The first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife brought the franchise back yet again, this time with a heavy dose of nostalgia in the vein of Super 8 and Stranger Things. One of the chief complaints about this first trailer is that it didn’t have any comedy, a trademark of the original franchise that hailed from bona fide comedians from the likes of Saturday Night Live, The Second City and other comedy institutions. But a slightly different international cut of the Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer does add a couple moments of humor, as well as a bit more proton pack action. Read More »
It’s Pope Season! Not only do we have The Two Popes arriving on Netflix this month, we also have The New Pope headed to HBO a month later. That’s enough popes for everyone, I think. The New Pope is the second season of The Young Pope, in which Jude Law wore sunglasess, smoked cigarettes, and also became the leader of the Catholic Church. This new season has a new pope (thus the title), played by John Malkovich. But Law’s pope isn’t out of the picture just yet. Watch The New Pope trailer below.

The first season of Miracle Workers focused on Daniel Radcliffe, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni as employees in heaven trying to stop God (Steve Buscemi) from destroying Earth. Now the show is returning for a second season, but since it was crafted as an anthology series, it’s going in a completely different direction and has absolutely nothing to do with the story from the first season. But not everything is different.
Miracle Workers: Dark Ages takes the same cast from the first season and turns them into medieval villagers just trying to get by in one of the most difficult and dark periods in human history. Needless to say, things are pretty bleak when people get excited to watch someone get killed in the middle of the village square. Watch the Miracle Workers: Dark Ages trailer for a glimpse.

Watch the final Antlers trailer below.

The Grudge is taking its hard “R” rating seriously. Sony has released a gnarly red band trailer for its reboot of The Grudge, which is directed by The Eyes of My Mother filmmaker Nicolas Pesce and stars an impressive cast including Andrea Riseborough, John Cho, and Betty Gilpin. But the star of this new red band trailer is none other than horror genre stalwart Lin Shaye, who has become a new-age scream queen in the past decade. Shaye, and of course, Cho’s naked torso, get quite a bit of screen time in the nightmarishly violent new red band trailer. Watch The Grudge trailer below.

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.
