As we saw last year with The Force Awakens, the Star Wars marketing team knows how to reveal tons of imagery, footage, and juicy detail without giving away much at all. Now, as Rogue One enters the final weeks of its promotional campaign, it seems to be sticking to a similar formula of intense secrecy combined with total ubiquity. You can’t throw a rock these days without hitting yet another new Rogue One TV spot or specialty poster or cast interview, and yet I’m feeling pretty confident that we can trust Disney not to “spoil” anything significant. Your mileage may vary, of course.
Which brings us to Disney’s latest volley in their relentless campaign for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The studio’s unveiled a whole bunch of hi-res Rogue One images, some of which are just higher-quality versions of photos we’ve already seen and others of which appear to be completely new. Either way, you can probably rest assured you’re in good hands with Disney. At least unless you’re the kind of spoilerphobe who’s sworn off all Rogue One marketing already, in which case you’ve probably already scrolled past this post. See the new Rogue One images below.

The aliens in Denis Villeneuve‘s adaptation of Ted Chiang‘s Arrival are remarkably simple. Besides not sharing any glaringly obvious resemblances to any other aliens we’ve seen lately on film, there’s a gracefulness to how they move, communicate, and interact with their ship’s environment. Unsurprisingly, the final designs we saw don’t share a whole lot in common with some original designs concept artist Peter Konig made for the emotional sci-fi drama.
Below, see some of the alternative Arrival alien designs. Read More »
Way back in the spring of this year, we got our first look at Elizabeth Banks as the villain Rita Repulsa in the latest big screen adaptation of Power Rangers. She looks drastically different than she did in the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series, looking less like a medieval witch and more like an alien vixen from the Species franchise.
Now some new photos of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa provides another glimpse at the character, this time showing us one trait that took influence from her look in the 1990s TV series. In addition, Rita Repulsa took over the official Power Rangers Twitter yesterday during Cyber Monday to make some truly weird product endorsements.
Check out the new Rita Repulsa photos after the jump. Read More »
Fans of the 1991 animated classic Beauty and the Beast got quite a glimpse at the live-action remake coming from Disney in the spring thanks to the new trailer that was unveiled not too long ago. It looks very loyal to Disney’s first attempt at telling the tale as old as time, but advanced visual effects gives director Bill Condon an opportunity to tell the story in a new way, and it looks positively fantastic.
Now we get another little glimpse at the movie in the form of a new photo that finally gives us a shot of Luke Evans as Gaston attempting to catch the eye of Emma Watson as Belle. Read More »

New Mutants has been in development at 20th Century Fox for a little while now, and so far progress has looked steady but slow. Writer/director Josh Boone signed on last year and screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber came aboard this past summer. The studio still hasn’t announced any stars or an official release date, and we’ve heard next to nothing about the plot. But as that planned 2017 start date gets closer, more and more info is coming out.
A new animatic showcases the film’s antagonist, and offers a little taste of the film’s overall vibe. In addition, there’s another new casting rumor floating around, as well as word of the film’s targeted release date. Click through to get all the latest on New Mutants. Read More »

Logan is a full-color movie, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at the official images, most of which have been presented in crisp black and white. They’ve got a dramatic, old-fashioned fel to them, but the lack of color means they don’t necessarily make for the best representation of what the film will actually look like.
Today’s new Logan photo, on the other hand, is practically bursting with color by comparison. There are orange flames, green leaves, blue denim… and dark red blood, because in Logan, Wolverine is actually capable of getting hurt and injured. Click through to see the latest Logan photo. Read More »

It only took 20+ years, but Martin Scorsese‘s Silence is finally coming to theaters next month. Ahead of the trailer’s premiere later this week, Paramount has unveiled the first Silence poster and a couple new Silence images.
Meanwhile, there’s a bit of bad news for another Scorsese project that’s been simmering for a long while. The Frank Sinatra musical biopic that he’s been developing on and off for the past several years is apparently dead, at least according to screenwriter Michael Chabon.
See the new Silence photos and get the latest on the Sinatra movie below. Read More »

Hours ago we got a peek behind the scenes of Better Call Saul season two. Now we’ve got a little look ahead at season three, which will premiere in 2017.
As a spinoff to Breaking Bad, one of the most acclaimed TV dramas of all time, Better Call Saul came pre-loaded with massive hype and sky-high expectations. And the show has delivered. Over the course of its first two seasons, Better Call Saul has proven to be a worthy successor and complement to that earlier series — but it’s also emerged as its own thing, hilarious and thrilling and surprisingly heart-wrenching. We can’t wait to see what’s ahead for Slippin’ Jimmy, so click on through to see some Better Call Saul season 3 first look photos.
