Warner Bros. have released a trailer for their upcoming animated film, Green Lantern: Beware My Power.

"Beware my power" is feistier language than we typically hear from hero types but derives from the standard Green Lantern oath.

Super Pets Trailer
Posted By:

DC may be second fiddle in the superhero business but they're not rolling over and playing dead as Doctor Strange does his multiverse thing this week.

Instead, they're rolling out the pets and trying to bowl you over with puppy power giving us their second DC League of Super-Pets trailer.

All eyes being on Star Wars and Doctor Strange this week, many might regard it as not the best time to put out a trailer.

But what about a "special look"? Does that grab your attention?

Star Wars & Oz Politics
Posted By:

It's an interminably slow news week courtesy of a few of the big players dominating the field so please forgive us for sinking into the murky realms of politics.

The Australian Labor Party yesterday tweeted three Star Wars themed campaign images to coincide with the Star Wars May the 4th (as in may the force with be you) celebrations.

Paramount UK Rollout
Posted By:

Paramount's rollout in Europe proceeds but possibly not optimally.

Sci-fi fans would likely be aware that Star Trek is one of Paramount's key properties and that Strange New Worlds premiere's today globally. But Paramount+ won't launch in the UK and Ireland until June 22.

While it's a bit of real sci-fi news blackhole so far this week - it just doesn't make sense to compete for attention with the likes of Star Wars (May the 4th celebration) and Marvel (Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness cinema release) - Star Trek have thrown their hat into the ring and aren't giving up easily.

The 4th is With Us
Posted By:

This being May the 4th (as in, may the force with you), the Star Wars folk have dropped another trailer for upcoming series Obi-Wan Kenobi and also two character pack DLCs for recently released LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga.

The trailer is fine as trailers go but unlike their March teaser fails to evoke the Star Wars spirit.

The Age have published an interview with Shelley Parker-Chan, the first Australian to be nominated for a Hugo award - two actually, Best Novel and Best New Writer. She Who Became the Sun is their first novel.
