We took a break from Marvel to bring you a reimagining of how the Simian Flu decimated humanity and led to the planet of the apes. Taking place after Rise and before Dawn, consider this a Planet of the Apes 1.5.
Blaming the leak on Hyrda, Marvel Studios went ahead and released the HD version of their first official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was slated to air during next week’s episode of S.H.I.E.L.D.
While it’s a bit like opening your presents before Christmas morning, it’s hard to say that I’m not super excited for the first look and a darker Avengers movie that looks certain to please fans and kick ass at the box office.
The creepy music and James Spader‘s voice raises the hair on my neck every time I hear it! #nostrings
Our fan-made trailer got pretty close to Marvel’s- Spader’s voice is almost exact and we even had a Hulk vs Iron Man scene #humblebrag.
But now that the official trailer is here, it’s time to mark your calendars for May 2015 and get ready to assemble!
It’s been a while here at the Kibitzers since we brought you one of our mashup trailers. We hope you’ve missed them as much as we have. This time we thought we’d revisit the origin story of a classic Marvel supervillian, Dr. Doom.
Throwing out the crummy storyline from 2005’s Fantastic Four, Victor Von Doom was born in the European country of Latveria to gypsies. His mother is killed for being a witch and young Victor and his father head out into the wilderness of their war-torn country. Left all alone when Papa Doom succumbs to the elements, little Vickie grows up in a harsh world that turns his soul. Seeking enlightenment and power from an ancient monastery, Doom dawns his armor (and I guess power?) to carry out his evil plot for world dominance.
So maybe there’s a few holes in our storyline but must we remind you this a fan-made trailer?
Still, a lot better than Julian McMahon’s character, right?
Here it is for your viewing/drinking pleasure! Sixty minutes of the scariest and most classic Halloween movies out there. We’re sure you will have your own suggestions for best clips but we trust that by the end of this power hour, you won’t care anymore. WATCH IT HERE!
We FINALLY finished it! Just in time for your last weekend of parties before Christmas… our gift to you… The Xmas Power Hour! Enjoy!
Well it’s finally here… Paramount Pictures released the first official World War Z trailer starring Brad Pitt. And that’s pretty much all we have to say about it…
Online critics and The Kibitzers alike have been pretty harsh on the trailer- most notably for the drastic changes the film seems to have from the book. That, and the ridiculous way in which these “zombies” attack.
Director Marc Foster not only decided to allow his undead horde to be fast-moving (a break from tradition but as we saw in the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake- it can be done) but also to behave like a school of piranha or swarm of locusts. The trailer’s opening scene with Gerry Lane guessing what creature his daughter is thinking of alludes to this wild animal theme.
Paramount and star/producer Pitt also had to bring in Damon Lindelof (co-author of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus) to re-write a new ending for the movie even after footage for the third act had already been shot. Its release date has been pushed back from winter of 2012 to summer of 2013 as well. So it seems World War Z is off to very rocky start. But hey- no one said the zombie apocalypse was easy, and turning it into a successful movie seems even harder…
For now let’s look back at the Kibitzer’s fan-made trailer and see how close we got to the real thing. YouTube users and zombie fans might hate on us for making a fake trailer, but something tells us they’ll be wishing we had been in charge of the film!
