The trailer for Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters finally arrived a couple of days ago, offering our first look at the new team in action and instantly establishing Kate McKinnon as the film’s MVP. Most people seem pretty divided on the trailer, with some criticizing the lengthy first look for lacking a bit of punch. Fan edits are rarely better than the stuff they’re manipulating, but this new cut of the Ghostbusters trailer feels a little more effective than Sony’s official version.
Although J.J. Abrams has repeatedly asserted that 10 Cloverfield Lane is not a direct sequel to Cloverfield, the two films do share some DNA, including the revival of Bad Robot's interactive viral marketing. This new IMAX poster not only indulges the studio's fondness for hidden clues and little easter eggs, but also features a very clever design.
Team Cap or Team Iron Man is the biggest question of the year (you know, aside from the presidential election, which is sort of a big deal). Forget Batman and Superman and the X-Men and Apocalypse — Captain America: Civil War is going to really shake things up. In keeping with the film's government (and anti-government) theme, Marvel has released two new poster images inviting you to — no surprise here — choose a side.
You may be thinking, "Hey, didn't a movie about a younger Barack Obama just premiere at Sundance?" You would be correct — but unlike Southside With You, which centered on the first date between Barack and Michelle Obama, the upcoming film Barry focuses more on Barack pre-Michelle. Newcomer Devon Terrell will play the younger Obama, with The Witch breakout star Anya Taylor-Joy in the key role of a college friend.
Like last year’s Omaze charity campaign for Star Trek Beyond, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’s partnership with the organization has yielded some similarly charming results. The latest video promoting the charity drive features Ben Affleck surprising fans during the Warner Bros. Studio Tour, with the actor hiding out in the new Batmobile and interacting with the crowd — and throwing some shade at Superman, obviously.
Despite the existence of The Lazarus Effect, Sony is still moving forward with their remake of Flatliners. As announced last fall, Ellen Page will lead the redo of the 1990 sci-fi classic, and if you assumed the lack of news about the forthcoming project implied that Page would be playing all the roles herself, Malkovich-style, you were wrong — today brings word that Page will not be alone, as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story star Diego Luna has joined her for Flatliners.
Lucasfilm released an announcement video a couple of weeks ago to kick off production on Star Wars: Episode VIII, showing just a tiny glimpse of footage that made it look as if Rian Johnson was picking up where J.J. Abrams left off. If you had any doubts that Episode VIII would begin where The Force Awakens ends, Daisy Ridley has confirmed that this is definitely the case — and that Luke Skywalker will have much more to do this time around.
Tickets for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be available on February 29 (that’s tomorrow, FYI), with the movie hitting theaters about a month later, on March 25. Disney is banking on similarly huge business for Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book, as the studio has officially launched ticket pre-sales as of today, even though the film doesn’t hit theaters for another two months. If that isn’t enough to get your attention, then maybe this new TV spot will.
Following in the footsteps of previous unlimited passes for films like Spectre and Interstellar, Regal is offering a fans a chance to see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as many times as they want (or until their brains melt and there’s nothing left but the hollow shell of a person). There is a catch, of course: There’s a limited number of these special passes, which will allow you to see Zack Snyder’s superhero epic as frequently as you’d like during the film’s entire theatrical run.
Much has been made of the diversity in the new era of Star Wars, with J.J. Abrams smartly casting the franchise’s first black and female leading characters in John Boyega’s Finn and Daisy Ridley’s Rey. They weren’t the only diverse part of The Force Awakens, which boasted a noticeably varied assortment of genders and ethnicities in its supporting and extras casting, but many fans are still wondering when — or if — we might see an openly gay character in the newly inclusive franchise. According to J.J. Abrams, it will happen, and soon.
There have been rumors since last fall that one particularly slimy character from the original Ghostbusters film would be returning for Paul Feig’s new film, seemingly confirmed by an IMDb credit. But then Feig went and did what J.J. Abrams tried to do with that whole Khan / Star Trek Into Darkness thing — he flat-out denied it, even though this was a pretty viable rumor about a character we all sort of expected would appear. Guess what? The rumor was true, and Ghostbusters star Michael K. Williams has confirmed it himself.
By dubbing their latest sci-fi thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane, Bad Robot has done two things: They’ve made sure that fans will flock to see this thing, but they’ve also set expectations a bit high for a film that wasn’t originally connected to Cloverfield. And although J.J. Abrams says that this movie is merely a “blood relative,” the marketing isn’t doing anything to distinguish 10 Cloverfield Lane from its (sorta-kinda) predecessor. But Abrams would still really, really like you to know that these movies are not as related as the title would blatantly suggest.
