The first full trailer for Glass was also released over the weekend...
I really like the cast, although I'll have to watch Split before I see this.
But it's looking pretty good, so far.
We'll see how it turns out when it's released on January 18th.
Star Trek: Discovery also released the trailer for their upcoming second season, which features the original Enterprise led by Captain Christopher Pike...
I refuse to pay for CBS All Access just to see this show, so am just going to wait until it either comes out on DVD or shows up on Netflix.
That being said, the second season looks good and I look forward to one day watching it to see how things play out this season with Spock showing up at some point.
No announcement on who will be playing him, but a part of me hopes it's Zarchary Quinto.
We shall see.

The new Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald trailer was also released today at Comic-Con...
These movies are always entertaining, beautiful to watch, and wildly creative. I'm so glad that we get one of these every couple of years.
The world needs a little magic right now.
I can't wait to go see this when it opens on November 16th.
The first trailer for Aquaman was released today at Comic-Con as well...
Honestly, it doesn't look as bad as I thought it might. The cinematography looks pretty cool, overall.
So, I'm very pleasantly surprised.
We'll see how things turn out when it is released on December 21st.
The first trailer for Shazam was released today at Comic-Con...
It looks like a lot of fun and definitely doesn't have the dark tone of the previous DC movies (except for Wonder Woman), which is a good thing.
I'm looking forward to seeing this when it comes out April 5th.

It looks like a new Star Trek-branded vodka is about to beam onto shelves very soon...
Silver Screen Bottling Company and CBS have just announced another addition to their line of Star Trek themed booze—which a) exists in the form of a Captain Kirk Bourbon and b) somehow does not yet actually feature Klingon Bloodwine—in the form of Ten Forward Vodka, taking inspiration from The Next Generation’s recreational hub of choice.
The Ten Forward Vodka is set to retail for $30 a bottle when it hits shelves and replicators near you soon.
It's a bit pricey for a bottle of vodka. But, I have to remember that it was obviously made in space.
Where no one can hear you drink.

It seems that Jeff Goldblum's infamous Jurassic Park pose is making a comeback in London...
Now TV, a streaming TV service and broadband provider in the United Kingdom, commissioned the statue, which is currently lounging comfortably near the Tower Bridge. It was made to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the original Jurassic Park movie—and, well, to get attention for Now TV, of course, which it is most certainly doing.
That statue face is just a wee bit creepy.
Here is the original shot from the film...
If you can't make it to London to hang out with him there, you can always get one of these at your nearby Target...
This last one might be a bit more affordable than a flight.

The rumored Downton Abbey movie has now been confirmed and starts filming this summer!!
It’s official, the Downton Abbey movie is a go. Focus Features has set production with Carnival Films to begin this summer for a return to all things Crawley. The original principal cast, including Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Hugh Bonneville and more, are set to reprise their upstairs/downstairs roles with Focus and Universal Pictures International distributing.
Creator Julian Fellowes has written the film’s screenplay and will produce alongside Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge. Brian Percival (The Book Thief), who directed the series’ pilot, will helm the film. Nigel Marchant will also return to executive produce.
The game-changing Downton Abbey followed the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them for six seasons on the UK’s ITV and PBS’ Masterpiece in the U.S., garnering a massive worldwide following and helping to kick-off the so-called new golden age of television while making period drama chic again — we also learned terms like “entail” and, famously, mused “what is a weekend?” The series won three Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmys (out of 69 nominations in total) and a special BAFTA. Downton is the most nominated non-U.S. television show in the history of the Emmys.
And this is exactly how I feel about that...

The first trailer for Life Itself (from the creator of This Is Us) was released today...
It's got a great cast (including Jean Smart!) and looks like, yet, another ugly-cry movie for me to add to my list.
The movie opens on September 21st.

To go along with all of the World Cup fever, it looks like Cristiano Ronaldo might just be taking us home with him...
In what would be one of its biggest programming splashes yet, Facebook Watch is in talks with soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo for a reality series about his day-to-day life.
The planned 13-episode series would add to the sports lineup at Facebook Watch, which already distributes the basketball-themed Ball in the Family and Tom Brady close-up Tom vs. Time. While the social media giant has not disclosed viewership data, the strong promotional hooks and manageable production requirements of sports shows make them well-suited to a platform like Facebook.
In May, Watch boarded a scripted soccer drama with Ronaldo attached as an executive producer. That show comes with a series commitment and its other producers include the co-creators of Memphis Beat and former ABC programming chief Paul Lee’s independent studio, wiip.
I have no idea why anyone would watch this.
I stand corrected.

The first poster for the movie Glass, which is a sequel to the films Unbreakable and Split, was released today.
It will be interesting to see how M. Night Shyamalan ties both of those movies and original casts into a trilogy of films. I really enjoyed Unbreakable when it came out 18 years ago and Split is on my list to watch soon.
Here's hoping it turns out great.
Glass opens on January 18th.
