Honest Trailers: The Incredible Hulk

HONEST TRAILERS: THE INCREDIBLE HULK Since “Black Panther” isn’t on DVD yet, this week, in honor of the release of “Avengers: Infinity War,” Honest Trailers does “The Incredible Hulk,” the only other MCU film that haven’t done yet.

New Trailer: Venom – Official Trailer #2

VENOM My personal biases keep me from being able to enjoy these trailers for the new Spider-Man (without actually having Spider-Man) villain stand-alone movie, “Venom.” First of all, Sony Pictures comes off to me as one of the biggest production companies to not know what the hell they are doing when it comes to producing. Films like “Ghostbusters” and the last run of “Spider-Man” … Read More New Trailer: Venom – Official Trailer #2

“A Quiet Place” comes back after one week to take back the crown from “Rampage” with $20.9 million while the Dwayne Johnson runner-up narrowly missed two weeks as champ by less than $1 million.

Theatrical Releases: I Feel Pretty & Super Troopers 2

I FEEL PRETTY || Amy Schumer returns with her distinctive self-deprecating humor with “I Feel Pretty,” where she basically plays herself, a normal looking, slightly pudgy female who gets hit on the head and wakes up with confidence because she sees herself as a model. Also starring Michelle Williams, Busy Phillips, and Ratajkowski, the film looks too much like Schumer’s normal schtick and despite … Read More Theatrical Releases: I Feel Pretty & Super Troopers 2
