hands of stone trailer

Few sports are as inherently cinematic as boxing. Whether you care for it or not, two men entering a ring armed only with their strength, their speed, and their raw determination is just plain dramatic. It’s a game of stunning comebacks and upsets. It’s a world of dizzying highs and painful lows. Boxing stories, whether they’re based on truth or constructed for the screen, make for good movies.

Hands of Stone is based on one of those “too weird to be anything but true” sports stories, telling the story of Panamanian boxer Roberto Duran, who famously fought Sugar Ray Leonard twice in 1980 with, well, peculiar results. The trailer for director Jonathan Jakubowicz‘s film is edited to make this look like a more traditional story, but if he follows the facts, there’s going to be a lot more going on here.

The Walking Dead - Negan

No, we still don’t know who was at the other end of Negan’s bat in that The Walking Dead season 6 cliffhanger. But AMC did reveal the first The Walking Dead season 7 trailer, which among other things features the very first glimpse of Khary Payton in character as Ezekiel. And yes, Shiva is sitting beside him. Watch the Walking Dead season 7 trailer below.

fear the walking dead comic-con trailer

I haven’t been keeping up with AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead, but I will say this much about the new trailer that just premiered at Comic-Con 2016: it’s genuinely refreshing to see a zombie TV series that’s not set in the backwoods of Georgia. While its parent series has generally hung around a single region for seven seasons, the young spin-off has been steadily journeying down the west coast of the United States, spending a portion of the second season on a boat. When the show returns for the back half of its second season, the action will shift to Mexico as the main cast is scattered to the winds.

And you can get a look at what to expect by watching the trailer below.

making of kubo and the two strings

The magic of stop-motion animation is that it still conjures a “How the hell did they do that?” reaction. I’ve enjoyed my fair share of films from Pixar, Disney Animation, and DreamWorks Animation, but the filmmaking process on CG-animated films doesn’t fill me with awe and wonder. At the end of the day, most modern animation is all about talented people sitting around computers and watching files render for hours on end. The end result can be impressive, but it doesn’t exactly light a fire under my imagination.

So bless Laika, the production company that has spent the past decade making stop-motion movies that dazzle the senses while telling offbeat and unique stories that push the boundaries of the medium. And as much as I have enjoyed their finished work, I often find myself enjoying behind-the-scenes looks at their process even more. This new featurette on the making of Kubo and the Two Strings kind of blows my mind.

UPDATE: Warner Bros. has also released the first poster for Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, which we have added to the post below.

UPDATE 2: We have now added the new poster for Kong: Skull Island the poster line-up.

The Warner Bros. Comic-Con 2016 panel isn’t set to begin until tomorrow, but that hasn’t stopped them from getting things started a little early. The studio has revealed new posters for two of the more promising films on their schedule: The LEGO Batman Movie, which spins Will Arnett’s hilarious take on the Dark Knight from The LEGO Movie into his own solo adventure, and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which examines J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world across the Atlantic and nearly a century in the past.

Wonder Woman Movie Poster

The Warner Bros. Pictures panel at Comic-Con isn’t happening until Saturday morning into the afternoon, but that doesn’t mean the studio still doesn’t have some reveals they can dish out beforehand. Today the studio unveiled the first official teaser poster for Wonder Woman, the superhero’s first solo big screen adventure following her debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year. Even though we don’t see much of Gal Gadot‘s face in the poster, it does shine a light on her costume and weapon of choice.

Sausage Party Trailer

Let’s get this out of the way right now. If you’re already on board for the raunchy, R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, then you probably shouldn’t watch the new red band trailer that was just released. However, if you’re the kind of person that likes to watch all the trailers, then we can’t stop you from watching this latest tease that reveals much more about what happens after Frank the hot dog (voiced by Seth Rogen) learns what happens to food after it goes to the “great beyond” outside of the grocery store.

Iron Fist teaser trailer

The centerpiece of Marvel TV’s Comic-Con panel this year was Luke Cage, but they found a few minutes to squeeze in a couple of their other upcoming shows. The event closed out with the very first footage from Iron Fist, Netflix’s fourth Marvel superhero movie — and the last one before their four flagship heroes team up for The Defenders. Watch the Iron Fist Comic-Con teaser below.  Read More »

the defenders teaser

Who said you need something as silly as footage featuring actors and such to put together a trailer? The first teaser trailer for The Defenders was revealed at Marvel and Netflix‘s Comic-Con panel earlier today, giving all of the superhero junkies in the crowd their first taste of the miniseries that will see Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage team up. But it’s just a tiny taste: the show won’t even arrive for another year at the earliest and we know this because it was also announced that the series will premiere sometime in 2017.
