The Knight Before Christmas trailer

Maybe Vanessa Hudgens accidentally signed her soul away in a contract with Netflix that requires her to star in at least one cheesy Christmas movie per year. Or maybe we’ve got ourselves a new Queen of Christmas who just wants to spend her holidays frolicking with handsome foreign men, one of which may be displaced in time. Whatever the case, more power to her. As the aforementioned time-displaced British knight says in Hudgens’ new Netflix Christmas movie The Knight Before Christmas, maybe she is a witch. Watch The Knight Before Christmas trailer below.

Polar trailer

Here’s a movie for you: Mads Mikkelsen, with a mustache and an eye-patch, goes around shooting people. Oh, and at one point, he uses a gun controlled by laser-pointer fingers. What more do you need? All of that and more happens in the Polar trailer. The film, from Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund (who also has Lords of Chaos coming out this year), looks heavily inspired by John Wick, and I’m not complaining. Watch the trailer below.

the christmas switch trailer

Vanessa Hudgens and…Vanessa Hudgens star in The Princess Switcha cheesy Christmas movie that promises to dethrone The Christmas Prince as your new Netflix holiday obsession.

Because look at all the ingredients in this sugary-sweet movie! Two Vanessa Hudgens: check. Two blandly handsome love interests, one of whom happens to be a pseudo-British prince: check. Parent Trap-style shenanigans that are sure to end up with at least one of the bland-hot love interests catching Vanessa Hudgens in their arms: check. It’s a tooth-aching concoction of a movie that I want to shove down my face immediately. Merry Christmas, indeed.

second act trailer

Just when you thought the rom-com was dead and buried in the ground, Jennifer Lopez swoops in to help revitalize it. The queen of rom-coms is back with Second Act, which is not a sequel to Sister Act, despite appearances. In what feels like a spiritual sequel to her other iconic rom-com Maid in Manhattan, Lopez stars as a working-class woman who scams her way to the top of a cushy corporate job.

powerless promo

After a superhero leaves a city in ruins after some epic brawl, rarely do you hear them offering to help pick up the pieces. They save the day and get to go home, leaving behind plenty of arduous work behind for the average joes. Heroes and villains’ tendencies to historical landmarks and put people in harm’s way keep folks like Emily (Vanessa Hudgens), Del (Alan Tudyk), and Teddy (Danny Pudi) busy in NBC’s new comedy, set in its version of the DC universe. Expect easter eggs galore.

Below, watch the Powerless promo.

powerless review

Every superhero show or movie has them: dozens or hundreds of anonymous extras milling about in the backgrounds of all those CG-heavy, city-destroying third-act climaxes, looking alternatively terrified and grateful. Every once in a while, some of them even get to speak – to testify against Superman in Congress or to corner Iron Man in an elevator. But NBC’s Powerless is the first time these nameless nobodies truly get to take center stage. And as it turns out, they’ve got a pretty great story to tell.  Read More »

Powerless 1

Whenever superheroes and supervillains throw down, there’s going to be collateral damage. Sometimes there’s more, sometimes it’s less, but at best we’re talking about millions if not billions in property damage and countless ruined days for ordinary civilians unlucky enough to live in a superpowered universe. While the superheroes get to return to Asgard or hole up in their secret Batcaves or whatever it is they do, these folks are left to sweep up the dust. Now a new comedy promises to tell their stories.

NBC has given a series order to Powerless, a DC Comics comedy about an insurance claims adjuster (Vanessa Hudgens) who has had it with the crime-fighting superheroes messing up her daily commute. Geek favorites Danny Pudi and Alan Tudyk also star, along with Christina Kirk. The show itself won’t premiere for another several months, but the first photos have arrived to give you a little taste of this non-superhero superhero series.  Read More »

Ever notice how every single superhero movie seems to end in a massive battle that destroys an entire city? Ever wonder whose job it is to foot the bill and sort through the paperwork afterward? As it happens, NBC is developing a single-camera comedy about just those folks. Powerless follows a group of totally normal people who work in a totally normal insurance company, only they happen to exist in a world with DC superheroes — and all the inconveniences that suggests. (You try getting home in time for your kid’s birthday party when the subways are jammed yet again because some flying dude in a unitard decided he just had to smash an evil alien into the railway.) ‘

But what the characters of Powerless lack in superpowers, they make up for in geek cred. Powerless has just added Firefly‘s Alan Tudky and Community‘s Danny Pudi to the cast, along with Vanessa Hudgens and Christina Kirk (NBC’s A to Z). More on the Powerless cast, including character details, below.  Read More »
