Black PantherBlack Panther

The cast of the anticipated new Marvel film Black Panther graced the cover of Entertainment Weekly this morning and it already looks like nothing we’ve ever seen from Marvel. The lush, rich colors, the immaculate costume detailing — how could it get any better?

Mary Poppins Returns images

Making a sequel to Mary Poppins over 50 years after the original film charmed audiences all over the world and quickly established itself as an instant classic that maintains all of its magic and charm in 2017 sounds like a terrible idea on paper…but it’s hard not to be completely won over by the thought of Emily Blunt stepping in for the great Julie Andrews and Hamilton maestro Lin-Manuel Miranda lending his talents as her co-star.

And now, a bunch of new photos from Mary Poppins Returns have debuted online, offering our first good look at Rob Marshall‘s upcoming musical.

stranger things season 2

Everyone who binged the first season of Netflix’s Stranger Things last year probably walked away with a favorite character (I’m partial to David Harbour’s weary Sheriff Jim Hopper), but there was one character who left the biggest thumbprint on pop culture in 2016: Millie Bobby Brown‘s Eleven. The Eggo-loving, telekinetic government test subject was the perfect blend of innocent and badass, winning over the hearts of just about everyone with a Netflix login.

While the first season ended with her current status unknown, we’ve known that she’d be back for the second season for some time now. And wouldn’t you know it, she’s now front and center on a new magazine cover.

civil war baron zemo

As the very positive reviews for Captain America: Civil War have begun to arrive on the internet, many critics have addressed how well the movie has been sold to audiences. It seems that the important beats, characters, and sequences have been left out of the marketing altogether, preserving more than a few surprises for audiences who buy tickets for the film when it opens in a few weeks. One those characters absent from every trailer, clip, TV spot, and poster is Baron Zemo, the old school Captain America villain who is played by Rush and Inglourious Basterds star Daniel Brühl in the film.

And while we’ll probably have to wait until the film is released to get a look at the character in motion or to hear him speak, the first official look at the character is here and…well, it’s not what you’d expect.

star wars magazine covers

By this time next month, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will have graced the cover of just about every major entertainment publication on the planet. Any editor worth his or her salary would have arranged to have the most anticipated movie of 2015 appear in the pages of their magazine. It’s the Circle of Blockbuster Hype: The Force Awakens has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of all time, so everyone keeps on talking about it… and since everyone is talking about it, it has the potential to be one of the biggest movies of all time. Insert signing lions here – Disney does own Star Wars, after all.

Anyway, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled four new Star Wars: The Force Awakens covers, each of them showing off a separate character. Depending on your personal taste (or which one randomly decides to show up in your mailbox, if you’re a subscriber), you can pick up a copy featuring Harrison Ford as Han Solo, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, and C-3PO and R2-D2 as themselves. Well, technically those last two are Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker. Check out the covers for yourself after the jump.

fantastic beasts first look

You’ve got to hand it to J.K. Rowling – she’s certainly not resting on her laurels. In the years since she wrapped up her seven-novel Harry Potter series, she’s dabbled in new genres, even writing under a pseudonym (which ultimately became the worst-kept secret in the world) for a few books. And now that she’s returning to her Wizarding World, a universe that helped the define popular culture for a generation,  she seems intent on exploring as many mediums as possible.

With the actual Harry Potter sequel, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, heading to the London stage, Rowling is making her screenwriting debut with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, a film set in the same universe as The Boy Who Lived, just 80 or so years earlier. And now our first look at the film, and its hero, played by Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne, has arrived.

UPDATE: Several more images from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have been released, and you can find them all after the jump.
