Meryl Streep & Tom Hanks Expose Government Corruption In “The Post” (Trailer)

In our society, the press is supposed to function as a ‘watchdog on government’… to ‘comfort the afflicted and afflict to comfortable’… a very necessary role. But we have seen, time and again, how that can be a very DANGEROUS role for those in the press; who have dealt with threats on their lives and livelihoods to keep us all up in OUR government’s business (because it is OUR business).

Watergate. Iran Contra. The baseless war in Iraq (to take out weapons of mass destruction that were NOT there)… scandals uncovered by the press. When they do what they are meant to do, reporters serve a critical role in our democracy; holding those in power accountable.

This is an homage to those in the press who did their duty, at great risk, back in the day. “The Post” is looking like another incredible movie that tells a compelling real-life story about what some key figures in the press went through to keep America (and the world) informed about what the government tried to keep covered up.

Steven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in “The Post,” a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers – and their very freedom – to help bring long-buried truths to light.

Watch The Final Teaser For “Geostorm” (Trailer)

Sending prayers to Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas, and all in the wake of the hurricanes and tropical storms. Much has happened in the way of natural phenomena attacking humanity where it lives since the first “Geostorm” trailer we posted. Of course, this epic enviro-thriller will take things extremely over the top, but it does kind of trigger feelings regarding our own dealings with nature’s wrath.

Okay, on with the trailer. One last look (trailer) before it hits big silver screens.

Action/Fantasy/Thriller: Natalie Portman Stars In “Annihilation” (Teaser Trailer)

The teaser doesn’t give much away about the story, but it might give you a case of the heebies and the jeebies (that ‘music’ though)! A little digging… so Natalie Portman’s character’s husband got into a spot of trouble in a spot that’s like a dark Narnia meets the Savage Land meets the Bermuda Triangle. Guess the rest of the story will come to us on or before 1st quarter 2018.

Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, “Annihilation” stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac. It was written and directed by Alex Garland (“Ex Machina,” “28 Days Later”).

‘Hunger Games’ Director Francis Lawrence Directs Jennifer Lawrence Again, This Time Starring As The “Red Sparrow” (Trailer)

From playing shape-shifting infiltration specialist mutant Mystique to ‘Hunger Games’ insurrectionist, it’s like Jennifer Lawrence’s roles have been a demo reel for a blood pressure-raising spy thriller like this. Especially when it is being directed by the same guy that helmed the ‘Hunger Games’ blockbusters, Francis Lawrence. Check out the trailer for “Red Sparrow” above. Looks like it goes sultry to gritty faster than 0-to-100… real quick!

Dominika Egorova is many things.
A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs.
A prima ballerina whose ferocity has pushed her body and mind to the absolute limit.
A master of seductive and manipulative combat.

When she suffers a career-ending injury, Dominika and her mother are facing a bleak and uncertain future. That is why she finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, she emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow the program has ever produced. Dominika must now reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.

AMC Screens “The Walking Dead” Season 8 Teaser At SDCC (Trailer)

Aw HELLLLLLL naw! That could NOT be all a dream. I will go on record saying how lame that would be. So, no, the nightmare world king of AMC Originals, “The Walking Dead,” was all real. I declare it!

(Okay, as real as a zombie series can get on TV. And after watching the Comic Con trailer above, you will see just how real sh!t can get!)

Watch The “Fear The Walking Dead” Season 3 Trailer Shown At SDCC 2017 (Trailer)

If you have not been keeping up with “Fear The Walking Dead” (or worse yet, have not gotten into the series)… It is okay. You have time to binge before it starts back up again. Get with your cable provider and get into the On Demand section. Watch some excellent zombie-genre television.

Now, that is my opinion and plea for you. But watch what the pros teased and lured San Diego Comic Con attendees with this year. Dope right?

Dave Bautista & Brittany Snow Are Trying To Make It Through Martial Law In ‘Bushwick’ (Trailer)

Ransom? Nah, Son! Kidnappers Try To Run From Halle Berry In “Kidnap” (Trailer)

You took the wrong kid!

YES! This looks like a lot of good buttery popcorn munching. Halle Berry going ‘mad mommy mode’ on some kidnappers that she is about to make PAY for taking her baby! Mad like ‘angry’ AND mad like ‘crazy’ at the same damn time!

Full disclosure: I see that the folks who brought us that screen trash they call “Transformers” are involved. So this could be a bunch of hollering and crashes and boom-boom-pow with no substance or discernable storyline. PLEASE let this be a movie with some heart that drives the drama – more “Armageddon” than “Ah, look at Megan Fox run, bounce and scream soooo sexy.”

(Because, no diss to ‘bouncy sexy women’ depending on that to ‘make’ the movie is turribull… it’s just turribull #BarkleyVoice)

It (Teaser Trailer)

Now if you’re gonna mess with a Stephen King classic, you better redo it right… MESS with it, and make sure it’s scary enough to make you MESS your drawers!

– Warner Bros. Pictures

Watching the trailer. Thinking the remakers are on to something. Might have a shot. Not with us though. Never scared! And we always watch horror movie trailers in the middle of the day with all the lights on around here. Doesn’t mean this trailer is scary at all.

Dammit, Tom Hanks! Just when we were starting to see the upside of using drones more, here you come with the spin… And why not give us some creepy ‘watching you’ music to make this Orwell cocktail go down all the more eerily. “The Circle” trailer above.

Get Out (Trailer)

You see Jordan Peele – formerly of Comedy Central’s Key & Peele – on this and you are waiting to laugh; just holding your breath. You might wanna let that go, and take a few more. This gets real intense real quick. Says this is from Peele’s mind. What part? Wowwwww…

In Universal Pictures’ Get Out, a speculative thriller from Blumhouse (producers of The Visit, Insidious series and The Gift) and the mind of Jordan Peele, when a young African-American man visits his white girlfriend’s family estate, he becomes ensnared in a more sinister real reason for the invitation.

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya, Sicario) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams, Girls), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy (Catherine Keener, Captain Phillips) and Dean (Bradley Whitford, The Cabin in the Woods).

At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined.

Equal parts gripping thriller and provocative commentary, Get Out is written and directed by Peele (Key and Peele) and produced by Blumhouse’s Jason Blum, as well as Sean McKittrick (Donnie Darko, The Box), Peele and Edward H. Hamm Jr. (The Box, Bad Words). The film also stars Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men series), Milton “Lil Rel” Howery (The Carmichael Show), Betty Gabriel (The Purge: Election Year), Marcus Henderson (Pete’s Dragon) and Keith Stanfield (Straight Outta Compton).

Truthfully, this could kind of play like a long Key and Peele skit. Like, if they were to come out and talk the audience down and make ’em chuckle at the end. Wouldn’t count on it though.
