Luke Cage doesn’t premiere on Netflix until the end of the month, but Marvel isn’t being shy with the new clips. The first few teases showed off Mike Colter as Power Man himself, with the unbreakable skinned superhero absorbing punishment, dishing out pain, and finding himself in need of some new clothes. The newest clip places the focus on one of the chief villains he’ll be battling during the show’s first season: Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, played by House of Cards and The Hunger Games series star Mahershala Ali.

It’s September, which means that our focus should be drifting away from comic book superheroes and toward the film festival circuit, where the movies we’ll be talking about for the next four or five months will be making their debuts and building their buzz. And while our own Angie Han is currently at the Toronto International Film Festival to bring you reviews of new films from the world’s most exciting and eclectic filmmakers, Netflix is doing an excellent job of diverting our attention from the arthouse to the streets of Harlem in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Yes, a new Luke Cage clip is here and yes, this show still looks really, really good.

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 »

Yesterday was Ghostbusters Day, and to celebrate the casts of both the 1984 classic and this year’s reboot came together on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
For some reason, the posting of the videos on YouTube pretend the arrival of the original Ghostbusters cast during an interview with the new Ghostbusters cast was some kind of surprise, even though we found out about it in advance. Anyway, the two casts get together to talk about the reboot and the legacy of the original Ghostbusters.
Plus, Bill Murray throws his full support behind the reboot and explains why he finally chose this project to come back to the Ghostbusters franchise. If you think that’s just because he’s shilling for the studio, he actually gives some very honest thoughts about the film that might quell some of the fears of naysayers out there.
Watch the highlights from the Ghostbusters Jimmy Kimmel Live episode below. Read More »

20th Century Fox is taking a two-pronged approach with the X-Men: Apocalypse marketing today, with two very different promo videos. On one end of the spectrum, we have a warm and fuzzy viral video that looks like something out of the ’80s, with Lana Condor‘s Jubilee inviting special folks to enroll at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. On the other, we’ve got a super-serious, super-grim clip featuring a pissed-off Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and the promise of death and destruction. Check out both after the jump. Read More »
The premiere of Game of Thrones season 6 is only a few weeks away, so the trick now is making sure we don’t get hit by a car or plummet from the roof of a skyscraper or accidentally drink a liter of Drano. As the show has taught us, the Many-Faced God eventually comes for us all, but hopefully he’ll wait until after this season is over to shuffle us off this mortal coil. I expect this season to prove lots of long-gestating theories. Don’t take that from me, Death. Seriously. Cool your jets.
While you dodge death at every turn, you can take some pleasure in a new clip from the first episode of the new season, for which HBO also revealed a title and a cheeky synopsis.

We’ll be running a full review of Daredevil season 2 very soon, but here’s the CliffNotes version for those who are curious: it’s very good and a significant improvement over the first season in many key areas. It also has its fair share of flaws (and odd deviations from the Marvel canon), but it’s easy to see the path ahead for the series. There actually seems to be a real plan this time around. And it’s paced relatively well!
One area where the new season consistently matches the first season is the action. This new batch of episodes has no shortage of broken limbs, smashed faces, battered torsos. Matt Murdock walks away from every fight bleeding and bruised and his opponents rarely walk away at all. For fans of well-choreographed fisticuffs, it’s good stuff. And of course, the best action scene from the season has made its way online so you can revisit it again.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
If you’re a child of the ’80s and ’90s, you undoubtedly know the theme song to the animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. It was a staple of Saturday morning cartoons, and for some fans, it’s the pinnacle of heroes in a half-shell entertainment. There’s been a lot of nostalgia for the old animated series on shirts, lunch boxes, hats and even new pricey action figures. And now they’re coming back to television, but in a slightly different form.
Nickelodeon’s TMNT animated series will be getting a visit from the retro animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in a new episode that crosses dimensions. What’s really cool is that the episode will also bring back the the original voice actors from the old series. Get more details on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover after the jump.

Sugar. Spice. And everything nice. These were the ingredients chosen to create the perfect little girl. But Professor Utonium accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction: CHEMICAL X. Thus The Powerpuff Girls were… reborn!
You can have your Fuller House and your Gilmore Girls revival, but personally, I’m way more excited about seeing the return of the pint-sized, animated superheroes known as the Powerpuff Girls. The animated series gets a bit of a reboot this April on Cartoon Network, but when you see the first footage from this new Powerpuff Girls series, you’ll see that not much has changed, and that’s a good thing. Check it out! Read More »
