“I need to know what’s inside…” Yes! Finally! Paramount has unveiled the first teaser trailer for the latest sci-fi film from Alex Garland (of Ex Machina), who is adapting from Jeff VanderMeer’s series of novels. Annihilation stars Natalie Portman as a biologist who travels with a group into a special place known as “Area X” where the laws of nature don’t apply. As you’ll see in this teaser, there are some very weird, wacky, WTF things in this mysterious place. And I can’t wait to find out what it all means. Also starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Isaac. This looks totally awesome, twisted, weird, and potentially mind-blowing (like Arrival). It’s even more exciting coming from Alex Garland, because he’s going to push these sci-fi concepts are far as they can go. I’m so in for this movie. ›››

The doc exploring the fatal World Cup viewing at a Irish pub in 1994 has been pulled due to outstanding legal issues.
“This isn’t a tomb. It’s a prison.” Universal has unwrapped the second official trailer for the new take on the Universal monster known as The Mummy. This action-packed new version of The Mummy stars Tom Cruise, with Sofia Boutella playing the new “bad guy”. Cruise plays Nick Morton, one of the characters who decides to dig up the new “mummy”, a priestess named Ahmanet who ushers in “a new world of gods and monsters”. The full cast includes Russell Crowe, Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Javier Botet. This trailer has some very cool action sequences, and I’m curious more than I expected to be. But I’m still not sure how good this is going to turn out, even with Cruise. Take a look below. ›››

“She gets it. I told her this about getting your mojo back.” Gravitas Ventures has debuted the trailer for the indie comedy titled Folk Hero & Funny Guy, about “a folk hero and a funny guy”, as played by Wyatt Russell and Alex Karpovsky (respectively). The story is about a struggling comedian named Paul, played by Karpovsky, who is talked into being the opening act of his folk-music friend Jason’s solo acoustic tour of the east coast. Everything seems to be going well, until Jason reveals an ulterior motive behind the tour. The cast includes Meredith Hagner, Melanie Lynskey, Hannah Simone, Michael Ian Black, Heather Morris and David Cross. This looks funny and heartfelt, and it’s always good to see Alex Karpovsky with a key role in a film. Though, as one of the quotes points out, this seems to be about the entire ensemble cast. ›››
Alex Meraz joins Scalped TV Series as lead character
Deadline reports that the upcoming Scalped TV series has found their leading man in actor Alex Meraz, who will play the role of Dashiell Bad Horse in the upcoming comic book adaptation for WGN America. Based on the comics by Jason Aaron and R.M. Guéra, the series is an intense crime drama that mixes organized crime with current Native American culture.
Fifteen years ago, Dashiell “Dash” Bad Horse ran away from a life of abject poverty and utter hopelessness on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation searching for something better. Now he’s come back home armed with nothing but a set of nunchucks, a hell-bent-for-leather attitude and one dark secret, to find nothing much has changed on “The Rez” — short of a glimmering new casino, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime. Is he here to set things right or just get a piece of the action?
Meraz previously appeared in another comic book adaptation, last year’s Suicide Squad, with additional appearances in Bone Tomahawk and The Twilight Saga. He joins Lily Gladstone in the cast, who is set to play Carol Red Crow, the estranged daughter of Chief Lincoln Red Crow and an old friend of Dash’s, who reunites with him after he returns to the reservation.
Doug Jung (Big Love, Star Trek Beyond) has penned the script for the pilot episode, which has directing team Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi (Black) set to helm.

“I’m back, back in the New York groove…” A brief teaser trailer has debuted a few days ahead of the world premiere of Alex Ross Perry’s new film Golden Exits, playing at the Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals. Golden Exits is an ensemble drama about two families and a few people intertwined between them. Emily Browning stars, along with Adam Horovitz, Mary-Louise Parker, Lily Rabe, Jason Schwartzman, and Chloë Sevigny. This teaser only shows Browning singing a song sitting on a stoop, and nothing else. She plays a youngster from Australia who comes to New York, upsetting the balance between the families. ›››
