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. Reyย 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.

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.

And then there were four. All the brutal killings, intrigue and supernatural events have left us with four transcendent figures that will determine the fate of Westeros: Queen Cersei, Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and The Night King. Will a single victor emerge, or will they all perish as the world burns? We’ll find out on July 16.

Are you ready to float? After months of anticipation, we return to Derry, Maine for our first look at the monster known as It. Playing the terrifying clown is Bill Skarsgard. For those concerned about the young actor living up to Tim Curry’s Penny wise, the Georgie scene might eliminate your fears.

It comes to theaters on September 8.

 

Spiderman_IronMan_Homecoming

The return of our favorite web-slinger draws closer. The second trailer for Spiderman: Homecoming is masterful in giving fans a clear look at the motivations of the franchise’s newest Spidey in Tom Holland.

We find out that young Spidey is continuing his mentorship under a wiser Tony Stark (Iron Man), who seeks to prevent his apprentice from repeating the mistakes he himself made in Civil War. Spiderman’s first test comes from the ruthless Vulture (Michael Keaton), who threatens everything Spidey holds dear and forces the teenager to grow up quickly.

Homecoming hits theaters on July 7.

Justice_League

Justice for all! The long-awaited trailer for Justice League is here. Heavy emphasis is placed on the newcomers to the DC cinematic universe, namely Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash.

The tone and look of the movie will give you flashbacks of Suicide Squad, which can be good or terrible depending on your stance on that film. Trendy music and jokes aboundย so the success of Justice League will come down to how well they pace the new character origins against the looming threat of Darkseid and his minions. And perhaps most importantly, it looks like we’re finally getting a project where Aquaman gets some god damned respect!

The absence of Superman looms large, but it’s hard to imagine we don’t see the the team’s flagship leader resurrected (note the Lois Lane appearance). All questions get answered in November.
