This just looks great, and is the perfect way to get audiences interested without spoiling too much. Hit the jump for a brief synopsis and the teaser!

Anakin Obi-Wan Clone Wars

If you thought that Season 6 (a.k.a. The Lost Missions) of Star Wars: The Clone Wars that debuted on Netflix this past March after last year’s cancellation of the show on Cartoon Network would be the last stories we’d ever see from the critically-acclaimed animated series – think again! Just recently, StarWars.com made four more episodes of the series available to stream online, revealing a four-part story arc with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker on a mission to stop General Grevious from retrieving a powerful weapon for the Separatist Leader (and Sith Lord) Count Dooku.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

The first teaser trailer for Peter Jackson’s final chapter in The Hobbit Trilogy has arrived. It shows us plainly that The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies will mostly be about one thing – war, as Thorin Oakenshield puts it here in our first real glimpse of the film. But if it has that special Jackson, Walsh and Boyens touch behind the script and direction that the teaser seems to imply, this should prove to be quite an emotional ride as well.

It really is a well put together trailer, featuring the song “Home is Behind,” as sung by Billy Boyd in The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, playing over images of armies marching to battle and beloved characters facing ultimate peril against the various evil forces threatening Middle Earth. Oh, and we see a bit of Smaug burning things, which of course is really cool. All in all, quite a tease indeed! Hit the jump to watch!

Before the Dawn

20th Century Fox has teamed up with Vice to produce three short film prequels that lead up to the new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes film (which, by the way, is getting rave reviews). The project is called Before the Dawn, and the films (each directed by a different director) take place during the ten years in between Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn, chronicling the pandemic caused by the Simian Flu that devastated the human population.

Jupiter Ascending

Originally included in Popcorn Monster’s Top 10 List for movies to see this summer, the release of the Wachowski sibling’s sci-fi epic Jupiter Ascending has since been delayed from July 18th to Februrary 6, 2015, presumably due to so many other big releases arriving this summer (since their last film, Cloud Atlas bombed, the studio may not have as much confidence in the directors’ latest endeavor to put it up against other summer releases).

Nevertheless, the previews for the film look astounding to say the least, and it truly bums me out that this film isn’t coming out sooner. Hopefully the delayed the movie’s release to the traditionally more dead movie month of Februrary will give the Wachowskis enough time to polish the film more and make it an even better experience for audiences (and perhaps produce better box office results). Hit the jump for the amazing second trailer!

Dracula Untold

The first trailer for Dracula Untold, starring Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) as the man who becomes the blood-sucking vampire of legend, has made its way online. This is really the first movie where we actually get a full-blown origin story on the character, and, from the looks of it, we’re basically getting The Lord of the Rings with vampires. The trailer really does sell on the story as well as the visual effects, and it actually doesn’t look all that bad. Perhaps a giant fantasy epic featuring Dracula may just be what we need to breathe new life into the character? Hit the jump to check out the trailer and decide for yourself!

If you thought the first trailer for director Jonathan Liebesman’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live-action film didn’t look so hot, you might want to take a look at the new trailer that just debuted today. It is by far a much better look at what to expect from the movie, and it looks awesome. Lots of action, better glimpses at what the Ninja Turtles look like, a brief look at Master Splinter, and we finally get to see the Shredder – who, by the way, is going to give “Super Shredder” from 1991′s TMNT II a run for his money.

Star Wars episode viii

Just when we though we couldn’t receive bigger news than who will be helming the next two Star Wars spinoff films (Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards and Chronicle‘s Josh Trank), Deadline has dropped an even bigger bomb today, reporting that Disney/Lucasfilm have chosen a new director for Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Star Wars Episode VII

All good things come to those who wait…

After months and months of speculation and endless casting rumors, we now finally have an official casting announcement for director J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. Of course, it comes as no surprise that the original cast is returning (especially after having been spotted in London recently where Episode VII will begin filming). But this announcement also contains a list of other names added to the cast – some of which would be considered “unknowns,” meaning they’re not incredibly famous actors (not uncommon for a Star Wars film), and others that are definitely more well-known, and quite a surprise to say the least! Hit the jump for the official press release!
