Things That Happened The Week Of

Greetings and welcome to today’s edition of Things That Happened The Week Of AKA the week where 2017 fired up its engines.As far back as fall last year we knew 2017 was going to be a fire cracker of a year, we even have proof. This week we had not one but two great films drop in the form of The Lego Batman Movie and John Wick: Chapter 2. It’s safe to say that both films delivered and in addition we got some great trailers in the coming Ninjago Movie and the Netflix series Iron Fist. 

The Batman has found a new director in Matt Reeves who has done wonders with the Planet of the Apes sequels and The Halloween movie is getting some creative input from the most unlikely of sources in the form of Danny McBride. Castlevania is coming to Netflix, Kevin Smith is going back to the well, South Park: The Fractured But Whole got delayed and much more after the jump!
