Meet the Baddies of GOTHAM

This trailer focuses on the villains — present and future — that young Det. James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) will encounter on the increasingly mean streets of Gotham City in the Batman prequel series GOTHAM.

Looking at this clip suddenly made me realize a very HUGE problem facing the producers of GOTHAM: How to avoid making Gordon look like a failure and a screw-up! After all, he can hardly take down Penguin and Catwoman before Batman confronts them, so the entire series could be about how the baddies foil Gordon, the last good cop in the city.

Of course, the corruption of the GCPD could be the key to this problem: every time Gordon and partner Haevey Bullock (Donal Logue) arrests Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor) or Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith) the dirty system puts them right back out on the street, thus Gordon is allowed to win many battles but lose the war.

New ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ UK Trailer

The second international trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has dropped, and it does the best job yet of sketching out the premise of the movie — while still making it look like more fun than we have any right to expect!

I’m at the point now where I’m starting to worry just a little bit: Can the movie possibly be as fantastic as it looks? (For example, as it appears in this “Spirit in the Sky” trailer.) Can our wishes come true a second time this year? (Captain America: The Winter Soldier was everything I’d hoped for and more!) Director James Gunn has been very reliable so far…

Let’s hope this movie lives up to the tag line, “You’re welcome.”
