"T-Rex doesn't want to be fed. He wants to hunt. Can't just suppress 65 million years of gut instinct." At the D23 Expo, Pixar unveiled a closer look at the three T-Rex from Pixar's upcoming The Good Dinosaur movie, due in theaters this November. According to Pixar, in the film an Apatosaurus named Arlo must face his fears and these three T-Rexes. The three of them are named: Butch - a tough T-Rex voiced by Sam Elliott, who has "the perfect voice for a T-Rex"; Ramsey - Butch's daughter, voiced by Anna Paquin, described as a firecracker; Nash - Butch's son, voiced by AJ Buckley with a "charming drawl." See below. ›››

"You, sir, truly are Mr. Incredible. You know, I was right to idolize you?" With the D23 Expo underway out in Anaheim, California, Disney is making some big reveals. Found on the showfloor are a set of posters for Pixar's set of movies "Coming Soon". The poster set begins with The Good Dinosaur, which is out this Thanksgiving, and continues all the way up to Brad Bird's The Incredibles 2, which was announced last year. More sequels, yes, but at least The Incredibles 2 is being written and directed and cared for by Brad Bird and at least it's in the works. Toy Story 4 also gets a familiar poster. Check out all the photos below. ›››
Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Saving the world never goes out of style. Now playing in theaters is Guy Ritchie's latest action extravaganza, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., based on the classic 60's TV show. This time we're introduce to two spies on opposite sides - CIA agent Napoleon Solo, played by Henry Cavill, and Russian KGB agent Illya Kuryakin, played by Armie Hammer, who must team up to stop a nuclear weapon from falling into the wrong hands. They join with Alicia Vikander, battle against Elizabeth Debicki, along with Luca Calvani, Jared Harris and Hugh Grant. So how is it? Guy Ritchie back at it? Enjoyable? Once you've seen it, leave a comment with your thoughts on Man from U.N.C.L.E. ›››

It's time for a little tiny tease of the madness. With D23 underway, Disney has unveiled a first look at two teaser posters for Alice Through the Looking Glass, the sequel to Disney's re-imagining of Alice in Wonderland starring Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska from 2010. Those two are both returning and each one gets their own teaser poster - one for Alice, one for the Mad Hatter, played by Depp. Hopefully they're not all obsessed with pushing the 3D version of this sequel, and considering 3D is not seen anywhere on these posters, that may be a good sign. It's likely we'll see a teaser trailer by the end of the year, but in the meantime start with these posters and rewatch the old animated original. Is anyone excited for this sequel? ›››
Who pulls the trigger? Lionsgate has debuted one more kick ass trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, this one an international trailer that moves at a fast-pace but still maintains the intensity. Emily Blunt stars as a young FBI agent down in Mexico trying to take down a Mexican cartel, but finds out it's much more complicated than it seems. The cast includes Benicio Del Toro, Jon Bernthal, Josh Brolin, Jeffrey Donovan and Victor Garber. We've seen a couple of excellent trailers, so no more are needed, but why not toss another one into the mix. I'm just ready to see this damn film already, it looks outstanding. Enjoy! ›››
These are stunning! Of course they're already sold out, but that doesn't mean we can't admire the artwork anyway. Bottleneck Gallery out of NYC and ACME Archives from California have partnered to launch this Lucasfilm-licenesed set of Star Wars Noir art prints by Macedonian designer Marko Manev. Manev is a well-recognized artist that has done impressive work for many pop art galleries in the past, but this set is exceptional. My favorites in this are the "Droids" and "Smugglers" prints, the other two (the Dark Side!!) are also gorgeous but I'm not sure I need to have them up on my wall to stare at every day. View in full below. ›››

"What exactly are you a professor *of*, 'Professor Logan?'" Well, this is exciting. There are many different superhero projects in the works right now, one of them being Hugh Jackman's final performance as The Wolverine in another solo movie. The movie was revealed at Comic-Con this year, with Jackman giving a tearful farewell to the character in Hall H. He even hinted at Comic-Con that they may be doing Old Man Logan, but other details have yet to be confirmed. During a recent interview with actor Patrick Stewart, Collider (via SlashFilm) discovered that the X-Men's Professor X may indeed have a big role in the movie, and Stewart is likely going to be returning for that role. Or, at least he's "intrigued" about the idea. Read on. ›››

There's a whole, separate article to be written about the dissection of the classic, spy film we're seeing in 2015. Never mind the fact that, come November, we'll take our 24th trip to the land of James Bond. With movies like Kingsman and Spy already killing it this year, there seems to be plenty of room in the dangerous world of espionage to jab at its side a bit. Then in comes The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Guy Ritchie's take on the TV series from the '60s and a film that, despite all working against it, ends up a pretty entertaining bit of light-hearted action/adventure, a breezy way to send off a rather bleak Summer of dark offerings. ›››

"You bar this door behind me! If a man comes throughn, no matter what - you shoot!" Drafthouse Films has debuted the first trailer for The Keeping Room, a thriller set during the dying days of the American Civil War. The film stars Brit Marling and Hailee Steinfeld as sisters, who must fight to defend their home when two rogue soldiers from the Union Army come after them. They're joined by Muna Otaru, who plays a slave with them at their farmhouse fighting back. This looks solid. A bit dark at times, but otherwise not so bad for an indie revisionist western told from the woman's perspective. Opens in theaters September. ›››
"I'm not shaking your hand after that!" Universal has debuted the first official trailer and poster for Ride Along 2, Tim Story's sequel to the comedy hit from 2014 starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube. The two actors/comedians reunite this time for an explosive showdown in Miami. Continuing the first film, the two partner cops from Atlanta head to Miami where they find themselves in even more trouble. Cue the action, cue the Kevin Hart comedy, etc. The cast includes Olivia Munn, Ken Jeong, Nadine Velazquez, Tika Sumpter, Glen Powell and Benjamin Bratt. If this is the sequel you've been waiting for, well - have fun. ›››
"It's time for revenge." If you're still not convinced this is going to be action spectacle of the summer, here's one more trailer to get you in the mood for mayhem. EuropaCorp has debuted another official trailer for The Transporter Refueled, the return of the Transporter franchise. Technically this is the 4th film in the series, following Jason Statham's trilogy. And technically this is the third trailer, even though they're calling it "trailer #2". Ed Skrein takes over and becomes the "Transporter" this time, driving a few special packages in nice cars all over Europe. I'm honestly not sure if this is going to be any good. We'll know soon. ›››

In a world filled with secrets, solving a mystery can be murder. The Weinstein Co has debuted the official US trailer for a film called Shanghai, which you may remember hearing about because we ran the first trailer for this in 2010. The film has been delayed for release here in the US for 5 years, and TWC is just now putting it out quietly this month. John Cusack stars in Mikael Håfström's Shanghai (the film Håfström made before going on to do The Rite and Escape Plan) as an expat who goes to Shanghai when it's occupied during WWII and falls for a woman and uncovers gangland secrets. Also starring Chow Yun-Fat, David Morse, Ken Watanabe, Franka Potente & Jeffrey Dean Morgan. It doesn't look so good. Have fun. ›››

"She needed to be soulful, feisty and complicated." Eon Productions has released a new featurette for Sam Mendes' Spectre, due out in theaters in just a few more months. This one profiles the Bond Women of Spectre, specifically two of the women from this Bond movie - Léa Seydoux as Madeleine Swann, and Monica Bellucci as Lucia Sciarra. They left out Moneypenny! But that's okay, she's still awesome. In this featurette, Sam Mendes profiles both characters and discusses their casting. Monica Bellucci looks very mysterious, but Léa Seydoux looks badass as she's apparently always on the run. Can't wait. In theaters fall. ›››
"The kitchen is the only place I ever felt like I really belonged." The Weinstein Company has debuted the first official trailer for Burnt, formerly known as Adam Jones, the "other" chef movie. Bradley Cooper stars as Chef Adam Jones, a once-famous chef who loses it all and must start from the bottom again. This trailer makes it seem like a very intense, very focused look at the ups and downs of the life of a famous chef. The impressive ensemble cast includes Alicia Vikander, Jamie Dornan, Lily James, Sienna Miller, Uma Thurman, Emma Thompson, Daniel Brühl and Omar Sy. I'm not sure if this is just a really good trailer mixing up lots of the footage or what, but I really want to see this. They got my attention. Enjoy! ›››
It may not be in English, but it still does look like a very compelling film. The first international trailer has debuted for Natalie Portman's directorial debut A Tale of Love and Darkness, also starring Portman, written by Portman, and produced by Portman. The cast also features Makram Khoury as Halawani and Shira Haas. The film follows Natalie Portman as Fania Oz, a writer, journalist, and advocate of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This certainly looks like it's full of beautiful imagery, telling a very emotional, powerful story. We'll update when a version with English subtitles is available. Take a look. ›››
"We do what everyone says we can't - we write!" Bleecker Street Films has debuted the first official trailer for Trumbo, directed by Jay Roach, starring Bryan Cranston as screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. We just teased the new poster for this film, which is about Trumbo who was blacklisted and sent to prison during the Red Scare when the House UnAmerican Activities Committee was questioning Hollywood talent about Communist ties. The big cast includes Elle Fanning, Diane Lane, Helen Mirren, Alan Tudyk, John Goodman, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Louis C.K., Stephen Root and Michael Stuhlbarg. This looks damn good, it's going to be so much fun to watch I think that's why I'm intrigued. Cranston looks aces. ›››

Gather round for your first look at Tom Hiddleston as a classic country western singer. In the upcoming film I Saw the Light, Hiddleston plays Hank Williams, who only lived to the age of 29 but "in his brief life created one of the greatest bodies of work in American music." Sony Pictures Classics has just debuted the first official photo from the film, which is opening in theaters this November. I Saw the Light is written and directed by Marc Abraham, and in addition to Hiddleston stars Elizabeth Olsen, Cherry Jones, Bradley Whitford, Maddie Hasson, Wren Schmidt. We hope to see more from this soon, as it could be one to watch. ›››
"One of them fellas is not what he says he is." The Weinstein Company has debuted the first full-length teaser trailer for Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, his latest western following Django Unchained. This time, Tarantino wrangles up eight different bounty-hunter badasses under one roof in the middle of a blizzard. The film features quite an impressive cast: Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michael Madsen, Zoe Bell, Tim Roth, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir, Walton Goggins and Channing Tatum, in some kind of role. This looks even better than I was hoping, with a chill in the air, Tarantino's patented dialogue, and a cast that's going to blow us all out of the water. Fire this up and enjoy! ›››
