kingsman the golden circle trailer

There are quibbles to be had with director Matthew Vaughn‘s Kingsman: The Secret Service, but it has such a fresh, bizarre, and anarchic energy – it’s easy to forgive the hiccups and speed bumps and embrace the bigger picture. When the credits roll, you’re ready to see more ultra-violent spy adventures starring this crew. With the set-up out of the way, a sequel can hit the ground running and sprint directly into the craziness of the first film’s third act.

The first Kingsman: The Golden Circle trailer has arrived and, at first glance, it appears to live up to the first film’s audaciousness.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Set Photo

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters in less than two weeks and our third most anticipated movie of the summer has been receiving mostly warm notices so far. James Gunn‘s sequel to his 2014 hit looks to double down on everything that made the first movie such a smash: strange but lovable characters, wild action, colorful science fiction, and heroes who spend as much time bickering as they do guarding the galaxy.

And while promotional featurettes don’t necessarily reflect the arduous process of making a big budget feature film, this particular one does make the process of making Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 look like a whole lot of fun.

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

Earlier today, we reported how the full title of Avengers 4 is being kept under guard because it would spoil aspects of Avengers: Infinity War. Now, thanks to some loose lips during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press tour, that title may have just been revealed and it’s going to raise the eyebrow of many comic book fans…while meaning pretty much nothing to most civilians.

In the interest of guarding you from potential spoilers, we’re going you a chance to opt out right now. If you’re interested in the possible Avengers 4 title, here you go.

Logan Lucky plot details

When Steven Soderbergh first read Rebecca Blunt’s script, Logan Lucky, it was to make a suggestion for who should direct. This was in the fall of 2014 after the Traffic and Magic Mike director announced his retirement from moviemaking. After reading Blunt’s script, though, Soderbergh was inspired enough to return to features.

His first theatrical release since 2013’s Side Effects comes out this August. Logan Lucky is another heist movie from Soderbergh, but he describes it as an “inversion of an Ocean’s movie,” without the gloss and cool factor. Below, the director shares some Logan Lucky plot details and discusses his return to directing movies.

Churchill Trailer - Brian Cox

Hollywood loves history, but it can be a real challenge to bring a real life event to the big screen, especially when it involves people that some of the public lived through and experienced through the radio and television. Churchill will attempt to chronicle the struggle of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Brian Cox) as he deals with the impending start of D-Day during World War II in 1944. It looks like it could be a typical awards contender, but that might be difficult since the movie hits theaters this summer.

Watch the Churchill trailer below. Read More »

Netflix in theaters

Amazon made a big splash at this year’s Academy Awards, with Manchester by the Sea winning Oscars for Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay. Pundits cited Amazon’s theatrical model as having a big impact on that film’s wins, while another major streaming site, Netflix, has struggled to achieve similar awards outside of the documentary categories – perhaps due to its more limited theatrical distribution.

But Netflix’s new quarterly earnings report implies that changes could be brewing, and audiences may have the chance to see Netflix original movies on the big screen as well as at home.

Rampage Plot

The big screen has seen its fair share of giant movie monsters lately. Pacific Rim had humanity fight them off with giant robots called Jaegers, Godzilla returned to crush buildings and more in 2014, Kong: Skull Island pitted the giant ape King Kong against a slew of creepy monstrosities just last month, and even the indie world is bringing a huge creature into play controlled by Anne Hathaway in Colossal. And there are only more massive monsters coming.

Rampage is a new movie starring Dwayne Johnson based on the Midway arcade game of the same name from the 1980s. The game has players controlling humongous versions of an ape, a wolf and a lizard, all trying to cause as much city destruction as possible while avoiding the military trying to take them down with tanks, helicopters and more. That game is being turned in to a movie, and if you were somehow expecting it to be anything less silly than the game itself, we have some bad news. Read More »
