Internet, happy Tuesday and welcome to another exciting, exsanguinated, and extraterrestrial extdition of weekly headlines. The segment so hilariously misnamed, it’s passed the point where it was funny, and has just become sad. Heck, I may have made this exact same joke the last time we did weekly headlines, you don’t know. I don’t even know. It’s lost forever. There is literally no conceivable way that it can be located, everyone knows the Internet is a place where things are constantly lost forever, never to be heard from again.

Weekly Headlines 2-16-16

Predator (the Reboot… again) released its first promo image. Look, I have kind of enjoyed the Predator movies, they’re a fun monster franchise (except for when they hang out with those Alien kids from down the road.) But I thought the Adrian Brody re-boot was actually pretty good, so whatever. Bring on another Predator movie, maybe the people from Alien will watch it and learn that the most important part of a monster franchise is actually showing the MONSTER!!

Somewhere the makers of Prometheus are going: “Ohh… so you mean people like the Alien part??”

 

Alice Through the Looking Glass continues to release promo material. It’s weird guys. I (huge Alice in Wonderland fan) am not at all excited about the movie. The plot looks thin/non-existent, and the characters and actors all look tired and played out. But it’s Allan Rickman guys… and I already miss him.

After spending the entire Spectre promotional tour talking about how much he wanted to stop being James Bond, Daniel Craig in a shocking twist of twistification: has probably decided to step away from being James Bond. In other news: skies are blue, cars are going, and Amanda Seyfried is in terrible movies.

Every fiber of his body wants to just get into that car and drive away… forever.

 

In Box Office news, Deadpool was the top movie this week breaking the record for a President’s day weekend movie release. It also broke the record for most people not really understanding how R ratings work.

The X-Files is coming up to its Finale after a gripping season, which very VERY few people actually watched. It’s a perfect example of a show that came back, that probably shouldn’t have, and didn’t really do much to update the formula. It was exactly like it was when it went off the air, and in this case that’s not a good thing. There’s buying a vintage car in perfect condition style and then there’s finding a werthers under your grandma’s old chair. Sure, they’re both technically classics, but one of them is not timeless.

Daredevil Season 2 released its first trailer this week! Looks good! I mean, I enjoyed season 1, I thought Jessica Jones was better but both shows suffered from being a few episodes longer than they should have been. Granted more Daredevil means more shots of this whiny, terrible face so… Yay?

Please… just please go away.

 

Eddie the Eagle released its first trailer and… I don’t know… how freekin’ inspired were you?? I was inspired to go find a van, strap myself to it, and have Hugh Jackman yell at me. Granted, this is not the first time that has happened to me. It will also, not be the last.

Aw, thanks Hugh!!

 

And there you have it guys, the weekly headlines!! Check back Thursday when I (probably) review Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Because Zombies and Matt Smith is a combo I just can’t with good conscience avoid.
