LoganHugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine looks as action packed as you'd expect, but I certainly didn't expect it to look quite as personal and emotional as it seems to be hinting at in this trailer. It looks like the film is both a send-off to one generation and an introduction to the next. It's coming out March 3rd.
Here's the first full-length trailer for the Power Rangers movie. It's clear this is going to be a pretty campy movie, the question now is whether the actors will have fun with that campiness or just come off looking silly. This trailer doesn't exactly leave me feeling encouraged. It comes out March 24th.
Santa Clarita Diet
Santa Clarita Diet is an upcoming Netflix original comedy-horror series created by Victor Fresco, starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. Fresco will serve as showrunner, and will be an executive producer alongside Barrymore, Olyphant, Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell. The single camera series will consist of 13 episodes that will premiere on February 3, 2017.
Deidra & Laney Rob a Train
Deidra & Laney Rob a Train is headed to Sundance next week, but it's already been picked up by Netflix for a March 17th release. It's a comedy about a couple of teenagers who decide to start robbing trains, which is an excellent conceit as far as I'm concerned.
The cast of Powerless is like a niche, nerdy dream team, but the material they have to work with is... fun and modern but maybe kind of already played out? Anyway, NBC's new sitcom is just one giant opportunity to make superhero jokes, and there really ought to be a lot of great material nowadays. Maybe once we're seeing more than what's in the pilot, things'll get a little more interesting. The show starts February 2nd.
Journey To The West 2: Demon Chapter
Kung Fu Hustle director Stephen Chow wrote this absolutely ludicrous looking action-comedy about... I don't really even know, but visually, it looks pretty incredible. I wish more action movies got this ridiculous.
This is a very unconventional monster movie, and I kind of love it. Anne Hathaway stars. There's a giant freaky Godzilla / alien thing terrorizing Seoul. They're connected in unexpected ways. Just watch like 30 seconds of this trailer to see what it's all about. The movie comes out April 7th.
Abstract: The Art of Design
This trailer might be a bit much, but the series seems like it could be neat. Abstract is an eight-episode series that profiles designers and their work, looking at everything from furniture and shoes to cars and buildings. All episodes premiere February 10th.
City of Tiny Lights
One of the few good things to come out of 2016 was a widespread desire to see Riz Ahmed everywhere. So here's his latest: a noirish crime film set in London that has Ahmed playing a detective searching for a missing woman. It comes out April 7th in the UK but doesn't appear to have a US release date yet.
A Dark Song
The Witch was one of last year's best horror movies, and this first trailer for A Dark Song reminds me of it quite a bit — it seems to be a horror film based around seriously creepy occult stories rather than sudden scares. The film is going to be distributed by IFC, but it doesn't appear to have a release date just yet.
