The first trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence arrived over the weekend, and while we’ve known for some time that Will Smith wouldn’t be returning to reprise his role for the sequel, we were still hoping that maybe the trailer would address his absence — after all, they cast Jessie Usher as Captain Hiller’s son, and even Vivica A. Fox came back. Surely Smith’s character will be mentioned in passing at the very least, right? If you’re curious about how Resurgence will deal with Smith’s absence, the viral website has an answer.

Most DC Comics fans are currently focusing all of their anticipatory energies on Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which opens in theaters next March and will kick off Warner Bros.’ attempt to seriously compete with Marvel and their Cinematic Universe of Avengers. But Warners and DC are already looking ahead to the movies that come after Batman v Superman. First up is Suicide Squad, about a team of super-villains working for the U.S. government in exchange for commuted sentences. Then there’s Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman solo film, following her introduction in Batman v Superman. And at some point down the line, probably in 2018, we should get a solo Batman movie starring Ben Affleck. Just what that movie will look like, and what it will be about, remains unclear.

A new trailer for Concussion has arrived, featuring more footage from the upcoming sports drama starring Will Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist who discovers just how traumatic — and fatal — head injuries can be for football players. Based on actual events (and ongoing controversy), Concussion looks like a very different kind of sports movie, though there’s still something a bit average about these trailers.

David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie looks like a lot of things: a gritty comic book movie, a super villain super-team-up, an action-packed anti-hero story, a showcase for Batman villain / career nut job Harley Quinn, etc. etc. It looks like a lot of things, but what it doesn’t look like is a love story. According to Ayer and Will Smith, there is actually a bit of a love story happening in Suicide Squad — actually, it’s more of a wacky love triangle.

Jared Leto could probably best be described as a little intense. And this was before he signed on to play The Joker in Suicide Squad. Rumors that Leto never broke character have been confirmed by co-star Will Smith who said that despite working with the Oscar-winning actor for six months, he still has never actually met the man himself.

The first trailer for Sony’s Concussion dropped earlier this week, showing off the new Will Smith football drama centering on the doctor who challenged the NFL over the longterm effects of repeated head injuries. Although the film doesn’t hit theaters until Christmas, it’s already inspiring a bit of real-life drama as reports suggest that Sony may have had the script changed to avoid angering the NFL, while the league itself has begun to develop its own game plan.
