Chris Pratt made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this evening to premiere a groovy new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which features plenty of new footage including our first look at Peter Quill finally meeting his long-lost father and we couldn’t be more excited for what this film has in store for us. Did we forget to mention there’s lots of Baby Groot in this trailer? That too.

The follow-up to the 2014 box office smash that grossed $773.3 million worldwide sees the return of Pratt’s Star-Lord along with Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, Michael Rooker’s Yondu, Dave Bautista’s Drax, Bradley Cooper’s Rocket, and Vin Diesel’s Baby Groot, as they embark on what is guaranteed to be a hilariously epic adventure as they travel throughout the cosmos while battling a new, sinister threat that decides to get in their way.

James Gunn directed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 from a screenplay he wrote while Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was on producing duties. Louis D’Esposito, Jonathan Schwartz, Victoria Alonso, Nik Korda, and Stan Lee also served as executive producers.

Earlier this month, Marvel insiders confirmed that the upcoming superhero adventure had scored a perfect 100 during a test screening, besting the studio’s other top scoring films including The Avengers and Iron Man 3 which both tested in the high 90s out of 100. If that’s any indication, we can expect nothing but the best from Guardians 2 which is sure to be the cherry on top of what is expected to be an incredible year for comic book movies.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will blast into U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017. You can check out the latest trailer for the film above.

It Chapter Two Pennywise
WARNER BROS.

Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for It Chapter Two, the eagerly awaited follow-up to Andy Muschietti’s 2017 critically acclaimed box office smash based on Stephen King’s iconic horror novel of the same name.

Set 27 years after the events of the first movie, It Chapter Two stars Jessica Chastain as Beverly, James McAvoy as Bill, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, and Andy Bean as Stanley as they return to Derry to confront Pennywise (Bill Skarsgård) one last time.

“Something happens to you when you leave this town. The farther away, the hazier it all gets,” we hear an adult Mike say as the trailer shows a flashback from the 2017 film. “But me — I never left. I remember all of it.”

Jaeden Martell, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor will all reprise their roles as the original members of the Losers Club from the first movie.

Muschietti directed It Chapter Two from a screenplay written by Gary Dauberman, based on King’s best-selling 1986 book. Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee are producers, with Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith, and David Katzenberg serving as executive producers.

It Chapter Two will float into theaters on September 6.

With their case diminishing, prosecutors drop sexual assault charges against Kevin Spacey

With their case against Kevin Spacey diminishing, Nantucket prosecutors asked Wednesday for charges to be dropped against the actor, who had been facing a felony charge for the alleged sexual assault of the teenage son of a former Boston TV news anchor in 2016.

In a document filed in the Nantucket District Court, Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe said he was filing a “nolle prosequi,” which, in a criminal case, is an admission that the charges against the defendant cannot be proven. O’Keefe cited the “unavailability of the complaining witness” as his reason for the dismissal of the case.

O’Keefe’s decision to drop the charges against Spacey is not a particularly surprising one. During an evidentiary hearing last week, Spacey’s accuser refused to testify about what happened to a missing cellphone containing text messages — and possibly video — the night the alleged assault took place.

When asked if he knew that he could be charged with a felony should an investigation find that he had tampered with or destroyed evidence on the phone, Spacey’s accuser invoked the Fifth Amendment and was unwilling to continue his testimony, according to The New York Times.

The accuser’s lawyer, Mitchell Garabedian, said in a statement that the accuser and his family “have shown an enormous amount of courage under difficult circumstances,” and added that he will not be commenting on the case any further at this time.

Spacey’s lawyer, Alan Jackson, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In December, just moments before the news of the felony charge against Spacey broke, the actor posted to YouTube a bizarre video in which he appears as his character Frank Underwood from the Netflix series House of Cards and says he is “certainly not going to pay the price for the thing I didn’t do.”

Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu lead a band of grifting strippers in the ‘Hustlers’ trailer

Hustlers
STX FILMS

STX Films has released the first trailer for Hustlers, the upcoming stripper comedy featuring an all-star cast that includes the likes of Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Mercedes Ruehl, and Cardi B.

Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, the film follows a group of savvy former strip club employees who come together to turn the tables on their unsuspecting, money-grubbing Wall Street clients.

“These Wall Street guys — you see what they did to this country? They stole from everybody,” Lopez’s character says. “Hard-working people lost everything and not one of these douchebags go to jail. The game is rigged and it does not reward people who play by the rules. It’s like robbing a bank; except you get the keys.”

Scafaria based Hustlers on Jessica Pressler’s 2015 New York Magazine article titled “Hustlers at Scores,” which tells the real-life story of a band of New York City strippers scamming their wealthy clients out of thousands of dollars before eventually being caught by authorities.

In addition to starring in the film, Lopez also serves as a producer on Hustlers alongside Elaine Goldsmith Thomas, Jessica Elbaum, Benny Medina, Will Ferrell, and Adam McKay. The film is a co-production between STX and Annapurna.

Hustlers will open in theaters on September 13.
