Adam Sandler is back yet again with another Netflix original movie. Sandy Wexler is the third of four comedies that were part of his exclusive contact with the streaming service. And this might be the best one yet. Which, I'm sure, some of you will joke that it shouldn't be too hard to top The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over, but those have been some of Netflix's biggest original movies to date. Today, we get the first trailer for Sandy Wexler, and it's pure Sandler gold!
Sandy Wexler will do for the 90s what The Wedding Singer did for the 80s, bringing a shot of nostalgia straight to the veins of the Millennial generation. Though, Sandler let this one simmer a little bit longer. The Wedding Singer arrived in 1998, not even a decade after the 80s had passed, and not everyone was as nostalgic for the era as some teens »
Every year, there are certain patterns in film and TV that arise from marketing, cultural trends or simple financial success. Naturally, the Internet has become better and better at pointing these out, often through supercuts and video edits. Though we’re only a few weeks into 2017, there are plenty of these patterns to be sussed out, even if they’re only from movie trailers.

The YouTube account CinemaRaven has posted a video that compiles clips from 2017 movie trailers that feature the same sound effect: “a descending low digital drop,” in his words. Though some of the “drops” vary, many are exactly the same and all attempt to build tension (in an utterly contrived fashion) in order to best sell tickets for Hollywood’s big-budget films. Watch the video below.
The video features plenty of trailers for upcoming films. »

There are no hard feelings between Ice Cube and Vin Diesel. Even though the rapper came into replace the Fast and the Furious star on the first xXx sequel State of the Union, the two are on good terms. Xander Cage was 'killed off' in a short film leading up to the first sequel's release, but it has since been revealed that he's alive and well. And now he will be teaming up with Darius Stone for what promises to be one heck of an action movie climax!
Ice Cube's return in XXX: The Return of Xander Cage was supposed to be a surprise for fans. But his extended cameo has now been revealed in a new TV spot thanks to complex.com. And from the looks of things, the long-awaited team-up between Stone and Cage is going to be quite explosive.
You can rest assured, Darius is on Xander's side as he growls, »
When Warner Bros. announced its initial DC Extended Universe (Dceu) slate way back in the fall of 2014, Shazam was one of the projects listed as being a part of that superhero universe. Just a month before that announcement was made, news broke that action star Dwayne Johnson was taking on the role of the villainous Black Adam, but to this day, he remains the only confirmed cast member. That may change soon, with Dwayne Johnson's producing partner Hiram Garcia teasing that there will be a big announcement coming soon in regards to Shazam!. Here's what the producer had to say on social media.
"Great meeting today at @dccomics talkin' #Shazam #BlackAdam & more! Big things are coming. Get ready #JustSayTheWord"
Naturally, the producer wouldn't divulge what was discussed in this meeting, but it could be any number of things, from the casting of the title character himself, to the addition »
It has been about a year and a half since Mad Max: Fury Road took the world by storm and the love for that movie is still very palatable. But as time continues to press on, fans of the rejuvenated franchise are getting more and more eager to see another installment of George Miller's post-apocalyptic franchise. Star Tom Hardy has offered an encouraging, if frustrating, update on the state of the Mad Max: Fury Road sequels, the first of which is supposed to be Mad Max: The Wasteland.
Tom Hardy recently spoke with The Wrap in anticipation of his new FX series Taboo. The subject of the highly-anticipated follow-up to Mad Max: Fury Road came up and the actor offered an update, saying the movies appear to be on track, but he has no idea when they are going to start shooting. Here is what he had to say »
USA Today debuted an awesome new image from Justice League yesterday, but they also shared some stills from several other 2017 releases that should be of interest. Below you'll find a new shot of Katherine Waterston's Daniels from Alien: Covenant looking a little the worse for wear, as well as a pic of Star Lord (Chris Pratt) from the latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer. We also have another look at Belle (Emma Watson) and The Beast (Dan Stevens) from Disney's live-action retelling of Beauty and the Beast, and a new Transformers: The Last Knight pic featuring Laura Haddock and Mark Wahlberg. Check 'em out below, and click here for more images from the likes of Dunkirk and The Fate of the Furious. »
Xander Cage is, first and foremost, a daredevil. First introduced more than a decade ago in Rob Cohen’s gleefully over-the-top actioner xXx, over the years Cage has been unwittingly pushed to the sidelines as Vin Diesel’s attention was drawn to the Fast and Furious franchise.
Even at eight films in, Universal’s lucrative street-racing series continues to rake in the big numbers at the international box office – its latest installment, The Fate of the Furious, is on course for April 14, 2017 – but Diesel has carved out room on his busy schedule to revive his forgotten action hero, and so we stand on the cusp of xXx: Return Of Xander Cage.

AMC Entertainment Holdings has just ended a big year at the box office after completing acquisitions for Carmike Cinemas and Odeon & Uci in Europe and seeing domestic box office top $11 billion in 2016 for another industry record.
It's too soon for AMC Entertainment CFO Craig Ramsey to predict that 2017 will be another record year at the Hollywood box office, but he sees strong prospects from sequels like Furious 8: The Fate of the Furious, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Star Wars: Episode VIII now on deck.
"We see a lot of popular franchises coming back ... »

Hollywood types making grand and sometimes outrageous Oscar predictions are nothing new (for example, Vin Diesel talking up trophies for “The Fate Of The Furious“), but geez, we’re only a few days into 2017, and this year’s Oscars aren’t even over, and Ryan Reynolds is already making lofty proclamations about “Logan.”
The actor recently took some time out of doing a victory lap for “Deadpool” to talk up the Wolverine movie with Variety, and Reynolds predicted that James Mangold’s film could make awards season history where previous superhero movies have failed to contend beyond special effects, production design, and make-up categories.
