The wait is almost over. In nine days, audiences will see Vin Diesel return to one of his earliest star-making roles, Xander Cage. It’s been over 14 years since Diesel last played the tatted and beefed up super spy in xXx. He’s not the only one returning to this franchise, though.
Below, watch the new xXx: Return of Xander Cage TV spot (Spoilers follow).

A new adventure featuring the classic movie monster King Kong is just a couple months away. Kings of Summer director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is bringing the massive ape to the big screen in his largest form yet in Kong: Skull Island, but he’s not the only monster that a group of explorers have to contend with.
Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell and more all encounter an endless array of giant creatures, from creepy spiders to gargantuan lizards and much more. Now a new Kong Skull Island trailer makes it hard to tell whether King Kong or these other monsters will be a larger threat to our human protagonists.

Over 14 years after the release of the original xXx, is Xander Cage a character audiences remain interested in? We’ll soon find out when Vin Diesel returns to the role next month in the D.J. Caruso-directed sequel, which co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, Ruby Rose, Tony Jaa, Toni Collette, and Donnie Yen. So far we’ve seen Cage pull off plenty of wonderfully ridiculous feats in the trailers for the film, and the newest xXx: Return of Xander Cage clip gets, as fans probably hope for, ridiculous real fast.

Earlier this week, the first trailer for The Fate of the Furious delivered some pretty insane developments for the Fast and the Furious franchise by turning Vin Diesel‘s character Dom against the crew he calls family. However, that’s still not the craziest thing that Vin Diesel will be doing on the big screen next year.
Let’s not forget that xXx: Return of Xander Cage is coming to theaters next month. This is a movie where the first trailer featured Vin Diesel jumping over a speeding car and riding a motorcycle in skis through the ocean. And now a short new trailer features him doing something else ridiculous: breaking a gun over his knee.

Fans of Pixar Animation’s family superhero movie The Incredibles have been waiting over a decade for a sequel to get off the ground. Many have been clamoring for The Incredibles 2 ever since the end of the first movie teased another outing for the super-powered family, albeit in a tongue-in-cheek fashion, and now the movie is finally in production.
After development of The Incredibles 2 was finally confirmed back in 2014, Samuel L. Jackson has revealed by way of a post on Instagram that he’s back in the recording booth to record lines as the cool superhero Frozone. Check out The Incredibles 2 photo tease after the jump. Read More »
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.

“Kick some ass, get the girl, try to look dope while you’re doing it.” That’s the advice Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) gives spy / extreme sports enthusiast (Vin Diesel) in the new trailer for xXx: Return of Xander Cage, and it’s really the appeal of this entire movie in a nutshell. Sometimes, you just want to watch a movie about a guy who kicks some ass, gets the girl, and tries to look dope while he’s doing it. Whether he succeeds at looking dope, of course, is the question, and that’s up for you to judge. Watch the xXx 3 trailer below.

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. Upon first inspection, it’s just an innocent teaser poster with a grid map of the mysterious Skull Island. But when you take a black light to it, some interesting secrets are revealed. Read More »

On paper, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children sounds like a perfect combination of talent, material, and timing. It’s essentially an X-Men movie, in keeping with the current craze for superhero films, but one with a fanciful gothic vibe. It is directed by the master of fanciful gothic vibes, Tim Burton — who knows a thing or two about superheroes and big-budget blockbusters already. It’s led by the living Tim Burton drawings Eva Green and Asa Butterfield. Oh, and it’s based on a bestselling novel by Ransom Riggs.
In short, it has all the makings of a big hit that brings some much-needed quirkiness back to the multiplex. So why, then, does it all feel so… uninspired? So familiar? So not-very-peculiar? Read More »
After Phil Coulson and the agency helped assemble The Avengers, an ABC television series spin-off launched to tell the ongoing adventures of the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. But S.H.I.E.L.D wasn’t long for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hydra had infiltrated the group, and the agency was brought down by the events seen in Captain America: Winter Soldier. While the team has continued as a small unofficial faction in the tv series, they have not been seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since. The Marvel movie and television groups have been divided, and even those involved in the shows don’t have much hope for future crossovers. It’s almost like the Marvel universe has been split into two entirely separate cinematic and television dimensions that not even Doctor Strange can merge.
But there may be hope for SHIELD to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At least if you believe Samuel L Jackson, who plays former SHIELD director Nick Fury. Could a SHIELD MCU return actually happen?
