I did not watch “the big game”, but here’s a round up of the trailers dropped during the biggest TV event of the year (in the US)
Are you ready to Rock?
Black Adam casts Dwayne Johnson as an invulnerable alpha-male with a chip on his soldier. Is The Rock lovable enough to counter this anti-hero’s toxic masculinity?
Everyone knows that Chadwick Boseman was Black Panther’s T’Challa. Everyone following the MCU also knows that he passed away. How do you make a sequel to Black Panther without Black Panther? This movie has decided to answer that question by showing you how the rest of the world of Wakanda carries on without their Black Panther. Meanwhile, Namor decides that this is the time to attack.
While I was born too late to have watched them when they came out, even in syndication I was always more of an Addams Family fan than a Munsters fan, catchy theme song not withstanding. The reboot did seem interesting enough to catch my attention, but is it strong enough as a film without being able to draw on nostalgia?
We often include a Hammer Horror film or cult film in our October countdown: this one almost qualifies for the first category and definitely suits the second. The Corman factory decided to cash in on the success of Hammer’s contemporaneous vampire films with softcore erotic elements.

(a) a vampire
(c) all of the above
(d) it’s (c), right? Is it (c)? I bet it’s (c)!
