After only a few episodes in, Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a second season..
CBS All Access has announced today that Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a second season. The original series broke a new record for subscriber sign-ups in a single day, week and month for the digital service.
“In just six episodes, Star Trek: Discovery has driven subscriber growth, critical acclaim and huge global fan interest for the first premium version of this great franchise,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive. “This series has a remarkable creative team and cast who have demonstrated their ability to carry on the Star Trek legacy. We are extremely proud of what they’ve accomplished and are thrilled to be bringing fans a second season of this tremendous series.”
Although I've only seen the first episode (I'm not paying for CBS All Access), I'm happy to hear it's been renewed for another season. I'm hoping to either catch it when it gets released on DVD or if/when they release the first season on Netflix (hopefully sometime later next year).
Regardless, it's good news and I hope the series lives long and CBS prospers.

A new Flash featurette was released for the Justice League this week...
I still think it's a bit weird to have one actor playing the Flash on TV and a different one playing him in the films. But, I'm sure I'll get over it.
The Justice League opens on November 17th.

A new trailer for the upcoming Netflix series, The Punisher, was released today...
This is looking like it's going to be the bloodiest of their Marvel series (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage), so we'll see how all of that goes.
I like the actor who is playing him, but not sure how stabby this is going to end up being, which will determine whether I'll watch it or not.
We'll find out for sure when it's released on November 17th.

A new Justice League poster was released today and, I've got to say, it's a little cheesy-looking.
They just keep releasing new posters of the same characters in different poses and positions. You'd think there would be something a bit more visual (other characters, some action scene, the villain....anything other than just a Vogue pose).
Kind of weird.
But, I'm still going to see it when it opens on November 17th.

The first trailer for the upcoming movie, The New Mutants, was released...
Well, that doesn't look like a very fun movie.
It seems that this series will be going more in the horror movie direction with some X-Men mutants.
Not sure I'll enjoy that.
We'll see how things turn out when the movie opens on April 13th.

The first trailer for the eleventh season of The X-Files was released this week...
It's looking pretty good. Hopefully they'll focus more on the overall story than just one-off creature-of-the-week episodes like they did last season.
But, I'm definitely still in!
The new episodes air sometime in early 2018.

The final Justice League trailer was released over the weekend....
It's looking pretty fun (although still a bit more CGI-y than I would like). Also, it seems that they've beefed up a bit more focus on Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and Wonder Woman, which is just fine with me.
The movie opens November 17th

A new set of Justice League posters was released ahead of the new trailer that is expected to be dropped over the weekend...
I think everyone already assumes that Superman is going to be in the movie, but the studio has not released any individual posters or photos of him from it, so I suppose we're expected to be "surprised" when he shows up.
I'll have to practice that reaction before I go see the movie when it opens on November 17th.

The first trailer for the new Woody Allen movie, Wonder Wheel, was just released today...
Like all of his films, it looks beautifully shot and has a great cast. It's also received some good early reviews at various film festivals, so I'm looking forward to seeing this when it opens on December 1st.
