Veep Season 6 teaser

Veep is currently facing a very strange challenge that the show couldn’t possibly have seen coming when Armando Iannucci first created it several years ago: namely, the fact that real-life politics has far surpassed any twisted insanity that a bunch of TV writers could ever come up with. Since the inauguration, each day has yielded enough blunders to account for a season’s worth of storylines on Veep, and our actual politicians are starting to make Jonah Ryan look smart and decent. And none of this is really funny — it’s actually kind of terrifying.

So will Veep season 6 try and reckon with our new (and horrible) political reality? Will it accidentally comment on recent events? (You know, the way every movie seems to be “about Trump” now despite the fact that all of them were conceived and shot well before the 2016 election.) Or will it blithely continue on, as oblivious to the real world as its characters are? We’ll find out when Veep returns in a couple of months, but in the meantime here’s a trailer to remind you of where we left off with Selina Meyer. Watch the first Veep season 6 teaser below.

Daisy Ridley as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Daisy Ridley may have been new to movie stardom circa Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but by now she’s an old pro at dodging questions. Watch as shrugs that she doesn’t think Rey’s parentage is really “so important,” or coolly deflects further inquiries with “curiosity is a wonderful thing.” Unfortunately for her, though, fans and journalists aren’t the only ones she has to watch out for.

For the past several weeks, Josh Gad — Ridley’s co-star in the Murder on the Orient Express remake — has been trying his damnedest to get some Star Wars: The Last Jedi answers from her, even enlisting the help of Judi Dench. So far, Ridley’s resisted. But can she continue to stand firm against all of Gad’s famous friends? Find out below.  Read More »

King Arthur Legend of the Sword trailer

If you keep forgetting that King Arthur: Legend of the Sword hasn’t actually come out yet, you’re not alone. Indeed, if you keep forgetting it exists at all, you’re probably not alone there either. After all, it’s been nearly two years since Guy Ritchie entered production on his medieval fantasy epic, which was originally supposed to open in summer 2016. Even Warner Bros. barely seems to be paying this film any mind — they haven’t released a new trailer for its would-be franchise-starter since Comic-Con.

But with about three months to go until release, the studio is finally getting around to marketing it for real. Today, we’ve got the new King Arthur: Legend of the Sword trailer, starring Charlie Hunnam as the legendary leader and the Young Pope Jude Law as the villainous Vortigern. Eric BanaAstrid Bergès-FrisbeyDjimon HounsouAidan Gillen, and Eric Bana also star.  Read More »

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Justice League

David Thewlis was officially announced as part of the Wonder Woman cast back in November, but since then we’ve heard barely a peep about what he’ll actually be doing in the movie. He hasn’t even appeared in any of the promotional material yet — watching the trailers and TV spots, you’d probably have no idea he was in the movie at all. But today, we’ve finally got a bit more insight into his role in the film. It turns out the former Order of the Phoenix hero has gone full villain.  Read More »

Logan - X-23

Hugh Jackman‘s Logan is the undisputed star of Logan (you know, as indicated by the title), but its resident scene-stealer is definitely Laura, a.k.a. X-23. As played by 11-year-old Dafne Keen, she’s a force of nature who’s more than capable of holding her own against veteran X-Men like Wolverine and Professor X. I’ve got a strong feeling she’ll emerge as a new fan favorite as more and more people get to see Logan.

In fact, she’s definitely got one supporter on her side already: Logan director James Mangold, who says he’d liked to be “involved” with a potential X-23 spinoff.  Read More »

Shazam

DC’s Shazam has been in development for several years now, but it hasn’t shown any serious forward momentum since it cast Dwayne Johnson as Black Adam back in 2014. With that 2019 release date slowly creeping up, though, Warner Bros. is finally ready to take its next big leap forward. The studio has reportedly tapped director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) to direct.

John Wick Chapter 3 setting

John Wick: Chapter 2 has only been in theaters for a few days, but fans (like us) are already clamoring for a sequel, and the filmmakers seem more than happy to serve one up. Though they haven’t gotten the greenlight just yet for John Wick 3, star Keanu Reeves, director Chad Stahelski, and screenwriter Derek Kolstad spent a good portion of their Chapter 2 press tour talking up their hopes and plans for Chapter 3, and we’ve rounded up everything we know about the movie right here.

One big question that remains unanswered, though, is where the story will take place. The first John Wick was set in New York, and the second hopped across the pond to Rome. So where might Wick head next? In a recent interview, Stahelski dropped some hints.  Read More »

Logan Lucky logo

Steven Soderbergh is back. Well, kind of. He never really went away to begin with, when you consider the fact that he spent his “retirement” directing a TV movie and making a TV show and producing other shows and films and serving as cinematographer on a sequel to one of his own movies.

But he’s finally returning to the movies, as a director, for real, with Logan Lucky, starring Daniel CraigChanning TatumAdam Driver, and many, many more. And new Soderbergh movie would be great news no matter what the context, so let’s go ahead and celebrate, shall we? Bleecker Street has announced it’s picking up Soderbergh’s NASCAR heist movie for release this summer, and they’ve shared the very first photo to mark the occasion. Get your Logan Lucky first look below.  Read More »

Sam Raimi

Sam Raimi has never been afraid to venture into weird territory, whether it’s a medieval England overrun by Deadites in Army of Darkness or the Land of Oz in Oz: The Great and Powerful. But for his next project, he’ll go exploring a little closer to home. Raimi has been set to direct a movie about the Bermuda Triangle, the spot in the Atlantic Ocean where, according to legend, planes and ships have inexplicably vanished. Skydance Productions is behind the project.  Read More »
