BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
These are the 10 movies on Hollywood’s release schedule that could use a Super Bowl boost. Maybe they aren’t on your radar yet? Maybe a studio showed some footage, and it didn’t go over as well as planned? Super Bowl Sunday could be Salvation Sunday if these films play their cards right.
It doesn’t look like ‘ole Obi-Wan Kenobi will have a role when Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens hits this December. However, Ewan McGregor, who played the younger version of the grizzled Jedi and a veteran of some of the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy’s most seizure-inducing lightsaber battles, has some lightsaber-related criticism on the upcoming film’s most notable new weapon.
It was revealed yesterday that the surprise screening at this year’s Sundance was the Wachowski’s highly anticipated sci-fi film Jupiter Ascending — which is kind of odd because you don’t normally think of a film requiring 3D glasses as the secret screening of Sundance. Nevertheless, this was the first time anyone has seen this film. Unfortunately, the reception was not what Warner Bros. was hoping for (i.e. it was really bad).
Captain America: Civil War was one of the bigger news items to come out of Marvel’s massive announcement of the Phase Three slate. As one of Marvel’s screenwriters reminded us recently, we’ll see the first seeds of discord planted in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Bobby and Peter Farrelly have been joined at the hip since 1994 — cinematically speaking, of course. Their first film together was with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in Dumb and Dumber, and they’ve since gone on to direct eleven feature films. But is it finally time for them to cut the chord and set out to make waves on their own?
We all react to incidents in different ways. But if you’re like Star Wars: Episode 7 director J.J. Abrams, you might turn all this pent-up energy into an emotional speech about how beautiful the moon is. At least, this was what happened after Harrison Ford broke his leg.
With a brand new poster and its first trailer on the way, Ted 2 is ready to shoot its advertising load into the public's eyes. But just when you've thought you know what's headed your way, a surprise hits you in the face.
The Boy Next Door has surprised many moviegoers. Not only has it received a fair portion of positive reviews, rather than the universal critical disdain that was expected, but it has also garnered press attention for being incredibly racy. But I’m here to tell you that it’s not actually that racy at all.
Ant-Man will include many lighthearted moments interspersed among the superhero and heist elements. One of these humorous scenes will be a sparring match between Scott Lang and Hank Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne.
Earlier today, Sony Pictures delivered rather huge news about the Ghostbusters reboot, announcing that they had officially signed deals with four actresses to play the lead roles in the movie. What the big reveal lacked, however, were any kinds of details about the characters that each of the ladies will play. Now those details have started to come out.
As famously recounted in Quint's dramatic monologue in Steven Spielberg's Jaws, the fate of the USS Indianapolis is one of the most horrific tales of World War II. It's a story of capsize, starvation, dehydration, shark-attacks and death, and while there was ultimately a light at the end of the tunnel, that doesn't make the events any less brutal.
Do you like films with strong female leads? Do you like to watch "the fairer sex" prove that they’re not as fair as society has often portrayed them? Then you’ll get a kick out of this supercut tribute to women in prominent action movie roles…literally.
Part of the what makes the Oscars ceremony so spectacular are the elaborate musical numbers. And if Neil Patrick Harris has anything to do with it, it won’t simply be something as misogynistic or toilet humor-y as Seth MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs."
Chief among Harley’s defining qualities is her infamous Brooklyn accent, but will we actually get to hear it during the film? The actress playing her seems to think so.
It appears that the Independence Day sequel is finally a go, and it has now locked in on the actor that it wants to cast as the new hero: The Hunger Games' Liam Hemsworth! The nearly two-decades-in-the-making sequel, titled ID Forever will finally get off the ground for a new generation of moviegoers.
In an interesting discussion of something that could have been, Obi-Wan Kenobi was almost cast as Doctor Strange. Yes, Ewan McGregor, the actor who played the great Jedi warrior in the Star Wars prequels was actually at one point quite close to playing Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme. And he has now looked back on his brief opportunity to nab the role.
Today The Fantastic Four trailer was finally released, and while it was by no means a bad first look at the August blockbuster, there are still a few concerns we have over what the trailer gave us.
In Joss Whedon’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we can surely expect to see characters like Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Captain America getting into fisticuffs with various henchmen and bad guys, but action sequences will be a very different deal when Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch is involved.
Who ya gonna call? Paul Feig finally revealed who he dialed up to star in his all-female Ghostbusters reboot, and the choices are incredibly exciting, and funnier than you’d ever imagined.
This first trailer puts an incredible emphasis on science, and on exploration. Which makes sense, given the inquisitive nature of Dr. Reed Richards (played by Miles Teller on screen here). But it lends real credence to the Interstellar jokes that flooded Twitter in the wake of the trailer’s release.
In case you haven't noticed, Chris Pratt has kind of become the biggest star in Hollywood. With lead roles in two of 2014's biggest hits - The LEGO Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy - he has amassed a massive fanbase and demand, and that looks to continue this year with the release of Jurassic World.
We may have moved on from the Holiday season, but the world of Holiday-themed films will keep the sleigh moving with the upcoming Let It Snow, which has just added a huge array of cast members for what looks to be an attempt to create a new Christmas classic that will apparently be focusing on family foibles.
The original Ted didn’t really lend itself to a sequel, but when a movie earns $549 million at the global box office, the studio is bound to circle back around and ask a filmmaker what other ideas they might have in the Ted tank.
It looks like Lauren Cohan could be taking a much-needed respite from the world of shamblings, sickness and psychopaths on The Walking Dead to tangle with creepy demonic dolls. The actress has recently signed on to star in an upcoming horror thriller film called The Boy.
At long last, we finally got our first official look at Fantastic Four with the big trailer reveal, but the work is far from over. Director Josh Trank confirmed that his team is going back for reshoots over the course of the next few weeks, but new information might’ve revealed what it’s all about. Ever heard of a little place called Latveria?
