Watch The Final Toy Story 4 Trailer

Check out the final trailer for Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4, as well as two new images from the trailer featuring Woody, Bo Peep and Bonnie’s new friend Forky. 

Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie. So, when Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky (voice of Tony Hale), declares himself as “trash” and not a toy, Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. But when Bonnie takes the whole gang on her family’s road trip excursion, Woody ends up on an unexpected detour that includes a reunion with his long-lost friend Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts). After years of being on her own, Bo’s adventurous spirit and life on the road belie her delicate porcelain exterior. As Woody and Bo realize they’re worlds apart when it comes to life as a toy, they soon come to find that’s the least of their worries. 

The film features the voice talent of Tim Allen, Keegan-Michael Key, Madeleine McGraw, Christina Hendricks, Jordan Peele, Keanu Reeves, Ally Maki, Jay Hernandez, Lori Alan, Joan Cusack, Bonnie Hunt, Kristen Schaal, Emily Davis, Wallace Shawn, John Ratzenberger, Blake Clark, June Squibb, Carl Weathers, Lila Sage, Don Rickles, Jeff Garlin, Maliah Bargas-Good, Jack McGraw, Juliana Hansen, and Estelle Harris.

Directed by Josh Cooley (Riley’s First Date?), and produced by Mark Nielsen (associate producer Inside Out) and Jonas Rivera (Inside Out, Up), Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 4 ventures to theaters on June 21, 2019.

Watch The Final Brightburn Trailer

Ahead of the film’s release this Friday, Sony Pictures has released the terrifying final trailer for their forthcoming superhero horror film Brightburn, highlighting how a superhero can also become the face of evil.

A new take on the Superman origin story, BrightBurn asks, what if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.

BrightBurn is directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive) and written by Mark Gunn & Brian Gunn. Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Pitch Perfect) stars alongside David Denman (13 Hours, Power Rangers), Jackson A. Dunn (Shameless), Matt Jones (Mom, Home) and Meredith Hagner (Younger, Set it Up).

Screen Gems will release the film on May 24.

John Wick: Chapter 4 Set For 2021 Release Date

Following the record setting box office for the franchise this weekend with John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, Lionsgate has announced that Keanu Reeves will return once again as the eponymous assassin with John Wick: Chapter 4 set to arrive on May 21, 2021.

With each successive John Wick movie, the box office has nearly doubled. The first film opened in October 2014 with $14.4 million with Chapter 2 debuting in February 2017 with $$30.4 million, and Chapter 3 arrived in theaters this past weekend with $56.8 million.

The eponymous John Wick is on the run in Parabellum for two reasons. One, he’s being hunted for a global $14 million dollar open contract on his life, and two, for breaking a central rule: taking a life on Continental Hotel grounds. In this case, a member of the High Table who ordered the open contract. John should have already been executed, except the Continental’s manager, Winston (Ian McShane), has given him a one-hour grace period before he’s ‘Excommunicado’ – membership revoked, banned from all services and cut off from other members. John uses the service industry to stay alive as he fights and kills his way out of New York City.

Halle Berry, Angelica Huston, Asia Kate Dillon, Mark Dacascos, and Jason Mantzoukas are also starring in the film alongside Yayan Ruhian, Cecep Arif Rahman, and Tiger Hu Chen. Laurence Fishburne, Lance Reddick, and Ruby Rose are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel, with Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine) reportedly playing the main villain. Unfortunately, Common, who stole the show in John Wick: Chapter 2, told us last year that he will be sitting this one out.

Starz’ spin-off series The Continental, meanwhile, has acclaimed writer/producer Chris Collins (Sons of Anarchy, The Wire) executive producing.

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is in theaters now.

Game of Thrones Co-Creators David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Making Next Star Wars Film

Today Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that the Star Wars movie after The Rise of Skywalker will be penned by Game of Thrones creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

One week ago The Walt Disney Company put out their film slate through 2027, including three mystery Star Wars films dated for December 16, 2022, December 20, 2024 and December 18, 2026.

Regarding the break between the next Star Wars film and the planned 2022 movie, Iger said: “We’re hard at work already, but we felt three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and reset, but to gear up for the next film’s release.”

It was revealed last year that the pair would write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the previously announced trilogy that is in development from Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s Rian Johnson.

“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, previously said. “Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.”

“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” Benioff and Weiss said. “We are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started as soon as the final season of Game of Thrones is complete.”

No word has been revealed about when Rian Johnson’s trilogy will arrive, but Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released on December 20 of this year.
