Trey Songz is the latest artist to jump on the reality TV craze with a new series entitled Tremaine the Playboy. Taking its cue from The Bachelor and Flavor of Love, the show will have a bevy of IG models… excuse me… a bevy of ambitious young women vying for Trey’s attention. The show will be hosted by Draya Michele and Steelo Brim. If bad acting and fuckery are right up your alley, this looks to be your show.

Right now there isn’t a release date, but this is scheduled to run as a web series. More info will be released soon via TremaineThePlayboy.com.

13 years after the end of season four, Samurai Jack fans can rejoice once again as the critically-acclaimed series will return for a fifth and final season March 11 on Cartoon Network.

After premiering two years ago at the Toronto Film Festival, the horror thriller The Blackcoat’s Daughter will finally reach a worldwide audience on March 31.

Directed by Oz Perkins and starring Emma Roberts, the film’s creepy trailer revolves around an ominous Catholic shool and a town with sinister secrets. The tense atmosphere reminds me of 2016’s The Witch, likely meaning the movie is a slow burn and heavy on psychological horror.

We’ll find out for sure on March 31.

The young mutant X-23 pops her claws and shows off her brutal skills in the final trailer for the much-anticipated Logan. This trailer shows Logan’s value to her as a reluctant mentor hoping the quell her savagery, much like Wolverine had to do in the wake of escaping the Weapon X program.

The most interesting scene comes early when we see Logan and Professor X discussing an X-Men comic book. This signals to the viewer that the passage of time has reduced the superteam to myth status.

Logan hits theaters March 3.
