Hell. Yes. Look, we enjoyed Rogue One as much as the next guy, but we’re ready for some Episode 8 action. Well, here we go. Look, we’re not going to try and sell you on playing the video. You’re probably not even reading this. You’ve already clicked Play and are knee-deep in awesomeness. That said, you get a little Luke, a little Kylo Ren, and a little lightsaber training without too much plot being revealed. In an age of oversharing in trailers, that’s kinda nice. Is it December 15 yet?

Plenty of people developed a deep seated and lifelong fear of clowns after their first viewing of IT, in the same way most people born between 1960 and 1970 won’t go in the ocean anymore. And apparently coulrophobia is one of those cultural touchstones, because an IT remake is on its way to theaters this September. We got our first real look at footage from the movie in the form of the teaser trailer and we have to say, yup, stay the fuck away from us, every clown ever. The few glimpses we got of Pennywise are terrifying and the main kids look to have the acting chops necessary to carry this movie. If nothing else, this may signify a return to the suspense genre, with theaters full of frightened couples holding hands so hard their bones fuse.

Ryan Reynolds took to YouTube to drop “No Good Deed” — an almost-four-minute teaser for Deadpool 2 that is currently premiering before Logan screenings around the globe. In the pre-credits clip, the Marvel hero spots a helpless citizen being held a gunpoint, and while he gives his best attempt at a Superman-like costume switch in a phone booth, he eventually falls short of saving the day.
“No Good Deed” ends with a release date of “NOT SOON ENOUGH,” and what we assume is a Reynolds’ synopsis of The Old Man and the Sea in super fine print. Enjoy Reynolds’s butt, Stan Lee’s cameo, the Logan jabs, possible Easter eggs, and more below.

A24 has released the first trailer for It Comes at Night and it definitely knows how to set the tone. Full of ominous imagery like creepy paintings, angry spirits, a woods-stalking wolf and a red door, we can all tell bad things are about to happen. The film centers on a group stuck in an eerie house in the woods — presumably far away from help or cell service — who face an unseen threat; one that potentially manifests as a disease or bodily possession that could destroy the group from within. Joel Edgerton takes top billing as a father trying to protect his wife and son from what awaits outside. The film also stars Riley Keough, Christopher Abbott, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Carmen Ejogo. Look for It Comes at Night to hit theaters on August 25.

According to a survey posted on Monday by USA TODAY, your cracked iPhone could be the reason you’re not getting lucky. This comes as just one of many revelations revealed during the annual Singles in America survey, which asked 5,000 millennials their take on dating. When it comes to the iPhone, the singles surveyed made it clear that they don’t like phones which are cracked, old, or make those annoying clicking sounds when you text. To find out what else the survey revealed, check out the video here.
When FOX airs Super Bowl LI on February 5, the game will feature a never-before-seen camera angle that sees the field only as the players can. Instead of mounting cameras on the helmets of participating players, FOX will use Intel’s 360 Replay technology and its large collection of cameras around the stadium to generate a point-of-view perspective from any player on the field.
“We tasked Intel to push their amazing Intel 360 Replay technology to the limit of what it could do, using their array of cameras circling the stadium to synthesize a player’s view on the field,” said Michael Davies, FOX Sports SVP of Field & Technical Operations. “The cameras, backed up by a huge bank of Intel computing power, allow a moment to be recreated in 3D space, so that a ‘virtual camera; can be placed at the player;s eye line — not unlike how limitless camera views can be created in video games.”
Earlier this year, FOX Sports teamed with GoPro to offer a first-ever POV camera from the hat of referees working the Big Ten Championship Game. Only time will tell if we see this same feature on the helmets of NFL players.

On May 19, 2017, the one and only Alien franchise is back with Alien: Covenant. If the film is anything like the first official trailer, it’s going to be chock-full of terror, Sci-Fi, aliens, epic explosions, more terror, more explosions, even more terror and even more explosions as the crew of the colony ship Covenant uncovers what they think is an uncharted paradise. Spoiler alert: it’s not.

With both the holidays and Star Wars fever running high, we can now sit back and enjoy the classic song “Silent Night” sung by our favorite Wookie himself, Chewie. The idea was first created by Scott Andersen in 1999, and since then, the folks over at How It Should Have Ended have created a montage to complement the vocals. Check out Chewbacca’s rendition of “Silent Night” in his native Shyriiwook language below.

Cinematic universes are all the rage these days and Universal is the latest to get in on the action, uniting its famed monsters under a single umbrella of reboots with what’s aptly being called the Universal Monsters Cinematic Universe. And the first installment in the series? A brand new take on The Mummy.
Featuring a cast the includes Annabelle Wallis, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Courtney B. Vance and Russell Crowe, The Mummy stars none other than Tom Cruise. According to Universal, the film’s premise centers around “an ancient queen whose destiny was unjustly taken from her” and one who is awakened in the present day from what was thought to be a safe entombment deep beneath the desert. Upon awakening, “she brings with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.”
You can check out the first teaser trailer for the film below while its poster appears above. Alex Kurtzman’s The Mummy — which will be followed by The Invisible Man in 2018 and Van Helsing and Vampire Chronicles reboots in the years after — hits theaters June 9, 2017.

In an attempt to make its ads a little bit more useful, Instagram is adding new shoppable tags to its arsenal. Soon, you’ll notice that the ads in your feed — say, from Jack Threads, for instance — actually have tags for the products the depict. Click those tags and you’ll immediately get more info on whatever you’re looking at — not to mention a direct link to make a purchase on the web. And, as Engadget points out, the change isn’t intended to give Instagram a cut of purchases made through the tags. Instead, Instagram is hoping it will convince more advertisers to buy in to the social media network.
Take a look at how it works above and look for the change to hit your feed soon: Instagram is currently rolling the feature out to iOS users in the U.S. and eventually planning to bring it to Android as well. Expansion will also include video ads and additional countries in the near future while the ability to save items you’re interested in is also in the works.
