Power Rangers Teaser Poster

Even though we got quite a lengthy teaser trailer for the latest big screen iteration of Power Rangers, we still haven’t seen the titular teenage superheroes in action on screen yet. So far only still images of the Power Rangers in their signature suits have been provided online, and we’ve seen even less of their massive robot companions known as Zords, but now we get a somewhat better glimpse at the latter.

A new Power Rangers poster teases the arrival of the Zords, however, they manage to show even less than the previous teaser posters revealed with each of the Rangers standing on their own vehicles. In addition, we’ve got a new photo of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa. Read More »

Jackie trailer

The vast majority of 2016 movies are in our rearview mirror at this point, but there are still a few gems to look forward to before the year’s out. Among them is Jackie, a biopic of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in the difficult days following her husband’s death. The film’s already earned high praise on the festival circuit, particularly for director Pablo Larraín‘s unsentimental approach to his subject and for Natalie Portman‘s insightful lead performance, and in just a few weeks it’ll be in theaters for the rest of us to enjoy. Watch the new Jackie trailer below.  Read More »

marc webb's gifted trailer starring chris evans

Before he made the critically slammed The Amazing Spider-Man films, director Marc Webb was a darling of the indie film world. A music video and commercial director who broke onto the movie scene with the fantastic 500 Days of Summer. He returned to the more moderately-budgeted world of dramatic films (read: less studio and producer meddling) and reuniting with Fox Searchlight for his next film Gifted.

Chris Evans (Captain America) stars as a single father raising a child prodigy played by Mckenna Grace (Independence Day: Resurgence, Designated Survivor) and the struggle for him to retain custody. The movie has an excellent cast which also includes Jenny Slate, Octavia Spencer, and Lindsay Duncan. Watch the Gifted trailer now embedded below.

You’re thrilled to see two people you care about commit to one another, while surrounded by the warm embrace of their friends and family.

That’s the situation Anna Kendrick finds herself in in Table 19, the new comedy from Spellbound and Rocket Scientist director Jeffrey Blitz.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Swiss Army Man (Daniel Radcliffe)

Earlier this week we covered some of the biggest major releases coming out this summer. But maybe you’re like me — with a few exceptions (The Nice GuysThe BFG, and Jason Bourne), few popcorn movies coming up have me thinking, “I gotta see that.” There are plenty of releases to look forward to, of course, it’s just that very few major titles truly pop when I look over what’s opening in theaters soon.

If you wish there were more options this summer, then luckily for you there are plenty of limited releases to seek out. If you frequent the site, then you’ve probably already read about a few of these upcoming films. But just don’t forget actually to see them when they hit theaters. If you need a breather from all of the hero’s journeys, explosions, and talking CG animals, then the arthouse cinemas have got you covered.

Below, check out our summer movie preview for some independent films you shouldn’t miss.
