Sun, 01/15/2017 - 13:28

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is this coming weekend and what better way to help spread the message of equality and tolerance than with these eight great movies? Selma Director Ava DuVernay's piercing look at the equal rights march from Selma to Montgomery in Alabama is now among the definitive Martin Luther King Jr. movies. David Oyelowo's performance as King is as uncanny as it is inspirational, and the story itself is still as relevant today as it was back in 1965 when the...

Superhero Buzz: Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam, 'Deadpool 2' and 'The Defenders'

Fri, 01/13/2017 - 06:17

More than two years ago, Dwayne Johnson confirmed that he would be playing the villainous Black Adam in an upcoming DC Comics movie. Though no other details were provided at the time, it appeared to be a reasonable assumption that Black Adam would be a character in a planned Shazam movie. Recently Johnson shared a photo with Henry Cavill, best known as Superman, teasing the idea that Black Adam and Superman might appear together before the Shazam movie. Now Johnson has shared a new photo,...

The First 'CHiPs' Trailer Chases the '21 Jump Street' Beat

Thu, 01/12/2017 - 06:46

In retrospect, 21 Jump Street may have been one of the most influential movies of the last five years. It launched directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller's career as live-action directors (they'd been in animation up until that point), and now they're doing the young Han Solo movie. It proved that R-rated action-comedies could still be smart, creative and drive huge box office numbers, helping open the door for a wave of movies like The...

Star Wars Bites: Woody Harrelson Gets Official, While a Live-Action TV Show Is Still Far, Far Away

Thu, 01/12/2017 - 05:52

Last week a report emerged that the filmmakers behind the young Han Solo movie wanted Woody Harrelson for a key role as a mentor to Han. The Internet quickly fell in love with the idea, mainly because Woody Harrelson is one of the few actors that everyone seems to agree is a gift to every movie he's in. And now thankfully none of us have to fall out of love with that idea since the casting just became official.  Of course this didn't come with any extra news or details...

Will Smith May Star in Disney's Live-Action 'Dumbo' Remake

Thu, 01/12/2017 - 05:48

Does Will Smith have the ears to pull it off? That's the first response we have to the news that the former Fresh Prince will be starring in Disney's live-action remake of Dumbo. Deadline has the exclusive but no details, not even what sort of character Smith would play in the movie. For all we know, he could at least be the voice of the CG elephant. Chances are, however, he'll be on-screen in some sort of human role.   Dumbo is being helmed by Tim Burton, who...

The 'Wonder Woman' Villain Has a Name, but Still No Face

Thu, 01/12/2017 - 05:45

Wonder Woman hasn't exactly been shying away from the press. Throughout its production we've gotten a bunch of official on-set photos. New footage has come out every few months. The trailers have shown off all kinds of cool scenes and set pieces. That said, one thing has been missing this entire time: a villain. So far Wonder Woman has largely escaped the scrutiny of wondering who the big bad could be because, well, the villain kind of seems like all of mankind. It is after all a...

Ben Affleck Could Get 'The Batman' Done Sooner if Everyone Just Stopped Asking Him About It

Wed, 01/11/2017 - 07:27

It's impossible to be an actor involved with a blockbuster franchise and not be constantly inundated with questions about the next movie. If you're a Star Wars actor out promoting a small indie drama you did, good luck escaping questions about who Rey's parents are. Actors in superhero movies can't even read a comic book in public without fans taking pictures and trying to figure out what it all means. That's obviously part and parcel with the territory. You...

Tom Holland Says Spider-Man Will Also Be in 'Avengers: Infinity War'

Wed, 01/11/2017 - 07:25

A few weeks ago a casting call hit the Web that reported to be for Avengers: Infinity War and its currently unnamed sequel, which begin filming back-to-back in just a few weeks. The call included a huge roster of names, including some from recent movies like Doctor Strange. It did not, however, include Tom Holland's Spider-Man. This of course is far, far from a guarantee that the wall crawler wouldn't be appearing in the next giant Marvel movie, but his absence was certainly curious....

Ladies' Night In: Classic '90s Movies for Moms

Tue, 01/10/2017 - 09:00

Those of us with small children know that time away from momdom is a luxury and it can be hard to get out. So we have a suggestion: Host a retro moms’ night in! Flash back to a time when dinner offerings went beyond mac and cheese and chicken nuggets, when you tidied up the house and it was still clean four hours later and when you spent more at Sephora than Babies R Us. That's right, we're talking about the pre-parental 1990s! Here are some films for you and your chums that are...

Rev Up: Family Movies Featuring Cars and Trucks

Tue, 01/10/2017 - 09:00

Merging two great things together often creates one magnificent thing (peanut butter and chocolate lovers know exactly what I am talking about). Many kids love zany monster movies and many kids love films with racing or cool vehicles. When you squoosh those two genres together you get: Monster Trucks (the movie). When my 7 year old son originally saw the trailer for this new family film about a monster who dwells inside a monster truck, he pumped his fist in the air and cheered. This may be...

New 'Cars 3' Trailer Shows What Happens to Lightning McQueen After His Crash

Tue, 01/10/2017 - 06:27

The first teaser trailer for Cars 3 sidestepped everyone's expectations. All it consisted of was Lightning McQueen getting into a gnarly car crash followed by a promise that everything would change. It wasn't exactly the smiling, big-eyed wonderment one expects from one of Pixar's more kid-oriented franchises.  But now we've got a longer trailer that shows what happens after Lightning's calamitous crash and thankfully things are looking a bit more optimistic....
