Morbius Is Here And It Looks Fangtastic

morbius

Everyone needs to stop what they’re doing this instant and watch the Morbius trailer.

Morbius is the new Marvel film we can expect from the Sony Marvel Universe (which is not to be confused with the MCU… Which Spider-Man is in). It’s about a doctor that is dying and is trying to cure his rare blood disease… But instead infects himself with vampirism.

Jared Leto as a vampire?… Sign. Us. Up.

In the trailer there are many easter eggs leading back to Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man movies.

Do you see what we see? This puts us post Spider-Man: Far From Home after *SPOILER ALERT* Mysterio tells the world that Peter Parker is Spider-Man and makes him out to be a villain.

Also, like. Vulture is literally in the trailer. That is a direct tie in. So like if Sony could give us Tom Holland, Tom Hardy, and Jared Leto in a movie together? … And then bring them all in a MCU movie together, that’d be great.

As a Marvel stan myself, it’s my theory that Sony/Marvel are creating their rendition on the Sinister Six but only time will tell. Until then you can find us watching this trailer on repeat.

Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments down below or on Twitter!

Sabrina Brings Chills With A Musical Trailer For Pt 3

Sabrina

Ladies and gents, we’re headed back to Greendale with Sabrina. We’ve been dying to go back. And good for that, because by the looks of the trailer we’re headed straight to hell. After the shocking twist in the season two finale, we’ve been going crazy wondering what’s going to happen next.

From the trailer above, we can tell that we’ve barley (Nicholas) scratched the surface on the crazy stuff about to go down. In the song, Sabrina sings about saving her love (Nicholas) from the devil. And she’s willing to pay whatever price she has to pay.

Also seen in the trailer, we can see that there will be lots and lots of new spells to be cast and seances to be done… So our only question is this:

What spell can we use to make it January 24th already?

WandaVision Just Got Bumped To A 2020 Release

WandaVision
MARVEL STANS ASSEMBLE!

We already knew that Disney+ was going to really bring it in 2020, but we didn’t realize how hard they were going to go.

Something that fans really anticipate from Disney+ is all of the Marvel shows that we’re going to be getting. Originally in 2020, Disney was just going to release The Falcon & The Winter Soldier. (Which you don’t understand how excited we are for.) And more shows would follow in the next few years. But Disney gave us quite the gift.

In the “What’s Coming to Disney+ in 2020″ trailer below, they announce that WandaVision is now slated for a 2020 release! The show was originally due to come out spring of 2021.

Not much is known about the WandaVision tv show because you know how Marvel is with their secrets. We just want to know what to expect cause… Well… Vision is dead. F*ck you, Thanos.

All we can 100% confirm is that Paul Bettney and Elizabeth Olsen will both be reprising their roles as Vision and Wanda. Other reprisals include Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis (Thor) and Randall Park back as Jimmy Woo (Ant-Man and the Wasp).

So basically, get ready. If you’re Marvel Stans like we are, you are going to be treated real good for the next few years. We’re still due for the Loki Series, What If, and Hawkeye.

Finally the sequel we have all been waiting for is almost here! A Quiet Place was a huge box office success in 2018. Since then, fans have been eagerly awaiting a sequel.

Details about the second movie have been kept quiet until this very moment.

From the trailer above, we can tell that it will serve as not only a sequel, but a prequel as well. We’ll see the start of the apocalypse as well as the aftermath of the death of Lee (John Krasinski) and the birth of the new baby.

We see that we’re also being introduced to new civilization and characters portrayed by Djimon Hounsou, Cillian Murphy, and many more!

Catch A Quiet Place 2 playing in a theater near you starting March 20th!

Movies To Look Forward To In 2020

2020 is going to be a huge year for the entertainment industry! Music, fashion, TV, and of course, movies! The new year hasn’t even really started yet and we’ve already got an all-star line up of movies that are going to make the next year so memorable!

The Year Of Bad-Ass Women

They said: “Superhero movies but make it bad-ass women.”

Next year it seems we’re getting the dose of Femme Fatal that we crave because our favorite women are back and ready to kick some ass. The first movie to come out of this gorgeous tri-Fecta is Birds Of Prey on February 7th.

Birds Of Prey: And The Fabulous Emancipation of Harley Quinn is set to follow Harley Quinn after her break-up with the Joker, which is where the subtitle comes from. This movie has been getting mixed reviews due to the Harley Quinn studded trailers but either way… We’ll be there for the first screening.

March 27th we get one of the most anticipated Disney live action movies, Mulan. Sure there’s no musical number, Shang, or Mushu. But we get to see a kick-ass woman bring honor to her family. We have high hopes.

Black Widow is next to come out on May 1st, and I think it’s safe to say that this is the movie we’ve been waiting for almost 10 years now. If anyone deserves their own stand alone-movie, it’s Natasha Romanoff. Marvel just wanted to twist the knife one more time. Oh and David Harbour is in it.

Wonder Woman 1984 comes out June 9th and we’re ready to see Gal Gadot in her element. She plays Diana with such elegant, poise, and edge, we cannot wait to see what else she brings. And her together with Chris Pine… *Chef’s Kiss*

Horror

Next year we’re getting our spooks in because we’re getting movie after movie. Starting January 3rd with The Grudge.

The Grudge that is set to release is a reboot of the original movies. It stars Harold and Kumar‘s, John Cho. However, this movie will be far from funny. As we can see from the trailer and poster it will feature the iconic shower scene… Which is unsettling enough.

Next, we have The Turning, which comes out January 24th. This movie is a modern take on the book and movie The Turning of The Screw. It stars our generations‘ price of darkness, Finn Wolfhard, along with Mackenzie Davis.

A Quiet Place 2 comes out March 20th, and we’re already holding in our screams. The first movie was a surprise box office smash, so naturally a second one had to be made.

Alas, Halloween Kills is set to release this year. It serves as a direct sequel to the 2018 Halloween movie. Of course, starring queen Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie as she yet again, battles Michael. This time around she gives no fear and is ready to protect her family at all costs. We stan.

Family

There are so many family flicks coming to the big screen next year so get the kiddo’s ready!

RDJ is back in theaters January 17th but this time as Dr. Dolittle. Dolittle takes place in 19th-century England (so he has an accent), having Dolittle and his creature friends on a mission to get a cure for a sickness that the Queen has.

Sonic The Hedgehog is a movie that’s centered around quite the controversy. After being pushed back due to fan backlash to the original design, it’s back and ready for release on Valentines day. Though the new design is 1000% better, people are still hesitant. If you need a reason to go see it, here’s one: Jim Carrey.

Next for release is SCOOB!, which seems to be a quite animation of how Shaggy and Scooby became best friends to them being abducted by aliens. This looks like the cute family film it’s meant to be. We just have one small complaint, and that’s Matthew Lillard isn’t the voice of Shaggy… But we’ll still be there!

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the next installment in the OG Ghostbusters saga. Featuring (no surprise here) Finn Wolfhard, the amazing Paul Rudd, and up-and-coming star McKenna Grace. July 11th we’ll see Finn and McKenna vs Ghosts. Sign us up!

Action / Adventure

2020 is going to be action packed!

To start the year off right, we get a ‘sequel’ we’ve been waiting for, Bad Boys For Life. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence have the ultimate comedic duo chemistry, which is why the first two films did so well. We’re ready for them to come back better and funnier than ever.

The Gentleman which comes out the 24th of January, features a star-studded cast. Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Jackman, Collin Ferrel, Henry Golding, Hugh Grant, and Charlie Hunnam. It’s the British vs Oklahoma of all places.

No Time To Die is the end of a brilliant saga. This is Daniel Craig‘s last go as 007 himself, James Bond. After 15 years, this James Bond story will be over. There’s already talks about the next 007, but let’s get through this hard break up in April first.

Godzilla VS Kong, another fun action-packed battle between 2 giant-sized monsters! Starring Millie Bobby Brown and Alexander Skarsgård, this film will crush it.

Super

As you can tell from the beginning, this is another year for comics!

Morbius is personally one of our highest anticipated films. Jared Leto as a vampire… Yes, please. July 31st cannot come fast enough. All we can think is what if we get both Toms and Jared in one movie together… Wow… Magic.

Even though there are no details yet, according to IMDB the sequel to Venom is set to come out October 2nd! No plot or casting is confirmed yet, but we’re ready and waiting!

The Eternals. When Disney announced this during D23, it’s safe to say that the internet went crazy. With an all-star cast and highly anticipated characters coming to life… November 6th cannot come fast enough.

Comedy

What’s a year without laughter! There’s some new movies coming our way and sequels to legendary movies that we’re not ready for.

April 24th Bad Trip hits theaters! This is basically Eric Andre‘s take on the Jackass movies… But not as intense… Unsuspecting public + pranks + hidden cameras can never go wrong.

Free Guy comes out July 3rd and honestly, just by the trailer we can tell we’ll see this movie like 3 times. This movie looks like a live-action GTA game mixed with Tron and Deadpool. That sounds pretty amazing ngl.

Coming to America, Eddie Murphy is back and we’re living. After his hosting gig at SNL and seeing Dolemite Is My Name, we are more than ready for this comeback August 7th!

On August 21st they’re back and more excellent than ever! Bill & Ted Face The Music is the movie we’ve been waiting 29 years for! The last Bill & Ted movie came out in 1991… So it’s safe to say we’re due for some more Keanu.


Which movies are you most excited for in 2020!? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter!
