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. Gone are the tombstone teeth and the horrifyingly human traits that made the video game character look like a creepy mutant version of himself — the classic Sonic with his huge eyes and white gloves is speeding his way to the big screen. Get your first look at the way better redesign in the new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer.

Mere hours before The Mandalorian is set to make its debut on Disney+, Disney has released a new special look at the Star Wars live-action series. Anticipation is at an all-time high for The Mandalorian, and Disney has been playing it safe with the marketing thus far, showing thrilling action sequences and lots of ominous shots of Werner Herzog narrating, but revealing precious little about the plot of the space western series. The new The Mandalorian special look is no different, showing us footage we’ve seen before, but offering us the tiniest morsel of an extended scene in the cantina. Watch The Mandalorian special look below.

Despite making a triumphant return from dust in Avengers: Endgame, we haven’t seen much of Chris Pratt on the big screen lately. Sure, he voiced the lead character of Emmet in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, and he had a role in the sparsely seen western The Kid, but otherwise, Pratt has been laying pretty low as a leading man. But that changes next year with a new sci-fi thriller that also has the Parks and Recreation star executive producing for the first time.
About a year and a half ago, you might remember that Chris Pratt was announced to be starring in Ghost Draft, a sci-fi thriller that finds humanity fighting an alien invasion. But when it looks like humanity is on the ropes, they figure out a way to draft soldiers from the past to help fight the war. Now production is underway with an extensive ensemble cast, and the movie has a new name: The Tomorrow War. And with that new title also comes a first look photo. Read More »

Scooby-Doo is coming back to the big screen, but this time he’s getting his first computer animated feature film. This one will also be a full origin story for the friendship between Shaggy and Scooby-Doo, as well as Mystery Inc., too.
The first Scoob! trailer takes us all the way back to Shaggy’s childhood, when he meets a stray dog on the beach and shares a sandwich with him. After getting his new name, inspired by Scooby Snacks, the two become lifelong buddies and end up meeting Fred, Daphne, and Velma while trick-or-treating. But this movie isn’t just an adventure with the young version of Mystery Inc., because the gang actually has to go looking for Shaggy and Scooby-Doo when they end up somewhere rather surprising.

HBO’s Westworld series has already ingrained us in the futuristic corporate world with Delos Incorporated and their revolutionary approach to truly immersive experiences. Of course, things haven’t been going so well for the company since a serious malfunction at Westworld started to shake things up. The ramifications of those events are still being felt, and the third season will continue to tell that story. But there will be a new fictional company entering the fray.
As part of the recent Wired 25 tech event, a panel called “The Future of Data: The Promise and Peril” was sponsored by a company called Incite Inc. During the panel, a minute-long advertisement features Jefferson Mays as Liam Dempsey Sr. talking about the benefits of trusting in a tech company like Incite, which has “unprecedented computing abilities, analyzing data for life’s most unsolvable problems.” They tout being able to protect the climate while helping someone find a job. Surely there’s nothing more nefarious or worrisome happening behind the scenes, right?
