Last year Ridley Scott delivered the crowd-pleasing sci-fi survival drama The Martian, and now he’s busy shooting Alien: Covenant, the first film in what is supposed to be a new trilogy that will lead up to the events of the original Alien from 1979. But before that, Scott had time to produce a promising new sci-fi thriller directed by his son Luke Scott.
The film is called Morgan, and the first teaser trailer just debuted with some flares of Alien, Ex Machina and Firestarter. Plus, it’s a pure teaser that doesn’t give much away, which makes it all the move intriguing. Watch the Morgan trailer after the jump. Read More »

Following up the disastrous experience of making Alien 3, director David Fincher made the uncompromising and unforgettable thriller, Se7en. Instead of directing a butchered version of Andrew Kevin Walker‘s hot spec script, Fincher and the film’s stars, Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, fought to preserve one of the script’s most defining scenes–the ending. Fincher was initially sent an old draft of the script, which included the original ending before it was rewritten. After being informed he received the wrong draft, the director said he’d only make it if they used the original script. And thank God he made that decision, because if he hadn’t made Se7en, perhaps we would’ve gotten the watered down version of Detective Somerset’s (Freeman) grueling story. Worst of all, the filmmaker never would’ve won his MTV movie award.
The original Se7en poster with two floating heads is fine, but the custom Se7en poster featured below, inspired by the artist/fan’s theory, does the great thriller justice.

The Nice Guys has a lot going for it. It’s got a A-list pairing in Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe, and the verve and style of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3 mastermind Shane Black. Oh, and it’s really, really good — a lovable mix of cynicism and sincerity, dropped against a cool ’70s noir backdrop and liberally sprinkled with humor and charisma. What it doesn’t have going for it, however, is a recognizable brand name. It’s not a sequel to an already-beloved movie, like Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising or Captain America: Civil War. It’s not even based on a phenomenally popular property from another medium, like The Angry Birds Movie.
So what are these schmucks to do? In a field like that, how is a scrappy little action-comedy like The Nice Guys supposed to compete? That’s exactly what Nice Guys producer Joel Silver would like to know, as he loudly (and hilariously) rants to Gosling and Crowe in a meta bit of The Nice Guys marketing. They don’t really come up with any good answers, but it sure is fun to watch them try. Read More »
Fox is looking to the past for its 2017 slate, reviving two of the shows that helped shape the network’s identity during the early and mid-’00s. And yet, both are coming back in very different forms. In one corner, you have Prison Break, returning as a special event series that will act as a sequel to the series finale and feature characters fans already know and love. In the other, you have 24: Legacy, which borrows its parent show’s basic format while bringing an entirely new cast into the fray.

Back in 2007, Mark Wahlberg starred in the feature film Shooter, an action thriller based on the book Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter. The story followed an expert marksman who is called back into action in order to foil a plot to kill the President of the United States of America. But he ends up being framed for the crime instead and ends up on the run. Now Ryan Phillippe is in the lead of a TV series at USA that is bringing the same story to the small screen, and the first trailer has just arrived.

Director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) last boarded a moving train with Jane Got a Gun, a project that was plagued with problems before he arrived on set. The Western quickly disappeared from theaters this year, but it’s hard to blame O’Connor, who typically delivers quality dramas. The director’s new film, The Accountant, opens in theaters later this year. The thriller stars Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jean Smart, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow.

Lately, we’ve seen some trailers that begin with advertisements for the trailer. I don’t understand this trend, but it seems to keep happening. Hell or High Water is the latest trailer to begin with an ad, including shots we see later on in the footage. Why you’d have to sell a trailer to someone who’s already decided to watch it is beyond me, but enough about that. Let’s instead focus on Hell or High Water, the upcoming film from Starred Up and Perfect Sense director David Mackenzie. Mackenzie’s thriller stars Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges, and more.
Watch the Hell or High Water trailer below.
