Gringo follows a pharmaceutical executive who’s sent on a business trip to Mexico. Things do not go well. Not at all. You can find a full synopsis for the movie and watch one of two (or both!) trailers below.
Cloverfield sequels aren’t exactly sequels, but they aren’t exactly spinoffs either. So while 10 Cloverfield Lane may have a similar title, it isn’t a direct sequel, it is a spiritual sequel that shares loose connections to its predecessor. Basically, these films are a part of a larger universe. The characters just don’t know it. But it is the fact that you never see these films coming that is not only surprising but refreshing.
But to hide that 10 Cloverfield Lane was related, the film was shot as Valencia and then changed its title a few months before release. With the Cloverfield films popular again, it’s easy to see why people might be more interested in any new titles from Bad Robot and Paramount.
However, Paramount isn’t exactly being secretive about God Particle being the next chapter of the series. In fact, we are learning more about the film and how it ended up being connected. Check it out below.
Back in January of this year came the surprising reveal of 10 Cloverfield Lane, director Dan Trachtenberg’s super secret “blood relative” to producer J.J. Abrams 2008 hit Cloverfield. Abrams made it very clear, however, that the movie was not Cloverfield 2. The two were connected, but part of something much bigger.
Now that much bigger thing is beginning to become even more clear. It’s been revealed that a movie titled God Particle, which Abrams has been attached to as a producer for a while now, is another Cloverfield-related project. More info on the movie, what it’s about, and who stars, can be found below.

Looking past all the animated features, Marvel superheroes, and Star Wars films, Disney has also been making a name for itself telling inspiring sports stories. Queen Of Katwe is just one of those films that we rarely see from a major studio, but when they put it out, you can be sure they have made every effort to make sure that it will strike an emotional chord or, in this case, make the right moves. For this film is no ordinary based on a true story about any sport, it’s about a young girl who makes it out of the slums of Uganda by playing the game of chess. A mind game so to speak where your next move could be your last. But there is also so much more to this than just moving pieces on a board. The reality is that this film is driven by themes of family and perseverance, overcoming those terrifying obstacles called real life, and realizing that even though there will be some losses, you can still come out a champion. My full review below.
So often we forget that Disney is so much more than animation, Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar, live-action adaptations of animated classics, they also have other inspirational stories to tell. And in the past six months, we have seen Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o star in two of the studio’s latest hit: Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Jungle Book. However, both films hid her face, the former being her first doing motion capture work and the latter saw her in her first major voice over role.
Now you will actually be able to get to see her in Disney’s upcoming uplifting drama, Queen of Katwe, where the actress plays the mother of a chess prodigy. You can check out the full trailer below.
