BABY DRIVER trailers finally tease Edgar Wright’s upcoming action comedy

Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver gets two very different trailers

The first trailers (official U.S. and international) for Edgar Wright‘s musically infused action comedy Baby Driver have debuted, and they’re a mixed bag. Meaning, both trailers do their job of previewing the movie, and it looks like fun, but the pair establish such disparate tones that you’d think there was two different cuts of Baby Driver hitting theaters in August. That said, if you weren’t aware this was an Edgar Wright affair, there’s nothing outstanding that drips with his style enough to immediately be recognizable. That’s both intriguing and disconcerting, especially when you hear a beat or two pulled straight from paint-by-numbers “good guy in a bad spot” type movies. Wright has yet to let film fans down though, so here’s hoping Baby Driver sits nicely atop his director’s resume.

Watch both trailers for Baby Driver, read a short plot synopsis, and check out the first poster for the movie after the jump.

New ALIEN: COVENANT trailer and prologue short film continue to tease the terror

Xenomorphs are officially back in new Alien: Covenant trailer

A brand new trailer for Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant hit yesterday, and fans of the franchise are breathing a collective sigh of relief while simultaneously letting out giddy gasps in anticipation. If Logan is the Wolverine movie fans have been waiting for, Alien: Covenant appears to be the Scott-directed xenomorph follow-up Alien die-hards have wanted since he introduced the acid-for-blood bugs way back in 1979. Personally, I’m loving everything I’ve seen so far, but this newest trailer gets a bit…spoilery/silly/too much…there in the end. Maybe it’s just me.

Also premiering recently, a short film titled “Prologue: Last Supper” sets a more comfortable tone while introducing James Franco’s captain and letting us see a few more faces from the crew. It’s a nice introduction to the humans we’ll see on screen before they’re all brutally killed, so consider it a cherry on top of the new trailer.

Give the brand new trailer for Alien: Covenant and the short prologue film a watch after the jump.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING trailers remind us Peter Parker is still a kid

First Spider-Man: Homecoming trailers swing in and look promising

The first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel’s highly anticipated Spider-Man standalone film, finally swung in last night courtesy of Jimmy Kimell Live! The tone is less bombastic than previous Marvel ensembles, which is to be expected, but there’s a nice hint of coming of age and an unwritten Birdman joke in there somewhere. Personally, I’m not frothing at the mouth like some fans, but the movie looks like it could be the (third) rebirth of Spider-Man that finally sticks. Who knows what kind of witchcraft and deals with the devil went on behind closed doors for Marvel to finally get their hands on the property. Regardless of the behind-the-scenes canoodling, filmgoers are grateful.

Watch the first official Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, check out the international trailer, and read a plot synopsis for the film after the jump.

New KONG: SKULL ISLAND trailer reveals Kong isn’t the only monster on the island

Second Kong: Skull Island trailer sets a crazy, creepy tone

Kong: Skull Island swooped in with a new trailer late last night to introduce us to the big bad monsters inhabiting the island with the iconic ape. The movie is dripping with style, which is generating mixed reactions, but I’m personally loving the look and feel of this reboot. Lots of saturated colors, plenty of jaw-dropping moments, and a cast that’s capable of elevating even the strangest material. All signs point to Kong: Skull Island being a blast, but we’ll have to wait until it hits theaters next spring before we can be sure.

Check out the brand new Kong: Skull Island trailer and see two new posters for the movie after the jump.

GHOST IN THE SHELL full-length trailer introduces a cyborg Scarlett Johannson

Scarlett Johannson questions her identity in first Ghost in the Shell trailer

Ghost in the Shell (1995) is a hallmark of animation, so fans of the source material have been wary to say the least concerning the upcoming live-action adaptation starring Scarlett Johansson. The first trailer for the movie just debuted, and internet attitudes are still mixed. For one, the “whitewashing” of the main character played by Johannson caused some controversy, and personally I’m still not sure how I feel about her embodying the iconic cyborg The Major. Additionally, diehards are worried Ghost in the Shell is going to be another generic Americanization/barebones adaptation of the multi-layered source material. Only time will tell if the live-action remake pays off and finds an audience, but at least it doesn’t look terrible at this point.

Watch the first full-length Ghost in the Shell trailer, read a short plot synopsis, and check out a poster for the movie after the jump.
