“The New Mutants” Update

I am ever hopeful that we’ll actually get to see some new movies in an actual theater this fall. One of the first ones out of the gate will be 20th Century Studios’ oft-delayed The New Mutants which is currently scheduled to open in theaters on August 28 (COVID-19 permitting).

Josh Boone, the film’s director, and the film’s main stars did a presentation at last week’s Comic-Con@Home event which is available to view on YouTube.

Check out this cool new poster for the film, too.

We got a bit of a sneak peek of Soul at the 2019 D23 Expo last summer and it looks innovative, introspective, entertaining, and just overall terrific. Can’t wait to see this film.

Soul opens in theaters on June 19, 2020.

Here’s the final poster.

And I’m not sure if I ever posted this awesome poster released at the 2019 D23 Expo…love this.

Cool Posters for “Terminator: Dark Fate”

Yes, we’re really getting another Terminator movie…it’s the sixth Terminator feature film and it’s called Terminator: Dark Fate.

I think the original film The Terminator (1984) is one of the greatest sci-fi films ever, but I haven’t liked a Terminator movie since Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). The films have been a mess as well as showing a complete disregard for any sort of comprehensible interrelationship with the other films in the series (although my friend Yacov makes a compelling argument for the films’ lack of continuity in a cool video essay that you should definitely watch).

Now, we’re getting yet another film, although this one has the blessing of James Cameron, the director of the first two Terminator films, and marks the return of actress Linda Hamilton to the series. So, let’s hope for the best!

Terminator: Dark Fate opens in theaters on November 1.

Poster and Trailer for Disney’s “Jungle Cruise”

Instead of an animated remake next summer, Disney is giving us a movie based on one of their theme park rides. Check out the new trailer and poster for Disney’s Jungle Cruise.

While films based on Disney theme park attractions have been somewhat hit or miss (Eddie Murphy’s horrible Haunted Mansion movie and that weird Country Bears film come to mind, not to mention how the Pirates of the Caribbean films overstayed their welcome), this one looks like it could be a lot of fun. Let’s hope so!

Jungle Cruise opens in theaters July 24, 2020.
