  • Beyond Star Wars, if you are a Neil Blomkamp fan, you might watch to check out his short film Firebase which tells the beginning of a story set in Vietnam about a soldier going up against the River God. I got sucked into it and have to admit it was pretty neat, but it is a little gory.

  • The trailer for The Foreigner looks pretty good. It’ll be out in October.

  • And then there’s two new trailers for Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle which actually looks really fun.
