It’s time to update your roster of the players on board for next year’s Avengers: Infinity War, because we now have confirmation that the Celestial Madonna herself, i.e. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2‘s Mantis, will lend her extraterrestrial talents to the proceedings, presumably on the side of good. Actress Pom Klementieff broke the news via a new photo on her Instagram account, in which she shows off a hat with the film’s distinct logo…

The Belko Experiment

And speaking of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2., The film’s director James Gunn–who, lest ye forget, scripted the Dawn of the Dead remake and wrote and directed Slither–continues to set our hearts aflutter with anticipation for his return to horror. His upcoming The Belko Experiment has just released its third trailer, which, like the two that preceded, promises that there will indeed be blood.

John Wick: Chapter 2

Get ready, folks, as you’re about to witness the Matrix reunion you didn’t know you were waiting for. Keanu “Neo” Reeves shares the screen once more with Laurence “Morpheus” Fishburne in the latest clip from John Wick: Chapter 2. Ah, if only they could have found a way to fit Carrie-Anne Moss into this thing. Oh well…

Lowriders

No, it’s not a commercial for denim jeans. Instead, Lowriders is a drama about a kid who, while living on the mean streets of LA, is torn between loyalties to his dad and his criminal uncle. Most importantly, it co-stars the always watchable Eva Longoria and Supergirl herself, Melissa Benoist! Here’s the film’s first trailer.
