In what has essentially become a more deadly, less entertaining version of National Treasure, the adaptations of Dan Brown‘s book series following symbologist Robert Langdon continues this fall with Inferno. Back in the lead role is Tom Hanks, but this time his character has a little bit of a problem: he’s lost part of his memory.
A new international Inferno trailer finally lays out this important plot detail after all the previous teases of the movie left it out. Thankfully, despite this handicap, Langdon still has all those years he spent in school to help him decipher codes and puzzles created for him to stop a plague, but there are some key pieces of information he seems to have lost after an accident.

Update: A few hours ago, I reached out to writer/director Christopher McQuarrie, which, admittedly, I should’ve done in the first place. McQuarrie firmly denied the rumor that he’s supervising the reshoots:
If there are any reshoots on Rogue One, I’m not supervising them. For any outlet to say so is not only wrong, it’s irresponsible. Gareth Edwards is a talented filmmaker who deserves the benefit of the doubt. Making a film – let alone a Star Wars chapter – is hard enough without the internet trying to deliberately downgrade one’s years of hard work. Who does that even serve? Let him make his movie in peace.
Reporting on reshoots or additional photography is one thing, but this false rumor regarding McQuarrie was dismissive of Edwards’ work, which was what Christopher McQuarrie took issue with. Reporting that Edwards required supervision wasn’t fair to him, McQuarrie, or anyone else involved in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Here’s the original story as follows:
A few days ago, it was reported that Disney and Lucasfilm aren’t too keen on the dark tone of Gareth Edwards‘ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Apparently Disney believes the tone is too far removed from the original series and what director J.J. Abrams established with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so the studio ordered reshoots. The last story regarding the reshoots said that they’d take place in June, but new details have emerged suggesting that the reshoots will take up to six weeks and that writer/director Christopher McQuarrie is now heavily involved in the production.
Below, get more Rogue One reshoots details, which you should all take with a grain of salt.

In Collide, Casey (Nicholas Hoult) must revisit his dark past to save the one he loves. That set up is very familiar, but Eran Creevy is a director capable of transcending tropes. Creevy’s sophomore effort as a filmmaker, Welcome to the Punch, is a story of hero and foe uniting, a potentially trite set up that makes for a refreshingly streamlined film with a reliance on practical action. His follow-up, Collide, which he co-wrote with F. Scott Frazier (xXx: The Return of Xander Cage), looks like another lean action-thriller from the director.
Below, watch the Collide trailer.

Update: The book preview images turned out to be an unintentional leak, and we were asked by Disney to remove the images from the site as the leaked information contained on them. As the pages were not final, Disney is claiming the information is not completely accurate. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Tom Hanks can currently be seen onscreen in Tom Tykwer’s A Hologram for the King — not that anyone would know, considering the total lack of marketing or buzz surrounding that movie. But Sony is taking pains to ensure Hanks’ next movie will not be so completely overlooked. The studio has dropped the first action-packed trailer for Inferno, which sees Hanks reprising his role from The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons as symbologist Robert Langdon.
This time, the good professor wakes up in Florence with a seriously disturbing case of amnesia. With the help of Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), he finds himself in a race against time to stop a deadly plague meant to “solve” the world’s overpopulation problem. Dante’s Inferno is also involved, somehow, hence the title. Watch the Inferno teaser trailer below. Read More »

There are no shortage of monsters on the big screen this year, whether they be mutants or ghosts or dragons or other mythical creatures. But not all monsters are out to terrorize people. Some of them appear because they’ve been summoned by sad little boys desperately in need. In Juan Antonio Bayona‘s A Monster Calls, Conor O’Malley (Lewis MacDougall) struggles with bullies at school and his mother’s illness at home. At night he’s visited by a monster in the form of a towering tree (Liam Neeson).
Although A Monster Calls has elements of fantasy and adventure, the real core of the story is Conor’s attempts to cope with the kind of outsized emotions that even adults are ill-equipped to handle: love, loss, and grief. In other words, this beast of a tale looks more likely to break your heart than to make you scream. Watch the latest A Monster Calls teaser trailer below.

After the pure excitement from the debut of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer died down, people started picking apart the trailer frame by frame (and that includes us). One of the more popular theories about what we saw in the trailer was that Jyn Erso, the lead rebel character played by Felicity Jones, might be the mother of our new favorite future Jedi, Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
There weren’t really any clear hints that this theory could be true beyond the fact that Jyn Erso was white, brunette, had a British accent, had a similar background to Rey, and shared some common facial features. Plus, Jyn could easily have a child sometime between A New Hope and The Force Awakens who could have grown up to be the stranded Jakku orphan. That’s not exactly the strongest evidence, but the theory gained traction and fans thought it made sense.
Unfortunately, Daisy Ridley has just put out that fire by debunking the theory about Rey’s mother in Star Wars. Read More »
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has been flying under the radar, waiting for everyone to fully exhaust themselves on Star Wars: The Force Awakens before revealing itself. And oh boy, has it revealed itself. The first trailer is here and it’s a doozy, filled with all kinds of incredible imagery, promising characters, and, for the lack of a more elegant phrase, really cool stuff. And you know what that means – it’s time for a frame-by-frame trailer breakdown.
One word of warning: this article will dive into various internet rumors that have circulated this project for the past year. Some may be true. Some may not. I recommend bringing a pinch of salt along for this particular journey. If you want to know nothing about the film, you should probably turn around now.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened up a whole new chapter of everyone’s favorite sci-fi saga last year, but the next new Star Wars movie actually takes us back a few decades.
