Starting today, if you visit Disney theme parks in Florida and California, you’ll get a chance to see 17-minutes of footage from Marvel Studios’ upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. A lucky few have already been able to see about 9 minutes of GOTG footage, and the verdict so far is awesome! If you’re looking forward to GOTG and are counting the days until August 1, you are going to be very pleased with that news. And if you’re one of those types that can’t wait to see the movie, there’s plenty of talk online as to what those 9 minutes contain. Spoilers follow, so if you want to stay fresh, I might advise you to overt your eyes now. (more…)

Barney & Gang Blow Up Some Stuff in ‘Expendables 3′ Trailer

The_Expendables_3_22

We’ve been treated to so much goodness this summer already that we forgot about the all important concluding chapter of the pivotal Expendables trilogy. Chock a block full of Sylvester Stallone’s buddies, The Expandables 3 promises to be the rootinest, tootinest, shooinest, explodiest Expendables of them all with the returning old guns, some more veterans joining the fray, and a group of newbie recruits. From the looks of it, this three-quel promises nothing less than an entire neighborhood being destroyed in the midst of all it’s action. And apparently, Jason Statham and Wesley Snipes cement their bromance with a game of knives. That’s sweet. (more…)

New ‘Trans4mers: Age of Extinction’ International Trailer Here to Remind You That Mark Wahlberg Has Definitely Found a Transformer

- 06-13-14Film Posted by Jacob Knight

Wahlberg

The childlike wonder with which Mark Wahlberg delivers the declaration “GUYS, I THINK WE JUST FOUND A TRANSFORMER!” will go down in the annals of history as maybe one of the best line readings EVER. Despite having hated all of Michael Bay’s previous Transformers motion pictures, my ticket for Terry Hoytes v. Robots is 100% sold (fuck Batman v. Superman – this is the really real cinematic showdown). Now there’s an international trailer (complete with Chinese (?) subtitles) to sell the remaining few of you who weren’t already down with this clash of titans. (more…)

‘Leprechaun: Origins’ Trailer Delivers the Sub-Platinum Dunes Goods

- 06-09-14Film Posted by Jacob Knight

LUCKYCHARMS

Horror remakes aren’t new new by any means. Between Screen Gems’ beat-for-beat “reboots” and Platinum Dunes’ gritty “re-imaginings”, the past ten years have seen nearly every marquee title and horror icon reinvented by modern producers and directors. Getting in on the decade old fad is WWE Studios, who have cast their tiniest superstar*, Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl, as the titular keeper of Lucky Charms in Leprechaun: Origins. (more…)

New ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ TV Spot Continues to Sell the “Fun” Factor

- 06-05-14Comics, Film Posted by Jacob Knight

GuardiansTVSpot

I take a lot of shots at Marvel for what I believe to be a neutering (or flat out execution) of their more creative directorial choices, but Guardians of the Galaxy may be the film that completely flies in the face of my criticisms. James Gunn seems to have delivered a product that bears his distinct fingerprint — a weird slice of sci-fi with an “off-beat” sense of humor all its own. Today, a new TV spot continues to showcase the lighthearted, eye-popping “fun” his MCU picture (hopefully) is going for, with a climactic shot of psychadelia featuring star Chris Pratt that truly has me intrigued on a sheer visual level.

Get Your Creep On for the First Full Trailer for ‘The Strain’

- 06-04-14TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Looks like Guillermo del Toro‘s return to vampire adventures (remember Blade II, arguably the best of the Blades) is going for the jugular, both literally and figuratively. The Strain premieres next month, but below you can get your first, long look at the series and what del Toro and Co. have in store. Let’s just say that this may be the vampire show you’ve been waiting, or rather it’s the vampire show you’ve been waiting for if your ideal bloodsucker is more Bram Stoker than Stephanie Meyer (or Charlaine Harris) for that matter.

2014 has been kind of a dud for cinema as a whole, but one movie I definitely would place in my Top 10 (were the year ending tomorrow) is Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Brimming with great performances and kick-ass action set pieces, The Winter Solider delivered everything I wanted in a comic book film. Now details on the blu-ray have been finally released and it looks like this disc (just like most other Marvel home video releases) is jam-packed with awesome sounding bonus features. (more…)

Japanese Trailer for ‘Dawn of Planet of the Apes’ Fuels the Hype

Who would have guessed that three years ago we’d be eager for more Planet of the Apes movies? Yes, Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a tremendous success both critically and commercially, which means that the next film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes from director Matt Reeves is highly anticipated. It’s about a month and a half till the film hits theaters, but if your one of those overly-eager types, there’s a new Japanese trailer for Dawn below. If you saw the latest American trailer, it has a lot of the same footage but there’s a bit more focus on the action. It looks like Man versus Ape will take on a whole new meaning this summer….

New ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Trailer Shoots All Sorts of Laser Beams

JupiterAscending1

After the staggering scope of Cloud Atlas, you’d think that the Wachowskis would be scaling back their massive sci-fi ambitions a bit (especially since that movie didn’t exactly set the box office on fire). Yet Jupiter Ascending, their latest bit of insane-looking spectacle, seems to be just as heady and weird, fitting easily into the singular body of work they’ve created for themselves since The Matrix in 1999. Today, a third trailer for the film gives us a glimpse of the action contained within their latest opus and it looks as if the Wachowskis aren’t putting away their “pew pew” guns away any time soon.
