PASSENGERS trailer sees Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence flirt with each other in a space station

Passengers trailer reveals a romance and robot hijinks

The movie media was aflutter when the first trailer for Passengers dropped earlier this week, and for good reason. The movie, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence as lonely space travelers, previews a love story in space between two of today’s most watchable A-listers. Personally, I’m still on the fence between being on board and rolling my eyes at both the talent and the trailer, but Passengers looks like it could find a strong audience come December. It’s an end-of-the-year romantic sci-fi movie starring Pratt and Lawrence, so it’s bound to put more than a few butts in theater seats. From the trailer, looks like we’re in for some robot flirting, an explosion or two, and some kind of twist plot reveal as hinted at by Pratt’s final line in the trailer, “There’s a reason we woke up early.”

Watch the first trailer for Passengers and check out the poster and plot synopsis after the jump.

First FREE FIRE trailers preview Ben Wheatley’s funny freaky shoot ’em up bottle movie

Free Fire trailers see A-list stars shooting each other

Free Fire flew in under my radar somehow, and the first trailers for the movie make it look like a must-watch. Seriously, how did I not know this movie was on its way? It looks like the lovechild of early Guy Ritchie and Quentin Tarantino films, and Free Fire is receiving a lot of praise after it’s recent Toronto Film Festival debut. I’m sold. We don’t get enough of this kind of movie, and if the trailers are any indication, this thing is 90 minutes of awesome. The talent involved, the apparent premise, and all the whacky in-betweens make for a nice little package, and I’m ready to unwrap it in theaters sometime next year!

Watch the red band and UK trailers for Free Fire and check out the first poster after the jump.

(Books) FIREFLY: THE GORRAMN SHINIEST LANGUAGE GUIDE AND DICTIONARY IN THE ‘VERSE from Titan Books

Browncoats will love this Firefly language guide and dictionary

Titan Books does a great job compiling books that complement all kinds of film and television fan favorites, and their latest look into Joss Whedon’s sci-fi/western crossover classic is an essential bookshelf addition for every Browncoat. Firefly: The Gorramn Shiniest Language Guide and Dictionary in the ‘Verse reads like an encyclopedia of slang thrown around by the folks in the show, and I had a lot of fun flipping through the pages and re-acquainting myself with the flowery dialect Whedon gave his characters. Whether you’re a die-hard fan, a new convert, or someone who hasn’t quite taken the plunge yet, the book is an excellent way to fall in love all over again.

Take a peek inside and read a little more about Firefly: The Gorramn Shiniest Language Guide and Dictionary in the ‘Verse after the jump.

ARRIVAL trailer teases a subtle alien invasion movie starring Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner

First trailer for Dennis Villeneuve alien movie Arrival

The first full-length trailer for the Dennis Villeneuve-directed alien invasion movie Arrival swept through the internet recently, and it teases a less blow-em-up type of extraterrestrial encounter. Just like vampires and werewolves, alien blockbusters tend to come around in cycles, and every time mainstream audiences jump on the bandwagon a few “smaller” extraterrestrial contenders sneak through the cracks. Arrival looks like it’ll be one of those, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Average Joe blockbuster popcorn-munchers walk out disappointed having expected a more generic movie. Here’s hoping Villeneuve (the director of Prisoners and Sicario) can mix his gravitas and tension with sci-fi for an out of this world movie experience.

I’m not 100% sold yet, but the movie definitely has me curious. Watch the first full-length trailer for Arrival, read a plot synopsis, and check out the poster for the movie after the jump.
