the challenger movie

Here’s a film that’s bound to be a bit depressing. Michelle Williams, who can be seen later this week in Venom, has just landed the role of Christa McAuliffe in The Challenger, a movie based on the 1986 space shuttle disaster that shocked the world. McAuliffe was set to be the first teacher in space, but the shuttle exploded upon takeoff, killing all seven astronauts on board.

venom trailer

A new Venom trailer is here, and it has everything fans of the character could want: slime, tongues, and Tom Hardy talking to himself. The film is part of Sony’s Spider-Verse (or is it the Venom-Verse? Answer unclear), a series of films which aren’t connected to Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man films, like Homecoming and the upcoming Far From Home. Confused? Don’t worry! None of this matters. Watch the Venom trailer below!

all the money in the world clip

Ridley Scott is the consummate director.

It’s how he was able to rally together an eleventh-hour reshoot schedule to replace star Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer in All the Money in the World. It’s how he works non-stop despite being 80 years old, producing two movies and one TV show in the last year alone. And it’s how he got the entire cast of his historical thriller to gush about him in an exclusive new All The Money in the World clip from the film’s upcoming home video release.

I Feel Pretty Trailer

Comedian Amy Schumer made a huge splash on the big screen with Trainwreck back in 2015, and now she’s back with another comedy that might make some waves this summer.

I Feel Pretty follows Amy Schumer as an average woman who deals with some low self-esteem and insecurity in her everyday life. Whether it’s because of her figure or her hair, she just doesn’t have enough confidence in herself and feels inadequate day in and day out. But as we see in the I Feel Pretty trailer, that suddenly changes when a Soul Cycle accident leaves her looking at herself in a new light. Suddenly, she believes she is a knockout supermodel who can do anything, and it’s a total gamechanger for her. Read More »
