Coming Soon Trailers: Hobbs & Shaw.

It’s fitting that the last week of July finishes off with a sequel/spinoff in a summer stuffed with them.

Well, it took forever, but finally we get a big screen adaptation of Calvin and Hobbes.  Wait.  They misspelled it.  And who is this Shaw guy?  Is that Calvin’s last name or something.  I’ve got to check my notes…

I mean, c’mon, that actress looks nothing like Susie Derkins!

Crap.  Turns out this week’s only new wide release is not a delightful feature about a puckish child and his stuffed tiger.  It’s “Fast & Furious Presents:  Hobbs and Shaw.”  Fast & Furious Presents?  What, like it’s masterpiece theater now?  You know what, summer of 2019?  You’ve officially stayed too long.  It’s been six weeks since there’s been a movie in theaters I actually had the least interest in seeing.  Just one vast, arid wasteland of shabby sequels, pointless remakes, and dumb, dumb movies.  So fine.  Let’s show the trailer for Jason Statham and The Rock doing the same thing we’ve seen them do a million times.

On the home front, we’ve got…checks notes again…the “true” story of the Illuminati, and Nicolas Cage in a revenge flick.  You know, how about we all just go read a book this weekend instead?
