Brand new STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI trailer teases a dark, dramatic sequel

New Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer questions Rey and Kylo Ren’s loyalties

A brand new full-length Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer just debuted, and it’s safe to say the long-awaited eighth installment in the originally planned nine-film franchise is high on film fans’ must-watch lists this fall. Comparisons to Empire Strikes Back aside given this one’s in the middle of the three-film current arc, there’s definitely a darker tone and an ominous ending to to new trailer. Loyalties are in question, the death of an iconic character is essentially dangled in our faces, and on the surface it appears Rey and Kylo Ren are joining forces. The Last Jedi’s second full-length trailer is bound to be dissected and put under the microscope even more than the newest Justice League trailer, and there’s plenty of eye-popping, theory-sparking new footage to sink your teeth into. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi-Rey’s Emotional Rollercoaster; Damn Those AT-ATs hits theaters just in time for Christmas, so you’ve got plenty of time to watch and re-watch the new trailer before then.

Check out the brand new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer after the jump.

DOWNSIZING trailer is Matt Damon’s Honey I Shrunk the Kids! world for wealthy adults

Downsizing trailer shrinks Damon and Wiig down to a manageable size

The first trailer for Downsizing dropped mid-month to preview the upcoming Honey I Shrunk the Adults-style overpopulation and responsible budgeting dramedy from director Alexander Payne (Sideways, Nebraska). Imagine a world in which $52,000 is worth $12 million because you’re only a few inches tall and your resource demands are only a fraction of the cost. Sure, shrinking yourself and your financial responsibilities may be exciting and adventurous at first, but I bet the seams start to come apart when the gravity of what you’ve done sets in. That’s the premise of Payne’s Downsizing, an odd movie that sees a tiny Matt Damon scraped off a hospital table by a nurse with a spatula, and I’m curious to say the least.

Watch the first trailer for Downsizing and read a short plot synopsis for the movie after the jump.

READY PLAYER ONE gets its first trailer and teases Spielberg’s anticipated adaptation

Spielberg’s Ready Player One adaptation gets a crazy trailer

Ready Player One made a big splash as a novel in 2011 and found a home in the hearts of ’80s nostalgia enthusiasts the world over. Steven Spielberg, the ’80s nostalgia auteur himself, decided the book was perfect source material for a live-action, big screen adaptation, and the first trailer for his movie proves there will be plenty of in-book references for the director to play with. Personally, I wasn’t smitten by the book, and I felt the ’80s pop culture references were a bit heavy handed at times, but I can imagine a movie adaptation in the hands of Spielberg (and backed by the cast this movie has) being a ton of fun. The trailer teases plenty of recognizable characters and creatures, and the book was packed with enough references to fill a few Spielberg toy boxes, so it’ll be cool to see what makes the cut and what gets left out.

More new Aliens tie-ins from Titan Books

Titan Books has published a respectable collection of various Alien/Aliens-themed novels, movie tie-ins, and fun printed companions to what many consider to be the only worthwhile xenomorph movies (1-4). Not only is the publisher putting out completely new Alien short stories from authors who helped create the extended universe on paper, but Titan keeps churning out making-of and behind-the-scenes art books for movies new and old within the canon. Their latest is The Art and Making of Alien: Covenant, which takes a deep dive into Ridley’s Scott’s newest film. But wait, there’s more. As a few cherries on top of the xenomorph sundae, Titan Books continues to release omnibus collections of handfuls of extended universe novels that have been written over the years, and The Complete Aliens Omnibus: Volume 4 drops later this month. If you’re a fan of the film franchise, the alien itself, the space setting, or the extended universe, you owe it to yourself to dig in to the Alien/Aliens offerings from Titan Books.

Take a peek inside The Art and Making of Alien: Covenant and order your copies of the first three The Complete Alien Omnibus books after the jump.

First KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE trailer is heavy on the action

Kingsman: The Golden Circle trailer delivers the goods

UPDATE: New “official trailer 2” for the movie also included after the jump.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle finally dropped it’s highly anticipated first trailer, and it’s all over the place in terms of setup, action, and surprises. Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed the first Kingsman, but anyone who says the movie didn’t come out of nowhere and throw everyone for a loop is lying. Now, with the sequel, we know what to expect tonally, and the trailer delivers for the most part. Eggsy is back. A few fresh faces are shown. A few old friends rear their heads. Overall, a solid teaser for an oddball sequel to an strange-but-enjoyable film no one saw coming.

Watch the first trailer for Kingsman: The Golden Circle and read a short plot synopsis for the movie after the jump.
