Who wants another peek at the set of next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse? Or a word on which characters could make their big-screen debut in the next Transformers movie?

Trailers for Carey Mulligan’s Suffragette and Robert Zemeckis’ 3D high-wire act The Walk? Good news folks. We’ve got all of this for you in today’s Movie Morsels!
Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!
“Oh Hell No!” indeed… Syfy releases director Anthony Ferrante’s Sharknado 3 (and presumably the hell it promises) on Wednesday, July 22nd at 9/8c. This time around, the titular toothsome critters will demolish all in their way from D.C. to Florida, again challenging stars Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, along with co-stars Cassie Scerbo, David Hasselhoff, Bo Derek, Ryan Newman, Claudia Shepard, and Jack Griffo. Expect the usual plethora of celebrity cameos. Here’s the film’s very first promo spot…
Akiva Goldsman, who heads Paramount’s new Transformers writers room (which has just added another two names in Blackhawk Down screenwriter Ken Nolan and Geneva Robertson-Dworet), has mentioned Beast Wars as one potential subject for the next Autobot epic…
“We’ve got a work space that is beautifully production designed to be immersive with a strong sense of the franchise history,” says Goldsman. “We will look at the toys, the TV shows, the merchandise, everything that has been generated by Hasbro, from popular to forgotten iterations, and establish a mythological time line. It has been designed with a lot of visual help, toys, robots, sketches and writers and artists. After that super saturation, the writers will figure out not one, but numerous films that will extend the universe… If one of the writers discovers an affinity for ‘Beast Wars,’ they can drive forward on treatments that will have been fleshed out by the whole room.”
Your bro, my bro, everyone’s bro…Cerebro! Professor Charles Xavier’s famed mutant-locating device is featured in the newest set photo from Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse. Out on May 16, 2016, the film’s cast is as epic as that of the first two movies in this latest X-Men trilogy, featuring returning stars Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Evan Peters, and Lucas Till, as well as newbies Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, Ben Hardy, Tye Sheridan, Olivia Munn, Lana Condor, and Oscar Isaac.
Ever wonder what it took to get women their right to fight vote? Director Sarah Gavron’s Suffragette examines that very question as it applied to early twentieth century England. Carey Mulligan leads a wildly impressive cast that includes Helena Bonham Carter, Brendan Gleeson, Anne-Marie Duff, Ben Whishaw, Romola Garai, Natalie Press, and Meryl Streep. The film bows on October 23rd. Here’s the brand-new trailer for Suffragette…
Just a few more Terminator Genisys ads to go and we’ll have seen the whole movie! Today brings two new TV spots for director Alan Taylor’s Terminator reboot/sequel. Opening July 1st, the film stars Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke, former Doctor Who star Matt Smith, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Sarah Connor’s “Guardian” T-800.
The Peanuts Movie
It’s Your Brand New Movie Poster, Charlie Brown! While Charlie takes the front row, lots of Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip characters are featured in the latest poster for the CG-animated The Peanuts Movie. Directed by Steve Martino, the film arrives on November 6th, and stars the voices of Noah Schnapp, Hadley Belle Miller, AJ Tecce, Noah Johnston, Venus Schultheis, Alexander Garfin, Francesca Capaldi, Mar Mar, Mariel Sheets, Rebecca Bloom, William Alexander Wunsch, Anastasia Bredikhina, and Madisyn Shipman.
The footage we saw at this year’s CinemaCon of director Robert Zelemckis’ The Walk, based on the true story of the French daredevil Philippe Petit who walked between the World Trade Center towers in 1974, rocked our socks off. Thankfully, the film’s new trailer continues to impress. Based on Petit’s book To Reach the Clouds, The Walk stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, Charlotte Le Bon, Clément Sibony, and César Domboy; and debuts in IMAX 3D on October 2nd.
