Ever since the first teaser trailer for Kong: Skull Island debuted at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, the buzz about the action adventure reboot of the classic 1933 movie monster has been fairly non-existent. There was a little peak of excitement when a poster popped up at New York Comic-Con with some ties to the 2014 reboot of Godzilla, but then things quieted down again. However, we’re going to hear Kong roar again soon enough.
A new trailer for Kong: Skull Island was recently classified, and it should be arriving next week with the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (both are Warner Bros. movies). But in the meantime, a new photo from the movie finally gives us our first good look at the new King Kong.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets‘ presentation at San Diego Comic-Con went great. Hall H may not have been full and many in attendance weren’t familiar with the property — a French comic book series written by Pierre Christin and illustrated by Jean-Claude Mézières — but the concept art and clips raised our expectations for Luc Besson‘s sci-fi adventure. The Fifth Element director is possibly cooking up something big, weird, and exuberant, and you can now get a taste of what he’s been dreaming about making for years.
Below, watch the first Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets trailer.

Last weekend at Comic-Con, the hype centered around the likes of the first trailer for Power Rangers, the teaser trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2, the first trailer for Marvel’s Iron Fist series, and news of Sigourney Weaver being the villain for The Defenders. But one cool little tidbit flew under the radar until after the dust had settled.
Kong: Skull Island gave attendees of San Diego Comic-Con their first look at the classic monster reboot from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer) with a teaser trailer, and now a poster handed out to some lucky folks at New York Comic-Con teases the release of the giant ape a little more.

The sci-fi thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane has been in theaters for nearly a month now, and if you haven’t seen the movie, you’re missing out on one of the most riveting, suspenseful flicks of the decade. A big part of what makes the movie so captivating is that it keeps you guessing the whole way through. You never really know what’s happening or whom to trust until the very end of the movie. Which is why some new marketing materials from overseas are a bit frustrating.
The international marketing campaign for 10 Cloverfield Lane apparently doesn’t care about keeping the mystery intact and somewhat misleads the audience as far as the film’s story is concerned. A new trailer and poster for the film’s forthcoming release in Thailand completely ruins the 10 Cloverfield Lane ending. Find out how after the jump, but obviously, beware of spoilers. Read More »

Two months ago, it was revealed Dan Trachtenberg‘s directorial debut was a “spiritual” sequel to Cloverfield. The audience I saw 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi with were left both confused and excited by the trailer‘s title card. The question all along — well, actually just for the past two months — has been: how much of a sequel is this movie? Now we know. Kind of.
Please note that spoilers are encouraged in the comments section for this post. If you have not seen 10 Cloverfield Lane, we encourage you to return once you have.
