The Marvels new trailer
The Marvels will be the next major Marvel film released and the latest trailer has just been released.
Reintroducing audiences to Carol Danvers, a.k.a Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), The Marvels will bring together Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), and Kamala Khan/ Ms Marvel (Iman Vellani) from their respective series.
The movie is set to advance the story of the MCU that is heading towards the next big bad of Kang, with this trio exploring their connection to each other through their powers.
The Marvels is set to hit cinema screens on 10th November.
England’s Crawley runs riot in The Ashes
England were looking at their absolute best on day two of the fourth Ashes test, taking out Australia’s remaining two wickets to take the strike themselves.
Once they did, they never looked back. Zak Crawley was in the form of his life, getting 189 runs from 182 balls and propelling England to pass Australia’s score.
They will head into the third day still on strike at 384/4, and with Ben Stokes in now and Jonny Bairstow still to come, they’re more than likely to go aggressive and give Australia as tough a time as possible when they come back in the second innings.
It was the best they have looked all series by far and it gives the home fans strong hope that they can take it to the fifth test, and hopefully then get the job done.
The Ashes is shown exclusively on Sky Sports. Be sure to check out the latest Sky Sports deals to get set up to catch the rest of the series.
Borderlands movie gets release date
The semi-highly anticipated Borderlands movie has been given an official release of 9th August 2024.
The film will feature big-name stars such as Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Cate Blanchet, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Fans of the popular Borderlands video game series seem divided in their excitement for the film. On the one hand, it's cool to see them bringing the series to life on the big screen, but it is hard to see how they will be able to do the games justice given the rocky past of video game movie adaptions.
Formula 1 Hungarian GP mini preview
Formula 1 is in Budapest this weekend for the Hungarian Grand Prix, the final race before the summer break.
After a brilliant Silverstone GP, anticipation is high for this weekend. Upgrades are slated to come for multiple teams, including another hopeful step forward for Mercedes as well as an upgrade package for Red Bull to make them even quicker.
The Hungaroring is a popular track amongst the drivers, particularly Lewis Hamilton, who has a track record eight wins there. He will most definitely be hoping that Merc's upgrades will take them closer to Red Bull once again so he can challenge for another win.
However, that won’t be easy at all with RB bringing an upgrade package to the weekend themselves that is said to gain them an extra two-tenths, meaning they will just extend their lead ahead of the pack even more.
You can catch the race and all races this season exclusively on Sky Sports.
