On BBC One in the UK, the special kicks off December 15, and on BBC America in the States, it will air on December 17.
When we last saw Luther it was on Southwark Bridge in the Season 3 finale back… Read
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Facebook Clip: Snoke Signals, Han Shoots First
A new Star Wars: The Force Awakens clip was posted to Facebook this morning, just in time to give fans an extra something to be thankful for on Turkey Day. The one-minute trailer (above) is titled “All The Way” and will also serve as an upcoming TV spot. In the clip, we hear Andy Serkis’ Supreme Leader Snoke tell Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren, “Even you have never faced such a test.” There’s more X-Wing Fighter and Millennium Falcon action here, too.
While the clip says the film… Read
‘Second Chance’ Trailer: Basically The Six Million Dollar Scrooge
A teaser trailer for Fox’s upcoming thriller series Second Chance dropped a couple of weeks back, and it utterly failed to give you the most important information about the basic premise. Fox has wisely given itself another opportunity, with a brand new trailer that makes it much more clear. In short, this thing is going to be The Six Million Dollar Man meets A Christmas Carol but with The Shield as its backstory. Sold, Fox. Sold.
Second Chance follows Jimmy Pritchard… Read

Jeff Lebowski notwithstanding, here’s the role that Jeff Bridges was born to voice. He’s the Aviator in The Little Prince, Paramount’s adaptation of the classic French story.

The First ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Trailer Hits Like A Punch To The Head
Disney is flexing every single one of its synergistic muscles in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday, using (Disney-owned) ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the mouse house’s biggest franchises. Last night’s Star Wars edition of the show kicked things off, and tonight a special all-Marvel show followed. Making the episode something of a must-watch was the appearance by Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans. Teased in advance as part of a “BIG” surprise related to Captain Amer… Read
‘Grease Live’ First-Look Promo: Hand Jives & Fast Times At Rydell High
Well-a, well-a, well-a, unngghh — here’s our first video peek at the stars of Fox musical special Grease Live. Julianne Hough, Aaron Tviet, Vanessa Hudgens, Keke Palmer, Carly Rae Jepsen and others show off their moves in a spotless Rydell High hallway (a far cry from any at L.A.’s Venice High, where some of the 1978 movie’s scenes were shot). There’s ’50s cool, ’50s kitsch and ’50s in-between as Zuko, Sandy, Rizzo, Kenickie and myriad T-Birds and Pink Ladies try to… Read
‘Knight Of Cups’ Trailer: Christian Bale’s Excellent Misadventure
Every acclaimed director eventually has to make a movie about making movies, and it’s Terrence Malick’s turn now. Named after the Tarot card, his latest Knight Of Cups sees Christian Bale and his American accent as a screenwriter in Los Angeles who, despite a successful career, lives an empty-feeling life. Coping with the death of one brother and the difficult circumstance of another, he distracts himself with a descent into Hollywood excess. The trailer that dropped… Read
‘JeruZalem’ Trailer: Israeli Endtimes Horror Pic Gets U.S. Release
Thanks to having grown up in the Bible belt, despite my personal beliefs and best instincts I still have an inborn fear of the End of Days. As a result, biblical horror films terrify the hell out of me, which means I’m probably going to love JeruZalem. The POV horror story follows two American girls on vacation in Jerusalem who join up with a mysterious anthropology student while partying in the Old City. Things go sideways when a biblical prophecy comes true during Yom… Read
‘Barbershop: The Next Cut’ Trailer: First Look At The Return To Calvin’s Shop
It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop and now the gang is back, but with some pretty major changes. First off, we have a new title. The third installment (fka Barbershop 3) is titled Barbershop: The Next Cut.
Calvin (Ice Cube) and his longtime crew, including Eddie (Cedric The Entertainer) are still there, but the once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. They also have a couple of new employees — Common (Selma) and Nicki Minaj … Read
‘Spanish Affairs 2’ Is Latest In Euro Culture-Clash Smashes, So Why No Hwd Remakes? – Intl B.O. Postmortem
When culture-clashing works, it’s “gold,” an executive tells me. And that’s no joke. But while Europe has seen a string of local-language successes in the genre, none has recently gotten a U.S. remake, despite Hollywood’s fondness for mining other countries’ hits. The Spanish Affairs movies, although wildly successful at home, are likely to be no different.
Following last year’s record-breaking comedy Ocho Apellidos Vascos (Spanish Affairs), the sequel this weekend set… Read
‘DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow’ Trailer Travels Through Time, Beats People Up
With Thanksgiving nigh, here’s something for nerds like me to be especially thankful for: the first full trailer the CW’s upcoming DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The series sees time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter journey to our era from a dystopian future in order to assemble a mismatched team of heroes and villains from the Arrow/Flash universe. The mission: to travel throughout time in order to prevent immortal supervillain Vandal Savage from taking over the world. Joining the… Read
‘The Big Short’ Trailer: “You Think This Is A Game?”
“Banks have conditioned us to trust them.” That key line opens the new trailer for The Big Short, the late addition to the awards-season fray from director Adam McKay. Seconds later, the voice-over tells us, “When the banks committed the greatest fraud in U.S. history, four outsiders risked it all to take them down.” The characters might be “outsiders,” but the lead actors certainly aren’t: Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt — all Oscar winners or… Read
