29 April 2016 7:05 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Even the several quick teasers can't prepare you for what awaits: the trailers for Alice Through the Looking Glass.

But that's not all! Pink also has a hot new original song for the film, which hits theaters on May 27! Catch all the trailers above and below. »

Kevin Smith Wins PG-13 for Yoga Hosers Without an Appeal

28 April 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In a world where R-rated movies are a hot topic of discussion, the often vulgar and very R-rated director Kevin Smith has actually been fighting to get a PG-13 rating for his latest horror movie. It was a short fight, though. And no one got hurt. Set to appeal the R rating given to Yoga Hosers, Kevin Smith was awarded a PG-13 without having to appear in front of the MPAA to make his case. The filmmaker behind such gloriously R-Rated movies as Clerks and Mallrats had this to say on Instagram about winning the rating he wanted.

"Holy shit! The #MPAA just canceled my @yogahosers appeals screening that was set for tomorrow. They said they re-watched the movie and now agree that it is, indeed, a PG-13! I don't have to cut anything out to secure the PG-13 rating either! Next up, we'll tour the kids movie in June »

Kevin Smith's "Yoga" Gets a PG-13 Rating

28 April 2016 9:53 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Kevin Smith has won his appeal and managed to secure a PG-13 rating for his upcoming comedy "Yoga Hosers".

The teen girl-targeted film, which premiered at Sundance, initially secured an R rating due to a scene with what Smith describes as "a cartoony drawing of testicles on a book cover". Smith's film was to get an appeals screening tomorrow, but things have changed. According to Smith himself on Instagram:

"The #MPAA just canceled my yogahosers appeals screening that was set for tomorrow. They said they re-watched the movie and now agree that it is, indeed, a PG-13! I don't have to cut anything out to secure the PG-13 rating either! Next up, we'll tour the kids movie in June and July (tour details coming soon) and release #YogaHosers in theaters right after Comic-Con. Many thanks to the #MPAA for the 180 degree turn! #KevinSmith #YogaHosers #harleyquinnsmith #lilyrosedepp"

MPAA changes rating of Kevin Smith’s Yoga Hosers to PG-13

27 April 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, Kevin Smith took to social media to announce that the Motion Picture Association of America had slapped an R-rating on his new film Yoga Hosers, owing to a cartoon drawing of a pair of testicles. Smith stated that he would appeal the decision, but he won’t have to, as he’s now revealed that the MPAA has changed its mind and granted the film a PG-13.

Holy shit! The #MPAA just canceled my @yogahosers appeals screening that was set for tomorrow. They said they re-watched the movie and now agree that it is, indeed, a PG-13!

What’s on the Line for Hollywood’s Biggest Stars & Players in Summer Movies

27 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hollywood’s biggest stars and newest players alike enter the crowded summer blockbuster season with a lot to prove. Some are hoping to brush off the debris from past failures; others are aiming to chart fresh directions in their careers. Here’s a look at five contenders who are hoping to be crowned winners over the next four months:

Will Smith (“Suicide Squad”)

What’s on the line: After “Focus” and “Concussion” underwhelmed, Smith needs to prove he’s still the biggest movie star in the world. “Suicide Squad” reps his first big fanboy play.

Warning signs: “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” was supposed to kick of the interconnected DC Universe, but despite a gaudy box office total, nobody seemed to like it very much. How big will crowds be for “Suicide Squad” on Aug. 5?

The good news: Trailers for the movie about a team of super villains have gone viral. »

Tim Burton Inspired Beetlejuice Bar Opens in New York

26 April 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Beetlejuice is getting his own bar! And if you say your drink order three times, it will appear before you. Welcome to Beetle House in New York. It is a fine drinking and dining establishment that has been inspired by the iconic director Tim Burton, his 1988 classic Beetlejuice and some of the other movies he has unleashed upon the world.

Beetle House is getting ready for its big grand opening in New York City's East Village later this year. You can visit the bar's official website here. It reveals that both the food being served and the drinks on hand will pay direct homage to the work of Tim Burton. While the bar very much looks like a juke joint where you might find the Ghost with the Most on his off-hours, that is certainly not the only movie being represented.

Mad Miller & the Cannes Jury

26 April 2016 6:05 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Oscar-robbed George Miller is back! Well, not in movie theaters (alas) but as president of this year's Cannes Film Festival competition jury. The announcement of the jury is always a cause for excitement since the list provides an annual eclectic mix of international artists both behind and in front of the camera. For 2016 we have:

President

George Miller (Writer/Director/Producer, Australia) fresh off of his across-the-board triumph Mad Max Fury Road

Jury Members (Alpha Order)

Arnaud Desplechin (Writer/Director, France) His current release is My Golden Days (our interview) and he's also responsible for the sublime double of Kings & Queen (2004) and A Christmas Tale (2008) which are must-see feats of intricate storytelling & actressing

Kirsten Dunst (Actress, Us) Little Kiki has long since grown up though she's the youngest member of this jury at 33. There seems to be a renewed appreciation for her talent out there, for which we have Fargo season 2 to thank. »

25 April 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Disney's track record with remaking their classic animated films into live-action hits for a new generation is perhaps one of the best hot streaks in the business. They've not only made a ton of money doing so, but the movies themselves are actually becoming increasingly wonderful. Most recently The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Favreau, blew the whole world away with its stunning visual effects, delivering a truly big screen experience. The studio already has a number of other live-action remakes in the works, but today they announced even more. Here's their future line-up.

Rare Nightmare on Elm Street Deleted Scene Reveals a Big Secret

25 April 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Three years ago, Warner Home Video released A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection on Blu-ray. This set contained all seven movies in the hit horror franchise, along with most of the bonus features that have been compiled from the various home video releases over the years. However, that collection missed a few bonus features that were originally put together for an obscure Laserdisc release, which includes a deleted scene that drops quite a big bombshell.

This deleted scene, which was posted on YouTube more than six years ago but has just started making the rounds today, features Marge Thompson (Ronee Blakley) explaining who Freddy Krueger really was, to her daughter Nancy (Heather Langenkamp). Most of this footage was included in the original theatrical cut, where Nancy explains how Fred was released on a technicality, which lead to several parents taking matters into their own hands by killing Krueger themselves.

Going Against the Critical Grain: When Expressing An Opinion Takes Bravery

24 April 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson explores the difficulties writers face when their opinion flies in the face of the popular consensus…

Film journalists such as myself frequently get slammed for daring to criticise a movie we hated: we didn’t make it, we had no idea of the stress involved in organising a small army of cast and technicians and are catastrophically wrong in every way.

This is a perfectly valid point – but to assume that it’s easy putting one’s opinion to paper (or, more pertinently nowadays, to web) is certainly not always the case, especially if the opinion in question dares to be different. In fact, defying popular consensus and arguing a point-of-view that many might see as utterly bizarre takes a sheer act of will and bravery.

This issue has been on my mind of late. After all, is what constitutes a ‘proper’ movie critic the ability to think »

Lukewarm off the Presses: Hamilton, Banks, Anastasia, Cloak & Dagger. Plus Tony Buzz!

20 April 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Nathaniel, back from the Nashville Film Festival where I juried on the "New Directors" competition. More on that once our awards are announced. Until then, I'm under hush order. But let's catch up on all sorts of movie & entertainment news that happened over the past handful of days that we didn't cover here.

Lin-Manuel Miranda won the Pulitzer for his Broadway smash Hamilton and, giddy squeal, The New Yorker's television goddess Emily Nussbaum won the Pulitzer for criticism. If you haven't read her, you must. She's just wonderful.

• The Golden Globes have clarified their rules for what drama and comedy mean in a probably futile attempt to get campaigns to stop trying to game the system.

• I forgot to mention that teen superhero duo Cloak and Dagger are getting their own TV show (yay! always loved them in the comic books) but Kate Beaton has two words for you "tit »
