SPECTRE (Teaser)

SPECTRE (Teaser)

A mysterious look at the 24th film in the James Bond series, in which 007 must face off against a dastardly organization as he deals with the aftermath of Skyfall. It’s worth watching if only for the glimpse of Bond’s Aston Martin DB10.

Hot on the heels of the teaser, we’ve got the first full-length trailer, which gives more insight into the story – in which Ethan and his squad must take down an evil organization called The Syndicate. That alley chase scene just looks sick.

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (Teaser)

Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation (Teaser)

We like Tom Cruise best in action and sci-fi flicks. The latest in his Mission Impossible series looks as thrilling as ever, despite the guy being 19 years older than in his first MI movie. Plus, Simon Pegg is back. Yay! Hits theaters 7/31/15.

Avengers: Age of Ultron (TV Spot)

Avengers: Age of Ultron (TV Spot)

Our first glimpse at Avengers: Age of Ultron was heavy on the drama. Then we saw a smattering of humor. And now we have this reassurance that yes, the movie will meet its quota of lighthearted quips and nonchalant badassery.

London Brawling

RocketJump’s Freddie Wong returns to his action and weapon- umbrella-filled roots with this short action romp, inspired by the Matthew Vaughn’s new spy flick Kingsman. Sure, it’s a shameless plug for the film, but it’s still a blast.

Kingsman: The Secret Service (Trailer 2)

Kingsman: The Secret Service (Trailer 2)

Kingsman: The Secret Service shows off some of its action, humor and gadgets, as well as the villain played by Samuel L. Jackson. We’re giving this the benefit of the doubt because Matthew Vaughn is at the helm.
