There are some stories that deserve to be told and retold - handed down through generation after generation, from campfire tales through to the era of TV and cinema and far beyond. Whether they're related in the pages of a book or projected on a movie screen, these stories speak to the essence of what makes us human: our histories, our friendships, our fears and desires. CHiPs, based on the 70s TV show about two motorcycle cops in California, is not one of those stories.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a big place, and it's getting bigger all the time. You've got the solo movies that started with Iron Man, the cinematic team-ups that began with The Avengers, the TV shows that started with Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Netflix series that kicked off with Daredevil.
Fans have long been hoping that these worlds could properly collide, with a crossover between the big screen Avengers, the small screen Defenders (Charlie Cox's Daredevil, Krysten Ritter's Jessica Jones, Mike Colter's Luke Cage and Finn Jones' Iron Fist), and perhaps even some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, being a popular dream.
From Redband.Ca, Sneak Peek the restricted 'red band' trailer supporting "CHiPs", the new action comedy cop feature written and directed by Dax Shepard, based on the TV series of the same name created by Rick Rosner, opening March 24, 2017:
"...two middle-aged 'California Highway Patrol' motorcycle officers, soon find themselves in a situation like none other, when a sadistic ex-cop and his motor vehicle theft gang wreak havoc throughout their city..."

Right now, I have a love/hate relationship going on with Emerald City.
If the series ends with Emerald City Season 1 Episode 10, I will not be a happy camper. Not just because I've enjoyed the series and want to see a second season, but also because there were too many questions left unanswered.
The best part about the entire Emerald City series was West and Tip. There was nothing that could compare to their chemistry and camaraderie. They were perfect together.
I loved how they each looked out for one another, like a mother and daughter. It was beautiful to watch.
It's just too bad Tip had to give up who he really wanted to be to fulfill his destiny. Once he put on that crown, Tip was no more.
I was sort of torn about what Ozma did to Eamonn. »

"I'm a tough motorcycle cop. I've got no emotion." Warner Bros has debuted a new red band trailer for the Chips movie, a big screen version of the goofy TV show about California Highway Patrolmen. This comedy is yet another update on barely-remembered, totally cheesy TV shows, like 21 Jump Street, now packed with self-awareness and contemporary humor. Dax Shepard directs himself in the film, co-starring Michael Pena, plus Jessica McNamee, Adam Brody, Ryan Hansen, Vincent D'Onofrio, Justin Chatwin and Kristen Bell. The first trailer made this look like they're borrowing from Super Troopers. This new trailer makes it look like they're borrowing from Point Break. Either way, this really doesn't look good at all. Here's the newest red band trailer (+ poster) for Dax Shepard's Chips movie, direct from YouTube: You can still watch the first official trailer for Chips here, to see even more footage from this movie.

Though it's another raunchy, R-rated take on a classic TV show, CHiPs hasn't gotten the same kind of promotional push as this year's Baywatch. An adults only update on the hit adventure series from the late 70s, CHiPs will be in theaters in less than a month, and we've barely heard anything about it. Following the first trailer released just weeks ago, Warner Bros. has delivered a go-for-broke red band sneak peek that is sure to tease, tantalize, and really get a few old school fans worked up. This isn't the CHiPs your grandparents used to know!
Jon Baker and Frank "Ponch" Poncherello have just joined the California Highway Patrol in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons. Baker is a professional motorbike rider who's trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky, undercover FBI agent who's investigating a multimillion dollar heist that may be an inside job. »
Given how popular Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin proved to be when he debuted back on season 1 of Daredevil, it’s actually a bit surprising that he hasn’t made the jump to the big screen yet. Especially given the fact that one of the biggest complaints lobbied against Marvel films is that they always fail to present compelling villains. With that in mind, you’d think that the studio would be eager to let Kingpin start doing some damage in the movies, but for some reason, it hasn’t happened yet.
Now that Spider-Man‘s back at Marvel and getting his very own solo film coming in July, many fans thought that maybe, just maybe, D’Onofrio would find his way into the flick for a quick cameo, possibly setting up a future appearance down the road. That’s something which could have worked out real well, but it »

For those of you unaware, Vincent D’Onofrio has one of the most fan interactive Twitter accounts of any actor out there on social media. He genuinely seems like a great, down-to-earth guy, so it’s no surprise that when someone asked him if he would like to see his version of Kingpin (seen in Netflix’s Daredevil) go up against Tom Holland’s new incarnation of Spider-Man, he joyfully replied. Check out the exchange here…

Warner Bros. has released two new character posters for the highly-anticipated CHiPs remake, featuring the new Jon Baker (Dax Shepard) and Frank 'Ponch' Poncherello (Michael Pena). While these officers may certainly be unorthodox, Ponch has a "mind for action" while Jon possesses and "appetite for justice," although these posters don't necessarily reflect that. Jon is seen spilling his lunch on his uniform, while Ponch is seen holding a woman's bra. They're clearly two of the California Highway Patrol's finest.
The movie is based on the original TV series of the same name, where motorcycle officers Jon Baker (Larry Wilcox) and Frank "Ponch" Poncherello (Erik Estrada) cruised the freeways of Los Angeles, solving crimes and helping people in trouble. The show debuted on NBC on September 15, 1977 and ran for 6 seasons. While the season finale aired in May 1983, Ponch and Jon would return more than a decade later. Stars Erik Estrada and »
With production just about to get underway on Jurassic World 2, we are eagerly awaiting some sort of official announcement in terms of what to expect from the sequel plot wise. So far, Universal Pictures and the creative team behind the sequel have been tight-lipped when it comes to the details. However, it looks like some story elements for the Jurassic World sequel may have found their way online. And if they are legitimate, this promises to be the most insane entry in the franchise to date.
It must be noted that this information is not coming directly from the studio, so it should be taken as rumor for now. That said, a production listing for Jurassic World 2 was recently uncovered on My Entertainment World that provides a new logline for the movie. The information isn't necessarily official, but assuming there is any validity to it, we could be looking at government trained, »

There’s nothing quite like building an iconic film scene/location using colourful bricks and a little booklet of instructions. It brings the magic of the movies right into your front room, and it kills time very easily.

Let’s start with an absolute beauty: this Avengers-inspired S.H.I.E.L. »
A few weeks ago, Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona shared the first photo from the set of this highly-anticipated sequel, teasing that filming is about to begin soon. That wasn't exactly a surprise to some fans, since there had been reports that filming will start this February in London. While it hasn't been confirmed if cameras have started rolling or not, production is getting closer and closer to happening, as evidenced by a new photo from producer Frank Marshall.
Frank Marshall, who produced the 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World along with Steven Spielberg, took to Twitter to share a photo of his new London office. Alongside a poster of Jurassic World is a poster for the 1960 cult classic Dinosaurus!, along with a number of dinosaur toys on a shelf, setting the stage for this new sequel. This new image comes just hours after a new report surfaced that shed some potential light on the story. »
Perhaps one of the greatest and indeed surprising encounters in Daredevil season 2 was the moment when Jon Bernthal’s Frank Castle was thrown in jail, only to strike up an unlikely alliance with Kingpin, the criminal overlord played close to perfection by Vincent D’Onofrio.
That nail-biting tension culminated in a good old-fashioned brawl between the two villains, leading to The Punisher escaping back onto the streets of Hell’s Kitchen. It’s here that we expect Netflix’s planned solo series to kick into gear, but given the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Frank Castle’s clash with Kingpin, one might assume that the Powers That Be at Marvel and Netflix would find a workaround to ensure Vincent D’Onofrio reprises as the mob boss later this year. Sadly, that’s not the case, with D’Onofrio debunking those rumors via Twitter.

Vincent D'Onofrio is a very active presence on Twitter, frequently interacting with fans and answering any Marvel-related questions to the best of his ability. The Magnificent Seven actor has already confirmed that he won't be reprising the role of Wilson Fisk/Kingpin for The Defenders, but a lot of people expected him to return for another showdown with Jon Bernthal's Frank Castle after their brutal confrontation in Daredevil season 2. Well, even though that will almost certainly still happen someday, it's not going to go down in Netflix's solo Punisher series. Nope not a chance. No plans. Zero https://t.co/MC5oqdKekk — Vincent D'Onofrio (@vincentdonofrio) February 8, 2017 While it's always possible D'onofrio is simply trying to throw fans off the scent (he did make a surprise appearance in Daredevil season 2, after all), his reponse does seem pretty definitive. When do you guys think we'll see Fisk in action again? Drop us a comment below. »
The cursed videotape returns in the belated horror sequel, Rings. Here's our review of a bewitchingly terrible film...
Jean-Luc Godard once said something to the effect that a story needs a beginning, middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order. Rings doesn't really have much of a story, but it does have three beginnings, so it must be really, really good. Right?

It's nearly 20 years since Sadako first started menacing screens of varying sizes in the original Ring, Hideo Nakata's collision of traditional Japanese ghost tale and modern urban culture. It was a film that kicked off a western interest in all things J-horror, spawned a series of Japanese prequels and sequels, and an inevitable American remake, directed by Gore Verbinski in 2002. The Ring then got a sequel in 2005, and now we have Rings - an attempt to rethink »
When Paramount started moving forward with Rings in early 2015, there was talk that this project was actually a prequel to the 2002 hit thriller The Ring, which starred Naomi Watts as Rachel Keller, Martin Henderson as Noah Clay and Daveigh Chase as the iconic Samara Morgan. When shooting began just a few weeks later, director F. Javier Gutierrez confirmed that this story is actually a sequel, although none of the original cast members were brought back for this follow-up. F. Javier Gutierrez revealed in a new interview that he had actually considering bringing back Naomi Watts as Rachel Keller, but the reason it never happened may surprise you.
The Ring, which was based on the hit Japanese thriller Ringu, was a big hit at the box office, taking in $129.1 million domestically and $249.3 million worldwide from a $48 million budget. The 2005 sequel, The Ring Two, wasn't quite as successful, earning $76.2 million domestic and »
The past couple of years have been very good for horror fans. Not only have their been indie breakouts like The Witch and It Follows, but studio horror movies like Lights Out and Don't Breathe have also impressed critics and audiences alike. Even The Conjuring 2 managed to be an outstanding horror sequel, which seems to be a less common occurance. Paramount is hoping to get in on the action with Rings this weekend, and they have just released a couple of brand new clips online.
Paramount Pictures uploaded two new clips from Rings to their YouTube channel today, including one that shows the first three minutes of the movie. The clip features the airplane sequence that has been teased in the trailers and shows Samara really demonstrating her powers by putting an entire plane full of people in danger. The clip bears a lot of similarity to the opening of the first Final Destination, »
