Danny McBride Boards a Spaceship for ‘Alien: Covenant’

Danny McBride in Eastbound and Down

It was a given that Michael Fassbender would return for Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant, and the addition of Katherine Waterston as his new leading lady wasn’t exactly surprising either — she’s exactly the kind of young, on-the-verge star you’d expect to see cast in a big-budget blockbuster like this.

The newest new cast member, however, is definitely unexpected. Danny McBride is reportedly in talks to join the outer-space adventure. It’s a rare foray into dramatic territory for the actor, who’s best known for comedy projects like Eastbound and DownRead More »

hardcore henry trailer

I’m fascinated by how the language of video games has begun to leak into filmmaking. As gaming has become more commonplace and mainstream, a new generation of directors raised with controllers in their hands have begun to blend the mediums. And you don’t just see this in big, dumb action movies – the stylistically ambitious drama Son of Saul bears a distinctive video game thumbprint, whether anyone wants to admit it or not.

But Hardcore Henry wears its video game influences on its sleeve in a huge way and it is very much a big, dumb action movie, albeit one of the more ambitious big, dumb action movies to come around in quite some time. A new trailer for this insane exercise in mayhem has arrived and it teases a movie that looks to be, for better and worse, unlike anything we’ve seen before.

house of cards season 4 trailer

I’ve joked a few times about Netflix‘s approach to marketing the fourth season of House of Cards, which has mostly entailed them nothing at all. There has been some viral marketing and some vague teasers, but otherwise, the the streaming service’s flagship series has been awfully quiet for a pop culture juggernaut that is less than a month away.

And right on cue, the first proper House of Cards season 4 trailer has arrived. Don’t give Netflix too much credit, though – this is still very much a teaser. They know they have a built-in audience for this show no matter what they show off in previews.

the program trailer

A few weeks ago it was announced The Program will premiere on DirecTV this month. The Lance Armstrong biopic was shot almost two and a half years ago, but The Program has taken its time getting to the big screen, for unknown reasons. The former potential awards contender is directed by Stephen Frears (High Fidelity) and, in the starring role as the disgraced cyclist, is Ben Foster.

Below, watch The Program trailer.

Battlestar Galactica

Just as Bill Adama refused to give up on humanity, even after countless Cylon attacks and supply outages and political disputes, Hollywood is not giving up on the notion of a Battlestar Galactica movie, no matter how many false starts they’ve had in the past. The latest team to attempt to try and maneuver this big old spaceship to the big screen will be Michael De Luca and Scott Stuber, who are producing for Universal.  Read More »

Zoolander 2 trailer

Ben Stiller had been trying to make Zoolander 2 for years. Originally going to be directed by the film’s co-writer and co-star, Justin Theroux, Stiller returned to the director’s chair for the comedy sequel. It’s been almost 15 years since the first movie, so we have to ask: is there still an appetite for these characters? After all these years apart from Derek (Ben Stiller) and Hansel (Owen Wilson), are they still funny?

Find out what critics are saying about the film below.

How The Force Awakens Should Have Ended

Now that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been seen by billions, everyone has their theories about what the future holds for our the sci-fi saga. There are plenty of ideas about Rey’s past, the identity of Supreme Leader Snoke, and just what Luke Skywalker has been up to, but the folks over at How It Should Have Ended just want to have a little fun by shaking up more than a few scenes from the sequel. From TR-8R’s encounter with Finn to the lightspeed approach to Starkiller Base, there are a lot of ways that the main characters of The Force Awakens could have had a much different outcome.

Deadpool

Despite the fact that Deadpool doesn’t officially open for another two days, plenty of people have already seen it. Critics began posting their reviews over the weekend, and fans treated to sneak previews were sharing their excited reactions even before that. Still, as we reported earlier this week, there was one major detail missing from those early screenings: the second post-credits sequence.

The good, right, Professor X-approved thing to do here would be to buy a ticket to see Deadpool in theaters this weekend, and see the scene in its proper context. But Deadpool probably wouldn’t be the kind of guy to resist getting the dirty details in advance, and if you can’t either we’ve got them after the jump. (And then you should still buy a ticket to see Deadpool in theaters this weekend, because it’s really fun and even better with an enthusiastic crowd.) Here’s a little clue: it teases the addition of a major new character to the X-Men cinematic universe.  Read More »
