Netflix has become a new hub for sci-fi thrillers, and it looks like its latest film is one to watch out for. Tau is a brutal, horror-tinged thriller starring Gary Oldman as an AI house that terrorizes its inhabitants in a horrifying game of cat and mouse. And while the Oscar winner doesn’t appear on screen himself, his voice is chilling enough.

Timmy C is back, baby. After a stellar 2017 with a memorable appearance in Lady Bird and his breakout star-making role in Call Me By Your Name, Oscar-nominee Timothee Chalamet is about to hit the big screen once again. In the romantic thriller Hot Summer Nights, he stars opposite Maika Monroe (The Guest, Independence Day: Resurgence) as a teenager who becomes a drug dealer during a sweaty summer in Cape Cod in the early 1990s.

Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.
Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.

Bokeh is built around a captivating, albeit familiar, concept: what if you woke up one day and you were seemingly the last person on the planet? And what if you were on vacation at the time of this dramatic event, leaving you alone (perhaps forever) in a place that is wholly unfamiliar to you? It’s not clear where the film goes beyond that, but the trailer is certainly intriguing enough to make you wonder.

When Independence Day hit theaters in 1996, it brought the spectacle of global destruction, exciting action, some decent laughs, and an ensemble of memorable characters with nary a huge movie star in sight. Twenty years later, Independence Day: Resurgence attempts to deliver all that again. But despite a plot point out of left field that shifts the sequel away from a simple retread of the original and toward an absolute bonkers, universe-expanding set-up for a sequel, this follow-up falls flat and lacks any of the heart, charm, efficiency and exhilaration that makes the first one entertaining to this day.

With just over a month until the aliens come back to finish the job in Independence Day: Resurgence, a new extended trailer gives us our longest look at the blockbuster sequel yet. A bunch of new footage combined with what we’ve seen in the previous trailers gives us our best glimpse yet at the story, characters and pure destruction awaiting us this summer. However, I will say if you’re already on board with seeing this movie, don’t watch this trailer, because it shows a little too much.

We’re still about a month and a half away from seeing what happens when the aliens who attacked us 20 years ago in Independence Day regroup and come back to finish the job. As we’ve seen in viral news reports and the trailers for Independence Day: Resurgence released this year, we’ve already rebuilt, and we’ve even utilized alien technology to advance our weapons and society, including a global initiative that founded Earth Space Defense, which includes a military base on the moon.
Now another viral video has surfaced in the form of a recruitment video for Earth Space Defense with William Fichtner asking you to be all you can be…in space. We also get to hear part of a speech that President Lanford (Sela Ward) gives in the movie In addition, you can actually go enlist in ESD and play a few mini games to unlock some new footage from the film. Some of them even provide hints as to what story details we may find in the sequel. Watch the Independence Day Resurgence viral video after the jump. Read More »

James Cameron has been talking about a film adaptation of the manga Battle Angel Alita for a long, long time, with the science fiction action film at one point competing with Avatar to be his next project. Alas, Avatar got made first and Mr. Cameron decided to spend the rest of his life exploring every last nook and cranny on Pandora, which freed up the project for another filmmaker. Enter Robert Rodriguez, who signed on to make the film last year, with Cameron remaining on board as a producer.
Now that a less-preoccupied director is at the helm, Alita: Battle Angel (the new title for the film) actually looks like it could cease being a thing that Cameron occasionally mentions in-between Avatar updates and start being a thing that actually exists. They’re looking at lead actresses and everything!

Even though there are plenty of stars from the original Independence Day returning for this summer’s sequel Independence Day: Resurgence, there’s a whole new generation of characters who will have to step up and fight just as their parents did in the first movie.
Maika Monroe (It Follows) plays the daughter of President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) while Jessie Usher (Survivor’s Remorse) plays the son of the late Steven Hiller (Will Smith) and Jasmine (Vivica A. Fox). We had a chance to ask them about what it’s like to step into the world of a movie that came out before both stars were old enough to be in kindergarten. It sounds like each of them will get their time in the action spotlight, and Monroe might even has her own “Get away from her, you bitch” moment in the movie.
