We usually save trailers for our Trailer Watch feature but we thought you’d want to see this one ASAP.

We’ve seen a couple of atmospheric teasers for the film so far but now Sony has released the first official full trailer for Spectre, the 24th film in the long-running spy franchise. The new trailer gives us more insight into the mystery-shrowded plot, as well as plenty of action, 007’s snazzy new car and a proper look at Christoph Waltz as the villain who calmly tells Bond that he’s, “the author of all your pain.”

Check out the awesome new trailer below:

Along with returning cast members like Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Ben Wishaw and Ralph Fiennes, Spectre also features Waltz, Dave Bautista, Lea Seydoux, Andrew Scott and Monica Belucci.

It’s set for an earlier-than-planned release in the UK on October 26th.

Watch: First Official Trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ 0 7

“Got room for one mo’?”

We’ve seen some teaser images and had the director himself talking about how it will be more of a comedy than we’ve seen from him before, but now we finally have the first official trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s latest Western The Hateful Eight.

It features an amazing all-star cast including Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen. Here’s the official synopsis:

In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all…

Needless to say I absolutely cannot wait for the film, not just because Tarantino is one of my favourite directors but because of that terrific cast and the fact that, irrespective of the pedigree, it looks AWESOME.

But enough of my yapping – let’s boogie!

The Hateful Eight is set for limited US release on Christmas Day this year. It releases fully in both the US and UK on January 8th, 2016.

Sony Release Slate Includes Two More ‘Bad Boys’ Sequels & ‘The Dark Tower’ 0 7

sony-release-slate-includes-two-more-bad-boys-sequels-and-the-dark-tower

Get ready for a whole load of new release date information as Sony has just announced its slate of upcoming projects for the next few years.

The most notable of the new stuff comes in the form of not one but TWO Bad Boys sequels -slated for Feburary 17th, 2017 and July 3rd, 2019, respectively – and the first in the long-awaited adaptation of The Dark Tower, which is set for January 13th, 2017.

The Bad Boys announcement follows on from news that Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Smokin’ Aces) had been hired to write the script and possibly direct a third film. Does this mean he’ll direct 3 and 4 or will they find someone else to helm the latter? FYI: Still no word on whether Will Smith and Martin Lawrence will definitely return for more, although it’s unlikely Sony would go ahead and announce this if they weren’t fairly confident on that front.

As for The Dark Tower, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo director Nikolaj Arcel will helm and oversee a rewrite of the script for that, which is planned as the start of an ambitious adaptation that may include several sequels and tie-in TV series.

Other films in Sony’s announcement include a Jumanji remake, set for Christmas Day, 2016; Baby Driver, the new film from Edgar Wright which is set for March 17th, 2017; Passengers, the highly anticipated sci-fi adventure starring Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt and Michael Sheen, has a release date of December 21st, 2016 (right in time for Oscar season); the dubious Barbie movie is being released on June 2nd, 2017; and Resident Evil 6 has a date of January 27th, 2017.

Some films that were previously announced but have just been given new dates include – the all-female Ghostbusters reboot which will now bow on July 15th, 2016 (going up against Ice Age 5 and Ryan Gosling/Emma Stone musical La La Land); The Magnificent Seven remake will hit cinemas on September 23rd, 2016; and the much anticipated video game adaptation Uncharted, which opens on June 30th, 2017.
