Watch the red-band trailer for James Gunn's intense office horror film The Belko Experiment

In between Guardians of the Galaxy and the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn wrote a movie that's decidedly nothing like Guardians of the Galaxy. In fact, it looks like a cross between The Office and Ben ...   0

Video essay: Why was Steven Seagal such a big deal back in the day?

9-minute trailer for Zhang Yimou's The Great Wall is more than just Matt Damon

Trailer remix video: What if Wes Anderson directed Robert Eggers' The Witch?

Robert Eggers' The Witch (or The VVitch, as the cool kids write it) is one of my favorite movies of 2016. It's a bleak, despairing period film, and it slowly unnerved me through its accretion of dread. I still think abou...   0

Marvel's Doctor Strange gets the 8-Bit Cinema treatment, looks a little like Mega Man

The official trailer for Wonder Woman is full of heroism and graceful badassery

The San Diego Comic Con trailer for Wonder Woman was wonderful, and the best ray of hope for the bleak DC Cinematic Universe. It offered some glimpses of Wonder Woman's home of Themyscira and the culture of the Amazons while also showcasing Wonder Woman's prowess as a warrior. Today the first official trailer for Wonder Woman dropped, and you can give it a watch below.   0
