In the near future, nothing is more addictive than the past.
Reminiscence, the first feature film from Westworld co-creator Lisa Joy, takes place in a near future in which some of Miami has flooded due to rising water levels, and its residents rely on nostalgia as a means of escape. Technology exists that can let people fully immerse themselves in their previous experiences, reliving memories not only visually, but through all of their senses. With that as the backdrop, Hugh Jackman plays a “private investigator of the mind” (hell yes) who meets an alluring femme fatale, played by Mission: Impossible actress Rebecca Ferguson, and quickly becomes obsessed with her.
Despite the film’s impressive production design, sleek visual style, and mind-related plot mechanics, Reminiscence is not related to Christopher Nolan’s Inception. (We think.) But take a look at the first full trailer and see what Joy was able to craft during her first time in the director’s chair.

Talk about an ill-timed movie. On the tail of some of the most devastating hurricanes the United States has seen in decades, Geostorm is coming in to…regale you with an inspiring story of Gerard Butler fighting the weather? Unfortunately, it looks like he’s on the losing side in the new Geostorm trailer, which features all manner of CGI earthquakes, hail storms, tsunamis, and hurricanes. Because that’s what people to go the movies for, to see big budget recreations of disasters that are all too real.

The jury’s still out on whether AMC’s Into the Badlands looks cool or cheesy (actually, it kind of seems like it’s both), but the one thing we can be sure of is that it won’t skimp on the action. Last night, the network released a nearly four-minute clip showing off the martial arts prowess of its lead character Sunny, a mysterious warrior played by Daniel Wu. Be warned that there’s some pretty noisy violence on display here. Watch the Into the Badlands clip after the jump. Read More »

Do you prefer Westerns or martial arts actioners? Gritty dramas or medieval fantasies? The antebellum South or steampunk dystopias? Whatever your genre preference, you’ll probably find a bit of it in Into the Badlands, AMC’s completely batshit-looking new drama.
Loosely based on the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West, Into the Badlands stars Daniel Wu as Sunny, a skilled fighter who takes a mysterious young boy (played by the majestically named Aramis Knight) under his wing in a land ruled by feudal barons.

Director Duncan Jones has been coming to Comic Con with Warcraft for three years now. With the movie finally set to arrive in theaters just under a year from now, Comic-Con finally got a first look at some official footage from the video game adaptation, and it’s definitely something to talk about.
The footage on display has simultaneously some of the most beautiful visual effects footage I’ve ever seen, along with some of the most niche, heavy-fantasy, somewhat confusing story elements in recent memory. As someone who hasn’t ever dove into the world of Warcraft, I’ll do my best to break down what we saw in Hall H.

One of AMC’s fall 2015 shows is Into the Badlands, a series starring Daniel Wu in a story that loosely adapts the ages-old Chinese story Journey to the West.
