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.

SUPERBOWL TRAILER EXTRAVAGANZA!

They played some sportsball, they showed some commercials, and here’s the trailers for the movies I’m looking forward to the most.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!

John Wick: Chapter 2!

Stranger Things 2!

Yeah, there’s a lot of “2’s” there, which could cause me to go off on a rant about how Hollywood is endlessly retreading concepts… but I won’t. I like all these things, and I’m looking forward to more.

Prey.

Prey isn’t a sequel to the sub-par 2006 shooter of the same name, and from the same company. It isn’t, properly speaking, even a reboot. Instead, it’s “A game with the same name as this other game”.

And here’s the trailer!

Getting a definite Dead Space 2 and Bioshock vibe from this, which is not a bad thing at all, as both games were EXCELLENT. I’m looking forward to this, far more than any other soon-to-be-released games.

Logan, Into the Badlands, Power Rangers—Trailer Trio!

A big day for trailers. We start with Logan, Hugh Jackson’s final Wolverine movie. (Well, he’s been making them for, what, 18 years now?) And just in case you didn’t know—that little girl is VICIOUS.

Next, Into the Badlands, AMC’s post-apocalyptic Western Wuxia series. Season 2 starts in March.

Last, Power Rangers. They’re back, and they dragged Bryan Cranston into this (don’t blink, or you’ll miss his trailer cameo).

And, in movie news, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter debuts in eight days, and John Wick Chapter 2 debuts on February 10.
