jigsaw first look

Every horror series that runs for a long time becomes fascinating by default, but the Saw series was fascinating long before it limped to a supposed finish line with 2010’s Saw: The Final Chapter. But nothing can keep a popular horror franchise dead for long and the series returns (reboots?) this year with Jigsaw, the eighth film in the long-running, critically despised, and surprisingly worthy-of-additional-study series.

A Jigsaw first look, along with plot details and comments from the film’s directors, has arrived online, so let’s take a look.

American Assassin Trailer - Dylan O'Brien

It’s been some time since we’ve seen Taylor Kitsch, mostly because he starred in a stream of bad movies that included Battleship and Savages, as well as the sorely underrated and underseen box office bomb that was John Carter. He had a bit of an uptick by being part of the ensemble cast of Lone Survivor, but now he’s playing for the bad guys in a new action thriller.

American Assassin adapts Vince Flynn’s novel of the same name, which introduces us to CIA black ops recruit Mitch Rapp (Dylan O’Brien), a recurring character in 15 of the aforementioned author’s books. Rapp is recruited by Cold War veteran Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton) to join his team, tasked by the CIA to find the source of some recent attacks on both civilian and military targets. As we learn in a new American Assassin trailer from our friends across the pond, it turns out that the man behind these attacks is a former trainee (Kitsch) of Hurley’s, and that makes him quite the formidable opponent.

Power Rangers Honest Trailer

Lionsgate made their attempt at bringing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers back to the big screen earlier this year, and now that the movie is available on home video, Screen Junkies has taken some cracks at the teenage superhero team with a new Honest Trailer.

Power Rangers took quite the serious approach to the goofy TV series that was imported from Japan and adapted for American audiences in the 1990s, and Honest Trailers wastes no time pointing out how this movie spends 90 minutes on having the titular heroes bond and train, only to conclude with a 30-minute big budget version of the TV series. Should we really be surprised though?

john wick 3

John Wick and its sequel, John Wick: Chapter 2 were unexpected critical and box office hits, so naturally, people keep asking director Chad Stahelski if we’re going back to the wild and violent world of John Wick. And Stahelski confirms, yeah, he’s thinking we’ll go back. (Don’t hate me, I know the joke is bad.)

The stuntman-turned-director gave an update on the status of the third movie in what he hopes will be a trilogy, John Wick: Chapter 3, as well as the possibility of expanding the underground assassin world seen in the movies through a television series.

John Wick 2 Kill Count Video

Though it feels like much more time has passed it was just earlier this year that Keanu Reeves returned as the notorious hit man that everybody should be scared of in John Wick: Chapter 2. The sequel was not only on par with its surprise hit predecessor, but it managed to up the ante on the action front and even expand the mythology of the world in which it exists in a rather interesting way, not to mention leaving the door open for a sequel that we can’t wait to see.

Since John Wick is out for blood again, this time with an obligation brought forth to him by another hit man, there’s a pretty serious body count this time around, around 50% higher than the first film. If you haven’t had the time to rewatch John Wick: Chapter 2 lately, a new kill count video assembles all of death delivered at the hands of Keanu Reeves.
