It will include highlights from the past - such as Freak or Unique, Ugly Bloke and Fat Lookalikes - as well as the introduction of new features.

We're just 9 days away from the launch of another Smackdown Summer. Rather than announce piecemeal, we'll give you all five lineups in case you'd like more time to catch up with these films (some of them stone cold classics) over the hot months. Remember to cast your own ballots during each month for the reader-polling (your 1979 votes are due by June 4th). Your votes count toward the final Smackdown win so more of you should join in.
These Oscar years were chosen after comment reading, dvd searching, handwringing, and desire-to-watch moods. I wish we had time to squeeze in a dozen Smackdowns each summer! As it is there will be Two Smackdowns in June, a gift to you since this first episode was delayed.

Jason Reitman’s next directorial effort has been announced and it’s going to be a DreamWorks Animation adaptation of the book The Adventures Of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend. This is the first project developed since DreamWorks Animations’ restructuring and looks to be Reitman’s feature followup to 2014’s Men, Women & Children.
The Adventures Of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend was written and illustrated by The New York Times bestselling author Dan Santat, and subsequently named 2015’s “most distinguished American picture book for children,” thus being awarded the Caldecott Medal. According to Deadline, the newly announced adaptation will be written and directed by Reitman and overseen by Dwa development exec Damon Ross and Head of Development Gregg Taylor.
The story follows an imaginary friend, born far away on an unknown island. He waits patiently for a real child to choose him but is continually overlooked and eventually decides to take control of his own fate. »

Rooney Mara surprised many by taking home the Best Actress prize at Cannes, as many thought her co-star Cate Blanchett would take it -- or the two would share. Whether we like it or not, the moment marked the beginning of Mara's campaign for a second Oscar nomination (and potential win) for Todd Haynes' "Carol." It's just a matter of whether The Weinstein Company will campaign them both in lead, or place Mara in supporting. The latter seems more like Harvey, and if that's the case we can pretty much guarantee that one of the category's five slots will go to Mara. Who joins her? That depends on how big, small or good dozens of hopefuls' roles are in films we -- in some cases -- won't see until November. The mighty likes of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Laura Linney, Jennifer Jason Leigh, »

Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) is giving us our first look at Michael Fassbender as iconic entrepreneur and Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a new look at the man behind the ubiquitous Apple revolution.
This isn’t your typical chronological biopic on the man behind the iGeneration, and hopefully by now, we’ve all forgotten about that other Steve Jobs movie with Ashton Kutcher. In Steve Jobs, the action is set backstage at three of the brand’s iconic product launches: the Mac in 1984, the NeXT in 1997, and the iPod in 2001. The film will chart an already successful Jobs through a career low and exile from Apple, before he returns to unveil the revolutionary iPod.

Underestimated by many including us, and kept going by firm fanbase, "The Maze Runner" is a Ya franchise survivor in a sea of also rans. And it's a feat made more remarkable given there are really no big names in the cast — certainly none on the level of Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson, Julianne Moore, and Philip Seymour Hoffman (to name a few) in "The Hunger Games" series or Shailene Woodley, Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, Octavia Spencer and more in the "Divergent" flicks. But yet, "The Maze Runner" pulled in a healthy $340 million worldwide last fall on a budget of $34 million. It's easy math, the numbers are good, and so comes "The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials." “The first movie was the mystery of ‘Where are we and what is this place? And can we get out?’ But the second movie is about the repercussions of getting out and the discovery of »

Michael Fassbender, who showed great range in movies like “Prometheus,” “Shame” and “12 Years a Slave,” is featured in a new trailer in one of his toughest roles yet, larger-than-life Apple Inc. founder Steve Jobs. Kate Winslet stars as Joanna Hoffman, former marketing chief of Macintosh and Jeff Daniels stars as former Apple CEO John Sculley. Katherine Waterston plays Jobs’ ex-girlfriend Chrisann Brennan, and Michael Stuhlbarg and Andy Hertzfeld are original members of the Apple Macintosh development team. [...] »
Oscar pundits, start your engines! The upcoming biographical drama “Steve Jobs,” based on the famed founder of Apple Inc., is helmed by award-winning director Danny Boyle and writer Aaron Sorkin. Going behind the scenes of three iconic product launches in the '90s, culminating in the unveiling of the iMac, the film digs deep in portraying the man who, according to a line in the trailer, engineered one of the “two most significant events of the 20th century.” The film will be released Oct. 9, four days after the anniversary of its subject’s death. Although it is too early to tell how “Steve Jobs” will fare in next season’s awards race, it is at the very least sure to draw attention to its star Michael Fassbender, who brings his signature charisma to the man who invented the future. Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, and Seth Rogen also star. Check out the trailer below. »
The teaser trailer for the upcoming biopic debuted on Sunday and also features Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Kate Winslet as former marketing chief of Macintosh Joanna Hoffman and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley.
"You can't write code. You are not an engineer. What do you do?" Rogen's Wozniak is heard saying in a voiceover.

Read More: Why Michael Fassbender Thinks It's Important to Work With First-Time Filmmakers Despite a turbulent ride to production, the first trailer for Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" has us pretty excited. Michael Fassbender stars as the late Apple CEO and tech mastermind in what promises to be his definitive cinematic treatment. Envisioning a screenplay from "The Social Network" Oscar winner Aaron Sorkin, Boyle's film will explore the personal tradeoffs that came with Jobs' desire to revolutionize technology, and will balance his successes and failures in a sweeping account of his incredible life story. The debut trailer (posted above) neglects to show us much footage, but it's all the better for it. As the screen narrows in on Jobs, with his back to us as he looks towards an empty theater, the music quickens and the condemning voices of those closest to him -- played by the likes of Kate Winslet, »

Universal shared a first glimpse of Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" during last night's series finale of "Mad Men." Watch the teaser below. Written by Aaron Sorkin, the long-gestating film stars Michael Fassbender as the titular Apple mogul, alongside Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels. Sorkin has apparently written a 181-page, three-act screenplay that spans 16 years. The film passed from director to director, and studio to studio, like a hot potato before finally landing at Universal. "Steve Jobs" launches in theaters October 9. (Conspiracy alert: Could "Steve Jobs" open the New York Film Festival? In the "Mad Men" finale, Peggy was seen with the second annual poster hanging on her wall, and it got me thinking this could happen. This year, Nyff runs September 25 to October 11.)

It's here! Universal Pictures' Steve Jobs biopic had quite the casting shuffle in its early stages, but it looks like Michael Fassbender was the perfect choice to portray Apple's late co-founder on the big screen. Viewers got an official first look of Fassbender in character Sunday in the first Steve Jobs trailer. The clip also provides a brief glimpse of Kate Winslet as former marketing chief of Macintosh, Joanna Hoffman, Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Jeff Daniels as former Apple CEO John Sculley. Voiceovers provide the narrative for most of this preview. At one point, Wozniak (voiced by Rosen) says: "You can't write code. You are not an engineer. What do you »
Trailers are problematic things. Reveal too much, and you put the audience off. Reveal too little, and you fail to grab their interest. The balance is particularly difficult to strike when the film in question is a biographical drama, and one which lacks explosions, car chases and the like. This is why it is so notable when a trailer arrives for such a film, and is perfect – like this one, for Steve Jobs.
Based on the book Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson, award-winning writer Aaron Sorkin has crafted a screenplay that dramatises the rise of the man that shaped the digital age with nothing more than his passion, ambition and vision. It charts both his professional and personal life, and details the effect that his career had on his relationships with those around him, as well as on himself, using a three-event narrative structure.

Another Steve Jobs movie? Already? That seems to be the main knee-jerk reaction to the first "Steve Jobs" trailer, which was released May 17 during the big "Mad Men" finale. The Ashton Kutcher movie "Jobs" came out in 2013 and pretty much bombed. This new "Steve Jobs" movie stars Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet, with a high-profile team including director Danny Boyle and writer Aaron Sorkin. It looks like classic Oscar bait, and some fans seem to think that's why it exists, while others think it could be a palate-cleanser after the failure of "Jobs."
The new trailer makes Jobs seem like a rock star, focusing on his back facing an empty theater -- then an adoring audience -- and hides that Fassbender is even playing the role until the final shots.
Here are some early reactions: "So, was Ashton Kutcher's version a 2 hr long trailer 'til they got a stronger cast? »

Steve Jobs, Danny Boyle’s upcoming biopic about the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, so far has existed as a theoretical counterpoint to the similar film starring Ashton Kutcher from 2013. That changes today, with the first trailer for what is sure to be a much classier look at one of the most influential and controversial figures of the computing revolution. Starring Michael Fassbender in the title role, along with Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen and Jeff Daniels, it’s… »
It took a fair while to get off the ground, and at the point when director David Fincher dropped out, it looked like the project may be in trouble. However, the biopic of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs is happening, and is set to arrive later this year.
