I wonder if, after captain marvel releases, they'll have a trailer with her in it...

Unless she was part of 50% turned to ash.....

My big fear is that Captain Marvel turns up and kicks Thanos' arse on her own, this would ruin things for me. I felt the same way about the Army of The Dead turning up at the Pelannor Fields in Jackson's LOTR trilogy, it belittled the efforts of all that had gone before.

On a wider note it was a missed opportunity to show the might of Gondor (which was badly treated in the movies). Gondor wasn't a single city, she was an empire fighting off foes on all sides and keeping Mordor in check. But instead of Jackson having the men of the southern Fiefdoms leaping off the pirate fleet we get the equivalent of a fluorescent green battlefield nuke, on top of which we have the now god like Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli slaying orcs in droves while the poor old men of Gondor seem utterly clueless. And Where the F**# was Imrahil? 

One of the most powerful moments in the books is the men of Gondor's fiefdoms marching into Minas Tirith before the battle, noble and brave, but less than a tenth of what the people had hoped for.

 

Better stop here, I'm getting carried away.

Totally agree with you, 10,000%. I'm very excited about Captain Marvel, but it would be lame if she didn't work with the rest of the avengers to bring down Thanos.

At last, the first trailer for the conclusion of Infinity War has been released;

They're certainly not giving a lot away...

 

Though they call it a "trailer", it really is more of a "teaser" than anything else.

 

I expect a trailer with more broccoli kicking once Captain Marvel gets released.

Meh.  We just got a 2 minute tease for a 2.5 hour movie.  Marvel has more that earned my trust.  Even the weakest movie in the MCU has been good and I re-watch every one of them when I catch them.

I think I'd be happy rewatching most, but not all. No need for Ironman 3 or Civil War. "Smart" guy with laser beams punches bad guy who melts fist.... repeatedly. "Smart" people decide to be completely moronic elfholes for no other reason than to set up the next movie. I can do without that nonsense. I'd rather watch Thor and Hulk be meat-headed bros than the smart-idiots trope. Least favorite trope ever, to the point that at the end of those two movies I was downright irritated. All the others, even with gripes, I was still at a level of entertainment > gripes. They have a... ~85% rewatchability rate for me then? How many movies are there? Black Panther? Guardians of the Galaxy? Classic Ironman and Capt' America? Thor being... Thor? Yeah, count me in.

I don't think all the marvel movies are rewatchable, there are some other duds...

Thor 

Thor 2:  (although would watch a super-cut of just loki  stealing the scenes) 

Iron Man 2: 

Iron Man 3 

Guardians of Galaxy 2 (exception - frogmouth fight at the beginning) 

Avengers 2

 

But I  have watched them all, and many are just outstanding.

      Kickstarter for a Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers inspired movie, "Netflix-y" in production value and style. Jason David Frank is headlining, and we all know that the Green Ranger/White Ranger is the best Ranger. Figured there's a good chance that there's some MMPR fans in the Reaper community, wanted to get the word out.

      Netflix has released the first trailer for the new Dark Crystal Prequel.  I think it looks really good.  They seem to have done a good job capturing the look and feel of the original:

      And seeing a need for some armored Gelfling soldiers (as seen in the trailer) in my future...

      About
      VERSION FRANCAISE
       COMMANDO NINJA is an 80's action comedy, tribute to the Action Hero Movies, written and directed by Benjamin Combes.
      The story follows a Vietnam Green Beret Vet, Half Commando, Half Ninja, whose daughter has been abducted by a secret Ninja Organization, led by a Central-American dictator, who wants to create a new-world order... through time...
      Follow Commando Ninja on: FACEBOOK
      When I started this project over a year and a half ago, I was driven by a strong love for the 80s (This is David Sandbergs line but I can't say better). 
      I watched again all Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Dolph Lundgren movies; wrote my script, took $5000 of my own money and just started shooting whenever my friends and I had time!
      We have now enough material to create a 45 minute long film!
       Commando Ninja takes place in a variety of exotic locations:
      1980s Los Angeles, Canada mountains, Vietnam War, Central-America, Post-Apocalypse... 
      John will live an adventure through many places ... and times  Everything was shot on real sets, with practical VFX, as they did in the 80's! There is absolutely no way we shoot something on a green screen!
         The soundtrack of the movie will feature famous Synthwave artists like Cobra Copter, Flash Arnold and OGRE.
      The original soundtrack has been composed by a great music composer, Thomas Cappeau, and is by itself a love letter to the 80's action movie soundtracks :
         
         Other famous artists from the 80's revival wave joined the project, among them :
       - Blood+Chrome made the Commando Ninja animated logo

Genuinely impressed by his sword wielding abilities they want Theo involved in their latest heist! But what does Theo want?

      The first teaser trailer is out for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.   I know there's a lot of controversy surrounding Johnny Depp's casting as Grindewald, and the original movie had a luke warm reception (I liked it); but Jude Law sure does make a cool young Dumbledore and I'm interested to see what he does with the character.
