As March comes to a close, we've been gifted numerous trailers for even more awesome mega-budget Hollywood blockbusters, as well as the new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000! Killer clowns, a plethora of alien worlds, everyone's favorite friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, angry apes, and the Satellite of Love await those of you that are brave enough to scroll onward!
TRAILER #1: IT
Release Date: September 8, 2017
A group of kids band together to protect themselves from a supernatural threat that is lurking beneath the streets of Derry, Maine. Based on the beloved Stephen King novel, IT promises to be one of the scariest films to hit multiplexes in some time! Check out the trailer below to see if it raises any hackles on the back of your neck!
TRAILER #2: MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 - SEASON 11
Release Date: April 14, 2017 (Exclusively on NetFlix!)
When I heard that MST3K was coming back, I was dubious.... until the Kickstarter page showed up! Millions of fan dollars later, the show has been brought back to life thanks to the efforts of Shout! Factory, NetFlix, legions of MSTies, and original creator Joel Hodgson! Season 11 features an all new cast, many new characters, and fourteen films never before riffed on, including REPTILICUS! I cannot WAIT to experience this new incarnation of my favorite show in a few weeks. Get excited with me by watching the trailer fellow MST3K fans!
TRAILER #3: SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING
Release Date: July 6, 2017
After Sony failed to really build any good will with fans after the dismal THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2, they began (smartly) working with Marvel Studios! In this newest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise (which thankfully avoids retelling his tired origin story), Peter attempts to take on some major baddies to prove that he's an Avengers-caliber hero! This new Spidey adventure features Michael Keaton as "The Vulture" and Robert Downey Jr's as Iron Man! Here's hoping that the Sony/Marvel team-up turned out to be a match made in superhero heaven!
TRAILER #4: VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS
Release Date: July 21, 2017
I must admit that I am not a huge fan of Luc Besson (I actually kind of hate THE FIFTH ELEMENT). That being said, I'm actually pretty excited for VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS! An evil force tries to end centuries of peace between thousands of intergalactic races, and only two heroes are up to the task! I think this looks pretty darned cool, and will definitely be giving it a shot when it hits the big screen in late July!
TRAILER #5: WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES
Release Date: July 14, 2017
I very much enjoyed the two films leading up to WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES, so I expect big things from director Matt Reeves. This third (and final?) entry into the new APES franchise pits a highly trained human army against Caesar and his people. The apes want peace, but evil Woody Harrelson will have none of that, forcing the mighty leader of the intelligent apes to carry out a quest for revenge! This looks pretty damned awesome Vault Dwellers, and I am more than ready to throw down some coin to see it!
That's all I've got for you tonight gang, but be sure to check back soon for more trailers, Blu-ray news, and more at The B-Movie News Vault!
