The Girls Are Back in Town in Ocean’s 8 Trailer

Here’s the first trailer for Gary Ross’s Ocean’s 8! This definitely looks like an Ocean’s movie and seems to largely stay on brand with Soderbergh’s trilogy, though it would have been nice to a woman take on the directing duties to further distinguish it from the boy’s club antics of the Clooney led films. Still, Ocean’s 8 has a great cast and looks like it will be a solid addition to the hesit franchise. Hopefully this will form a trilogy of its own and provide a much-needed women led franchise. Ocean’s 8 will be released on June 8th, 2018....

The War Resumes in Teaser for Sicario Sequel Soldado

Here’s the first trailer for the Taylor Sheridan penned Sicario 2: Soldado. Soldado means solider, and while prior commitments prevented Emily Blunt and Denis Villeneuve from returning for the sequel to their 2015 hit, new director Stefano Sollima shows he’s got the stuff to continue the war. The second installment in Sheridan’s planned trilogy sees the cartel war between the U.S. and Mexican border escalate and further morally corrupt returning characters Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) and Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro). Also joining the cast are Matthew Modine and Catherine Keener. While it’s impossible to replicate the talents of Villeneuve...

Peter Jackson Introduces New Epic Saga in Mortal Engines Teaser

Peter Jackson who helped define 21st century epics, with The Lord of the Rings trilogy, has returned with another ambitious project in the form of an adaptation of Phillip Reeve’s award-winning Mortal Engines quartet. This time though, Jackson is screenwriter and producer, while visual effects artist, Christian Rivers, who has teamed up with Jackson through his entire career, takes the director’s helm. Set in a post-apocalyptic world where mobile cities wage war with one another for dwindling resources, Mortal Engines reunites much of the crew from the Middle-Earth saga, and brings together a cast of newcomers and familar faces like Hugo...

Annihilation Aims to Create Something New in Second Trailer

Here’s the second trailer for Alex Garland’s Annihilation. This latest trailer is more action packed and overtly horror-centric than the first, and the novel for that matter, but given Garland’s involvement and some of the behind the scenes reports about producer concerns over the film being too intelligent, it’s likely that Annihilation will be a bit more quiet and subtle than that this trailer suggests. But even if it’s not and ends up being more James Cameron than Ridley Scott, Garland clearly has a fascinating and unique vision for a challenging story to adapt, and a great cast. Annihilation...

Robert Rodriguez Returns with first trailer for Alita: Battle Angel

After almost 20 years of James Cameron trying to make this film happen, here’s the first trailer for Robert Rodriguez’s Alita: Battle Angel, based on the famous manga series. Yeah, it looks weird, but credit to Robert Rodriguez for taking something as commonly explored as A.I. in film and presenting it with a vision that’s entirely his. Hollywood has gotten a lot of deserved criticism for their adaptations of Japanese properties and simply placing them in white America. But Rodriguez looks to do something entirely unique which is situating the story in what appears to be a Latino-American world,...

Life Once Again Finds A Way in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer

Here’s the first trailer for J.A. Bayona’s fifth installment of the Jurassic franchise, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom! Bayona, who impressed us with The Orphanage, The Impossible, and A Monster Calls, has clearly upped the ante on the franchise’s visual style, removing some of the summer blockbuster sheen for a look that’s a little more grounded in the realm of disaster pics. This goes along with the film’s seeming environmental slant, which sees our returning leads from Jurassic World, and Jeff Goldblum’s Ian Malcolm, trying to prevent the second extinction of the dinosaurs, who are under threat from a volcano...

The Entire MCU Assembles in Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

Here’s our first look at Avengers: Infinity War! Now that’s a hell of a trailer, well worth the hype and anticipation! The trailer really captures the epic angle the film is going for, making it feel like a sci-fi/fantasy event rather than a mere superhero movie. The callback to Nick Fury’s speech in The Avengers delivers serious chills and sets the tone for this being the beginning of the endgame for this stage of the MCU. Infinity War seemingly captures the dynamic look of comic books, forgoeing the washed out gray backdrops of Civil War, and instead presenting a...

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski Find A Quiet Place in New Trailer

Here’s the first trailer for the John Krasinski directed horrror film, A Quiet Place. There’s a real challenge to the art of horror movies that can effetively use sound to generate the majority of their scares and tension. If this trailer is any indication, A Quiet Place is up to the challenge, and is going to provide quite the sensory ride. The decision to hide the supernatural element is a good marketing move, and certainly adds an desired element of mystery. I have a feeling that this could end up being the kind of movie so many of us...

The Strangers Take Us Outside in Prey at Night Teaser

Here’s the first teaser for the sequel a decade in the making, The Strangers: Prey at Night! Johannes Roberts’ takes over from the prior entry’s director, Bryan Bertino, and looks to expand the Strangers reign of terror to open spaces. Bertino, who co-write the script, has been discussing sequel plans since the original’s release nearly 10 years ago, and while this sequel looks like a departure from some of the quiet eeriness and clausterphobia of the first one, it certainly has the potential to be equally effective, especially given Roberts’ talent for creating clever jump scares. We’re definitely keeping...

Ryan Reynolds Channels Bob Ross in Deadpool 2 Teaser

The ‘merc with the mouth’ is back in the lastest teaser for Deadpool 2, which briefly offers our first look at actual footage from the film! There’s not much to be said about this, given how little footage from the movie is actually in the teaser, but the marketing team has it down to a science, which attributed to a large portion of the first movie’s success. From what we can see, Deadpool 2 is definitely cruising with a bigger budget and a slicker style, not doubt thanks to the film’s director David Leitch, who took over from Tim...

Spielberg Takes on the White House in The Post Trailer

Here’s the first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s highly-anticipated awards contender, The Post. If Spotlight was any indication, awards voters love films about the press, and The Post could not be coming out at a more insturmental time. In our age of “fake news” and cover-ups coming straight from the White House, we could surely use more of Hanks and Streep’s earnest ability to convey honesty, and Spielberg’s human interest when it comes to the portryal of news media. We’re fully expecting this to be one of the most discussed films of the winter, and we couldn’t doubt Spielberg even...

The Revolution Begins in New Black Panther Trailer

Here’s the latest trailer for Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther!   And here’s the new poster: Yo! So first off, this is looking to be a lot more visually imaginative than even the teaser suggested. The artists involved in this have really put in the work to give the technology of Wakanda its own flair. Additionally, the costume design and detail may be some of the very best Marvel Studios has put forth. While the story details are still tightly underwraps, we do get a much closer look at Michael B. Jordan’s Erik Kilmonger, who looks to T’Challa a run...
