Faster Than a Speeding #2, the ‘Captain Underpants’ Trailer Is Here

There’s no arguing that superheroes currently own the cineplex, but in a slight change of pace, one of this upcoming summer’s cape-clad defenders won’t hail from the pages of Marvel or DC. Kids (and nostalgia fetishists in their mid-to-late twenties) will get a colorful crimefighter of a different stripe with Captain Underpants, the computer-animated adaptation of Dav Pilkey’s long-running line of sophomoric chapter books about a delusional elementary school principal’s adventures in doo-doo derring-do. The first trailer hit the internet today, and if you were wondering if it contains the same Steve Aoki club banger as the War Dogs trailer, then have I got some good news for you!

The New ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Clip Is That Water Fight We’ve All Been Waiting For

The whitewashing controversy surrounding Ghost in the Shell may keep it from becoming 2017’s big box office hit, despite how faithfully the filmmakers have recreated some of the most visually-arresting scenes from the 1995 original. It’s a bummer that Motoko Kusanagi is now Mara Killian because the movie looks absolutely gorgeous, as evidenced in this new clip, which takes its cues directly from an iconic scene in the original.

‘Churchill’ Trailer: Our First Look at One of the Winston Churchill Movies Coming Out This Year

Your high school world history teacher’s favorite impression is about to star in not one, but two movies coming out in 2017. The life and legacy of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill is fascinating territory, and it’s no wonder that both Lionsgate and Universal have hopped on the opportunity. The latest trailer, for Lionsgate’s film starring Brain Cox as “our greatest Briton,” sees the harrowing weeks before D-Day, when American and British forces stormed the beaches of France in an attempt to win the war that had a 50/50 chance of actually working out.

Mark Hamill Shares Another Photo From the First ‘Star Wars’ Shoot that Lucasfilm Kept Hidden for Years

Mark Hamill, like many stars who enjoy sharing glimpses of the days before they finally made it big, enjoys posting the occasional photo or two from the sets of Star Wars. Just a few days ago, he shared what might very well be the first ever photo taken of Luke Skywalker in costume out in the middle of the Tunisian desert. Today, another early photo of himself as the young Jedi was unearthed, and Hamill pointed out that Lucasfilm was not keen on letting the public see it for years.

15 Lines We Never Want to Hear in a Movie Again

Last week, I got so sick of hearing a particular line of dialogue — “This isn’t a movie! This is real life!” — that I wrote a piece about it. While finishing it, I teased the article on Twitter by sharing the headline and inviting my followers to guess what line had set me off. I got well over 100 responses, but just one correct answer. But so many of the other replies were also outstanding examples of dumb clichés I decided to collect the best of the best (slash worst of the worst) in their own list.

It might be a tale as old as time, but audiences have proven there’s still a few petals left on that old flower.
