Happy Friday, folks! (Or, for those of you who are joining me in Los Angeles today, Happy WonderCon!) Before you head home or head out for the weekend, we’ve got a few choice pieces for your viewing pleasure, starting with a brand-new trailer for Captain America: Civil War! Plus, the latest from X-Men: Apocalypse, The Jungle Book, and more!
Captain America: Civil War
A new international trailer for Captain America: Civil War has landed online. And though it’s very similar to the film’s last “Underoos” domestic trailer, it differs in one key respect: offering us more of the Black Widow and Hawkeye pitted against each other in hand-to-hand combat!

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Director Luc Besson has just unveiled via Facebook the first-ever photo from his upcoming comic book adaptation Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. It must be said that stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne look quite at home in their roles as the French sci-fi saga’s intergalactic adventurers. Fingers crossed Besson can conjure up another Fifth Element as he once more brings his over-the-top approach to the genre…
Neighbors 2: Sorority Uprising
And last but by no means least today, we have the new poster for Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Neighbors 2: Sorority Uprising.

See you next week, Morselers!
