It was the 2010 rescue mission that captivated the world when 33 Chilean workers became trapped in a mine for 69 days. And the story hits the big screen this year with Antonio Banderas transforming into one of the miners, to portray their struggle to survive 200 storeys beneath the earth’s surface. In the first trailer for suspense-filled The 33, the 54-year-old star can be seen covered in sweat and dirt as he delivers the line: “That’s not a rock, that’s the heart of the mountain. She finally broke.”
An American Ambassador is killed during an attack at a U.S. compound in Libya as a security team struggles to make sense out of the chaos.

One of the most appreciated revivals in the horror genre has been the full-on return to aesthetics of the ‘80s. With imaginative filmmakers exploring their low budget surroundings with an innate understanding of what made those cheap chillers in the ‘80s so enjoyable, seeing the aesthetics of that specific era again always warms a genre fans heart. And luckily, fans might be getting another dose of that ‘80s insanity with Ian Kessner’s LOST AFTER DARK, hitting your screens September 1st!
Sleeper agents are terrifying when they’re enemy forces, but we love making heroes out of the home-grown version. But what about when the sleeper agent is a stoner working at a convenience store? In American Ultra, Jesse Eisenberg is that guy, and when he’s “activated” via a code phrase he finds himself killing strangers with spoons and freaking out his girlfriend, played by Kristen Stewart. But at least, as this new American Ultra trailer shows, all the violence also gives them the opportunity to enjoy a romantic bit of couples tazing.

We’ve known about the stunt for over a year, as paparazzi photos and video captured the shoot. The scene plays heavily in marketing for the film, with posters and trailers showing wind-battered Cruise strapped to the plane’s door. And yet it is still rad to hear him talk about being terrified of doing the shot, because it’s great to know that even megastars who can buck the standard Hollywood insurance policy get scared before doing something insane. And even with multiple safety straps and a great rigging and stunt team, this is still bonkers.
Warner Bros has changed course and just released a pristine version of the sizzle reel for Suicide Squad shown during the studio’s Hall H presentation at Comic Con. Someone in the crowd recorded footage that was meant solely for show attendees and posted a lousy-quality version online. Yesterday, Sue Kroll, the studio’s President of Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution, said that the leak was a breach of trust the studio enjoyed with the Comic-Con faithful, but because the film is still in production, the studio wouldn’t release a better version. Likely after seeing the lousy pirated version gain viral traction, Kroll has changed her mind.
The much-anticipated trailer for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” bowed at Comic-Con during Warner Bros.’ panel in Hall H this weekend.

Even better, the Force Awakens Comic Con reel is online, and you can watch it here right now.
