The Force Is Strong In The Last Jedi Trailer..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 This week has brought great excitement to the force and the epicenter has been the 2017 Star Wars Celebration, located this year in Orlando. During this event, there has been panels and other happenings, but the moment the universe has been waiting for has happened and we have our first look at “The Last Jedi”

There you have the first trailer for Episode VIII and Christmas can’t get here soon enough. In this two minute clip, the viewers can quickly tell that we are not got to get any type of flash forward and we are witness to the beginning of Rey’s training. It is a given that it is Jedi training, but where will we see the reality of this episode’s title come into play. The rumors are out there and I can dive deep into them, but that type of discussion will be saved for the podcast (You can find the Nowhere California Podcast on your favorite podcast search engines) or on the comment section of this site. The reality and identity of the LAST Jedi will come into view in December, but that is just a microcosm of this trailer.

 The trailer, as a whole, can be dissected and screams for repeat viewing, so the viewer can hope to catch the slightest hint towards the plot of this film. You can look at the vast landscapes and wonder if you are looking at a rock pile or a surprise character. You can listen to every wave of audio and pin point the source of the whispers. It is a tough mission, but it is a mission the internet is more than happy to accept.

 As the current slate of movie releases have shown, it is an awesome time to be a movie fan and the trailers we have received continue to show that fact to be true. Also, DC and MARVEL can have their dick measuring contests when they release trailers, but the current series of Star Wars has shown their still a force to be reckoned with in the box office. December can’t get here quick enough.

Now for a P.S. to my thoughts on the trailer. This poster is obscene in its awesomeness!

A New Trailer For MARVEL’s Web Slinger..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

This week brought us the newest trailer for the upcoming DC “Justice League” movie and MARVEL couldn’t let their sleeping dogs or web slingers lie, because we have been treated to another taste of “Spiderman:Homecoming” in the form of a new action packed trailer.

This is the second trailer for this new era of Spiderman and the anticipation continues to rise. The first trailer gave us the John Hughes meets comic books world of Peter Parker and this new preview wipes away the angst to give us more of an adult threat with The Vulture, played with brilliant menace by Michael Keaton. Also, we received a clearer look at the possible mentor relationship between Parker and Tony Stark. It would be too easy to label it a father and son relationship, but we all know the downsides of heroes and their parental issues.

 “Spiderman:Homecoming” is a movie this character has deserved for a long time and MARVEL is treating it with the respect other studios seem to have struggled to accomplish. This is a great year to be a movie fan and it’s great to see this web slinger finally come home.

“Spiderman:Homecoming” will swing into theater July 7th

 In the past our convention coverage, our focus would stay on the art of the comic book pages and the creative minds that put pen to page. In this installment of our adventures at the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo, we are leaving the pages and moving to the wall, so we can talk with artist Michael Matsumoto.

 Michael is an illustrator and a conceptual artist that delves deep into pop culture for inspiration. During his continuing elevation in the art world, Michael has developed a following and has picked up freelance work in the form of commissioned pieces. Also, during this time, he has found a place in the convention circuit and this is where we crossed paths.

Childish Gambino is entering a galaxy far, far away and a very important piece of Han Solo’s past has been casted for the upcoming spin off. The rumors have been confirmed and the official Star Wars Twitter account announced that Donald Glover will play the future Baron Administrator, Lando Calrissian. Glover will be joining Alden Ehrenreich, who will be playing a younger and still breathing Han Solo.

 

The last time we saw Lando, who was played by the legendary Billy Dee Williams, was during the events of episodes V and VI of the original Star Wars Saga, but this time around we are going to see Lando and Han’s life before Cloud city. The still untitled entry into the Star Wars universe will revolve around their early life in the intergalactic underworld.

Since there is still a lot of time before the 2018 release, the casting and story information will becoming quickly. As this world continues to grow and the movie begins to get filmed, stay locked into this site and http://www.starwars.com for any new information.
