The “Terminator” franchise has been famous for its constantly evolving timeline, which is perfect because, at least initially, it was a series about the repercussions of time travel, the nature of destiny and fate and how a simple action could have catastrophic consequences decades down the line. But with the newest entry in the franchise, ” Terminator Genisys ,” things just seem to be getting unnecessarily confusing. A lot of this new trailer has been covered in the previous clips: it’s the familiar “Terminator” story of Kyle Reese (now played by Jai Courtney ), traveling back in time to protect and impregnate Sarah Connor ( Emilia Clarke ), who goes on to father John Connor ( Jason Clarke ), the leader of the anti-robot human resistance in the distance, blue-y future. Of course, things are different this time around: when Reese gets back to the past, he’s met with his mother who isn’t a meek waitress at a diner but instead a hard-ass warrior. It seems that a kindly Terminator ( Arnold Schwarzenegger , yet again) went back even further in time and trained young Sarah

As far as Marvel movies go, there hasn’t been a question mark as big as the one attached to their forthcoming action comedy ” Ant-Man ” since, well, ever. Even ” Guardians of the Galaxy ,” with its roster of unknown characters and tonally daring mixture of comedy and drama, had the space adventure angle to hook people and a cast of likeable and well-known actors. “Ant-Man,” on the other hand, is full of unquantifiable elements and comes complete with a troubled production history that has potentially soured would-be enthusiasts. But if this new trailer is any indication, hope is not lost. “Ant-Man” could be really, really entertaining
The first trailer for the third season of ” Orange Is the New Black ” is finally here, and just like the series’s new tagline, we’re #sorrynotsorry to say that we absolutely love it. In the clip, we see Big Boo get a makeover, Red dish out some harsh truths, Crazy Eyes explain that her version of love includes a six-person orgy (with an alien), and Alex — dubbed “the Bettie Page of Litchfield” — make her not-so-triumphant return to the prison. As one inmate explains, “It’s a whole new world around here,” and that includes new arrivals, too. Among them are Lori Petty (who made a memorable cameo in the season two premiere) and the much-hyped addition of Ruby Rose, who catches Piper’s eye.
Michael Keaton hosted ” Saturday Night Live ” this weekend, and while he was there ostensibly to promote his Oscar-nominated role in the Best Picture winner “Birdman,” the actor was instead bombarded by requests from the cast the reprise two of his most iconic roles: Batman and Beetlejuice . During his monologue, Keaton was interrupted by Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan , who begged the actor to “play ‘Batman’ with us” and “play ‘Beetlejuice’ with us,” citing their childhood love of those two ’80s classics. The castmates broke into song to explain how much they idolized Keaton, and those movies in particular, as Keaton stammered and became more and more uncomfortable. Things escalate until Killam and Moynihan decide to just act out scenes from “Batman” and “Beetlejuice” themselves, hilariously dressing up as characters from each film (Killam as Catherine O’Hara in “Beetlejuice” was especially inspired) and editing Keaton into the clips.

Starz has released the first teaser for its upcoming ” Evil Dead ” sequel series , “Ash vs Evil Dead,” and while it’s short on plot, it’s enough to get fans’ chainsaws revving in excitement. The brief clip is really meant to tout the reunion of the franchise’s original masterminds, made up of creator/director Sam Raimi , producer Rob Tapert, and star Bruce Campbell , who are all producing the series. It also features the show’s logo — a callback to the original ” Evil Dead ” poster — and yes, Campbell’s character’s infamous chainsaw arm. The official synopsis, per Starz’s press release : Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons -personal and literal
Is there ever a polite way to tell a creepy high school acquaintance that you never want to see him again? According to “The Gift,” the answer is no — and also, that acquaintance is probably far creepier than you ever imagined. The thriller centers around married couple Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall), who randomly run into Simon’s former classmate, Gordo (Joel Edgerton), and are soon barraged by expensive gifts left on their doorstep and multiple unannounced visits — seemingly all while Robyn is home alone. Simon tries to sever the rekindled friendship, but unfortunately for him and Robyn, Gordo isn’t going away without a fight (and kills their fish and throws a brick through their window, for good measure). You know someone’s in trouble in a movie when they actually say out loud, “I’m very happy,” so obviously that means Simon is doomed
The upcoming drama “Straight Outta Compton” chronicles the highs and lows of the seminal West Coast rap group N.W.A., from their troubled beginnings to their incredible fame and growing notoriety. Newcomer O’Shea Jackson Jr. plays his real-life dad Ice Cube, alongside Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell as Dr. Dre and Eazy-E
A new, bats–t insane trailer for ” Mad Max: Fury Road ” is here, and like the flick’s other teasers before it, it’s full of explosions, car chases, and creepy dudes in masks and chains — all seasoned with an apocalyptic flavor. This time around, the clip focuses more on the villains, led by Immortan Joe ( Hugh Keays-Byrne ), who straps on a horrifying teeth-filled mask as he makes odd proclamations before screaming masses. He’s also consumed by the need to recapture a group of comely lasses who have escaped his clutches. Leading the charge against him are Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy , with the latter explaining what’s driving him to fight back
Disney’s recent trend of turning its animated classics into live-action flicks took a dark turn on ” Saturday Night Live ” this weekend, with the show re-imagining forest fable ” Bambi ” as a kickass action movie starring Dwayne Johnson and his ” Furious 7 ” castmates. Johnson, who hosted “SNL” for the fourth time, starred as the titular baby deer, whose image was remade as a cigar-chomping vigilante with an axe to grind against the hunters who murdered his mother. Johnson sports giant ears, wispy hair, and a painted nose to bring the character to life — and a whole lot of guns. But the true star of the sketch may be Taran Killam, who plays Vin Diesel as Thumper in a demented, mumble-tastic performance that’s eerily similar to the real actor’s stilted delivery. His cockeyed ears help complete the hilarious look
It’s easy to be a tough guy when you’re up against an eager drumming student, J.K. Simmons, but when a Terminator gets thrown your way, well, it’s a different story altogether! Yup, Mr. “Whiplash” himself is looking awfully nervous in this trailer for “Terminator: Genisys,” and honestly, who could blame him? It’s still not particularly clear what’s happening, but here are a few things we know for sure
Jake Gyllenhaal has been hitting the gym for his starring role in ” Southpaw. ” Antoine Fuqua (“The Equalizer,” “Olympus Has Fallen,” “Training Day”) directs this gritty flick about a champion boxer named Billy Hope who kicks butt in the ring… and out of the ring too. As you can see in this trailer, Billy’s bad temper has dire consequences, and one dumb outburst turns his world upside down.
