We last saw Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) almost six years ago in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, a fairly bloated, lifeless and forgettable sequel. At the time, though, audiences welcomed the return of Jack Sparrow. The sequel made over a billion dollars worldwide, making Depp’s last legit hit. Now, almost 14 years after first playing the character, the actor is back as the shifty pirate.

Director Gore Verbinski‘s last four films are gigantic popcorn movies. Rango, the Pirates of the Carribean sequels, and The Lone Ranger are enormous in scope. With A Cure for Wellness, the director is scaling things back a bit, sticking with mostly one location: one messed up, horrific, and beautifully designed spa.

While the Super Bowl may be mostly geared toward a male audience, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of women watching the big game today. Some might even be expecting a special glimpse at Fifty Shades Darker since the erotic, romantic thriller sequel arrives this week. And Lionsgate took full advantage of that with their latest tease for something that’s much different.
John Wick: Chapter 2 debuted a Super Bowl spot during the pre-game coverage today, and it starts off with a tease that feels like it could be introducing a Fifty Shades Darker spot. But then it quickly takes a turn with plenty of gunfire and some hard-hitting action, making it look like John Wick is taking just as much of a beating (albeit a completely different kind) as Dakota Johnson did from Christian Grey.

UPDATED: The extended Super Bowl spot that’s playing during the game tonight is now online. Watch it after the jump. Our original story follows below.
As has become customary with every blockbuster summer, there are plenty of sequels on the way. One of them will be Transformers: The Last Knight, the next chapter in the franchise based on the best-selling Hasbro toy property. This will be the first sequel that was developed as part of an extensive writers room planning the future of the Transformers franchise for the rest of the decade and beyond, and some new footage has just arrived.
The Super Bowl will viewed by millions who are right in the demographic that Paramount Pictures is hoping to get into theaters this summer for Transformers: The Last Knight, so it should come as no surprise that the studio will have a Super Bowl spot for the sequel playing during the game. For those who don’t give a damn about the game and don’t want to wait around for it, the Transformers The Last Knight Super Bowl spot has just been released online. Read More »
Next week we finally get the joy of watching The LEGO Batman Movie unfold brick by brick before our very eyes. Everything we’ve seen from this movie promises to be a fantastic spin-off of The LEGO Movie from a few years back, just with a bit of a flair that only The Dark Knight (as voiced by Will Arnett) can offer.
Leading up to the release of the movie, Warner Bros. Animation has been releasing some awesome marketing materials, like the behind the scenes featurette from within the world of LEGO Gotham City. Now we get one more video from the LEGO universe in the form of a segment inspired by MTV’s Cribs, featuring Bruce Wayne (who totally isn’t Batman) and Batman (who totally isn’t Bruce Wayne) giving us a tour of their mansion.

Rings‘ release date has been kicked around more times than a soccer ball. Okay, maybe not that many times, but four delays is telling. Originally scheduled to open in the fall of 2015, the sequel then got moved to spring 2016, and then it got bumped back again to the autumn of 2016. That last release date didn’t work out, either, so director F. Javier Guitérrez‘s horror film is finally coming out this Friday. Days before Rings hits theaters its heavily promoted plane sequence has made its way online.
Below, watch the first three minutes of Rings.

It’s been a rough voyage for Star Trek: Discovery, but cameras are now rolling on CBS’ grand return to the greatest science fiction series of all time, and I’m ready to start feeling optimistic. And if the goal of this new video, which showcases footage of sets, uniforms, and concept art from the show, was to get me unbearably and unreasonably pumped that another proper Star Trek series is on the way…mission accomplished.

At the heart of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a straightforward and sweet story: an animal lover and magizoologist, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne), comes to New York City, where a few of his misunderstood creatures get loose. Newt’s story often gets derailed by some uninteresting subplots, an underwhelming twist/piece of setup, and franchise thinking in David Yates‘ inconsistent film, which frequently goes from wonderous to frustrating. It wasn’t the grand, heartfelt reintroduction to the wizarding world of Harry Potter, but audiences and fans embraced the film and helped it make over $800 million worldwide. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a little while away from hitting home video, but a deleted scene featuring Newt and friends has already hit the web.

While some would prefer that entertainment and politics stay separated, we live in a world where they frequently intersect. This is even more true when it comes to looking at the genre of documentary films, and a new one that just premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival this past week is certainly going to stir up some heated discussions.
Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time hails from directors Ted Bourne, Mary Robertson and Banks Tarver, who assembled footage that was originally shot for the Showtime docu-series The Circus, but ended up being used for a feature length documentary film about the 2016 election. Specifically, this documentary focuses on how Donald Trump won by way of a chronicle of his campaign, from the primaries through the debates up until he was elected as the 45th President of the United States of America.
