First ‘Jem And The Holograms’ Trailer Is A Disappointment

The truly, truly outrageous animated 80s rock star known as Jem is getting her own live-action film later this year, and the first trailer is unquestionably bad.

In the time before the internet, films and television shows adapted from popular written works could largely ignore the source material as there were far less people able to call studios on their bullshit, and almost nowhere for people to individually engage thousands of people on a public forum with the same unhappy sentiment. Those days are ancient history now, and the nerds of today demand more out of their entertainment. Name and …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Maggie’ Is Brimming With Emotional Tension

Film: Maggie
Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin
Directed by: Henry Hobson

Some say the film world’s obsession with the undead has run its course, but Maggie is proof there are still great stories to be told. It doesn’t hurt that it’s also a gorgeously shot feature, or that the lead performance from Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of his career best, but at its core Maggie is a straightforward z-flick that manages to find a bit of new ground amongst well-tread territory.

Maggie (Abigail Breslin) is sick. Several months have passed since a new disease started spreading across the globe. Scientists …

Sia

Sia’s “California Dreaming” Cover May Change Your Life

The song that has made every trailer for San Andreas 50% more enjoyable has now found its way online in full.

Sia is pretty much everywhere these days, and she will soon further permeate pop culture as her cover of The Mamas & The Papas’ “California Dreaming” is about to become the best damn thing you hear all week. The song is currently being used to promote a movie in which The Rock flies a helicopter and saves his family from an earthquake that takes place in — you guessed it — California. The song is probably better. You can …

Vacation-2015

First Red Band ‘Vacation’ Trailer Is Hilariously Self-Aware

“…I’ve never even heard of the original Vacation.”

The first trailer for the upcoming reboot/sequel of National Lampoon’s iconic Vacation franchise has arrived, and it is every bit as hilariously self-aware as one could hope.

Starring Ed Helms as a grown up Rusty Griswold, Vacation finds Helms hoping to keep his family connected by embarking on the same cross-country road trip to Walley World his parents took him on some thirty years prior. His wife, played by Christina Applegate, is not thrilled by this idea, nor are his two sons, but they pack their bags anyway and hit the open …

Netflix Shares First Trailer For The Wachowskis’ ‘Sense8′

The Wachowskis have become known for big budget science fiction epics, but their next project is actually a mini-series created exclusively for Netflix.

Sense8 tells the story of one moment that links 8 minds in disparate parts of the world, putting 8 strangers in each other’s lives, each other’s secrets, and in terrible danger. The first trailer debuted today, and it does a fine job of showcasing this idea without giving away many, if any, secrets about what might happen as a result of this miraculous event. You can view the footage below.

The cast for this series is huge, …

Cowboys-Vs-Dinosaurs

MOVIE REVIEW: No One Wins In ‘Cowboys Vs Dinosaurs’

Film: Cowboys Vs Dinosaurs
Starring: Eric Roberts, Vernon Wells
Directed by: Ari Novak

In a world where films about people who drive cars through high rise hotels in Dubai can become the fourth highest grossing film in the world, it’s really not that shocking a film called Cowboys Vs Dinosaurs has come into existence. It’s a full-length feature film made with real money and features real actors (even Eric Roberts), but sadly it’s not the second coming of low budget creature features I thought it might be.

Every great creature feature begins with a moment of human stupidity. Sometimes it’s …

Welcome-To-Me-Review-Wiig

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Welcome To Me’ Is Kristen Wiig At Her Best

Film: Welcome To Me
Starring: Kristen Wiig, Wes Bentley
Directed by: Shira Piven

As if you needed another reason to love Kristen Wiig.

Welcome To Me may be the definition of an offbeat movie. Both hilarious and heartbreaking, the film tells the tale of a mentally unwell woman who uses her lottery winnings to purchase air time on at a local TV station. She uses that time to host one-hundred episodes of her very own talk show, starring herself, with absolutely no guests.…

New ‘Magic Mike XXL’ Trailer Invites You To “Come Again”

With just over a month to go until Magic Mike XXL hits theaters, a new preview for the film is asking fans of the original to please “Come again.”

Tongue in cheek sexual innuendo aside, the latest trailer for Magic Mike XXL could only be better if it showed the entire film from beginning to end (but that would no longer make it a trailer). The clip is one of the most self aware previews I have ever seen, teasing the audience by claiming it doesn’t want to show the ‘best parts’ of the film, only to eventually give in …

Latest ‘Human Centipede 3′ Trailer Showcases The Plot

The Human Centipede 3 arrives in theaters and on VOD later this month, but today we have a new trailer for the film that is sure to make your skin crawl.

Set in the most violent prison in America, The Human Centipede 3 finds franchise stars Dieter Laser and Laurence R. Harvey returning in new roles, but with (basically) the same goal in mind. You see, both Laser and Harvey have become so fed up with the way their prison operates that they have decided to go to extreme measures to ensure no further wrongdoing occurs, and those measures just …

Lionsgate Officially Announces ‘John Wick 2′

“People keep asking if I’m back and I haven’t really had an answer, but yeah, I’m thinking I’m back.”

John Wick said it best. Today, after weeks of rumors, Lionsgate officially announced plans to create John Wick 2. The new sequel will feature the return of Keanu Reeves in the title role, as well as the return of directeors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch. Additionally, screenwriter Derek Kolstad will return to pen the film’s script. No release date has been set, but late 2016 is certainly not out of the question.

John Wick 2 will be released by Lionsgate’s …

Will Poulter Cast As Pennywise In Upcoming ‘It’ Reboot

We’re The Millers star Will Poulter has been cast as Pennywise the clown for New Line and True Detective director Cary Fukunaga’s two-part It reboot.

Poulter, who also appears in the highly successful Maze Runner series, was chosen after a decision from the studio to cast a younger actor in the iconic villain role. Tim Curry, otherwise known as a God amongst men to everyone at UTG, famously played the part when the Stephen King book by the same name was first adapted in 1990.

Sources close to production say Fukunaga was blown away by Poulter’s audition.…

San Andreas Movie

Third ‘San Andreas’ Trailer Shows Even More Destruction

With less than a month to go before a fictional California succumbs to the unimaginable horror that would ensue if the San Andreas fault were to become overactive, Warner Bros. has shared a third trailer for The Rock’s first disaster epic.

Yes, amidst all the sequel and reboot news it may have been easy to forget that The Rock will be battling an earthquake this summer, but that is exactly what happens in San Andreas. Dwayne Johnson stars as a search and rescue helicopter pilot who must search through the remains of a recently leveled Los Angeles to find …
