Christopher Nolan loves playing with time. Films like Inception and Dunkirk are both based around a ticking-clock timeline, and Memento runs in reverse order. And now he might be going all-in with a time travel movie. Maybe. After a theater-only teaser, the first Tenet trailer has arrived online, and as is usually the case with a Nolan movie, it’s mysterious as hell. But based on the enigmatic footage on display, it really looks like Nolan has made himself a time travel movie. Unless he hasn’t. Let’s take a closer look with a Tenet trailer breakdown.

We were blessed with the first official Wonder Woman 1984 trailer this weekend, and it instantly reminded us of how much we loved Patty Jenkins‘ sincere and aspirational vision of the Princess of Themyscira. Gal Gadot returns as Wonder Woman, now a longtime citizen of Earth who has been living amongst and saving humans for nearly 70 years. But the colorful ’80s don’t quite inspire the same excitement in her, and Diana finds herself pining for her first and last love: Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). But to her surprise, Steve suddenly comes back to life, and Diana must make sense of his return while dealing with two new villains, the ambitious businessman Maxwell Lord (Pedro Pascal) and the powerful Cheetah (Kristen Wiig).
Let’s dive into our Wonder Woman 1984 trailer breakdown.

Naturally, there were plenty of interesting details for us to pluck out and note, including a bunch of Easter eggs. Read More »
Disney is keeping a tight lid on all things The Mandalorian, the highly anticipated Star Wars series set to debut on Disney+ in two weeks.

Last night, the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer debuted (and tickets went on sale a couple hours earlier at a record-breaking pace, even though they weren’t supposed to be available until after the trailer arrived), and it’s all anyone could talk about online afterwards. A plethora of new footage was unleashed last night, and while it doesn’t really give us any details about the actual story at the center of this last chapter of the Skywalker saga, there are plenty of interesting details to pick up on. So let’s dig into them with our extensive Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker trailer breakdown. Read More »
The Birds of Prey trailer has dropped, and it’s absolutely fantabulous. Margot Robbie reprises her role as Harley Quinn after she stole the show in 2016’s Suicide Squad. Now she’s emancipated from that abysmal movie and her toxic relationship with the Joker in Birds of Prey.
With a new girl gang by her side and a host of colorful, much more comfortable costumes, Harley Quinn is ready to take Gotham by storm. But she and fellow female vigilantes Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), and Cassandra Cain (Ella Jay Basco) first must face one of the city’s most formidable crime lords, Black Mask (Ewan McGregor).

This morning, the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker footage that played exclusively for The D23 Expo crowd on Saturday was released online. Taking a cue from the marketing campaign for Avengers: Endgame, half of the new sneak peek is a montage of footage from the previous films in the series before we get to see just under a minute of new footage from the final movie in the Skywalker saga. But damn, that new footage packs a punch, and we’re about to take a deep dive into it.

The first full-length trailer for HBO’s Watchmen premiered during Comic-Con and we’ve been exploring every frame, looking for Easter eggs and hints about what the show’s mysterious plot might entail. Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ twelve-issue Watchmen series is arguably the greatest comic book story ever told. The collected edition is the only graphic novel that made it onto Time magazine’s list of the 100 best novels since 1923. Since Zack Snyder’s film adaptation hit theaters ten years ago, DC Comics has begun revisiting the world of Watchmen: first with the Before Watchmen line of titles, and more recently with the Doomsday Clock miniseries.
Like Doomsday Clock, showrunner Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen is venturing into “After Watchmen” territory. The show takes place in the same world some years after the original storyline, and judging from the trailer, it will include a fair number of connections and callbacks to the comics. Below, we’ll dive into all of those and more with our Watchmen trailer breakdown.
