suicide squad clip

Suicide Squad opens in just a few weeks and the best thing I can say about the movie’s marketing is that I have no idea what to expect. The trailers have been offbeat and impressive. The character designs are funky and completely out of left field. It looks hugely different in scale and intent from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which suggests a burgeoning DC movie universe that won’t be afraid to try different things. There’s a lot of stuff here that has me excited, which does a fine job of tempering the aspects that I’m dreading.

Above all, I’m most curious to see Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, the Joker’s psychopathic girlfriend who finds herself sprung from prison and forcibly recruited into a special ops team composed entirely of super villains. A new clip from the film shows her in action and let’s just say that she can give Captain America a run for his money in the “fighting bad guys in an elevator” department.

Futurama Live-Action Fan Film Trailer

Fans of Futurama were given a glorious gift when the canceled animated comedy returned for all new episodes for a short period of time. That’s about all fans of a canceled television show can hope for outside of seeing it revived as a feature film. However, now they can have both wishes fulfilled thanks to a simultaneously impressive and fairly creepy project from the folks at Cinema Relics.

Fan-O-Rama is a live-action fan film adaptation of Matt Groening‘s animated series Futurama. Fans of the show know that there’s a lot of elements from the show that would surely look strange when brought into the real world, and the Fan-O-Rama trailer that’s just debuted online is evidence of that for sure, especially when you get a look at Leela, Zoidberg and Professor Farnsworth.

better things trailer

Pamela Adlon has been a familiar face (and for many viewers, a more familiar voice) on television for decades, so it’s about time someone built an entire show around her. Better Things joins the FX network’s line-up in a few months and it certainly looks promising, showcasing a strong pedigree onscreen and off. How could you say no to a single-camera sitcom created by Adlon and Louis C.K., who frequently brought out the absolute best in her during her guest stints on Louie? The first full trailer for the show is here and it looks like it could be something very special.

NARCOS_201_00820RC

Since Netflix’s Narcos is based on historical events, all it takes is one quick Wikipedia search to figure out where the show is headed next. But getting there is the fun part, of course, and it looks like we can look forward to plenty of drama and intrigue in the next run of episodes. The streaming service has just released a fresh batch of Narcos season 2 first look images, and you can check ’em out below.

Returning for the next season are Wagner Moura as drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, Boyd Holbrook as DEA agent Steve Murphy, and Pedro Pascal as DEA agent Javier Peña.  Read More »

godzilla resurgence trailer

Movie fans are pretty evenly divided when it comes to director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot from 2014. One viewer’s patient, crafty, and unnerving monster mash is another viewer’s self-indulgent and paper thin bore. I’m very much a member of that first group and think that the 2014 film is a brilliant way of reinventing one of cinema’s most famous monsters in a way that actually makes him feel like he actually matters again.

But sometimes, you really just want a guy in a giant lizard suit stepping on buildings and that’s where Godzilla Resurgence comes in. This Toho production has no connection to the new film and the new trailer showcases a film attempting to strike a tricky balance between paying homage to the past while boldly stepping into the future. It’s also one helluva teaser.

lego batman movie images

While I remain very interested in where Ben Affleck takes the Caped Crusader in his upcoming solo Batman movie, I’m starting to think my heart lies with Will Arnett‘s LEGO Batman. First introduced as the best part (which is saying a great deal) of the against-all-odds remarkable The LEGO Movie, the character is getting his own spin-off movie and the two teaser trailers released so far have left quite an impression on me. Blame it on my love of the 1960s Batman series and Adam West’s brilliant, deadpan take on the character, but this is the Batman I want to see.

We expect to learn a lot more about The LEGO Batman Movie at Comic-Con this week, but in the meantime, we can take a look at a few newly released details about the film as well as our first look at the Joker (voiced by Zack Galifianakis) and Robin the Boy Wonder (voiced by Michael Cera).

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

alien covenant wraps

Alien: Covenant, the the sixth film in the Alien series and the third time director Ridley Scott has helmed one of these movies, has officially wrapped filming and the official Alien Twitter account has shared a new photo from the set to prove it. Despite a pretty steady series of behind the scenes photos and little updates, this has been the rare major studio film to make it this far in the process with the vast majority of its secrets intact. Outside of a cast list, a basic synopsis, and a wild (and potentially spoilery) rumor about Katherine Waterston‘s character, we know precious little about Alien: Covenant.

So let’s just ponder this set photo, shall we?

Moana international trailer

In June we shared with you the first trailer for Walt Disney Animation’s next film Moana, which mostly focused on Dwayne Johnson‘s character, demigod Maui. A new international trailer hit the web last night, showing a completely different sequence from early in the film.

Fans in attendance at last year’s D23 Expo will recognize this footage as an early version of it was shown off in Anaheim. The story at the center of this film has yet to suck me in, but this beautiful and poetic sequence has me very interested. Watch the Moana international trailer now, embedded after the jump.

xXx Return of Xander Cage trailer

I’d say “I can’t believe they made another xXx movie,” but in a year where we’ve gotten sequels for everything from Independence Day: Resurgence to Snow White and the Huntsman, of freaking course they made another xXx movie. After all, Vin Diesel is bigger now than he’s ever been, but even he can’t make another Fast and the Furious movie every year. Why not squeeze him into a different action-adventure in the meantime?

Directed by D.J. Caruso, xXx: Return of Xander Cage brings the extreme-sports-enthusiast-turned-spy out of retirement for a dangerous new assignment. Samuel L. Jackson is back as his handler, Augustus Gibbons, and the supporting cast includes Ruby RoseNina DobrevDonnie YenTony Jaa, and Kris Wu. Watch the first xXx: Return of Xander Cage trailer below.  Read More »
