Say G’day To The Badass Polar Bear In HBO’s Full ‘His Dark Materials’ Trailer

'San Diego Comic-Con means trailer upon trailer upon trailer. Already we’ve had  Top Gun: Maverick and It Chapter 2, and now we’ve copped a proper look at HBO and the BBC’s new fantasy giant His Dark Materials.  RELATED CONTENT Swipe to close \t\t \t\t\t\t\t Based on  Philip Pullman ‘s adored trilogy, season one follows the seemingly ordinary but brave young lass Lyra,  played by Dafne Keen  ( Logan ).   While searching for a kidnapped friend, Lyra stumbles upon a sinister plot involving stolen children, and sets out to understand the mysterious phenomenon called  Dust . On her quest, she meets  Will,  a determined and courageous boy. Together they encounter extraordinary beings like armoured polar bear Iorek Byrnison and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living – and the dead – in their hands. His Dark Materials co-stars the brilliant  Ruth Wilson  ( Luther ) as  Marisa Coulter,  Clarke Peters  ( The Wire ) as  Dr. Carne  , the one and only  Lin-Manuel Miranda  ( Hamilton ) as  Lee Scoresby,  and  James McAvoy  (a whole bunch of films) as  Lord Asriel.  Jack Throne ( Harry Potter and the Cursed Child ) and the BBC’s executive vice-president of programming and production Jane Tranter  serve as executive producers. At the very least, it already looks heaps better than that 2007 film adaptation starring Daniel Craig  as Asriel and  Nicole Kidman  as Marissa Coulter. Wonderful times. His Dark Materials  will premiere “this fall” on HBO, so that’s spring for us. From CGI dragons to CGI polar bears, HBO’s rich  as hell. If you’re unfamiliar with the series or it’s just been a while, those animal companions – called daemons – are the physical manifestation of a person’s soul. Lyra’s daemon is a pine marten named Pan,  Lord Asriel’s is a snow leopard. A human and their daemon are considered one being so if you hurt one, you hurt the other. At Comic-Con , Keen described daemons as “a more sensible, responsible part of you. Lyra’s relationship with Pan shows how much Lyra loves herself; and you can see other character’s relationships with themselves through their daemon.” \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t READ MORE \t\t\t\t\t We Regret To Inform You The 'Top Gun: Maverick' Trailer Is Actually Fucken Sick \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t READ MORE \t\t\t\t\t Pennywise Has Mad Tongue Game In The Bloody Trailer For 'It Chapter Two''

'Activision has released the first gameplay trailer for Call Of Duty’s newest mode Gunfight.The mode will launch within Modern Warfare and basically pits two teams of two against each other in fast-paced action.I actually got to play it at E3 and it’s very familiar yet manages to give the franchise a whole new feeling.Basically, the maps are small and you’ve got 40 seconds to eliminate both competitors on the other team.If you don’t do so in the allotted time, it’ll be the first person to make it to a flag (that’s placed randomly on the map) to win the round.Basically, once you’ve won six rounds, you’ll win the game.The thing that keeps this mode interesting is the fact that you spawn with random guns (all four people get the same) at the start of each of the round, so sometimes you’ll be going around with a pistol whilst others you could be wielding a rocket launcher.All three modes that I played were fantastic a swell.Stack is set in a container yard, King is set inside a warehouse  and Pine is a forest location. .

I’ve Spent Far Too Long Analysing The ‘Cats’ Trailer So Now You Must Deal With My Thoughts

Movies Pedestrian TV

Some days, you come to work and just do your job normally, like a regular Joe. And then some days your colleagues accost your eyeballs with the Cats trailer, and your eight-hour work day goes to veritable shit. I think you can work out what day it
'Some days, you come to work and just do your job normally, like a regular Joe. And then some days your colleagues accost your eyeballs with the  Cats trailer, and your eight-hour work day goes to veritable shit. RELATED CONTENT Swipe to close \t\t \t\t\t\t\t I think you can work out what day it is today for me. It’s also Friday. Fridays are always a difficult focus day for anyone, are they not? Put the two together and you have Mel spending two hours watching, re-watching, reading Tweets about and incessantly discussing the fucking  Cats trailer. I am at one with the  Cats trailer. I will dream of this trailer for eighteen consecutive days, I believe. A psychic once told me I had psychic abilities so this prediction is likely true, tbh. Anyway I figured I may as well turn this bin-fire of a morning into something mildly productive, so here they are. My very, very over-analysed thoughts on that godforsaken  Cats  trailer. 1. I Have Realised My Greatest Fear Is Human-Animal Hybrids The reason the  Cats trailer disarms me so much, I have realised, is because human-animal hybrids should not exist. They are the devil’s work. They actually are – I’m fairly certain from my born-again teenage years that at some point the devil made like a half animal thing? Or was that Greek mythology. Whatever. It’s a fact regardless of whether it actually happened in 4,482 BC. lock it away Do. Not. Make. Films. With. Cats. That. Walk. Like. Humans. Do not! Andrew Lloyd Webber should not have made a musical of it, but what was done was done! And then they decided to remind us all that this concept exists! It’s rude and wrong and frankly, I think might be a chargeable offence. Someone look into this. 2. I’ve Figured Out What’s Wrong With The Cast Everyone’s fixated on this batshit casting, aren’t they. Well, ohohohoHO friends, I have watched this trailer enough times to TELL you what the problem is! See, if I can get a bit Pepe-Silvia-meme on you here for a sec, it comes down to groupings. I can accept Taylor Swift and Rebel Wilson in a film together. This makes sense – I’m frankly still incensed no one thought to add Tay Tay to the  Pitch Perfect line-up, tbh. I can also accept Judi Dench, Ian McKellen and Idris Elba in a film together. Three brilliant British thespians! I don’t know what a thespian is. Let’s move on. Three brilliant British… actor people! I can imagine a very serious  Les Miserables take on  Cats with these bad bitches in it, except also it’s not human-animal hybrids and also it’s not  Cats at all, it’s  Luther: The Movie . Time to solve a crime Then you’ve got James Cordon. IDK, like you *could* lump him in with Rebel and Taylor but it doesn’t entiiiiirely work? And don’t get me started on Jason DeRulo. What is he doing here. And then it’s like Jennifer Hudson? I’m sorry, but Jennifer Hudson was cool in 2006 when  Dreamgirls was a thing and she blew us all away with that “AAAAND I AM TEEEEELLING YOUUUUUU, AAAAAAAAHHHHM NOT GOOOOOINGGGGG” brilliance. I will watch that video of her performance every day of my life, but I will NOT accept  Cats trying to re-create it with some much shittier tune. Basically what I am saying here is that you have two films – shit  Pitch Perfect and  Luther: The Movie and then a few stragglers that need to go home, frankly. 3. Do The Cats Have Sex Like Humans Or Like Cats I warned you I’ve been thinking far too much about this. I WARNED YOU. After maybe the fifteenth watch, I started to wonder how these cat people would have sex. Don’t lie, it’s crossed your mind too. look ideally we don’t have to be confronted with whatever the reality is bc this is as romantic as the trailer got My take – the cat-people have sex like people. I don’t want to discuss this any further or think too much about where the bits are. 4. Where Are Their Bits I LIED I CAN’T STOP WONDERING WHERE THE CAT BITS ARE. WHERE ARE THEY. I DON’T WANT TO SEE THEM I JUST NEED TO KNOW I know this seems really like weird and porny and invasive but also you did this, film. You made me wonder, because they’re not at the front. I mean I don’t really know what I want from this film on this front, because seeing a cat penis/vagina constantly would also be alarming but at the same time, this is where my brain is now people. This is where we are. You made your choice. 5. Why Do Some Get To Wear Cat Clothes Why do some have to prance naked and others get to wear full cat regalia? That’s James Corden in a fucking tux. Why? 6. Who Is This I Fucking Hate This One IDK why but I feel particularly enraged whenever this annoying fuck comes up in the trailer. Something about the floppy ears and the weak face. He looks like that irritating hanger-onerer type who is like “hey guys, wanna go to a different bar” and everyone’s like “nah” and instead of pleading his case he just goes “uh ok then” and then someone makes him go get a round of beers and he doesn’t pipe up and say he got the last round, he just does it bc NO SPINE. Do not be this stupid cat. \t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t READ MORE \t\t\t\t\t People Are Losing Their Fucking Minds Over The 'Cats' Trailer And Rightfully So'
