Check Out the Teaser Trailer and Poster for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 09:05

The best way to describe the first teaser trailer and poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is, well, chillaxed.  In the poster, the main cast is front and center, chilling up against some wall like they own the joint. It looks like the cover of an album some rock band would put out in the '70s -- all cool, calm and black and white; it's almost as if this crew is a little bored of being badasses. Case in point: the amusing use of the word "obviously" below the...

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 09:00

Nothing comes between a man and his dog -- until it does, and then all hell breaks loose in In a Valley of Violence, a Western reminiscent of Quentin Tarantino and old spaghetti Westerns with a mean sense of humor and twisted performances from Ethan Hawke, John Travolta and Taissa Farmiga. In the movie, Hawke plays a stranger who comes to a rundown town ruled by a crooked sheriff (Travolta), whose son (James Ransone) has a problem with the new arrivals. This sets off a chain of events you...

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 06:34

If you're a hard-core Star Wars fan who already owns a copy of The Force Awakens and needs a major incentive to also pick up the upcoming 3D Collector's Edition Blu-ray, we've got some. First, the special release will feature a never-before-seen deleted scene from Maz Kanata's tavern, and it's a nice little tribute to part of the Cantina scene from the original movie.  Entertainment Weekly was able to share part of the scene, so we've got a...

'The Ring' Director's New Horror Movie Wants to Sell You 'A Cure for Wellness'

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 06:29

Gore Verbinski is best known for making massive blockbuster films with increasingly elaborate action set pieces. That's just what happens when you make something like the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy that goes on to earn over a billion dollars and become a legit pop-culture phenomenon. But Verbinski is more than capable of keeping things small and intimate. In fact, he thrives when making the smaller stuff. One of Verbinski's finest films is the 2002's The Ring, a...

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 06:26

If October has you in the mood to watch a new horror movie on the big screen, unfortunately this year your options are pretty limited. For whatever reason, major studios have stopped inundating pre-Halloween weekends with new horror movies. Fortunately, however, Ouija: Origin of Evil, the one wide horror release coming up, actually looks pretty good. Directed by Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus), Ouija: Origin of Evil is, as the name implies, a prequel to the 2014 movie about teens who make...

Tue, 10/18/2016 - 06:38

One of the more challenging times for both parents and children is when a new sibling enters the picture. They're extra needy and extra insane, and for the older brother or sister that means much of the attention is being diverted away from you. It's those very familiar themes that will apparently be explored in The Boss Baby, a new animated film from DreamWorks Animation due out March 31, 2017. It features the voice of Alec Baldwin as a baby who wreaks havoc on a seven year...

'Captain Planet' Movie Heading to Big Screen, Maybe with Leonardo DiCaprio

Tue, 10/18/2016 - 06:21

Let's return to the early 1990s for a fond, animated memory. Captain Planet and the Planeteeers launched on the TBS cable network from September 1990 to December 1992, followed by a sequel series that ran from September 1993 to May 1996. By today's standards, the animation looks rudimentary. But despite the age of the shows, the focus on a positive environmental message remains relevant today. The series revolved around a diverse teenage team of so-called "planeteers,"...

Are Your Tweens or Teens Ready for These Retro Thrillers?

Mon, 10/17/2016 - 09:00

I’m just going to own it: I am a jumper. Any loud noise or sudden movement in a film and I leap out of my seat. I watch scary movies with my hands covering up most of my face, my eyes squinting through the tiny cracks. It works for me. I (sometimes) think it is fun and exciting to be scared during a film. When I was a kid I eagerly saw many, many scary films, but often from the safety of a blanket fort or clutching the hand of a friend. Experiencing a scary film is more than just the...

'Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk' Offers a Brand New Way to Watch a Movie

Mon, 10/17/2016 - 06:51

The success of recent films like American Sniper and Lone Survivor has paved the way for a new crop of war movies that isolate individual soldier stories, many of them true, and moviegoers are feasting on them. In November alone there are two, Mel Gibson's Hacksaw Ridge and Ang Lee's Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, while Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk awaits us this July. But it's Billy Lynn -- based on Ben Fountain's acclaimed novel of the same name --  that takes...
