The Darkest Minds trailer

After directing Kung Fu Panda 2 and 3, filmmaker Jennifer Yuh Nelson is making the jump to live-action with The Darkest Minds, an adaptation of a YA novel about kids who develop super powers and strike back against their oppressive captors. 20th Century Fox has just released a new trailer, which concentrates more on the love story between Ruby (Amandla Stenberg) and Liam (Harris Dickinson), two of the most powerful mutants – uh, I mean, super-powered teenagers – of the revolution.

The Package trailer

When I walked out of Universal’s teen comedy Blockers earlier this year, it seemed clear that actress Geraldine Viswanathan had a bright future. She was one of the funniest performers in a film full of funny people, so I’m glad to already see her popping up in another movie in 2018.

This one is called The Package, a Netflix teen comedy about a group of friends who go camping in the woods during spring break. But they soon realize that they need to save their idiot friend, who has accidentally cut off his own dick. Yep, all of a sudden that title makes sense. Watch The Package trailer below. Read More »

sierra burgess is a loser trailer

Looks like Barb finally got her justice.

After stealing the show in Stranger Things season 1 and becoming a bonafide meme soon after, Shannon Purser is finally stepping into a lead role in Netflix’s latest romantic-comedy film, Sierra Burgess is a Loser. And like the rest of the streaming giant’s pleasantly surprising slate of hip teen and young adult rom-coms, this movie looks charming as hell.

Summer of 84 trailer

You may not recognize the name RKSS, but the filmmaking collective comprised of François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell made some waves with their futuristic feature debut Turbo Kid, which was a cult favorite on the indie circuit a few years ago. Now they’re back with a new film called Summer of ’84 that takes a deep dive into the nostalgia of the 1980s.

The premise is simple: a group of teenage boys ride bicycles through idyllic suburbia while trying to figure out if one of their neighbors is a serial killer. A new trailer has just arrived, and you can check it out below.

the hate u give trailer

The Hate U Give trailer starts off like a fairly ordinary teen movie: Starr Carter (Amandla Stenberg) is a high school student who likes playing basketball with her rich, white prep school friends during the week, and partying with her friends from the poor, mostly black, neighborhood on the weekends. She likes hip-hop music and joking with her friends in the car.

But then things take a turn when she witnesses her childhood best friend killed by a police officer. The shooting sets off a domino effect that forces Starr to grapple with her place between her two different worlds, and wrestle with the injustice of the world.

13 Reasons Why season 3

The first season of Netflix’s teen-centric drama 13 Reasons Why cut through the Peak TV clutter and got people talking, but when season 2 debuted late last month, there wasn’t nearly the same amount of buzz around the show. Most of the reviews pointed out that the show had already extended itself too far beyond its initial premise with its second season, but Netflix, cackling in the face of logic and reason, has officially announced that 13 Reasons Why season 3 is coming to the streaming service next year.

13 Reasons Why season 2 reviews

Netflix famously doesn’t release viewership numbers for its individual shows or movies, but it’s safe to say that 13 Reasons Why made a big splash when it debuted on the streaming service last year. The show earned high praise from critics, courted controversy for its depiction of rape and suicide, and seemed to be all anyone could talk about for a while after its release.

Despite leaving some lingering unanswered questions, it seemed as if the series could wrap up after one season. But it’s coming back for a season two later this week, and early reviews from critics suggest it should have quit while it was ahead. Read More »
