First teaser for Turbo Kid, set in a post apocalyptic 1997

This may be the very definition of a teaser, coming in at less than 40 seconds, but boy do I need Turbo Kid in my life. Premiering at Sundance this year, Turbo Kid is an apocalypse set in a futuristic 1997. This is teaser is...

First official teaser for Fantastic Four
by Nick Valdez

After a few years of back and forth between good and bad sounding news, we finally have our first concrete look at Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot. Aaaand it's not that bad. Sure it's a bit dark (literally, that shading is sort of awful), and I would've liked another silly movie, but I'm still digging what this is selling. That cast is too good to pass up. 

Although being advertised as "From the Studio that Brought You X-Men: Days of Future Past" is a bit weird, instead of say throwing muscle behind Trank's last effort Chronicle. Oh well, Fant4stic Four opens August 7th. 

And below the jump is a version of the trailer with commentary from Josh Trank and Simon Kinberg via Yahoo!

First teaser trailer for Dead Rising: Watchtower

For a film based off the cheesy Dead Rising videogames going straight to Sony's Crackle streaming service, this doesn't look that bad. Doesn't have enough Frank West covering wars though. Dead Rising: Watchtower is available March 27th.

First trailer for DC's direct to video Batman vs. Robin

Ever since the animated Justice League specials committed to the New 52 continuity (after The Flashpoint Paradox), they haven't been very good. I don't know what's to blame for that either. Is it the comics themselves? Is it...

Get Hard trailer with Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart is... actually funny

Both Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart can be really funny guys, but the second I heard about Get Hard I figured I'd be driving the other way. It looked like a dumb film playing on all the wrong racial stereotypes just pull l...

Second Chappie trailer has robots and robot accessories

Neill Blomkamp always makes some interesting, if not always entertaining, science fiction, so I'm definitely curious as to where Chappie is headed. It's got ED-209s, Hugh Jackman using his natural accent for once, and Sigour...

First trailer for Spy brings Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig back again

Melissa McCarth and Paul Feig are like bestest comedy buddies, and their efforts turn out pretty solid as Bridesmaids and The Heat (Nick was too harsh) can attest to. The pair are pairing up again for a spy sp...

Newest Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is better than the first

This may technically be a TV spot that debuted during, um, sports(?), but it's long enough and full of new footage so I'm going to go ahead and say this is the second trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. It's much more balan...

First trailer for Run All Night starring Liam Neeson

I don't know about you all, but I miss the super dramatic Liam Neeson. Sure his latest career trend has been awesome, and in reverse as you'd expect a young man to take on a bunch of action films and gradually join Oscar nom...

Fan edit of Marvel's Ant-Man trailer makes it a bit better

After the release of the first trailer for Marvel's Ant-Man a few days ago, talk around the water cooler led me to believe most people found it underwhelming. I'd sadly agree. I'm fond of how weird it's going to be, but some...

The Voices trailer delivers more than it appears

In the realm of talking animal movies there's pretty much one genre and that genre is children's comedies. The Voices is not that. Yes, it has talking animals, but it's also a dark comedy with slasher instincts. Plus, it...

First official trailer for Marvel's Ant-Man

It's been a bumpy road for Marvel's Ant-Man. From former director Edgar Wright publicly leaving the project, to multiple writers tackling rewrites, to multiple cast additions late in production, the odds have certainly been stacked against Marvel's most likely weirdest superhero. 

But as Guardians of the Galaxy proves, having oddball content doesn't mean failure. Folks flocked to that film and it was regarded as one of Marvel's best by most fans. So what will the future hold for Ant-Man? If this first trailer is indication, maybe it's good things. 

Ant-Man releases July 17th.

I'm not usually one for these "America" films, but Clint Eastwood has proven time and time again he's good at deconstructing the jingoistic nature of the country. I've been gripped by American Sniper ever since its first tra...
