The new teaser trailer for the upcoming eighth mainline Star Wars film, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” was just released today during the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando. The trailer seems to hint at, among some other things, Rey’s Jedi training action, Finn recovering from his injuries from the prior film, some more space battles, more of Kylo Ren being emo, and a darker side of Luke Skywalker.
“Star Wars, Episode VIII: The Last Jedi” opens in theaters on December 15th, 2017.
Holy crap, this movie comes out in ONLY TWO MORE MONTHS?!?! AND Logan comes out THIS FRIDAY?!? AND Power Rangers in THREE WEEKS?!? AND Ghost in the Shell THE WEEK AFTER?!? Jeezus! Anyway, last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Chris Pratt stopped by to introduce a tease trailer — for the actual, full-length second trailer — for the upcoming theatrical addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and sequel to the surprise summer hit of 2014), Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. Once again, the universe needs saving and there’s no one more suited to the job than Marvel’s ragtag group of misfits.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, directed by James Gunn, hits theaters on May 5.
Hugh Jackman is reprising his role as Wolverine for the film, Logan, directed by James Mangold, however unlike previous Wolverine appearances, Jackman won’t be buffed up and ready to fight. This film is based on an eight-issue arc that ran in the main Wolverine series created by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven between 2008 and 2009 called Old Man Logan, featuring a version of a nomadic, older, less ferocious version of Wolverine, who’s suffering from chronic back pain and diminishing healing abilities.
Logan hits theaters on March 3rd, 2017.

At the Sonic the Hedgehog Birthday Celebration — which I’m required to write to further perpetuate the notion that The PractitioNERD secretly operates as a Sonic Fan Site — that happened at San Diego ComicCon 2016 this past week (which not only included celebrating the character’s 25th anniversary, sing-a-longs, a God-awful livestream — contrary to the better live experience on-location — and a merchandising crossover between Sonic the Hedgehog and Sanrio characters, like Hello Kitty), two new Sonic video games were officially announced. The first game that will celebrate the 25-year-old franchise will be Sonic Mania, in which the above trailer starts with an awesome remix of the end theme to the Genesis version of Sonic 3D Blast, and is slated for release in Spring 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Continue reading ‘Sonic Mania’ and ‘Project Sonic 2017’ to come out next year?! C’mon 2017; I’mmm Waaaitinnnng…
El Rey Network recently released a trailer for season two of Lucha Underground, and I must warn you all that’s it’s FULL of shocking, game-changing spoilers, so if you watch it, know that going in. Also, if you love the show and it’s first season, then watching this trailer may result in the crapping your pants. Figured I’d let you know; I’m looking out for you, internet… Continue reading The Lucha Underground Season 2 Trailer
Yeah, I know; this is the SECOND TMNT-related post this week. Plus, I noticed that there’s no “2” in the title; oh well. But seriously, since when did a recent Michael Bay production (mainly a sequel) have a number in the title? Anyway, I REALLY enjoyed this trailer; we got more of the Turtles and not as much Megan Fox as April O’Neil (but juuust enough…wink-wink), Shredder’s back….somehow (and re-cast), Gary Anthony Williams and current WWE Champion Sheamus as Bebob and Rocksteady (respectively), Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, and TYLER FREAKIN’ PERRY as Baxter Stockman. I actually enjoyed the first film (much to my own surprise; it was better than I expected and was better than it had any right to be), so hopefully Paramount doesn’t get TOO crazy with future trailers for this sequel; I think this ONE trailer is enough. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is out June 3rd, 2016.
