Back in April, I shared the first official trailer from the upcoming Warner Animation Group feature “Smallfoot” (seen HERE if you missed it). Now the official “Final” trailer has surfaced so let’s share that along with some reminder premise and casting. Heck, I even tossed in the theatrical poster for good measure. Let’s go.
Back in May, I shared the trailer for the DC Animated Feature “Teen Titans Go! To The Movies” and if you missed that one please click HERE to be on point with the rest of the scoop. Now, as I’ve noted before, the live action DC Universe is a tad lackluster but they sure seem to be doing great things with the animated series and films and with that said I’ve been adding posts about them to the PiercingMetal.com website. With “Teen Titans Go!” being aimed at a younger audience, I decided to post the stuff about it here and that film opens today in theaters everywhere. Let’s take a look at the Official Theatrical Poster, and expanded voice cast list and some premise shall we.
The Teen Titans learn that almost every hero in the DC Universe has their own films, ranging from Batman and Superman, to characters like Aquaman and Alfred! That said, they search for a director for their movie. But the Hollywood director Jade Wilson rejects their offer due to the fact that because of their recent actions over the past few years the Teen Titans can no longer be taken seriously. However, they find a window of opportunity for their own movie by having their own nemesis in the form of Slade, who plans to mind control the entire Justice League and take over the world.

During last weeks Comic Con International: San Diego, the trailers came flying at us with reckless abandon and though I’ve added a “Film and Television” Category to “The Chronicles”, the demands on my time with PiercingMetal along with the fact that I am actually just back from a quick vacation with family finds me utilizing the tactic that I recently adopted for the Warner Brothers Pictures trailers. All of the trailer links below are from The CW Network who as most of you know is the home of a number of DC Comics themed shows. Clicking the logo of the series will bring you over to PiercingMetal.com where each show gets its own narrative. Let’s go.
For the last few days, the Comic Con International: San Diego was taking over the San Diego Convention Center and one of the things that I look forward to from this massive event are the movie and television trailers that get revealed here. Three films that I was most interested in getting a glimpse at were coming from Warner Brothers Pictures with “Godzilla: King Of Monsters”, “SHAZAM!” and “Aquaman”. I didn’t attend this event and am actually enjoying some vacation time with my family. With that being said, I am using The Chronicles to direct you over to the individual posts about each of those films. Just click on the respective logo to be brought to them on the PiercingMetal.com website. I’ll begin with “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” since this was the one that I was most excited about.
Next up, another installment in the DC Extended Universe with “Aquaman” who we all “met” in surveillance video during “Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice”. The King Of The Seven Seas would be a key factor in the “Justice League” film and probably one of its better inclusions. The reports were flying about this being a standalone film like “Wonder Woman” was and not truly connected to the DCEU but that is likely rambling since on many fronts they don’t know what they are doing in this connected universe.
Another superhero movies comes with DC Entertainment’s own Captain Marvel who is NOT being referred to as such in his film to avoid confusion with the Marvel Studios “Captain Marvel” film which will also come out in 2019. Instead, behold “SHAZAM!” (the magical phrase that transforms young Billy Batson into the World’s Mightiest Mortal).
Piercing Ken Thoughts: Normally I wouldn’t lump all of the trailers into one post, but this missive is more of a glorified traffic sign used to direct you to longer summaries over on PiercingMetal. Now that there is a “Film and Television” Category of its own on “The Chronicles”, I will be using it for films of this type and more as often as time permits. The time factor during my vacation found me needing to offer them up like this. While I prefer any lengthy comments be left on the PiercingMetal.com website under the respective narrative, readers of “The Chronicles” are welcome to let us know which of these films they are most excited about. Until we meet again.
As I’ve been ramping up the Film and TV content here on “The Chronicles”, I’m just going to keep on going with this revealed trailer for the new Matt Groenig show called “Disenchantment”. This will go to the Netflix streaming service and after the clip you can check out some premise and the voice cast. Don’t worry, I’ll also toss my personal editorial views in for good measure. Let’s go.
The Plot: Set in the medieval fantasy kingdom of Dreamland, the series follows the story of Bean, a rebellious and alcoholic princess, her naïve elf companion Elfo, and her “personal demon” Luci.
Abbi Jacobson as Princess Tiabeanie
Eric Andre as Luci & Pendergast
Nat Faxon as Elfo
John DiMaggio as King Zøg
Tress MacNeille as Queen Oona, Prince Derek & The Fairy
Maurice LaMarche as Odval, Big Jo & The Washmaster
David Herman as The Herald, Guysbert & Jerry
Sharon Horgan as Queen Dagmar
Lucy Montgomery as Bunty & The Enchantress
Billy West as Sorcerio, The Jester, Mertz & Pops the Elf
Jeny Batten as Kissy the Elf & Tess the Giantess
Rich Fulcher as Cloyd, Turbish
Matt Berry as Prince Merkimer
Noel Fielding as Stan the Executioner
Piercing Ken Thoughts: Since I’m still watching “The Simpson”s and really enjoyed “Futurama”, I’m going to give Matt’s latest offering a chance when it becomes available for streaming. The great thing about this being on Netflix is that no programming of the DVR is required and if you have a few hours to kill then a series like this can be blasted though in a day. I mean “binged”. The trailer seems funny and quirky and plays along with the mystical realms and the whole “Game Of Thrones” angle so perhaps it will be a nice dose of comedic fun. What do you readers think about this trailer? Will you be setting a reminder on whatever means you use to alert you on August 17th when the show becomes available? Chime in down below.
