Watch: Stunning US Trailer for Animated Adaptation of 'The Prophet'

Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet

About one month ago, we featured a beautiful international trailer for an animated adaptation of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, a big screen version of the collection of prose and poems known around the world. Now another gorgeous domestic trailer for the film featuring several different kinds of animation has arrived, all connected by an artist (Liam Neeson), his housekeeper (Salma Hayek), and her daughter (voiced by Quvenzhané Wallis). This looks like it'll be a nice break from the blockbuster action extravaganzas late this summer, with wonderful animation to stimulate your eyes and your mind. There's also supposed to be some great new music from Glen Hansard, Damien Rice and Yo-Yo Ma. Watch below!

Watch: Go Behind the Scenes of George Miller's 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

Mad Max: Fury Road

We now have two weeks until Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters, and just after one final trailer for the big chase blockbuster arrived earlier this week, the first featurette taking us behind the scenes of the bonkers flick has arrived. The action in the trailers promises some mind-blowing stunts, and this featurette shows director George Miller on the desert set, with moving vehicles and all, showing just how berserk this film is going to be. Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and more also offer their thoughts on Miller as a director and hype the film's wonderful chaos. The more I see, the more excited I get to see this flick. Watch!

Watch: First Trailer for Creepy Sleep Paralysis Doc 'The Nightmare'

The Nightmare

"It's a kind of horror that is worse than like in the movies." One of the most terrifying films of the year won't be a horror film that Hollywood cooked up with jump scares, it will be a documentary called The Nightmare. The director of Room 237 has turned his camera on subjects who suffer from sleep paralysis, a curious ailment shared by many across the globe, all with similar supernatural horrors and phenomena. This played at Sundance earlier this year, and it's very unnerving and thought provoking. At the same time, there's something about it that feels like it builds up the potential horror for the audience a little too much.

Here's Why You Won't Be Seeing Loki in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron'

Loki

You might remember last fall that Idris Elba let slip that he and Tom Hiddleston were going to pop up in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, for those of us who saw the early showings of the movie last night around the United States, we noticed a distinct lack of Loki in the film, though Elba's character Heimdall does get some brief screentime. Well, Elba wasn't lying about Hiddleston shooting stuff for the Marvel sequel, but it turns out the scene they shot just didn't work in the final cut. Joss Whedon was asked about the lack of Loki in the final cut of Age of Ultron, and he told MTV why the decision was made.

Lionsgate Developing 'Cubed', a Remake of the Horror Sci-Fi 'Cube'

Cube

It looks like Hollywood may be running out of well-known titles from the past to remake, because now they're reaching into the late 90s for a cult sci-fi horror film for inspiration. THR reports Lionsgate is developing a remake of the 1997 flick Cube. The film is being described as a reimagining of the original film and is going by the title Cubed this time. The first film came from Splice director Vincenzo Natali, but this time it will be up and coming director Saman Kesh behind the camera to update the project for audiences 18 years later. In addition, Prometheus writer Jon Spaihts is on board to produce with Roy Lee. Read on!

Universal Pictures Summons Another Franchise with 'Ouija 2' Coming

Ouija

Briefly: Because a studio just can't refuse to do a sequel to a horror film that made even a little bit of money at the box office, Universal Pictures has announced that Ouija 2 will arrive on October 21st, 2016. The Blumhouse Pictures project was announced yesterday, though there are no details on where the new franchise will go story wise. Platinum Dunes will be back to produce again with Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard (Oculus) scripting the sequel. There's also no word on whether any of the cast members from the first film, such as Olivia Cooke and Douglas Smith, will be back in any capacity. Stay tuned for more soon.

Michael Bay Reveals Stephen Amell as Casey Jones in 'Ninja Turltes 2'

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

Just after we got our first look at the new ride our heroes in a half-shell will be cruising around in, not to mention news of a different actor playing their arch nemesis Shredder, producer Michael Bay has given us another glimpse of something new in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. We already knew "Arrow" star Stephen Amell was taking the role of vigilante Casey Jones, and now we have our first look at the hockey-masked character. Production on the film is already underway, so you can probably expect some more glimpses like this in the near future. He looks about as you'd expect, but maybe a little too clean cut.

Warner Bros. & Sony Battle for Channing Tatum in 'The Forever War'

Channing Tatum / The Forever War

While we wait to see if Channing Tatum really ends up starring in a spin-off of the forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot with Chris Pratt, the 21 Jump Street and Magic Mike star has become attached to another project, and this one has been gestating for awhile too. The Wrap reports Tatum is attached to lead a big screen adaptation of Joe Haldeman's classic sci-fi novel The Forever War, a project that was picked up by Ridley Scott a few years ago. However, the rights have lapsed, and that's put Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures in a bidding war to pick up the project that has a script from Prometheus writer Jon Spaihts.

Marvel Cinematic Universe

Just after the emotions of Pixar Animation's Inside Out reacted to a trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, audiences will be reacting to the entire film once it starts screening around the United States this evening. And for one last piece of hype before the Marvel Studios sequel arrives, why not take a look back at the entire Marvel cinematic universe up until this point?

Let's do this!

New 'Fantastic Four' Lines Up for Quad Banner & Character Posters

Fantastic Four

Not too long ago, the second trailer for Josh Trank's reboot of the comic book property Fantastic Four showed off more of the quartet in action, not to mention offering a glimpse of Doctor Doom. Now Miles Teller, Kata Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell have been lined up on a new banner and four character posters, with each showing their powers as Mr. Fantastic, The Invisible Woman, Human Torch and The Thing. They're pretty glossy Photoshop jobs, but thats just what we've come to expect from the studio marketing department. Also, if you look at the background, you'll see the Baxter building. Look now!

Watch: First Red Band Trailer for Sundance Indie Gem 'Tangerine'

Tangerine

There are plenty of independent films that go on to be celebrated by audiences and critics alike, but the Sundance selected Tangerine is a true indie. The film was shot on an iPhone 5S using an $8 app called Filmic Pro and some prototype lenses from Moondog Labs, all with a very small budget. And the result is a unique, intimate, funny, touching and fantastic story of friendship between two transgender women (Kitana Kiki Rodriguez and Mya Taylor) as they parade around the city of Los Angeles, looking for one of their boyfriends who has supposedly been sleeping around. It's one to go out of your way to see. Watch!

Bryan Singer Reveals Jubilee & Jean Grey on 'X-Men: Apocalypse' Set

X-Men: Apocalypse

There's been a lot of talk about X-Men this week, from our first look at Kodi Smit-McPhee as Nightcrawler in X-Men: Apocalypse to rumblings of the sequel, along with Wolverine 3, bringing the Bryan Singer X-Men universe to a close in favor of letting the X-Men: First Class timeline continue. We'll see what happens next year, but in the meantime, production is underway on Apocalypse, and Singer is certainly being open about teasing the film. Today he revealed a photo from the set of the sequel showing us Lana Condor and Sophie Turner as Jubilee and Jean Grey, all dressed up in 80s wardrobe and hair. Look!
