One thing is for sure, Luc Besson really likes to think outside the box. That is pretty clear in what we have been seeing in the marketing campaign for his new film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. A new trailer dropped this morning, giving us another look at the space opera The Professional director has created. Some even call the film the spiritual successor to The Fifth Element. Judging by the looks of things, that is very true.
Though the films may not take place in the same world, Atomic Blonde, starring Charlize Theron, definitely has the makings of a feminine John Wick. Considering that the film is helmed by John Wick co-director David Leitch, that’s no surprise. A new trailer for the film has been released, showing just how adept Theron’s spy character is at hand-to-hand combat, weapons, and one has to assume the honeypot. Check it out here below.

“Hold onto your butts,” United States Army Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Samuel L. Jackson) proclaims as he and his squad act as a military escort for an expedition team that charts a newly discovered island. You may have heard that line before in Jurassic Park, but the anxiousness that swells over before the outcome is the same nonetheless. In fact, that’s the kind of feeling you get when watching Kong: Skull Island. The unconventional story of the King of the Monsters doesn’t rehash the story that has been retold countless times; instead, it focuses solely on the island itself and the monsters that inhabit it. Check out the full review below.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about the upcoming Kong: Skull Island is that the film is a period piece, that takes place almost entirely on the titular island. Set in the 1970s, an expedition team sets out to chart the recently discovered island only to find out that there are dark secrets and scary beasts that roam the land.
Previous trailers pretty much set the narrative and loose connections to the King of Monsters universe, that Warner Bros and Legendary are creating, but now this new trailer is all about the action between the humans killing the oversized monsters and Kong, who is king of the island.
Warner Brothers Pictures has released a collection of promos for the next King Kong movie, titled Kong: Skull Island. The movie is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, and stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, Corey Hawkins, and Jason Mitchell.
