Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams

J.J. Abrams is behind some of the biggest pop culture shows and films of this century. From his humble start with Felicity then jumping into spy drama Alias, the mystery box LOST, then blockbuster films like Mission: Impossible III, Super 8, Star Trek, and, of course, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX. And now it looks like he is ready to take his reach a bit further.

According to new reports, the filmmaker is looking to sign an all-encompassing megadeal with any studio that would include giving him the power to do whatever he wants. More on the report, below.

Transformers Bumblebee

One of the biggest criticisms of the Transformers film franchise is that it looked nothing like the Transformers fans knew and loved. However, Bumblebee, the first Transformers film spinoff, represents something new and exciting. The teaser trailer gave us a brief look at the fan favorite Autobot’s first mission on Earth, as a VW Bug.

Now Paramount has released a brand new trailer for the film, and it’s filled with even more 80’s references and old school Transformers than you can roll out at. Check it out here below.

The upcoming Transformers spinoff Bumblebee promises to be an exciting adventure in the same vein as some of the great Amblin films of the 1980s. Starring Hailee Steinfeld, the film sees one of the bravest Autobots trying to outrun two Decepticon seekers, named Shatter and Dropkick.

Now, just ahead of its big San Diego Comic-Con debut, Paramount has dropped a new image from the film, one that introduces the two Decepticons. Check it out below.

Miles Teller To Play Son Of Goose In Top Gun 2

Original Top Gun stars Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer are returning for Top Gun 2, but now a newcomer is joining the cast.

It’s being reported that Whiplash star Miles Teller has signed on for the sequel, which is officially titled Top Gun: Maverick. But while he wasn’t in the original—in fact, he hadn’t even been born when the original was released—he is playing a character very much tied to the original. Teller will be playing the protege of Cruise’s Maverick, and the son of Maverick’s co-pilot in the original, Goose, who was played by Anthony Edwards.

Cloverfield

For a very long time, we were under the assumption that Overlord was connected to the Cloverfield universe.

That being said it looks like Overlord, the sci-fi World War II film with soldiers fighting Nazis and their supernatural forces, is not one. However, J.J. Abrams, who has been a producer on all the Cloverfield films, says that a true sequel is in the works. More on the story below.

The Cloverfield Paradox

Sure everyone was surprised when Netflix released The Cloverfield Paradox just moments after Super Bowl LII. While the excitement for yet another Cloverfield could not be contained, the reviews that followed after critics watched the film were swift. Many said it was easy to see why Paramount may have dumped the film on over to Netflix, who reportedly paid up to $50 million dollars to distribute it.

Now we are getting a better picture of why the studio may have done that. However, it also appears that this will be a one-time thing as the studio has every intention to release the next film in the connected cinematic universe, Overlord, theatrically. More on the story below.

‘Cloverfield Paradox’ Super Bowl Spot: Netflix To Debut New Film After The Big Game

Cloverfield Paradox

The first look at Cloverfield Paradox aired during the Super Bowl on Sunday night, and in a huge surprise announcement, Netflix will premiere the film on their streaming service tonight after the Big Game!

After being delayed multiple times, the film continues the vague and strange marketing campaign that the Cloverfield films are largely known for. Even finding out who will distribute the film was a mystery. But Netflix is no stranger to releasing big teasers on Super Bowl Sunday. They started to practice that last year with Stranger Things 2, and look how successful that turned out to be.

Now the teaser offers a tiny sneak peek into J.J. Abram’s latest mystery box, and it is just as cryptic and strange as the last two. Check out the first look at Cloverfield Paradox here below.

‘God Particle’: ‘Cloverfield’ Spinoff May Be Released By Netflix

10 Cloverfield Lane Cast

The Cloverfield films have been known to have an unorthodox marketing campaign. From out of nowhere a trailer can appear for a film that was produced under a different title. And for the most part, this strategy has worked. It may not produce wild box office numbers like blockbuster tentpoles do, but under the production and marketing budget of the two films so far, it is enough of a hit to warrant more.

However, it appears that Paramount Pictures is having second thoughts about releasing the next Cloverfield film, which is tentatively titled God Particle. There are reports now that the film might be heading to Netflix. More on the story below.
