Are Your Kids Ready for 'Star Trek Beyond'?

Sun, 07/24/2016 - 22:27

Star Trek Beyond is the latest film in the popular sci-fi franchise, and as such there are some familiar tropes, nods to that which has come before, and the comfort that comes with it. For instance, there are plenty of jokes and ties that connect the audience to the original cast of the television series and the movies that it spawned, and more of the same with regard to the two previous films in this current universe—and they work. We get the jokes. We like the jokes. We are suckers for...

'Operation Avalanche' Trailer Blows the Lid Off the CIA's Faked Moon Landing

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 05:48

2016 has been a great year if you happen to get really into imagining rivalries between movies that are about similar topics. You've got The BFG and A Monster Calls, dueling movies about kids escaping the harsh reality of their real world by inventing giant friends. Come to think of it, Pete's Dragon could also fit in that mix. You've got huge movies about iconic superheroes battling each other in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War, and even...

A 'Pokémon' Movie Is Coming from the Makers of 'Pacific Rim' and 'Warcraft'

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 05:43

There are very, very few video games that have ever embedded themselves so deeply into pop culture that even people who have never played a game in their life would recognize them. Pokémon is one of those rare beasts. Its popularity has spread far and wide over the last decade, evolving from games to TV shows to movies to toys and pretty much everything in between. Right now it's basically impossible to walk around a city and not be within arm's length of someone...

Idris Elba, on Being the ‘Star Trek Beyond’ Villain and How Fans Will Feel About His Gunslinger in ‘The Dark Tower’

Thu, 07/21/2016 - 08:27

Before he joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Heimdall, before chasing Mowgli in The Jungle Book, before his Emmy nomination for Luther, Idris Elba was “Pizza Delivery Man.” Remember a ‘90s show called Space Precinct about an NYPD officer relocated to police a planet in space? Elba appeared briefly as a delivery guy for his second credited on-screen role — and the show didn’t even use his own voice. The world has since forgotten about Space Precinct, but...

Exclusive: Get to Know 'Suicide Squad''s Joker

Thu, 07/21/2016 - 07:55

"He's a psychotic, antisocial freak" -- we're guessing that's not even the half of it, if this clip is any indication. In Suicide Squad, Jared Leto's Joker is a rogue criminal, linked romantically to Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn. Jealous that she's part of the Suicide Squad, a team of villains the government has tasked with taking down another villain, the Joker goes and creates his own group of bad guys. How this all coalesces we have yet to find out, but see...

The 'Divergent' Series Won't End the Way Fans Were Expecting

Thu, 07/21/2016 - 06:56

Lionsgate is now planning to debut The Divergent Series: Ascendant on television rather than in theaters. According to Variety, the intention is then to launch a TV series with the same postapocalyptic setting. What is most surprising about the plan is that the first two films in the series were financially successful. Rising star Shailene Woodley (top) played Beatrice, born into a future society divided into five factions; she, however, doesn't truly fit into any faction and soon learns...

The Best and Worst Movie Presidents

Thu, 07/21/2016 - 06:52

The current political climate in the U.S. is, to put it nicely, insane. It doesn't matter what side of the aisle you're on. It doesn't matter whom you're voting for. It doesn't even matter if you're eligible to vote. 2016 is simply a crazy, unpredictable year for politics. We could all use a bit of a break from the madness that is the current election cycle, and what better way than to escape into a movie? Fandango polled over a thousand fans about their favorite...

This New 'Moana' Teaser Is a Slice of Beautiful Magic

Thu, 07/21/2016 - 06:48

People don't yet quite know what to expect from Moana, the forthcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios movie. Well, that's not entirely true. Audiences can reliably expect it to be good. After all, this is the studio coming off the hot streak of Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6 and Zootopia. The people there kind of know what they're doing. But audiences don't really know what to expect about the tone, plot or characters. That's kind of how Disney Animation sells its...

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 09:40

In Keanu, released in April of this year, the popular comedic duo Jordan Peele and Keegan-Michael Key star as a couple of decidedly un-macho guys with a penchant for George Michael songs who wind up in a comedy of errors and mistaken identity.

'Pretty Woman' Director Garry Marshall Dies at 81

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 08:39

In the 1970s, Garry Marshall gave us one of the earliest, and still greatest extended universes, consisting of 1950s nostalgia, a couple of goofy brewery workers and an alien from the planet Ork. More recently he'd been known for a certain kind of ensemble comedy with his movies New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day and this year's Mother's Day, but Marshall had an impressively diverse career over many decades before his death yesterday at 81 due to complications...

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 06:12

To many, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is simply remembered as that '90s kids show where teens got orders from a giant floating head to put on spandex and go fight lumpy monsters that kept popping up in the middle of the desert. There have been over 20 different versions of Power Rangers TV shows since the Mighty Morphin days of the early '90s. Granted, they pretty much all follow the same formula of teens fighting monsters, but still, Power Rangers has been on the air in...

Watch Vin Diesel in First 'xXx: The Return of Xander Cage' Trailer

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 06:07

"Guns, girls, global domination." Those words, spoken by Ruby Rose in the first trailer for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, provide an apt description for an action movie that looks like it will tip the scales of believability from its very first frame. That was also a hallmark of xXx back in 2002, which introduced Vin Diesel as Xander Cage, an extreme sports athlete who was recruited by the U.S. government for a secret mission. Agent Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L. Jackson)...
