'A Bad Moms Christmas' Is Coming in 2017

Tue, 12/27/2016 - 06:26

The raunchy comedy The Hangover burst out as an early summer box office hit back in 2009, earning special plaudits for Bradley Cooper as a leading man. The secret ingredient, however, was the original screenplay by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who were also responsible for Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, a smaller success released the month before The Hangover. The writing duo soon made their directorial debut with 21 & Over, another foul-mouthed comedy that starred Miles Teller and somewhat...

Is 'A Monster Calls' Ok for Your Kids?

Fri, 12/23/2016 - 09:00

Don’t be fooled by the fact that A Monster Calls features a 12-year-old protagonist and stunningly rendered animation scenes amid live action. This is not your typical kids’ film. Far from it. As fans of the book by Patrick Ness are well aware, the movie deals with how a young Irish lad copes with the impending death of his mom, aided by a menacing tree creature (growlingly voiced by the magnificent Liam Neeson). Such affairs of the heart and soul can be a raw mess of emotions and we...

'Blade Runner 2049' Director Says They Rarely Used a Green Screen on Set

Thu, 12/22/2016 - 06:00

Fret not, worrisome humans, when Blade Runner 2049 hits theaters next year, Replicants will be hunted down with all the gritty luxury that an R rating affords. Granted it shouldn't be bombshell news that a sequel to an R-rated movie is also rated R, but we live in an age where such things are no longer guarantees. The more expensive a movie is, the harder it becomes to justify its R rating. This is why movies like Alien vs. Predator and Live Free or Die Hard opted for tamer PG-13...

Stallone, Statham and Schwarzenegger to Return for 'The Expendables 4'

Thu, 12/22/2016 - 05:55

As action movie stars aged in the past, they tended to be left behind by Hollywood. The thinking was that audiences wouldn't accept older actors as kick-ass heroes. Things began to change, however, when Sylvester Stallone successfully brought boxer Rocky Balboa back to the big screen 10 years ago, showing that audiences would still respond to lovable action figures, even if they were older and moved a bit slower. While Rocky Balboa was more of a character drama, Stallone's Rambo was...
