Austin Found trailer

Kidnapping is normally no laughing matter, but in co-writer/director Will Raee’s upcoming comedy Austin Found, he’s gathered a stellar cast that he hopes will make you forget about real-world problems for a while and just watch a bunch of idiots try to get away with a small-town crime. With names like Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks), Craig Robinson (The Office), Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live), Matt Jones (Breaking Bad), Patrick Warburton (A Series of Unfortunate Events), and Kristen Schaal (The Last Man on Earth) on board, chances are pretty good that you’ll at least crack a smile seeing their antics play out on screen.

Simon Williams Movie Poster - Haxan 2

When Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was still in production, spy photographers spotted some interesting details on a small town set. The scene was set on Earth and it featured an event called the Simon Williams Film Festival. On the set, some fake movie posters were spotted featuring Nathan Fillion as the actor Simon Williams, who just so happens to be better known as Wonder Man in Marvel Comics.

Of course, this sparked excitement from Marvel fans that Nathan Fillion was becoming part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wonder Man. But when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 rolled around, Nathan Fillion was nowhere to be seen. Even the scene in question at the Simon Williams Film Festival was cut, and the posters glimpsed on the set were never seen in the movie. Director James Gunn has since explained why this happened, and now he’s revealed all of the Simon Williams movie posters for you to check out below. Read More »

Star Wars The Last Jedi Vanity Fair Cover

Since the official 40th anniversary of the original Star Wars is coming this week on May 25, it looks like we’re going to get some special sneak peeks at this year’s continuance of the sci-fi saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The first teaser trailer arrived during Star Wars Celebration in Orlando last month, but now fans are hungry for even more. They’ll get it this week, as Vanity Fair has announced they’ll have a batch of photos from the set of the movie arriving on Wednesday, May 24, just as they did for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

To tease the arrival of these photos, Vanity Fair has released four different Star Wars: The Last Jedi covers that provide new looks at Rey (Daisy Ridley), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), General Leia (Carrie Fisher), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Finn (John Boyega), General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and new character Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran).

Supergirl Wonder Woman Promo

The hype machine for Wonder Woman is operating on full blast as we come up on the last week leading up to the release of the DC Comics movie in theaters. Last night, Warner Bros. Pictures made a push by appealing to fans who have already fallen in love with another female superhero on the small screen: Supergirl. A new promo aired on The CW during the season finale of Supergirl, and it features Melissa Benoist strutting her stuff through a small town bar before getting a compliment about a special clothing item she tosses on. Plus, there’s a cameo from a certain guest star from the TV series, the original Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter.

game of thrones season 7 images

A few months ago, we heard that the dragons in Game of Thrones season 7 would be the size of 747 jet airliners. Now, a batch of images from the penultimate season of HBO’s flagship series have revealed the dragons and they don’t appear to be quite as big as 747s. However, they’re still big enough to stomp an entire army into red goo and burn their remains into a fine ash, so let’s not get too caught up on the little details.

This photo is one of several Game of Thrones season 7 images to arrive today and the others show off the other corners of Westeros: snow, scheming, and scowling. The usual.

Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales Clips

There hasn’t been enough inebriated action coming from Walt Disney Pictures, but that will change soon now that a new Pirates of the Caribbean sequel is arriving in theaters this summer.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales brings back Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow for another round of high seas adventure and drunken antics. In a batch of new clips and TV spots from the sequel, Jack Sparrow gets in trouble with the law yet again, and he’s also being pursued by a cursed pirate hunter named Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem). Plus, he finds himself accompanied by Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) the offspring of his previous partner in piracy, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom).

Wonder Woman Clips

In just under two weeks, the world will be given the hero that the DC Extended Universe needs in the form of Wonder Woman. The early buzz on the movie is off the charts, and it sounds like the superhero’s first solo foray on the big screen is exactly what fans of the character have been waiting to see for decades.

Warner Bros. Pictures is in full marketing mode, unleashing all sorts of trailers and TV spots upon the public, and that includes a batch of new clips from the movie that you’ll likely see on television as the Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and more make the publicity rounds to help promote the movie. In these six clips you’ll get some extended sequences from the movie, more of a glimpse into the natural, charming humor that comes from Diana and Steve, and more.

Borg McEnroe

It’s unlikely that George R.R. Martin was inspired to write his A Song of Ice and Fire novels by watching tennis legends Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe face off on the court, but considering the players’ nicknames were Ice and Fire, it wouldn’t be entirely ridiculous. (Mostly ridiculous? Yes.) The Swedish Borg was “Ice,” cool, calm and collected; McEnroe, a notoriously hot-headed New Yorker, was “Fire.” The two faced each other a number of times throughout the late ’70s and early ’80s, developing one of the sport’s most epic rivalries.

Now they’re getting the biopic treatment with a film called Borg/McEnroe. Swedish actor Sverrir Gudnason is playing Borg, but the big draw for me is that Shia LaBeouf – who’s been known to be quite the hot-head himself over the years – is playing McEnroe. Check out the first international Borg/McEnroe trailer below.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties

Neil Gaiman‘s comic book How to Talk to Girl at Parties is a fun read. It’s also a very short read. If adapted faithfully, it’d probably be a great short film. The director behind Rabbit Hole and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, John Cameron Mitchell, had the freedom of adapting the story into a narrative feature film. He got to take the kernel of a story where he wanted to, and where he went with it looks like a blast.

Below, watch the How to Talk to Girls at Parties teasers.
