If you’re a fan of the Robert Ludlum/Tom Clancy military espionage thriller genre of novels, you may have discovered Vince Flynn when his literary career took off in the late 1990’s. His main protagonist, Mitch Rapp, is a really interesting creation and I always enjoyed the series which is now being continued by author Kyle Mills since Flynn’s tragic death at only 47. American Assassin is chronologically the first novel in the Rapp series, and the first trailer for the film adaptation starring Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner) and Michael Keaton is impressive and looks like it could be something to liven up the traditional doldrums of September when it debuts on September 15, 2017.
Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week. F8 has three new challengers to its reign, but nothing is going to stop its reign atop the box office this week or next. It’s going to take a couple Guardians of the Galaxy to stop them.

At Star Wars Celebration, as expected, it was officially announced that the upcoming fourth season of Star Wars: Rebels will be its last and the first trailer for that final season was unveiled.

Harrison Ford has created some of the most indelible characters in screen history: Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Rick Deckard, John Book, and owning existing characters like Dr. Richard Kimble or Jack Ryan. His legacy as one of Hollywood’s greatest action stars is already cemented (though his abilities as an actor are seriously underrated; one needs only watch Witness or 42 to see how good he can be). Defying age, Ford is making a farewell tour of the most iconic of his creations, cementing their legacy. He’s already given Han Solo his tragic end. This year he’ll return to Blade Runner, then it’s on to fix the damage to Indiana Jones that Crystal Skull inflicted. Whether those attempts succeed as well as The Force Awakens did, Ford’s place as a legend is already secure.

The original Star Wars Battlefront games had single player modes that were integral to the enjoyment of the game, and DICE made a big mistake omitting a campaign from its revival of the franchise. Normally video game trailers don’t come on the site until launch, but we are all Star Wars geeks, and Star Wars video games are canon now (the first Battlefront is how the brought back Boba Fett post ROTJ). This campaign reveal looks amazingly epic, spanning the destruction of the second Death Star to the rise of The First Order. I was not pleased with the multiplayer-only first installment, but this trailer has me changing my mind. Read more below from Coming Soon for all the details.
