Howdy, filmgoers! Wondering if this here Warcraft movie you’ve heard so much about will satisfy the craving for big-screen fantasy battles you’ve had ever since The Two Towers? We’ve got a new featurette on the film’s epic orc-human combat in today’s Movie Morsels. Plus, new posters for Star Trek Beyond and The Legend of Tarzan, and lots more!
Will Warcraft see director Duncan Jones continue the winning streak he’s has since his debut film Moon and prove he’s as good at action as he’s been at drama? There’s some new clues to help you that answer that question in the film’s latest behind-the-scenes video, which looks at the making of its massive battle scene…
Star Trek Beyond
At last weekend’s Star Trek Fan Event, Paramount gave away one thousand copies of a limited edition Star Trek Beyond poster to lucky attendees, designed as an homage to 1979’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Now, the studio has unveiled a new official theatrical poster for the film.

Felicity Jones and Nicholas Hoult, two of the UK’s hottest young stars, play a couple facing a life-threatening crisis in Collide. Sir Ben Kingsley and Sir Anthony Hopkins lend support, but it’s the film’s action that takes center stage in its new trailer and poster…
Finally today… Two actors one doesn’t typically associate with noir thrillers, Simon Pegg (pictured above in Star Trek Beyond) and Mike Myers, have signed on for Terminal, a film about hitmen on a high-paying suicide mission. Hollywood “It Girl” Margot Robbie is also on board the Vaughn Stein-directed movie. We haven’t seen Myers on the big screen since his cameo in Inglourious Basterds, so here’s hoping the wait was worth it.
