The trailer for X-Men: Dark Phoenix featuring Sophie Turner as Jean Grey has arrived. The trailer does a great job by showing us quite a bit, but at the same time giving us nothing. 20th Century Fox also released the official synopsis:
In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
Oh yeah, and we have to wait until February 14, 2019 to end the suspense. Check out the trailer above to hold you over until then!
The Lonely Island aka Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone alongside Judd Apatow have presented us with a new film called POPSTAR: NEVER STOP NEVER STOPPING. An obvious and hilarious dig at Justin Bieber, but all for the sake of entertainment. Samberg plays the main role of Conner4Real, a popstar who needs a “village” of people to make him look “dope.”
There are a lot of familiar faces including: Simon Cowell, Sarah Silverman, Bill Hader, Carrie Underwood, Usher, Adam Levine, Snoop Dogg, Seal, Will Arnett and Martin Sheen to just name a few. The trailer says coming soon, but according to IMDB it will be released on June 3, 2016. Can’t wait for this masterpiece of comedy!
“Justin Bieber has his Beliebers and I have my CONNfidants.” -Conner4Real
Brooklyn stars Saoirse Ronan in a 1950’s romantic drama set in both Ireland and New York. Ronan plays Ellis Lacey, an Irish immigrant, who has to choose between two guys she has fallen in love with and who happen to be in two different countries. Sounds complicated. Due out November 6, 2015. Watch the trailer above!
Guillermo del Toro is back with another scare-fest called Crimson Peak. The film stars Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam, Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain. Aside from what you see in the trailer, there is not a detailed plot synopsis yet. We know that Wasikowska plays an author who is enchanted by Hiddleston and then the creepiness ensues. Not much to go off by, but just watching the trailer gives me the heebie jeebies. Watch it above and catch the film when it is released on October 16, 2015.
James Franco continues to crank out the films and we’re not complaining. The cancellation of The Interview is not stopping him anytime soon. The trailer for True Story, based off of the memoir by Michael Finkel, featuring Jonah Hill and Franco was released today and it looks insanely good. Most people recognize Hill and Franco from their comedic films, but both of them have starred in some noteworthy dramas and this looks like one to watch out for! True Story will premiere at Sundance Film Festival next month and have a limited release beginning on April 10, 2015.
Two of my favorites are joining forces: Pitch Perfect and Pentatonix. It was revealed to EW that vocal group, Pentatonix would be joining the cast of the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2 movie. Rejoice, aca-nerds! The group is set to play a rival group to the Barden Bellas and have already filmed their part. This sequel is going to be aca-awesome. Too bad we will all have to wait until 2015 to see it.
Being a major James Franco fan, I always try to keep up with his new releases. The latest, Good People also stars Kate Hudson. Naturally I thought this was going to be a rom-com knowing Hudson’s M.O. Surprisingly though, it is more of a suspense thriller.
Franco and Hudson play a couple who are in debt, but things start looking up when a tenant in their complex is murdered and they discover some major cash in his apartment. However, everything turns for the worse when they find themselves the target of someone who is trying to recover the stolen money. Doesn’t sound too original, but I have hope that Franco and Hudson can make it entertaining. Check it out for yourself above!
