The end of one month means the start of another, which also means that new things are coming to a streaming platform near you. Netflix’s July instant releases are stacked, and include a few classic cartoon dinosaur movies, the premieres of a new Netflix original shows, and one Star Wars Story.
There are a few set staples of any high school movie: the scene where one character tours another character around the cafeteria and shows them who the jocks and the nerds are; the scene where one character has something mortifying happen to them and everyone laughs, preferably in a public space like the classroom or the gym; and, of course, a house party scene. Spider-Man: Homecoming, being a high school movie, obviously has at least the third option.
Just because War for the Planet of the Apes is poised to finish up the current Apes trilogy, that doesn’t mean it can’t introduce a few new characters into the mix. We’ve already met Nova, the mute human child that’ll connect this trilogy to the original movies, but there’s another new face joining Caesar’s crew. Bad Ape, portrayed by Steve Zahn, is a similarly altered chimpanzee who learned to talk when the Simian Flu hit and wiped out most of humanity, and he brings news to Caesar’s tribe of an ape zoo that he escaped from.
One of the most charming aspects of Captain America: Civil War was the relationship between Tony Stark and Peter Parker, the Avengers’ youngest, spunkiest recruit. It”ll be fun to see their friendship blossom in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and a new featurette delves a little deeper into their hilarious mentor-mentee dynamic.
Deadpool 2 is going to introduce at least three new characters into the world of the X-Men offshoot, but we only know for sure who two of them are. Domino and Cable have both been cast (Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin, respectively), but there are plenty more mutants the movie could add. We know that the mysterious villain has been cast, and we might know who he’ll be playing, and today brought the news that Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna has been added for a “key role,” though we don’t know for sure who that could be either.
War for the Planet of the Apes marks the conclusion of Caesar’s story, and the beginning of a new world. Whether that means a world of apes or humans remains to be seen (I mean, we know, but let’s just pretend). A new TV spot invites us to “witness the end” of the series, and of one species’ tenure on a dying planet.
Because the one thing this world has been clamoring for is a Suicide Squad sequel, we’ve got a few updates on Deadshot and the gang’s next adventure. For one thing, the script is being written right now, and it looks like, although it doesn’t officially have a director, the movie is on track for a production start sometime next year.
It’s that time again: time to round up everything coming and going from all the streaming services at the start of the new month. Netflix has a pretty fantastic slate for this June, which includes their Cannes contender Okja, directed by Bong Joon-ho and starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal. There’s also a few popular 2016 releases like Xavier Dolan’s It’s Only the End of the World, and Catfight, that movie about Sandra Oh and Anne Heche beating the living daylights out of each other. And if you want to hear a bunch of animated plants sing Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence,” give Trolls a shot.
Alien: Covenant is arriving soon, whether we’re ready for it or not, and a short new clip assures us that this movie is definitely more horror than sci-fi. Even these thirty seconds are enough to make one feel antsy, and the final sound effect is enough to send a million chills down the spine. The Xenomorphs are back, baby!
Do you love The Thing? Do you wish you, too, could trap yourself in a snowed-in bunker with a bunch of other people and one bloodthirsty, shapeshifting alien? Good news! Mondo, the company behind pretty much every amazing non-official movie poster you’ve ever seen, has come out with a board game based on the John Carpenter classic, and we’ve got your first look at it right here.
Free Comic Book Day is a fun time of the year for anyone even remotely interested in comics. Companies and stores pick out some select stories that customers can get for free, and some artists and writers even make comics especially for Free Comic Book Day. Luc Besson and the folks behind Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets have put together a sneak peek of their new movie in the form of a preview comic that introduces us to the characters of Valerian and Laureline and details a few of their adventures.
