Deadpool 2 Cable David Harbour

It looks like the team behind Deadpool 2 have been just as obsessed with Stranger Things as the rest of us. The superhero sequel is reportedly eyeing star David Harbour to play Cable. Although the time-traveling mutant has yet to appear on the big screen, he has an extensive history with Deadpool in the comics.  Read More »

Aquaman in Justice League

The first Justice League trailer showed Aquaman strutting around on land, tussling with Batman and trying his best to stay hydrated. But he really belongs to the sea, and now we’ve got our first halfway decent look at the underwater kingdom he calls home. Director Zack Snyder has shared a brief snippet of footage showing Jason Momoa swimming around underwater, offering a much better idea of what he’ll look like in action. Plus, Gal Gadot has posted a new photo of Wonder Woman from the set.  Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Ego

The latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer offered our first look at Kurt Russell‘s Ego the Living Planet in real, live, flesh-and-blood form. As we’ve known since Comic-Con last year, Ego is the biological dad that Peter has been searching for. But now that the mystery of Star-Lord’s parentage has been solved, we’re left with still more questions about the guy. Like: why is he here? What does he want with Peter? For that matter, do we know Ego is Peter’s dad? All we have to go on right now is his word, and we don’t know how trustworthy this guy is.

While combing through the new promo, we started to form some ideas about the role Ego could play in the movie, based on the footage we’ve seen so far, the interviews conducted with the cast and crew, and the character’s comic book history. Learn more about him below.  Read More »

CHIPS red-band trailer

Blame 21 Jump Street: it seems like every old show deemed too hokey to get resurrected faithfully is getting an action-comedy reboot. Like CHIPSDax Shepard and Michael Peña‘s riff on the 1970s series. You can tell it’s not your father’s CHiPs because the title is spelled a little differently — that I and that S are capital letters now. Also, this new version has way more jokes about rim jobs.

Watch the CHIPS red-band trailer below. Read More »

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer

Captain Jack is back. Disney has just unveiled the first full Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer — and unlike the teaser trailer or the Super Bowl spot, which barely showed Johnny Depp at all, there’s plenty of him in this one. There’s even a younger version of Jack floating around, in case you don’t like him in his present state.

This time, he’s being pursued by Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), a royally pissed-off ghost who’s out to kill every pirate in the sea. But especially Jack, whom he blames for a tragedy in his past. Fortunately for Jack, he’s got some help in the form of two new sidekicks played by Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario . Watch the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer below.  Read More »

inhumans

If you think we’ve got a lot of superhero shows now, just wait — there are still more coming down the pipeline, hoping to join all the ones we already have. Today, two of the more prominent ones took big steps forward. ABC’s Inhumans has just found its leading lady in Graceland alum Serinda Swan, while Fox’s untitled X-Men spinoff has located another mutant in The Goldbergs‘ Natalie Alyn LindRead More »

Beauty and the Beast gay character

The marketing for Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast has mostly revolved around its similarities to the 1991 animated classic. The trailers are set to familiar tunes and the promo images are loving recreations of famous scenes. But throughout the campaign, the cast and crew have insisted that they’re giving the story some modern upgrades. And one of those, apparently, is a “gay subplot” for Gaston’s sidekick, LeFou (played by Josh Gad).  Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 trailer breakdown

Last night, Marvel Studios premiered the new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And because we are nothing if not predictable, you know what that means: it’s time to comb through this footage frame by frame and figure out what it tells us about the new movie. (The fact that it doubles as an excuse to coo at all the new shots of Baby Groot is just the icing on the cake.) So watch the trailer here if you haven’t already, and then join us below to break this thing down.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

War Machine trailer starring Brad Pitt

One of the interesting things about Netflix’s massive original programming slate is that unlike a lot of traditional distributors, they don’t really have a type. They’ll release gritty superhero dramas and fluffy kiddie fare, sober documentaries and goofy standup specials, Adam Sandler comedies and arthouse oddities. They’ve got a little something for everyone, which makes perfect sense since “everyone” is their target customer.

So while we’re not super into, say, Sandy Wexler, we’re more than happy to tolerate its existence if it means we also get movies like War Machine. Directed by David Michôd (of Animal Kingdom fame), the pitch-black satire stars Brad Pitt as real-life U.S. general Stanley McChrystal. You may remember his dramatic fall from grace a few years ago after a Rolling Stone exposé. Tilda Swinton and Ben Kingsley also star. Check out the War Machine trailer below.  Read More »
