First Full ‘Peanuts’ Movie Trailer Captures The Holiday Spirit

We are still a year away from the release of The Peanuts Movie, but that isn’t stopping Blue Sky Studios from sharing a new trailer for the highly-anticipated film.

Set to debut in theaters sometime around Thanksgiving 2015, The Peanuts Movie will be the first big screen adventure to feature Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Woodstock, Peppermint Patty, and the rest of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts gang. The plot is still being kept under wraps, but the latest trailer teases a Christmas setting, as well as an epic battle between Snoopy and the Red Baron.

First ‘Minions’ Trailer Tells The Origin Of ‘Despicable Me’ Characters

You may not know this, but Despicable Me 2 is the third highest grossing animated film of all time. The film opened just shy of $30 million here in the United States, but thanks to strong legs during a summer season light on family films the movie eventually surpassed the one billion mark in ticket sales. ONE BILLION. That’s James Cameron money, y’all, and Universal is not about to let the franchise die without milking this cash cow for all its worth.

Despicable Me 3 is not coming out until 2017, but Universal has found a way to make the …

Dave Bautista Cast As A Villain In Sam Mendes’ Upcoming James Bond Film

Guardians of the Galaxy solidified Chris Pratt as Hollywood’s next big leading man, but it also helped the careers of seemingly everyone else connected to James Gunn‘s box office dominating Marvel release as well. The most surprising of the bunch is Dave Bautista, who’s mostly only known in the professional wrestling world until he took the scene-stealing role of Drax the Destroyer. He won over movie audiences worldwide and now, according to Latino Review, he’ll put that newfound love to the test by portraying a villain in Sam Mendes’ upcoming James Bond film.

According to the popular …

‘American Sniper’ Teaser Is Everything You Want In A Great Movie Preview

Strap in, film fans. This one is a doozy.

Most movie fans also love trailers, and those who don’t often complain that many previews for coming attractions spoil major reveals that would be better left for those experiencing the film in full. I don’t disagree with that argument, but I do believe it’s entirely possible to be sold on a movie without having any real idea what is going on. Gone Girl‘s trailers are a perfect example of this, as is the recent promo for Inherent Vice. Now, thanks to filmmaker Clint Eastwood, we can add American Sniper

Official ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Plot Synopsis Released

Marvel has released the official plot synopsis for its upcoming blockbuster Avengers: Age Of Ultron, sequel to the highly praised The Avengers.

It appears that crazed robotic entity Ultron will be a side-effect of a Tony Stark project gone wrong, and he will be voiced by none other than the enigmatic James Spader. Along with Spader, Earth’s mightiest heroes will include Evans’ Captain America, Downey’s Iron Man, Ruffalo’s Hulk, Hemsworth’s Thor, Renner’s Hawkeye and Johansson’s Black Widow with additional support from (ex?) S.H.I.E.L.D operatives. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will also be seen onscreen, in the form of illusive …

Leaked ‘Hateful Eight’ Trailer Teases Quentin Tarantino’s Latest

There was a time at the very beginning of 2014 when it seemed like the world would never see The Hateful Eight brought to life. The first project from filmmaker Quentin Tarantino since Django Unchained suffered from an early script leak near the end of 2013 that frustrated the Pulp Fiction mastermind to such an extreme he was ready to walk away from the movie altogether. Several months later, following a live reading of the leaked script that was well received, Tarantino brought the project back to life and announced plans to film in early 2015.

Fast forward to early …

‘White Bird In A Blizzard’ Trailer: Shailene Woodley Has A Sexual Awakening (And A Missing Mom)

White Bird In A Blizzard serves as the third film to star Shailene Woodley in the last year. It is also the third adaptation the former Secret Life Of The American Teenager star has appeared in during that same time. I’m not sure if she likes books, or if she feels the stories in them are better told on the silver screen, but either way, there is a new film on the way that is sure to give all the feels.

Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, …
