Deadpool Sequel

After years of waiting, Deadpool is finally opening in theaters, and so far most critics agree the wait was worth it. The Marvel character was once looked upon as an underdog, struggling to get his own movie made, but now the 20th Century Fox project, after plenty of clever marketing, is tracking to open big this weekend. Feeling confident, the studio already has a Deadpool sequel in the works.

Goldie Hawn Amy Schumer

Not too long ago, we heard about First Wives Club stars Bette Midler, Diane Keaton and Goldie Hawn reuniting for a comedy at Netflix called Divanation about three former members of a popular singing group who are forced to reunite after being apart for 30 years. And it sounds like Hawn is lining up another role that will take her back to the big screen as well.

News has surfaced that Goldie Hawn is in early talks to play Amy Schumer‘s mother in the untitled comedy from Warm Bodies and 50/50 director Jonathan Levine that we first heard about last August. Find out more about this Goldie Hawn Amy Schumer team-up after the jump. Read More »

Ghostbusters 2 End of the World

If you’re one of those people who thinks the Ghostbusters reboot starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones just shouldn’t happen, even though we’ll get an awesome LEGO set out of it, the old Ghostbusters franchise may hold some hope for you. But beware that it will ruin a lot of other things for you as well.

Although Ghostbusters 2 isn’t anywhere near as beloved as the first film starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson, it’s still a rather enjoyable sequel. One of the more amusing elements of the sequel was learning what Dr. Peter Venkman was up to after the first film, which included having his own talk show called The World of the Psychic. In one of the tapings of the show that we see, one of the guest psychics predicts the end of the world, and it just so happens to be nearly upon us. Read More »

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World - Sex Bob-Omb

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, the Honest Trailers team is taking on one of the internet’s favorite love stories: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. And it will probably not surprise you too much to discover that, like so many other movie romances we hold near and dear to our hearts, it completely falls apart under a bit of real-world scrutiny.

Or, in the blunt words of the Honest Trailer narrator, that it’s “two hours of pure nerd wish-fullfillment” in which every character but Knives is secretly “a horrible garbage person.” But hey, they do really love Edgar Wright‘s slick, video game-inspired style. Watch the Scott Pilgrim Honest Trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Ready Player One movie

A few weeks ago, Disney bumped Star Wars Episode VIII from May 2017 to December 15, 2017. The move made perfect sense from a business standpoint: Episode VII had a record-breaking run in December, and why fix what’s not broken? But the announcement put the rest of the 2017 release calendar into disarray. Pirates of the Caribbean moved from July to MaySpider-Man swung from late July to early JulyJumanji jumped up from December to July.

And the effects are still rippling outward. Now Steven Spielberg‘s Ready Player One has been pushed off the 2017 slate entirely, in an effort to get out of Episode VIII‘s way. Meanwhile, The Flash is, appropriately enough, getting here a bit faster than we expected — it’s been bumped up one week by Warner Bros.  Read More »

Finding Dory Posters

How can a forgetful fish, who doesn’t remember anything about her past, find her family? We’ll find out this summer when Disney and Pixar Animation bring their sequel Finding Dory to theaters.

So far we’ve only seen a little bit of the new adventure as Dory (Ellen Degeneres) starts to have flashes of her past, driving her to finally seek out her long-lost parents, who will be voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy. But a new trailer might be on the way soon, because we just got a batch of new Finding Dory posters that are very fitting considering the film’s title. Plus, these posters just showcase how beautiful Pixar’s animation has gotten over the year, and I can’t wait to see how the underwater environments for Finding Dory have improved in the 13 years since Finding Nemo was released.
