Everything you wanted to know about the Aquaman movie in one trailer …
It’s going to be amazing, but maybe they could’ve saved some of this stuff for the actual movie. Still, with my memory, I’ll have forgotten most of it by the time actually I see the movie.
The first trailer was a dud but this actually looks like a lot of fun, plus, Cate Blanchett.
I’ve seen every movie iteration of A Star Is Born …
1937 – Starring Janet Gaynor, and Fredrick March. (very melodramatic)
1954 – Starring Judy Garland, and James Mason. (my all-time all-singing, all-dancing, favourite)
1976 – Starring Barbra Streisand, and Kris Kristofferson. (this one I saw in a cinema on opening night – big Barbra fan here) and a very close runner-up to Judy’s version. I’ve always wanted a fireplace like the one in their house.
… and now, there’s another one, Starring Lady Gaga, and Bradley Cooper. (an unlikely paring you could get)
I just watched the trailer … and you know what, it’s not half bad. 🙂
The Regina-born ‘Merch-with-the-Mouth’ is among us once more!
If you know what I’m referring to, then enjoy. If you don’t, be warned, be very warned!
This year, 2018, will see yet another Quidditch World Cup played, (the tournament is held every four years) but where and when is being withheld from the Muggle world.
However, through means both devious and diverse, and with great danger to life and limb, I have managed to obtain via a well-placed informant within the Ministry of Magic, one J.K. Rowling, an account of the 2014 World Cup tournament’s thrilling final.

Included is an in-depth look at the History of the Quidditch World Cup and qualifying matches of the 2014 season.
It is unknown whether the ‘release’ of these documents constitutes a breach of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy of 1692, or a relaxation of this draconian division between the Wizarding world and Muggledom.
The ‘Quidditch Witch’
This the only known heilographic image of a Quidditch player, Circa 1828, by renowned Muggle inventor Joseph Nicéphore Niépce.
As I was preparing this report, another Muggle agent provocateur forwarded me this fragment of video. Evidence perhaps, that this years Quidditch Cup may be held sometime around the middle of November.
Today was a perfect Spring day. The air was crisp and clear, the sun shone bright, ignoring the occasional scudding cloud. Everything felt like it was gently smiling. What a perfect accompaniment to this trailer.
It connects to the original movie, hooks the attention, shows the lead actors, (Emily Blunt – le sigh) and doesn’t give a thing away … perfect.
Now, I wonder if I had a word with the House of Mouse* I might be able to convince them to STOP RELEASING TRAILERS THAT GIVE AWAY THE WHOLE STORY!!! … but I doubt it. Their promotional people are of the mind that one is good, two is gooder, three is best, and seventeen trailers before the actual premier of the movie, is the bestest idea evah!
* the House of Mouse is a one-size-fits-all way of referring to anything Disney-ish, alluding to its ‘umble beginnings.
To build interest in the new webseries in the ‘Stargate’ universe, ‘Origins‘ (I know, another prequel – but it looks like fun anyway, and it’s only 10, ten- minute episodes) the original movie is playing now on YouTube.
I have no idea how long it’ll be around, so if you’ve got two free hours on a rainy evening, this might just be your cuppa tea.
… and this is the trailer for ‘Origins’
