Welcome back everyone, and happy July 4th weekend! I hope all is well, and it's time for another edition of the Weekly Snap! There's quite a lot of news to cover, most of it good, but some are disappointing, so let's dive in!
Lovecraft Country not renewed for another season!
Sad to say, blerds, but it's true! The hit show from HBO, Lovecraft Country, will not be getting a second season. This comes as a shocker, considering all the love and support the show has gotten from fans! First, Watchman, now this!? Showrunner Misha Green has posted on her social media page her plans for another season, including the United States being divided into different sects, with black folks owning part of the country with magic! The first season was amazing, and perhaps with enough fan outcry, maybe another production company like Netflix can pick up the show! Keep your fingers crossed!
New cast members to John Wick and Transformers
While the latest addition to the story of Baba Yaga a.k.a John Wick is currently in production, some new faces may be seen. Actors Scott Adkins and Hiroyuki Sanada have joined the cast! Newcomers may recognize Adkins from hit movies like Undisputed 2 & 3, Ip Man 4, and Triple Threat! While Sanada has been recently seen in the latest Mortal Kombat movie, as well as Westworld, From the cast and the history of these films, it looks like the next movie's action scenes will be epic! On the Transformers development, actor Ron Pearlman has been cast as Optimus Primal! Fans may recognize him from Hellboy, Teen Titans, Sons of Anarchy, and other movies and shows! With his unique voice, along with voice actor Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime, it's sounding like the Autobots will have some Maximal company!
New Movie Trailers
New film trailers for movies like "Old", "Beckett", " Invasion", Don't Breathe 2", and "Mortal Kombat: Battle of The Realms" has been released this week! Quite a lot of coming attractions in the near future! Personally, I'm still waiting for Marvel to drop this new "Spider-Man No Way Home" trailer! C'mon, Marvel! Drop it already! Maybe they'll do it during the release (finally) of "Black Widow"...
New Video Game News
For fans of Ghost of Tsushima, get ready because an expansion pack is coming, with an all-new island to explore! While I haven't finished the main story yet, I'll be more than happy to dive into the expansion pack! Also, look for titles, like Monster Hunter Stories 2, Curved Space, Warhammer Battlesector, Master Blaster Zero, and others this month!
That's all for this week! Post your comments below, and till next time fellow blerds!
