Attack on Titan reveals trailer for season three

Eren’s toughest enemy may not be a towering Titan after all. It may be one of his own. Funimation studios recently released the first trailer for the upcoming third season of Attack on Titan. The preview features a quick shot of the new villain facing Levi, captain of the Special Operations Squad. Levi goes toe to toe with the shadowy figure before calling out the enemy’s name: Kenny.

Those who read the manga will recognize Kenny the Ripper as one of the darkest, most personal antagonists in the series so far. Now, he’s preparing to make his debut in the anime adaptation. Check out the trailer for yourself and tell us what you think.

Attack on Titan season 3 will be available from streaming on FunimationNow at the same time it airs in Japan. The new season will premiere on the Japanese network NHK July 22.

Ant-Man and the Wasp gets exciting new trailer

Hopefully, you’re ready for another Marvel movie after seeing Infinity War. Marvel Studios dropped a new trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp last week. We get to see Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and his new partner Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lily) in action. The trailer doesn’t give away too much, but it does give us a glimpse at the villainous Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) along with Walton Goggin’s character.

If you’re looking for some follow up on Avengers: Infinity War, you won’t find here. Ant-Man and the Wasp is set before the Avengers’ big fight with Thanos. Before Infinity War, Scott went home to be his family instead of joining Captain America’s team to fight the ultimate baddie. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.

Ant-Man and the Wasp arrives in theaters July 6.

There’s yet another Stephen King adaptation around the corner, but if the trailer is anything to go by, it actually looks promising. The new trailer for the J.J. Abrams anthology series, Castle Rock, shows a mysterious “original sin” plaguing the fictional Maine town. From there we get a montage of creepy images: a man holding a gun to his head, crawling alligators, and Sissy Spacek of Carrie fame hiding in the shower holding a knife. It may not give us many details about the show, but it’s got us spooked.

The first three episodes of Castle Rock’s premiere season airs on Hulu July 25. The series stars Bill Skarsgard, Andre Holland, Melanie Lynskey, Jane Levy, and Scott Glenn. And speaking of Stephen King…
