Christopher Meloni Stars In SyFy’s Original “Happy!” Coming To Starting December 6th (Trailer)

Well, would you look at this… Elliot Christopher Meloni Stabler from “Law & Order: SVU” has got himself another gig. Looks like a cross between “Roger Rabit” and “Sin City” – like those two flicks had a fling and abandoned the baby. And it grew up with no home training, unhinged and macabre af! Probably helps the aura of this movie; the fact that Meloni also starred in the very graphic “Sin City” sequel.

But enough of the past. This trailer is for “Happy!” (based on New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name). The series follows Nick Sax (played by Meloni) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hitman – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt).

Eljay Williams Presents The Soundtrack For His “Pathways” Movie (Mixtape)

Dope movies ought to have dope sounds associated with them, right? Yes. Like this “Pathways” flick. Good movie. Confirmed because the squad saw and approved (you should if you have not already). Now, for the tunes. Listennnn!

All music on this soundtrack either appeared in the film Pathways (Sean’s Lament), has been used to promote the film or has been inspired by the film. These are some of my favorite songs from some of the dope artists I know and were part of my backdrop while writing the film. These artists’ words and sound inspired me and I am grateful that they lent their talents to my dream. Thank you all.
Eljay Williams

Peep the trailer after the jump.

Best. “Black Panther” Teaser. Ever!! (Trailer)

Okay, so Wakanda is not real. But styling its geography, geopolitics, and people makes the “Black Panther” movie real enough to reward watchers for agreeing to suspend disbelief. In other words, we don’t feel stupid for believing in vibranium-fueled fights… in ancient hidden cities laden with high-tech… spaceship-looking flying back-and-forth… bustling cityscapes where many random vehicles, streets and buildings get wrecked…

If the storytelling is good, we will be here for it all. And from what this trailer is showing us, the storytelling is gonna be good.

Action-packed but so ‘real’ and so good! So really good it’s surreal!

Enjoy the trailer thoroughly.

Witness The Horror Of Being ‘Different’ As FOX Puts “The New Mutants” Out Into The X-Men Universe (Trailer)

Prediction: If this goes over well, the X-Men Universe will never be the same.

Check Out This Hilarious Teaser For “White Famous” Starring Jay Pharoah (Trailer)

It’s a fair question, and an old question: Why do WE have to ‘cross over’ to White audiences to be successful? I know it’s been the question asked of entertainers since “The Five Heartbeats” movie. And I am willing to bet a fair amount that Jay Pharoah sneaks in an imitation of Chris Rock in this debut season of his new Showtime series… Rock had me cracking the f*** up when he told Kevin Hart he was just ‘Black Famous’ on “Real House Husbands Of Hollywood” (you can’t CLOSE, Kevin, hahaaa)!

SHOWTIME® presents WHITE FAMOUS, the outrageous new Original Comedy Series starring Jay Pharoah. Comedian Floyd Mooney’s career is about to blow up, but he’s not so sure he’s ready for all that. He doesn’t have time for big egos, crazy studio execs and the wild side of fame. Hollywood is full of phonies but Floyd wants to stay true to himself. Can he make it without losing his soul? Don’t miss WHITE FAMOUS, the insanely funny new comedy from Tom Kapinos, executive producer of Californication, and Academy Award® winner Jamie Foxx, airing Sunday, October 15th 10PM ET/PT only on SHOWTIME®.

Watch The Teaser For “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” (Trailer)

The Force is strong with Rey. We saw that in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That’s why she had to go see Luke Skywalker at the end.

Oops. Hope that was not a spoiler for you… If so, hurry up and catch-up. We have a whole ‘nother Star Wars coming in December! Watch the trailer for “The Last Jedi” (the last chapter for the Jedi??)

This teaser has gotta have viewers thinking, “This is gonna be crazy. Good and crazy!” Watch and figure out your own feelings about it though (above).

Snoop Dogg To Host The Reboot Of The Classic Game Show, “The Jokers Wild” (Trailer)

Okay, I’m thinking TBS might really be onto something. Snoop Dogg on TV as a game show host; not a cook or coach. And this reboot of “The Jokers Wild”… Wow! I would never have seen that coming (but now we know it’s coming, October 24th).

I remember the original game show hosted by Wink Martindale. Trust that this version will be waaay more ‘G’ (pimpin’)!

Denzel Washington Stars As “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” (Trailer)

Yeah. Denzel’s going for another gold statue on this on everything! And you know how sometimes an extended trailer just means Hollywood could not figure out how to cut the footage down to a 45-second teaser? How the extra minute or so was not necessary? Well, you will need to watch every bit of this trailer. It’s a story in and of itself. Teasing an EPIC movie experience (coming this November), featuring a very complex and tortured character that you ‘think’ you know… but you don’t. Watch. Now.

Watch The USA Network’s Official Teaser For “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & The Notorious B.I.G.” (Trailer)

Starring Josh Duhamel, Bokeem Woodbine and Jimmi Simpson, and no longer a ‘long-awaited’ or ‘maybe, strong maybe’… They kept snatching the clips down like someone was ‘hedging’ at the network. But okay. This Biggie-Tupac crime drama series is definitely coming to USA.

Watch the official trailer for Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac & The Notorious B.I.G., a new series coming to USA Network from a director of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

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”).

Watch The Hatchfund Campaign Video For “Yasuke: Birth Of A Samurai” (Trailer)

Dude. DUDE! It’s legend meets line-and-ink in this animated Black Samurai joint in development. Gotta make this happen! If Tom Cruise can be “The Last Samurai,” can we please get the first Black Samurai project greenlit & funded… please?

(Watch above and see how YOU can help, too.)

Lionsgate has put into development, a feature film based on Yasuke’s life, with “Highlander” creator Gregory Widen on board to script the project which they are currently calling “Black Samurai.” Described as an action drama, Mike De Luca and Stephen L’Heureux are producing, and the film is a co-production between Solipsist Films and De Luca Productions.
– Shadow and Act

Good feeling about this. Lionsgate Films AND the dude that brought the Kitana blade-swinging, head-decapitating ‘Duncan MacLeod Of The Clan MacLeod’ to life (Gregory Widen) are already attached. Dope!

A teaser for a video short film that teases an upcoming album. Welcome to 21st-century music release strategy. But hey, it doesn’t have to make a lot of sense, as long as Jhené Aiko is in it being so cute that you sigh involuntarily. Pure science… FACTS!

Yep, this “Blade Runner” reboot is pushing in all the chips. Star-studded cast, as we saw in the trailer we posted earlier (here). And Dave Bautista is featured prominently in this clip.

‘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.

Christian Bale Stars In “Hostiles” (Trailer)

I’ve killed everything that’s walked or crawled. If you do it enough, you get used to it.

Daaayum! The eeriness of dialogue like that, plus the music in this teaser trailer, suggests a hardcore coldness about this movie… regardless of how hot the desert looks or how hot-blooded the fights. This ain’t no regular cowboys-n-injuns flick; more like tensions between Native Americans and uniformed oppressors pushed past the snapping point.

Looks like Christian Bale found a gritty post-Dark Knight role.
