Steven Panzarella’s Five Most Exciting Movie Trailers For 2013

Movie buff Steven Panzarella counts down his most exciting movie trailers of 2013.

Published

The new year is practically upon us, and with that being fact here are my most exciting trailers for 2013.

Just missing the cut- THE LONE RANGER

#5-IRON MAN 3- This trailer either got rave reviews (although one of my family members gave it a “meh.”) For me, the devil is in the details. Here you have Robert Downey Jr coming off one of his better turns as Tony Stark in THE AVENGERS. You also have the fact that IRON MAN 2 was not anywhere close to being as good as the original. A new cast that includes Ben Kingsley as the Villianous “Mandarin”, Rebecca Hall, Guy Pearce, and James Badge Dale. IRON MAN 3 continues in a spot close to where THE AVENGERS left off and looks to include putting Tony Stark and his loved ones in more danger. It also reunites Robert Downey Jr with his KISS KISS BANG BANG director Shane Black, whom has not done much work since KISS KISS, but being the writer behind the LETHAL WEAPON series, Black could bring a new look to the series.

#4-THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES- What if I told you Ryan Gosling was set to play almost the exact character he played in DRIVE, in a cast that includes red hot Bradley Cooper? That is what we are  looking forward to THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES. Also  reuniting Gosling with his BLUE VALENTINE director Derek Cianfrance, PLACE is a story of a stuntman turned Bank robber, whose crimes put him on a collision course with a good cop, turned politican (Cooper). The cast includes Eva Mendes, Dane Dehaan (CHRONICLE, LAWLESS) and Bruce Greenwood (STAR TREK). It’s got plenty of people talking.

#3 PACIFIC RIM- Visionary monster creator Guillermo Del Toro (PANS LABYRINTH, HELLBOY) was supposed to direct THE HOBBIT, after the film went through many issues and 2 years worth of delays Del Toro handed director duties back to Peter Jackson and stayed on as a Producer/Writer. After leaving Middle Earth, Del Toro went on a quest to make pet project PACIFIC RIM, a story of huge alien monsters that invade earth from a crevice deep in the pacific ocean. In a battle to survive the destruction, we build massive robots called “Jaegers” that are driven by two pilots that are connected via the brain. (Keep up with me here) One pilot takes the left side of the robot while the either the right side and it’s a fight to the death. PACIFIC RIM has already released viral videos including fake news footage of a fake destruction of San Francisco but its first trailer has taken the world by storm and has fan’s thrilled about what they could see this summer.

#2 STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS-Super secretive director JJ Abrams normally does not show us much in teaser trailers and under normal circumstances probably would not have showed us the first few scenes of INTO DARKNESS on IMAX screens prior to THE HOBBIT. Yet, for one reason or another Abrams and company are teasing us for next year’s anticipated sequel to STAR TREK, entitled INTO DARKNESS. Bringing back the whole original cast and including a mystery villain played by Benedict Cumberbatch (WAR HORSE, Sherlock) INTO DARKNESS has us pumped up for what could be the best film in the series. What we know is that Kirk and company, are pitted against an unstoppable force and are drawn to a war torn planet for a face off that could mean the destruction of The Federation.

#1 MAN OF STEEL- Take Zach Snyder (300) , Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer (THE DARK KNIGHT SERIES) with an all star cast that includes Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Amy Adams, and Kevin Costner. A trailer that had grown men in tears at Comic Con and gives me chills every time I watch it. What’s not to like? Superman needed a face lift after the not so good SUPERMAN RETURNS. From the trailer it looks like SUPERMAN is getting the Chris Nolan DARK KNIGHT treatment. A much darker look, a massive cast, and Christopher Nolan as the executive producer/Writer, this is by far the most exciting movie of 2013.

The Pentagon Has Released Official UFO Videos Because 2020 Is The Absolute Worst

Published

on

Aren’t swarms of locusts supposed to be the next installment of this plague?!

Can we finally declare 2020 as the worst year ever? In January there were fears of a third World War. In February the coronavirus began its rapid spread. In March the world essentially shut down due to social distancing and quarantining. And now in April…with only two days left in the month…we have official government footage of unidentified flying objects. I’m sorry but Milton Bradley’s game of “Life” never prepared me for any of this!

The Pentagon has confirmed the authenticity of three videos that have been circulating the web but didn’t really answer what is visible in them. In the videos, now declassified by the Department of Defense, navy pilots capture “unidentified aerial phenomena” aka unidentified flying objects aka UFOs! Pentagon officials were sure to state that the videos do not show “any sensitive capabilities or systems,” meaning we probably won’t be seeing any little green men any time soon.

The first video dates back to November 2004 and the other two from January 2015. Of the Pentagon’s confirmation of authenticity, Pentagon spokesperson Sue Gough said the videos were released “in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.”

So great. We now know that these strange videos are real but what exactly are we looking at? Well, the Department of Defense says it has no concrete answer as to what might be floating around the skies and has classified the phenomena as “unidentified.” And…just like that I suddenly feel less defended.

Social media is having a field day with this revelation of course. The #AliensAreReal has been trending high on Twitter since the news broke. One user referenced Independence Day and said the aliens are “getting ready for July 4th.” Of the bad timing, another wrote “Et tu aliens?” And finally one user couldn’t help avoid sarcasm and wrote”Where’s the space force when you need it?”

Well 2020, you have worked your awful black magic once again. What’s next, cat videos get banned from the internet?! You’ve taken everything else from us!

Priest Accidentally Forgets To Turn Off Filters Before Live Streaming Mass

Published

The internet is having a field day with the innocent mistake of biblical proportions.

With new social distancing guidelines, many churches have closed to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. And while that doesn’t justify all the wine you’ve been chugging during your self quarantine, it does have many people practicing their faith from their homes. One Italian priest was just trying to recite a little prayer for his followers when he accidentally left a filter feature on during the broadcast! In the clip the priest is digitally adorned with a space helmet, workout gear, a fedora and sunglasses and more.

Social media went nuts for the video, which has now gone viral. One comment reads “He just doubled his holy power.” Another reads “Father, Son and Holy Influencer.” One commenter couldn’t resist a good pun and said the video is having a “Mass effect.”

Enjoy your daily blessing and take a look at the funny video below!

Danny DeVito Passionately Urges New Yorkers To Stay Home…And Twitter Agrees!

Published

For the love of Danny DeVito, stay home!

The world is in a dark place right now and I am not sure how much more bad news we can handle. That’s why when I saw Danny DeVito’s name trending on Twitter I froze. Our great nation could very well crumble if anything bad was to happen to such an icon right now. With extreme trepidation I clicked on the social media link and was relieved to see that good ol’ Danny boy is just strumming up hype because he is passionately urging New Yorkers to stay home.

Amid the coronavirus outbreak, Governor Andrew Cuomo has been driving New Yorkers to stay home and has taken every precaution short of shutting the state down completely to help prevent the virus from spreading. Because New Yorkers can be hard headed, it doesn’t hurt to have some famous friends reiterate your message. Big names like Lala Anthony, Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller have all made appearances on Cuomo’s social media pleading with New Yorker’s to heed the governors warning. Only one celebrity was able to make it to Twitter’s trending page however and that was none other than Danny DeVito. DeVito’s message is simple…stay home! In the two minute video, DeVito reminds fans that it’s not just up to the elderly to isolate themselves. “Young people can get it and they can transmit it to old people and the next thing you know – I’m out of there” says the actor. We must save him!

Twitter went into a frenzy with many users agreeing that we need to stay home for Danny. One user wrote “When Danny speaks, I listen.” Another passionately wrote “If you idiots kill Danny DeVito I SWEAR TO GOD.” One promoted DeVito from the icon status I previously awarded him and said “WE GOTTA PROTECT WORLD TREASURE DANNY DeVITO.” 

Take a look at the video below and for the love of the newly minted national treasure, stay home!
