This morning, fans woken to the teaser trailer of the new Power Rangers movie. Check it out below!
The Power Rangers series were originally from Japan (named Super Sentai) which became a hit here in the United States. The movie is a reboot following five teenagers who are gifted with extraordinary powers as they defend Earth from evil forces.
Saban’s Power Rangers hit theaters March 2017.
Yup, that’s right folks. What had been in the news for quite some time (almost a year now) has now been confirmed. After that little teaser Ben Affleck shared with everyone only a couple of weeks ago many speculated that it was only a matter of time before we got news of who would be in the suit as Slade Wilson. DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns confirmed the casting in an interview in which he discusses his role overseeing Warner Bros DCEU franchise.
Manganiello, has been a fan favorite for the casting so it is not surprising that the news is met with mostly positive reception. The groundswell of expectations is rising quickly for Affleck’s standalone Batman film (which he is also the director of) and with this casting it is sure to put even more eyes on the project. I don’t think I can wait for the first action reel putting the two adversaries against each other for the first time on film, but I’m sure my patience will be rewarded when the film is finally released.

The new trailer for the next chapter of the Underworld franchise has been released and it’s looking great.
Blood Wars has a new battle between the vampires and lycans. With Selene (played by Kate Beckinsale) fueled with a personal vendetta, she will stop at nothing to see what is right.
Underworld: Blood Wars hits theaters January 6, 2017.
Mr. Gene Wilder has left the building folks.
The actor known for this roles in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, and The Little Prince to name a few, passed away yesterday due to complications of Alzheimer’s disease. He was 83.
Wilder had been diagnosed three years prior and wanted to keep his condition private. His nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman, stated the reason “more so that the countless young children that would smile or call out to him “there’s Willy Wonka,” would not have to be exposed to an adult referencing illness or trouble and cause delight to travel to worry, disappointment or confusion. He simply couldn’t bear the idea of one less smile in the world.“.
Yesterday Marvel blessed us with our first real look at Doctor Strange. With all the hype over Captain America: Civil War, many forget that this movie could be a real eye-catcher with Benedict Cumberbatch in the leading role as Stephen Strange. But that’s enough for now. Just check out the trailer (and some cool new posters) if you haven’t already.
Though the PR train hasn’t hit full steam yet, some argue it doesn’t need to. Marvel may be a big enough name to carry this movie through at this point. No doubt they’re banking on that being a good thing for this film. Doctor Strange isn’t exactly what you’d call a household name. Let’s hope that changes a bit after the Sorcerer Supreme comes to theaters on November 4, 2016.
The MTV Movie Awards showed off a brand new trailer of the next installment of the Harry Potter film series.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a small novel by Harry Potter author and creator, J.K. Rowling. Based on the year one textbook for Hogwarts students, the book gives information on magicial creatures and beasts. The film follows the beginnings of author and wizard, Newt Scamander (played by actor, Eddie Redmayne) and his beginnings of working with the Ministry of Magic and his travels in the United States.
Check out the trailer below!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters this November.
If you didn’t get enough from the first trailer for Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, then you still probably won’t get enough after this. But what you will get is a nice cameo from a very important character. But don’t take my word for it, hold your breath and check out the video below.
Well it doesn’t get more hype than that. For those weren’t excited enough, I hope this did it for you. And for those who were… Well, hold on just a little bit longer when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
What a quick 180 from a couple of days ago for the Sandman project. It wasn’t but a day ago that news came through that the Sandman movie for New Line Cinema had found its scriptwriter in Eric Heisserer. After taking a big leap forward in the next stages of making this film happen, they take a huge leap back with the departure of Joseph Gordon-Levitt who was set to direct and star in the Live Action adaptation of one of DC/Vertigo’s most enchanting and complex characters in Sandman.
Citing creative differences as the reason for leaving, Gordon-Levitt left a detailed explanation for his fans to read on his Facebook page only moments ago. You can follow the link or read it below.
So, as you might know if you like to follow these sorts of things, a while back, David Goyer and I made a producing deal with Warner Brothers to develop a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s SANDMAN. Neil himself came on as an executive producer, we hired the excellent screenwriter, Jack Thorne, and we started in on the ambitious task of adapting one of the most beloved and boundary-pushing titles in the world of comics. I was pleased with the progress we were making, even though we still had quite a ways to go.
Recently, as you also might know if you like to follow these sorts of things, the sorta “ownership” (for lack of a better term) of the Sandman material changed hands when Warner Brothers shifted the entire catalogue of Vertigo comics (an imprint of DC) to their subsidiary, New Line. And a few months ago, I came to realize that the folks at New Line and I just don’t see eye to eye on what makes Sandman special, and what a film adaptation could/should be. So unfortunately, I decided to remove myself from the project. I wish nothing but the best for the team moving forward.
I’d like to thank all the great people I’ve had the opportunity to work with on this one. I’ve had a blast with and learned a ton from David and Jack. Niija Kuykendall, Greg Silverman, and everyone at Warner Brothers have been fantastic, as have Geoff Johns and everyone at DC. And it’s been a particular privilege as well as a rocking good time getting to know Mr. Gaiman, whose generous insights and masterful work have certainly convinced me that the Lord of Dreams and the Prince of Stories are one and the same Endless pattern.
This sounds like a big blow to New Line Cinema as they will have to find a new director, but it had to be something pretty big for Gordon-Levitt to leave a project he was so invested in from the beginning as a huge Sandman fan himself. Either way, the project looks like it will still continue on but at this point no one has any idea of the direction it will go. Whatever the outcome, as a big consumer of all things Sandman and DC/Vertigo, I will be front and center to see it all play out.
That’s right folks, with the tunes of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody playing in the background you are witnessing a dawning of a new age of superhero movies. With the new Suicide Squad trailer you get a peek of what it looks like when dangerous villains are tasked with becoming unlikely heroes. Well, that and the kind of dysfunction that inevitably will be within the team.
Here in the new trailer we get extended looks at all the major characters including Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and of course the crown prince of evil himself, The Joker.
Whatever hesitations you had about the movie before, I hope some of them have been put to rest for the moment. It’s a fantastic spot and one that was sorely needed after the last major follow-up trailer release from DC (lookin at you BvS). Suicide Squad looks to bring the laughs along with plenty of action.
To find out what Task Force X (that’s the name of the suicide squad for those of you who don’t read comics) is up to and what The Joker may have to do with it all, check out Suicide Squad when it hits theaters on August 6th, 2016.
