There was a lot to love in the first season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones series, but one of things I loved most was Mike Colter‘s Luke Cage. We knew from the start that this soulful, sensitive, and dashing bartender (who also, you know, just so happens to have unbreakable skin) was going to be the star of his own series and would eventually unite with the rest of the Marvel Netflix stable of characters for a Defenders series, but Colter made a solo series for Luke feel like a priority in the midst of another character’s show. That’s something special.
With San Diego Comic-Con right around the corner, all things superhero are about to invade headlines with the force of a well-timed punch from Mr. Cage himself. So why don’t we kick off this week with a new Luke Cage poster that will be available to Comic-Con attendees later this week?

Star Wars Celebration is in full swing and the panel for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story took place today with Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Gwendoline Christie talking to the filmmakers and cast of the first standalone story in the galaxy far, far away.

Unless you’ve been living in total isolation for the past week, you’ve surely heard about Pokemon Go, the new mobile game that uses augmented reality technology to allow users to search the physical world for adorable little monsters that only exist through their smartphone cameras. While virtual reality has been the Next Big Thing in gaming for years now, Pokemon Go feels like the first step in a revolution. VR may still be huge, but AR has officially tapped into the public consciousness in a big way.
In other words, IFC Midnight couldn’t have picked a better window to begin marketing their new film Let’s Be Evil, which revolves around augmented reality. And creepy artificial intelligences. And creepier children. And what certainly looks like a body count. We’re pleased to premiere the official poster for director Martin Owen‘s new film, which you can check out below.

Remakes sometimes elicit knee-jerk irritation from moviegoers tired of seeing the same dreck over and over. But when done right, they’re not so bad and can even be kind of great. And maybe no one is doing them better right now than Disney. The studio has been on a tear lately, dishing up new versions of Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and more for audiences and critics to gobble up. (They had a rare stumble with Alice Through the Looking Glass, but hey, it happens to the best of us.) The next film from their animated library to get the live-action treatment is Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as the new Beauty and the new Beast.
The first Beauty and the Beast teaser hinted that the new film would be sticking with a traditional take on the fairy tale, and the first Beauty and the Beast poster suggests the same. Check out the first Beauty and the Beast poster below. Read More »

Character posters are usually an obligatory part of the marketing for any blockbuster. Most of the time they’re boring and unnecessary, but sometimes the marketing department actually puts some creative into their poster campaign and we get some character posters worth framing. Thankfully, that’s exactly what has happened with some new Suicide Squad character posters. There are actually two batches of character posters that have arrived online, and you’ll know which ones are worth talking about when you see them. Read More »

Neither critics nor audiences much cared for X-Men: Apocalypse, the eighth entry in 20th Century Fox’s long-running comic book franchise. It drew tepid reviews and flabby box office, and is generally regarded as a disappointment. But maybe the studio’s other big superpowered team-up, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, will have better luck.
Directed by Tim Burton and based on the bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs, the story concerns a young man (actual Tim Burton character Asa Butterfield) who stumbles across a hidden home for children with extraordinary abilities.
You know, kind of like the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters, only more British, more retro, and more Tim Burton-y. Or maybe that makes it more like Harry Potter‘s Hogwarts? In any case, it’s time to meet the residents. A batch of new Miss Peregrine character posters have just been revealed, and you can check them out after the jump. Read More »
