New Trailer for Let’S Be Cops Starring Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr.

24 minutes ago

20th Century Fox has released a new Let's Be Cops trailer.  Directed by Luke Greenfield’s (The Girl Next Door), the film stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as two friends who impersonate police officers using rented uniforms and a car purchased on eBay, but in the midst of all their fun they run into trouble with a dangerous Russian mobster.  The film also stars Nina Dobrev, Rob Riggle, James D’Arcy, and Keegan-Michael Key. Like I said in the intro to my CinemaCon video interview with Johnson and Wayans Jr., while Let's Be Cops wasn't on my radar when the movie was filming, everything I've seen so far makes me think we might have the sleeper comedy of the summer.  The movie looks really funny and I'm very happy it's going to be a hard R comedy.  Johnson and Wayans Jr. told me the film is like an 80s movies with crazy comedy, »

Trailer, Poster, and Images for Found-Footage Horror Film As Above, So Below

34 minutes ago

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released a trailer, poster, and images for the found-footage horror film As Above, So Below.  The story centers on a team of explorers that venture into the catacombs beneath Paris and possibly stumble upon a gate to hell.  And if there's going to be a gate to hell, it makes sense it would be underneath Paris.  You'd be rude to everyone too if you knew you were living on top of the damned.  As for the trailer, it looks surprisingly good, and I say that as someone who feels the found-footage horror subgenre is played out.  Also, the poster is easily one of the best of the year thus far. Hit the jump to check out the As Above, So Below trailer, poster, and images.  The film opens on August 15th, and stars Perdita Weeks (The Invisible Woman), Ben Feldman (Mad Men), and Edwin Hodge »

Ian Somerhalder and Producer Caroline Dries Talk The Vampire Diaries, Upcoming Character Deaths, Unexpected Consequences, and More

1 hour ago

With just a handful of episodes left to Season 5 of The CW series The Vampire Diaries, there’s no way to predict who will make it out alive.  Enzo is seeking an eye for an eye, The Travelers sole focus is on finding a permanent home, the Other Side is disintegrating, and Caroline is suppressing a crush that could hurt a friendship.  And in Episode 19, “Man on Fire,” viewers will get to flashback to 1960 and finally learn what really happen to Enzo’s true love, Maggie. During this recent interview to discuss what’s still to come this season and into the next, actor Ian Somerhalder (“Damon Salvatore”) and executive producer/writer Caroline Dries talked about how the events of this episode will affect the friendship between Damon and Enzo (Michael Malarkey), where Damon and Elena (Nina Dobrev) will be for the rest of this season, where The Travelers are at, »

New IMAX Poster and Japanese Trailer for Godzilla Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Bryan Cranston

2 hours ago

A new IMAX poster and Japanese trailer have been released for Godzilla, and the trailer doesn't tell us much.  It's kind of cool that the studios have managed to keep the plot under wraps for this long.  If you're not going to fully reveal the monster, why reveal any unnecessary details about the plot?  It's GodzillaGodzilla fights other monsters.  Humanity tries not to die.  Roll credits.  As for these new pieces of marketing, the film gets another great poster (I'd be disappointed if the IMAX poster for Godzilla was weak) and the Japanese trailer has some bits of new footage.  However, I was surprised to learn that the movie doesn't open in Japan until July 25th.  Why do they get it months after we do?  Japan is Godzilla's home! Hit the jump to check out the Godzilla IMAX poster and Japanese trailer.  Click here for our recap of the WonderCon panel, »

Moone Boy Season 2 Review: Chris O’Dowd’s Comedy as Weird and Charming as Ever

2 hours ago

On Thursday, April 24th, new episodes of the excellent comedy series Moone Boy (which originally aired in the U.K. on Sky1) will return to online streaming provider Hulu. Each season of the half-hour show only runs six episodes, making it a scrumptious morsel that's easy to devour quickly (and if you haven't already devoured the first season, remedy that immediately).  Moone Boy focuses on 12-year-old Martin Moon (David Rawle) and his imaginary friend Sean (Chris O'Dowd), and their many misadventures in Martin's home town of Boyle, Ireland.  Season Two starts in 1990, but doesn't wear out that fact with too many jokes about fads and historical hindsight (although those that exist are well-placed, like Martin's love of Ghostbusters, or his sister Trisha's [Aoife Duffin] mourning over Talking Heads breaking up). Ireland is as lush and as important a player in the second season as it was in the first -- O'Dowd (and »

The Hobbit: There And Back Again Retitled The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies

2 hours ago

Last week, we reported that The Hobbit: There and Back Again might be retitled "The Hobbit: Into the Fire", a subtitle taken from one of the chapters in the book.  The subtitle "There and Back Again" was from when there were only two Hobbit movies, and it provided a nice connective tissue to when Bilbo (Ian Holm) hands over "There and Back Again: A Hobbit's Tale" over to Frodo (Elijah Wood) in The Fellowship of the Ring.  But connective tissue doesn't sell movies, and a soft title like "There and Back Again" doesn't have the active verbs required to sell tickets.  The third and final Hobbit movie will now be titled, "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies", which is a pretty self-explanatory title.  There will be five armies and a big battle.  For those who haven't read the book, I shall say no more.  As far as a title, »

Joss Whedon Talks Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Making “Everything a Robot Never Is”

3 hours ago

In the comics, the villain Ultron has lots and lots of powers, and I doubt all of them will be making it into Avengers: Age of Ultron.  But beyond his superpowers, there's the question of his personality.  Writer-director Joss Whedon is clearly relishing the chance to bring this unique baddie to the screen, and he spoke with Empire about the experience.  "I'm having a blast with Ultron," Whedon said. "He's not a creature of logic - he's a robot who's genuinely disturbed. We're finding out what makes him menacing and at the same time endearing and funny and strange and unexpected, and everything a robot never is."  When Whedon lays out the character like this, it makes me even more excited that they got James Spader to do the voice. Hit the jump for more on what Whedon had to say beyond talking about the Avengers 2 villain.  The film also stars Robert Downey Jr., »

Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg Talks Arrow, “Seeing Red” Spoilers, and What It Means for the Story and Characters Going Into Season 3

12 hours ago

So much is happening on the final few episodes of Arrow Season 2 that any of them could have been a season finale.  Story twists, character reveals and deaths have almost become expected, as things continue to escalate towards yet another and even bigger showdown between The Arrow (Stephen Amell) and Deathstroke (Slade Wilson). During this recent interview to talk about the remaining episodes this season, executive producer/writer Andrew Kreisberg addressed the big reveals of Episode 20, “Seeing Red,” and what it means for the story and characters, going forward.  Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some major spoilers. Before getting to the interview, here's our recap of Episode 20, "Seeing Red." Question:  How did you come to the choice of killing off Moira?  Was it something you’d been thinking about for awhile? Andrew Kreisberg:  No, it wasn’t something we were talking about, »

The Americans Recap: “Martial Eagle”

14 hours ago

All season long, The Americans has addressed issues of loyalty and consequence.  What has made this season so powerful is the emotional connection Philip and Elizabeth have had to their work, and how deeply it has affected them.  Starting the season off with the gruesome deaths of their fellow spies set the stage and tone for what would follow, and the season's tight focus on just a few stories (which are now connecting) have made for an incredible arc of episodes.  No hour has been so dedicated to consequence as "Martial Eagle" though, a dark and difficult walk with Philip as he goes through crisis.  Hit the jump for why "I know this is war.  It's just easier for you." The long-planned mission to the military base finally took place in "Martial Eagle," but it couldn't have been more of a letdown for the Jennings.  As things went sideways, Philip »

Arrow Recap: “Seeing Red”

15 hours ago

This week's Arrow took a bit of a detour from what we're used to, as the gang went out in search of one of their own rather than spending the hour tracking down a typical baddie.  It seems that Roy (Colton Haynes) is not handling his injection of mirakuru well (or subsequent hook-up to a blood transfusion machine), and that has him tripping out on a mindless rage-filled bender.  Not good for the citizens of Starling City, and much worse for Arrow & Co.  Despite Roy's behavior forming the bulk of this episode's conflict, it was a real blindside of an ending that took viewers by surprise.  Hit the jump for my recap. No "Island Time" this week, but we do get to spend a bit of time with mopey, dopey, pre-island Oliver.  We'll save that sequence until the recap's end since it ties in well with the episode's final shocker. »

New Sex Tape Trailer Starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel

15 hours ago

Following up on the debut red band Sex Tape trailer, Sony has released a comparatively more chaste green band trailer.  Still raunchy enough, given the premise centers on a married couple (Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel) who films a sex tape to spice up their love life.  Their video is accidentally uploaded to "the cloud," which sends the couple through a series of hijinks to prevent everyone they know---their son, her boss, the mailman, Rob Corddry---from seeing the video. Ellie Kemper and Rob Lowe co-star in director Jake Kasdan's follow-up to Bad Teacher.  Sex Tape opens July 25.  Check out the Sex Tape trailer after the jump for a few new jokes. Official synopsis: When Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) first got together, their romantic connection was intense – but ten years and two kids later, the flame of their love needs a spark.  To kick things up a notch, »

Sean Bean, Ali Larter, Showrunner David Wilcox, and More Talk New TNT Spy Series Legends, Deviations from the Books, and More at WonderCon

15 hours ago

This August, TNT will premiere an intense new series from the producers of Homeland, centered around the FBI’s elite Deep Cover Operations (Dco) division.  Based on the book by spy novelist Robert Little, Legends stars Sean Bean as FBI agent Martin Odum, a specialist who can transform himself into anyone he needs to be.  His alternate identities, called “legends,” are so complex and thoroughly established that they almost take on lives of their own.  The show also stars Ali Larter as a fellow operative who has a history with Martin, Tina Majorino as technical expert Maggie Pool, and Morris Chestnut as another agent investigating Martin’s involvement in a murder case. The cast made an appearance at WonderCon last weekend, along with showrunner David Wilcox (Fringe), to talk about what audiences can expect from the show and, naturally, whether the infamously death-prone (on screen, at least) Bean will actually »

Trailer and Teaser Poster for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood Starring Ellar Coltrane, Ethan Hawke, and Patricia Arquette

18 hours ago

IFC Films has released the trailer and teaser poster for BoyhoodRichard Linklater's remarkable film follows the life of Mason (Ellar Coltrane) over the course of 12 years, dropping in to view pivotal scenes in his life from the age of 6 to 18.  Viewers also see his sister Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), their mother Olivia (Patricia Arquette), and father Mason Sr. (Ethan Hawke) age alongside him.  No matter how the film is eventually received by critics and audiences alike, the idea behind Boyhood is a commendable one that eschews traditional schedules, casting age-appropriate actors to fill in the gaps, and even cutting-edge aging make-up.  Linklater has chosen, instead, to let the natural path of life carve its way forward for each of his actors; that alone makes this a film worth watching.

Scarlett Johansson and Lupita Nyong’o in Talks to Join Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book

18 hours ago

Director Jon Favreau continues to firm up the cast for his live-action/CG hybrid take on The Jungle Book.  We learned last month that Idris Elba will provide the voice of Shere Khan in the Disney adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic, and now Heat Vision reports that Scarlett Johansson and Oscar-winning 12 Years a Slave actress Lupita Nyong’o are in negotiations to join the pic as well.  Hit the jump for more on the nature of their roles. Johansson and Nyong’o should make for excellent additions to the Jungle Book cast, though it appears that the two will only appear in voice form.  Heat Vision reports that Johansson is in early talks to voice Kaa, the python that lures its prey through hypnotization (spot on casting there, Favreau), while Nyong’o is in final negotiations to play Rakcha, the mother wolf who adopts Mowgli.  It’s unclear if »
