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.

Everyone might be a replicant in the new New Blade Runner 2049 trailer

A brand new full-length trailer for Blade Runner 2049 dropped this morning, further teasing the sequel to Ridley Scott’s sci-fi icon. Thirty-five years later, director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario) aims to advance the story using both fresh and familiar faces. The visual style from the original is present, the trailer’s dripping with tension and uncertainty, and Villeneuve has an impressive track record–all signs point to Blade Runner 2049 being something special. Here’s hoping the movie lives up to the growing hype.

Watch the second trailer (technically first official full-length) for Blade Runner 2049, read a short plot synopsis, and check out two new posters 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.

WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES trailer brings the ape vs. man battle to a head


Caesar leads a guerrilla army in first War for the Planet of the Apes trailer

War for the Planet of the Apes appears to be the climactic end-all battle between man and ape, and the first full-length trailer for the movie has finally been released. It reveals to us a war-ready Woody Harrelson, an increasingly hateful Caesar (Andy Serkis), and what should only ever be described as guerrilla warfare between the two. I was not expecting this movie to look so brutally intense, but I’m completely on board. Director Matt Reeves has shown us he can not only craft a haunting, visceral film (Let Me In), but he’s dabbled in ape territory before with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I’m sure he’s excited to continue the legacy and bring these beasts (both man and ape) into all-out war.

T2: TRAINSPOTTING debuts an exceptional trailer to hype the movie sequel to Danny Boyle’s heroine classic


Boyle’s trademark madness is back with first T2: Trainspotting trailer

T2: Trainspotting hits theaters early next year, and the first trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to Danny Boyle’s heroine staple looks good. Really good. Twenty years ago Boyle brought Irvine Welsh’s novel (Trainspotting) to life in glorious fashion, and twenty years later the director aims to do the same with another from the novelist. T2: Trainspotting is inspired by Welsh’s book Porno, and the trailer hints at a hilarious, violent, drug-fueled reunion for Renton and his pals/enemies. Personally, the first trailer is enough to ensure my ticket when the movie lands in theaters next spring, and I’m excited to see where these characters have been and where they’re going under Boyle’s direction. Sex, drugs, and drama are on the menu, that’s for sure.

Watch the first trailer for T2: Trainspotting and read a poetic plot synopsis for the movie after the jump.
