Black Panther Teaser Trailer



The first teaser for Marvel Studios' Black Panther has landed and it certainly fuels curiosity. After an explosive entry into the MCU in Captain America: Civil War last year, things are looking good for T'Challa's first solo outing.


Directed by Creed's Ryan Coogler, the movie follows the events of Civil War. T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) returns home to Wakanda as king, but his reign is soon challenged by Michael B. Jordan's Erik Killmonger, a Wakandan exile. Also involved - somehow - is Ulysses Klaue (Andy Serkis), a smuggler interested in Wakanda's vast resources. In order to combat this threat, T'Challa will team up with CIA agent - and head of the Joint Counter Terrorism Center - Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman) and the Dora Milaje, Wakandan special forces responsible for protecting the king.


The trailer doesn't give very much away. Everything looks great, Coogler and his team seem to have combined the styles of sleek Marvel tech and tribal Africa. We get a lesson on Wakanda from Ulysses Klaue, who we last saw in Age of Ultron supplying the titular robot with vibranium, a transaction that cost him more than he bargained for! He explains to Ross that Wakanda is not only a reclusive country, but how it puts up a front of being a third world country to protect what is said to be one of the most advanced countries on the planet. Something we catch a glimpse of when we see a ship flying over a beautiful cityscape. There's also a hint of what happens to those who try to take from Wakanda; they have to deal with the Black Panther. And it's certainly not a pleasant experience!


The villain, Erik Killmonger is seen fighting, and causing trouble throughout. He's also responsible for breaking Klaue out of custody. Michael B. Jordan certainly sports an interesting look in this latest role, kind of like if Prince were a Marvel villain. Ready to oppose him are the warriors of the Dora Milaje, T'Challas sister, Shuri (Letitia Wright) who's seen sporting some advanced weaponry and Zuri (Forest Whitaker), an elder statesman said to be T'Challa's link to his father T'Chaka. Coogler described Zuri as T'Challa's Obi Wan Kenobi.


I have to admit, with Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok still to come, this movie felt a long way off. But after seeing this intriguing first trailer, Black Panther is very much on the map.

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so! Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically

Dune | Moustache Trailer Reaction

Like one of the massive space ships that feature within it, the trailer for Denis Villeneuve's take on 'Dune' has landed... and it's magnificent. If you've not seen it, or you simply want to watch it again, you can check it out below: Trying to tame Frank Herbert's legendary sci-fi novel, it seems, is a challenge like no other. But if anyone is up to the task, it's a fair bet that it's Denis Villeneuve. The French-Canadian director is no stranger to reviving beloved sci-fi properties; Blade Runner 2049 is a worthy sequel to the original Blade Runner, and an outstanding movie in its own right - the best of 2017 in my opinion. Add to that his previous projects (Sicario, Arrival, Prisoners), and you've got a director with a talent for combining complex narratives, fascinating characters and stunning visuals, in a way that's both gripping and intelligible. From the moment the trailer begins you can feel the epic scale of what has been created here. G

Long Way Up | Average Guy TV Review

Ewan McGregor, Charley Boorman, and the Long Way Round team are finally back for their third epic adventure, and given how 2020 has turned out, they did it just in time. Right now it's the closest we can get to experiencing these far off places, making 'Long Way Up' a perfect piece of escapism. Beginning their trip at the southern most tip of South America, in Ushuaia, they'll travel 13,000 miles through 13 countries. Their route will have them criss-cross between Argentina and Chile, before entering Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico and the US, crossing the finish line in Los Angeles. This new adventure is quite different to their previous outings, and yet it all feels very familiar. Despite the gang being more than a decade older - not to mention some pretty life-changing motorcycle accidents for Charley along the way - the gang really haven't changed all that much. Not that that should come as much of a s
