  • Sarah Connor: First Look at Returning ‘Terminator’ Heroine

    Sarah Connor: First Look at Returning ‘Terminator’ Heroine

    It has been more than 25 years since we last checked in with Sarah Connor, modern-day mother of our savior against the machines — and I’m talking about the real one, played by Linda Hamilton, not any of her imitators which frankly I suspect are secretly Terminators themselves. But now, she’s coming back: Official first look […]

  • ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Gets Second Official Trailer (Video)

    ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Gets Second Official Trailer (Video)

    Like the Rolling Stones say, when you’re downright disgusted, and life ain’t worth a dang, get a girl with anime eyes. A girl like Alita: Battle Angel, for instance, the cyborg heroine of an upcoming collaboration between Bob Rodriguez and Jim Cameron, the second trailer for which is now online. Here’s (part of) the accompanying synopsis: […]

  • ‘Extinction': Michael Peña vs Alien Invaders (Trailer)

    ‘Extinction': Michael Peña vs Alien Invaders (Trailer)

    Michael Peña is (I’m assuming here) one of the highlights of Ant-Man and The Wasp now in theaters, and now he’s making a jump into Netflix leading man, with Extinction. Here’s what it’s all about, as per the film’s official synopsis: “A father has a recurring dream of losing his family. His nightmare turns into reality when the […]

  • ‘Hotel Artemis': A Hotel/Hospital for Criminals (Trailer)

    ‘Hotel Artemis': A Hotel/Hospital for Criminals (Trailer)

    Fans of John Wick and its sequel John Wick: Chapter 2 are certainly aware of the Continental Hotel, the upscale hotel for professional criminals that is central to the character’s adventures. The makers of Hotel Artemis, an upcoming big screen thriller with an even crazier cast than the Wicks have, seem to be aware of this as well. Here’s the official […]

  • ‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties': Aliens vs Punks (Trailer)

    ‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties': Aliens vs Punks (Trailer)

    Don’t be fooled by the intentionally misleading title: How to Talk to Girls at Parties fits right into the modern film industry’s frenzy for scifi stories. It’s based on just such a story by Neil Gaiman, and as the official plot synopsis makes clear this is not an instructional guide on how to find love, although maybe […]

  • Final ‘Ready Player One’ Trailer (Video)

    Final ‘Ready Player One’ Trailer (Video)

    I feel like the advertising campaign for Ready Player One has been going on forever, that there was never a time before everyone was arguing about this movie’s unique blend of insufferable 80s mythologizing and Spielberg action set-pieces. But actually it’s only been a few months, and now the whole thing is wrapping up with what is […]

  • ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Gets First Trailer During Super Bowl (Video)

    ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ Gets First Trailer During Super Bowl (Video)

    If you watched the Super Bowl last night, and were paying attention to the commercials for whatever reason, you already saw the first trailer for the eagerly anticipated Solo: A Star Wars Story, featuring some of Han Solo’s old pre-Star Wars adventures. But in case you missed it, the trailer is now on the internet for everybody […]

  • ‘Mute': Duncan Jones’ Futuristic Thriller for Netflix (Trailer)

    ‘Mute': Duncan Jones’ Futuristic Thriller for Netflix (Trailer)

    There must be something floating around in the cultural air these days to make people interested in some nebulous cyberpunk future. First there was Blade Runner 2049, then we have the upcoming Netflix series Altered Carbon, and now there’s Mute, a movie by Duncan Jones (director, Netflix is eager to remind us all, of Moon, Source Code, and Warcraft) that appears to fit […]
