It's a big day for movie trailers, and for this one we're looking ahead until February of the year 2019. The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part takes things from the Mad Max-eque apocalypse that followed the events of "Taco Tuesday" and blasts off for some intergalactic adventure (soundtracked by the Beastie Boys, of course). Crank it up!
As the finger-snappin', toe-tappin' sound of Bobby Darin's "Beyond the Sea" sets the tone, the first trailer for the long-awaited big-screen adaptation of Steve Alten's MEG has finally arrived. This August, Warner Bros. Pictures will release THE MEG, a film that's finally a reality after nearly two decades of studio-spanning "development Hell." Shark movies are a genre all their own, and while it's my wife that's the big JAWS fan and Shark Week enthusiast in this house, I am 100% in for anything starring Jason Statham, so this just hit my "must-see" list. Check out your first bite of THE MEG below!
As a new trailer was recently released for 2018's refreshed take on the TOMB RAIDER franchise, many were curious not about the visuals - but about the song. Continuing a trend of slowed-down, haunting versions of famous pop songs in trailers and commercials (and it's a growing list), this time around it's "Survivor," the 2001 hit by DESTINY'S CHILD getting the re-working. With the socials lighting up to locate the artist, we now have the answer: 2WEI. The German duo is responsible for the music heard in many movies, trailers and commercials, and their cover of "Survivor" is just the latest to gain attention. Stream the track and see the new trailer below, then look for 2WEI's version to hit Spotify very soon... They say it's Beyonce-approved!"

It was just within the last year or so that our daughters really discovered and became fans of Teen Titans GO! on Cartoon Network, and for me - a lifelong fan of DC Comics - it's been entertaining to see a new spin on some old characters, along with a bunch of new ones. Now, as much of the DC universe starts to cross-over into live-action film (or television), the Teen Titans are starting to feel a little left out. After all, if Aquaman and Shazam! can get their own films, why not this crew? It's pretty "meta," but that's exactly what they start to question in the teaser trailer for their first big-screen outing, Teen Titans GO! To The Movies, in theaters everywhere from Warner Bros. Pictures on July 27, 2018. Take a look...
Before we go any further, I feel that I must point out the fact that I'm a massive fan of OCEAN'S ELEVEN (2001) and the 1960 film that inspired it, OCEAN'S 11. Back in 2004, one of my many unusual adventures even found me working on the sequel, OCEAN'S TWELVE for one day, where I played a bartender (cut from the film) pouring drinks for Andy Garcia and his crew. Those films and their look inspired me so much, that I borrowed some of he slick vibe to inform my crime-horror project DEATH WALKS THE STREETS (which has always been intended to be a film series). All that said, the idea of an OCEAN'S sequel or spin-off has long-been intriguing, and now we have one in OCEAN'S 8. Directed by Gary Ross (The Hunger Games), the new film stars Sandra Bullock as Debbie Ocean, sister of George Clooney's Danny Ocean, alongside a crew that includes Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter.
