Week in Geek #51: Sonic the Hedgehog Delayed, Ghostbusters High and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, May 25, 2019
Welcome to another edition of WEEK IN GEEK here at Fanboys Anonymous—a rundown of some of the events, news and stories that went down over the past few days in the geek culture spectrum.

This week in geek culture Fanboys Anonymous nerd recap

Here are some of the topics I felt like voicing my opinions about:

Westworld Season 3 Trailer

Oh hey, I don't know what's going on. Must be just like season 2! To be honest, I'm still excited for this, because the first season was so good. Even though the second was needlessly complicated, I'm hoping they've learned their lessons and this will get back on track.

Toy Story 4 Trailer #2

"I've known that guy my whole life...two days!"

They didn't need to have any trailers for this. Based on the strength of the previous 3 movies, I was going to see it by default.

Black Mirror Season 5 Trailers

Smithereens: Sounds like a baby boomer is complaining about people using phones all the time nowadays.

Striking Vipers: I have no idea.

Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too: Not into Miley Cyrus, but the evil Alexa thing is interesting.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Trailer

Al Pacino looks younger right now than he did the past few years. That's good.

This doesn't quite feel like a Quentin Tarantino film to me, and to be honest, if this wasn't a movie with his name on it, I don't think I'd be interested. But since it's a Tarantino film, I'll see it.

True Lies TV Series for Disney+

I can see some potential for this to work, or at least to try. However, part of what made the original something people were into was Arnold, and I assume he won't be in it. Recasting or making up a brand new set of characters in a rehash/reboot/sequel type scenario is probably going to feel really recycled and lame, especially since it's hard to imagine this won't get tiresome if the seasons are too long.

Ghostbusters High

Dan Aykroyd has written a prequel of the three main characters (because obviously, Winston isn't part of the crew until the first film) meeting each other in 1969 New Jersey, with the intent to create a television show out of it.

In theory, I'm down...but let's see what happens with this new Ghostbusters III first.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Vanity Fair

Creatures. Desert. Vague content. Yeah, it's a Star Wars photo shoot that means nothing.

Terminator: Dark Fate Trailer

Terminator 2 is my favorite movie of all time. Don't fuck this up. You're gonna fuck this up, aren't you? Yup.

WHERE. IS. JOHN. CONNOR? Getting more and more worried that this movie is going to pull some bullshit about him being killed off and not the "real" savior or something.

Sonic the Hedgehog Delayed

Now, the movie is coming out Valentine's Day 2020 to allow more time for them to redesign the character. That makes a lot more sense than the November release date they were going for before. Hopefully, it'll be worth it.
