Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

The Meg has a terrific cast – Jason Statham, Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, Robert Taylor, Masi Oka and bingbing Li among them.

The Meg opens on August 10th.

Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) and four fellow gunters (Easter egg hunters) team up to beat corporate monolith Innovative Online Industries (I.O.I.), fronted by the slick Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn) – who has hundreds of experts behind the scenes, feeding him information and taking hits in the games – to the prize.

NYCC 2017 – We Have to Go Trailer: Justice League!

Earlier today, Warner Bros. dropped the final trailer for Justice League.

It still has the kind of ponderous feel of a Zack Snyder film, but is leavened with some very potent humor (personally, I’m going to see Justice League for Aquaman’s somewhat flip attitude and zest for battle, alongside The Flash’s geeky awe and enthusiasm).

Justice league opens on November 17th.
