Phase Two begins in first Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials trailer

The first trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, the second film in the between-the-cracks Maze Runner franchise, has finally arrived. Having not read the books, and having reached the beach as most fans rode the post-apocalyptic tween novel wave out to sea, I was pleasantly surprised when I eventually popped The Maze Runner dvd into the player. I enjoyed the first film more than expected, so The Scorch Trials trailer sparks my curiosity as a sequel as well as an expansion on the manipulation and wild world already introduced. I still haven’t read the books, and there’s a good chance I never will, but I’m on board as far as seeing where this film franchise goes. The trailer does a decent job of introducing new characters and more of the scenery and story.

GEEK OUT! BLACK MASS gets a second trailer

Geek Out! is a quick glimpse of something new and cool without a story’s worth of text to wade through.

New Black Mass trailer sets a different tone for Whitey Bulger biopic

The first trailer for Johnny Depp‘s upcoming Whitey Bulger bipoic Black Mass set an ominous tone, and the brand new trailer for the film follows up with something a little more upbeat but just as dangerous. Black Mass looks like a solid crime drama with a strong cast filling in the cracks around Depp’s Bulger ( including Joel Edgerton, Corey Stoll, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Juno Temple, Peter Sarsgaard), and it can’t be said enough how great it is to see the actor wearing his serious shoes once again. They’ve been tucked away somewhere to make room for costumes and outrageous faces, that’s for sure.

With serial roles like Captain Jack Sparrow, his return as the Mad Hatter in Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016), and an always-open role in any Tim Burton project, Depp has been wearing a little thin on more than a few film fan palates. It feels safe to say he needs roles like this, surrounded by heavy hitters like these, to convince once-sold moviegoers that he’s more than a live-action cartoon character. After this, he’s got two sequels on his plate (both from Disney) and nothing else scheduled yet, so only time will tell. Fortunately, Black Mass looks fantastic. If the trailers are any indication, we’re in for a tense mix of modern noir and solid character moments.

Watch the second full-length trailer for Black Mass after the jump. The movie will be the third from director Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Out of the Furnace), and you should be able to catch it in theaters on September 18, 2015.

Peter discovers Neverland’s wonders in new full-length Pan trailer

Director Joe Wright (Hanna, Atonement) has quietly but confidently been revealing his Peter Pan adaptation since last November, and a brand new full-length trailer for Pan flew in this week to preview more of the movie. There’s a strong sense of whimsy and plenty of colorful, high-flying fantasy on display, and a solid cast looks like it could keep this interpretation afloat for a new generation. This time around, Peter is an orphan who’s whisked away to Neverland (a mix of old Mad Max and jungle celebration) where he may be a child of prophecy. While the story isn’t terribly original, I’m on board and wouldn’t mind seeing where the film takes the source material.

Watch the brand new full-length trailer for Pan, and check out a handful of character posters for Hook, Blackbeard, Peter, and Tiger Lily, after the jump.

(Review) My torn MAD MAX: FURY ROAD review

mad max fury road review tom hardy header image

Mad Max: Fury Road is the best mixed bag car chase made in years

The madness that is Mad Max: Fury Road became my most anticipated movie of the year when the first trailer blew away viewers last July, and every trailer since only helped solidify my excitement. As cinematically sacrilegious as it may sound, I hadn’t been as anxious to see a new release based on style alone since Zack Snyder’s 300 made its initial waves, and the media mania surrounding Max Max kept building up an artistic, action-heavy blockbuster the likes of which we’d never seen. On that note, the film succeeds tremendously. It’s the kind of on-screen adrenaline IV Michael Bay’s wet dreams are made of, with enough fire and screaming engine energy to fuel the action of more than a few wannabe comparisons, and you’ll likely be uncurling your fists when the end credits roll. As a cerebral unwinding of A-to-B plot and an unpacking of satisfying character quirks, Fury Road falls a little short. Ninety-percent bombastic bang of a summer blockbuster, nine percent live-action cartoon fringed with unintentional self-parody, and one-percent plot development and dialogue, the movie is going to be seen as the desert car chase masterpiece that defines this summer’s sensational cinema season.
