Sense8 season 2 premiere date

Netflix comes bearing gifts. Whether they’re wanted or unwanted gifts, though, will depend on your tolerance for Lana and Lilly Wachowski and J. Michael Straczynski‘s brand of metaphysical sci-fi insanity. The streaming service has officially announced that a Sense8 Christmas special will drop later this month, just as we suspected. But that’s not all. They’ve also confirmed a Sense8 season 2 premiere date for 2017, and shared a batch of first-look photos from the new run of episodes.  Read More »

‘How To Train Your Dragon 3’ Pushed Back to 2019

How To Train Your Dragon 3 release date

Toothless and Hiccup’s next flight will take a little extra time to get off the ground. Universal has pushed back How to Train Your Dragon 3 one year, from 2018 to 2019 — just in time to mark the fifth anniversary of How to Train Your Dragon 2. Meanwhile, the studio has also set a date for Everest, an animated Yeti adventure from Oriental DreamWorks. Get the How to Train Your Dragon 3 release date details and more below.  Read More »

Alan Tudyk Frozen 2, Wreck-It Ralph 2, Guardians of the Galaxy

When Disney decides it likes someone, it has a tendency to work with them again and again. And right now, there are few stars they seem to like more than Alan Tudyk. Not only has he appeared in every Disney Animation feature since Wreck-It Ralph — up to and including this fall’s Moana — he has a mo-cap role in this month’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

That won’t be the end of his relationship with the Mouse House, either. The actor confirmed he’ll be back for Frozen 2 and Wreck-It Ralph 2, both of which are currently in development at the studio. But there’s still one Disney property he still hasn’t gotten in on, and that’s Marvel — apparently to his regret, since he’s confessed a desire to join James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy films. Find out what Gunn had to say in response, below.  Read More »

The Mummy featurette

Tom Cruise brings a lot of respectability to The Mummy. More than one would maybe expect from the first entry in the potential Universal Monster Movie Universe, partly because it’s following up the disastrous Van HelsingThe Wolfman, and, a movie erased from the new world of monsters, Dracula Untold. Universal has struggled to bring their iconic monsters back to the big screen in the past, but Cruise’s involvement in this universe, especially after seeing him in the solid trailer, inspires some confidence — and maybe because you know you’re usually in for a fun time with most movies starring Tom Cruise.

Below, watch The Mummy featurette, which features footage not shown in the trailer.

Moana We Know the Way Clip

Chances are you’ve already seen Moana, and if you’ve already seen Moana, chances are you’ve got the songs stuck in your head. Maybe you’ve tried to get your fix by streaming the soundtrack on Spotify or downloading it on iTunes. But it’s just not the same without the bright, expressive visuals by Disney Animation, is it?

Happily, the Mouse House is sympathetic to our plight. The studio previously shared a clip showcasing Dwayne Johnson‘s big musical number “You’re Welcome,” and today they’ve unveiled another clip featuring “We Know the Way.” (Yes, Hamilton fans, that’s the one where you can hear Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s vocals.) Watch the Moana “We Know the Way” clip below. Read More »

Westworld

I’m still trying to recover from that fantastic Westworld season one finale. A lot of people watching the series are likely not paying attention to the incredible Westworld website that HBO has constructed that takes you inside the world of the show. An update occurred after the finale that gives us a bunch of hints at the future of the show, and may finally reveal what year this story takes place in. Hit the jump to dive in.

Dan Stevens in Legion trailer

Stories about folks with superpowers have become so ubiquitous that it’s easy to forget how bonkers the entire concept is. If you pause to think about it, it’d be completely bizarre for a boy in Queens to gain spider senses. It’d be insane for an actual, living alien baby to crash down in Kansas. And so on, and so forth. So it’s nice to see Legion is injecting some much-needed weirdness back into the genre.

A spinoff of Fox’s X-Men franchise, the FX drama centers on a young man named David Haller (Dan Stevens), who’s spent much of his life going in and out of psychiatric hospitals to treat what he believes is schizophrenia. But something happens, and he starts to wonder if the voices he’s been hearing in his head might be real after all. Comics fans will know that in the books, David is the son of Professor X and that David is himself a mutant with very interesting powers. But we’ll all have to wait and see how things pan out for the small-screen version of the character. Watch the Legion trailer below.

Gareth Edwards Rogue One poster

Working on a Star Wars movie would be a dream come true for most filmmakers, so when Gareth Edwards had the chance to helm Rogue One he made the most of it. We’ve already shared our chat with Edwards, where he told us about all the big ways he tried to make Rogue One his own, but here we’re talking about the little things he did to get the full experience. Like leaving his mark on Industrial Light & Magic through a bunch of jokey “notes” on the Rogue One poster, and smuggling out a little memento for himself of his time on set.  Read More »
