Hawkeye Trailer Has a Long History of Holiday Cheer

Deck the halls with bows and arrows. It is a wonderful time of the year for Disney+, which dropped the first Hawkeye trailer down the chimney. Marvel’s latest live-action series will be a Christmas show, and Clint Barton, a.k.a Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), is re-gifting his archery set to young hero Kate Bishop (Hailee Steinfeld). Clint still has the vision to hit a target, but his hearing may not be so great anymore. We can plainly see Hawkeye’s hearing aid, which could end up being the result of an injury suffered on the show. You can watch the trailer here: The…

Hawkeye Trailer Finally Brings Captain America Musical to the Stage

He throws a mighty shield, but can Captain America carry a showtune? In Disney+’s upcoming Hawkeye miniseries, we’re about to find out. As revealed in our first official footage of the Jeremy Renner spinoff TV show, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is still mourning the absence (and death?) of Steve Rogers… and capitalizing on it with some terrific kick-turns! Indeed, Captain America: The Musical is now officially canon, albeit they refer to it as Rogers in the MCU. Apparently the hottest ticket on Broadway, the new show is at the center of the Hawkeye trailer, which begins with Clint Barton (Renner)…

Marvel’s Hawkeye Trailer Breakdown and Analysis

With What If…? still in the middle of streaming on Disney+, it’s never too early to start thinking about MCU Christmas, and the first Hawkeye trailer has arrived to let us get a feel of that expensive present way ahead of time, even as Marvel continues to add the bows (sorry) and trimmings to Clint Barton’s upcoming TV series behind the scenes. Starring Jeremy Renner reprising his role as Barton/Hawkeye and introducing Hailee Steinfeld to the MCU as his eager archery prodigy Kate Bishop, Hawkeye also boasts a supporting cast that features Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon,…

Fear the Walking Dead Season 7 Trailer Teases a Villainous Strand

The trailer for Fear the Walking Dead Season 7 has arrived, further teasing bleak imagery in the wake of Season 6’s monumental mushroom cloud climax, which effectively upgraded the spinoff’s uniquely upgraded dilemma to a nuclear zombie apocalypse. However, a prominent narrative being promoted is the apparent transformation of series-OG character Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) into a villain, one who has become fixated on making life even more difficult than it already is in this world for Morgan Jones (Lennie James).    Indeed, the official trailer shows how the series could be effectively renamed “Fear the Walking Dead or How…

The Matrix 4 Trailer Breakdown: Neo, Trinity, Morpheus, and…Smith?!

The moment Matrix fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. The next chapter of Neo, Trinity, and Morpheus’ story is almost here and Warner Bros. has a trailer to prove it. It’s an action-packed first look at Resurrections, a sequel that seems to take the franchise in new directions, and introduces quite a few new mysteries to the already complex lore of The Matrix, all accompanied by Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit.” While it refreshingly plays things very close to the chest at a time when most trailers give away 2/3 of the plot, I’ve tried my best to dissect…

The Matrix 4 Trailer Song White Rabbit Has Cut Holes in Reality for Years

Red pills, white pills, taller, small, or blue. The Matrix Resurrections trailer offers so many choices, possibilities, and questions that our head is already hurting again. Is Thomas Anderson, aka Neo (Keanu Reeves), stuck in the same old machine, or is this a new Neo wearing John Wick’s beard? Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) is in her own wonderland. We can’t trust the psychiatrist that Neil Patrick Harris is playing. The Matrix 4 trailer sends us chasing a “White Rabbit.”  When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead, you have to ask Alice. You can watch the trailer here: Lana Wachowski’s follow-up…

The Many Saints of Newark Trailer Cements Dickie Moltisanti as The Movie’s Tony

“I want to do a good deed,” Dickie Moltisanti (Alessandro Nivola) says in the second The Many Saints of Newark trailer. From the looks of the rest of it, it’s only partially out of contrition. The prequel movie to The Sopranos series is set in the gangster heyday, and centers on Tony’s (Michael Gandolfini) uncle, series creator and co-screenwriter David Chase insists. It is not a Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) origin story. Dickie is Tony here. You got a problem with that? “Young Anthony Soprano is growing up in one of the most tumultuous eras in Newark’s history, becoming a…

Leonardo DiCaprio Finally Does Comedy in Don’t Look Up Trailer, It’s Glorious

You know Leonardo DiCaprio has brilliant comic timing, right? It’s something rarely remarked upon in the press or on social media, but it’s been true since practically the beginning of his career. And it’s one of the primary reasons the first trailer for Adam McKay’s new movie, Don’t Look Up, is such a welcome delight. To  be sure, the upcoming comedy, which will be released on Netflix in time for Christmas, has plenty going for it beyond DiCaprio visibly reaching for the yucks. After all, this is a (dark) McKay comedy, and the first full-on one the now Oscar winning…

The Many Saints of Newark Trailer Song Has Paid Off for Years

The Many Saints of Newark trailer shows Dickie Moltisanti trying to do the right thing. The film is a prequel to the HBO series The Sopranos, and will give special attention to the “old school” guys who were in at the ground floor of this thing of theirs. Veteran mobsters lived up to codes, like Omerta, which means silence unto death, and followed rules. The top rule was spelled out in Martin Scorsese’s gangster classic Goodfellas: Get paid. “Business bad? Fuck you, pay me. Oh, you had a fire? Fuck you, pay me. Place got hit by lightning, huh? Fuck…

The Matrix 4 Trailer Teasers Reveal a Big Morpheus Mystery

What the hell is going on with Morpheus? That’s the question on fans’ minds after spending the last day trying to decipher all of the new Matrix Resurrections teasers released by Warner Bros. If you go to WhatIsTheMatrix.com right now, you’ll be asked to make a choice: the red pill or the blue pill. Choosing the red pill freed Neo from the simulation in 1999, and if you make the same choice on the fan site, you’ll be treated to one of several teasers depending on the time of the day. According to EW, there are 180,000 variations of the…

Wheel of Time Trailer Celebrates the Women Who ‘Protect the World’

”The power inside you: all over the world there are different names for it. But it’s one thing, One Power, and women who can touch it — we protect the world.” So says Rosamund Pike’s character, Moiraine Damodred, in the first Wheel of Time trailer released by Amazon. Even for those who have never read the Robert Jordan novels upon which the series is based, it’s clear that the powerful women featured in this preview are the ones to be reckoned with. So why is someone called “the Dark One” pursuing a small group of friends who look much less…

No Time to Die Trailer Teases Bond’s Struggles in a Changing World

James Bond has spent nearly sixty years on the big screen consistently overcoming elaborate, seemingly-insurmountable attempts on his life from an assorted array of ostentatiously megalomaniacal madmen. However, pandemic-era delays clearly have his number, having forced No Time to Die, the franchise’s long-heralded 25th official film, into over a year’s worth of release date retreats, now leaving it to finally face the music in October. Interestingly, the film’s new trailer seems to thematically parallel its potential box office plight, since our out-of-retirement MI6 agent seems perplexed against an invisible, intangibly-operating global threat. Daniel Craig’s long-heralded curtain call in the Bond…

Marvel’s Eternals trailer is here, and with an all-star cast and an Oscar-winning director (in the form of Chloe Zhao) it looks like an ambitious, surprisingly cerebral new addition to Marvel Cinematic Universe lore. It doesn’t reveal much, but what it does is more than enough to make us hopeful for all the cosmic surprises that MCU Phase 4 has in store for us. Watch the Eternals trailer here if you haven’t already…then we’ll get to talking about who all these cool new characters are! And here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of Marvel Studios: “Marvel Studios’ Eternals welcomes an exciting…

Marvel’s Eternals Trailer Song Is Sadder Than You Think

Marvel’s first full-length Eternals trailer doesn’t reveal much about the plot, but it sets a mood. The film is directed and co-written by Chloé Zhao, who won Best Picture and Best Director for Nomadland, a heart-wrenching journey through a desolate landscape. The song featured in the Eternals trailer has been evoking tragic isolation for years. It played on an endless loop in 1999’s Girl, Interrupted. It foretold the zombie apocalypse in the first teaser trailers for The Walking Dead. But the song has even sadder roots than that. “Throughout the years we have never interfered, until now,” we hear a…

Marvel’s Eternals Trailer Has First Look at Kit Harington as Black Knight

If you went into the teaser trailer for Marvel’s Eternals with relatively little foreknowledge, then you may have been surprised by the Jon Snow of it all—and, by that, I mean the fact that Kit Harington appears in this movie, alongside his Game of Thrones co-star Richard Madden (who plays Ikaris). Harrington will play the Black Knight, aka Dane Whitman. As we explained back in 2019, in the comics, Marvel’s Black Knight character is a wielder of the mystical Ebony Blade, a sword made from a meteor and blessed by Merlin that protects its user from harm (and can drive…

Loki: Miss Minutes is the Breakout Star of New Trailer

When Disney+ released the full poster for its latest Marvel series Loki, many fans had a similar reaction. “Yeah it’s nice to see Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, and Wunmi Mosaku, but…tell me more about that smiling orange clock in the bottom left.” Computer, enhance. Well, fellow Internet weirdos, ask and ye shall receive. Marvel released a new trailer for Loki on Wednesday, and featured front and center is our new fave “Miss Minutes.” Give the trailer a look below.  Entering into the Time Variance Authority is an unmooring experience. Thankfully, Miss Minutes and her inexplicable Southern drawl is here to…

Snake Eyes Trailer Teases an Origins Movie That’s Also Storm Shadow’s Story

The debut trailer for Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins wants you to know that the upcoming film is on a new level, as its accompanying rap by A$AP Ferg directly declares. While the final verdict on that bold claim will be decided once the pandemic-delayed film finally drops in July, the franchise aspirations are quite apparent. Indeed, Henry Golding’s black-clad ninja commando is complemented by signature characters such as Scarlett and Baroness, and a teased focus on the Hasbro toy property’s other popular ninja character, Storm Shadow. G.I. Joe’s silent, ass-kicking mascot himself, Snake Eyes, as played by Crazy Rich…

The Forever Purge Trailer Breakdown with Director Everardo Gout

For one night a year, all crime is legal, including murder. For the rest of the year, America is peaceful and crime free. That was James DeMonaco’s original premise for The Purge, and the franchise is now onto its fifth – and ostensibly final – installment, The Forever Purge.  This one asks: what if some folks felt like one night just wasn’t enough? Based on a script by DeMonaco and once again under the Blumhouse roof, The Forever Purge is directed by Everardo Gout best known for Days of Grace and his work on National Geographic sci-fi Mars. Den of Geek…
