On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (December 9th, 2016) John Campea, Dennis Tzeng, Perri Nemiroff, John Rocha, Sinead DeVries, and Wendy Lee discuss the following:

20th Century Fox has unveiled the first trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes, the third film in the “rebooted” prequel series following Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Matt Reeves returns to direct, with a story that picks up two years after Andy Serkis’ Caesar battled amongst the apes thanks to the radical Koba. The story now continues in the thick of a war between the apes and humans. The film also stars Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn and Judy Greer. War for the Planet of the Apes opens in theaters on July 14, 2017.

Sony Pictures has released the first Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer, offering our very first look at the Marvel and Sony co-production. The new film sees Peter Parker (Tom Holland) dealing with the growing pains that come with being a high-school student while also having to fend off supervillains; all while trying to join the Avengers and impress Tony Stark. The film also stars Robert Downey Jr., Marisa Tomei and Michael Keaton. It opens on July 7, 2017.

Via an exclusive from Comicbook.com, a new poster for next year’s Power Rangers has been released online offering our very first look at the Zords. The giant assault vehicles piloted by the Rangers can also combine to form the humanoid robot known as a Megazord. Meanwhile, another image of Rita Repulsa was also tweeted from the official account giving us another look at Elizabeth Banks’ villain. Lionsgate looks as though they will continue to offer up new looks at the movie as we get closer to its March 24, 2017 release.

In an interview with EW, producer Simon Kinberg spoke a bit about the sequel to Deadpool that recently revealed its new director to be John Wick co-director David Leitch. After Tim Miller exited the project over creative differences, fans wondered if the spirit and style from the first movie would be different in the planned follow up. Kinberg put those fears to rest, explaining that Deadpool 2 is aiming to maintain the exact scale of the first film saying that it was tempting to make it bigger in scale but they want to stay true to the first films personality.

The first trailer for Doug Liman‘s The Wall has landed online. The movie centers on two soldiers pinned down in the middle of the desert by an Iraqi sniper with nothing but a crumbling brick wall for cover. The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena and will be released on March 10, 2017.

According to a report from Making Star Wars.Net, it appears that Supreme Leader Snoke, played by Andy Serkis, will be brought to life via a practical effect. The report mentions that for at least part of Episode 8, a seven or eight-foot-tall puppet will be operated by several people in order to get him to walk. If the report turns out to be true it would mark a very different approach to the character who was first brought to life by motion capture technology in The Force Awakens.

According to a recent interview with The Mummy director Alex Kurtzman, there was an original plan to keep a male version of the Mummy villain for the Universal Monsters reboot. It was when Kurtzman saw the post-credits scene featuring a young Apocalypse at the end of X-Men: Days of Future Past where he realized his idea for the design of the Mummy was almost exactly that of Apocalypse. Here’s what Kurtzman told Cinema Blend that when he saw the end of that film, it was the exact same design they had for the Mummy.

Hello Collider

Besides your favorites, how many times would you say you typically rewatch a movie? When you guys do “AMC Rewind”, the panel can go from “That movie is great” to “I don’t remember that”, and whenever Rocha, Perri, and Dennis talk about Transformers, it sounds like the latter two wouldn’t want to waste their time viewing those movies a second time.
