The Woman in Black: Angel of Death

In 2012, British film studio Hammer Films produced a little gothic horror film starring Daniel Radcliffe (in his first movie role outside of the Harry Potter franchise) that was received well enough by critics (I loved it), and apparently managed to pull off enough of a profit to warrant a sequel – The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, debuting January 2nd.

Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), is the only actor I recognize out of the film’s all-British cast (Radcliffe will not be in the sequel), but this is a great thing, keeping in line with the Hammer tradition of casting English actors. I, for one, cannot wait for this sequel, as the first film was the best horror film Hammer produced since the studio resurfaced back in 2010 (Let Me In, Hammer‘s British take on the Swedish film Let the Right One In, comes in at a close second).

Gothic horror is a very difficult genre to get right, and director James Watkins nailed it in my opinion with the first film. One can only hope that the sequel’s director Tom Harker can create that same kind of spark. From the looks of it, Harper and his creative team know what they’re doing. Let’s just hope I’m right on this. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer that landed online just in time for Halloween!

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

Joss Whedon’s The Avengers busted a lot of blocks when it debuted two years ago. It represented everything Marvel fans had been waiting for, ever since the news broke that a big budget live-action cinematic universe was being created through various stand-alone comic book movies that would eventually unite the title characters of those films into one gigantic mega force to be reckoned on screen. The idea was bold (very bold indeed), and it paid off – big time. Expectations were through the roof for Marvel’s The Avengers, and as far as I can tell, those expectations were pretty much met all across the board. Everyone loves this movie.

So how do you live up to the seemingly unbeatable legacy of the first film with a sequel? Honestly, I have no idea. All I know is that the first teaser trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron makes the movie look like it has a pretty darn good chance. Hit the jump to watch (Updated with new clip from the film)!

Tomorrowland

Sometimes all you need is a simple tease to become intrigued, as is the case with the first teaser trailer for Disney’s Tomorrowland, directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol), and starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson.

Not much is revealed here – not much at all really. But what is shown is surprisingly plenty enough to get sci-fi enthusiasts licking their chops for more. 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 theĀ 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 AscendingĀ 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. Hit the jump to watch!
