Crisis on Earth-X

With Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow all situated at The CW, it’s now customary to have all of the superheroes check into each others’ shows for a major crossover event. Last season was the first time Supergirl was brought into the mix, and this season, we’ll see new iterations of the DC Comics superheroes getting in on the action, this time as super-powered villains.

The CW and Warner Bros. Television have announced this season’s four-part crossover will be titled Crisis on Earth-X, and they’ve even commissioned legendary comic artist Phil Jimenez (Infinite Crisis) to create a comic book cover teasing the epic TV event coming this November. Find out details on the Crisis on Earth-X crossover below. Read More »

Stranger Things Posters - The Goonies Poster

We’ve still got some time until the second season of Stranger Things starts streaming on Netflix just before Halloween. The brand new trailer that debuted at Comic-Con was good enough to hold us over for awhile, but we’ll take whatever we can get to whet our appetite.

That’s why we’re glad the official Stranger Things Twitter account is partaking in a promotional endeavor called #StrangerThursdays, where they rewatch each episode of the first season every Thursday (leading up to the second season premiere) and live tweet with cheeky posts, behind the scenes details about specific scenes and more. The coolest part of this lead-up is they kick off an episode by revealing a new Stranger Things poster inspired by one of the 1980s movies that influenced the show.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be updating this post with the newest Stranger Things posters, but you can see which ones have been revealed below, as well as the original posters that inspired them. Read More »

Considering the cinematic landscape right now, we knew it wouldn’t be long before Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander went from making small films like The Danish Girl and Ex Machina to signing on to a big budget franchise-starter, and that’s exactly what happened when she boarded Tomb Raider, Warner Bros.’ upcoming movie adaptation of the 2013 video game reboot. Now the first trailer for the film has arrived, with Vikander playing a young version of gaming icon Lara Croft. Grab your bow and arrow, sharpen your ice pick, and check out the new trailer below.

Thor Ragnarok Posters

To go along with our extensive set visit report for Thor: Ragnarok today, Marvel Studios also sent over some bright, colorful new character posters featuring the cast of the cosmic comic book sequel.

Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Jeff Goldblum and (kinda) Mark Ruffalo all get their own posters, each with an explosion of colored powder surrounding them. Even though character posters may be excessive marketing, at least these look fairly cool.

Check out the Thor Ragnarok posters below. Read More »

It poster 4

Pennywise the clown is an iconic image of horror. Starting next week, if director Andy Muschietti‘s adaptation of Stephen King‘s It is as scary as the early buzz indicates, the shape-shifting clown will continue to live on in nightmares (and hopefully in a sequel). The movie is on track to be a big hit at the box office, so the character could become more popular than ever. Before Pennywise terrorizes the children of Derry, Maine, you can find the clown all over the place in Gallery1988 this weekend in Los Angeles, where a can’t-miss It themed exhibit is taking place.

Below, check out some terrific It posters from Gallery1988, Mondo, and more.

mother trailer

The newest trailer for Darren Aronofsky‘s horror movie mother! debuted tonight, and it looks like he’s putting another protagonist through the psychological gauntlet.
