While DC Comics fans are patiently waiting to see what Ben Affleck can bring to the big screen with his first outing as director, co-writer and star of a new solo Batman movie, this spring will bring the Dark Knight to theaters in a much different way.
The LEGO Batman Movie brings back the building block version of the Caped Crusader (voiced by Will Arnett) that debuted in The LEGO Movie a little while back, but this time all of his comic book counterparts are on the scene too, including Michael Cera as Robin, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred and Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl. Now two new The LEGO Batman Movie TV spots show that Batman has some trouble working with partners. Watch them below! Read More »

Perhaps no superhero has as famous a rogues gallery as Batman, who seems to attract baddies by the bucketful. (It’s almost like patrolling alleyways dressed as a bat isn’t the most effective way for a billionaire to fight crime.) So now that the tiny plastic version of Batman is getting his own spinoff, The Lego Batman Movie, it’s only natural that his tiny plastic archnemeses are also coming along for the ride. The new Lego Batman Movie extended TV spot introduces a whole bunch of them, including the Joker, Bane, King Shark, Scarecrow, and so, so many more. Watch it below. Read More »
It’s almost time for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The early buzz on the movie hit the web over the weekend once the world premiere of the movie in Los Angeles was over, and full reviews will start hitting the web on December 13th. In the meantime, if you’re still soaking up as much Rogue One footage as you can, we have a batch of new videos for you to check out.
After the jump, check out a new Rogue One IMAX TV spot, a couple of clips that debuted when the cast of the film appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live before the weekend, and two featurettes going behind the scenes of the Star Wars spin-off. Watch all those videos after the jump! Read More »
Legion is a new show from FX that features ties to the X-Men universe, but more importantly, it’s the latest show from Fargo creator, Noah Hawley. The series stars Dan Stevens (The Guest) as David Haller, son of Professor Charles Xavier in the comics. Whether the series spends much time on their connection, we’ll have to wait and see, but Hawley has said before it’ll likely be acknowledged. Based on the footage we’ve seen so far, though, this series doesn’t need any obvious connections to the X-Men universe to get us interested.
Below, watch the Legion promos.

If you’re like us, there’s a good chance you’re feeling a bit groggy this morning after staying up late to snag tickets to the opening weekend of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. You don’t need another TV spot to tell you if you should see this movie, because you’ve already committed your hard-earned cash to it. But maybe you’d like to know a bit more about what, exactly, it is that you’ve bought.
A new Rogue One TV spot offers another taste of the next entry in the franchise. Which, despite being billed as a spinoff and featuring a largely unfamiliar cast of characters, boasts plenty of connections to the original Star Wars movies. Like the villains. We’ve known for some time that Darth Vader would make an appearance in the film, but the newest promo teases the return of another classic baddie as well. Click through to watch the latest Rogue One TV spot. Read More »

We are less than a month away from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The final trailer has already come and gone, but the featurettes and TV spots keep on coming.

Check out the Rogue One extended TV spot below. Read More »
Next month brings another anticipated Star Wars movie to the big screen, but as every fan knows, this one will be a little more different. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story marks the first spin-off from the primary Star Wars saga storyline, and while The Clone Wars brought an animated version of the Star Wars universe to life on the big screen awhile back, this is the first live-action movie that isn’t a milestone episode in the long-running franchise.
To keep the hype train rolling along, a new Rogue One TV spot has debuted with some snippets of new footage to hold us over until that sneak preview hits ABC around Thanksgiving. In addition, two new banners have cropped up from the United Kingdom featuring our Rebel heroes and those poor marksman known as Stormtroopers charging at each other on the beaches of Scarif.

We’re about a couple weeks away from seeing how the wizarding world expands in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first spin-off in a new series of films that takes place before the events of the Harry Potter franchise. There’s a lot riding on this franchise starter, but Warner Bros. Pictures seems supremely confident in it with four sequels already planned, including one that will bring Johnny Depp into the fray in a pivotal role.
To keep the hype machine chugging along, the magic wands of the new key characters from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them have been revealed. In addition, a batch of new TV spots show off a little bit of new footage from the spin-off. Read More »

There are several reasons I’m looking forward to Passengers, a film that I listed amongst my most anticipated movies of 2016 and broke into the top 10 on our most anticipated movies of the fall season list. The first reason is that Jon Spaihts‘ screenplay has been garnering acclaim since 2007, leading me to keep an eye on this film as it almost became a Keanu Reeves vehicle. The second reason is that the premise is so intriguing: a romance between a man and a woman prematurely awakened from their hibernation on a 90-year journey to a colony on a distant planet. And once the film was cast, there became a third reason: there are few modern screen couples that sound as instantly appealing as Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.
The first TV spot for the film has arrived and it touches on everything that makes this movie look so darn nifty. Big spaceship sets! Expensive science fiction action! Smoldering shots of the two leads staring into each other’s eyes!

Next week, you’ll get to see how Marvel and director Scott Derrickson pulled off Doctor Strange. The character is a very different flavor of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The origin story shares obvious similarities to their past films, but in tone and execution, Doctor Strange is a slightly different, trippier, and sometimes more dramatic comic book movie. The wild visuals alone help separate Scott Derrickson’s film from the herd a little, and a new upside down TV spot uses some of the film’s grander, action-heavier shots to sell audiences on Marvel’s latest and weirdest.
Below, watch the upside down Doctor Strange upside down TV spot.
