Coming Distractions: The new Power Rangers trailer shows off its superhero side

21 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Beneath all the martial arts action and giant, teetering robots, the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers have always had a pretty standard superhero origin story, with a handful of teens stumbling into extraterrestrial abilities and a whole “great power, great responsibility” thing. The latest trailer for the upcoming Power Rangers makes that connection explicit, with the teen team labeling themselves as superheroes, and even name-checking a few popular Marvel bigwigs.

Of course, that doesn’t mean the movie’s ignoring the “giant robots totter around a city” part of the equation, either; we get a slightly longer look at the team’s Zords in action, plus Zordon, Rita Repulsa, and Alpha 5 (Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Banks, and Bill Hader, respectively) all getting a chance to shine. Power Rangers arrives in theaters on March 24.

‘In Dubious Battle’ Review: A James Franco Period Protest Drama, Dubiously Made

18 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In Dubious Battle” is not the first movie about a labor strike with Robert Duvall as the antagonizing boss man; that honor goes to the 1992 Disney musical starring Christian Bale, “Newsies,” in which Duvall portrayed Joseph Pulitzer. “Newsies” went on to receive five Golden Raspberry Award nominations, but it contained more drama and gusto than this humorless dirge from director-star James Franco.

This smug period drama follows the conventional narrative of an idealistic revolutionary and his fearless leader as they incite a strike among apple pickers in California’s fictional Torgas Valley. Matt Rager adapted the script from John Steinbeck’s 1936 novel, and the film is largely based on events that occurred during the California labor strikes of 1933.

Another New Trailer for 'Power Rangers' Movie Gives Us More of Rita

17 February 2017 7:11 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Five little Rangers - how cute." Lionsgate has unveiled another brand new 60-second trailer for the Power Rangers movie, directed by Dean Israelite, in theaters in March - about a month from now. The full trailer hit just last month, but this new trailer has even more footage - including a few scenes with Rita Repulsa gearing up to take on the cute little Power Rangers. The cast is lead by: Naomi Scott as The Pink Ranger, Becky G. as The Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as The Black Ranger, Rj Cyler as The Blue Ranger, and Dacre Montgomery as The Red Ranger. Also starring Bryan Cranston as Zordon, Bill Hader as the voice of Alpha 5, Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, as well as David Denman, Sarah Grey, Emily Maddison, and Caroline Cave. I'm not sure if this will be any good in the end, but it does look like it'll be fun to see. »

New ‘Power Rangers’ Trailer Showcases Elizabeth Banks, Goldar, and the Zords

17 February 2017 1:01 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“The answer of what is happening to you is here.”

So says the commanding voice of Zordon (Bryan Cranston) to five recently empowered superhero teens in the latest “Power Rangers” trailer. The footage has the quintet, slowly learning how to use their powers, battling alien invader Rita Repulsa, played by none other than Elizabeth Banks.

“Five little rangers,” Banks, dressed in green armor and holding a golden scepter, sneers. “How cute.”

The trailer is some of the best footage fans have seen of Rita in action, plus a look at Goldar, the giant golden monster she commands. Dramatic Edm music overlays the fighting clips, as Red, Blue, Pink, Yellow, and Black Rangers test out their newly obtained powers and zords (mechanical dinosaurs).

Final Power Rangers Trailer Can’t Figure Out If It’s Iron Man Or Spider-Man

17 February 2017 12:41 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you didn’t know any better, you’d assume next month kicked off the summer. Between Logan, Beauty and the Beast, Kong: Skull Island and Ghost in the Shell, it’s filled with tons of blockbusters, and that’s without mentioning Power Rangers. Director Dean Israelite’s revamped reboot is a younger, slicker take on the corny children’s TV series, and this final trailer isn’t afraid to flaunt that.

The new one-minute teaser favors jokes as much as it does the goofy, larger-than-life action, and while it’s unclear if the final product will work, it looks like the filmmakers took a tongue-in-cheek approach here. What a relief. While screenwriter Max Landis is given a writing credit, his script was ultimately discarded – though you might think otherwise, with the film seemingly mimicking Chronicle just as much as it does Iron Man.

‘In Dubious Battle’ Review: James Franco Takes on John Steinbeck

17 February 2017 11:44 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The most impressive aspect of James Franco’s “In Dubious Battle” is, by far, its cast. Unsurprisingly, Franco stars in his adaptation of what is thought to be John Steinbeck’s first major work, and joining him is a celebrity roll call: Robert Duvall, Bryan Cranston, Ed Harris, Vincent D’Onofrio, Sam Shepard, Josh Hutcherson, Selena Gomez, Zach Braff, and even Danny McBride. Together, they tell the story of California apple pickers who went on strike in 1933 and of the two radical activists who instigated them. But rarely has such star wattage resulted in a film so dull. Franco has tackled legendary authors. »

Final Power Rangers Trailer Sends Alpha 5 Into Battle

17 February 2017 11:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the March 24 release date rapidly approaching, Lionsgate has released a final trailer for Power Rangers with brand new footage, along with another TV spot. These new videos give fans a better look at the iconic Zordon, voiced by Bryan Cranston, along with a new glimpse at the villainous Rita Repulsa (Elizabeth Banks) and Goldar, plus a brief scene with Alpha 5 (Bill Hader). The Alpha 5 scene shows that, while he is certainly lacking in size, he's more than capable of taking care of himself, as he takes down an enemy while screaming "Power Rangers!" Alpha 5 could very well be a scene-stealing character in this immense ensemble when he makes his big screen return on March 24.

Lionsgate debuted this 60-second trailer and 30-second TV spot on YouTube, which also features some footage showing how strong these teenagers have become after finding the power coins. There is also a new scene where Rj Cyler's Billy Cranston, »

Bryan Cranston Says It would Be Fun to Return as Walter White on "Better Call Saul"

17 February 2017 5:33 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

While Bryan Cranston had a very long “journeyman” career as an actor before Breaking Bad, it was the role of Walter White that turned him into a bonafide super star.  And it’s not like Breaking Bad was a one hit wonder for his talents.  Cranston has taken the big screen by storm and is regarded as one of the finest actors out there.  He also has not forgotten about Walter White or the success it has given him. Cranston’s done a couple of Walter White appearances since Breaking Bad has ended, namely on SNL.  However, in a recent interview Cranston

Bryan Cranston Says He’d Reprise His Breaking Bad Role “In A Second”

16 February 2017 6:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Breaking Bad may have ended several years ago, but the near masterpiece still lives on through spinoff Better Call Saul. While it hasn’t quite reached the same highs as Walter White’s explosive adventure did at its peak, it’s still a wholly enjoyable show that fans seem to appreciate. Not to mention that it continuously displays improvement. However, even though it’s set to enter its third season later this year, there’ve still been no signs of a cameo from the aforementioned drug kingpin or his partner in crime, Jesse Pinkman.

That’s not terribly surprising, given that it wouldn’t be that easy to include them here as Better Call Saul is a prequel, but there’s no reason the characters couldn’t make a quick appearance that feels organic and wouldn’t be a detriment to the story. Such a thing hasn’t happened yet »

Broad Green Pictures Is Missing Release Dates and Angering Filmmakers. Here’s Why.

16 February 2017 4:13 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It was baffling when distributor Broad Green Pictures pulled Lucy Walker’s “Untitled Buena Vista Social Club Documentary” from the Sundance Film Festival on January 20, the same day as its intended premiere, with a press release that said the “post production process has taken longer than expected.”

Nearly a month later, Broad Green has made no further comment on the film’s status, but its homepage still boasts that “Lucy Walker’s Buena Vista Social Club documentary will have it’s [sic] official world premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival!”

That disconnect (and typo) could be a matter of sloppy site maintenance, but multiple IndieWire interviews with people familiar with Walker’s film and Broad Green suggest more complex issues dog the three-year-old would-be studio. (Walker declined to comment for this article; Broad Green executives didn’t respond to requests for comment.)

In Dubious Battle Review

16 February 2017 12:02 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Let it be known that I genuinely like James Franco. Given the choice between ‘yer average pretty boy movie star and a ludicrous avant-garde polymath jester, I’ll pick the latter every time. Problem is, while the self-titled Mayor of Gay Town gleefully smashes through cultural/social/artistic boundaries like a steam train, the art that’s produced at the end of it is… not great.

And so to In Dubious Battle, an adaptation of John Steinbeck’s 1936 novel of the same name and the latest in Franco’s quest to put his favorite books on screen. This weighty literary project has, thus far, borne little of value. His adaptations of Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury and As I Lay Dying were “nearly unwatchable” and “stale and jumbled,” and his take on Cormac McCarthy’s Child of God “tedious and meandering”. Sadly, this trend remains unbroken.

Rita Repulsa Hijacks Power Rangers Twitter, Shares New Photo

15 February 2017 11:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In honor of Valentine's, Lionsgate decided to use the holiday as an interesting opportunity for some promotion. They let the villain from the movie, Rita Repulsa, take over the official Power Rangers movie twitter account. While there were some amusing tweets, the best thing that came from the takeover was a brand new image of Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa from Power Rangers.

The keys to the Power RangersTwitter account were turned over to Rita Repulsa, or at least, whoever was tweeting as Rita Repulsa, early in the day on Valentine's Day and the takeover lasted most of the day. The first thing that was shared was a brand new image of Elizabeth Banks as Rita and even though it isn't a still from the actual movie, it offers a really good look at the villain's costume and signature weapon. Here is how the picture was captioned.

Lena Dunham on Ending 'Girls,' Taylor Swift and Being Blamed for Hillary's Loss

"I've always annoyed people," says Lena Dunham. "I was the girl in third grade where everybody was like, 'This girl is so annoying – like, leave.'" But Dunham has done a whole lot more than freak out critics on the left and right for the past five years: In addition to her bestselling memoir and her smart feminist newsletter, Lenny Letter, HBO's Girls, which begins its sixth and final season in February, has been consistently hilarious and innovative, even as a fair number of people could never stop confusing Dunham's sometimes clueless character, »
