New Secret Invasion trailer makes Nick Fury a wanted man in the MCU

In Spider-Man: No Way Home, there was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment where it was revealed that Nick Fury’s absence from Earth is known among Damage Control’s agents. And the last time we saw Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in Spider-Man: Far From Home, he was somewhere out in space with the Skrulls enjoying a vacation of sorts. But the vacation is over in the upcoming series, Secret Invasion. In the latest trailer for the series, Fury is not only back on Earth, but he’s also the most wanted man in the world!

Why is Fury being hunted? It might have something to do with the final moments of the trailer where Fury, or a Skrull pretending to be Fury, appears to be in the process of assassinating President Ritson (Dermot Mulroney). If it’s really Fury, that means the Skrulls replaced the President. And if it’s a Skrull posing as Fury, then they’ve found the perfect way to destroy any remaining credibility that Fury had with the authorities.

Gravik (Kingsley Ben-Adir) makes several appearances in the trailer, and he’s the key figure behind this invasion. Gravik and G’iah (Emilia Clarke) are Skrulls who grew up as refugees that were promised a new home at the end of Captain Marvel. That was three decades ago within the MCU, and the Skrulls are not pleased. They want their own world, and they’ve decided that Earth should belong to them. That makes this Fury’s war, but we have to question why he isn’t calling in “his special friends” to help take care of this problem.

Ben Mendelsohn also stars in the series as Fury’s closest friend among the Skrulls, Talos, with Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill, Olivia Colman as Sonya Falsworth, Martin Freeman as Everett K. Ross, and Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes.

Secret Invasion will premiere on Disney+ on Wednesday, June 21.

Women take on gun violence with no-sex oath in the new trailer for Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq
amazon chi raq trailer chiraq youtube

With Amazon Studios' first original movie, Chi-Raq, due to hit theaters in December, the first trailer was released Tuesday. The film, which features a star-studded cast, is directed by critically acclaimed filmmaker Spike Lee.

Chi-Raq is a modern adaptation of the Greek comedy Lysistrata by Aristophanes, and it also satirizes the city of Chicago's rampant gun violence. In fact, the movie's title is a nickname often used by Southside residents, blending the name of their city with that of Iraq to comment on the level of danger. After flashing "This is an emergency" multiple times at the beginning of the trailer, a voiceover tells us that "homicides in Chicago, Illinois, have surpassed the death toll of American special forces in Iraq." The preview gets more lighthearted from there, but the message is clear throughout.

Colin Firth Kicks ass in <em>Kingsman: The Secret Service</em>
kingsman the secret service movie review 06

"If you're prepared to learn and advance, you can transform."
The gallant secret agent Harry Hart (Colin Firth) offers this advice early on in Kingsman: The Secret Service, during a conversation with Gary "Eggsy" Unwin (Taron Egerton), a London street-tough in desperate need of some new circumstances. Eggsy comes from a household with an abusive step-father, an unlucky mother, and an even less fortunate infant sister. He's the de facto man of the house, even if he spends his time causing problems in bars, stealing cars, and spending nights in the slammer.
