It’s Tuesday, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens is only three days away! Is everyone freaking out yet?!
Today’s Movie Morsels is mercifully Star Wars free, but we do have the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond, a breakdown of the Independence Day: Resurgence trailer, and the new international trailer for Captain America: Civil War!
Additionally, Ryan Reynolds gets us ready for the 12 Days of Deadpool, Jennifer Lawrence opens up about Mystique’s physical appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse, and the Mad Max: Fury Road producers tease a potential black and white re-release in 2016!
Movie Morsels starts now!
Captain America: Civil War
It’s barely been two weeks since the first full trailer for Captain America: Civil War debuted, and now we’ve got another one! The new international trailer for Captain America: Civil War doesn’t have a lot in the way of new footage, but it’s an exciting peek at what’s coming up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain America: Civil War will be released on May 6, 2016.
Independence Day: Resurgence
The invaders are back, and this time it’s personal! In ID4, humanity barely escaped extinction at the hands of an alien race. Over the course of two decades, mankind has rebuilt its largest cities, and remade its military with unparalleled access to the alien technology left behind by the invaders. But it still may not be enough when the aliens head to Earth for some payback.
Nerdist News’ Jessica Chobot has welcomed back the alien overlords in our breakdown of the Independence Day: Resurgence trailer that debuted over the weekend. There’s even a guide to trailer’s Easter eggs!
Independence Day: Resurgence will invade movie theaters on June 24, 2016.
Mad Max: Fury Road
You may have witnessed the fact that Mad Max: Fury Road is topping several critics’ lists of the best movie of the year. Yeah, it’s really that good. And while it might be a some time before another Mad Max movie rolls into theaters, word has emerged that director George Miller’s vision of a black and white version of Mad Max: Fury Road could hit theaters in 2016.
Keep in mind, the operative word is “could.” This isn’t official yet, but Mad Max producer Doug Mitchell has confirmed that the black and white studio edition of Fury Road does exist. And Miller couldn’t help teasing that “We ended up unconsciously creating two other [Mad Max] screenplays. A second trilogy could happen, if I’m willing to go back into the Wasteland.”
Believe it or not, we’re only about two months away from the release of Deadpool. And there’s a new Deadpool trailer dropping on Christmas day! But Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth won’t be satisfied with just a trailer. Instead, we’re gonna get the 12 Days of Deadpool!
Deadpool will be out in theaters on February 12, 2016.
You may have noticed that Mystique was looking particularly human in the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer that dropped last week. That’s not a coincidence. Jennifer Lawrence has made no secret about the fact that she finds the Mystique full body makeup to be very uncomfortable. But that doesn’t mean she won’t go full Mystique again!
“I am blue in it, a little bit,” said Lawrence during an interview with CinemaBlend. “I put my foot down as much as I could. [But] they were very, very nice to me.”
X-Men: Apocalypse will be released on May 27, 2016.
Star Trek Beyond
The new trailer for Star Trek Beyond is here, and it’s looking faster and more furious than ever before. That’s probably due to the influence of director Justin Lin, who made his name on the Fast and Furious franchise. But could anyone have predicted a Star Trek movie with motorcycle stunts or a Star Trek trailer set to the Beastie Boys?!
Star Trek Beyond will beam down into theaters on July 22, 2016.
