Goodnight Mommy first debuted at Fantastic Fest in 2014, and has since become one of the most anticipated horror films of this year. As you can see in the first trailer, Austrian directing duo Severin Fiala and Veronika Franz have crafted a wholly unnerving psychological horror story about two boys coping with some…changes…in their mother.

If you are not watching The Knick, it should definitely be high up on your list of television priorities. Steven Soderbergh’s early 20th century period medical drama is gorgeously cinematic and exquisitely intense, and may be some of the filmmaker’s finest work to date. Today brings our first look at Season 2 via an appropriately unnerving and slightly surreal teaser — in addition to revealing a quarantine in San Francisco, the teaser also promises an October premiere.

Between the brilliance of Inside Amy Schumer and the relatable hilarity of Trainwreck (you could swap adjectives to describe both, really), Amy Schumer is on top of the world. Her recent GQ Star Wars photo shoot only further cemented her status as an icon, and Schumer will soon follow in the footsteps of her fellow comedic icons with her own HBO special — which now has its very own premiere date.

As skeptical as many fans rightfully have been about Josh Trank’s reboot of Fantastic Four, there’s something sort of appealing about the film’s aesthetic and tone from the various teasers and trailers. In keeping with 20th Century Fox’s recent X-Men films, Fantastic Four looks as though it walks the line between the fun, vibrant world of the MCU and the grittier, stylized approach of Zack Snyder’s DCU.

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. definitely has a more prolonged shooting schedule than Marvel’s films, though with only Man of Steel to show for their efforts, it remains to be seen if this works in their favor. The studio has lined up schedules for two of their next superhero films, with Wonder Woman heading into production later this year and Justice League following early next year.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation hits theaters this week, and it’s already been earning crazy good reviews for the latest installment in Tom Cruise’s action-packed franchise. There’s plenty to love in the sequel, in which Cruise continues to fully dedicate himself to some insane stunts. But as with most films, there were some pretty awesome scenes that hit the cutting room floor due to time, like this 10-minute scene with Alec Baldwin described by director Christopher McQuarrie.

‘Spotlight’ Trailer: Michael Keaton and Rachel McAdams Are True Church Detectives

One thing is for certain about director Tom McCarthy — he’s been very diverse, which makes him a bit unpredictable. His most recent film was the laughably, inconceivably awful The Cobbler, starring Adam Sandler. But prior to that he made acclaimed films like The Station Agent and Win Win. With that little Adam Sandler hiccup behind us now, we’re free to look forward to Spotlight, a new drama featuring an excellent ensemble cast and some very serious subject matter. Best of all: no magic shoes.

While doing the rounds during TCAs 2015, former showrunner Steven DeKnight talked not only of Daredevil and plans for Season 2, but about his involvement in another big franchise: Transformers. Not only has DeKnight revealed which writers will officially be tackling Transformers 5, but he’s opened up a bit about the franchise’s “brain trust” and how it works.

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige previously discussed the tone of the upcoming Spider-Man reboot, comparing it to the classic teen films of John Hughes. That’s a pretty high bar to set for the franchise, but an admirable aspiration all the same. It’s a challenge that director Jon Watts seems capable of taking on, and while we don’t know too much just yet about his plans, Watts has opened the door just a crack to give us a peek at what he has in store for Spidey.
