‘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 …

The First ‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer Is Here!

20th Century Fox has unveiled the first trailer for their upcoming reboot of Marvel’s Fantastic Four.

There has been a lot of rumors surrounding the rebirth of the Fantastic Four, including the possibility of the team’s origin story being completely rewritten to fit a more modern, tech-heavy story. The first trailer keeps the exact cause of the group’s transformation a mystery, but otherwise looks to be the grittiest, perhaps most aggressive take on a superhero film in recent memory. It still carries that typical comic book feel, but there is also some influence from Christopher Nolan’s vision of …

First ‘Spy’ Trailer Turns Melissa McCarthy Into James Bond

Having grossed over $500 million worldwide between their work on Bridesmaids and The Heat, Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy have joined forces once more for a new action-comedy titled Spy.

I hate to be the guy who says if you’ve seen one Melissa McCarthy film you have more or less seen them all, but Spy looks incredibly familiar. McCarthy stars as an average citizen who, upon taking a job at the CIA, expects to become a world famous spy doing cool things and taking down bad guys. The reality of the situation is that she spends most her …

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?)
