Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows gets a Krang-zy trailer

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of Shadows is coming off very apologist. After the first film was knocked about by fans (I liked it enough and it got the turtles' personalities right), the sequel wants to do everything it c...   0

X-Men: Apocalypse's Super Bowl spot locks it down

I was a bit worried after X-Men: Apocalypse's first trailer seemed like a mess, but the tighter editing on this 30 second Super Bowl spot cleaned it up. Rather than seem over packed, the little tidbits we're shown are cool lo...   0

The first full trailer for David Ayer's Suicide Squad plays like WB/DC's answer to Guardians of the Galaxy. Still don't like the songs these trailers keep using but it's pretty well edited. The film looks fun, but also kinda ...   0

These Suicide Squad skull posters are ready for your Hot Topic shirts
