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...

No One Can Hear You Scream in Alien: Covenant Trailer Dec25

No One Can Hear You Scream in Alien: Covenant Trai...

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 Introduces His New Film Isle of Dogs (And You Can Be In It) Dec21

Wes Anderson Introduces His New Film Isle of Dogs ...

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. The competition is announced with a sneak peek of the new movie and the unveiling of the huge cast of voices in the movie including Bryan Cranston, Yoko On, Greta Gerwig, Edward Norton, Courtney B. Vance, Scarlett Johansson, and, of course, Bill Murray, among others. The competition is in support of the Film Foundation, an organisation created by Martin Scorsese that is dedicated to the restoration and preservation of movies that are facing the threat of being lost to us forever. Movies that they...

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...

74th Golden Globes Nominees Announced Dec12

74th Golden Globes Nominees Announced

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 Furious Trailer Dec11

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,...

The 22nd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards are getting underway at Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hangar in California.

War Has Begun in First Trailer for Planet of the A...

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...

2016 NYFCC Awards: La La Land Wins Best Film Dec01

2016 NYFCC Awards: La La Land Wins Best Film

The New York Film Critics Circle announced their award winners this morning. Founded in 1935, The NYFCC is comprised of film critics from New York City’s most esteemed newspapers and magazines. Members include critics from The New Yorker, The Village Voice, Time, Indiewire, and Rolling Stone.

La La Land Leads the 2016 Critics’ Choice No...

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 Nov22

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 Unfortunate Events Nov17

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...

Jackie Trailer Points to a Tight Best Actress Race Nov14

Jackie Trailer Point...

The Kennedys are an endlessly fascinating family, but so much of the biopics and stories centered around their great and tragic lives have focused on the men of the family. A major part of what makes Pablo Larrain’s Jackie so anticipated is that it’s not only a new angle on this...

Beauty and the Beast Trailer is Enchanting Nov14

Beauty and the Beast...

Disney continues their successful run of live-action remakes of their classic animated films with Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast. Beauty and the Beast tells a tale as old as time and it’s rather obvious from the trailer that this film will be sticking extremely close to the...

Valerian and the Cit...

The first trailer for Luc Besson’s science fiction extravaganza, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets has arrived and in the best way possible, it looks like the spiritual sucessor to Jupiter Ascending that some of us have been waiting for. Besson’s science fiction movies,...

Don’t Watch the Teasers for A Series of Unfortunate Events Nov04

Don’t Watch the Teasers for A Series of Unfo...

A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket is a terrible, awful book series about a trio of wretched orphans who fall into the clutches of a diabolical criminal mastermind, Count Olaf. Netflix have foolishly decided that they want to make a TV series of these books with a cast of actors who I assumed were kidnapped and forced to do it like Neil Patrick Harris, Patrick Warburton, Joan Cusack, and Aasif Mandvi. The whole torrid affair will be directed by Barry Sonnenfeld and written by the official representative for Mr. Snicket, poor Daniel Handler (another hard done by soul who was probably press-ganged into service on this doomed...

Warner Bros. released a new trailer for next year’s The LEGO Batman Movie which looks to deliver the same amount of genuine humor for both kids and adults that made The LEGO Movie such an unexpected success. This movie looks like a perfect satire of the character for modern audiences...

A New Wonder Woman Trailer is Here and It’s Stunning Nov03

A New Wonder Woman Trailer is Here and It’s ...

The newest and most gorgeous trailer from the DC Universe is here. The latest trailer for Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman just dropped and gives us a much closer look at both the conflict at play and the aesthetic being used by DC this time around. The subtle use of comedy that was introduced in Batman v Superman and applied  heavy handedly in this year’s Suicide Squad appears to fit in much more seamlessly in Wonder Woman, largely due to Chris Pine’s natural charisma and Gal Gadot’s deadpan delivery. The feminine touch of Patty Jenkins can’t hurt either. In this trailer we get a glimpse of where Wonder...

The Trailer for T2: Trainspotting has Arrived Nov03

The Trailer for T2: Trainspotting has Arrived

I knew Irvine Welsh had written sequel, prequel and spin-off novels to his original masterpiece, Trainspotting, but I never thought the movie would get a sequel, especially not twenty years later. Even more surprising is that I never imagined myself getting this excited at the prospect of seeing Renton, Sick Boy, Spud, Begbie, and Diane again. The full trailer has dropped for the sequel, T2: Trainspotting, and it promises to have the same energy and creativity of the original 1996 classic. The cast has returned, Danny Boyle has returned, John Hodge has returned, and it all looks as though they’ve simply stepped right back into the...

Ooga Chaka! Our first look at the hotly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may not give us any hints about the storyline or even its Awesome Mix Vol. 2, but it truly is great to see these characters back on the screen again...

Assassin’s Creed Trailer #2 Doubles Down on Stunts and Visuals Oct18

Assassin’s Cre...

Shying away from the typically ominous tone of most Assassin’s Creed trailers (both for the video games and the film), the second trailer for Fox’s Assassin’s Creed movie puts emphasis on the peculiar and the extreme. The trailer quickly establishes the fundamentals; Callum Lynch (Michael...

Final Star Wars: Rogue One Trailer is All the Hope We Need Oct13

Final Star Wars: Rogue One Trailer is All the Hope...

The latest, and final trailer for Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, finally gives us a sense of the larger conflict at play and introduces Mads Mikkelsen’s character into the fold. While rumors have flown for half the year about post-production changes and Disney’s desire to give the film a lighter tone, this trailer depicts the film we were promised: a war film in Edwards’ unmistakable style. Sure, the trailer leans heavily on optimism and a few familiar story beats, but we were never going to get a Full Metal Jacket-styled Star Wars film. Ultimately this is a universe geared towards hope and younger...

New Trailer for Ben Wheatley’s Free Fire Sep09

New Trailer for Ben ...

A quiet domestic drama about gangsters, a horror film about assassins and cults, a comedy about serial killers, a hallucinogenic fever dream set in the English Civil War, and High-Rise. Ben Wheatley’s directorial output is as diverse as they come, and it seems like he’ll be...

Rogue One Trailer is a Near Olympic Feat Aug11

Rogue One Trailer is a Near Olympic Feat

It’s not all fantastic feats of athleticism at the Olympics as a part of NBC’s primetime coverage has been devoted to release of the full trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This is basically a gold medal for all us nerds out there so let’s bask in the glory! Forget all the talk of re-shoots and tonal shifts, forget talk of box office and budgets, forget franchise fatigue and take a second to realize how lucky we are to see the Star Wars universe expanded in new and exciting ways. Like the Episode VII trailers, plot details are still sparse but the music, visuals, and a glimpse of one notorious heavy-breather are...

Another year, another Comic Con. The Woods kicked off the excitement at SDCC when, to everyone’s surprise, the Adam Wingard directed film revealed itself to be a sequel to The Blair Witch Project. Early buzz is, as the kids say, fire. I’m going to link the trailer but be warned:...

Brie Larson is Your Captain Marvel

Brie Larson took to the Hall H stage at SDCC to confirm that she will in fact be playing Carol Danvers in the upcoming MCU film. One of the most celebrated characters in the Marvel Universe, Captain Marvel will be the studios first female-led superhero movie. The film is scheduled for a March 8th, 2019 release. In the coming months we’ll have the latest on the film’s production and a Comics-to-Film Primer detailing everything you need to know about the character and the movie! Featured Image: Warner Bros.

Marvel Conjures Up a New Doctor Strange Trailer Jul23

Marvel Conjures Up a New Doctor Strange Trailer

Marvel released a full trailer for Doctor Strange at their SDCC panel! Scott Derrikson’s film looks decidedly darker and more serious-minded that what we’ve become accustomed to with recent Marvel films. It seems like Doctor Strange is definitely catering towards the older age group that the comics originally attracted, but that mighty Marvel sense of wonder and heroism is still on display. With it’s kaleidoscopic visuals, Doctor Strange easily looks like Marvel’s most visually interesting film and it could do wonders for setting it apart from the rest of fantasy-oriented pop culture. It’s been a long road...

The Once and Future King Returns in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Jul23

The Once and Future King Returns in King Arthur: L...

Guy Ritchie’s latest film offers a new take on the legend of King Arthur and his mighty Excalibur!   King Arthur certainly looks like a Guy Ritchie film and a far cry from Sir Thomas Mallory, but given the amount of Arthur films we’ve seen over the decades, we could use a fresh perspective. Said to offer magical-realism, King Arthur looks like it will blend Ritchie penchant for tough, working class life, quick-cut editing, and a blend of high fantasy. While it’s too early to tell if the film will succeed in its tonal and stylistic balance, I’m always rooting for Ritchie and stand behind Charlie Hunnam’s...

Kong is Bigger Than Ever in First Trailer for Skull Island Jul23

Kong is Bigger Than Ever in First Trailer for Skul...

Legendary and Warner Bros. offered a glimpse of their other expanding cinematic universe, the Godzilla/Kong-verse with the first footage for Jordan Vogt-Roberts Kong: Skull Island! Given the cast involved we’re hoping it’ll be just as good as Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla. The 70s set Kong looks like a monster movie by way of the Vietnam War and the ties to a larger universe and impending fight with Godzilla are already established in the trailer. Kong looks every bit as stylish as Godzilla but offers its own look and scale–one that may be more devastating both physically and psychologically. While Godzilla was...

The Justice League Stands Together in First Group Shot and Footage! Jul23

The Justice League Stands Together in First Group ...

Here it is, folks! Our first look at the film comics fans have been waiting decades for: Justice League! The first notable thing about the footage is that it definitely plays up the humor aspect instead of the action, after all that was a major complaint in regards to Batman v Superman‘s critical reception. But given where that film leaves off, the enhanced optimism of Justice League fits. It’s clear from the way its edited and the music that this is Comic-Con footage meant to gain favor with the naysayers as opposed to an actual trailer, but even with the limited scope of what we see here, it looks like something to get excited...

Wonder Woman Trailer is What We’ve Been Waiting For Jul23

Wonder Woman Trailer is What We’ve Been Wait...

The WB panel at SDCC unveiled the first trailer for Patty Jenkin’s Wonder Woman!   First of all, the trailer looks gorgeous! We all suspected Patty Jenkins had something special in store, but WOW. Each frame in that trailer is bursting with life, and the brightness of Wonder Woman’s costume and lasso offsets the dreary nature of World War I. While some of the actions scenes still look reminiscent of Snyder’s speed-ramping (not a bad thing) Jenkins is clearly delivering her own visual style in this movie. There’s also a dry wit on display, particularly coming from Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor. I’m sold...

This weekend is Star Wars Celebration in London and we’ve already got some exciting tidbits of information. Admittedly, it’s just some behind-the-scenes footage but it reveals the world of Rogue One and some new looks at the variety of characters we’ll be spending time with come December 2016.   Gareth Edwards is directing so naturally the film looks gorgeous and epic in scope. There is constant mention of practical effects and sets because people are still worried about over-whelming CGI. There’s a happy middle-ground and it looks like Star Wars might be the series that delivers on it. Edwards also brings up riding...
