Official Trailer for Cliché Action Movie ‘Cartels’ Starring Steven Seagal

Cartels Trailer

«Who the hell are you?» «I’m the guy you shoulda called when you went sideways.» Lionsgate has dropped a trailer for yet another new Steven Seagal action movie, and it looks as terrible as his last one. The trailer is for a film called Cartels, formerly known as Killing Salazar. It’s made by the same director who has made all of Seagal’s recent movies, including Contract to Kill, which we featured a trailer for last year (did anyone actually watch it?). Cartels has some super cheesy, twisty plot involving a drug lord being captured, the DEA, and Seagal being Seagal. Also starring Georges St. Pierre, Martine Argent, Darren E. Scott, Massimo Dobrovic, and Luke Goss. I honestly don’t even know why I bother with trailers for films like this, I’m never going to watch it, and I hope no one else will want to either. Move along, nothing to see here. ›››

‘Blade Runner 2049’ Featurette Reveals Stunning New Footage, Making Of the Movie

Blade Runner 2049 featurette

“We want people to look at it and say, ‘Wow that’s a beautiful shot. How did they get it?’” visual effects supervisor John Nelson says in the new featurette for Denis Villeneuve‘s Blade Runner 2049, the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic, Blade Runner.

That’s how I spent much of the time watching the featurette, which showcases more of the film’s stunning cinematography, courtesy of Roger Deakins, and establishes Blade Runner 2049 as the most visually breathtaking movie of the year. New footage delves into the story of Officer K (Ryan Gosling) and Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford, returning to his famous role), as well as gives us a hint at characters that we hadn’t yet seen.

Watch the Blade Runner 2049 featurette below.

The exclusive featurette from People opens on Officer K playing a futuristic juke box from which pops up a hologram of Frank Sinatra, moodily singing as Officer K wanders through an abandoned lounge. Deckard shows up, gun raised, and they warily greet each other. Watch it here:

The story of Blade Runner 2049 follows Officer K, Los Angeles Police Department officer who discovers a grand conspiracy to destroy all of civilization. This sets him off on a mission to find Deckard, who has been missing for three decades — roughly the time that took place between the first Blade Runner and its 2017 sequel.

“When I dreamt the original Blade Runner over 35 years ago, I could never imagine how iconic it would still be,” Ridley Scott, who directed the original film and executive produces the sequel, says.

The featurette continues with interviews from cast members, including Ford, Gosling and Jared Leto, as well as the technical crew in charge of the visuals and art.

“I have massive respect for Ridley Scott’s world. Blade Runner revolutionized the way we view science fiction,” Villeneuve says. “I’ve never felt so much pressure on my shoulders, thinking Ridley Scott would see this movie.”

But art director Paul Inglis assures us that Blade Runner 2049 won’t be simply playing into nostalgia for the original Blade Runner. “It’s not just a replica of the first film,” Inglis said. “We’re marrying the familiar with the slightly divergent in order to give us an identity.”

Apart from the behind-the-scenes shots of the film, we see new footage of Officer K and Deckard’s meeting, new grimy and neon-soaked settings, and a brief glimpse at a replicant that looks oddly like Dave Bautista, possibly giving a hint of who he’ll be playing.

Blade Runner 2049

The footage also teases at a deeper mystery surrounding Officer K, with a character telling him “You’re special,” and the footage ominously ending with him staring at his hand, troubled. “This is impossible,” he says.

Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters October 6.

Lord & Miller Fired from the ‘Han Solo’ Movie in the Middle of Filming

Lord & Miller / Han Solo

Whoa! Major news to report. Directors Phil Lord & Christopher Miller will no longer be directing the Han Solo spin-off Star Wars movie, currently in the middle of filming. Lucasfilm and Lord/Miller have both released statements, via Hollywood Reporter, confirming the shocking news and admitting to «creative differences» as the reason. The project was already most of the way through filming, apparently with only a few weeks left, yet they’re not going to finish and will instead hand over the work to someone else (yet to be announced). This is a huge shake-up in Hollywood, and will be talked about for years. For now, the original May 25th, 2018 release date is still unchanged, with reshoots planned later this summer with a new director. ›››

‘Cars’ Honest Trailer: The Movie That Paid for ‘Ratatouille’, ‘WALL E’, and ‘Up’

Cars Honest Trailer

With the release of Cars 3 just a few days away, it should come as no surprise that Honest Trailers has decided to take a look back at the frequently panned film that started it all.

Cars is easily the movie that is given the most grief since it doesn’t quite measure up to the quality that Pixar Animation has delivered over the years. However, Cars 2 is even worse, and it’s the latter movie that takes the brunt of the insults thrown around, as well it should.

Watch the Cars Honest Trailer after the jump.

That’s right, what starts as an Honest Trailer for Cars quickly takes a turn to throw punches at Cars 2, easily the worst movie Pixar Animation has produced. The sequel is the definition of cash grab as Disney was undoubtedly hungry to double all the merchandising money they made on the first movie.

The biggest flaw that Cars 2 has is that it focuses on the most dispensable, stupid character: Mater. As Honest Trailers so astutely points out, the character of Mater is basically “a turducken of fake idiots pretending to be even bigger, faker idiots.” And no, we’re not being harsh on a kids movie, because kids movies don’t have to be this stupid to be entertaining, and the sooner everyone realizes that, the better off entertainment for young kids will be.

The good news is that if you’re forced to take your kids to Cars 3 this weekend, it sounds like it will be significantly better than both of the previous films in the franchise. We’ll find out when Cars 3 arrives on June 16.

‘The Emoji Movie’ Trailer: Yep, Here is a Movie That Exists

the emoji movie trailer

The Emoji Movie is a thing produced by human beings. Countless artists and animators toiled away to bring it into existence. It paid for medical bills and college tuitions. It kept a number of skilled people employed so they could pay their mortgages and put food on their table. Kids did not starve because The Emoji Movie exists. In that way, The Emoji Movie‘s mere existence cannot be written off entirely. Good job, The Emoji Movie.

But the new trailer for the actual movie? Yikes. This looks like exactly what we were dreading when the film was first announced.

To be perfectly fair, I’m surely not the audience for this one. This is a movie that feels specifically aimed at younger kids growing up in the age of the smartphone, people for whom emojis are part of an ingrained language and not just a weird thing you use to make sure your friends know a text was sarcastic. I’m sure children will love this. And that’s okay! I liked a lot of nonsense when I was younger, too.

And yet, The Emoji Movie feels very much like the latest chapter in “What hath The LEGO Movie wrought?” That film’s unexpected critical success (it is, against all odds, a legitimately terrific movie) opened the floodgates to movies like this, where “brands” take center stage and demand that we let them into our hearts. The whole thing makes me feel icky, if we’re going to be perfectly honest.

Otherwise, The Emoji Movie looks like it hits the usual beats. It’s loud and colorful and full of pop culture references and loud and full of recognizable celebrity voices and loud. It’s possible that the frantic mania of this trailer is not representative of the final film and it’s even possible that this pacing actually plays well in execution (see, once again, The LEGO Movie), but this whole endeavor looks like a headache and a half.

But could this movie surprise us? Speaking with Fandango, star T.J. Miller promised that this isn’t your average kids’ movie, saying:

In this movie, they talk about death. They talk about being deleted. One of the things I like about this movie – and I knew it would be this way from meeting them, but now having seen the movie I didn’t realize just how much it would be – it is a lot about expressing yourself and not hiding who you are, and talking to people instead of just texting them. That kind of stuff. But it’s also very much about – and I’m not going to ruin it for you – but it’s about women not needing to be just one thing, like a bride or a princess or a dancing flamenco girl. […] It’s about friendship, which I think is always important to teach kids about loyalty and friendship. And strangely it’s about family. It’s a good message for kids in general. All of these are helping develop a moral compass in children that we think is a progressive mindset, to be kind to everybody, to not hide yourself.

My eyebrow is raised suspiciously, but I’m willing to let myself be surprised by this one.

The Emoji Movie is directed by Tony Leondis and opens on July 28, 2017. It features the voices of T.J. Miller, Anna Faris, James Corden, Patrick Stewart, Maya Rudolph, Steven Wright, Rob Riggle, Jennifer Coolidge, and more. Here’s the synopsis:

Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer). Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.

A Marvel Movie & TV Crossover Will Happen ”At Some Point” According to Kevin Feige

Marvel movie and TV crossover - Kevin Feige

Most people working behind the scenes of Marvel Studios have been doubtful at best regarding the chances of a crossover happening between the films and TV shows of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kevin Feige didn’t rule it out but said “it all depends on timing” while Jeph Loeb said coordinating schedules to make it work can be difficult when you consider how fast-paced a television show’s schedule is compared to a movie.

On the other end of the spectrum, after making the jump from film to television, Clark Gregg lamented that “corporate stuff” was keeping a crossover from happening while his Agents of SHIELD co-star Chloe Bennett was a little more critical of Marvel Studios for essentially ignoring their ABC show.

Now Kevin Feige sounds somewhat more amiable about a Marvel movie and TV crossover happening, though he makes it sound like it won’t be happening anytime soon. Find out what the Marvel Studios boss had to say below.

io9 spoke to Kevin Feige recently, and they said that he sounded much more optimistic about the chances of a crossover. Specifically, they asked about whether seeing a character appear in a Marvel TV shows rules out the possibility of having that character appear in a Marvel movie. Here’s what Feige said on the matter:

“Not necessarily. The future’s a long time. So, the truth is, I don’t really know, but there are a lot of TV shows being made, and hopefully we’ll continue to make a lot of movies. At some point, there’s going to be a crossover. Crossover, repetition, or something.”

It sounds like Feige is indicating that sometime down the road a crossover between film and television is inevitable. However, that last part where Feige says “repetition” also hints at the possibility of characters from the TV side of things getting a big screen reboot in the future. There’s a lot that can still happen before Marvel starts rebooting their more prominent characters, but since there are various iterations of all superheroes in the comic books, we’ll undoubtedly see different version of those characters brought to the big or small screen.

If I were to predict what will happen as the Marvel Cinematic Universe goes on, I would guess that the cosmic side of the MCU will eventually lead to the revelation that there are parallel universes where alternate versions of superheroes like Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Spider-Man and more exist. That’s pure speculation on my part, but that feels like the easiest way to reboot franchises while still keeping the mythology of the original MCU intact and connected to the movies and TV shows that will happen in the distant future.

What do you think?
