Dark Phoenix Clip

This week, the X-Men franchise as we know it is coming to an end. Dark Phoenix will be the final installment of the comic book movie series that started all the way back in 2000. While the franchise was essentially rebooted in 2011 with X-Men: First Class, it ended up getting a deeper connection to the original trilogy of movies thanks to X-Men: Days of Future Past, making the original X-Men and the new, younger mutants intertwined in a confusing timeline of superhero spectacle.

With one last push to get audiences to witness the end of the X-Men on the big screen, a new Dark Phoenix clip gives us ample tension between Professor Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and his surrogate sister Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) after their space mission to help NASA astronauts almost took a deadly turn. Plus, a new featurette leans heavy on nostalgia by having the cast of the movie reflect on their experience with the original X-Men movies and their work on the more recent films. Read More »

it chapter two trailer breakdown

The Losers’ Club is back, and so is Pennywise the Clown in It Chapter Two. The long-awaited trailer for the horror sequel just arrived, and it does not disappoint. Rather than a traditional trailer, we get an extended (although clearly trimmed-down) scene, followed by a few quick, exciting, creepy shots. The marketing department doesn’t have to give away too much – they know the hype is real, and that audiences will happily return to the haunted town of Derry, Maine. Still, there’s plenty to latch onto here, and that’s where our It Chapter Two trailer breakdown comes in handy.

it chapter 2 trailer viral marketing

Our patience is about to be rewarded: the It Chapter 2 trailer is dropping this week. The long-awaited return of Pennywise and the Losers’ Club got some simple yet clever viral marketing, as the cast of the upcoming horror sequel took to Instagram to share some seemingly innocuous photos featuring hidden (and not-so-hidden) red balloons.

it chapter 2 first look

Behold! The first official look at It Chapter 2! Featuring James McAvoy as…James McAvoy. Okay, the actor is actually playing the adult version of Bill Denbrough, but when you boil this pic down, it’s pretty much James McAvoy, rocking a plaid shirt. And possibly on a bike. A silver bike, if you will. McAvoy is one of the many impressive cast members playing the adult Losers’ Club in the upcoming horror sequel, and while this isn’t a mind-blowing image, we’ll take what we can get. See the It Chapter 2 first look below.

Dark Phoenix Trailer

Now that 20th Century Fox has been bought by Disney, the Marvel Comics mutants known as the X-Men are back home at Marvel Studios. But before that, the studio will finish the initial series nearly 20 years later with the final installment of the franchise: Dark Phoenix. The only problem is that it’s retelling a story that we’ve already heard before, and much like the recent reboot of Hellboy, it doesn’t seem to be doing much to improve it in any way. Watch the new Dark Phoenix trailer below. Read More »
