Most outlets now claim the trailer will hit online soon after.

OPENING THIS WEEK

Deepwater Horizon – Based on the true events that occurred on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010, the story chronicles the courage of those who worked on the Deepwater Horizon and the extreme moments of bravery and survival in the face of what would become one of the biggest man-made disasters in world history.

Masterminds – David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) is stuck in the monotony of driving an armored truck day in and day out, so when his work crush lures him into the heist of a lifetime, David’s all in. Despite a pack of harebrained bandits and an absurdly flawed plan, David manages to steal $17 million, and promptly hands it over to the gang — who just as promptly double-cross him. Forced to go on the lam, David must dodge the authorities and a hit man, and try to turn the tables on his untrustworthy comrades.

Filming of Spider-Man: Homecoming has moved from Atlanta, Georgia to Peter Parker’s hometown of Queens, New York and now, a new rumor claims the film might feature yet another previously unreported villain — Nightwatch. According to Bleeding Cool, Sony employees have begun buying up any and all comic books that feature Nightwatch which, in the past, and as the cite notes, has usually indicated that a character is planned for an upcoming movie. Marvel has not confirmed the character so this is just a rumor as of now. Spider-Man Homecoming is set to hit theatres on July 7th, 2017.

According to a report from THR, Blue Sky Animation, the company behind the Ice Age franchise and the most recent The Peanuts adaptation, will produce a musical adaptation of Garth Nix’s upcoming book Frogkisser, a new take on the Princess and the Frog fairy tale. The film is reported to be a hybrid of live-action and animation, which will follow Princess Anya, who has the “unfortunate ability to break curses with a magic-assisted kiss.” No release date has been set.

According to THR, Open Road Films and the filmmakers behind Max Steel have lost their bid for a kid-friendly PG rating, with the movie going out with a PG-13 rating when it opens in theaters October 14. The Classification and Ratings Administration upheld the PG-13 rating after a hearing Wednesday in Los Angeles for “some sci-fi action violence.”

Hey guys!

Love your shiz and hope your day is going smooth.

So now we know that Nick Fury is coming back for Infinity War, and that’s awesome, but what if they mirror Coulsen’s sacrifice in the first Avengers, kill him off, and that’s what brings the Avengers together again to fight Thanos? It would be oddly poetic and could lead in to other organizations arising, a passing of old Avengers trust issues to new heroes with eagerness to help, and definitively end a decade of Marvel cinematic adventures. I remember Mark Ellis even saying that in this day and age, no one would actually trust SHIELD anymore, and that’s what Fury is famous for.

Hey Collider, how’s it going?! I’m a big fan, I love your shows and I look forward to them every week!

Last week when John Campea said that he’d defecate himself if he saw Luke v Knights of Ren, it got me thinking… There are have been some movie scenes that I’ve seen that have made me (figuratively) poop my pants, but it wasn’t out of excitement. Since I don’t watch scary movies (my kryptonite), I don’t get scared too much when watching movies, but there have been some non-horror movie scenes that have had me want to relive myself right on my couch.  My question is: What are some non-horror movie scenes that scared the living daylights out of you? Thanks for taking my question, hope you all have and amazing week!!
