Ethan Hunt returns in the Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One Teaser!


Holy Cow! On Twitter, Christopher McQuarrie dropped the teaser trailer for Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning – Part One and there’s just so much to unpack here. Lorne Balfe reunites with McQuarrie on the score and I’m loving the piece that plays in this trailer. It looks like almost everyone from Mission: Impossible Fallout are back, and some new faces are present with Haley Atwell joining the fray. It’s also interesting to see Henry Czerny back in the mix. If the Fast and Furious movies have taught us anything, it’s that you can always find a use for a character you thought you shelved. Wow, it’s just a teaser, and it’s only Part One! I’m pretty excited for this.

Rebecca Hall defends her family in the Resurrection Trailer!


“Impede my mission once more and I will beat you until you are dead.” I swear, I’ll never forget that line, especially coming from Rebecca Hall.

Showcased in this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Andrew Semans’ Ressurection is set to release in theatres by IFC Films and will also appear on Shudder. Rebecca Hall (Passing, Iron Man 3)gave a wild performance as Margaret, a woman revisited by someone (Tim Roth, The Hateful Eight) with a secret that can tear her family apart. The lengths to which Margaret goes to protect her daughter takes her to some extremes. This was one of four films I saw during Sundance’s VOD showings, and I’m looking forward to seeing it again.

Resurrection will be released in theatres on August 5th and then on Shudder soon after.

Everything is Blue in the Avatar: The Way of Water Teaser


Anyone who saw Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness was treated to the Teaser Trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water. This one shocked me because it picked up a bit of applause in the theatre. After all, it’s been 13 years. Not that anyone ever asked for a sequel (or 2 more), I get the feeling Cameron has faith in himself and his crew.

Two things really stood out for me with this teaser. One, Mech-Spiders fixing buildings, what are those?! Two, is that Simon Franglen’s score playing? It’s nice, and with James Horner gone (and missed), I’m hoping the rest of it will be good.

Taking place some time after the first story, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) have a family now, and we’ll get to see Pandora’s watery depths. Supposedly, Cameron’s been pushing for upgrades in 3D technology, so it’ll be interesting to find out what advances have happened in a decade.

Avatar: The Way of Water is set for a December release.

Netflix surprises with the Love Death+Robots Vol 3 Trailer


I absolutely love Love Death + Robots! Since the first Volume aired, I’ve been hooked on this series, which is produced by David Fincher. It feels like a mix between The Animatrix and MTV’s Liquid Television (which spawned Aeon Flux). I’ve been a bit out of the mix, so I forgot this was in production. Nine new short animated pieces using various styles will air when Vol 3 drops May 20, exclusively on Netflix.

Cronenberg returns to Cannes with the Crimes of the Future teaser!


David Cronenberg’s been keeping busy with his latest, Crimes of the Future. It looks like Existenz, but with major upgrades. The film stars Academy Award Nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, A History of Violence), Léa Seydoux (No Time to Die), and Academy Award Nominee Kristen Stewart (Spencer). I can’t begin to understand what the plot’s about, but given it’s Cronenberg, we’re all in.

Crimes of the Future will compete in this years Cannes Film Festival for the coveted Palm d’Or.

The Marcel The Shell With Shoes On trailer takes us on an adventure.


I’ll admit, watching the trailer for A24’s Marcel The Shell With Shoes, I was a little amused. The story of a Shell looking to find their family is cute, but once Phil Collins’ “Take Me Home” kicked in, I was hooked. A24 is known for being weird, and this doesn’t look like it’ll disappoint.

Marcel The Shell With Shoes On stars Jenny Slate (Zootopia), Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel), and Isabella Rossellini (Death Becomes Her), and will be released this June.

Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck take some deep breaths in the Deep Water Teaser


On the surface, Deep Water just looks like “The movie Ben and Ana did during Lockdown”, but with Adrian Lyne’s name attached to this, I’ve had a double take. Lyne is responsible for Flashdance, 9 1/2 Weeks, Indecent Proposal and Unfaithful. I’m curious about where this one is going. Judging from the heavy breathing, it seems this couple is good at giving tummy tickles.

Deep Water premieres on Hulu on March 18th.

Sam Neill and Laura Dern return in the Jurassic World Dominion Trailer!


It looks like life found a way yet again to bring us another Jurassic World film. This time around, the dinosaurs appear to be out and everywhere on the planet. It’s like someone at Universal saw Mission Impossible: Fallout and said “How about we try all of that, but with Dinosaurs?!”

Motorcycle chases? Check, now with dinos.

Issues on a flight? Check, now with dinos.

I’ll admit though that I’m excited for this one. I’ve always wanted to see a Jurassic Park scenario where Dinosaurs reached the mainland, and The Lost World was possibly the closest we had there. It’s also cool to see that Blue (everyone’s favorite Raptor) has a little one of her own!

This third film brings back both Sam Neill and Laura Dern, reprising their roles as Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler. Jeff Goldblum and B.D. Wong are back as well with the Jurassic World cast, Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Isabella Sermon, Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith, and Omar Sy. Dichen Lachman (Netflix’s Altered Carbon) and Mamoudou Athie (Underwater) are new to the series.

Jurassic Park Dominion premieres in theatres June 10, with Colin Trevorrow returning as Director.

Alex Skarsgard seeks vengeance in Robert Eggers’ The Northman Trailer!


Robert Eggers is back with another film, and I couldn’t be more excited for it. I’m a little surprised that The Northman isn’t under A24 like his other films. This time, Eggers is working with Focus Features and Universal.

Look at this cast: Alexander Skarsgârd (Godzilla vs. Kong), Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos), Claes Bang (Netflix’s Dracula), Willem Dafoe (Eggers’ The Lighthouse), Anya Taylor-Joy (Eggers’ The Witch), Ethan Hawke (The Black Phone) and Bjork (Dancer in the Dark). Much like Conan, The Northman follows a man hellbent on avenging his father’s death.

The Northman releases in theatres April 22.

The Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore trailer changes our villain again!


Ah, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter returns! With all of the controversy surrounding the Johnny Depp/Amber Heard breakup, Warner Bros. made a switch and now Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) is our new Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore! What is it with Mikkelsen playing sorcerers hell bent on destroying things? This is becoming a trend.

This third act has our hero, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) and his friends out to stop Grindelwald before he can do more damage. As a prequel to the Potter stories, I’m pretty sure they’ll succeed, but how they get there is important. Though I’m not particularly excited for this, having Mads on board is never a bad thing.

Returning are Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Jude Law, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler and Ezra Miller.

The film will be available in theatres in April 2022.
