It was just just under three months ago that we first got the teaser trailer for the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures film “Christopher Robin” and now at long last we can enjoy the official full trailer and speak a little bit about it. I’ve even secured the casting, premise and theatrical release poster for you to examine below. Let’s continue.
The Plot: Christopher Robin, the little boy from the Winnie-the-Pooh stories, is now all grown up and has lost all sense of imagination. Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood re-enter Christopher’s life to help him find it again.
While I was surprised to find another live-action story based on Rudyard Kipling’s “The Jungle Book” but here we are with “Mowgli” which comes care of Warner Brothers and has just released its first trailer. Let’s take a look.
The Premise: The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli raised by a pack of wolves in the jungles of India. As he learns the often-harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own, except by one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins. Continue reading Warner Brothers Presents: “Mowgli” Official Trailer (10/2018)→
The film “The Happytime Murders” is a dark comedy that might call to mind some of the madness that we got from “Team America” but while the latter film was all puppets, this one features a human casting along with puppets and it stars Melissa McCarthy. Check out the uncensored trailer below and be sure to send the kids up to do their homework if you are playing this without headphones. It’s really NOT for their ears. Trust me on that.
All-American Summer Concert Schedule has released their rundown of the free concerts that will be taking place on the FOX News Plaza on 48th Street just off the Avenue Of The Americas and its a wide gamut of stellar performers. Not only are these performances free of charge but they also serve up some BBQ ribs and chicken (unless I’m mistaken). There might even be beer which considering the time is kind of weird but here is the list of shows for you to begin marking down as interest items on your mobile device of choice or one of those handy dandy day planners that use pen and paper. I think its awesome that they do this kind of thing and wish there were more events like them.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: Right off the bat I see a few that I am very interested in but I should admit something to you readers since we are close and all. Despite my efforts to be a part of more of these special showcases, I’ve only managed to catch the one that the legendary Alice Cooper did a few years ago. As they are free, its open to the general public and everyone records every moment of them for their Facebook, Instagram and whatevmer the hell else they opt to chronicle their world on so space is very limited. If you come in as a civilian you are among the crowd even if you decide to blog about it or post your pictures to a branded account like I would do. Now, folks in the unaware should know that these events start super early in the morning which is not always an easy thing for me if I’ve been at a late ending concert or event the night before. Some friends of mine go to these concerts right before their regular workday and I guess its pretty safe to use the excuse that the MTA caused you to be late since their overall services sucks so bad these days. Oh come on now you know I am right about that. So let close this up by asking you which shows you find most interesting and that you would like to attend. You can share your scoop down in the comments section below. Also, be aware that I will be listing every single one of these shows on our Events Calendar and the most topical ones from this list will be featured on the PiercingMetal.com Calendar. Ciao for now.
Though I don’t seem to get to the movies outside of occasional Marvel film these days, I have to admit that this particular film festival sure looks interesting. Take a look.
The Press Release:
Throughout film history, many countries have had their own point-of-pride movie studios; Britain can claim several, whether as backlots or sites of creative capital. In Hammer Films, a genre-oriented counterpart to Ealing Films, the UK could boast of one with all that and more; Hammer’s output in the second half of the 20th century sent aesthetic and sensory frissons throughout the nation while influencing pop culture and world cinema. Although synonymous with horror, the Hammer library was stocked from the beginning with films of all kinds. Founded in November 1934 as Hammer Film Productions and based in London, the studio came out of the gate with dramas and then specialized in “B” pictures and homegrown tales, pausing only for WWII. A turning point came in the mid-1950s with a move into genre fare with an accent on the Gothic, and this first crop of titles in the Quad’s extensive two-part Hammer retrospective demonstrates that—as Universal Pictures had found in the 1930s—famous monsters were a good (and generally inexpensive) way to expand your industry footprint. Hammer finally made its first color movie in 1954; a good thing, too, since what would the next quarter-century of movies have been like without all that scarlet sanguinary screen imagery?
