The second season finale of Gotham – Wrath of the Villains: Transference – flirts heavily with going off the rails, but hangs on to provide a potentially catastrophic cliffhanger in which none of the usual suspects are actually at risk.

Oh, no. This time it’s Gotham as a whole that’s in trouble.

The first few episodes of AMC’s Preacher (Sunday, 10/9C) – adapted from the comic by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon about a preacher who, with two unlikely friends, goes looking for God with the intent of bringing Him back – is a unique series that features that unlikely trio, but does not (yet) go galloping off in all directions.

Which is good, because it gives us time to get to not only know a bit about the characters but see them in a consistent environment – however strange and twisted it might be.

Contextual Trailer: Star Trek Beyond!

STAR-TREK-BEYOND - That's My Chair

Remember the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond? The one that was a whirlwind of action with only pauses for a couple pithy remarks?  Remember how a lot of Trekkers complained that it looked like Beyond was going to be Fast and Furious in space?

The new trailer puts all that action into context – with Captain James T. Kirk facing a bit of an existential crisis, and a brief flurry of Spock/Bones debate. It’s as if Paramount Pictures was aware of how fans would react to the first trailer thus setting up this more typically Trek trailer.

This is a superb second trailer. Check it out after the break. Star Trek Beyond opens on July 22nd.

purge 3

Remember that nifty little horror movie The Purge? The one that was followed by the mostly adequate (but not really great shakes) sequel The Purge: Anarchy?

Well, in case you missed the first trailer for it, the sequel made enough money to spawn a threequel – The Purge Election Year. Basically, there’s a senator who wants to abolish the Purge – and whole lot of bloodthirsty manics who don’t want her to do that.

Check out the new trailer after the jump. The Purge: Election Year opens on July 1st.
