Full Star Trek Teaser Trailer

The full length trailer for the continuation of this rebooted sci-fi franchise is here, and damn is it epic. Benedict Cumberbatch is more than a force to be reckoned with, and it's great to see Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho & Anton Yelchin back in space. Watch now!

Here's the first full teaser trailer for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness, in high def via Apple:

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated everything the fleet stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a "one man weapon of mass destruction."

Star Trek Into Darkness is the sequel to the J.J. Abrams-directed reboot of Gene Roddenberry's original science fiction series. The screenplay this time was co-written by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman & Damon Lindelof. Most of the crew is back, including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin & John Cho. Paramount is bringing Into Darkness to theaters May 17th.

Second Trailer for Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' Trilogy + Alternate Endings

Warner Bros/WingNut Films have unveiled the new trailer for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the beginning of Bilbo's three-part adventure into Middle Earth. Martin Freeman plays Bilbo Baggins, and is joined by the company of dwarves, lead by Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield. Of course, Sir Ian McKellen is back as Gandalf, and there's glimpses of Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving and even Sylvester McCoy as Radagast the Brown. This is a much more magnificent and, honestly, more exciting improvement over the first trailer, which I enjoyed, but I think Jackson is settling into the story and getting ready to bring us another spectacular fantasy epic.

Is Rupert Wyatt Exiting ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes?’

Despite its awful title, Rise of the Planet of the Apes was actually one of the biggest surprises of 2011. Anchored by a brilliant motion capture performance by Andy Serkis, a well-developed script by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, and solid direction by Rupert Wyatt, the movie was given rave reviews and was a box office smash, pulling in $481 million globally on a modest $93 million budget. The success led 20th Century Fox to almost immediately green light a sequel that would follow the continuing development of Caesar and his ape army, but now it's looking like the project may lose its director.

New UK Poster for SKYFALL

Eon Productions has debuted the latest poster (via ComingSoon) for James Bond's Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes, starring Daniel Craig as 007.  They've gone back to the classy Bond we know, just posing him with Walter PPK in hand in front of the dark gun-barrel swirl and a hint of London's Union Jack. I quite like it, but it's not that original in design. See in full below!

The Legacy Rises at the Box Office

It seemed like an impossible mission to stop The Dark Knight Rises topping the charts for a fourth week.

But spy thriller The Bourne Legacy managed to accomplish the feat thanks to a whopping $40.3m opening.

And it seems punters voted on their feet for Will Ferrell's latest movie The Campaign, as it sped past the superhero picture to take the second spot.

'The Dark Knight Rises' First Wave Of Reviews

As I'm combing through these reviews it's safe to say that Christopher Nolan has not only met the high expectations of fans and critics, but more importantly conquered the curse of the third film in a franchise. Which is something that eluded films like Godfather 3, Alien 3, Superman III, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Toy Story 3, just to name a few.

Final The Dark Knight Rises Trailer Hits

Warner Bros. has released what will presumably be the final trailer for the film.  Entitled “Journey”, the latest trailer pulls clips from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight before showing how Bane’s arrival in Gotham will force Batman to join an all-out street war.  There are some new pieces of footage in this trailer, but it doesn't look like there are any major spoilers.

'God of War' Back Gets A New Writer Duo

The last update I heard regarding a big screen version of the hit video game God of War placed Brett Ratner as the adaptation's director when the project was still at Universal Pictures. Now, years later, Sony Pictures is starting fresh on the property and The Hollywood Reporter says that the studio has brought aboard Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to draft a screenplay.

Awesome old School 'Dark Knight Rises' Midnight IMAX Poster

One final IMAX midnight poster has been revealed on Fandango (via Movies.com) that features Bane and nothing but Bane, played by Tom Hardy. I know we've seen an inordinate amount of The Dark Knight Rises posters and banners and photos recently, but we're down to the last few weeks—days, almost—so why not go all out, throw everything on the table, and end this thing with a bang. All 12:01AM IMAX moviegoers will get one.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey gets a Massive Banner!

Whoa, what kind of odd marketing is this? Entertainment Weekly (via ComingSoon) has unveiled a new banner for Peter Jackson's The Hobbit that, in 5000px of horizontal digital space, visualizes the entire story. Or at least, the entire story that I think we'll be seeing in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Lots of great visuals and imagery in this as a perfect tease for The Hobbit. Take a look after the jump!

13-Minute TV Special on The Dark Knight Rises!

For the next two weeks, avoiding spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises might be as easy as tiptoeing through a minefield. Press screenings have begun, which means fan screenings will soon start, too, and all the secrets to Christopher Nolan‘s highly anticipated conclusion of his Batman trilogy will be out in the wild. Thankfully, this brand new 13-minute featurette has very little in the way of new spoilers.

The video takes us through the obvious story arc following The Dark Knight, as it talks about cast, characters and gives a great behind the scenes look at several of the big action scenes that have been revealed to date. We see the plane, the football field, Wall Street, and more. Acting as sort of a catch-all to the previously released images, posters, trailers and commercials, this featurette is an absolute perfect way to increase your excitement for the film without ruining too much of the story. Check it out below.

Amazing International Trailer for 'The Tall Man' Horror

Thanks to Vlicious, we have an international (French) trailer for the film The Tall Man. The film is called The Secret in France, written & directed by Pascal Laugier (Martyrs), starring Jessica Biel and Jodelle Ferland, about a guy who takes children. This trailer is way better than I was expecting. It looks totally chilling and unsettling, but also surprisingly well-made. There's a very tense vibe to it, and I'm curious to find out what's really going on. Check this out!

HQ Promo Shots for The Amazing Spider-Man

We still have to wait until Friday until The Amazing Spider-Man to hit 3D, but in the meantime, we've got a HQ version of the great new shot of Spidey as well as the previously-mentioned Lizard bus shelter poster with both a text version and a textless version underneath.

‘Total Recall’ Theatrical Trailer

Everything you thought you know might not be what it seems. That’s both true in the world of Total Recall and regarding your previous thoughts on the movie. Sony just released a brand new trailer for the Len Wiseman directed August 3 remake starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel and it’s filled with so many epic looking action scenes, set pieces and special effects, it might actually get you pumped up for the film. The story is almost beat for beat the same as Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 original (which in turn was based on a Phillip K. Dick short story) but Wiseman’s budget definitely makes this, at least look like, a remake that’ll be worth seeing.

Check out the trailer after the jump.

'The Avengers', Now Third Highest Grossing Film of All Time

We may be nearing the halfway point of the summer movie season already, but Marvel’s The Avengers is still looming over the 2012 “blockbusters” that have come and gone like the slightly older yet much more successful brother of the bunch.  We’ve seen moderate box office successes from films like Men in Black 3, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Madagascar 3, but nothing has come close to the behemoth box office giant that was Marvel’s mother of all superhero movies.

The film shattered the opening weekend record with over $200 million in three days, and now Disney has announced that The Avengers is expected to cross the $600 million domestic mark today, making it only the third film in history to reach that number.  Hit the jump for more, including a rundown of what the all-time box office chart looks like now.

New IMAX Poster for 'The Amazing Spider-Man'

It doesn’t matter which side of the law you’re on, but to qualify for this edition of Poster Roundup, you must wear a mask.

Those who attend the midnight showings of The Amazing Spider-Man at IMAX theaters on July 3 will be rewarded with a neat poster of Spidey in action, designed exclusively for the event.
