Roberto Orci Will Not Direct ‘Star Trek 3,’ Studio May Want Edgar Wright

Amidst all the franchises trying to get your attention over the last month it would be easy to understand if you forgot another Star Trek was also coming our way in the years ahead. Star Trek 3, which will likely have a different name when it hits theaters, is scheduled for release in 2016. There is only one problem: Deadline claims director Roberto Orci has just left the project only months before production was set to begin.

Orci was given Star Trek 3 after original director JJ Abrams landed this little indie project called Star Wars: Episode VII –

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Pyramid’ Is A Fun, Yet Familiar Thrill Ride

Film: The Pyramid
Starring: Ashley Hinshaw, Denis O’Hare
Directed by: Grégory Levasseur

Capping off what can only be described as one of the worst years for mainstream horror in the last decade, 20th Century Fox has delivered a fun, yet familiar thrill ride with The Pyramid.

It’s August 2013 and the streets of Cairo are on the brink of complete chaos. The government and its citizens are fighting for reasons far too meaningful for a film like The Pyramid to try and explain, but it does, however, provide a great setting to begin a film that otherwise would need …

Lifetime TV Shares First Trailer For Whitney Houston Biopic

Oh, Lifetime. You keep making bad movies and people keep tuning in. Your continued success is proof people don’t want quality entertainment as much as they want something to distract them from their own mundane lives, and your latest original film looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

Just a month after catching all sorts of shade for their universally panned film about the life and death of Aaliyah, Lifetime Television has released the first trailer for Whitney, an upcoming biopic about the late great Whitney Houston. The film is scheduled for release in early 2015, and from the …

Yes, the star of Sherlock and The Imitation Game has signed on to become Stephen Strange for Marvel’s fall 2016 feature. Reports claim the actor got involved after Inherent Vice star Joaquin Phoenix dropped out. Scott Derrickson (Sinister) will direct.

Ryan Reynolds Confirms He Will Star In The ‘Deapool’ Movie

We already told you that a Deadpool movie would be hitting theaters in 2016, and we also suggested that it was highly likely Ryan Reynolds – the actor who performed in the pitch video – would return to play Deadpool.

The First ‘Terminator: Genisys’ Trailer Is Shiny, Loud, And Confusing

The first trailer for Terminator: Genisys has found its way online, and it’s just as shiny as it is confusing.

Taking place sometime in the future, Terminator: Genisys tells the story of one many (Jai Courtney) being sent back in time to stop the events that take place in the first Terminator film from ever happening. He arrives too late, however, and the timeline he thought he would be arriving in no longer exists. Sarah Connor is still alive though, and he will need her help if he’s going to survive long enough to figure out exactly what is happening. …

‘While We’re Young’ Trailer: Noah Baumbach Teases Another Indie Hit

I don’t know about you, but I have always felt like Noah Baumbach receives about 5% of the credit he deserves. For over a decade now he has been delivering hit after hit, both for mainstream audiences and those who prefer something a bit more indie. I mean, how many writers can you name who can craft something as emotionally riveting as The Squid And The Whale or Frances Ha, then turn around and crank out Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted? There’s only one person, and that’s Noah Baumbach.

For his latest work, Baumbach has recruited Ben Stiller, …

Stream Two Songs Lana Del Rey Wrote For Tim Burton’s ‘Big Eyes’

Lana Del Rey wrote two brand new songs for Tim Burton’s upcoming film Big Eyes, and early this morning both tracks found their way online.

I’m all for new Lana Del Rey at any time and for any reason, even if the project that inspired her latest work is a complete snoozefest. Yes, we have seen Big Eyes and no, we were not that impressed. What did stand out almost immediately however, was just how great the latest material from queen Lana sounded backing the flick. One sounds a bit like her debut, while the other feels like an …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Mule’ Is A Funny Tale About Emotional And Physical Incontinence

Film: The Mule
Starring: Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell, Hugo Weaving
Directed by: Angus Sampson and Tony Mahony

First time Australian feature film directors Tony Mahony and Angus Sampson (who also is the lead star), produce a lean, dark, sporadically funny, weird, and based on true events take on adolescent qualities in grown-up people. Growing up is hard to do and we all know that but in this, Mahony, Sampson, and co-writers Jaime Browne and Leigh Whannell (who also plays a role) envision a story where smuggling drugs through a certain body cavity can make you step up to the plate …
