‘A Dark Song’ Trailer: Black Magic is Not a Game

a dark song trailer

One of the most pleasant surprises to come out of last year’s Fantastic Fest was Liam Gavin’s A Dark Song, a stripped-down, no-nonsense horror movie about the perils of the occult. It was one of the most intriguing, unique, and creepy movies I saw in 2016…and soon, it will be one of the most intriguing, unique, and creepy movies you’ll see in 2017. You can watch the first trailer below.

fate of the furious early buzz

UPDATE: We have added a new video review courtesy from our own Peter Sciretta and Collider’s Steven Weintraub.

While CinemaCon is technically the place where movie studios entice theater owners and other industry professionals with trailers and footage from their upcoming movies, sometimes they go all-in. Last night, Disney screened Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales nearly two months early. And today, Universal surprised attendees with a screening of The Fate of the Furious, offering the assembled crowd a first look at the eighth film in the long-lived (and somehow, still good) Fast and Furious series.

Our own Peter Sciretta was in attendance, so you can find his reaction as well as responses from other critics below.

silicon valley season 4 trailer

A few weeks ago, I called HBO’s Veep one of the funniest shows on television. The only reason I couldn’t call it the funniest show on television is because Silicon Valley, its partner in comedy on Sunday nights, is a thing that exists. Mike Judge and Alec Berg’s series about programmers and corporations and the various messy places they intersect was very funny in its first episodes, but it has only grown more confident (and bleaker) with each passing season.

And since the new Silicon Valley season 4 trailer reveals the show at what appears to be its bleakest, we can probably expect some pretty big laughs.

spider-man homecoming trailer breakdown

A new Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer arrived yesterday, so let’s do the sensible thing and go through the trailer and rank every single frame from best to worst. What? Too much. In that case, let’s just do another trailer breakdown, where we pick apart the footage and see what we can find.

Naturally, we may uncover some accidental spoilers, so tread cautiously.

it trailer

Stephen King‘s It is probably the best horror novel ever written and the original television miniseries traumatized a generation. So the new film adaptation from Mama director Andrés Muschietti has some pretty big (clown-sized?) shoes to fill. Now that the first trailer for this long-awaited adaptation has arrived, we can start to adjust our expectations accordingly.

valerian and the city of a thousand planets trailer

Even when I don’t love Luc Besson‘s movies, I love that Luc Besson is making movies. I especially love that he’s getting to make another colorful, over-the-top science fiction action movie, his first of this size and scope since The Fifth ElementValerian and the City of the Thousand Planets looks absolutely nutty in the best possible ways, with the city of Alpha looking like an ideal playground for Besson to scratch every single sci-fi itch he has left. Watch the new trailer below.

Wreck-It Ralph 2

The Disney panel at CinemaCon 2017 kicked off with a little bit of Wreck-It Ralph 2 news. Or rather, it kicked off with the actual title of the second Wreck-It Ralph movie, which is still set to hit theaters in 2018.

AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL TRUTH TO POWER

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is bound to the be the 2017 movie that many audiences willfully choose to ignore. The same thing happened with 2006’s Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth – too many people simply don’t want to acknowledge or accept responsibility for certain catastrophes that are just over the horizon. We live in unnerving times and here’s a movie that promises worse times ahead.

The first trailer for the film, which premiered to sobering responses at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, has arrived.

Venom

If you have no idea what to make of Sony’s decision to make a solo Venom movie…welcome to the club. However, it’s not our job to figure out what this movie is going to be. That duty may very well fall to Adi Shankar, the always-busy producer known for both his big screen outings and his online “bootleg” shorts that take on franchises and characters he does not own.

According to one report, Shankar is on the studio’s short list of potential Venom directors, which is…well, weirdly appropriate in its own little way.
