Venom Trailer #2…

After having a few hours to collect myself and watch the trailer numerous times… It’s time to give my thoughts on the upcoming horror/anti-hero movie trailer that dropped this morning… It was absolutely exhilarating. I feel as if I was one of the few who thoroughly enjoyed the first trailer, with basically no complaints. This trailer though… blew my frickin’ mind. I have always been one to get pretty hyped for anything Marvel or DC, but this is such a new taste for the superhero genere.

The trailer starts out with Eddie Brock giving a little idea of who he is. He is a reporter who believes the goverment is missing some very important/dangerous events in the world, and that he has found “something really bad.” Following that introduces the beginning of the tear between Eddie and Venom. The trailer then cuts to the main antagonist of the film Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed) stating why he is trying to learn more about the symbiotes which is for finding a way to combine man and symbiote to start a new evolution of man-kind. This trailer does an extremely good job of giving a glance into the intentions of the two main characters of the film.

Then… we get some action of Venom…
Eddie and Venom have some back and forth showing the difficult time Eddie is having controlling the symbiote to use it for only good. I’m sure this will be a struggle we will see at the beginning of the film when they are converged into one-being: the malicious intent of venom and the good guy of Eddie Brock. This will give us a fun roller coaster to keep our eyes on throughout the film. We get some more direct dialogue from Venom when he has captured the enemy from the first trailer, where he begins to describe the human body, “Eyes, lungs, pancreas so many snacks so little time.” This line gave me a rush of chills down my spine. This is where the R rating is going to come from. They seem to be wanting to portray the very maniacle/cannibal side of Venom which is going to give an extremely interesting characteristic for a character we are rooting for.

To touch on the special effects of the trailer we got an amazing look at the full standing Venom! This was something I was petrified about because in the first trailer Venom didnt seem to be THAT big… Well Sony has eased our hearts revealing a monstrosity that is Venom, a solid 7/8 foot or so standing creature that will terrify all oncoming foes. Speaking of foes of within the film, we got a more improved look at the enemy symbiotes in the film mainly Scream/Donna Diego (Michelle Lee) and what looked like Toxin/Patrick Mulligan (Reid Scott). It is really exciting to see what Venom will be potentially up against in the upcoming film!

All in all the trailer was super satisfying to have a peak at the story, giving some light to the villains of the film, and the amazing special effects. What did you think about the trailer?

Shazam!

There have been so many huge trailers that have dropped this week at San Diego Comic Con! We have already touched on one of the DC projects, Titans, the new gritty Teen Titans TV series… There have been two very big DC movie trailer that have dropped since then; the first one we are going to cover at the Nerd Chambers is Shazam! Myself and Manny have been somewhat skeptical with this upcoming super hero film because of the casting choice for the main role of Shazam. Sammy on the other hand seems to love the picks so far with casting for the film. That being said Shazam has always been one of my favorite DC characters thanks to the animated series he showed up in, and the very entertaining Injustice games (mobile/console). I have been extremely interested in this movie even with the questionable casting choice, but hey that will have to be answered once I see the film. Hopefully all the actors blow me away.

The introduction of the trailer was very enjoyable from the fun hangouts with Billy Batson and his friends to him standing up to some bullies at the school. I genuinely really enjoy Asher Angel so far as Billy Batson for what I have seen in the trailer. Once the trailer began to focus more on Shazam my worries started to increase a little more. I am terrified this movie is going to feel more like a super hero spoof movie rather than an actual super hero film. I did have those worries though for the Antman film that Marvel created, but that clearly was not the case… So I am really hoping that DC can pull of the same quirky style that Antman was able to do with Marvel. The actual footage of the film seemed to be good. there was not any moments of the trailer that I felt the CGI was bad (Not that we got to see a whole lot), but it looked better then I was expecting. The costume also looks a lot better seeing it post production rather than the set photos that were revealed seeming a bit too cheesy.

Which Star Wars Spin-Off Should Be Next?

As we all know the current Star Wars trilogy is coming to an end with (Untitled) Episode IX coming out December 20th… This begs a big question, what is next for the Star Wars franchise? There are hundreds of different theories out there with what is to come for the Star Wars universe. Disney can take several different routes for the franchise, and the main focus seems to be a NEW standalone trilogy directed by Rian Johnson (Director of The Last Jedi). Outside of a new trilogy there are a bunch of rumors of upcoming solo spin off films such as Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Boba Fett, and some other films!

This is where we step in to play… At the Nerd Chambers we have a hunch it HAS to be one of two options… DARTH FREAKIN MAUL or the man, the myth, the legend… Obi-Wan Kenobi. I, myself (Brandon), would really love to see an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie! Disney could do a lot with the film to really fill the gap between episode three and four, and on top of that Ewan McGregor is in his prime to play a seasoned Obi-Wan Kenobi! For some people the entire prequel trilogy was a disaster, but Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi performance was the superior portion of the franchise.

SPOILER ALERT TO HAN SOLO MOVIE!!!

 

 

Another intriguing single character based story would be Darth Maul… Darth Maul has always been a fan favorite for his menacing red and black face paint, horns, and bad ass dual sided light saber. We were all very sad to see him fall to his death in Episode I Phantom Menace, or did we…? Well thanks to the newest installment to the Star Wars franchise Solo: A Star Wars Story reveals that Darth Maul was not actually dead. Hardcore Star Wars fans would know though that Darth Maul still had a presence throughout the Clone Wars in the comics and The Clone Wars TV series. Personally I never thought that they would make this cannon (relevant to the movie franchise) since he was sliced in half and underwent a some-what Darth Vader transformation becoming part machine. Well, thanks to the newest installment to the Star Wars franchise Solo: A Star Wars Story, we now know that Darth Maul is in fact alive. This revelation opens up a huge door of opportunities for the Star Wars universe to dive into a beloved Star Wars character.

There are endless possibilities that Disney could proceed with the Star Wars franchise… We at the Nerd Chambers believe that the best plan of attack would either be a Darth Maul or Obi-Wan Kenobi spin off. It would be great to get the fan service we have all been waiting for! Until next time…

C2E2 Day Two!!!

Day two was another day of excitement. The place was jammed packed,and had a record total of people for the con. The entire day was very shoulder to shoulder, but there were so many more crazy cosplayers for Saturday. There was even a DJ booth were cosplayers gathered and danced around like crazy. 

I started a little bit more of my comic book hunt Saturday, but sadly did not get very lucky in my searches. I was looking for the comic Warewolf by Night #32 (First appearance of Moon Knight) for my dad because of a bet we made years ago.  The context of the bet was I bet him that the Cubs would not win a world series in the next 5 years (Bet made in 2013)… If I win he owed me Amazing Spider-Man #13 (First Appearance of Mysterio). Since he won though… I owe him Warewolf by Night #32… I wanted to make sure to find him a high enough grade book, so it was a lot of fun going on the hunt for this book. Sadly I only found copies around a 7.0, 8.0 at best… Where I’m looking for a 9.2+, so there goes about 1200$… I’m sure I will acquire this book soon enough hopefully at Wizard World in August! 

All around I was shocked that there were not a lot of comic book vendors. This was probably the least I’ve seen at any con. The amounts of artists and little toys and statues at this con was overwhelming. All were incredible but I wish there were many more comic vendors! Hopefully you had a good time at C2E2 if you also had the privilege to go!

C2E2 Hype!!!

This weekend is one of the most exciting events for all nerds in Illinois! It’s time for C2E2! This will be my fifth year in a row attending the event, and I am even more excited then ever. Marvel will finally be making a return to the event, so it will be great to possibly see any sort of teaers for upcoming projects of Marvel (please give a little preview of Defenders!) A couple years back when Gotham wqs coming out they aited the first episode for all attendees of the event to get an opportunity to watch. After the great success of the preview Supergirl did the same thing!

Other than any movie and TV excitement I am really hoping that their is a booth where I can get my hands on Injustice 2 somewhere at the con. It was really awesome that Mortal Kombat X was playable early at C2E2 they it dropped, so let’s hope that Injustice 2 gets the same love! I am also in a big debate on what to spend my money on this year… Filling in the holes of my amazing Spider-Man collection comics… Or some incredible art pieces in artist alley..??? The dicisions are so difficult! 

Make sure to keep checking in over the weekend for updated on how C2E2 is panning out for the cast at The Nerd Chambers! Also tweet us @TheNerdChambers or comment below , and let us know your best con experience!

Fate of the Furious Review… (Non-Spoiler)

There has been a long string of very successful Fast and Furious movies that have released and hit big. Weirdly enough this is my first one that I have seen. I’m giving this review to have a new look in the film from a prospective not many of you may have you love the franchise. All that being stated… Here we go!

I was definitely suprised about the path these films have taken. Again I haven’t seen any, but I always had friend who told me about the racing parts of these movies. They have taken a very huge shift from what they used to be, but I am very happy about that. It is more of an Expendables feel around these movies with the high speed missions and incredible action sequences that I was able to truly able to enjoy myself. The conflict between Don and the rest of the team felt very real, and for my first movie of the series I felt very attached to the characters when anything did happen. I so understand everyone’s love for these films now and I will need to do some catching up!

This movie all in all was a very interesting and exciting movie. Yes it may have been predictable for many portions of the film, and the dialouge weak at portions, but none the less it was extremely entertaining. I would give Fate of the Furious 7.5/10. The only portions it lacked in was predictably and dialouge. that being said I understand these films are not trying to have too of the ling dialouge credibility, but the film did do very well at hitting the key items for the genre. The action sequences and set pieces were perfect and felt so realistic. Let us know @TheNerdChambers what you thought of the Fate of the Furious!
