Things are coming to a head in Panem as the Capitol seeks to squash any possible rebellion, and Katniss is pushed into a position of leadership as the President’s fist comes down on her people. And so we have this so-called Final Trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, in which no one looks like they’re likely to escape these events without a whole lot of pain. And as bad as it will be for them, it’s likely to be great for us, because this footage looks great. Check out the latest Mockingjay Part 1 trailer below. Read More »

The two covers of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly feature our first official look at four of the stars of Terminator: Genisys. and one skeletal robot. “How to Save a Billion Dollar Franchise” blares the the copy in text only slightly smaller than the magazine’s title and the movie’s name. Well, here’s a hint on “saving a franchise”: don’t debut the characters in photos that look like they were taken at a mall during a festival for cosplayers on a budget. See the two covers below.

Teen Wolf has guaranteed company in the film-to-TV crowd on MTV. The cable company has given a series order to Scream, the show based on Wes Craven’s defining horror series. We’ve heard, however, that the show at this point won’t feature Ghostface, the recognizable masked killer who made his on-screen debut in the original 1996 film. (The Ghostface mask was actually an existing creation, owned by the company FunWorld.) But that doesn’t mean there won’t be another killer on the loose. After all, there’s no Scream without a killer.

Written and directed by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, What We Do in the Shadows is a funny mock documentary that exposes the nighttime world of New Zealand’s vampire underworld. Though in fact, the scene is more like a dysfunctional flat than an “underworld,” even though the flatmates are all, technically, monsters. As monsters go, some of them seem pretty OK. Now, just a few weeks before the film opens in the UK, we’ve got the first six minute of the comedy for your enjoyment. Watch the What We Do in the Shadows opening below.

One of the big announcements in Marvel’s press event this morning was the reveal that the third Captain America film is Captain America: Civil War. That’s based on a comic book storyline in which Iron Man and Captain America are at odds over the idea of government oversight and hero registration. So how does Marvel do a Civil War storyline on screen when the company doesn’t have a few key elements of the comic incarnation — namely Spider-Man and secret identities? Asked about the story, Kevin Feige explained how the Marvel Civil War movie will work. Read More »
Now there is a Totoro worm. Maybe you have a dog or a cat named Totoro but did you find and name a species of worm after Hayao Miyazaki’s fan-favorite character? I didn’t think so. Researchers have detailed the discovery and naming of a new species of velvet worm, found in Vietnam. Thanks to some specific physical characteristics, the creature is named after Totoro. Read More »
We’re thinking about sci-fi as all the reviews hit for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar; meanwhile here’s the trailer for an independent film that also deals with mankind looking to the stars when situations go bad on Earth. In The Last Scout the situation on Earth is far more dire, leading a ship that contains essentially the remnants of humanity to explore space in search of a new home. It’s a little bit Battlestar Galactica, and a little bit drawn from a few other shows and films you like. But that might be alright. Check out The Last Scout trailer after the break. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a stylish and moody feature debut from very promising writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour. In this film, Amirpour combines a hearty set of influences — Iranian culture, Westerns, rock and roll films, and horror icons — to create a unique take on the vampire genre. It’s a sultry and compelling film, with all the energy of the late ’80s and early ’90s independent scene but a personality that isn’t quite like any of the influences it draws from. I can’t wait to see what Amirpour does next; in the meantime I’m ready to see this one again. Check out the new A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night trailer below.
