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 …


‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Will Connect With ‘Avengers 3′

Marvel has created an exceptional cinematic universe. Tying in big budget film after big budget film, it should be safe to assume that the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy will serve up plot lines for films to come, though one may be taken aback to learn that Guardians is aiding the plot all the way up to Avengers 3.

Looking at the clues left behind in all the Marvel films up to this point, I surmise that the planned Avengers 3 will most likely be tied to the epic Infinity Gauntlet story-line. In the past films we have seen …


Watch A Clip From Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Marvel has released a new clip of the highly anticipated space drama, Guardians of the Galaxy. Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan, as well as the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper, Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel’s most ambitious project yet.

In the new clip we see Peter Quill, better known as Star-Lord, in the midst of a heist. How he reacts to getting caught is a perfect example of what Pratt can bring to the table portraying the Solo-esq Quill. While short, the new clip surely does its job at hyping up …


‘Captain America 3′ To Release Same Day As ‘Batman Vs. Superman’

With a record breaking opening in April, Captain America: The Winter Soldier has taken over cinema screens this past week. Due to its vast success, it seems that Marvel is ready to put the yet untitled Captain America 3 up against Batman vs. Superman, with both films set to release May 6, 2016.

We here at UTG absolutely loved the film, giving it an A rating, and rightfully so. Thinking of itself as a political thriller first, and superhero film second, The Winter Soldier only solidifies Marvel’s ability to create a cinematic universe that is not only tied …


‘Jurassic World’ Adds Judy Greer, Lauren Lapkus, And Katie McGrath

There was once a time where there was little information on the upcoming Jurassic World, though the past few weeks have shown us plenty of new information to go on.

Joining the ranks of Chris Pratt, and Bryce Dallas Howard, Arrested Development star Judy Greer, Tudors star Katie McGrath, and Orange Is The New Black‘s Lauren Lapkus are the newest additions to the Jurassic team.

There is no word on what characters these three new actresses will portray. All we know is that Pratt is a “dino wrangler” with attitude, and Howard is a scientist employed by the …

Stream Gorgeous Scores by Clint Mansell (‘Noah’) and Mica Levi (‘Under the Skin’) Now

Once tomorrow hits, there are two big films hitting theaters that could become blockbusters. Well, at least if they’re based on their gorgeous scores.

First up is Clint Mansell’s score for Noah, the biblical epic directed by Darren Aronofsky. It comes out tomorrow, but the score is up on Spotify for streaming now. It doesn’t take long to realize Mansell’s pieces erupt with dramatics. One look at the film trailer and you should have known that already (or one look at the title of the songs, like “The World Was Filled With Violence” and “The End of All Flesh …


Jake Johnson Confirmed For ‘Jurassic World’ Role

Though there have been many rumors surrounding Jurassic World castings, the reunion of Jake Johnson and Colin Trevorrow was always a hopeful one. Though you will have to hope no longer, for Johnson has confirmed that he has a role in the Trevorrow directed dino-adventure.

Reuniting the team from the extremely well received Safety Not Guaranteed (including writer Derek Connolly), Johnson joins the ranks of Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, BD Wong, and more for the return of the much loved series.

When asked about working on the film, Johnson said,

Absolutely. Now, I’m also a huge fan of Jurassic


Cheech & Chong Returning To The Big Screen

It’s been over 30 years since Cheech & Chong have been together in theaters, but that’s about to change because their new movie is in the works.

Will this next chapter in our favorite stoners’ lives be about the continuous legalization of pot? Well not exactly, Chong recently told Celeb Stoner, “We’ve had some preliminary meetings. It looks really good. It looks really funny. It will be about us going to a festival called the Burning Joint. All sorts of shenanigans happen. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

The comedy duo are set to start filming this summer …


‘Divergent’ Dives For Number One Box Office Spot

Opening to an impressive $56 million weekend gross, Divergent has successfully claimed this weekend’s number one spot for box office numbers. While releasing to poor reviews, it seems that the Veronica Roth-penned story can still bring in an audience, even with less than average review numbers.

Newcomer Muppets Most Wanted took the number two spot, pushing last week’s number one, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, down to number three. Pertaining to family films, it is still nice to see The LEGO Movie retaining a presence, holding tight at the number nine spot.

In its first weekend God’s Not Dead debuted …

‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Set 30 Years After ‘Return Of The Jedi’

Fans have been eager to get any info on the new Star Wars film, set to hit theaters Dec. 18, 2015. While there’s been plenty of discussion and rumors about the details of the film, not much has been confirmed.

Today, Lucasfilm and Disney have announced that filming for Episode VII, directed by J.J. Abrams, will begin this May at Pinewood Studios in London.

They also gave a little taste of what to expect from the new film, stating:

It has also been confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VII is set about 30 years after the events of Star Wars:


’300: Rise of An Empire’ Rises Over Box Office

The Spartan return to the big screen proved to overpower the rest of the box office, debuting over the weekend with $45,050,000. Though Rise of An Empire has received mediocre reviews, it seems that the allure of Spartan violence still bleeds through. Last week’s number one title, Non-Stop, has been bumped down to the number three spot, with an earning of $15,378,000. Second newcomer, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, claimed the number two spot, debuting at $32,500,000.

The much loved Lego Movie is still bringing in audiences, with earning $11,005,000 this week, and a total gross of over $220,000,000. …


Adam McKay Says There Won’t Be An ‘Anchorman 3′

Those holding on to hope Anchorman would spawn a third, well in the words of “Adele Dazeem,” let it go. Adam McKay is sticking to his guns and assuring the world that Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues… Continued was the final one.

The longer version with a lot more jokes and raunchiness opened last weekend, and it’s the last time fans will see Ron Burgundy on the big screen. McKay told Empire, “It’s done,” adding, “It was great to do it and it was so fun to work with those guys again, but I think that’s it for Ron Burgundy.”…
