First If I Stay Trailer Starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Jamie Blackley

9 hours ago

Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema have released the first If I Stay trailer for director R.J. Cutler’s (Nashville) drama.  Based on the Gayle Forman novel of the same name, the film stars Chloe Grace Moretz as a young girl facing a tough decision between pursuing her musical dreams at Julliard or staying close to home with the love of her life (Jamie Blackley).  Circumstances are further complicated when a life-changing accident throws her life off completely off balance.  I'm not familiar with the novel, but it's easy to see why the story's central relationship is so beloved among readers, and this trailer suggests that the filmmakers have obviously taken great pains to bring that bond to the screen in as honest a way as possible. Hit the jump to watch the If I Stay trailer.  The film also stars Mireille Enos, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, »

Fargo Recap: Series Premiere “The Crocodile’s Dilemma”

10 hours ago

Neither part of the term "original adaptation" fully applies to FX's new limited series Fargo, even if it's branded as such.It evokes a sense of the original Ethan and Joel Coen film without using the same characters, yet it's full of callbacks.  There are currently many series on air that tie in with movies: NBC's Hannibal (a prequel of sorts to Silence of the Lambs), A&E's Bates Motel (a prequel to Psycho), and even NBC's comedy About a Boy (like Fargo, it is "inspired" by the world of the movie).  What they have in common is that each series is at its best when its the farthest away from its source material.  Once it becomes its own interpretation of the world it's using as a base, it gets stronger.  With Fargo, it may take a few episodes for that to develop, but once it does, there's great potential. »

Final X-men: Days Of Future Past Trailer

10 hours ago

20th Century Fox has released a final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer for director Bryan Singer’s superhero “inbetweenquel," and man does it have everything you could ask for in a mutant-mashup movie.  We get way more setup - along with a look at just how extensive and vital a role Wolverine plays in the plot - with plenty of superpowers on display, promising an action-packed payoff.  The follow-up finds Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) having his consciousness sent back to 1973 in order to help Professor X (James McAvoy), Magneto (Michael Fassbender), and the rest of the X-Men: First Class crew stop Bolivar Trask (Peter Dinklage) and the rise of the Sentinels, giant robots programmed to exterminate mutants.  The trailer does a great job at summing up the premise, which highlights the caper aspect of the plot.  Its only downside is the poor choice of music; even Quicksilver looks good here! »

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Recap: “Providence”

11 hours ago

War has changed and so too have the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Following last week’s episode and the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the agents are left without the resources of which they’ve become accustomed.  The series has begun to turn itself around with traitors, espionage, and revelations coming fast and heavy, throwing some unexpected curveballs our way.  Did I also mention that this episode sees the arrival of Agent Eric Koenig, played by comedian extraordinaire Patton Oswalt?  Can the agents defeat Hydra that have taken over S.H.I.E.L.D. bases across the world?  Will the show continue its hot streak moving forward?  Has Ward turned heel for real?  Hit the jump for our recap. Obviously, once again, just as a warning, this episode will spoil events that had taken place in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, so be warned true believers.  S.H. »

Ice Cube Talks the Success of Ride Along, Ride Along 2, 22 Jump Street, and More; Says Straight Outta Compton Starts Filming in July

16 hours ago

With director Tim Story’s comedy Ride Along hitting DVD/Blu-ray this week, I recently landed an exclusive interview with Ice Cube to help promote the release.  As most of you know, the film stars Kevin Hart as a fast-talking aspiring police officer who must team up with his girlfriend’s (Tika Sumpter) brother, a hot-tempered cop (Cube), to prove that he’s worthy of being her husband.   While Universal was obviously hoping for a hit, I don't think anyone expected the film to make $150 million at the worldwide box office.  But it definitely explains why the studio is quickly moving forward with a sequel, which is already slated for a January 15, 2016 release. During the interview, Cube talked about the success of the film, why he wanted to make the project, the sequel, if it's weird that he's played so many police officers, what he recommends people do when they visit L. »

Inside Amy Schumer Does a Killer Aaron Sorkin Parody with “The Foodroom”

17 hours ago

Because Aaron Sorkin has a distinct style, he's an easy target for parody.  However, that doesn't mean parodying him is easy.  There's still a cadence, a tone, and a personality to mimic, and nailing down those elements takes a sharp comedic mind.  Enter Amy Schumer, who's probably about to break out in a big way.  She's the writer and star of the upcoming Judd Apatow film, Trainwreck, and she currently has a series on Comedy Central entitled Inside Amy Schumer.  On the latest episode, she did a glorious parody of The Newsroom by resetting it in a fast food joint.  The results are hilarious.  It's also great to see Josh Charles, who starred on Sorkin's Sports Night, lampooning the kind of role he once played for real. Hit the jump to check out the sketch.

A new Walk of Shame red-band trailer has been released online for director Steven Brill’s R-rated comedy.  The film stars Elizabeth Banks as a news anchor who finds herself out on the street after a drunken one-night stand with no money, identification, or means of travel.  Her shameful trek across Los Angeles is fraught with misadventures as she attempts to make it to a career-changing job interview.  This Nsfw trailer shows some of the hijinks that ensue during Banks’ trek, and it appears that Brill has taken the opportunity to pack plenty of talented comedians into bit parts that play into the lead character’s misfortune. Hit the jump to watch the Walk of Shame red-band trailer.  The film also stars Gillian JacobsSarah Wright OlsenKevin NealonEthan SupleeBill Burr, and Willie GarsonWalk of Shame will be released in theaters and VOD on May 2nd.

Paul Walker’s Brothers Caleb and Cody to Help the Production of Fast & Furious 7

18 hours ago

Earlier this month, production resumed on Fast & Furious 7.  Filming had halted following the death of Paul Walker last November, and while it's still not exactly clear how the production will handle the actor's remaining scenes or even the overall story, they've announced that they've enlisted the help of Walker's brothers Caleb and Cody.  It was rumored that Cody might step in and work on some of Paul's remaining scenes, and while the announcement doesn't specify how Walker's brothers will be assisting the production, I assume they'll be working as body doubles and handling wide shots where they'll resemble Paul at a distance.  While the production could have just hired anyone who matched Walker's height and build, I think this is a more respectful route, and one that will probably result in a better film since there's a personal connection as opposed to a stranger stepping in. Hit the jump for the full announcement. »

Warner Bros. to Release Magic Mike 2 on July 3, 2015

19 hours ago

Warner Bros. has set the Magic Mike 2 release date for July 3, 2015.  2015 is already ridiculously crowded, but I have to admire a studio scheduling the sequel to an indie dramedy about male strippers for one of the biggest blockbuster weekends of the year.  Even better, it will face off against Terminator: Genesis, and while audiences are used to getting their big action fix on the July 4th weekend, I wouldn't rule out Magic Mike 2 as highly effective counter-programming.  There's more than one way to set off fireworks.  One of those ways involves cock pumps. In a recent interview, Magic Mike 2 star Channing Tatum said that "everyone" will likely return for the sequel.  I hope that the movie is good and that they'll be seeing a lot of laaawwwwwbreakers.

V/H/S Director David Bruckner in Talks to Helm Friday The 13th Reboot

20 hours ago

Paramount Pictures has found its director for the new Friday the 13th reboot.  The Wrap reports that genre director David Bruckner is in talks to take the helm of the pic, which Paramount hopes will kick off a new Friday the 13th franchise.  The studio previously attempted to breathe new life into Jason Voorhees with a 2009 redo helmed by Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), but it never moved forward with further films.  Bruckner has experience in the horror genre having directed the 2007 pic The Signal and the segment “Amateur Night” for the 2012 anthology film V/H/S, so it’ll be interesting to see what his take on Friday the 13th entails. Just as with the previous reboot, Michael Bay will produce this new film through his Platinum Dunes banner.  The pic already has a March 13, 2015 release date staked out, so if Bruckner’s deal closes the new Friday the 13th »

Channing Tatum Says He’s Met about Playing Gambit; Reveals “Everyone” Will Likely Be Back for Magic Mike 2

20 hours ago

Though few can rival Matthew McConaughey in the realm of “career renaissance” at the moment, Channing Tatum has undergone a fascinating transformation over the past few years.  He first broke out as a model-slash-actor in the first Step Up, but he began branching out with Steven Soderbergh’s 2011 film Haywire.  He subsequently collaborated with Soderbergh on two more films to excellent results—Magic Mike and Side Effects—and proved himself a very skilled comedic actor with turns in 21 Jump Street and This Is the End.  His upcoming films range from dark drama (Foxcatchter) to hard sci-fi/fantasy (Jupiter Ascending), and there are also a few more exciting prospects on the horizon. During a recent interview with MTV, Tatum revealed that he has indeed met about playing Gambit in a potential X-Men spinoff film, expressing his love for the character and willingness to tackle the role.  He also provided an update »
