‘Ready Player One’ final trailer offers one last look at Spielberg’s love letter to pop culture

Published

on

Fresh off its surprise world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival last week, Warner Bros. has unleashed a brand new trailer for Steven Spielberg’s highly anticipated Ernest Cline adaptation Ready Player One, and it’s packed with plenty of new footage, pull quotes from critics, and, as you could probably imagine, lots of pop culture references.

As Wade Watt’s informative voiceover tells us, Ready Player One takes us into an expansive virtual reality universe created by tech industry celebrity James Halliday. The story begins after Halliday dies and decides to leave his fortune to the first person that can locate a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I agree that Warner Bros. probably shouldn’t be relying on all of the pop culture references in their marketing as much as they are, but, aside from that, this looks like a classic Spielberg adventure flick and I’m pretty excited to see what the veteran director has to offer with his latest.

Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, T.J. Miller, Simon Pegg, and Mark Rylance, and will hit theaters on March 29.

‘Deadpool 2’ final trailer further introduces the members of the X-Force, pokes fun at the DCEU

Published

With a little less than a month to go until Deadpool 2 opens in theaters next month, 20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for the upcoming sequel starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth and it reveals a bunch of new footage of the X-Force in action.

While the previously trailer only very briefly introduced us to the members of the X-Force team, our latest look at Deadpool 2 gives us a much closer look at the supporting cast, which includes Zazie Beetz’s Domino and Terry Crews’ Bedlam. We also see a pretty brutal interaction between Deadpool and Cable (Josh Brolin) that manages to squeeze in a line poking fun at the DC Extended Universe.

I still can’t say I’m 100% sold on Deadpool 2 as I’m still a bit turned off by the previous trailers we’ve gotten in recent months, but I will say that I’m staying cautiously optimistic for the sequel. The final trailer is definitely a pretty big improvement over the others.

For Deadpool 2, John Wick co-director David Leitch is behind the camera directing from a script written by returning screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The film also stars T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, Stefan Kapicic, and will hit theaters on May 18.

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ final trailer offers our best look yet at the action-packed sequel

Published

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been a huge fan of the Jurassic Park franchise. The movies have never really piqued my interested and my eyes pretty much rolled to the back of my head when I first heard about the Jurassic World trilogy a while back.

That being said, while I don’t necessarily care much for Colin Trevorrow’s first installment in the Jurassic World trilogy, nor am I looking to the next one he is co-writing and directing, I must say that J.A. Bayona’s highly anticipated Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom looks like an absolute blast. This is the type of Jurassic Park movie I’ve been waiting for.

Per the film’s official synopsis, when Isla Nublar’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their mission uncovers a conspiracy that could return the entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

As someone who is a massive fan of J.A. Bayona’s 2016 fantasy drama A Monster Calls, which didn’t receive nearly as much attention around awards season as it should have, I’m pretty excited to see what the filmmaker as in store for us with his latest effort. Jurassic World also stars Jeff Goldblum, BD Wong, James Cromwell, Ted Lavine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, and will hit theaters on June 22.

The creepy new trailer for A24’s ‘Hereditary’ is here to make sure you don’t sleep tonight

Published

on

A24’s upcoming horror release Hereditary is undoubtedly my most anticipated film of the year at the moment and the latest trailer for writer-director Ari Aster’s breakout horror sensation that shook festivals like Sundance and SXSW earlier this year is only making me more excited to see what the filmmaker has in store for us.

Per the film’s official synopsis, Hereditary picks up just after Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away. As described in the trailer by Annie (Toni Collette), Ellen’s daughter, she was a “very private woman” who “wasn’t altogether there at the end” of her life. But when Annie begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about her ancestry, she begins trying to outrun the sinister fate she and family seem to have inherited.

While the first trailer for Hereditary seemed to focus more on Collette’s character, our newest look at the film puts Charlie (Milly Shapiro) front and center. Oh, and as if this trailer wasn’t creepy enough, the brilliant marketing team over at A24 has launched a fake Etsy profile under the username “CraftsByCharlieG” showcasing some of the weird little dolls Charlie creates in the movie.

Though I’ve already had a peek at the film’s script and read all 156 pages (I’ve never cared much about spoilers), I’m still very eager to see how Hereditary, which also stars Gabriel Byrne and Alex Wolff, plays out on the big screen when it opens in theaters this summer on June 8.
