First ‘Sinister 2′ Trailer Reveals New Setting And Scares

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Sinister. There is no question that filmmaker Scott Derrickson knows how to make audiences feel uneasy in their seats, but I don’t know if that feature necessarily showcased his talent in the best light. The story, while occasionally unsettling, didn’t deliver the kind of lasting impact many modern horror films have been able to offer and almost no one has been talking about the upcoming sequel while titles like Poltergeist and Insidious 3 compete for viral fame.

Sinister 2, which arrives this summer, looks to make good on all the promises left …

Oh No, A Play-Doh Movie May Soon Be A Reality

Following the success of The Lego Movie, Hollywood execs began scrambling for other brands from our collective childhood that could be easily converted into box office gold. While I’m not sure 20th Century Fox has a sure thing on their hands, the studio’s latest acquisition is turning more than a few heads.

According to reports from a number of reputable outlets, 20th Century Fox is currently working on a plan to give Play-Doh its very own movie. That alone is surprising, but what makes this whole story even more interesting is the fact Bridesmaids mastermind Paul Feig is in …

‘Hot Pursuit’ Trailer: Reese Witherspoon + Sofia Vergara = Big Laughs

Two years after The Heat proved women can hold their own in the world of action-comedies, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara have joined forces for a new feature we can’t wait to see.

Hot Pursuit tells the story of a promising young police officer (Witherspoon) who receives her first big assignment. She is tasked with transporting a key witness (Sofia Vergara) to a very important trial, but before that can happen a lot of gunplay and explosions occur, which propels the women–who of course could not be more different–on a spontaneous road trip while they try to figure out their …

New ‘Ant-Man’ Banner Reveals Film’s Villain

A new banner for Marvel‘s second major release of 2015 has revealed the villain everyone has been waiting to see take flight.

Ant-Man currently has a November 2015 release date, but during the last week there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the film and when genre fans would first get a peak at Paul Rudd’s turn as Scott Lang. The trailer is said to be arriving ‘soon,’ but to hold us over Marvel has shared a new banner for the film that features a first look at the supervillain known as Yellowjacket.

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 –

It’s Official: Benedict Cumberbatch Is ‘Doctor Strange’

The rumors have been persistent since the days before Marvel’s ‘Phase Three‘ announcement, but today it finally became official: Benedict Cumberbatch will star in Doctor Strange.

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.

“Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity,” said Producer Kevin Feige. “In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique …

‘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, …

Sylvester Stallone Admits That A PG-13 ‘Expendables 3′ Was “A Horrible Miscalculation”

Aside from the huge piracy leak that left The Expendables 3 available to downloaders weeks before release, one of the things that hurt the old-men-blowing-up-stuff franchise was its PG-13 rating. The first Expendables was a hard and unapologetic R. The second was a PG-13 film that added digital blood in to make it R. The third was like watching members of a nursery home trying to escape from teenage-geared monotony. Only making $206 million worldwide, the third entry in the franchise under-performed compared to the $276 million haul of the first and $305 million haul of the second.

Quentin Tarantino May Retire After His Tenth Film

Director Quentin Tarantino‘s films have cemented themselves into popular culture since his 1992 release Reservoir Dogs. His upcoming film, The Hateful Eight, will be released next year. Getting ramped up and ready for production, Tarantino spoke frankly to the American Film Market about his plans for retirement. He mentions the premise of retiring at the top of his game, a strategy used by many celebrities and athletes.

Deadline scooped the story up originally and here is what the famous director had to say:

“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get

Benedict Cumberbatch In Final Negotiations To Play Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’

The good people over at Deadline dropped the biggest news bomb of the day and possibly of the week. It is now reported that Benedict Cumberbatch of Star Trek Into Darkness and Sherlock is in final negotiations to play Doctor Strange for Marvel Entertainment’s upcoming 2016 film adaptation. This news comes after Joaquin Phoenix’s involvement never came to fruition. Tom Hardy, Jared Leto, and even Ethan Hawke were also rumored to be attached at one point.

The original comic line behind Doctor Strange told the story of a surgeon, Stephen Strange, who after an accident renders one of his hands …

‘Batman v Superman’ Teaser To Run In Front Of ‘The Hobbit’

They might not admit it to the public, but it’s pretty clear to anyone paying attention that DC Comics is desperately trying to catch up to, if not top, Marvel‘s cinematic universe. Every time one company announces something big, the other one follows, and every time it’s the fans who win.

We have just under two years to wait until Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice hits theaters, but according to a new story on Forbes we might get a glimpse of the superhero epic as soon as December 2014. Writer Mark Hughes claims to have heard from a …
