"Hannibal took someone from you ..."
Last week we learned the bum out news that NBC has decided to push back the release of Hannibal season 3 to the summer (after we presumed it would be released as usual in February) and today we get out first look at the forthcoming season. NBC has released the first trailer for Hannibal season 3 and as you can see above, the action picks up where season 2 left off and will include exciting new twists on the Hannibal Lecter story from the Thomas Harris books Hannibal Rising and Red Dragon (including a new original story for Dr. Lecter). Hannibal Lecter is on the run and Will Graham is on the hunt. Will this game of cat and mouse end up with the mouse consuming the cat? We’re gonna hafta wait until the summer to find out … but, as I said before, it will be SO worth the wait. Have you started watching yet (Shannon)?

Because the world can never have too many Mortal Kombat video games, I am happy to pass along the gameplay trailer embedded above that gives us our first look at the latest installment of the Mortal Kombat video game series Mortal Kombat X. As you can see, classic MK characters like Rayden, Scorpion, Kitana and Goro (!!!!!!!!!!) are included in this first trailer — along with some new characters. I’ve been playing Mortal Kombat for about 23 years and, honestly, I never get tired of the game. This first look at Mortal Kombat X looks so great … I might need to get myself a video game console so I can play it!

Coming next Xmas
After the excellent job that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler did last night as hosts of The Golden Globe Awards, Universal Pictures is teasing us today with an upcoming movie that stars Tina and Amy as sisters. The good news is that this first teaser clip looks very promising. The bad news is that we have to wait until the end of the year for Sisters to be released in theaters. Have a look at this teaser clip above and let’s start counting down the days until Tina and Amy appear on the big screen together this Xmas.
"We're murderers, Francis"
On December 1, we learned that the third season of House of Cards will be released in full on Netflix on February 27. Last night, right after Kevin Spacey won a Golden Globe award for his work on HoC, Netflix released the first full trailer for the upcoming third season of the show … which you can watch in full above. As you can see, the tense scenes of the forthcoming season are punctuated by a snarling, anxious musical score that, if my ears do no deceive me, was created by
Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails UPDATE: PITNB reader CdnJess informs me that the song is by the band A Perfect Circle. This is a very exciting first trailer for House of Cards season 3. I can’t wait for the release of this new season of HoC!

But, some bad news ...
AMC has just released an extended trailer for the series premiere of the Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul which will premiere on Sunday February 8 (the same day that The Walking Dead returns from their winter hiatus) and as you can see in the embed above, this new trailer features mostly footage from the show that hasn’t been shown in earlier trailers. I fall more and more in love with the idea of this show the more I see of it. BUT, I do have some bad news about Better Call Saul … altho the potential for guest appearances by Breaking Bad characters Walt (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse (Aaron Paul) has been suggested, the characters will NOT be appearing in the first season of the show. They may appear at some point but they will not be appearing in BCS season 1. Even still, the show looks great and I have a feeling it’s going to be a massive, massive hit.

'Let's Kill Ward's Wife' stars Foley, Patrick Wilson, and other hotties
If you’re following me on Instagram, you already know that the past few months have been very cool for me, at least in terms of my work. One major highlight was my interview with Scott Foley, after which I received many-a-crazed text message from friends and family members. It was awesome. As a long time Scandal fan, and proud, unwavering member of Team Jake, I practically fell over myself when reps for his movie reached out to me. It took everything in my to reply with, “Yes, I’d be interested in interviewing Scott Foley” as opposed to, “SPLOOOOOOOSH YESPLEASEMORETHANKYOUMMMHGSGAIUG” but I did it, and we had a great talk about his directorial debut, Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife.

In Theaters July 17
Thus far we’ve seen an ant-sized teaser video and a human-sized teaser video for the first full trailer for the upcoming Marvel Studios superhero movie Ant-Man. Today we get to see the actual first trailer for the film. The trailer, which you can watch in full above, debuted during the limited series premiere of the new Marvel Studios superhero TV series Agent Carter which aired on ABC last night … and then it was immediately released online. I think it’s a great first look at the movie, particularly for those of us who aren’t familiar with this character or his mythos. A first poster has also been released for Ant-Man, you can see it below. More »

Behold the WWI Flying Ace
In March of last year, we got our first look at the newly animated versions of Charles Schultz‘s beloved Peanuts characters as they will appear in their first major motion picture later this year. In November, we got to check out the first trailer for the Peanuts movie. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for The Peanuts Movie which, as you can see in the embed above, is all about Snoopy as the World War I Flying Ace taking to the sky to battle his nemesis The Red Baron. While I still find it a tiny bit weird to see these characters animated in this way, I do get the feeling that this new movie will give us the same feel that we have come to expect from Peanuts. Check out the trailer, see what you think. The Peanuts Movie will open in theaters on November 6.
3. GONE GIRL, 2. SELMA, 1. ----
Yes, Shannon is a rebel, and dares to post this three days into January!!! Well, as I wrote on Instagram, I was scrambling to see a couple of big movies before I wrote this, and in the past week I watched Selma, Top 5, Wild, and Boyhood—and only one was a major disappointment. Click inside for my favorite movies—blockbusters, indies, and documentaries—of 2014!
Also starring Rihanna, obviously
So now you have one more reason to go see the new Annie movie, which I’ve heard is really fun—plus Quvenzhané Wallis earned herself a Golden Globe nomination. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have reunited on-screen again, which makes this fake movie trailer some sort of bizarre, That 70s Show/Twilight crossover. Seriously, you have to see this to believe it. The new parents are the stars of the upcoming movie (just kidding, it’s not upcoming) MoonQuake Lake, and this parody trailer is so ridiculous, I love it. Click inside for more!
