(PG-13: Language) Robot Chicken showed up at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con packing a trailer for their upcoming special episode, which roasts The Walking Dead, complete with a horny unicorn, a Terminus dance number, and of course, Chris Hardwick talking about it all.
Check Out Awesome Trailers On The Awesomer
The Duffer Brothers’ awesome sci-fi adventure series is back for another season, and it’s clear that Will Byers and his pals aren’t done with the Upside-down quite yet. We can’t decide whether this or Ready Player One’s teaser has more ’80s pop culture references.
Our second look at the new Star Trek series is still pretty light on plot, but it does a good job showing off more of the cast of characters, enemies, ships, props, and costumes, all of which have a look that’s pretty different than any other Trek to date. (Thanks Jack!)
Steven Spielberg’s take on Ernest Cline’s hit novel, about a young man who grows up in the year 2044 where the only opportunity to escape the overpopulated real world is to enter The OASIS, a virtual reality, which happens to be loaded pop culture references of the past.
(PG-13: Language/Gore) AMC dropped this extended trailer during SDCC, giving us a glimpse at the impending war against the Sanctuary, which will unite many and tear some apart (literally). The tease at the end could only mean one thing as far as we’re concerned.
One of our favorite Nickelodeon cartoons of all time is coming back – in movie form. Rocko, Heffer, the Bigheads, and Filburt are all back – voiced by their original actors – for some ’90s style fun in the 21st century. We can’t wait to see this when it comes out in 2018.
It’s not the live-action sequel we’ve been hoping for, but this CGI animated feature has plenty of cheesy dialogue, Casper Van Diem, and way more bugs than Paul Verhoeven’s 1997 original. It’s in theaters for a one-night-only showing on 8/21, then hits digital and Blu-ray.
(PG-13: Language) James Franco stars and directs in this well–received comedy. It’s about Tommy Wiseau and his film The Room, a movie so bad that it broke the scale and has become a cult classic. Based on the eponymous memoir co-authored by The Room actor Greg Sestero.
It’s rare that we’re this excited for a sequel, but with Denis Villeneuve directing, Roger Deakins behind the lens, and original screenwriter Hampton Fancher, all under the watchful eye of Ridley Scott, it’s got every chance of being great. Please let it be as good as it looks.
“There is such a thing as a tesseract.” A girl and her new friends must confront evil itself to save her father in this adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic fantasy novel. Starring Oprah Winfrey, Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling. Premieres 3/9/18.
During this year’s D23 Expo, one of the many things Disney dropped was this cool 3-minute reel that teases us with on-set footage from Star Wars Episode VIII, including glimpses at the sets, costumes, creatures, and cast. Damn, we’re gonna miss Carrie Fisher.
SPOON! The second live-action reboot of Ben Edlund’s hilarious 1990s animated superhero show is coming to Amazon, and we’re pretty excited based on the pilot. Tune in on 8/25/17 for the first six episodes in the misadventures of our blue hero and his trusty sidekick Arthur.
A frustrated artist builds himself a maze out of cardboard boxes, and ends up with something that works much like a TARDIS – it’s much bigger on the inside. We’re getting a Being John Malkovich kind of vibe off of Bill Watterson’s offbeat comedy. Screening dates here.
Filmmaker Bryan Fogel initially wanted to learn more about performance-enhancing drugs. His research unwittingly got him caught in Russia’s doping scandal. Critics say Icarus has a poorly-edited first half, but its twists and bombs make it worth watching. Premieres 8/4/17 on Netflix.
Geek kings Penny-Arcade adapted their side webcomic Automata into a episodic series. It’s a sci-fi noir set in an alternate reality 1930’s United States, where advanced robots used to be made. The series is about one such being, a detective, and his partner.
