Infinity War trailer: 

Deadpool 2 trailer: All the shitty 90s Marvel characters that lead me to abandoning the company in one crappy live-action film!!  You couldn't PAY me to see a Deadpool movie.

Fuck Rob Liefeld.

I am very bored of Stark and the universe really needs to shed a few super scientists. (Appalling statement in any other context!)

Off topic a little but I really want to see them mix and match heroes to villains a little. Imagine a police force where only certain cops were allowed to arrest certain criminals? I want to see Captain America fight The Leader (who is still at large) or Banner take on The Mandarin (who is totes real).

That makes me think that the Infinity War should have many bad guys fighting alongside the 'heroes' against Thanos. MARVEL is already pretty good at morally ambiguous protagonists (Black Panther rocked that). I'd likely punch the sky to see Spidey team up with Vulture to beat up Thanos' minions.
Yes!! Arent we all invested in saving earth? It also brings in more possibilities of double crosses.

Yes....
But Deadpool really took off when other people wrote him. His schtick is stale right now for sure (in the comics) but the movie at least is very watchable as an action comedy and really gave the genre an much needed shake.

Im keen to see what happens with the next one.

Anyone interested in The Death of Stalin? I like the idea of telling the story as a dark comedy, almost a Dr. Strangelove vibe, I think.

I saw it a few weeks ago, it is brilliant and hilarious.

Same.
It feels like one of those movies that will endure and remain watchable for decades.
As with all of Ianuccis work.

Of particular interest to me:

The Happytime Murders (August 17)



Think Who Framed Roger Rabbit meets The Muppets, and you’ll have an idea of this long in the making comedy/thriller from Brian Henson. The all-puppet cast of an 80s kids show are being murdered, and only a disgraced cop can stop the slaughter. Yes, of course he’s also a puppet, and with Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Banks, and more along for the ride we’re hopeful this is the best not-for-kids puppet movie since Meet the Feebles. – Rob Hunter

Redband trailer released:

I've been working my way through them, too.  1, 2, 4, and 5 are all great.  I thought that 3 was really bad, though.

Philip Seymour Hoffman makes that movie great IMO

I'm probably getting them mixed up, then.  2 must have been the really bad one.  I loved the one with Philip Seymour Hoffman.
