The new trailer for Columbia’s Flatliners uses a breathy electronic score to emphasize the creepiness that ensues after five medical students submit to controlled clinical death to explore whatever might  follow dying.

The Dark Tower – No! Just No!

Roland (Idris Elba) in Columbia Pictures’ THE DARK TOWER.

It’s been a couple decades since I read The Dark Tower but I chose not to re-read it before seeing the movie. Big mistake!

Like City of Bones: The Mortal Instruments, The Dark Tower is more a collection of key moments from the book (as I recall it) and absolutely none of the connective tissue – like plot, explanations (of anything – not just how the Man in Black’s magicks work – let alone why Roland is immune to them).

Throughout its development and shoot, practically everyone on the Marvel Studios team would talk about how Spider-Man: Homecoming would a John Hughes-styled high school movie with the bonus of superheroics.

Everyone involved somehow managed to make that thought reality. Spider-Man: Homecoming is a unique mix of John Hughes and Marvel.

Sucked Into a Video Game Trailer: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle!

The new take on Jumanji – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – ages up the kids who are about to play the game of their lives – they’re now teens in high school forced together by detention (shades of The Breakfast Club!).

When they are given the task of cleaning out the school’s basement, they stumble onto an old video game called Jumanji and get sucked into it as the avatars they’d chosen to play – but the avatars are not exactly what they thought they’d be (above)…

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle opens on December 20th.
