Watch The New Rambo: Last Blood Trailer

Lionsgate has released a new trailer for Rambo: Last Blood, the fifth and final film in the Sylvester Stallone action saga.

Rambo: Last Blood finds John Rambo coping with intense PTSD while living on a ranch in Arizona, trying to pick up casual work wherever he can. Soon his friend and estate manager Maria informs him that her granddaughter went missing after crossing into Mexico for a party, so John travels south of the border to find the youngster. The quest quickly turns into a violent descent into hell as Rambo uncovers a sex-trafficking ring, teaming up with a journalist whose half-sister has also been kidnapped. Rambo has to deploy all his skills to save the girls and bring down a vicious crime lord.

The film is directed by Adrian Grunberg with Matt Cirulnick (Absentia) and Stallone writing the screenplay for Rambo: Last Blood, which Avi Lerner and Kevin King will produce. Stallone last played the role of John Rambo in 2008’s Rambo, which earned $113.2 million worldwide on a $50 million budget. He also wrote and directed that film.

Rambo: Last Blood is scheduled for release on September 20.

The first trailer for Apple’s upcoming The Morning Show is here.

The series, which has already received a two-season and 20-episode order and created by Michael Ellenberg (The Leftovers) with Kerry Ehrin serving as the series’ writer. 

What happens when the people you trust to tell the truth prove themselves to be dishonest? The Morning Show follows the free fall of an early morning newscast in the wake of a scandal, and its struggle to survive in an era when news arrives in the palm of your hand.

The Morning Show stars Steve Carell (Beautiful Boy, Welcome to Marwen), Jennifer Aniston (Murder Mystery), Reese Witherspoon (Big Little Lies), Billy Crudup (Titanic), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Black Mirror), Nestor Carbonell (The Dark Knight) and Mark Duplass (Big Mouth).

The series also marks Carell’s first foray back into the small screen after seven seasons starring on The Office. It also marks Aniston’s return to television for the first time in 15 years since starring in one of the main roles on the hit NBC sitcom Friends, with the actress also choosing to focus on film roles. While she’s had bit-parts on TV in years past, (including Friends), Witherspoon made her debut in a starring TV role in last year’s Big Little Lies, which she also executive produced.

The Morning Show will premiere this fall, along with the launch of Apple TV+.

J.J. Abrams, The Modern Master of Mystery, Makes His Mark On Marvel In The Spider-Man #1 Trailer

J.J. Abrams takes the webbed wonder to new heights when he and his son Henry partner with legendary spider-artist Sara Pichelli for a Spider-Man story like you’ve never seen before! Cadaverous, a terrifying new villain, will force Spidey to make some of the hardest choices of his life. Can he protect MJ, Manhattan…or even himself? Check out this brand new trailer for Spider-Man #1 featuring Executive Editor Nick Lowe and writers J.J. and Henry Abrams!  

Die-Cut Variant Cover designed by Chip Kidd

“Having these geniuses working together on Spider-Man, the greatest fictional character of all time, couldn’t be better,” Lowe exclaimed, a sentiment shared by the Abrams. “We knew [Sara Pichelli’s] stuff – she’s a genius,” J.J. added. “The fact that we got Sara to do this book was the luckiest gift of all time.”

Henry Abrams went on to shed more light on the creative team’s thinking behind the scenes. “Spider-Man in general has been one of the most interesting super hero characters to me – how when he gets stronger, his problems get bigger,” he said. “A large focus on our series was [Spider-Man] as a person and not just him as a mask. So how does he deal with these real issues? It’s been a pleasure exploring that.”

“Cadaverous is one of the most terrifying Spider-Man villains of all time – and that’s saying something,” Lowe warned. “Spidey has faced the Green Goblin, Carnage, Venom, and Cadaverous might be even scarier and a little bit grosser than any of them.”

Spider-Man #1 arrives September 18 in comic shops.

Watch The Trailer For Dolemite Is My Name Starring Eddie Murphy

Stung by a string of showbiz failures, floundering comedian Rudy Ray Moore (Academy Award nominee Eddie Murphy) has an epiphany that turns him into a word-of-mouth sensation: step onstage as someone else. Borrowing from the street mythology of 1970s Los Angeles, Moore assumes the persona of Dolemite, a pimp with a cane and an arsenal of obscene fables. However, his ambitions exceed selling bootleg records deemed too racy for mainstream radio stations to play. Moore convinces a social justice-minded dramatist (Keegan-Michael Key) to write his alter ego a film, incorporating kung fu, car chases, and Lady Reed (Da’Vine Joy Randolph), an ex-backup singer who becomes his unexpected comedic foil. Despite clashing with his pretentious director, D’Urville Martin (Wesley Snipes), and countless production hurdles at their studio in the dilapidated Dunbar Hotel, Moore’s Dolemite becomes a runaway box office smash and a defining movie of the Blaxploitation era.

Comics and rappers have praised Moore as a pioneering influence over the past few decades, and Dolemite Is My Name is a hilarious celebration of a singular talent who made his own legend. From director Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow, Empire); Emmy and Golden Globe-winning writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Ed Wood, The People vs. O.J. Simpson); and the producing team of Oscar and Golden Globe nominee John Davis (Ferdinand, Joy), Golden Globe nominee John Fox (Joy) and Murphy; the film features an all-star supporting cast — including Mike Epps, Craig Robinson, Tituss Burgess, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Snoop Dogg, Ron Cephas Jones, Barry Shabaka Henley, Tip ‘TI’ Harris, Luenell, Tasha Smith — plus costumes designed by Academy Award winner Ruth E. Carter (Black Panther). 

In select theaters and on Netflix this fall.
