FARGO S3 Delay, Whiners Bitching ABout STAR TREK BEYOND, Doomsday is NOT The Bad Guy in BATMAN v SUPERMAN? (Images are Amazon links)


is weird, off-beat and yet, it keeps you entertained. And despite the hit power of the series, it seems we will not be seeing a third season of Fargo on FX until 2017 because the production folks "don't have the time to film this winter."

That's a bummer.

But when Fargo does come back, it will more than likely take place in 2010 and we might see some kind of connections between characters in the third season and previous seasons.

We'll see.

Give people a new Star Trek (or any other movie) and there will be a sector of "fans" or "anti-fans" that will piss and moan about something.

In this case, with the new teaser trailer having come out the day before for Star Trek Beyond, you have to admit, it's pretty action oriented. Except of course, for the opening scene.

And folks are pissing and moaning that this new trailer looks more like a modern day action film than a Star Trek film.

So? Studios have to go with what sells these days.  Then again, director Justin Lin has been the guy behind most of the Fast and Furious films, so who is surprised?

Lin had this to say:

Well, its a minute and a half, you know… And again, there were other versions that were much more traditional and I can see where maybe the hardcore fans could probably see that as “Oh.” But with trailers you’re putting a two hour movie into a minute and a half, and the one thing I wanted to make sure is that it hopefully represents that we are trying to be bold and take risks, wether we are successful or not, I don’t know. That was something I was excited to do and with collaborators like Simon and Doug, passion for the franchise will be there regardless.  So however its presented, yeah its a minute and a half, and my challenge to everyone making the trailer is about saying “lets not go off course, I’m not afraid to share — share it, I feel like we have the goods in a two hour run and you really do get to know the characters and hopefully the journey is great. I love it and the cast did an amazing job and the crew… and the inside baseball version of the creation of this Trek was pretty condensed in how you usually make a movie of this size. And I wanted us to be bold, I wanted us to take chances and hopefully in a minute and a half we are able to convey that."


So then, if "we" are all pissed off, I guess we should just scrap the project, not release it, and move on?  Or do we take what we can get and see what the entire film has to offer before we rattle off about things we don't know yet.

And if it is Fast and Furious in Space, so be it. It is Justin Lin.

See the first trailer.

In some of the latest trailers for Batman v. Superman, we see Doomsday popping up and throwing his glove in the ring, so to speak. But if we all pay attention to things like movie trailers, most (non-Disney) trailers usually don't go off and show things from the second and third acts. Usually.

But when we saw Doomsday, the creature that had killed Superman many years ago, I think the mind went there subconsciously, that this was the third act.

But according to the production designer of the film, Patrick Tatopoulous, he suggests that Doomsday is not the final act and that there is something more to come.

"Doomsday isn’t just the final act. Those feeling they may know too much this early, are going to be in for a true surprise."

It could very well be that he is either

A: Pulling our chains to get us off the scent.
B: Hinting at Lex Luthor's additional meddling
C: Something we haven't see yet.

REMEMBER, it's aLEXander Luthor, the son of Lex Luthor, who is channeling the Tim Burton Joker.
