Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain to Star in Video Game Adaptation 'The Division'

Fri, 01/20/2017 - 06:23

Every movie adaptation is bound to have its own unique set of obstacles. That's just what happens when you move from one medium to another. Maybe a comic book's art style is a huge part of its appeal. Maybe a hit book is filled with inner monologues you just can't re-create in a movie. In the case of video game adaptations, the obstacle is what happens when you remove the interactivity from something that is inherently interactive. Thankfully that's less of a problem...

Exclusive Clip: A 'xXx' Skateboarding Scene You Absolutely Must See

Thu, 01/19/2017 - 08:00

If you remember from the last installment of this franchise, 2005's xXx: State of the Union, Vin Diesel's extreme sports thrill seeker was "killed off" in the beginning of the movie -- Diesel himself hasn't appeared in the series since the first movie in 2002. But he's back in action (like, crazy, stunt-filled action) with xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, coming out of self-imposed exile to team up with a global group of likeminded cohorts and stop a villain trying to...

Your '90s Trapper Keeper Is Being Turned into a Movie. No, Seriously

Thu, 01/19/2017 - 06:31

If you went to school in the late '80s or '90s, you'll no doubt know that nothing mattered more than the cover art on your Trapper Keeper. Maybe you were a Transformers kid. Maybe you had a totally rad sports car. Maybe you had unicorns and rainbows. Whatever the case, we can all agree that Trapper Keeper were kind of a big deal. And now they're going to be a big deal on the big screen, too. THR reports '90s trapper keeper art icon Lisa Frank is teaming up with...

The Animated Spider-Man Movie Will Officially Be About Miles Morales, Not Peter Parker

Thu, 01/19/2017 - 06:30

If your only exposure to Spider-Man has been through the live-action movies, then you've only ever known the one Spider-Man. Sure, he may have been played by three different actors with three different takes, but every time they were playing Peter Parker. He's not the only teen to ever put on the Spidey suit, though. The other big name to do so is Miles Morales, and he's finally getting a movie. No, the Tom Holland Spider-Man we just met in Captain America: Civil War isn't...

New 'Power Rangers' Trailer Finally Shows Off What You've Been Waiting to See

Thu, 01/19/2017 - 06:26

So far the marketing for the Power Rangers movie has been kind of shy about showing off. We got to see the character intros and how they all come across their suits, but the first trailer didn't have any big, full-body shots of the Rangers fighting in those suits. There were definitely no shots of their Zords (which is the name of the vehicles they pilot) or the bad guys they'd be fighting. Basically, we had no sense of it as an action movie, just as a drama about teens that come into...

Watch: This New 'Logan' Trailer Will Claw Your Heart Out

Thu, 01/19/2017 - 05:19

This March 3, Hugh Jackman straps on those adamantium claws one last time (or so he says) for the actor's final outing as the X-Men character Wolverine in Logan. This will be Jackman's ninth time portraying Logan, aka Wolverine, in a film (including cameos), and his tenure as the clawed antihero dates all the way back to that first X-Men movie in 2000. While Jackman has played Wolverine for the past 17 years, early buzz around Logan signals that it may be his...

Wed, 01/18/2017 - 09:00

The Sundance Film Festival is one of the biggest and most important fests of the year, and with good reason: some of our most famous and venerated directors working today premiered their first work there, people like Darren Aronofsky (Pi), Paul Thomas Anderson (Cigarettes & Coffee), Alexander Payne (Citizen Ruth) and Steven Soderbergh (Sex, Lies, and Videotape). This year should be no different, as a host of new faces and cool newcomers are making appearances with films like Newness,...

Wed, 01/18/2017 - 09:00

Everyone knows (and okay, admit it, secretly loves) the fast-food chain McDonald's -- it's one of the most popular places to eat no matter where you are in the world. But do many people know how the franchise got its start? Here to inform you is the biopic The Founder, which tells the story of a traveling milkshake salesman in 1950s Illinois named Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton) and his somewhat shady history with the chain.

'My Pet Dinosaur' Trailer Is Totally Not 'E.T.' with a Dinosaur (It Totally Is)

Wed, 01/18/2017 - 07:28

It's hard to see a movie about neighborhood kids trying to hide something supernatural from their parents and not think of E.T.  Three decades later and the second we see a batch of kids moving around dimly lit woods or hiding things in their closet we immediately think of Elliott and his new, wrinkly friend. That's just the power of Spielberg. The Spielberg shadow isn't just cast on American movies, either. It reaches all the way around the world, as you can so readily...

'White Men Can't Jump' Is Getting a Remake from the Creator of 'Black-ish'

Wed, 01/18/2017 - 07:25

White Men Can't Jump is being remade. Let's just get that little bit of surprise out of the way. It's shocking not because the original is the Citizen Kane of sports movies and should be considered untouchable for a remake, but because it's a movie that was so, so very specific to the time in which it came out. It's one of the most unapologetically '90s movies ever. Its sense of humor, its cast, its soundtrack, the editing, the cinematography, the hats (!) -- every frame...

'Beauty and the Beast' Star Emma Watson Explains Why She Chose Belle Over Cinderella

Wed, 01/18/2017 - 07:23

Emma Watson made her movie debut at the age of 11 in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and literally grew up on-screen. But it wasn't until the series concluded in 2011 that we started to get a sense of her range as an actress, apart from her signature role as Hermione Granger. She acquitted herself quite well in My Week with Marilyn and The Perks of Being a Wallflower, capably handling key supporting roles. Watson really stood out in Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, as a...
