Director David Lowery is probably doing something right with his upcoming remake of Pete’s Dragon because I’m not a fan of the 1977 original in the slightest but I fully intend to see the new version in its opening weekend. Maybe my soft spot for tales of isolated youngsters finding families is showing, or maybe I’m just a sucker for dragons, but everything we’ve seen from this movie looks charming and sweet and the right shade of adventurous.
Two new clips from the film have arrived online and they haven’t changed my mind. This looks like it could be one of 2016’s better family movies.

Star Wars Celebration will be in full swing tomorrow, and we’ll have coverage straight from the convention in London with all the latest updates on the future of the Star Wars franchise (hopefully some of our predictions come true). But before the news starts rolling in, there’s a little treat for fans who are curious about what the future of Star Wars Rebels has to offer.
On the latest installment of The Star Wars Show, the first Star Wars Rebels season 3 clip debuted, and with it comes the reveal of a whole new look for the Jedi apprentice Ezra Bridger, as well as some new weapons too. Watch the clip after the jump. Read More »
In show business, pretty much any publicity is good publicity. And in the case of the marketing for Sausage Party, it looks like Sony Pictures is making some weird choices in their efforts to promote the R-rated animated comedy from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg. We’ve seen red band trailers, a Walt Disney inspired promo and an Independence Day PSA, but this latest video promoting the movie is the weirdest as it sees costumed character versions of Frank the hot dog and Brenda with the good buns appearing on a morning talk show.

Now that 2009’s Star Trek re-introduced the classic Enterprise crew and 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness did everything in its power to wreck them, Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond has a bold new task before it: introducing new characters and allowing them to stand out amidst a cast of familiar faces and iconic names. We’ll hopefully get a memorable new adversary in Idris Elba‘s Krall and as this new clip from the film seems to indicate, Sofia Boutella‘s Jaylah certainly appears to be a unique addition to the ensemble.

The summer of sequels is coming to an end later this month with Star Trek Beyond and Jason Bourne arriving late this month. However, we could probably call Suicide Squad as much of a sequel as it is a spin-off to start a new franchise, so maybe it’s coming to an end at the beginning of August. Anyway, closing out July will be the return of Matt Damon as the covert operative with the worst memory ever, and three new Jason Bourne clips give us a taste of what’s in store for the Treadstone assassin this time.

In under a couple weeks, the premiere of Star Trek Beyond will be happening at San Diego Comic-Con. We’ll be there at the convention, complete with a reaction to the latest sequel in the rebooted film franchise based on Gene Roddenberry’s classic TV series, which will also be celebrating its 50th anniversary there as well.
Leading up to the release of the film in a couple weeks, a new Star Trek Beyond TV spot has surfaced with some new footage, including more shots of the Enterprise getting torn apart, and a nice little moment between our Kirk and Spock as well. Watch it below. Read More »
Disney’s last remake, The Jungle Book, made close to a billion dollars. Audiences keep turning out to see their live-action reimaginings, and maybe partly because they’re improving in quality. Following up some of the studio’s previous efforts, like Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent, both Cinderella and The Jungle Book surpassed some’s expectations. Not everybody pegged them to be, creatively and financially, as successful as they are. Going into David Lowery‘s (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) loose remake of Pete’s Dragon, perhaps some of those skeptics will have higher expectations for this tale of friendship.
Below, watch the first Pete’s Dragon clip.

This weekend, the embargo will lift on reviews of Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters. Starting Sunday at 1pm ET/10am PT, the first reactions to the film will be unleashed online and we’ll see if this movie has really been worth all the fuss it has garnered on the web.
As you wait for our own reaction to the film when the embargo breaks, you can check out some new Ghostbusters clips that have surfaced online, and these paint a much better picture of the less slapstick oriented comedy. They won’t completely change anyone’s mind, but they at least offer hope that there’s not as much silliness as the trailers have indicated.
