KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD trailer previews gutters-to-Camelot epic

king arthur legend of the sword movie trailer 2016

First King Arthur: Legend of the Sword trailer is less Ritchie-infused than expected

There have been more than a few big screen tellings of the King Arthur tale, but this spring Guy Ritchie (Snatch, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) is re-imagining the story in his own style. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword got its first trailer way back in July when it debuted at Comic-Con, but it kind of came and went without making much of a splash. The trailer has been on my list of previews worth sharing, and it’s about time I cleaned up that list. The first trailer really does make the story feel like a Guy Ritchie joint, with quickly revealed plot points and plenty of crazy camera action, so it should be interesting to see what the director can bring to a swords and sandals epic. If anything, Jude Law’s villain Vortigern looks like fun.

Watch the first trailer, read a plot synopsis, and check out the poster for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword after the jump.

New ASSASSIN’S CREED full-length trailer gives off an action-packed Escape from the Spanish Inquisition vibe


Michael Fassbender goes full Spanish Inquisition badass in new Assassin’s Creed trailer

The first trailer for Assassin’s Creed was unfortunately backgrounded by a misplaced Kanye West song, but for the most part it did its job to intrigue moviegoers and re-spark the “will this break the video game adaptation curse” discussion. Any blockbuster with a few familiar faces and a hint of talent behind the camera attracts attention as “the one” that will prove video games are worthwhile investment properties that can be turned into exceptional films. Is Assassin’s Creed that movie? We’ll have to wait and see, but the answer is always subjective. The second official full-length trailer for the movie was just released, and it includes more assassin action and storyline groundwork. Overall, things are looking good for Assassin’s Creed. At least the second trailer doesn’t soil itself with Kanye in the background.

Watch the new Assassin’s Creed trailer and read a plot synopsis for the movie after the jump.

WARCRAFT bloopers and gag reel gets motion capture silly with yucks in Azeroth


Clancy Brown’s gyrating chuckle is the highlight of the Warcraft gag reel

It’s always fun to see behind the scenes through movie bloopers. The gag reel for Warcraft just popped up online, and it’s worth a watch for the cast chuckles and Clancy Brown silliness. I could listen to Clancy Brown talking nonsense as an orc for an hour and never get tired of him having a good time. Other than Brown’s moments, the bloopers highlight a handful of crack ups from most of the cast as well as some motion capture-inspired ridiculousness. There’s fun to be had by all whether you loved or hated the movie.

So, if you want to see Ruth Negga try to land a full-tongue macking on Dominic Cooper, Ben Foster cracking up in full makeup, or Clancy Brown gyrating on a motion capture set, give the blooper reel for Warcraft a watch after the jump.

First NOCTURNAL ANIMALS trailer sets a dark tone for director Tom Ford’s star-studded drama


Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals teases an intricate drama with first trailer

Nocturnal Animals created some buzz a month ago when the first teaser trailer dropped, and since then it coiled back into its quiet corner and waits to strike again in November. Admittedly, I hadn’t heard of the movie before the trailer did a drive-by, which grabbed my attention with the cast involved while it hinted at subtle, dangerous drama underneath. I feel like a film failure, but I’d also never heard of director Tom Ford and haven’t seen his first movie A Single Man, so I don’t know what to expect from Nocturnal Animals. If the cast, tone of the trailer, and early positive review buzz are any indication, the movie is one I won’t want to miss.

I’m playing a little catch-up, so if you’re like me and are intrigued by a dark drama that stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon, and a few more familiar faces, give the the first trailer for Nocturnal Animals a watch after the jump.

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2 trailer teases the return of Keanu Reeves’ badass assassin


Wick’s back in the first John Wick: Chapter 2 teaser trailer

Various quotations and excited sound offs have made the rounds regarding the first John Wick: Chapter 2 teaser trailer. He’s back. Don’t kill the dog this time. With a pencil. The Boogeyman. Oh. They’ve all been used to express fans’ anticipation for the return of Keanu Reeves as John Wick for the sequel to 2014’s unexpected badass assassin introduction. This time around, Wick is helping some old friends and he’s most certainly back in the action, which is all you really need to know. If you loved the first film, you’ll enjoy the first teaser trailer for the second movie. If you couldn’t quite jump on the John Wick bandwagon, I can’t say there’s much more here to win you over.

You know if you’re already sold on John Wick: Chapter 2, so give the trailer a watch, read the plot synopsis, and check out a couple posters for the movie after the jump.
