The trailer shows plenty of private footage of the superstar, talking about her life as an artist in the public eye, clips from her tours and red carpets, and a brief glimpse of her backstage hugging boyfriend actor Joe Alwyn.

“I became the person everyone wanted me to be,” Swift says in the trailer. “I had to deconstruct an entire belief system, toss it out and reject it.”

Morbius’ First Official Trailer Reveals First Look At The Character

By Creative Media Times

Sony’s own Spidey-verse seem to be taking shape with the release of Morbius trailer, revealing a surprise appearance of Micheal Keaton’s Vulture, a character which appeared in “Spider-Man: Homecoming”.

Morbius features Jared Leto as the title character Michael Morbius, who’s suffering from a rare blood disease and tries a dangerous cure that afflicts him with a form of vampirism. The film is set to lay out the origins of the character.

In the comics, he is one of villains that Spider-Man has faced over the years, and first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #101 (October 1971).

With the boxoffice success of Venom in 2018, another character associated with Spider-Man, it is not unrealistic to imagine all these characters to cross over at some point in the future.

Last year, it was reported that Spider-Man would no longer be a member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to Sony and Marvel standoff over co-financing. Sony has film rights to the character since before Disney bought Marvel in 2009. This was somewhat resolved after the two studios announced a third co-produced Spider-Man movie.

Also in Morbius are Matt Smith, Adria Arjona, Jared Harris, Al Madrigal and Tyrese Gibson. Directed by Daniel Espinosa, “Morbius” is set for release on July 31, 2020.

Intense First Trailer For ‘A Quiet Place’ Sequel Released

By Creative Media Times

It was just two years ago when John Krasinski completely transformed his career; when his modestly-budgeted horror directorial debut, “A Quiet Place” became a massive commercial and critical hit.

Now he’s back behind the camera for the highly-anticipated sequel, “A Quiet Place Part II.” On New Year’s Day, Paramount Pictures released the film’s stunning first full-length trailer.

The trailer shows us a few flash backs of how it all started, showing Emily Blunt’s character Evelyn, driving her kids amidst the street chaos and glimpses of monsters on the loose.

The family runs away, searches for a safe haven as well as the father Lee (John Krasinski), who didn’t appear in the trailer. We know now that they survived that ordeal based on what transpired on the first film.

The trailer then picks up shortly after the events of the original. We see the The Abbotts leaving their home as their farm burns. They journey by foot into an unknown ghost town, baby in tow. Later we see another survivor, Cillian Murphy’s character, who seem determined to cut contact with other humans.

“The people that are left are not the kind of people worth saving,” Murphy’s character warned Evelyn, suggesting there might be more to the terrifying monsters than what we have seen so far. There is also Djimon Hounsou, but details of his character is unclear.

It remains to be seen how much of the film takes place in the past. But its an intense and slick trailer, and looks to be a much bigger undertaking for Krasinski. This certainly looks like another winner for the actor-director, who is also working for his own script.

Paramount Pictures is set to release “A Quiet Place: Part II” on March 20, 2020.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis, for those who can’t resist:

“Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.”

Thrilling “Tenet” Trailer Released

By Creative Media Times

Director Christopher Nolan returns to his time-traveling roots, this time within the world international espionage in “Tenet,” with the film’s first trailer released today.

Like many of Nolan’s film, there is not a lot of details about the plot of the upcoming action thriller, which Nolan also wrote, as well as produced with Emma Thomas.

Here we see John David Washington as a mysterious agent of a top-secret group who may (or may not) be trying to prevent World War III. There’s plenty of cryptic dialogue, a car chase and a few things going in reverse that recall Nolan’s other mind-bender, 2010’s blockbuster Inception.

The film is stacked with big-name talents including Robert Pattinson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Caine, Kenneth Branagh and Elizabeth Debicki.

Last month, Warner Bros. also announced that a longer prologue for Tenet will be shown before Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in some IMAX screenings, something the studio also did with Nolan’s other films including “The Dark Knight,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” and “Dunkirk.”

Tenet is set for release on July 17th, 2020.

By Armando

Paramount Pictures

Maverick is set to return to theaters and to the cockpit in next summer’s Top Gun: Maverick, and today Paramount Picture has unveiled a new trailer that fully embraces original’s thrills and nostalgia.

Cruise looks very much in his element, understandably given the role and the 1986 original literally put him on top of Hollywood. This sequel picks up decades after that film.

The new trailer didn’t completely reveal the film’s plot, but we do know now that this time around Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is back to the naval school as a captain teaching aviation and the tricks of the trade.

Miles Teller is also in the film as pilot trainee Bradley “Rooster” Bradshaw, the son of Nick “Goose” Bradshaw, Maverick’s late friend.

“His exploits are legendary. What he has to teach you may very well mean the difference between life and death,” we hear in the new clip.

The new trailer is also heavy on action, featuring some heart-pounding and hyper realistic air combat, and shots of fighter jets leaving trails of smoke as they spinning through the skies, a factor that made the original a classic and inspired a generation of aviators.

The iconic instrumental theme for the 1986 film, which was in the original film’s best-selling soundtrack, was composed by Harold Faltermeyer & Steve Stevens. It eventually won Best Pop Instrumental Performance at 1987 Grammy Awards.

Directed by Joseph Kosinski, the film co-stars Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly, Jon Hamm, Glen Powell, Lewis Pullman, Ed Harris, and Val Kilmer who will reprise his role as Vice Admiral Tom “Iceman” Kazansky.
