First ALIEN: CONVENANT trailer gives the gift of xenomorphs this Christmas


Alien: Covenant trailer teases what looks like a soft reboot for Ridley Scott

Ridley Scott is back in R-rated sci-fi territory, and the first trailer for his highly anticipated sequel/prequel movie Alien: Covenant has finally arrived. As an early morning Christmas present even. Not much is revealed regarding plot outside of space truckers get into xenomorph trouble (which some are already calling a soft reboot of the material), but there’s definitely an edge to this first trailer that’s felt missing from the franchise – the trailer is red band for language and presumably blood. That said, fans and filmgoers are already decrying Alien Covenant’s first trailer as giving away too much. If you want to stay completely in the dark as to who gets killed and which characters get infected, sadly, you may want to steer clear of even this first trailer. You’ve been warned.

If you’re hungry for anything Alien and have been waiting to see what Ridley Scott and crew have been cooking up, give the first trailer for Alien: Covenant a watch after the jump. You’ll also find the first poster for the movie as well as a plot synopsis.

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.

First Assassin’s Creed trailer previews the video game movie adaptation

The long-awaited, highly anticipated video game adaptation hope of a movie Assassin’s Creed starring Michael Fassbender finally has a first trailer for us to ogle. Admittedly, I’m not a die-hard Assassin’s Creed fan, but I’ve definitely been watching this movie evolve. Fans and critics alike have been holding their breath and crossing their fingers that the Assassin’s Creed movie will be our first great video game adaptation film, which is a lot to ask for. There’s not much confidence instilled from past game-to-movie attempts, but this year (with both this and Warcraft) could be the one to turn things around.

Watch the first trailer, read a plot synopsis, and check out the poster for Assassin’s Creed after the jump.

New X-MEN: APOCALYPSE poster features villain and four horsemen

X-Men: Apocalypse gets a new poster

Every time new marketing material is released for an upcoming superhero movie, X-Men: Apocalypse drops something small like a poster or teaser to remind us that the movie is still on its way. All eyes are on the DC and Marvel movies that continue to make waves, but Apocalypse continues to throw punches with its attempts to stay in the ring. A brand new poster for X-Men: Apocalypse has popped up today, and it features Apocalypse himself (played by Oscar Isaac) above his four horsemen (Magneto, Storm, Psylocke, and Angel).

What do you think of the poster? If you’re still on the fence about the movie, give the newest trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse another watch.

X-Men: Apocalypse trailer teases the villain and his horsemen

X-Men: Apocalypse finally has a trailer, not to be left behind by this month’s big teaser releases, and Bryan Singer’s fourth mutant movie continues to rebuild and re-imagine the world Singer helped create way back in 2000. Maybe it’s just me, but the X-Men franchise hasn’t been as exciting or in-your-face as most of the other superhero fodder recently, but that could be a good thing.

Watch the first X-Men: Apocalypse trailer, read a plot synopsis, and check out the first poster for the movie after the jump.
