Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins, and Ben Kingsley star in this action/romance about a man who gets involved with a group of drug dealers as their driver, and finds himself at odds with his new employers. Its director has little under his belt, but it’s got an A+ cast.
Fans of Studio Ghibli will want to add this one to their Amazon Prime watch list now. The 26-episode animated series about the adventures of a thief’s daughter premiered in Japan in 2014, but is getting its US translated debut on 1/27/17, narrated by Gillian Anderson.
“Sometimes we don’t want a British man yelling at us about how the world is ending for a whole hour…” Last Week Tonight is coming back to HBO on 2/12/17, but as John Oliver learned from this trailer, it’s definitely not HBO’s most eagerly-anticipated series.
(PG-13: Language) Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant star in this Netflix original series, a dark comedy about two ordinary real estate agents whose lives get turned upside down when one of them wakes up as a zombie – and is much happier that way. Drops 2/3/17.
Jason Momoa plays Declan Harp, a half-Irish, half-Native American, all-Badass hellbent on taking down the fur trade. We’re pretty sure Khal Drogo would have taken down the bear in The Revenant without flinching. Series premieres 1/20/17 on Netflix.
(PG-13: Gore, Language) We just opened our first Christmas present, and it’s got a xenomorph growing inside of it. Get ready for a return to the darkness, jump scares, and psychological tension galore as Ridley Scott returns once again to the Alien universe.
“I’m not that guy anymore.” “You’re always that guy.” First they killed his dog. Now they uh, just want to take over the world. John Wick comes out of retirement again because of a more stereotypical premise, but hopefully more smart action as well.
Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrival) takes over the directorial reins from Ridley Scott for the long-awaited sequel to one of the greatest science fiction movies of all time. We know little about the plot yet, but we can’t wait until October 2017 to see this one.
Grue causes a hit and run accident, the bad guy dresses like a 1980s fashion victim, Grucy go for a swim, and the Minions are so busy working on their own film franchise they almost forgot to show up for the trailer for the latest flick in the goofy but charming Despicable Me series.
Charlize Theron and Kurt Russell join the Fast and Furious and financially fantastic franchise for its latest installment. Gang leader Dom Toretto appears to turn his back on his team, probably because the Winter Soldier killed his mom Martha.
Caesar and his kin are drawn into a war against an army of humans, led by a Colonel (Woody Harrelson) hellbent on ending the apes, and forcing the audience to choose whether to root for the humans or the apes. Perhaps the next movie will be Rise of the Planet of the Fleas.
(PG-13) From Horrible Bosses, King of Kong and The Goldbergs director Seth Gordon comes a Seth Rogen-style comedy masquerading as a Baywatch reboot. Considering no one asked for it, this is probably the best outcome. Starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Alexandra Daddario.
It’s Marvel’s third attempt in not so many years to reboot the Spider-Man franchise, so we’ve got some concerns, but we did find Tom Holland to be awkwardly charming in Civil War, so we’ll give him a chance. Watch the trailer and decide for yourself.
