Justice League actually looks pretty good in its SDCC trailer

Justice League is in the middle of a huge mess right now. DC Comics and Warner Bros. are tooling and re-tooling elements, Ben Affleck was almost phased out of the Batman role (before confirming he'd be staying on), and the fi...   0

Marvel's Inhumans San Diego Comic-Con trailer is less than impressive

There's a weird air around Marvel's The Inhumans. Maybe it's because it's a formerly scheduled film project that got bumped to TV, the fact that some of it being shot on IMAX cameras makes it seem bigger than it actually is, ...   0

Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie could finally give me the closure I've always wanted

Our current 90s nostalgia boom has resulted in some good things, and lots of bad things. But I am thankful that it's allowed some stories to finally get a real ending. Hey Arnold! was one of the many Nickelodeon shows cut dow...   0

Marvel's The Defenders comes together a little more with its San Diego Comic-Con trailer

I still haven't seen Marvel's Iron Fist, especially after Editor at Large Hubert Vigilla tore it apart in his review, but I guess I'm going to have to read some cliff notes or something if I want the full Defenders experience...   0

Todd McFarlane to direct new R-rated, lower budget Spawn movie

20 years ago Michael Jai White and John Leguizamo put on some crazy outfits and delivered an even crazier film with Spawn. While Todd MacFarlane's Spawn will never be as popular as it was in 1997, a film version now makes sen...   0

Netflix's Castlevania series looks like an anime

A teaser for the Castlevania adaptation on Netflix has just been posted on Netflix Latin America's Twitter. Watch it before it's gone! Okay, there's not enough here to actually criticize. As for the visuals, I'm fine with it. Besides, it's written by Warren Ellis. I'm sure it'll be fine.    0

Logan has basically been a master class as to how to generate hype from trailers. Although we've seen most of the same footage -- this Super Bowl spot does include a few seconds of new stuff -- I'm pretty sure each time we see it it's been effective.  I'm seeing Logan in a few weeks, and I can't wait to see how it turns out.  Logan opens March 3rd.    0

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Super Bowl spot tells some tales

I'm not sure who asked for another Pirates film, but I'm kind of glad they did?

No need to remind me he used to be in these movies.   Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens May 26th.    0
