‘Tis the season for…’90s nostalgia?
Yesterday, it was Google’s fantastic modern recreation of Kevin McCallister’s ‘Home Alone’ plan that brought us all back to that 1990 Chris Columbus classic. Today, it’s Sony Pictures Entertainment that released–a matter of minutes ago–the first trailer for this summer’s latest throwback adventure.
Admittedly, there is no Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones in sight, which is hard not to see in this film series. Regardless, franchise newcomers Chris Hemsworth (comedic role in ‘Ghostbuster’s remake) and Tessa Thompson (‘Westworld’) are teaming up again like in 2017s ‘Thor: Ragnarok,’ just with a more sophisticated style.
Oh, and add in Liam Neeson and Emma Thompson for good measure.
We’ll be able to see what ‘Men in Black: International’ is made of this summer.
P.S. The Thor hammer bit at the end of the trailer was a fantastic ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ tie-in.
If you Google “greatest commercial ever,” then this brand new video will be the top result. Just give it a couple days.
1990 nostalgia gold for the win.
Well played, Google and Kevin McCallister…well played!
“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”
Inspiration comes from many places, often from locations invisible to the naked eye. That’s the reality of the surreal, wonderland-like adventure of a wandering mind. The only thing we can do is exercise that muscle when it flexes.
On that randomly symphonic note, below is “We Shall Fight” from the soundtrack of ‘Darkest Hour,’ which is a film about Winston Churchill’s defining moment of world history-altering leadership during World War II.
Have patience that the crescendo is coming during the time in the film when Mr. Churchill’s warrior-like speech is needed to raise up an entire nation during its–pardon me for being so obvious–darkest hour.
It’s only Monday, but we too must persevere through our varying struggles set for this week.
(If only with the same kind of liquid diet as Winston Churchill).
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
“Eagle 20-Fox 2.”
The American bald eagle is majestic, flying with an unrivaled strength and precision in the air whose only match is a prehistoric dinosaur known as the Pterodactyl. But that’s not here but only back there.
Well, depending on if you want ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ to come true.
Regardless, there’s something else there. There’s an “it’ factor with an eagle that’s difficult to see up close. Distance is required to understand the true power of the eagle.
And yet it’s there when needed most…on a perch or in a cockpit taking a slightly different form than expected.
It’s not the 4th of July, but Eagle 20-Fox knew how to help in the direst situations.
Just sitting and waiting until that moment arrives.
