We’re coming down to the end of 2016, and even though we’ve been starting to look forward to the movies of 2017 since as early as this past summer, it’s about time we started to look back at the good stuff this year had to offer. We’ll each be bringing you our personal Top 10 Films of 2016 leading up to a cumulative Top 15 (just like last year), but before that, we’ve got something else to kick off our look back at 2016.
Leading up to every movie, even before a trailer arrives, there’s a movie poster. So it’s time to check out a countdown of the 25 Best Movie Posters of 2016. Which of this year’s one sheets made the cut? Find out after the jump. Read More »
Colin Trevorrow’s The Book Of Henry is a movie I’ve been curious about for some time. It’s an interesting choice to helm this small film after directing one of the biggest box office successes of all time. But the truth is, we don’t really know much about The Book of Henry. All we’ve been told is that its a drama about a single mother raising a child genius. What is the Jurassic World director cooking up at Focus Features? Hit the jump to see The Book of Henry poster, which gives us a first look at the plans.

Between the Fate of the Furious trailer revealing Vin Diesel’s Dom to be working against the rest of his family and the Transformers: The Last Knight trailer featuring a scene where Optimus Prime battles Bumblebee, we’re awfully close to a new trend: 2017 movies where beloved heroes break bad and turn against their team. The new poster for director Michael Bay‘s fifth Transformers movie doubles down on this concept, featuring the world’s most iconic robot-who-is-also-sometimes-a-car standing over the body (corpse?) of the second most iconic robot-who-is-also-sometimes-a-car.

UPDATE: A second teaser poster has been released and we’ve added it below.
How about we imagine a modern movie poster? Close you eyes. Now conjure up the proper poster shape. That’s the blank canvas upon which we will mentally photoshop our eye-catching motion picture advertisement. Think hard. What do we need? How about text calling attention to the director’s past work? That’s good. That’s standard. That’s normal. But try a little harder. How about…a guy standing with his back to the viewer, looking upon a scene of epic destruction? There we go! And how about a bunch of smoke and debris to ensure that there is no corner of this one-sheet left untouched by grime!
Now open your eyes. You have seen the poster for Christopher Nolan‘s Dunkirk.

Even though we got quite a lengthy teaser trailer for the latest big screen iteration of Power Rangers, we still haven’t seen the titular teenage superheroes in action on screen yet. So far only still images of the Power Rangers in their signature suits have been provided online, and we’ve seen even less of their massive robot companions known as Zords, but now we get a somewhat better glimpse at the latter.
A new Power Rangers poster teases the arrival of the Zords, however, they manage to show even less than the previous teaser posters revealed with each of the Rangers standing on their own vehicles. In addition, we’ve got a new photo of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa. Read More »

Mondo has always had a good eye for making pop culture posters that appeal to something primal in a specific fandom – their artists tap into imagery that remind us why we love something in the first place. And now, they’re coming for the ’90s kids.
The Austin-based art and collectibles company has officially announced their next gallery show, which will be based around Nickelodeon shows, touching on both the classic and recent entries in the network’s line-up.

After a false start with Dracula Untold, the Universal Monsters franchise is ready to get going for real with its first big release, The Mummy. Directed by Alex Kurtzman, the film stars Tom Cruise as the hero who gets mixed up in some kind of trouble involving an ancient, wronged, and very pissed-off princess (played by Star Trek Beyond‘s Sofia Boutella).
Today the first The Mummy poster has arrived, along with a little The Mummy teaser for the trailer arriving this weekend. See it all after the jump. Read More »

It only took 20+ years, but Martin Scorsese‘s Silence is finally coming to theaters next month. Ahead of the trailer’s premiere later this week, Paramount has unveiled the first Silence poster and a couple new Silence images.
Meanwhile, there’s a bit of bad news for another Scorsese project that’s been simmering for a long while. The Frank Sinatra musical biopic that he’s been developing on and off for the past several years is apparently dead, at least according to screenwriter Michael Chabon.
See the new Silence photos and get the latest on the Sinatra movie below. Read More »

Recently we’ve been learning a lot more about Bill Condon‘s Beauty and the Beast. For starters, the film will feature original songs by Oscar winner Alan Menken not heard in the Broadway Production of Beauty and the Beast or the 1994 Disney film. Speaking of the classic animated movie, the new poster for Condon’s remake pays tribute to it.
Below, check out the new live-action Beauty and the Beast poster.

Next month brings another anticipated Star Wars movie to the big screen, but as every fan knows, this one will be a little more different. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story marks the first spin-off from the primary Star Wars saga storyline, and while The Clone Wars brought an animated version of the Star Wars universe to life on the big screen awhile back, this is the first live-action movie that isn’t a milestone episode in the long-running franchise.
To keep the hype train rolling along, a new Rogue One TV spot has debuted with some snippets of new footage to hold us over until that sneak preview hits ABC around Thanksgiving. In addition, two new banners have cropped up from the United Kingdom featuring our Rebel heroes and those poor marksman known as Stormtroopers charging at each other on the beaches of Scarif.
