Here’s the first official trailer for Johnny Depp’s new movie City Of Lies, co-starring Forest Whitaker and directed by Brad Furman, (The Lincoln Lawyer).
The movie is based on the Pulitzer nominated novel LAbyrinth by Randall Sullivan which examined the details surrounding the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G and the possible involvement of the Los Angeles police department in their deaths.
The trailer, like most these days, gives away a large portion of the plot which rattles along like so:
Former LAPD detective, Russell Poole joins forces with journalist Jack Jackson nearly two decades after the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. to find out the truth.
Many documentaries have been made theorising what happened and who was ultimately responsible for the deaths of these two young artists, but City Of Lies apparently only deals with the the case work of Poole. A man who unearthed a load of details and information about an alleged conspiracy involving the LAPD.
City Of Lies is scheduled for release on September 7th.

When two enemies conspire to bring down the kingdom, T’Challa must team up, as the Black Panther, with C.I.A. agent Everett K. Ross and members of the Dora Milaje—Wakanda’s special forces—to prevent a world war
The Black Panter is scheduled for general release on February 16th, 2018.
Here’s the first original trailer released this week at San Diego’s Comic Con, for Guy Ritchie’s new movie King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword starring Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Eric Bana, Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey and David Beckham…yes, David Beckham.
The plot rattles along like so:
The young Arthur runs the back passages of Londinium with his crew, not knowing his royal lineage until he grabs Excalibur. Instantly confronted by the sword’s influence, Arthur is forced to make up his mind. Throwing in with the Resistance and an enigmatic young woman named Guinevere, he must learn to master the sword, face down his demons and unite the people to defeat the tyrant Vortigern — who murdered his parents and stole his crown — and become king.
From the trailer it looks like like Ritchie should’ve named it Lock, Stock & One Smoking Sword.
King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword is set for a March 24th, 2017 release.
We’ve been waiting on the first trailer to Seth Rogen’s adult animated movie Sausage Party for quite some time. The initial buzz around the R-rated film is highly positive with many early reports indicating that the film is outrageous and debauched. Just how we like it.

The film tells the story of one sausage setting out on a quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, our hero sausage and his new friends embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the Fourth of July sale.
Sausage Party is scheduled for general release on August 12th,
Here’s the second eye melting trailer for the first person movie Hardcore Henry, starring Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky and Tim Roth.

Hardcore Henry is a first-person perspective action film, in which the audience sees everything through the eyes of Henry, who’s resurrected from the brink of death as a cybernetic super soldier that remembers nothing about his past. He is trying to save his wife Estelle, who has been kidnapped by Akan, a powerful warlord with a plan for bio-engineering soldiers. In the unfamiliar city of Moscow, Henry tries to avoid being killed while discovering the truth behind his identity.
Hardcore Henry is scheduled for general release on April 8th.
So this is really fucking awkward.
In a month when high profile black actors and actresses rightly boycott the Oscars in protest over Hollywood’s lack of diversity, a white European actor has now been cast to play the role of one of the most famous Black American singers in history.
Apparently Joseph Fiennes has been cast as Michael Jackson in a British film about an alleged road trip he took with Marlon Brando, and Elizabeth Taylor directly after 9/11. The story goes the trio wanted to get out of New York so they hired a car and drove to Ohio.
Really? What’s next? Stephen Fry cast as Little Richard? Hugh Laurie to play Nat King Cole? The only way this production can redeem itself in the diversity stakes will be if Caitlyn Jenner plays Elizabeth Taylor and Morgan Freeman is cast as Brando.
