Happy New Year, film lovers! Hopefully y’all had a chance to catch up on this last year’s cinematic offerings over the holiday break, including the wonderful Doctor Strange.

As those of us who saw Doctor Strange discovered in the film’s mid-credits stinger, the superhero sorcerer will indeed play a role in reuniting Thor with his estranged brother Loki in Thor: Ragnarok. But we now hear that that role may be even bigger than we at first imagined, per a new description of the film on Disney’s D23 website: “Thor: Ragnarok in November brings together Thor, the Hulk, and Doctor Strange to face off against intergalactic baddies both familiar and new.” So does this mean that instead of a mere cameo appearance we’ll actually get to see Benedict Cumberbatch’s Strange in combat alongside Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk? It sure as hell sounds like it!

Beauty and the Beast

Hot on the heels of the video we saw of Hogwarts graduate Emma Watson singing “Something There” in the live-action Beauty and the Beast comes two more promos offering fresh footage of Watson’s heroine Belle in the Beast’s castle, alongside some of his enchanted servants. Feast your eyes on the following TV spots, appropriately titled “Be Our Guest” and “You Can Talk”…


Cars 3

Hey, speaking of Disney TV promos, a new television commercial is teasing that the first trailer for Pixar’s Cars 3 will appear during the College Football Playoff National Championship game on January 9th. As for which teams will be playing in that event, well, since I’ve never actually seen a football game in my entire life, I’m probably the wrong person to ask.


A Cure for Wellness

Director Gore Verbinski’s return to big-screen horror, A Cure for Wellness, is looking creepier by the minute, even as it celebrates the New Year in its latest advert. Take a peek at the following promo, which encourages us to “take the cure” in 2017…


Fifty Shades Darker

And since we’re talking about creepiness, another new TV ad shows entrepreneur Christian Grey’s reckless past coming back to haunt him and endanger his relationship with Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker. Go on, give it a watch — this is a safe space…

Finally today, 20th Century Fox gets the award for Most Innovative Movie Marketing Thus Far in 2017 with a cool publicity stunt for Hugh Jackman’s farewell to Wolverine in James Mangold’s Logan. Last week, the studio gave away 1,974 frames from the film’s upcoming final trailer in the form of postcards to fans who signed up to receive them via Upon receiving the images, the fans are expected to share them online before the trailer debuts. Why 1,974, you ask? Because 1974 the year that ol’ Wolvie first appeared, in the pages of The Incredible Hulk #181.
