Coming Soon Trailers: Into the Spider-Verse, The Mule, Mortal Engines.
Spider-Man looks to swing into a big weekend with the much anticipated Into the Spider-Verse leading the new releases.
The top three movies have been dominated by animated films lately, which should continue this weekend with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. After a week with no new wide releases, we get three big hitters this weekend. Mortal Engines is trying to be the latest young adult lit adaptation to catch fire, and Clint Eastwood is looking for one last
Oscar score in his drama The Mule. The video on demand market is also lively this week. Nine new releases hit the streaming market, including a return of the horrifically silly icon, The Leprechaun.
Oh, and Deadpool is back with a Christmas flavored, PG-13 version of his hilariously raunchy sequel.

After a devastating war that caused a geological catastrophe, humanity has taken refuge in giant mobile cities. These gargantuan tanks scour the land for resources, occasionally eating smaller cities in the process. This especially is true of London, the larges mobile fort, run by a megalomaniacal Mayor and a scheming guild leader (Hugo Weaving.) A young woman (Hera Hilmar) whose mother was killed by the guild leader has come to London to assassinate him, and to stop the giant city before it can chew its way through the wall erected by the free peoples of the Anti-Traction League.
