Big Little Lies season 2

Big Little Lies is one of the best things I saw on television this year, and Emmy voters agreed with that assessment: the show won eight trophies at the most recent ceremony, taking home prizes for Outstanding Limited Series and Outstanding Lead Actress for Nicole Kidman (who did some of the best work of her career in the show).

Whispers of a second season began almost immediately after the first season ended, leaving many viewers conflicted: the first season wrapped up so well…could they possibly be able to top themselves by coming back for more? While HBO has yet to officially announce production on the start of Big Little Lies season 2, a new report says that the gang is getting back together again to head back to Monterey. And now star Reese Witherspoon has dropped out of a planned movie, so there’s another piece of evidence pointing toward the inevitability of a second season.

Crater movie

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of director Shawn Levy? For many movie-literate fans, the answer is probably the uber-bankable Night at the Museum film franchise. But lately, Levy has earned some Cool Points™ as a producer of Netflix’s mega-hit series Stranger Things, and now it sounds like he’s found a sci-fi coming-of-age story of his own to direct with Crater.

all the money in the world

In a highly surprising move, Ridley Scott has decided to remove all of Kevin Spacey‘s scenes in the upcoming All the Money In the World and reshoot them with actor Christopher Plummer. The decision comes as a result of multiple sexual assault allegations levied against Spacey in recent weeks. This is an unprecedented decision: All the Money In the World was already finished, had released a trailer, and was set for release in a month. Even more surprising is news that Scott and the producers still plan to adhere to the film’s original release date.

Mosaic trailer

Director Steven Soderbergh‘s latest experiment has arrived. After investigating different financing models for Logan Lucky earlier this year, the filmmaker has unveiled a new interactive project called Mosaic, which will be broadcast as a six-part limited series on HBO in January. But you don’t have to wait until then to see the story play out. Mosaic is also an interactive app that’s available to download for free right now; using branching narratives, users can choose which perspective to watch the story unfold, and dive back in and explore the narrative from different angles once the story is over to see what you missed.

Watch the new Mosaic trailer below, and learn more about what the press release says “could be the next step in storytelling.”

Detroit re-release trailer

Detroit was Kathryn Bigelow‘s first feature film since 2012’s acclaimed Zero Dark Thirty, but the harrowing historical drama didn’t seem to have nearly as big an impact as Annapurna Pictures had hoped. The film garnered middling box office and mixed reviews and seemed to have faded from everyone’s memory after it left theaters. Now, sensing that this year’s Oscar race is slightly underwhelming, Annapurna is giving Bigelow’s film another chance with a re-release, and a new Detroit trailer has arrived to signal the new awards season push.

The Post Trailer

There aren’t many filmmakers who could attach themselves to a movie in March, lock down a cast headlined by the likes of Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, start shooting in May, and have the film locked and ready for awards season that very same year. But Steven Spielberg isn’t your average director, and that’s exactly what he did with The Post, his new film about the controversial publication of the Pentagon Papers back in the 1970s. Hot on the heels of the first images from the movie, the first trailer has arrived and you can check it out below.

Creed 2 Drago's son

Ryan Coogler’s outstanding 2015 film Creed was all about legacy: a son stepping out of his father’s shadow with the help of one of his old man’s best friends and most famous rival. That friend happened to be boxing legend Rocky Balboa, and since Coogler is busy with Black Panther, Rocky actor Sylvester Stallone is stepping behind the camerato direct Creed 2, which he’s been heavily teasing on Instagram over the past few months.

Stallone hinted that Dolph Lundgren‘s Ivan Drago might return to the franchise in some capacity, and we wondered if that meant Lundgren would step back into the ring or return to train a new character. Now, a UFC fighter has revealed that he’s auditioned to play Drago’s son in the film, so it seems as if the sequel will continue that thematic exploration of legacy that began in Creed.

Does Luke join the Dark Side

“It’s time for the Jedi to end.” Star Wars fans practically lost their minds when Luke Skywalker uttered those words in a trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and that statement combined with images of the sci-fi icon looking stern and shrouded in shadows on posters have made it clear that the Luke we meet in this movie has experienced some major changes since we saw him in Return of the Jedi.

But does Luke join the Dark Side in The Last Jedi? In a new interview, actor Mark Hamill talks about Luke’s state of mind and sheds some light on how he’s doing when we catch up with him. If you’re looking to avoid spoilers, it might be best to sit this one out.

fifty shades freed trailer

Part of being an adult means acknowledging that some movies just aren’t made for you and taking a big step back and letting the intended audience have some fun. But part of being an adult in a permanent state of arrested development means giggling through the final Fifty Shades Freed trailer, which is downright ridiculous. Sexy architects! Car chases! Knife-wielding stalkers! BDSM! Dramatic pronouncements that someone is staying at the office to get more work done! This preview has it all.
