We're not talking about that BWAAAAAM sound from Inception which still manages to catch the ear of most composers. This is a really distinct ramping down sound like WUUUUUUUuuuuum.

Check out this great supercut of it from recent trailers.

After taking a tiny bit of time off after it's late 1990s/early 2000s high, the natural disaster film might be in for a comeback.

When San Andreas opens May 29, featuring a helicopter flying Dwayne Johnson carrying almost everyone in Los Angeles, the film will harken back to the glory days of summer blockbusters centered around the natural destruction of earth.

Remember when Sean Connery turned down Lord of the Rings to be the lead in a horrible adaptaion of Alan Moore's graphic novel The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? The movie flopped so hard, Connery chose to retire from acting altogether, and now fox wants to give it another go.

League follows a group of characters famous from 19th Century British sci-fi/fantasy novels as they team up to take on the most villainous threats. Alan Quartermain, The Invisible Man, Captain Nemo, Doctor Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, and a full vampire version of Mina Harker round out the cast.

Fox tried to produce a TV series in 2013, but it never went beyond the pilot. While it feels like they're just hoping to hold onto the movie rights a little bit longer, let's hope Fox can make something decent from the property this time around.

It's like you can hear the pitch meeting:

"What we made a movie with zombies...





... that are also kids?"

This new trailer introduces you to the more of the band of classic game champions who must join forces to defeat this suspiciously specific alien invasion.

It's also the first time I've realized that the Peter Dinklage character is completely based off of King of Kong's Billy Mitchell.



Dinklage even plays the Donkey Kong champion in PIXELS. So, much like the rest of the movie, it's pretty on the nose.

Given that the last decade of summer blockbusters have mostly aimed right at the nostalgic feels, PIXELS seems like just another in a long run of cynical executive decision making. Let's hope it's more fun than that.
