Not a whole lot to say, except Happy New Years! We’re looking forward to bringing you even more music, news, and the best entertainment we can in the new year, we’ll celebrate by sharing some trailers for movies that the boys and girls at Krypton Radio are looking forward to seeing in 2012!
And in no particular order:
Hasbro has brought us many joys and nightmares over the years; toys that inspired cartoons, which inspired more toys and emptied our parent’s wallets. Twenty years later, karma bites us in the butt, as our wallets are emptied from the movies and toys inspired by our childhood memories. Once again Hasbro eyes our bank accounts, as they flash the next movie monster inspired by a toy that’s been around since many of our parent’s were young. BATTLESHIP!
A board game that as far as anyone can remember, never had a story to it, other than to sink the other guy’s boats and give you a reason to taunt your siblings and friends with your uncanny ability to guess the position of little plastic ships. Yet, we see the next sci-fi epic of Battleship, featuring the story of our great Naval Fleet suddenly attacked by underwater alien life forms, using mechs and an otherworldly assortment of weapons in an attempt to wipe out our servicemen.
Men In Black 3
Our favorite duo are back in Black, with Men In Black 3! Agent J must travel back in time to discover the mysterious disappearance of his partner and mentor Agent K, who has suddenly died decades before Agent J was born. It might be a bit of a plot hole… but, if Agent K died years before he met Agent J, how exactly did he recruit Agent J, who goes back in time? More fun that watching a worm suck coffee and smoke Marlboros!
As we’ve previously reported on Krypton Radio, John Carter is the big budget and modern day adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ sci-fi fantasy adventure classic, Princess Of Mars.
We couldn’t say this any better than the synopsis; Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
He’s back for the first time in a big budget adaptation of The Hobbit; the long awaited prequel to the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. Hairy feet, really tall wizards who yell a lot, and much, much more.
The Dark Night Rises
We basically know the story already, but yeah, we’re anticipating this as much as you are. The conclusion to the Christopher Nolan Batman saga, Batman vs. Bane and Cat-Woman. And with the first two movies being better than any previous Batman movie ever made, we’re expecting a mind-blowing ending to the trilogy.
GI Joe: Retaliation
It burns! Ok, so we had really hoped that they had learned from their mistakes in the first movie. The fact it was made in the first place! We have nothing against a G.I. Joe movie, but the first one was just… not that wonderful. This trailer is not that inspiring, but hey, it’s worth watching just to get that GI Joe fix. And the fact that they’ve drafted Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and non-other than world renowned action hero, Bruce Willis, may be the ONLY thing that saves this film… maybe.
The Amazing Spider-Man
Well… Yes, it seems too early for another Spiderman remake, and while we’re interested in yet another interpretation. We, like you are cautiously waiting to see if this is going to be a winner, or a stinker like the last Spiderman movie. As long as they leave out the crying every other scene, then maybe we’ll have a good Spidey movie for 2012.
Marvel’s The Avengers
Last but not least, Marvel’s The Avengers. All we have to say is… “DO WANT!”
