For the few of you who decided to camp out in the woods this weekend without any internet and had no idea San Diego Comic-Con was happening until you got back from your trip – you’re in luck!

During the course of the weekend, a whole plethora of brand new trailers debuted. Dr. Strange, Kong: Skull Island, The Lego Batman Movie, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Suicide Squad and even The Woods – which was just revealed to actually be the next Blair Witch movie (and is already receiving fantastic reviews from those that caught the screening at the Con, in case you’re thinking it’s going to be just another Book of Shadows).

Hit the jump to check ’em all out in one place! In short, EVERYTHING looks great, and we are clearly living in the new golden age of geek cinema…

Captain America: Civil War

Summertime. For most, it means going to the beach, blasting off fireworks, grilling steaks, etc. But for movie geeks, it means lining up for some of the years most anticipated blockbusters. Who needs fun in the sun and the smell of barbeque and gunpowder in the air when you have the comfort of a cool movie theater with the smell of buttered popcorn to look forward to just about every week? Okay, well, I like all of those things, but seriously this summer is going to be insane. Really don’t think I’ll even make it to all of these. Will you? Check out this year’s list of the Top 10 Movies to See This Summer and find out!

Rogue One

It seemed like this trailer would never arrive. Finally, after years of waiting, we receive the official teaser trailer for the first Star Wars stand-alone film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla). Set before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, the story shines on the rebel fighters who set out on a mission to steal the Death Star plans that make their way into the hands of Princess Leia in A New Hope. Hit the jump to watch!

Batman v Superman

This is it. The first time both Superman and Batman share the big screen in a live-action film is finally here. Ever since Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns comic book series first made its way into the hands of tens of thousands of superhero geeks around the world back in 1986, we’ve all wished and hoped for a live-action book-to-film adaptation of Miller’s story. While of course Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is not that story, it still brings us DC’s two most popular comic book heroes together for the first time in a live-action movie that is very much inspired by Miller’s story, and that is something we need to step back, breathe, and be grateful for. Even ten years ago, I would’ve completely denied it as a possibility that we would ever get a film like this. Yet somehow, here we are – and it brought a big smile to my face.

Ghostbusters (2016)

Call me crazy, but this looks really good.

The first trailer for Paul Feig’s long-awaited reboot (or is it?) of the Ghostbusters franchise is finally here after many fits and starts over the last decade. Simply titled Ghostbusters, the film stars Kristin Wiig, Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon taking over for the original cast from 30 years ago, battling the paranormal in the great city of New York (what a town!).

Little is known about the plot outside of this trailer, and unfortunately the original surviving cast was never confirmed to reprise their original roles from the first two films, and may just be playing different characters instead. Last we’ve heard, this is apparently not Ghostbusters 3 but rather a total reboot – although the trailer is misleading if Feig is indeed starting over here. But in the meantime, check out the new cast in action as they answer the call to chase ghosts, and get a peek at Slimer!

X-Files_Cast

After so many years of waiting, wondering whether or not Fox’s hit series The X-Files would ever get a third film, Fox decided that a limited series event for television was a better way to go, green-lighting six more episodes instead. Needless to say, fans were ecstatic. While we didn’t get a movie, we actually got more than we ever asked for, which was fantastic. More mythology, plus stand-alone stories for Mulder and Scully to investigate. It is hard to believe that it has already come and gone!

Star Wars: Episode VIII

Well, any hopes of getting director Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII in the summer following Gareth Edwards’ Rogue One this December have been shattered. Lucasfilm has made an official announcement regarding the release date, which is now set for December 15, 2017, instead of the original May 26, 2017 date that it was previously slated for.

The Lone Gunmen

Last July, it was revealed that The Lone Gunmen (played by Bruce Harwood,Tom Braidwood and Dean Haglund) would return for the new limited series of The X-Files. Of course, this was shocking news, consider that they were very much dead by the end of the show’s initial run back in 2002. Some speculated that series creator Chris Carter might bring them back in a similar fashion to what was done in the “Season 10” comic series, of which I have since clarified how that plot line really doesn’t work. Chris Carter seems to agree. Read on to find out what he said at the TCA Winter Press Tour about the return of these beloved characters and how they will come back (minor spoilers ahead)!

X-Files Revival

After being off the air for almost fourteen years, The X-Files will finally return to television with a two-night premiere starting January 24th at 10 PM EST/7 PM PST on Fox (Mondays at 8 PM after that). The hype has been enormous for this six-episode event, much more than for their second feature film back in 2008 (the advent of social media has changed things a bit since then).

Originally, we never though The X-Files would return to television, and fans were actually holding out hope for a third feature film. We still are. Well today, via THR, series creator Chris Carter gives us hope yet again, revealing that he had indeed originally wrote a script for a third film, should 20th Century Fox ever want one. Looks like our suspicions were true after all!
