Jessica Jones Stuns With New Netflix Trailer

Netflix-releases-new-logo-for

It won’t be long before Jessica Jones makes its way into the Netflix catalog as the next show in Marvel’s Defender series. With all the anticipation, you just know there’s gonna be a follow-up trailer to really give fans a better look at what’s to come. And fortunately for us, we got one today.

The new trailer is a stark opposite from the initial teaser. The new trailer leaves much less to be desired with extended looks at all the major characters including Luke Cage(Mike Colter), The Purple Man (David Tennant), and of course Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) herself. Without going any further and spoiling anything else just take a look at the trailer.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what this series has to offer. Daredevil started off strong and I expect Jessica Jones to hit the ground running and pick up where its contemporary left off.

Watch all episodes of Marvel’s Jessica Jones November 20 on Netflix

Daredevil Season Two Teaser!!!

daredevil-on-netflix

The Man without fear is coming back soon and it looks like there is nothing holding back the fans from seeing what is to come next. What started off as a grainy video leak from this weekend’s New York Comic-Con turned into a high quality full length teaser not even 24 hours after the initial leak. It’s all over and now it is here for your viewing pleasure.

True to the “teaser” moniker there’s not much to see, but still plenty to get excited over. The glimpses of some of the new cast of characters should serve well to entice people to tune in to the second season of what is already considered one of the best shows on Netflix and quite possibly the best live-action adaptation of any superhero. Although no one knows if the upcoming season will be enough to top the first, there is no doubt that the hype as already started so I guess it’s up to them to live up to it (I don’t think they’ll have any trouble with that).

That’s right! The Hollywood Reporter confirms fan favorite Paul Monroe (aka Jesus) will appear in season six of AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Tom Payne will grace the screen as the familiar character whose debut came in issue 91 of Tom+Payne+Physician+Premieres+Vienna+oGr56KDxYTnlRobert Kirkman’s Walking Dead comic book. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Payne’s work, check out the short-lived HBO series Luck where he plays Leon Micheaux (it’s quite the series and he’s very good in it).

It stands to reason that if Jesus is gonna come in for The Walking Dead’s sixth season (and stick around for the seventh as rumored), then there’s no doubt that fans will see a certain antagonist with his trusty barbed-wire bat very soon as well. But for right now, we’ll definitely settle for Jesus character who is being described as “a rare logical man and skilled adviser with a strong sense of morals and values who is well-adapted to the new world.”

AMC’s The Walking Dead will return for season six on Sunday, October 11 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with a special 90-minute premiere episode.

Rick and Morty: From The Staff

rick-and-morty-season-2

So, around this time every Sunday I’m usually winding down. Maybe get a nice workout in (it’s actually not very nice), get a shower, and prepare a good dinner (mostly cold cereal). Guess you can say my evenings can get a bit crazy right? Afterwards, I settle in and prepare to watch one of my favorite shows on television in Rick and Morty before the nights end… except last week that didn’t happen. Last week Rick and Morty saw a break at the halfway mark through its second season on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. Needless to say, my night was underwhelming after that. Now some of you are thinking “What’s so great about Rick and Morty?” or something similar. Well, for those who have been living under a rock or are still on the fence about it, let’s dive right in shall we?


Rick and Morty is an Adult Swim original created by Dan Harmon (Community) and Justin Roiland (Fish Hooks, Adventure Time). The show’s most titular characters are of course Rick; the brilliant, but sociopathologic scientist and Morty; the unassuming and anxiety riddled teenage grandson (both voiced by Justin Roiland). After being absent for 20 years, Rick has returned to move in with his daughter Beth son-in-law Jerry and has turned their garage into his own crazy lab for his experiments and adventures. Now that He’s back, Rick takes Morty (and recently Morty’s sister Summer) on adventures through time and space.


rick-and-morty-eyes

Rick himself is one of the funniest character the show has from week to week. His crass humor and stark delivery makes his interactions with any character a treat. Every situation that he finds himself in is never too much to handle and Morty, while apprehensive and easily shaken at the beginning, has started to slowly take on his grandfathers demeanor (although it never stops them from butting heads). Summer seemed like your run-of-the-mill 17-year-old with annoying drama and constant angst, but after her experiences with Rick and Morty, she is changing in her own right as she is experiencing more of what her younger brother has already become desensitized to. Their adventures intertwine a lot later in the first season and have become common throughout the second season. Beth and Jerry seem to have their own dealings away from the rest of the family and deal with more menial issues comparatively. Despite the fact that their adventures look much less interesting on the surface, more times than not they can be just as funny and entertaining.

Now this is not your normal late-night animation. The jokes are frequent, but are often clever and done with a purpose other Screen-shot-2014-01-21-at-10.03.59-AMthan humor. Nothing is one note as there are always multiple stories going on from episode to episode. While other shows use multiple stories, they often fall flat and only serve to fill time with no substance. Characters often don’t change or do so only when the plot requires them to be reminded of it. Things go back to the same every week. With Rick and Morty, that isn’t the case. Things happen to people. And they change, for better or worse. Emotions get the best of the characters. Situations don’t work out and you see how that affects the characters and the decisions they make in future episodes. The audience can still see some of the humor coming from a mile away. What they don’t see is that sometimes the jokes can be accompanied by some true and heavy introspective moments that can turn a hearty laugh from viewers into a somber silence.


Rick and Morty is always good for a solid laugh. It is also good for a deep look into the vices that plague many in real life. It serves as a reminder that even a show that goes so far out of the norm in art and story and one that is set in an outrageously different universe, can make relevant and invoke seminal emotions in scenarios that show characters (and as an extension, real life people) as complex beings. Rick and Morty is back this Sunday and I couldn’t be happier. For those of you haven’t seen it or don’t get it, just check it out once or twice. You may laugh. You may even cry. Or you may just hate it. Either way, it won’t kill you to give it a look.

Rick and Morty returns tonight and catch new episodes every Sunday at 11:30 pm EST / 10:30 pm CT on Cartoon Network

Deadpool Trailer Debut’s Next Tuesday

deadpool-cine3d-3

It was mentioned that a trailer for Fox’s Deadpool was shown at this past San Diego Comic-Con to an immensely positive reaction (it even garnered an encore showing). While many were hoping for an official release soon after, Fox wasn’t so quick to give it too the public. They wanted to make sure it was a proper release suitable for the fans, so a three-week wait was what we all got… and now that wait will soon be over.

On Tuesday, August 4, the first official trailer will air during TBS’s Conan. Now, this will be the more explicit red-band trailer, which will be sure to stay true to its R rating. A second trailer will be a bit more family friendly with the green-band trailer set to show with the release of Fantastic Four on August 7.

Whatever they had to clean up for the big release should be worth the wait with the reaction the first trailer received. Can’t wait for the debut, and you can catch it here as soon as it drops this upcoming Tuesday.
