Must Watch: First Trailer for 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'

Batman v Superman Trailer

"Miracles don't come from hell beneath us. No, they come from the sky." It's time! Feast your eyes on the very first footage from Zack Snyder's highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, where we will finally see Batman fight Superman. After the teaser trailer leaked online early via bootlegs (which we don't condone watching!), Zack Snyder tweeted that the first full trailer is now here and fans will get a special IMAX trailer at the preview events on Monday. Henry Cavill returns as Superman, Ben Affleck plays Batman, and we don't see much elese, but it is a rather dark and epic first tease at what is to come. This is just a teaser but I like what we're seeing, even though it's a much different tone than Marvel. Enjoy!

Bryan Singer Reveals Lucas Till Back as Havok in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'

Lucas Till

It's getting to the point that X-Men: Apocalypse isn't going to have enough screen time for all the mutants who are slated to appear in the film, and it just so happens that one more has been added to the cast. Director Bryan Singer has taken to Instagram yet again to reveal that franchise star Lucas Till, who played the mutant Havok in a pivotal supporting role in X-Men: First Class and a brief appearance in X-Men: Days of Future Past, will be back for the next film in the mutant franchise. There's no indication as to how involved he'll be in this sequel, but this addition really has the potential to make things interesting.

Watch: Full Trailer for Rick Famuyiwa's Spectacular Indie Hit 'Dope'

Dope

"Nobody's gonna suspect a thing. We're just geeks, doing what geeks do." After a unique and stylish teaser trailer for the indie sensation Dope surfaced earlier this year, the full trailer finally lays out the story for those unsure what kind of movie to expect. What's cool, is that while the trailer definitely shows us what the movie is about, it also adds some of that style we saw in the first trailer with some cool graphics overlaying footage from the movie. This is truly a gem from Sundance this year, and it's undoubtedly a breakthrough performance for Shameik Moore in the lead and the start of a bright future for diector Rick Famuyiwa.

Watch: The Discarded Image's Video Essay on 'Jaws' Beach Scene

Jaws Beach Scene

Think you know everything about Steven Spielberg's style? Think again. We've already seen and posted a shot-by-shot analysis of Jaws before (view that one here), but this latest one breaks down and analyzes the filmmaking techniques Spielberg used in one particular scene in his shark thriller classic Jaws (released in 1975). Specifically, Julian Palmer takes a look at the early beach attack scene in Jaws, where the young boy gets eaten. It's a detailed analysis (perhaps over-analysis) but includes very intelligent references that will allow anyone to understand how beautifully this scene is crafted, and just how talented Spielberg really is. There's always more to learn about filmmaking techniques from films old and new, so always keep watching.

'Star Wars' is No Longer About the Rebel Alliance Versus the Empire

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

In the original Star Wars trilogy, the battle was always between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire. But after the events of Return of the Jedi, it looked like the Empire was finally defeated. However, as we've seen in the most recent trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, about 30 years after the second Death Star was destroyed, there are still remnants of the Empire, complete with new stormtroopers, including a bad ass chome stormtrooper with a cape, and a mysterious new villain named Kylo Ren. Well, thanks to an exhibit at Star Wars Celebration, we have information where the Rebels and the Empire stand.

James Corden & Michael Douglas Remake Iconic 'Basic Instinct' Scene

Basic Instinct with James Corden

Fresh new late night host James Corden has only been at the reigns of "The Late Late Show" for a few weeks, but his schtick has already become clear. After reenacting the entire filmography of Tom Hanks in under eight minutes and also doing some Pretty in Pink lip syncing with Jon Cryer reprising his iconic role as Duckie, this time Corden had Michael Douglas on as a guest, which prompted the late night host to dress up in drag and perform the iconic interrogation scene from Basic Instinct. For all those squinting for nudity when Sharon Stone uncrossed her legs in the film, you'll want the exact opposite this time.

So Far 'Terminator: Genisys' is Just a 'Terminator' Franchise Mash-Up

Terminator: Genisys

It's no secret that we haven't been impressed with what we've seen from Terminator: Genisys so far. Even with the most recent trailer revealing a big plot twist (watch the trailer right here), it all just seems desperate to shake up a franchise that seems to have peaked with Terminator 2: Judgment Day. And why is that? Well, a new video examines why this latest iteration of the Arnold Schwarzenegger action franchise may feel so stale and tired. Basically, it's just a carbon copy of every other Terminator movie, and not just because of the obvious homages. You'll what I mean after you check out this video. Watch below!

Watch: Matthew McConaughey Reacts to the New 'Star Wars' Trailer

Matthew McConaughey

There's no doubt that yesterday's second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens really moved fans of the sci-fi saga, especially with that final shot featuring two of our favorite heroes. Social media was full of people overwhelmed with feelings and joy, and apparently so was Matthew McConaughey. A reaction video has surfaced showing McConaughey watching the teaser trailer for the first time, and it's pretty clear that he's a huge Star Wars fan. There's plenty of people who got emotional, but McConaughey's reaction is on another level. He even went so far as to watch the trailer from space. He's just that dedicated.

Check Out the R2-D2-Painted Boeing 787 Airplane from All Nippon

R2D2 Airplane

Bleep! Bloop! Bleep! Translation: come fly to Japan on my airplane! Holy crap this is… awesome? Yea, I'm going to say it is. One of the big reveals this week at Star Wars Celebration, along with the new trailer for The Force Awakens, is a brand new R2-D2-painted Boeing 787 commercial airplane. We've seen Smaug the Airplane, now it's R2's turn. The new aircraft will be part of All Nippon Airways fleet, based out of Japan, and it will be launching in fall 2015 (a bit closer to the release of The Force Awakens). The plane is being shown off in videos at their booth, but we found nice clean shots of it in flight. I'll take a ticket, please.

Steve Carell Joins Robert Zemeckis' Adaptation of 'Marwencol' Doc

Steve Carell

Back in 2013 we learned that Cast Away and Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis was going to be at the helm of Marwencol, an adaptation of the documentary of the same name which played South by Southwest and won the Best Documentary award. At the time, Zemeckis was hoping to get Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role as Mark Hogancamp, a man who decides to build a a one-sixth scale model of a World War II-era town called Marwencol in his backyard. However, The Wrap reports it will be Steve Carell signing on for the lead role in the film written by Edward Scissorhands scribe Caroline Thompson.
