Trailer Feedback: Five Nights at Freddy’s – Sister Location

Heere’s Baby.

Set in what looks more like a facility than a family restaurant, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location will contain at least four new haunted animatronics guaranteed to give you nightmares. There’s the ringmistress Baby, Funtime Foxy (who is possibly a hybrid of Foxy and the Mangle characters from the original series), Funtime Freddy (sporting a Springtrap puppet on his right hand) and the twisted ballerina Ballora – who’s eyes never appear to open.

The trailer for the FNAF spinoff begins with a cold open as the words “Fear, panic, dread and terror deep below ground where memories sleep. Anger is restless and secrets don’t keep” appear alongside flashing images of the beloved survival-horror franchise’s past installments. We are introduced to possibly new gameplay mechanics as the room/elevator descends into madness before divulging into a vent before we get a load of Baby and her nightmarish clan.

Creepy music ensues before presumably Baby utters the phrases “Don’t hold it against us. You don’t know what we’ve been through” at the trailers end.

The demented cat known as Sister Location was semi-let out of the bag in the second FNAF World update ending, which was released May 13th (which of course, fell on a Friday). During the ending, the player finds  FNAF creator Scott Cawthon at a desk explaining that he’s created something terrible and that her name is Baby. The lights dim, glowing eyes appear in the corner and when the lights come back on, Cawthon is found lying in a pool of his own blood.

This Fall, gamers and horror enthusiasts alike will uncover the terrifying reasons why nobody puts Baby in a corner.

Trailer Feedback: Deadpool (Trailer 2)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe delivered a present to its loyal fans Christmas Day with Deadpool’s second trailer.

Akin to the first trailer, we’re shown a brief origin story before being pulled back to the present state of affairs – but with a few extra goodies (including more Morena Baccarin). We catch a closer look at the Weapon X program and an easter egg glimpse of future X-Man Spike before seeing Deadpool emerge from rubble (presumably the destroyed facility).

Cut to the nitty-gritty destruction, a few snarky comments from Mr. Red Spandex himself, some fourth-wall breaking, a smattering of violence and a little bit of cursing (in the featured Red Band trailer).

While there is a little bit of chit-chit between Deadpool and Colossus, Angel Dust lets loose and we finally get to see what she and Negasonic Teenage Warhead can do followed by another quip from the merc with the mouth (to tie the proverbial room together).

Unlike the second Batman v. Superman trailer, Deadpool’s latest trailer doesn’t give anything major away and instead continues on the light-hearted path of the first one. Through quick wit and kitchy banter, Ryan Reynolds continues to prove why he was born to play the most obnoxious character in the Marvel Universe.

Deadpool slices and dices into theaters February 12.

 

F*ck Mondays! Episode 5: The Big, Fat Trailer Show

real fmondays

It’s a trailer bonanza on this episode of F*ck Mondays! Chris and Jon talk about X-Men: Apocalypse, the latest Batman v Superman trailer, Independence Day: Resurgence and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows.

The boys also discuss Connor McGregor’s 13-second victory over Jose Aldo and review Krampus as well as the first half of second and fourth seasons of The Flash and Arrow.

Trailer Feedback: Captain America: Civil War (Trailer 1) & Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Trailer 2)

Within the past few weeks there has been quite the buzz among comic book nerds and movie buffs alike. Thanksgiving week saw the debut trailer for Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War while last week DC retaliated with the second trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While comparing the two would be another anticlimactic round of apples and oranges, going over them in the same piece is sacrilegious enough for everyone.

Captain America: Civil War (Trailer 1)

This has potential to be one of the best comic book films of all time.

Civil War’s first trailer is packed with plenty of action, suspense and plot details without giving too much away. While most fans know the Civil War storyline, it’s nice to see that Hollywood has not begun squeezing the life out of Captain America and the changes have been reworked to fit the main story rather nicely so far.

One major example of this is the prominent display of Black Panther and Falcon filling the shoes of Spider Man and/or The Punisher (Spidey is now rumored, but will more likely be a post-credits Easter egg than in the actual cast and Punisher will debut on Daredevil). While they are supporting characters, their inclusions feel like they are more of a major role than what’s on paper. Black Widow however, takes a back seat (but that’s okay, we know how bad-ass she is).

The tension of Captain America and Iron Man can be cut with a knife. Watching the two bicker before duking it out is one of the highlights of the trailer and the teamwork of Caps and The Winter Soldier could be one of the most iconic scenes in the Marvel movie universe.

Although many questions remain, one stands out above the rest.

Will the Marvel cinematic universe stay true to the comic by killing Captain America?

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (Trailer 2)

There is too much going on.

Bruce Wayne meets Clark Kent at a party we can assume is being held by Jessie Eisenberg’s goofball Lex Luthor. Neither get along with not only each other but their costumed counterparts as well. Rather than agree to disagree, their alternate personalities decide to fight. During this battle, Luthor seemingly experiments with and/or alters General Zod’s corpse to create Doomsday – a surefire way to rid the world of both of them. Facing this new terror, Batman and Superman agree to disagree when Wonder Woman appears. The three are set to face off against Doomsday where we can only assume either a) Superman dies to set up a real Superman sequel b) the three heroes emerge victorious, Luthor goes to jail (and hopefully bald) to set up a real Superman sequel or C) Doomsday and/or Luthor get away to set up either a real Superman sequel and/or the long overdue Justice League movie.

If at any point that summary felt like a “walk into a bar” joke it’s because the trailer is simply that. While the initial trailer’s hype was built on mystery, shock and awe – this one took all of that away.

Rather than give us tiny bits of information that leave us with questions Warner Brothers has chosen to present the entire plot of the movie in a three minute presentation.

Not only does it feel like a dead giveaway but we are also introduced to a non-threatening Luthor using Zod’s death as a plot device, Wonder Woman basically saying “hi” and Doomsday (who looks like a Ninja Turtle concept Michael Bay rejected).

The only saving grace is Wonder Woman’s inclusion and the exchange between Kent and Wayne (which are brief, as they should be).

Talk about putting all of your eggs in one basket.

Trailer Feedback: Krampus

Looks like we’ll be getting an unexpected guest this holiday season.

A family of grinches gets together for what’s likely to be their annual (and last) Christmas tradition when all goes dark. During their tumultuous bickering, one of the children tears up his letter to Santa and throws it out the window – presumably the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s (or Krampus’) back.

When the ungrateful family starts to come to their senses, it’s too late and Grandma warns everyone of what’s coming. Krampus is seen on the roof of the house with his sack of baddies and morbid toy contraptions before coming down the chimney to wreak havoc on la maison de dégénérés.

This looks like a holiday treat. From square one everyone but Grandma is an unlikeable character. Envy, bitterness, pettiness and disgust run rampantly in this household. The kids are fighting to the point where one angrily shreds his letter to Santa Claus – and on Christmas (for shame). You can bet that not a creature will be stirring when Krampus rears his ugly head (except Grandma, she seems nice). Krampus’ helpers are going to terrify and provide us with unique deaths that are sure to hark a few herald angels.

At this point the only question that remains is will Santa save the day (or show up at all)? Regardless, Krampus should jingle some bells and raise some hell.

Whether you’ve been naughty or nice, Krampus is coming to town.

Trailer Feedback: Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (Trailer 3)

The galaxy shook Monday night as the third (and presumably final) trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was unveiled.

For starters, we finally have a trailer with plot elements (and how) in contrast to the cryptic nature of the previous two.

Han Solo and Princess Leia (reprised by Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher) look weary as the battle between good and evil will continue with the latest Sith leader Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver) Dark Side army in honor of Darth Vader’s memory. Given these facts, it’s plausible that Ren either does not know or refuses to believe Vader’s final act was a redeeming one. Regardless, the galactic power couple of Solo and Leia will more likely serve as mentors to our main protagonists (and latest Jedi) Rey and Finn (Daisy Ridley and John Boyega).

However, there’s no trace of Luke Skywalker (who Mark Hamill is reprising), leading us to believe he may be returning in the form of flashbacks or voice work.

Excitement, breathtaking visuals and suspense permeate the trailer – letting our imaginations run wild. A nice touch of Stormtrooper combat, a neat inside shot of the X-Wing and the almighty lightsaber dual make your childhood memories fondly flow back to you. Despite their ages, it looks like Han and Chewie (reprised by Peter Mayhew) are back for one last hurrah this Christmas.

For the love of God, please don’t let this movie suck.

Trailer Feedback: Deadpool (2016)

Everyone’s favorite gun slinging, wise-cracking, hyperviolent anti-hero has his own movie and yes, it’s rated R.

Deapool’s trailer is filled with a plethora of murder, mayhem and mature language – and that’s not all. We also get a glimpse of leading man Ryan Reynold’s transformation from Wade Wilson to the merc with a mouth, complete with love interest bound to end in tragedy.

From a first look, Deadpool’s main characteristics seem like they will be intact. Marvel’s wittiest asassin breaks the fourth wall numerous times and goes back and forth with X-Men Colossus (Andre Tricoteux) and Angel Dust (Gina Carano), a few grunts and even an old lady (verbally).

Nothing is more priceless than the exchange that goes on between an unmasked Wilson and T.J. Miller’s “Weasel” (avocado anyone?).

And then there’s the pun-intended kicker. DMX’s “X Gon Give it to Ya” (because Deadpool is part of the Weapon X program).

Deadpool breaks into theaters next February.

We’re in (and we’ll be wearing our brown pants).

Trailer Feedback: Cooties

In our youth, there was once an invisible disease all little boys and girls had at some time in their lives called “Cooties.”

Essentially a warped version of tag, cooties could be brought on at a moment’s notice when one child would yell that another “had cooties”. Those highly contagious cooties could then be given to someone else by touching them and screaming loudly that said child now “has cooties”.

The only way to rid someone of their cooties would be to give them a “cootie shot” by making circular patterns on the victims wrist and saying “circle circle, dot dot, now you’ve got the cootie shot” before poking the cooties away.

But what if one of the cutest “diseases” on earth was actually a food-borne virus that turned kids into zombies?

In a nutshell, this is “Cooties;” a comedy-horror film that hits theaters just in time for class in September.

Elijah Wood (“Lord of The Rings” trilogy, “Green Street Hooligans”), Rainn Wilson (“Backstrom,” “The Office”) and a plethora of others star as teachers and faculty of an elementary school overrun with zombie children in what looks to be a smart, funny and adorable showing in the vein of “Zombieland”.

“Cooties” should have an abundance of great lines and cult classic moments. A trailer highlight is the tail end when Wilson cooly says “Naptime, mother- (shut your mouth)” before lighting a jumping jamboree full of infected kids on fire.

How’s that for a cootie shot?

Trailer Feedback: Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (Trailer 2)

This Week, Anaheim, California’s Star Wars Celebration gave us the reveal of the official second trailer for “The Force Awakens” and it destroys any skepticism critics once had.

Within the first 30 seconds, we hear Mark Hamill’s voice reprising his rightful role as Luke Skywalker, with visuals of a new lightsaber, the new hovercraft racing past a fallen Imperial ship, and the remains of Darth Vader’s iconic helmet.

Wow.

We then get establishing shots of the characters from the previous trailer, only this time revealing the clear-cut villain, our new heroes (and heroin), the new Storm Trooper fleet, and possibly a new bounty hunter.

But only the best is yet to come.

First is an X-Wing and Tie Fighter battle taking place over a gorgeous landscape. Next is the Millennium Falcon in an epic chase inside the hull of a ship.

And then the goosebumps emerge as Harrison Ford utters the words “Chewie, we’re home.”

And indeed we are as Han Solo and Chewbacca appear before our very eyes.

The Force has indeed awakened and this Christmas, J.J. Abrams is going to hit it out of the park.
