Michael Myers is back in a blood-soaked Halloween Kills teaser. The sequel was supposed to arrive in theaters in time for this Halloween season, but the coronavirus got in the way. Now, David Gordon Green‘s follow-up will hit theaters next October (hopefully). Until then, we have this intense, entertaining teaser that shows the Shape wrecking havoc all over Haddonfield while Laurie Strode and her daughter and granddaughter try to stop him. Watch the Halloween Kills teaser below.

Songbird made headlines for being the first film made during the COVID-19 outbreak in Los Angeles. Produced by Michael Bay, it was a production that ran into problems almost immediately with SAG-AFTRA issuing a “do not work” order to actors for the film. That order was eventually lifted, but later, another story broke accusing the film of not following COVID safety protocols. And now…it’s here. The first Songbird trailer has arrived to give us a glimpse of what we can expect and the results are…well…see for yourself.

Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge is a new virtual reality game for Oculus Quest that will allow fans to venture into the world of Batuu from Disney theme parks. By way of the game’s narrative, fans can also be transported to other places and times in the Star Wars galaxy when they hear tales from an alien bartender named Seezelslak (voiced by Bobby Moynihan). One of those stories will take us way back to the time of The High Republic, the setting for Lucasfilm’s new Star Wars publishing initiative that takes place 200 years before Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. You can get a sneak peek at what’s to come in the first trailer for this Tales from Galaxy’s Edge High Republic story. Read More »
In 2008, Indian author Aravind Adiga published The White Tiger, a searing, darkly comic account of the underbelly of Indian society and the horrifying lengths that one man would take to break out of its rigid class structure. It was an astounding debut novel, especially coming in the same year that the notoriously sentimental Slumdog Millionaire became an awards darling by painting a fairy tale picture of that same impoverished class of people. But “don’t believe for a second there’s a million-rupee game show you can win to get out of it,” the serving-class protagonist (Adarsh Gourav) of The White Tiger cheekily remarks in the recently released trailer, making a dig at the feel-good Danny Boyle film in Netflix’s feature adaptation of Adiga’s acclaimed novel. Watch The White Tiger trailer, which also stars Priyanka Chopra, who executive produces the film, below.

David Bowie passed away nearly five years ago after giving us a life full of incredible music, mesmerizing style, and endless inspiration. He’s a legend who deserves the ultimate biopic about his life and career. Unfortunately, the upcoming movie Stardust starring Johnny Flynn as the iconic recording artist doesn’t look like the kind of cinematic tribute that fans are waiting for.
The first Stardust trailer has arrived, and it looks like it’s desperately trying to be Bohemian Rhapsody, but with a much smaller window into David Bowie’s life and absolutely zero songs from The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, or any of his albums from over the years. Considering the movie seems to be leading to the creation of his famous persona, that feels like a problem. Read More »
The ever-prolific Alex Gibney has yet another documentary heading our way: Crazy, Not Insane. This HBO doc profiles psychiatrist Dr. Dorothy Otnow Lewis, who has devoted her career to studying serial killers and what makes them act the way they do. There’s a wealth of documentaries, and docuseries, devoted to serial killers, but so many of them tend to only focus on the crimes themselves rather than the root cause. Sure, it’s easy to shrug-off the actions of someone like Ted Bundy by saying he was just out of his mind, but Dr. Lewis’ work suggests otherwise. Watch the Crazy, Not Insane trailer below.

Sadly, there’s no Friday the 13th in October. Perhaps that’s why Universal decided to wait until November to release Freaky, their wild body swapping horror comedy starring Kathryn Newton and Vince Vaughn as a high school girl and serial killer who accidentally end up trapped in each other’s bodies. Watch the new Freaky trailer below for some (s)laughter. Read More »
I rolled my eyes hard when I first heard the news that 1980s/1990s staple Saved by the Bell was coming back with new episodes on Peacock. Did we really need another nostalgia-driven rehash of a show from another generation?
But after watching this new trailer, I’m surprised to find that I’ve warmed considerably to the concept. The reason? The trailer seems to indicate that the meta approach seen in the first teaser is not merely a couple of cute, winky jokes sprinkled throughout the series, but an actual exploration of early Saved by the Bell and its characters as seen from a more modern, inclusive perspective. Watch the new Saved by the Bell trailer below. Read More »
