The LEGO Ninjago Movie Trailer

Everyone who enjoyed The LEGO Movie saw the animated building brick world become even bigger with The LEGO Batman Movie earlier this year. Now it will expand into a totally different arena with yet another LEGO branded adventure.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie takes one of the building brick company’s most popular toylines, one that already has its own animated series on TV, and brings the action to the big screen with a completely new story and an all-star comedy cast. A new trailer debuted during San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, and it has the same humor and creativity as the previous LEGO movies. Watch it below! Read More »

steven soderbergh iphone movie

Next month, after a four-year absence from filmmaking, it’s time to praise the heavens because Steven Soderbergh has another movie coming to theaters, Logan Lucky. It looks like we might not have to wait long for his follow-up to the new heist movie, either. Soderbergh has already shot another movie, titled Unsane, on an iPhone.

Below, learn more about the Steven Soderbergh iPhone movie.

Unlocked trailer 2

It’s been a long time since the original Bourne trilogy, and terrorism thrillers – even last year’s continuation of that franchise, Jason Bourne – don’t have quite the same appeal that they used to. I don’t know if it’s because we’re too far from the events of September 11, 2001, or if these movies can sometimes feel too fresh because we’re sadly never far enough from the latest devastating attack somewhere in the world, but a low-level B-movie about preventing a terrorist attack doesn’t feel like the norm anymore. And it feels especially weird when when a movie like that, in this case a film called Unlocked, is directed by an acclaimed documentary filmmaker like Michael Apted (the Up series).

Black Panther Comic-Con Panel

The Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con was, as expected, the geek equivalent of a rock concert. And Black Panther, which is set to arrive early next year, received a rockstar’s reception. In addition to a panel Q&A with director Ryan Coogler and members of the cast, the crowd was treated to a scene from the film and a brand new trailer (which we were told won’t be online for some time).

But that’s why we’re here. We’ve got you covered. Here’s what you need to know.

Thor Ragnarok Comic-Con Footage and Panel

Marvel Studios brought Thor back to San Diego Comic-Con for their big Hall H panel, and while you  probably already watched the new Thor: Ragnarok trailer, there’s still plenty more that we can tell you. Not only were some new details gleaned from the panel itself, but there were extended bits of footage shown before the trailer debuted as well.

The Avengers Infinity War footage

Note: The Avengers: Infinity War footage that played at Comic-Con (and brought down the house) was the same footage that we previously saw at D23. Because of that, we are bumping our old post, just in case you missed it the first time. In Hall H, in front of a crowd of 7,000 eager fans, this footage killed. We have also added additional details that we noticed on this second viewing.

The original post follows. Just mentally replace “D23” with “Comic-Con.”

***

As expected, the live-action films panel at the the 2017 D23 expo concluded with a first look at the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. This grand culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far promises to be an epic experience, one that brings the many (many, many) heroes of these movies together for their biggest battle yet. Naturally, the first footage from the film screened and we have a rundown of what you need to know.

captain marvel movie 1

The Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con 2017 couldn’t feature footage from Captain Marvel (because it hasn’t started filming yet), but it could reveal a number of tantalizing details about the Brie Larson-starring superhero movie due out in 2019. First, we learned that the rumors are true: Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury will play a role in the movie. Second, we learned something of a bombshell: the film will be a prequel, set long before the events of the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.

Thor Ragnarok Trailer

Now that we have Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming out of the way, we’re down to just one more release from Marvel Studios, and it has the chance of being the best one yet. Though the aforementioned additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe were satisfying in their own way, the next adventure featuring The Avengers’ own God of Thunder looks surprisingly good.

Thor: Ragnarok released its first trailer back in April, letting Led Zeppelin drive the exciting, colorful, cosmic adventure from Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows director Taika Waititi. Now a new Thor: Ragnarok trailer gives us an even better glimpse at the Marvel sequel, which looks to be the best film in Thor’s own franchise to date.
