This Avengers: Age of Ultron TV spot busts up the joint

Watch Tom Hanks recreate most of his films in under 7 minutes

With James Corden taking over The Late Late Show after Craig Ferguson, he sure had to start off with a bang because only a few people really know who he is. His first big guest was Tom Hanks, and Hanks did way more that sit ...

First official trailer for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation photo
First official trailer for Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation
by Nick Valdez

First things first. Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible 5, featuring the incredibly awesome and incredibly real high flying plane stunt, is now officially titled Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation. Secondly, this trailer is legit. Yesterday, they released a teaser for the trailer (we rarely feature trailer teases here because they're stupid) and it was so well done, I wouldn't have minded if that original one minute of footage was all we got. 

After a release date change and last minute rewrite, Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation will do the impossible July 31st. Tom Cruise always finds a way to top himself, and after seeing him repel on the world's largest skyscraper for Ghost Protocol, I can't wait to see what comes next. 

Also, Fugees. The trailer tease is below to so you can see what I was talking about.

Rumor: Naked Schwarzenegger will be sans Penys in Terminator: Genisys

We try to stay away from rumors as much as possible, but as in the past, sometimes something so ridiculous pops up, I just have to tell you about it. Case in point, the craziest thing I've heard about Terminator: Genisys (bes...

Flix for Short: Big Birdman

We've featured Sesame Street parodies on the site before, but they've never been as mindblowing as this. Featuring Caroll Spinney and Big Bird, this is just all kinds of perfect.  "How did we get here? How did we get to Sesame Street?"

Neill Blomkamp will officially direct new Alien film photo
Neill Blomkamp will officially direct new Alien film
by Nick Valdez

When you write your list of perfect directors for the Alien franchise, where does Neill Blomkamp (director of District 9, Elysium and the upcoming Chappie) fall in? Hope it's close to the top because after what seems like months, Fox and Blomkamp have finally closed the deal. 

After Blomkamp posted some concept art to Instagram a few weeks back, he posited that he'd like to make an Alien film after his work on Chappie as a sort of reboot to the series. But he was the problem. It was just a matter of wanting to do it rather than being told not to. But I guess it's all straightened out now! According to Variety, Blomkamp's Alien is separated from the Prometheus films (so we're still getting Prometheus 2 for some reason) and will apparently take place years after the first Prometheus. 

If this can be anywhere as near as cool as that artwork he drew for the series, I'm game. I'm dropping the best one in the gallery below.

Sony's Spider-Man officially joining Marvel cinematic universe photo
Sony's Spider-Man officially joining Marvel cinematic universe
by Nick Valdez

Wow, so, uh, yeah. I'm at a loss for words. Because both Sony and Marvel like money, and Sony has been wondering what to do with the The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, the two companies are now working together. According to the deal, Marvel's "new" Spider-Man (which most likely will recast Andrew Garfield and start a new line of films) will first appear in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film and Sony will then release the next Spider-Man film in 2017. 

The two studios will collaborate with Sony remaining in control of future Spider-Man solo projects, but will allow Spider-Man to presumably join films like The Avengers and Marvel working to get its characters into future Spider films. 

Holy bologna. Time to speculate! I'm hoping for Miles Morales actually since the press release emphasizes "new Spider-Man" and Marvel will most likely want a clean slate. Plus, it's the best way to get a new Spider-Man without the same origin story. Holy moley, you guys. Here's the press release.

2014's Best Dog in Film photo
2014's Best Dog in Film
by Nick Valdez

As good as the films of 2014 were, you know what was even better? The animals. There were lots of standout roles for animals this year, both real and imaginary. In almost every film I watched, there was some cute dog or cat hanging around just because. 

So I figured why not honor the best one? It was pretty tough, but I decided to choose an animal based on what it means for the film as a whole. So even with all of the dogs and cats of varying importance, only one puppy stood out and actively set the plot of its film in motion. 

Honorable Mentions: That running dog in Godzilla, Digby and the "crazy cute" dog from The Interview, that one cat from The Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1, the turtle from Laggies, that one cat from Gone Girl, that one cat from The Grand Budapest Hotel, the horse in the Red Sea from Exodus: Gods and Kings, Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy, Koba/Caesar from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

First official teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens photo
First official teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens
by Nick Valdez

It's been a long time coming. When Disney bought out Lucasfilm two years ago and announced their plans for another Star Wars trilogy, we all went into some sort of nerd shock. Whether or not you're a fan of the films, you understand the kind of weight the Star Wars name has. And whether you like it or not, this (official, not one of the many fan videos surging around social media as of this writing) first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets the tone for the next decade.

With J.J. Abrams directing, a huge and notable cast joining the effort (including John Boyega and Oscar Isaac), and the original tripod of Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford returning, the seventh entry is surely going to reign supreme for years to come.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens releases December 18th, 2015. What do you think?
