The look of the new poster and trailer are a throwback to the classic adventure movies with some modern twists like Johnson not being quite the hero. There are some PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN vibes as well.

Tom Hanks has a penchant for World War II movies. His latest GREYHOUND not only stars Hanks himself but he wrote the script. This fight is on the high seas in GREYHOUND based on the fictional “The Good Shepherd” by C. S. Forester, and this dog fight on the sea looks like a nail-biter.
Scooby-Doo, one of my favorite cartoons as a child, is getting an animated reboot in SCOOB! Warner Bros. has released a new trailer, and some of the lead characters don't look quite like themselves, and a bigger surprise is other Hanna-Barbera characters are in the movie.
Eoin Colfer's beloved book gets a big screen adaptation but fans on social media are clamoring ARTEMIS FOWL doesn't reflect the book's plot. Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the 12-year-old criminal mastermind (Ferdia Shaw) searches for his missing father (Colin Farrell). However, the book's character is an anti-hero rather than a hero as portrayed in the new trailer. However the author has endorsed Disney's vision of the book.

While I love binging shows and movies on Netflix, there is a lack of representation of bicultural LatinXers on the streaming service until now. America Ferrera executive produces and cameos in "Gentefied," a half-hour bilingual comedy about a family taco business in Boyle Heights struggling to survive as the area is gentrified. Watch the hilarious new trailer which captures the spirit of the multi-generational culture in the language and humor.
In the new trailer for BIRDS OF PREY: THE EMANCIPATION OF ONE HARLEY QUINN, meet Harley Quinn's (Margot Robbie) crime fighting sisters, Black Canary, Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), Renee Montoya (Rosie Perez), and Cassandra Cain. They're all up against Ewan McGregor's Black Mask, and it's about time someone put his sinister smile to good use.

Originally slated for a 2019 release, Disney and FOX have finally released a new trailer for the next installment in the X-MEN series with THE NEW MUTANTS.

It's going to be a most excellent 2020 when Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reprise their roles as Bill and Ted in the third movie in the franchise. It'll be interesting to see how the characters have grown up or are they stuck in their old ways. Perhaps the title, BILL AND TED FACE THE MUSIC, is a clue. Check out the three new images from the movie and the official synopsis.
Tom Cruise reprises his role as Maverick in TOP GUN: MAVERICK, and judging by the new trailer, he’s still reckless. The flying is insane and Maverick’s risky maneuvers don’t fly with Goose’s son played by Miles Teller.

Lights up on Washington Heights...The scent of a cafecito caliente hangs in the air just outside of the 181st Street subway stop, where a kaleidoscope of dreams rallies this vibrant and tight-knit community. At the intersection of it all is the likeable, magnetic bodega owner Usnavi (Anthony Ramos), who saves every penny from his daily grind as he hopes, imagines and sings about a better life.
“In the Heights” fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling to capture a world very much of its place, but universal in its experience.

David Nicksay and Kevin McCormick served as executive producers.
Behind the camera, Chu is reuniting with his “Crazy Rich Asians” production designer, Nelson Coates, and editor, Myron Kerstein.
