Death Note Getting A Live-Action Movie On Netflix, Check Out The Trailer

Death Note, a critically acclaimed manga turned anime turned multiple live action adaptations is getting another live action version, this time on Netflix. Directed by Blair Witch director Adam Wingard, the movie stars Nat Wolff from The Fault in Our Stars as Light Turner (Light Yagami), along with William Dafoe as Ryuk.

Game of Thrones Season 7 Teaser Warns About The Great War

The first official teaser for the seventh season of Game of Thrones is finally out, and raises a lot more questions than it answers. So many questions. It’s a very short trailer, and doesn’t really feature any of the characters on the screen. As the sigils of the various houses appear on the screen you can hear prominent quotes from the various family members in the background, like Danaerys Targayen, Cersei Lannister, Lady Olynna and more. But the most interesting part comes at the very end. Jon Snow, proclaimed as the King of the North in the last season, can be heard warning someone that only one war matters, and that war is here. The other battles the houses have been fighting are not going to mean a thing when they have to face The Great War. “The same thing is coming for ...

New Supergirl Trailer: Impending Disaster?

CBS has released a trailer for it’s upcoming show, Supergirl. And it’s hard to say whether it’s going to be worth a watch or if ‘Super’ will just be a part of the name. Kara Zor-El, the  Supergirl, is a 24 year-old coming to grips with her own superpowers. The entire 6 minute, 30 second teaser is a highly contrived affair that is clearly meant to evoke several classic movies and television shows. Time will tell if Supergirl is the heroine we’ve all been looking forward to, or just another mishandled reboot. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

Avengers 2 : Age of Ultron Trailer

So the trailer for Avengers 2: Age of Ultron is out and am sure many of you have watched it by now. I was pretty excited to finally get time to watch this trailer and honestly I was a bit disappointed. I was way more intrigued by the video of Iron Man desperately trying to pick up Thor’s hammer. Although I have to say the villain looks like a total badass!   Not saying this trailer was bad or anything but it just didn’t do it for me. Let’s just hope the movie packs in a lot more than this trailer could within it’s time restriction. What did you guys thinks? Please enlighten me with your wisdom in the comments below.
