This isn’t your typical biopic subject. William Francis Lee III, better known as Bill “Spaceman” Lee, was equally known for his antics on and off the field.

As a ball player, he was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame as the team’s record-holder for most games pitched by a left-hander (321) and the third-highest win total (94) by a Red Sox southpaw. He was also memorable for his use of the Leephus pitch, a personalized variation of the eephus pitch.

Off the field, his counterculture behavior, including speaking in defense of Maoist China, population control, pro marijuana use and supporting Greenpeace made him stand out. And that’s just the tip of the irreverent iceberg.

Though his professional career ended in 1982 when the Montreal Expos released him, he’s still playing for the San Rafael Pacifics of the independent North American League at age 65. Definitely an interesting life.

Josh Duhamel plays the former MLB pitcher. The film, based on Lee’s autobiography The Wrong Stuff, follows his life following his release by the Expos. Spaceman lifts off August 19. Check out the trailer below.

Spaceman Movie Synopsis

From the executive producer of ‘Bull Durham’ and ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ comes SPACEMAN, the mostly-true story of former all-star MLB pitcher Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee. In the twilight of a long career as one of baseball’s all-time great eccentrics, Lee (Josh Duhamel) is cut from the Montreal Expos in 1982. Though Lee finds himself blackballed by the rest of the league for his outspoken politics (his views being “somewhere to left of Che Guevara”) and notoriously enthusiastic drug use, he refuses to quit the game. As of 2016, he still hasn’t.

June 16, 2016 would’ve marked his 45th birthday. It’s only fitting the first trailer for his biopic debuts on this day.

All Eyez on Me, originally titled Tupac, will focus on the career of the legendary rapper, from his early years all the way to that fatal drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996.

Relative newcomer Demetrius Shipp, Jr. was cast to play the slain rapper. Jamal Woolard who played The Notorious B.I.G. in the 2009 film Notorious will also play Biggie Smalls in this film. Also starring are Danai Gurira as Afeni Shakur, Stefon Washington as Puff Daddy, Grace Gibson as Faith Evans and Kat Graham as Jada Pinkett.

If Straight Outta Compton proved anything, there’s massive money to be made from hip-hop autobiographical films. All Eyez On Me should follow suit. Check out the teaser trailer below.

Pete’s Dragon is the latest from Disney’s vault to get a reboot. The mouse studio just released the full official trailer and it looks like it’ll be a heartwarming affair.

The reimagining of the cherished family film, still tells the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. Unlike the whimsical original 1977 film, though, the new version isn’t a musical. The CGI live action film takes on a decidedly more dramatic tone, which is pretty much the direction Disney has taken with their recent remakes.

Pete’s Dragon (2016) Synopsis

A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film, “Pete’s Dragon” is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. “Pete’s Dragon” stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence and Oscar® winner Robert Redford. The film, which is directed by David Lower, is written by Lowery & Toby Halbrooks based on a story by Seton I. Miller and S.S. Field and produced by Jim Whitaker, p.g.a., with Barrie M. Osborne serving as executive producer.

For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliott. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

Pete’s Dragon flies into theaters on August 12. Check out the trailer below. I’m getting an E.T.-type feel-good vibe after watching the clip.

What’s your favorite thing about Earth? You might have a different answer after seeing the world through new eyes as a result of this clip.

Prior to writing this post, I had never heard of The Space Between Us. After watching the trailer though, I’m all in. Not only is it an adventure film but it’s also a star-crossed science fiction love story. Love me a tearjerker.

Asa Butterfield plays a boy who was the first person born on Mars. Because he was born on another planet, his organs can’t handle Earth’s gravity. When NASA brings him back to Earth to run more experiments, he finds a way to escape to search for a girl he’s been chatting with online played by Britt Robertson. Along the way, he experiences an adventure he’ll never forget.

The Space Between Us Synopsis

In this interplanetary adventure, a space shuttle embarks on the first mission to colonize Mars, only to discover after takeoff that one of the astronauts is pregnant. Shortly after landing, she dies from complications while giving birth to the first human born on the red planet – never revealing who the father is. Thus begins the extraordinary life of Gardner Elliot – an inquisitive, highly intelligent boy who reaches the age of 16 having only met 14 people in his very unconventional upbringing.

While searching for clues about his father, and the home planet he’s never known, Gardner begins an online friendship with a street smart girl in Colorado named Tulsa. When he finally gets a chance to go to Earth, he’s eager to experience all of the wonders he could only read about on Mars – from the most simple to the extraordinary. But once his explorations begin, scientists discover that Gardner’s organs can’t withstand Earth’s atmosphere.

Eager to find his father, Gardner escapes the team of scientists and joins with Tulsa on a race against time to unravel the mysteries of how he came to be, and where he belongs in the universe.

Gary Oldman, Carla Gugino and BD Wong also star in the movie. The Space Between Us launches into theaters on August 19, 2016. Check out the touching trailer below.

What is Morgan? I don’t know but it looks terrifying as f*ck. The first teaser for the sci-fi thriller, Morgan, doesn’t give away too much but certainly sets the tone, and it’s a frightening one at that.

The film marks the directorial debut of Luke Scott, son of acclaimed filmmaker Ridley Scott, with whom he worked for as a second unit director on The Martian and Exodus: Gods and Kings. Kate Mara plays a corporate troubleshooter sent to a remote location to meet a synthetic child prodigy all grown up. Mara is called upon because the manufactured girl is developing much more rapidly than the scientists who created her feel comfortable with.

Morgan Synopsis

A corporate troubleshooter (Kate Mara) is sent to a remote, top-secret location, where she is to investigate and evaluate a terrifying accident. She learns the event was triggered by a seemingly innocent “human,” who presents a mystery of both infinite promise and incalculable danger.

Paul Giamatti, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rose Leslie and Boyd Holbrook also star. Anya Taylor-Joy, the breakout star of The Witch, plays the titular character. Morgan begins terrorizing moviegoers on September 2. Check out the teaser below.

Beauty And The Beast Teaser Breaks Records

beauty-and-the-beast-trailer-record

It appears Disney has a potential blockbuster on their hands. That is if views translates into box office dollars.

The first teaser trailer for the studio’s big budget live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast had a monster debut. Reportedly, it generated a record 91.8 million views during its first 24 hours. I assume that number is a total from all platforms because the YouTube clip is only at nine million.

Unless I’m babysitting, I don’t normally watch animated films. But when I’m with the youngins, Toy Story, Cars and Finding Nemo are ones I enjoy watching over and over. With that in mind, naturally, I’m interested in checking out Finding Dory.

Up until now though, the sequel looked like an exact carbon copy of the original. Thankfully, the new trailer sets it apart a bit more. Watching a young Dory looking for her folks really pulls at your heartstrings. The newest trailer is the best one yet. Definitely give it a view below.

Finding Dory swims into theaters on June 17. It’ll be interesting to see if there’s still an appetite for the franchise given it’s been 13 years since the first film.
