See the debut trailer for ‘Suspiria’ remake

The first trailer for the remake of the 1977 Italian horror classic Suspiria debuted last week and it’s full of spine chilling terror. The clip shows Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) a young American dancer arriving at an elite dance academy in Berlin run by Madame Blanc (Tilda Swinton). Things start getting weird and when dancers begin disappearing, the secrets behind the academy start to unfold.

Fans of the Dario Argento original will notice the lack of vibrant colors in the remake, which made Argento’s film stand out and helped redefined Italian horror films. Also, the music is noticeably different. Progressive rock band Goblin scored the original while Radiohead’s Tom Yorke handles music this time around. Still, he captures an uneasiness and tension that heightens the terror of the film.

Directed by Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name), Suspiria stars Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia Goth, and star of the original film Jessica Harper. It opens in theaters November 2.

Wlydstyle and Emmet team up again in ‘Lego Movie 2’ trailer

Everything’s not so awesome for Wlydstyle and Emmett in the debut trailer for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. Remember the DUPLO invaders who made a brief appearance at the end of the first movie? Turns out their invasion has led to a Mad Max post-apocalyptic world. The trailer doesn’t reveal too much, but we do get some great jokes, kick ass music, and stunning visuals.

We do get a glimpse at the new character Sweet Mayhem (Stephanie Beatriz) who comes to Bricksburg bumping Beastie Boys in search of a fierce leader. She comes across Wyldstyle, Unkitty (Alison Brie), Batman (Will Arnett) and Metal Beard (Nick Offerman) and takes them back to her home galaxy, Sistar Systems. Now, Emmett and his pal Planty have to save the Master Builders from this strange invader.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part opens in theaters February 2019. In addition to the returning cast, new actors joining the film include Tiffany Haddish as Queen Whatevra Wanabi and Arturo Castro (Broad City) as Ice Cream Cone.

Watch the trailer for ‘Transformers’ spin-off film ‘Bumblebee’

Sorry, the Transformers films aren’t over yet. Last week, Paramount Pictures revealed the teaser trailer for Bumblebee, the first spinoff of their Transformers franchise. Directed by Travis Knight (Kubo And the Two Strings), the movie is set in 1987 where Bumblebee lives in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Haliee Steinfeld) finds the bot as a broken down car. When she revives him she learns he’s more than a VW bug.

Speaking about the film at CinemeaCon back in April Knight said “I wanted to return to the essences of what made the Transformers franchise so impactful right from the beginning: character, emotion, spectacle and explosions, lots and lots of explosions.”

The film also stars Jorge Lendeborg Jr, John Ortiz, Jason Drucker, Pamela Adlon, and Stephen Schneider. Bumblebee opens in theaters December 21.

Jared Leto gets his own stand-alone Joker film

Jared Leto will play the Joker once again in the new standalone film about the Batman villain. According to Variety, Leto will not only star in the movie, he will also serve as executive producer.

Leto’s Joker movie is set in the DC Extended Universe, which includes Suicide Squad, Wonder Woman, Justice League, and the upcoming Aquaman film.

Michael Myers is back in the first trailer for ‘Halloween’

Everyone’s favorite boogie man, Michael Myers, is back and this time Laurie Strode is ready for him. Blumhouse Productions released the trailer for the upcoming Halloween movie last week and it looks like the sequel fans have been waiting for. The clip opens with a backstory about “The Shape” murdering three teenagers on Halloween in 1978, being shot by his own psychiatrist, and how he was sent to a psychiatric hospital for four decades.

Meanwhile, Laurie Strode has been preparing for his return setting up her house with secret rooms and a shooting range waiting for her showdown with Michael. She finally gets her chance when a bus carrying psych ward patients crashes and Michael escapes. Will she finally defeat Michael?

Directed by Gordon Green and executive produced by John Carpenter, the reboot ignores all the sequels and is a direct sequel to the original movie instead. The movie also retcons the revelation that Laurie and Michael are siblings.

Halloween opens in theaters October 19 and stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak.
