Today Marvel released what I hope is the final trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie. The reason I hope it is the last is simply to much is to much. I love this trailer and it is the right amount to get me excited about this movie.
The music really gets you pumped. We see flying ships, amazing new costumes and T’Challa trying to figure how to become King and leader. T’Challa also has to deal with the return of a old enemy, played by Micheal B. Jordon.
This trailer alone gets me pumped for this movie and for more to come. I have a feeling that we maybe seeing the new leader of The Avengers.

I asked a few people their thoughts on this trailer:
The Angry Ginger, @s7evendaysageek:
Epic might be over used…but Holy Shit! So much eye candy I’m
almost positive Willy Wonka directed it.
So there you are folks the last trailer (well that is what they are saying) before the December 15th release. Like you I am looking forward to seeing the next chapter. Also like you I am hoping that we will see a new path. A different direction and not rewrite of ‘Empire’. If have to realized that like the original series 4,5,6 there has to be some struggle. The heroes can not win ever battle. So like the other movies do not be surprised that this movie does not end on a happy not. To tell a good story it has to. But please remember that just because it may have that ark does it not mean it is a rewrite of Empire or Attack of the Clones.
Try and enjoy it.

The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising.
John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.” Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld. But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war. As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.
Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left. Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

This is a fantastic little short film. I found it after I was watching another short film to talk about. But this film really grab me for it’s action and story. Take a few minutes and watch it. No matter who or where we are we all love Sci-Fi
In the not-too-distant future, a tenuous peace between humans and remarkably human-like “machines”—some don’t even know they’re not real—is tested when synthetics begin spontaneously exploding. A military-led search for these unwitting suicide bombers begins, sending a terrified machine woman and her human partner on the run. Directed by the talented Dassani brothers, Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani!

Netflix released two new images from the upcoming fourth season of Black Mirror. One of the photos show a episode show a Star Trek-inspired “USS Callister”. The second photo is from a episode called “Arkangel”. I still have to catch up on season three of this modern day “Twilight Zone” type serious. I found this series like most of you through word of mouth and what a find. The series is created and written by Charlie Brooker is incredible thought provoking and humorous series.
Black Mirror is an anthology series that taps into our collective unease with the modern world, with each stand-alone episode a sharp, suspenseful tale exploring themes of contemporary techno-paranoia leading to an unforgettable – and sometimes unsettling – conclusion. Without questioning it, technology has transformed all aspects of our lives; in every home; on every desk; in every palm – a plasma screen; a monitor; a Smartphone – a Black Mirror reflecting our 21st Century existence back at us. The series is created and written by Charlie Brooker, and executive produced by Brooker and Annabel Jones.
On the latest The Pop Culture Cafe Scott and I talk about this short film. If you are a fan of the “Ghost In The Shell” or “Appleseed” you may notice that some of the design of the robots have the look for these series.
On a post-apocalyptic Earth, Leila Dawn (Natalie Floyd), is the only human survivor. Raised by Robots after humanity abandoned the planet they destroyed with nuclear warfare, Leila cannot forget her parents nor ignore her yearning to find other organic life. A hunt she sets out on with Swat Team robot, Marker (Lex Cassar), leads Leila to discover a human disguised as Robot, Ray (Jake Lyall), and the reality she’s been denied-a reality that sparks her ultimate quest. PLUG is a short film from acclaimed science-fiction film art director, David Levy (Tron Legacy, Prometheus, Enders Game, Tomorrow Land). It is the first installment of Levy’s yet to be produced epic series/feature, which follows Leila on her quest to reunite with humanity and the impossible choices she must make about her allegiances – Human or Robot.
