Warner Bros. opens Mad Max: Fury Road in just six weeks, and the studio is experimenting with reminding us all that the movie looks totally insane, as if there was any chance we’d forget it after that first footage. So here are a few very short Mad Max: Fury Road teasers / TV spots. Mostly, they re-contextualize footage we’ve already seen, though eagle-eyed viewers will notice a handful of new shots. We’re excited to see more from the film, but at this point we’re ready for the whole thing. 2014 feels like it is already racing by like a post-apocalyptic convoy but still, May can’t get here fast enough.

Over the weekend, you might have seen some reports that Queen‘s manager said that Sacha Baron Cohen had returned to the Freddie Mercury biopic, and that he would not only star in the film, but that he would write, direct, and produce the movie. This was a huge surprise, since Brian May and the other surviving members of Queen had nixed the Cohen-starring version of the film quite a while ago.
And that’s the way it remains. Queen’s manager did say something about Sacha Baron Cohen returning to the film, but his statement was a joke — a joke that became news thanks to an incomplete transcription. Read More »
One of AMC’s fall 2015 shows is Into the Badlands, a series starring Daniel Wu in a story that loosely adapts the ages-old Chinese story Journey to the West. We don’t know much about the show other than what little AMC has revealed so far, but during the finale of The Walking Dead the network debuted the first teaser for the show, and it raises far more questions than it answers. Check out the first Into the Badlands teaser below. Read More »
The latest Jurassic World TV spot features a bit of new stuff, and a pretty dire observation from the character played by Chris Pratt. He notices that the genetically modified new dinosaur attraction at the park seems to be killing other dinos for sport — and that’s probably just a hint of the mayhem to come.

Starz has a new two-season, 20-episode show called Blunt Talk debuting this summer, with Patrick Stewart starring as a British TV newsman working in America who, well, isn’t the best when it comes to making good decisions. The first Blunt Talk teaser shows off some of his behavior. Because it’s fun to see Stewart play outside of his now well-established zone as a reasonable leader, you’ll probably want to see a lot more. Read More »
Movement on Ruairi Robinson‘s proposed sci-fi film The Leviathan happened fast. The director posted a proof of concept trailer just days ago, which led to Neill Blomkamp and Simon Kinberg joining the project as producers.

With his fondness for plaid and flannel, George Lucas projects a pretty laid-back image, but he’s not exactly known for his outrageous sense of humor. If we were going to cast a Daily Show spot making fun of Fox News, Lucas wouldn’t be among the first people chosen for the gig. Maybe that’s why his appearance on exactly such a sketch is pretty funny. That he’s having fun with his own creation (Star Wars, of course, along with American Graffiti) is part of the fun. Watch the George Lucas Daily Show segment below. Read More »
