5 February 2016 3:02 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Now that Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus are back together, will he surprise her with a special Valentine's Day treat? The 28-year-old Australian hottie told E! News' Sibley Scoles Friday, more than a week before the holiday, that "sadly," he had not yet made any plans. "Maybe I'll make some though," he said. Hemsworth and Cyrus, 23, rekindled his romance more than a month ago, two years after they split and ended their engagement. Multiple sources told E!

Is Star Trek Beyond the worst teaser trailer ever?

4 February 2016 1:05 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on the trailer for Star Trek Beyond

First impressions. They’re so important, especially in the world of blockbuster cinema where the marketplace is saturated with high budgeted fare looking to snap its fingers and gain your attention for a fleeting moment. It’s been awhile since the wretched Star Trek Beyond trailer first hit the internet like a sack full of used diapers to the side of our head. It was late December. Everyone is basking in the warm glow of Star Wars and getting excited over new trailers for Batman v Superman and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Then, appearing from nowhere like a crew of Redshirts beamed in from transporter, the Star Trek Beyond trailer appeared. And like a crew of Redshirts it was quickly proven inept and slaughtered. People scoffed, members of the Trek family balked, and »

'Eddie the Eagle' Super Bowl Commercial Goes for the Gold

4 February 2016 11:23 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, a report surfaced teasing some of the possible movie-related trailers that will air during Super Bowl 50 this Sunday on CBS. While none of these were confirmed by the respective studios, the report claimed that 20th Century Fox was planning "on-the-ground events" for movies such as Eddie the Eagle, X-Men: Apocalypse and Independence Day: Resurgence, which hinted that we may in fact see new footage from these movies during the big game. Just three days before the Super Bowl, 20th Century Fox has officially released its trailer for Eddie the Eagle, which has a football twist.

While the 30-second spot does include footage from the movie, the video reveals that several past and present NFL stars were treated to an advanced screening of Eddie the Eagle, with three iconic quarterbacks offering their thoughts on this true story adaptation.

Schumer and Rogen Unite America in Bud Light Super Bowl Commerical

3 February 2016 1:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It used to be common practice for Super Bowl ads to actually debut during the big game itself, but things have changed in recent years. It's not at all uncommon for companies to release their commercials early online, and this week we have already seen Ryan Reynolds' Hyundai Super Bowl ad, where the actor has been cloned several times. The tradition continues today with Bud Light unveiling their 60-second ad, which features comedians Seth Rogen and Amy Schumer unveiling their campaign for the "Bud Light Party."

Since 2016 is an election year, this ad is even more timely, especially considering how divided Americans have become on several issues. The "Bud Light Party" plans to unify America through beer, with the ad highlighting their campaign, including their huge "caucus," and Seth Rogen reciting a memorable quote from the 1996 action classic Independence Day. Take a look at the comedy stars' official campaign platform below. »

Astronaut Comedy The Something Recruits Seth Rogen, Bill Hader And Zach Galifianakis

3 February 2016 7:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Comedic trio Seth Rogen, Bill Hader and Zach Galifianakis have enlisted for astronaut flick The Something, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Centering on a band of wayward explorers lost in space, the pitch comes by way of Rodney Rothman (22 Jump Street, Grudge Match), who is poised to make his directorial debut with the space-set comedy. Rogen will have a hand in producing The Something under his Point Grey Pictures banner, while Universal will handle distribution now that the project has been greenlit.

Cast astray in the inky blackness of space, Rothman’s feature will find Rogen, Hader and Galifianakis’ astronauts marooned among the stars for years, until they happen across another ship. But Event Horizon this is not, and given that the writer-director has cast such an impressive trio, it’s little wonder why Universal acted quickly to issue the go-ahead. It marks something of a reunion for Rogen and Hader, »

Latest Ghostbusters Images Feature Paul Feig’s Scientists In Regular Attire

3 February 2016 7:14 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Sony Pictures is beginning to dust off the proton packs and marketing machine in anticipation of Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, with today bringing forth a fresh batch of images featuring his supernatural heroines in regular attire. There’s also a shot of a bespectacled Chris Hemsworth, assuming the receptionist role made famous by Annie Potts across the original films.

Set to release in the thick of summer blockbuster season, Sony has bestowed a fair amount of confidence in Feig’s gender-swapped vision, though considering the cast that the Bridesmaids director has assembled, we can hardly blame the studio. Thrusting Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon onto the streets of New York, the movie will see their brilliant scientists ready to get a hold on the otherworldly chaos.

Reuniting with their fellow Bridesmaids cohort, Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy play Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, »

"Area 51" On Netflix

2 February 2016 6:56 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Recall the sensation the 'found footage' thriller "Paranormal Activity" created in 2009, with many believing the film was the best original horror film in years and director Oren Peli hailed as a major new voice in the sub-genre:

But in the six years following the release of the original "Paranormal Activity," Peli avoided directing and instead focused on producing a number of similar projects - until 2015, when he released "Area 51" to little fanfare, receiving mediocre reviews and, according to Box Office Mojo, earned less than $10,000 domestic at the box office (?!) A shocking low for the encore of a director perceived as an innovator less than a decade ago. 

But now the film is available on Netflix, getting another shot with a wide audience.

The idea of 'Area 51' as a secret government establishment related to a crashed alien spacecraft has become cliché over time, even though 'alien conspiracy' »

Miley Cyrus is making her way down the aisle - eventually. The singer, who recently got re-engaged to Liam Hemsworth, is already "fantasizing about their wedding," a source close to Cyrus tells People. "They don't have a date," the source says.

Hemsworth, 26, first proposed to Cyrus in 2012, but the couple later split the next year. Last month, Cyrus, 23, was spotted wearing her Neil Lane engagement ring before People confirmed the pair were back together. »

Are you ready for your first look at "The Bourne Betrayal"? Or "The Bourne Deception"? Or "The Bourne Something Else Entirely"? Matt Damon's return as Jason Bourne is still just being called "Bourne 5," but the official title and first trailer will supposedly be revealed this Sunday during the 2016 Super Bowl.

That scoop came from author Eric Van Lustbader, who took over the Boune series from Robert Ludlum. The author posted this news on Facebook, then deleted it:

Breaking News! The first trailer for the new Bourne film will be shown during this year's Superbowl telecast. At that time I believe you'll find out the title of the film. (I know it, but I'm sworn to secrecy). So tune in on February 7th to check out all the excitement. I, for one, can't wait!!!

Deadpool, X-Men, Bourne, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles among Super Bowl TV spots, but no Batman v Superman

30 January 2016 9:43 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Super Bowl 50 set to take place next weekend, The Hollywood Reporter has posted details on which studios have stumped up the $4.6 million for a 30-second commercial during the big game.

According to their sources, Fox has two 30-second spots and will likely air a commercial for Deadpool, with either X-Men: Apocalypse or Independence Day: Resurgence taking the other. The studio also plans major “on-the-ground” events for all three, in addition to the Taron Egerton / Hugh Jackman sports comedy Eddie the Eagle.

Universal has one 60-second spot, which is likely to be used to promote Matt Damon’s return to the Bourne franchise in Bourne 5, although outside possibilities are The Huntsman Winter’s War and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.

Paramount Pictures has confirmed that it will air a 30-second spot for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, while Disney is likely to advertise multiple titles, with its »

'X-Men', 'Independence Day', 'Tmnt 2' and More Will Invade Super Bowl 2016

29 January 2016 5:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Every year, the Super Bowl not only closes out the NFL season, but it gives advertisers a chance to showcase their goods and services on the biggest stage in television. Of course, some of these advertisers are the major movie studios, who always have a big presence during the game. During the lead-up to the Super Bowl, fans always try to guess which of their favorite upcoming movies will be promoted during this massive event, and today we have a report from The Hollywood Reporter which reveals which studios will be buying time during the game.

The site's sources claim that 20th Century Fox purchased two 30-second slots, one of which will most likely be used for Deadpool, while the other could be footage from X-Men: Apocalypse (May 27) or possibly Eddie the Eagle (February 26). While the studio wouldn't confirm which movies it plans on promoting, Deadpool is almost a given, »

Deadpool Set To Crash The Party At Next Month’s Super Bowl; Fox To Showcase Independence Day: Resurgence, X-Men: Apocalypse

29 January 2016 1:33 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

20th Century Fox’s marketing campaign for Deadpool knows no bounds, it seems, now that The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the Merc with a Mouth himself has been cordially invited to next month’s Super Bowl 2016.

Pegged for Sunday, February 7, the monumental sporting event is already playing host to the first-look trailer for Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon’s Bourne 5, though THR notes that Fox will have a major presence, too.

More News From The Web

Not only is the studio expected to debut a new TV clip during the Super Bowl, but sources close to the outlet claim that a number of publicity stunts are in the works for Tim Miller’s R-rated standalone feature, and going off Deadpool‘s excellent marketing campaign thus far, we can only imagine what insiders have cooking up for February 7.

Then again, Ryan Reynolds’ gun-toting mercenary isn’t the only film the studio plans to promote. »

These Movies Will Have Super Bowl TV Spots, But Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Won't

29 January 2016 12:58 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Deadpool is set to have a major presence at this year's Super Bowl with both a TV spot and Ryan Reynolds commandeering a food truck on Friday night to hand out chimichangas. The press junket will also take place in a nearby bar which is being renamed "Sister Margaret's Bar" after the one in the movie; there, Reynolds and T.J. Miller will take part in interviews, play darts, and serve drinks. The trade goes on to confirm that cast members from Independence Day: Resurgence and X-Men: Apocalypse will be on hand, while it's thought that both of those are getting TV spots too (they're two of 2016's biggest releases after all).  Universal are likely bringing The Hunstman's Winter War (even though online speculation points to Bourne 5), while Paramount will have some new footage from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows to show off. »

Which Movie Releases Should You Keep an Eye on in 2016?

11 January 2016 8:41 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

It’s likely that the ‘big’ films of 2016, like 2015, will largely comprise of the franchise sagas, sequels and spin-off titles that prove box office winners with some big titles in the pipeline. That said, there are some interesting ‘stand alone’ films and animations to look out for too as we eagerly await the year’s silver screen offerings.

DC Comics’ answer to Marvel

The ‘Marvel Cinematic Universe’ series provides hit after hit for the Disney subsidiary Marvel Studios, but its old comic rival DC is about to compete with a potentially huge release. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars two popular superheroes, and is the first of several titles scheduled by DC over the coming years. Shortly after ‘Batman v Superman’ hits the screens, Marvel’s next release will be in cinemas – Captain America: Civil War – is predicted to possibly be its biggest film yet. If it achieves its »

Will Smith Talks About His Character’s Fate In ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’

5 January 2016 5:02 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With 2016 now upon us, many keen, enthusiastic moviegoers across the globe have began to steadily increase their excitement for the incredible year of releases we have ahead of us. However, in age of unlimited blockbusters and CGI-saturated tentpoles, one thing that viewers are not crying out for is more alien invasion films.

Despite the fact that audiences have been subject to an abundance of alien-themed productions over the past few years, 20th Century Fox is still attempting to cash in on their success through this summer’s Independence Day 2 (aka Independence Day: Resurgence). The belated sequel to the (now twenty year old) 90’s smash hit will try to capitalize on the nostalgia and widespread guilty pleasure viewers feel for the original film.

However, the sequel will have the difficult task of achieving this without the help of its previous leading man, Will Smith. Of course, the first Independence Day helped »
