sonic the hedgehog trailer

It’s amazing how fast one trailer can turn our opinions around. Six months after Paramount Pictures put Sonic the Hedgehog on hold to do a last-minute redesign of its lead character, the studio has dropped a new trailer with an infinitely less terrifying version of the speedster.

community movie

Community always played the long game with its jokes, but there’s one joke that it was never able to make good on. After the throwaway joke of “Six seasons and a movie!” became a rallying cry for the twice-cancelled comedy, fans have long wished for the feature film that would reunite the misfit study group and fulfill that mantra. It’s an idea that creator Dan Harmon has played with, and which the stars have supported, though it seems less likely as we get further away from Community‘s cult-show heyday. But four years after Community wrapped up its six-season run, we’re getting rumblings about a Community movie once again.

Rick and Morty Season 4 Premiere Review

After a long wait that felt as excruciating as existence does for a Mr. Meeseeks, Rick and Morty is finally back.

The Knight Before Christmas trailer

Maybe Vanessa Hudgens accidentally signed her soul away in a contract with Netflix that requires her to star in at least one cheesy Christmas movie per year. Or maybe we’ve got ourselves a new Queen of Christmas who just wants to spend her holidays frolicking with handsome foreign men, one of which may be displaced in time. Whatever the case, more power to her. As the aforementioned time-displaced British knight says in Hudgens’ new Netflix Christmas movie The Knight Before Christmas, maybe she is a witch.

The Cincinnati native released his first Netflix special, Completely Normal, back in 2014, and in the five years since, his skills as a storyteller have only sharpened.

Segura can also be seen in the new horror movie, Countdown, which is produced by director Sean Anders.
