One of next year’s more intriguing blockbuster prospects is Kong: Skull Island, which takes viewers to the titular home of the iconic movie monster for his first movie in over 10 years. As many predicted, Warner Bros. debuted the official trailer for the film during today’s panel at Comic-Con, giving us our best look yet at the new action-adventure starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and one ginormous ape.

So far we've only seen a handful of photos and a teaser for Wonder Woman’s upcoming solo debut, but Warner Bros. made sure to bring some surprises to San Diego Comic-Con today. After playing a brief teaser featuring logos for their upcoming DC movies and introducing their diverse lineup of directors (including James Wan and Rick Famuyiwa), WB debuted the first full, official trailer for Wonder Woman.
To say that Robert De Niro needs a hit movie isn’t exactly true. De Niro has been responsible for so many iconic films and characters over his 50 years of acting that he has pretty much earned the right to do whatever he pleases. If he wants to make sex comedies with Zac Efron, he can make sex comedies with Zac Ephron. If wants to only pop in for guest appearances in David O. Russell films, well, hey, he can do that to.
Where were you when you first found out that Seth Rogen was making an animated movie about sex-crazed foodstuffs? I don’t think it’s too much of an exaggeration to say that this will be the kind of moment that defines a generation. Grizzled old men will sit around campfires and tell bright-eyed children wondrous stories about the Before Time, a time when animated movies were for children and food was just a thing you ate. The world is much different now.
When is a movie not a movie? When it’s actually a secret sequel (a legacyquel, really) to another movie.
Marvel Television’s huge Netflix panel at San Diego Comic-Con was loaded with surprises, and plenty of new teasers and trailers. You’ve got your Luke Cage trailer and you’ve got your Defenders teaser. But what would the Defenders be without Iron Fist? They would just be two guys and a woman who fought crime, but didn’t have a crazy martial artist who could harness his chi into his hands for mega-powerful punches. Still pretty formidable, to be honest. But not quite as cool.
In some ways, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a higher-end version of James Franco but occasionally you have to wonder if we’ve allowed him to take himself a little too seriously. Take the latest trailer for Oliver Stone’s Snowden, for instance, which A.) Reminds you that this is a movie that is still coming out soon, and B.) Features one of the most baffling prestige-acting accents in recent memory.
If horror films have taught us anything over the last several decades, it’s this: Children are creepy as hell. Such is the case in the trailer for Before I Wake, the new film from Oculus director Mike Flanagan, who takes that adorable kid from Room and turns him into a parent’s worst nightmare — literally.
Perhaps understandably so, the first trailer for Disney’s Moana was a bit more preoccupied with Maui, the jovial demigod character voiced by Dwayne Johnson. What can we say? The Rock is an instant selling point, even when we’re only hearing his voice. But the international trailer puts the spotlight on the titular hero, seen here in the opening scene as a cute little toddler who discovers that she has a rather magical connection to the ocean.
After sitting out xXx: State of the Union, Vin Diesel returns to the role of EXTREME sports enthusiast Xander Cage in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. The first trailer for the reasonably titled sequel has arrived online, offering a sneak peek at Diesel and his new team of EXTREME sports pals and all their EXTREME sports skills — like skiing in the forest in the middle of summer — that will come in handy when they take on an international conspiracy.
