‘Aquaman’ Goes Rock Lobster!

Warner Bros. released this week its first trailer for Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa as the would-be king of the underwater world of Atlantis and one-time laughingstock of DC’s Super Friends. This time out, however, the merman has lost his goldie locks and sensitive Pisces nature and gone rock lobster.

Helmed by Saw and Conjuring director James Wan, Aquaman finds our musclebound reluctant hero fighting enemies on land and sea while falling for the sexy Atlantean (Amber Heard) urging him to take his throne as king of Atlantis. Much of the CG looks bad, but Momoa is cool and you gotta trust in Wan.

AMC has released a trailer for the second half of “Fear the Walking Dead’s” fourth season. Returning Aug. 12, the impressively revamped show finds its survivors split in Texas during a massive storm so strong it hurls the dead sky high!

Under its new showrunners, “Fear the Walking Dead” has become far more gritty and embolden in its storytelling, going as far as to lose its original heroes the Clarks, except for hot daughter Alycia Debnam-Carey, while introducing new characters in thoughtfully crafted episodes reminiscent of early “Walking Dead.”

To be fair, the show had already show signs of life by the end of season two and by three was up on its own feet with an intriguing narrative. Still, the new season is much better and “Walking Dead’s” Morgan is far less annoying here despite signs that he may still be bonkers.

‘Walking Dead’ Season 9 Is Going to Be Brutal!

walking-dead-michonne

AMC unleashed a five-minute-plus trailer for “The Walking Dead’s” upcoming ninth season today at SDCC. Set to premiere Oct. 7, the show finds Rick Grimes and his people attempting to build civilization for Alexandria and its allied communities after defeating the Saviors and imprisoning their leader, Negan, in last season’s All Out War.

The new season promises to be the drama’s most polarizing and controversial to date for a variety of reasons leaked early on by entertainment sites and trades and now confirmed at SDCC — reasons we won’t expand on should you be fortunate enough to be living under a rock and not have assholes spoil every detail for you.

The trailer is absolutely awesome and does a great job of hinting at the white-knuckle thrills to come. Sure, we’re disappointed to see Tara waddling around, but Rick and Michonne are kicking ass, Negan still has teeth, Daryl and Carol are bonding, Maggie’s let her hair down, Jerry’s got a girlfriend, zombies are sicker than ever, and, holy crap, did you see Rosita’s pants?

Nathan Fillion Is Nathan Drake In ‘Uncharted’ Short Film!

nathan-fillion-uncharted

Perhaps drawing inspiration from Ryan Reynolds’ leaked Deadpool footage, Nathan Fillion stars as wise-cracking treasure hunter Nathan Drake in a 15-minute short film by director Allan Ungar (Gridlocked) based on the Naughty Dog video game, Uncharted.

A film adaptation of the game has been struggling to see light of day for years, during which fans of its hero, Nathan Drake, have hoped against hope Fillion, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the character in looks and manner, would score the role.

Unfortunately, Sony is currently envisioning a younger Drake, tapping Tom Holland (Spiderman: Homecoming) for the part some time ago. But, that’s not stopping Fillion and Ungar from finally making fans happy — and proving to Hollywood how the “Firefly” star truly owns it.

The Uncharted short film itself is a blast and co-stars Stephen Lang (Don’t Breathe) as Drake’s sidekick Sully and Mircea Monroe (Fifty Shades of Black) as his lady and photojournalist Elena. Drake’s smart-ass quips are gold and the action resembles the game in tone and actual shots! If not the big screen, here’s hoping it makes it to the small.

Everyone In ‘Unfriended: Dark Web’ Should Bite It Hard!

Blumhouse Tilt has released a new trailer for Unfriended: Dark Web, a sequel to its underrated 2014 cyber-thriller Unfriended — a supernatural tale about a vengeful suicide spirit told from the computer screen of one of its intended victims.

Unfriended: Dark Web is shot in similar manner, but this time out follows a college dude who finds hidden human trafficking files on his new laptop and soon discovers someone is watching his every move through his webcam. It’s slated for release July 20.

Hailed as Blumhouse’s most evil film, Dark Web sounds pretty cool, but, damn, those kids are annoying. You just know they’re unaware, entitled and privileged self-obsessed snowflakes. Give me the sex-hungry kids of old-school slashers any day. Screw these brats in the neck. May they die horribly.
