During their 3rd annual Valiant Summit, Valiant Entertainment once again gave us an amazing line up of books that will be released throughout this year, starting with last months launch of X-o Manowar and concluding with December's release of Quantum and Woody. It is important to note that Valiant Entertainment has only been around since their relaunch in 2012. They had such an impact that they won the award of Comic Publisher of the Year from Diamond Comic Distributors that same year. Now they are on the verge of bigger and better things including a YouTube series called Ninjak Vs. The Valiant Universe, a multi-movie deal with Sony which includes a Bloodshot movie and a Quantum and Woody television show that will be made by the Russo brothers, who are currently working on the next Avengers film.
They were very excited about their line up as their first title X-o Manowar #1 has already sold over 90,000 copies, »

This past week a mysterious A24 trailer was released for an untitled project. While many believed it to be a new sci-fi film, now, thanks to The Film Stage, we know what the project really is.
According to the site, the feature is actually a Sundance-bound short film called “Toru.” After a reader spotted a still on Sundance’s website that matched the trailer footage, they did some additional digging and found images and information that corresponded with the project.
“Toru” is a 14-minute Japanese short with English subtitles, directed by Jonathan Minard and Scott Rashap. The synopsis, courtesy of Wicked Local, is as follows: “With a science fiction undercurrent, ‘Toru’ centers on the story of a baby boy, named Toru, born with a fatal lung condition. As he only has a few days to live Toru’s parents sign him up for a trial experiment that would simulate a »

A24 has us putting on our detective hats with their mystery trailer.
Okay, gumshoes. Grab your notebooks because the game is afoot. Jinkies! We’ve got a movie mystery to solve. The suspect is A24 and the what is this very mysterious video that was uploaded this week:
Note how the video is simply called “Untitled.” It was also uploaded without any sort of announcement or fanfare. The caption reads, “In our near future.” In Whose future, A24?! In Whose?!
The trailer is striking, with visuals of a young boy, a couple, a baby, and what might be some sort of pod. Words move across the screen as well, in time to an ominous drum beat: Beyond Reality. Bear Witness. Question Life. Live Beyond. It’s hard to tell exactly what is happening (because that would be too easy), but the visuals and tone »

Never underestimate the gravity of a teaser trailer. In this current age of information overload, first impressions are everything – particularly online – which often leads to Hollywood studios competing for mindshare in a variety of different ways. But sometimes bigger isn’t always the answer. To pique curiosity – to truly spark conversation – that reel of footage simply needs to leave a lasting impression on its audience, as they pour over each and every frame hunting for clues.
One studio that has adopted the ol’ less-is-more approach is A24, who today rolled out an ambiguous teaser trailer for…well, we don’t quite know. Without a title or release date to call its own, A24’s mystery sci-fi project is currently shrouded in a thick veil of secrecy. Assuming it’s designed to advertise an upcoming feature film – and not an intriguing short or some form of thought experiment – the mesmerizing promo »

A24, the studio which brought us indie favorites like “The Lobster,” “Room” and “20th Century Women,” has released a teaser trailer for an upcoming mysterious “Untitled” sci-fi film. The movie’s title is unknown and the video’s description on YouTube only says “in our near future.”
Featuring unrecognizable actors, the one-minute clip begins with the words “Beyond Reality, Realize Feeling, Feel Bare,” and more. Each scene is different and features a teenager, a couple and futuristic technology, among other things.
Nothing is known about the project and it doesn’t appear on the studio’s website either. Though, The Playlist noted that when the trailer was first uploaded it had the title “Tor Tsr Witness.” We’re not sure if it’s a film, a short or even a television series, but check out the teaser for yourself below.

One of the few production companies in which their name alone can attract attention — even more impressive considering they are less than five years old — A24 had one of their best years yet. While 2016 brought The Witch, Krisha, Green Room, The Lobster, De Palma, Morris From America, American Honey, Moonlight, and 20th Century Women, 2017 will see the release of the highly-anticipated How to Talk to Girls at Parties, Lean on Pete, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, A Ghost Story, and It Comes at Night, among others.
We can now add another to the list, but only as Untitled. This morning, A24 uploaded a teaser for a secretive sci-fi film (in fact, we’re not even sure if it’s a film) with no recognizable actors. The preview includes text displaying Beyond Reality, Realize Feeling, Feel Bare, Bear Witness, Witness Change, Change Identity, Identity Questions, Question Life, and Live Beyond »

Last month, Netflix dropped the first trailer for “The Oa,” which hadn’t been on anybody’s radar, mere days ahead of its debut on the streaming service, and a sensation was born. And while I don’t think A24 (the studio behind “The Lobster,” “The Witch,” “Ex Machina” and more) will be dropping a movie by surprise this Friday in cinemas, it seems they’re also choosing to play the mystery game, as they’ve also just released a trailer for a movie (or TV show?) that, for now, they’re keeping completely under wraps, only offering the tagline: “In our future.”
For those of you who like a mystery, I can tell you that when the trailer was first uploaded to YouTube, it had the following title: “Tor Tsr Witness.” If that means anything to you, let us know.

For many of you, the last time you saw R. Kelly he was most likely trapped in a closet. Or perhaps convincing a ragtag group of cartoons led by Michael Jordan to believe they can fly, if not educating you in the finer arts of jubilantly celebrating the freakin’ weekend. But now the infamous musician has taken on a brand new role, giving all of these Instagram It-Girls a run for their money as the newest star of Alexander Wang‘s Spring/Summer 2017 digital campaign alongside model and brand-favorite Anna Ewers.
The campaign for the designer’s latest collection was »
