Since Zootopia has been on home video for awhile, I hope you’ve taken the time to pause the movie during the scene where Duke Weaselton is selling bootleg copies of movies we all know and love, but with an animal twist that only Zootopia can offer. You’ll find titles like Wreck-It Rhino, Meowana and Pig Hero 6 in the pile of bootleg movies, showing us what the animal versions of those movies would be like in the thriving metropolis of anthropomorphic creatures.
Now Zootopia directors Rich Moore and Byron Howard, as well as screenwriter Jared Bush, have created parody posters for some of the Oscar nominees who will be vying for a golden man when the awards are passed on this Sunday, February 26. They include pun-tastic parodies of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, La La Land, Hell or High Water and more.

If you go to your local toy aisle, new Power Rangers merchandise is on shelves now. I’m not sure how well they’re selling when kids and their nostalgic parents haven’t seen the movie yet, but at least they’ll be there after the movie hits theaters on March 24. The most recent trailer promises a franchise along the lines of Transformers, even if the tone outside of all the action feels like it’s taking itself a little too seriously.
Anyway, the marketing is really starting to push the Power Rangers in their full power suits, not to mention their massive Zords, looking like cheap Dinobots with rainbow colors, which honestly isn’t much of a change from the original series. You’ll see what I mean in a new Power Rangers trailer that has emerged online, as well as a batch of new posters. Read More »

A few years ago, director James Mangold shared ten movies that inspired The Wolverine, his first outing in the X-Men universe. If nothing else, that list showcased Mangold as a man with great taste in classic and contemporary cinema. Few things make me happy quite like a filmmaker actively thinking about Black Narcissus and The French Connection while working on a major superhero movie.
So it’s appropriate that the new IMAX poster for Logan, Mangold’s second Wolverine movie and Hugh Jackman‘s swan song as the character, looks like it was torn from a movie theater wall circa 1973.

Kong: Skull Island arrives in one month, and we’ll get to see what Legendary Pictures has done with one of the most iconic movie monsters of all time. Kings of Summer director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is behind the camera, making a jump from indie to blockbuster in the same way that Colin Trevorrow did from Safety Not Guaranteed to Jurassic World. Can he deliver an action adventure worthy of the name King Kong? Some new TV spots give us more of what’s waiting for us next month.
Watch a couple new Kong Skull Island extended TV spots, and see a new poster, after the jump. Read More »

I hope someone has bought the marketing team working on Kong: Skull Island a nice fruit basket or a bottle of champagne because their work has been so weird and so wonderful. Those trailers are nothing short of nutty and the most recent poster deliberately riffed on Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, with King Kong standing in for Marlon Brando. Someone had to say “Hey, that sounds crazy enough to work” and that person deserves a big ol’ hug.
And the Kong: Skull Island art game continues to be on point with the wild new Japanese poster, which looks like it was produced in the ’60s and transmitted to 2017 by a time machine.

In just a couple months, Power Rangers gets an all-new adaptation, marking the first time the property has hit movie theaters without bringing one of the TV series iterations to the big screen. This is essentially a big screen reboot of the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers taking a whole new approach to the story of five teens tasked with protecting the world from evil.
The most recent trailer for Power Rangers finally showed the heroes all suited up for action, not to mention calling upon their Zords to take on a massive version of Goldar. Now a new poster features an even better look at the Zords driven by our heroes, as well as the Power Rangers themselves.
But perhaps even more interesting is that a Power Rangers script written by Chronicle scribe Max Landis (whose influence still feels present on what we’ll see next month) has made its way online. Find out where you can read the Max Landis Power Rangers script and see the new poster after the jump. Read More »
It seems crazy to think that Kong: Skull Island will be in theaters in just a little over a month. There doesn’t seem to be enough buzz about the movie just yet, but that will likely change as the release date gets closer. There’s a chance there could even be a Super Bowl spot to help spread the word.
In the meantime, a new Kong: Skull Island IMAX poster has been released that takes an obvious cue from Apocalypse Now, just like the first trailer for the King Kong reboot did. Plus, we finally have confirmation on how Kong Skull Island connects to Godzilla, the reboot of the King of Monsters from 2014. Read More »
Beauty and the Beast is getting closer and closer with the release just over a couple months away. A bunch of TV spots are hitting the small screen to remind everyone that it’s coming out, but with all the record-breaking trailer views the live-action remake of Disney’s animated classic has racked up, I think it’s safe to say everyone knows about it.
Disney loves to have as big of a crowd as possible though, so it should come as no surprise that they debuted a new Beauty and the Beast TV spot during the Golden Globes tonight. There’s a good amount of new footage for those looking to see every bit of Belle (Emma Watson) and The Beast (Dan Stevens, covered in visual effects) of this new spin on the classic tale, and we also have a new poster to check out as well.

Paramount has delayed Rings no fewer than four times. First it was supposed to open in fall 2015, then spring 2016, then fall 2016. Finally, it was pushed back all the way to February 3, 2017. And the studio would like to reassure you that that date is for real this time. Sure, they’ve done barely any marketing for it a month out from release. But there’s a new poster, and it’s got the release date right there and everything!
The first Rings poster is a pretty simple piece that lays out the rules of the franchise, just in case you’ve forgotten in the fourteen years since the first The Ring hit theaters. It also features Samara, because Paramount knows how much you’ve missed her. Check it out below. Read More »

As we’re all aware by now, Logan is Hugh Jackman‘s very last film as Wolverine — a role he’s been playing for a decade and a half now, starting with 2000’s X-Men. That fact adds an extra layer of poignancy to what already looks like a very bittersweet film, which in turn should make this movie even more of a must-see for fans. So the 20th Century Fox marketing team is leaning into it, hard, with a new Logan poster and a new Logan poster that literally show the sun setting on Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine. Check ’em out below. Read More »
