It’s been an interesting few days for Power Rangers fans. First, a wave of new character posters arrived a few days ago, showing off those redesigned costumes in all of their glory and/or tragedy, depending on your perspective. But those were just the prelude for the first trailer, which debuted at NYCC over the weekend. The reactions were…divisive. And now, the first wave of publicity continues with a batch of new photos and an official synopsis.

John Wick was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2014, a lean, mean thriller that delivered stylish action and a fantastically fun leading performance from Keanu Reeves. So naturally, John Wick: Chapter 2 has been high on the list of our most anticipated films of 2017. Earlier this week Lionsgate offered a small slice of footage from the sequel, and today they’ve served up a full-fledged trailer. Watch the John Wick Chapter 2 trailer below. Read More »
Today brought the first look at the latest attempt to bring Power Rangers to the big screen straight from New York Comic-Con, and this was even more of a tease than we were expecting. While the first teaser trailer gives us the origins of the teenage defenders of Angel Grove, who all feel like they have personalities lifted straight from The Breakfast Club, it features exactly zero footage of the titular heroes suited up in action.

This weekend, attendees at New York Comic-Con will be treated to the first footage from Power Rangers, the latest effort to bring the long-running sci-fi action TV series to the big screen. We’re hoping that the first teaser trailer for the movie will also be unveiled online this weekend, just like the first trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, but we’ll see what happens.
In the meantime, five new Power Rangers posters have debuted from NYCC. Each of them show off one of the five titular warriors tasked with protecting Earth from Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) and any giant monsters she may summon to Angel Grove, even if starting world domination somewhere else would prove to be more beneficial. Anyway, check out the new Power Rangers posters after the jump. Read More »

Luc Besson‘s Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets wasn’t on my radar until our own Peter Sciretta came back from Comic-Con this summer with many nice things to say about the first footage from the film. I run hot and cold with Besson (there are days where I think he’s a genius and there are days where I think his reach exceeds his grasp), but tell me that the guy who made The Fifth Element is making another science fiction action movie and I’ll just ask for a release date and clear my schedule.
A batch of new photos and a poster for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets have arrived online ahead of the film’s booth at the New York Comic-Con this week and they’re just wild enough to further hold my attention.

This weekend brings New York Comic-Con to the Big Apple, and while it’s not quite as big as San Diego Comic-Con over the summer, there will still be some goods that you’ll want to pay attention to. More specifically, Lionsgate will be unveiling a sneak peek at footage from John Wick: Chapter 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the action thriller starring Keanu Reeves.
Before the John Wick 2 trailer premieres this weekend, the studio has delivered a tease of the trailer. Honestly, we’re not big fans of an advertisement for an advertisement, but we just want to make sure you know to stay tuned this weekend for the full trailer when it arrives. So watch the John Wick 2 teaser below if you feel like it. Read More »
Gavin O’Connor has directed two movies that should’ve had bigger audiences. Miracle did respectably at the box office, but that inspiring drama still felt slightly overlooked the year it came out. O’Connor’s 2011 film, Warrior, opened to positive reviews but a weak opening at the box office. The movie, which reportedly cost $25 million, made under $14 million in the States. It was a shame seeing a movie that sincere not connect, but the film has found some fans over the years. Maybe not enough fans to make a Warrior 2 a reality, but that’s not stopping O’Connor from considering a sequel.
Below, read what O’Connor had to say about a Warrior sequel.

For David Fincher’s drama, The Social Network, Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor and composer Atticus Ross teamed up to deliver their first collaboration on a feature film score. Since then, they’ve reteamed with the filmmaker for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl, always delivering spectacular award worthy scores. But their next feature film collaboration will see them working with a different director this time.
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (who last collaborated on Fisher Stevens’ climate change documentary Before the Flood) will be providing the score for Patriots Day, the Boston Marathon bombing drama directed by Deepwater Horizon and Lone Survivor helmer, which will again reteam the filmmaker with star Mark Wahlberg.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Very little is showy about Peter Berg‘s movies. He’s typically a filmmaker who manages to stay invisible, often successfully trying his hand at different genres. His strengths — his eye for performances and grasp on tension, in particular — are never overt in his movies. He’s a director that can build and build pressure over an extended period and create a great sense of geography with some quick cutting, but again, his skills never draw your attention away from the story.
As the director’s latest film, Deepwater Horizon, hits theaters, I wanted to take a look back at his career so far. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the opportunity to see Deepwater Horizon before putting together this list, but the reviews are enough to convince me to see it as soon as possible. Below, check out our Peter Berg ranking.

Unfortunately, Blair Witch was not quite the hit sequel that Lionsgate was hoping it would be. The film has only pulled in $16.5 million domestically and another $11.5 million internationally. That’s a bummer, because it’s actually quite the scary sequel that expands the mythology of The Blair Witch Project without ruining anything or revealing too much.
Now those of you have seen it may be thinking to yourself that the movie does reveal too much about the legend at the core of the horror franchise, mostly because it appears to reveal the titular spirit/monster/whatever. But writer Simon Barrett recently confirmed that we don’t actually see the Blair Witch on screen at all. Find out more below, but beware of spoilers. Read More »
