Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released a Japanese trailer for Kong: Skull Island which includes new footage revealing new shots of the skullcrawlers and some freaky giant spiders.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Kong: Skull Island” reimagines the origin of the mythic Kong in a compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. In the film, a diverse team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they’re crossing into the domain of the mythic Kong.

WB Taps David S. Goyer and Justin Rhodes to Write ‘Green Lantern Corps’

After announcing Green Lanter Corps for their DC slate a few years ago, the film is finally going to come to fruition over at Warner Bros. where it is said the studio is aggressively moving forward on the project. Deadline reports David S. Goyer and Justin Rhodes have been tapped to pen the script. The film will feature both Hal Jordan and John Stewart in what is said to be Lethal Weapon in space.

While that sounds like a perfect influence to bring the two Green Lanterns together, it’s hard to get excited when the entire DCEU is such a mess these days. Goyer knows his way around superheroes but his work is usually hit or miss with hits like Batman Begins and Man of Steel and duds like Jumper. Goyer’s credits also include The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises but in reality he actually had nothing to do with the writing of those films.

As of now, the film does not have a director, however. George Miller has been rumored to be in talks to direct in the past. When Green Lantern Corps was originally announced it was set for release in 2020. That has yet to change but at this point, nothing about the DCEU is certain.

Woody Harrelson Confirms His Role as a Mentor to Han Solo

Just yesterday, Woody Harrelson officially joined the cast of the young Han Solo film which is getting underway at Pinewood studios in London. The actor has been rumored to play a character who serves as a mentor to the slimy no good swindler but until now that has remained just a rumor.

In a recent chat with Mashable on Facebook, Harrelson confirmed he would indeed be a mentor to Solo but also revealed a new tidbit regarding the character:

“I’m a mentor to Han, but I’m also a bit of a criminal. I don’t think I should say much more than that because the Force is not allowing me.”

Harrelson joins the cast with Alden Ehrenreich starring as the young Han Solo as well as Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian. Emilia Clarke also joined the cast recently in a role that is still currently unknown. President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy has described the young Han Solo film as a western with a color palette influenced by the paintings of Frederic Remington. The script has been penned by Star Wars writing veteran Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan. With cinematographer Bradford Young on board, the film has the potential to have a bold look and feel that could strike a perfect balance between humor and drama.

The Untitled Han Solo Story is slated to hit theaters May 25, 2018, however, there is a rumor the film could be shifted to December 13, 2018.

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-2-12-50-pm

The upcoming feature film reboot of the Fox Kids series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is a major departure from the original series. It is essentially a total reimagining featuring a much darker and more mature take as opposed to the colorful and campy children’s series.

Power Rangers Now has reported that the film has officially received a PG-13 rating. As we have seen the in the trailer, the film with real teenage issues such as bullying as the characters struggle to find their place in the world.

After an incredible teaser trailer that got the world’s attention, myself and many fans have begun to temper their excitement having yet to see a full trailer that features the Rangers in their full suits and in action with their Zords with only two months left to go until the film’s release. But chances Lionsgate is saving the premiere of the official trailer until the Superbowl when they’ll have the chance to capture the world’s attention once more.

Power Rangers hits theaters on March 24, 2017.

The film stars Dacre Montgomery as Jason Lee Scott (Red Ranger), RJ Cyler as Billy Cranston (Blue Ranger), Naomi Scott as Kimberly Hart (Pink Ranger), Becky G as Trini Kwan (Yellow Ranger), Ludi Lin as Zack Taylor (Black Ranger), Bill Hader as Alpha 5, Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, and Bryan Cranston as Zordon.

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

New 24: Legacy Trailer Features The Return of Tony Almeida

Screen Shot 2017-01-08 at 2.53.14 PM.png

In just a few weeks, the pulse-pounding real-time format series 24 returns to Fox in the form of a reboot titled 24: Legacy starring Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton).

The latest trailer for the series features the return of the return of the former head of CTU turned terrorist Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard). Executive Producer Manny Coto stressed in a recent interview with EW that new viewers won’t need to have seen the previous series, however, Tony’s troubled past will come into play:

This is just a character who has a certain past we need to explicate. And Tony’s dark past comes back to haunt Rebecca in some way.”

Tony was last seen in prison on the special features for 24: Live Another Day in a short film pleading for his release from prison so that he could make up for his sins. The short film closed ominously as Tony looked through a pair of spyglasses (slipped to him by the DOJ), mapping his escape route out of prison but it seems he never made his way out.

The clock resets Sunday, February 5th after the Superbowl.

Tom Holland Confirms Spider-Man Will Appear in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Coming as no great surprise, the appearance of Spider-Man in Avengers: Infinity War has been confirmed by the actor behind the web-slinger himself, Tom Holland.

Tweets from twitter account TomHollandItaly reveal snapshots from an interview with Holland telling Vogue Magazine:

“It is they who convinced the Marvel (Downey and Evans) .. the producers wanted to be sure that I was the right person before you entrust three films over the next four years, including ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’”

The amount of Spider-Man in Infinity War is still unknown but after stealing the show in Captain America: Civil War, the character obviously gels incredibly well with the Avengers and it would be a mistake not to include him in what will undoubtedly be the biggest Marvel movie of all time. The film is currently rolling into production and slated to hit theaters May 4, 2018.
