New Captive State Trailer Drops John Goodman Into an Alien Invasion

New Captive State Trailer Drops John Goodman Into an Alien Invasion
A new trailer for the mysterious sci-fi thriller Captive State starring John Goodman and Vera Farmiga has arrived online. A trailer was also released last month but, so far, it looks like the studio really wants to keep this movie largely under wraps until it's released. There are some strange vibes going on here and, based on this latest tease, it looks like they've thrown a Cloverfield movie and an entry in The Purge franchise in a blender. Done the right way, that could prove to be very entertaining.

The trailer starts by pointing out how strong and well off America is, with a mysterious voice disputing the factuality of these claims. We then see a bunch of quick cuts of disastrous events breaking out, seemingly at the behest of a mysterious, unidentified force. The unknown presence notes "the Phoenix will rise." We're guessing that mysterious force has something to

Intense New ‘Captive State’ Trailer Doesn’t Need Aliens to Be Scary

You don't really need the extraterrestrial threat of alien invasion to amp up the existential threat of living under authoritarian rule these days, but Captive State has opted to go there anyway. A new trailer for the upcoming film, which hails from the filmmaker behind Rise of the Planet of the Apes, plays up the propaganda machines on both sides of a divide: One who's collaborating with the alien occupiers and overlords, and another who's resisting alien rule and rejecting any message that comes from them. It'll be interesting to see how this film is received …

Escape Room Trailer Locks 6 Strangers in a Deadly Trap

Now that Saw is on permanent hiatus until Lionsgate once again decides to reboot the popular horror franchise, we're getting the much tamer Escape Room, which basically follows the same premise, as spelled out in the tagline on the first one-sheet, 'Find the Clues, or Die!' Sounds familiar enough, doesn't it? Sony has also released the first trailer for this thriller which is coming very early in 2019. In fact, it's so close, you can almost taste the stainless steel in your mouth.

Escape Room is a psychological thriller about six strangers who find themselves in circumstances beyond their control and must use their wits to find the clues or perish in the most horrible way possible. Yup, sounds like Saw to us. And sure, Escape Rooms have become a popular pastime for people who want to torment themselves these past few years. But let's face it. Saw was the

Gambit Will Be A Romantic Comedy, Shoots In Early 2019

No, your eyes do not deceive you; Fox’s long-gestating Gambit spinoff is finally starting to put the wheels into motion.

From what we understand, the Powers That Be want to fast-track Remy LeBeau’s origin story before the Disney-Fox merger is fully consummated next summer, by which point the House of Mouse – and, more specifically, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige – will take ownership of the X-Men and Fox’s band of merry mutants from 2019 onwards.

That would make Gambit the final film in the X-Universe to release before 20th Century Fox cedes control of its precious entertainment assets, and according to producer Simon Kinberg, they’re hoping to kick things off early next year. Following up on a report just the other week which told us as much, the Dark Phoenix director spoke to IGN recently and confirmed the following:

Gambit has a great script and we’re

‘Captive State’ Trailer: John Goodman Gives Thanks In Extraterrestrial-Occupied Chicago

Rupert Wyatt’s career trajectory post-2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” has certainly been curious. After the tepid response to his follow-up “The Gambler,” Wyatt has mostly turned towards working in television, directing episodes of “Turn: Washington’s Spies” and ‘The Exorcist‘ series. Most intriguing though is that Wyatt is slated to direct episodes for Showtime’s highly anticipated “Halo” adaptation due in 2020.
