Season_Five_promo_pic

Air Date: Thursday, January 2, 2014

Yesterday NBC released a trailer for Season 5 of Community

It’s no secret that Community has had its fair share of struggles and controversy in the past.

In fact, disappointing doesn’t really describe it well enough. So one can’t really be blamed for looking forward to Season five of Community with more than a bit of apprehension. Continue reading

Mike’s Trailer Tuesday: X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)

xmen229013201326

Release Date: May 23, 2014

Director: Bryan Singer

Written By: Simon Kinberg (screenplay and story), Matthew Vaughn (story) & Jane Goldman (story)

This summer the two studios which own rights to Marvel characters and aren’t named Marvel will duke it out at the box office. Sony will release the hotly anticipated (and lately scrutinized) Amazing Spider-Man 2. Without a major Marvel studios release, the only competition for Amazing 2 will be Bryan Singer’s return to the helm of the X-Men franchise in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Early excitement would indicate DoFP is the more likely to win the superhero box office battle this summer.

Note: Come back Thursday for a special Thursday edition of Trailer Tuesday for the release of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer. Continue reading

This week’s Trailer Tuesday just got very exciting! If you read my “Week in TV” breakdown yesterday, you probably gathered from my excitement over Boardwalk Empire’s premiere, my commitment to catching up on The Newsroom and my impulsive blu-ray purchases that I’ve got HBO on the brain.
