international-star-wars-trailer

It’s only a few weeks before the latest installment of the Star Wars saga storms in to wreak havoc at the box office. If you hate crowds, definitely steer clear of movie theaters on December 18. It’s going to be cray.

A brand new Japanese trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has debuted. Surprisingly, there’s plenty of new footage not included in the previous clips. If you’re hoping to finally get a glimpse of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, you’re out of luck. Still no sign of him. Instead, the new one features Daisy Ridley’s Rey character prominently. Check out the trailer below featuring more stunning scenes.

2013 saw the battle of the warring White House flicks. Both White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen dealt with similar plots of terrorist attacks at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The latter raked in less at the box office but delivered a bigger profit due to a smaller budget. Naturally, a sequel was greenlit.

After the British Prime Minister passes away, his funeral in London becomes a target of a terrorist organization. Gerard Butler finds himself in the position to save the day once again. Aaron Eckhart, Mrogan Freeman, Angela Bassett and Melissa Leo also return for the sequel.

London Has Fallen heads to theaters on March 4, 2016. Check out the first full-length trailer below. It feels like Air Force One meets Die Hard. Not a bad combo.

alice-through-the-looking-glass

Tim Burton may have handed over directing duties to James Bobin (Muppets Most Wanted) but it still looks like a Burton film. The first trailer for the Alice In Wonderland sequel is as trippy, visually-stunning and whimsical as its predecessor. I suppose with Burton staying on as producer, it helped in doing so.

Johnny Depp reprises his role as the Mad Hatter, while Mia Wasikowska plays Alice once again. Also returning for Alice Through The Looking Glass are Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, Michael Sheen as the voice of the White Rabbit, and Alan Rickman as the voice of the Blue Caterpillar. Sacha Baron Cohen is the most notable newbie in the film. He’ll play Time, a villain who is part human, part clock.

Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27, 2016. Check out the first trailer below.

Alice Through The Looking Glass Synopsis

Alice Kingsleigh (Wasikowska) has spent the past few years following in her father’s footsteps and sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland and her friends the White Rabbit (Martin Sheen), Absolem (Alan Rickman), the Cheshire Cat (Stephen Fry) and the Mad Hatter (Depp), who is not himself. The Hatter has lost his Muchness, so Mirana (Hathaway) sends Alice on a quest to borrow the Chronosphere, a metallic globe inside the chamber of the Grand Clock which powers all time. Returning to the past, she comes across friends – and enemies – at different points in their lives, and embarks on a perilous race to save the Hatter before time runs out.

chi-raq-movie-trailer

“Welcome to Chi-Raq! Land of pain, misery and strife,” says Samuel L. Jackson.

Spike Lee has courted controversy throughout his film career. His latest, Chi-raq (portmanteau of Chicago and Iraq), tackles the subject of gun and gang violence in Chicago’s rough South Side. The film is described as a satire based on the Greek comedy, Lysistrata, by Aristophanes.

Teyonah Parris plays Lysistrata, a woman who organizes a sex strike to protest black-on-black violence on the South Side. Joining Parris and Jackson is a star-studded cast which includes Nick Cannon, John Cusack, Wesley Snipes, Angela Bassett and Jennifer Hudson. The topic definitely hits close to home for J-Hud. The Chicago native lost her mother and 7-year-old nephew due to a violent crime back in 2008.

Chi-raq opens in select theatres on December 4, just in time for awards consideration. It’ll then move to Amazon Prime. Speaking of which, the drama is the first original movie from Amazon Studios. Check out the trailer below.

the-peanuts-movie-trailer

“They are friends who changed the way we see ourselves by remaining true to themselves,” written at the beginning of the clip. That’s exactly what Charlie Brown and his crew have done for multiple generations. Everyone has a favorite Peanuts character. I loved me some Lucy and Marcie :)

To commemorate the 65th anniversary of the beloved comic strip, a new 3D full-length feature film hits theaters next week on November 6. Believe it or not, it’s their big-screen debut. Insane.

The premise of The Peanuts Movie finds Snoopy going up against his old arch-rival, The Red Baron. Meanwhile, Charlie Brown tries to win the affection of the Little Red-Haired Girl, who has just moved to the neighborhood.

Compared to most animated films today, the Peanuts gang seems a little simple and perhaps unrelatable to kids of this generation. Hopefully, I’m wrong. I loved these guys growing up. Check out the trailer below.

zac-efron-dirty-grandpa-trailer

Dirty Grandpa!!! More like ‘Hot Grandson.’ The first trailer for the upcoming comedy just dropped and though it co-stars Robert De Niro, it’s all about Zac Efron. The 28-year-old stud is practically shirtless in every scene. Praise baby Jesus!!!

Just days before marrying his boss’ uptight daughter, Efron heads on one last adventure with his foul-mouthed grandfather played by De Niro. With them in the spring break capital of the world, Daytona Beach, naturally the twosome get into plenty of drunken trouble.

Julianne Hough, Aubrey Plaza, Adam Pally, Dermot Mulroney and Zoey Deutch round out the cast. Dirty Grandpa gets filthy in theaters on January 22, 2016. Watch Efron below, play flip cup, flex his muscles on stage, do the Macarena wearing pink underwear and other silly antics.

ridiculous-6-movie-poster

Adam Sandler isn’t having the best luck at the box office these days. The once-reliable blockbuster maker has released flop after flop in recent years. Jack and Jill, That’s My Boy, Pixels anyone? Maybe, the 49-year-old actor will have better luck with Netflix.

Ridiculous 6 is the first of the comedian’s lucrative four-picture deal with the streaming site. Inspired by the iconic 1960 western The Magnificent Seven, the parody film boasts a roster of well-known names. Taylor Lautner, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell, Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz, Harvel Keitel and David Spade. Even Vanilla Ice makes an appearance.

Sandler plays a man who grew up as an orphan among an Indian tribe. Given the premise, naturally controversy circled production. Back in April, several Native American actors walked off due to jokes they found offensive. Not surprising.

Ridiculous 6 premieres on December 11 on Netflix. Watch the trailer below.
