The upcoming live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johansson is only a few short months away and it’s time for the marketing campaign to start ramping up to the film’s release. Paramount has released an international trailer for the film which is essentially a remix of the US trailer with a few bits of new footage offering glimpses of The Major in action as well as a shot of her creation from the opening titles of the film. I can’t help but still be so impressed by Rupert Sanders as he looks to have crafted an extraordinary vision that remains completely faithful to the anime.

The film stars Scarlett JohannsonPilou AsbækMichael PittJuliette Binoche, Kaori Momoi, Rila Fukushima, Chin Han, Danusia Samal, Lasarus Ratuere, Yutaka Izumihara, and Tuwanda Manyimo. Written by Jamie Moss. Directed by Rupert Sanders.

Only four months away from its theatrical debut, Disney has released an international trailer for the upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. The new trailer is a sort of remix of the first teaser trailer and the first official trailer but captivates the heart nonetheless.

Beauty and the Beast hits theaters March 17, 2017.

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’: International Trailer #2 Reveals Jyn Erso’s Mother and More

The second international trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has arrived. The trailer reveals actress Valene Kane (The Fall) as Lyra Erso, the mother of the film’s protagonist Jyn Erso played by Felicity Jones.

Lyra will also be featured in the upcoming Rogue One prequel novel, Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel set to hit shelves on November 15th.

In addition to Lyra Erso, the trailer all but confirms that the planet of Jedha, the Mecca for the Jedi religion in the Star Wars Universe, may actually be the first planet destroyed by the Death Star rather than Alderaan. But there has to be more than meets the eye because of it is true, it would completely contradict Grand Moff Tarkin’s words when he told Princess Leia that Alderaan would be the first planet destroyed by the superweapon. Jedha also looks to be destroyed much more slowly than Alderaan was which was obliterated in an instant so it’s possible this is an early weapons test before the station was fully operational.
