As promised, MGM and Warner Bros. unleashed a new trailer for Creed II this morning, further revealing the next chapter in Adonis Creed’s boxing career, and it looks to be a pretty promising sequel—even if it doesn’t have a shot at being nearly as good as what we got with the first Creed.
Our latest look at Creed II shows just how much of a balancing act life has become for Adonis (Michael B. Jordan) as he gears up for what could be the biggest challenge of his life: going head to head with Viktor (Florian Munteanu), the son of Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren).
But facing off against a ruthless opponent with ties to his family’s past means training around the clock with Rocky (Sylvester Stallone), who has pretty much turned into Mickey Goldmill at this point. However, that also means less time away from Bianca (Tessa Thompson) and his newborn baby—so Adonis obviously has a lot at stake here, especially considering how things ended for his dad when he faced off against the elder Drago.
For Creed II, Steven Caple Jr. is in the director’s chair this time around working from a screenplay written by Stallone himself, while Ryan Coogler, who directed the first Creed, steps back into an executive producer role. Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Andre Ward, and Phylicia Rashad also star in the film.
Creed II will head into theaters just in time for Thanksgiving on November 21. You can check out the newly released trailer for the film below.
Ewan McGregor is Danny Torrance in the first trailer for ‘The Shining’ sequel ‘Doctor Sleep’
Props to Mike Flanagan for having the balls to take on a film adaptation of Doctor Sleep, Stephen King‘s follow-up to his 1977 classic The Shining, which is arguably one of his most popular and beloved novels ever.
While it’s safe to say that I think The Shining stands on its own just fine, it’s also pretty cool to see the story of Danny Torrance continued 40 years after his very nice and very untraumatizing vacation at the Overlook Hotel.
In Flanagan’s film, Danny is played by Ewan McGregor and, as you could probably imagine, is still haunted by the events he witnessed as a child, but he’s still managed to find some peace of mind along the way.
However, that peace is upended when he crosses paths with a young girl named Abra (newcomer Kyliegh Curran), who is desperate for Danny’s help against Rose the Hat (Rebecca Ferguson) and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the “shine” of innocents in their quest for immortality.
As you can see in the trailer, they’re definitely not downplaying this thing’s connection to Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of The Shining, and that’s a bold fucking move. Again, props to Mike Flanagan for not only having the balls to adapt Doctor Sleep, but also have the balls to make a sequel to what is considered to be one of the greatest horror films of all time.
We’ll see if he can pull it off when Doctor Sleep hits theaters on November 8.
Watch Brad Pitt get into a shootout while riding an ATV on the moon in the epic ‘Ad Astra’ trailer
Fucking finally: 20th Century Fox dropped the first trailer for James Gray’s sci-fi drama Ad Astra starring Brad Pitt overnight and it looks great! Plenty of mysteries, drama, and ATV gunfights on the moon for the whole family to enjoy.
Pitt stars here as space engineer Roy McBride who embarks on a mission that spans the solar system to find his father (Tommy Lee Jones), who left on a one-way mission to the planet of Neptune more than 20 years ago in an effort to find some sort of extra-terrestrial life.
Little did Roy know, though, that his father “was actually experimenting with a highly classified material” that could pretty much threaten the entire solar system and wipe humanity (and any extra-terrestrial beings out there, I guess) as we know it.
Is Roy’s father actually not the hero his son thinks he is? Will Roy ever find him? How long will that whole ATV gunfight sequence on the moon last? Does Trump’s Space Force exist in this movie’s timeline? Why is Hoyte Van Hoytema so damn good at this whole cinematography thing?
All your burning questions and more will be answered when Ad Astra hits theaters later this year on September 20.
Inject this incredible first trailer for James Mangold’s ‘Ford v Ferrari’ directly into my veins, baby
In traditional 20th Century Fox, the studio dropped the first trailer for James Mangold‘s Logan follow-up Ford v Ferrari at the weirdest possible fucking time (a Sunday night, really?) and it looks like this thing is shaping up to be one hell of a contender this awards season.
Set to the tune of the most overused song in cinematic history, the trailer for Ford v Ferrari tells “the remarkable true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale),” who, believe it or not, does not seem to have undergone any drastic transformations for his role here.
Together, the duo “battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.”
I don’t know about you, but as someone who could care less about cars, this movie about a bunch of dudes seeing who can build the fastest one and racing each other and shit sure does look intriguing as hell! If this movie wasn’t on my radar before, it certainly is now.
I’ve always been a fan of Mangold’s and it looks like he’s put together something really worth looking forward to here, and how could you not be intrigued by something that features a cast that includes the likes of Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Tracy Letts, and the kid from A Quiet Place? Consider me sold on this one, folks.
Ford v Ferrari will race into theaters on November 15.
