How do you stop an enemy you can’t see coming? That’s the basis behind Spectral, Netflix’s original sci-fi feature, which got its first official trailer today.
Once set to be a summer tentpole release under Universal, Netflix took over the reigns. Not known for their extensive marketing campaigns, this first look at their expensive new sci-fi project comes a mere week before it hits the streaming site. It finds James Badge Dale, Emily Mortimer and Bruce Greenwood as a special-ops team fighting a race of supernatural aliens attacking the world. While the trailer doesn’t give away a lot in terms of plot, it does showcase a great deal in terms of scope, proving that Netflix is willing to pay top dollar to provide high-grade cinema to their audience. Here’s hoping Spectral‘s story is given as much care as its high-quality special effects were.

Terrible movies are fascinating and this day and age seem far more frequent. I don’t want to be one of these bandwagon hopping pitchfork wielding mob types who screams bloody murder over the terrible amount of sequels, prequels, and reboots happening in Hollywood right now. Not unless these metaphorical pitchforks transformed into real ones I was allowed the opportunity of ten minutes in a soundproof room with whomever is responsible for the abomination that is Independence Day: Resurgence.
Oh sweet Bard, help me find the words to properly describe this experience of watching this weird wet fart of a feature film. Imagine passing a pine cone through your rectum. And right behind that pine cone is a porous container of hot sauce and hydrochloric acid. Once you complete this gargantuan task of passing these random items through your colon, the »

One of the inspirations for the Superman character, “Doc Savage” is the story of a man with superheroic levels of intelligence and strength (who happens to be a brilliant scientist, inventor, and explorer), which began as a series of pulp novels and a radio series.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is hitting theaters in two weeks. That’s not an endorsement or a condemnation so much as a piece of information with which you can choose to do just about anything. Like back out of this page. Or hold your head in your hands. Or, if you’re a fan of Paramount’s live-action take on the half-shell heroes, click through all of the new stills from the blockbuster sequel.
You won’t find anyone more apathetic about this franchise than me, so all I can tell you is that the pic will find Raphael, Leonardo, Michaelangelo, and Donatello all working together to fend off the Foot Clan and Shredder (Brian Tee), while preparing for the arrival of Krang (Brad Garrett). Some people might understand some of the words in that sentence, »

I hate making claims like the one you’re about to read, but here goes nothing: Pandemic is the Alien Outpost of 2016 – assuredly my most inconsequential critical comparison. “Alien Outpost” will mean nothing to the hordes who never discovered its existence, and I’m confident that many of you might never have heard of a little first-person thriller called Pandemic until now. But that’s why I’m here! It’s my job to constantly chug away at a never-ending pile of horror’s lesser publicized efforts while insomnia sets in and the voices keep me company.
In this who’s who of “where are they now” talents from Hollywood’s yesteryear, director John Suits dives head-first into a zombie plague that’s a little bit 28 Days Later, a tad Battlefield La (in feel), and reminiscent of Rec (not in quality, though). Beginning as any video game would (an introductory tutorial »

Back in January, many fans were surprised to see the first trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, attached to prints of Paramount's 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, since it was the first we've heard this title. While the title was certainly new, the project itself was not, having gone into development under titles such as Valencia and The Cellar. Now that the movie opened in theaters this weekend, taking in an impressive $25.2 million, new details have surfaced from The Film Stage regarding the original ending. There will be Spoilers below, so if you haven't seen 10 Cloverfield Lane yet, read on at your own risk.
Shortly after the trailer debuted in January, a new report detailed how this film transformed from Valencia and The Cellar to 10 Cloverfield Lane. The project was put into development several years ago under the Paramount Insurge banner, a specialty division for micro-budget projects that cost under $5 million. »
A few years back, it was announced that Neal H. Moritz, the producer behind cinematic acts of subtlety like "Furious 7," "Jack the Giant Slayer," "Battle: Los Angeles," "S.W.A.T," "Stealth," and "I Am Legend," was going to push ahead with a remake of Jacques Audiard's Oscar-nominated "A Prophet." It sent a chill down our spine, but luckily, there was no further news.....until today.... Read More: Novelist Denis Lehane Tapped To Pen Remake Of 'A Prophet' Deadline report that Sam Raimi is in early talks to direct the movie. Not the most obvious choice, but an interesting one, and let's not forget, Raimi has shown a penchant for surprises (check out his lean and nifty little thriller "A Simple Plan"). There is also a bit of silver lining to cling to as Dennis Lehane ("The Drop," "The Wire," "Mystic River") is penning screenplay, and »
