Better Call Saul Season 2

If AMC puts out a show and Chris Hardwick isn’t there to talk about it with a bunch of celebrities immediately afterward, did it ever really air at all? Increasingly, the answer seems to be no. Following the success of Talking Dead and Talking Bad — Hardwick’s live talk shows about The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad — AMC has announced it’s launching Talking Saul. The first episode will air right after Better Call Saul‘s season 2 premiere on Monday.  Read More »

Smurfs The Lost Village

Nearly a year ago, we found out that Sony was going to take The Smurfs in an all-new direction on the big screen. Instead of continuing the live-action animation hybrid franchise, they opted to have Sony Pictures Animation develop an all-new animated film that would essentially reboot the blue creatures on film. Now the film has a title and more voices to add to its roster.

The movie is called Smurfs: The Lost Village, and it will follow Smurfette (Demi Lovato) on a journey to find out what her purpose in life is, and why she’s the only girl in the village. But she won’t be alone, as her three brothers Brainy, Hefty and Clumsy will be joining her. But who will be voicing the sibling trio? Find out below along with the first Smurfs The Lost Village images. Read More »

zootopia clips

Man, Zootopia sure looks cute. Like really cute. Okay, it looks adorable. Heart-meltingly adorable. Every trailer for this film has made me saw “aww” more than I’d care to admit, because it’s not like an animated Disney film starring a colorful cast of easily merchandisable rabbits and foxes and what-have-you needs my help. Zootopia certainly looks like it has the potential to be huge without me gushing about nice it looks.

Two new clips from the film have arrived online highlighting Ginnifer Goodwin rabbit police officer Judy Hopps. And yes, both of them are unreasonably, unbearably cute.

new betty boop

Any character with longevity risks losing their identity. Just look to Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, who used to embark on wild, globetrotting adventures full of comedic mayhem and now spend their days acting as the literal mascots for the Walt Disney Company and little more. Time has turned them into symbols rather than characters, and those with the power to remind audiences of why they were beloved in the first place don’t want to risk tarnishing those symbols. After all, they move a lot of Mickey merchandise just by playing it safe.

Another victim of this phenomenon is Betty Boop, the most famous creation of the great animator Max Fleischer, whose Depression-era cartoon shorts are often still astonishing today. The years have transformed Ms. Boop, an adventure and disaster-prone flapper girl who starred in dozens of shorts throughout the 1930s and beyond, into a cartoon figurehead who exists just to appear on T-shirts and keychains. But now, that may change, as a new Betty Boop animated series is in the works.

Transformers Age of Extinction - Bumblebee

Earlier today, we reported that Paramount Pictures had set dates for Transformers 5, 6, and 7 in 2017, 2018, and 2019. Well, it turns out that wasn’t exactly accurate. While it is true we’re getting three more Transformers movies over the next three years, they won’t all be direct sequels. One of them will be a spinoff featuring Bumblebee (that’s the yellow one, for those of you who suffer from a Transformers-specific form of face blindness).  Read More »

Lethal Weapon TV Series

Undoubtedly, the new trend in network television is bringing back movies that have been around for years and retooling them as TV shows. Limitless and Minority Report have already made the jump, Training Day, Rush Hour and Cruel Intentions are on the way, and now one more is being thrown together at Fox.

The network has just ordered a TV pilot based on the classic action franchise Lethal Weapon starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, and they already have Damon Wayans Sr. lined up to take the latter’s role as LAPD detective Roger Murtaugh.

Zootopia reviews

Walt Disney Animation Studios has been on a roll in recent years, with a list of films that includes Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled, Big Hero 6, Frozen and the short films Feast and Paperman. Many people would say that the Burbank-based animation studio has been turning out more consistently great films than their Emmerville brother Pixar. Their latest film Zootopia from directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore (Bolt, Tangled) is set to hit theaters in the US in March 2016, and the first trade reviews have begun to hit online as the film is being released early in international markets (under the alternate title Zootropolis).

Does Disney Animation have another hit on their hands or will this be their Good Dinosaur? Find out as we take a look at the early Zootopia reviews through spoiler-free excerpts, after the jump.

xxx 3 donnie yen

At first, XXX: The Return of Xander Cage seemed like a pipe dream, a thing Vin Diesel would bring up in interviews as part of a desperate ploy to have a wingless angel assigned to his case. And now it’s actually filming with director D.J. Caruso at the helm and a genuinely bizarre ensemble of actors filling out the space not taken up by Diesel-bulk. However, it look like one of the previously announced actors won’t be in the film after all.

Jet Li has apparently dropped out of the latest XXX film, but Donnie Yen has quickly taken his place. Let’s get really honest for a second: the production has traded up here.
