With Star Wars: The Force Awakens now just about 2 months away, many people have been speculating when a new trailer may drop since it has been nearly 6 months since the previous trailer. Well, according to a story at Star Wars 7 News, the day for the new trailer will be October 19th. The outlet claims to have a source that has verified the information.
Marvel Studios has hired Joe Robert Cole to write the script for their upcoming superhero film Black Panther. Cole has reportedly collaborated with Marvel before in the form of writing a draft for their upcoming Inhumans feature and apparently Marvel liked his work. Actor Chadwick Boseman is already signed on to play The Black Panther and will make his debut in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. The Black Panther is currently scheduled to hit theatres on July 6, 2018.
A new international trailer for the upcoming Brian Cranston film Trumbo has hit the web. Trumbo follows the successful career of the 1940s screenwriter and explores how it all came to a crushing end when he and other Hollywood figures are blacklisted for their political beliefs. The film tells the story of Trumbo’s fight against the U.S. government and studio bosses in a war over words and freedom. Trumbo was the highest paid screenwriter of his day when he was brought before Senator Joseph McCarthy’s House Un-American Activities Committee. Refusing to testify, Trumbo was blacklisted, but continued to write under fake names, winning Academy Awards for both Irving Rapper’s The Brave One and William Wyler’s Roman Holiday.

Jesús Anaya writes: Hi Collider crew, I love your show. My question is: Is the release date of Star Wars a signal that they would try to compete to win some Oscars (including BEST PICTURE)? It seems they sacrificed the summer blockbuster release dates that could have earned them tons of money! Does that explain the winter release date? Do they have a bigger goal than the money?
Abigail Jones writes: Now that you are doing TV reviews, I was wondering what your opinion is on big TV scenes that are mostly digital special effects. I feel like a lot of TV shows don’t have the budget to make it look good. I know there is a lot of little things that are CGI’ed that we would never know, but I’m talking about huge scenes. They’re terrible! For example, I liked Agent Carter but the fight scenes are terrible, they look so fake. Do you think TV shows should stay away from huge amounts of CGI if they can’t make it look good?
Matt Smith writes: Quick and easy question from your biggest fan. Why have we not gotten a new Dredd movie? It was visually stunning, good story and I just really enjoyed the whole Fillm. So what’s up? Will we ever see the second movie?
Kristopher Hite writes: Hey Collider crew a quick question about Luther in BvS. Do you think WB is hedging their bets by making Eisenberg Luther Jr just in case the general public really does not like him in this movie? That would leave them an out to bring in an older Luthor in Lex Sr if they need to change latter on. Eisenberg still seems to be the biggest point of contention on this movie so far so leaving an easy way to change Luthors does make some sense.
