In the age of reboots, it's hard to tell the gems from the trash. The original trailer for Power Rangers introduced a new class of teenage fighters played by Naomi Scott (Pink), Becky G (Yellow), Ludi Lin (Black), Rj Cyler (Blue), and Dacre Montgomery (Red). The latest teaser not only provides a peek at Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa - who looked crazy-cool on the set - Bryan Cranston as Zordon, and Bill Hader as the voice of Alpha 5, but also includes a reference to Iron Man and Spider-Man! Why are our geek brains so happy right now? The movie will be out March 24.

The Hollywood community is in mourning once again, only this time, for a young man who passed far before his prime. Trevor Habberstad, a stuntman and stunt coordinator who most recently worked on X-Men: Apocalypse, Doctor Strange and Passengers, passed away on Sunday at the age of 27. The stuntman succumbed to a rare form of cancer. Trevor Habberstad was on a family vacation in Hawaii last year when he began to feel stomach pain that doctors initially thought was appendicitis, but after another evaluation, it was revealed that he actually had gastric cancer.
Jeff Habberstad, Trevor's father and a stuntman/stunt coordinator as well, told Khts News in their hometown of Santa Clarita, California that they just found out about a week and a half ago that the cancer had spread into the late stuntman's brain. Jeff Habberstad served as a stunt coordinator for director Bryan Singer on 2014's »
Back in April of last year it was announced that Zack Snyder’s frequent collaborator Larry Fong would not be behind the camera on Justice League due to a scheduling conflict with Kong: Skull Island, with Snyder then enlisting Game of Thrones cinematographer Fabian Wagner to shoot the DC team-up.
Posting on his Instagram page, Wagner has spoken briefly about the film, revealing that he took inspiration from Fong’s work on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and judging by his comments, it seems we’ll be seeing a somewhat consistent look between the two movies.
“Last year I was fortunate enough to work with Zack Snyder on his new movie Justice League,” said Wagner. “I had always been a fan of his work and of his long time cinematographer Larry Fong. I tried to put my own stamp onto it but Larry’s dark and beautiful lighting was a huge source of inspiration. »

When Tom Holland starred in Captain America: Civil War last summer, he became the third actor in 14 years to play Spider-Man, following in the footsteps of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. Shortly after Civil War hit theaters, Tobey Maguire revealed on social media that he was impressed, adding that Tom Holland is "great" as Spider-Man. Shortly after he was cast, Andrew Garfield had nothing but positive things to say about Tom Holland in an interview, but now both Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield have finally met in person, and we have some photos and videos to prove it.
During the BAFTA Awards, a number of fans posted videos and photos to Twitter, showcasing both Tom Holland and Andrew Garfield meeting in person, which, as it turns out, was the first time both of them had met. After the BAFTA Awards, where Tom Holland received the Rising Star Award this year, »

“I’ve never been more appreciative, humbled and just overall excited about the fact that I’ve been nominated,” says Hacksaw Ridge sound mixer Kevin O’Connell of his 21st Oscar nomination — which he shares with Peter Grace, Robert Mackenzie and Andy Wright — as we sit down at The Hollywood Reporter to record an episode of THR‘s ‘Awards Chatter’ podcast. “I don’t want to say I took it for granted in the past, but I certainly don’t take it for granted anymore.”
O’Connell, 59, has worked in Hollywood for nearly 40 years, and is one of the most respected practitioners of his craft. But he is best known for a dubious distinction: in Oscar history, no person has accumulated more nominations without ever winning. His noms span 33 years, from 1983’s Terms of Endearment through Mel Gibson‘s 2016 war film, »

For the record, Jk Simmons is one of my favorite actors out there right now. Also, the fact that he’s still doing Farmer’s Insurance commercials even after being an Oscar winner makes me like this guy even more. A Youtuber decided to do a very subtle but very awesome crossover today. If you’re familiar with the Spider-Man comics you might know who Jonah Jameson is. For a refresher: Jameson is usually the publisher or editor-in-chief of the Daily Bugle, a fictional New York newspaper and once served as the mayor of New York City.

While Justice League did have a presence at the San Diego Comic-Con last year in the form of a teaser/sizzle reel, we’re yet to get a full trailer for the DC blockbuster, which is set to open in November. However, director Zack Snyder has now revealed that the wait will not be much longer, with the information coming by way of Snyder’s Vero account (via Smtv’s Sean Murphy):

Warner Bros. has Wonder Woman set to arrive this summer, so presumably the focus for the studio’s marketing team will be on the Amazon Princess’ solo outing for the time being. That said, it would be a surprise if we still haven’t had the trailer before Wonder Woman opens in July.

Now that’s a loaded title! Perfectly designed to stand out amongst all the glowing Logan reviews in your MySpace timeline. Some will call it ‘clickbait’. Those people probably don’t understand what ‘clickbait’ is.
I write the title with a heavy heart, though. I wanted to love Logan. Everybody else seemed to. It’s a superhero Western with blood and swearing and Jean-Luc Picard. It’s like James Mangold looked up my Netflix viewing history, saw High Noon, Star Trek: The Next Generation and RuPaul’s Drag Race and thought, ‘let’s make a Wolverine solo movie specifically for this guy!’
Actually, ignore that whole RuPaul’s Drag Race part.
My reasons for not enjoying Logan are coming, but before we get there, I need to devote at least 500 words to over-establishing context. »

“The answer of what is happening to you is here.”
So says the commanding voice of Zordon (Bryan Cranston) to five recently empowered superhero teens in the latest “Power Rangers” trailer. The footage has the quintet, slowly learning how to use their powers, battling alien invader Rita Repulsa, played by none other than Elizabeth Banks.
“Five little rangers,” Banks, dressed in green armor and holding a golden scepter, sneers. “How cute.”
The trailer is some of the best footage fans have seen of Rita in action, plus a look at Goldar, the giant golden monster she commands. Dramatic Edm music overlays the fighting clips, as Red, Blue, Pink, Yellow, and Black Rangers test out their newly obtained powers and zords (mechanical dinosaurs).

While we continue to wait for the new trailer, director Zack Snyder has teased an action sequence from November’s Justice League movie, sharing a photo from the post-production studio featuring Ben Affleck’s Batman going up against some heavily armoured – and heavily armed – mystery villains.
And here’s a closer look at the scene in question…
So, who do you think those bad guys are? Let us know in the comments below…
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, »

With the March 24 release date rapidly approaching, Lionsgate has released a final trailer for Power Rangers with brand new footage, along with another TV spot. These new videos give fans a better look at the iconic Zordon, voiced by Bryan Cranston, along with a new glimpse at the villainous Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) and Goldar, plus a brief scene with Alpha 5 (Bill Hader). The Alpha 5 scene shows that, while he is certainly lacking in size, he's more than capable of taking care of himself, as he takes down an enemy while screaming "Power Rangers!" Alpha 5 could very well be a scene-stealing character in this immense ensemble when he makes his big screen return on March 24.
Lionsgate debuted this 60-second trailer and 30-second TV spot on YouTube, which also features some footage showing how strong these teenagers have become after finding the power coins. There is also a new scene where Rj Cyler's Billy Cranston, »

The mysteries of that stretch of sea are not only of interest to Skydance—Universal and Warner Bros. are also putting together projects based on the Bermuda Triangle.
