Thanks to some combination of ingenious timing and sheer happenstance, the long-awaited sequel to Independence Day is set to arrive in June, almost exactly two decades after the original introduced the world to an alien-punching Will Smith. Officially titled Independence Day: Resurgence, this chapter in the history of Earth’s imminent destruction features absolutely zero Will Smith but apparently plenty of Jeff Goldblum.
But how has the planet been holding up in the years since the intergalactic war of 1996? According to this obviously fake United World News report, there’s no such thing as an opportune time to be violently invaded by extraterrestrial beings.
“As you know, it’s taken a huge effort to get a big military base on the moon,” Goldblum says. The quick 5-minute catch-up session also reveals that people are still stoked on President Whitmore (Bill Pullman)’s amazing speech inspired by the war of ’96, which makes perfect sense considering it’s a confirmed banger.
Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters on June 24, effectively ending the 20 years of peace celebrated above. Goldblum and Hemsworth will be joined by Sela Ward, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Brent Spiner, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch, and some presumably angry aliens.

Stephen King’s apocalyptic horror novel Cell was published 10 years ago, but had it taken place in 2016, we would all be screwed. “Don’t use your cell phone,” an out-of-breath John Cusack warns people in the trailer, and it’s the main survival tip for the latest King adaptation. Basically, the premise of the story is: Pick up your cell phone, and you turn into a zombiefied killing machine. Yup. And you thought brain cancer was bad.
Years ago, Eli Roth was attached to direct the project for a tentative 2009 release, but that never happened. It was announced in 2012 that Cusack would portray Clayton Riddell in the current version of the film, from director Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2). Samuel L. Jackson—who rarely puts up with this kind of fuckshit—stars in the upcoming horror film as a man trying to survive the mysterious broadcast turning everyone into rabid killers. Meanwhile John Cusack is out here trying to reunite with his son during these dire times. Jackson and Cusack are no strangers to each other or a Stephen King movie; the two appeared in the King adaptation 1408 in 2007.
Cell is out on VOD on June 10 and then gets a theatrical release on July 8. Dare to dial in?

Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska and Helena Bonham Carter reprise their roles as the Mad Hatter, Alice and the Red Queen in upcoming film Alice Through the Looking Glass, which comes based off of Lewis Carroll’s twisted children’s tale of the same name. Alice wakes up to find herself in a mental asylum and runs away, only to accidentally stumble back into the whimsical world of Wonderland where the evil villain Time (played by Sacha Baron Cohen) is causing temporal chaos, threatening the Mad Hatter’s life. Anne Hathaway also joins the cast as the White Queen, while the late Alan Rickman will be featured as the voice of Absolem the Caterpillar.
With new director James Bobin at the helm and Tim Burton on board as producer, the film should be a slight departure from the previous Burton-directed Alice in Wonderland from 2010. Watch the new trailer above and catch the first one here. Alice Through the Looking Glass hits theaters on May 27.

After months upon months of relentlessly trolling its most dedicated fans, HBO has unveiled the first proper trailer for Game of Thrones’ presumably maddening sixth season. As hinted by (former?) Thrones star Kit Harington in a series of recent post-death (?) interviews, the latest batch of ice and fire promises to lift the audience’s broken spirits only to most likely destroy them again by the end of the season.
“I’m not in the show anymore,” Harington told Time Out London last week of Jon Snow’s Thrones fate. “I’m definitely not in the new series.” However, in the same interview, Harington described his recent visit to the Thrones set to film some alleged corpse sequences as “some of [his] best work.” Given the whole post-Snow vibe of this trailer, HBO isn’t keen on divulging the status (ghost?) of its most-mourned casualty just yet. “He’s gone,” a familiar voice tells the audience, though no one really believes that.
“Season 5 was such that I was just really moved by it all, and in that respect, it’s something that you can never give a short shrift to any of the moments,” Game of Thrones director David Nutter told Deadline last June after that soul-crushing finale. According to Nutter, the only true way to direct an inevitably picked-apart-by-critics episode of Game of Thrones is to “pour my heart and soul into everything.” No complaints there, David Nutter.
Game of Thrones, in a move that now places it ahead of the books by George R.R. Martin, unveils the first episode of its sixth season on April 24.
