Solo. That’s the title of the upcoming Star Wars Story spinoff that follows the adventures of a young Han Solo, played by Alden Ehrenreich. After months of speculation, a change in directors, and reshoots, Ron Howard finally revealed the official title of the project — formerly operating under the working title “Red Cup” — on his Twitter account today in a special message to fans.
John Cena’s comedic talents are truly a gift to us all. This time he’s putting those skills to use alongside fellow funny people Leslie Mann and Ike Barinholtz in Blockers, in which they play a trio of concerned parents on a mission to stop their teen daughters from completing their prom night sex pact. It probably doesn’t need explaining, but it’s pretty obvious just what these three are attempting to block in the first red band trailer for the upcoming comedy.
Admittedly, this old video of Gerard Butler auditioning for the lead in Dracula 2000 isn’t new to the internet, but it is entirely appropriate viewing for this spoooooky season. It is so hilariously terrifying that you could easily put it on a YouTube playlist for your Halloween party and not a single guest would question why “Gerard Butler Dracula Audition” was queued up between “The Monster Mash” and a compilation of Freddy Krueger kills.
What happens when you take the classic “boy has a crush on his hot babysitter” trope, add some ritual human sacrifice, a bunch of blood and gore, and a dose of humor? You get The Babysitter. The first trailer for the new film from McG (who hasn’t directed a feature since 2014’s forgettable 3 Days to Kill) looks like his most entertaining project in ages, and it’s coming to Netflix next week.
A couple of weeks ago, Warner Bros. released the first in a trilogy of short prequel films for Blade Runner 2049. Set in 2036, that short introduced us to Jared Leto’s enigmatic antagonist Niander Wallace. The second prequel short dropped today, and it gives us a little background on another new character: Sapper, played by Dave Bautista, who gets to put some of those famous pro-wrestling skills to use in Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic.
Before Liam Neeson completely retires from the Liam Neeson action thriller genre, he has two films on tap: Hard Powder (in which he plays a snowplow driver who goes up against drug dealers, as only Liam Neeson could), and The Commuter, which reunites the actor with Non-Stop and Run All Night director Jaume Collet-Serra. On the heels of Neeson’s retirement announcement comes the first trailer for the latter, which basically seems like Non-Stop, but this time it’s on a train and Vera Farmiga is apparently playing the evil twin of her character from The Departed.
The latest trailer for mother! is arguably more effective than the first — hard to imagine after that initial and completely bonkers sneak peek, I know. But this one uses sound and dialogue to unnerving effect, and although doing more telling than showing seems counterintuitive, it’s a concept that works brilliantly in the second trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s new film, and his first since 2014’s Noah.
Had your fill of Star Wars news yet? No? Good. The floodgates are officially open, and even more photos and details from The Last Jedi have been unleashed. This time, we’re taking the path to the Dark Side with new intel on Supreme Leader Snoke and his “elite” Praetorian Guard — essentially an upgraded, more badass version of the series’ classic Imperial Guard.
If you head to your local theater next week to check out Annabelle: Creation, you’ll be treated to an extra serving — a small appetizer or horrors d’ouevres (sorry), if you will — of phobia-inducing terror. A special four-minute sneak peek of the new adaptation of Stephen King’s IT is reportedly set to screen before the Annabelle prequel, just in case you needed a side of creepy clown with your order of creepy doll.
You know what they say: Everything is better with friends. That includes fighting an evil demonic clown who lives in town sewer system and has an affinity for Victorian era garb. Wardrobe preference notwithstanding, Pennywise is still pretty darn terrifying, especially if you’re already scared of clowns — in which case, you might want to avoid the new trailer for IT.
An animated film featuring anthropomorphic emojis like Poop and High Five is probably not the best, um, vessel for a parody of a dystopian series in which fertile women are forced to procreate with wealthy men. But that’s exactly what happened late yesterday afternoon, when the marketing for The Emoji Movie took a decidedly dark and exceedingly ill-advised turn. In a tweet that has since been deleted, the film’s official account shared a promotional photo parodying The Handmaid’s Tale, Hulu’s acclaimed series adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s classic novel. Unsurprisingly (and delightfully), the public response was swift and savage.
