"Our art is a reflection of our reality"
Way back in June of 2012 we first learned that the N.W.A. biopic film Straight Outta Compton was going into production but it wasn’t until June of last year that we got our first look at the cast of the forthcoming movie. Straight Outta Compton got a bit of unfavorable attention last week when Suge Knight was arrested for allegedly running over a person with his car on the movie set … but today, we get a lot of favorable attention for the film. The first trailer for Compton has been released and you can watch it above in all its NSFW red band glory. The trailer is preceded by a 1 minute introduction by Dr. Dre and Ice Cube and then the really great trailer start at around the 1 minute mark. I have to say, I’m impressed by this first look at the film. A story like N.W.A.‘s is too important to get wrong … but from what I see in this trailer, this movie will be all kinds of right. Have a look, see what you think. Straight Outta Compton hits movie theaters this summer.
Yassss! Erlich is back in full effect.
Between Girls, Togetherness, and the True Detective binge I finally just went on, I’ve been spending a terrifying, glorious amount of time with HBO Go. And I’ve been wondering when we’d finally get this little gem—the Silicon Valley Season Two trailer. Please enjoy this, and if you haven’t watched the show (hell, even if you have), please enjoy THIS amazing, epic, greatest dick joke ever, as well. Creator Mike Judge has assembled such an amazing cast with Thomas Middleditch, T.J. Miller, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, and Martin Starr, I just want to see more of these guys, everywhere. Peep the video for more!

Coming April 10
Ryan Gosling dusted off his long unused official Twitter account today to share with the world the official movie trailer for his directorial debut film Lost River which, as you may know, was filmed in Detroit, MI. We learned in December that the film will NOT be getting a wide theatrical release and will, instead, open in a handful of theaters and will be released on Video On Demand on April 10. Back in May of last year, an eerie first promo video was released but this new video is a much better trailer for the film. Check it out above and save the date, Lost River can be watched in your very own home in just a few months.
The entire series will be released on April 10
Back in October, we got our first look at what the Marvel Comics superhero Daredevil will look like in the upcoming Netflix original series based on the character and today we get to see the first trailer for the series. All episodes of Daredevil will be released on Netflix on April 10 and this trailer gives us our first taste of what we can expect. Altho Daredevil (attorney Matt Murdock by day, played by Charlie Cox) has superpowers (altho blind, all of his other senses are heightened to superhuman magnitude), it looks like he will be portrayed in a believably real way in this series (eg. he won’t wear a fancy leather costume). This is the first time Daredevil will come to life on the screen since Ben Affleck played the character in the 2003 movie Daredevil. As a long time fan of the character (Daredevil was the only comic book I read religiously in my comic book collecting youth), I am very excited that one of my favorite superheroes is getting the quality Netflix treatment. Watch the trailer above and get excited … The Man Without Fear is coming to Netflix on April 10.

Back to the Grind
Yesterday, with the release of the first teaser poster for the forthcoming male stripper sequel film Magic Mike XXL, it was suggested that the first trailer for the movie would be released today. Today, we have that trailer. Click the embed above to watch the first footage from this summer’s Magic Mike XXL and get your first taste of our fave male strippers back in action. Honestly, far too much of this 90 second trailer is focused on non-stripping but … I guess they have to save something for the movie. Have a look, Happy Hump Day!

"This will give the parents nightmares"
Back in November, we got our first look at the very exciting first trailer for the forthcoming sequel film Jurassic World and yesterday, during the Super Bowl telecast, we got to see the second trailer for the movie. Unlike many of the other movie trailers that debuted during the Super Bowl yesterday, this trailer for Jurassic World really delivered for me. Much of the footage in this second trailer is new and, yet, it definitely has that feel that reminds us why we love the original Jurassic Park movie so much. Chris Pratt as the velociraptor whisperer is so great, I am really dying to see this movie. Click the embed above to get your second, really exciting look at Jurassic World which hits theaters on June 12.

We’ve known for some time that NBC is planning to bring back Heroes as a limited sequel series titled Heroes Reborn and we learned last summer that Jack Coleman is, thus far, the only original Heroes castmember to return for this new series. Yesterday, NBC managed to sneak in the first teaser video for Heroes Reborn during the Super Bowl telecast, which you can watch in full in the embed above. Jack Coleman makes an appearance in this first look at Heroes Reborn … but make sure you watch to the end to see who else has been cast in the series.

Back in early December we got our first look at the first trailer for the reboot/sequel film Terminator: Genisys and today, just before the big game, we get to see the Super Bowl ad for Genisys that will air on Sunday. The clip doesn’t really show anything new that we didn’t see in the first trailer but it is a more concise look at the still-confusing movie to come. Check out the “big game spot” above and then click below to see a new promo poster that stars the Terminator himself. More »

The Realness Ru-turns on March 2
In early December, we learned with queens will be competing for drag royalty in the upcoming 7th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Today, we get our first look at the just-released first trailer for the new season … and we learn that the judging panel has been reconfigured with new judges. Santino Rice, one of the main judges of Drag Race since season 1, has been replaced this season with Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley (who will judge the competition alongside RuPaul and Michelle Visage). But, even tho Santino will not be one of the main judges this season, I understand he will appear as a guest judge (other guest judges this season will include Ariana Grande, Kat Dennings, Demi Lovato, Kathy Griffin, Tamar Braxton, Alyssa Milano and more). Honestly, I don’t really understand the need for such a drastic change-up of the judging panel but, honestly, the show is all about the drag queen competitors so … I’m not really worried about the quality of the show. From the look of this first trailer, it looks like we are in store for a great season of RuPaul’s Drag Race ahead. The new season premieres on Logo on Monday March 2. Who’s excited?

Back in February of last year, we first learned that Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell were cast as Fantastic Four characters Sue Storm/Invisible Girl, Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing (respectively) in the newly rebooted Marvel Studios film franchise. In August, Kate shared a cute selfie photo of the F4 group when the movie wrapped filming production. Today, just a short time ago, Marvel released the first teaser trailer for Fantastic Four, which you can watch in full above. As you can see, the tone of this new F4 movie is much different from the original Fantastic Four movies that were released in the early ’00s. We do get glimpses of The Human Torch and The Thing in their superhero forms but, for the most part, this first trailer merely teases what’s to come when Fantastic Four opens in theaters this summer. What do you think of this first look at the movie? Are you impressed?
