Watch: New Trailer for 'The Transporter Refueled' Starring Ed Skrein

5 hours ago

"No one is getting out of the car, now drive!" "Seatbelts – now!" EuropaCorp has debuted the new trailer for The Transporter Refueled, the return of the Transporter franchise. Technically this is the 4th film in the series, following Jason Statham's trilogy. "Game of Thrones" actor Ed Skrein takes over and becomes the "Transporter" this time, driving a few special packages in slick cars all across Europe. This very much feels like just another retread of the same material, throwing lots of stunts and action into a weird storyline about a driver. It actually doesn't look so bad, but I think I prefer Hitman: Agent 47 a bit more. Take a look! Here's the second trailer (+ new poster) for The Transporter Refueled, found on YouTube: The Transporter Refueled is directed by Camille Delamarre (Brick Mansions) and written by Bill Collage & Adam Cooper (Exodus: Gods & Kings, Tower Heist). This time, it's »

Sound Off: Alan Taylor's 'Terminator Genisys' - What Did You Think?

20 hours ago

Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The rules have been reset. It's time to start anew. Now playing in theaters is Terminator Genisys, the return of the Terminator series, this time directed by Alan Taylor (of Thor: The Dark World). Arnold Schwarzenegger is back, but the rest of the cast is new: Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons and Byung-hun Lee as the T-1000. In Genisys, John Connor sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect Sarah Connor, but when he arrives in 1984 nothing is as he expected. So how is it? Better than expected, or not? Is it worth it for Arnold again, or not even that? Once you've seen it yourself, leave a comment below with your thoughts on Terminator Genisys. Spoiler Warning: We strongly urge everyone to actually see the film before reading ahead, as there may be spoilers below. We also »

Paul Thomas Anderson is Writing Robert Downey Jr's 'Pinocchio' Film

21 hours ago

Say what? Yep, it's actually true! THR is reporting that critically acclaimed filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson is the latest to get involved in the developing the live-action Pinocchio project at Warner Bros. Actor Robert Downey Jr. has been attached to star (as Geppetto) and produce for a few years, but now it seems Warner Bros and Downey are looking at PTA to write the script - and potentially direct as well. I don't know if I can really imagine it - Paul Thomas Anderson's Pinocchio. Wow? I guess it will certainly be one-of-a-kind. Thanks to the success of films like Disney's recent live-action Cinderella, they're pushing forward on this with more momentum. And this is one of the next steps after Downey has been working on it quietly. Our most recent update before this pegged Ben Stiller as possible director, but that was in 2013 a few years ago. Now »

Review: 'Magic Mike Xxl' Surpasses the Original on Every Last Stage

21 hours ago

Channing Tatum is America's sweetheart. All he does is win, win, win. Even when you think he has taken on a dud or a sequel that couldn't possibly live up to the original, he and the films in which he performs have a way of shocking you with excitement. This is true, as well, of Magic Mike Xxl, a sequel to Tatum's coming out party to Hollywood stardom and a film that, biggest shock of them all, surpasses its predecessor. Smarter, sexier, and cooler, Magic Mike Xxl is an invigorating piece of entertainment, a solid dramedy about friends and coworkers – even if those coworkers are fellow, male strippers – and a relevant and honest look at the current state of the sexes. Most important of all, it's a better film than the first one. The opening moments may disappoint Magic Mike Xxl's key demographic. Mike Lane (Tatum) has moved on »

Andrew Niccol to Write Lionsgate's 'Monopoly' Movie in the Works

23 hours ago

Will they finally pass Go and collect $200? It sounds like it will happen this time! Lionsgate has announced officially that they're moving forward on development with a Monopoly movie, the next big franchise being readied based on a Hasbro brand. For years and years we covered development on Ridley Scott's version of a Monopoly movie at Universal, and it seemed like it was getting close to happening at one point. However, this new version doesn't have a director involved just yet. Instead, they say that writer/director Andrew Niccol (of Gattaca, Lord of War, In Time, The Host and Good Kill most recently) will be writing the screenplay. Not directing, just writing. That's the only bit of news other than that this is coming soon. Here's a quote from the news story, via THR, about Andrew Niccol's involvement in the Monopoly movie: "Hasbro is a partner with incredible global reach, »

Watch: New Us Trailer for Xavier Dolan's Other Film 'Tom at the Farm'

1 July 2015 10:34 AM, PDT

"Is that all you've got?" Amplify Releasing has debuted the official Us trailer for Xavier Dolan's other film Tom at the Farm, which he wrote and directed (and starred in) back in 2013. The film first premiered at festivals two years ago and has been waiting for a Us release ever since, despite hitting theaters in Canada and Europe in spring of 2014 (and in the meantime releasing his other film Mommy). Dolan stars as Tom, a grieving man who heads to a rural farm to meet his lover's family. It's a very mysterious, quirky, odd, but beautiful thriller of sorts. We featured another trailer for this two years ago, but this new one is also worth watching. Co-starring Pierre-Yves Cardinal, Lise Roy & Evelyne Brochu. This one is recommended. Here's the new official Us trailer for Xavier Dolan's Tom at the Farm, in high def from Apple: Tom (Dolan) has »

Review: Fun, Idiotic 'Terminator Genisys' Can't Do Its Franchise Justice

1 July 2015 10:18 AM, PDT

Heavy on hardware and low on Cpu, Terminator Genisys blasts onto the screen marking the return of one of the action genre's kings, both in terms of star power and franchise. The fifth film in the series, there doesn't seem like much room to continue expanding on the inevitable war between man & machine. If that's your thinking, you've forgotten about the wonders a little time travel can do for a blockbuster franchise. You're also forgetting this is 2015, and the mantra of "bigger is always better" is in full swing. It's a shame that bigger usually means dumber, too. Terminator Genisys is both, briskly limping along the rails its idiotic script has laid down for it. Not even Arnold, welcome return as he is, can justify this film's presence. Not that another entry in the Terminator series needs much justification. The best ideas this franchise had left with James Cameron after Terminator 2: Judgment Day, »

Must Watch: Full-Length Trailer for Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Movie

1 July 2015 9:20 AM, PDT

"We're not a pit crew at Daytona, this can't be fixed in seconds!" Universal has debuted a full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, starring Michael Fassbender as the innovator Steve Jobs. This doesn't exactly make him look like the nicest guy in the world, as the trailer seems to show quite a few extra moments through his long career, including very early on at Apple and an amusing tech failure with the original Os just before a conference. The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Jeff Daniels, Sarah Snook, Katherine Waterston, Michael Stuhlbarg, Vanessa Ross, John Ortiz and Adam Shapiro. I think this looks fantastic, really really excited to see it. Looks even better than I could have hoped. Enjoy! Here's the new full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, direct from Universal's YouTube: You can also still watch the first teaser trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs here, »

Gerard Butler is Back in First Teaser Trailer for 'London Has Fallen'

1 July 2015 4:33 AM, PDT

They blew it all up!! The first teaser trailer has debuted for London Has Fallen, the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen starring Gerard Butler as Mike Banning and Aaron Eckhardt as the President. Both of them are back again, along with Morgan Freeman, in London Has Fallen which does indeed bring the action to London. Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Angela Bassett, Jackie Earle Haley and Robert Forster also star, but not everyone is in this footage yet. This teaser sets up the "London Has Fallen" showdown, putting Butler & Eckhardt at the center of "a plot to assassinate all the world leaders" in London. I'm sure it's going to be full of ridiculous action and crazy twists, so if you're excited for this you know what to expect. Here's the first teaser trailer for Babak Najafi's London Has Fallen, found on YouTube: The sequel to the worldwide smash hit Olympus Has Fallen, »

Must Watch: First Full Trailer for 'Creed' Starring Michael B. Jordan

30 June 2015 6:10 PM, PDT

"Every punch I've ever thrown has been on my own." Warner Bros has debuted the first must see trailer for Ryan Coogler's Creed, a follow-up to the Rocky movies starring Sylvester Stallone as Rocky. He appears in the film since he fought Apollo Creed throughout so many of the original films. Creed's son decides to go all the way in boxing, and asks for Rocky to train him. Michael B. Jordan stars in a once-in-a-lifetime performance as Adonis Creed, also including Sly Stallone, Graham McTavish, Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad. I think this looks phenomenal, one of my most anticipated movies coming up this fall. I'm a huge fan of Ryan Coogler and it looks like he's really making an unforgettable film. Take a look below! Here's the first official trailer for Ryan Coogler's Creed, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube: Creed is directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station »

Teaser Trailer for Oliver Stone's 'Snowden' is Missing the Footage

30 June 2015 10:47 AM, PDT

The most wanted man in the world. Open Road has debuted a teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden movie, his retelling of the Edward Snowden story. Stone has been passionately and intensely working on this film for years ever since his Martin Luther King, Jr. project fell apart. As much as I'd love to say this is an exciting reveal, the teaser contains no footage - only some music and text and eventually an upside down American flag. Big deal. Aren't we all familiar with this already? Give us something, give us some footage, a single shot of Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Snowden would do. Oh well, we'll keep waiting for some footage. Here's the first teaser trailer for Oliver Stone's Snowden, in high def from Apple: Snowden is directed by Oliver Stone who co-wrote the script with Kieran Fitzgerald (The Homesman), based on both Luke Harding’s The »

Brent Hodge & Derik Murray's 'I Am Chris Farley' Doc Official Trailer

30 June 2015 6:59 AM, PDT

"Anytime you get to talk about Chris Farley is a good day." BuzzFeed has debuted the first official trailer for the documentary I Am Chris Farley, a profile about the life of the beloved comedian who died in 1997. It's probably that many of you grew up watching Chris Farley, whether it was on "Saturday Night Live" or in Tommy Boy, Black Sheep or Beverly Hills Ninja. He died almost 20 years ago, if you can believe it was that long ago, and they've finally made a documentary about him and it's out this summer. I Am Chris Farley features all his friends and colleagues, from Adam Sandler to Lorne Micheals, David Spade, Molly Shannon, Christina Applegate, and Bob Saget. I'm looking forward to catching this doc sometime, looks pretty good. Here's the trailer for Brent Hodge & Derik Murray's documentary I Am Chris Farley, found via BuzzFeed: Chris Farley lived his »

Ejiofor, Roberts & Kidman in Billy Ray's 'Secret in Their Eyes' Trailer

30 June 2015 6:22 AM, PDT

"Re-open the case!" Stx Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for Secret in Their Eyes, a dramatic thriller about a tight-knit team of FBI investigators torn apart when they discover one of their own has been murdered. This film is sort of technically a remake or redo of the 2009 film The Secret in Their Eyes, which won the Best Foreign Language Oscar. It's actually a fantastic film that I highly recommend to anyone who hasn't seen it yet, and thankfully this looks a bit different so it's not a repeat all over again. In this version, Chiwetel Ejiofor stars with Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Dean Norris and Michael Kelly. The performances look strong enough to make me put aside the other film, but I hope this is good. Here's the first official trailer for Billy Ray's Secret in Their Eyes, originally from Yahoo: A tight-knit team of FBI investigators, »

Robert Zemeckis Will Not Let Anyone Remake 'Back to the Future'

30 June 2015 4:40 AM, PDT

Phew! Finally, I don't have to write "another day, another remake" because this definitely ain't happening anytime soon. In an interview with UK newspaper The Telegraph, director Robert Zemeckis revealed his rather frank thoughts on remaking his beloved sci-fi movie Back to the Future. "Oh, God no... That can't happen until both Bob and I are dead," Zemeckis said, referring to his co-writer Bob Gale. With Hollywood turning to franchises and old brands more and more these days, it's a legitimate topic for discussion, and I'm glad someone asked him about this. Zemeckis is currently finishing The Walk (which looks great), and has previously written off the possibility of Bttf 4. So long as he stays true to his word, it will all be okay. Here's the full quote from Zemeckis in the paper; thanks to SlashFilm for the tip on this. Zemeckis says: "Oh, God no," the 63-year-old director told the Telegraph, »

First Look: Paul Feig Tweets Photo of New Ghostbusters Uniforms

29 June 2015 5:07 PM, PDT

It's not "who you gonna call?" this time, now it's "what you gunna wear?!" Director Paul Feig has debuted the first photo via Twitter of the Ghostbusters uniforms (but no proton packs?) for the new Ghostbusters movie, starring an all-female team of 'busters. Shooting is now underway. You can see the various nametags on the uniforms for each of the actresses starring in this: Melissa McCarthy as Abby Bergman, Kristen Wiig as Erin Gabler, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, and Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan. These new outfits certainly have an old, gritty vibe to them, and they still are jumpsuits, so that's good news at least. Beyond that, I'm waiting to see any actual footage though I've got a strangely good feeling about this movie. Here's the photo Paul Feig posted on Twitter, showing the uniforms with the hashtag #whatyougonnawear: #whatyougonnawear pic.twitter.com/o5oyHeIaSx— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) June 29, 2015 Update! »

Watch: Trailer for Documentary 'Tig' About Comedian Tig Notaro

29 June 2015 2:09 PM, PDT

"It's so cliche - but it's like, you're alive, you might as well take chances." Netflix has debuted the official trailer for the powerful and inspiring documentary Tig, from filmmakers Kristina Goolsby & Ashley York, about the incredible story and heartfelt humor of Tig Notaro. Most people know the story, but Tig was diagnosed with cancer just after her mother died, and she had a tough time dealing with it but found her way through stand up comedy. Ethan caught the film at this year's Sundance, where it premiered, and wrote in his review that it "packs an emotional punch, and also shines a fascinating light on the life of a comedian, both professionally and personally." I'm definitely looking forward to seeing this film myself. Take a look. Here's the official trailer for Kristina Goolsby & Ashley York's documentary Tig, direct from Netflix: "Good evening. Hello. I have cancer." It was »

James Gunn Reveals the Official Title of 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'

29 June 2015 1:57 PM, PDT

Briefly: Well, there you go, the internet has ruined everything again! Not really, but in related news, James Gunn has confirmed that the new title of Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel will be: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. That makes sense, and is pretty much what we all were expecting, especially after the name of the (totally badass) soundtrack was also Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol.1. Gunn recently snapped a photo of the finished script, which he referenced in a tweet while saying "Okay, I'm not being sarcastic, guys. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Is truly the title." The original scoop he mentions is from Collider, where they nabbed the title in an interview with Kevin Feige. That's all for now. Yes, the official title for the @Guardians sequel is Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. Nice detective work, @colliderfrosty, etc! You got us!— James Gunn »

Claire Denis to Make English-Language Debut with New Sci-Fi Film

29 June 2015 12:27 PM, PDT

Always more science fiction! French director Claire Denis is a talented filmmaker that we hope more and more people are always introduced to, and with this news about her next project, she might get even more attention. Screen Daily is reporting that Claire Denis is set to direct her first English-language feature, after 11 other feature films. It doesn't have a title yet (of course!), but it's apparently a sci-fi story set in space, beyond our own solar system in a "future that seems like the present." Denis is also writing the script with acclaimed British novelist Zadie Smith and her husband, writer Nick Laird. Bring on more sci-fi. Read on. Denis seems to be going all out with this new sci-fi project, which is why we should be paying attention. I love that filmmakers always seem to end up choosing sci-fi when they want to be really ambitious. Denis is »

Pierce Brosnan in 'How to Make Love Like an Englishman' Trailer

29 June 2015 11:35 AM, PDT

"My life had completely changed - I had a wife, a baby, and a pretty good view. And then, everything went pear-shaped." A trailer has arrived for the romantic comedy How to Make Love Like an Englishman, starring Pierce Brosnan as "that" Englishman. Yep, he's still playing the super sexy guy. This film actually seems like the total opposite of Judd Apatow's Trainwreck - a still-a-bachelor, older studly guy must finally settle down when he has a baby with Jessica Alba, but then everything goes "pear-shaped" as he says. Plus - toss Salma Hayek in the mix. Warning - this is laugh-out-loud cheesy, especially the final line. Have fun! Here's the new trailer for Tom Vaughan's How to Make Love Like an Englishman, found on YouTube: A drama about a Cambridge poetry professor who begins to re-evaluate his life of Byronic excess.

Ethan Hawke & Asa Butterfield Star in 'Ten Thousand Saints' Trailer

29 June 2015 11:12 AM, PDT

"I'm offering you Manhattan champ, don't play hard to get." Screen Media has debuted an official trailer for Ten Thousand Saints, from writers/directors Shari Springer Berman & Robert Pulcini (of American Splendor, The Nanny Diaries, Girl Most Likely), starring Ethan Hawke and Asa Butterfield. Hawke plays an estranged father who suddenly "kidnaps" his emo-punk son and takes him to New York City, where he experiences a whole coming-of-age on the streets of Manhattan with new friends. The film is set in the 80's around the punk rock scene and it seems to have a killer soundtrack, of which many of the reviews quoted rave about. Hailee Steinfeld also stars along with Emile Hirsch and Emily Mortimer. They give away a lot (too much) in this trailer, but it actually looks pretty good. "Have you ever heard of punk?"
