And then there were two. We finally have an official trailer for the upcoming FreeForm Marvel series Cloak & Dagger, starring Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph. For the uninitiated, the story revolves around two teenagers from contrasting backgrounds brought together by newly acquired supernatural powers. As their bond deepens, feelings of love and the tragic history of their powers further complicate matters.

What are these said powers? Cloak is the living personification of darkness and can use it as a deadly weapon that envelops enemies and manipulates environments. Dagger is his opposite in that she personifies light and uses it to create weapons (as briefly seen in this trailer).

It’ll be interesting to see if show opts for a main antagonist like the Netflix shows, or goes the route of the early 80s comics which focused on the duo combating the drug trade. All questions will be answered when the 10-episode series debuts on FreeForm June 7.



In the early 80s, there was no concept of a female Hip-Hop star. That changed with Lolita “Roxanne Shante” Gooden, who emerged from the Queensbridge projects on the strength of the classic “Roxanne Roxanne.” Her story finally takes center stage with the new trailer for the biopic Roxanne Roxanne (March 23).

The Netflix original was written and directed by Michael Larnell, and produced by the makers of Fruitvale Station and Dope. The films stars Nia Long, Mahershala Ali and newcomer Chante Adams as Shante.



Atlanta – Season 2 Trailer

In less than 2 weeks, Robbin’ Season begins. The official trailer for season two of the critically-acclaimed series Atlanta is here. We’re low on plot details, but after that first season, do we really need any? Season two premieres on March 1.


After the emotional gut punch that’ll likely occur in May’s Infinity War, Marvel fans will be treated to more light-hearted fare this summer with Ant-Man and the Wasp.


The sequel to the 2015 hit finds Scott Lang (Antman) struggling to adjust to civilian life after his role in Civil War. When a new threat arises from the anti-capitalist mercenary Ghost (played by Hannah John-Kamen), Lang’s mentor Hany Pym (Michael Douglas) enlists his daughter Hope (Evangeline Lilly) to assume the mantle of The Wasp to even up the odds. The history of Wasp will get further backstory courtesy of Michelle Pfieffer, who plays Janet Van Dyne, the wife of Hank and the original Wasp who was lost to the Quantum Realm years ago during a botched mission.

I wonder if the Giant Pet Ant will make an appearance this time around. We’ll find out when Ant-Man and The Wasp hits theaters on July 6.



10 years after they first terrorized our hearts on the big screen, the heartless masked family know as the Strangers return for the much-anticipated sequel Prey At Night.

We start with the same premise from the original. Happy couple seeks a quiet weekend in a residence far from civilization, only to receive a creepy knock at the door from the monotone daughter of the killers. Then the fun begins. We see images of the victims being stalked in a swimming pool and a car crashing through the living room.

But things are also different this time. The victims are a family of four and have several guns to combat their assailants. Have the Strangers finally met their match? We’ll find out on March 9.


There’s a lot to unpack from the just-released official trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

We start with Luke Skywalker beginning his training of Rey and being horrified of the natural ability she possesses. Why? Because it reminds him of the power that was unleashed during the destruction of the last Jedi Academy (committed by Kylo Ren and the First Order). We see images of the temple burning and will likely get flashbacks of the whole incident.

We also see Rey seeming to confront the mysterious General Snoke, and getting the worst of it. Snoke’s voiceover has him marveling over someone’s power, but is it Rey or Kylo’s?

Speaking of Kylo, he has a lot of making up to do after getting bested last movie by a light saber rookie. He looks to be doing that in spades with a space battle sequence that mirrors Luke’s destruction of the first Death Star. However, this time the target appears to be Princess Leia. Will Kylo’s promise to “bury the past” mean killing both his parents?

Finn is well-recovered from his injuries and locked in a duel with General Phasma. This is an intriguing battle for several reasons. One, Finn appears to have progressed from comedic and skittish sidekick to a capable fighter and leader. Second, we get to see how deadly Phasma is in hand to hand combat, which she has to be considering her place in Snoke’s army.

Finally, we have what I believe is misdirection in Kylo appearing to offer his hand to Rey for an alliance. I can’t see them giving that away in a trailer, meaning this is possibly two separate scenes (Kylo in the burning temple and Rey training with Luke or facing Snoke).

All questions get answered on December 15.


The world can’t be saved alone. That theme forms the basis of the latest trailer for Justice League, aptly titled “Heroes.”

Like most ensemble films, we get glimpses of the heroes struggling to succeed on their own, driving home the importance of joining forces to take out the cosmic threat of Steppenwolf. Also, the fallout of Superman’s death in Batman vs. Superman looks to play heavily into the cinematic universe.

Justice League hits theaters on November 17.
