Super Bowl TV spot for The Divergent Series: Insurgent

With as interesting as the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, may be, I really hoped it would've fixed its CG issues by now. It's a shame too because the whole dreamscape aspects are putting out all sorts of crazy Matrix vibes (al...

First official trailer for Ted 2

Ted was a nice surprise. Seth MacFarlane's passion project shined with all of the humor and heart that I would've never expected from the guy who brought us Family Guy. Then A Million Ways to Die in the West came along and w...

Super Bowl TV spot for Terminator: Genisys

This Super Bowl spot for Terminator: Genisys may take a bit of footage from the first (hilariously convoluted) trailer, but there's a bit at the end that I'm most excited for. Also, it's really hard looking at this newest po...

The Star Trek films have a lot of lens flares

According to these videos from editor Dylan Browne, there are quite a few lens flares in the first two Star Trek films. Around 1500 of them apparently. In other Star Trek news, Simon Pegg is co-writing the third film with Doug Jung (Dark Blue) with Justin Lin still signed on to direct. Only good can come of this, right?  Or at the very least, more lens flares!  [via /Film]

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.

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