What’s this? There are sequels everywhere, and now Tim Burton’s Gothic stop-motion animated classic The Nightmare Before Christmas is getting one too.

Only it’s not a sequel meant for the cinemas. The Nightmare Before Christmas sequel is coming in the form of a comic book, nearly 25 years after the original first waltzed into theaters.

What Happened to Monday trailer

Netflix has unveiled a new trailer for a dystopian thriller called What Happened to Monday that features Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) playing seven identical twin sisters whose very existence is a crime: they’ve secretly grown to adulthood in a world in which every family is only allowed to have one child. This looks like a ridiculously fun B-movie, and I can’t wait to check it out. Watch the trailer below.

Comrade Detective trailer

Amazon has unveiled the first trailer for its new series Comrade Detective, and while I think a lot of you are really going to dig this show, it might be a little too niche for mainstream audiences.

It’s being presented as a long-lost, hard-boiled Romanian cop show from the 1980s that’s recently been found and restored by Channing Tatum, who executive produces the show and has dubbed over the lead actor’s voice with his own. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nick Offerman, Jenny Slate, Mahershala Ali, and tons of other great actors all contribute voiceovers, too. Check out the explosive first trailer below.

James Bond 25

Update: The New York Times is reporting that Daniel Craig will return as James Bond in the 25th 007 adventure due out on 2019. This is not an official announcement (they cite several anonymous sources), but it feels right. After all, there’s no way EON doesn’t want to give Craig’s version of the character a grand finale following the disappointing Spectre.

Our original story follows below.

***

The end credits of every James Bond movie always include a title card promising that “James Bond will return,” and now we know exactly when the world’s greatest super spy will be coming back to the big screen. Read on find out everything we know about the still-untitled James Bond 25.

Unlocked trailer 2

It’s been a long time since the original Bourne trilogy, and terrorism thrillers – even last year’s continuation of that franchise, Jason Bourne – don’t have quite the same appeal that they used to. I don’t know if it’s because we’re too far from the events of September 11, 2001, or if these movies can sometimes feel too fresh because we’re sadly never far enough from the latest devastating attack somewhere in the world, but a low-level B-movie about preventing a terrorist attack doesn’t feel like the norm anymore. And it feels especially weird when when a movie like that, in this case a film called Unlocked, is directed by an acclaimed documentary filmmaker like Michael Apted (the Up series).

But now he’s back with The Snowman, an adaptation of the popular novel by author Jo Nesbø that centers on a dogged detective attempting to stop an elaborate serial killer’s twisted rampage.

Mr Mercedes Trailer

It seems like even cellular networks are getting into the TV streaming game. And surprisingly, AT&T looks like it has a pretty solid first offering.

Stephen King‘s hardboiled 2014 detective novel Mr. Mercedes will be adapted into an AT&T original series, with reputable names behind and in front of the camera, including Big Little Lies creator David E. Kelley as showrunner and Brendan Gleeson as the star. And the recently released Mr. Mercedes trailer suggests that this unusual project is shaping up to be quite good.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

the batman director

Part of the reason Matt Reeves‘ take on the Planet of the Apes movies works so well is that as Caesar reluctantly fights his way through various conflicts with humans, you can feel the filmmaker’s distaste for war permeating the story. He’s able to successfully balance blockbuster spectacle with genuine emotion and makes us care about the characters, an important aspect of storytelling that can often get lost in films of that scale.

Fans of Reeves’ approach will be happy to hear that he plans on carrying that mentality over to his take on the Caped Crusader with his new Batman movie (which is supposedly called The Batman, but is still officially untitled). In a new interview, the director talks about how he wants to tell “a very emotional Batman story” and also takes a moment to praise Christopher Nolan‘s techniques in The Dark Knight trilogy.
