alien covenant neomorph

When I visited the set of Alien: Covenant last year, we toured the film’s creature shop and one thing was very clear: this movie would feature a more traditional Xenomorph and a bunch of creepy, slimy, and hungry new friends. Now, a newly released image from the film reveals one of the new aliens who will menace director Ridley Scott‘s ensemble in the new movie: the pale, spindly “Neomorph.”

The Keepers Netflix

With the rise of NPR’s popular Serial podcast, HBO’s riveting limited series The Jinx, and Netflix’s wildly addictive Making a Murderer over the span of a couple of years, the true crime genre had never been hotter. It’s cooled down a bit since 2015, but it seems like the public will always be intrigued by a murder mystery, and if a story is framed in the right way, it can still become an outright sensation.

That’s clearly what Netflix is hoping for with The Keepers, the streaming service’s new seven-part docuseries about the unsolved murder of a Baltimore nun and the potential cover-up that’s been going on for nearly fifty years.

Beguiled trailer

Sofia Coppola‘s The Beguiled is a change of pace for the filmmaker. Her remake of Don Siegel‘s 1971 film, or re-adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan‘s “A Painted Devil,” is a gothic thriller with a life on the line, not the sparse character piece we’re accustomed to seeing from Coppola. Naturally, we’re excited to how the writer-director behind Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides works with a story dripping with tension.

Below, watch The Beguiled trailer.

Cloak and Dagger Logo Marvel Freeform

Let’s be real: Marvel Entertainment has produced some pretty damn cheesy television over the past few years. They’re not necessarily bad shows, mind you, but many of them have dipped into super cheesy territory: overly dramatic, seemingly lacking any sense of self-awareness, the works. I don’t need to name names because you know it when you see it.

Today, Freeform (formerly ABC Family) released a trailer for Marvel’s new teen-centric series Cloak and Dagger, and it could just be the editing in this trailer, but man, this show looks like Chester Cheetah: dangerously cheesy.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clips

Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is only just over a couple weeks away, Marvel Studios is making a huge push of new footage in the form of TV spots and clips, especially with the cast making the publicity rounds on late night TV shows and whatnot. Two more clips have just surfaced online featuring plenty of Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, that wonderful Baby Groot (Vin Diesel), and some trouble for the rest of the crew on board the Milano.

The summer movie season hasn’t started yet, but after The Fate of the Furious‘ monster opening weekend at the box office, it almost feels like it’s already begun. Two other mega popcorn movies coming up are The Mummy and Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Director Alex Kurtzman will try to launch the monster universe, while Kon-Tiki directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg attempt to breathe new life into the Pirates franchise.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Wonders of the Sea 3D

Ask anyone you know and they could probably pull out an Arnold Schwarzenegger impression for you. The star of The Terminator, Predator, and Conan the Barbarian has one of the most distinct voices in Hollywood, but he’s rarely done voice over work and has never narrated a documentary film before. That changes with Wonders of the Sea 3D, a doc about ocean conservation that’s co-directed by the son of famed explorer Jacques Cousteau.

See what Arnold Schwarzenegger narrating a doc looks like in the promo reel below. (Spoiler alert: it’s pretty fantastic.) Read More »

The Hero Trailer - Sam Elliott

Now that summer is getting closer, not only will we get the usual onslaught of studio blockbusters looking for box office dollars, but we’ll get plenty of indies looking to attract the niche audiences, including plenty of films that debuted at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. One of those indies just debuted its first promising trailer.

The Hero follows Sam Elliott as Lee Hayden, a former western star past his prime at a point in his career when he’s receiving lifetime achievement awards while he’s still looking for one more career-defining role. Funnily enough, this leading turn for Sam Elliott is getting plenty of praise for being just that.

krypton trailer

It’s been a few years since writer/producer David S. Goyer set out to make Krypton, a television series for SyFy that follows the grandfather of Kal-El (better known as Clark Kent, and even better known as Superman) a few centuries before his planet is destroyed. You know, as seen/referenced in just about every Superman movie. It’s been a little while since we’ve heard any major updates about the show, but now a trailer has arrived, giving us a look at what appears to be a very ambitious television show…and one that looks to be very much set in the DC Extended Universe.
