Film Review: ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul’

Until the dread day when CGI replaces actors outright, there will be dilemmas like the one that faced makers of the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” features: After three films adapted from Jeff Kinney’s hugely popular books, the juvenile thespians aged out of their roles. There’s been some fan grumbling about their unfortunate if inevitable replacement in “The Long Haul,” which reboots the series after a five-year layoff. But the entirely new cast steps in seamlessly — in some instances they might actually be improved models — and returning producer-director David Bowers, this time sharing screenplay credit with Kinney himself, delivers an amiable, fast-paced entry that should win over fans.

The ninth volume so far (No. 12 is due this fall), “Long Haul” isn’t necessarily among the best, but it provides the Heffley family with various changes of scenery that sufficiently differentiate this latest screen installment from its predecessors. The

Exclusive Interview: Johnathon Schaech on ‘Southern Fury’ & Working with Nicolas Cage

This weekend brought us the latest Nicolas Cage release, Southern Fury, a film about two brothers that find themselves in a sticky situation with a crime kingpin. I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to chat to one of the lead stars, Johnathon Schaech, who plays Mikey Lindel in the film.

Schaech is a talented actor, who’s work spans the likes of many B-films like Southern Fury, and Marauders, as well as various TV appearances in shows such as Quantico, and – most notably – he took on the role of DC’s beloved antihero Jonah Hex in The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow. I had the chance to chat to him about Southern Fury, and we talked about B-films, working with Nicolas Cage and about Legends. Check it out:

What was it about Southern Fury that initially attracted you to the project?

Showtime drama “Ray Donovan” airs its Season 4 finale on Sunday night, up against the Emmy Awards (where the show is nominated for the performances of stars Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight, in addition to a directing nod for showrunner David Hollander). The show has already scooped one award in this year’s Emmy race, nabbing Guest Actor in a Drama Series for Hank Azaria at last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys.

The season began with Ray’s burgeoning friendship with professional boxer Hector Campos (Ismael Cruz Cordova), a fellow abuse survivor who had also turned to the church to try and get a fresh start. In a striking turn of events, Hector told Ray about one of his darkest secrets — his incestuous relationship with half-sister Marisol (Lisa Bonet).

After Hector snapped and killed Marisol for publicly revealing their controversial relationship, he asked Ray to solve the mess. However, as Variety’s exclusive sneak peek reveals, Hector

Showtime Debuts First Trailer And Poster For Ray Donovan Season 4, Premiere Set For June 26

Liev Schreiber’s illustrious fixer Ray Donovan may have spent the majority of last season at odds with the Armenian mafia – collecting more than a few physical scars to prove it – but the show’s upcoming season 4 finds our no-nonsense protagonist attempting to reconnect with his estranged daughter.

Set for premiere on June 26, Schreiber’s battle-worn hitman has been through the wringer at this point in Ann Biderman’s acclaimed series, though the first trailer proves more than anything that Ray Donovan has no intent of slowing up anytime soon – even after asking for forgiveness for his unspeakable sins.

I Kissed a Vampire Gets a Release Date and New Trailer

It's been months and months since we last provided an update on the rock musical I Kissed a Vampire, but word came today that the film has a brand new trailer and is being released at the end of this month. Read on for the details.

Synopsis:

In the vein of High School Musical, a desperate teen tries to save himself and the girl he loves after discovering he's transforming into a vampire. Haunted by bizarre dreams about Goth rocker Trey Sylvania (Drew Seeley) and experiencing a growing lust for blood, Dylan (Lucas Grabeel), a not-so-average teenager, finds himself transforming into a vampire! It all started when he was bitten by a voracious fanged exchange student, and it's a process he is desperate to stop - but how? His demented dentist can't do anything about Dylan's aching teeth and emerging fangs, and the anti-bloodsucking pills he gets from his para-psychologist just give him a rash.

The Plot: Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on a treacherous quest to hunt down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality — the Horcruxes.

The Buzz: I am the least qualified to helm a discussion on the buzz surrounding Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows. I’m the least qualified to discuss anything at all about Harry Potter, as I’ve read a mere ten pages of the first book, and only recently caught up with the films. That being said, having watched the first six films in swift succession, immersing myself in Rowling’s world, I
