Victoria and Abdul trailer

Has there been an actress who’s played more members of English royalty or upper class society than Dame Judi Dench? She has to be the first call casting directors make if they’re looking for someone to play a role like that, and over the course of her long career, she’ve proven adept at allowing bits of humanity to shine through the authoritative figures she often plays.

Now she’s suiting up as England’s Queen Victoria for a new film called Victoria & Abdul, in which she forms an unconventional alliance with an Indian servant played by Ali Fazal. Check out the trailer and poster, and learn why this is strangely familiar territory for Dench below.

the mummy clip

Earlier this week, Universal threw down the gauntlet. Their new classic monsters cinematic universe was rechristened Dark Universe and next month’s The Mummy will officially be followed by Bride of Frankenstein in 2019. They’re going all-in on a new franchise built around iconic characters like Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula, the Invisible Man, the Wolf Man, and more.

There’s only one hiccup: the first movie in the Dark Universe hasn’t even opened yet and no one has any idea how audiences will react. We’ll have to wait a few weeks to see how things work out for everyone, but Universal has officially moved into marketing overdrive with The Mummy, as a new clip, a new featurette, and a new poster have arrived to remind people of this movie’s existence.

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 »

Brigsby Bear

One of the standout movies from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival was an indie comedy called Brigsby Bear. The film is led by Saturday Night Live cast member Kyle Mooney, who stars as a twentysomething young man named James Pope who has spent his life growing up in a bunker, raised by his parents and watching a kids TV show known as Brigsby Bear, the only form of entertainment available to him.

However, James has his life thrown into upheaval when authorities raid the bunker and he learns that his parents are actually two strangers who kidnapped him as a baby. Struggling to adapt to the real world that he’s been isolated from his whole life, he takes solace in tapes of the TV show that he’s collected over the years, and it just might be the best way for him to cope with his stolen life. That might sound pretty serious, but this is undoubtedly a comedy, albeit one with a touching emotional core that’s all about the power of storytelling.

Now the first teaser poster has arrived, give us a new look at Kyle Mooney and his beloved childhood TV pal, Brigsby Bear. If you like 1980s style portraits that used to be taken at the mall, you’ll love this poster. Read More »

Paul McCartney in Pirates of the Caribbean

We’ve known since last year that Pirates of the Caribbean was bringing another legendary rock star into the high seas franchise after having Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards play Jack Sparrow’s father previously. This time, it was the British imported band The Beatles having one of their members turned into a pirate, and now we get to see what he looks like.

Paul McCartney took to Twitter this weekend to reveal a first look at his character in the form of a character poster for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. If you were looking forward to Paul McCartney wearing eyeliner, you will not be disappointed.

baby driver poster

The funny thing about this new Baby Driver poster is that, technically, it represents everything we hate about modern movie poster designs: it’s all giant floating heads hovering over a city skyline. However, there’s one key difference and it means everything. This poster is hand-illustrated. Suddenly, the go-to choice for hacky Photoshopped posters looks stunning. This should be a new rule – marketing departments are only allowed to make floating head movie posters if they hire a talented artist to bring it to life. The walls of our multiplexes will thank you.

Anyway, you can check out the new Baby Driver poster below.

Transformers: The Last Knight Poster - Bumblebee WWII Mode

Yesterday, a new Transformers: The Last Knight TV spot revealed the Autobots’ secret history of fighting the Nazi’s during World War II. With 14 Transformers movies in development, it seems like the plan is to intertwine their story with that of the human race. Michael Bay’s new film explores how the King Arthur story combines with the Transformers mythology, and the full movie seems delve further into faux WWII history, a plot point that was criticized during production.

Now, a new Transformers: The Last Knight poster reveals Bumblebee’s WWII mode.

Transformers The Last Knight TV Spot

Hot on the heels of a new Transformers: The Last Knight clip that debuted over the weekend, a new TV spot for the sequel has arrived that gives us a clue to how this sequel will expand the mythology of the Transformers. The previous sequel, Age of Extinction, already fit Dinobots into preshistoric times, and now The Last Knight will show us how Transformers fit into human history, from medieval Europe to feudal Japan.

A new Transformers The Last Knight TV spot introduces us to the “secret history” of Transformers by showing us a bunch of vintage photos and relics from the past revealing that their relationship with humans spans centuries. Watch it below. Read More »

Transformers The Last Knight Clip

This summer brings the next installment of the Transformers franchise, which might finally be the last time that Michael Bay gets behind the camera to roll out the Autobots on the big screen (unless a spin-off down the road tickles his fancy). That means the director isn’t pulling any punches, as if he did before, and a new clip from Transformers: The Last Knight gives us an introduction to two new characters, one human and one Aubobot, as they meet Mark Wahlberg and Bumblebee for the first time.

In addition to the new clip from the film, you can check out a new poster for the sequel. But we don’t recommend checking out a goofy clip that shows Optimus Prime trying to learn a British accent from a dialect coach for no good reason at all.

Returning to the Blade Runner series that helped cement his legacy as one of Hollywood’s most reliable action stars must have been a walk in the park for Harrison Ford. Maybe too much of a walk in the park, if these new Blade Runner 2049 posters are anything to go by.

Two new posters for Denis Villeneueve‘s sequel to the Ridley Scott sci-fi classic were released today, one featuring franchise newcomer Ryan Gosling,  who plays a hotshot blade runner Officer K, and Ford, who returns as former blade runner Rick Deckard.
