TRAILER TIME! Will Smith + Orcs, Kong is King, and Shadows of Mordor II!

We start this Triple Trailer Tuesday with one for Will Smith’s Urban Fantasy movie, Bright. In an alternate Los Angeles, a human cop and an orc cop team up to locate a legendary blade everyone wants—and will kill for.

Elves, goblins, orcs, mages… should be interesting. I have some reservations, but I’m willing to give it a shot.

Next is the last official Kong: Skull Island trailer before the movie releases on March 10.

I’m still convinced it’s gonna be an anti-war, anti-American preach fest, but I’m willing to give it a shot.

The next trailer was unexpectedly released after Target inadvertently revealed the existence of this sequel to Shadows of Mordor long before the developer was expecting to.

Look, that is simply incoherent, as a part of a Middle Earth. Makes no sense, given the mythos established by Tolkien.

Then again, it’s a game, and as long as it’s as fun as the first game, people will buy it.

The Master of Action is Back!

You may have heard of John McTiernan. Or maybe not. But I GUARANTEE you’ve heard of a small little indie movie he directed.


Then there was this other obscure little flick he helmed…


And, of course, this little-seen, much-overlooked nautical tale…


Well, McTiernan has been AWOL from Hollywood for a LONG time (last movie bowed in 2003), but he’s at last returned to directing. It’s only a commercial for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, but still… maybe he’s back for real.

We can only hope.
