Sicario director Denis Villeneuve may be hard at work at the Blade Runner sequel, but the award-winning French-Canadian has another sci-fi adventure to tide fans over ahead of the October 6, 2017 release for the Harrison Ford- and Ryan Gosling-led film: Arrival. Now, hot on the heels of last week’s TV spot, comes the first full-length trailers for Villeneuve’s extraterrestrial drama.
Starring Amy Adams as a language expert and Jeremy Renner as a mathematician, Arrival sees a team of scholars investigating a mysterious vessel’s unexpected appearance on Earth. As the latest trailers reveal, the vessel ends up being just one of a dozen that end up being stationed around the world while Adams and co. attempt to make contact with the extraterrestrial lifeforms in hopes of avoiding the alien crisis of an impending global war.
Arrival will premiere at the Venice Film Festival next month before hitting theaters November 11.

AMC finally delivered on months of agonizing speculation Friday, dropping the first trailer for The Walking Dead‘s seventh season. The Dead team invaded San Diego Comic-Con, with Jeffrey Dean Morgan even bringing along his character Negan’s trusty companion Lucille, a.k.a. that bat laden with death.
The fresh trailer kicks off with an emotional look back at who exactly Negan’s bat victim may have been, though the retrospective strategically ends before actuallyproviding anything resembling an answer. But the AMC gods know better than to leave Dead fans empty-handed. Here we get our first look at King Ezekiel, played by Khary Payton.
“It was a pretty traumatic and intense and weird two nights,” star Andrew Lincoln told Variety after that (spoiler alert!) death-centered finale aired in April. “It’s an astonishing scene and I thought Jeffrey Dean Morgan was just magnificent and magnetic in it. But also it was the first time I had felt a sense of unity and focus and intensity from everybody. All around the camera and also from the entire cast. I hadn’t felt like that since Season 1.”
Ahead of the presumably heartbreaking premiere, Deadline reports that AMC will be debuting a behind-the-scenes featurette centered on the making of Dead‘s seventh season Aug. 14. Additionally, AMC is hoping to get all the aloof lames caught up on the entire series with a two-hour recap special Oct. 16.
The Walking Dead returns to AMC Oct. 23.

Xander Cage is back!
Vin Diesel-starring xXx is on to its third installment bringing back Diesel, and his character Xander Cage, into the fold for xXx: Return of Xander Cage.
“You know they say the world is safer than it’s ever been in the history of civilization,” National Security Agency (NSA) agent Augustus Eugene Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson) says at the start of the trailer disagreeing with the statement. Gibbons proves to be right considering Cage and his brand of expertise in the extreme gets called back to work for the NSA.
Cage, thought to be dead as mentioned in the second xXx film State of the Union(the one with Ice Cube), makes his first appearance in the trailer by literally dropping in from a tower and skiing through the jungle. Yes, the jungle. It’s not the only death defying stunt Cage does in the action-packed trailer filled with explosions and a whole new cast of allies for Cage. He’s seen longboarding on the side of a moving car and riding a dirtbike across the ocean.
“We need someone who can walk into a tornado and come out the other side like it was a damn gentle breeze,” Toni Colette’s character, another newcomer to the franchise, says. That’s Cage.
xXx: The Return of Xander Cage will also star Nina Dobrev and Ruby Rose and will premiere Jan. 20, 2017.

With DC’s Suicide Squad due out in just under a month, fans are probably itching to see more of the core cast members (and by that I mean the ones most likely to survive) in action. In the movie’s latest international trailer, we’re given a few more good looks at the Joker (Jared Leto) being his deranged self. As Entertainment Weekly recently revealed, he has his sights set on Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and wants her back, never mind the mission she and her other squad mates are on. Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th.

On April 20, 2010, one of the world’s largest man-made disasters occurred on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 people. This new film “honors the brave men and women whose heroism saved many onboard.”
Directed by Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg, Deepwater Horizon shows what happened when the drilling rig exploded, resulting in the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. Wahlberg plays Mike Williams, a worker aboard the rig who has a wife and small child waiting at home as he attempts to escape.
The film will undoubtedly feature many emotional moments and action-packed scenes, but its focus on people saving each other rather than the controversial issue of drilling in the gulf and the environmental damage done by spewing millions of gallons of oil in the ocean is perhaps questionable.
Watch the trailer above, and catch the film when it hits cinemas on September 30.

Disney has released the first teaser trailer for the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. The 90-second trailer focuses primarily on the deterioration of Beast’s castle, but also gives a brief glimpse of Belle(Emma Watson). The film will be released on March 17, 2017 and also stars Dan Stevens as Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Lefou, and Kevin Kline as Belle’s father Maurice.
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award® winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Ben Affleck is following up his debut as the Caped Crusader jumping into the role of another tortured soul in The Accountant:
“Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.”
The Accountant opens October 14.

“Whoever you are, where ever you go, someone wants to murder you.”
Those cheery words from Tyrion Lannister kick off the last season six trailer for Game of Thrones, which finally debuts this Sunday on HBO. Fans of the show who have picked through all the previous trailers won’t notice any new major revelations about the stories we’re about to see, but there are just enough new snippets of footage to increase our excitement for the show’s return.
Ellaria Sand looking like she’s about to get what’s coming to her for killing Princess Myrcella. Seriously, Myrcella was about to marry Trystane Martell, and considering Tommen’s chances of surviving season six, the Dornish were pretty damn close to suddenly being on the Iron Throne. I expect a fitting punishment that will make everything we suffered through during the previous season in Dorne worthwhile.
Game of Thrones season six debuts Sunday, April 24 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.

Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter reprise their roles as the Mad Hatter, Alice and the Red Queen in upcoming film Alice Through the Looking Glass, which comes based off of Lewis Carroll’s twisted children’s tale of the same name. Alice wakes up to find herself in a mental asylum and runs away, only to accidentally stumble back into the whimsical world of Wonderland where the evil villain Time (played by Sacha Baron Cohen) is causing temporal chaos, threatening the Mad Hatter’s life. Anne Hathaway also joins the cast as the White Queen, while the late Alan Rickman will be featured as the voice of Absolem the Caterpillar.
With new director James Bobin at the helm and Tim Burton on board as producer, the film should be a slight departure from the previous Burton-directed Alice in Wonderland from 2010. Watch the new trailer above and catch the first one here. Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27.
