‘Five Fingers For Marseilles’ Clip: Guns and Gorgeous Landscapes Dominate This South African ‘Western’

The western may have been born in Hollywood and built to tell tales of adventure in the untouched American landscape of the 19th century, but the genre has broadened its horizons over the years. Now, a western is more of a state of mind than a description of where a particular movie takes place. Cast in point: the new movie Five Fingers For Marseilles, which evokes strong western vibes despite taking place in modern South Africa. Michael … [Read more...]

‘Anna and the Apocalypse’ Trailer: A Zombie Comedy That is Also a Christmas Musical

Zombies and comedies go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Christmas and musicals go together like peppermint and, well, chocolate. But what happens when you take all of those seemingly disparate elements and cram them together into a single movie? You get the new zombie comedy Christmas musical Anna and the Apocalypse, which features characters singing and dancing their way through an undead uprising during the holiday season. Yes, movie … [Read more...]

‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Trailer: Kenneth Branagh and His Mustache Will Solve a Mystery

The first trailer for Murder on the Orient Express became a viral sensation not because it was representing an adaptation of a celebrated mystery novel from a grand master of the genre directed by a respected filmmaker and starring a murderer’s row of interesting actors. Oh, no. It became a viral sensation because the 20th Century Fox marketing department apparently decided that a preview for one of the most legendary whodunits of all time … [Read more...]

‘The Punisher’ Trailer: Jon Bernthal is Here to Kick Ass and Shoot You in the Face

Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle was the highlight of the uneven Daredevil season 2. Marvel’s unhinged vigilante can be a tough nut to crack (and incredibly boring when cracked incorrectly), but this take on the character, deranged and broken and terrifying, felt like a home run. At least it felt like a home run during his limited screen time in a show about another Marvel hero. Now, we’ll have to see if he can hold up in an entire … [Read more...]

‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Trailer: The Rock Hits Reset on the Most Dangerous Game

The first trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle introduced the core concept that is driving this combination of reboot and sequel. Yes, there is still a mystical game that puts children in harm’s way by plunging them into jungle-centric adventures. But while the original movie (and the original storybook) were based around a magical board game, the new film updates it to a video game…and goes a little Big on us by dropping the … [Read more...]

New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Trailer Arrives Next Month According to Blabbermouth Mark Hamill

Mark Hamill has been in the “pleasing fans with his mere appearance” business for 40 years, but he’s only been in the “adhering to incredibly strict and sometimes insane levels of studio-enforced secrecy” business for about four years. So yeah, it looks like Luke Skywalker accidentally let slip when the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer will slip. Oops. Looks like someone is getting sent back into exile … [Read more...]

‘Westworld’ Season 2 Casts ‘Lost’ Actor as New Samurai Character

In case the headline wasn’t enough, we’re pretty much going straight into some pretty insane Westworld spoilers with this news. So act accordingly. Hiroyuki Sanada has joined the cast of Westworld season 2 and his character will clearly build on on the silliest and most awesome reveal from the first season finale of HBO’s incredible science fiction series. Sanada will play the role Musashi. And all the evidence suggests that … [Read more...]

‘John Wick: Chapter 3’ Will Shoot You in the Face on May 17, 2019

“People keep asking if I’m back and I haven’t really had an answer…but yeah, I’m thinking I’m back.” Seven months after John Wick: Chapter 2 arrived in theaters and promptly blew everyone’s faces off with its distinctive blend of action movie mania, Lionsgate has set a release date for John Wick: Chapter 3. And this release date finds the little series that could graduate to the big … [Read more...]

‘Better Watch Out’ Trailer: This Could Be the Year’s Most Divisive Horror Movie

2017 has been an exceptional year for horror, with It tearing up the box office, Get Out igniting a cultural conversation, and Raw ruling the arthouse scene like the cannibalistic powerhouse that it is. But there’s another horror movie on the horizon that’s going to get people talking. And arguing. I saw Better Watch Out at Fantastic Fest last year, back when it was titled Safe Neighborhood, and hated it. Loathed it. Couldn’t … [Read more...]

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Short Film Introduces Dave Bautista’s Character; Find Out How the Film is Tracking at the Box Office

Blade Runner 2049 is less than a month away and it’s fairly remarkable how little we actually know about this movie. Denis Villeneuve‘s sequel to Ridley Scott’s science fiction classic has been holding its plot cards close the vest, with the trailers offering up stunning imagery and a vague shape of a story instead of telling us exactly what to expect. It’s a breath of fresh air, to be perfectly honest. With only a few … [Read more...]

‘Haunters: The Art of the Scare’ Trailer: An Inside Look at the ‘Scaring the Crap Out of People’ Industry

Sometimes, you see a trailer for a movie and can’t help but wonder if it was made specifically for you. The trailer for Haunters: The Art of the Scare, a feature-length documentary about the world of professional haunted houses and the people who run them, feels like someone decided to make a movie for me and only me. This is my jam and I can’t wait to watch it at Fantastic Fest next month. Anyway, you can watch the Haunters: The Art … [Read more...]
