Comic-Con Trailers 2018

As usual, Comic-Con has seen the release of a slew of new sci-fi, fantasy, and superhero movie trailers! Here’s some of what I think are the best of the best. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald From the Harry Potter prequel series… Alita: Battle Angel The American cinematic treatment of...

Mortal Engines Full Trailer

Take a look at the full trailer for “Mortal Engines.” The movie is based on the book by Philip Reeve and is directed by Peter Jackson, who directed “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.” I really hope the movie is as great as the trailer seems to suggest, and this...

“Bad Lip Reading” Star Wars Video

And now for something completely hysterical, I give you this “Bad Lip Reading” Star Wars video. Grand Moff Tarkin has never been funnier! (Really, though, it’s not a moon…)
