Elvis is scheduled to be released in the United States on June 24, 2022, by Warner Bros. Pictures.

I’m feeling fairly competent that this one is going to be an absolute banger of a film. Tom Hanks doesn’t sign up for crappy scripts.

Now my love for Elvis runs deep. The King has long held a place in my heart since my Granny was bopping to it all the time growing up. And this really looks pretty great. Elvis’ music was absolutely revolutionary and the musical biopic has been pretty popular as of late, If Tom Hanks is attached I’m all in.

This movie comes to me personally at a great time because I have been actually recycling a lot of my Elvis favorites into my daily music shuffles. This all came about because my 3 month olds favorite song is “Suspicious Minds”, yes the song about potential adultery… I don’t know what it is but it works like a soothing lullaby and my baby is knocked. Any, yeah this all is coming at a great time for me personally I just really hope everyone else can out to the theatre for it. Because the musical biopic has got to be one of my favorite genres in film there is. What’s not to love, all the drama and writing of great filmmakers while also playing some of the most iconic and popular music in American or human history.

The King is the King and I think this film is more than long overdue. Elvis absolutely revolutionized American culture, really bringing popular music to a new and far, far more exciting age. The absolute garbage that could pass for a popular hit prior to that…. I mean come on… Elvis was perceived as the coolest thing to happen to music, well ever. I say perceived, because in fact it was Chuck Berry who invented Rock and Roll music. I mean that is an undeniable credit to have. Giving birth to a musical genre… that’s impressive.

I know this one kind of spiraled, but whatever… I’m excited for this movie and you should be too. ALL HAIL THE KING!!!

The official trailer for Lightyear drops. And I’m so in.

Just so we are all on the same page before we get to my thoughts here is a plot synopsis via director Angus McLane…

“‘Lightyear’ is the definitive origin story of Buzz Lightyear — the hero who inspired the toy — follows the legendary Space Ranger on an intergalactic adventure. ‘Buzz’s world was always something I was excited about,’ said director Angus MacLane. ‘In ‘Toy Story,’ there seemed to be this incredible backstory to him being a Space Ranger that’s only touched upon, and I always wanted to explore that world further. So my ‘Lightyear’ pitch was, ‘What was the movie that Andy saw that made him want a Buzz Lightyear toy?’ I wanted to see that movie. And now I’m lucky enough to get to make it.’

I’m all on board for this movie! I am a 29 year old man so the “Toy Story” franchise has existed in pop culture for pretty much the tenure of my recollectable memory.

Who doesn’t enjoy those movies. If you got a problem with that franchise, I’ve got a problem with you! Mixing that franchise with another beloved franchise of mine, that being the Star Wars franchise, is a day 1 ticket in my book. And that looks to be exactly what they’ve done. The planet Buzz seems to be stuck on initially looks basically like Mos Eisley in Star Wars. There are all different kinds of droids and robots walking around. We have an army of helmeted goons. This looks to be heavily attempting to cash in on hype of stuff like Boba Fett and the Mandolorian. And ultimately, who could blame them. Both those are great and if Pixar is at the helm then you can bet your life they’ll find a way to make this work exceptionally.

Really excited to see how they handle the over the top robotic nature of Buzz’s main antagonist the Evil Emperor Zerg! I think you saw his back once if I had to guess. This looks to be a gritty spinoff/reboot in the days of gritty spinoff/reboots and I’m here for it. Best believe I’ll be there opening weekend for this one.

There are two things I know in life. 1. We know nothing about our universe in relation to the ammount of information and knowledge is out there, and 2. If it’s Pixar I will cry actual tears at one point in the movie. So get ready for this one folks. Looks to be a great one!
