Black Panther Movie Screenshots

Look, Black Panther looks fucking incredible. There’s really nothing else to be said. It’s a Ryan Coogler film, he re-teams with his DP from Fruitvale Station, Rachel Morrison. Here are some of my favorite images from both trailers:

Ryan Coogler’s other films have arguably been the best of their respective years. Black Panther could very likely join those ranks.

“Thor: Ragnarok” Trailers Go Full Jack Kirby + Screenshots

The Thor: Ragnarok trailers are fucking bananas. There’s no other way for me to describe them. Taika Waititi, the brilliant mind behind What We Do in the Shadows and Hunt for the Wilderpeople, two of my favorite movies, embraces the full Jack Kirby influence of the grander Marvel mythos. He’s not aiming for the cosmic awe of Guardians of the Galaxy, instead opting to mine the roots of the material for all their goofy and wild glory. Mix the first trailer’s excellent use of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” with the second trailer’s heavy synth track Magic Sword’s “In the Face of Evil” and we might just have the most outlandish Marvel movie yet. I can’t wait.

And god damn, that last shot. Surtur!

Here are some screenshots of this insane trailer campaign.

Favorite Screenshots in the “Justice League” Trailers

My taste in movies don’t really vibe with Zack Snyder’s vision of the DCEU trilogy but you know what? I’m not sure he’s made a movie as visually striking to me as Justice League. There’s an almost mythical quality to the images that goes hand in hand with the biblical style approach to the DC storytelling and something Snyder has clearly aimed for with his previous films. The heavy skies, the brighter color palette… it’s all been leading up to this from the opening of the DCEU. I can’t say I’ve been on board with it, but it’s cool to see it realized.
