Marvel Studios kicked off the week in style by releasing a brand new trailer for the next entry into their cinematic universe, Black Panther. Directed by Ryan Coogler and featuring Chadwick Boseman reprising his role from Captain America: Civil War, the film will follow the young king’s return to his native land, the technologically advanced nation of Wakanda, and the turmoil that awaits.
The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone has been promising fans a very different sort of superhero movie for his next project, and our first look at next year’s The New Mutants certainly lives up to that promise. Feeling more like a horror movie than a typical comic book adaptation, the film will follow in the footsteps of Deadpool and Logan by trying a new approach to the genre, and this first trailer is already creating plenty of hype.
Before he became the first African-American to serve on the Supreme Court, and before he successfully argued a landmark civil rights case in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was the founder and executive director of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, traveling the countryside and defending black clients who had been falsely accused of crimes based solely on the color of their skin. One such case, practically a footnote in his storied legal career, is explored in Reginald Hudlin’s Marshall.
With a long-overdue big screen adventure for Wonder Woman generating huge box office returns earlier this summer, casual fans who find themselves curious about the superheroine’s real-life origin story may be shocked by what they discover.

It’s been nearly six months since the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and fans have worked themselves into a fever pitch waiting for the next glimpse of footage. Luckily, the wait is over now, with a new trailer for this year’s most anticipated release dropping just a few moments ago. Yesterday, director Rian Johnson said that he was “legitimately torn” on whether or not fans should watch the trailer or avoid seeing any new footage until the film releases – but he also described the new trailer as “gooooood,” and we can confirm that statement.

The release of Pacific Rim Uprising is still several months away, but the first look at the sequel has arrived courtesy of a new feature from Entertainment Weekly, and while the new film may not have Guillermo del Toro behind the camera or Charlie Hunnam in the lead, it boasts the incredibly charismatic John Boyega, which is always a great place to start from.
In an age where Hollywood seems hell-bent on remaking, rebooting and sequelizing nearly every property with a recognizable name, Denis Villeneuve’s stunning Blade Runner 2049 sets a new precedent for the proper way to breathe life back into a decades-old franchise. An engaging and multi-layered detective story with a long list of secrets and surprises, set against the backdrop of a decaying metropolis bathed in fog and neon, this is the Chinatown of science fiction movies – and thanks to the masterful work of cinematographer Roger Deakins, it’s the most gorgeous film of the year.
Riding a wave of critical acclaim from the Toronto International Film Festival, director Joe Wright’s Darkest Hour is headed to theaters right in the midst of awards season, with Gary Oldman’s unrecognizable turn as Winston Churchill earmarked as a huge contender for the Best Actor race.
