According to the film’s official synopsis, Mortal Engines, which takes place thousands of years after civilization has been destroyed by a cataclysmic event and gigantic moving cities now roam the Earth, ruthlessly preying upon smaller traction towns, follows two opposites whose paths should never crossed. However, after forging an unlikely alliance, they are destined to change the course of the future once and for all.

Rivers, an Oscar-winning visual-effects artist perhaps best known for his work on Peter Jackson’s 2005 remake of King Kong, directed Mortal Engines from a script written by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Jackson, based on the award-winning book series by Philip Reeve.

Mortal Engines will open in theaters on December 14, 2018.

Alicia Vikander fights to survive a deadly mission in an action-packed new trailer for ‘Tomb Raider’

Published

on

It’s no secret that the marketing campaign for the upcoming Tomb Raider adaptation starring Alicia Vikander got off to a very poor start. In addition to releasing a pretty underwhelming first trailer that failed to capture the excitement of many, including fans of the video games series, Warner Bros. also issued a rather poorly Photoshopped one-sheet for the film that people had a field day with over on Twitter.

That being said, the latest trailer for Tomb Raider dropped this morning and, while I’m still not entirely sold on this movie quite yet, our latest look at this action-packed adventure from director Roar Uthaug is a huge improvement over the first trailer and delivers plenty of great new footage.

As per the film’s official synopsis, Tomb Raider follows Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who suddenly vanishes while exploring a fabled tomb on a mythical island somewhere off the coast of Japan. Refusing to believe that her father is dead, Lara leaves everything she knows behind and sets out on a mission to find out the truth behind her father’s disappearance once and for all.

Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West, Walton Gogins, Daniel Wu, and Kristin Scott Thomas, and will open in theaters in just two months time on March 16. You can check out the newly released trailer above.

After teasing fans on social media yesterday, 20th Century Fox has finally released a new trailer for Greg Berlanti’s coming-of-age film Love, Simon starring Nick Robinson, Katherine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Miles Heizer, Logan Miller, Keiynan Lonsdale, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, and Tony Hale.

For Simon, resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying, and life-changing.

Joaquin Phoenix tracks down a missing girl in a gripping new trailer for ‘You Were Never Really Here’

Published

on

Lynne Ramsay’s gripping new thriller You Were Never Really Here starring Joaquin Phoenix is undoubtedly one of my most anticipated movies of the year. The film world premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival last May where it won Best Actor and Best Screenplay and will make its U.S. debut next week at Sundance.

Described as a “powerful assault of a film,” You Were Never Really Here follows Joe, a traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, who tracks down missing girls for a living. When one of his jobs begin to spin out of control, Joe’s nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip—or his awakening.

Not only does You Were Never Really Here look stunning from a visual standpoint, but the performances look absolutely incredible, especially from Phoenix, who seems to be lost in the role of Joe, while Jonny Greenwood’s ambient score is simply mesmerizing. If you’re seeing this film at Sundance next week, consider me jealous.

You Were Never Really Here is scheduled to be released in U.S. theaters on April 6. Be sure to check out the new international trailer in the embedded player above, and read some of the wonderful things critics are saying about the film here.
