Heroes often say that they were just doing their job or what they’ve been trained to do. But that should not take away from the fact that what they did is truly extraordinary. Because no matter what they did or how many lives they saved, they were at the right place at the right time. That has been true many times, and it has also served as an inspiration for films. Like when three U.S. soldiers aboard a train to Paris risked their lives to stop a terrorist from killing passengers.
Now their selfless act will be retold by Clint Eastwood in The 15:17 to Paris. Check out the first trailer for the film below.
Netflix has released the first trailer for Santa Clarita Diet, a new series starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant that offers a comedic twist on zombies.
In the show, Barrymore’s character finds herself undead. But she doesn’t look like a zombie; she looks like she’s always looked. She feels like she’s always felt—better, even! All is pretty much the same as it’s always been…except for her eating habits. Now all she wants to eat is other people.

Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Chris Wedge‘s Monster Truck. And it is exactly like it sounds. It’s a monster in a truck. If that doesn’t sound special or like something that might appeal to you, then you should know that this is one of the films that Paramount predicts they will lose money on. But maybe, just maybe, this is something that will surprise us all. But judging by the way it looks, don’t be surprised if you hear a lot of negative things about it.
A trailer for the new movie from Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, titled Hell Baby, has been released online. The duo are two of the creators of Reno 911! and The State, and are making their feature directorial debut here in addition to penning the screenplay.
The movie is a horror-comedy about a couple who are expecting their first child when they move into their new home, a run down mess of a house in New Orleans…that also happens to be haunted.
You can read a full synopsis and check out the trailer for Hell Baby below now.

I’ll be honest, when I found out the exhibits at the Museum of Natural History would be coming to life on screen once more in Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian I wasn’t all that enthusiastic. I figured the “magic” was already revealed in the first movie and that this sequel would just be more of the same. Let’s face it, the first film, which starred Ben Stiller as Larry Daley, a night guard at the Museum of Natural History in New York, was a hit, so why mess with a perfect formula? That’s why screenwriters Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant were smart enough to stick with what drew audiences in initially — the inanimate exhibit figures coming to life at sundown and Larry fighting villains attempting to gain control of a powerful object — while making it much more than just a simple repeat of its predecessor.
The sequel finds Larry out of his museum night guard duds and into the role of CEO of Daley Devices, the company founded to sell his inventions, like the The Glow-In-The-Dark Flashlight and The Unloseable Keyring. The successful Larry decides to visit his old place of employment, the Museum of Natural History, the setting of 2006’s Night at the Museum, which is now closed for renovations and its famous exhibits packed away in crates to be sent to permanent storage at the Smithsonian Institute’s Federal Archives in Washington DC. After hours, the figures come to life and Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams) explains that the Pharaoh Ahkmenrah’s Tablet, which is what animates the figures at sundown, won’t be going to the Archives with everyone else. While the situation is dire for his friends, Larry is distracted by his phone’s incoming messages and all of his business ventures to do anything about it.
