The trailer for Girl starring Bella Thorne, Mickey Rourke and Chad Faust definitely looks like a drive-in movie feature. As regular readers know, that’s not always a bad thing. I do think the trailer gives away the story but that doesn’t mean I won’t tune in.
A young woman (Bella Thorne) heads back to her hometown, intent on exacting revenge on her abusive father, only to discover someone beat her to it. She soon finds herself prey to a sinister sheriff (Mickey Rourke) and his wicked brother (Chad Faust) as she slowly uncovers a family legacy more disturbing than she ever could have imagined.
Here we have the poster and trailer for George Clooney’s Midnight Sky. Although the poster is just ok, the trailer is interesting. Sadly, I read in some online comments what may be the big twist to the story. I hate when that happens. Since Midnight Sky is on Netflix, I’ll definitely tune in.
Our humanity always endures.
This post-apocalyptic tale follows Augustine (George Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to stop Sully (Felicity Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home to Earth, where a mysterious global catastrophe has taken place.

Why do ya think Clubber Lang never stepped up to fight Drago? And if they did fight… How do ya think that would have gone?
First question first: We don’t know that they never fought. Perhaps they did but the result never made it into the follow-up Rocky/Creed films.
I like to think that after Lang lost to Rocky, he was devastated. Lang had been destroying opponents and thought he was unbeatable. After Rocky knocked him out, Clubber went into a period of isolation and self-reflection. He met a woman who worked with troubled youth. She didn’t follow sports or know Clubber was a boxer. They developed a relationship and Clubber began to work with the kids in an effort to help turn their lives around. Lang had enough money from fighting to retire and he did so he could live a peaceful life with her. (Based somewhat on George Foreman’s life after boxing.)
Second question: If Lang and Drago had fought, how would it have gone? The outcome would, of course, depend on how Sly wanted to move the story forward. No matter who won, Clubber or Drago, then it makes sense he would have continued to fight and we would have heard more about him in the Balboa/Creed movies. Since there was no mention of either fighting again, I think it is safe to assume they never fought. But if they did fight, I’d give the edge to Drago… although Clubber would have always had a puncher’s chance.

Here are the poster and trailer for Dreamland. The poster shows some imagination and the trailer ain’t bad either. (Update – I just learned that the poster is not official and was made by a fan! What an awesome job she did. Her name is Nicole Baroudi and you can see more from her by clicking the link! – Craig 10/28/20)
Academy Award® nominee Margot Robbie (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) “is fantastic” (Indiewire) in this “dazzling” (Hollywood Reporter) love story set amidst America’s struggle during the Great Depression. Eugene Evans (Finn Cole, “Peaky Blinders”) dreams of escaping his small Texas town when he discovers a wounded, fugitive bank robber Allison Wells (Robbie) hiding closer than he could ever imagine. Torn between claiming the bounty for her capture and his growing attraction to the seductive criminal, nothing is as it seems, and Eugene must make a decision that will forever affect the lives of everyone he’s ever loved. Travis Fimmel (Warcraft), Kerry Condon (Avengers: Infinity War) and Lola Kirke (American Made) also star in this “beautifully shot coming-of-age story” (Indiewire).
Featuring: Margot Robbie, Finn Cole, Garrett Hedlund, Travis Fimmel, Kerry Condon, Darby Camp, Lola Kirke
2. KURT RUSSELL PASSED UP A CHANCE TO BE IN STAR WARS TO DO A TELEVISION WESTERN. (Since he hadn’t been offered either of the Star Wars roles he was up for, he made the right decision. A bird in the hand… – Craig)
5. KURT RUSSELL WAS PAID TWICE HIS GOING RATE FOR STARGATE BECAUSE HE WAS CONSIDERED IMPOSSIBLE TO DISLIKE. (Who doesn’t like Kurt Russell? I went to see Stargate and didn’t particularly like it. I went because I like Russell, so it was money well-spent by the Stargate producers. – Craig)
6. KURT RUSSELL MAY HAVE STEALTH-DIRECTED TOMBSTONE. (Turns out that Russell may have directed Tombstone the way that Stallone directed Rambo, First Blood: Part Two! – Craig)
10. Claustrophobia is a big aspect of the film’s fear, but Marshall had no clue how many people were affected by it until he started showing the film to audiences. (My wife does have a bit of claustrophobia and it was getting to her. I don’t have any issues with closed in places and it was also getting to me! – Craig)
14. The sequence where the women see the crawler for the first time, via the night vision camera, was actually their first real glimpse of the creature. Marshall had kept the performers separate so the women wouldn’t see the costumed beasts beforehand. They had the lights off and brought the performer in, and then revealed him as the visibility returned — it went over well with screaming and running on the part of the cast. (The Descent has one of the best monster reveals! You’ll love it! – Craig)
19. The young performer playing the “child” crawler also plays a child zombie in 28 Days Later (2002). (That kid has two of the best films of the decade on his/her resume! – Craig)

Check out Sly Stallone as Jack Carter by Mike W. Lynch! This was Mike’s first time drawing Sly and he nailed the likeness.
Mike Lynch had a contest for a free drawing and my buddy, Ron Wendt aka Darth_Rawn won. Instead of getting a piece for himself, he asked for the Stallone piece above to gift to me! Ain’t friends great?
You can see more of Mike’s art using the two links above (Instagram and Twitter). Thanks to Mike and Ron for a sweet addition to my Stallone art collection.
