New Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

Marvel Studios has shared the newest trailer for Avengers: Infinity War and it’s filled to the brim with action and character interaction that we’ve dreamed of for years. Iron Man and Star Lord, Captain America fighting Thanos, and Doctor Strange and Spider-Man… all moments in this one trailer, and it still manages to not spoil the plot, at all.

It’s an impressive trailer, and definitely one pushing the hype train forward in a big way for Avengers: Infinity War. Additionally, tickets are now on sale at all major online ticket retailers! Get them now, because they’re going fast!

Ava DuVernay Directing New Gods Film for DC


That is the craziest headline that I thought I would never write. Ava DuVernay made history last week as the first black woman to helm a $100 Million+ tent-pole film with A Wrinkle in Time, and now she’s set to join the DC Universe as she is in talks to direct a New Gods film.

New Gods is based on the popular Jack Kirby creation, but is said to not be tied to the DC Extended Universe for the time being, so we’ll see what interesting film gets made.


Danny Boyle Directing Bond 25


What a whirlwind this has been. After the announcement that Daniel Craig was returning for one more James Bond film, amidst all of his negative energy during promotion for the last film, we were all wondering who would grab the director’s chair. There was a rumor that Nolan would take it, among others. However, it looks like Academy Award winner Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) has taken the job.

Yesterday, Boyle addressed the reported rumors of his involvement with Bond 25 in an interview with Metro US in which he mentioned he’s currently in the process of developing a script, alongside Trainspotting’s John Hodge penned by Richard Curtis.


Shadow of the Tomb Raider Set to be Revealed


If you head over to the official Tomb Raider website, you’ll be greeted with the above image, teasing a new reveal for the Tomb Raider series tomorrow at 6am PST. A quick dig into the HTML of the site reveals the information a little early, though:

“tagline”:”Shadow of The Tomb Raider is the climatic finale of Lara’s origin story. Available September 14th 2018″

The previous two games, Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider, were developed at San Francisco-based Crystal Dynamics, which is now working on an Avengers game.


Teen Titans GO! Getting Its Justice League


Warner Bros. Animation is slowly releasing the voice cast for its upcoming Teen Titans GO! To The Movies, and it’s Justice League is shaping up to be something special. Lil Yachty is set to play Green Lantern John Stewart, singer-songwriter Halsey will play Wonder Woman, and Nicolas Cage will finally get his chance to play Superman.

This is most certainly a ton of stunt-casting, but it’s going to make for one hell of a fun movie, which this is most certainly shaping up to be.


First Trailer for Crimes of Grindelwald Hits

Warner Bros. has released the first official trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the follow-up to the first Fantastic Beasts film. The first trailer shows a much more serious, action-packed film, filled to the brim with familiar characters and settings that are sure to excite fans of the Wizarding World.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is set to be released on November 16th, 2018.


Vin Diesel Officially Cast as Valiant’s Bloodshot


It’s been a long process of back and forth casting for the Valiant Universe character, but immortal marksmen Bloodshot now officially has an actor in Vin Diesel. Based on the character created by Kevin VanHook, Don Perlin, and Bob Layton back in 1992, Bloodshot will follow Ray Garrison, a super-soldier created by a government organization code-named Project: Rising Spirit.

The film will come from writers, Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) and Eric Heisserer (Arrival) with Blur Studios’ David Wilson in the director’s chair.


Kristen Wiig Confirmed as Cheetah


Wonder Woman 2 now officially has its villain. Director, Patty Jenkins, confirmed this morning on Twitter that Kristen Wiig has officially been cast as Barbara Ann Minerva AKA The Cheetah.

No other news regarding the sequel aside from its setting and villain have been revealed, but the film is expected to start filming this summer, so expect plenty more in the months to come.


First Teaser for Disney’s Christopher Robin

Disney is on a tear this week the teaser trailers! Disney’s Christopher Robin now has its official bit of footage and it’s pretty divisive, in my opinion. The film is directed by Marc Forster, and stars Ewan McGregor as an older, more cynical Christopher Robin who has long since left the Hundred-Acre Wood, but will rediscover joy as he meets up with his old pals.

Winnie the Pooh and all of his friends are rendered in realistic CGI using their stuffed toy forms, which is jarring, but the soothing nostalgic voice of Jim Cummings as Pooh certainly gave me goosebumps. Christopher Robin is set to hit theaters on August 3rd.


Green Lantern Corps Moving Ahead


Warner Bros. is finally moving forward with their long-awaited Green Lantern Corps film, with a short official synopsis, and word from That Hashtag Show that the studio is looking at Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher, Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation, Mission: Impossible-Fallout) to take the director’s chair.

“Former test pilot Hal Jordan, now a veteran of the intergalactic group of protectors of peace and justice known as the Green Lantern Corps, mentors young recruit John Stewart.”

With that synopsis in mind, the studio is looking for someone aged 39-50 to play Hal Jordan, which still leaves long-time McQuarrie collaborator Tom Cruise on the table, as well as many of the other rumored actors for the role of Hal Jordan. If Warner Bros. was smart, they would jump on the red-hot Michael B. Jordan for the role of journeyman John Stewart. But, that’s just my opinion.


Godzilla: Monster Planet Sequel Unveiled


Toho Animation and Polygon Pictures today unveiled the first key-artwork, title, and release date for the second film in the animated Godzilla: Monster Planet trilogy. The film is currently titled Godzilla: Battle Mobile Breeding City and will hit theaters in Japan on May 18th, 2018.

While the site is in Japanese, you can head over to the official website for more information, and you can hit the jump for the first official poster for the film, giving us an ominous look at the film’s version of Mecha-Godzilla.

First Mary Poppins Returns Teaser Trailer

Disney has been quite busy setting up their year of magical films this year, as viewers of the Oscars were given a treat last night with the first teaser trailer for Mary Poppins Returns, starring Emily Blunt, Angela Lansbury, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep, Colin Firth, and Julie Walters.

The announcement was made via Twitter, against a conversation with franchise star, Robert Downey Jr.
