Movie Trailer: Captain Marvel (2019)

Skrulls. Kree. Oh my! Earth being stuck in the middle of two alien races doing battle is bad, but adding Ronan the Destroyer (remember him from “Guardians of the Galaxy”?) into the mix makes the situation even worse.

In fact, it’s like American Beauty…

Movie Review: Mother and Child (2009)
