Aladdin? AGAIN.


I do have to say, I love this Disney film with all my heart.  I swear… #ScoutsHonor, that Aladdin is one of my all time favorite movies.  Our first look at the new recreation however, leaves me a bit confused.  I know for certain that the re-creations of the classic songs (3 can be heard in this first trailer.) are AMAZING, I’m obsessed with the re-instrumentialzation, and the way that they all blend together, and the voice of the cave is spot on… BUT what makes you need to remake such a classic film?  In younger generations, I suppose this story need to be re-told, but don’t fix what was never broken.  Tell us what you think below… And also Will Smith is playing the Genie, so this is going to be interesting.

X-Men: Dark Pheonix, The First Trailer…


“I’ve seen evil, and I’m looking at it now.”  It’s been a long time coming, but the official trailer for Dark Phoenix, the next (and potentially final chapter in Fox’s long-running X-Men saga), is finally here.  Just like his predecessor in the pre-DOFP timeline, it appears that Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) has made the same grave mistake while handling a young Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) as he seemingly opted to once again suppress her dormant Phoenix abilities instead of helping teach her how to control the über-powerful force. Also, while the trailer may be light on actual Dark Phoenix action, save for a quick shot near the end, there’s still plenty of intense footage of all of your favorite returning X-Men as they band together to face arguably their most dangerous – and most personal – threat yet.

The New ‘Creed II’ Trailer Is Here.


For those who followed the old ‘Rocky Balboa’ saga, then know he’s one of the most iconic heroes in cinema history.  The only two runner ups in that franchise were Apollo Creed, and Ivan Drago.  The world saw the son of Apollo a few years ago in ‘Creed’, but now they’re going to get a look at Drago’s kin in ‘Creed II’.  I’ve been looking forward to this match up since I heard from one of the stars about the script, and now I see that Michael B. Jordan has his work cut out for him.  Check the trailer below.

The Captain Marvel Trailer Is Here.


So its been known for some time that Carol Danvers was in line to be Marvel’s most powerful hero.  Captain Marvel (no pun intended, they literally wrote it that way) is the MCU’s newest hero to come to the screen, and her first trailer is here.  From the transition from “Her” to ‘Hero’ you know that there was time and effort put into this trailer, and hopefully the film as well.  It’s refreshing to see a heroine who (although she may get knocked down) can still get back up and do her job.  Shout out Hans for giving me the trailer early!

Memory Cloth In Real Life.


 

The translucent, lightweight, and malleable properties of textiles have been utilized for centuries in architecture, furniture, and apparel design. It sounds like something that comes of out Batman Begins.  But this is real life, typically, stretching fabric onto rigid structural frames requires complex molding and mechanical methods. The new research from ‘Self Assembly Lab at MIT demonstrates a new method for utilizing textiles that can take advantage of its unique properties while reducing the complexity of forming processes. By printing material in varied layer thicknesses onto stretched textiles they were able to create self-transforming structures that reconfigure into pre-programmed shapes. Programmable textiles open up new possibilities for furniture, product manufacturing, and shipping as well as new methods for self-assembly and user interaction.

The Athletic Artworks Of Stephanie Lopez.


Recently I came across the fantastical illustrations of artist Stephanie Lopez of Wilmington, CA.  She’s a CSUEB grad who has a passion for basketball (that definitely translates into her work).  Having an extremely detailed, and slightly caricatured style of drawings, the artist better known as “2Craft” and her works tend to reflect athletes from basketball players to boxers.  From famous movies, to great moments in sports to celebrities, her “Michael Tudor-esque” style of art is definitely work checking out further.  Luckily… you can do that right here.

Slice (Official Trailer)


There’s a new horror comedy on the way from A24 and first-time director Austin Vesely, and it looks like it could be a blast.  Slice stars Deadpool 2 standout Zazie Beetz and Chance the Rapper as two survivors of an ongoing pizza delivery massacre in a spooky small town, who set out to catch the culprits. Unfortunatly for them, this leads to a conspiracy involving a ghost, a werewolf, demonic possession and a gateway to hell.  The red band trailer definitely has a nice throwback feel, which is only elevated by the presence of Stranger Things actor Joe Keery in a supporting role. Check it out below along with a poster and let us know what you think in the comments.
