  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREVIEW: Trainspotting 2 is another remake that, while it seems a bit unnecessary as a concept, is getting decent reviews. Horror/thrillers round out the rest of the weekend premiers with The Belko Experiment ad The Devil's Candy.

  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREVIEW: In addition to Kong, a strange movie called Raw comes out this weekend. It appears to be some kind of cannibal type of film? Also, yet another Scientology movie is out, called "My Scientology Movie".
  • THOR: RAGNAROK IMAGES: Taiki Waititi's upcoming movie in the Thor franchise, finally released some set photos and they did not disappoint. From a short-haired Thor, to the Goddess of Death, to Jeff Goldblum, this may be the best one yet.

  • DEADPOOL 2: The teaser that played before Logan shows us what a polar opposite R-Rated superhero movie that Deadpool is. Could this also be the jumping off point for an X-Force film?

  • JURASSIC WORLD 2: Our first image has emerged to give us a look at Jurassic World 2. It doesn't tell us a lot, but will the premise be that the knowledge of how to clone dinosaurs goes open-source?
  • GEOSTORM: Fans of natural disaster movies will get a little bit of everything in this movie, set in the distant future where technology controls the weather.
  • LOONEY TUNES STREAMING SERVICE: Boomerang is on pace to become an animated warehouse, grabbing the rights to stream 1000 episodes of cartoons, including Looney Tunes.
  • LITTLE MERMAID: The upcoming live action movie is not made by Disney, instead focusing on the original fairy tale. The trailer proves to be brilliantly bad.

  • BEFORE I FALL: An alternative to Logan this weekend is this movie, which appears to be a teen SciFi drama version of Groundhog Day.
  • KONG SKULL ISLAND: The final trailer for the new Kong movie is out and this one gives the movie a different look. Giant lizards, machine guns and a lot of Kong make this look like a pretty good action movie.
  • GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2: We find out a lot more of the details of the upcoming Marvel movie in their latest trailer. With squid-like monsters, Borg-like people, an appearance by Mantis and much more, we'll break it all down for you.

  • BRIGHT: Bright is a movie set in a world where orcs, elves, fairies, pixies and humans have all existed together. Then Will Smith comes in. Then an Orc becomes a police officer.

  • THE DISCOVERY: This intriguing movie is set in the near future, where a Doctor has discovered proof of the afterlife. It's coming to Netflix in May, with a fully loaded cast.
  • BETWEEN THE CRACKS: SCHITT$ CREEK: This series is funny and charming, starring Eugene Levy and some of his real life family members. It's light, with a great cast and definitely worth checking out.

  • MILLIE BOBBIE BROWN: The star of Stranger Things will be joining the cast of Godzilla.
