First ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Officially Titled ‘Rogue One’

Star Wars details have always been difficult to come by, but they've proven even more difficult with the upcoming spinoff. Other than confirmation that Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) will direct, we know very little about the film. Well, now we at least know what it will be called. Disney and Lucasfilm today confirmed that the first ever Star Wars spinoff will be officially called Rogue One.

‘Hotel Transylvania 2’ Trailer: Things Get Batty in This Adam Sandler Sequel

Adam Sandler’s live-action comedies have been underperforming lately (so much so that he recently signed a deal to make his next movies for Netflix), but 2012’s Hotel Transylvania was one of Sandler's best performing films in years. Because of that success, a new sequel is on the way with the whole “Drac Pack” returning for a spooky adventure.

Some Genius Mashed Up Earl Sinclair From ‘Dinosaurs’ Rapping Notorious B.I.G.

We don't even know how to convince you to watch this video, other than to tell you that sometimes you just need to trust us. Someone created a video mashup of Earl Sinclair from Dinosaurs — the 90s ABC family sitcom starring dinosaur puppets — rapping the entirety of Notorious B.I.G.'s ‘Hypnotize’. Yes, we realize this makes no sense, but it's perfect.

‘Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials’ First Look: So, What’s Outside of the Maze?

The Maze Runner was a surprisingly entertaining movie, even at a time when dystopian young adult adaptations are already feeling stale. There was a lot of inherent mystery built up around the film's central conceit — what the heck is this maze, who built it and can our heroes solve it? — and that was great. But, how will a Maze Runner film work when (spoiler alert) there's no maze? Enter: The Scorch Trials.

‘Inside Out’ Trailer: Listen to the Voices in Your Head

It's been almost two years since our last Pixar movie (Monsters University in 2013), but that's thankfully about to change this summer with the release of Inside Out. From Up director Pete Docter, Inside Out is also only the second original Pixar film since 2009, which makes its arrival extra exciting. Today, we have the final Inside Out trailer, which gives us a much better look at the film's plot and the insides of the human mind.

‘Tomorrowland’ Trailer: We’ve Been Looking For Someone Like You…

One of the few remaining mysteries of this upcoming summer movie season is Brad Bird's Tomorrowland. It's mysterious because it's not a sequel, or based on a comic book or a reboot or remake. It's just a big movie that we know very little about, and that's just the way they want it. But, what exactly is Tomorrowland. This new trailer gives us our best look yet.

Marvel Studios Skipping Comic-Con 2015 Says ‘Guardians’ Director James Gunn

Nobody — and we mean nobody — does Comic-Con quite like Marvel. In 2006 Marvel Studios held their first ever Comic-Con panel (announcing the Captain America and Thor movies) and has returned every year since. They've ruled the roost with dynamic, exciting presentations that mix showmanship with big announcements. But, that's all about to change. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn confirmed last night that, for the first time in nine years, Marvel Studios is skipping Comic-Con.

Now comes word that the new trailer is ready and a lucky few have reportedly already seen it. The good news is they were kind enough to pass along a brief description.
