Trailer of The Week: Marvel Comic’s Eternals

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

I wanted to post something a little different for my Trailer of the Week. I think it’s really cool that comic book companies like Marvel and DC, have started to actually make trailers for their upcoming comic books and graphic novels. Marvel Comics released a trailer for their new series, Eternals, which you can check out below. Two of the companies most talented creators will be at the helm of a new Eternals series scheduled to hit digitally and comic book stores early next year. Written by industry vet Kieron Gillen, along with art by the spectacular Esad Ribic (Secret Wars, Thor: God of Thunder), Eternals is going to be a must read. 

One of the most interesting upcoming projects in the MCU is the film, Eternals, scheduled to hit theaters next year. Marvel Comics is always looking for a way to attract new readers, so when a particular character or team is going to be featured in a upcoming movie or television project, they make sure to capitalize on the exposure. Which means putting out a new comic book series featuring the characters from whatever movie or television series is about to drop. Which is exactly what Marvel plans on doing with Eternals. Take a look at the trailer below:

If you want to read a comic book featuring Eternals right away, I recommend checking out The Eternals mini series written by Neil Gaiman that came out a few years back. It’s a great read and you can pick up a copy right here: https://www.amazon.com/Eternals-Neil-Gaiman/dp/1302913123/ref=sr_1_2?crid=3BTQ1U1LDFXFF&dchild=1&keywords=eternals+neil+gaiman&qid=1606623891&sprefix=Eternals+nei%2Caps%2C146&sr=8-2

Or purchase it digitally on your tablet or at your local comic book store.

Chaos Walking: The First Trailer

A few years ago, I read a book called “The Knife of Never Letting Go,” by Patrick Ness. It’s not the greatest title, but immediately it was one of my favorite books. It was written in a way that was bizarre and interesting, and I was captivated from the beginning. The book is the first in a trilogy called “The Chaos Walking” trilogy. I read the entire trilogy as quickly as I could, and while the first book is by far my favorite, the entire trilogy is good.

The film adaptation of these books is coming out on January 22, 2021 (that is of course assuming things don’t get changed in the wake of the pandemic). As far as I can tell from the trailer, which was released today, the film will be adapting the trilogy as a whole and not the first book, and I’m not hating that. Here’s what I think about the upcoming adaptation, and the books, along with the trailer.

Before You Watch the Trailer

I don’t want to say much about these books, because I do think this is a situation in which going in with as little info as possible is going to enhance the experience. The trailer does somewhat spoil some of the secrets of the first book. I think that because of the way they are—necessarily—changing the telling of the story, the reveal of the first book would make absolutely no sense, but if you’re planning on reading the books before seeing the film, I strongly recommend reading at least the first book before watching the trailer.

The trailer shows you glimpses of events past the big reveal of the first book, but I don’t think there is much that is going to be ruined if you’ve read only the first book.

What Can I Tell You Without Spoiling?

Here is one of the things that I think if you pick up the book at a book store, and literally flip through it you would learn, so I don’t feel bad spoiling for you. This book doesn’t follow a layout the way pretty much every novel I’ve ever read has. This book, along with House of Leaves, are the only two books I’ve read, where margins and orientation are inconsistent, and messed with as a part of the story telling.

In this book, (minor spoiler here) we meet Todd, a boy who lives on a planet where everyone’s thoughts are projected aloud into the air for all to see and hear. The constant bombardment of these thoughts to the characters is reflected in scrawling text, sometimes looking like a notebook which has been writing has been written over.

This factor of the world is not a minor aspect, but affects seemingly everything that happens in all three books, and so when I read that the book was going to be adapted, I was genuinely curious as to how it was going to work. Based on what I’ve seen in the trailer it looks like they’ve come up with a pretty cool way of selling it.

Three Books—One Movie?

I could be wrong on this, but based on the trailer, I think they’re telling the whole story in one film, I think it’s a smart decision. In a world in which most novels are better translated into shows than films, I think this book series doing the opposite makes a lot of sense.

The three books while running high on page counts, don’t tell long stories. In fact, it’s very much three acts of the same story. A lot of the page count is dedicated to style and world building, and I suspect that on film both will be done much more efficiently than the novels. I’d rather see the whole story told well over the course of one film, than poorly over the course of three or four.

Ready for the Trailer?

If you’ve read the books already, or you’re thinking that you’re not going to, go ahead and watch the trailer. But this is your last warning. Watching this trailer will spoil what was personally one of my favorite aspects of the book. So I won’t tell you what to do, but like any good parent, I will guilt trip you and just say “I think you know the right thing, I just hope you choose to do it.”

It looks pretty awesome, right?

Trailers of The Week!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

UPDATED: In a move that will have a massive effect on the filmmaking business, Warner Bros/DC have announced that Wonder Woman 1984, will be simultaneously released in theatres and HBO Max on 12/25/20. The movie will be free for anyone with an existing HBO Max subscription, there will be no extra charge like Disney+ did with their release of Mulan earlier this year. This is some damn good new and I’m psyched to finally see WW84!

We will keep you updated as more information becomes available….


Trailers are one of my favorite aspects of the moviegoing experience. Even if the final film turns out to be a complete piece of dog shit, a great trailer can be thrilling and rousing, it can spark your imagination. Of course, as i’ve said in the past, in some ways the art of movie trailers has disappeared for the most part, every once in a while a trailer comes along that blows your socks off. Whenever I find an interesting trailer, I always make a point to post it here on the website to share it with my audience. So I’ve been thinking about making it a little bit more of a formal, weekly column series called “Trailers of The Week”. Sometimes there are trailers that I’d really love to share with you guys, but they don’t necessarily marry their own article here on the website. This way I can let everyone know about all of the interesting trailers I’ve come across each week. Some weeks are going to be better than others, but hopefully will get more fantastic trailers than average ones. So without any further do, I think I have two pretty cool trailers to share with you guys this week.

The first, is the latest trailer for Justice League: The Snyder Cut, premiering on HBO Max early 2021. It contains a lot of footage that we saw in the first trailer, but some interesting moments are expanded, we get a better look at some significant characters, and there is some new and interesting material as well. I have made it no secret that I am extremely excited for this project, I really hope Zack Snyder is able to silence his critics and give us something very unique and interesting for those of you who don’t know at this point the Snyder cut is so long that it’s going to be released as a miniseries on HBO max, I think it’s about five or six hours at this point, I’m not 100% sure. One thing is for sure this is going to be damn interesting superhero project to watch when it finally comes out.


On to our second trailer…

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of the DC Animated Movies that come out three or four times a year. This new film, Batman: Soul of The Dragon, looks particularly interesting. I love the whole retro 70s style and the Bruce Lee, Enter The Dragon “vibe”. Bruce Wayne is one of the best fighters in DC Universe, so it’s very interesting to see a younger Bruce training to become a deadly martial artists. DC Animation have put out their fair share mediocre films, but every now and again they knock one out of the park. Hopefully, Batman: Soul of The Dragon is the former. I love the new aesthetic and unique story. I’m definitely looking forward to give this movie a watch.


Batman: Soul of The Dragon: Available digitally on 1/12/21 and on Blu-Ray on 1/26

Justice League: The Snyder Cut: Premiering on HBO Max sometime in the first half of 2021

SUPERNATURAL: The Final Season (UPDATED!)

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

(UPDATED: WITH NEW VIDEOS AND PHOTOS!)

Hey After 15 Seasons, more than than 1 apocalypse, and a shitload of dead monsters, Supernatural will be riding it’s ‘67 Chevy Impala off into the sunset…

With only a few episodes of Supernatural left, The CW has been sending off the long running and beloved series with the respect it deserves. TV GUIDE even put out a special edition of the magazine, commemorating the end of the fan favorite series…

This Special Edition Issue is now available on stands and online.

The CW has put together some excellent promotional material to psych up fans for the grand finale of one of the most successful shows in the history of The CW network. In particular, some fantastic behind-the-scenes videos have been released and I posted my personal favorites below.They put a spotlight on the show’s legacy, we get a look at how some of the most iconic running jokes and quirks on the show came to be, and the making of the final few episodes. Check them out:

Next up, I loved this new trailer that was released to get people hyped up for the two-hour series finale event. As an avid fan of the series, who’s been watching the show since Season 2, the nostalgia really hard. I’m certainly going to miss The Winchesters, Castiel, Bobby, Crowley and all the rest. However, as much as I’ll miss the show, I think it’s better that they’re going out on a relative high. Even in the later seasons they’ve been able to deliver some phenomenal episodes of television. How many shows with a 15 season run, are able to pull off consistently unique, entertaining, and engaging episodes? I’m sure it wasn’t easy, but Supernatural has been able to sustain its quality and I’m happy to see the series go out on a high note. Check out the trailer below…

They’ve released interesting images from the upcoming final episodes, including the return of some fan favorite characters

This behind-the-image features (L) Lisa Berry who plays the current incarnation of
speaking with episode director, (R) Richard Speight Jr. In addition to playing The Trickster AKA Archangel Gabriel, Speight Jr has directed 11 episodes of the series.


After this week’s gut wrenching episode, I honestly have no idea where things are going in the final 2 episodes. I do know that the next episode has been described as the “Season Finale”, wrapping up the season’s central conflict, while the final episode serves more as an overall “Series Finale”. Here are some cool images from nexts week’s episode, 15×19 “Inherit The Earth” (The “Season Finale” Episode), which shows the return of a major familiar face. This character’s presence could be the edge the boy’s need in their fight against Chuck. Take a look:

Yes, that is indeed Archangel Michael in his vessel Adam, Sam and Dean’s younger half brother. The fact that Adam and Michael have a seemingly symbiotic relationship that almost seems like a friendship, which is very rare for Archangels. This unique relationship has led many fans to dub character “Aichael”. Judging from the photos, he appears to be there to help, but I guess we’ll have to wait until next week to see. So what do you guys think are you excited for the final two episodes of Supernatural? Let me know in the comments below!

NEW TRAILER THURSDAY: The Mandalorian Season 2 & Stephen King’s The Stand!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

One of the most successful series of 2019, The Mandalorian, returns for Season 2 on 10/30 on Disney+. As we see in this new trailer, Mando and The Kid will still be on the run from Giancarlo Esposito’s Dark Saber wielding, Moff Gideon. However what’s really exciting this year is the inclusion of new characters from Star Wars lore joining the show in Season 2. Of course some familiar faces from Season 1, like Carl Weathers and Gina Carano are returning to the show. However, many fans will be focused on the new characters, some of which are making their live action debut. Rosario Dawson has joined the cast as the former apprentice of Anakin Skywalker, Ashoka Tano. Ashoka left the Jedi Order shortly before Anakin went to the Darkside. She never quite left the fight though and has continued on as a Grey Jedi of sorts. Ashoka is one of the stand characters in both Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars: Rebels, seeing Rosario Dawson‘s take on the live action version of the character is very exciting. We can also expect to see Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sakoff as Bo Katan, a Mandalorian rebel leader who fought in The Clone Wars. Finally, in what has been the years in the making for many fans, personally I could take it or leave it, Boba Fett will be making his official appearance on the show this season. So we’ve got a lot of exciting stuff to look forward to starting October 30th…

With the possible exception of The Dark Tower series, many consider The Stand to be Stephen King’s magnum opus. The story follows the survivors of a deadly pandemic that has wiped out the vast majority of the earths population. The survivors find themselves caught in a very real struggle between the forces of good and evil, personified in the form of the loving Mother Abigail played by Whoppi Goldberg and the evil supernaturally powered Randal Flagg, played by Alexander Skarsgard.

(L) Mother Abagail (Whoopi Goldberg); (R) Randall Flagg (Alexander Sarsgard)

The cast also includes James Marsden, Amber Heard, and Nat Wolff. The limited series premieres on CBS All Access on 12/17/20…

The Stand has been of Stephen King’s most influential novels. To this day, genre shows like Lost cite the book as a huge inspiration for the series. Here are some cool images released along with the trailer:

Cool Star Wars Video: What If Order 66 Failed?

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

One of the things I love about having a platform like World’s Best Media, is that I have the opportunity to share content from other talented creators, that people might not otherwise see. There are so many fantastic filmmakers, artists, musicians, and more out there, whose work often gets overlooked. So when I found this very cool video I knew I had to post it. This animated video basically shows us a possible alternate narrative for Star Wars. Using a unique style of animation, this video asks the question: What if Order 66 failed? Anakin has still gone to The Dark Side and a lot of Jedi have died. But what if it wasn’t quite the decimation of The Jedi Order that we see in Revenge of The Sith? In this cool video I’ve posted below, we get to see what might have been. Enjoy…

I think this is probably how things would’ve played out if Order 66 failed. I love the idea of seeing an older Anakin Skywalker, who has gone full Dark Side, but without the debilitating injuries that put him in his iconic Darth Vader suit. Then escaping prison after years of confinement, to face his grown Jedi children. Very cool. It’s almost like “elseworlds” stories frequently seen in comic books.

This project was done by Star Wars Theory on YouTube. They have a lot of awesome videos and I definitely recommend checking them out. You can subscribe to their YouTube channel through this link: https://www.youtube.com/c/StarWarsTheory

Batman: The Animated Series (Short Film) – “The Chase”

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

  I came across this video today as I was looking through YouTube today, and I realized that many of you may not have ever seen this cool animated short (or even knew it existed). Back in 2013 the amazing folks behind Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, Justice League, and Justice League Unlimited, released this short animated film called “Chase Me”. It’s a fun, quick little story about Batman trying to catch Catwoman after a minor heist she’s pulled off. But the whole chase is really a metaphor for the romance and attraction that’s at the heart off their relationship. There’s always the folks behind Batman: The Animated Series understand what makes The Dark Knight tick, better than most. If you haven’t seen “Chase Me” before, you can check it out right here and if you have seen, any excuse to dive back into the world Batman: The Animated Series, is well worth your time. Watch it here:

New Trailer: WandaVision!

Hey Everyone,

Paul here…

As a diehard Marvel Cinematic Universe fan, I feel like I’m going through MCU withdrawals. If it wasn’t for this fucking COVID-19 pandemic, we’d have already seen the much anticipated Black Widow movie, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier would be streaming on Disney+, and we’d be gearing up for the release of The Eternals in a little over a month. I know there are much, much worse things that are happening because of the COVID-19 outbreak and the pandemic is just one of the many shitty things that have happened during this awful year. In my lifetime, I don’t think there’s been a more horrific year for America than 2020 (Let’s just hope 2021 will be an improvement). So by comparison it may seem a little silly to be complaining about a few movies and TV shows that we weren’t able to watch. However, the stories told like the ones in the MCU, allow people an escape from the terrible things going on in the real world, even if it’s just for a little while. It’s like I always say, you can’t underestimate the profound effect of storytelling. Stories are huge part of what makes us human.

On the bright side, they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. It almost seems appropriate for audiences to get a break from the MCU for a little while. Marvel just finished telling one epic story with The Infinity Saga and the next Marvel project to come out will be the beginning of a whole new chapter in The MCU. Finally after delays and rescheduling we finally know what story is going to kick off Phase 4 of The MCU: WandaVision on Disney+. The first trailer for the new miniseries has just been released and you can check it out below. It looks trippy as hell in the best possible way. I have a little bit more I want to say about this very unique looking story, but for now I’ll just start by posting the new trailer. Take a look:

WandaVision doesn’t have a definitive release date yet, but it will premiere before the end of the year. Expect to see WandaVision premiere on Disney+ sometime around early December. So what did you folks think of the trailer for WandaVision? Let me know in the comments below!
