The Mosasaurus swims after his great white shark lunch in a new poster for Jurassic World!

Another new poster has been released by direct Colin Trevorrow for Jurassic World!

This time the poster shows a young boy watching the Mosasaurus about to eat his lunch; a great white shark! Knowing that great white sharks are about 21 feet (6.4m) in length, you can see how huge the Mosasaurus is!

You can see a poster of Bryce Dallas Howard face to face with the Indominus Rex here.

Jurassic World will open to the public on June 12, 2015.

Star Wars Rebels season 2 trailer is released with incredible footage and surprise character appearances!

Star Wars Celebration is still in full swing in Anaheim, California and the Season 2 trailer for the hit television show Star Wars Rebels has just been revealed!

The new trailer is three and a half minutes long and completely jam packed with amazing footage! The crew of The Ghost is back along with Ahsoka Tano, Darth Vader, and even Captain Rex and Hondo Ohnaka from Star Wars: The Clone Wars! What?! Wow!

It's clear that things for the young rebels are heating up and the action only looks to be getting bigger and better as the second season rolls on. We get to see some iconic rebel starfighters (A-Wing and B-Wing) in action as well as some very interesting new Sith with a spinning lightsaber similar to the Inquisitor's.  The relationship between Kanan and Rex will be interesting to watch considering the Clones hunted down and killed the Jedi. The eventual showdown between Ahsoka and Darth Vader will be extremely exciting as well. Does she know that he is Anakin Skywalker, her old master? Could she possibly know? We'll have to wait and see.

Goodnight Westeros - A dark, twisted Game of Thrones version of the childrens book Goodnight Moon.

Check out this really funny video that imagines what it would be like if the classic children's book Goodnight Moon had a darker, more twisted version inspired by author George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones). The new book is titled "Goodnight Westeros" and goes around the room wishing various objects and inhabitants of Westeros good night. This is very clever and fans of the books and television show will definitely enjoy it.

The second trailer for the live action Attack on Titan has been released! (See the first trailer here.) It's hard for me to comment on the trailer since I have not watch the anime but it looks pretty cool and the effects for the titans seems to be good. I know there are a lot of people out there that are excited for this film and this trailer should give them a good look at what is to come.

Watch the entire Star Wars: The Force Awakens panel from Star Wars Celebration!

There has been a lot of great news and photos coming out of Star Wars Celebration this weekend. One of the biggest things to come out of the convention was the all new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. The new trailer debuted during the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Celebration Panel with director J.J. Abrams and LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy. The two walk fans through the new film and how J.J. Abrams is bringing back the original feel of the films from the original trilogy to this new film.

Joining the pair on stage are members of the original cast (Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Anthony Daniels, and Peter Mayhew), the new cast (Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac), as well as characters from the film such as droids and the new stormtroopers.

Below you can watch the entire Star Wars: The Force Awakens Celebration Panel. It is a lot of fun and filled with some truly amazing information on the creation of the film. Enjoy!

Zack Snyder has released an HD version of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer!

In order to get ahead of yesterday's leak director Zack Snyder has released an HD version of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer! There are a lot of interesting things shown in this teaser trailer but you know that everyone is checking out Ben Affleck as Batman. Since Day 1 of his casting I have been saying not to judge him until you actually see him in the part. He looks great in the suit at the 1:32 mark (he really put on some muscle) but the "Batman voice" that he uses at the end of the trailer sounds a little off for me. Perhaps he is trying to sound deeper, and more threatening, because it is a big confrontation with Superman. We'll have to wait and see.

There are things I like and things that bother me (will touch on this in a different article) but overall it is a cool trailer that puts forward some interesting themes that will be touched on in the film. Enjoy the trailer below!

Ahsoka Tano squares off against Darth Vader in a beautiful new Star Wars Rebels poster!

An amazing new poster for the hit television show Star Wars Rebels has just been revealed at Star Wars Celebration! During the Season 1 finale, it was revealed that the fan favorite character Ahsoka Tano had been in the shadows throughout the entirety of the first season. Fans erupted in excitement when Ahsoka revealed herself to the crew of The Ghost (the show's main characters).

The new poster features Ahsoka Tano (wielding her new lightsabers) squaring off against her old master Anakin Skywalker, now Darth Vader! This is truly an incredible piece of art and I cannot wait to see these two confront each other in the show. The look of intensity in Ahsoka's face is awesome. I'm curious if Ahsoka knows who Darth Vader is under the mask.

One thing is for sure, Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels is going to be amazing!

A very big thank you goes out to my friend Julian for finding this poster and sending it my way!! It is incredible!

6 things you may have missed in the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer.

YouTuber Mr Sunday Movies has returned once again to bring us another "6 Things You Missed" video, this time on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you haven't had the chance to see the trailer yet watch it now here.

The new trailer is completely filled with amazing new things in the Star Wars universe. During their cheers and tears of joy, fans may have missed a few things in the trailer and that is where this video comes in. Mr Sunday Movies will point out six big things that you may have overlooked.

I would like to point out three things myself that a lot of fans seemed to have overlooked. In the opening shot of the new trailer, fans were really excited to see the downed Star Destroyer in the background. However, if you look at the foreground you also see a downed X-Wing fighter which is also completely awesome! At the 1:12 mark where you see the new Stormtroopers who can see that their base is located on a snowy planet, perhaps Hoth? Also, if you look towards the back you see a figure standing over them that could be the new leader of  the "First Order". Very interesting stuff!

Watch the video below for six more great things you may have missed.

Incredible Star Wars: Battlefront reveal trailer will make you want to buy a next gen console!

EA has finally released the first trailer for their new video game Star Wars: Battlefront and it looks stunning. Unfortunately, the trailer uses game engine cinematic footage and no gameplay footage is seen yet but it still looks incredible. This game will let fans live out their ultimate desires and let you fly ships that are exact photo recreations from the Lucas Film archives and be any character you'd like.
"Feel the ominous thud of an AT-AT stomping towards your location as Rebel forces fire blasters at Imperial speeder bikes zipping by. Look up to see an intense dogfight between X-wings and TIE fighters filling the sky above you. Get ready to immerse yourself in epic Star Wars™ battle fantasies when Star Wars™ Battlefront™ releases on November 17 in North America and starting November 19 in Europe for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on Origin for PC.

It has now also been confirmed that players will get extra content that will directly connect to events in Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
"Pre-order Star Wars™ Battlefront™ and on December 1st, 2015, be among the first players to experience the Battle of Jakku*, the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet in the Outer Rim.

Jakku is the desert planet seen in the second trailer. That is fantastic! This game looks like it will be everything that Star Wars fans have been waiting for. Will you be picking it up?
