#NintendoDirect News An unexpected Zelda remake and a Mario spinoff sequel

I'm sure some people were expecting more news from Metroid. Or even a surprise Zelda semi-sequel using the Breath of the Wild engine... but not... this? And this is still good, mind you. Only... what? I didn't expect that for sure!

First up a surprise brand new remake of one of my all-time favorite obscure Zelda games, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening!

Here is the Announcement Trailer, which is an anime-revamp of the original GB game's cutscene:

Wow! The intro looked really, really good. The visuals are... a bit weird to put it simply. But after rewatching it I'm kinda digging the style finally. The overworld seems nice, but Link will take some used to. The music is already PHENOMENAL though! Bring it! After a huge sandbox modern Zelda, a retro-style one is exactly what the Switch needed!

The second surprise was the randomly-announced as well Super Mario Maker 2! The first one was a great surprise, I guess this is part for the course:

Like before, people will mess around the engine to have fun. And some talented folks will actually end up making fantastic stuff with it.

#HorrorNEWS CHILD'S PLAY Official Trailer (2019)

Here's the reboot nobody asked for, even the original creator and his original stars are bashing it before release (because it might compromise his plans for a Chucky TV series continuation..), but don't worry Orion Pictures only got rights to the visuals and the Child's Play name and story.

And by story, I mean the tale of a AI killer robot-doll that will end up using the cloud to control a swarm of robot-Chucky dolls... Doesn't... sound... very Chucky.. at all... Why not simply rename this something else? Oh, yeah, just to use the familiar brand brand to sell some studio execs' nephew's unused script. Sigh...

Aside from Aubrey Plaza (playing a mom now! How time has passed...), nothing is really making me want to see this bore-fest. I feel like I've seen the entire boring film, aside from missing (CGi) jump scares (probably).

This... thing will be released on June 21.

#DisneyNEWS Disney's Aladdin - Special Look: In Theaters May 24

And here's finally the first proper trailer of the upcoming remake of Aladdin... and it looks as weird as I thought it would be.

Actually, scratch that. Will Smight's giant blue smurf is simply not working for me... so... cheap-looking. Like he's head's on a separate plan of existence from the rest of his body.. it just feels and looks completely off... Oh, well. Even Disney can't put out winners all the time.

Aladdin, stars the lovely "new Power Rangers" Naomi Scott as Princess Jasmine and Mena Massoud as Aladdin, it will be out May 24.

#Superbowl Trailers! #2019

First up, here's something pretty good. This lil' tease for the upcoming Twilight Zone reboot coming from Jordan Peele did a great job "interrupting" the superbowl:

You got my attention now, Mr. Peele. Also is that a tease of the updated new theme song?

Speaking of, here's a fantastic new look at Jordan Peele's upcoming creepy new film, US!

Weirdly this new trailer got a more Get Out vibe in my eyes, like it's happening in the same "world"-ysh.. See what I mean? In a way it makes me think of a new Channel Zero miniseries..

Toy Story 4 got a nice new preview showing how impressive and realistic the toys now look.

And finally let's close things up with this incredible new look at Avengers: Endgame!

The hype is real! So we know this will get time travel-ysh at some point, but I'm also loving the post-apocalyptic/Leftovers vibe from the post Infinity War world... Wait and see!

#DCnews Birds of Prey - First Look Trailer

Is this Birds of Prey even a real film? I see now that they've done Aquaman, Warner Bros' going crazy with the next DC films. Between this (?) and the weird standalone Joaquim Phoenix Joker movie...

#MOVIEnews Ghostbusters (2020) - Official Teaser Trailer | Jason Reitman

Wait...!!! WHAT!! WHAT!?!?? What is this!?! A new Ghostbusters film!!!??

Not a sequel to the recent reboot! Not a proper Ghostbusters 3! But instead another attempt to reboot the franchise, this time it's closer to a "soft reboot", a modern continuation of the original films, with a brand new cast, only taking into account the originals.

I still say the Ghostbusters 2016 film had a great cast, but a poor choice of a director for such a unique mix of horror, fantasy and comedy. The actress were fantastic in my eyes. But making it a reboot trapped the film into basically remaking the original first film to the point.

I have big hopes for Jason Reitman's film. Afterall, he's the son of the original director. Let's hope his cast will be a nice mix of unknown new faces (men and women alike) as well as some older familiar ones...

#MarvelNEWS SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Trailer (2019)

Woah!! The first Spider-Man Far From Home trailer is already out?

I thought Marvel would want to wait after Avengers Endgame for this one! It's not even like these type of movies actually even need trailers to get people in the seats in the first place.


I think I really enjoy this unique Peter/Aunt May dynamic. Really different compared to other interpretations of Spider-man. And I see they're finally calling Michelle MJ this time! Also NICK FURY!! And I dig the Noir-esque SHIELD uniform.
