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 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...

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...

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...
