Full Trailer for Ryan Coogler's 'Black Panther' with Chadwick Boseman

Black Panther Trailer

"My son, it is your time. You get to decide what kind of King you are going to be." Disney has revealed the full-length official trailer for Marvel's Black Panther movie, directed by the talented filmmaker Ryan Coogler (of Fruitvale Station, Creed), and it looks awesome. The story follows King T'Challa, once again played by Chadwick Boseman, who goes back to his African nation of Wakanda after the events of Civil War. There he encounters new enemies that want to challenge his seat on the throne, and destroy Wakanda. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Florence Kasumba, John Kani, Winston Duke, and Sterling K. Brown. This looks damn good. Yes it looks like another Marvel movie, but I dig the Coogler's style and boldness, seems a bit more unique than others. Check it out.

Official Trailer for Mickey Keating's Horror Thriller Film 'Psychopaths'

Psychopaths Trailer

"You look like a friendly crowd!" Samuel Goldywn Films recently debuted this official trailer for the new horror thriller titled Psychopaths, which first played at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. This is also the latest film from Mickey Keating, director of the films Ritual, Pod, Darling, and Carnage Park, which was also released this year. Psychopaths is about seven different serial killers whose paths cross over one single, blood soaked night. This looks flashy and stylish, though it's hard to tell what exactly is going on in this trailer. The ensemble cast includes Ashley Bell, Angela Trimbur, James Landry Hebert, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Jeremy Gardner, Ivana Shein, and Larry Fessenden. If you're into indie horror, and masks, and serial killer films, then this is for you. But if you're not into that, well, maybe not. Have fun.

Meet the New Kids - First Teaser Trailer for 'X-Men: The New Mutants'

X-Men: The New Mutants

"Do you know what mutants are?" 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first teaser trailer for the new X-Men movie, this one title New Mutants, based on the spin-off comic series about a group of young mutants. Instead of continuing on with the X-Men superheroes we all know from the series of movies, Fox is trying something a bit different with a new group - starring Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane, Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik, Charlie Heaton as Cannonball, Henry Zaga as Sunspot, and Blu Hunt as Mirage. Also starring Alice Braga and Happy Anderson. So far this looks very horrific, yet still seemingly aimed at younger audiences, with the director of The Fault in Our Stars at the helm. This is our very first look, it's worth a watch. Not at all what you're expecting, way more of a horror than an X-Men movie, but it looks intriguing.

Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, John Cena in 'Blockers' Red Band Trailer

Blockers Red Band Trailer

"Our girls are not thinking things through!" Universal Pictures has released a new red band trailer for the new comedy titled Blockers, formerly known as The Pact, the feature directorial debut of writer/producer Kay Cannon. The plot is awful - three parents discover their children are planning to lose their virginity on prom night, and set off to go stop them. If you don't get it, the title is a reference to "cockblocking" and they even hint at that directly in the title card at the end of this trailer. Starring Leslie Mann, Ike Barinholtz, John Cena, Kathryn Newton, Geraldine Indira Viswanathan, and Gideon Adlan. I'm just going to say it - this looks so terrible, like really, really bad. It does not look funny at all. Stay away, stay far far away.

First Official Trailer for RZA's Slam Poetry Film 'Love Beats Rhymes'

Love Beats Rhymes Trailer

"I need more than potential to sell records." Lionsgate has released the first official trailer for the new film directed by RZA titled Love Beats Rhymes, a musical drama about a struggling rapper who turns to slam poetry. Azealia Banks plays Coco, who takes a poetry class and tries to impress her teacher with her rhymes. Instead, she learns to dig deeper and discovers her "true voice." This film also stars Hana Mae Lee, Method Man, John David Washington, Common, Lorraine Toussaint, Lucien Laviscount, and Jill Scott and Professor Dixon. This reminds me of the film festival hit Bodied, about rapping, but it also seems to have its own nice vibe to it that might make for good entertainment and creative inspiration.

Crazy Fun Trailer for Action Comedy Spy Show Film 'Espionage Tonight'

Espionage Tonight Trailer

"We'll send you on missions - and then you guide us through your adventure." The Orchard has launched a trailer for a film titled Espionage Tonight, which we've never heard of before now. This action-comedy satire is about a reality show that is created about spies, following them on real missions and broadcasting it. The ensemble cast includes Joe Hursley, Saïd Taghmaoui, Sean Astin and Lynn Whitfield. The trailer gives a quick introduction to the plot, and then the rest plays out almost like a twisted reality TV show, or something. This actually looks cooler than expected, but perhaps a bit too wacky. Honestly I'm not really sure what to make of it. But I might want to watch it sometime to see if it's any good. Fire it up below.
