Absolutely everyone Will Hear You Scream at the Very first Alien: Covenant Trailer

If your vacation celebrations need to have a small much more chest-bursting excitement, we have great news: The extremely gory (and very intriguing) NSFW first trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant arrived. It promises a post-Prometheus return to the franchise’s action-horror roots, with gung-ho troopers, spooky corridors, and, of course, gnarly xenomorphs.

Directed by Scott—and featuring an ensemble cast of Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, and Billy Crudup—the most current Alien film follows a group of colonists who land on an idyllic planet, only to learn they’re not alone.

We’ll see how rapidly factors get “game over, man!” when Alien: Covenant opens subsequent Could.

New Rogue A single Trailer: A Fierce Rebellion Begins

The fantasy story of a female-led insurgency against a domineering Empire seemed like space opera escapism only a few days ago. But now that people are protesting the election of Donald Trump in cities across the US, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story—and its ragtag group of rebels out to defeat a new regime—feels a lot more au courant than it did just last week.

We got the final US trailer last month, but now there’s an international trailer that gives even more information about how Jyn Erso and the rest of her team steal the plans for the Empire’s super weapon. This new trailer is also far more forthcoming about that plot—like, for example, Jyn finally actually utters the words, “Death Star,” and there are shots of the space station moving. It’s kind of terrifying to see it rise in the sky above a planet, get in position for a weapons test, and destroy the surface of it while blotting out the sun.

Less terrifying are the new shots that flash back to Jyn’s childhood. A woman, presumably Jyn’s mother, puts a necklace with a clear crystal around her neck. Jyn is still wearing that crystal as an adult—part of the mounting evidence that it’s a kyber crystal, the mineral used to create lightsabers, and the raw material the Empire seeks on the planet Jedha to create the main weapon on the Death Star.

And for an orphaned delinquent who gets broken out of prison to lead this team, Jyn is also quite inspiring. At the end of the trailer, she’s imploring an unknown audience, “We’ll take the next chance, and the next, until we win, or the chances are spent.”

Rogue One hits theaters December 16.

This is a piece I call “November 8 2016”

A photo posted by Sam’s Schlegel (@schlegalleria) on

Donald Trump was just elected the 45th president of the United States. It was, in every possible way, a stunning victory. So stunning, in fact, that many members of the electorate don’t know how to respond.

Except on Instagram.

As Trump took the stage early this morning, users of the photo-sharing service began posting flat black images instead of photos. Most of the images don’t have captions so it’s hard to tell the true intent, but the message seems to be that Trump’s win portends dark times ahead.

Throughout the election, Instagram has been a place for users to post memes, “I Voted” photos (and sometimes their ballots, even if that is legally dubious), and other messages of political support, so this series of images marks a subdued and stark end to the presidential campaign. It will also likely not be the last trend to hit the photo-sharing site in the coming weeks. Like the Pepe the Frogs and the sniffs and the “This Is Fines” before it, many more memes will follow this black square.

Last night’s championship-deciding Game 7 of the World Series was one of the most dramatic in the history of baseball. The Chicago Cubs, a team without a title since 1908, facing off against the Cleveland Indians, who hadn’t won in 68 years. An early lead for the Cubs, then a blown save in the 8th inning as Cleveland tied the game 6-6 on a home run. And as if that didn’t create enough drama as the game headed into extra innings, there was a rain delay. It’s a situation nobody could’ve predicted.

Except this guy:

One Twitter user, sadly a Cleveland Indians fan, predicted almost this exact scenario back in 2014. The Cubs, the Indians, Game 7, and the rain delay. Thankfully it didn’t end with the apocalypse, and merely the Cubs winning the team’s first World Series in 108 years, bringing the end to the most tortuous title drought in all of sports. But the sudden Twitter fame may be small comfort to the Cleveland fan who made the prediction after the Indians squandered a 3-1 lead in the series.

Doctor Strange may be the talk of the comic book movie universe right now, but Diana Prince has never been one to let the boys have all the fun. Case in point: The latest trailer for Wonder Woman, in which the Amazonian warrior princess (played by the actually perfect Gal Gadot) takes the ass-kickery that made her the highlight of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and turns it up to 11 during World War I. She shoots arrows! She uses her Bracelets of Submission to deflect bullets! She has a friggin’ sword in her dress! She is also not here to take any kind of orders from Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). Check out the new trailer for director Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, which hits theaters June 2, 2017, above.

Here’s That Nic-Cage-vs.-Sharks Trailer Absolutely everyone Is Talking About

It is not genuinely summer without having a tense action film on the huge screen, and judging by the dearth of box office successes more than the previous couple of months, viewers may well be out of luck. All the American audience wanted was a huge-price range action flick, some thing with bombs and explosions and justice—a nation-defending hero striding in slow motion, stern-jawed authority figures conspiring in suits, and perhaps some sharks.

Nicolas Cage has heard our call—and delivered. In USS Indianapolis: Guys of Courage, directed by Mario Van Peebles, America’s preferred unhinged actor brings his wild-eyed style to Captain Charles B. McVay III. In 1945, McVay’s ship was brought down by a Japanese submarine right after delivering atomic bomb elements to Titian Island 900 survivors had been stranded in the Pacific Ocean for five days. Soon after 584 of the men died, McVay was court-martialed and attempted by a US military tribunal. What occurred with USS Indianapolis was the worst naval disaster in history, but in the 1st trailer for its film adaptation viewers can preview a catastrophe of a merrier sort: an enraged Nic Cage vs. the odds. And, of course, sharks.

Get excited, children: Bill Nye is coming back to television. That’s proper, the bowtie-festooned educator is getting his personal speak show on Netflix named Bill Nye Saves the Globe.

And, according to Netflix’s official synopsis, every installment will “tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of market.” (You hear that, BS-mongers? Bill Nye is on to you.)

This combines each of those ventures into 1 show with a host who has provided thoughtful and entertaining scientific commentary for decades. And with a Netflix budget, subscribers are positive to get a giant influx of killer bow ties.

Provided the plethora of superhero cameos in Captain America: Civil War, it’s tough to believe any individual was left out. But of everyone who didn’t get to join in for the airport-tarmac-brawl exciting, none was much more sad to be missing out than Thor. And frankly, we have been sad to be missing him. Now, thanks to the bonus functions on the Civil War digital release, we can know what he was up to whilst his fellow Avengers have been battling it out. In this mockumentary, which premiered in the course of Marvel’s Hall H presentation at Comic-Con International, we find out that Thor went to Australia, got a roommate, and attempted to mediate the fight among Tony Stark and Steve Rogers by means of e-mail. He also started a yarn chart to figure out what’s up with the Infinity Stones. Designed by Taika Waititi, who is at present directing Thor: Ragnarok, the clip has all the heart and deadpan humor of the director’s vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows and it’s quite a lot ideal.

Amazon came to the Sundance Film Festival with its wallet open back in January, snapping up the rights to six films. The streaming service and fledgling studio’s largest acquisition was Manchester by the Sea, the third film from playwright and screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me, Margaret), in a $ ten million deal. Because the rapturous reaction following the premiere, not considerably about the film has been revealed to a wide audience, but now that awards season is beginning to spin up, there’s finally a trailer. The film stars Casey Affleck as Lee Chandler, who returns to his seaside hometown right after his brother’s death—and discovers that he has been made legal guardian of his teenage nephew.

It’s the type of loved ones drama that Lonergan excels at, with plenty of massive moments for actors to achieve notice. Amazon has slated the film for a limited release on November 18 (Roadside Attractions is assisting with the theatrical distribution), with a wider rollout planned through December—a clear aim at awards season. Casey Affleck currently has 1 Oscar nod (for 2007’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford), and the trailer highlights operate that will likely receive a campaign for Greatest Actor, along with pushes for Michelle Williams and Lucas Hedges in the supporting categories. Amazon clearly wanted to get into the non-documentary Oscar race that they’re doing so with a filmmaker like Lonergan, and an intimate picture like this, shows that they’re going about it the right way.

Maisie Williams—actress, rabble-rouser, blue-hair-haver—has observed the future of Game of Thrones. Her reaction? “Holy balls.” That is correct, TV’s Arya Stark has study the scripts for the seventh season of HBO’s fantasy drama and, according to her reactions on Twitter, there’s no way any of us can gird our loins sufficient to prepare for what’s to come.

Frank Ocean loves playing tough to get. Right after virtually a year of teasing, rumors, and false release dates, the R&ampB prodigy lastly released his second album Blonde (Blond?) on Saturday. (Eds. Note: It’s spectacular.) Coming just two days following his visual album Endless dropped, Ocean’s new LP came out alongside a book/oversized magazine/zine titled Boys Do not Cry. But although Blonde was simple to locate on Apple Music, Boys Do not Cry was only accessible at unique pop-up shops in New York, London, Chicago, and Los Angeles.

The publication, which came with a copy of Blonde and had contributions from people like James Blake and Kanye West, was free of charge for fans who got to the pop-ups in time to get one. But capitalism becoming what it is, those once-free of charge copies of Boys Don’t Cry have currently began showing up on eBay— and they’re not low cost. As of this writing, auctions for the magazine/thingamabob have been running among $ 300 and $ 2,000. If that is too rich for your blood, there may be hope on the horizon. Ocean’s mother, Katonya Breaux Riley, tweeted early this morning “Don’t spend these ridiculous rates for the mags on eBay. Just hang tight a sec.” Does that imply Boys Don’t Cry will be a lot more widely available quickly? Appears like it—but once more, this is a Frank Ocean project, so we won’t know until it is currently taking place.

Merciful Minerva, The 1st Wonder Woman Trailer Is Here!

We knew we’d get lots of DC-associated intel at Warner Brothers’ Comic-Con panel these days, and we’re happy to report that our most-hoped-for bit did certainly come to pass: Director Patty Jenkins revealed the initial full trailer for Wonder Woman. “It feels like the ideal time to make this movie,” Jenkins stated while discussing the extended-overdue rise of female superheroes in motion pictures, “so I’m psyched.” And after seeing the trailer, we second that emotion. Gal Gadot as Diana had currently shown up—and stolen scenes—in Batman v Superman, but this is the starring role that shows why we were waiting for Gadot. From her exchanges with Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) to her golden lasso-function, it’s shaping up to be a fine debut for one of the cornerstones of the Justice League.

Pause at: :46 for a concealed sword :54 for a mysterious masked lady 1:13 for Diana’s invisible jet. (What, you cannot see it?)

The very first season of iZombie built to a big final battle sequence at a butcher shop named Meat Cute (pun 1!). The second season of iZombie constructed to a large final battle sequence where energy drink company Max Rager (pun 2!) was purchased by Fillmore Graves Enterprises (pun 3!), and then a full-scale zombie outbreak took place. But according to creators Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright at the show’s Comic-Con panel, the upcoming third season will break that cycle.

At the finish of season two, Liv Moore (Rose McIver) found that there are several far more zombies out in the world, and they’re preparing for an all-out war against humanity. The upcoming third season will be about Liv selecting a side: humans or zombies. She decides to begin the post-zombie rampage period of her life by laying all cards on the table with her friends how they react, Thomas and Ruggiero-Wright stated, will type the crux of the season’s conflict.

Other things we discovered from the panel:

• Blaine’s (David Anders) cold, abusive dad Angus DeBeers (Robert Knepper)—last seen becoming tortured with Les Misérables prior to an extended absence—will make a not-so-triumphant return as a frozen corpse in the basement of Blaine’s funeral house.

• Peyton (Aly Michalka) will now be a series standard. Her love triangle with Ravi and Blaine will also continue.

• Mr. Boss (Kit Boss), the Seattle crime lord from season two, won’t show up in the early goings of season 3. Thomas says Boss may possibly return later in the season, but he’s not portion of the first arc.

• The writers gave McIver a list of close to 30 concepts of brains for Liv to eat in the course of the upcoming season, with the stipulation that she was only allowed to veto 1 of the acquired side-effect expertise. And however, she noted, no one described to her that she’d be consuming a dominatrix brain. (That one drew a handful of whoops from the audience.)

• At some point, we’ll meet the woman at the CDC who fired Ravi—when she walks into the Seattle PD to ask for assist with a case.

• Thomas and Ruggiero-Wright have assured McIver that as opposed to Liv’s last two paramours—Lowell in the very first season, Drake in the second—the next time she has a enjoy interest, he won’t get killed off.

Much more than 30 years ago, Carrie Henn was a 9-year-old living in London, exactly where she’d just landed a large role in what would grow to be one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time: James Cameron’s Aliens. In the 1986 smash, Henn starred as Newt, the soot-faced, wide-eyed orphan whose family has been wiped out by xenomorphs, and who develops a close to-familial bond with Ripley, the creature-cratering heroine played by Sigourney Weaver. And if you thought that hanging around the set filled with multi-mouthed monsters (not to mention James Cameron) was scary for a young kid, you are right—though, as it turns out, Hehn’s fears had absolutely nothing to do with her acid-drooling co-stars.

“I wasn’t nervous about being on set, because I knew everyone, and they had been quite friendly,” Henn mentioned in the course of a current cease at the WIRED Cafe for the duration of Comic-Con International, exactly where the film is celebrating its 30th anniversary. “The aliens were all my friends, wearing suits. I was in fact most nervous about going to the cafeteria for lunch, because I had to go in-character as Newt, and I thought everybody would be staring at me. I didn’t have any notion that everybody else was going to be dressed up, as well. My tutor in fact gave me a big pair of sunglasses to put on when I went in. But it turned out not to be such a large issue.”

Henn had gotten the element following a meeting with Weaver, who’d flown on the Concorde to London to test out their on-screen chemistry. “I was excited, due to the fact I was like, “She was in Ghostbusters! How cool is this?”, Henn remembered. The slow-creating Newt-Ripley relationship—they begin off skeptical of a single another, but eventually develop a de facto mother-daughter bond—has always been the heart of Aliens, culminating in the film’s most renowned moment, in when Ripley, having ultimately tracked down the abducted Newt, confronts the Queen alien-turned-kidnapper and delivers one particular of the most delightfully bitchy lines in movie history.

According to Henn, who nonetheless keeps in touch with Weaver, the two actress’ bond was evident from the get-go. “Immediately, we hit it off,” she mentioned. “She took me below her wings when we were filming, because I was so inexperienced. I can’t describe my connection with her, due to the fact she’s a lot more than just a friend—what you see on screen is genuinely how we really feel about each and every other.”

Even although Henn was only 10 when Aliens was released, she has a vivid recall of her days on the set. Her preferred scene to shoot? The one in which Newt, stuck chest-high in water, is snatched up by a towering alien—a terrifying sequence, and a single that gave most other ten-year-olds nightmares for years to come. But for Henn, it was mainly a opportunity to goof about. “The first assistant director had actually had somebody keep there overnight, to make positive the water stayed warm,” she mentioned. “But it was actually too warm for me, so I would sit up on bars on the side, and the alien and I would stay up there, kicking our feet in the water.”

Aliens would prove to be Henn’s only major acting role: By the time the film was released, she and her family members had moved back to the United States, and she quickly decided to pursue a profession in education (she now teaches fourth grade in Northern California sometimes, one particular of her students will bring in an Aliens DVD for her to sign). But she nevertheless finds time to check out conventions, and this spring, in celebration of Aliens Day, she watched the movie for the 1st time in almost a decade. “It’s very weird, due to the fact I have a daughter who’s now the age I was when I made the movie, and she’s like my clone,” Henn said. “So as I’m watching it, it’s like watching my daughter up there.” Newt, there it is!
