The Happytime Murders | Moustache Trailer Reaction

I thought I was done with trailer reactions this week. But today the Red-Band trailer for The Happytime Murders hit the internet and it's side-splittingly funny! This does for muppets what Team America: World Police did for marionettes.




When a serial killer begins targeting the cast of an 80's TV show - The Happytime Gang - the brother of one of the victims becomes the prime suspect. Now, disgraced ex-cop turned Private Investigator Phil Philips (Bill Barretta) must team up with his former partner, Detective Connie Edwards (Melissa McCarthy) and out-manoeuvre both the Police and the FBI if he's going to catch his brother's killer.




The Happytime Murders is directed by Jim Henson's son Brian, and is the first movie produced by Henson Alternative. Described as a neo-noir puppet crime action comedy, the movie looks to be a hilarious take on the buddy cop/detective drama. It's very crude, rude and deals with some very adult themes in laugh-out-loud fashion. Don't forget to watch out for Henson's innovative use of Silly String. But despite all that, this is still a muppet movie, although you wouldn't want to show it to your kids!




This is one of those trailers that you have to see to believe. But if you like Team America: World Police, South Park, Family Guy or anything similar, you're likely to love this...we certainly did.

The Happytime Murders hits cinemas on 24/08/18.

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 differen…

Dates for Phase 5 of the MCU may have been Leaked

After unveiling Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Comic Con last month, it's believed that plans for Phase 5 will be announced at D23. But have some of the release dates may have already been leaked?



Charles Murphy (@_CharlesMurphy) - someone who is known for revealing accurate info - has tweeted possible release dates for two upcoming movies. According to Murphy (which "could be subject to change"), Black Panther 2 will arrive in cinemas on 18th February 2022, and will be followed by Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on 6th May 2022. These dates are similar to the movies that preceded them, Black Panther was released on 13th February 2018 and GOTG Vol. 2 on 27th April 2017. Both movies had a lot of success in their respective slots, so it makes sense that Marvel would attempt to continue that success with future instalments. It has also been confirmed by James Gunn, that he won't be working on GOTG Vol. 3 until after he's completed production of "The …

JOJO RABBIT | Moustache Teaser Reaction

If Top Gun: Maverick is the most exciting teaser of late, then the teaser trailer for "Jojo Rabbit" has got to be the most bizarre. If you haven't seen it, check it out below:


Taika Waititi's latest movie is based on the book "Caging Skies" by Christine Leunens, and tells the story of Jojo "Rabbit" Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis). A member of the Hitler Youth, Jojo's world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. And the only person he has to turn to as he attempts to deal with all that he's going through, is his imaginary friend...Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi).

Now I know what you're thinking; "this sounds bat shit insane!" And to be fair, you're probably right. But Jojo Rabbit looks - in true Waititi fashion - absolutely hysterical. It is definitely something you have to see to believe, and that's just the trailer. One thing fans of …
