The ‘Moon Knight’ Trailer Is Here and It Is Delightfully Interesting

Yeah, the Moon Knight trailer is here and I’ve got to say, I have it up there with Loki on my EXCITED list for a Disney+ series. For now, Loki is still the series I was most excited about after its trailer mainly because, well, I knew the title character. I still have roughly no idea about Marc Spector or Moon Knight or the intriguing and apparent supernatural corner of the MCU he inhabits. I’m also quite not over the fact that Poe’s about to be a superhero, even though I know Oscar Isaac has the acting chops to pull this role off and Sarah Halley Finn hasn’t failed yet at casting.

We’re Finally Getting That ‘Moon Knight’ Trailer Tomorrow Night!

Well folks, it’s time. The Moon Knight trailer drops tomorrow night during Monday Night Football and I honestly couldn’t be more excited. Here’s the teaser.

Very, very cool. Ahead of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness this series feels like the perfect show to get us in the mood for something a bit darker.

I love the aesthetic of this show and I’m really digging the slightly scary atmosphere of this series. It’s already been rumored that this will be one of the most mature installments in the MCU which already sounds perfect considering that Moon Knight’s story is very mature. To water him down would be a bit unfortunate.

Hopefully, the trailer will announce that the series will be coming out sometime in March and not April. 🤞

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Where Is the ‘Moon Knight’ Trailer?

Okay, I’ve got to admit, I’ve been a bit spoiled because of the wealth of content Marvel Studios gave us last year. It began last January when we got WandaVision for eight weeks. Since then, it’s been a constant cycle of Marvel shows and movies and now…well, I’m really looking forward to Moon Knight.

The Book of Boba Fett‘s last episode premieres on February 9. That means we’ll most likely be getting Moon Knight in March, which also means we should be getting the trailer sooner rather than later.

I’m trying not to feel impatient but I’m just so excited for Moon Knight. This is a brand-new character that I have no idea about and yet from what I have learned he seems very, very cool. From the outfit to the wealth of intriguing baddies, this is a story that I want to see conceived on the small screen because I think Marvel Studios is about to give us one of the most interesting origin stories in the franchise.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.

I’m Still Not Over ‘Dune’

Some are calling Dune a “masterpiece.” I cannot say it’s a masterpiece because as of right now, it’s incomplete. What I can say is it’s incredibly cinematic; a jaw-dropping achievement in the art of epic movie making. It’s been a while since I’ve watched a film with this much scale. A film designed for the biggest screen possible so the movie can absolutely overwhelm your senses for two and a half hours straight.

For the first hour of the film, I remember thinking to myself on many occasions, “This is fire.” After seeing the first film, which is handled with such wanton confusion despite its dizzying amount of exposition, I could see the similarities being ironed out, allowing for a much smoother process of a storyline. In fact, as I watched the film’s first half play out, the movie itself felt very much like a book happening onscreen.

The screenplay is phenomenal, moving along at its own pace as Villeneuve’s otherworldly vision of Dune came to life along with Hans Zimmer’s mesmerizing score that I’m listening to at this very moment while I write this.

Like I said before, this is no masterpiece but wow was I impressed. I found myself also appreciating it far more than the last three Star Wars movies (The Last Jedi, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and The Rise of Skywalker.) Star Wars has become such a phenomenon that people have become lazy with the material, providing generic looks at a franchise that is, in essence, as epic as Dune. Filmmakers, however, have turned Star Wars into a joke; a tale for children with cool lightsabers that make awesome noises and the simply bland heroes-versus-villains tales that keep being told over and over again in unimaginative ways.

I miss looking at Star Wars and feeling like the directors actually care about giving us something epic to look at. Not just ideas that will be crafted into a wave of new toys (like the Sith Troopers) or a new ride at a Disney theme park (like Rise of the Resistance.)

I also haven’t been this blown away by a cast too. Despite the wave of A-listers that joined this movie they don’t feel out of place. In fact, Villeneuve gives them new lanes to shine in. He utilizes every actor for their personal strengths and uses them to perfection.

‘Dune’: A Fantastical Prologue But That’s All It Is

When I walked out of my local theater after having just watched Dune I was blown away from what I had just seen. Of course, that’s what Villeneuve intended. He wanted viewers to watch his film and be left gobsmacked and yeah, he succeeded.

Dune isn’t the best science-fiction film I’ve ever seen but it’s undoubtedly one of the most memorable. Villeneuve doesn’t make this film like most moviemakers. He takes his time like directors of old, letting his story build upon an epic narrative that–if executed correctly– could be something truly exciting.

The cast and beautifully conceptualized world-building is the best thing about this film. My favorite characters were Oscar Isaac’s Duke Leto Atreides and Sharon Duncan Brewster’s Liet Kynes. If you’ve seen the film, well, oops.

The Official Trailer for ‘Dune’ Is Here!

It’s getting closer. Dune‘s time is almost upon us and I know for a fact it’s going to be one of the biggest events of the year. The official trailer dropped today and here’s a note; if you’d rather stay in the dark about the story then I really would refrain from watching this trailer because it shows a lot. But nevertheless, here’s the official trailer for Dune.

Epic. That’s all I can think when I see this trailer. It’s going to be an epic experience in IMAX. One that will remain in my heart for years to come.

I’m glad I watched the old Dune movie from 1984 because I can actually look at this and see things that I recognize which is really exciting, to be honest. This looks like a faithful reboot of a story that deserves to be seen on the big screen these days.

The hype is real.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
