After some slight teases over the past couple of weeks, the folks at Ion have dropped the new Bond theme: “Writing’s on the Wall” by Sam Smith for the upcoming Spectre.
John suggested I post the new Creed trailer. After spending some time wondering how I am going to tastefully trash on the newest iteration of the Assassin’s Creed series, I was happy to find out we’re actually talking about the movie Creed, and my discomfort subsided.
Yesterday we got the first teaser for the next Netflix Marvel show: Jessica Jones, and it looks pretty slick. It doesn’t gives us anything in terms of story, but it definitely establishes a tone, what with the sultry music and artsy visuals. There appears to be a Netflix/Marvel “house style” on display here, as the teaser feels of a piece with the Daredevil materials we got around release time.
Continuing our (delayed) coverage of Disney’s D23 Expo, let’s take a look at all the goodies (or lack thereof) Marvel brought to the masses.
Disney’s D23 Expo (D23 is Disney’s fan club, referencing 1923, the year Walt Disney arrived in California and started his studio) came and went this past weekend, giving us some insights on upcoming Disney projects ranging from theme parks, to animation, to live action movies. This is exciting to us, because that means we got new details on new Marvel and Star Wars crap coming down the pipe. As neither Gedge or I were able (or willing) to attend the conference, here’s what we heard second hand.
Captain America: Civil War has made it’s way from Atlanta to Berlin, where they appear to be shooting some exciting exteriors with Cap, Bucky, and the Black Panther! Marvel hasn’t been as coy with the Black Panther as they have been with the newest iteration of Spider-Man, official announcing the casting of Chadwick Boseman and releasing concept art back in October, but it’s still pretty exciting to see the images of the very first live action adaptation of the character.
It looks like 2015 is going to be one of those rare years where the winter popcorn movie fare will equal, if not overshadow, the summer offerings. We’ve got a new Bond November 6th, a new Star Wars December 18th, and Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight on Christmas Day. I’ve been stoked for this one for while just because of promo stills, but today we get to see the facial hair in motion!
In anticipation of Disney’s D23 media conference this weekend, Entertainment Weekly has dropped a whole bunch of new pictures from the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We haven’t talked a ton about Star Wars on the podcast yet, but I can assure you that we will, and as we get closer to the release date, we’ll report on any cool news.
