X-Force in Deadpool 2 Trailer

This morning brought a new Deadpool 2 trailer to the web, and with it came the surprise reveal of a new team of mutants who have yet to be seen on the big screen: the X-Force.

In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, there’s a shot of Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) standing in the opening of a cargo door on a helicopter…and there are a few other characters standing with him. One of them is Zazie Beetz as Domino, but we’ve never seen the other three characters before, at least not in movie form. So, who are these characters? Let’s pinpoint who’s who when it comes to the X-Force in Deadpool 2. Read More »

Solo Trailer Breakdown - Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian

Last night’s Super Bowl brought our first look at Solo: A Star Wars Story with a 45-second spot introducing the young Han Solo played by Alden Ehrenreich. But it was mostly a tease for the full trailer that arrived this morning with much more footage from the Star Wars spin-off origin story.

There’s not much for us to glean as far as story details are concerned, but this is our first proper glimpse at anything from Solo: A Star Wars Story, and it does provide us with a few pieces of Han Solo’s origin and more. So let’s dig in with this Solo trailer breakdown.

As the Mission: Impossible series moves forward, the missions get bigger and Tom Cruise‘s stunts get more dangerous. This is especially true in the first trailer for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which can only be described as a series of astonishing crashes and falls for Cruise’s death-defying Ethan Hunt, with some plot sprinkled in.

The first trailer for the sixth Mission: Impossible movie debuted Sunday night during the Super Bowl to much buzz, following Ethan Hunt and his IMF team after a botched mission throws their camaraderie into jeopardy and fuels the CIA’s skepticism of Ethan’s loyalty to the U.S. government.

Join us on our frame-by-frame breakdown of the Mission: Impossible – Fallout trailer.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Trailer Breakdown

This morning brought the first trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. Even though there’s plenty of footage in the trailer, which runs just over a minute and a half, we only get a few story details, and none of them include any information on just what kind of villain our new superhero team will be contending with this time. But even so, there were plenty of details to notice, and we’ll run through some of the finer points in our Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer breakdown. Read More »

Ready Player One Trailer breakdown 20

If you’ve read Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One, you know that it’s absolutely steeped in pop culture references. The lead character is a pop culture junkie and there’s barely a page that doesn’t contain some sort of explicit reference to a geek property. While in the book the main character is all about the 1980s, the latest trailer for the film adaptation shows that director Steven Spielberg has eased up on the references to the movies (some of which were references to his work!) and used other, more current media instead.

It works either way, as Ready Player One is set almost entirely inside a virtual world where anything is possible. We all know from experience (and Minecraft) that when given a sandbox nearly every person will use that power to recreate something else someone has already made.

There is a staggering amount of references here, and we scoured the latest trailer to find every single reference and character we could, although there are undoubtedly more.

Jurassic Park Fallen Kingdom trailer breakdown

After a series of borderline excessive teaser videos earlier in the week, Universal Pictures unveiled the first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the newest movie in the long-running franchise.

avengers infinity war breakdown 19

The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War has been released, and it’s a doozy. A comic book movie 10 years in the making, the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe promises to be the epic showdown we were teased ever since Thanos appeared for 0.5 seconds at the end of 2012’s Avengers.

It’s been a long time coming, but it’s mixed blessing — Infinity War is the beginning of the end, with this film and its sequel, Avengers 4, threatening to upend the MCU as we know it. But if the first Infinity War trailer is anything to go by, at least it’ll go out with a bang.

Join us on our frame-by-frame breakdown of the Avengers: Infinity War trailer.
