Witches, and warlocks, and demons, oh my! The fine folks over at Netflix have debuted a spooky new trailer for The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which appears to be very much my shit and cannot get here soon enough. Who would’ve guessed this thing would look as good as it does?
A far cry from the beloved, lighthearted 90s sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart, this new rendition of Sabrina the Teenage Witch is a dark coming-of-age story that finds the titular character (Kiernan Shipka) wrestling to reconcile her dual half-witch, half-mortal nature with plenty of horror, occult, and, of course, witchcraft sprinkled in.
Sabrina comes courtesy of the team behind Riverdale, a guilty pleasure of mine, which is probably the reason why I’m so excited to see what they’ve done with this new series. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa scripted the show and executive produces alongside Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Jon Goldwater, and Lee Toland Krieger.
The town Sabrina takes place in is called Greendale, which is a neighboring town to Riverdale (and the same place where Jason Blossom attempted to fake his own death), so chances are we’ll be seeing a Sabrina/Riverdale crossover happen eventually. Honestly, I’m down for that! Just don’t do another one of those insufferable musical episodes, please and thank you.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina also stars Ross Lynch, Jaz Sinclair, Lachlan Watson, Lucy Davis, Miranda Otto, Richard Coyle, and Michelle Gomez, and will hit Netflix on October 26. You can check out the newly released trailer below.
All hope seems to be lost for the Avengers in the somber first trailer for ‘Avengers: Endgame’
With speculation continuing to grow as to when Marvel Studios would release the first trailer for the eagerly awaited Avengers: Infinity War sequel, the studio finally did so early this morning and it appears this could be the bleakest chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet.
Our first look at the sequel, which confirms the title as being Avengers: Endgame, finds a distressed Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) floating throughout the cosmos with only hours worth of oxygen left to keep him alive. He records a video message for his beloved Pepper, hoping she’ll find it one day.
Meanwhile, back on Earth, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Natalia Romanova (Scarlett Johansson) are working to devise a plan to defeat Thanos (Josh Brolin), the villainous intergalactic being whose blitz of devastation and ruin has wiped nearly half of all living life, and it looks like they may get a little help from Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) along the way.
Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo return to direct the sequel, which was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who also penned the previous installment. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige serves as a producer.
Avengers: Endgame features an all-star cast that also includes Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Karen Gillan, and Brie Larson, and will hit theaters on April 26, 2019.

An action-packed new trailer for ‘Captain Marvel’ further reveals the origin of Carol Danvers
Marvel Studios debuted the highly anticipated new trailer for Captain Marvel during Monday Night Football on ESPN this evening. The upcoming origin story is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who also co-wrote the film’s script, and stars Brie Larson as the titular superhero.
Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel follows the journey of Carol Danvers (Larson) as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes after returning to Earth. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
“You have this Kree part of her that’s unemotional, that is an amazing fighter and competitive,” Larson told EW about her character earlier this year. “Then there’s this human part of her that is flawed but is also the thing that she ends up leading by. It’s the thing that gets her in trouble, but it’s also the thing that makes her great. And those two sides warring against each other is what makes her.”
Captain Marvel features a number of familiar faces from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), in addition to new characters played by Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Rune Temte, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace, Annette Benning, and Jude Law.
Kevin Feige produced Captain Marvel along with executive producers Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Patricia Whitcher, and Stan Lee. The film will open in theaters on March 8, 2019. You can check out the newly released trailer below.
The gorgeous final trailer for Barry Jenkins’ ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ wants you to feel the love
It may not have won anything at the 2018 Gotham Awards last night, but make no mistake that Barry Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk, the Oscar-winner’s highly anticipated follow-up to Moonlight, is one of the biggest contenders in this year’s awards season race.
In the final trailer for the film, which is based on James Baldwin’s novel of the same name, we get a closer look at the relationship between Tish (KiKi Layne) and Fonny (Stephan James), a devoted African-American couple whose plans for a future together are derailed when Fonny is arrested for a crime he did not commit.
Beale Street is the first English-language feature film based on the work of Baldwin, to whom the movie is dedicated, and is described as a “beautifully filmed adaptation that finds director Barry Jenkins further strengthening his visual and narrative craft” by review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, where the film boasts an impressive 92% approval rating from critics.
Jenkins wrote and directed the film, which also stars Regina King, Colman Domingo, Teyonah Parris, Brian Tyree Henry, Michael Beach, Ed Skrein, Diego Luna, Dave Franco, and Pedro Pascal.
At last night’s Gotham Awards, Beale Street was nominated for Best Feature and Breakthrough Actor for Layne but ended up losing to The Rider and Elsie Fisher of Eighth Grade, respectively.
If Beale Street Could Talk was produced by Megan Ellison, Jenkins, Adele Romanski, Sara Murphy, Jeremy Kleiner, and Dede Gardner, and will open in select theaters on December 14. You can check out the newly released trailer for the film below.
