Welcome to the “Preview Reel” column, where we look at the week’s upcoming wide-release movies. Annabelle: Creation scared away the competition last week with an impressive $35 million. The summer box office is starting to wind down and we have two intriguing, but mostly low-profile releases this week; the buddy comedy The Hitman’s Bodyguard and the Nascar heist flick, Logan Lucky. Both look to tickle your funny bone, let’s see if either will succeed.
The Hitman’s Bodyguard
What we are excited about: The one-two punch of Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson is almost enough for us to get our butts in theaters. Add in the fact that it’s a “buddy” comedy, and we’re sold. The trailers have been leaning heavily on the two actor’s comedic chops, and for good reason as these are two of Hollywood’s funniest men. Hopefully the film will »

Teen Wolf Collector's Edition Blu-ray: "He Always Wanted To Be Special … But He Never Expected This!
Like all teenagers, Scott Howard (Michael J. Fox, the Back To The Future trilogy) is going through some … changes. But unlike the rest of the students at Beacontown High School, Scott's changes include long hair that covers his entire body, claw-like fingernails, fangs, a heightened sense of smell, superhuman strength and the extraordinary ability to … play basketball?

Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman go way back, so it's only fitting that she would do what best friends do and embarrass the crap out of him in public. During his Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on Wednesday, the actress gave a speech about her old friend while flashing hilarious and cringeworthy photos of him growing up for the audience. The two have starred in multiple movies together like The Break-Up and Horrible Bosses, and Jen poked fun at Jason's long career when talking about her "partner in crime." "One thing has proven itself to be true and that is having longevity in this business is not easy . . . especially starting out as a child actor," she said. "Usually that's a story that doesn't always end well. When I actually met Jason it was kind of looking like it could go either way." What made the day even better was Jason's 5-year-old daughter, »

Jennifer Aniston may be a horrible boss, but she's definitely a really great friend. The 48-year-old superstar turned up on Hollywood Blvd. earlier today to honor her former Horrible Bosses co-star and longtime pal Jason Bateman at his Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Ceremony. The touching and also hilarious speech told of the twosome's long and storied friendship and the many iterations that it, along with Bateman's career, has taken. In the speech, Aniston spoke about the Ozark actor's lengthy career which began in 1982 with a recurring role on Little House on the Prairie and that despite all the odds has continued for more than 35 more years. Speaking of her "partner in »
If you grew up in the 1980s, and you were a connoisseur of small-screen culture, then you remember Jason Bateman as the preppy, freckled and precociously winsome Derek Taylor, the comic foil to Ricky Schroder’s tow-headed teenage heartthrob on the NBC sitcom “Silver Spoons.”
“I was still just a little kid, kind of a wise ass in my normal life and kind of troubled around school, and there was a natural mischievousness to me, and I remember that character sort of lent itself to that part of me,” says Bateman, who is receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 26. “I enjoyed that role, because I could be that kind of kid and not get in trouble for it. I could actually get compensated for it, which was kind of nice. I was like, ‘Ok, maybe I’ll be a character actor, I’ll be in comedy.’ I »

There are few projects that should inspire a bad case of nerves for a screenwriter like Spider-Man: Homecoming.
The pressure was immense, with the landmark film bringing together two studios, attempting to right the ship after 2014's Amazing Spider-Man 2 — and most importantly, launching the first Spider-Man movie to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But screenwriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley didn't have the luxury of psyching themselves out. The pair, largely know for comedies such as Horrible Bosses and 2015's Vacation, had just three days to put together a pitch for Marvel.

Spider-Man made his long-awaited return to the Marvel fold in last year's Captain America: Civil War, but Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the web slinger's first solo outing within the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe -- a fact Marvel Studios won't soon let you forget, either, ingraining Spidey deeply within its franchise: The Avengers Tower is prominently featured in the posters. Iron Man is on hand to play a mentoring role, while Captain America pops up for increasingly great cameos. Students at Midtown High School study the Sokovia Accords in history class. The Battle of New York serves as the genesis for the bad guy's villainy.
Homecoming begins with a prologue set shortly after the events of The Avengers. Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton) heads a post-battle cleanup operation, salvaging materials left behind by the Chitauri aliens, until Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and his Department of Damage Control put Toomes out of a job.

The dark drama stars Jason Bateman (“Horrible Bosses,” “Arrested Development,” “The Gift”) and Laura Linney (“The Truman Show,” “The Exorcism of Emily Rose,” “Primal Fear”) as Marty and Wendy Byrde, a couple who lives in the suburbs of Chicago. Their seemingly picturesque lives take a turn when Marty’s dealings with a drug cartel go awry and the family has to relocate to a summer resort community in the Missouri Ozarks.
Bateman takes a hands on approach with this new series as its star, as well as executive producing and »
