JUSTICE LEAGUE – Official Heroes Trailer

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

3 short films which will connect the original ‘Blade Runner’ with ‘Blade Runner 2049.’

If the machines are rising up against us, anime short Black Out 2022 suggests we (as usual) probably deserve it. The film, from Cowboy Bebop’s Shinichiro Watanabe, reveals that the current growth in sexbots we are seeing in 2017 has led to a future in which sentient replicant prostitutes have become the norm. We’ve already seen something similar happening in HBO’s Westworld and AMC/Channel 4’s Humans, of course.

As a fan of the 2004 Battlestar Galactica remake, it’s interesting to hear the term “skinjob” being used here as a derogatory term for the replicants. Far from nicking it, screenwriter Hampton Fancher came up with the term for the 1982 original.

The first of these short films is set in 2036 and focuses on Jared Leto’s creepy character named Niander Wallace. Apparently, he’s done something to help stave off famine on Earth, and so despite being pretty scary, he’s placated by some kind of government officials. At this point in this future history, there’s a full-on prohibition of Replicants. It stands to reason this is because of all the crazy shit that went down in the first movie. But Wallace is looking to change that and bring Replicant technology back in a big way. Part of his justification for this is to increase productivity on the “Off-World Colonies.”

Dave Bautista’s Sapper Morton appears in Luke Scott’s second short, 2048: Nowhere to Run, as well as Blade Runner 2049 itself. And there’s a clear difference between the one-time wrestler’s performance and those of the actors playing replicants in the first movie, who often seemed deliberately supercharged with artificiality. Whereas Daryl Hannah’s Pris or Brion James’s Leon might easily have been identified as replicants without the need for the famous Voight-Kampf test, Morton appears able to pass easily for human. In fact, he shows a deep need to engage with his fellow sentient beings. The only sign that we are looking at a machine comes in the android’s brutal takedown of a gang of baddies.

Three short films were commissioned to serve as prequels to the new feature film “Blade Runner 2049

Pacific Rim: Uprising Trailer #1

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. Pacific Rim Uprising is directed by Steven S. DeKnight (Netflix’s Daredevil, STARZ’s Spartacus) and also stars Jing Tian, Burn Gorman, Adria Arjona and Charlie Day. #JoinTheUprising #PacificRimUprising
