Keanu Reeves Is Back For ‘Chapter 3’ Of The John Wick Franchise (Trailer)

John Wick was retired when we started this thing right? But folks had to f**k with him (sigh)… You’d think they’d have learned to leave him alone by now.

Then again, Keanu’s character does end up killing most everybody he ‘teaches’ that lesson in his movies. Good for moviegoers, because we keep getting movies full of good, grimy, popcorn-munching azz kickery. Plus, this go ’round… Halle Berry

Get A First Look At “Fast Color,” The Acclaimed Superpowered Flick Coming To Theaters (Trailer)

Coming off a good SXSW run. Cool. Characterizing the hero’s powers as she experiences them during use. Interesting perspective and very cool, too. Powerful abilities on top of that. Abilities which, of course, put her on the run. Toss in tension with the family who she hopes will help her… and action, drama, sci-fi… BOOM!

It’s Summer, And Spider-Man Is “Far From Home” (Trailer)

Okay, watching this trailer should leave you with [at least] two takeaways: (1) Just when you don’t expect it, Nick Fury will come through, AND (2) Nick Fury came through, Peter… which is… Why. You. NEVER. Leave. Your. Spidey. Suit. At. Home!!

(Acceptable alternate takeaway: Auntie is super cute. Looks like she could make Happy reeeeally HAPPY. Haha!)

DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol” Series Premieres February 15, 2019 (Trailer)

Wooowww! Ohhhhh, so that’s how they are doing it! See, DC Universe’s series “Titans” has everyone I remember on the ‘Teen Titans’ I remember from the comics I read… except Cyborg. I was thinking, “Since Cyborg was part of the ‘Justice League’ on the big screen he cannot just show up on a streaming series.”

Oh yes, he can. Plus, ‘Doom Patrol’ was an episode in “Titans” season 1. Bet your pockets there will be a crossover that puts Cy down with the ‘Titans’ at least temporarily. DOPE!

Watch the first teaser trailer for DC Universe’s “Doom Patrol,” starring Matt Bomer as Larry Trainor/Negative Man, Brendan Fraser as Cliff Steele/Robotman, April Bowlby as Elasti-Woman, Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane, Joivan Wade as Victor Stone/Cyborg, and Timothy Dalton as Dr. Niles Caulder/The Chief.

New casting for ‘The Chief’ huh? Interesting.

“Aquaman” Debuted As The #1 Movie (Video)

Have you seen the latest DC movie “Aquaman” yet? Looks like DC is hitting the come-from-behind trail hard with this one. Here’s the last teaser for the movie that took the top spot this past weekend (according to Variety, see their take on the flick after the jump).

Loving the way they got the archnemesis Black Manta’s look just right (e.g. like we remember from back in the day, but modernized a just a touch).

Summer 2019: ‘Men In Black’ Is Back… And Going International (Trailer)

Now that’s how you do a reboot… or reset or reintroduction! Whatever we’re calling this latest installment of the “Men In Black” franchise, looking at this trailer, they did that! Some ‘Fast N Furious’ style added to the ‘cop-buddy action flick meets Star Wars‘ feel makes for what looks like a great time at the theater in the coming year. Peep the trailer.

“Hellboy” Set To Return To The Big Screen April 12, 2019 (Trailer)

Maybe you were not heavy into the “Hellboy” flicks before, but you’ll want to get into it with this one. Trusting in the power of this trailer at least. The forecast for April 2019 at the theater: HELLA DOPE MOVIE!

(Anybody checking for Ron Perlman in this might be a touch mad, but not big mad… hopefully. Looks like a good movie regardless.)

The ‘Endgame’ Is Near: Check Out This “Avengers 4” Teaser (Trailer)

Wait. WAIT! But what about Captain Marvel?? And why is Ant-Man not still shrunk the hell out of our realm of existence… who brought him back? Too many questions…

Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” Releases An Epic Second Teaser (Trailer)

The answer to the pop quiz – ‘Who does Nick Fury call when Thanos snaps half the Universe out of existence, including himself, before disintegrating into nothingness?’ – is Captain Marvel! But what makes… her… so… specia… OH!

Now At Mid-Season, DC Universe’s Series “Titans” Is Really Good. Check Out Its Latest Teaser (Trailer)

Okay, so slide me a late-to-the-party pass. But I am glad I checked this out at all. It did NOT pass the eyeball test for me at first. Robin’s costume is cool, but everyone else had me thinking meehhh…

But this series is actually really good! I think DC Universe is still running it’s free week-long trial. Check it out for yourself. I got the trailer embedded above, but I think you need an entire episode to really get into it.

Watch The Final “Aquaman” Teaser Before The Film Debuts December 21st In Theaters (Video)

DC is betting the movie franchise on its next installment, “Aquaman.” The protector of Atlantis, of the seas… will become the savior of the world (and continue the DC comeback in theaters; if it proves itself a successful follow-up to Wonder Woman and “Justice League”).

Fingers crossed.

Final “Robin Hood” Teaser Before It Hits Theaters Later This Month (Trailer)

Yep, the dude from the “Kingsman” franchise (Taron Egerton) is going low-tech with the action in retelling a classic tale. Old school. Medieval. With Jamie Foxx teaching him how to rob from the rich, give to the poor, with style, rocking a sweet throwback hoodie joint. Haha!

FOX’s New Show, “The Passage” (Trailer)

Of course, this triggers me. I’m from Tuskegee, Alabama, where the government carried out the syphilis study (medical research). Sure, this is science fiction, right? No way this could happen in real life. Right. Folks this kind of stuff has happened over and over. My vision ain’t blurry. And that’s not even my third eye seeing… that’s just history… readily available for anyone to read. Just Google “Tuskegee Experiment.”

Bitterness aside, I am still watching this. Fox’s “Gifted” is a good series, and this has a similar feel.

This Animé “MFKZ” Has Some Of Everybody Doing Everything R-Rated In It (Trailer)

Rated R? That all?? Looks like it could be ‘stronger’ with the warning. Bloody violence, check! Foul language, check! And sexual content, aaaand check! Yep… checks all the boxes for some dope, slick, sick anime that fans like; just like they like it!!

The film [“MFKZ”] centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an LA-inspired dystopian metropolis – a burnt-out, gang and cockroach-ridden neo-urban hell. Following a scooter accident, Angelino starts experiencing migraines and strange hallucinations, as well as fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half human and half Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet.
– Pitchfork

Check for this [very] limited engagement anime film in theaters October 11th and 16th.

“X-Men: Dark Phoenix” Hits Theaters Valentine’s Day 2019 (Trailer)

Surely comic book version purists were miffed at when the X-Men movie franchise messed with several storylines in the first trilogy (esp. in ‘The Last Stand’… Cain Marko aka Juggernaut is NOT a mutant). But this “Dark Phoenix” might, just might, try to steer in the direction of comic canon.

See, in ‘The Last Stand’ Jean Grey did all she could (with Professor X’s …um …help) to control the Dark Phoenix within. But we had no idea where the Phoenix came from. It was like Jean had a super-powered schizophrenic evil alter ego; one that was just there, that Xavier wouldn’t dare let Jean let out. Which likely left longtime ‘X-men’ readers yelling at the screen: HELLO! Phoenix is a COSMIC entity! Where’s the outer space part of the story!???!

Well, fingers crossed, the trailer above could be letting us know that they are going there. FINALLY! Saw a little bit of a space trip in there, but look and see if you see it, too.

(Plus, the teaser text after the jump. Really promising the good goods!)

So far, the ‘prequel’ and ‘alternate’ storyline movies (‘First Class,’ ‘Days Of Future Past,’ and ‘Apocalypse’) of the franchise have scaled up well as far as ‘popcorn effect’ goes… complex story arcs, conflicted characters, BIG explosions and massive destruction scenes from torn down cityscapes to ripped up ocean floors. And a plethora of X-Men are in play (most everyone but Wolverine, unless you count quick cameos). So whatever they choose to do with them and this story we can trust it’ll be epic, well worth the price of admission.

Of course, we will know that for sure by February of next year!

Marvel Introduces A New ‘Captain’ To The Universe (Trailer)

Whoooooaaaa! That looks like it’s gonna be DOPE!

Ryan Gosling Takes ‘One Small Step’ In This Big Screen Retelling Of The “First Man” Who Walked On The Moon (Trailer)

Whether or not you believe man has been to the moon and back… man, the story of the trip there is EPIC… if you tell it right.

A look at the life of the astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969.

This trailer will have you believing that “First Man” will tell you a good story. Watch.

South African Western ‘Five Fingers For Marseilles’ Is In American Theaters Now (Trailer)

DOPE!

Marseilles was never free, but it will be. Change is coming. #AfricaRising

“Five Fingers For Marseilles” is being billed as a ‘rousing, heroic, original South African Western’ (the existence of such a genre is EPIC enough already). The trailer more than teases a bold & fully engaging story arc, azz-kickery and grit, with just enough modernness (i.e. bicycles instead of horses, guns but not automatics for the shootouts). Watch the trailer and judge for self if you agree it’s worth the upgrade to large popcorn with extra butter!

The Final Teaser For The “Predator” Reboot Is Shorter And Packed With More Crazy Action (Trailer)

Why should we give the “Predator” reboot a chance at the box office? Because,

They’re large.
They’re fast.
And f**king you up is their idea of tourism!

Movie line of the year!! Dialogue like that, plus whatever has Keegan-Michael Key hollering, “YEAH!” like that. Gotta risk the price of the ticket to see.

From the outer reaches of space to the backwoods of southern Georgia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before. And only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biology professor can prevent the end of the human race.

See Some Hardcore Parkour On Abandoned Hotels (Video)

They are wilding out! Free running, cray or dangerous… whatever you wanna call this parkour dudes are doing on here… This is it. The moves and music will get your heart rate up (whether you are an active participant in the sport or not).

We traveled to Croatia to film parkour on the rooftops of five abandoned hotels. Using slow motion cameras, we captured three of the UK’s best free runners reclaiming the space through movement. The hotels were bombarded during the Croatian War for Independence, and you can still see the impact hits on the walls there. They have since been abandoned for twenty years. Kupari is set to be demolished and rebuilt in 2019, so the vacancy might not be for much longer.
