With so many movies coming out, it’s been a bit of a task keeping up with the ones for our Pop Culture section here on “The Chronicles” for sure. Much like my PiercingMetal.com site sticks to the superhero and monster films, this site pays close mind to almost anything Disney, Pixar and the other major houses that are putting out quality all-ages releases. Today is Super Bowl Sunday and I’ve read in advance that a lot of trailer were coming or being loaded up direct to their production company YouTube channels. Such is the case with the latest clip for the opening soon “Wonder Park” which was online long before the game began as you can see by our timestamp. I’ve shared stuff about this film already and if you’d like to see what’s come before please click THIS TAG. I’ve embedded different posters in each of these to make it more enticing. Now let’s watch the newest trailer. This film opens in March.
The Premise: A young creative girl named June, finds an incredible amusement park filled with fantastical rides and funny, talking animals called Wonder Land that was abandoned in the woods but soon realizes that the park came from her imagination and she is the only one who can save the magical place and revive the wonder with the help of the animals.

There’s no denying the popularity of the “Fast and The Furious” series of films and if you are someone that enjoys high speed chases, mind blowing spectacles and stunts, then they are right up your alley. Now it seems as though they’ve branched out a little and are building a bit of a universe by letting two of their characters go head to head against an insidious evil. Here is the recently released trailer for “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw”. I’ve shared some premise and initial casting as well as some editorial notations.
Back in December I shared the news about the Google+ Social Network going away and added some editorial notations to the facts because we’ve been using the service for both PiercingMetal.com and this website that you are reading right now. If you missed that posting it’s not a problem since you can check it out by clicking HERE. Just a short while ago, I received an email based on my being a user and I’ve culled it all together for you just in case you also use the network and this message to you went to spam. Dig in, and know that I will close with more editorial afterwards.
You’ve received this email because you have a consumer (personal) Google+ account or you manage a Google+ page.
In December 2018, we announced our decision to shut down Google+ for consumers in April 2019 due to low usage and challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers’ expectations.

On April 2nd, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be deleted. You can download and save your content, just make sure to do so before April. Note that photos and videos backed up in Google Photos will not be deleted. Continue reading Google+: The Countdown To The Shutdown→
