In 2018, it will be 20 years since the Can't Hardly Wait gang threw their epic graduation party on the big screen. The cast think it's about time for a reunion movie, and now is as good a time as any to start the hype machine. Will we see Can't Hardly Wait 2 become a reality over the course of the next two years? Lead actors Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ethan Embry sure hope so.
It happened this year with Wet Hot American Summer, which returned in the form of a Netflix series. Like that movie, Can't Hardly Wait has continued to grow a strong cult following over the years. It stands as a perfect time capsule for the 90s, especially in terms of clothing, slang and the social structure of the teenage movement at that time. 90s nostalgia is about to reach its crescendo soon, and this may be the perfect sequel to get us there. »
Ethan Embry had a very busy weekend. The actor took part in not one, but two different reunions in Los Angeles, celebrating a pair of '90s films that we still can't get enough of! First up: "Empire Records." Buzzfeed hosted a 20th anniversary screening of the flick on Friday evening, with a Q&A with the cast following the film. While Liv Tyler, Renee Zellweger and Rex Manning himself, Maxwell Caulfield, were Mia, Embry was joined by Robin Tunney, Johnny Whitworth, Coyote Shivers, director Allan Moyle and screenwriter Carol Heikkinen. We gotta hand it to them, this cast still looks amazing two decades later. Aj is dreamy as ever! During the panel, Tunney revealed that it was her idea to have her character shave her head. "Allan came to me and he’s like, ‘I think the studio wants to fire you ‘cause they think you’re kind of too cute to be depressed, »

Everyone off the street by eight.
When the local shows you the sacrificial altar, don't laugh, just leave. But Dr. Michael Cayle (Sean Patrick Thomas) just laughs when Phil (Dean Stockwell) explains the pre-Columbian bloody table in the middle of the woods. Cayle has bought a medical practice out in rural New Hampshire to expand his family. But, wouldn't you know it, the town is obliged to sacrifice animals to the savage Isolates who dwell in the muddy tunnels underneath or else be consumed by them--except for the eyes, which they creepily leave behind. Silly Dr. Cayle refuses to make a sacrifice, thinking it all a bunch of hooey, and tempts their wrath. Luckily, he has medical skills these creatures require.

Rapper and actress Nicki Minaj has signed on to join the growing cast of MGM's upcoming comedy sequel Barbershop 3. She will play a new character named Draya, who works as a beautician in the beauty shop area of the Barbershop. The role marks Nicki Minaj's second big screen performance, after making her feature debut on last year's The Other Woman.
Barbershop and Barbershop 2: Back In Business stars Ice Cube (Calvin Palmer), Cedric the Entertainer (Eddie) and Eve (Terri) are reprising their roles for the sequel. New casting additions include Common and Regina Hall, but no details were given for their characters. It isn't clear at this point if other original franchise stars such as Sean Patrick Thomas (Jimmy), Troy Garity (Issac), Michael Ealy (Ricky) and Leonard Earl Howze (Dinka) will also come back for the follow-up.
This photo is bringing us back! Sarah Michelle Gellar reunited with "Cruel Intentions" costar Sean Patrick Thomas over the weekend, as they both attended the opening night performance of "Cruel Intentions: The Completely Unauthorized Musical" parody in Los Angeles. Gellar, who played the wicked Kathryn Merteuil in the '90s flick, and Thomas (Aka Kathryn's sometimes play-thing Ronald) joined the film's writer/director Roger Kumble at the Rockwell: Table & Stage for the big debut. Running through April, the show hits all the memorable moments from the film -- including that kiss -- against a soundtrack of '90s songs performed live. And Sarah definitely enjoyed herself! "#cruelintentionsthemusical was insanely good," she posted on Instagram after the premiere. "#KilledIt I absolutely ❤️ it #Rockwell #KatieStevens was amazing as #Kathryn and #constantinerousouli nailed #Sebastian. Seriously the entire cast was genius." The actress took time to mingle with the show's stars after and posed for the photo above. »

Welcome to another horror/sci-fi round-up! This time around we have word of two big cast confirmations for Independence Day 2, details on Scream Factory's Deep in the Darkness Blu-ray / DVD release, and information on the new Blanc/Biehn Productions film, Treachery.
Independence Day 2: Last night it was revealed that the first official cast member had signed on to star in Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2, the sequel to his 1996 film that featured massive alien-induced destruction and larger-than-life characters. It's now been confirmed that one of those characters will be coming back, as Emmerich tweeted last night that Jeff Goldblum will appear in the sequel, likely reprising his role as the brainy and dryly humorous David Levinson, who teamed up with fighter pilot Captain Steven Hiller to take down the mothership in the original film. Smith will not be coming back to reprise his role as Steven. »

It's been over 10 years since we've last been to the Barbershop so you all know what that means. Yes, that's right people, it's time for another installment of the hit franchise starring Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer. Get ready because we're heading back to the South Side of Chicago to cut some hair. While the complete details of Barbershop 3 are still being fashioned, word on the street is MGM is hiring The Best Man franchise director Malcolm D. Lee to helm the upcoming sequel. Of course we can count on seeing Cube and Cedric the Entertainer, both of whom, according to Deadline, are crafting deals to reprise their iconic roles of Calvin and Eddie, respectively. Whether or not we will see Terri (Eve) and Jimmy (Sean Patrick Thomas) rejoin the crew has yet been confirmed but due to their inclusion in the first two films, it's highly likely. »
Deals are reportedly quickly coming together for Ice Cube (Calvin Palmer) and Cedric the Entertainer (Eddie) to reprise their roles from the 2002 original and the 2004 sequel in which Cube will both star and produce.
It's unclear if previous film cast members like Sean Patrick Thomas (Jimmy), Eve (Terri), Troy Garity (Isaac), Michael Ealy (Ricky) and Leonard Earl Howze (Dinka) will reprise their roles for the sequel.

Malcolm D. Lee is finalizing a deal to direct Barbershop 3 for MGM, with the studio quickly putting together deals for Ice Cube (Calvin Palmer) and Cedric the Entertainer (Eddie) to reprise their roles from 2002's Barbershop and 2004's Barbershop 2: Back In Business. We reported in March of last year that MGM is moving forward with the sequel, with Ice Cube set to both star and produce.
The report from March revealed that the studio was seeking a screenwriter, but it isn't known if the script is currently being worked on. The original Barbershop was a surprise hit in 2002, taking in a healthy $75 million domestic from just a $15 million budget. The story followed Calvin and the wide-ranging characters that inhabit his Chicago barbershop. The 2004 sequel Barbershop 2: Back In Business earned $65 million domestic from a $30 million budget, and it also spawned the spinoff Beauty Shop starring Queen Latifah.
Aquaman finally gets his due in Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, out now from Warner Home Entertainment. In the latest installment in the new linked video continuity, all inspired by the uninspiring New 52 reality. As is fitting in a spotlight film like this, Aquaman’s origins are explored so we also get the tried and true enmity between Arthur Curry and Orm, the Ocean Master. There’s lots of shouting, fighting, fish, and Sturm und Drang but honestly, not a lot of warmth and emotion—much like the current source material.
Queen Atlanna (Sirena Irwin) rules over forgotten Atlantis which is about to be proven a real legend as it braces for war. The undersea kingdom is discovered when Cyborg (Sean Patrick Thomas) investigates a sub having gone missing. Upon discovering the existence of Atlantis, he summons the rest of the Justice League — Superman (Jerry O’Connell), Batman (Jason O »
