Cersei_GOT

All the buildup is done.

Now the real war begins. If you thought your anticipation for season seven of Game of Thrones couldn’t get any higher, this breathtaking first trailer should do the trick. In a sense, the trailer probably tells us how the entire season will unfold. First we have everyone beating their chests and proclaiming why they’re the rightful heir to the throne. Then something catastrophic happens (the Walkers coming south?) that finally brings everyone to their senses in that they need to unite to bring down this other-worldy force.

Will Cersei play along? Can Jon and Dany unravel their shared history? What part will our favorite young assassin Arya have?

Some many questions and the answers begin on July 16.

Spiderman

That first superhero gig is always tough. In the third trailer for Spiderman: Homecoming, we find Peter Parker embarking on his first crime-fighting excursions and seeking to validate his worth to mentor Tony Stark (Iron Man). The danger increases and we’re left wondering if Spidey is in way over his head when nearly killed by The Vulture.

Spiderman: Homecoming hits theaters on July 7.

Wonder_Woman

We’re arrived at the fourth and final trailer for the much-anticipated Wonder Woman movie dropping June 2. This time we get more insight on the immense danger to mankind that Dr. Poison represents, and also some more clips expanding on Diana’s motivations for leaving her homeland. So far, there’s nothing we’ve seen that would make you believe this film won’t deliver. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

Battlefront2_Maul

For those Star Wars fans needing a holdover until The Last Jedi’s Christmas release, look no further than Battlefront II.

Electronic Arts listened to the fans and have added an intriguing single-player mode that puts you in the character of Iden, an elite stormtrooper who leads a group of Empire loyalists after the Death Star’s destruction. Add to that an expanded multi-player mode, new favorites like Rey and Kylo Ren, and new customization modes that will surely give Star Wars fans the immersive experience they crave.

Battlefront II hits stores on November 17.

 

TheLastJedi

Our favorite saga returns this Christmas with Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Rey is beginning her Jedi training with Luke Skywalker. Finn is off to parts unknown to recover from near death at the hands of Kylo Ren. Speaking of Kylo, let’s hope he’s leveled up after getting his ass handed to him by a Force rookie in Rey.

The most interesting part of the trailer comes with Luke’s statement of “The Jedi must come to an end.” That begs the question — is Luke training Rey to save the galaxy or purge it? We’ll find out soon enough.

Thor_Ragnarok_Hulk

Is third time the charm? Look, if we’re honest, we can admit that the Thor movies haven’t exactly set the world on fire. Sure, they’re tolerable, but they’ve always felt like holdovers and nonessential while we wait for the big dogs (Captain America, Iron Man).

Thor: Ragnarok might change that. Reportedly, the storyline will factor heavily into Infinity Wars via this film’s focus on the Reality Gem. The tone, from the font of the title to the musical selections, shows a strong influence from Guardians of the Galaxy. We have a sinister villain in Hela (Cate Blanchett), marking the first time in the Marvel universe we see a woman possessing this type of cosmic power. And finally, parts of the well-received Planet Hulk comic storyline will get to play out in this movie.

No confirmation yet on the release date.

Tupac_AllEyezOnMe

After several “teaser” trailers over the last few months, we now have the official trailer for the Tupac biopic All Eyez On Me. The clip essentially gives us the overview of the film in Pac’s struggle to reconcile his black revolutionary roots with the pull of the streets and rap superstardom. The film hits theaters on June 16.
