  • ‘Constantine: City of Demons’ Official Trailer (Video)

    ‘Constantine: City of Demons’ Official Trailer (Video)

    John Constantine is back and this time he’s animated. No, I don’t mean his demeanor, I mean the medium chosen to present his latest adventure to the public, for the upcoming DC animated film Constantine: City of Demons. Because I don’t want to bore you with a bunch of nonsense about how Keanu’s take on the […]

  • ‘Castlevania’ Season 2 Coming in October (Trailer)

    ‘Castlevania’ Season 2 Coming in October (Trailer)

    It’s been about a year since the short first season of Castlevania, an animated series based on the video game franchise of the same name, made its bloody way to Netflix. It ended on a cliffhanger, with the evil Dracula still very much at large, and Trevor Belmont still on his way to bringing him down […]

    ‘Disenchantment’ from ‘Simpsons’ Creator Matt Groening (Trailer)

    Not all the trailers to come to us from Comic-Con are for superhero movies. Take Disenchantment, for example, an upcoming animated Netflix series from none other than Matt Groening, who has a pretty good track record between The Simpsons and Futurama.  For this new series, he’s taking on the fantasy genre, and the voice cast includes Abbi Jacobson of Broad City and […]

    ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Official Trailer (Video)

    Late last year, Spider-Man fans (Spider-Fans?) got their first real look at the upcoming animated Spidey adventure Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and now the film has an official trailer out in advance of its release this Christmas. Sony says that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse boasts a “groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind,” in addition to […]

  • ‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’ Season 6 Trailer (Video)

    ‘Voltron: Legendary Defender’ Season 6 Trailer (Video)

    It seems like only yesterday that I heard about a new Voltron series coming to Netflix. But actually it’s been a little over two years since the show premiered, and now we’re already on the cusp of a sixth season of Voltron: Legendary Defender, a trailer for which is now online. In case you’re up on your Voltron […]

  • ‘Home Movies Bingefest’ on Shout! Factory TV

    ‘Home Movies Bingefest’ on Shout! Factory TV

    Shout! Factory TV has been killing it with the marathons lately. They only just wrapped up the Ultraman Leo one, and today they’re kicking off another to celebrate the 19th (??) anniversary of the cult cartoon classic Home Movies. It’s called the Home Movies Bingefest, and it’s happening now on Shout! Factory TV and the Shout! Factory Twitch stream. […]

  • ‘History of Game Controllers’ in 76 Seconds (Video)

    ‘History of Game Controllers’ in 76 Seconds (Video)

    Last week I watched a short film by French filmmaker Alain Resnais, which traced the making of a red plastic bowl all the way back to the origins of Earth minerals. I’m reminded of Le chant du Styrène because a recent video simply called History of Game Controllers takes a similar, if much less ambitious, backwards approach to […]

  • “Only Slightly Exaggerated” Miyazaki-Inspired Travel Oregon Ad

    “Only Slightly Exaggerated” Miyazaki-Inspired Travel Oregon Ad

    No offense intended to the people of that fine state, but I never really thought of Oregon as being a magical, Studio Ghiblian wonderland before. I say “before” because I’ve just watched the new ad from Travel Oregon, which is a total riff on the films of Hayao Miyazaki, entitled “Only Slightly Exaggerated.” The “Only […]

  • ‘Music from The Transformers': Soundtrack Available for First Time

    ‘Music from The Transformers': Soundtrack Available for First Time

    It’s safe to say that the 1980s Transformers toy line has been a resounding success. There’ve been TV shows, movies, and toys, toys, toys, but for one reason or another there’s never been a proper soundtrack release for the music from the original TV series. So it’s pretty cool that Hasbro has announced a new Music […]
