star trek beyond trailer

The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond was a big ‘ol slice of cringe, the kind of marketing that makes longtime fans and newbies alike sink into their theater seats with embarrassment. The new preview, which was initially unveiled as part of a special fan event before warping its way online, feels like a pretty darn good apology. This isn’t the most mind-blowing trailer you’ll see this year, but it accomplishes its one job quite effectively – it makes Star Trek Beyond look like a proper Star Trek movie and something worth seeing.

Ron Perlman as Cable

Another day, another name attempts to campaign for the role of Cable in Deadpool 2. The Marvel Comics character was teased as an addition to the sequel by The Merc with a Mouth himself in a closing credits scene that parodied Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and since then the likes of Stephen Lang and Dolph Lundgren have thrown their hats in the ring. Now one more actor has revealed his desire to play the role, and he’s no stranger to comic book action.

Hellboy and Sons of Anarchy star Ron Perlman has taken to social media to convince everyone how perfect he is for the role of Cable, and when you see a piece of artwork featuring the actor as the character, it’s hard to argue with him. See Ron Perlman as Cable after the jump. Read More »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turltes 2 TV Spots

Between Shredder and Baxter Stockman and Bebop and Rocksteady, you’d think our heroes in a half shell would have more than enough to contend with already. But apparently the filmmakers behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows didn’t think so, because they’re also throwing Krang into the mix. Earlier reports indicated that Saturday Night Live alum Fred Armisen would voice the squishy pink alien, but now Armisen’s out and Brad Garrett will be stepping up instead.   Read More »

Justin Lin (Star Trek: Beyond) helped to reinvigorate the Fast & Furious brand in a big way. Lin, who has directed four sequels in the franchise, took the series to the next level with Fast Five, the most enjoyable sequel in the series up until that point. The Fast & Furious movies became more popular, more successful, and more enjoyable, in large part thanks to Lin, who established a new tone and broadened the franchise’s scope. He opted out of directing Furious 7, but the Better Luck Tomorrow director might return to, as Vin Diesel says, “finish what you started.”

Learn more about the potential Furious 10 director below.
