A new, international trailer for Rogue One has released, and it has a darker tone than some of the previous ones, focusing on immense power of the Death Star, and the stakes at play in the efforts to destroy such a weapon. The finally releases on Dec. 16. Discuss
Will Ferrell is at it again! By that, we mean he’s making yet another movie in which his character has a uniquely successful job.
In the past, the Saturday Night Live veteran has played everything from a famous race car driver a la Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby to a renowned figure skater in Blades of Glory. This time around Ferrell is trading in his ice skates for a video game controller to star in a film which will take place in the competitive world of video-gaming.
The unnamed comedy will tell the story of a middle-aged man whose unmatched hand-eye coordination allows him to compete on an eSports team with a group of significantly younger players. The film’s plot is already lending itself to make some seriously funny jokes about the generational divide between millennials and the rest of the world—a parody that isn’t too unfamiliar to Ferrell.
There is no word yet on when the film will officially make its debut, but we can’t imagine it doing poorly at the box office. The ever-growing gaming industry already has tens of millions of devoted followers worldwide. Discuss
A trailer for the big-screen adaptation of the Dave Eggers’ novel The Circle has just been released, and it looks pretty eerie.
The movie stars Tom Hanks and Emma Watson, and centers on a giant tech company that may or may not have something more sinister in the works than just connecting the world or making information more widely available.
The trailer for the latest installment in the Transformers franchise (which, in case you’re counting, is No. 5), has dropped, and it continues to take the movies in a heavier, darker direction than early Shia LaBeouf goofy adventures.
Of course, this is still a movie based on kids toys of trucks that turn into robots, so there are still tons of explosions and robot fighting, but, it least in this trailer, we are treated to a dark remix of The Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize??”
Transformers: The Last Night drops of June 23rd. Discuss
In case you somehow missed it, over the weekend, the new teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 released, and it contains everything you’d expect from the follow up to Marvel’s surprise hit: jokes, classic rock ’n roll, Baby Groot and tons of explosions.

(Just a heads up, it contains some mild off-color humor) Discuss
A first look at the new Mummy movie—a reboot to a franchise many forgot existed and ceased caring about in the late '90s—has been released. The movie stars Tom Cruise, and thanks to this 15-second clip, we know that it will contain a lot of Tom Cruise stuff like dramatically running and explosions and stuff.
Here’s the teaser that no one asked for, but we’re all getting. Discuss
