Tom Hiddleston’s Loki is likely the most popular villain in all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  So a Loki series–coming soon to pay streaming provider Disney+, makes a lot of sense.  But why haven’t we seen more of what it will be about?  A new trailer Disney released this weekend gives a glimpse at the next three TV series for Marvel after winding down all its popular series at Netflix.  This one features WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki Each series is slated to have six episodes, so basically audiences will get three feature-length movies released in six parts, to maximize Disney streaming revenues.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, to star Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, gets some more screen time in this trailer than Loki, but not much.  An odd team-up, it will be interesting to see if Disney can make this into something other than a bridge between the different phases of the Marvel movies.

Although we love seeing co-star Elizabeth Olsen in her traditional Scarlet Witch comic book outfit (above), we must ask: what audience is WandaVision aimed at?  This first real look at the show, still only a peek, makes it appear like a cross between I Dream of Jeanie and Bewitched.  The character Vision (played by Paul Bettany) died in the movies.  Black Widow died, too, and she’s getting a full-length film, but it’s already been explained hers an early story and she’s a major character (so it’s about time).  But Wanda and Vision in a sitcom?

Take a look at this preview for all three shows and see what you think:

It’s that time of year again–and with the end of football season come some new movie spots.  In case you missed them yesterday on the big 900-years-in-the-making Palindrome Day (02/02/2020), you’ll find the latest below.

Check ’em all out below:

It may be one of the most beloved movies of all time.  And you can’t get through the holiday without watching it at least once.  It’s the late comedy genius Harold Ramis’s Groundhog Day, and 27 years after the movie first put us through hundreds of timeloops, this Groundhog Day the one and only Bill Murray made his return as the perpetual weatherman Phil Connors.  Despite the ending of the movie, he found his way to being unstuck in time again, thanks to a commercial for Jeep for today’s Super Bowl.

Joining Phil in Punxsutawney, PA, again is insurance salesman Ned Ryerson (Stephen Tobolowsky) and townie Buster Green, played again by Murray’s brother Brian Doyle-Murray.

The best part?  Murray looks like he’s having a blast, unlike his frustrated character in the movie.  Which is the point of the commercial.

Check it out!

Yes, a tricked-out, revved-up Pontiac Fiero is cool.

As movie trailers go, if you’re a fan of the Fast & Furious series, it can’t get much better than the new nearly four-minute trailer for F9: The Fast Saga.  The film is the tenth in the franchise and ninth in the main storyline following Vin Diesel’s action hero car driver Dominic Toretto.  Diesel returns with all the major players from the last film, 2017’s The Fate of the Furious: Michelle Rodriguez’s Letty Ortiz (who already died once in the series), Jordana Brewster as Dom’s sister Mia, Tyrese Gibson as Rome Pearce, Ludacris as Tej Parker, plus Charlize Theron (sporting a Seven of Nine vibe with that earring) as Cipher, the franchise’s ultimate villain.

There’s been nothing definitive released yet about the next return of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham after last year’s hit tie-in film, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.  But Helen Mirren, who played Shaw’s mom, will be back in the new film and is featured in the first trailer for F9: The Fast Saga (below).

Surprise sibling trope alert!  New to the series is a surprise for fans of the series, a brother to Dom played by John Cena.  And good news: Lucas Black is back as Sean Boswell (we haven’t seen him in the series since Furious 7) and, after an even longer break from the series, look for Sung Kang’s surprise return as Han Lue, who we haven’t seen since he was supposedly killed by Shaw in Fast & Furious 6 (it’s not a spoiler if it’s in the trailer!).

Here is the great, new, over-the-top (and we love it that way) first trailer for F9: The Fast Saga:
