Last week brought the tiniest of updates regarding the Star Wars spin-off film that will focus on Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo. Not only did we learn the name of the character that Woody Harrelson will be playing (which didn’t really tell us anything), but Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed some vague details about what we’ll see unfold in the movie. But today, the Han Solo spin-off also gained a new cast member.
Ian Kenny is probably best known for playing the bully in last year’s musical gem Sing Street, but pretty soon he’ll be even better known by millions around the world having just been made part of the Han Solo spin-off cast. Read More »

Animals is one of the strangest shows to hit the small screen in the past few years. It imagines what the creatures in and around New York City would do if they had recognizable human problems – insecurity, parenting issues, dealing with bullying, marital struggles, experimenting with drugs…the works. The show was also notable for its all-star cast, which included some of the best comedic actors in the industry.
HBO renewed it for a second season a few months ago, and now they’re back with a new trailer that promises total anarchy in the weeks to come. Read More »
Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we talk about a little known topic called abortion, compare notes about what a totalitarian state looks like abroad while looking at ourselves, wonder aloud who did kill JonBenet Ramsey, revel in the playfulness of a seriously gifted artist and get more Stormare in my life.

Following a barrage of new posters and trailer teasers, the new Justice League trailer is finally here.
Zack Snyder is back as director to bring DC Comics’ biggest superheroes together as a team for the first time on the big screen. Though Superman (Henry Cavill) is still in the ground, we know at some point he’ll be back to join the rest of the superhero squad. In the meantime, Batman (Ben Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) are left to face threats to the world themselves, and according to Bruce Wayne’s Knightmare vision from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, eventually that will include Superman himself.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Watch the new Justice League trailer after the jump. Read More »

There’s a scene in the new Power Rangers movie in which Jason, the Red Ranger (Dacre Montgomery), tells one of his fellow Rangers that what matters isn’t the past, but what one works to make the future. It’s a perfectly admirable, earnest sort of sentiment — it’s just one that feels a little off, too, given that the past he’s referring to involves semi-revenge porn.
