Live By Night Trailer

Next week brings the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and there are so many movies desperate to get promotion in front of the huge audience going to see the Harry Potter spin-off. And it seems Warner Bros. Pictures will be taking advantage of that by releasing a new trailer for Ben Affleck‘s latest directorial effort Live By Night.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Teaser Poster

Just recently, the first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was classified with a running time of 1 minute and 29 seconds. With Doctor Strange set to hit international markets next week, we’re likely to get this teaser trailer either later this week or early next week. But in the meantime, the first Guardians of the Galaxy 2 teaser poster has arrived.

Unlike the polished posters we’ve come to expect from Marvel Studios movies, this particular teaser poster looks more like an album cover straight out of the 1980s, and it has a rather cocky tagline as well. Check out the poster after the jump. Read More »

Live By Night Trailer - Ben Affleck

Not too long ago, we learned that Ben Affleck‘s long-awaited adaptation of Dennis Lehane‘s novel Live By Night may get an awards-qualifying release late this year before going wide in January. Now that appears to have been confirmed with the first trailer for the 1920s crime thriller making its way online. This looks like it has the potential to be Ben Affleck’s best movie yet.

Karl Urban

In J.J. Abrams‘ Star Trek films, Bones (Karl Urban) mostly interacts with Captain Kirk (Chris Pine). Now and then he’ll have a tense or fun side conversation with Spock (Zachary Quinto), but in the upcoming sequel, Star Trek Beyond, the two clearly have more to do together — which is a good thing, since Quinto and Urban are consistently reliable comedic relief in these films.

The new Star Trek Beyond clip also features Uhura (Zoe Saldana). Her words with Spock may qualify as a spoiler, but if you’re not particularly spoiler sensitive, then check out the latest look at director Justin Lin‘s film.

Star Trek Beyond Set Visit

Last Summer, I visited the set of Star Trek Beyond in Vancouver, Canada. Find out what I learned on set, including how over 50 new alien species were created for this film in honor of Trek’s 50th anniversary, how director Justin Lin has put an end to JJ Abrams’ “camera hand jobs” (yes, you just read that right) and much much more.

We know that the next trailer for Star Trek Beyond is set to arrive on May 20 and will be revealed as part of a larger “fan event” that will include a Q&A with the cast and director Justin Lin. After all, it’s Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary – this is the perfect excuse to go big. But since that date is still weeks away and you may very well be thirsty for anything and everything related to the next film in the greatest science fiction series of all time, you can pursue a new batch of photos that have shown up online.

nina trailer

One of these days, every single musician and singer of note will get a biopic. And in 2016, it’s Nina Simone‘s turn.

The trailer for the long-gestating Nina has arrived and it showcases everything you’ve come to expect from a traditional biopic, including a lead performer buried under latex and acting her butt off. We live in a post-Walk Hard world and every movie like this has to work doubly hard to be taken seriously, but the subject matter on display here looks like it could be fresh enough to overcome the usual biographical pitfalls. Maybe. Hopefully. It depends on how you feel about Simone’s family not liking this film very much.

avatar sequels

Avatar came out six years ago. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long, but that’s how long it’s been since director James Cameron‘s 3D fantasy film made almost $3 billion dollars. You can’t really dismiss a movie that made that much money as a fluke, but some wonder if the movie just hit at the right time. Is Pandora a world people really want to return to? Are audiences aching to go on three more adventures with Jake Scully (Sam Worthington)? The people who ask those questions are whom Cameron wants to prove wrong in 2017.

After the jump, read the director’s latest comments on the Avatar sequels.
