Black Widow trailer, chonky cat and heating!

Well here's a novelty, a post about films that isn't Star Wars! Marvel have dropped their first trailer for the upcoming Black Widow film due for release in May 2020.  Another thing to get excited about!

This will be the first of the Phase 4 series of films and will be followed up in 2020 by The Eternals.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe films have been a wonderful journey and I am really looking forward to seeing where they take things next.

I know this was just a trailer but there's enough there to have me gripped and wanting to see it so job done!

I was off work today as we had a British Gas engineer coming round. Spotted this chunky cat in the back garden delicately balanced on the fence!

The good news is we now have fixed central heating and all of our radiators are working beautifully for the first time in nearly three years! Woohoo!

OK I might have fibbed a little bit about not posting about Star Wars LOL

The Rise Of Skywalker live Q&A

Some of the cast of The Rise Of Skywalker took part in a live-streamed Q&A session today. I do enjoy sessions like these as part of promotional material.

I was also pleased to see this wonderful new poster that has been released.

Clearly they've taken inspiration from the original Star Wars poster

A new TV spot for The Rise Of Skywalker and a lazy day

The hype is real as we enter December and we have less than three weeks to go!

Another TV spot has been released for The Rise Of Skywalker bring the total to 16 now.

After all the fun and excitement of the gig last night it was a lazy day today. Bratwurst for breakfast/brunch with Nailed It Season 2 Christmas and then a whole load of ice hockey catch up. My only real activity was adding some draught excluder tape to the front door which was quite enough for one day LOL.

Amon Amarth @ O2 Academy Brixton

It was off to Brixton tonight with Aaron and Callum to see Amon Amarth at the O2 Academy. It was a sold out gig and the queue wrapped all the way around the block. Thankfully we were there reasonably early so only have to queue round two sides of the building LOL.

We picked up some drinks, found a good spot and then settled in for a night of entertainment.

This was a new band for me. They were a good warm up for the crowd who seemed to really enjoy them. I thought they were a bit samey and had that genre-by-numbers feel about them. They suffered a bit from a muddy mix which was a shame but certainly did their job and got the crowd engaged and fired up so all was good there.

Arch Enemy
This was one band I was intrigued to see live. I quite like the music but have never been 100% sold on the vocals. I have always been impressed with how Alissa White-Gluz manages such a guttural sound with her voice that would give most death metal vocalists a run for their money. She delivered the goods tonight as did the rest of the band. A great set that built on the energy that Hypocrisy had already started generating,

Amon Amarth
This was what we had all been waiting for and they certainly didn't disappoint. We had a nice mix of new and old music and a great stage show. Nobody will ever beat Rammstein for fire at a gig but Amon Amarth had a nice pyro show running.

It was a really good night with some fantastic music and stage show.
