Star Trek: Beyond

Paramount was hoping to keep this one under wraps from all the stories I have been hearing. But once it was leaked on line, well you might as well just give in and show it. We have been bombarded we trailers the last little while and Paramount has jumped on the trailer train.

Directed by Justin Lin, Fast & Furious fame this trailer has the look and feel of of that franchise. This a Star Trek made for the this generation. Fast, quick and looking like very little story. Today’s younger audience attention span need quick and flashy to keep their attention.

Hey don’t get me wrong it looks like a fun popcorn movie and I will be going to see it. But is your a old time Star Trek fan I can see those fans hating this.

The script is  from nerd Simon Pegg and Star Trek fan.

X-Men: Apocalypse Official Trailer #1

Here is the first official trailer for Bryan Singer’s’ X-Men: Apocalypse.

This trailer is full of on iconic mutants. Mixing the old with the new, Jean Grey, Cyclops, Night crawler, Beast. Storm, Jubilee, Archangel, Mystique, Magneto and Psylocke and so many more. We also get our first glimpse of James McAvoy as the Professor X we all know.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.
