Welcome to Almighty Popcorn!

Tis the mighty Thursday again and our heroes bring you the latest trailers to come out to the interwebs!

 

Lewis
It be Thursday bitches!   #gangsta!

Alan
It tickles me that you think that you can be all gangster like.

Lewis
Oh you know it for reals, yo!

Alan
I’m so glad you don’t do this out in public.

Lewis
Oh I can if you want me to.

Alan
That’s quite alright!  Anyway, nice job on the tidbits with Dr Strangelove by the way.  You’re getting quite a knack for writing.

Lewis
Thanks!  I gave myself a complimentary pink wafer biscuit for getting it done.

Alan
Did you have to mention that I can recognise your farts though?

Lewis
*ponders* ….Yes.

Alan
*facepalm* Let’s just talk about the newest film trailers.

Lewis
Woo hoo!

Director of District 9, Neill Blomkamp releases “Chappie” trailer

 

Alan
The master director of sub-text, Neill Blomkamp, has released an official trailer for his upcoming film Chappie.  A film based on a robot that has achieved sentience.  The film will follow Chappie’s life and story through his adventures with his surroundings.  Some will be good, some will be bad.  But we will learn with him.

Since Neill Blomkamp is at the helm, the film will be rife with subtext, like District 9’s view on how we treat “aliens”, to Elysium’s vast difference between treatment of the rich and the poor, Chappie looks like it will be based on how one person’s view of the world can shape and change others, simply for being different.

The film stars Dev Patel that looks like he’s created Chappie from a reject (check his head) robot from the company, Tetravaal.  Dev Patel powers him up to show him the world and how he can be a part of it.  Along with Dev is the music duo from Die Antwoord, Ninja and Yo-Landi Visser, that will help Chappie what it means to be different, and cool.

However, and in a slight twist than the norm, Hugh Jackman plays the antagonist in this film that tries to shutdown Chappie because he could be unstable.

Lewis
I’m sorry Alan, I have to stop you there.  From looking at the trailer, it looks like Hugh Jackman has the most spiffing mullet I’ve seen since Danny McBride.  I mean LOOK AT IT!

 Wolverine can never rock this do.

Don’t you want to be touching it?!

Alan
….If Hugh Jackman was here right now what would you say to him?

Lewis
Let me touch your mullet.

Alan
And with that, I am very glad he is not here.

Lewis
Do you think he’ll let me?!

Alan
Lewis.

Lewis
Mmm?

Alan
I’m not gonna touch that with a fifty foot pole.  Anyways, from looking at the trailer you can see that Chappie will see and feel the best things about life, and the harsh realities of being different from the rest.

Lewis
Wait….a lovable robot with an adorable voice that has an Indian mentor and is trying to find his place in the world whilst an evil company wants to shut him down or use him?! *gasps* IT’S THIS GENERATIONS SHORT CIRCUIT!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

It's alive!  IT'S ALIIIIVE!

It’s alive! IT’S ALIIIIVE!

JOHNNY FIVE IS ALIIIIIIIIVE!!!!!!

New UK trailer for The Hobbit: Battle of The Five Armies

 

Alan
After a fortnight of posters of people’s heads.  They have finally released a new trailer for the latest Hobbit film that opens next month.  The Hobbit follows Bilbo Baggins of The Shire, a Hobbit by nature that is invited by Gandalf the Grey, a wizard, to journey alongside him and 13 other dwarves in re-taking their home land, Erebor.  In the company is Thorin Oakenshield, true King under the Mountain whose home was raided and taken by Smaug, a vicious and greedy dragon that is after all the wealth in Erebor.  In the latest film, Thorin has re-taken Erebor, but at the cost of many lives in Laketown.

Lewis
Johnny Five is aliiiiiive…..

Alan
Focus, buddy! *claps hands*

Lewis
*shakes head* sorry, I watch trailer to see what you on about.  *watches The Hobbit trailer*

Alan
From the looks of the trailer….well, it’s absolutely amazing.  Everyone seems to have their game on.  Including Saruman and Lord Elrond!

Fruit Ninja ain't got nothing on me.

Fruit Ninja ain’t got nothing on me.

And as the title suggests, battles are a plenty!  The elves, the orcs, the dwarves, they all have mustered their forces for what looks like a brawl that will certainly be the talk of the Christmas table.  Kinda makes you wonder why this wasn’t the first trailer to come out.  Not that the melancholy trailer with Billy Boyd singing is a bad one, but this is certainly a trailer that will get people stirring.  What do you think Lewis?

Lewis
I still watching it.

Alan
Isn’t that your third time?

Lewis
Yeah.

Alan
…..you’re gonna keep on watching it on repeat aren’t you?

Lewis
Yeah. IS THAT A BABY CAVE TROLL?!

I left teeth marks when I was breast fed!

Official trailer for Minions

 

Alan
No words needed.  No explanation.  This is a film that is going to be watched by all.  As inevitable since they came to be, the Minions from Despicable Me have their own film to speak their funny way and do the funny things they do.  This will be a film that Lewis will undoubtedly nag at me to watch till its release.

Lewis
Now!  Now!  Now!  Now!  Now!  Now! 

Alan
Told you.
