Watch This Clip From The Bruce Willis-Starring Sexbot Thriller Vice

Put Bruce Willis in anything even remotely action-oriented and I’m there. You want to add a sci-fi edge to said movie? Even better. And that’s exactly what we’re getting, plus a healthy dose of debauchery, with the upcoming thriller Vice. We’ve seen a trailer, and a photo with shaggy-haired Thomas Jane, who also stars, but as the January 16 release date approaches, now we have this new clip for you to peruse.

Willis plays Julian Michaels, some kind of slick scientist/businessman type who has created the ultimate resort, a place called Vice. At least that’s what he shows on the surface, you can tell there’s some shady shit going on. Anything goes in Vice, as the wealthy clientele is free to indulge their wildest, most base desires and fantasies with robots that look, think, and feel like humans. In this way it sounds very similar to the upcoming HBO series Westworld, among others.

Marvel’s Ant-Man Unveils This Human-Sized Preview Of The Full Trailer

The other day Marvel gave us our first look at their upcoming Ant-Man adaptation, sort of. They released an “ant-sized” sneak peek at the upcoming trailer (or the upcoming “full teaser” as they’re calling it, whatever the hell that means), which was funny, but mostly just led to a glut of super fuzzed out blow-ups and lots of squinting. But now they’ve made it easier for fans and their eyesight by unveiling this “human-sized” version of the very same preview.

As you probably guessed, this being essentially a trailer for the trailer, there isn’t a ton here—the real deal drops on January 6 during the premiere of Marvel’s Agent Carter—but it gives you a few quick glimpses and sets the overall tone. I love Paul Rudd and will watch anything he does, and I know he’s done some more straight roles recently, but I’m really curious to see if I can take him seriously as a superhero. I know there is bound to be some humor, but when I see that shot of him looking super grim-faced and being escorted by the law…

The Guardians Of The Galaxy Crew Takes A Selfie With Howard The Duck

Howard the Duck Guardians of the GalaxyHoward the Duck got a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy, so it only seems fair to return the favor, right? At least in comic book form. He’s taking time out of his busy schedule to pose for a selfie with the mismatched crew of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot, though he doesn’t seem too pleased to be sharing the spotlight in his very own title.

Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso tweeted out this art created by Joe Quinones, which is apparently the cover for the second issue of the soon-to-launch Howard the Duck comic. And it’s kind of perfect, as they’re all trying to make duck faces, some better than other. Drax is certainly having some issues wrapping his literal-leaning brain around the idea, but that’s part of why we love him.

Watch The Battle Of Endor From Return Of The Jedi Without Those Ewoks

There aren’t many things in the Star Wars universe quite as divisive as the Ewoks in Return of the Jedi. Jar Jar Binks is more or less universally reviled, but those furry little buggers from Endor create conflicts that threaten to tear families apart. A lot of people who saw the original trilogy at a young age didn’t have an issue with them early on, but have grown increasingly irritated with them over the years. This video that has been making the rounds shows what that epic space battle at the end of Jedi would look like without constantly cutting away to the action back on the forest moon.

This HD video from Prometheus4vids is indeed rather awesome, but if you’re thinking to yourself that the action will be a little awkward and bumpy without any of the scenes from Endor, you’re definitely right. Not only are many of the jumps where there is originally a cutaway to Han, Leia, and the crew on the surface clunky and awkward with no transition, but there are big narrative leaps as well, like the force field is magically down for no real reason.

This Helix Season 2 Trailer Trades The Arctic Confines For An Isolated Island

Ronald D. Moore’s plague thriller Helix is now just about two weeks away from kicking off its second season on Syfy. This time they’re changing out the ice-bound environs of the Arctic Circle for a remote forest island, though as you can clearly see in this new trailer, the heroes’ situation is no less perilous and full of danger. Hell, this time around it might even be creepier.

Despite the change in venue, shifting to the Lost looking island, the set up appears to be rather similar. They’re in a remote, isolated location where a viral outbreak is running rampant. And, of course, there’s more going on than the team from the CDC initially sees. Just in case you didn’t notice that, one character’s voice over tells you that this island is not what it appears to be. It will be interesting to see how this new set up connects to the last, and how the events at Arctic Biosystems from season one will inform things now that we’re getting a wider view of this particular world.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: Check Out This Redesigned TIE Fighter

TIE FIghterAs far as characters go, the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer sticks with the new kids on the block, offering fans our first look at Finn (John Boyega), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), BB-8, and Kylo Ren. None of the returning fan favorites like Luke, Leia, or Han, are anywhere to be seen, but we already know a lot about them, so no big loss. We do, however, get a look at some familiar spaceships. The Millennium Falcon soars around as she does, and while the X-Wings are readily identifiable as such, they definitely got a makeover, though they’re not the only ones. A few TIE Fighters can be seen zipping around the Falcon, but some concept art has surfaced showing off a new redesign that throws a wrinkle into the proceedings and raises some questions.

Check out the leaked image over at Indie Revolver, and what you see is definitely not your standard TIE Fighter. This looks more like something an officer or dignitary travels in rather than one of the small, agile crafts that are out there in the middle of the shit, dogfighting with X-Wings and the like. It just looks bigger and less agile, more like a transport vehicle than a fighter. That said, it still doesn’t look like anything you want to mess with if you have the choice.
