‘Orange Is The New Black’ Season 2 Trailer: Next Level Crazy

Netflix has released the first trailer for the second season of Orange Is The New Black, which debuts exclusively on the video streaming service June 6, 2014.

Featuring a cast of familiar faces, attitudes, and a handful of plot teases, the first look at season 2 of Orange Is The New Black looks to up the ante across the board. Viewers can expect more dry wit, more fighting, and more inmates with peculiar personalities that you’ll either love or hate (and tweet about the same). You can view the first trailer below:…

UTG Interview: Marlon Wayans Talks ‘A Haunted House 2′

Few comedic voices have been as prominent or successful in the last two decades as that of Marlon Wayans. From Don’t Be A Menace, to White Chicks, Scary Movie, Little Man, and beyond, Wayans has a knack for bringing the outrageous to life in a way that attracts throngs of movie goers again and again. His latest, A Haunted House 2 (out this weekend), will likely be no different.

Earlier this month I had the opportunity to sit down with Wayans and a group of Boston film critics to discuss his latest work, as well as …

Prepare To Cry During The First Trailer For ‘If I Stay’

Now that Kick Ass 2 has faded from the biggest disappointment of 2013 to being just another letdown from last year, Chloe Grace-Moretz is ready to return to the big screen with a story that is likely to stir emotions around the globe.

Directed by R.J. Cutler (Nashville) and based on the novel of the same name by Gayle Forman, If I Stay is an upcoming dramatic teen romance that puts Moretz front and center. She stars as a bright, talented teen in Portland who falls into a coma after a car accident kills the rest of her …

Summer 2014 Release Set For Woody Allen’s ‘Magic In The Moonlight’

Sony Pictures Classics has revealed a July 25, 2014 release date for Woody Allen’s Magic In The Moonlight. It will be his fourth summertime release in as many years, following 2013′s award-winning Blue Jasmine.

Speaking with Entertainment Weekly for a new feature, Allen shared some insight on Magic‘s origins by informing the writer “I had it on a piece of notepaper in my drawer for ages…I knew it was a good plot, but I kept seeing it as a contemporary thing and something about that just didn’t smell right to me. Then when it occurred to me …

Final ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Trailer Will Kick Your Ass

As much as we love a good X-Men movie, we will be the first to admit the promotional efforts for Days Of Future Past have left us a little on the fence about the team’s upcoming adventure. That is, until we saw the film’s final trailer.

Clocking in at just under three minutes in length, which is more than enough time to make your eyes water with tears of pure joy, the third trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past focuses almost all its energy on the larger-than-life action sequences that have largely been kept in the shadows up to …

‘Friday The 13th’ Gets Another Reboot

There are a few things pop culture won’t let go of – ironically “Let It Go,” the immortal Cher and apparently the Friday the 13th franchise. How many times can that masked murderer walk too slowly after teens? The answer…however many times movie studios want. Alas, Jason Vorhees will rise again as Paramount is looking to bring him back very soon.

Nothing is known about the next chapter in Vorhees’ adventures, but The Wrap was smart to mention Paramount may lean towards the whole “found footage” angle that’s all the rage in horror right now. It makes sense to go …

…And the award for best sequel title goes to…

Magic Mike 2, which is now officially called Magic Mike XXL, will arrive in theaters July 3, 2015. Exhibitor Relations broke the news today via Twitter, but very little additional information regarding the release is available at this time.

According to reports, Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin have been working on the sequel’s script for the last several months. Plot details are being kept tightly under wraps, but Tatum did confirm to MTV over the weekend that the film would be a road trip movie and that most, if …

Channing Tatum Has Met With Producers About Playing Gambit In Future ‘X-Men’ Films

This is the kind of story that will either fill you with excitement or send chills down your spine. For us, it’s the former, but for many it’s likely the latter. To those of you picking chills, all I can say is – get over it. Studios need star power to ensure box office draw, and it does not get much bigger right now than Channing Tatum. Cross your fingers he does not bastardize your childhood and hope for the best. It is all you can do.

Channing Tatum revealed during an interview with MTV that he has met with …

First ‘Gone Girl’ Trailer Keeps Things Mysterious

The first trailer for David Fincher’s adaptation of Gone Girl has found its way online.

Popping up a few short hours after the first poster was released, the initial trailer for Gone Girl is as alluring as it is confusing. Viewers learn up front that Nick Dunne’s (Ben Affleck) wife has gone missing on the day of her wedding anniversary, then see brief glimpses from the media blitz and police investigation that soon follows. Dialogue takes a backseat to imagery, but with the eye of Fincher guiding the lens there is very little reason to complain. You can view the …

Netflix Reveals ‘Hemlock Grove’ Season 2 Release Date

The cool thing about Netflix and its programming efforts when compared to traditional television is that they have no need to worry about high numbers for any one program in order to guarantee viewer retention. They can appeal to niche markets as they please and take chances whenever they feel it’s worth the risk, which may explain why Hemlock Grove is springing back to life later this year.

Yes, the Netflix original series that has nothing to do with politics, retirement homes, trailer parks, or wealthy white women in prison is coming back for a second season. The king of …

Rest In Peace: FEARnet (2006-2014)

New ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Clip Gives Us X-Men In Action

Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards gave us clips of a number of upcoming summer movies, including yet another clip showing off how the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past became the second most expensive film made by 20th Century Fox.

The one-minute clip, taken from the film’s opening sequence, has sentinels discovering a few of our beleaguered heroes, who immediately launch into a delightful power-using frenzy. We see a phasing Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page), an ice-surfing Bobby Drake (Shawn Ashmore), and a portal-popping Blink (Fan Bingbing), along with shots of Bishop (Omar Sy), Colossus (Daniel Cudmore), Sunspot (Adam Canto), …
