We’ll be able to get our hands on Marvel’s Netflix Luke Cage as early as this Friday, but who couldn’t do with one last trailer? The third Defender series’ musical influence is more center stage than ever in the latest look, as Luke Cage even meets Method Man on one of his heroic deeds.
In interviews, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller talked about wanting to show his movie in black-and-white. In a conversation with director Edgar Wright, he explained that “the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There’s only two ways to go, make them black and white — the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now.” There were rumblings of a theatrical release of a black-and-white Fury Road, but that never came to pass. But the monochromatic print (heavy on the chrome, in this case) of the movie is coming to Blu-ray, and you’ll be able to get it before the end of the year.
If Luke Cage fans had to pick one standout moment from the trailer, it would likely be that of the third Defender outfitted to look like his classic comic appearance, tiara and all. As it turns out, we’ll see a whole new side of Luke Cage come September 30, as the latest featurette reveals a bit of Cage’s origin, including some very questionable wigs.

Fox Searchlight’s awards season plans for The Birth of a Nation have grown increasingly complicated in recent weeks, as reports surfaced revealing that the director and star of the historical drama has a troubled history of his own. Although details of Nate Parker’s alleged involvement and subsequent acquittal in a 1999 sexual assault was available to the public (it’s on his Wikipedia page) before the studio acquired the rights to distribute the Sundance hit, it was only recently that the case became a point of controversy. Despite all of this, according to Fox Searchlight, their plans to release the film in October have not changed.
