Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” came into focus on Monday at Sony Pictures’ CinemaCon 2017 opening night presentation.

A group of misbehaving teens find the console during a detention session in their high school and are transported into the game itself where they take on altar-ego avatars played by Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and stunning newcomer Karen Gillan.

Sony Film Head Debuts ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Trailer, Disses Competition: ‘Netflix My Ass’

8 hours ago

After screening an incredible trailer for “Blade Runner 2049,” Sony’s Motion Picture Group Chairman Tom Rothman took a swipe at Netflix. “Netflix my ass,” Rothman said, referring to the scope of the film. “Let’s see you watch this on that.” Rothman was referring to the experience of watching the trailer on the big screen at CinemaCon 2017. In his defense, he was certainly preaching to the choir, as the convention is the annual gathering of American movie theater owners.

Keanu Reeves Fans Caused That Bomb Scare at CinemaCon 2016

9 hours ago

Some overzealous movie theater exhibitors — and Keanu Reeves — were the cause of a security scare at CinemaCon in 2016. Unattended backpacks prompted security protocols for a bomb scare following Lionsgate’s presentation last year, which was meant to end with screening the entirety of their magic thriller “Now You See Me 2.” Just before the movie began, Reeves came out to hype “John Wick 2” for the annual convention of American movie exhibitors. Two representatives from an unnamed theater chain bolted to try to meet him — and when they didn’t return, their seat mates got suspicious. Also Read: 5 Reasons »

Burt Bacharach is being sued by his dog sitter, who claims the Academy Award-winning composer’s dog bit off two of his fingers.

‘Latin History for Morons’ Theater Review: John Leguizamo Explains It All

9 hours ago

The major cliché of today’s theater criticism is that even a slightly dystopian play must be reviewed through the discolored prism of Donald Trump’s presidency. Finally, I have to jump on the bandwagon. John Leguizamo gives us a one-man show that fully warrants unkind references to the 45th president of the United States, as well as Rep. Steve King of Iowa. It’s called “Latin History for Morons,” which opened Monday at the Public Theater, and while it’s an apt title, Leguizamo’s 90-minute show may best be enjoyed by theatergoers who are very familiar with the last 3,000 years of life. »
