First 'The Purge: Election Year' Trailer Tries to Murder Politicians

just now

When The Purge hit theaters in 2013, people gleefully suspended their disbelief for its seemingly impossible future where America has instituted a policy that legalizes all crime for one night a year. It's one of those ludicrous plots, like The Day After Tomorrow, that you look at and think, "It's so absurd and unrealistic that I'm kind of into it." Fast forward three years and the political climate in America has gotten so unpredictable that the very notion of The Purge weirdly doesn't seem as broadly impossible as it did just three years ago. It's not like we're on the immediate verge of a government sanctioned night of murder and mayhem, but the nightly news these days is shockingly more twisty and unpredictable than the plots of the actual...

The Creator of 'Deadpool' Made an Awesome Mondo Poster (Exclusive)

just now

Deadpool is all about breaking the fourth wall and directly addressing his audience with the kinds of references that cause pop culture to touch itself. The character wasn't always that way, though. When Rob Liefeld created him in the '90s, Deadpool won a legion of fans as a mercenary with a biting sense of humor, with the more overtly meta side of the character evolving in comics and games in the years after his debut. But now that the movie is almost out, Deadpool's creator has gotten into a bit of the meta fun himself by creating a stunning, delightfully self-aware Mondo poster for Deadpool. Yes, the one and only Rob Liefeld made a Deadpool poster for the one and only Mondo and it is our great pleasure to show it to you. But first, some words from Liefeld...

Watch: Go Behind the Terrifying Scenes of 'The Witch'

1 hour ago

When writer-director Robert Eggers set out to make The Witch, it was imperative that the world they created was as accurate and grounded to the period as possible. This way, the witch would be as believable to today's audience as it would have been to the people of the era in which the story takes place. In this Fandango Movieclips exclusive featurette, Robert Eggers and cast members Anya Taylor-Joy and Kate Dickie discuss the creation of the 17th-century New England setting and how it becomes a character in the film. The Witch enchants theaters February 19.

The Art of ‘Deadpool’: Chatting with the Movie’s Credits Artist

1 hour ago

As a comic book fan, illustrator, graphic designer and the title and end-credits creator of some of the most visually dynamic films of the moment, Justin Harder's living multiple dreams – and bringing them to life for others to share. Harder's lavishly executed and animated title-sequence work has enlivened the credits of films like Thor: The Dark World, The Book of Life and Lazer Team, and his most recent effort opens Deadpool, the film debut of Marvel Comics' "Merc with a Mouth." "It's so important for these superhero movies," he says. "Everyone's now watching to see what these title sequences are at the end, which is really cool for us. The bar is being raised each time." It's safe to say Harder really got into...

When Romance Goes Horror-ibly Wrong

1 hour ago

We all love to fall in love and to be in love, but sometimes, sadly, things go wrong and relationships don't work out no matter how hard we try. This is a common refrain in many romantic dramas, but when it comes to horror movies, the stakes can be a Lot higher.

In honor of the ardent desire to make a love connection, no matter how fraught with danger, we present our selection of recent and notably well-made horror-romances. They all feature characters who aren't afraid to put their lives on the line in the pursuit of true love.   Crimson Peak (2015) Guillermo del Toro's gorgeous gothic romance revolves around the...

Watch Johnny Depp as Donald Trump in 'The Art of the Deal: The Movie'

3 hours ago

It's not uncommon to find star-studded movie parodies from Funny or Die. But they're usually in the form of fake trailers. That is, they're short little sketches. Well, now the site has outdone itself with a 50-minute mock adaptation of the 1987 best seller Trump: The Art of the Deal. It's called Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie. It's supposed to play like it's a TV movie made by Donald Trump himself -- handling the writing, directing, editing, soundtrack and starring himself -- and hidden away for the past 28 years. In reality it's the work of Drunk History co-creator Jeremy Konner and features a remarkable cast of character actors and '80s pop culture references. Here's why it might just be the most...

Here's How Deadpool Can Be Used in the PG-13 'X-Men' Movies

4 hours ago

One of the biggest questions fans have with regards to an R-rated Deadpool movie is whether using the character in a movie that's, say, rated PG-13 will water him down in some way. It's a valid crticicism -- after all, once you introduce this foul-mouthed raunchy R-rated version of the character and then put him in a movie where none of that language is allowed, will that deliver fans a version that doesn't feel as authentic? Could it hurt the entire Deadpool franchise? (And yes, we say franchise because the writers of Deadpool are currently hard at work on a sequel. We will see a Deadpool 2!) We sat down with Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld and asked him about this since it's an ongoing debate with all superhero movies these days playing into a larger connected...

New Trailer for 'High-Rise' Introduces Tom Hiddleston Into a World of Perversion

23 hours ago

There's an interesting pattern that tends to happen when an actor becomes a seemingly overnight obession due to a pop culture megahit. They pull a 180 and do a movie that's radically different from what made them famous. We saw it happen when Kristen Stewart transitioned away from the Twilight franchise and became one of the most sought after actresses in independent cinema. Her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson took a similar direction, shifting away from glossy Hollywood and into more gritty, haunting fare like Cosmopolis and The Rover. And now it's Tom Hiddleston's turn to take the indie plunge.  Hiddleston, who turned Loki from a simple trickster to a villain people kind of want to see win just so they can see more of him, stars in High-Rise, a very...

Everything We Know About the New 'Jason Bourne'

9 February 2016 6:30 PM, PST

"Why would he come back now? asks Tommy Lee Jones in the brief trailer for Jason Bourne that debuted during the Super Bowl. That's a good question, as it's been nine years since we last saw the title character, in The Bourne Ultimatum (he was absent from the 2012 spinoff The Bourne Legacy). Fortunately, we have some answers, care of Matt Damon via Entertainment Weekly. Here's all we know about the upcoming sequel:   Seriously, why is Bourne back now?   As far as why the franchise has brought the character back, Damon and director Paul Greengrass finally saw enough change in the world for there to be an interesting story. "There’s been the financial collapse, the great recession, all these issues of cyber warfare and civil liberties...

Reel TV: The New 'Star Trek' Recruits 'Hannibal' Mastermind to Run the Show

9 February 2016 5:00 PM, PST

We live in an age of fractured, multi-universe storytelling. You can blame multimedia licensing agreements that started long, long ago. They're the reason the X-Men can't be in a Marvel Studios movie, they're the reason The CW's The Flash will be a different version of Justice League's The Flash, and they're the reason we'll soon have two different Star Trek universes. That last part actually isn't too terrible, though. The J.J. Abrams version of the Star Trek universe is only seven years old and while it is a perfectly cast version of Trek, it's not traditional TV Trek. It's not all about boldly going where no man has gone before. It's not about a vision of the future that has evolved beyond the problems of contemporary Earth society...

Lupita Nyong'o and Ava DuVernay Touted for Sci-Fi Thriller 'Intelligent Life'

9 February 2016 1:30 PM, PST

After winning an Academy Award as best supporting actress for her sterling performance in the historical drama 12 Years a Slave in 2014, Lupita Nyong'o has taken a different path than might be expected. Barely 20 years of age, Nyong'o only had a scant few screen credits when she landed her startling role in Steve McQueen's harrowing drama about slavery. Since then, she appeared in a supporting turn as a flight attendant in the Liam Neeson action thriller Non-Stop and then showed up as the motion-captured character Maz Kanata in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Next she's set to costar in Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book, voicing the mother wolf Raksha; that's set for release on April 15. But when will the very promising actress get a role that's worthy of...

Movie News: New 'Saw' Sequel on Its Way; 'Divergent: Ascendant' Needs a Director, Stat!

9 February 2016 12:00 PM, PST

Saw: The gritty, gruesome Saw horror movie series began in 2004 and concluded with Saw 3D: The Final Chapter in 2010. Now, however, a new installment, Saw: Legacy, is under development by Lionsgate. Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger (Sorority Row, Piranha 3D) have been hired to write the screenplay.
