Justice League Trailer Showcases the Brave and the Bold Mar25

Justice League Trailer Showcases the Brave and the...

Here’s our first trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League! And here’s the first official poster:   By all the New Gods and the Old, that is a fantastic trailer! The thing I’m most pleased to see is that it’s still so clearly a Zack Snyder movie, and that all mind-numbing, click-bait driven criticisms of BvS and the DCEU did not affect the filmmaker-driven style of the film. It manages to convey a lighter tone promised to us even before BvS‘s release not by simply bright colors and quips, but through a sense of optimism and pure glee of seeing these heroes brought together (that Beatles cover goes a...

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri Red Band Trailer Mar23

Three Billboards Out...

Today, Fox Searchlight Pictures released a new red band trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri, the upcoming film from Martin McDonagh, the writer and director of Seven Psychopaths and In Bruges. Normally, this is where we’d provide some sort of personal reaction to the...

Edgar Wright Returns With Baby Driver Trailer Mar12

Edgar Wright Returns With Baby Driver Trailer

The wait is over! We’ve finally been rewarded with the first trailer for Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, which premieres at SXSW this week. Edgar Wright does not disappoint! Baby Driver looks cool as hell and pretty much guarenteed to make everyone change-up their favorite movies lists by the end of the year. While the plot has been compared to Refn’s Drive, that doesn’t really matter considering what a strong an unique voice Wright has. We’re surely in for plenty of surprises, as nothing Wright has ever done has just been a straightforward take on familar topes. On that front, it was a great move not to give away...

Wonder Woman Goes to War in New Trailer Mar11

Wonder Woman Goes to War in New Trailer

Gal Gadot unveiled the second trailer for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman tonight! Watch it and weep in the presence of her glory. ✨Welcome to Themyscria. I am proud to present the NEW trailer for #WonderWoman! ✨ pic.twitter.com/7q7SQ80ut1 — Gal Gadot (@GalGadot) March 12, 2017 And in HD: I’m in love! The great thing about this latest trailer for Wonder Woman is that it doesn’t feel like it’s giving too much of the plot or action sequences away. There’s enough new footage here to continue to build our anticipation while still feeling like it’s holding the best stuff, including the film’s central...

Charlize Theron Kicks Ass in Red Band Atomic Blonde Trailer Mar10

Charlize Theron Kicks Ass in Red Band Atomic Blond...

Charlize Theron has been making quite the name for herself as an action star. Her streak continues with the spy thriller Atomic Blonde, based on the 2012 graphic novel by Anthony Johnston, and directed by John Wick and the upcoming Deadpool 2‘s David Leitch. This looks slick as hell, and may end up being one of the year’s surprise hits, especially if people latch onto it the way they took to John Wick.  Not only is it great to see another badass female action hero, but Theron’s character also appears to be bisexual which is an awesome move for representation and a unique angle we rarely see explored in genre films. As if...

Its All About Family in New The Fate of the Furious Trailer Mar09

Its All About Family in New The Fate of the Furiou...

Universal unveiled a new trailer for F. Gary Gray’s The Fate of the Furious. Well this franchise certainly isn’t backing away from its absurdity or its overuse of the word family. Story-wise, there looks to be some interesting developments (retconning Charlize Theron’s character into the narrative for one), and writer Chris Morgan has developed the relationships between these characters in a way that we’ve grown to care about them, and their ridiculous personas. On the directing side, this is F. Gary Gray’s first blockbuster and the film’s visuals look to be a step away from the goregeous global scenery...

Deadpool 2 Teaser Riffs On Superman Mar04

Deadpool 2 Teaser Riffs On Superman

The weekend’s worst kept secret has now made its way offical online. Here’s the teaser for Deadpool 2 that plays before Logan. Audiences lost their minds when this teaser (really a short film, since the sequel doesn’t have a release date yet) played during my screening of Logan on Thursday. It’s definitely smirk worthy, and the True Romance score that plays across the end is a nice touch, but based on the reaction it got in my screening, it might has well been a gift of manna dropped down from the heavens upon starving massess. Fox’s calvacade of merry mutants certainly won’t be hurting over Wolverine...

YO HO Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Trailer Mar02

YO HO Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No T...

Here’s our first full look at the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie! While a fifth installment may beg the question of who is asking for more of these movies, the billion plus dollars the last installment took in has assured Disney that there’s an audience. We wouldn’t be surprised if this latest entry brings in similar box office numbers, given the property’s global appeal. Personally speaking, the first three films are really strong and remain a nice reminder of the ingenuity of blockbuster films when studios reach beyond comic book properties. Dead Men Tell No Tales could be a return to form after the...

Mindhunter Trailer: Fincher Gives True Crime Fans ...

It looks like director David Fincher will be revisiting familiar ground in the just-released trailer for his upcoming Netflix series, Mindhunter—and with Fincher, that’s rarely a bad thing. He’s tackled serial killers before and if he manages to do on the small screen what he accomplished in Seven and Zodiac, expect this much-hyped series to be among the fall’s most-talked about premieres. The series is based on the book, Mind Hunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, by John Douglas, a former special agent, who worked on some of the most high-profile cases of recent decades, including those of David Berkowitz (“Son of Sam”), Dennis...

Feel the Beat in New Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer Feb28

Feel the Beat in New Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. ...

Courtest of Jimmy Kimmel Live, here’s a new trailer of one of the summer’s most antcipated movies: Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2! Move on over Fast and Furious franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy has their own ex-wrestler to deliver lines about family, and their own mysterious Kurt Russell character as well. We’re really running out of great things to say about awesome this movie looks, and at this point we just want all those spectacular visuals, charming banter, and rockin’ 70s track sspalshed across the big-screen and blaring out of surround-sound speakers. Given the reception of the first film, which hasn’t...

Discover the Dark Side of Paradise in New Alien: Covenant Trailer Feb28

Discover the Dark Side of Paradise in New Alien: C...

Here’s the second trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant! Ridley Scott has said that he’s going back to full on horror with Alien: Covenant and this eerie new trailer has us fully convinced. As some of the new creatures in the trailer would suggest, Ridley Scott seems to have plenty of surprises up his sleeve and will continue to push the mythology of Xenomorphs forward, just as he did in Prometheus. The fact that Scott, at 79, can release big-buget R-rated movies that aren’t based on comic books, and still have creative freedom, is something to celebrate. We’re ready for whatever he has in store for us....

This morning, Tom Hiddleston tweeted our latest look at Kong: Skull Island! New trailer! Kong is back. In cinemas all over the world. March 10, 2017. #kongskullisland #kongisking pic.twitter.com/OLnyGYKLW0 — Tom Hiddleston (@twhiddleston) February 27, 2017 We may not have needed a new trailer for Kong: Skull Island a week before the film’s release, but it’s a hell of a trailer! The movie looks visually spectacular, and seems to possess a sense of humor that’s unexpected but could be quite refreshing. This could end up being one of the year’s surprise hits. Plus, I’m hearing that we’d do well to sit...

A Complete List of Winners from the 89th Academy A...

You know what day it is! It’s Thinkpiece Eve for filmgoers! It’s also Oscar night, the evening of the most prestigious ceremony in the American film industry. We’ve weathered all the scuffles and odds and all of the internet shame for enjoying Oscar season, and here we are. I, for one, admittedly enjoy and actively engage with Award Season, and particularly The Oscars. I view the Academy Awards the same way I view other industry awards– as less of a competition and more of an effort to historically elevate and preserve what we see as the best of our contemporary culture, an effort to engrave what we see as the best...

During tonight’s episode of Legion on FX, Fox unveilved a prologue to Alien: Covenant, fittingly titled, “Last Supper.” The short doesn’t give us any plot details, but it does give us a chance to see the personalities of the crew and get a sense of their working-class...

Stephen King’s Shared Universe Comes Together in Castle Rock Feb17

Stephen King’s Shared Universe Comes Togethe...

Ever full of surprises, J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot has announced a Castle Rock series coming to Hulu. For those unfamilar with the name, Castle Rock is a fictional town in Maine that serves as home for some of King’s most well known works, including: The Dead Zone, Cujo, The Dark Half, and Needful Things. It’s also mentioned in the majority of King’s other works as well. The teaser makes references to a number of King’s stories and characters including IT, Misery, Salem’s Lot, and The Shawshank Redemption. While those stories take place in other fictional towns of King’s creation (Derry,...

Here’s our second look at Rupert Sanders’ Ghost in the Shell! The visuals and production design for this movie still look absolutely fantastic, which should come as no surprise given the look of his previous film, Snow White and Huntsman. While all the trailer thus far have sold...

It’s OK in Chilling It Comes At Night Teaser Feb08

It’s OK in Chilling It Comes At Night Teaser

To say that A24 has been on a roll would be an understatement. Last year, they released what amounted to enough greatness to fill many of our best of the year picks, including two of the best horror movies of the decade with The Witch and Green Room. A24 looks to continue thier tradition of exceptional horror films with release of It Comes at Night, directed by Trey Edward Shults, who brought us last year’s Krisha. Check out the official plot synopsis below: A man (Joel Edgerton) learns that the evil stalking his family home may be only a prelude to horrors that come from within. Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat...

Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn Get Snatched in First ...

Here’s our first look at Amy Schumer’s continuing rise to movie stardom in Jonathan Levine’s (50/50, The Night Before) Snatched. Official Synopsis: After her boyfriend dumps her on the eve of their exotic vacation, impetuous dreamer Emily Middleton (Amy Schumer) persuades her ultra-cautious mother, Linda (Goldie Hawn) to travel with her to paradise. Polar opposites, Emily and Linda realize that working through their differences as mother and daughter – in unpredictable, hilarious fashion – is the only way to escape the wildly outrageous jungle adventure they have fallen into. I think by now everyone has an...

It’s Morphin Time in New Power Rangers Trailer Jan19

It’s Morphin Time in New Power Rangers Trail...

The gang’s all suited up and ready for action in the latest Power Rangers trailer! Despite the first teaser, and reports from various outlets, Power Rangers doesn’t appear to be going to “dark and gritty” reboot angle at all despite taking some obvious cues from Chronicle, a film that inspired director Dean Israelite’s previous film as well (Project Almanac). If anything, it looks pretty close to the cheesiness of the television series, but with better special effects. While I grew up during the show’s highest point of popularity and saw a couple of the movies, I was never invested in the property, so I...

Claws Are Out in Latest Logan Trailer Jan19

Claws Are Out in Latest Logan Trailer

After the exceptional teaser trailer for Logan that was released earlier, we really didn’t need another trailer. But now that we have one, it’s looking more and more likely that the film will finally live up to the promise fans have patiently waited for, capping off sixteen years of Hugh Jackman’s run as the character. An R-rated, sad, bloody, post-Apocalyptic western may be a far-cry from last winter’s Deadpool, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Fox has a similar sized hit on their hands with Logan. And here’s the Red-band trailer for Logan, with more fucks to give: I think Logan may end up being one of...

Our Most Anticipated 2017 Movies

We’re in the hangover stage. We’ve finished our “Best of 2016” lists, we are caught up on Awards Season contenders, drained by the Golden Globes ceremonies, and we’re looking directly into the dull eyes of that movie release deadzone of January and February. So, if you’re like us, you may be in need of an energy shot. If 2017 is anything like 2016, we are going to need movies to come through big with a remedy of escapism, entertainment, and sense-making. So we’ve compiled a forward-looking list of all the things that we are excited for in the upcoming year. — Split (January 20, 2017) Some...

20th Century Fox has released the trailer to Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenent, which will bring the world of Prometheus closer to that of the 1979 film, and launch a new trilogy with Scott at the helm. We hear that Scott is going full on horror with this installment, so if your breathing gets shallow and your chest gets tight, remember, it’s just a chestburster. Alien: Covenant arrives on May 19th, 2017. Featured Image: 20th Century...

Wes Anderson has teamed up with Crowdrise to give fans a chance to win a trip to London and a speaking role in his newest movie, Isle of Dogs.

John Wick: Chapter 2 Trailer Has Us Thinking He’s Back Dec19

John Wick: Chapter 2...

The surprise hit of 2014, returns with a second chapter, and more gun-fu. Here’s the trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2. Admittedly, I’m not the biggest fan of John Wick, outside of the Red Circle club scene, but John Wick: Chapter 2 looks wider in its scope, and will hopefully...

Deckard’s Back in Blade Runner 2049 Teaser Dec19

Deckard’s Back in Blade Runner 2049 Teaser

The film we never thought would happen now has a teaser trailer. Welcome to the world of Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049. Blade Runner is my favorite movie, so yeah, my heart is soaring right now. Just that little snippet of footage looks fantastic. Deckard’s opening narration tugs on the nostalgia strings, and Villeneuve’s direction showcases clear parallels to Ridley Scott’s. But the true star of this trailer is Roger Deakins cinematography. The orange and yellow hues that make up most of the trailer are a far cry from the blue and gray dreariness of L.A., but no less exquisitely shot. If anyone is able to...

Christopher Nolan Takes on WWII in Dunkirk Trailer Dec14

Christopher Nolan Takes on WWII in Dunkirk Trailer

Warner Bros. released the trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, which centers around the the Dunkirk evacuation of 1940. While this film may not be genre centric, it’s still evident that Nolan is keeping the film’s details close to the chest. Regardless of it being Nolan’s first historical piece, never count out the chance for surprise when it comes to one of the modern masters of the reveal. In terms of Nolan’s post-Dark Knight career, this first trailer is surpringly the least flashy and full of intrigue. That’s not to say, that the film doesn’t look epic in scope or haunting in its visual...

This morning, Don Cheadle, Laura Dern, and Anna Kendrick announced the 2017 Golden Globes nominees live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel on the Today show. Jimmy Fallon is set to host the ceremony, which will air live on NBC on January 8, 2017. All of the presumptive favorites seem to be holding strong, with La La Land continuing its bid after a big night at the Critics Choice Awards, and Casey Affleck and Natalie Portman continuing their march to developing favorite status in the lead actor/actress columns. Meanwhile, Deadpool keeps earning unexpected love and it’s nice to see other suprirses likes Sing Street and Colin Farrell’s...

Vehicular Warfare Returns in The Fate of the Furio...

Who needs superheroes? Not Universal as they’ve proved with their billion dollar Fast & Furious franchise. Never would we have imagined that The Fast and the Furious would spawn seven sequels, but here we are still watching and loving them. Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray takes over the reins of the franchise in this installment, The Fate of the Furious (formerly, Fast 8) which sees Dominic Toretto and his assortment of miscreants take on both new and old threats on the streets of NY. The Fate of the Furious has got it all: unexpected villains, unexpected allies, car chases, physics defying insanity, Charlize Theron,...

Matt Reeves’ continues building what’s shaping up to be one of the most exciting and emotional franchises in modern science-fiction with War for the Planet of the Apes. This morning, 20th Century Fox Released the first trailer War for the Planet of the Apes. A poster for War for the Planet of the Apes was also released with the official trailer: War for the Planet of the Apes looks magnificent! This entire rebooted franchise is proof of what happens when a studio and people with creative visions take a nostalgic property and infuse it with new life and relevance. You can see the time and effort on screen here, and the steady...

Spidey’s Back Where He Belongs in Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer Dec08

Spidey’s Back Where He Belongs in Spider-Man...

The trailers keep on coming this week as  Tom Holland stopped by Jimmy Kimmel to debut our first look at Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Homecoming! Plus, the International Trailer has even more footage: Tonally, the teaser trailer mostly hits its mark. It’s light, funny, a bit generic, yes, but  for all intents and purposes, looks like a kids movie that will hopefully evolve and mature as the characters age, a la Harry Potter. The trailer really pushes Tony Stark’s inclusion, which is what we wanted with Spidey joining the MCU, but at the same time, less might have been more, at least for the trailer. Listen, Iron Man has unseated...

I’ll Be Darned, The Baywatch Trailer Is Awesome Dec08

I’ll Be Darned, The Baywatch Trailer Is Awes...

I guess I shoudn’t be too shocked. At bare minimum, the upcoming Baywatch film from Horrible Bosses and The King of Kong Director Seth Gordon combines four of the most astoundingly beautiful and charismatic people alive in The Rock, Alexandra Daddario, Zac Efron, and Priyanka Chopra and unleashes their charms on a goofy property toward which no one should even try to claim nostalgic attachment. So, it’s a winning formula, but let’s not kid ourselves. We did not expect this… Earlier today, Paramount gave us our first good look at the film when they released the theatrical trailer and it’s…. hilarious,...

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer Has Knights & Nazis Dec06

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer Has Knights ...

Yes, there are now five Transformers movies. Transformers: The Last Knight keeps delivering the stuff that has made this a multi-billion dollar franchise: pretty people, Mark Wahlberg’s inventor character, explosions, fighting robots, actors slumming it (Sir Anthony Hopkins has entered the robots in disguise phase of his career), car chases, exotic locales, and people shouting things like “This isn’t over!” What’s new in Transformers: The Last Knight? Nazis and King Arthur. I’m not sure how prominent these elements will be, perhaps they’ll just be part of a montage or the cold open, but at one point you see a...

The Mummy Trailer Offers a New Twist On An Old Story Dec05

The Mummy Trailer Offers a New Twist On An Old Sto...

When they announced they were remaking The Mummy again I wasn’t hugely surprised. When they announced that the cast would be led by Tom Cruise I was massively surprised. Cruise is arguably still the biggest star in the world and The Mummy seems pretty small fry, but once it was announced he was in it along with Russell Crowe (as Dr. Henry Jekyll) Courtney B. Vance, Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond) and Peaky Blinders‘ Annabelle Willis, then suddenly this jumped up into my most anticipated movies for 2017. The trailer offers something new from the cheesy period piece Mummy movies made by Stephen Sommers and Rob Cohen, with the...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer Promises a New Awesome Mix Dec03

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer Promises a ...

Our Saturday nights just got better with the arrival of the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! Set to Sweet’s “Fox on the Run,” Guardians vol. 2 promises more of everything we loved about the first film. It looks like James Gunn is firing on all cylinders both in terms of the script and direction, with the jokes and set pieces coming in fast and hard. What might be most impressive about the trailer is how beautiful new DP Henry Braham’s cinematography looks. Disney’s other big space opera franchise may be back in the mix for the Guardians second outing, but Gunn’s unique vision promises that...

The 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards were announced this morning, as voted upon by the Broadcast Film Critics Association. Damien Chazelle’s musical La La Land led the pack with 12 nominations and Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight followed with 10 nominations, making it all the more likely that these two films will be major Oscar contenders. Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival also recieved 10 nominations, leaving us hopeful that Arrival and star Amy Adams will recieve plenty more love as Awards seasons continues. But it wasn’t all prestige as the BFCA also gave some love to celebrated genre films The Witch, 10 Cloverfield...

Spirit Awards 2017 Nominees Announced

The nominees for the 32nd annual Spirit Awards were announced this morning by Jenny Slate (Parks and Rec, Obvious Child) and Edgar Ramirez (Zero Dark Thirty), providing a soft kickoff to awards season. Those of you looking to get ahead in your Oscar pool may want to pay special attention, as for the last three years, the winner of the Independent Spirit Award for Best Film has gone on to win the Oscar for Best Picture (12 Years a Slave, Birdman, and Spotlight). But, more to the original spirit of the awards as they were founded in 1984, they also represent a celebration of the creativity and passion found in the heart of the independent...

Oh No, Run Away! Trailer Released for A Series of ...

We already warned you not to read about A Series of Unfortunate Events and you didn’t listen. You kept reading and sharing and liking as though that wasn’t exactly what we told you not to do. Well, if you’re a glutton for punishment Netflix has released a full trailer for A Series of Unfortunate Events, which shows that this despicable show is going to be a zany, cartoonish nightmare in the vein of Mr. Sonnenfeld’s Addams Family movies. And look at these poor wretched fools dragged into this horrible situation obviously against their will. Poor actors probably forced to choose between being in this show or ending up...

Kong: Skull Island Trailer Released – It’s Good to Be King! Nov17

Kong: Skull Island Trailer Released – ItR...

Unlike Peter Jackson’s divisive King Kong, Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ take on the story seems to promise more action and more of a 70s, Aliens vibe. Gone are the film crews and screeching starlets, replaced by a scientific team going a geographical survey alongside a military escort. The new trailer for Kong: Skull Island shows that a big part of this survey is dropping bombs on the island and it would seem that at least one inhabitant of the place isn’t super keen on that. Kong: Skull Island looks like a whole heap of fun with crazy monsters, gorgeous effects, and a killer cast. Vogt-Roberts seems to be taking the...
