This weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, audiences got an extended look at one of the latest edition’s to the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Doctor Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Directed by Scott Derrickson, the film’s trailer has a distinctly spiritual tone and tells the story of a skeptical surgeon who is able to tapped into mystical powers in his quest to save lives.

And, from the looks of it, the movie will be a real mind bender and not your typical Marvel flick.

A new trailer at Oliver Stone’s take on the story of Edward Snowden has been released, and it looks like an interesting look at the controversial real-life whistleblower. At recent screening of the film at Comic Con, Snowden himself—who is wanted by the United States and is currently living in Russia—appeared via video chat, and said that though at first, the idea of the movie made him uneasy, he likes the final film.

As The Verge notes, he told reporters, "I don't think anybody looks forward to having a movie made about themselves" but is glad it is a way to "reach new audiences in new ways and get people talking about things that they don't have time to read or look for in the academic sense.”

The film, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, hits theaters on Sept. 16. Discuss

The new movie will star a new character, named “Detective Pikachu,” and though no plot details have been announced, we’re guessing it will have something to do with the heroic efforts to keep "Pokemon Go" servers from repeatedly crashing, momentarily destroying lives all over the planet.

When we first heard news that Sony was making a big-budget, feature length movie based on emojis, like the rest of the world, we were pretty apprehensive. But, this “audition” tape featuring TJ Miller gives us some hope that it will at least be self-aware enough to actually be potentially, at least somewhat, funny.

And spoiler alert: Miller did get the part. He plays the “meh” emoji in the upcoming animated comedy called “Express Yourself” due out in 2017.


The latest edition of the Star Wars franchise doesn’t hit theaters until December, but the filmmakers have already released some behind-the-scenes footage that shows just how different the tone of Rogue One might be. As this featurette seems to indicate, the action-heavy epic looks more like a war movie than a sci-fi adventure.

If the clip isn’t enough of a teaser, the studio has also released a stunning new poster for Rogue One. The force looks strong with this one.
