The New Orleans-shot ABC drama follows the lives of the women who support their astronaut husbands during the 1960’s epic space race. ABC has just announced that the premiere will launch Thursday, June 18. The Astronaut Wives Club was shot at Quixote Studios in New Orleans.

The wives of these scientists turned rockstars include JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Yvonne Strahovski and Odette Annable. The ABC series will also star Desmond Harrington, Bret Harrison and Wilson Bethel. JoAnna Garcia Swisher will re-team with writers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz as the three worked on Gossip Girl for a brief stint.

The out-of-this-world drama is penned by Gossip Girl creator Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, as mentioned before. It’s based on the best-selling novel from Lily Koppel. Danish filmmaker Lon Sherfig will direct the series. Visit the show’s official website here.

The Baton Rouge-shot superhero flick shows us the true origins of the Four’s friendships and the birth of their powers. Tim Blake Nelson starts the trailer out by scolding Dr. Storm for spending millions of dollars without turning a profit or any valuable ideas. Dr. Storm, played by House of Cards star Reg E. Cathey, says that the future is bright with the addition of Reed Richards.

Miles Teller plays Reed Richards and I’m already a fan of his contagious nerd-isms. We see the Four’s relationships forming right before our eyes. We also find out that Kate Mara, Sue Storm, is the daughter of Dr. Storm and sister of Johnny Storm played by Michael B. Jordan. The Thing, played by Jamie Bell, will provide muscle and won’t let any of the other lab coats bully Richard Reed, it’s cool to see their polar opposite attitudes form an admirable relationship.

Reed Richards seems to form great relationships with each member of the Fantastic Four and he shows that he is a born leader. He is smart, courageous, loyal and wishes to get his friends back to normal. Fortunately, Johnny Storm wishes to use their powers to help people and save the world from Doom. Doctor Doom.

We finally get the much anticipated arrival of Doctor Doom. He looks evil, metallic, menacing and sports an incredible hoody. We traverse dimensions with the four (actually five, but it seems that the one dude will die on the journey) and we enter the world where inhabited by Doctor Doom.

A major plus for me as a viewer is the comedy and chemistry the cast has on screen together. Miles Teller seems to have the nerd comedy beats down to a science (pun intended!). He, along with Michael B. Jordan have a couple of sequences together that are sure to generate chuckles throughout the theater, the classic fist bump mishap for example. We also catch a budding kindergarten-like flirtatious love interest between Reed Richards and Sue Storm.

Aaron Williamson will play a Navy Seal in Fantastic Four. Read Aaron’s Health Scene column here. Check out some recent photos of Fantastic Four here. Fantastic Four flies into theaters August 7. Directed by Josh Trank, this re-imagining looks to be a thrill ride.

TRAILER: ‘Jurassic World’ Looks Out of This World

by Jordan McGuire on April 20, 2015

Holy Stegosaurus! Dinos are getting crazy on Isla Nublar. The raptor squad is in full effect. Chris Pratt talks dirty to Bryce Dallas Howard and his raptors are prepared to help save the day. Vincent D’Onofrio is incredibly doubtful, ladies are getting snatched up by soaring pterodactyls and a genetically mutated dinosaur. This trailer looks awesome, if a bit spoilery.

BD Wong also returns! He stars along with Irfan Kahn, Jake Johnson, Judy Green, Omar Sy, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins. BD Wong is seen explaining that the dinosaur was designed to be bigger than the T-Rex. We also see the aquatic dino exhibit that looks to be the coolest aquarium exhibit ever. This beast leaps from under water and snatches its prey as one of the park’s newest attractions. This underwater beast looks to be the reincarnation of the Titanoboa mixed with massive crocodile genes.

After all of the attractions are contained, nothing would ever go wrong in this park, right? Oh no, sir. You would be certainly wrong as we discover that the genetically mutated mega beast of a dinosaur has eaten its own sibling, has escaped containment and now has manually extracted her honing device from her own flesh.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the gates of Jurassic World will open in theaters June 12. Also check out Scene’s exclusive interview with Jurassic World actor James DuMont here and Courtney Clark here.

We’ve also got photos from Isla Nublar here. Also, visit the film’s official website here.
