Oscar Isaac in Inside Llewyn Davis

As excited as we are to see Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron in next month’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens — and as Apocalypse in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse — it’s a relief to hear he isn’t abandoning the kind of non-franchise dramas he built his reputation on in the first place. Isaac’s next new gig looks likely to be A Foreigner, from Me and Earl and the Dying Girl helmer Alfonso Gomez-RejonRead More »

Fifty Shades of Black trailer

Based on the box office numbers, just about every grown-up in the world celebrated Valentine’s Day this year by going to see Fifty Shades of Grey. Naturally, Lionsgate quickly moved to lock down Valentine’s Day 2017 and 2018 as well, for Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. But what’s a Fifty Shades fan to do for Valentine’s Day 2016?

Well, there are a couple of options. You could watch Dakota Johnson’s vanilla romcom How to Be Single, the trailer for which debuted yesterday. Or, if you’ve got more, um, unconventional desires, you could check out Marlon WayansFifty Shades of Grey parody, Fifty Shades of Black. Watch the trailer after the jump. Read More »

Central Intelligence header

Dwayne Johnson may have the physique of an action hero, but underneath all those bulging muscles there’s a comedy star just waiting to break free. Or at least that’s what Dodgeball director Rawson Marshall Thurber is banking on in his new movie. Central Intelligence pairs Johnson with comedy A-lister Kevin Hart — and then has Johnson be the funny one, and Hart act as the straight man. Talk about a plot twist. Check out the first Central Intelligence images after the jump.

A Monster Calls teaser trailer

Liam Neeson can be pretty damn intimidating when he wants to be (see: his entire post-Taken career), so it’s a little ironic that when he finally gets the chance to play a straight-up monster, he… actually doesn’t seem scary at all. The monster of J.A. Bayona‘s A Monster Calls seems plenty big and creepy, sure. But he seems to be a gentler sort, more interested in rescuing lost little boys and making moviegoers cry, than he does unleashing terror upon screaming victims.

Based on the novel by Patrick Ness (who also penned the screenplay), A Monster Calls stars Lewis MacDougall as a young boy who escapes his unhappy reality by slipping into a dark fantasy world. Felicity Jones and Toby Kebbell play his parents. Watch the A Monster Calls teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »

Bad Robot God Particle

Earlier this year, screenwriter Doug Jung joined Simon Pegg aboard the Enterprise to finally get that Star Trek Beyond script into shooting shape. Though it’ll be some time before we see how their efforts turned out, Paramount and J.J. Abrams‘ Bad Robot, at least, seem pleased with the results so far. They’ve re-teaming with Jung to get the ball rolling on another of their projects, the low-budget sci-fi God ParticleRead More »

Star Wars The Force Awakens Finn

As excited as we are to see Han, Chewie, and Leia (and presumably Luke, whenever we get around to seeing him) back for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re also dying to spend some quality time with the new heroes of the franchise. Like Finn, the young stormtrooper played by John Boyega. His was the very first face we saw in the very first teaser trailer for the movie, but a year later, there’s a whole lot we still don’t know about him.

So it’s a pleasure to get to know him a tiny bit better today, as a new TV spot shines a light on this brand-new badass. Don’t worry — your other faves, like BB-8, make appearances too. Watch the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Finn spot after the jump. Read More »

‘Agent Carter’ Season 2 Teaser: Peggy Heads West

Agent Carter

After spending much of Agent Carter Season 1 adjusting to life after World War II — and after Steve Rogers — Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) is off to a fresh start in the first teaser for Season 2. The next run of episodes sends her across the country to glamorous Hollywood, where she’ll tangle with new foes and, by the looks of it, a new love. But she’s got some old friends in tow as well, including (much to his chagrin) Edwin Jarvis, played by James D’Arcy. Watch the first Agent Carter Season 2 teaser after the jump. Read More »
