While we don’t have an official date yet, The X-Files is returning to FOX for an 11th season sometime in 2018. Out of New York Comic Con comes the first trailer, which you can check out below. I enjoyed the divisive Season 10 – how about you?
Superman lives, at least for a few minutes, in this brand new trailer for Justice League. With Joss Whedon’s influence on display, this certainly seems brighter and more exciting than we could have hoped for. Take a look and let us know what you think.

If you haven’t heard of The Houses October Built, that’s ok. This cult horror film from 2014 has been totally under the radar for a lot of us, including myself. However, earlier this week I was sent the trailer for the forthcoming sequel, due in theatres and VOD September 20th. My interest was peaked with the description, which I share with you here:
Recovering from the trauma of being kidnapped last Halloween by the Blue Skeleton – a group who take “extreme haunt” to another level – five friends decide they must face their fears in order to move on. Heading back out on the road to visit more haunted house attractions, signs of the Blue Skeleton start appearing again and a new terror begins…
Sounds good, right? I wound up watching the original film the same day and was absolutely thrilled with what I saw.
Though The Houses October Built is working in the often tired found footage genre, director/co-writer/co-star Bobby Roe and co-writer/co-star Zack Andrews really came up with an interesting story of friends in search of the scariest, most extreme haunted houses out there. I’m a complete wuss when it comes to going through them, and this film made me feel the terror and tension in my own living room. Roe manages to blur the line between documentary and fiction, and that comes in no small part from the believable performances from this strong group of actors, including Mickey Roe, Jeff Larson and Brandy Schaeffer. The Houses That October Built is as much a celebration of the work that goes into crafting a good haunted house as it is a thriller. I felt the film brought something new to the found footage genere, and I can’t recommend it any higher.
On that note, here’s the trailer for The Houses October Built 2, which picks up where the first one left off. I’m sure how much I can say about it in advance of its release, except to confirm that it is as fun and enjoyable and tense as the original.
Another trailer for Blade Runner 2049 just arrived, this one heavy on the action. Take a look, and let us know how hard it’s going to be to wait until October 6th to see this film on the big screen.
Will an adaptation of a cult favourite series from one of the most popular writers on the planet be able to stave off fan skepticism and critical blows to debut at the top of the box office? Here’s our prediction:
Let’s just get this out of the way: I loved The Dark Tower books. I’m a massive Stephen King fan. I am predisposed to enjoy the film that arrives in theaters this weekend, regardless of its quality. But, realistically, this is a hard road for The Dark Tower, based on the scathing reviews its receiving and a fan base that feels let down by many of the decisions that surrounded bringing Roland and the Man in Black to life. There was so much working against this film prior to the horrible reviews, and it appears so many fears are actually being realized. Regardless of how good or bad the performances from stars Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey are, neither actor can open a film, let alone one that was supposed to be the beginnings of a brand new franchise. While there are die-hard fans of The Dark Tower who will venture out this weekend to see the film, reviews be damned, the crossover appeal is going to be limited, and unless there’s a severe difference between critical and audience response a la Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Dark Tower is going to underperform below even the initial light projections. Look for a first place debut with $26 million.
It’s pretty rare that a trailer leaves me with my mouth wide open.
The trailer for Eli Roth’s remake of Death Wish, starring Bruce Willis is one such trailer.
Check it out and let us know if you’ll be seeing this one when it arrives in November.
There are a lot of emotions heading into the weekend, and when they’re unleashed? Well, they could be atomic. What movie will win the hearts of audiences? Here’s our prediction:
While on paper The Emoji Movie, a film based on emojis sounds like an absolutely horrible idea, that hasn’t stopped Sony Pictures from releasing a film based on them. Unfortunately for parents, what will be a must see film for kids this weekend is currently sitting at 0% at Rotten Tomatoes. Yes, Z-E-R-O. Good luck sitting through this one, folks. I’ll feel for everyone who helps make The Emoji Movie number one at the box office. Look for it to debut there with $32 million.
