First ‘End Of The Tour’ Trailer Is Wonderful (And Sad)

David Foster Wallace spent a part of his life as the most famous writer in America, but whether or not he reveled in the attention is another story altogether. The End Of The Tour, which A24 will release this summer, tells the story of a young man (Jesse Eisenberg) who follows Wallace (Jason Segel) during the tail end of a book tour. He’s there to write about the man everyone loves to read, but as the first trailer reveals he’s really embarking on the biggest journey of his life.

First ‘Cooties’ Trailer Is All About Killing (Zombie) Kids

There is nothing we love more at UTG than a great horror-comedy, and this fall Cooties looks like it could be something special.

Starring a cast of indie favorites, including Rainn Wilson, Elijah Wood, and Alison Pill, Cooties finds a group of elementary school employees fighting for their lives against a ravenous pack of underage monsters. It seems a virus has begun to spread, but it only strikes those who have yet to go through puberty, so our protagonists will have to fight off the hungry horde if they want to make it through the night. You can view the …

New ‘Pixels’ Trailer Introduces Heroes and Villains

If there is any hope for Adam Sandler‘s quickly-disappearing career in comedy, Pixels may be it. Set for release this summer, the film pits the star of Blended and The Cobbler against the most iconic video game characters of all time, and he has somehow convinced Kevin James to come along for the ride.

Today, Sony Pictures released a second trailer for Pixels, which is the first to really detail what exactly will happen in the story. From what we’re told, aliens received a transmission meant to showcase our way of life and mistakingly took it as a …

Zac Efron Is A DJ In First Trailer For ‘We Are Your Friends’

Being 23 is hard. The person you see in the mirror is unquestionably beginning to age, but your spirit feels as youthful as it ever did. The world is telling you to become an adult, but your heart is begging you to play all day and party all night. Most people eventually give in and become the well-adjusted member of society they believe they are meant to be, but some choose to fight for their youth, and that is the story being told in the upcoming Zac Efron-led feature, We Are Your Friends.

Cole, a wannabe DJ, has decided …

The first trailer for Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials has arrived, and so far everything looks just as thrilling as you would expect, if not better.

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 …

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.…

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 –
