After sitting out xXx: State of the Union, Vin Diesel returns to the role of EXTREME sports enthusiast Xander Cage in xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. The first trailer for the reasonably titled sequel has arrived online, offering a sneak peek at Diesel and his new team of EXTREME sports pals and all their EXTREME sports skills — like skiing in the forest in the middle of summer — that will come in handy when they take on an international conspiracy.

‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Debuts New Footage in This Celebration Sizzle Reel

You may recall that J.J. Abrams debuted a sizzle reel for The Force Awakens at last year’s Comic-Con, which featured new footage and some great behind-the-scenes material — this sizzle reel for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is pretty similar. Instead of debuting a new trailer for the upcoming standalone / prequel story, director Gareth Edwards offered this fantastic sneak peek at the film during the Rogue One panel at Star Wars Celebration.

The Strange, Short-Lived ‘Bill and Ted’ TV Show That Time Most Righteously Forgot

If you were a fan of Bill & Ted in the late ’80s and early ’90s, then you probably recall a time when Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves’ rad, time-traveling high school party dudes were pretty much everywhere. They had their own animated TV spinoff, a Halloween special and even a breakfast cereal (“the most triumphant part of this balanced breakfast!”). What you might not remember is their incredibly short-lived live-action TV series — and who could blame you?

‘Suicide Squad’ Director David Ayer Explains Batman’s ‘Freaking Scary’ Role

As you’ve seen in the trailers, Ben Affleck’s Batman makes an appearance in Suicide Squad, which makes sense given that A. It’s a DC Comics movie and B. It features The Joker — you can’t exactly have a movie starring Batman’s arch-nemesis without including Batman himself. But exactly how does the Dark Knight fit into David Ayer’s super-villain team-up?

A Brief History of People Comparing Their Movies to Christopher Nolan’s Batman Series

This week, an interview with Bryan Cranston made the rounds in which the actor compared the new Power Rangers movie to Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight. Baffling as that analogy may seem, it’s far from the first time that we’ve heard an actor, filmmaker or producer compare a forthcoming project to Nolan’s Batman films — something that’s become shorthand for “gritty reboot.” Here, we’ve collected a brief history of the many, many, MANY times that people have compared their films to Nolan’s Batman. As you can imagine, most — if not all — of these things were nothing like those Batman films.

‘Suicide Squad’ Assembles the Worst of the Worst in New Magazine Covers

We are about a month away from the release of Suicide Squad, David Ayer’s devious new DC super-villain team-up that brings The Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot and more together in what will hopefully prove to be an antidote to this disappointing summer movie season. If you’re itching for a new look at the Squad, Ayer’s film has taken over the latest edition of EW, which features the cast on four different magazine covers as well as some new info on the highly-anticipated project.

George Takei Says ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Sulu Reveal Is ‘Unfortunate’

Well this is certainly unexpected. Earlier today, we learned that Star Trek Beyond will reveal that John Cho’s Sulu is gay, a move partially intended to honor the legacy of George Takei, the actor who originated the iconic role in the classic television series and who himself came out as gay in 2005. You’d think that Takei of all people would be thrilled by the decision, but that’s not exactly the case.

‘Pacific Rim 2’ Will Drift Into Theaters in 2018

Things were looking pretty rough for Pacific Rim 2, but the sequel has been coming together slowly but surely, first with the addition of former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight as director, then with Derek Connolly as screenwriter, and — best of all — with John Boyega joining the cast as our new apocalypse-canceller. Today brings even more good news for fans of the kaiju vs. robots blockbuster, as Pacific Rim 2 has been given an official release date.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Is No Match For ‘Finding Dory’

It took 20 years for Roland Emmerich to deliver a sequel to Independence Day, a film that’s largely responsible for the modern summer blockbuster season. Unfortunately, it looks like most audiences didn’t think it was worth the wait. As predicted in recent weeks, Resurgence crash-landed in theaters with an underwhelming opening weekend that was no match for Pixar’s Finding Dory.
