Over the past couple of weeks here in my Media Metropolis, I can tell you that the summer heat has been sweltering and the humidity is enough to make you stay in the house with a giant glass of iced tea in front of your air conditioner while watching your favorite programming on whatever streaming service you prefer. It’s also hot enough to set up a base camp at the nearest beach but I should warn you that you just might have a little company if you do that. Sure, “Shark Week” might have ended a couple of weeks ago but now it’s time for the Carcharodon megalodon to show you he means business. Warner Brothers Pictures “The Meg” opens today in theaters everywhere. Here’s the theatrical poster, some premise and the casting.
The Premise: Five years ago, expert sea diver and Naval Captain Jonas Taylor encountered an unknown danger in the unexplored recesses of the Mariana Trench that forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew. Though the tragic incident earned him a dishonorable discharge, what ultimately cost him his career, his marriage and any semblance of honor was his unsupported and incredulous claims of what caused it – an attack on his vessel by a mammoth, 70-foot sea creature, believed to be extinct for more than a million years. But when a submersible lies sunk and disabled at the bottom of the ocean – carrying his ex-wife among the team onboard – he is the one who gets the call. Whether a shot at redemption or a suicide mission, Jonas must confront his fears and risk his own life and the lives of everyone trapped below on a single question: Could the Carcharodon Megalodon – the largest marine predator that ever existed – still be alive … and on the hunt?

I’ve embedded the official theatrical poster below along with reminder premise and casting. Take a look.
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. (thanks Wiki).

It was a few months ago when I posted the trailer for “Hotel Translyvania 3: Summer Vacation” (which you can see HERE) and now the day has arrived for the film’s opening. You can examine the Official Theatrical Poster by scrolling down and seeing the massive voice cast and premise as well.
Taking place a few months after the events of the previous film, the story centers on Dracula, Mavis, Johnny, and the rest of their family, both human and monster, and friends as they take a vacation on a luxury Monster Cruise Ship, where Dracula suddenly becomes attracted to the ship’s mysterious captain Ericka. What Dracula doesn’t know is that Erika is secretly the great-granddaughter of Abraham Van Helsing, the notorious monster slayer and Dracula’s ancient archenemy. Now it is time for Mavis to be the leader of the “Drac Pack” and rally up everyone so they can stop Erika and save Dracula, before it’s too late. (thanks Wiki).

Hey readers, I hope you had an enjoyable Fourth Of July weekend. Now that the holiday weekend is past us, its time to get small again and I mean down to Ant-Man size as the sequel to his film opens today with “Ant-Man and The Wasp”. As you might already know, he was not a part of the recent “Avengers: Infinity War” which means that film took place AFTER the events that we shall be enjoying in this feature. Let’s get a look at the theatrical release poster, premise and casting to gear you up and in case you missed them on the racks, its still probably possible to get your hands on the issues of the “Ant-Man and The Wasp” themed True Believers comics from Marvel. Just ask your local retailer about them and use THIS POST as a guideline.
Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang tries to balance his home life as a father with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, when Hope van Dyne and Hank Pym present him with a new mission to bring to light secrets from their past, requiring him to team up with van Dyne as the new Wasp.

The summer is here and that means its time to begin unleashing what the studios hope will be the blockbuster film for the season and with that in mind what is bigger than dinosaurs running amok on an island that is out of time? We have arrived at the sequel to “Jurassic World” with “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” and the trailers sure have looked exciting. Let’s check out the theatrical poster, premise and casting below.
The Plot: A volcanic eruption threatens the remaining dinosaurs on the island of Isla Nublar, where the creatures have freely roamed for several years after the demise of an animal theme park known as Jurassic World. Claire Dearing, the former park manager, has now founded the Dinosaur Protection Group, an organization dedicated to protecting the dinosaurs. To help with her cause, Claire has recruited Owen Grady, a former dinosaur trainer who worked at the park, to prevent the extinction of the dinosaurs…again. (thanks Wiki).
