Netflix Reveals ‘Hemlock Grove’ Season 2 Release Date

The cool thing about Netflix and its programming efforts when compared to traditional television is that they have no need to worry about high numbers for any one program in order to guarantee viewer retention. They can appeal to niche markets as they please and take chances whenever they feel it’s worth the risk, which may explain why Hemlock Grove is springing back to life later this year.

Yes, the Netflix original series that has nothing to do with politics, retirement homes, trailer parks, or wealthy white women in prison is coming back for a second season. The king of …

There seems to be a surprising lack of music-centric films scheduled for release in 2014, but one biopic everyone can look forward to is the story of the Godfather Of Soul himself, James Brown.

This week, less than nine months after the original film debuted in theaters, the trailer for that second chapter found its way online.

New ‘Fast & Furious 7′ Poster Might Make You Cry

UPDATE: Director James Wan says the new poster is a fake. Well played, internet. Original post below:

When most people think of the Fast & Furious franchise their minds are overrun with images of high speed chases and over-the-top explosions, but the latest poster promoting the recently delayed seventh franchise installment takes a far more sentimental approach.

Accompanied by the message “This is where roads part,” the latest poster for 2015′s Fast & Furious 7 features two cars driving down an open road, with one vehicle turning off the pavement in such a way that the combined tire …

New Trailer For ‘The Raid 2′ Is Even Better Than The Last

Movie trailers are tricky business. On the one hand, you want each preview for your film to be as exciting as possible so that anyone who encounters any of the materials will be likely to seek out your feature. On the other hand, giving away too much up front can lead to people exiting the theater feeling a bit underwhelmed. Finding a balance between these extremes is key, and I think filmmaker Gareth Evans perfected his formula for movie promotion with the latest trailer for The Raid 2.

Premiering at Sundance this week before seeing a limited theatrical release …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Her’

Film: Her
Starring: Joaquin Phoenix
Directed By: Spike Jonze

I’ve lost count of how many nights I have stayed awake thinking of the future and the possibilities it might present. Will we have flying cars? Will we defeat the generally accepted idea of death by somehow reaching the singularity? Will we still relate to one another the way we do today? That last question is one of many addressed and dwelled upon in Her, the latest film from Spike Jonze, and as you can probably imagine the search for that answer is riddled with heartache. The journey, however, is …

Hitting theaters June 13, 22 Jump Street will reunite Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) for an all-new undercover adventure that will eventually test the strength of their friendship. That may seem a little too familiar, but there are a few twists in store. The synopsis reveals:

A new trailer found its way online this afternoon, and at the end of this post you can experience the latest preview for the Zack Snyder-produced effort.
