Twentieth Century Fox has released a final trailer for Marvel’s X-Men: Apocalypse, arriving in theaters May 27. Bryan Singer is back at the helm with James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), and Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) reprising their roles.
Oscar Isaac joins the cast as merciless mutant god Apocalypse and is joined by Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Ben Hardy as Angel, and sexy geek goddess Olivia Munn as scantly clad baddie Psylocke. A lot of shit gets destroyed in the clip and there are many mutants to peep, including a temperamental old friend.
Strangers writer and director Bryan Bertino is set to scare the shit out of us with his new creature-feature There Are Monsters, slated for release later this year from A24. While it’s not the eagerly awaited Strangers 2 sequel, There Are Monsters pits two emotionally estranged people up against an evil force.
Zoe Kazan (”Bored to Death”) stars in the film as a young single mom trying to protect her 10-year-old daughter from the ravenous and mysterious beasts hunting them down in a black forest. Making matters worse is the little girl’s lack of faith in her fucked up mother’s abilities.
Kazan is coming off the political drama Our Brand Is Chaos and has starred in such notable dramatic fare as Revolutionary Road and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee and the Anthony Hopkins led crime thriller Fracture.
Twentieth Century Fox has released a new trailer for Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day: Resurgence, a sequel to the master of disaster’s epic 1996 alien invasion classic. Set 20 years after the events of the first film, ID4: Resurgence once again finds earth on the brink of extinction as a new wave of aliens attacks.
Our heroes include Sela Ward as acting U.S. President Lanford, Liam Hemsworth as not Will Smith, Bill Pullman as U.S. President Whitmore, Maika Monroe as Whitmore’s hot daughter, Jeff Goldblum as tech wizard David Levinson, Judd Hirsch as Dave’s dad, and Vivica A. Fox as ex-stripper Jasmine.
IFC Midnight has released a trailer for Sacrifice, a cult-thriller from Flightplan writer and Stag Night director Peter A. Dowling. Based on the novel by S.J. Bolton, the film finds Mitchell playing an obstetrician who discovers buried under her new home the mutilated body of a woman slaughtered shortly after giving birth.
Sacrificial. Satanic. Ritualistic. These are words some characters in the movie don’t want to hear but they grab our interest! Granted we’d watch Mitchell pick her nose for 90-minutes. Sacrifice arrives in limited release and VOD April 29.
Warner Bros. has released a second trailer for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, an adaptation of the DC Comic about a group of super-villains brought together by a government agency for a suicide mission. Yeah, we’re late to post, but how can you not stop your life and watch Margot Robbie for a week?
Robbie as Harley Quinn steals the trailer as she will the movie, but it’s also fun to see Jared Leto’s turn as the Joker in the wake of Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning performance as the notorious villain and Jay Hernandez (Hostel) as gang-banger-turned-fire-starter El Diablo.
HBO has released a new trailer for season six of its Emmy award-winning fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” premiering April 24. The new clip is more than two minutes long and provides an even more thrilling and nerve-racking glimpse at what’s coming, which appears to be… the dead.
Also exciting is what promises to be some sweet and brutal revenge on that holy ass-hat the High Sparrow by Cersei Lannister, her brother and lover Jaime, and a reanimated Mountain! There’s also Daenerys Targaryen captured by the Dothraki, a redeemed but blind Arya, a scene-stealing Tyrion, and, and…
Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment’s fifth Underworld sequel has now got a name and, surprisingly, it isn’t Underworld 5: More Kate Beckinsale’s Ass. The upcoming film is instead titled, Underworld: Blood Wars.
“Outlander” director Anna Foerster helms Underworld: Blood Wars from a script by Priest and Last Witch Hunter scribe Cory Goodman. Plot details are not available, but Kate Beckinsale is back as death dealer Selene to kick and shoot stuff in the midst of an ongoing battle between vampires and werewolves.

Amazon Studios has released a trailer for The Neon Demon, an L.A. based satire about cannibalistic cat-walkers co-written and directed by Nicolas Refn (Drive). Elle Fanning toplines a cast that includes Christina Hendricks, Bella Heathcote , Jena Malone, model Abbey Lee and Keanu Reeves.
The Neon Demon follows a group of supermodels as they turn to cannibalism and voodoo to maintain their looks and competitiveness. The trailer is striking, chockful of beautiful women, glitter, and, well, neon lights. There’s also a glimpse at a sexy, violent cat-fight!
IFC Midnight has released The Dead Room on DVD and VOD. Based on real events from a 1970 case, the supernatural thriller stars fashion model turned actress Laura Petersen as a young psychic who teams up with two scientists to investigate a haunting in New Zealand.
Blake Lively (Age of Adaline) could use a bigger boat – or any boat really – in Sony Pictures’ upcoming shark thriller The Shallows. Lively plays a surfer stranded on a rock just a few feet from shore after being attacked by a great white.
Orphan and House of Wax director Jaume Collet-Serra helms The Shallows, slated to release in summer. Below is the first trailer for the film and it reveals why we’re sold hook, line, and sinker: Blake Lively. Tiny bikini. Big fucking shark.
