First Look: The ‘Point Break’ Reboot Has Released Its First Movie Trailer

"What kind of people are we dealing with here?"
The only law that matters is gravity

So … back in February of 2014 we learned officially that the remake of the 1991 movie Point Break was moving forward and a year later, we learned that altho the cast was changed up a bit, the movie was finally in filming production. Last month, we got our first look at the first promo photos for this new version of Point Break and today … today we get to see the just-released first trailer for the movie. Folks, it doesn’t look that great. Granted, this is just a first trailer but as you can see above, it looks like the movie has far too serious a feel to it for me to be able to really take it seriously. I like the clever way that some elements of the original film are updated and incorporated in this remake (the Presidents masks, in particular) but … I dunno … this first look at the new Point Break just feels … off. Check out the trailer and see what you think. This new Point Break will hit theaters in December. Does it look like a movie that you think you’d like to see?

Watch: This Video Game Trailer For Batman: Arkham Knight Features Music Composed By Trent Reznor

The Wretched
BE FEARED

Not content with being the musical mastermind of one of the greatest groups in modern music or being an Academy Award-winning film composer, Trent Reznor is now composing music for video game trailers … like this one for Batman: Arkham Knight. Reznor has LONG been a fan of video game composition. Back in the mid-’90s, Reznor composed an entirely original score for the Quake video game, years before anyone else was seriously paying attention to video game music composition. I LOVE that TR is now working on the Batman video games because, honestly, I can’t think of a better pairing. Check out the Be The Batman trailer above to hear a new version of the Nine Inch Nails song The Wretched adapted for this video game see how well Reznor‘s music works in the video game world of Batman.

Watch: Here Is A Great International Trailer For ‘Fantastic Four’

"When you change the world, Prepare to defend it"
"We are stronger together than we are apart"

Earlier today we heard from actor Michael B. Jordan about the racist comments that he’s been receiving ever since it was announced that he won the role of The Human Torch / Johnny Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot movie. Right now, we get to see MBJ and his fellow F4 castmates in a new international trailer for their movie. I can’t say that I’m yet wowed by what we’ve seen thus far of this new F4 movie (tho I am very impressed with the way Jordan is handling himself) but I’m a longtime fan of the comic book characters so I’m deffo interested in seeing this movie when it comes out on August 7.

First Look: Bill Murray Will Star In His Own Xmas Special On Netflix This December

Directed by Sofia Coppola
Have yourself 'A Very Murray Christmas'

Bill Murray has teamed up with director Sofia Coppola for a new Xmas special that will air on Netflix later this year and as you can see in the first teaser above, it looks like A Very Murray Christmas will have the same feel as their brilliant film Lost In Translation. According to Netflix, this holiday special will be “an homage to the classic variety show featuring Bill Murray playing himself, as he worries no one will show up to his TV show due to a terrible snow storm in New York City. Through luck and perseverance, guests arrive at the Carlyle hotel to help him; dancing and singing in holiday spirit.” Guest stars will include George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix, Frederic Moulin, Rashida Jones, Miley Cyrus, and more … so, yeah, it’s going to be massive. I can’t even tell you how excited I am by the prospect of Murray and Coppola working together again on a new project. There is no release date yet but this special should be out by the holidays. Ho Ho Ho!

First Look: Here Is The First Movie Trailer For ‘Batkid Begins’

"He gave everybody license ... to live their little dreams for a little bit"
Batkid to the rescue!

Remember back in November of 2013 when San Francisco, CA was turned into Gotham City so that Miles Batkid Scott could live out his Make-A-Wish dream to become Batman? Well, his story and the story of that day have been turned into a documentary film titled Batkid Begins. The first trailer for the film can be watched in full above and, as you can see, it’s a story full of heart, love and hope. I teared up a bit watching this trailer, I think you might do the same. Batkid Begins will open in select theaters on June 26.

Watch: Meet The ‘Cannibal Of Paris’ In This New Promo Video For ‘Hannibal’ Season 3

"Get a taste of Paris with Hannibal"
"You have a very good butcher"

NBC has released a new promo video for the forthcoming third season of Hannibal, which will premiere on June 4, and as you can see above we are introduced to the Cannibal of Paris. I can see in this teaser that things will get right back to normal for Dr. Hannibal Lecter, even tho he was forced to flee the US at the conclusion of last season. It would appear that living on the lam will not be much of a problem for Hannibaland his bride ;D Remember, Hannibal season 3 will premiere on NBC on June 4, you do not want to miss this show. I am so excited, I can’t even tell you.

Watch: A Full-Length Trailer For The Amy Winehouse Documentary ‘Amy’ Has Been Released

"I'm not a girl trying to be a star. I'm just a girl that sings"
"Amy was a girl that just wanted to be loved"

Back in early April, we got to see the first video teaser for the forthcoming documentary film on the life of the late pop singer Amy Winehouse. Today, we get to see the just-released full-length trailer for the film Amy. As you may know, this documentary was filmed with the full support of Amy‘s family … but once the finished film was released, the family has decided to distance themselves from the project. As I understand it, the Winehouse family (Amy‘s father Mitch Winehouse, in particular) doesn’t come off looking too great in this film and they are angry. IMHO, it sounds like they aren’t happy that the truth about Amy‘s life and death are being exposed in this very well reviewed documentary film. I wasn’t the biggest Amy Winehouse fan but her immense talent cannot be denied. This is a film that I’d be very interested in seeing, if only to be reminded of the amazing voice that has been lost to us. Amy opens in select theaters on July 3.

Watch: Zac Efron Plays An Aspiring DJ In His New Film ‘We Are Your Friends’

"FIND YOUR SOUND. FIND YOUR FUTURE."
"128 BPM, that's the magic number"

So … Zac Efron has a new movie coming out this summer but it’s not THIS movie that he has been filming lately with Robert de Niro that will feature a LOT of nekkid flesh. No, the movie that Zac will be starring in this summer is titled We Are Your Friends and it tells the tale of a down-and-out kid from the Valley named Cole Carter who wants to grow up to be a superstar DJ like Calvin Harris. Yes, this is really the plot of this feature length film. As you can see in the trailer embedded above, this movie will feature all of the usual things that you see in any given rags to riches story but with DJs. When I first heard that this movie was being filmed last year, directed by Max Joseph (of Catfish fame), I was under the impression that the story would be more … substantial. I mean, I get that I’m not the target audience for this movie and it very well may be a huge success but, yeah, this movie just doesn’t look very good to me. What do you think? Do you want to see Zac try to become a superstar DJ in We Are Your Friends? If so, you can see the movie in full when it opens on August 28.

Watch: Here Is The Second Movie Trailer For ‘Pan’

"C'mon kid, make them believe"
Welcome to Neverland

Back in November, we got to see the first movie trailer released for the forthcoming Peter Pan origin story movie titled Pan, which was followed by a short video teaser shared by Hugh Jackman in April. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for Pan which gives us a better feel for the movie overall … and which I like considerably better than the first trailer. In all honesty, Peter Pan isn’t my favorite story. The first trailer didn’t really do much to capture my fancy … but this trailer does a better job. I’m still not a crazy Peter Pan fan but this looks like a movie that I think I’d like to see. Check out the trailer and see what it does for you. Pan will open in theaters on October 9.

Watch: HBO Releases A Second Trailer For ‘True Detective’ Season 2

"Sometimes your worst self is your best self"
"We get the world we deserve"

In early April, we got to see the first teaser trailer for the forthcoming second season of True Detective season 2, which will premiere on HBO on June 21. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer video for the new season of the show and, as you can see above, a lot of dark things are teased in this new clip. The new cast of TD season 2 includes Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch … and from the looks of things thus far, it would appear that the second season of True Detective is going to bum us out considerably. Check out the trailer and save the date, True Detective season 2 cometh next month.
