‘Once Upon a Time in Venice’ Trailer: Bruce Willis Wants His Dog Back
Man-hunts-down-other-men-who-did-something-to-his-dog seems like it’s become an action movie subgenre of its own ever since John Wick came out, and now Bruce Willis is trying out the trope, playing a private eye who goes on a rampage after his dog gets stolen by drug dealers.
Free Comic Book Day to Feature Exclusive Comic Previewing Luc Besson’s ‘Valerian’
Free Comic Book Day is a fun time of the year for anyone even remotely interested in comics. Companies and stores pick out some select stories that customers can get for free, and some artists and writers even make comics especially for Free Comic Book Day. Luc Besson and the folks behind Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets have put together a sneak peek of their new movie in the form of a preview comic that introduces us to the characters of Valerian and Laureline and details a few of their adventures.
Luke Skywalker’s Rumored Bling in ‘The Last Jedi’ Could Be Very Important
When we last saw Luke Skywalker, he had just flipped the gray hood of his grayer robes off of his head with a flourish to reveal his extremely gray wise man beard and to fix Rey with his piercing gray eyes. Word on the street is he’ll definitely have more lines in The Last Jedi, and probably at least one more outfit. A new rumor also suggests he has some new jewelry that might have something to do with his past and Darth Vader. [Be advised: this gets into some kindaaa spoilery territory, so if you want to go into The Last Jedi blind, run away!]
‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Clip: Quill Treats Gamora to Some More of That Pelvic Sorcery
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ad campaign is doing a great job at bombarding us all with content so that none of us can forget that the movie comes out in a little less than two weeks. The latest look at the movie features a quiet, somewhat sweet moment between Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana), as he tries yet again to teach her how to love music just as much as he does.
Amazon Prime Instant Video and TV Releases for May Announced
Amazon released their list of what to look forward to streaming on their instant video service next month, and May has some absolute winners. Not only did the site nab Oscar nominee Manchester by the Sea, they’ll also have available to stream last year’s Best Picture winner Moonlight, their new Original Series Dino Dana and I Love Dick, and a ton of classic James Bond movies.
All of Your Favs Are Back in the International ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’ Trailer
A certain branch of criticism against the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie back when it came out in 2011 focused on the fact that this was the first one with barely a trace of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, two characters we’d all grown to love through a trilogy of movies, and, arguably, who are the actual heart and soul of the series. Without them, On Stranger Tides felt adrift, unable to find an emotional focus despite introducing a new generation of generically attractive leads. The good news for those of us who have stuck with the series this far is, thanks to the new international trailer, we know Elizabeth is coming back too. Along with a few more of Captain Jack’s “friends.”
‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Spot: Nebula’s on the Team, but She’s Not a Hero Yet
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 adds a few intriguing wrinkles into everything we thought we knew about the Universe’s most dysfunctional heroes. For one thing, we’re finally going to meet Peter Quill’s dad Ego the Living Planet who, until now, has been kept a mystery (unless you’ve read the comics). But there’s another interesting development in place: Nebula, Gamora’s blue-headed adopted sister and fellow daughter of Thanos, seems to have joined up with the Guardians. And, at first, it doesn’t go so well.
‘Aquaman’ Screenwriter Returning to the Deeps for ‘The Creature From the Black Lagoon’
The Universal monster cinematic universe (UMCU) is about to launch with Tom Cruise’s The Mummy this summer, and the studio is already planning their next installment. Seemingly because he took to Aquaman like a fish to water, screenwriter Will Beall is diving into The Creature from the Black Lagoon next.
We Might See Darth Vader’s Evil Villain Castle in Another ‘Star Wars’ Movie
Rogue One audiences were somewhat surprised at the theater when the movie returned us to planet Mustafar for one scene between Sith Lord Darth Vader and Director Orson Krennic. Vader floats inside his bacta tank, soaking up nutrients while contemplating the Rebels’ demise from the security of his Barad-dûr-like fortress of evil. It’s a fun image, and one that we might see again. But probably minus Vader.
Beep Beep, Richie: ‘It’ Trailer Breaks Record for Most Views in a Single Day
For more than three months, The Fate of the Furious held the top spot of the movie trailer X-Games, accruing 139 million views in 24 hours, promptly dethroning Beauty and the Beast. But now a new player has entered the game, and he comes bearing a red balloon and a mouthful of shiny, sharp teeth. Beep beep, Vinnie.
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.
