THE MUMMY trailer aims to revive a classic with the help of Tom Cruise


Watch the first trailer for Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible – The Mummy

The first trailer for The Mummy, Universal’s classic monster movie reboot, flew in yesterday. Tom Cruise runs, screams, and crashes through the trailer in true Cruise/Mission: Impossible fashion, and it’s hard not to paint the film in broad action/adventure strokes at first glance. For one, the movie’s director is Alex Kurtzman (of Kurtzman/Orci fame), who has a tendency to deliver enjoyable-but-wanting blockbusters as a writer/producer. Also, you just can’t mistake the how-did-he-survive-that tumbling that Cruise is famous for, and it’s on full display in the first trailer for The Mummy. I’m not sold quite yet, but we’ve definitely come a long way since the Brendan Fraser-led slapstick adventure of the late ’90s.

Whether you’re curious about the movie or simply won’t miss a new Cruise blockbuster, watch the first full-length trailer for The Mummy after the jump.



GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 second full-length trailer shoots for humor


Baby Groot and Drax steal the show in new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is shaping up to be one of the most enjoyable Marvel movies to hit the big screen, which is saying a lot given the nature of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in general. A brand new full-length trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just dropped, and it does a great job of reminding us why we love the film’s two alien oddballs (Drax and Groot). Humor is the name of the game in this new trailer, with eye-popping action backgrounding some laugh-out-loud moments, and I personally can’t wait for this movie to hit theaters next May. It just looks like so much fun.

New KONG: SKULL ISLAND trailer reveals Kong isn’t the only monster on the island


Second Kong: Skull Island trailer sets a crazy, creepy tone

Kong: Skull Island swooped in with a new trailer late last night to introduce us to the big bad monsters inhabiting the island with the iconic ape. The movie is dripping with style, which is generating mixed reactions, but I’m personally loving the look and feel of this reboot. Lots of saturated colors, plenty of jaw-dropping moments, and a cast that’s capable of elevating even the strangest material. All signs point to Kong: Skull Island being a blast, but we’ll have to wait until it hits theaters next spring before we can be sure.

Check out the brand new Kong: Skull Island trailer and see two new posters for the movie after the jump.



BEAUTY AND THE BEAST live-action adaptation debuts its first full-length trailer


Emma Watson enchants in first Beauty and the Beast trailer

Beauty and the Beast finally has a full-length trailer to wash us in nostalgia and anticipation. Personally, I felt that nostalgia bullet shoot straight to the heart during a few pulled-straight-from-the-original moments you can see in the trailer, and this live-action adaptation looks very promising. For one, the talent involved is exceptional, from the voice acting to the live-action players. Fans of the 1991 classic will love the first trailer for 2017’s Beauty and the Beast, and there’s a very good chance the movie itself will win over fans both new and old when the movie hits theaters next spring. The trailer looks beautiful, somehow it manages to hit all the right notes, and even though I know how it unfolds I can’t wait to give the movie a watch and enjoy the magic all over again.

GHOST IN THE SHELL full-length trailer introduces a cyborg Scarlett Johannson


Scarlett Johannson questions her identity in first Ghost in the Shell trailer

Ghost in the Shell (1995) is a hallmark of animation, so fans of the source material have been wary to say the least concerning the upcoming live-action adaptation starring Scarlett Johansson. The first trailer for the movie just debuted, and internet attitudes are still mixed. For one, the “whitewashing” of the main character played by Johannson caused some controversy, and personally I’m still not sure how I feel about her embodying the iconic cyborg The Major. Additionally, diehards are worried Ghost in the Shell is going to be another generic Americanization/barebones adaptation of the multi-layered source material. Only time will tell if the live-action remake pays off and finds an audience, but at least it doesn’t look terrible at this point.

Luc Besson’s Valerian movie adaptation debuts its first stellar trailer

Today’s big trailer drop is Luc Besson’s long-awaited adaptation of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. Besson has been vocal about his love for the original graphic novel Valerian and Laureline, a love that started early in the director’s life, so it’s great to see him get his chance to bring the material to the big screen. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets may be a mouthful, but after watching the first trailer it wouldn’t surprise me if more film fans became acquainted with the property soon. My curiosity is peaked, that’s for sure, and Valerian looks like everything one could hope for from a Mass Effect movie. Granted, this is no Mass Effect, and comparisons to Besson’s The Fifth Element are a given, so here’s hoping we get a uniquely entertaining film the likes of which only our buddy Luc can deliver.
