Welcome to The Trailer Park, a place where all trailers come to congregate. Every week the newest and greatest trailers will gather here for your one stop shop in movies, video games, and all other kinds of teaser goodness.
This week Zod continues his threats on Superman as Man of Steel approaches like a speeding bullet. Pacific Rim rises from the depths to excite us more about del Toro’s monster smashing, epic robot action film. Edgar Wright and the gang of Pegg and Frost team up again for a comedic adventure of old friends out to recapture the glory of their youth. In The Purge, a family must do all they can to stay safe on the most dangerous night of the year, where there is no law to protect them. Lastly, Metallica creates a unique blend of music and narrative in Through the Never.
DC Animated released a trailer today for its next animated movie based on Geoff Johns’ Flashpoint series. Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is the first time The Flash will get to take the center stage. Set in an alternate timeline where the entire DCU has been turned on its head, Barry Allen must team up with an unlikely Batman to find the cause of the time paradox and set things back on their proper timeline.
Flashpoint features the voice talent of fan favorites Nathan Fillion (Hal Jordan), Ron Pearlman (Slade Wilson), Cary Elwes (Aquaman), and the amazing talent of Kevin McKidd (Batman), as well as Micheal B. Jordon (Cyborg), C. Thomas Howell (Reverse-Flash), and Justin Chambers (The Flash). The Flashpoint story ended the previous continuity of comics, making way for the New 52 continuity.
Does this mean that we’ll be seeing new continuity stories in future DC Animated movies?
After several short teasers, the first full trailer (2:47) for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gives the first real look at what the show is shaping up to be.
In the wake of The Avengers, SHIELD is putting together a very selective response team of experts to handle increasingly common abnormal activity. Super powered beings are popping up like weeds and SHIELD will use all of their high tech gadgetry and superhero friends to defend the innocent.
In addition to the return of Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), the show will star Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen (Eureka), Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Chloe Bennet (Nashville), and J. August Richards (Angel) who’s rumored to be playing Luke Cage. The pilot episode will be directed by Joss Whedon, written by Joss and Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. All three are also serving as Executive Producers. Writers will also include Jeffrey Bell (Angel, Alias) and Jeph Loeb (Smallville)
Agents of SHIELD will be coming to us this fall as part of ABC’s Tuesday night line up.
This is the season for movie trailers.
After watching the Star Trek: Into Darkness and Superman: Man of Steel trailers, I figured I was done. But then I remembered that Edgar Wright was doing another flick called The World’s End. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost return for what’s supposed to be the final adventure of the “Blood and Ice Cream Trilogy”.
The Mighty Mjolnir has returned and with it a new trailer for Thor: The Dark World. Marking the return of Thor, Thor 2 picks up after the events that Avengers leaves off from and finds Asgard and Midgard once again in danger, but this time from an enemy that is older than the universe itself. Led by the vengeful leader Malekith (Eccleston), an army is amassing that threatens to overthrow the order of the Nine Realms and will push Thor to his limits while forcing him to make the toughest decision of his life. Featuring the return of Natalie Portman (Jane Foster), Sir Anthony Hopkins (Odin), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Jamie Alexander (Lady Sif), Ray Stevenson (Volstagg), and Idris Elba (Hemidal) Thor: The Dark World comes out November 8, 2013.
Darkness is coming…
If you are half as excited about the HBO’s new season of Game of Thrones as we are, then we recommend that you find some sort of physical restraint or an incredibly strong tranquilizer for the next ten Days. Game of Thrones returns on March 31st, 2013, and HBO has begun little by little to reveal more in the way of content, including a second trailer and several new teasers, included below.
The first trailer for Star Trek into Darkness is here, and we at Pixelated Geek have a few things to say. Join us as we discuss what J.J. Abrams brings to the table. Read On
Throughout Batman’s long history a handful of stories are considered pivotal and influential, such as “The Killing Joke”, “The Long Halloween”, and the “Knightfall” series. However, Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” may stand head and shoulders above them all.
First released in February of 1986, “The Dark Knight Returns” was a critically acclaimed story looking at Batman and Gotham years after The Bat had retired. Now an aging recluse, Bruce is pulled back into action by the return of old enemies and then quickly met by new foes.
Peter Weller (Robocop), as previously reported, has been cast as the elderly Bat, along with Ariel Winters (Modern Family) as Robin/Carrie Kelley, Wade Williams (Prison Break) as Two-Face/Harvey Dent, Michael McKean as Dr. Wolper, and David Selby (of the original Dark Shadows soap) rounds out an amazing cast we finally get to see in action today, as MTV Geek has the exclusive first trailer for The Dark Knight Returns Part 1.
Watch the trailer below and let us know what you think of DC Comics and WB Animated’s adaptation of the story that changed everything for Batman.
