I feel like action might be happening...maybe?

This morning the final trailer dropped for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, featuring a deeper look at Batman’s stake in this fight. At least, I think that’s what’s happening. It’s hard to tell when you literally can’t see what’s happening, save when an explosion lights up the screen. This is a superhero movie, turn on the lights! We shouldn't be squinting to figure out who is punching who or where which character is.

Danny McBride in 'Alien: Covenant'? You're not dreaming

Alien: Covenant is in "early discussions" with an unlikely new actor: Eastbound & Down star Danny McBride, known to fans of the HBO comedy series as former Major League Baseball player Kenny Powers.

Like desperate First Order troopers crash landed on a desert planet searching for water, Star Wars fans are thirsty for any news related to Rogue One. And much like the desert planet metaphor, there’s just enough to keep us from dying…but not enough to feel full.

Today’s drop of life-giving Rogue One waters comes from the movie’s IMDB page.

Play ‘Where’s Dory?’ with 4 new gorgeous ‘Finding Dory’ posters

Finding Nemo is my favorite Pixar film, in large part thanks to the mesmerizingly gorgeous seascape created by Pixar’s animation wizards. I’m stoked to return to this beautifully crafted reef in Finding Dory, and the four new posters released for the movie today have me all the more excited to see this colorful, textured world on the big screen again. Seriously, these are movie posters I’d consider getting framed and hung on my wall.

Also: You can play a fun game of “Where’s Dory?” with these posters, albeit a game that’s a bit easier than “Where’s Waldo?” Dory probably has a harder time finding herself than we do.

Finding Dory — which reunites Dory with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past — opens in theaters on June 17, 2016. Ellen DeGeneres is returning to voice our favorite forgetful blue tang.

Take a look at the posters below and click on any of them to see a larger version.

This one's just plain crazy, and that's exactly what the filmmaker intended

By far, the most aggressive film I saw at last year's Toronto film festival was a first-person action film that felt unlike anything else screening at the entire event.

Since then, it's been retitled and now you can get your first look at the official trailer for Hardcore Henry tonight, and it's every bit as lunatic as the film itself. I spoke to writer/director Ilya Naishuller this week about how things have unfolded for him and his movie since STX Entertainment picked it up for release.

People just can't get enough of Deadpool. The character is somehow both wildly popular and divisive amongst comic book fans.

Here, Eric Eisenberg and Roth Cornet look back on the character's history and what makes him so dynamic.

Take a look in the player above or our full Deadpool show below, where we predict why this film will be the one to break the R-rated comic book movie cure and how Deadpool will fit into the larger X-Men universe.

In September 1997, 28-year-old X-Files star Gillian Anderson took out full-page ads in both The Hollywood Reporter and Daily Variety thanking the cast and crew of her mega-hit FOX series after neglecting to mention creator Chris Carter, the show's writers and, most glaringly, co-star David Duchovny during her acceptance speech at the Emmys earlier that week. The E! Online rundown of the kerfuffle is particularly harsh in its assessment of the actress:

Lost 'Mrs. Doubtfire' scenes prove it is Robin Williams' most emotional movie

That movie about Robin Williams dancing to "Dude Looks Like a Lady" was secretly brutal.
Mrs Doubtfire

I tend to remember the 1993 comedy Mrs. Doubtfire thanks to its flashy trailers, which included Robin Williams vacuuming saucily in schoolmarm drag while "Dude Looks Like a Lady" played. Though he was disguising himself as a woman in order to hang out with his kids amid a bad divorce, I tend to look back on the movie's slapstick moments most of all.
