New READY PLAYER ONE trailer looks like a nostalgic video game cutscene wet dream

Spielberg’s Ready Player One adaptation teased in first trailer

The newest trailer for Stephen Spielberg’s upcoming adaptation of Ernest Cline’s divisive sci-fi ’80s nostalgia novel just dropped today, and it’s something. Cline’s book received as much praise as it did punishment for being what boils down to Willy Wonka’s Wild Ride of Nostalgia. A large portion of the book involved callbacks to toys, games, movies, and just about anything you can think of from the ’80s brought back to life through the OASIS–a virtual reality video game world. I didn’t hate or love the book, but the callbacks and nods were a bit heavy-handed at times (one of the main plot point challenges saw the protagonist reenact the entirety of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off). That said, I have friends who absolutely loved the book and the world Cline created/adapted. Whether you’re a fan or a skeptic, Spielberg’s adaptation is hitting theaters next March. The first/sneak peek trailer came out of Comic Con earlier this year.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR trailer brings everyone together for the first/last time

Avengers: Infinity War trailer sees Thanos collecting Infinity Stones

The first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War was teased yesterday, and it was released early this morning to as much fanfare as you’d expect for a movie and an ensemble event this long in the making. Can you believe it’s almost been ten years since the first Iron Man movie came out? Guess it pays off to properly plan and execute a franchise of this magnitude (lookin’ at you, DC). This movie is going the make so much money and so many fans cream their pants in delight when it finally hits theaters next May. What can one say about Avengers: Infinity War that hasn’t been said? I’ve already seen trailer breakdowns and Kevin Smith’s reaction, and countless websites are going to pore over every second of this “teaser” trailer for the rest of the week/month/year. The movie comes to us after a decade of world building, with so many meticulously placed pieces all adding up to the biggest, baddest Marvel movie to-date. You know if you’re butt’s going to be front and center on opening day or if this superhero hubbub just isn’t your thing. So, again, what more needs to be said?

Check out the first trailer for Avengers: Infinity War after the jump in case you missed it this morning or just need to watch and re-watch it before you call it a night. You’ll also find a plot synopsis and the Infinity War poster that Tom Holland “accidentally” revealed the other day.

TOMB RAIDER 2018 gets its first action-packed, video game reminiscent trailer

Tomb Raider trailer reboots the movie in the vein of the game reboot

Tomb Raider 2018 is another movie in a long line of hopefuls that attempts to “be the first successful video game adaptation,” which is always a strange slot for a new film to occupy. Assassin’s Creed recently tried and fell flat on its face, even with the help of Michael Fassbender, and there have been so many more before Tomb Raider that they’re just not worth counting (I guarantee someone, somewhere, has counted every single game-turned-movie adaptation). Unfortunately, Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) doesn’t have the audience pull of Fassbender, yet she’s taken up the Lara Croft mantle, and the Tomb Raider game franchise barely seems to keep knocking the last nail from the coffin with each new iteration. Reboots upon reboots upon “hey look a top-down weird/kind of cool one.” With that in mind, I think anyone would be hard-pressed to root for Tomb Raider the movie 2018 TM with 100% gusto, and the first trailer for the film does little the raise anticipation levels.

Judge for yourself, and check out the first trailer for Tomb Raider after the jump.

THE SHAPE OF WATER new red band trailer teases del Toro’s strange fantasy fairytale

shape of water movie trailer 2017

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water trailers are full of wonder and weird

The Shape of Water is Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming thriller/fantasy/fairytale, and if the trailers are any indication we can expect del Toro’s iconic stamp of surreal innocence and naive danger. A new red band trailer just debuted, which is red band for language for the most part, but the film’s R rating makes me optimistic that the director will continue to dig into the shadows in a way that only he manages to pull off. Del Toro always seems to be climbing his own Mountain of Madness toward more mainstream success (Blade, Hellboy, Pacific Rim), but it’s like he’ll drop something crazy and unique and then slide back down the mountain for a while. The Shape of Water looks great, but I don’t see it catapulting him back up to the peak where I think he’d like to be in order to bring some of his more outrageous Lovecraft ideas to life.

Watch both the first full-length and the new red band trailers for The Shape of Water after the jump.

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE trailer replaces the board with a Nintendo

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle trailer takes a Tron turn

The first trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the upcoming remake/reboot no one really wants but we’re all curious about, was released a while ago but is worth checking out if you haven’t seen it yet. I’m late to the party, and I remember cocking an eyebrow and filing this trailer away in June when I first gave it a watch. The remake/reboot/sequel(?) sees the iconic board game turned into a Nintendo-like video game and updated for a new generation. Instead of wooden pieces and real-world wildlife, it looks like this time around we’re being immersed in a virtual reality-type, body transfer…thing. Check out the trailer and you’ll see what’s going on.

Watch the first trailer for 2017’s Jumanji, read a plot synopsis, and glimpse a poster for the movie after the jump.
