The teaser trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight was released today...
Honestly, these movies all end up being the same. Humans talk. Robots fight. Things blow up.
Or IS it?
It never is.
The movie explodes into theaters on June 23rd.

Looks like the Aquaman movie now has a release date...
The Warner Bros superhero pic starring Jason Momoa and directed by James Wan will hit theaters October 5, 2018 in both 3D and IMAX.
Aquaman made his cinematic debut earlier this year via a short cameo in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The character will next be seen in a major role in the Zack Snyder-directed follow up Justice League, which sees the major heroes of the DC Universe united to face off against DC Villain Steppenwolf.
The Aquaman stand-alone film stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman – AKA Arthur Curry, king of Atlantis – alongside Amber Heard as Mera, Queen of Atlantis in the comics and likely to fill the same role here.
I guess a lot of this film's success is going to ride on how well his character is received when he shows up in the Justice League movie next year.
Fingers and fins crossed.

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming movie, The Mummy, was released today...
Well...not much to see in this short trailer, other than Tom Cruise has "seen her" and she appears to have a vision issue.
Guess we'll get a better idea what actually goes on when the full trailer is released on Sunday (if not earlier).
UPDATE: Here is the full trailer:
The movie opens on June 7th.

Very sad news today...
Florence Henderson, known to generations of television viewers as Carol Brady, matriarch of the ABC sitcom The Brady Bunch from 1969 to 1974 and subsequently an enduring pop culture icon for nearly 50 years, has died. She was 82.
Though best known for her famous sitcom role, Henderson, born in Dale, Indiana in 1934, had a varied career that included acclaimed stage performances, numerous other television appearances, and film roles. Her big break came while still a drama student in New York City at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where after a one-line role in Wish You Were Here, she was cast in the touring production of Oklahoma! in 1952. She would later originate the lead role in Fanny beginning in 1954.
Henderson worked steadily as a Broadway star over the 50s and 60s and moved into television. Among her most notable accomplishments, she was the first woman to guest-host The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. She also was a regular during the 1960s on NBC’s Today.
She landed her most famous role in 1969, starring for five years on The Brady Bunch. Despite its relentlessly cheerful tone and aggressively unthreatening aesthetic despite the tumultuous period in which it aired, the show was groundbreaking for being among the earliest examples of a blended family on television in the United States.
She had an amazing career that spanned decades doing something she loved, was enjoyed and respected my millions world-wide and, those who knew her, only spoke very highly of her.
You can't ask for more than that in any lifetime.
She will definitely be missed.

Very interesting casting choice for Netflix's upcoming Lost In Space series....
Netflix and Legendary’s upcoming reboot of Lost in Space is still over a year away, but we’re very excited about the latest addition to the cast: Parker Posey has signed on to play Doctor Smith!
The new Lost in Space will retain the same basic premise of the original series with a modernized tone and updated characters. In Irwin Allen’s classic show from 1965, the Robinson family of space explorers found themselves hopelessly adrift in the universe thanks to the sabotage of Doctor Zachary Smith. Unfortunately for Dr. Smith, he was unable to escape the Robinson’s ship, the Jupiter 2, before he was trapped on board as well.
I, for one, am very excited about this news. Parker Posey is awesome in just about anything she does and she's always fun to watch.
And to the purists who are complaining that a man should have been cast in this role...
The show premieres in 2018.
