Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the latest in the Tom Cruise-starring franchise, starts off fast, sets its hooks, and hurtles you forward. The continually escalating mayhem propels the film past any of the otherwise glaring plot holes, and the action is fast and chaotic enough to gloss over how ludicrous the plot actually is. Full of big, boisterous action, one of Hollywood’s biggest superstars, and crazy-ass stunts, Rogue Nation is a damn entertaining ride.

Over the years I’ve had a trouble relationship with AMC’s mega hit zombie drama The Walking Dead, to say the least. I’ve been a huge fan of Robert Kirkman’s comics since day one, but season 3 sucked so bad I almost stopped watching. But they righted the ship, especially starting with the second half of season 4, and I’m actually looking forward to the upcoming season 6. That said, some details have emerged, as well as photos of new characters.
A few years back, I spent Christmas Day watching all four of the Tremors movies, as well as most of the short-lived series. It’s safe to say that I’m a fan, and as such, you’re damn right I’m pumped up for Tremors 5: Bloodlines. If you’re not, check out this new trailer and you will be.

Anytime Syfy greenlights an awesome sounding TV show, I have to take it with a grain of salt. They don’t have the greatest track record of late. The Expanse is based on one of the best sci-fi books I’ve read in recent years, so I’m trying to be optimistic. And now they’ve given the go ahead to another promising series, Blood Drive, a ‘70s-inspired, grindhouse-esque show about a badass car race.

Denis Villenueve’s (Prisoners) Sicario is one we’re definitely stoked for, and it was just announced that it will make it’s North American debut at the Toronto International Film Festival in early September (yet another year I wish I was going to TIFF). To go along with that bit of news, they dropped a grim, tense new trailer for what looks like a grim, tense movie. Check it out below.

You may or may not have noticed, but Mad Max: Fury Road is one of my favorite movies of the year—maybe number one, easily top five (and I hate ranking movies). After tear-assing through theaters worldwide, it’s getting ready to wreak havoc on home video, and to mark the occasion, Warner Bros. released this new Blu-ray trailer.

It may not be as good, overall, as The Hunger Games, but the first installment of The Maze Runner series is entertaining, if a little light, and a damn sight better than either of the Divergent movies. The second chapter, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials is on its way later this year, and they just dropped and action-heavy new trailer. I’m not going to like, it looks a little like Terminator meets The Goonies. Check it out below.
