Tenet Trailer #2


After premiering in Fortnite last night, the new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet arrived online shortly afterward. It still feels like there is a lot being kept under wraps here, but there are some new plot details being revealed including the fact that John David Washington’s character has been recruited due to his unique ability to manipulate time and communicate with the future. It does not appear to be time travel as we know it… instead it is referred to as “inversion.” The whole thing still feels a lot like Inception and combines a mind-bending concept with big action sequences. Unfortunately, if you were hoping for confirmation of a release date, the trailer does not commit to a date at this point. For now, Warner Brothers is still saying that Tenet will arrive on July 17th; check out the new trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

The Old Guard Trailer Starring Charlize Theron


Following up on the recent trailer for The Last Days of American Crime, here is the official trailer for another upcoming graphic novel adaptation coming to Netflix. This one is a co-production with Skydance (who also did 6 Underground) and it looks like a straightforward action-thriller with the exception of one small twist. Charlize Theron leads a team of mercenaries who also happen to be centuries-old immortals with advanced healing capabilities. When someone hatches a plan to capture them and replicate their powers, they are forced to fight to protect themselves and their secret at all costs. The Old Guard is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (Love & Basketball, The Secret Life of Bees) and co-stars KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts and Chiwetel Ejiofor. The movie hits Netflix on July 10th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

Force of Nature Trailer Starring Mel Gibson


Although Rob Cohen’s The Hurricane Heist didn’t really seem to attract much of an audience back in 2018, fans of this very specific “extreme weather crime thriller” sub-genre might want to keep an eye on the upcoming VOD release Force of Nature. Directed by Michael Polish (The Astronaut Farmer), the movie stars Emile Hirsch as a disgraced cop attempting to evacuate an apartment building during a Category 5 hurricane. When he discovers that a gang of thieves are attempting to rob a wealthy tenant, he must team up with Dr. Troy (Kate Bosworth) and her retired detective father (Mel Gibson) to stop them. Make no mistake, this movie would almost certainly have been a VOD release even prior to COVID-19, so make of that what you will. Force of Nature arrives on VOD on June 30th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

The Last Days of American Crime Trailer


Here’s the official trailer for the upcoming Netflix movie The Last Days of American Crime, which looks kind of like a direct-to-VOD mash-up of Heat, Minority Report and The Purge.

Directed by Olivier Megaton (Colombiana, Taken 2 and 3), the movie also co-stars Anna Brewster, Michael Pitt and Sharlto Copley.

Charlize Theron Not Returning for Mad Max Furiosa Prequel


Nearly five years after the release of Mad Max: Fury Road, we are finally starting to see signs of life on the next Mad Max installment. We’ve been hearing for a while now that George Miller has plans for at least two more movies, one called Mad Max: The Wasteland and another untitled spin-off focusing on Imperator Furiosa. Unfortunately, a legal battle between George Miller and Warner Brothers sidetracked both projects for a couple of years. Now that the dust has apparently settled, it sounds like the Furiosa project will be moving forward, but we are hearing it is a prequel and Charlize Theron won’t be returning to reprise her role. Here’s what Miller recently had to say about the choice to cast a younger actor instead:
