passengers trailer

On paper, Passengers feels genetically modified to make all of the money in the world. It’s an action-packed science fiction spectacle that is also an intriguing mystery that is also romantic tale of (literally?) star-crossed lovers that also happens to star Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, two of the most instantly likable people being filmed by cameras today. Based purely on its concept (and on the fact that Jon Spaihts‘ screenplay was garnering acclaim for years before it was produced), the new film from director Morten Tyldum made our top 10 most anticipated movies of the fall.

Now that the first trailer has arrived, will I regret fighting for it to be ranked so high?

Spider-Man

Other than Peter Parker’s high school, we don’t have much of an idea where Spider-Man: Homecoming will take us. Director Jon Watts has said that the film will take place on the bottom floor of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that doesn’t mean we’ll get a glimpse of the top level as well. Could we see Spider-man visit Avengers HQ in the new film?

Underworld Blood Wars Trailer - Kate Beckinsale

It’s hard to believe, but we’re coming up on the fifth film in the Underworld franchise. Originally, this sequel started out as a reboot that Kate Beckinsale wasn’t going to be involved in, but the actress returned to the lead role as Selene, and the movie was retooled as just another sequel. Now the first trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars has arrived, and you’ll see that it’s not much different than the first Underworld movie from all the way back in 2003.

uncharted release date

In the least surprising movie news you’ll read this week, Sony has removed the long-gestating film adaptation of the hugely popular Uncharted video game from their schedule. That June 30, 2017 release date has felt unlikely for some time, so this shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone, especially since new talent was just brought hired to beat this movie into shape a month ago.

dark tower interview

The fact that a film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower has finished filming and it currently being edited for an early 2017 release date still amazes me. Just two years ago, this project looked completely and totally dead, the victim of an overly ambitious cross-media plan and budgetary constraints. And now, I can write an article that can include a picture of Idris Elba as Roland Deschain, the last Gunslinger at the top. This blows my mind.

From 2010 through 2015, Ron Howard was steering The Dark Tower alongside his producing partner Brian Grazer, eventually handing the project over to director Nikolaj Arcel. However, Howard and Grazer remained on board as producers and they’ve spilled their guts in a fantastic new interview where they explain the long journey to getting this movie off the ground.

Inferno Featurette

Robert Langdon is back. Six years after Angels & Demons, director Ron Howard and Tom Hanks are returning to a character they can’t seem to get enough of.

There’s an audience for Langdon’s adventures, and that audience will likely be happy to see Hanks back in the role next month.

Below, a new Inferno featurette dives into the latest Robert Langdon mystery.

The Magnificent Seven Character Vignettes

Assembling a cast that doesn’t pale in comparison to the original The Magnificent Seven‘s ensemble must not have been easy. We’re still waiting to see how Antoine Fuqua‘s remake of John Sturges‘ western compares to the original, but The Equalizer director certainly put together a cast that inspires promise. Whether they match the charm of the original cast doesn’t really matter, because even if they come halfway to capturing the magic the original cast had, then we’re in for a treat.

Below, watch The Magnificent Seven character vignettes.
