Good Boys: Jacob Tremblay Leads Crude Comedic Kids in Red Band Trailer

Joseph Baxter Mar 11, 2019

The trailer for comedy Good Boys takes the wonder of childhood and adds copious cursing and an array of explicit stuff.

Good Boys appears to be knocking on the genre door of the coarse comedies of the 2000s, notably the bellwether romp, Superbad; a notion that is especially emphatic with Seth Rogen – a producer on the film with repertory partner Evan Goldberg – appearing in an introduction to the comedy’s Red Band trailer.

While the main cast of this comedy – led by Room’s Jacob Tremblay – aren’t even teenagers, there’s a certain innate irony to the film, since, as Rogen points out in his preface, the young stars are not even close to being old enough to watch the trailer for their own movie – due to the things that they do in the film.

Gene Stupnitsky stepped into the Good Boys director’s chair, making his feature film debut.

First teaser poster for Good Boys

Ahead of its premiere at SXSW tomorrow, Universal Pictures has released a first teaser poster for Good Boys, the upcoming comedy from the creative minds behind Superbad, Pineapple Express and Sausage Party and starring Jacob Tremblay (The Predator), Brady Noon (Boardwalk Empire) and Keith L. Williams (The Last Man On Earth).

After being invited to his first kissing party, 12-year-old Max (Room’s Jacob Tremblay) is panicking because he doesn’t know how to kiss. Eager for some pointers, Max and his best friends Thor and Lucas decide to use Max’s dad’s drone – which Max is forbidden to touch – to spy (they think) on a teenage couple making out next door.

But when things go ridiculously wrong, the drone is destroyed. Desperate to replace it before Max’s dad gets home, the boys skip school and set off on an odyssey of epically bad decisions involving some accidentally stolen drugs,

Jean-Claude Van Damme Explains Why He Exited Predator

If someone told you that Jean-Claude Van Damme was briefly the star of 1987’s Predator before dropping out, you might assume that he was in the action hero role eventually handled by Arnold Schwarzenegger. The reality, however, is a fair bit more intriguing and ultimately kind of depressing.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Van Damme reflected on his time spent in the uncomfortable costume of the Predator himself. As it turns out, he found it to be a physically demanding experience, right from the first audition:

“I came to the studio and they made me run around and I jump, and they say, ‘This guy can jump very high so yes, he’s in.’”

Once the outfit went on, the star had trouble breathing, and the experience only got worse from there:

“I go to this place and they put me on sticks and woods and they start

Van Damme Shares His Side of Infamous Predator Firing

Van Damme Shares His Side of Infamous Predator Firing
Jean-Claude Van Damme is finally breaking his silence on the events surrounding his firing from 1987's Predator. The actor is currently promoting his latest movie We All Die Young, which is out today on VOD and in select theaters. Back when Van Damme was working on Predator, he was brand-new in the entertainment business and wanted to make a name for himself, specifically focusing on his martial arts background, which he wanted to include in the movie. There are several different accounts regarding his firing, but we'll go with his side of the story first.

As it turns out, Jean-Claude Van Damme knew right from the start that things weren't going to work out for him while working on Predator. One thing that everybody can agree on is that it was hot and humid working on location in Puerto Vallarta during the production. Van Damme says, "I've got my friend

Olivia Munn confirms that Psylocke won’t appear in X-Men: Dark Phoenix

While X-Men: Dark Phoenix will bring back the majority of the cast of 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, one mutant who’ll be absent from the latest – and presumably final – chapter of Fox’s X-Men series is Psylocke, played by Olivia Munn.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Munn confirmed that she was forced to sit out Dark Phoenix due to scheduling conflicts, stating that: “I was filming The Predator at the time so there wasn’t time for me to film it and so I’m not in it.”

The actress also went on to reveal that she has to remain tight-lipped about the franchise, having been politely reprimanded by Fox for her previous comments when she suggested that Dark Phoenix could be split into two movies:

“I can’t say anything because last time I said a little bit they sent me a note. But I’m not in it.”

Olivia Munn Says Speaking Out Against ‘Predator’ Sex Offender Made A Difference – TCA

  • Deadline
Following her TCA appearance today for Starz’s spy series The Rook, Olivia Munn addressed questions about the fallout from The Predator scandal last September which saw the actress shunned by her fellow cast after alerting Fox that she shared a scene with a registered sex offender and that the scene needed to be cut. The studio deleted the scene, and director Shane Black apologized via The Los Angeles Times and Associated Press.

Munn informed TCA reporters today that in the wake of the whole ordeal, she did hear back from Black who left a message with her publicist “that he wanted to talk. It’s something that now the ball is in my court, and I have to reach out but….there’s a lot that transpired that I needed to digest.”

Munn expressed how last fall was a challenging time for her to take a stand; how she

FX Acquires ‘Venom’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse’, ‘Green Book’ & More Movies

  • Deadline
FX Networks continues to snap up all marquee movie titles that become available. Over the past six months, the network has acquired such commercial and critical hits as Venom and the Oscar-nominated Bohemian Rhapsody, Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and Green Book.

FX, whose movie deals also include streaming rights to make the films available on the network’s digital platforms, several years ago pulled away from off-network series, opting to spend the bulk of its acquisition budget on theatrical films instead. With a few rare exceptions, most notably The Big Bang Theory, movies significantly outperform off-network series on basic cable, they have longer shelf lives and deliver a wide range of audiences that can sample new original series launching behind them.

The list of recent FX movie acquisitions include Halloween, Bumblebee, Night School, The First Purge, Peter Rabbit, First Man, BlacKkKlansman, Book Club, The Meg, Breaking In, The House with a Clock In Its Walls,

Disney Confirms That The Future Of The Alien And Predator Franchises Is R-Rated

Disney’s impending merger with Fox will result in them owning an enormous chunk of the cultural landscape. The biggest prize is, of course, the X-Men and Fantastic Four rights, which will mean the characters can be incorporated into the McU and bring Disney very close to their dream of owning the IP to the entire Marvel Universe. But there’s a couple of other big franchises whose ownership by the Mouse House might spell choppy waters ahead. I’m talking about the often intertwined Alien and Predator properties.

Fans had feared that Disney’s reticence to release any movies above a PG-13 rating might be the kiss of death for these franchises, but this week, CEO Bob Iger assured us that R-rated properties would indeed continue. During a quarterly earnings call, Iger took a question asking specifically about Fox’s R-rated material, to which he replied that there are
