"In the future, none of you are heroes ... you're legends"
Back in March we learned that Hawkgirl would be one of the new characters included in the upcoming superhero spin-off series based on characters from The CW superhero shows Arrow and The Flash and today we get our first look at that new series, titled DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The trailer embedded above gives us our first look at the series and informs us a bit about what the show will be all about. Not only does it give us our first look at Hawkgirl (played by Ciarra Renee) but it also reveals that ex-Black Canary / Sarah Lance (played by Caity Lotz) will live on as the resurrected White Canary (thank Ra’s Al Ghul for his Lazarus Pit) … AND, it gives us our first look at Atom (played by Brandon Routh) shrinking down to miniature size for the first time (which was hinted at in last night’s season finale episode of Arrow). Also in the mix are Firestorm (played by Robbie Amell and Victor Garber), Captain Cold (played by Wentworth Miller) and Heatwave (played by Dominic Purcell). The trailer also reveals that this rag tag team of heroes and villains have been culled together by Rip Hunter (played by Arthur Darvill), a time-traveling rogue that will take this team through all points of time to fight bad guys … like Vandal Savage. Watch the trailer … see what you think. There is a lot going on. It’ll be interesting to see if this ensemble cast of superheroes can work together to bring us a TV show worth watching.
"Isn't it time you discovered 'Hannibal'?"
Thus far we have seen a couple of promo trailers for the forthcoming third season of Hannibal coming to NBC in June (including a pretty sweet promo trailer from Korea) and today … we get to see a new trailer with new season 3 footage. The teaser embedded above features lots of critical acclaim heaped on the show (including a 100% rating from Rotten Tomatoes) as well as a few new scenes from the new season of the show. I am literally counting down the days until Hannibal season 3 premieres on NBC on June 4. I implore you to get caught up and watch this show. Truly, it is one of the best shows on TV right now. Swear.

"It's not a bird. It's not a plane. It's not a man."
Back in March, we got our first look at actress Melissa Benoist in character as Supergirl as she will appear in the upcoming CBS TV series. Today, we get to see the just released first trailer for the show. This trailer, which is 6 1/2 minutes long, gives us a REALLY good feel for what we can expect when Supergirl debuts this fall. As you can see above, the usual origin story elements are introduced that show us how Kara Zor-El becomes Supergirl (complete with a fun take on how she figures out her superhero costume) with a distinctive female flavor. This, my friends, is exactly what the current trend of superhero movies and TV show needs. Altho there are a bit of cheesy parts in this trailer, I really love the overall feel for this new take on Supergirl. It actually feels a bit like Ally McBeal meets Superman (and not only because Calista Flockhart co-stars). I am really charmed by this first look at the series, I’m really looking forward to Supergirl‘s television debut later this year. Click the embed above and see what you think. Supergirl will premiere on CBS this fall.

Yep, this looks NOTHING like 'Jem and the Holograms'
Yesterday we got to see a bunch of promo photos from the upcoming live-action movie adaptation of the 1980′s cartoon Jem and the Holograms and, as you should be well aware, the movie that is coming bares no resemblance at all to the original source material … except for the movie title and the character names. Gone is pretty much everything about the original cartoon that made it so special. Today, we get to see the just-released movie trailer and movie poster for this new incarnation of Jem that makes explicitly clear — this is really not a Jem and the Holograms movie. More »
THIS LOOKS SO GOOOD!!!
Last week we got to see a new trailer and a batch of promo photos for the forthcoming season of Hannibal, premiering on NBC this June. Today we get to see a bonus TV trailer for Hannibal season 3 which comes from a Korean TV network called AXN. As you can see above, this Korean trailer for Hannibal looks VERY exciting. I’m not sure if this is what we should expect when Hannibal returns next month but I like the way Koreans promote American TV shows. I am so excited, Hannibal season 3 returns (here in the US) on June 4.

"I've never even heard of the original vacation"
Last month we got our first look at the reboot/sequel to National Lampoon’s Vacation, set to hit theaters this summer, and today we get to see the just released red band trailer for the film. As you might expect from a red band trailer, there are lots of NSFW things packed into this 2 1/2 minute trailer that will likely make you laugh (I know I laughed, a lot). There are also clever nods to the original film and a look at what Chris Hemsworth is packing in his pants. Trust me, you just have to watch the trailer above to see what I mean. Make sure you watch ’til the end, believe me, it’s worth it. Vacation opens in theaters on July 29.

Fight or Die
Back in January, we got to see the first teaser trailer for the upcoming second season of The Strain, premiering on FX this summer. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer for The Strain season 2 and as you can see above, all Hell literally breaks loose on the city of NYC with vampires running amok. Having read and LOVED The Strain trilogy of books, I am very much a fan of this FX TV series, even if it does feel a bit corny at times. I enjoyed season 1 well enough to be excited for season 2. Click the embed above to get your first real look at the upcoming second season of The Strain and get ready. The Master and his minions are here. The fight for humanity is now.

"My wife and I would love to have you for dinner"
Last week we got to see the first promo posters for the forthcoming third season of Hannibal, which will premiere in June, and today we get to see a really enlightening new trailer for the new season of Hannibal. Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) has, thus far, played Dr. Hannibal Lecter‘s psychotherapist on the show … but this new trailer reveals her to be Hannibal‘s wife in the new season. Now, whether the two actually get married or are posing as husband and wife while Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) is on the lam remains to be seen. The big twist at the end of Hannibal season 2 was that Bedelia fled the country with Hannibal after he was finally revealed to be the villain of the show. I cannot WAIT to see what these two will get up to when Hannibal season 3 returns on June 4. Fannibals, sound off! What do you think of this new trailer?

"It's not bro time, it's showtime"
Yesterday we learned that the first official trailer (not counting the teaser trailer that was released back in February) for Magic Mike XXL would be released today … and here it is. As you can see in the embed above, the Magic Mike boys are back for another round of stripping … but this time, they’re taking the show on the road (in a food truck, it would appear). Stop reading and start watching this new trailer for MMXXL. Magic Mike XXL will open in theaters on July 1.

And it's kinda blah
A few days ago, we got to see the first promo photo for the upcoming sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey which is due for release in 2017. Today we get to see the first video teaser for the “thriller” sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, which is included on the DVD/Blu-Ray edition of the first film. As you can see above, this teaser doesn’t really show us much more than the promo photo does … but it does feature Jamie Dornan so … I guess it’s worth a look? Enjoy.
